"It looks like a clean sweep in
November," said Mr. Aswell.
Everywhere I have gone I have

Wilson sentiment. There is no f

l~ltsor South Dakota: both 1

Democratic column." r

New Orleans, La., Oct. 27.- 1,
Relatives and friends hurriedl
to the bedside of Peter Banville d
yesterday morning as he lay in a
the Charity Hospital, to which c
he had been taken from the oper- I
ating room, after he had muffled I
his cries so his mother could not a
hear them as she waited in the d
outer corridor while doctors t
sought to bind his torn mangled t
limbs overwhich the wheels of a 1
freight car had passed, partially
serving both legs. (
Gray of . face and apparently (
suffering intensely from his hor-"
rible wounds, Banville bore up <
throughout the day. His wife, a
his sisters and his brothers and
*ascore or more of his relatives
and friends sat or stood around I
his bed, hoping for the best,
hoping that the man woiuld rally 1

Diptheria From Poultry.
New Orlesans, L., Oct. 28.- -
To Editor of Times'Democrat:
Have read a great deal in your
valuable paper about diptherla
and its causes. Everything is
blamed on the milkman, and c
sometimes the blame is put on H
the people that don't clean up
their premises. Here is my
side of diptheria questions, hav
ing fought this disease on Ihrv
eral occasions. I am the father a
of eight living children. I -had a
two children so*ie years ago
that had a severe: case of this
prevailing disease. I now tate
that this diseas comes from et
poultry, especialll at this time of ea
the year. Most all chickens' are
suffering from calker also roup
and chickenpox. Js
When my children took sick l
with diptherli I found out that o
in my henhouse I six cases ui
of the disease metioned above.
As a matter of fact, I traveled A
something like twenty miles a
day through this reat irettopo. cC
lis of the South, and I took par- a
ticular noti about diptberia I
cases and how they are sltoiled. 1i1
On Sunday morning, .1 St.
Michael's Church, a great' mpany
people were attending the Buna
day morning maP. I had the
ocession to stop, sud inn Annaun

right opposite the square, t 914

is prevailing. People her. have
