Washington Jan. 12. The boll wee-
vil has caused a loss in the production
of cotton iu the United States in ex-
cess of Oii(n;() bales which at a
vlue of only $50 a bale represents a
total loss or $:uOtRQOo;.. Tliis is only
the lo;i in areas actually planted. The

due to the fact that farmers refrained

the weevil would not allow the plant
to mature can never be estimated

WORLD'S LARGEST IRON MINE !
Enormous Supply of Rich 0r It Lc- j
Cuted at Kiruna Lap- i
The richest and probably the largest
iron ore mine in the world is located
at Kiruna Lapland in latitude S'a de-
grees north which is about the same
as the northernmost boundary of
Alaska. The climate is somewhat
milder than in Alaska and these
mines are worked the year around.
About 1.000 men are employed and
ihe equipment is all of the most mod-
ern machinery obtainable. Machine
tools for the repair shop air com-
pressors and rock drills and sev-
eral of the largest steam and electric
shovels are of American make. The
plant is at present operated by steam
power the coal supply doming from
England and Spitsbergen but the
electrification of the mines is in
progress and this power will be used
exclusively as soon as the new power
plant of the state of Sweden now
under construction at Porjus Tails
ia completed. The transmission line
is completed and it is expected that
the power station will be ready to de-
liver current early in 1914. One hun-
dred and fifty thousand horsepower
will be the capacity of this fetation
and It will be transmitted over a dis-
tance of l.0 miles. The state railway
between Kiruna and Narvik la being
electrified arid will be operated from
this station. The ore ib shipped from
Kiruna to N'aifik on the Norwegian
coast by rail and from there by water
to Germany a small percentage find-
ing its way to other countries.

Because It Was Underweight.
Under the pure iod and drugs act
ten cases were recently brought
against a New York city firm which
is in the candy business making a
specialty of what is known as "penny
goods." All the goods were found to
be adulterated. .Most of them con-
tained shellac and some of ihem also
contained arsenic. In every case the
lirm pleaded guilty. Most of the can-
dies were sold as chocolate candies
but contained little or none of that
product. These are the goods bought
by small children who have received
a cent or two from parents or friends.
