Mr. David Creightonand his daughter,
while on their way to town Wednesday,
met with an accident that came near re
sulting seriously. They were riding to
town on a load of wheat when from some
cause they slipped off, falling in front of
the wheels. At the same time a sack of
wheat fell in front of one of the hind
wheels and this stopped the team. If it
had not been for this the wagon would
have run over them.
According to Joseph Murray, fish
commissioner for Alaska, the birds and
foxes are being exterminated. The pro
cess comes as near being perpetual mo
tion as anything yet mentioned. He
says the hunters poison the foxes for
their skins. Then the birds eat the
poisoned foxes and die. Other foxes eat
the poisoned birds, And die, other birds
eat the other poisoned foxes and they
die and there you have . it the genuine
circulating medium of strychnine.
The power plant proper consists first
of an inlet canal situated about a mile
and a half up the river from the Ameri
can falls. This canal is really a great
reservoir into which the water backs.
The opening, or great gates, are placed
not at the upper, but at the lower, end,
the end nearest the falls. This was
done because the engineers believed
that the current would be too strong if
the water was admitted directly from
the river. It therefore goes in by a
back flow. The canal will always be
full. No drouth, no frost of winter has
ever occurred so severe as to interfere
materially with the flow,of water over
Niagara's brink. Into the canal or cut
gateways of massive masonry, each con
trolled by a heavy gate, and connected
with enormous shafts, or penstocks, of
iron and steel, some of them of a diame
ter as great as seven feet. Through
each shaft may be delivered a continu
ous force of water equivalent to from
two thousand to five thousand horse
power. Those that turn the turban
wheels which keep the massive machin
ery of the paper mill in motion, deliver
three thousand six hundred horse
power. The total capacity of the canal
is one hundred thousand horse-power ;
and it will be possible to so increase the
capacity of this and other plants con
trolled by the parent and allied compa
nies that ultimately there may be cap
tured from Niagara Falls as much as
four hundred and fifty thousand horse

reported by the department of agricul

be for the worse.
