been able to sell to the Colored busi

NINETEEN MTT.T.TONS SPENT IN
Big Increase 6ver 1911 New York
Nearly $19,000,000 was spent in the
anti-tuberculosis campaign .in the Unit
ed States during the year 1912, accord
ing to the fourth annual statistical
statement of expenditures in this
movement issued by the National Asso
ciation for the Study and Prevention
of Tuberculosis today. These annual
statements ore based largely on reports
received from anti-tuberculosis agen
cies throughout the country. Tho fig
ures are estimated where actual re
ports are not available.
The expenditures during the year for
sanatorium and hospital construction
and treatment make the largest single
item in the total, amounting to nearly
$16,800,000. This is an increase of
nearly $5,000,000 over the same group
of expenditures for tho year 1911. The
anti-tuberculosis associations and com
mittees spent over $765,000, while dis
pensaries and tuberculosis clinics spent
over $500,000. Over $115,000 was spent
for the maintenance and establishment
of open-air schools and fresh air classes,
which is more than double tho amount
spent for this purpose in 1911. Offi
cial, state and municipal expenditures
outside of the maintenance of institu
tions, which are included in the other
totals, amounted to $280,000. In addi
tion to these .figures, about $500,000
was spent by hpspitals for insane and
penal institutions in caring for their
The total expenditures for tho year
1912 are 29 per cent.,' or nearly $4,500,
000 greater than the total for tho year
1911. Another significant feature
pointed out by the National Association
is the expenditure of public money.
During the year 1912, 65.6 ,per cent,
of the $18,900,000 spent in tuberculosis
work come from cither federal, state,
county or municipal funds. This fig
ure is considered by the anti-tuberculosis
workers as particularly signifi
cant because it indicates the shifting
of responsibility for tho provision of
tuberculosis hospitals and other insti
tutions upon tho municipality, county
New York State again leads the
country in its anti-tuberculosis ex
penditures. Pennsylvania comes next
and Massachusetts .and Colorado are
in third and fourth places, respectively.

of musical comedy distinction, is her
alded for appearance at the Globe the
atre for one week starting next Sunday
matinee, January 5. .
t With a jew posslblo slight exceptions
this amiable theatrical topic may well
be considered the nearest approach to
a genuine Colored comedy cyclone of
Southern pastimes and natural cut-ups
of adept performers of ebony hue ever
staged for public appearanco.
Through a process of elimination all
serious thought is transposed into an
evening's enjoyment of amusing ab
surdities, which leaves the audience
with a smilo and. a .laugh as they say
good night. The public inclination .and
desire for a production of this kind
has prevailed upon the management the
sense of offering this Colored show' at
popular prices j 25, 50 and 75 cents
