He was ayouug-nian in the ISSO'S, when the famous Hatfield-McOoy "border war" broke out. A first cousin of "Devil Anse" Hatfield, he lost many a kinsman in the fighting. But somehow Tolbert Hatfield managed to remain on peaceful terms with both sides and he died in his bed a few days ago at the age of 89. We were sorry to read of his death, because he seems to have been one of the world's real experts on neutrality under difficult circumstances. SCIENCE VS.

One of the; engineers at N-fcw York's World fair decided to roast a succulent )Vpg i1j>^ ^tj, a 5,QOO,000-volt shot of electricity—to do the old job better in a new way. He fixed up the wiener with a hail in one end, grounded the other- end and switched on the man-made bonfire. To the astonishment of the assembled dignitaries, the dog was as cold as before. Seven times the voltage was applied and seven times the dog defied progress. The engineers were thrown into a dither, of course, but they decided the duration of the charge, something like one sixteen-millionth of a second, was too short. It's not at all important, but in a day of mechanization somehow we are glad to know that the way to roast a hot dog is still to cut a stick, iinpale the dog on the sharp end and hold it over the glowing ernbei-s of a comfortable bonfire. So they say Finland has "directly threatened" the Soviet Union. Can it be that Finland is turning out to be a vicious nation like Ethiopia and Czechoslovakia? ••-- 'Yes, popcorn without hulls has at last been produced. The next step, we suppose, will be to develop corn that pops with a muted tone. Answers to Your ems Bj LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. Acetanilid Poisoning THE UNITED Stated Department of Agriculture writes to ask me: "Do you consider the daily administration of nine grains of acetanilid and to grains of bromide, or \ either, separately, ovtr an unlimited period of time, dangerous?" In my opinion the dosage of nine grains of acetanilid daily results in a definite form of poisoning. I do not believe the administration of that amount of bromide is danger- Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and, ,$en only through his column. . ous, nor do I believe that the bromide steps up or increaaea the toxic effects of the acetanilid. Acetanilid poisoning usually appears in individuals who do not know that they are taking acetani- lid." They get Into the habit of taking a pick-me-up in the morning. The symptoms of acetanilid poisoning consist in a change in the complexion, constipation and mental . depression. The complexion assumes a peculiar muddy appearance, the lips get blue.

Gas Masks for Migraine What is the value of the use o) oxygen tanks and gas masks in the treatment to/migraine? This treatment is somewhat new and has. become popular lately largely because the means to administer oxygen economically, efficiently and comfortably have greatly increased. Migraine headaches are of several types and, the use of oxygen willnot relieve all of them, but reports from large clinics indicate that this treatment has a definite place. A beneficial effect is most frequently obtained when the patient has a definite prodromal period or aura, when he knows that the migraine attack is going to come on. When oxygen is administered during this prodromal period, the attack is often side-tracked. For this reason it is practical to have ah oxygen apparatus placed in the home for the migraine sufferer for immediate use when the symptoms indicate it. In some patients the use of oxygen combined 'with the use of ergo- tamine tartrate has been very beneficial. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Mrs. B.: "Will a teaspoonful of table salt, taken upon arising every morning, cause any change in the quality of th« blood? What about lemon juice taken at the same time?" Answer—The body needs a certain amount of salt every day, but not nearly as much as a teaspoonful. However, it does no harm, because 'las soon as the blood and tissues have mil they need, it is passed off by the kidneys. Lemon juice is a fine vi- taliser and alkalizer. It does nc barm, but good.

