CREEK DROPS OUT OF SIGHT
or the Straitfcc Developments
of the Flood at Dayton,
Dayton, O., like many other sections
of tha country, can now claim a lost
river. Dayton didn't exactly lose tho
creek Itself, tho creek did that, but,
nevertheless, the creek Is gone, or rather
part of It Is.
The stream Is Poplar creek. It Is sup-
posod to empty Into tho Miami river Just
below tho Columbus, Hamilton & Day
ton bridge, but slnco the flood the creek
has stopped at tho bridge". Vhen tho
water from many sections of the sur
rounding territory was pouring Into tho
Miami river and eventually flooding Day
ton, Poplar creek was taking care thut
In tho future It would not empty Its
wateri Into tho Miami again.
Swirling under the bridge In great tor
rents, creating a suction that. It was
noxt to impossible for floating ob
jects to pa.ii through, tho water began
to dig Into the bed of tho creek. Soil.
gravol and rock wero hurled from their
resting places In the bed of tho stream,
and ovcntunlly tho water struck a spot
Which, Instead of giving way to tho
water, began to draw tho water 'into
This discovery, was mate by . J. K.
Barpes, whoso, .clalrjithat th'e' subter
ranean channels would carry off 'enough
water to avert another flood" proved
by tho fact that this strcani, which at
times becomes almost -Impassable, can
lose Itself pn entering the' subterranean
channel which It inado for Itself during
tho flood.' 'The . ordinary wldth ot the
creek Is about fifteen feet, -and It runs
In depth anywhere from a few Inches to
Thero Is a. space 'of about 200 foot be
tween tho bridgn nnd tho river through
which tho creek formerly flowed, but
not u drop of water has advanced any
further than the brldgo slnco tho flood.
Tho suction al tho spot whero the creok
disappears Is so great that articles
thrown into tho water aro drawn to the
bottom Immediately. Barnes estimates
that tho stream carries about 2,000 gat
Ions of water a minute Dayton Dis

Ancient Plan of Jnukaon'a tint tie of
Chnlmcttr Supports Dlsputeil
Interest In tho slumbering cotton-bale
theory of tho battle of Now Orleans was
aroused Saturday by the finding of a
water-color picture map pf tho original
battlu plan In an abandoned trunk tn the
cellar of the St. Charles hotel. Little Is
known about tho drawing or the other
contents of the trunk which has remained
unnoticed for years In a dark corner.
Five veterans nf the battle hnve added
their signatures to the remarkable map to
attest tho fact that it ts a true represen
tation of the battle plan as intde under
the direction of Andrew Jackson by his
military cnglnoor, H. Laclotte. It shows
a line ot cotton bales which a marginal
note says was l.Oto feet long with a pro
longment extending COO feet Into the
woods. Somo historians deny tho story
about the use of cotton bales.
The five veterans who say they fought
behind cotton bales were Joseph St. Cyr,
Jean Lamothe. P, M. 'Lapice, Charles
Raymond and Jean Gcrvals. Pen pictures
of these men appear In tho footnotes.
The finding of the picture Is timely as
It will be of lorvlco for the staging of the
battle, which Is to be one of tho leading
features of the Exposition of Big Ideas -New

