A broad-minded clergyman in bis Tubercu-
oaia Day sermon propounded this question
,t and reached a conclusion decidedly negative.
'God docs not fix the death rate." Who does
; then? We all do.
V Those theologians aid high death-rates who
ignore the demonstrated facts .of preventable
'j disease and seek to porpotuate the medioval
superstition that infections aro the Almighty's
merited scourgo. Laymen who flout the
scientific proof that tuberculosis is curable and
can be eliminated from human experience, or
who disparage a tuborculosis propaganda as of
no personal concern to them, help to cause
the death of a consumptive every three minutes
in the United States. Councils and legislatures
which will not appropriate funds sufficient for
the fight which health boards would wage
against the Great White Plague are largely
responsible for the death of ten thousand a
year, twenty-seven deaths every day, in ono
city alone. Those who disregard anti-spitting
ordinances and the like help to send the death
rate upward. Housewives whose culinary
efforts produce dyspeptics directly and drunk
ards indirectly give far more- impetus to the
upward trend of the denth-rntc than most of
us imagine. Venders of 'patent medicines"
and consumption cures who fleece their victims
until the latter have passed far beyond the iu
cipient stage in which physicians could havo
helped them such nostrum-fakers have a full
share of responsibility for the thousauds on
thousands of deaths from tuberculosis through
out tho country. Those who draw profit from
feeding the poor on adulterated food, "rots
and, spots," jmd fowls dead in storage soveial
Wrs back, have a similar responsibility for a
A "league for medical freedom" organized
to prevent tho wise centralization and coordin
ation of health activities and to opposo tho
inspection of schools and schoolchildren like
wise helps to keep the death-rate high. Those
who overwork women and children in factories
w.ve a heavy share of responsibility for hold
ing "tho death-rate at a high level; so also do
those employers who require men to work at
dangerous trades uudor intolerable conditions,
such as thoso which iu some trades hold tho
consumptive-rate above SO per cent. House
owners who provide dark, insanitary, pest
liddeu tenements havo no little part in increas
ing the death-rate. The Christian Scientists
and other faith "healers'' who close their eyes
to the possibilities of material aid, that may
often so potently bo added to the psyschothcr
apy they aio omploying, swell tho death-rate.
.'- Well-meaning mothers, who believe that they
are able to bring up their children in dofiance
of tho new-fangled notions of hygiene spread
.by physicians and visiting nurses, help to keep
. tho death-rate high. Most important of all,
i.says Tho Journal of tho American Medical
, Association, incompetent and careless doctors
swell the death-rate. For these tho modical
jofession is directly responsible, whether they
are untrained raon turned out by low-grade
'-. , medical school?, or members of tho profession
who have failed to keep up with scioutiile
progress and who havo becomo incompetont
.through inertia aud laziness. All these, by
their carelessness, indifference and ignorance,
increase tho doath-rate, which corapetont and
conscientious physicians, sanitarians And re-

Wti Iavo not tho right to blame a cruol
doity for deaths which are actually duo to'class
stubborn ignorauco,inhumanity and tho refusal
to exercise tho "common souso which is also
an inspiration from tho Almighty." A weop
iug mother told a famous physician that it had
pleased Providonco to take her baby from her.
"Providouco had nothing to do with the mat
tor," replied tho physician; "it was bad milk
that killed your babj." We cannot escape
somo sharo of tho joint responsibility of fixing
the death-rate, but wo can choose to be ou the
side of tho forces that aro bringing it down
instoad of those that are sending it up'.

OTJ OUGHT TO HKAB TAP-
Responsibility for tho defeat of tho Repub
lican party at tho late election rests primarily
and principally upon Theodore Roosevelt.
When it refused to nominato him for a third
term ho turned upon it in a perfidious and
revengeful spirit, resolved to prevent its suc
cess as a penalty for not making him its can
didate. In all tho history of American poli
tics there is no parallel for this caso of amaz
ing egotism and flagrant ingratitude, and cot
tainly no true Republican can ever forgot or
condone it. Riploy Bee.
In a tributo to Marcus A. Hanna, delivored
in tho Senate April 7, 1904, former Senator
Albort J. Bevoridge said: "Conservatism
does not mean doubt or indecision. Conser
vatism moans clear common sense, which
equally rejects the fanaticism of precedent and
the fanaticism of change. It would not have
midnight last just because it exists and yet it
knows thatdawn comes not iu a flash, but gradu
ally comes with a grand and beautiful mod
eration. So the conservative is the real states
man." This does not sound like tho definition
of statesmanship ho gave iu Indiana during
tho recent campaign for the Governorship.

LARGE MAJORITY FOR PROTECTION.
Senator Burton, of Ohio, calls attention to
the fact that the popular majority-against Tar
iff reductiou is 1,000,000. That is,the combined
vote for the candidates opposed to the Demo
ciatic theory of Tariff for revenue only is 1,
000,000 greater than the Wilson vote. Wil
son polled considerably loss votes iu New
York and in other States than did Bryan in
1908, showing that tho election of Wilson is
not due to any change of opinion on the Tariff,
but to the fortuitous aid of Mr. Roosevelt.
Still, tho Free-Trade party will go ahead with
its destructive work, under the mistaken sup
position that the people oppose such a course.

They aro a very different aort from thote
enconnterod by Dinlel Doone when ho waa
blazing tbe way for civilization. In fact, they
aro much loes to be droaded and shunned than
the more peatlforoua variety of "Indians" with

Vinol For Run-Down People
If any one person should know the valuo of
mcdiolnoa it la tbo drupgist who dhpecses
them and from onr eiperieco we want to eay
if peoplo in this vicinity only knew the vlue
of Vinci, onr deliciom cod liver and iron tonic,
(rlthout oil) at this faon of the year, we
would not be ablo to supply tbe demand.
Tbia ia because Vinol Is a combination of
the two mast world famed tonics, namely, the
medicinal curative dements of cods' livers
without the oil, and iron for tbo blood.
Vinol tonea up the digestive organa, purifies
and enriches the blood, promotes healthful
sleep and a normal appetite.
Old people, delicate children, run-down,
overworked and tiredwomon thoald try a battle
of Vinol with the understanding that your
money will be retorntd if it does not help you.