CHAPTER THIRTJC-THKEEJ JOSIE'S astounding statemen that she intended to marry Bruc Orton was the greatest shock o my life. My knees gave under m and I sat down hard. Thank good I ness, there was a chair behind me I could not speak. I could scarcelj breathe. If she was going to marry Bruce Orton, what of Alan Murray ? I had been so sure that she and he love< «ach other. What had happened t_ so completely change her? I stared like a witless goop at her as ~ stammered: "Wha—what about Alan Mur ray?" Joe'.e's immobile face turned toward me. "Alan Murray," she said steadily. Not a trace of hesitation was in her voice. "Nothing. Why should there be?" "Bu—but I thought you 1—liked him!" "I do like htm. I like him very much." Still that stony note ruled her roice. "But likipg has nothing to do with marrying. It is Bruce : am going to marry." A tiny sigh escaped her lips. That sigh broke the spell. _ rushed to her side and dropped to tne floor beside her. I put both arms around her and held her closety. "Don't do it, Josie," I cried "Don't do it. Don't marry one man while you love another. It isn't fair to you, to the man you love, and most of all Is It unfair to the man you marry. I know you love Alan Stick to him regardless of what may be said." My last words were Influenced by a thought which popped into my head. «Could she have been with Neal while I was absent? Had he so worked upon her tender sisterly love that she had promised herself to Orton to please him? Yet I hadn't thought Neal cared for Orton to that extent. Only a few hours before Josle had confessed to me that she believed either Bruce Orton or Joseph Barry killed her mother. Now she was calmly proclaiming her intention to marry Bruce. I shook my head angrily in an attempt to dispose of these hampering thoughts which clogged my brain. I must listen. Josie was speaking. "I have my reasons, Sally. Reasons I • can't tell anyone. Please don't try to dissuade me ? I am going to marry Bruce Orton." Of course, after that, there was nothing I could say. I rose to my feet, bent and kissed her, a gentle kiss dropped on that soft shining mass of brown carls. Silently I prepared for bed. When I dropped off to sleep, Josie was still sitting by the window, her gr«e fixed on the black earth and sfcll blacker sky, for the moon was obscured by heavy clouds. In the morning she was sleeping when I rose, and I quietly dressed and went downstairs. I wanted her to sleep as long as possible. Perhaps in her dreams she could forget her troubles for a time. Her calmness hadn't fooled me one bit. I was still convinced that she loved Alan Murray. But why she was crushing that love, why she was gt>lng to marry Bruce Orton, I couldn't even guess. X waa In the lounge when Josie entered just as Orton came in the front door. On his face was a happy triumphal^ expression, an expression which made me want to choke him when I looked at Josie's white face. Yet I was forced to admit that she did not seem unhappy She greeted him with a gentle smile, and all through the breakfast hour they conversed in low tones. It was not impossible to believe, looking at her now, that she had found she preferred Bruce Orton. They went out together after breakfast and I, busy about the few duties Chloe allowed me, forgot them for a time. I was straightening our room an hour later when Chloe came to me. "Miss Gordon, that Alan Murray's downstairs. Miss Josie tol' me befo' she an 1 Mister Orton went out that If he came she didn't want to see him. 'He'll understan',' she said. I tol' him an 1 he turned as white as a graveyard ghos'." She looked with wise eyes at me. "He asked fo' you'. I 'spects yo'd better go down an' see him. P'raps you can comfort him a bit." There was a hint of command In her voice and I dropped my work and went down to the lounge. Alan was standing at the foot of the stairs, looking out into the> rear grounds. His face, as he turned to me, was the saddest I ever had seen. "Miss Gordon," he began quickly, "perhaps I shouldn't have come to you, but I had to do something. Can you tell me, will you tell me, what has happened?" "I don't know, Alan." I didn't realize until long after that I called him by that name. His apparent sorrow made me want to comfort him as I would a small boy. "What did she say?" he asked bluntly, and as bluntly I replied. "That she is going to marry Bruce Orton." "That's what she wrote me," he iried. "I can't understand it. She told me she loved me and some day, after this is all over," he gestured vaguely around, "we would be married. Then, last night she wrote she had changed her mind. That she is iroing to marry Orton. What