ONACCOUNTABLE
' Just what the aldermen are going to do
With tha Wisconsin Central terminal
proposition seems to be still an unset-.
; tied question. The hostility of certain
aldermen to this proposition Is a source
of surprise, to use no stronger term, on
th© part of the business men generally.
lAbeolutely no reasons have been assigned
thus far for opposing this proposed vaca
tion of streets that would appeal to any
business man. On the contrary the busi
ness men of the city are strongly in favor
of the proposition, have taken more pains
than usual to let this fact be known, have
urged upon the council favorable action,
and altogether approve the present
amended agreement and petition of the
railroad company. The only thing the
aldermen are accomplishing apparently is
iislay, threatening defeat, of very impor
tant public improvements involving the
employment of hundreds of men for the
summer and the expenditure of hundreds
of thousands of dollars in this city.
Not only that, but they are opposing
the construction of superior facilities for
handling freight— such as the busi
ness people of this city are anxious to ob
tain, are urging all the roads to provide,
end are endeavoring in every way to se
cure. It ls unaccountable on any reason
able baals, creditable to the aldermen
themselves, that this opposition should
persist, in view of the liberal and rea
sonable conditions to which the railroad
comf&ny has acceded.
The Tribune usually displays better Judg
ment in locating its yellow fakes than
was exhibited this morning in the case of
the swan story. It was a mistake to put [
: that in Minneapolis. It should have been
. located in New Orleans, or San Francisco,
or some other equally remote place, from
,' which exposure would be less certain and ■
prompt. A good deal of the Tribune's
news belongs under the heading "Im- :
■ portant if True," but not, being true is, of
;■- course, not important.
Overdoing the Business
The New York Tribune recently car
tooned the speculative ardor in the stock
exchange by representing a furious bull
tearing recklessly along, snorting and
throwing dust, while, far In the rear, was
a bear limping along, the great distance
making him look like a small blur. The
bears have not been very conspicuous in
Wall street for some time and they have
bad small innings. fy'-tr
Yesterday, however, the manipulators
of the bull movement failed to get a full
response to their efforts and one of those
"■ wholesome slumps occurred which sug
gests that there is a possible limit to the
forcing process and that the remarkable
advance is checked which has, within the
past ten days, made records unprece
dented, in Wall street. The week's trans
actions of 10,100,000 shares and the chang
ing hands of 1,145,600 shares in two hours
Saturday Indicate the white heat of the
movement. .The large aggregate of bank
clearings last week, $3,047,934,602, was to
the extent of two-third's of New York's
origin, and much, of that, two-thirds, was'
due to the hurry-scurry in Wall street.
And profit-taking has kept up the wild
: dance, for 136 stocks made net gains last
■week of % to 26%, and the most active
stooks gained % •to 16% ' and of the 225
;stocks traded in, fifty sold at par and
■above.-'
It is tbe opinion of veterans, like Rus
sell Sage and Mr. Clews, that the bull
movement Is reaching the point where
many • stocks ' are < inflated ' beyond ; their
value.: Mr. Sage says tbat the public will
get Its eyes open soon and see the ab
surdity of trying to represent railroads
as worth double what others could be put
down beside them for. The . longer the
Inflation movement continues, the greater
will be tbe sacrifice in the end, for it is
Inevitable that prices must come down.
There is no doubt that this is true, but
BO long as values outside of - stocks are
not Influenced by the Wall street orgy
Inordinately, a collapse of share values in
that tumultuary arena will not seriously
affect general business. The ease of 'the
money market in New York is favorable
to . the ; speculative movement, | but an ad
vance jln money rates caused by gold ex
ports, . shipments of funds to the interior
and absorption. of : funds . into the sub
treasury will at any. time check the
speculative fervor. If money continues
easy in New York until the crop-moving
season, as some authorities expect, the
bull manipulators of the stock exchange
may, continue their orgy until their bal
loons come down explosively, which will
be a very bad thing for holders of shares
who have paid balloon prices for them.
< American business men generally ought
to have cool heads, when they recall the
country's experiences with panics. Tbe
remarkable prosperity of this country, it
is to be hoped, will not lead business men
into the temptation to speculate in boom
values, inordinately "Worked." ,

