Miss Vella Martin of Springfield, in
spector for the state charities commis
sion, swooped down on local keepers of !
jails and charitable institutions Mon
day, and Bince that time has been busy
at her work. Until this morning Miss
j Martin has been rather secretive and
: has evaded any intention of her pres

This is the scond official visit which
she has made in Rock Island county.
Last July she investigated conditions
in the county jail, and it will be re
membered that her report favored the
razing of th old building and the erec
tion of a new one because of the un
sanitary conditions prevailing there.
The report was published, and since
that time each grand jury has reported
that 6teps should be taken at once to
relieve those conditions. But things
have stopped with the reports, as the
board of supervisors . has been un
willing to incur the expense.
FINDS BETTER CONDITIONS.
Miss Martin stated to an Argus rep-
j resentative this morning that she had
found conditions in the jail much the
same as last year, but that the officials
were doing all in their power to pro
mote sanitary living. She is confident
that nothing more can be done to rid
the jail of the vermin and rodentb
which infest the walls and halls and
torment prisoners, unless a new build
ing is erected. The sheriff's deputies
and the keepers have whitewashed the
jail walls and sprayed them, and, con
sidering the conditions, things are in
fairly good shape.
While certain that eventually a new
jail must be built. Miss Martin does

present it consists of two tumble-down

an easy matter for the inmates to con

Miss Martin's suggestion is to utilize
the old storeroom on the first floor for
keeping the hoys and to turn the pres
ent boys quarters into additional space
for the other prisoners.
INSPECTS OTHER PLACES.
In addition to inspecting the jail. Miss
Martin has also made an investigation
of the "open air relief" movement,
which is under the guidance and direc
tion of Visiting Nurse Margaret Giles
and Police Matron Dina Ramser. As
in all other things, the inspector is ret
icent in divulging the results of these
investigations. She intends making a
report as soon as possible, and then
the result will be printed in pamphlet
form. It is safe to say that the report
will speak favorably of -the movement

attach themselves to the fins and other
hard external parts of fish. Other
kinds of baby clams have no sncb
hooks and they are forced to attach
themselves to the soft gills of fishes.
Most of the commercially valuable
clams belong to this class. Every In
fant clam that does not become attach
ed to a fleh Is doomed to perish, and
it is doubtful whether in nature more
than one In 100 or one In 1,000 have
the luck to hook a fish.
THE FISH DON'T LIKE IT.
Fish do not like to be infected with
clams and no doubt avoid, as far as
they can, those places where the clam
brood is thick. When their gills get
badly Infested they breathe very fast
and get restless and uncomfortable
like a dog whose life is made miser
able by too many fleas. Some fish
take the clam infection very readily
and some are almost immune; soma
are good hosts and some are poot
hosts for the orphan clams
Bullheads are almost immune, for
some reason the clams are not abl
to take a hold of their gills. The Ger
man carp is easily Infected, but for
some unknown reason the baby clams
cannot maintain their hold on its gills
and soon drop off and perish. Rock j
bass, large and small mouthed bass,
the green sunfish and the red-potted
sunfish are good clam nurses, and a
five Inch fish of any these kinds can
nurse 1,000 clams through the perto'l
of helplessness without harm to itself.
Crorples, blue-gill sunfish and yellow
perch readily take the clam infection,
but easily die ofs over Infection.
THE (liM'l CRADLE.
When the clam has attached Itself,
a sort of cyst or pimple, formed of
the tissue of the fish, quickly grows ,
around the uninvited little guest, so
that within a period varying from
three to 24 bours, the tiny clam is i
we know is that nature has ordained
that no clam shal live unless it first
becomes the papoose of some fish.
WHEN THE CRADLE IS EMPTIED.
After a period varying from about
one month to four months, according
to the season and the kind of clam,
the papoose carrier opens and the lit
tle clam drops out. It has not grown
much, but it has obeyed the law, and
can now live and settle on the bot
tom like other clams; and, if no ac
cident befalls it, its shell In the course
of years will be thick enough for the
pearl factory and sharp enough to split
a boy's toe.
TheBe and many other things the
scientific doctors have discovered about
the clam. They have also learned that
it is useless to forbid clam fishing at
any time of the year, because one or
more kinds of clams are breeding prac
tically every month of the year.
WILL VACINATE FISH WITH CLAMS.
The doctors fairly well understand
the case now. and are ready to pre
scribe. In suitable ponds and aquaria
they have infected at one time as
many as 25,000 fish with millions of
young clams. Such experiments have
been carried on in Wisconsin, in Iowa,
in Missouri and other states. In the
near future hundreds of thousands of i
fish will be vaccinated, so to speak,
with clam germs, and will then bo
turned loose to replenish the exhausted
clam beds and to plant new ones.
The fish will not like it. Having
never done anything since the time of
creation but loaf and tantalize the des
cendents of Sir Izaac Walton, the out
look for them Is rather dreary. Who
would have thought that a part of the
white man's burden would be shifted
to the fish in the streams? But tho
pearl men are smiling now, and the
languishing industry will surely recov
er, and, maybe, larger pearl buttons
will soon be the fashion.
