Many clothing manufacturers use good materials and do honest
work, but they lack the "know-how" necessary to design a properly
shaped and perfect-fitting garment.
The great organization cf L. Adler, Bros. &. Co. lacks nothing in
brains, skill or money to produce ready-to-wear clothing that is the
peer cf the best made-to-measure. Made in enormous quantities, it is
possible to retail their goods at half prices of equally good made-to-order.

BOARD HEALTH ACTS
Medical Societies Invited
Cooperate in Preven
United effort has been started by the
Illinois state board of health and the
three most prominent medical societies
of the state in a war against consump
tion and kindred diseases in the state.
Circulars are being issued by the state
board, by the Illinois State Medical
society, the Illinois State Homeopathic
-octet y and the Illinois State Eclectic
society calling the attention of citizens
to the situation.
All of The circulars advocate the pre
vention of the disease by means of
rules preventing spitting in public
places. Steps toward a state hospital
for consumptives are also advocated.
At the same time the physicians offer
their services for lectures, newspaper
articles and other means to tell of the
disease and how to stop it.
The following are some of the impor
tant extracts from a pamphlet being is
sued by the state board of health,
through George V. Webster, the presi
dent, and James A. Egan, the secre
tary. This circular will be sent by
the state board from Springfield to
any requesting it. and gives much val
uable information in regard to the
"white plague" and how to fight it.
From the circular are taken the fol
;-rin ICsi.Ht by Million.
"The chief mode of communication
of consumption is from the dried
sputum of consumptives. The germs
of consumption, which are the cause of
the disease, exist by the million in the
sputum which may be hawked or
coughed up and cast upon the side
walk, the floors of public halls, work
shops, and all public buildings, or upon
the floors or carpets in dwellings; in
fact, any place where the consumptive
chooses to spit.
"When the sputum becomes dried
up, ihe germs which it contains in
'normous numbers, mingle with the
air and dust of the building and may
be breathed into the lungs and thus
infect susceptible persons, one con
sumptive spreading the disease to
many others. The danger is increased
by the great vitality of the germs which
exists for n long time after drying and
mixed with t!ie dust.
'The minute drops of the sputum
which consumptives expel when cough
ing are also a source of communica
tion. Mrn:icp lo l.lim of Othrrn.
"It will thus be seen that the con
sumptive who is ablt to be about and
goes from place to place and spits on
sidewalk, in the street, cars or on the
floors of public buil lings, the work
shop and the like, may be a far greater
menace to to the lives of others than
the consumptive who is confined to
"The sputum should be destroyed.
The most certain method of prevent
ing the infection of consumption is the
destruction of the sputum of the con
sumptive. Not only the safety of the
people, but the safety of the patient
himself requires that the sputum be de
stroyed before it can have an oppor
tunity to become dried and mingle
with the dust of dwelling, office, fac
tories and ether places where human
"The consumptive should not spit
on the sidewalk or the floor of any
building or t-treet car or other public
conveyance. If he fails to comply
with this injunction he menaces the
lives and health of others. He can.
with comparative safety to the public,
spit in gutters, especially those con
taining water, or in the openings of
sewers, also into spittoons containing
Spit in (uttrrn.
"Don't spit on the sidewalk", on the
floor of any building, street car or oth
er public conveyance where the sputum
.v ill become dry and permit the dis
semination of the germs which it may
contain. When you must spit, do so
in a gutter, especially one containing
water, in the opening of a sewer, or
in a spittoon. Set a good example for
'he consumptives, and thus contribute
owards the saving of many lives, in
cluding, perchance, your own."

ASSAULT IS CHARGED
First of Two Indictments
Standing Against Henry
Henry Von Zeveren was placed on
trial before a jury in the circuit court
this morning on an indictment charg
ing him with an assault with a deadly
weapon upon the person of Emil Von
Mortel. There were two indictments
returned against Von Zeveren by the
September grand jury. The other is
for an assault upon Felix Toghon.
The case was aired exhaustively in
the police court three months ago.
Von Zeveren. it seemed, was extreme
ly jealous of his wile, who is many
years his junior. She was an acquaint
ance of Toghon in Helgium. Toghon
came to this country some years after
she did and. learning that she was a
resident of Rock Island, drifted to this
city, and became a regular caller at
her home. Mrs. Von Zeveren is an at
tractive young woman.
Toghon was a boarder at the home
of Emil Von Mortel on Twenty-sixth
street. On the night of the trouble
Von Zeveren and his wife had a quar
rel. She ran to the Van Mortel home,
and was followed there shortly after
ward by her husband. Ret ween S and
! o'clock Toghon came in. He had
been out with his tritnds and had had
Our Hullrt lilt Itoth Men.
Words passed between Van Zeveren
and Toghon. According to the testi
mony at the hearing in the police court
Van Zeveren invited Toghon into the
yard for a settlement of their differ
ences. Toghon accompanied him. Von
Mortel, expecting a fight, followed to
prevent, if possible. Von Zeveren, ac
cording to the testimony, drew a re
volver, and pointed it at Toghon. Roth
men grappled with him in an effort to
take the pistol away from him. In the
struggle the revolver was discharged
the bullet hilling the arms of both
Toghon and Von Mortel. There was
only one shot fired.
