Representatives ot Meat Firms Try to
Induce State Officials to Continue
Shipments From Districts Infected
With Foot and Mouth Disease
An unsuccessful attempt was made
by live stock shippers yesterday after
noon induce Dr. Marshall, head of
the Live Stock Sanitary Board, to lift
the embargo on the shipment of cattle
from the districts infected with foot
and month disease through Pennsylva
nia. J. R. Brown, representing the cat
tle shippers of Ohieugo, and W. M.
Noves, of New York, representing
Swift & Co., with Dr. Marshall, called
on the Governor and Attorney General
Brown, but the two ofliciols said that
it rested entirely with Dr. Marshall to
determine what was best to be done,
and the State Veterinarian declined to
change the order now existing.
It was represented to Dr. Marshall
that the Jews in *he Eastern States
who depended on their meat supply
through the cattle shipped from the
West could not get sufficient because of
the Pennsylvania embargo, all cattle
from the West being shipped through
Pennsylvania. They ottered to guaran
tee that all cattle shipped til) rough
Pennsylvania should be placed in sealed
water-tight cars in order to prevent all
da-nger of the spread of the disease,
but Dr. Marshall was olwlurate and an
nounced tihat the regulation would re
main in force.

British Tramp Steamer Aground
By Asßoci(tted Press.
Beaufort N. C., March 4.—The Brit
ish tramp steamer Overdale. 2,240
tons, from Savannah to Havre with
cotton, is aground near Cape Lookout
shoals but in no danger. Captain White
and his crew of twenty-three have de
clined to leave the ship.
Supper at Camp Hill
Camp Hill, March 4. —The ladies o>
the Trinity Lutheran church will give
a supper at the fire house to-morrow
from 4.30 to 8 o'clock. Extra dishes
will be served.
If you want to keep your hnir in
good condition, the less soap you use
the better.
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries
the scalp, makes the hair brittle, and
is very harmful. Just plain mulsified
cocoanut oil (which is pure and en
tirely greasoless), is much better
than soap or anything else you can
use for shampooing, as this can't
possibly injure the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with
water and rub it in. One or two tea
spoonfuls will make an abundance of
rich, creamy lather, cleanses the
hair and scalp thoroughly. The
lather rinses out easily, and removes
every particle of dust, dirt, dandruff
and excessive oil. The hair dries
quickly and evenly, and it leaves it
fine ami silky, bright, fluffy and easy
to manage.
You can get mulsified cocoanut oil
at most any drug store. It is very
cheap, and a few ounces is enough
to last everyone in the family for
Harrishurg residents are astonished
at the QUICK results from the simple
mixture of buckthorn bark, glycerine,
etc., known as Adler-i-ka. This remedy
acts on BOTH upper and lower bowel
and is so THOROUGH a bowel cleanser
that it is used successfully in appendi
citis. ONE SPOONFUL of Adler-i-ka
relieves almost ANY CASE of consti
pation, sour or gassy stomach. ONE
MINUTE after you take it, the gasses
rumble and pass out. G. A. Gorgas,
druggist, 16 North Third street and
Pennsylvania Bailroad Station.—Adv.
They Don't Like Whit* Man and Wish
Only to Ba Lat Alone.
Many people In the northern states
are unaware that there dwells in the
fastness of the Florida Everglades oue
of the most interesting and picturesque
bands of American aborigines in the
United States, known as the Seminole
Indians, who are now as separate and
distinct from the white race as when
Columbus first held mass on the shores
of Cuba. These are the remnants of
the one time mighty nation of the
Semlnoles. who defied the United
States government for more than half
n century and persistently refused col
While the numerous wars and forced
emigration have reduced their numbers
to a few hundred, their mode of living,
dispositions and customs are in uiuny
respects the same as when the haughty
De Soto sailed Into Tampa bay iu 1533. ;
The Semlnoles live to themselves,
avoiding contact with the white race
as much as possible and seldom If
ever taking whites Into their confl- ,
dence, and on account of the almost ;
Inaccessible nature of the country in
which they live little Is known of their
intimate home life. Unlike the Indians
of the west, they persistently decline
any assistance from the government
saying in response to offers for their
support, "We only wish to be let
alone."—Cleveland Plain Dealer.
fiimpla Homemade Apparatus by Which
They May Be Produced.
The ordinary person either does not
understand or is afraid of electricity
and could scarcely be persuaded to
manufacture It himself, and yet after
all a little electrical experiment at
home is both amusing and instructive.
All that you have to do is to take a
glass, expose it to the fire so that it
shall be perfectly dry and place it up
side down upon the table.
AfterwaM take a tray, also perfectly
dry, and p ce it upon the glass in
such a w.i.i that It shall preserve its
equilibrium. Finally take a sheet ot
paper slightly smaller than the tray,
heat it and rub It rapidly with a brush,
and it will become quickly electrified.
