For a time It seemed that his recovery waa assured, but age and worry Incident to the war caused, a relapse. It probably will be found that the affairs of the financier were so arranged that his death will cause little If any disturbance to the money markets. Born la 140. Nathaniel Mayer Rothschild, flist Baron Rothschild, was horn November . 1M0. eldest son of the late llaron Lionel Nathan De Rothschild, and was created an English peer In 1W. He was the head of the London bsnklng firm of N. M. i Rothschild & Sons, and he was the head of the British branch of this well known family of International bankers.

While It Is unknown Just what portion of the Rothschild fortune was In the pos session of the member who died today, the total Rothschild wealth has been es timated often 'as high as $2,009,000,000. Tha Rothschild wealth sprung from the fact that at the beginning of tho revo lution in America tho English hired the fcrces offered by the landgrave of Hesse Csssel for $10,000,000, and that ths land grave entrusted i this money to- a poor shopkeeper. Maler Amschel. who had gained tha landgrave's confidence through his skill at chess.

WEST ROADSJAKING MORE Carriers of East Earn Less Than Those Doing- Business Ont This Way. IOWA EXPERT ON THE STAND CHICAGO, March $1. Instead of grow ing poorer the western railroads are actually earning more than the eastern lines, according to Wayne O. Ellis, statis tician of the Iowa Railroad commission, who testified today at the Interstate Commerce commission hearing on the re quest of forty-one railroads for Increased freight rates. Mr. Ellla Introduced figures Intended to show that the' eastern railroads were earning an average of 4 per cent on their Investment, while t'ie western roads were earning 7 per cent. He enumerated roads In Iowa, Nebraska. North Dakota. South Dakota and Minnesota, which, he said, wero earning from to 16 per cent, and asserted these roads carried the bulk of the tonnago which would be benefited by the proposed advance. "All tho roads In this territory," he said, "were able to pay their operating expenses, taxes, Interest on bonds and debts, dividends on preferred stock and had enough left in 1914 to equal 8.7 per cent on their stock outstanding In the hands of the public. In lfflft they earned 10.6S per cent on the common stock." Witness explained that hia averages were obtained by Including the non dividend paying roads with those re garded as prosperous. Cross-examined by C. C. Wright, coun sel for the railroads, Mr. Ellis said he had made no personal Investigation and had acted merely In the capacity of a clerk in making computations from re rorts. Mr. Ellis said. In calculating the net operating income of all the western reads involved at $2Attl,000 in 1913, he Included leased as well as operated roads, and took no consideration of any duplications resulting from payments by the operating to the leased roads. "Your figures Include earnings from not only rail operations, but from Investments In other properties, d0 they not?" asked Mr. Wright. "Yes. sir." "You make no allowance tor Increased mileage that has been built In accounting for the Increased earnings shown, or for the fact that somo of ths mileage has been double or triple-tracked 7" "No. sir." ' The witness had Included the Atchison, Tope k a & SantaFe railroad as a repre sentative Iowa road, which helped to show a high rate tof earnings of all the roads in that state. "The Santa F lv.s only 1S7 miles In Iowa, hasn't It?" he was arted. He replied It had t-evn a mistake to In clude the Santa Fe Germans Drop One Hundred Bombs Near Russ House LONDON. March 31.

CITIZEN: "Because all fermented prod ucts are subject to a slight deterioration If not properly kept. Whiskey, on the other band, being distilled, not only cannot deteriorate, but often aida diges tion. This la what gives whiskey its admitted medicinal value."
