Things China Knew Long Ago.
There is a distinct tradition of tlyin
machines at a very remote date lu
China, according to the author of "The
Civilization of China." nnd rough wood
cuts of such cars have been handed
down for many centuries. There are
even bints of the X ruy. there being a
record of a physician of the fifth ceu
tury B. C. who was able to see Into the
viscera of his patients, while another
physician, who lived about 1.S0O years
ago, was accustomed to use au anaes
thetic and operated upon the bowels
and offered to cure the headaches of a
military commander of his day by
opening bis head. Hypnotism has beeu
used for hundreds of years, but is for
bidden by law. The ranks of the Box
ers were largely recruited from the so
ciety of the vegetarians, who neither
eat meat, smoke nor drink.
A short, sharp and vigorous city !
campaign for class adoption will be
undertaken as the result of a meeting i
Wednesday night at the parlors of the J
Modern Woodmen of America, at j
which camps 26 and 13,443, Roclc I
Island, and camp 457, Moline, were i
C. F. Huthmaker served as chair
man of the meeting and G. P. Garri
son as secretary. District Deputy E.
Boultinghouse of Aledo, and Special
Deputy Colloni were among those pres
ent. It was decided to rlace the cam
paign in immediate charge of five
members of each camp participating.
Camp 20 will be represented by Max
Harder, Will Yoss, Dr. Pearce, Albert
Gutzweiler and E. F. Johnson; camp
13.443 by Charles Fulmer, Charles
Harris. E. A. Adams, E. E. Potter and
G. P. Garrison, and camp 457 by Art.
Abrahamson, Clark Nelson, Ed. Rrown,
James Hasson and C. S. Trevor.
The new members, except those ex
pressing another preference, will be
adopted in the camps participating in
the rapatgn. The field will be di
vided between District Deputy Boult
inghousc and Special Deputy Collom
It is anticipated that the work of
securing new members will be much
facilitated by the society's adoption of
the now scientific and adequate rates,
which make Modern Woodmen insur
ance as safe and permanent as the
pyramids and will enable the cam
paigners to present the proposition
strictly on its merits and as a sound
business as well as a fraternal proposition.