The Czar Wants Peace
y- The ; Czar Nicholas ; 11. } is credited with
the purpose '«f inviting the rulers of -the
civilized ■. world ' to assemble at ; Copenhagen
in- September to discuss plans for; the pro
motion ■of international peace:; The czar
as a promoter of international * peace; has
not been an impressive "success, although
he must tbe credited with calling together
the' congress which ; actually adopted the
hopeful measure which (has now taken form
and substance in the international tribu
nal of arbitration at The Hague, and from
which the advocates .of International peace
have a right to expect great "results.' !•'->
The procedings- at The Hague revealed
.the/extent to] which the civilized nations
are willing to go to promote International
peace, at least there is no ' evidence that
any of them are any nearer the Accept
ance of the proposition to reduce arma
ments than they were.during the .sessions
of the congress at The Hague. Russia is no
less determined to continue' her policy of
expansion,; which- has taken in the Cau
casus, Central Asia - and Eastern Siberia
and latterly, Manchuria, while her designs
upon 'Persia- and Afghanistan are openly
avowed in Russian Journals.' •
'Was the visit of M.Etelcasse,.the French
minister of foreign affairs *to St. . Peters
burg and the .resultant' cementing of the
Franco-Russian alliance significant of
peace or war?
... Is the apparent rapprochment of France
and Italy a pointer to the detachment of
Italy from the triple alliance of Germany,
Austria and Italy?
Russia's movements are stealthy and yet
no government! has - surpassed - her's in
diplomatic bluff. The czar certainly needs
peace to carry out the great industrial,
agricultural and educational program he
has on hand, besides pacifying the unrest
of the university students, "who are dis
turbing the peace because the czar has
decreed that a percentage of them must
annually be taken under the discipline of
the army.
The czar, too, has been reminded of the
half promise of Alexander 111. to introduce
a constitutional government in Russia, by
a petition recently sent to him signed by
15,000 persons, including landed proprie
tors, merchants and literary men. He has
already ordered General Wannowski to un
dertake an Immediate and thorough re
vision and improvement of Russian
schools.
The young man has cut out for himself
a very extensive program. He relin
quishes nothing o^ his far-eastern pro
gram of expansion and internal develop
ment. Does he expect the proposed peace
congress to settle satisfactorily to him
self the ; far-eastern question of suprem
acy?
If the board of control should fall by the
wayside, and tho gross earnings bill be
knocked out toy the courts, would The Minne
apolis Journal return the bouquets which
have been sent on account of the great work
it did during the session of the last legisla
ture? We wonder!—S^. Paul Globe.
Too many "ifs" in that, dear Globe. Get
down to the realm of the possible. Take

Babcock's Anti-Trust Bill
Representative Babcock of Wisconsin
has not been devoting all bis time to the
construction of a bill for the purpose of
putting all articles manufactured by the
trusts on the free list. A part of it has
been spent in picking out a wife, with
whom he sails, Saturday, for Europe. The
hope .is entertained that Mrs. Babcock
will. encourage the representative in the
effort he has undertaken to. compel the
trusts to sell as cheaply in this country
as they sell in others. Instances are
noted every few days where articles of
American trust manufacture are offered for
sale much .cheaper In foreign countries
than they can be purchased in this coun-
try. Competition in the foreign' coun-
tries makes the price low," and yet not so
low, apparently, that there is no profit
for the American manufacturer. Compe
tition in this. country by a foreign manu
facturer would bring down the price of the
trust-made article to the same figure at
which it is sold abroad, and deprive the
trust manufacturer of the extra sum
which he is able to extort through the
smothering of competition here \at home.
This is not necessarily free traqje. This is
fair trade, which is a very different propo
sition. It involves no disposition to turn
over the American market to the foreign
producer, because the American producer,
engaged as a trust manufacturer, is no
longer in need of any discrimination in his
favor by the tariff laws of the, country- to
enable him to command his own market
Rev. Mr. Hillis' reason for not wishing
to associate with Professor George D.
Herron strikes one as altogether satisfac
tory. There may be a more despicable
fraud than a pious fraud, but the name
of .the particular variety, does not suggest
itself at this writing. : t "yy : ..
* Dismemberment of Austria
Political students are watching the situ
ation in Austria with much interest. The
dismemberment of the empire is freely
predicted. ; Even \in the Austrian reichs
rath the other day tbe leader of the young
Czechs charged the German members with
a desire to realize Pan-Germanism and
admonished them that such an eventuality
would destroy the equilibrium of Europe
and bring about war. The German leader
replied that the desire of the Germans to
take refuge from the impending ; storm
under the aegis of * Germany., waß no
stronger than the desire of the young
Czechs to seek refuge > under tbe protec
tion of Russia Both sides practically ad
mitted that the end was near at hand and
that Austria would j pass as Poland and
Finland i have passed. '""..;'
Such a sudden shifting of the balance of
power : could not but .be observed by
France and Italy with forebodings. Nor
could England bear it easily, had not the
English at present all the military amuse
ment they care for in South Africa.- It is
generally predicted that ' the death of
Francis Joseph will 'bring about a crisis
in Europe.

