THE BATTLE AGAINST DEATH From Microbes.
In this country alone the "the great white pliue"--Consumption--lias in its death rip oik: half
million people. 3000 deaths every week in the United Mutes alone explains the mafnitude suffering,
sorrow and death caused alone by tubercle bacillus. This, my reader, concerns you. Von may think
yourself in (ood health but few, if any, escape the occasional inhalation or imbibition oftlteerms
ofttibcrculosis. If you have two children, there is more than .111 even chance that atjleast one oi tltetn
is infected with these aerms at the present moment. Hut until my readers, and people in l'curral,
are much more intelligently alive to their own interests, than they tire at present, tin- funeral car
will continue to call at the door Iiuiih with crepe. You or one of your faiiulv mav be the next one
to pay the penalty. Don't be tiovcrncd by what von can't understand, or bv the advice of voitr
friends who think they know. It requires years of hard study, to-jetlii r with actual rspeiieiue to
establish lacts. I his can only be accomplished by SPECIALIZING.
Consumption Cannot Be Cured

are far less momentous. Thus everyone read with horror a lew weeks ao that ten thousand Tilths
were reported to have fallen in a single li.tttle with the Itnli; tii.uu; tli. newspaper siMfc-hi-aded
the accounts from ocean to ocean. Hut no newspaper thought to mention that many times ten
thousand victims had fallen on the same day before nticiobic foes that are far more relentless tli.m
Turk or linear. Tin: toll of infant lives aloiie amounts to about .jo.000 daily one at every other
tick of the clock, as a sjieaker at the recent International Congress of Hygiene computed. I'or
the most part these infants are slaughtered, in the sense that they fall victims to prountahl'
diseases. Hut the tiling is too familiar to excite interest. It is hard to make a news item out ol
something that occurs every day.
It is perhaps not superfluous, then, to remind the reader that the vast majority of all deaths
are duo to the invasion of the human body by definite and tangible foes, which are no les real
because they are ol microscopic dimensions, The chief aim of niedicd science in our day is to
combat these microbes, either by preventing their access to the body, or by making the body
proof against them if they do find entrance.
What These Death -Producing Microbes Look Like.
There are some fifty different species or varieties causing Consumption, Catarrh, Pneumonia,
Diphtheria, Blood Poison, Typhoid and many other diseases. Some microbes look like tiny rods,
some like dots, and some like cork screws. The walls and barricades of the human fortress are, the
skins without and the mucous membranes within the cavities ol the body. The soldiers that stand
ready to attack the microbic invaders are the white blood-corpuscles, or leucocytes, that every
where swarm in the blood and lymph-channels. If you were to prick the tip of your linger with a
needle, and place the tiny droplet of blood on a microscope slide, you would see thousands of
these leucocytes distributed here and there in the blood, in the midst of the millions of red blood
corpuscles. You might recognize them at once by their relatively large size. I'Jtvy appear prac
tically colorless, like a drop of white of egg; but a visible nucleus shows that they have a definite
structure; and the way they move about, slowly changing shape and as it were flowing in one
direction or another, shows clefrYly that they are alive. It is a trifle disconcerting to observe that
there are thousands of these creatures in the tiniest drop of normal blood, Hut you owe not merely
health but life itself to them.
Millions of Live Germs
It would require 2000 germs ranged up in line to span the letter "o.
at in the last stage of Consumption that one germ would have multiplie
It has i,.-eii estimated

Does It Pay to Keep Your Blood Right?
So it is absolutely essential that the leucocytes, which constitute a standing army numbering
more than titty billion, in the blood-system of ever) human being, should at all times be posted in
numbers, behind every inch of the fortifying but not quite impregnable walls, It is essential also
that they should constitute a mobile army, capable of being copcenfrated at wy given point where
an attack of unusual virulence is sustained. The position of tho,lcueii'cytes as nonnally distributed
throughout the blood-stream enables them to fulfill these conditions5ideally. -They are always
present as a defending garrison about every cell of the entire hody;nnd when a localized attack of
microbes is reported, there is an instant reenforcemcnt.it that-pointfrom ncighboringblood-channcls,
