Airplanes Are "Old Stuff' Here, So Liberty Loan Commit
tee Plans to Bring Airships I'seel to Detect Submarines
Airplanes are "old stuff" in Har
ris- urg.
Out on the Hill, when the Middle
town planes were making their daily
flights over the city, the youngsters
rarely looked up from their play.
They were used to seeing airplanes.
The week of April 28 will bring
an airship to Harrisburg, however,
which will get all the attention the
old hot-air balloons used to get twen
ty-five years ago—and all the at
tention the first airplane got seven
or eight years ago.
Ensign Clarence William Tyndall,
of the United States naval air service

Development in Colombia
May Increase World's j
Now York, April 4. —The new
platinum fields being: opened up in Co- !
lombia. South America, are not only i
expected to increase the world's sup- .
ply of. platinum above the pre-w ir
normal, but give Colombia new rail
way lines and build up the general
commerce of the republic.
The principal work is being don- -1 in
the Choeo district which is untouched
bv r. tailway but is en the San . i.anl
river within reach of steamboats fiom |
towns c-n the sea coast. There are two ;
i large companies in the field, fine is :
I the Di itisli Platinum arid Gold Corpor- I
j ntion of London ; the other, the Anglo- !
i Colombian Company, now merged with
, the South American Gold and Plat
inum Company of New Vork. backed
by the Lewissohn interests.
The British company owns thirty '
square miles of territory and has op- I
tions on forty miles of river frontage. !
It also owns one-half interest in the '
Opogodo property, the other half of I
which is owned by the Paris Transvaal !
Gold Mines Company.
The mining is carried on by dredg- j
ing and hydraulic work. The ore j
averages 73 per cent platinum and '
23 per cent gold. Kngineers of the j
British company calculate their prop- j
crlies will net them eventually $B.- I
300.000. basing costs on 12 cents a |
cubic yard for dredging and 6 cents :
for hydraulicing.
Platinum now commands a steady '
market at $lO3 an ounce. Despite the!
fact that the war is ended and there !
is no further large need for the metal j
for high explosives, there is no pros- |
pect of any falling off in the demand I
or the price. New uses for platinum j
have been discovered. Its popularity
as fashionable jewelry will continue |
and it is now used as a catalyzer in |
< tlte new industry, of producing ammonia j
• from the air.
I Owing to tiie war. its use in mag- '
netos for airplanes, hydroplanes, motor I
cars and motor boats was greatly in- j
j creased and this use will remain in '
i peace times. The world's production of •'
platinum was 300,000 ounces before the
| war. Of this 00 per rent came from '
the l'ral mountain mines in Russia.!
I Ths Russian fields, it is estimated, will j
he exhausted. in thirty or forty years.;
They yielded 183.281 ounces In 1312 !
| 173,612 in 1313: 156.773 in 1315; 107,-
| 774 in 1915 and 78,674 in 1916.
| The Choeo district in Colombia has i
I been worked as never before since the'
' war's demand for platinum became tir- <
gent. Its output in 1911 was 12,000
ounces: 15.000 in 1912; 15.000 in 1913 • !
17.500 in 1914; 18.000 in 1915; 23.000 1
j in 1916, and 50.000 in 1917.
! With the exploitation of the rich '
Colyombian fields, the need for rail-'
j reads in t oiomhia is becoming press- '
j ing. Agents of American and Brit- j
ish contractors are now in Colombia
I looking over the field with the idea
,of building transportation lines. Co- 1
iontbia is wonderfully rich in agrictll
| tural and mineral resources and the i
coming of the railroads is expected to
i a ,, ut :l wonderful development )
ol its industries and commerce.

Daily Health Talks
V Word About the Kidneys
People are easily frightened when;
they think something is the matter I
with their lungs or heart, and well |
they may he; but few people un-!
derstand the dangers of diseased j
kidneys. These organs have a duty
of vital importance to perform, and '
if they are diseased, there is no tell-'
Ing how or where the symptoms may
appear. The kidneys are filters, end
when they are healthy they -emove
the poisons from the blood and
purify it. When the kidneys are
diseased, the poisons are spread
everywhere, and one of these poi
sons is uric- acid. The uric acid is!
carried all through the sys'tem and
deposited in various places, in the
form of urate salts—in the feet,
ankles, wrists and back —and often
forming bags under the eyes.
Sometimes the resulting trouble
is called rheumatism, lumbago, sci
atica and backache. Finally, come
stone in the bladder, diabetes and
Bright's disease.
Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., in
recent years, discovered that a cer
tain combination of remedies would
dissolve uric acid (urate salts) in
the system. He found this combi
nation to be harmless, so that he
made it up in tablets, of double
strength, and called them Anuric
Tablets. They dissolve uric acid in
the human system as hot coffee dis
solves sugar. If you have uric acid
troubles, don't delay in taking Anuric
Tablets, which can be secured in the
drug stores. You can write Dr.
Pierce, too, and he will tell you what
to eat and how to live so that more
urle acid will not form in your sys
tem. l>r. Pierce will not charge for
ihis advice.