this very belief that climate-cure came to be

Consumptives Can Recover Any- j
where. v'V' : - j
Heretofore it has been considered necessary
to send the patient . to- the ( Riviera, to the
Alps, to the Black Forest, to California or to
Colorado. Many physicians practicing at
these so-called wonderful climate cures de
luded themselves into believing their par
ticular climate necessary. The time is nearly
past, however, when the j climate enthusiast
will have the temerity to rise In a medical
meeting and proclaim any one section the
sole place in which consumptives can recover,
and the sooner the poor consumptive knows
this the better for him and his family, and,
too, for his community. I know that the arid
west, that high mesa land stretching for hun
dreds of miles through Colorado, Arizona,
New Mexico, a.small strip of, western Texas,
and away into old Mexico, is undoubtedly the
best for the average consumptive; but the
poor man cannot go to health resorts, nor
can he well change his environment. Just
think of the good that would result, not alone
to the individual, but, to society at large, If
such a person could only know and have
faith to believe that it Is possible for him to
recover in his own city, be that in Maine or
Oregon, California or* Florida, Louisiana or
Ohio. I say, possible to recover, and it must
be thoroughly understood that what Is
claimed is that he can recover if he will

A young Jewish girl, beautiful as the day.
once lived with her eldest married sister, near

Her four other sisters were all married, yet
Bertha, though not- the youngest and already
19, was still left blooming alone, with all her
lovely companion!^ If not faded, at least gone
to conduct with cheerfulness the establish
ments of different affectionate young Jewish
husbands In far parts of Chicago.. „„■* - . .; :'
They were all prosperous.* Flora Einstein,
the sister With whom Bertha'lived, was even
rich; they all dressed gayly in bright clothes
of the very latest fashions; they all had huge
families of good-looking, noisy children, and
they all led happy lives of going around shop

natatoriums and matinees, and for street car

The sisters were fondly concerned in Ber

However, she might yet have some affair, late
In life, almost as hapy as their own—there

the "river; pirates" will also appear. These

special province i. of the -.< river and harbor
squad. These blue-coated guardians are well
equipped for their work, and I long experience
on the water in pursuit of this peculiar class
of thieves has transformed j them to' a certain
degree from the shore police, even though the
department recognizes ■ no , difference between
them. To appreciate the value of. their work,
it f must. be known _ that ; many % valuable arti
cles are of necessity kept on.the decks of.the
yachts and other vessels. '•* These Include coils
of rope," boathooks, '■ oars, brass • cannon, com-*

easy if; the * watch :on deck •is sleeping.; The
duty of the police is to stop the' pirates when,

