PETITIONS FOR THE7R APPOINTMENT TV THE ORANGES \VII,I, BE SENT TO THE BOARDS OF HEALTH BY THE CLUBS. A subject of special Interest was introduced re cently to the clubs of Orange. N. J.— that of sani tary Inspection by women under the appointment and control of the municipal Boards of Health. This Includes house to house visiting among the tenements and other dwellings of the poor, with authoritative supervision, and the submitting of regular reports to the Board. At the meeting of the Woman's Club of Orange, under the charge cf the department of economics addresses were made upon This subject by Miss Johanna Yon Wagner, •>anita^<i' Inspector of Yorker*. N. V . and Miss Mary Marshall Butler, president of the Woman's Institute of that city. Miss Butler gave a comprehensive sketch of the hlftory of this movement In Great Britain and America, from the appointment of th« first woman Inspector at Glasgow, twenty-eight years ago, d wr, to th* experiments In that direction in this coun try at the present day She saM that If she were to take a text from the Bible she would select from the story of the Prophet Elijah before Jeri cho, when the people complained of the foulness of the water, and he "went forth unto the spring of the waters and cast the salt Ir*. there." "Just to." she Bald, "we must go to the source cf pollution. We must go to the homes We must put In the rait— the knowledge that must purify the streams of life.*" Poverty. she asserted, was In Itself a source of disease, and Ignorance of the laws of health was the worst evil with which the workers had to contend. The English and Scotch cltlen. notably Man chester. Leeds and others, as well as Glasgow are evidently far in advance of us as regards the em ployment of women as health visitors, and the various movements there have been completely eueeefsful. In this country Chicago Is The only nn» of the larger cities In which the Insertion of tenement*, factories and workthops is regularly carried on by women In New-York City the small number of women employed were dlsplao-d by the Tammany administration. Good work of tl::- kind, however. is done In many of the smaller cities, particularly la Yonkers. Miss Butler t-poke of tlie great advan tage that women have over men in winning the confidence of the mothers in the tenement h. nnd also enumerated t h»- tiuallties ner-e&sary *<• an effi cient it .

Paddock, of Orange, spoke from personal kn«.w>Ve of condition* t-xlstlng in that dty, among factors' hands in particular, and. while these conditions are not conspicuously bad. the need of a woman Inspector is. In the words of a prominent physician, "too obvious for discussion." She urped the maintenance of model tenements, as profitable to all concerned. The tactful and sympathetic approach of the more fortunate t«i the less fortur.ate classes was en.! . --Ir.'-.i In an address by Mrs. Stewart Hart- - horn, who said t-lie would not v.*«» the expr< ssion "iiettcr classes," and that *he did not Ixlieve that the- r..*>r w«-ro reFt'onsiMe for thrlr poverty, exo.pt In a *mHll jiercentape °* **ases.

They said It was covered with a dark green box. Dr. John W. Moore was next put on the stand and contra dicted Minr.o. testimony that be (Dr. Moore) had said la Davis, "You know what to do with him," when Davis ro|,l him that they had a violent pa tient. Dr. Moore described what he saw when h<» wa.s called ••> th* Insane Pavilion on December 12 and found Marshall giving Hllliard arttflctal res piration. '4- Did you se>» any marks on his throat? A.— No. Q.— Was his face swollen or flushed, as though he had b.->en choked? A.— No Q.— What was th« color of his face? A.— About natural color. Q.— DM you make a diagnosis of the cause of d>»ath?

A.— Tea, II would Indicate strangulation. y.— What would the hemorrhage and lesions of , the brain Indicate? A. -Strangulation. y.— How? A.-lty cutting off the arterial blood supply to the brain and damming back the venous i,),,,,. i and bursting the blood vessels. y.— What would II indicate? A.— Strangulation.