Then place It upon the tray.
An electrical machine will thus have
been constructed without any expense
V the finger be brought near the tray
a spark will appear. This spark will
be so much the brighter and the series
of sparks will be so much the longer In
proportion as the glass and tray are
If. when the sparks are being drawn
from the tray, the room in which the
experiment is performed be darkened
these sparks will appear extremely
brilliant.—Pearson's Weekly.
"It It Not Surgery, but Delayed Sur
gery, That Fails to Cure.' ;
That cancer is at first a local growth
and not a general disease of the sys
tem is now clearly established. This
fact Is of the utmost importance, since
in holds out a high hope of cure If the
malignant growth is removed before
it has time to spread to other parts of
the body. Cancer beginning in one spot
later appears elsewhere, because small
particles or cells are carried away
from the first site and start other
growths, not because there exists pre
viously some poison In the blood which
causes the disease to break out In
different parts of the body. The great
hope of cure, therefore, lies in remov
ing cancer entirely from the system be
fore It has a chanc* to spread from its
first foothold.
The reason why so mcn.v people
came to believe that career was a
blood disease is doubtless because It
was observed to come again in the
same or other parts of the body after
having been apparently cut out It
was natural to assume that when the
disease kept coming back in this man
ner there must be some cause or taint
In the blood which led to its breaking
out in different places much like cer
tain skin diseases.
The trouble which started this falla
cious reasoning was that in those
earlier days cancer was not so well
understood as it now is. Surgeons
then did the best they knew how, but
without the advantages of modern
methods they were unable successfully
to exterminate the disease. The micro
scope has now shown us the paths bv
which cancer cells start their invasion
of the body If the first and local ap
pearance is neglected. Modern sur
geons are. therefore, repeatedly suc
cessful In removing the disease once
for all. As an eminent American
doctor has well said. "It is not surgery,
but delayed surgery, that falls to cure."
"It's pretty hard to sleep on an emp
ty stomach." said the tramp wearily
to the hustling farmer's wife.
"Why. you poor fellow!" she replied
sympathetically. "Why don't you turn
over and sleep on your back for a lit
tle while? Ye hain't wore it out lyin'
on it. hev ye?"— Judge.
A Timesaver.
"Those envelopes with the glass
fronts ore great time savers, aren't
"Tou bet they are. When I get one
of them I never hnve to bother to open
It I know right away it's a bill."—

Modesty of Bach
From the time wiheu Bach was so!
fortunat* as to receive the appoint-1 >
ment of organist at Arnstadt, with an | '
animal salary of S7O to SBO, his de- j '
sires were apparently fulfilled. lie! i
sought for no higher post, and only i
wheu a new one was offered him did lie j l
accept it thankfully as a gift of I'rov- | j
idence. In every new position it was j ]
his only asipiration to do his duty faith
fully, and, accordingly, he made his j
gifts serve his place, so that as an or- 1
ganist he composed organ pieces; as the i
Weiinar chapelmaster, psalms and sa- !
cred cantatas and chamber music, and ! ]
as the musical director of fche St. Tim- i i
otlhy school, his great polyphonic, diffi- .
cult vocal works. Kings and princes j i
not infrequently commanded him to !
play to them He did their will mod- i
estly and, fully satisfied, returned to
his simple home. He must have known
that he was the greatest organ vir
tuoso in the world, and at that time a
great master of tlhis instrument was
well rewarded. He was highly es
teemed in France, England and Hol
land, bfcti was never known to express
the wish of setting his foot on foreign
soil.—Johann Friedrich Rochiltz.
Ocean Cables
The uliameter of the Atlantic cable
varies according to the depth of the i
water, the character of the bottom on |
which it lies and the probabilities of ■
interference from anchors. It is small- i
est in midocean depths. There is lit- i
tie or no movement at the hottoiri, and
it is important that thf cable should
not have great weight. A heavy ca
ble in deep water would be difficult to ,
bring up for repairs if such were neod- i
ed. In the shallow water a heavier
type of cable is used. The types are :
known as "shore end," "intermedi
ate" and "deep sea." The diameters
of the commercial cables are: Shore
end, two and three-quarter inches; in
termediate, one and three-quarter
inches; deep sea, one inch.
He Was Acquainted
The visitor to the links at Hayseed
on-the-Mud had had the oW'ost cad.lie
in the district allotted to him as his
beast of burden.
"Well,' said the visitor, "as you
have been living in the neighborhood so
many years I suppose you know all the
ins and outs of this placet"
"Oh, yes, sir—at least. 1 am quite
familiar with the inns," replied the
caddy.—London Telegraph.
