Washington Is in pressing need of a children's sanatorium where suffer ers from tuberculosis In an active stage can be given early care and treatment until the disease is arrested, according to the Washington Tubercu losis Association. The necessity for an institution of thi3 kind is empha sized by the association during the Christmas seal sale and health week. Improved methods of diagnosis have developed more of these cases, the association said, but the city, at pres ent, has no adequate 'hospital -pro vision for these suffering children. Pliwi With Adults. A few. however, of twelve years of age and over are sent to the Tubercu losis Hospital, where they ale obliged ?o be placed with the adult pa'ippts but as the hospital has no 'special fpoill'ies for ruriug far "'??ah they often, when not sick enough to be in bed, are a problem both to the physicians and the nurses, as well as the adult patients. A recent report of the board of children's guardians, wh'ich cares for the District's dependent children who are without suitable homes and who must be supported at public expence. stated that fifty of Its wards were suffering from tuberculosis. These children cannot safely be placed in boarding homes with normal children. States and cities having children's sanatoria are usually unable to ac tept patients from outside their own borders, as they frequently have a waiting' list of their own. Stresses Nrf4 of Sanatorium. In 1918 the Washington Tubercu losis Association, in its annual report, speaking of the need of a children's sanatorium, said: "Even better than a day school for this class of children would be a sanatorium where the benefits of rest, special feeding and open-air treatment, with medical at tention and nursing service, might be furnished twenty-four hours a day seven days a week, instead or five hours five days a week, as at pres ent. Much of the perspective gain ob tained at the tuberculosis schools is sacrificed on account of the intermit tent character of the treatment af forded. and frequently such gain as is made may be lost during vacations or because of home conditions."

Association Claims Greater Economy on Haul Within Animal's Work Radius. CHICAGO, December 10.?Data com piled by the Horse Association of America Indicates that there are more than 19,000.000 horses and mules in the United States, 17,000,000 of which are on farms and more than 2,000,00V in cities, according to the annual re port of Wayne Dinsmore, secretary of the association, made here before the annual meeting of the association recently. In speaking of the value of Sorses and mules as compared with automo bile trucks. Mr. Dinsmore said: "As a result of studies, other sur veys made and definite statements with cost figures furnished to us by Arms who own and use 51.927 head of horses, we are now in a position to say positively that on hauls within a. horse's working radius?i. e.. the dis tance ?. team can travel in a day? horses furnish more economical serv ice than motorized equipment. Stare ui Hove Delivery. "On local delivery work, from store to store or house to house, the evi dence is overwhelmingly for horse drawn equipment. Ice companies, coal companies, bakeries, inilk com panies and all others whose business Involves frequent stops and delivery work, agree emphatically with the great packing companies whose ver dict is, "On all hauls under twenty miles per day the horse is most eco nomical.' " In speaking of horses in the cities, Mr. Dinsmore said: "Our investigations in cities during the past year show that competition will force all cities to develop abundant terminals and team tracks, and this factor will Inevitably lead to increased horse use. Boston, with many wharves and team tracka. has very few hauls that are not under two miles for the round trip, and Boston moves her enormous ship ments of wool, leather. flBh, vege tables. fruits, etc.. at a very low cost. Seventy-five per cent of her mer chandise is horse-drawn and she en joys the distinction of having the best lot of horses, on the average, of any city in America." Helps Every Seetloa. In showing how the development of the horse helps every section of the country, the report said: "The Georgia farmer who buys a team of mules pays over money which finds its way into the pocket of a Nebraska farmer, who. in torn, buys clothes made from the cotton raised by the Georgia farmer. Both profit Nebraska cannot produce cotton, and it is more profitable for Georgia to raise cotton than to rear niules. "Faulty road building in Pennsyl vania has reduced the prices of horses in Colorado, for hard-surfaced roadways, without side roads for farm teams, have forced farmers ad jacent to such highways to keep their teams off the public roads because of danger of Injury."
