When tbe Disease Was Epidemic
at Chicago, He Claims, St.
Louis Was Remarkably
Free From It.
Chicago. Ill, March 3 "Tjphoid fever
epidemics In Chicago havo absolutely no
effect on the drinking water In St. Louis.
Remarkable as It may seem, the charts
which I have compiled and which I offer
as evidence show that when there Is high
death rate In Chicago from typhoid fever
there Is a. correspondingly low death rate
from the typhoid germ in St. Louis."
Such was the testimony of Professor "W.
P. Mason of the Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute of Troy, N. T., In the Missouri
Illinois canal suit before Commissioner
Attorney James Todd, who represents
the sanitary district of Chicago In the
case, says Professor Mason's testimony Is
the most Important that has been offered
for the defense and completely shatters
the contention of Missouri.
In.ihe course of his testimony. Professor,
vuouon reierreo. to Dacterioioglcal experi
ments on the water of the Illinois River
at its mouth. He said the samplesof wa-'
tcr he examined was free' from typhold
In his opinion, the typhoid fever germs,
Jf tfiey did find their way Into the drain
age canal In sewage In Chicago, died from
exposure to natural antagonlstfc'organlsm
exlsting In the canal water.
The charts Professor Mason submitted
brought out the peculiar relative condi
tions 'of typhoid fever In Chicago and St.
Louis. They tended to show that when
Chicago wa3 in the grasp of an extraordi
nary typhoid-fever epidemic St. Louis, at
that tlmeand for weeks following, was
enjoying almost perfect Immunity from
the disease. ,
In months in which typhoid-fever cases
in St. Louis Increased there was a corre
sponding decrease In the number of cases
reported to the Health Department In Chi
cago. TO -PRESERVE THE ALAMO.

DR. W. A. KEWIN. Lewln Building: U'8' ' "
My Dear Doctor After havingi Bartered with rupture for several
yean, upon the advice of my family physician I consulted you for
my trouble. At our first interview I felt confidence In you and your
method, especially deriving great encouragement from the fact that
you refused to accept your fee until I was cured to my entire satis
faction. Tou discharged me eight months ago. and I have felt no trouble
whatever. Last month, while visiting my daughter in the country.
I thought I would give this matter a thorough test. Seeing one or
two cords of wood piled up in the yard, and it being a pleasant day,
I commenced to saw and sp it the whole lot, and experienced no
troub,e-2.t a". . few days kter I rolled a large stone welshing be
tween 300 and 400 pounds all through the yard, finally lifting the
same in proper position. After these severe tests I feel satisfied
that I am perfectly cured, and have no hesitation In giving you
this testlmonla'. which you may publish If you desire.
I feel that whatever I can do for you will not repay what you did
Thanking you again for your kind and courteous treatment, I am
Very truly yours.

Thousands of similar letters are on file at my offlce. In fact, each one
of my 10,000 cured patlentB Is a living testimonial and only too happy to

in the belief that the congestion of
World's Fair Traffic at the Union Station
In St. Louis will be so great that some
relief will be necessary, officials ot the
East St Louis and Suburban Railway
Company have made plans to Induce ex
cursionists to use their line in preference
to the belt line.
With this end In a lew a diagram has
been prepared, showing how much more
convenient they believe passengers will
find it to transfer to the street railway
line at the Relay Depot- than to go
through to the Union Station or over the
belt line to the World's Fair grounds.
The officials hope to secure the concur
rent action of the railways that have ter
minals in East St Louis in making East
St. Louis the terminal Instead of St
Louis. Falling in this, thev will compete
with the steam roads for the short-haul

WILD WEST SHOW
TO CHANGE SITE.
British Commission Objected lo
Location of Pike Attraction;
Obstructing View of
A new location for the Zach Mulhall
Wild West Show, which wa3 announced
yesterday by' Director ot Works Isaac
Talor, has, for the second time, saved
the British Pavllllon from too close con
tact with features of the Pike.
Directly in front of the east windows
of the British Pavilion Is a triangular
strip of ground immediately north of the
"New York to the North Pole" conces
sion. The first plans were to have lo
cated on this strip a full-length model of
the ocean liner St. Louis, which would
have stretched across the view of the
English. Commission and shut off their
building from any sight of visitors farther
away than Sklnker road.
The scheme for the erection of the ocean
liner fell through, tome say from lack of
funds, while others insist that it was the
determined protest of the British Commis
sioner's representatUcs in St Louis that
led to Its abandonment
Then came a concessionaire who wanted
to show the bucking broncho and the cat
tle branding of the orthodox Wild West.
The location assigned was the same btrlp
or ground where it had been planned to
erect the steamship. This show was to
rave been placed in a corral of high board
fences, and above the wooden ramparts
would hae risen the tents for men and
animals connected with the circus.
Before any work had been done on the
site It was brought to the notlco of the
Director of Works, who started a cam
paign againt placing such an exhibit Just
across the road from so tasteful a struc
ture as the British building.
When asked as to the decision of the
Executive Committee regarding the Wild
West show. Director Taylor laughed and
"We won out on that at any rate, and
thp Wijd West Show will hae a site on
the Park View Realty tract, north of the
Until some definite disposition of this
triangular tract Is made, the DKIsIon of

GAS COLLECTIONS COail'LETED.
Extra Precaution,; Taken to Prevent
Fires on World's Fair Gronndn.
Down in the basement of Busch Hall,
ui oer the Department of Works, the
World's Fair gas offlce has been opened.
It Is In charre of Superintendent Antram,
who Is assisted by a force of men. who
are putting in meters as fast as applica
tions for ga3 connections are mide.
Underneath the whole World's Fair
irtunds Is a network of pipes and mains
which were laid by Expcs'tion engineers
to Forve the concessionaires and exhibitors
In the various liuilllngs.
With these pipes of the Exposition Com
pany is connected a twenty-inch main of
the Laclede Gas Light Compiny. which
runs to within a few feet of tho grounds
It Is estimated that this size pipe will be
sufficient to serve the gas engines and the
exh'bltors, many of whom will use gas In
booths of. tho Exposition palaces.
Every precaution is being taken to In
sure the buildings against fire and a corp"
of Inspectors from both the Fire Preven
tion Bureau and the Exposition Company
examine each installat'on of gas pipes
and the location of each meter.