Patients That Have Recovered. :-
What I say must be accepted as a firm con
viction and- as free. from special Interest In
any locality, for the changes In the govern
ment service have taken me Into nearly every
; section of the- United States, In all. these
! places I saw the consumptive sailor because
I had to, for he was my patient. I also made
It a point to see the native consumptive In
his home j and !In his hospital... I .know of
consumptives who are still, living after [ ten,
fifteen, twenty and, jin one case, forty years
of suffering and struggle in unfavorable cli
mates. , These, | however, j were j persons I with
indomitable will power, j I know cases which
have recovered In .Chicago and St.- Louis.
From a time In the remote past consump
tives-have died '• by hundreds of thousands
every year. Great men and women and even
kings have given? their lives to the ; study
of I the I disease, • and this slow but • steady
evolution from the t mere physic-giver to the ■
seeker \ after cause and effect has .brought-1
about a- united movement among medical
men throughout the world. The result proves!
again- that : when once the composite medical
mind becomes- fixed upon what is thought
to be aright principle, something wonderful'
must happen for the benefit of mankind. The
medical man has said that the filthy. tenement
death traps, j which are breeders of tuber
culosis, > must go; that, the spitting nuisance
must cease; and that consumption, must be
stamped out. Already hundreds of old build
ings in London, Berlin, Paris,- Philadelphia
and New York, which were known to be bad
ly Infected with tuberculosis, have been
pulled down and replaced with good buildings;
because of the pressure brought to bear on
municipal authorities. to „ remedy the evil.
The movement for the better.housing of the
poor has. spread over the entire world/, even
to Japan. It has been shown that in nearly
the same proportion as the poor are housed
in well-lighted and well-ventilated quarters,
where there is abundance of fresh air and :
life-giving sunshine, j does the percentage of
deaths from consumption drop off. This is
not hard to'understand, if one will but re
call that domestic animals do not thrive in
the dark and dampness. j-^'-.Tic
Need of Awakened Public Sentiment,
It is estimated that 120,000 people die in the
United States every year from ; consumption.
If the same number of persons who died last
year In any American city from consump
tion were to die in that city next year from
smallpox, yellow fever, cholera or plague,
panic would follow. Let me put this a little
more forcibly. In the home of yellow fever,
whence we derive nearly all our epidemics,
viz., Havana, a thousand inhabitants died
of yellow fever from 1890 to 1891. To combat
this it cost the United States many thousands
of dollars annually to* keep a corps of marine
hospital officers, with their thorough equip
ment, always at work in preventing panic
in the United "States. - Bear in mind the horror
occasioned by yellow fever and then make
a mental note of this: In this same city of
Havana, in the same 1890-1894—there
were 7,000 deaths from consumption. Yet the
publisc remains indifferent -to the insidious '
dangers of tuberculosis. It is high time that
such ruthless annual slaughter should cease.
There are many reasons for this condition,
some of ■ which are not yet fully understood,
even by the medical profession, but for our
purpose we may say that it is mainly due
to the fact that. the average man is careless
of still life painting, with a blue crease down
the middle, and written plainly in a graceful
feminine hand upon it the single' word "No."
From the moment she saw this picture, it
would have been forever impossible to Bertha
to dream of marrying Fritzie Gross, ' Max
Baumhardt, or any one else who might be a
cheerful and affectionate companion in water
ing the grass,' or buying new carpets, but cer
tainly could be nothing 'inone exhilarating to
the fancy.
Directly across the street from the Elnstelns
there lived a young American gentleman of
good southern family, named Nicholas Har
ris. ~ ' y.\ ,". v.v, *: ,t ■■■•'.
He was a civil engineer, a short, wiry fel
low, rather unusually plain, with small, gen
tle blue eyes, a long, thin head, and the mild,
almost; cowed expression In - those ■ who con
tend with trigonometrical propositions. He
had been educated at flrst at the Manual
Training school in Chicago, then at the Insti
tute of /Technology in Boston. His family
had lived in.Chicago, and then in Buffalo; it
consisted in a father and two sisters.
'The sisters, the Harris girls', were twins,
able, active, executive persons, with hosts of
friends. -His quietness and seriousness, in
contrast with their gayety, was so marked
as to toe freely commented on; his sisters'
friends said Nick was such a plain, practical
fellow; he had plenty of hard, common sense;
they' liked \ him thoroughly^ he was so good
and honest. ;\., '■'fi&^niy
.When some one asked Kitty Harris if her
brother ever read anything expressed by
written words and not by signs or numbers,
she said she' wasn't sure Nick could read
words easily. From this, perhaps, it may be
understood with what astonishment she would
have learned that the brother's favorite book,
far from being a' mathematical treatise, was
nothing other than a piece of fiction called
"Helen's Wooing," nearly touched in Nick's
regard by "And So She Loved Htm," and
"The Heart of Earnest Ingleton, Lawyer."
When he was not reading, Nick used often
to walk in Lincoln park, not half a block
away, sometimes to see the electric fountain
playing, sometimes to hear the open-air cou-i
certs. . y •;- ...■'..
. On one such evening as he was standing
under the shade of the park's poplar trees
in the quivering purple-shadows of the elec
tric light, listening with a buzzing crowd
to the rhythmic air "Lou, Lou, How I Love
My Lou," his attention, was attracted by a
cross, sleepy, overdressed ■ little Jewish boy,
about 4 years old, making a vicious attack
on his legs and < sobbing angrily/ "Wansh
shee moosic." . "..
dramatized, the ; northern mind has been
heavily freighted . with error concerning the
bloodhound. This is particularly, noticeable
now when the great revival of J the play is
drawing such an attendance to the Academy
of Music nightly. The generally accepted Idea
of that animal is a ferocious monster, as big
as a full-grown tiger, with bloodshot eyes,
formidable fangs and an unsatiable thirst for
- human gore, one that is forever straining un
easily at its chain and yearning to tear its
bunted victim limb from limb. This popular
delusion has been. largely fostered by the dis-
I ordered" Imaginations of the artists-who de
| sign .the; delirious picture posters decorating
< the billboards of city and; hamlet, wherever
j the great horror is projected.': As a matter of
fact,' the real simon-pure Simon Legree blood
hound Is only . about fourteen inches. high,
with ' gentle „ violet eyes and a fond and affec

