Chicago, liL. May 24. The Journal
of the American Medical association
yesterday pubilaLed an exhaustive and
strongly adverse report oc the so
called "consumption euro" exploited
br Dr. Peter P. Duket of Chicago and
financed by former Senator William
Lortmer. After a careful analysts of
the situation, the Journal uses this

Ihst the "treatment' is given only to
those who are in the ordinary course
of ovects may be expected to live for
four or five years at the leaet, Duket
will have accomplished what he seeks.
And the unhappy consumptive all this
time Is paying the bill In blasted
hopes a refinement of cruelty that is
a dlBgrace to a civilized community.
The Journal reports that It has care
fully Investigated 18 cases of Dr. Du
kefs. Some of these were cases to
wh'ch public attention was called by
Dr. Duket himself. The others were
taken at random, the Journal says,
stating specifically that "these cases
ar not selected." The following Is

lKi, IP KV TASK.
The Journal .reports a number of
cases not cited by Dr. Duket in his
booklet, but who received his treat
ment and who apparently were not
benefitted. Most of them are reported
m dead. One who refused to continue
the treatment is reported to have lived
several years after Dr. Duket had
wxrned her that without his serum she
could not live three moutns.
The Journal complains that through
some influence, which it hints is Mr.
Ijcrlnier's, the federal health depart
ment has been induced to investigate
the Duket serum. This, according to
tfco Journal, means free advertising
for Dr. Duket w hile the slow machinery
' ! of the government is moving.
"It is outrageous," says the Journal, i
advertise a secret nostrum exploited
by a man of no scientific standing and
of unsavory professional reputation."

race suicide, so far as Kenosha is con

the equal opportunity socialists have
been dreaming about.
The president of the Merchants and
Savings bank announced he is going
to start everj- baby born in Kenosha
right in life and he does not care
how much his offer increases the birth
rate. Just as soon as the "little

known, even in the most unspeakable

bank account. The bank book is to
become a part of every cradle In Ke

have something his father never had
a bank account.
Henry B. Robinson, president of the
bank; is a man with a family, and he
is not only interested in seeing babie3
and lots of babies, but he is also con
cerned in seeing the deposits of his

Kenosha a dollar, but I am going to

"The last statistics of Kenosha
show that there were 830 babies born
