Makes Story of Fall Over Precipice an
Encouraging Aceount to Thoi#
With Inclination to High
A German scientist, Prof. Albert
Helm, who fell over a precipice in th«
Alps but lived to tell the tale, mates
that story a very encouraging account
to those with an inclination to high
jumps and the like.
His fall was only 70 feet, yet that
would b.- more than enough to satisfy
a temi erate person. He has narrated
his sensations in minute detail.
At flirt he seemed to himself to be
flying through the air. His fall really
could have occupied only a few sec-
onds, but his train of thought was
long and full of interesting detail.
"I clearly saw," he says, "the possi-
bility of my fate. I said to myself:
'The rocky wall from which 1 am now
elrg hurled prevents my seeing what
is at its base The snow may be melt-
ed there, or there may be none; if
there is any my life may be saved.
Otherwise death is inevitable.
" 'If I am conscious on reaching the
earth 1 have by me a bottle of aro-
mafics and my alpenstock. 1 will still
grasp it. for it may serve me in good
stead.' i thought, too. of removing
my eyeglasses lest their splintering
might cause injury.
Other and greater thoughts for
those i was to leave behind came
upon me. For myself I felt indiffer-
ent. caring r ally little whether 1
should be much injured or not; but

ers I felt impelled, as it were, to mal.e

Upon several important occasions in the
past the United States had to insist upon the
recognition of the Monroe doctrine as a vital
part of its foreign policy. Monroe. Jefferson
and Adams united iu establishing and uphold-
ing this doctrine, and Jefferson stated the pol-
icy succinctly when he wrote: "Our first fun-
damental maxim should Ik- never to entangle
ourselves in the broils of Europe. Our second.
never to suffer Europe to intermeddle with
cis-Atlantic affairs." In 1845 President Polk
made the first real application of the doctrine.
which resulted in the acquisition of Texas. A
later application was the invasion of Mexico by
the United States which resulted in the with- ^ood tinilx
drawal of the French army of occupation. Pres- men.
ident Cleveland quoted the Monroe doctrine to
.justify his attitude toward Great Britain in
connection with the Venezuelan boundary dis-
pute. The withdrawal of Great Britain was a
direct result of recognition of the Monro" doe-

ADJUSTING LABOR DISPUTES
Railway managers and employes alike will
reeret the request of the Interstate Commerce
Commission to be relieved from further work
tinder the terms of the Erdmann act, providing
for the arbitration of wage disputes between
employers and employes engaged in interestate
commerce. The request was made because
members of the commission feel that their rec-
ognized official duties are onerous enough to
demand all of their time and attention.
It is a long list of achievements in the way
of conciliation and arbitration that must be

Catarrh is a disease of the mucous
membrane. The mucous membrane
is, Qne may say, the interior lining
of the body. Catarrh therefore may
exist in any part of the system.
When the catarrhal poison attacks
the mucous membiAje. inflammation
and congestion are produced and na-
ture fails to throw off the accumu-
lated poisons. The organ whiclt has
been afflicted ceases to perform its
proper function as nature intended it
upon complication, which may lead to
other even more serious afflictions.