and follow it. .with marvelous: accuracy,* but
when the fugitive Is run to earth it will leap
upon him and bark joyously as If he were a
long-lost friend. It will cling to him like a
brother j and; refuse )to be. shaken . off, but it
will. offer him no violence. Of. courqp that
sort of thing would not do for the stage, as It
would shatter a cherished idoL As a matter
of ,"fact", the "bloodhounds" of the, stage are

To try to check the spread of the -disease
societies have been formed which, with state,
municipal - and philanthropic donations, have
built sanatoria ' and Induced hundreds to go
to these places, where they are taught how
to cure themselves and prevent the spread
of (the disease to others. The f city ,of Chi-;
cago early undertook 'to, care for the con
sumptive poor in better quarters ; than the
county hospital, by erecting buildings especi
ally for this disease- at Dunning. .For many
years Philadelphia has cared for many suffer-'
ers from this malady and there are hundreds
of | men and women now earning a ■ living \ln
that city who.; have ;■ recovered or had the
disease arrested In places of fresh-air | treat
ment right Inside the qjty limits. With these
home sanatoria in. one's own city or near by
many homes' have been, kept intact and the
family earnings have gone on.:;If every good
citizen would begin at once to talk for more
light, more air, more sunshine,, better hous
ing of the poor and the immediate care of the
consumptive In sanatoria laws could soon be
enacted which would restore to every map
his birthright of fresh air and sunshine. Much
of the Whlteehapel district - ( in London has
been pulled down and If the law could Jbe
made to reach this, the vilest tenement sec
tion in the world, there is still hope for
every city. : ---"•'".'■". .--;,..,. ' -.I Xv.
Proper Sanatorium Treatment.;
In all parts of the country 'the sanatorium
treatment of consumption is now being con
sidered. V,:• These sanatoria are nothing more
nor less than specallly constructed houses
situated In as favorable localities as the en
virons afford. Here one can go and live un
der rigid rules. No claims are made for any
specific benefit except those ; derived from
fresh air, good, whoßsome food and-close
adherence to the discipline of the place. I The
patient very.soon learns one thing which" aids
him materially. He learns that many con
sumptives recover and that the patients soon
make" light of their troubles and try to help
in every way.-to regain health. They learn
to keep quiet when their temperature ranges
above the normal or below it; how to take
chest | gymnastics,' :to aid in- expanding ; the
'diseased- and restricted lungs; how to eat
slowly and chew the food well; how to keep
cheerful.and not fret. Most of all, they learn
to toughen themselves to prevent catching
cold, and to get along without being cod
dled by overanxious relatives and friends.
I wonder if the consumptive ■ knows how
much good he is doing the community by go
ing to one of these places. By leaving his
home he ceases to be a most-serious menace
to his own relatives and is indireetty bene
fiting the community at large. By example
he is aiding in the advance of sanitary
knowledge.
A Great Movement "Well Under Way.
In just fifty years' time the' sanatorium
movement has received an impetus that can
tot and must not be checked. Started on a
small scale at Gorbersdorf, by the illustrious
Brehmer, aided by some trusting and philan
thropic friends, the plan has been adopted
ln nearly every civilized land. To-day there
are hundreds of such places", scattered here
and there in Europe, the Americas and Japan.
Tuberculosis has spared the rich very little
less than . the poor, and money. has - lately
been forthcoming in enormous sums for the
better care of the consumptive. The move
ment is thus not alone due to philanthropy,
but is one of self-preservation. Of all the
gifts in the name of suffering humanity, I"
cannot conceive of one more humane or one
indicating more sound judgment than the
Nick picked him up, still making faces at
blm, and put him on his shoulder, inter
rupted by cries of,
/. "Why, Ikey!" r
-"Don't bother the gentleman, \ dearl".
"Did you ever?" • -
■"Selma,. look at Ikey, already." From, a
