the passing .of senator bristow.
Joseun Ij. iJnsiow, of Kansas, -will not hi re-elect-oil
tactile United States Senate.
This is not new news, hut as Murk Twain said
when he referred to the death of the man Who in-
vj'Med the cuckoo clock, there's nothing else the
"jiiattcr with it.
Neither will Cole Uloase of South Carolina ho
elected to the United States Senate this year.
The fict that these gentlemen are mentioned in
the same connection is not necessarily conclusive
evidence that they are hotli alike. It would lie im-
possihle. perhaps, to find two of either of them in
this life who would entirely resemhle each other.
In the United States Senate liristow was never
anything except a misfit and Hlease would have
been even worse.
All agitator, within reasonable limits, is a pretty
good thing. A fellow who objects to most every
thing often develops evils and faults which need
to be eliminated, but a man who never sees good in
anything which he himself doesn't originate, and
who believes that all honesty and integrity, and
political wisdom reposes in his own being, is a
mighty good sort of a man to keep out of the leg
islative halls. Lexington Leader.
ONE OF THE "BLESSINGS".
It is announced that the revenues of the Govern
ment will fall short some $100,000,000, and that the
deficit will be made up by a stamp tax on beer,
whisk', leather and coffee. "We do not all drink
eer, whisky or even eoll'ee, but we all do use leath-
er for fool covering, and so the extra tax will fall
on the poor as well as the rich. This is. one of the
blessings (V) of Democratic Free-Trade. I?ownie

THE PRI0EWE PAY.
The account of the American Public for the
Fourth of July has been balanced for another year,
and the price, as usual, is heavy. Three little hoys
died from lockjaw as a result of Fourth of July
injuries; sixteen persons, mostly little girls and
small children,' were burned to death by tire from
fireworks; five persons were killed by firearms, six
by explosions of gun powder,, guns or torpedoes,
four by cannon and live died from blood poison re
sulting from injuries caused by fireworks. The
total number of deaths resulting from Fourlh of
July injuries, according o the twelfth annual re
port on this subject compiled by The Journal of the
American Medical Association, is forty and the
number injured is l,-l(i(i. making total of 1,50(1 aeci
dents resulting from the Fourth of July celebra
tions. Among those injured hut not killed, thirty
six were totally blinded, thirteen lost one eye each,
sixteen lost legs, arms or hands, and sixty-seven
lost one or more fingers. This record, which reads
like a report of a European baltlelield, is unfor
Innately not as good as- that of last year or the
year before. In IHlil only fhirly-two persons were
killed and 1.1JI1 injured, and in 1912, while forty
one persons weiy killed, only 1)17 were injured the
smallest numb(r reported in the past twelve years
Pennsylvania still leads all the other states, hav
ing had '187 Fourth of July injuries to her credit
this year, or over 25 per cent- of those in the entire
eountry of which 241, or about one-half, occurred
in Philadelphia. New York had 2.10 accidents, al
most double the number reported last year. Illi
nois reported ninety-five injured or more than
twice as many as last year, while Massachusetts
and Connecticut had respectfully eighty-seven and
seventy-seven eases the largest number since
1910. In Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio ami "Washi'iis
ton. Iho number has decreased to a marked extent.
During the twelve years in which these statistic?
have been collected, 42,78(5 persons nearly forty
three regiments have been injured through
Fourth of July accidents.

.WOMEN IN MEDICINEs
During the past year there were GUI women
studying medicine, or !) less than last year, a de
crease of 4S below 1912 and a decrease of 4!)'J
(44.1 per cent.) below 1901,-when 1,129 women stu
dents, the largest number, were reported. The
percentage of all medical students was (5.S, the
same as last year. There were 121 women grad
uates this year, or 3.4 per cent, of all graduates- Of
all the women matriculants. Pl.l (21.4 per cent.1
were in attendance at the two medical colleges l'oi
women, while the remaining 49fi (7S.G per cent.)
were matriculated in the Til coeducational colleges
From the two women's colleges there were 2."). or
20.7 percent, of all women graduates, while !)(.
or 79.I1 per cent., secured their degrees from coed
ucational colleges- These figures taken from the
annual report on Medical Education, issued by The
Journal of the American Medical Association show
that women are not going into the study of medi
cine to (lie extent that thev once did.
