What Denatured Alcohol Means to the People Philadelphia Grocery World: The denatured alcohol law. which will go In to effect on January I, 1907. will In all probability mean much to every retail grocer at least to every retail grocer who sells kerosene oil. For the law referred to Is intended to. and doubtless will, greatly foster the sale of denatured alcohol, which takes the place of kero sene and gasoline to a very large de gree. As a matter of fact, this new federal law creates a vast new bust ness, which it Is reasonable to expect will be largely in the hands of grocers, since they are distributors of the prod ucts which denatured alcohol Is de stined to supplant. As is freely ad mitted by the government, the law was passed to administer a blow to the Standard Oil Co. Without waiting for the law . to go Into effect an Immense Interest has sprung up throughout the country dur ing the past week and scores of new Industries have been projected. Con gressmen who took part In the le...

EVERYTHING READY To Shut Off Mexican Intake and Pot Water Under Control Fresh from the scene of the great battle which the Southern Pacific is waging against the mighty Colorado river, Col. Epes Randolph arrived in Los Angeles yesterday more confident than ever that eventually the fight will be won. The end will not come today or tomorrow, but just at the time when the great railroad corporaiion was al most ready to abandon the fight, con ditions changed so that the situation is considered more promising than it has been for months. Some twelve miles below Yuma on the Colorado river an army of more than 1000 men is camped in a long skirmish line ready to spring to action at the word of command in a last des perate struggle to overcome the greedy river and to force It once more back to Its abandoned channel. * And although everything is in readi ness down to the finest detail, and al though the Salton Sea Is yet slowly but steadily rising, menacing more and more the main line tracks ...

BANKS IN A FIRE CITY j THE PRESSING NEED OF MONEY IN A STRICKEN COMMUNITY. Experience of a Chicago Financial House In 1871— Greed, of Depositors and How It Showed Itself— An Un expected Proposition. Whenever a great fire devastates a large city the first effort of those con cerned with the work of restoration is to get the banks open so that the press ing needs of a homeless population may be cared for. At such times busi ness is done on a strictly cash basis, and everything sells at a premium. The consequence is an extraordinary •demand for hand to hand money, since the merchant can use the poor man's dollar to better advantage than the rich man's credit in buying supplies to replenish his flame emptied warehouse. The struggle that ensues to obtain all the cash in sight Is full of human interest. . It has its picturesque fea tures. On Monday, Oct 10, 1871, when all Chicago trudged downtown to see what was left of the city, great crowds besieged the banks. Some men were -crying, oth...

A BALLAD OF BALLOONACY. We have had our cycle mania And our grolfers clad in plaid; Tbe baseball crank's still with us And the man who's auto mad. But now there comes a new one. Who turns the strangest trick. The man who scorns to ride or walk— The bold balloonatic. He laughs at horse and buggy And will take no auto ride; He talks like Santos-Dumont, And a gas bag is his pride. He hits the blue empyrean Till he makes the lark look sick; He sets us all a-rubbering— This gay balloonatic. He chats of clouds and currents - And machines that can be steered And of how he'd had the record If the blamed wind hadn't veered, He throws down sand upon us. And he laughs whene'er we kick. Per the upper hand he carries. This proud ballonatic' But Eome day, ah, yes, some day. Like the man who loops the loop. He will make a miscalculation, And there'll be a downward swoop. And we'll have to hunt with well drills When he hits earth like a brick, And the clouds no more he'll Jostle — Our late balloona...

Favors Government Ownership [Communicated] Los Angeles, Cal., July 30, 1906. Mr. F. G. Havens. Editor Press, El Centro. Calif.. Dear Sir: I was very much pleas ed with your articles on Our • Water Rights and think your version of them correct. But why so silent on the question of government ownership of our water system? I think it is high time for the people of the Valley to arouse themselves What the good people of San Diego are doing this week we should have done long 'ere this. The people of the Valley have suffered enough at the hands of the California Development company. Through bad' engineering and gross negligence we have been made to suf fer to the limit of endurance. We have seen our crops wither and die for want of water and later we have seen them swept away by floods — yea not only our crops but our lands and yet the C. D. company demands payments for water stock and now threatens us with the law If we do not pay up. Pay for what? The right to water they did not furnis...

BELLS IN CHURCHES FIRST USED BY PAULINUS, BISHOP OF NOLA, ABOUT 400. .The Earty British Christiana U«ed | Wooden Rattles to Call the People \ Together For 'Worship — Bella and Thnndw and Ligrhtnins. Church bells are of ancient origin. f The ancients had bells for both sacred and profane purposes. Strabo sayg that market time was announced by their sound and Pliny that the tomb iOf an ancient king of Tuscany was hung round with bells. The hour of bathing was made known in ancient ißornei ßorne by the sound of a bell. The night watchman carried one, and It served to call up the servants In great houses. Sheep had them tied about their necks to frighten away wolves, or, rather, by way of amulet. Paulinus, bishop of Nola,' is general ly considered the first person who in troduced bells into ecclesiastical serv 'Jce about the year 400. Historians say that in 610 the bishop of Orleans, being at Seno, then in a state of siege, fright ened away the besieging army by ring- Ing St. Stephen's ...

Tbe Cattino Back of the Alamo We noted In our last issue that the. water In the Alamo river had formed an overpour and had lowered the bot tom of its channel till it had undermin ed some of the piling in the bridge of the Holton Inter Urban railway at Holtville. Since then this overpour has gradually worked back up the riv er till on last Sunday it passed the outlet from the power plant of the Holton Power company. This cut the river channel at that point nearly 15 feet and caused a sharp cutting out of the canal from the tall race of the pow er plant to the river. The twelve foot fall given to the water by this subsi dence of the river channel and the consequent cutting in the tail race can al made It necessary to shut down the power plant for three or four days to put a drop on the end of the tail race so the water may fall into the river without cutting out the banks. The drop, as it is called. Is a wooden flume on a sharp incline. There is a large box at the bottom into which th...
