EAST JORDAN. MICHIGAN, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1912.
Sunday, Oct. 27th, Day Set By
Proclamation of Goyernor.
The National Association for the
Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis
lias decided upon October 27 as Nat
ional Tuberculosis Day. Such In
roads upon life are made by tubercu
losa that In the United States two
hundred thousand death annually
are caused by It me every three
minutes. Experts state that one
half of all who die between the nes
of eighteen and forty-five are victims
of tuberculosis, but no repetition of
figures, no emphasis of speech, no
words of warning can add to the hor
ror ana terror and responsibility
which, In the public mind, attach to
the gruesome devastations of this di
sease. People., public and private,
who do not perform every act within
their power to check this scourge are
almost KUllty of negative murder.
It is uot enough to segregate vic
tims, to be cleanly, to prevent Infec
tion by sanitary methods In the de
struction of sputum and otherwise.
Tuberculosis will not be arrested
until the rico is built stronger, until
the reserve foice that resists attacks
of disease is greater and more potent.
The cause of tuberculosis a well as
lu prevention must be studied. The
conditions that make for the weaken
ing of the race must, be remedied.
As long as mere are lowly and con
tested quarters in cities; as long as
people are badly fed and overworked;
an loo it as the working classes are im
properly housed both during their
work and resting hours; as long as
avarice drives the individual or em
ployers' selfishness overdrives the em
ployee; as long as there Is excessive
alcoholism and use of other poisons;
the human race will continue to
weaken. The vital energies of man
kind must not be dissipated. When
these things are checked by moral
and legal rules of discipline, the
greatest blow will be given to tuber
culosis and kindred enemies of life.
The situation calls tor such grave
consideration that I deem It my pub
lic duty to oillcially emphasize the
value of united effort In this direc
tion. Therefore, I, Chase S. Osborn, Gov
ernor of the Commonwealth of Michi
gan, in the name of and for the people
of Michigan, do issue this Proclama
tion and urge the observance of Oct
27, 1912, as Tuberculosis Ijay.
Given under mv hand and the great
Seal of the State of Michigan, this
twelfth day of September, In the
rear of our Lord, one thousand nine
hundred and twelve, and of the Com
monwealth the seyenty-slxth.

Whereas it has pleased Almighty

And whereas, In our departed

Therefore, be it resolved, that this

Rural Mail Carriers Schedule
Now in Effect.
Postmaster General Hitchcock, un
der a recent authorization of congress
has increased the salaries of about
42.000 rural letter carriers.
The compensation on standard
routes, averagiog about 24 miles, of
which there are about 30,000. is
raised from $1,000 to $1,100 a year,
with proportionate Increases on short
This involves an additional cost of
about $4,000,000 a year, and is the
tccond general increase in salaries
during the present administration.

started sixteen years ago the carriers
were paid $-00 a year.
Handling Fruit For Storage.
It does not pay to store Inferior
grades of fresh fruit for marketing,
no matter how short tho fruit crop
may be in your section. Such fruit
does not keep well, and in the next
place it is a blunder to try to get the
public to pay a good price for pour
Grade the fruit according to s lie,
color and quality, and pack so that
the contents of the packages are the
same from lop to bottom. Mark and
sell according to grade. And if the
conditions seem favorable store only
the best grades.
It goes without saying that fruit
to rauk as first class must be free
from blemishes due to fungi and In
sects. It must be of fair size and
color for the variety, uniform, and so
carefully picked and handled that it
shall be free from even slight bruises.
If only such fruit is stored the risk
of keeping and realizing a satisfac
tory price under changing market
conditions is very much less than
otherwise. Tight packages for cold
storage apples, head cushions at top
and bottom of barrels are deslraMe.
Paper wraps are of value in pack
ing the fancy grades.
Now comes the point which, possi
bly more than any other' is a common
source of loss. The mistake cousists
in barreling or boxing up apples and
letting t hem lie in the orchard or in
buildings for several days before they
are sent to storage. Sometimes the
car remains on the track several days
before the loading Is completed. In
either case several days elapse before
the fruit is sent to storage. In one
case coming to ray knowledge the
fruit was kept out of storage for sev
eral weeks. Fruit so handled is al
most sure to shrink to the extent of
10 or 40 per cent by January, some
The rule tj be invariably followed
in handling apples for storage is to
gel them into storage the same day
they are gathered and packed. The
sooner the better.
The Best Man In Town.
The best man we have in the town

Petoskey Man Unknowingly In
haled Gas For Days
Sleeping three nights in his resi
dence with the gas cock in his room
turned on and the leaking gas was the
experience of a Petoskey man, whose
wife was on a visit in another city.
As a result of an operation that had
been preformed on the man's nose a
few years ago he was without the
sense of smell, which accounted for
his Inability to notice that the gas
was escaping. The only thing that
saved his life was the fact that the
window w,a wide open and the fumes
allowed to escape.
So, for three days and three nights
the gas leaked from that lamp.
How the tap came to be open
Is not known, but the knob probably
was turned by accident. Had there
ben a storm which necessitated . the
closing of the window, the man would
never awakened from his sleep. As
it was, while he was thankful that he
escaped with his life, that meter ran
up something fierce. If the wife had
not returned soon and detected the
leaking funis there Is no telling what
would have happened. Perhaps this
story would have been an obituary
Instead of a humorous yarn, which,
however Is absolutely true. Petoekey
Tempting Apple Recipes.
At this season of the year apples
are so plentiful that nearly every
housekeeper has free access to all she
can use. Doctors say that them is
no fruit more nutritious or healthful
than the apples, eaten either raw or
cooked. Do not fall into the habit
of cooking them the same way every
day; baked apples, apple pie and ap
ple sauce are very palatable for a few
times, but they get tiresome when
served repeatedly. Try preparing
them In different ways from time to
time, and see how the family will
relish them. Following are, some
recipes which have been carefully
tested and found very delicious.
Spread the bottom of a buttered
baking dish with a thick layer of
browned bread crumbs. Add bits of
butter, then a layer of well sweetened
applesauce, sprinkling of salt and
nutmeg, more lumps of butter, a lay
er of crumbs, alternating witt apple
sauce until the dish Is filled. Have
the top layer of crumbs and butter,
Bake, covered, half hour, then remove
cover and brown. Serve hot with
hard sauce. Raisins may be added if

Pare and core 12 Pippins and slice
thin. Stir Into 1 qt. sweet milk 1 qt.

that has been dissolved in a little
warm water. Pour into a buttered
pudding dish and bake 4 hours.
Serve hot with hard sauce or maple
APPLE AND IIICRORYNUT PUDDING.
Cream i cup sugar with i cup but

And others funcy Bill.
And others still for Theodore

A speaker on his perch,

October was originally the eighth
month of the Romans, but It brought

The gentle spirit of the Fall

And the football player will appall

And sound his shrill olllcial toot,
The moth will drill a few nfore holes
In everybody's Winter suit.
There is no glory to compare with
