Long litigation over possession of n loaf of bread at last has confirmed the claim of a common carrier to posses- j sion of articles left behind by forget- j fill passengers, says the New York i Telegraph. By such seemingly trifling j Incidents are established principles of j law and equity often brought to the i attention of the public. j The issue grew out of the arrest of a man who picked up a package left by another passenger, on a seat of a New York subway train. The trainmaster demanded the package under the company's rule requiring all such estrays to be turned in at the office, subject to claim by the owners. Although it then was discovered that the package con-tainod nothing more valuable than a 5-cent loaf of bread the matter went to litigation. Through all the devious ways that such seemingly petty cases get up to i the highest court, the case reached the Court of Appeals of the state. There, after as solemn deliberation as is given ; to Issues involving large amounts of ! money and more momentous principles, the ctnirt held that the rule of the company was based on a well-established principle of law. The finder could have no claim to the article as having been lost. It merely hud been left by the owner on the property of the carrier, who at once became bailee for the owner. The other person, instead of acquiring any right to It as lindr under the law, technically became a thief If he retained it, notwithstanding his expressed intention to advertise for the owner. X-Ray Cancer Treatment. Remarkably successful results in the treatment of cancer are expected at the London hospitals, Whitechapel, by the "Dual Method" of applying X-rays. "The system had then been only recently Installed," writes a medical correspondent, "and It Is too soon to make a definite claim of permanent cure. At least five years must elapse without i recurrence of cancerous growths be- j fore it can be confidently said that the 1 disoase is cured. But one of the cases with X-rays. IVath had seemed cer tain within a lew weeks, but he is now-back in active practice." Pearls From Herrings. "French pearls" were very popular before the war. To make these artificial pearls, the French craftsmen obtained fish scales from the Russian bleak fisheries, and used these sheeny scales to give glass beads the luster of pearls. The war stopped the Russian fishermen, and consequently French pearl-makers could no longer work, i Therefore great efforts were made to find a substitute for the Russian fish scales. Now it has been found that the scales of certain sea herring and shad possess a delicate luster similar to oriental 'pearls. The silvery coating is removed and from It "essence d'Orient" or pearl essence is made, i The essence adheres like cement ; and a glass bead which has been coated with it bears a passable resemblance to a genuine pearl.

The cry that Itussia was wholly without needles, pins and thread was apparently without foundation. The abolition of domestic trade restrictions has produced a great quantity of such articles in Russian market stalls. They are of Russian, English, German and American manufacture. Much of this supply doubtless was hoarded and could be had secretly before free trade was Inaugurated. Darning cotton and wool, hooks and eyes, hairpins, combs, brushes, buttons and other notions also are offered freely, but at high prices in comparison with the markets of western Europe. Cloth is scarce and apparently of inferior quality. Market stalls seldom have more than a few yards of any sort of cotton or woolen fabrics. Porcelain Is also scarce. The only really good table silver and porcelain is in the hands of hundreds of reduced gentlefolk, who stand in queues about the public markets and offer their household belongings for the rubles necessary to buy black bread at 3,000 rubles for a Russian pound .of 12 ounces. Every conceivable household article and every sort of garment can be bought In these queues. Chairs, chandeliers, lamps, stoves, carpets, rugs, saddles, trunks, talking machines, beds, bicycles, pots, pans, kettles, table' linen, fur coats, boots, evening gowns and every sort of wearing apparel are offered for sale by their owners in these queues.
