IN - THE CIRCUIT -COURT:

In the circuit court, before Judge
Gest, the case of Ranson against The
Argus is still occupying attention.
Tbe main portion of tbe time the past
two days has been consumed in the
arguments of -opposing counsel on
points of law. The plaintiff was on
the stand yesterday afternoon, and
the burden of bis testimony was to
show the extent to which he was
affected by the publication compUined
of. With the testimony of this wit
ness the plaintiff rested at the
r sing of the couri ' last even
iug. The case on the part
of the defense was opened oh the con
vening of court i this morning, tbe
endeavor being to show the circum
stances under which the item com
plained of was printed, tbe fact that
it was published in good faith, as an
extraordinary event of the fall elec
tion of a year ago. and that it was in
no sense attended bv the element of
malice toward the plaintiff.

journed umil 8:30 tomorrow morning
in order that time might be had to

TO PBEVEIIT TYPHOID,'
Words of Advice From Health
Commissioner C. C. . .
ALL WATER SHOULD BE BOILED.
Part Water and Milk More Important
Than All Else Sanitary Escalations and
Cnre In Attending; to Patients Inapossl-
- ble to Protect Streams Flowing; Through
Populous Valleys, as the Mississippi.
In view of the existence of typhoid
fever in Rock Island, as in other cities
in the Mississippi valley.. The Argus
requested Dr. G G. Cra'g, Jr., tbe
health commissioner, to give, for pub
lication, some words of advice that
might prove helpful in preventing
the further spread of the disease.
Pure water and milk." says the
doctor, "are more important than all
the rst put together." He advises that
tbe water be boiled SO minutes before
using, and that the milk be also boiled
or pasteurized. Raw vegetables for
table use should also be washed in
pure water. Tbe doctor suggests fur
ther: "Sanitary Plumbing No sewer
gas, good drainage, proper closets,
burn garbage, keep premises clean,
plumbing inspector is at your service;
notify health department.
Care in. Attending Patient Learn
how to take precautions from the at
tending physician; heed them to the
letter; disinfect kill germs.
"A pure drinking water is essentixl
An artesiaa well is safe it properly
constructed so as to allow no contami
nation (as through faulty piping in
the shaft). It is practic illy impossi
ble to protect streams which flow
thiough populous valleys, as the Mis
sissippi, receiving sewage of otner
towns and villges above us, or to
prevent ordinary wells from becoming
contaminated from soakage. There
fore such wells should be abandoned
and filled with earth or ai-hes, and the
river water shon d be boiled be'ore
iiting for drirAing. Water blteied
and then boiled is t-till better, filter
ing alone will not mfiice. Water dls
tiJled into sterilized bottles and prop
erly kept is safe.
In Regard to Milk.
"Milk has been known to transmit
typhoid, the germs not getting into
tne milk from the cows, but from tne
waver used in cleaning milk cans.
The germs prosper in the milk and
do not change its appearance.
Food as celery, salads, etc , may
become contaminated in their prepa
ration for the table, and ojsters may
become infected if their feeding
ground is defiled.
"The best authorities say that ty
phoid fever cmnot come from sewer
gas, or improper plumbing or decay
iug matter, alone the 'rms of ty
phoid must be there also, in order
that typhoid be caused by it, but if
one is exposed to sewer gas, filth, etc
his system is less able to combat dis-
disease, and he is, of course, more
susceptible to typhoid fever.
"Typhoid is only rarely due to
cau-.es other than drinking water,
as by milk, food, transmission
through the air, Hies and other in
sects, and if every one would drink
pure water, we would not have much
respect for typhoid.
Prevent the spread of the disease
bv immediate and thorough disinfec
tion of the stools and urine, and the
handling of the patient's clothing and
bedding. Disinfectants should be kept
in a place bv themselves and labelled
"poison." On the recovery of the
patient wash the bedstead and furni
ture witn antiseptic solution, noil
towels, bedding, etc.. and air the sick
room daily for several days before it
is again occupied.
LEAGUE OUTLOOK BRIGHT.
President Blckey Talks of the Western
President T. J. Hickey, of the West
ern Baseball association, was in Des
Moines yesterday. He said:
Prospects are excellent for organ

other strong cities. Pueblo, Cedar