does t mean?" he cried wildly. "I can't give her up. I can't!" A mad thought flashed through my mind. I looked closely at Alan. His face, sorrov*tul and strained, was yet frank and honest. She couldn't believe that he killed her mother and thus turn in revulsion >om him! Or could she? It was just as I reached that question that Lancy's voice called us. "Miss Gordon," it said, "will you and Murray step in here for a moment?" Startled, we looked at each other. He must have heard every word we said. There was nothing o do but obey his request. With dragging feet I went, followed by Alan, to the office. Captain Lancy was standing in the doorway. "Come in and sit down," he said quietly. He waited until we were eated, closed the door and placed himself at the desk. "Murray," he said, in a low sym- >athetic voice, "I don't want you o think I am Interfering in what s none of my business, but I over- eard your conversation with Miss Gordon. It may seem a sneaky thing to do, but while I'm investigating a murder, I never hesitate to listen to anything which is being said. Now"—he leaned forward and eyed Alan intently—"anything out of the ordinary always pays for Investigation, and I judge, from your words, that this is a very extraordinary happening, at least to you. Am I right?" Alan, I think, resented Captain Lancy's words, yet under the circumstances he was forced to agree with what the detective said. His voice, when he spoke, was low and firmly controlled. • "It is, Captain Lancy. I can't understand why Josie—Miss Peake— should take this step. If we had quarreled or any misunderstanding had come between us, anything at all, I could see a reason for her act. But I left her just before dinner last night. Everything was Just as usual. She was the same as she always had been. At nine o'clock last night I received a note from her. It merely said for me not to try to see her again as she had decided to marry Bruce Orton. "At first I nearly went mad. I started over here, but I saw a light in her room and thought I had better wait until morning. Chloe t*ld me when I asked for Josie—en— Miss Peake—that she didn't want to see me. So I asked for Miss Gordon. I thought she might know what made Josie," he forgot the Miss Peake that time, "write me such a note. It isn't fair not to tell me why," he cried, anger and pain in his voice. Lancy stroked his chin as he considered Alan's words. "The obvious answer to that," he said quietly, "is that Miss Peake saw, received or was told something last night which has persuaded or—forced—her to change her mind." His voice changed, grew hard, commanding; in his eyes glowed an ir-placable light "Do you know anything of Mrs. Peake's murder?" Was it possible that Alan hesitated for just an instant before he answered Lancy's question? Yet I was ready to swear, from the startled frankness of his tone, that he answered truthfully. "I, sir? No, I don't know anything at all." "Where did you go when you left here the night she was killed? After your first call, I mean?" "Home, sir. Miss Ivy wa? there when I got back, so I didn't come back again—until I came with her." Again I wa"s willing to swear he was telling the truth, yet again I detected a shade of hesitation which made me think- he could have answered differently had he desired. "Do you know where Miss Peake was or vfho she was with last night, Miss Gordon." "No, I don't. She wasn't In the ounge or her room when I came back from Mrs. Rutherford's, but when I returned from talking with you she was in her room. That's when she told me about Orton." "I see. Well, there's just one hing to do. Have Orton in and find out what he knows about this sudden change of hers." (To Be Continued) Alaskan Fisherman Tells of Job On Visit Here (By LEE KRUSKA) Practically everyone in Mason county is well acquainted with salmon in the can tout how many have ever actually seen one alive? The answer is simple; very, few. Some interesting tales concerning salmon fishing in Alaska were related to the writer recently iby Jim Dolan, formerly of Ludington, who is visiting in Ludington at the home of his sister, Mrs. John Meissner, 412 North Robert street. Mr. Dolan, employee! by the Pacific American Fisheries, has fished salmon for the past 21 years, most of them off the Alaskan coast. His company's winter quarters are in Bellingham, Wash., on Puget Sound. Salmon industry is big business in Alaska according to Mr. Dolan who says that from 800 to 900 American 'boats fish there annually. Fishing is open to American citizens only. Fishing season, he said, regulated by the U. S. government, lasts only six weeks, although it varies in