Though the small boy has been de

and torpedoes and otner Fourth of July
noise-making apparatus, an equally ex
citing time awaits him at the Country
Club en his country's birthday, for E. F.
Kohler. of Pasadena, has completed ar
rangements for some real chariot
racing, not of the circus type, hut with
horses trained for that purpose only,
and not hitched to moving vans after
the race is run. '
These chariot races have become an
annual feature of the Pasadena Carni
val of Roses, held January X. The re
vival of the Roman sport came about
through the efforts of Charles D. Dag
get in 1904. then president of the Pssa
dena Carnival. He had about reached
the end of hts resources for exciting
affairs and in despair hit upon the plan
of staging real old-fashioned races that
used to make the Romans howL He
had Just read "Ben Hur," and drew his
Idea from the chariot race depicted
Pasadena owns a park where these
races are staged and other events
given. The parades and other expenses
of the next Tournament 01 noses are
paid for with the proceeds. Each year
the biggest paying event is this chariot
Although they have been staged an
nually now for seven yesrs they sun
The Roman chariot idea is carried out
In every detail. There are four horses
attached to each of the spring-less rum
bllng carts. The time for the events Is
fast, the mile always being negotiated
In less than two minutes. The best
mark for the event is six seconds less,
but because of the fast track at the
Country Club this mark Is expected
At Passdena the crowds grew frantic
over the race, for there is real danger,
which makes excitement in the course
about the oval. The horses also get
excited and often run away.
Besides the chariot races, the world's
champion cowboys, Jason and A. J.
Stanley, will give an exhibition of
fancy riding, broncho busting, roping,
relay and pony express racing. Jason
Stanley is the holder of the diamond
medal, presented at the Pendleton
Roundup last year for the best showing.
His brother won the golden belt at the
recent California Rodeo, having the
highest number of points in cowboy
sports. Both are ready to defend their
titles- against all comers.
den Rural District, In his annual re
port, states that he has given much
attention to watercress beds, "as the
typhoid bacillus almost invariably
gains access to the human body by the
digestive track among other ways by
the eating of watercress. The water
supply to these beds." he says, "has
from time to time been bacterlolog
lcally examined, with a view to ascer
taining the presence or otherwise of
abnormal Quantities of the bacillus coll.
"It ' is possible . that some cases of
typhoid fever have originated among
the workers in the water-cress beds,
and It Is as well to point out that pos
sible infection may not be actually de
rived from the water supplying these
beds, which may or may not be sewage
polluted, but where the beds are in the
vicinity of roads and footpaths it is
possible that material may be washed
therefrom into the beds themselves or
Into the water supplying the beds. -A
more important point is the pos
slble contamination of the beds ow
ing to the habits of the workers on
them, or of the persons generally of
the hawker class who hang about
the beds while the water-cress is be
ing gathered for them to ' take away
to bunch and sell in the poorer- streets
of the locality of London. If one of
these gatherers or hawkers Is suffering
from a mild or ambulatory attack of
typhoid fever, it is possible for him to
contaminate the water supplying these
beds through what may be deposited in
"It should be clearly understood that
It is extremely advisable that any per
sons buying water-cress should not
only have some idea as to where It
was grown and through whose hands
It may have passed, but should assure
themselves before eating it that it has
been thoroughly washed in,, running

Report Shows $4,108,359.76
, In Portland's Treasury.
AMOUNT IS BIGGEST EVER
Semi-Annual Statement Issued by
Treasurer Adams, Who Declares
Financial Condition Is
Best or Record.
The semi-annual report of City Treas
urer Adams for the first six months in
1912, ending with the close of business
yesterday, shows a balance on hand in
the city treasury of $4,108,959.76.
This balance is the largest ever
shown at the end of a 'fiscal period.
The financial status of the city, de
clares Treasurer Adams, Is better than
at any time in its history.
Receipts Are Liarger.
During the last period the receipts
exceeded the receipts of the correspond
ing period last year by about 1800,000,
while the expenditures were about 11,
000,000 in excess of the expenditures for
that time. With the exception of about
9100,000 of taxes to be turned into the
treasury later in the year, the balance
on hand represents the amount with
which the cltr will have to conduct
its business for the next half year.
City Treasurer Adams estimates that
the needs of the city during the coming
half will be taken care of by the bal
ance now on band, with a slight bal
ance left over with which to begin the
Bridjce Fond Large, ,
There are several big items of ex

On hand $368,267.19 frOm the sale of
bonds, and for the latter $156,086.90,

possible. Ton are to sandpaper the
skin until the outer cuticle Is rubbed

freshly slaked lime and powdered phoa
phorus. This poultice, if left on for
48 hours, causes a sore which quickly
heals, leaving no scar or trace of the
tattooing, . -
