A HUMANE WORK.
During the meeting of the medical
association at Atlantic City, a sugges
tion was made that the women physi
cians of New York and other towns
of the north should co-operate in th«
work of teaching the poor to avoid dis
■ease, says the Florida Times-Union.
Thus and individual work has be
come one of strength and union. The
physicians of the female persuasion
have already begun at their humane
task, and the poor, infected children
of the crowded quarters will be saved
hy it. The great philanthrophy of this
movement can scarce be weighed un
til one realizes the want, the igno
rance and the disease that reign over
the tenement districts of New York.
The women especially will be taught
to take hygienic care of their little
ones as well as of themselves. What
is the use of supplying pasteurized
tmilk to the infants if the mothers
don't know how to feed it to them in
a cleanly, sanitary manner. Besides,
pasteurized milk does not disinfect
a room where baby lives, neither does
It make him immune from the dis
eases which attack his elders with
whom he is in too close contact.
Teaching the poor, ignorant mothers
is 6aving the race, and no other class
of women can be better teachers of
the miserable masses than the woman
who holds a medical diploma.
The lot of rulers In Russia, Turkey,
Portugal, Morocco, Persia and Spain,
not to speak of some South American
countries, might appear to a calmly
philosophic observer calculated to dis
courage the pretending business. It
does not seem to the ordinary man
that the job from which you are likely
to be forcibly detached by a mob, or
dynumite boinb, is worth straining
yourself to get. But royal human na
ture is such that the pretenders keep
Tight on pretending.
That Paris doctor who is advocating
the removal of the large intestine
from every child before the age of
three years, on the ground that this
organ is a breeding place, for most of
the harmful germs that flesh is heir to,
has struck a great scientific principle,
cays tiie Philadelphia Telegraph. Fol
lowing it out, we would have amputa
tion of the feet as a cure for corns, of
•he nose for snoring, of the stomach lor
seasickness, and of the head for head
aches. Simple, isn't it?
It is the indirect loss which counts
adversely when epidemics of any kind
break out in a country, and quarantine
precautions are instituted by other na
tions. The British government has just
revoked the orders prohibiting the
landing of hay and straw from New
\ ork, New Jersey, Ponnsylvania,
.Maryland and Delaware, although the
foot and mouth disease which appeared
among the cattle of those states in
1908 lists been stamped out for many
months.
Many stocks are making new high
records in the New York market, and
whether or not the buyers are getting
good bargains there isn't much reason
to doubt that current prices are pro
phetic in respect to the business out
look and the good times which are
■needed to support such Wall street op
timism. The business of the country
is going to make many new records,
and that soon.
The killing of a little girl by a boy
of 12 who was overfond of playing
highwayman suggests that the youth
of the country should have either less
stimulation with high-colored litera
ture and moving pictures or more
stimulation with the rod. Or a combi
nation of bot.ii might not be injuai
cious.
Only a short while and the aero
plane will no longer be a noveltv Just
as soon as a sensational Invention be
comes an assured success it becomes
prosaic, and the world impatiently
awaits for something new to thrill.
Here is a new cause for alarm! The
pauper hog of China is competing witi
the corn-fed American porker in the
London market.

MEXICAN RIVER FLOODS
HALF OF CITY OF CAMARGO
WASHED AWAY.
Fully 200 Families Homeless and Bad
ly in Need of Food Supplies—
No Loss of Life.
Laredo, Tex.—A dispatch just re
ceived by the mayor of Nuevo Lare
do, Mex., from Camargo, Mex., situ
ated 125 miles from this city, on the
lower Rio Grande, stated that as a re
sult of the flooding of the San Juan
river, due to the recent heavy rains
and the overflow from the Santa Cata
rina river, which is a tributary of the
San Juan, half the city has been
washed away and there is great suf
fering among the poor Mexicans. The
telegram states that fully 200 indin
gent Mexican families are homeless
and badly in need of food supplies.
There is no mention made of any
loss of life, so it is assumed that, un
like the flood at Monterey, which
claimed such a large number of vic
tims, the inhabitants of Camargo had
ample warning and we're enabled to
escape to higli ground and save them
selves. Camargo consists principally
of an aggregation of small adobe
houses. It is a town of approximately
4,000 inhabitants. It is impossible to

across the Des Moines river. The
wrecked car remained balanced pre
cariously on the bank of the river 20
feet above the water. It was with

ous situation, another Itoek Island

catastrophe was narrowly averted. All
the injured live in Des Moines. While
only 11 were taken to hospitals, every
body in the street car was hurt. Mrs.
Lawless, who may die, suffered her
throat, cut by a piece of glass. Con
ductor Harry Badgley of the street
car declared that the right of way had
been given his ear by the flagman at
