ENEMY OF THE SOUTH.
Hook-worm, Doing Its Deadly Work
Among Our People.
The Medical Record has an arlicle on
"The Enemy of the South" which is,
if not alanqing, certainly a grave state
ment of a serious matter. It states
that the anemia ao corarnonly known
in our Southem States. and which has
been so generally aet down aa sheer
laziness. is undoubtedly due in large
part to the "hook-worm." This anemia
waa long since recognized, but its cause
was not known, and when one gave jc a
thought it waa usua'.ly attributed to
poor food, the malea of the family
being shiftless and too lazy to earn
their bread. Stileadiscovered, however,
that the anemia waa due to the presence
of the hook-worm in the inteatine, and
that the laziness and general good-for
nothingness of thepoor.whitea were not
moral defecta, but werc due to actual
physical inability to do hard labor as
A-ell as to a mental diainclination, both
being the direct result of this same
riook-worm-induced anemia. The whites
are not the only sgfferers, however, for
the negro as well hsrfoors the paraaite,
out they are the greaUat sufferers,
negroes seeming to have acquired a
partial immunity to the poiaon of the
hook-worm. The latter serve aa breeders
of the worm and 80w*?rs of its aeeda, to
the laating injury of their white neigh
bora. It is qyite Ukely alao that the
South owes the introduction of the
iisease to the negro who brought the
paraaite frorn Africa and polluted with
?ta eggs the soil f rom the Potomac and
the Ohio to the Gulf.
One of the moat pitiabie reaults of
this parisitic diseaae is that the physical
c jndition of the aouthera country school

bly aasimilate much oyer 70 per cent. of
the education they receive; in other
worda, somewhere about 30 per cent.

stated that this estjrnate is very con
The Medical ftecord if of opinion that
nuch of the infection of the Southern
vhites ia due to the cuatom of going
barefoot, the germs of the diseaae get
ting into the aystem through the aoles
of the naked feet. But the principal
source is probably from the dejecta of
^he diaeased person thrown out on the
Iand and being taken intoathe system
with the aalada a?d other green stuffs
eaten in a raw state. The taak of its
eradlcation ia a gigantic one and only
large education can accompliah it.
Medicines are known that will expel the
ptrasite, just as tape-worm can be
cured, but of course only the phytioian
can be trusted to administer theae. or
to make a certain diagnoaia. Jno. D.
Rockefeller haa recently given a raillion
dollara to fight this diaeaae.
THE SPRIGHTLY YOUNG
The reporter met the sprightly young
girl not long since. He waa a paasen
ger on a certain ateamer on a certain
evening and the sprightly young girl
was along, and the evening wa8 warm,
nlluring the paaacngers to the upper
deck. The reporter found the sprightly
young girl ready for a chat with most
any one. and as he himaelf waa of a
talkative dispoaition he aoon became
intimate to the extent of exchanging
occupations, residences, etc. The girl
waa communicative as well, telling
where she lived, worked. went to church
and sundry other faoinating bita of in
formation. Aa the reporter divulged
his occupation she waa mightily charm
ed; never before, ao ahe aaid, had she
met a literary man. Thus encouraged
the reporter became still more commu?
nicative and revealed the fact that in
addition to newspaper work he aome
times indulged in story-writing. This
caused the sprightly young thing to be
still more greatly interested, aa she waa
sure these stories must be beautiful.
i Vanity tickling the reporter he then
j revealed to her that he had lately sent
a story to one of the magazines, and
that if she would give him her name
and addreas he would take pleasure in
aending a copy of the magazane for her
reading. "That ia," he added, "if it
ia accepted. Sometimee the editors
reject stories sent them."
"Oh" exclaimed the sprightly young
girl, "there's no danger of that; they
print almost any thing now-a-days."
And she rattled on, oblivious of the
cold chilla she had sent down the re?
porter' s back.
And sure enough the story did corne
back, rejected, and the reporter has
lost the old envelope on the back of
which he had penciled the name of the
sprightly young girl. Months after
wards, reflecting deeply on the subject
it occurs to the reporter that perhapa
that ahe did not mean just what she
seemed to mean, and that what ahe in
tended to convey was that, inaamuch as
so much poor stuff waa printed, what
he aent would be sure of winning out.
Did she mean that?
THE F1DGETY GIRL
I spent the afternoon yesterday with
a fidgety girl.
I went home with a sick headache
and preferred to go without my dinner,
all on the account of the fidgety girl.
I'd rather sit in the room with a
screaming parrot pr a chattering mon
key than to be the unfortunate vis-a-vis
victim pf a fidgety gir). This unfortu?
nate woman ia not ill qr nervous or
baahful enough to be self consoiousj
she's just fidgets because she thinks
about herself all the time.
First it waa too hot in the room, then
there was a draught, then her chair
wai too aoft, then the chair that she
took waa too hard; next her feet annoy
ed her, they were too far from the
ground. After that her halrplns pul
led, and ahe didn't like the aet of her
pompadour when she had fusaed her
hair into ahape again; then she began
to fidget about the set of her blouse.
She pulled it dowo. she palled it out,
she patted the front of her dress and
pulled in her belt.
Then she dusted her face off with
her handkerchief. After that ahe look
ed at her naila, and then aomething
about the weight of a iocket and chain
ahe wore annoyed her. After that her
braceleta didn't set right. Then ahe
sneezed. then she coughed, then ahe
eighed. then she yawned, until I tbought
I ahould have tg legve the room where
ahe aat or go Into hysterlcs.
Now if that girl were nervous or III
there would be some excuse for it; but
ahe isn't; she ia simply self-centered
and tH bred. Her mother never taught
her that the greatest charm that a wo
man can possess is repose qf manner?
and nobody ever e^ucated her up to th.e
fact that it is a good deal more fun to
be interested in other people t han in
youraelf. This ftdgety girl ia never
interested in anything but herself, her
own comfort, her own motioos, her own
clothes, her own appear^nce?and her

