New accompanying Pio Ture la of the new Woolworth build ing to be erected on Broadway in new York. It will occupy the South West Corner of Broadway and Park place the site of mayor Philip hone a famous Broadway residence opposite the it la estimated that this newest addition to new York great skyscrapers will Cost from the Btu walk to the top of the Tower there will be 46 stories the total height being 625 feet exceeding the height of the Singer Tower just five Block below by 13 feet. Only one building in new York will be higher the metropolitan whose Tower rises 700 feet and 3 inches above he Street level. The Only other loftier Structure in Tho world is the Eiffel Tower 985 feet making the Woolworth building the third highest edifice in the world and the second highest in America. The frontage of the building on Broad Way will be 105 feet and on Park place 19t feet. The main building will Rise to a height of 26 stories. The Tower beginning at this Point will con Tain 19 stories. The Tower at the pin Nacle will be 86 feet Square larger in dimensions by about 20 feet than the Singer Tower. Below the Street there will be three stories. Counting these the building will actually have danger in raw food. Pennsylvania s health commissioner or. Dixon a a vigilant official whose warnings Are Many but sensible to discussing the necessity of taking every precaution to guard against typhoid and other communicable diseases or. Dixon said recently there is shutting our eyes to Tho danger of eating unwashed raw fruit. Food infected with typhoid fever by flies caused Many deaths among our soldiers during the late Spanish Amer ican War. The time and Energy Neces sary to Wash raw fruit is a Bagatelle alongside of a Case of typhoid it is Well to be Wise in such a matter before trouble comes and not after. That typhoid fever infection has been spread by the infection of articles of diet eaten raw is a matter of record in this Region As Well As elsewhere and it is better to be too fussy than too careless in such a Field Republican. Brought into prominence modern investigations As to the orig ins of diseases have brought the Little organisms called bacteria into so much prominence that search has been made to ascertain whether they existed during the Early geological periods. Not Long since the fact was announced fat Regn tilt Lead discovered bacteria in Coal. Continuing his re searches he found evidence that Bac Teria were probably Coeval with the first appearance of organic life on the Earth. They attacked vegetable tis sues As Well As the Bones and Teeth of animals but As a Rule they belonged to be Lei distinct from those of today. Valuable information. We heard on the Street the other Day of a Man who claimed he was too poor to take his Home paper but All the same he read a latice in some other paper telling How to prevent a horse from slobbering and sent for the receipt. When the Worth of information came it said teach your horse How to the Woolworth building. 48 stories. The Cost of the site was so the total investment will be it is expected that the Woolworth building will be completed by january 1, 1912. Awful record of murder estimated that we now have an average of 200 a week in this country. Well known statistician cakes the statement that we now have an average of 200 murders a week or every year in this country. In Chicago there Are 118 murders a year in Paris 15 in London four times As Large As Chicago 29 while in three years the number of lives taken in this Way in this country equals the total number lost by the British army in the Boer War. The number of murders in the United states has increased four and a half times in the last 20 years. The Mur Der spots of the world seem to be Italy and Mexico. The number per year in Italy is 96 to the much of this killing tomes from our polyglot population gathered from All the countries of the world jostling and crowding each other the Loose habits which people take on and the natural passions that in a moment of excitement give Rise to the taking of life. To kill and maim seems to be an american ambition. The railroads the country Are killing people a year on the average. The steel Mills in Many places have been great Slaughter houses. The autos too Are piling up their lists of the sports Are adding theirs and other factors Are entering in to swell the total. Malice and passion Are the causes of crime and these ought to be curbed. Only two per cent of the homicides in the country Are brought to punishment and the reasons Are aversion to capital punishment and the miscarriage of Justice. Capital punishment is necessary however As a deterrent where it has been abolished murder is on the increase. A Long up. Pensacola tallest tree in the world so far As has been ascertained is an australian gum tree of the species eucalyptus Regnant which stands in the Cape Otway Range. It is less than 416 feet High. Gum Trees grow very fast. There is one in Florida which shot up 40 feet in four years and another in Guatemala which grew 120 feet in 12 years. This corresponds to a Rise of 10 feet in a year or nearly one foot a month. Invention of salad. Delicate cookery Baa Long been known to flourish Best in those lands where roast beef is hard to get it was starvation that invented the salad for example. Somebody had to eat grass or go hungry so he put Vine Gar and Oil Pepper and Salt on it and to it made dry bread seem like a dinner.
