It is 'expected that there will be at
least 30,000 troops in the inaugural
parade. There will be several regi
ments of regulars, but the bulk of the
soldiery will represent the national
guard, of which Pennsylvania will send
at least 7000. making an imposing dis
play in bluish-gray uniforms. The
troops will march in the order of the
states as the latter were admitted to
the union. There will be large bodies
of marines and bluejackets from the
fleet, the latter always awakening
much patriotic applause. The govern
ors of many states will take part in
the procession, surrounded by their
brilliantly uniformed staffs, on horse
back. But the utmost enthusiasm on
the part of the populace is sure to be
aroused by the two brigades of cadets
and midshipmen from "West Point and
Annapolis the flower of the youth of
the land and the future officers of the
army and navy.
At five minutes before 10 oclock on
the morning of March 4, Mr. Wilson
will arrive in a closed carriage at the
white house, accompanied by the vice
president elect. There they will be
received in the Blue room by Mr. Taft,

By half past 10 the start will be
made. The first carriage, of course,
will be occupied by the president elect
and the outgoing president. Mr. Taft
will sit on the right of the vehicle,
according to invariable custom. He is
still the president But on the way
back from the capitol, being only a
private citizen, he will sit on the left,
and Mr- Wilson will take the place
previously occupied by him.
The president's carriage will be
drawn by four horses. Faemg Ir.
Taft and Mr Wilson will be two mem
bers of the senate committee, probably,
the third member occupying the next
carriage with the incoming vice pres

spect are not subject to any very defi
nite rule. At all events, on arriving
(under escort bv the military) at the
senate wing of the capitol the presiden

and conducted to the vice president's
Mr Taft, however, will go to tne
president's room (at the other end cf
the corridor, which separates the sen
ate chamber from the Marble room),
there to seat himself at a table and
perform the last duties of his adminis

bills which have been passed in the
last moment and which, lacking his
signature, would fail to become laws.

Before the noon hour actually ar

senate chamber will be pushed back by
the doorkeeper with a long pole, so as
to "ain a few fictional, but important

filled with privileged spectators, eager

attractive color to the spectacle.

main door, under the clock, and walks
down the center aisle, seating himself
in a big leather covered chair In front
of the vice president's desk and on the
right hand side thereof.
The doorkeeper next announces the

kiosk he stands, looking down upon an
immense sea of upturned faces, while

this was what Lincoln did. Maj. Kich

day, and Mr Lincoln had driven from
the white house, as he said, to "get the
hang of things for the 4th of March."
He remarked that the unfinished sen

Maj. Richards took him in to see the
sergeant at arms, who suggested a tem
porary wooden railing. But Mr. Lin
coln did not think that it would be
safe, and directed that the doors lead

closed on inauguration day. "On that
very day," says Maj Richards, "while
jlr. Lincoln "was so solicitous about the
safety of others, Wilkes Booth was in
the corridors of the capitol seeking an
I opportunity to assassinate him."

Prepared by Indiana Health Board.
(Medical Freedom, New York-)
This month we wish to notice a typical example of the
evil results of wide publicity given by newspapers to reports
of Dr. Wiley's statements in regard to diphtheria in Indiana.
Any statement made by Dr. Wiley is liable to be accepted
by the general reader without attempting to verify its ac
curacy, and therefore if is greatly to be regretted when the
public at large is misled by statements such as those at
tributed to Dr. Wiley in his address delivered at Dayton,
Ohio, on October 29th, under the auspices of St. Mary's
College and the Knights of Columbus. In this address, as
reported in the Dayton papers, Dr. Wiley said:
Yon are suffering under the scourge of diphtheria. Whenever any!
body dies of diphtheria there is always somebody to bhwne. In the
State of Indiana ve don't allow that kind of carelessness any more,
and we have had hardly a death from diphtheria in four years ....
In Indiana, Dr. Perrv, with an appropriation of $186,000, has done won
derful work. He has stamped out at least oe infectious disease, namely,
diphtheria. The State Board of Health keeps the County Health- Board
supplied at all times with serum, and as soon as a ease of diphtheria
appears, it is immediately stamped out. There has not been a death
from diphtheria in Indiana in the last four years.
On reading the above, Dr. William A. Gravett, Secre
tary of the Dayton District Osteopathic Society, haying
some doubts as to the accuracy of the statement regarding
the number of deaths from diphtheria in Indiana during the
past four years, wrote to the Indiana State Board of Healih
for their monthly bulletins which record the number and
cause of deaths, and on receiving the same, he published the
verbatim report from the bulletins of the past eight months,
which showed that from January firet to September first,
there had been 1 5 1 deaths from this disease.
On reading the report of Dr. Wiley's address, we felt
interested in glancing at some of the bulletins of the State
Board of Health of Indiana during the past four years, as
they relate to this disease which, according to Dr. Wiley,
has been stamped out by Dr. Perry and his one hundred
thousand dollar appropriation. We find, according to the
bulletins, that in 1 909 there were 338 deaths from diph
theria; in 1 91 1 there were 343 deaths from this disease. We
have no bulletins for the year 1910, but during the first six
months of the present year there were 1 1 6 deaths. Thus,
for the two and one-half years out of the past four for which
we have statistics, the aggregate number of deaths from diph
theria was 797. At this same rate (and there is no reason to
believe there is any marked deviation from the above figures
for the year and a half for which we have no data), the
number of deaths from diphtheria would amount to over
twelve hundred. And yet the thousands of readers of the
Dayton papers on October 30th were ,led to believe, from
the report of Dr. Wiley's address, that during the past four
years scarcely a death had occurred in Indiana from diph
theria, and that that disease had been practically stamped
out through Dr. Perry and his serum treatment.
It is precisely such misleading statements, scattered
broadcast and emanating from persons who are supposed to
be conscientious, careful and scientifically accurate, that are
responsible for most of the sentiment that exists at present in
favor of increasing the power of the place-hunting and
privilege-seeking doctors in national, State and municipal
government, ror the past ten years the country has been
flooded with just such misleading statements, upon which
j thoroughly fallacious argumeRts and unwarranted conclu-
jsions have been based.

their stomachs into cancers "when