STAND STRAIGHT TO THE JOB
Best Way to Get Uif Vul llorie
lioirer Out of Yonr Human
The way tho human body Is used Is of
th utmost Importance if the Person Is
to have ,tho best of health of which tho
person Is capable. With a person It Is
much the tamo as with tho automobile.
One represents a flfty-horsepowor engine,
another a forty, another a thirty, still
another a twenty, nnd If the body Is used
rightly th!s full amount of enotgy can ba
developed without harm. If the body
is used wrongly, as Is true with the ma
chine. It l)i uy bo ruined In developing
half tho amount Of tho designed horse
power. When rightly used, tho parts aro
all In balance; there ,1s no tmduo strain
to any pnrt, tho chest Is carried high,
so that the breathing Is easy, and thero
Is the full amount ot "wind power." Tho
abdominal organs aro properly supported
and work with tho least difficulty, tho
digestion and nutrition aro good. If .the
body Is drooped or buckles In. tho middle,
tho whole body suffers, and In mony
times disease conditions start In this
way. In-such drooped position the chest
Is flattened, so that the lungs cannot
work rightly nnd bocom,e weak, the .ab
domen in telescoped nnd tho stomach,
bowels and other . organs are crowded
together and work badly, so that indiges
tion nnd constipation rcsu'.t. Health, or
tho best posslblo efficiency, the full
horsepower of the person, cannot result
under such conditions any more than
an engine can develop. Its rated horse
power If the cylinders are full oi carbon.
or that tho fuel In the furnaco caii bo
consumed properly if tho drafts aro not
properly open or the ashes are not re
moved. Tho position most favorable for
health and In which tho load or bunion
of life can be carried most easily Is With
tho body, both when sitting, and when
standing, ns It would bt If a person wore
trylnp to sit or stand ns tall as possible.
This gives the high chest, the flat ah.
domcn, the erect head, square shoulders,
straight knees nnd tho springs of the
whole body nro set In the best' Way.
This Is the position recognized by tire.
amietic trainers, by tho singing teachers
nnd by all those who arc. expected to
train Individuals for great effort. The
samo position .n '"nt for every one,
whether thm eff rt be great or mall. or
whether the work be with the head or

tho burglar, turning sharply down a. side
alloy, disappeared from view.
Tho latter case calls to mind one which
happened tn Davenport, or rather In
Stoke, which Is the residential suburb ot
that town. A naval officer was aroused
nt ubout 3 a. m. on a winter morning by
hearing a slight clatter downstairs. He
picked up a sword and went down, and
located tho sound as having come from
the dining room.
Thero was a good deal of sliver there,
and he at once made up his mind that
burglars were arter It. Ho tried the door,
but found It fastened from the tnslde, so
went out of the front door and rushed
around to tho window.
But tho thloves had foreseen this ma

and as he reeled back, choked and halt

to their heels.
One of tho smartest tricks ever played
by a burglar was In house In tha
suburbs of Worcester. Tho man broke in
at night, and, after packing up somo sti
ver below, ventured upstairs to see what
he could find. The master of the house
spotted htm and called his son.
They located Mr. Sykes In a first 'floor
front room. His shadow was plainly vis
ible on the blind, outlined apparently by
n candle or lantern. Tho father kept
watch outside In tho front, while the sou
went for a policeman. When he returned
with tho officer the shadow was still
plainly visible. But when they went up
and entered tho room, behold thero was
nothing but an effigy mado with pillows
and n suit of clothes.
Tho Intruder, seelnc that he had been
discovered, had rapidly constructed this
to personate himself, nnd had then
oloarcd off' by means of a rope hanging

If Jbhn Milton's address wan handy
thero Is hardly a doubt hut what Abe
Ginsberg, attorney for- tho Tuesday Danc

him ah an export In the suit which ho
has brought for tho club against Mrs.
Joo Bock, who operates a dance palace
at "23 Nicollet avenue, two flights up.
Mrs. Beck canceled a lease which the
club held for tho uso of her hall Tues
day nights. Mrs. Beck says the club
stood for dancing which sho never, never
would permit .on any floor she had to do
And that Is where Mr. Milton well and
favorably known poet, gets into tho cose.
Mr. QlnsL'org says hla clients, tho ladles1
and gentlemen members of thn Tuesday
Dancing club, were merely having a good
time, and what is a good tlmo?

Blsea William Nash, attorney for Mrs.
Beck, tn rebuttal.
"Far bo It from me," saya Mr, Nash,
"to cast fish at this Mr, Milton, but that
nymph business can bo overworked. And
'nods nnd becks and wreathed smiles'
