EPILEPSY DISCUSSED IN
STATE CHARITIES REPORT
The quarterly bulletin issued by the
state board of charities pays special
attention to pilepsv in Illinois. The
following is taken from the report:
"In November. 1903, we sent a com
munication to every physician in the
state, asking each to show on return
blank, al! cases of epilepsy of which
he had knowledge together with the
age and sex of each case.
"The response was not as general
;k we hoped for. although the data
obtained was quite satisfactory and
probably included 73 per - 11 1 or more
of the epileptics of the state.
Replies were received from 1,029
physicians, of which 7ti were from
the state at larpe. and 80S from Cook
county. Of the total number. 199 re
ported 011 cases, and more of these
physicians said there ware no cases in
"We hop,- to have our efforts supple
mented by a similar effort this uar on
the part of the state board of health
to secure complete data on this sub

WILL EXHIBIT THE OLDEST
PLOW ON THIS CONTINENT
Theodore PMcock, a fa rmi r of
Washington township. N. .!.. has just
come into possession f what he says
is the oldest plow in America. He is
negotiating to place it on exhibition
at the world's fair in St. Louis. Ac
cording to tradition the plow is '-'.'iO
years old, having been brought over
by the Dutch to New Ansterdam in
1854. It remained in one family, that
of the Terriberrys. of Sehooleys
Mountain, ft r ver "ihi years, and then
was purchased at an auction sale by
Jonathan Pklcock, father of the pres
ent ow hit.
This, they say. aas the plow which
was used in breaking the gronnfl for
the famous Racket tstown-German
Valley turnpike, over which the revo
lutionary forces drew their cannon
after the battle of Trenton, and when
they were on their way to the defense
of the famous Jockey Hollow road.
It is built on the same principle as
plows of today, except it has a wooden
mold board and a wrought iron share.
All the nuts have tail burrs on them
for tightening ami loosening with a
hammer, for in the old days there
were no wrenches. There is but one
handle, whicbait lo be held with the
left hand, the right hand guiding the
SPLENDID PARADE FEATURE
OF THE SINGLING CIRCUS
The circus parade has at last,
thanks to Ringling Brothers, reached
the dignity of good taste, instructive
feature, and discriminating approval.
This street display, peculiar to all
circuses, until Ringling Brothers cans
into the tii Id with fresh ideas, was a
rather stale parade, in which the taw
dry and unkempt laid heavy ami
gloomy hold of everybody ami every
thing. With the advent of this fam
ously successful circus firm came the
well groomed man ami horse, the
splendid chariot and cage of distin
guished style ami tasteful coloring,
the numerous open dens of the rarest
wild animals, the inventive and never
vulgar clown, squadrons of symmetri
cal equines of aristocratic breeding,
riders modishly dressed and erect with
the hall mark of culture, allegorical
wagons picturing historic persons and
scenes, bliputian cages and tableau
floats for children's eyes and hearts,
army types in companies and correct
ly uniformed ami equipped, elephants
strung out for a wide city block, and
numbering in or more, herd- of sleepy
eve.! came!.-, trained d mestic ani
mals, musical vehicles of different
kinds, the only cathedral pipe organ
the large.-t portable one ever made,
and used in a street pageant, a mount
ed band, and many other unique and
exclusive features, which separated
the Ringling Brothers' free circus pa
geant from all others, an I made it
the most fascinating event of each
vear. This season Ringling Brothers
street parade is longer than ever, and
more radiantly beautiful in costuming,
decorative cages and chariots, and
splendid exhibit of handsome wild
animals and shapely, highbred equines.
All of the L290 men. women and chil
dren employed with the enormous
vhovv- take some part in the pageant.
This procession leaves the show
ground at tn o'clock sharply, and fol
lows the usual route over the princi
pal streets in Davenport. Saturday,
