Medical Education.
The changes of the past 25 years
In medical education have been noth
ing short of a revolution, and yet at
a conference of medical educators in
Chicago it was stated by one delegate
that three-fourths of the graduates
were unfit to practice medicine. The 1
condition of medical education in this
S'intry 30 years ago was almost be
yond belief. There were medical col- 1
leges In Chicago that graduated two I
classes a year. In a single town in
northern Illinois nine nmn were prac- i
ticing medicine, of vhomln two had di
plomas and the rest were druggists, F
ex-hospital stewards front the army t
and men who had taken one course of
lectures. Th1'e inm diate result of the I
enactment of the medlcal practice act
was the departure of 1.10o practition- C
ers from the- state, some of whom com
pleted their medical stludies, but most
of then: practiedet where there was i
not so nmuch law. At a conference in h1
Chicago the other day. says the Phil- s
adelphia Record, Dr. Means, chairman e
of the judicial concinl of the Associa- d
tion of American Medical Colleges, V
said that the averauge man admitted to '
practice was deficient in knowledge o
of bacteriology, ('elc nistl'y, physiology it
and anatomyn . Fiftty-cioht )per cent. of
the men in 2, states who fail at their
final examllinai,,n pass a few weeks n

where do they get their knowledge? t<
They don't _et it." They simply learn n
the answers to the qulest ions, and the ((
same quest ions are asked thll at the 1i
re-examination. Evidently the reform li
of medical lucaltion, ailllhouh mullch O

Every man, woman and child should of
write poetry. It is like boils, it pre- OF

more poets there would be fewer crim

If he doesn't write it at some time or fill
another during his life watch out for on

th- The manufacturers of farming tools
and vehicles had a mooeeting recently,
in and the whole trend of the talk was
ate that prices must be advanced. Now,
tes it is the easiest thing in the worl( to
'he meet this advanoe, if the farmers
his would only do it. The way to do it is
be- to put every farming tool, every ve
:ol- hicle and every implement on the
wo place under shelter every night when
in at all practicablle, and never leave
ac anything out in the weather for a sin
di gle moment when it can be put Into a
d- lase of safety and protection. If the
;ts, farmers would do this, it would cut
yI the i demands for such things fully half
of in two. Would half of the ldemand
:he bring the price down'? You bet it
act wou ld. The facttories are naw running
on- over time, and lthel dealers are hardly
able to get stocked up at all. Cut the I
Ist demand in t(wo, and the factorics
would inmmediately seek a market, and
as the "overlprodluetion " of ctotton would
in have a parallel. At any rate, this
lil- sort of a thing on the p:rt of the farm

It is time that the Unions were ta
king some notice of the movement to
r fill the South with emigrants from all o
r over Eurote. and particularly from
Spain arnd Italy. This means the plant
ing of more cottotn and the constump
tion of no more cotton; the produc- su
tion of more food stuff, and the sale of
-less, to the Southern farmer. This is a
conlition that must be met, and right far

Providence, been reduced to something cha
Slike a money-making quantity. n
There must be warehouses, and the
farmer should own them. He has thee a t
cotton at first hand, it has cost him

therefore, hold it to better advantage not

tion needs to be discussed. It went 'I

The Farmers' Union should stand up hin
for the quality of stuff under the Farm- du
ers' Union label. Make it a guarantee ow]
of first quality, and it will need no eac
sort of 'boosting to keep the price
right. But don't amalgamate with fel
other orders.

Is interested in building and maintain

! A BILLION FOR EQUIPMENT.
Railroads Striving to Meet Demands
SMade Upon Them.
Chicaao.-Ameeriecan railways will
spend close to a hillion dollars in the
present year in an extraordlinary ef
0fort to secure equipment, power and
track, including new irad, to make iI
Spossible to hatanle the great amount
of traffic being off4.rcd to them.
If the car' and locomotive builders
and the steel railmalkers do their part
the year will be a record one in thc
three industries m4'ntitoned.
It is estimated that if the m tanufac
tureres are equal to tlle test, between
310.000 and 350.000 freight cars 'wi1
be added to the total equipment of the
railways of the United States, fully
5,000 passenger cars will be built and
more than 6,000 locomotives will be
added to the steam power which it
now available.
It Is estimated that the railroade
will pay full $92.000,000 for steel rail,
In the present year. If this prover
true the steel mills will have turned
oaout about 3,a00,000 tons of that prod
uct. The output last year was abou.
3ta/ million tons. It is said the west
era roads will use fully 1,600,000 tont
of rails and that nearly 1,000,000 tont
of this will be rolled in the easter n
mills.
HEALER LOOKS LIKE CHRIST.
American Millionaire Said to Be Pa.
tient of Mysterious Carpenter.
Erfuart, Germany.-Among the re h
cent patients of Ausmeter, a carpenter
of this town who claims to have mir.
aculous healing powers, is an Amer.
can millionaire, according to a local
newspaper, who has brought his fami a
ly with him to be cured of a heredi
tary ailment. The paper does not give -
the American's name and Ausmeler is
dumb on the subject.
Ausmeler is a remarkable looking
man, with a face and head strikingly
resembling those which Christian art
generally subscribes to Jesus Christ.
These are resemblances he has cul.
tivated to such an extent that people
who see him for the first time are said
to be struck with awe at the majesty
of his appearance.
He uses simple and harmless In.
gredients in his healing, maintaining
that it is not the medicine that cures
but the words he utters and the
prayers he offers. The remarkable
thing about it is that many cures have
been wrought and people from far and
near are streaming to him'for assist
ance. He has now taken to wearing
an oriental looking robe which he has
embroidered with curious cabalistic
signs.