group, of | stout Jewesses. in. flowing hats and
light silk dresses standing near him. > •.
As Nick raised his hat, an enormous mag
nificent white Jew, with dark mustache and
glittering eye, dressed in a pale-gray suit
and a light, gay, rolling Fedora, came out
from behind the ladies and advanced affably,
: with a sunny smile. kC\' • * '""
"Exshuse me. Vas my little boy in your
way, sir?" O-*"- '
' The little boy kicked out at bis father from
Nick's bosom at this. "/— *:
; "I guess he's all right where he is," said
Nick. - '^y^xzy-
Fred Einstein Immediately yielded to his
son's evident wish to remain, and saying:
"Don't let him pother you, sir," he retired
with pondering grace. : _ Nick • held Ikey
through "Lou, Lou, How I Love My Lou,"
and the ensuing numbers, during which- the
little boy fell asleep. The concert ended. .
"I'll carry him to the car for you," said
Nick, with the kindly crowd-manners of his
sex. '-,-;
Fred Einstein explained that" they were not
going to the car, but "Just up the street." ji;
"That's all right," replied Nick, and he
turned in with Fred Einstein, .. behind the
slowly moving figures of the Jewesses, walk
ing with the dispersing crowd through the
dappling shadows of electric light. They had
gone some distance before Nick observed the
grace of one, a little taller than the rest.
: Her sheer dress of purple .floated and shim
mered in the light summer wind as she
stepped slowly forward, the coil of her dark
hair shone against the drooping buds of her
hat and the white folds of the lace scarf that
wound, around her threat and blew like a vino
of tendril around her shoulders. ,As Nick
was gazing at her rapt, she looked around,
and back again. The light glanced on her
lovely bead and hair, her dreaming face, her
dusky eyes, and as she turned away she re
vealed to Nick his goddess. •^^J.">'r'"';-?,",;.'
He. followed behind her, rapt, and when,
on leaving Ikey at Fred Einstein's door step
and on discovering that they were neighbors,
Fred urged him to "make us a call," he
diffidently accepted the invitation.
He (could not go back to his room at once,
he started out to take a walk in the cool,
late night; he wandered back to the park and
picked j a fragrant honeysuckle from a. vine
more than double the price of the older stu
dio buildings. As a matter of fact, there is
no more satisfactory property for a landlord
In the - city, and It amazes some people to
learn what artists will pay for rooms which ;
offer good air and light in a quarter of the
city not too far removed from the fashion
able neighborhoods. Even where the studios
are located over stables, there is a long wait
ing list of applicants all the time.
The Red Hat.
'"••'■« .....
Now that Mgr. Martlnelll has been made a
cardinal and a red hat is coming to America,
the whole question of American cardinals has
been raised; At the present time there is but
a single cardinal in this country outside of
the' newly created prince *of the church, al
though the number of Catholics in j America
far outnumbers those of j European countries
which j possess a large number of cardinals.
There is only I one church in this country
where a curious ancient custom '.connected
with cardinals has been observed, and.that is
the cathedral of New York, in which the late
Cardinal jMcCloskey ,was burled. .By. looking
carefully one may see a gleam of red high up
under the roof of this cathedral and directly
above.the altar. This is the celebrated red
i hat; depending from the stone arch,, ykh its,
curious tassels hanging beneath. In some of
' the great cathedrals ;of Europe [ there ■ are 3as
many as a dozen of these red hats hahging
from the? roof, each;signifying that beneath
the remains of a cardinal are burled.
Hotels in Trouble.
Hotels located along the route of the rapid
transit j subway, . now being /soJ rapidly | con
structed, are being | interfered with jto I a seri
ous; extent. Houses like the Everett, (Belvl
dere,"; New ,V Amsterdam, \ Ashland - and ■-.- Park
Avenue, 5 all located In Fourth -avenue, bave
suffered S annoyance ; * and *j loss of £ trade,''- tout
along their sections of the tunnel the work
is about done, while | the | hotels '.uptown'j are
row coming for their • share, ot. the trouble.

