unions were responsible for tho wreck
Theso accusations were Indignantly
denied by organized labor. Tho mys
tery was still unsolved when Detec
tive William J. Burns, who worked
up the San Francisco graft matters,
was put upon the case. The result of
his labors was made known early last
April, when John J. McNamara, secretary-treasurer
of tho International
Association of Bridge and Structural
Iron Workers; his brother, James. B..

No Answer to This.
Thomas A. Edison was explaining to

Branly, the new French academician,
In tho discovery of wireless telegraphy.
Tho poor reporter, a little bewilder

made Mr. Edison smile.

WATER FOR THE ARMY.
New Sclentifio Mothod to Kill Off
Germs In Philippines.
Drinking water for tho nrmy will
be sterilized by electricity as a result
of experiments made by the tropical
board of the medical corps. Like
many other valuable discoveries of ar
my medical oflleors, this latest system
of treating drinking water may be
adopted in civil life. Drlnkiug water,
it seems, can bo purllled more cheaply
by electricity than by tho universal
method of boiling.
At tho same tluip the "live" taste or
drinking water 'will be retained. All
tho microbes ana death dealing nnl
malculae, according to the report of
tho tropical board, can bo dispatched
by a single flash of tho rays from an
electric bulb. Theso rays are known
technically ns "ultra violet" rays.
The board has been experimenting
i In tho Philippines with ultra violet
rays for more than a year. In tho is-
lands more soldiers have been killed
by impure drinking water than by
Filipino bullets. It has been found al
most Impossible to induce tho soldiers
. to boll their drinking wntcr, and they
too otten nave preferred to take
chnnces of Impurities of the surface
water In the islands rather than drink
the flat, boiled liquid.
Tho work of producing ultra violet
rays will bo a very simple one nt the
posts, most of which have electrical
plants. For troops in the field it Is
proposed to furnish a small gasoline
engine to run n miniature electric
plant. It is not the heat from the
electric bulb that kills the germs, but
tho ultra violet rays.
WANT SAME FAVOR AS CANADA
Norway and Sweden Ask Us to Admit
Pulp and Paper Free.
Norway and Sweden, through their
diplomatic representatives, havo re
quested the United States to grant to
them under the favored nations clause
of their treaties tho same privileges
given to Cnnada by section 2 of the
reciprocity agreement, by which wood
pulp and print paper are admitted free
of duty into tho United States. Sever
al other countries, including Germany,
It is believed, havo asked tho same
privilege from the United States.
Those requests place formally beforo
the state department the question of
whether wood pulp and print paper
can be admitted free from other coun
tries than Canada under tho favored
nation clauses In the existing treaties
between the United States and those
countries. Officers of the state depart
ment are in consultation on tho subject
with officers of the customs service of
tho treasury department, and a final
decision will not bo made until these
conferences have been concluded.
Under section 2 of tho Canadian
reciprocity agreement print paper and
wood pulp were given free entry to the
United States. This section of the bill
became effective on July 1 last, inde
pendent of tho passage of tho law by
congress, and Its operation was not
dependant upon ratification of tho reci
procity agreement by Cannda.
BEES' GET-RICH-QUICK OFFER
They'll Make 150 Per Cent on Your
Money In the West.
Profits of about 150 per cent a year
can be made in the bee industry on
some of the government's reclamation
projects of tho west, according to offi
cials of the reclamation service.
"Tho average price of bees In the
west," said C. J. Blanchard, statisti
cian of the service, "is probably about
$5 a hive. The manager of a large
apiary on one of the irrigated tracts
gives the average production of his
hives at seventy-six pounds of sur
plus honey per annum. At 10 cents a
pound tho returns would be $7.C0. In
addition to that, the increase averages
100 per cent a year, doubling the orig
inal investment and making a total of
1G0 per cent profit each year on the
"Beports indicate that tho quality of
tho honey raised on some of our gov
ernment projects is excellent," con
tinued Mr. Blanchard. "Many bee
farmers havo located In fruit sections,
and the combination Is found to be
mutually advantageous. Tho trees
furnish an abundance of honey during
tho blossoming period, and orchard
men state that the economic Impor
tance of tho bee from tho standpoint
of its value in tho pollenlzation of fruit
cannot bo overestimated."

SOME NOVEL EFFECTS.

PUMPKIN CEHTKKPIECD OF 0RAF3 PAPER
For a thing of apparently so stolid
a nnture the pumpkin lends itself to
an astonishing number of decorative
effects. Inventive hostesses nro con

Thanksgiving festivities. One young
married woman used a middle sized

tiny holes in tho pumpkin nnd In each
holo stuck a long stemmed yellow
chrysanthemum, pushing It In so that
the flower rested on tho pumpkin rind.
Tho centerpiece looked like an im
mense fluffy chrysanthemum and was
much admired. If fewer flowers are
to be used a small pumpkin should bo
chosen. Very novel nnd effective is tho
pumpkin centerpiece seen In tho illus
tration. Crape paper and artificial au

leaves and small pumpkins. A huge
specimen of tho golden hued vegetable
Is fastened to tho top of the polo and
acts as a shade over the center light.

She secured a small white kernel
and, handing it to him, said, "This will
take the odor of onions from your
breath." Tho young man ate it re
marking: "Gosh, that burns! What is it?"
"That's garlic," replied his sister.
