the owners of property is not at our command but the number far ex ceededall previous years This in a large part come through the decrees of the council though several citizens responded to the promptings of their and and tokeepingods During the year there were 756 loads of gravel and 1030 perch of crush ed stone put on the streets A large part of this was spread on the weak or rough places but some new street was made and a gravel walk bordering the City Cemetery built Several addition al lights were secured and at places badly needed The figures as we get them show that 107212 standsto

lfyx1 jiIv I f s 1 f AFOX CHASE Long And Loud Lasting forMan Y Hours So far as we have heard the greatest fox race ever had in this part of the country was made a few weeks ago Mr A W Tarter the Jailer who has one of the best pack of hounds in this vicinity also has a good farm about ten miles west of Columbia and his interests on it necessitate a visit there occasionally One morning he took his bunch of fox chasers with him After the day was spent he fed the dogs but failed to put them up believing that they would be content to haye a good rest but early next morning he missed therPso he mounted and rode to a high point where he heard them some miles west of his place He pushed on to the chase arriving about sunup just as the dogs had cought and killed a red fox He blew his horn and surpriseddwith his and so far from their home and hunting ground being fully sixteen miles distant On the night before Gov Hindman t his dogs np at eight oclock and by means unknown they made the race as above stated It is believed that the Governors dogs went out a mile or so from Columbia on their own accord and started the fox that had wondered from that section and when in hearing Mr Tarters joined in chase was in progress in that part o the country all the latter part of th night making a circuit of several miles five or six times If Governors dogs started the fox near Columbia the best estimate would make the distance covered by his dogs from forty to fifty miles if started there by Mr and brought to the hearing of th Governors the distance would be ten to fifteen miles more for Mr Tarters It was a chase one of distance and to qeathbut every dog stayed till the jo was complete Death of Mr Hugh Mitchell Last Monday afternoon between twelve and one oclock Mr iiis8dye was o r

NArIONAli MJUww w t ATIONALMUUSGUN LTHOUGH the Roosevelt hunt In Africa is entirely a private af L fair it takes on somewhat of an official character now that It is known that the Smithsonian institution is to benefit from the enterprise The Smithsonian institution is under the direction of the United States gov ernment It was founded under a bequest of an Englishman lames Smith son who died in Italy in 1829 It is administered by a board at the head of which is the president of the Unit ed States although the practical head of the institution is the secretary who has always been ti man distinguished for scientific acqnironlerits The first secretary was Joseph Henry noted for his epoch making discoveries The present secretary is Charles nTalcott former head of the geological survey To most visitors to Washington that part of the Smithsonian institu tion known as the National museum prpves of great interest and its millions of specimens are viewed by thou sands of persons every year One of the important departments of the in stit tion is a bureau of ethnology and another is the library The work of the institution as a whole embraces a broad field of scientific and historical effort- v Professor Walcott who is a native of New York state fiftyeight years of age and a graduate of Hamilton col lege has made sin international repu tation by his achievements in

demand and hi Is the author of numerous works iii his chosen field of research Some time ago an unnamed donor made a contribution to the Smithso nian institution for the purpose of f b taining natural history specimens from Africa Last summer Professor Walcott learned that the president Would be agreeable to having several representatives of the institution ac company him on his hunt so it was decided to join forces Three representatives of the Smithsonian were delegated to accompany the presidem and his son Kermit each having some special qualifications for his Individual part in the enterprise Although the Smithsonian institution is to get the benefit of the additions to scientific lore accruing from thc Roosevelt hunt no part of the cost of the hunting trip is to come out of the funds appropriated each year by the government The institution has a fund of 800000 entirely separate from the allotments by congress and from this source in part the money forth hunters is to come The president and Ills son will pay their own ex penses and the institution will outfit the expedition and defray the expenses of the three scientists and the guide No estimate has been made 9what the tQtatcost will be It is stated that while the institution frequently pays large sums of money for specimens it does not expect to purchase the Roose Velt collection it expects to get the zoological botanical and other speck costofQutfitdngtraveling exp Isesof the naturalists and guide ThA big game which the L rz i IJ plesi tnt will kill will be glen with out charge The youngest member of the Smith sonian representation on the trip is Edmund Heller a graduate of Stan ford university class of 1901 a thor oughly trained naturalist whose spe qial work will be the preparation and preservation

