There is no doubt about hydro
phobia becoming ?nore com ?ion in
this State aa Ibo years go by. There
was a time when a case of hydro
p' bia was a 'aro I bin", hut now it
io a very com.non thing. Tn ere is
an unfortunate tendency on the
part of some to depreciate t ie im
portance ui rabies and hydrophobia
on account of their rarity, while
others have beer, lcd by the frequent
mistakes in din.7n0.sis to dc.iy tho
existence of those affections alto
gether. But there is no dont- of its
existence, and it kill., more people
than ora' unacquainted wi h the
statistics would imagine.
The Journal ot The An; ?rican

ported that epidemic rabies exists at
present in on<- or mo-re states >f the
Union, and there arc probab'y few
states that have not a few ca es of
thi ?. disc as-.; among dogs at all times
while instances of human infection
are not unknown in any section. In
this respect the United States com
pares unfavorably with Europe. The
total annual mortality from hydro
phobia in this country is from 100
to 300. In England tho muzzling
order has been followed by a com
Dr. Hart, an expert on such mat
ters, says "the disease among dogs
is increasing. In and about Wash
ington its frequency during the last
ten months has boen alarming; in
1907 a positive diaemo'ds of rabies
was made in 14 cases, and of these 33
were found in tho District of Colum
bia or its immediate neighborhood.
These lill animals bit 10 people, 46
dogs, 2 horses and 2 cows. Nor is
the disease less common in other
parts of the country; Dr. Hart well
observes that the preventive meas
ures at present being taken are al
together inadequate, and urges that
stringent measures should be tak

All dogs should be muzzled and
those found running at large, un
muzzled should be killed. This is
what was done in England, and the
disease has completely disappeared.
The life of one person is worth
thousands of dogs. Tho Mayor of

Thc Lincoln, Nob., Journal, a
Republican paper, says: "lt has
hoon informally agreed among tho
people hero that Lincoln is to ho
polite and non-partisan this year.
When democrats from outside came
to Lincoln in 1886 and again in 1000
they found tho town plastered with
McKinley pictures. It was so- hu
miliating to Mr. Bryan that ho pre
ferred to go away to soc tho loaders
ol' his party rather than have thom
como here to seo him. Now a gen
eral fooling of tolerance and good
nature is in the air, and when the de
mocratic statesmen come they will
be received with toleration. A part
of the'ehange will bo duo to busi
uess|conditions, bnt most of it comes
from tho reaction from tho extremo
partisanship that prevailed hore
eight tuid twelve years ago." This
indicates that the Republicans of
Nebraska are more friendly to Mr.
Bryan than they wert in 1896 and
1900, verifies to some extent Sena
tor Tillman's prodiction that thous
ands of Repudlicans throughout
the Wost will vote for Bryan in
the coming election. Tho Journal
says part of tho chango will be duo
to business conditions," and those
samo business conditions will make
many a voto for tho Democratic
candidate, which wo believe will
land him in tho White House at

Tho World HIlOWII
Bryan's just characterization of
newspaper servility to the trusts
seems to have bitterly rankled in the
breasts of some of the editorial
writers of the New York World, and
as a consequence from that day to
this the World lost no opportunity
to launch a blow at William Jen
nings Bryan. "In the meantime,"
says Tobacco, a journal published in
the interest of the tobacco trade,
the Nebraska statesman has paid
little attention to the World's con
tinuous attacks, in spite of the fact
that the World itself has during the
past three months furnished the
most complete and ample justifica
tion for the criticism at which it
took offense, by its attitude of ser
vile submission to the tobacco trust
---the trust which Theodore Roose
velt long ago characterized as the
worst of all the trusts.
"The suit of the United States
government against the tobacco
has been on trial nine long weeks,
the hearings were held within a
litlte moro than a stone's throw of
the World office, and many of the
disclosures have been of a most pic
turesque and sensational character.
Under ordinary circumstances, that
s, had it boon a bank, or a minor
insurance company that had been
placed on trial by the government
the revelation that came out during
the trial would have been accorded
many columns of space in the World
from day to day.
"But it was the tobacco trust that
was on trail, and so the World
found it convenient to ignore the
proceedings, except upon such rare
occasions as something could be
twisted and contorted in such a way
as to appear favorable to the tobac
co trust. On those rare occasions,
the World would accord space to
the trial of the tobacco trust, but
truth to tell, such matter as was
allowed to fine its way into print
in the World at those times, read as
though it had been carefully edited
and amended at tobacco trust head
quarters, before being put into
_iptO tact i iiiii on
many days while the trial was it
Now York, there was an actual
dearth of news, and the World was
compelled to pad out trivial and
commonplace occurrences to great
long1 h in order to lill its columns.
"But no sooner is the taking of
testimony in the case temporarily at
an end in Now York than tho World
find that it has plenty of space in its
news columns to devoto to a state
ment issued by tho tobacco trust in
its own defense, and which it may
bc incident ally remarked is a tissue
of misrepresentation-to uso no
harsher torin-from begining to
"In other words it would seem to
be the settled policy of tho World to
allow real nows of a character that
would prove vitally interesting to
many of its readers to be crowded
out of its columns so long as there is
tho slightest possibility that sncb
nows might provo distasteful to tho
tobacco trust; while on tho other
hand tho World will accord tho most
ample space to any matter to which
thc tobacco trust desires to give
publicity, regardless of whether it
bo nows, whether it be true, or
whether it be of the slightest inter
est to the World's hundreds of thous
sands of raeders."
SENATOR Tillman was right when
he said that no instructions were
needed for tho delegates from this
State to Denver. The State Con
vention was a regular Bryan love
feast, and no man opposed to his
nomination had tho ghost of a
chance of hoing elected a delegate.

Caused Blood Poisoning, Which Soon

blood poisoning started.
Physicians worked willi him con

firs! amputating a single toe. Jlnt
the poison continued, mid on ac
count of the bad condition of tho
