THE CURE OF LEPROSY.
Medical science is making' rapid
strides toward the cure of what
have heretofore been considered in
Smallpox lias lost its terrors.
Tetanus has iwet defeat. Hospitals
for tho cure of tuberculosis have
been opened and are operating suc
cessfully in many parts of the
world. Scientists announce a cure,
if not a pievcntative, for cholera.
But of all the cures that have
startled the world, none is of more
importance that the leprosy cure.
Leprosy. has been considered an in
curable disease throughout the
past ages, but medical science now
comes to the front and makes tho
surprisins statement that, if at
tended to in its early stages, it can
Manila is in the van with the
up-to-date improvements of treat
ing that dread disease, and every
treatment known to the medical
piofession is being employed here
to effect cures of those who are in
the early stages of tho disease.
A new X-ray plant has been in
stalled at San Lazavo Hospital for
that purpose. The old plant used
by Dr. Wilkinson at San Lazaro
gave out shortly- after the an
nouncement surprised the medical
and scientific world, but his work
had to be abandoned, owing to the
failure of his apparatus.
It is a matter .of .public record
that Dr. Wilkinson cured several
persons, who remained cured for
six months. Had it been possible
to have continued the treatment,
it is believed the cure would have
been permanent. Dr. Wilkinson
said, at the time he was obliged to
abandon the. treatment, that while
he hoped tho cures were perma
nent, all indications of tho disease
having disappeared, yet he thought
Few people give enough thought to tho earning

When you find yourself thinking of your dollars
in.this way, you aro starting on the only straight
and sure road to wealth. Idle dollars aro of no more
use to the world than idle men. Every dollar you

bank and kept busily at work earning other dollars

it better to continue the ray treat
ment for several years.
When the old plant gave out,
Dr. Hciser ordered a new plant. It
arrived recently, was placed in the
San Lazaro Hosiptal and electrical
connections made. The work was
then placed in charge of Dr. Goff.
At the present time patients, in
the first stages of the dread disease,
arc being treated, and from day to
day the reports taken from the
symptons of the patients aro en
couraging to the medical profession.
Every effort will be made and no
stone left unturned to give the
treatment a most thorough and
Another treatment used in San
Lazaro Hospital is that of Chaul
moogra oil. It is a matter of re
cord that two lepers were .cured by
this treatment in Louisiana, U. S.
A. The cures were pronounced
permanent. Other cases of cures
are reported from South America.
The Chaulnioogra oil used hern
is obtained from France, and is of
the best quality.
Tho treatment of all cases in the
early stages has begun in earnest,
and the final results will be watch
ed with interest, not only by the
vesidents of these islands, but by
the entire civilized wurld. Manila

SOLOMON WAS BASHFUL.
A native boy employed on a
plantation having become engaged
to a sixteen-year-old maiden living
on the same plantation showed a
bashfulness about the affair that'
even exceeded that of the fiancee.
They set October 3rd as the day of
the wedding nnd it was necessary
that Solomon should have a holi
day in order to give the event a
proper observance, lie was very
willing to lose a day's work but
lacked the courage to ask his em
ployers for such a privilege. His
sweetheart entreated him repeated
ly to speak to his boss, but every
iinc ho backed away from such a
bold undertaking, saying, "Me
shamo." Finally she declared, "I
will speak myself!'' Accordingly
sho indited the following note to
Mr. Manager: I like you please
so kindly leave Solomon off one
day Wednesday as wo wish to
make him my marriago husband."
Tho request was immediately

WASHINGTON, December 20.
The United States will have im
ported an aggregate of nearly $50,
000,000 worth of crude India rub
ber atthe close of the present year,
according to a statement made pub
lic today by the Bureau of Statis
tics of the Department of Com
merce and Labor. Tho valuo of
the India rubber importations has
increased more than 200 per cent
in a decade. The United States
consumes more than one-half of
tho world's production, and the
enormous growth in the importa
tions is attributed to the popularity
bf the bicycle and automobile,
coupled with the increased' uso of
The statement says the indica
tions seem tojustify the belief that
the Philippine and Hawaiian is
lands are capable of producing
large quantities of this article as a
result of this Government's estab
lishment of nurseries in those pos
sessions for tho distribution of rub
ber plants for use of rubber plantations.
RUBBER ON KAUAI.
An experiment that will be
watched with great interest has
been started by Manager Sanborn
of tho Princoville Plantation.
Rubber is engrossing the attention
of a increasing number of. people
in tho islands and the owner of
Princeville, Mr. A. S. Wilcox, de
cided some time ago to give the
new industry a trial. He secured
a lot of seed and gave Mr. Sanborn
order to go ahead and find out how
rubber would do on the estate.
Mr. Sanborn now has a large
number of trees planted out in tho
different localities, at elevations
from fifteen to four hundred feet
above sea level, in sheltered places
and in the open and is watching
the progress. The trees have so
far showed a very satisfactory
growth, but as to the quality and
quantity of rubber behind the
bark, it is, of'course, as yet impossi
ble to form any conclusion. Gar