temperament and intensely energetic In August Sep tember and October 1898 he made the highest record for a traveling collector having sent to the United States Na tional museum 900 well prepared

tJa iv X Gbrgona CZ Editor News The American people have setup a little country of their own here on the Isthmus They hold the Zone under a perpetual lease and have a government that runs things right The United States profited by the experience of France and did not start in without a thorough understand ing with Panama in fact it is the common belief here that the White House looks after and comes pretty near controlling the government of Panama All of the Canal Zone laws are made by the President of the United States Congress has nothing to do with them Sometime ago a man was condemned to death without being tried by ajury Congress heard about it and in no time President Roosevelt is sued an order establishing the right of trial by jury There is no other place in South America where a man is tried by a jury The whole of Panama has improved very much since the U S government stepped in Every town now has a good water and sanitary system One reser voir that supplies Panama City and has a capacity of 500000 000 gallons The city consumes about 100000 gallons a day All water here has an unpleasant odor about it but as it is caused by harmless weeds we do not think much about it however we do not drink it until it has been boiled for 10 minutes or so The mail service is good When a steam ship arrives the mail is loaded at once on a train and sent to its destination The Panama government has nothing to do with our mail but the U S government pays them 40 per cent of all the revenue on all stamps sold on the Zone that helps them to the extent of 25 000 a year The Pariamaians will do anything to get a dollar out of our government they do not like us and we have little use for them W e have a good telephone and fire system throughout the Zone and they are working on public highways Some day it will be possible to ride inan automobile from Colon to La Bocaabout 30 miles Bryans idea of government ownership has been carried out here When the U S bought out the French she paid 40000 000 for the whole works includ ing the Panama R R so she found herself the sole owner of the only railroad in Panama under the present laws She could not operate this road on a commercial basis so they had to figure out a way to get around these laws To do this the road is operated just like any other railroad except the Presi dent and other officials do not own any stock and that the Isthmian Canal Commissioner is allowed to run its trains on the Panama railroad line T h e United States holds all the stock and of course receives all the profit which amounts to a great deal While the railroad is only 50 miles long it does more busi railloadabout two years we will have a new Panama railroad rrhold one now in use lies almost entirely in the Canal bej ovthe Canal Commissioners are buildv ihgithe Panlsima iailro d w hich is if5t y jIt t up enginesand nice coaches The road is very crooked and there are a great many towns so the trains do not make very good time but they make as good time as the L N does between Lebanon and Louisville This same Pana ma railroad or Uncle Sam owns and operates a steam ship line between Colen and New York The line operates six steam ships one of which came near being lost about six weeks ago in a heavy storm Three of her crew were killed Another onetThe Finance was ramed by a White Star Liner while making her way out of New York and sank in ten minutes after being struck Four pas sengers were drowned Right now things down here are not looking very bright In the last week about 1000 men have been layed off The ships to the States are crowdedwith men going home without posi rthingthe States as it is understood here that there are a great many idle men there The climate here is fine and the sun shines hot but we have rain almost every day andit keeps thfngs pretty well cooled off If we had the same amuse ments here as in the States I believe it would be as agreeable to live here as there Health is something one hardly ever

Though origi nating in the Pacific ocean and sat urated with humidity in traveling the Intermediate distance they are inter cepted by the lofty peaks of four ranges of mountains which absorb all of their moisture so that by the time they reach the valley all humidity has disappeared The blasts are as if heated in a fiery furnace and no liv ing thing can survive the intense heat Even birds indigenous to the region die It is in the months of greatest heat that the sandstorms of Death valley are most deadly They rage with in tense fury obliterating the landscape and dimming the light of the sun withering the scanty vegetation and covering the trails deep in powdered dust At all times the aspect of the valley Is superlatively desolate No spot on earth surpasses it in ariity or