St. Cloud,' Rossmors and the: Pabat, all locat-
erection of a sanatorium -for the« care •of the
consumptive poor in; one's ■"; own .community.
The' folly of this age of • philanthropy lies
in the erection of monster buildings for hos
pitals. . The consumptive does not need a [hos
pital. -' He . needs 'to\ be ; helped Into the open
air and guided' and directed in bis treatment
by some one who is thoroughly acquainted
with all the routine of this j method of cure.
- Arid Climate Desirable. &
There is another side of this question : that
cannot be ignored—viz.: That \ favorable clim
ates r are "'desirable/j and many t'times • Hots
beneficial '-■ than those places which .we )Save
spoken of above. ': It "is useless for medical
men .in. the east to;decry the advantage of
the arid west, arid- by the arid' west "-IP mean

of Texas near El Paso and,"the mesa finds of
old Mexico. T have seen the consumptive in
nearly every portion of the United States/; and
I am sincere in saying j that I have seen the
most astonishing results in this country, with
some patients," both in acute and in old cases.
The Improvement was vso .i rapid in some"; in

I had not seen it. I have nothing but/a pass

as. one Interested only --in 'what: is ..the very
best for the consumptive,*! say to the person
with means: Go to some point in-'Colorado,
Arizona,; New Mexico, Paso or old Mexico,
just as soon as your, disease Is "discovered.
Do not be misled by • extravagant ' advertise
ments, for one place Is 'as good another in
the sections named, in so far as climate ii
concerned. | Do not wait, do not take chances,
but go at once, and, as all patients are bene
fited by change of environment, one is more
apt to receive the "greatest; benefits in the
arid region by going there early. jlf he does
go under these conditions I believe:that I am
safe in saying that he has over SO per cent
of chances. for his permanent recovery. No
patient, however, should come to this coun
try withoutadvice of a physician. There
are certain' conditions —well known to medical
men, -which' would prevent one's coming here.
Best .Places for Consumptives.
* If "you are able physically and have tha
money, there are.many places where.lone
may go arid'live comfortably. Of course Den
ver and Colorado Springs have the greatest
reputations and most liberal accommodations,
but scattered throughout Colorado are many
smaller towns where there are good hotels.
Coming south, there are Las Vegas; Albu
querque, Phoenix, Tucson and El Paso, with
good hotels which have been recently im
proved. There are many smaller places ti
which the consumptive may go, but in man]
of them the food. and rooms are poor.
These smaller towns have Just as good
climate as the larger ones, the only differ
ence, so far as the consumptive is concerned,
being the lack of accommodations in the small
places. At first it may be better for one to
go to some one of the larger cities just men
tioned and then change to a smaller town If
desired. But whatever place is chosen,
whether in this almost boundless west or near
one's own home city, let this advice guide
you as the cloud by day and the pillar of
flre by night: Come what may, discourage
ments, backsets, or even hemorrhages, resolve
that you will live steadfastly in the open
air. . ■ -■:• < ' ' . ; $■' ~

In the night air. They had*- gone 3to the

their reverent admiration for each other.

In such a place, In such a mood they were
sitting, when through the clump of bushes
behind them, there came a sound of tramp
ling: a pair of great yellow eyes, under a
tossing forelock glared at them; and so close
it almost touched'them, a loose horse from
some near stable galloped, -neighing, past.
Bertha turned whit) with terror, - she
grasped Nick's coat, "drawing herself near to