ETHICS FOR UWYEK.
Judge Alton B. Parker, who ia chair
man of the committee of the American
Baj; Association which has prepared a
naw code pf ethics fqr the lawyers. and
the Baltimore ^.raerjcan, gives the new
co<|e with comment as follows:
"Here is what the code prescribes
that a lawyer may do:
May defend aperson accused) of crime,
although he knows hirn guilty.
Publication of ordinary busineas cards
U nofc per ae jmproper.
May refuse retainera. He is rjQt
obliged to act for any persoas who may
wisb to become his clients.
Must observe the statute law, though
before it is fnterpreted by adjudication
he ia free to advjse aa td ita validity.
Must exact Qf clienta strictest com
pliance with moraj law. ?
Must accept compensation only fpom
client, or with his knowMge and ap
These are the things which lawyers
may not do:
The office does not permit violation of
law or any manner of fraud.
Solicitation of busineas by advertiae
ments is unurofessional
May not offer profeasiona( advice to
peraonawho have not sooght it.
Should not render service involving
disloyalty to the law or diarespect to
Improper speech to adverse witnesses
and suitors is inexcusable.
May not employ agente nor pay thoae
who bring him clients
So far aa we can see there is nothing
new in these rules for the lawyer's
guidance. What is needed ia not so
much tbe adoption by the Bar Aasocia
tion of another code of ethice or of the
aame old code, but aome plan for mak
ing lawyers live up to the requireraents
of the code. If local bar aasociations
ahould enforce their own rulea and regu
lationa, somegood will beaecompliehed;
but until they do, little will be gained

Lova him, yes, and let him know
That you k>ve him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow?
Why ahouid good words ne'er be said.
Of a friend, 'till he's dead?
If yoM hear a song that thrills you,
Sung by any chikJ of song,
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Waty deserved pratses long;
Why ahouid one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?
If yoa, hear a prayer that moves you
By It*s humble, pleading tone,
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his Lord alone;
Why ahouid not your brother ahare
The atrength of "twoor three"in prayer?
If you see the hot tears falling
From a brother's weeping eyes,
Share them, and by kindly sharing,
Win your kinship with the skies.
Why should any one be glad
When his brother's heart Is sad?
If a ailvery Uugh goes rippling
Throngh the sunshine on his face,
Share it. 'Tis the wise man's saying,
For both grief and joy a place.

AN OYSTER SERMON.
(Kewpcrt Newa Timea-Herald]
It is a peculiarity of human nature
that we laugh at the worries of other
people and treat our own seriously.
The fact ia that worries are serious
They may be trifling in themselves,
like flies, fleas and moaquitoea, but
when they awarm about ua and dislvrb
our temper, our peace and our digea
tiqn and, rob us of oqr sleep, they can?
not be traatsd lightly. And yet we are
very fooliah, after all, to let them wor
ry ua. It denotea either a weakness of
thefjeah or a weakness of the spirit.
WUrTftU at? enelnieTanoTwe must con
quer our enerqies, or be conquered by
S,everal years ago, we dfscoyered in
reading a acientifjc article, that the
oyster had a philosophical way of deal
ing with his or her worries and we jot
ted down some observations which ran
somewhat as follows:
W? bave never regarded the oyster aa
a nervqqa organism. Jo the contrary,
the oyster has always seeraed to qs to
be peculiarly self-compoiod, amiable and
placid. It would be hard for us to im
agine an oyster with a case of ftdgets,
even when the oalawful dredger is
prowling around. Whether restiag at
the bottom of the bay, taking its meals
in bed, or lying down bebind the coun
ter ready to be butchered, the oyster
appears to be entirely free frorn care
and to take no thougbt for the morrow.
|t certainly does not prowl around like
crabs and sharks, hunting for trouble.
And yet scieqtiat* tell ua that the
oyster has its worries. Any foreign
sqbatance, even a grain of aand, enter
ing the shell of an oyster, will irritate
and worry the occupant. But what
doea aq oyster do with ita worries?
Qoes it jurqp about and rearand charge
and make ado? Not a bit of iL In ita
owq calm and philosqphic way it stops
the irritation by covering the irritant
with the sqbatance oqt of which ita
shell is made. And the worry ceases,

