The largest bank io the United
States did two tbiuRS tbe otber day
tbat attiacted inoob attention. For
months it bad held to a minimum rate
of tbiee per cent for call loans on
stock exohauge collateral ; bat it sns
pended tbat iale and, as a result, call
loans dropped below two per cent.
Also, fcr a good while, in order to
streogtbeu cash reserves, it bad been
cot of tbe market for commercial pa
per tbat is. bad ceased baying mer
chants' and manufaotuters' notes; bat,
at tbe same time tbe call rate was
lowered, the bank boogbt several
million dollars of commercial paper
on a fix per cent basis. At least
one otber very large bank is said to
have followed its example. So there
yon bave tbe typical situation nnder
conditions like tbe present money
plentiful snd oboap for Stook Ex
change speonlatiou; mouey snaroe and
dear for legitimate business. For this
the banks ore not in tho least to blame.
Tbe condition is farced upon them by
oar bad hanking system. In a time
of. some stress the big city banks
holding tbe reserves of tbe cunntry
banks mast ksnp etroug in oasb or in
paper immediately convertible into
cash. Call loans on tbe stook ex
ohauge oan be immediately converted
intooasb; bat tbe notes of merchants
and ruannfaotartira, running from three
to six mi ntbs, cannot be rualizad upon
until tbey mature. Ilenoe ioevit-abJy-.tbe
city banks are obary of ty
ing op their funds in commercial pa
por, bat are free to lend on tbe stock
exchange. There is no remedy for
tbis except in a central organization
that will always ledmconnt coramer
cial paper, as the central banks of
Europe do. Whether tbat organiza
tion is on lied a neutral Lmuk or a
regional reHervo association is immaterial.
Among t lio first things txkon np by
Superintendent J. A. Chnrohill was
tbo work done in the industrial depart
ment. In older to get a line on what
is being done in tbe different coun
ties, Mr. Uburobill oallid a meeting
of the connty superintendents who
were iu session last week at the State
House in tbe capacity of the State
Hoard of Examiners. Eaob superin
tendent reported an increasing inter
est in tbe ruoveuiaufc aud in most oas
es the local exritita bid fair to le
larger and tetter than last year.
Tbe State Fair board was anxious to
uHoertaiu os nearly as possible bow

county exhibits aud how much space
would be required for tho javeuiln de

with the individual exhibit, will make
the largest and best display of school

GOT DRUNK ON A BEEFSTEAK
And Also on Over-strong Tea and Even
on Cold Water.
According to n bouse surgeon iu a
London hospital, it is not necessary to
take strong drink at all in order to be
druuk. Cnscs hare been known in
which patients have got drunk on a
liccfsioiil; after having been for many
weeks on a very light diet. Tbe iu
toxlctitioit in these cases showed it
self in n slight dizziness nud diwni
ness mid indistinctness of speech.
Similar cases bave been known in
which the only Intoxicant has been
strong tea. In fact, there are instances
in medical books of exceptionnf people
in whom the constant use of over
strong, overdraw!' tea has brought
about distinct symptoms of delirium
Perhaps the most curious sort of in
toxication on record is that in which
the only intoxicant is cold water drip
ping from a water tap into the ear.
In Germany a few years ogo quite a
number of morbid people bad n crav
ing for this curious way of inducing
drunkenness, but it seems to have been
The drip of the water is said to
cause n painful boiling sensation nt
first and then to cause a pleosaut drow
siness, ending In deep sleep. When
the victim is roused he is dull and stu
pid in manner, like a heavy drinker.
This craze makes its victim n nervous
wreck In a very Bhort time. Pearson's
' RIDING THE SURF.
Riotous Sport In the Breakers That
- Lash the Coast of Hawaii,
"One of tbo novel pleasures In which
most travelers Indulge while In Hono
lulu is surf riding nt Wulkikl. near
Diamond bead," writes John Bur
roughs In the Century. "The sea, with
n floor of lava aud coral, is hero shal
low for a long distance out. mid tho
surf comes in nt Intervals like a line
of steeds cantering over a plain. We
went out In our bathing suits in n
long, heavy dugout, with n native
oai'siiiau n each end.
"When several hundred yards from
shore we saw on looking sen ward tho
long, shining billows coming, where
upon our oarsmen beaded the ennoe
toward shore and plied their paddles
with, the utmost vigor, uttering simul
taneously a curious, excited cry. In a
moment the breaker caught us aud, lu
some way holding us on its crest, shot
us toward the shore like nu arrow.
"Tho sensation is novel and thrilling.
Tho foam Hies; the wuters leap nbout
you. You are coasting ou the sea, and
you Bhout with delight and pray for
tbe sensation to continue. Hut it is
quickly over. The hurrying breaker
slips from under you and leaves you
in the trough, while It goes foaming
on the shore. Then you turn about
and row out from shore again and
wait for another chance to be shot to
ward the land on the foaming crest of
a great Paclllc wave."

"The LIFE of a wagon is what counts
'-that's why I buy a Studebaker"
"That's reasonable, isn't it?"
"A wagon that doesn't last is expensive no matter
what price you pay for it."
"Suppose you buy three wagon9, one after the
other, and the three of them don't last as long as one
Studebaker which is the best bargain?"
" I didn't find this out myself. I heard my grandfather say it
good many years ago. He said he had proved that it paid to buy
a Studebaker. 1 followed his advice to my own satisfaction."
"A wagon can't have life in it unless it has the material and
work and finish in it. The Studebaker people have been making
, vehicles for sixty years. They ought to know how to make wagons
, right and they do. They have the reputation because they've
produced the goods. They don't put the name Studebaker on
until the wagon's right, and when you see the name Studebaker
on a vehicle of any kind it is your insurance of quality."
"That's why I buy a Studebaker. I trust a Studebaker wagon
because I trust the people that make them. It's good business.
"A Studebaker promise is always made good.'