different localities. It takes the 'boats anywhere from 10 to 17 or 18 days after leaving Bellingham,. to reach fishing grounds near the Aleutian islands. Fishing boats, -which vary in length from 50 to 70 feet, are Diesel operated and generally carry a crew of about eight men. They leave Bellingham in late April, more than a month before the season opens. Rush Season "Once the season gets underway," Mr. Dolan stated, "there's not much rest for us as we have to 'make hay while the sun shines.' The same is true at our compnay's nine Alaskan canneries. They work day and night. "Three principal methods of salmon fishing are fish traps, accurately reproduced," he said, "in a recent movie, 'Spawn of the North'; purse-seine nets and gill nets. Our most effective method is the purse-seine. "For this type of fishing we use a net about 5,000 feet long," he continued. "Our boat cruises along with a small skiff containing two men in tow. One i end of the purse-seine net is' fastened to the skiff. As soon as we reach water where we believe salmon will be found,- the skiff is released and the larger boat swings around in a gradual circle, meanwhile releasing the net. Bottom of the net is pulled down to a depth of 100 feet by lead sinkers. When the boat returns to the starting point after completing the circle, the net is fastened and by most American fishermen have a sort of silent boycott on Japanese goods," he added. Alaska has been coming to the front in the past few years as a scenic paradise for tourists, according to Mr. Dolan, who stated that every boat arriving in the summertime brings its quota of tourists. Upon being questioned in regard to the government's ma- tanuska valley experiment Mr. Dolan stated that "in spite of all reports to the contrary, I believe those people are a lot better off and more contented than most Americans are led to believe." selections.

"We don't find pirates at all where we fish—that Is around the Aleutian islands, Kodiak island—home of the giant Kodiak bear—and the Bering sea. They do have some trouble with pirates, I believe, in the southeastern part of the country, near Ketchikan. Prices Are Down Salmon prices, according to Mr. Dolan, aren't anything compared to what they were at various times in the past. "Once we got almost $2 apiece for sockeyes—today we get from 12 to 15 cents," he said with a rueful smile. Season's fishing dividends, it was learned, are divided into 12 shares; one to each of the eight members of the crew and two each for boat up-keep and nets, j Eskimos came In for a brie, discussion. "It's wonderful how they get around in their little "kayaks." It's always amazed me the way they're able to handle those round bottom things. Once I saw an Eskimo take his family of eight out for a ride." This is Mr. Dolan's first visit to Ludington in 15 years. He was accompanied to Ludington by his mother, Mrs. Marie Olson of Bellingham, Washington. They plan to leave for Southern California this week.

Pinks run heavily every two years," he explained. Dr. Dolan related extremely interesting facts about tides and weather conditions around Alaska and its islands. "One of the strangest sights I have ever seen," he declared, "is the way the tide comes at Cook's inlet, a large body of water in the southern part of the country. With a roar that can be heard for miles, it comes surging in two feet high at a clip. One of the fastest ways to get up the inlet is to have your boat out in the bay when the tide comes in. It'll take you as far as 30 miles up the inlet faster than you can get there with your motor. It might be called Mother Nature's rapid transit." Trouble With Japs Mr. Dolan, now thoroughly warmed to his subject, told an interesting story concerning Japs fishing off the Alaskan coast. "Although not supposed to be fishing salmon in these waters they have been doing it for years" he said. "We suspected it but could never get them with the goods. Whenever approached, they claimed they were fishing spider crabs, nearly as large as a washtub but not much in demand in America." • American fishermen, he said, pondered over some method to prove the Japs were flouting the salmon fishing law but nothing was accomplished until somebody hit upon the idea of taking a photographer aloft in an airplane. It worked. The photographer was able to get a picture of a Japanese boat fishing salmon with a two mile long gill-net, a great deal longer than American fishermen use. "After the U. S. government was furnished with proof the Japs were forced to discontinue fishing in that vicinity," he added, Boycott Japan "Because of such activities, who will preside.