TOO WANY MILLIONS.
It's an old atory. but will bear retell
ing. of how for once in the hiatory of
the country, or prehapa the world, every
man and woman waa po? s -saed of a
million in caah. Everybody waa rich
and everybody of course happy.
Tbe man of the houae waked up his
wife on that particular morning and
told her that could not hear the usual
atir in the kitchen, and that he feared
the cook might be sick. So he went on
an exploring expedition and found on
the kitchen table a note frorn the lady
of the kitchen which ahe had conaider
ately lef t, atating that ahe had a million
dollars and had decided to do no more
cooking. Ue atepped to the 'phone and
rang up "central," but be got no
anawer, and hailing a paasing boy whom
he recognized aa one who aometimea
brought him meaaagea, he learned that
all the girls at the exchange had each a
cool million and had quit work. He
went down to the kitchen, thinking he
coukl starta flre In the range. but there
was, aa it happened, no coal, and as the
coal yard wa? juat around the eorner,
he stepped around to see if he could get
a ton. He found the dealer idle, the
men had all quit. each being posaessed
of a million, and the only way he could
get fuel was to carry it in a hod the
coal-man loaned him. Returning he
started the fire, but his wife tokl him
the butcher had not come with the
morning's meat, and ao he trotted on? to
that dealer. He found him very ready
to wait on him, only he tokf him that
there waa'nt a pound of steak on hand
?all the hands had quit, each posscssing,
aa the othera, a million dollara.
The atory nw) not be prolonged. Suf
fice ic to aiate that the poaaesaion of
riches by every man, woman and child
in the land tumed out ao great an in
convenience aa tobea real hardship, for
it was only the fact that people needed
mon?jy that set the average man at
work at all. It would be a sorry day for
the world if all were so rich as to be in
dependent. The very inequality of
wealth'e distribution is one of the
greatest blessings imsginable. It ia
all very well to talk of the un
eqal distribution of wealth and all
that sort of thing, but that very ip
equality of distribution ia what keepa
the mills going. If the rich cannot do
without the poor, no more can the poor
do without the rich.
BIBLE IN 418 TONGUES.
According to the 105th report of the
British and Foreign Bible Society the
Bible will soon be printed in every lan
guage and dialect known throughout
the world. Gomplete Biblea or portions
Qf the Bible were issued last year in
418 different languages. During the
year six new translations were added to
the list, besidcs these languages there
are complete Biblea or portions of the
Scriptures made in embossed. typ? for
th,e bJind. iq ttn>ty-cme different lan?
The number of Bibles issued by the
society last year was nearly 6,000,000.
Of complete Biblea there were 884,195;
New Testaments, 1,116,674, and por?
tions of Scripture, 3,933,842, making a
total of 5,934,711.

rested as spies in Nicaragua, robbed in
Burma. bitterly mocked by Social Dem
ocrats in Germany, driven out of villa
ges in Peru by prieats, who bumed
their books. stoned in the Philippines
and beaten by Moslems in Baluchiatan.
The Newport News Preas which haa
been looking closely into the oyster
queation, right on the ground, as it
were, gives two reasons for depreda
tiona on the natural rocks during the
cloaed season. lack of police boats by
the State, but mainly the trial of the
depredatora by local magistrates who
are insympathy with the oyster pirates.
The Preas belicvea that the State
will never be able to maintain a navy
large enough to atop depredation as
long aa jqstices of the peace diapose of
violations aqd the offender knows be
forehand that he will get oflf with a
merely norqinal fine.
"If it were a certainty that a heavy
ftne, and, perhapa, a jail sentence.
would follow conviction of violating the
oyster laws, violationa would soon be
few and far between. The present
?navy' would find little difficulty in en
forcing the law, and in a few years
Jamea River beda would not be bare."
?The Journal, Richmond.
Our excellent exchanges are right in
their concluaions. There are too many

There are too many cats inour cities.
Plans should be adopted by which many
of them could be put swiftly out of

An injunction ia a command, you
can appeal it and have it removed by
ahighercourt. Nature has isaued an
injunction that you can't appeal
You've got to obey it. Itia this "What
yousowyou must reap." What are
yousowing? If you are sowing happi
nesa and amilea and kindness ardund
your old ag? will be happy. If you are
being economical, earnest and temper
ste. you will be well fixed financially.
Get theaavings bank habit; that's plant
ing corn. But if you are hating aome
one and grumblir.g at fate, that'a what
you'II get. If you are thinking failure
that's what you'U get. Oh! its no
theory. It's a cinch. Try it. Old age
ia bound to come. and find you a ripe
fruit or weed. It'a up to you? Buster

once belonged to the last Empress of
Brazil. It was made in Gerreva by the
famous wstchmaker. W. Zogelin, and
cost over 5,000 guineas. It has a diam
eter of one-fifth part of an inch, and is
aet in an artistically worked finger-ring

It measured 4 inches across the face,
was f of an inch thick, weighed f of a
pound, and cost $1,500. It was made

It is said of the owner that he stated
