DR. FEININELL TALKS
ON HEART DISEASE
Toxi of an Interesting Paper Head He
tore (lie I.unions Count} Medical
Following is an interesting paper,
read before the Laurens County Med
ical society at a recent meeting, by
Dr. J. I.. Jfonnell of Waterloo:
Mr. President: In presenting this
brief paper for discussion today. 1 do
not expect to be able to tell yon any
thing that yon do not already know;
but 1 wroto it hoping that it would
gel you into such n discussion of tho
subject that 1 would I able to learn
something neu about Ii myself.
During tho past half-eentrj one of
the most important points to thrust
Itself upon tin profession is. "The
Increased Frequency 01 tioart l>e

mortality la on the upward trend.
That this subject Is a very difficult
and perplexing Olio I readily admit;
bill at tin Same tit; ?! think a partial
solution can )>?? allowed If nothing
more. And just here, 1 insist, that
we. as medical men, arouse ourselves
to Its importance as evasion and
Indifference can m> longer be accepted.
Heart disease cniiuot be communi
cated in in one person to another and
for this reason, possibly, many deaths
are not reported.
So then, the gathering <>: reliable
statistics is sometimes impossible.
This increase in mortality seems to bo
general throughout the United states
and not confined to any locality. Dur
ing the past oighteeil months Dr. Thos.
DaiilllgtOU, health commissioner of
New York city, sent letters to presi
dents of health boards of fifty of the
largest cities in tin- United States,
asking if they noted an increase in
the mortality from heart disease. The
territory covered by these inquiries
readied from Maine to California, and
the answers received were instructive
Beginning at the North all the cities
consulted showed an increase in their
death rate. I.os Angeles, Cal. showed
a great increase, having doubled her
rate in fifteen years. Coming Into
the South. Nashville, Tenn., doubled
her rate in thirteen years. New Or
leans showed a persistent high death
rate. The middle Slates cities of St.
Louts, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Cin
cinnati! showed that their rate from
heart disease was increasing.
It is sah! on good authority that
during the last year, 275.000 school
children were examined in New York
ami of this number It.500 hail heart dis
ease in some form. Surely these con
ditions did not exist bfty years ago?
Wo are told again that during the
past ten years 1,23-1 Children have die.',
in New York and NV.v York is by up

And make terms to suit your convenience. I sell high-grade Pianos, prize
winners at all of the great expositions. I do not haul Pianos
around, peddle them, and leave them on trial. My
companies are reliable and are able to
Make Good Every Piano.
This peddling of Pianos is very expensive and the purchaser pays the expense
every time. It is strange that sensible people will buy that way.
Don't you know if you have a Piano ordered direct
from the factory, it can be sold on a
shorter profit? it's injurious to
Pull and Haid Pianos
About. It loosens them and in a short time they will be "broken down." You
can't do better anywhere. 1 can sell NEW UPRIGHT PIANOS

prices and satifactory terms. Let me save you money.