OUR OWN FOUNDRIES AND SHOPS. Q.— You found the kidneys congested. Kidney trouble usually causes heart trouble? A. — Yea. And men who die from kidney trouble and heart failure usually have congestion of the lungs? A.-Yes. Q.— Breaking of the avoid bone could never cause detah. You know that, don't you? A. No. Q.— You never heard of the breaking of this little bone causing death? A.— No. Q.— lt Is a difficult bone to break? A.— Yes. Q.— What is th. easiest way to break the hyold bone? A.— By pressure with the hand. Q.— Would twisting a sheet about the neck break the bone? A.— lt depends on the poaton of the head. Q.— lf a man dies from heart failure there would be oedema of the lungs? -Yes. Q.— Was there , edema In this case? A.— Yes. By a Juror— To whit extent was the heart «a» eased? Was It sufficiently diseased to causa death? A.— No. By Mr Wellman-Are not most cases of sudden death caused by heart failure? A —Yea. By a juryman— Were there .any marks on tn» throat? A. No. _ Q.— Would you expect to find marks on the throat if a man were- strangled? A.— Yes. if the strangltns was* done with the nnjrers. but nor if It was done with a towel or sheet. The breaking of th* hyold bone and the hemorrhages of the trachea v- '¦• evidences of force. If the head was thrown back and a sheet twisted about it. It would break the hyoid bone. '. . By Mr Wellman— Do you mean that the break ing of the hyoid hone Indicates violence? Don t you know that in forty cases of the breaking of that bone ¦ per cent were caused by muscular action alone? A. — Yes. Mr. Wellman argued with Dr. Donlin that If a sheet had been twisted about Hllliard'a neck it would have 1 -ft marks. The doctor said It would not. because of the broad surface of the bandage. Q.— What conclusion did you come to, after mak ing the autopsy? A.— l came to the conclusion that the man had come to his death by asphyxia tion caused by strangulation. A man would have to be in a very violent frenzy to break his hyoid bone by muscular action alone. In wrestling ho might put forth enough effort to fracture the. hyoid bone. The breaking oi the bone alone would not cause hemorrhages in the throat. ' Q.— Were those hemoirhages on both sides of ta* throat? A.— Tea Would the breaking of the hyold bone causd a hemorrhage? A.— lt might. KIPLISG AS A PREACHER SEES FT Hi. MANHOOD HIS THEME. BUT HE SHOWS IJTTL3 RKVKKKN'i'?: FOR RELIGION. THE RET. MR. WELCH 3AY9. "« "The Peliglon of Kipling" was the title of ft paper read yesterday at the Methodist preachers* meeting. No. 150 Fifth-aye.. by the Rev. Herbert Welch, of Middletown. Conn. Ho pointed out that Kipling had failed to depict woman, and that the tender, the beautiful, the merely domestic, seemed, to possess no attractions for him. Ma also said: The missionaries, and their mlghtv Influence In India— how little could we learn of them from Kipling! Ha seems to have a prejudice against any one who professes religion; he has) a doubt of their sincerity. If people wish to command his confidence they must not look too good. His heroes do not expose their souls to the public gaze, and only in momenta of some great affliction some impending calamity or present danger, do they acknowledge their God. He has no use for those who confess by daylight that they are try- Ing to do good, although even the devil cornea within the scope or" his charity. Manhood Klplin* adores— men who do things." officers who master their men. Courage, power, are the first anil fore» most of qualities In his m d. It Is natural that he should regard Cecil Rhodes, who thinks it a matter of chance whether there Is a God or not. the greatest man In th.- world, and should say. in reply to criticism of his moral qualities, "Tut. tut! He Is building an empire." But Kipling's strongest note la In describing deeds that shall profit the world -or which, they are done. His interest hi not In what the world is thinking, but what It la doing He reflects, not th* best, nut the average of his ay. He phrases the. people's thought. He has no time for theo retical scepticism. Work to him hi holy, and all callings ;,r- sacred. Work to Kipling, no less than to Carlyle. la a gospel. God Is the Great Overseer, heaven is the place of the. Master of all good work men. This man may handle some of our sacred things with scant reverence, yet you must not deny his virtue. Though he miv stir the Anglo-Saxon blood to battle, those who love Cromwell and Joshua cannot complain. The something that das tinguishes Christianity from other religions he has not. He Is. rather, an early Hebrew. The Father hood of God, the might of love to rule a disor dered world, he does not see. Ours Is an age that needs the Cross. May Kipling live to help th-> world to. measure up to the high calling of God in Christ Jesus! BUTTS a CnARGE OF CITY BILLS.. ¦ Congressman-elect Thomas J.
