HOW TO ECONOMIZE.
OME men economize so closely on the
number of words in a telegram that the
receiver can not understand it. This is not
sensible economy. Neither is it sensible
economy to ruin garments of value with cheap
soap or powerful chemicals that eat into the fabric
True economy uses Ivory Soap in the laundry.
It is the most of pure soap that can be sold for the
money. Chemically it is as innocent as water. Yet
it does everything you can ask of a soap. Try it !

C05TEST DEVILOPS BUEPllISrS
High School Boys Make Plucky
Fight Against Odds Other
Saturday's football gaino between
tho alumni and high school teams at
the Twelfth street park developed
some surprises. Not that the result,
which was a victory for the former by
a score of 11 to 0, was nncxpacted by
thoso who were familiar with the
makeup of tbo two teams, for the odds
were against the high school. Bat
the style cf play resorted to on both
sides and tbo manner in which the
older players held their wind were
the subjects of much comment among
the witnesses of tho game.
The alumni team outweighed the
high school boys about 12 pounds per
man. Their lack of work in the field,
it was MipposoJ. would operate
against end piajs on their part, whil
their lighter antagonists would tind
cud runi a generally effective means
of gaining ground. The high school,
however, had little opportunity to try
side pi its for they were forced mom
of the time to put up a defensive
game. The alumni btcks got around
the line ovcral time for good runs,
and their weight gave them the abili
ty to brenk through tho line nr work
heavy plays at will. The high school
boys fought heroically to the end in
spite of disheartening odds and twice
naved their goal by desperate work
when it was in imminent danger.
There was a nica crowd on the field
when tho game started at 3:30. High
school "rooters," of course, predomi
nated. The section cf the bleachers
reserved for tho alnmni at the north
end and that for tha high school at
'he south were elaborately bedecked
in the appropriate colors. The school
children and students generally wero
very enthusiastic at the beginning c f
the game, but when it became appa
rent that tho lighter men coild not
score except through accident, the
crowd became still and the alumni at
the close were not disposed to exult
ondly over the victory.
The alumni kicked off in tho begin
ning, and after sofToring tho high
tchool to make good gains held for
downs. Then tne ball was pushed
oack tteadily to the high school's
goal, Dack linally la caking through
the line for a touch-down. Tho goal

and although the rigstin was curried

last part of the game the ball wm on
the high school's 15-yard line when
the big fellows were held for downs
and. although the high school men
fumbled ana brely recovered the bill
before it rolled over the line, they
punted on the next play and put it
out far euough so that the possibility
of another score was averted.

THE SCARLET FLVER:
CAUSES OF ITS SPREAD.
la speaking of tho largo number of
casts of scarlet fever in Central Illi
nois just now a prominent physician
made ti e following statements:
"There have been leported duiing
the last month about 15 cases of scar
let fever in Decatur and many of
these give a clear history of exposure
to other cases.
"The public schools are the hotbeds
for the propagation and spread of the
disease. This is largely the fault of
tho attending physicians who are
often pressed by th patents to issue
certificates of recovery so that the
child may re. urn to school. No
child Bhould be allowed to mix with
other children for-six weeks after the
onset of the disease, and if at that
time they have not finished peeling
or have any catarrhal affection cf the
car, in rout, or nose following the dis
ease, they sooutd bo kept isolated till
the cessation of these symptoms.
"A scaool teacher in Docatur stated
the other day that one of her pupils,
wto had just returned to school with
a certificate that she had recovered
from scarlet fever, picked large shreds
of skin from her lingers in the school
room Ida child was capable oi
transmitting the disease to her mates
and should bavo been kept at home.
"Another danger lies in the fact
that many people think that scarlet
rash is not scarlet fever. Scarlet
rash, scarlatina and scarlet fever are
identical diseases varying only in
grade and the most sevoie form of
scarlet fever may be contracted from
a mild case of Ecsrlet lash.
The average mortality of scarlet
fever in all forms and at all ages is
-5 per cent and under 5 years the
mortality is greatly increased. Sec
ond attacks are not unknown and Dr.
Kinniciut, of tho children's hospital
in New York, reporis the case of a
little girl who had three well marked
attacks within a period of two years.
In this hospital and in many others
the practice of adhering to a milk
diet lor some time after apparent full
recovery has caused a maraud diminu
tion in the number of c e which
have shown kidney complications
cither with or wiiht ut dropsy.
Library books are another com
mon agent in tho spread of the dis
ease, and the local board of health rt -ct-ntly
recommended that incisures be
taken for the disinfection of all books
woieo may have been in the same
house with a case of scarlet fevor.
'It is little surprising that pDople
treat the uiitter of exposure to si-ar-!
t fever to casually when one notes
th fact that the fifteen or sixteen
Ci'Oiof t in illpox which occurred in
the city uurirg the past ' twelve
month, without a tleath, were ctre
fully isolated and a quarantine against
them strictly enforced until all possi
ble daoger of contagion was past
Both diphthcriar and scarlet fvor
are as contagious and much more
dangerous both in their course and in
their after effects than smallpox as it
has occurred in this vicinity, but
people in general disregard the dan
ger from the two former, whilo an
armel guard is established if neeet.
