Take Care of the Teeth.
Unsound teeth are conveyors
of the germs of disease. In Val
paraiso, Ind.. there was an epi
demic of scarlet fever that de
tied the city authorities. Month
after month, despite the strictest
quarantine, the plague went ou
among the children. Finally, by
a course of elimination, the au
thorities decided that the infec
tion was being carried in the
mouths of the children. Every
child whO'entered school was ex
amined, and its teeth were put in
good condition. Within a few
weeks there was no scarlet fe
ver. Examinations made in Chi
cago by the board of health show
that the micro-organisms that
produce scarlet fever, diphtheria
and all other children's diseases
can be found in the cavities of
decayed teeth fully five weeks
after the child has been declared
cured. The faithful use of the
toothbrush should be made a
part of the school requirements
in all parts of the country, as it
is now in some classes in Massa
chusetts, and all parents should
be made to understand that den
tal care is as necessary as medi
cal attention for their children
and that money spent on the one
will often be saved on the other.

END OF OLDEST NEWSPAPER IN
One of the things which all newspa
pers boast of with pardonable pride is
their age. And it may be a little sur
prising to some to know that in that
regard the "Heathen Chinee" had all
the papers in the world beaten to a
frazzle until recently, according to the
following excerpt from the Scientific
The president of the Chinese Re
public, Yuan Schi Kai, recently sup
pressed the newspaper King-Bao,
which undoubtedly was the oldest pa

has reported the more important news
not only of China, but also of foreign

countries. At a time when the art of
printing and journalism was as yet
unknown in Europe, the Chinese Gong
Chung invented a means for making
types from lead and silver, and in the
year 400 A. D. the paper King-Bao was
printed, and has since been issued reg
ularly until recently. The first edition
was printed on ten sheets of yellow
silk, neatly tied together, and was thus
sent to all the high officials of the Chi
At the recent session of the Inter
national Bible Students' Association at
Washington, D. C, a resolution was
adopted repudiating as thoroughly un
scriptural "the teaching of a place,
state or condition of hell-fire and
brimstone for the torment of the
wicked." This was very consoling to
many of the people who don't care to
be worried about their future so much
and cannot conceive of a God who is
all Love, punishing His children in any
such manner. But it did not suit
some of the Afro-American brethren,
so they set apart last Sunday as "Hell
fire Day." Rev. Simon P. W. Drew,
of the Cosmopolitan Baptist church,
announced that he would preach in the
forenoon on "The Key to Hell," and
in the evening on "HellWith Fire in
It, Too." We don't know what the out
come was, but he no doubt made
things very warm for some of his hear
Old maids have generally been
looked upon with considerable disfa
vor, despite the fact that some of the
liveliest women that ever graced this
mundane sphere have been old maids.
But, now, some of the old maids are
to have a little consideration down in
Texas. A short time ago an old maid
named Miss Philpot died leaving $100,-
000 and her will instructs her admin
istrators to amply care for all old
maids who apply for assistance, for a
period of two years. One of the pro
visions is that the spinsters must not
admit but prove that they are 40 years
old or more. Of course a number
would rather go without assistance
than to make such an admission,
hence the fund will last a long time.
One often hears the complimentary
expression used: "His heart is in the
right place," and for one to have his
heart in the right place is usually a
good thing, but it happened to be a
good thing for David Krunish, an
eleven-year-old boy of New York, that
his heart was on the right side, in
stead of in the right place. Last
Monday he fell and was impaled on a
picket fence. One of the iron spikes
penetrated his left breast three inches
directly over the place where his
heart should be. As his heart was not
in the right place, he is now on the
road to recovery.
In order to have the heinousness
of any crime thoroughly investigated
and exploited and condemned it is
only necessary for the criminal to
have been born black, or some other
color than white. In fact, about the
greatest crime one can be guilty of is
to be born black. This is rather aw-'
ful to contemplate, too, in view of the
fact that SEVEN-EIGHTHS of the
population of the world were not born

Minneapolis. Theodore Roosevelt
is in the lead in Minnesota.
After having been first in the Wil
son column, then doubtful, then in the
Wilson column again, the state again
switched to Roosevelt.
Out of an approximate total of 3,000
precincts in the state, 1,880 precincts
complete gave Roosevelt a lead of a
little over 7,000 votes. Should he main
tain this lead he will carry the state
by about 15,000.
In view of the way the returns have
oscillated there is still a possibility
that Wilson may carry the state, but
this is doubtful. The precincts named
above give Roosevelt, 91,985 Wilson,
84,117 and President Taft 50,799.

It was though that Justice Holt
had been defeated, but later returns
gave him a lead of 10,000 in Henne
pin while the returns from the coun
try wiped out the balance against
him that the early returns Indicated.
Judge Brown has a lead of nearly 15,-
000, and his plurality may be over 25,-
000. The third, or losing, place is
still in doubt, with Bunn in the lead.

turns as far as the governorship is
concerned was the heavy vote cast
for E. E. Lobeck, the Prohibition
Lobeck carried his home county,
Douglas, by a substantial majority,
and pushed the two leading candi
dates hard in a number of other
counties. In Douglas county he polled
1,105 to 906 for Governor Eberhart
and 271 for Ringdal.
Collins' vote is regarded as a dis
appointment as the Democrats were
confident that he would pull down
from 40,000 to 50,000 votes. He was
regarded as a menace to the Demo
cratic candidate and everything pos
sible was done by the leaders to keep
votes away from him.
Senator Nelson Indorsed.
Senator Nelson is overwhelmingly
indorsed. His majority will be fully
65,000. The 1,495 precincts in the

Democratic opponent, 66,114.

at-large, is also a big winner. His

The strength which President Taft
developed shows conclusively what
might have ben done for the presi
dent had the national committee com

The revival of Taft sentiment came
late, but it was marked all along the
line. Republicans voted freely for
Woodrow Wilson and in Minnesota, as
in other states, turned the tide' to
the Democratic candidate through lack
of confidence in the chance of their
own candidate to win.
Court Rules Are Revised.
Washington, Nov. 5.Revolutionary
changes in procedure in equity cases
in federal courts throughout the Unit
ed States are effected in revised rules
promulgated by the supreme court of
the United States. The object is to
reduce the cost of litigation and to
eliminate delays. The new rules were
announced by Chief Justice White
from the bench. One of the tasks un
dertaken by him when he was appoint
ed chief justice was to reform pro
cedure in the courts.. He first revised
the rules of the supreme court itself.
