Homes of Thousands of Rodents Will
Be Destroyed.
Building northward from Denver tho
Denver, Laramie and Pacific railroad
will run for sixty miles through tho
greatest prairie dog town in tho world,
estimated to contain nearly 500,000,000
of these animals.
Tho invasion of this district means
war, and tho railroad officials are plan
ning to wipe out tlo dogs nlong their
right of way by dropping Into their
holes balls of cotton saturated with
carbon bisulphide. Tho fumes, in
which no animal life can exist, will
so permeate tho boles that tho prairlo
dogs will bo suffocated.
Tho railroad finds it necessary to ex
terminate tho animals to prevent them
from so undermining tlie roadbed as
to make traffic Insecure. The entire
town will not bo attacked, but only
that part through which the lino is to
Iw constructed.
This dog town lies close to tho line
between Colorado nnd Wyoming. It
Is fifty miles wide, a hundred long and
contains 4,480,000 acres. As ranchers
figure that every ncre contains at least
100 prairie dogs, tho estimate of CO0,
000,000 dogs in this town is perhaps
not- too largo, to say nothing of the
owls, rabbits, lizards, horned toads and
rattlesnakes which Infest tho burrows,
Tho dog colony which lives down in
tho big town evidently settled there
hundreds of years ago. In its present
size it has been known to exist for
fifty years. While prairie dogs multi
ply about as rapidly as do rabbits, tho
younger animals remain in tho burrow
with their parents until there is no
longer room for them. Then they are
thrown out and arc forced to enter
another den or dig one for themselves.
While there may have been millions
of now burrows dug in tho big town
since white men first observed It, tho
limits of tho colony are practically tho
same today as when pioneers and gold
minors first .located It.

Want to Try It.

Commlssnry General II. C. Sliarpe has
developed n new bread that is imper

old loaves nnd easier to transport. Fol
lowing is the recipe:
To 100 pounds of sifted flour and fifty-two
pounds of water one and one
half pounds of dried yeast, three
pounds of sugar and oio and one-quarter
pounds of salt.
Tho mixture Is cooked In a slow
oven, nnd the loaves are baked flat.

Largo Deposits of It Have Been Found
In Nevada.
Fashion is rejoicing these days in a
new jewel opallzed wood.
Tho newest gem is found in Ncvndn,
where extensive deposits of it have
been discovered. As Aladdin's garden
glittered with rare stones, so the forest
of old has been converted into orna
ments for this generation. Tho new
jewel consists really of petrified wood,
the fiber of which had been gradually
replaced by particles of tho silicate
commonly known ns opal. It is of
dark red and blue shades, with many
flashes of color through it. In tho sun
light the stone has a fascinating play
of hues. There are specimens which
are of exquisite beauty.
Opalescent wood is used for pend
ants, brooches and also for rings. In
appearance it rivals the preciotts opal
which Is brought from Hungary. Wood
opals hitherto have been found in tho
western United States, but none of the
quality of those which have recently
been discovered. Tho finer specimens
are quite expensive. They are usually
cut' with a convex surfneo in order to
bring out the play of colors.
It Is an old belief that the opal
brings good luck to him who wears it,
and there are various qualities attrib
uted to the stone which may be traced
to tho ancient belief in talismans.
Some of the opalescent wood speci
mens show tho grain of the tree, the
structure of which they follow, as they
were gradually deposited from tho wa
ters which carried in solution the ele
ments from which they were formed.
As usual, the Legislature has ap
propriated for charitable institutions
much more money than the income
of the State warrants, thus leaving
it for the Governor to go laboriously
through the many bills and lop off
where he can. A system has grown
up of handing out money promiscu
ously. One of these days this sort
of thing will be stopped and appro
priations awarded only to institu
tions that are either the property of
the public or so closely allied with
the public as to make them practical
ly public concerns.
Under this classification conies the
Wills Eye Hospital of Philadelphia.
While not under State management,
It caters free of charge to the entire
State. It Is a charity pure and sim
ple. During the past sixteen years
It lias cared for 230,000 patients,
many of whom have been saved from
blindness, and they have come from
every ona of the sixty-seven counties
in the State. This charity is de
serving of much more money than
the Legislature has allowed it, for
its expansion of usefulness is de
pendent upon State aid outside of
tho meagre ?17,000 income which it
has. It has been awarded $35,000
for tho next two years, together with
$50,000 for building operations.
Twice that amount Is needed, for it
must have a surgical pavilion, and
to prepare for this pavilion the old
buildings must be readjusted
largely rebuilt and moro than the
$50,000 will bo required for rebuild
ing and readjusting alone.
It is to be hoped that Governor
Tener, when he comes to consider
the modest appropriation alloted to
what Is practically a State institu
tion, will give it his approval, and
we are sure that ho will when he
learns that private means will erect
the surgical pavilion if State funds
can be relied upon to readjust the
old buildings and conform them to
modern needs.
