Panama Canal Victims. Careful inquiry has been made con cerning the condition of the laborers on certain sections of the Panama Canal, which not only confirms the reports which have been previously published, but discloses the pitiable condition to which the people are reduced. At San Pablo, Tabernilla and Bohio some have died of: starvation, and their graves are now being pointed out to visitors. There are many more who will die from the same cause. lany men have been given ahalf day's , work for: a meal, and those who hiave -been employing them on their farms state that they will not longer continue such an arrangement, as their stock of provisions is almost exhausted.

A Novel Yacht. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 4 July 1914
A Novel Yacht. There is being built in a Brooklyn ship yard a steam yacht which has -an eight-inch brass-bound hole on each side of the keel and a three-quarter inch brass-bound hole where other steam ynchts have a propeller.. When com pleted, this novel yacht will ]iave a double piston pump, exerting a hy draulic pressure of 2,500 pounds to the square inch. This pump will draw water into the vessel through the side pipes and eject it through the stein pipe, so as to drive the yacht- eleven or twelve miles an hour. The niew yacht will be 110 feet long and 22 feet beam. She will have small engines and no wheel. The steering will be regulated' by, the jet of water from the stern pipe. IDr. Jackson, of Brooklyn, the projector of the new craft, formerly operated a little. launch on the. principles described above. He thinks his yacht now build inug will turn lharbor navigation topsy turvy, and has named it "The Revolu-, tion."-New York Timees:.

Shutting His Eyes Caused Him ye Fall. Joseph T. Francis, an elderly, beld headed man, stole a silver watch from a passer by in New York, and, when pursued, threw the watch into a sewer opening.
