May 7. | William Steele, “man of mystery,” yesterday went on a rampage in the detention room at the City Hall. According to the police, he set Are to a mattress and splintered the bottoms of three bureau draw ers to add to the conflagration. The smoke aroused John Brook field, bailiff of Police Court, and Policeman Tadgett was summoned. Steele was removed, and Brookfield subdued the fire with a pail of wa ter. Steele was taken to a cell, where he will be housed until a lunacy commission investigates the case. He has been a prisoner nearly three weeks, having been arrested on a vagrancy charge.

PORTO RICO HEALTH VASTLY IMPROVED (Continued from Eleventh Page.) hand. In this respect much ground has yet to be covered. San Juan, for' | example, is not sufficiently supplied. I If present projects are executed in the time contemplated, five years more will see Porto Rico with an amj>le supply of pure water. And likewise will the drainage prob lem be solved, if the funds are avail able. Much remains to he done in this regard. That it will be done is assured by the record of the past. Naturally, in a population of more than a million illiterates, which was the situation in Porto Rico when the educational and sanitary works of the American civil administration began, there were many superstitions which worked against intelligent corrective forces. The people were given to cloudy notions, which hampered the doctors and the administrators. But they have yielded much more readily than was feared when the campaign was launched. Some of these superstitions prevail to this day, though not to a degree of obstruction. Some of them are fan tastic. For instance, it is a fixed habit_of_many Porto Ricans to carry umbrellas at night to give shade against the rays of the moon, which are believed to cause insanity. The spectacle of umbrellas borne open after dark, with the moon and stars shining brightly, strikes the new comer as absurd. But back of it ranges an old, 1 deep-set belief. Another popular prejudice has a more substantial foundation. No Porto Rican will take a sea bath in a month “with an R In it.” Thus, while we continentals are eating oysters the Porto Ricans are keeping out of the sea. This is mainly because dur ing the “R” months the sharks and barracuda are prevalent in those wa jpiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiri iiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimirmiv || SPECIAL SALE "|| ?!

They are not good for the health. The health work In Porto Rico, started In its intensive degree under American auspices and for a time car ried on by eontipental agencies, is now under the control of native Porto Ricans, who are carrying on with skill and energy and efficiency. Dr, Ortiz and his staff, in the administra tion of the department and in the conduct of the clinics and the inMitu tions, are making great gains toward the goal of a Porto Rico of strong peo ple, a Porto Rico of happiness and a Porto Rico of prosperity through In dustry. With the working people be ing induced to leave the city slums and to occupy sanitary dwellings vir tually their own in the suburbs, ad vance is being made toward the cor rection of the ills that spring from close occupation in ill-ventilated war rens. With the jlbaro being taught practical sanitation, induced to wear footgear, adopt nettings against mos quitoes, fill pools where the malaria carriers breed and improve his living quarters, strides are being made to ward the health goal in the country.

Largely through the schools the people are being shown the neces sity of eating something more than the almost universal rice and beans and occasional codfish. To be sure, they cannot eat better food if they cannot afford it. So the health needs of the people are being translated into terms of be .ter wages, and the em ployers of labor in the island are rec ognizing that if they pay better wages they will enable the people to do bet ter work through improved health and increased strength. Science believes it has found out that animal increase is influenced by changes in sun spots. Germany is increasing its exports to * hina, Japan, British Indies and America.
