Dr. Hugh Blair eJrigsbVs "History of |

"Ma*on said that there was not a

Virginia ratified the instrument a*
it came from the hands of Its ftarr.ers.

a eW.eou.uuo book.
There has Just been issued by the
State of Virginia a booklet of thirty
two pases that by conservative esti?
mate is worth $50.000.000 to the peo?
ple of the Commonwealth It is the
I Annual Virginia Health Almanac, pub?
lished by the State Hoard of Health. If
j the preventive measures suggested by
! the articles In this pamphlet were uni?
versally applied against the ravages
! of the principal oontaa'ous dlsesses, it
is no exaggeration to say that the
people of Virginia would save $50.000,
j 000 in the next live years. It is de?
clared that tfberculoeis alone cost the
city of Lynchburg about $857,000 Isst
year, on a population basis it probably
cost Richmond twice that amount, or
$700.000. That totals a waste of $!,
001,000 in just two cities for a single
disease Multiply this by the entire
State, and all the diseases that are
practically preventable, and no sane
I man will deny that $1 f'.aoo.oOO a year
! is paid for disease I'robably the an
I nual toll is nearer twice that sum.
How many miles of fine roads snd
! how many Improved schools would that
1 build in a year?
If- this tremendous price of disease
were unavoidable, or if the methods of
reducing it were difficult, technical
1 or costi>. there might he some excuse
for bearing the burden, but the dis- |
cushions of the almanac show that the
simplest and most inexpensive sani?
tary and hygienic precautions are suf- !
flrient to eliminate most of this crush?
ing tax If the first case of measles i
In Richmond had been isolated, the city
would have been saved perhaps $100.
The chief value of the almanac is
that it is simple und convincing. It
tells of the causes and preventive
measures for smallpox, tuberculosis,
malaria, diphtheria, pneumonia, hook?
worm, typhoid, infant troubles and I
measles, scarlet fever and whooping
cough It points out that a fee- ele?
mental things, if done properly, would |
wipe out most of these troubles. If
the cost of these diseases were elimi?

almost negligible Fresh -lr. clean
food, tincontaminated water, and pure i
milk and necessities. Human suste
Ranee must be germ proof. Proper sani- '
tation of farms and the careful disposal
of human waste are fundamental. The 1
destruction of the germ-carrying fly
and mosquito must be achieved. The

the control of infection centres com- j
plctcs the list.

Ol T Or THE DEPTHS.
(Selected for The Times-Dispatch)
"Out of the depths have I cried unto
Thee, o Lord.'1?Ps. caxx. L
This was th<-- sad cry of tiod's
people. Israel, out of the depths of
their captivity In Babylon. The people
for their s:ns had been led away cap?
tive, snd there was no man to pity
them. The walls of the city were
ferokesV the sepulchres of their father*
were In rums. So now by th.- waters
of Babylon they sat down and wept,
they could not sing the Lord's song
iu a strange land The Psslmlst, who
wrote our verse, remembers how often
Israel had sinned and forgotten the
great mercy of God. Tet. for all this,
he cries out of the deep of shame and
remorse. 'leord. hear my voice." for he
knows that w.th the Lord there is
And so through the darkness of the
night: in which Israel groped, the
Psalmist say*. "My soul waited for
the Lord. more than they wh'ch
watch for the morning." Te*. far

Rahylon, they looked for Him who
should come, for that Messiah who
should redeem Israel, and not l*ra<T

U Is quite safe to walk there. Then
suddenly h? makes a false step, and
the bog swallows him up. So we may
come to a sudden temptation in our
way, and we go on thinking we arc
I safe, and suddenly sink into the qulek
f sand of sin. The trsveler. when h
started from home, never ?xpected to
sink in the bog. Kve never expected
danger when she listened to the ser?
pent David meant no harm when he
looked at Bathsheba. St. reter waa
quite sure of himself when be boasted
of his fidelity. When we are quite
sure of ourselves we are most in dan?
ger, the pit is close to u*.
Brethren, do not trust in yourselves,
I In your own stre gth; do not count
f up your virtues, but look for the spots
I on the white robe. You know that
I you have sinned, that you have been
' down in the depths; then ory unto the
I Lord out of the depths of sin, and say.
! "Deliver me out of the ir.ire, that I
; sink not." Do not be afraid to cry,
' for with \he Lord there is mercy. He
j will deliver your eyes from tears and
; your feet from falling, out of the
I depths of sin cry unto the Lord.
Then there are times when all of
j us need to cry unto the Lord out of
j the depths of melancholy and dopre-s
j sion. For all of us there are days
when we are brought very low, down
<n the depths. Do wftat we may, we
cannot help feeling miserable. It
aeems as though the sun would never
?MS* again, the clouds return after
the rain. It seems as though Qod had
forgotten to be gracious; all the day?
long we moan in our prayer and are
vexed; in the night season wc take
no rest: look where we will, all seems
dark. The holiest of God's people feel
this at times. They try to believe that
it is all for the best; but their faith
is weak, and they cannot see the light
?all is dark. God has laid them in
the darkness and in the deep, and,
like Elijah, they cry; "Take away my
life, for I am not better than my
Ah, brethren, every true servant of
God knows that depth. What Fhall we
do, then, when the horror of th?- great
darkness falls upon us? Let us cry
unto the Lord. He brought us low
that He might lift us up; He puts
us tn the dark that we might turn to
the light. Out in the sunshine we
trusted In ours' Ives. *rTd thought we
should never be moved fjod turned
away His fact- and we were troubled,
down In tbe depths w-e learnpd our
weakness, and we cried: "Lord, save
me: I perish." Oftentimes in the deep?
est pit of despondency we find the
precious Jewel of faith.
Then th-:re are times when we all
cry unto the Lord out of the depths
of sorrow. Sooner or later the dark
messenger stops at every door, and
crosses every threshold. Sometimes
out of the depths of our sorrow we
murmur and complain. Who arc- we
to question the Almighty? He is
th? potter who forms the clay Intoi
the right snap.; He puts us through
the fire ot trouble that He may bend
and mold us. God takes away. He;
bereaves us, removes our money, or|
our friends,'or our home, to open ourj
eyes, to make us see < Iesrer, to t-ach
us to look up to God. A man at the
bottom of a pit can only see God's,
heaven above Mm. so God sometimes
casts us into the deep of sorrow- that,
wi may look up ar.d seek those things
that are above.
Again, there are times when wc have j
to cry unto the Lord out of the depths ,
of illneaa. It is a weary depth. Yet j
God's servants learn to cry out ofj
that depth. Illness is a waiting work. I
and In the hours of sickness we ought
|a wait for the Lord. The Psalmist f
said; "My soil waiteth for the Lord
more than they which watch for the
morning." So when the trisl lime
of sickness comes to us. we- should
wait and watch for the Lord, and cry
to Him for light, for comfort, for ,
patience, for resignation?and we shall
not cry In vain:
Lastly, w- must all come to the j
depth of death. If w? have cried!
unto the Lord throughout our life, we !
shall know how to cry out to Him in ,
death. We shall ask Ulm who has j
led us all these years to guide us j
through the last depth of all. We
shall trust J'sus. M'n talk of going
down to the darkness of death. It is'
not dsrk to Go's servsnt. The world
grows dark. hut Paradise grows
brighter, and we say. 'Let me go. for
the day br?aketh.
