It has been very properly decid

the road, whose interference pre

from behind, is liable for any re

if he wants to drive faster, has a
right to pass, but it often happens
that the one ahead, either from ill
nature, or mischievous foolery, ma
neuvers his vehicle so as to prevent
the other from having his right of

should decide that a public road is
not intended for the performance
of such pranks and that the hog or

Hope to Cure Cancer.
Scientists Find Disease and Trout
A strong hope of curing cancer,
or at least greatly ameliorating tbe
condition of cancer patients bv
means of inoculation, is held out in
the report of Harvey R. Gaylord,
director of the Cancer I.'.boratory
of the State Department of Health
at Buffalo, N. Y. This hope is
based on extended experiment tion
during tne pist year in tbe ocula
tion or vaccination of various ani
mals, mainly rats, with the cancer
In a considerable proportion of
cases immunity was raised to a
point which cured in the proportion
of 25 to 40 in rats. It might well
be applied to those cases of late
cancer in human beings, in which
surgery has nothing to offer and
the outlook is hopeless, the report
"The time has ionic when we
should begin experimentation with
Other investigations of import
ance conducted by the laboratory
have had to do with the prevalence
i f many forms of cancer in fish and
the possibility of infection by hum
an beings. It has been found that
c ncer of the thyroid, in particular,
is of frequent occurrence in fish of
the trout family.
"It is a very remarkable coinci
dence,'' says the report, "that the
area of the United States which in
cludes thy greatest concentration of
human cancer cases is almost iden
tical with the area through which
the vat ions members of the trout
family are distributed."
Statistics are given to show that
cancer continues to increase. The
report says that 111 the United
States it has increased from 9 per
100,000 population in 1850 to 43 in
1900, an average of about 65 in
1 90 1, and an average cf more than
70 in 1906.
How Tuberculosis Spread?.
Just for instance: A young man
who had bceu clerking for years in
the basement of a 1 rge department
store developed a cough! And he
was tired, so tired that his sister
suggested that he take a vacatiou
in mid winter. She was a dress
maker, making good money, and
she thought he needed a little rest.
So he got leave of absence and
changed from the unventilated base
ment of the store to the overheated
and equally unventilated flat. To
be sure, he took an occasional walk,
but most of the time he sat in the
back parlor reading, and when this
occupation palled, he went into the
work-room and chatted with the
women sewing on pretty frocks for
a score of customers. And where
ever he went, he expectorated.
There was a spittoon, a dry spit
toon, in every room!
but he got no better, the
cough-syrups did not cure and fi
nally he went to see a doctor. The
doctor sent a sample of this young
man's sputum to the laboratory
conducted by the board of health
and had it examined. When the
young man called again, he was
told that he had consumption. The
board of health was notified of the
fact by the physician in charge of
the case. The young man was sent
to a sanatorium for incipient cases,
the house was fumigated and the
dressmaker mainstay of the fam
ily though she was heard some
plain truths about shipping out
frocks from this germ-laden home
and employing a dozen workers in
one room, without proper ventila
tion. That one case of tuberculosis
could infect the families of the doz
en sewers and the two dozen custo
mers. It could spread out its death
dealing tentacles and touch at least
one hundred and fifty unsuspecting
persons. From Woman's Home

Pink Hens Lay Rainbow Eggs.
How to change the color of a
oure white hen to pink and how
pink, red or other colored eggs may
be produced was one of the demon
strations successfully carried out
at the State College of Agriculture
at Ithica, N. Y.
Experiments of feeding hens
with rhodameride dye proved suc
cessful. One fine looking hen was
fed with this dye, during the molt
ing season, and her feathers gradu
ally changed from white to delicate
pink. The same coloring was mark
ed in the albumen of ner eggs.
By the use of another dye con
centric rings of red appeared in the
yolk of the eggs, which also were
made entirely red, and the demon
strators said that it would be pos
sible to produce other colors.
The authorities of tbe college
are considering turning out eggs
with the yolk red and the albumen
white, the colors of Cornell Univer
sity, and using them to advertise
the State College of Agriculture.

LIMK-SULPHUR WILL NOT IMPAIR
In reply to a Perry Couuty far
mer, who wrote to Professor II. A.
Surlace, State Zoologist, Hams-
burg, inquiring whether an iron
kettle will be injured, if the lime-
sulphur solutiou is boiled in it,
Professor Surface sent the follow
"ou can boil lime and suiphur
in an iron kettla without damaging
it for other purpsses. Wash it
with hot vinegar after you are
through boiling, using a scrubbing
brush, and then wash it with clear
water and dry it. Before putting
it away permanently, it would be
well to apply a coat of oil or grease
to prevent rusting.
"I am frequently asked if an or
dinary iron kettle can be used for
this porpose without injury to it,
and take this occasion to say that
the lime-sulphur wash will not se
riously affect any metal excepting
copper. Copper kettles should not
be used, as the copper will be dis
solved and the kettles ruined.
Common iron kettles, such as are
used in butchering, or even ordina
ry galvauized iron wash tubs can
be used successfully in boiling lime
sulphur wash. It is not necessary
to boil the entire birrel full of this
mixture at one time. Eight 01 ten
or mo. e gallons of the material can
be prepared in the concentrated
form and then diluted to fifty gal
lons by adding water after boiling."
Mifflin County Dry.
The Mifflin Court on Monday
refused all applicants for liquor
licenses, though the liquor element
proved, through the agent, of the
Adams Express Company, that two
hundred gallons per day was a fair
average tf the shipments into the
town during the period ot no
license, and another witness, testi
fied that his experience shewed
about 50 per cent, of the regular
shipments in the no-hcense period,
Following the regular argument
the Court announced that Associate
Judge Forest Swyers was iu favor
of granting all licenses.

Some Facts About Hypnotism.
"Xo competent exponent of hyp
notisin to-day behoves that a per
son is inevitably obliged to execute
all hypnotic commands given him,"
says II. Ad 'ington Bruce in the
Woman's Home Companion for
March. "And while some still cling
to the idea that hypnotic ctimes
are Possible, tha consensus of scien
tific opinion is tint no person who
would not in his normal state per
petrate the ctime suggested, would
perperate it if hypnotized.
"It is equally certain, though,
that under hypnotic infill Mice peo
ple are liable to accuse the nselves
of crimes they h ive not committed.
This is a real danger, which otig it
to be carefully guarded against in
courts of justice.
"There is reason to believe that
many 'police confessions' extorted
from accused persons by the pro
cesses of the so-called 'third degree'
and afterward found to be untrue
are made in a hyponotic s'.ate. The
persistent questioning of the pris
oner by the police, their pitiless in
sistence that 'be is guilty and
knows he is guilty,' may develop
in him that peculiar hysterical con
dition in which, as has already been
said, he may become spontaneously
hypnotized by an unexpected noise
or the sudden flashing of a light."
