TURN DOWN CAMPAIGN LIES
Excited people often exaggerate. And excited people often nre
taken In and deceived.
The present political campaign is working some people up into n
frenzy, though a good many are keeping unusually quiet. 11)0 frenzied
ones will start various "Scares" juat before election. Let us not be
disturbed or led to lliink wrongly of any good man who is toiling in
tho Hold of politics.
Roosevelt did some things he should not have done and we regret
his present course, but we refuse to bclievo he has become a bad man.
Wo dnre not trust the combination in which we find Woodrow
Wilson, yet no will not give up our honest admiration of the man him.
Vm. II. Taft has fnllcd to accomplish all he desired for tho pub
lic good, but he has probably established as much of permanent good
as nny recent president, and he will do much wore in his second term.
Let us keep cool and turn down campaign lies.
WHAT THE INVOICE SHOWS
A very interesting bulletin has just been issued by the State
Hoard of Health treating most largely of hook worm in Kentucky.
We havo only had time to look over the introduction but gather from
it some significant facts:
Our Vital Statistics Lnw is being called "Kentucky's big family
Hiblo" because it contains tho records of all tho births and deaths as
well as the cause of the death. It is, therefore, the invoice book of
the health of tho people of the state and its showing is not a good
In the first place, in other states where such records are kept the
annual death rate from consumption per one hundred thousand peo
plo is not above 1G0, but in Kentucky last year it was 220. That is,
one fuuerul out of every six followed n case of consumption.
Again, the death rate from typhoid fever, according to (he Cen
sus Bureau, is 23 out of every one hundred thousand, but in Kentucky
it is -15.
These ns well as hook worm, are filth and, therefore, preventable
diseases, and death from either of there causes is unnecessary. And
tho Hoard of Health wisely askB, "What aro you going to do about it?
Are you willing, now that the facts are known, to let your own family,
your neighbors, your friends or merely your fellow citizens coutinue
to die prematurely from various germs or seed diseases which you
know how to prevent ?"
But do tho people know how to prevent them? Yes, by sanita
tion, that is, cleanliness; by drinking pure water, by eating whole
some food temperately, by breathing pure air, by proper bathing, prop
er exercise, the extermination of flies and quitting the spitting habit.
It looks too easy doesn't it? Most people prefer tho patent med
icine bottle because it costs money, and demands no effort. They
enjoy briny duped.
