HIGHWAY BUILT IN QUAKING BOG Scenic Wonder in Glades Is Made by CCC Workers in West Virginia. MARLINTON, W. Vs., (UP) -Cranberry Glades, West Virginia's scenic wonder which heretofore has been a veritable wilderness, ia open to tourist travel through completion by CCC workers of a r-oad from Richwood, W. Va.. through the glades, and on to Marlington, civilian conservation corps officials an' notince. Cranberry Glades, situated in the high region of western Pocahontaa county, in reality is only one glade, containing some 300 to 400 acres of dense forest which abound in game Within the glade there are five open spaces, the largest being about S5 acres. Each open space is separated from the others by winding, sluggish streams. Known as Wilderness. The area, known as the "wilderness of Pocahontas county," is drained by hundreds of clear, trout laden mountain brooks that flow into the Cranberry, Gauley, Elk and Williams rivers. It is said there is no area of equa extent in West Virginia that is o: greater importance for its influence on water flow than the Cranberry Glades which lay in an elevation of 3,400 feet above the sea and are ·surrounded by mountains rising from 1,000 to 1,500 feet. Varied plant. Life. Of never-ending sources of de light to the tourist, and more to the student and collector, ar the varied forms of plant and ani real life. Two thousand varieties o orchids bloom in colorful contras upon the metallic sheen of the mos carpet. As many as 32 orchids hav been counted in a square foot. Natives call the area the."quak ing bog" for the ground quiver and sha.kes for rods around whe pome one walks on it. This is cause by the top carpet of mosses resting upon soft mire of about 20 feet deep. FARMERS CO-OPS GIVE DIVIDEND ight Per Cent Declared; Annual Meeting to Be Feb. 11. CLEAR LAKE.

I EIGHT MURDERS SOLVED BY DOG Canine Detective in Berlin Police Force Member Since 1928. BERLIN (UP)--What is said to be the best detective-dog in the world belongs to the dog- section of the Berlin police. This smart four-legged detective, named Schimmel, has solved eight murder cases as well as numeroLis robberies, holdups and other crimes. The so-called "wonderdog" is 8 years old and has been a member of the Berlin police force since 1928. In a recent case the dog gave another proof of his ability and smartness when eight other dogs from his section had failed. It found the sody of a murdered boy concealed about half a meter under ground in thickly wooded forest.. The child was a victim of the boykiller, Seefeld. Refuses io Be Misled. This little "detective" proved his cleverness to 80 jurists, among whom were both foreign and German judges and attorneys. The jurists walked over a field to destroy and stamp out all trace of scent on the dog's trail. But it took Schimmel less than three minutes to find the hidden object. This dog receives the same food as all its fellows, except that after each gallant performance it receives a. bag full of Pfefferkuchen, its favorite delicacy. Schimmel's trainer is Paul Boettger, the chief of the dog-detective section. Boettger is the oldest police-dog trainer in the world. Dog Entirely White. The dog is entirely white, a rare color for German shepherds, which are usually brown, black or spotted black and white. This peculiarity explains its name Schimmel, which in German means "white horse." The idea of using dogs for detective work originated with Herr Laufer. a former attorney. In 1901. when the town of Schwelm. Westphalia, riid not have enough money to employ sufficient police officers, every policeman on duty was ordered tf take a shepherd dog with him as protector. A year later Capt. von Stephanitz, spread the idea of using dogs in the police foicc as scouts, 'iackers, etc. Ever since then, the German shepherd dog has been known all over t h e world. The best known German shepherd dog was thf la to Rin-Tin- Tin, the famous movie star. AREA IN SOUTH SUFFERS PLAGUE Doctors Baffled by Toll of Tuberculosis m Valley of Tennessee. NEW ORLEANS. (UP)--A zone of high tuberculosis mortality has been located in the Tennessee valley and medical science is still unable to explain it. A survey of the area has been made by Dr. Carl C. Dfiuer, assistant professor of preventive medicine in the Tulane university graduate school of medicine. Re stilts of the survey will be presented to the National Tuberculosis asso elation convention in New Orleans April 22-25. New York authorities of the Til berculosia association are reporte* to have told Dr. Dauer that hi findings "constitute the most im portant contribution in a decade t the knowledge of the tuberculosi problem of this country." Dr. L. L. Lumsden, New Orleans medical director of the United States public health service collaborated with Dr. Datier in the work. Survey hy Counties. The two doctors gathered available data on tuberculosis in nearly a score of states to reach their conclusions.

' 23.--The Every Pupil Testing program spon- =orert by the State University of Iowa will be held at the local schools Jan. 27 and 28. The testing will take place during the forenoon of both days. Sixth, seventh and eighth grades will take the tests which arc in three parts, silent rending comprehension, vocabulary and basic study .·skills, basic language skills and basic arithmetic skills. The same testa will be used for thf three grades except a different standard will be maintained for each group. county-by-county basis, to give medical science its first chance to see the distribution of the disease in c i e a r 1 y-marked geographical cases. Among both white and Negro populations in the Tennessee valley region, which embraces rough-1 ,y the northern extremities of Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. | the Tennessee Valley proper and the Blue Grass region of Kentucky, the death rates were found to be strikingly high. In the old-age brackets of the white population. Dr. Dauer said, there was. in the four-year period of 1929-30, an annual average of 92.6 mortalities per 100.000 persons, compared with 56 for the country as a whole. There was no apparent explanation for the prevalence of the disease in the 40,000-square mile area, which is for the most part rural. The humidity there is not excessive, and the literacy, medical facilities and average incomes of the region compare favorably with those in other places of the southeast, the doctors said. Mills Not Cause. Nor could it be explained by comparisons with bovine tuberculosis. Dr. Dauer found that cattle in this area suffer comparatively little from Uie ailment, whereas there is a large percentage of bovine tuberculosis in the far south, a region where low tuberculosis mortality prevails among human beings. Dr. Dauer's charts show that the death rate goes down to the south and east of the Smoky and Cumberland mountains, and drops remarkably along an arc which could be drawn through the approximate centers of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama. Georgia. South Carolina and North Carolina. Below this line, which oddly coincides with the edge of the southern pine belt, there was a mortality of only 37.4 per 100.000 in the \vhi'te population in the 192933 period.
