From countries ns far apart as
tho cuds of tbo habitiiblo globo
coiiio reports of u great iutorost
being taken in tbo question of
preventive measures ngaiuat the
most fearful scourgo of modem
times cotiBtimptiou. Do you
think that tho phraso just used to
doscribo thattlisoasois too strong?
Thfti tnko tho troublo to got stat
istics of maladies prevnlont in al
most every country leaving out
swooping pestilenco in predispos
ed loculitios and liniitod times
and you will find that where any
other foe nf humankind has slain
it- ttMis consumption has slain its
hundrt-ds. Some proof of this is
at baud, but you are not going to
bo troubled bore with figures.
You are asked to accept tho state
ment hb fact, failing authority to
disprove it. Enough for tho present
argument that consumption is a
dreadfully foil disease. If you
read foreign papers to any extent,
you arc awuto that extraordinary
measures are boiug adopted or
at least agitated for both tbo pre
vention of tho malady and its cure
in early stages. Horo is an in
slauceof munificent philanthropy,
in a London dispatch of not older
date than four weeks ago: "Baron
ess Hiredi, tbo widow of tho lato
Huron Hirsch, baa given 80,000
(.about four hundred thousand
dollars to found a hospital in
England for ohildron suffering
Those islands are sometimes
Touresontod ns having the quali
ties of n sanitarium for persons
suffering fiom, or liable to, lung
troubles. And there is no doubt
that lhe Hawaiian climate is bene
ficial for that class of tho ills to
wliiuh flesh is heir. Many seek
our balmy air when it is too lato,
Which, to snmo oxtont, accounts
for tho cousidorablo proportion of
deaths from lung nlfoctions, both
in gonoral vital statistics and in
hospital reports. That alarm has
taken hold horo, upon tho strength
of current medical declarations iu
great centers, regarding the dang
er from tuberculous gorms, has
become evident iu different ways.
It is not known, at this writing,
whether tho oauso, c'tthor wholly
or par.tly, aokiuted tho recently
publishod decision of tho trustoes
of the Queen's Hospital to admit
no consumptive pationts into that
iastitutiou. If thoy Iiavo no moans
far providing isolated accommoda
tion and attondanco for phthisical
eubjoots, thoy are probably doing
tho right thing iu this exclusion.
'. Unless a gouoral hospital sets out
to cure this class of diseaso, when
not iu too advanced a stage, it can
not be hotter than any ordinary
shelter for ones nffoctod thoroby.
There aro peculiarities of such
ailmonts whioh would mako harm
ful tho placing of their subjects
within sight or sound of other
sufferors. Upon good authority,
however, it may bo said that pre
cautions to prevent infection, so
far as that is concorned, are quito
feasiblo for obviating tho neces
sity of segregation, as to detached
I buildings, for consumptive pa
' tionts. Thero is reason to believo
that much exaggeration has char
acterized soma of tho talk in lato
yoars about the infectiousness of
consumption. If it were not bo,
thero would bo only preternatur
ally tough survivals of the human
race in most civilized countries
Ought not a movoraont bo set
on foot in theso islands for pro
Tiding dofinito means of prevent
ing tbo ravages of consumption ?
What has beon said about tho
natural conditions of Hawaii hav
ing tho character of a sanitarium
cannot be 'gainsaid. Olimato
alono, though, will notproventtho
existent gorms of disoaso from
doing their deadly work. Tho
aids of scienco must be employed,
or else our favorable climate will
ouly ucceutuato the bitter reality
of accomplished mischief. Saua
toriums should bo established aud
the best medical skill employed
therein for the cute of pulmonary
complaints befoto thoy have
reached a hopeless stngo. There
am sanitariums within the Hani
tariuni of tho group, but that term
dojs not cover what is horo advo
cated. Whore rest aud looreativo
atmosphoro alone ar needed by
an iuvalid ho betakes himself to a
sanitarium a more boarding
house or hotel amidst the whole
some conditions required for his
case. A sanatorium, on the other
hand, is an institution where me
dical sciouco is provided to sup
plement the kindly offices of
nature. At loast one such insti
tution has lately been started by
private enterprise on the Island
of Hawaii, but tho reador may bo
assured thut this article is intend
ed not at all to advertise any in
stitution of tho kind, however,
well conducted and successful
according to tho scale of its capa
city. Its intont is solely to gain
public support for tho proposi
tion of establishing in differ
ent central locations of the
group publio institutions of that
kind. Hot only for tho predis
posed or the affected of our resi
dent population, but for tho in
valids attracted or dirooted bore
through the fame of our naturally
healthful olimato for such will
continue to come here and human
ity cannot allow thorn to bo bar
rod out aro snob institutions not
merely desirable but necessary.
In whatever dogreo tuborculous
disoaso is infectious, each case
loft unguarded aud lot run its
course makos ono moro foous of
dissemination, and thoro is reason
to fear that tho malady as well as
its propagating 6oods aro on tho
increase in theso fair isles. With
certain eloments of our food sup
ply moro than threatened of
which tho authorities have boon
compollod to tako cognizance
the occasion for general action,
both for prevention and euro of
this class of malady, is a closo
second in soriouBuess to that
which has boon rocognizod aud
acted upon, at unstinted cost, for
many yoars with regard to Ha-
scourgo of more hidoous
Whilo tho public mind is being
brought up to tho work of practical

advice on this t-coro in a foroign

for (I we lings, personal precnu-
! tious against infection, including
the avoidance of intermarrying
with phthisical blood, abstention
from occupations detrimental to
one's constitution, aiid so forth.
Regarding a matter of worldwide
concern, but which has only just
ooino home to the people of theso
islands, this authority who ad
vocates sanatoriuras for the
phth sically affected in his own
land has tho following to say:
"The dauger from tubercular llesh
aud milk is, of course, very great.
But the condemnation of tuber
cular cattle will help to prevent
infection through tho digestive
organs, while the propor boiling
of milk renders oven that obtain
ed from cows with tubercular
udders incapable of convoying
tuberculosis." Similar discus
sions of this causo of great
human anxioty might be cited
from the pnss of iivo continonts.

HOW TO KEEP COOL IN
During this sultry variable
weather, so productive of
moist shirt collars and limp
neckwear, the mind naturally
reverts to something cool and
refreshing. It is not every
one that can afford one of the
handy refrigerators so much in
vogue, but an ICE CHEST
which is just what its name
implies is within the reach of
most people. We carry them
in four sizes, They are cheap,
economical, handy and dur
able, and we have just received
a fresh invoice of them.
We have also a new con
signment of the ALASKA
REFRIGERATORS in five
sizes, at greatly reduced prices.
They are charcoal lined and
are the best in the market.
We have also the NOVEL
TY CIRCULAR REFRIGE
RATOR. It is made of metal
throughout, is handsomely
painted, has adjustable rotary
shelves which can be raised or
lowered at any angle, will hold
more ice and more meat or
