THE FARMER: NOVEMBER 22, 1913
BANDMASTER CAME,
GOT CASfyNOW G0I1E
Musician To "Royal Family"
Promoted Music Trust.
Assistant State's Attorney Galen A.
Carter has been asked to look Into
the conduct of Giovanni Curtis, said
now to be enroute to France. It Is
claimed he obtained $3,000 from Ital
ians In Bridgeport, Norwalk and. Tor
rington for the purpose of organizing
Italian bands.
In their words, he changed the fa
mous saying of his illustrious ancestor
Veni. -vidl, vici," (I came, I saw, I
Conquered) to "Veni, recepi, ivi," (I
came, I got, I went). According to
his story he formerly lived in tne
Venician town of Verona, was made
a Chevalier of the Italian Crown,
March 14, 1908, and afterwards, on
account of his musical ability, was
made Instructor to members of the
royal family. Then, last July, bs
accepted a position with the Imperial
Band of Philadelphia at $50 a week
but soon gave it up as he though that
there were better opportunities. His
mind settled on the organisation of
bands, beginning In Conecticut. The
plan met with favor and soon he had
numerous prominent citizens of his
countrymen working in behalf of the
cause. Numerous signed cards and
bearing a photograph of him clad in
band costume were distributed. He
is said tohave advanced the argu
ment that there would be glory and
money - in the various bands, if led
and instructed by such an accomplish
ed musician as himself.
According ' to the story told to the
police, there was about $1,300 collect
ed from Bridgeport prospective mem
ber's. $1,000 in Norwalk and the same
amount In Torrington. Maxiy are said
to have put all of their spare money
Into the venture.
Then came the question of uniforms
and instruments and it Is said that
Giovanni insisted that the best would
only be satisfactory. On account of
his experience, it was admitted, he
was retained to secure them. Since
then, they said, they have ' waited
and watched but without success.
Drems that the bands would be a
reality for the holidays faded. Then
came the report that he had -called
"Wednesday for ' France. The appeal
to the authorities quickly followed.

ACCIDENT AT
COS COB DELAYS
FOOTBALL TRAIN
Owing to an accident at the power
house of the New York, New Haven
and Hartford railroad company at
Cos Cob shortly after 8:30 o'clock this
morning, traffic was tied up for some
time. All trains running into this city
from New York and Harlem River
were from 13 to 37 minutes late. The
fault was located shortly before noon
and repaired while engines from the
roundhouse at Stamford were used to
pull the trainsf rom Harlem River to
Stamford. The tielng up of the road
at this time caused twos peeial trains
of the Harvard club, who were on
their way to the Yale-Harvard game
at Cambridge, to be delayed 35 min
utes. iStamford, Nov. 22 Train traffic on
the edlectrified zone of the New York,
New Haven & Hartford Railroad be
tween Stamford- and Wood lawn was
temporarily suspended from 8:54 to
8:4 2th la morning and all trains in the
zone were detained until they could be
drawn off by. locomotives. ' The cause
of (suspension was lack of current from
the Cos Cob power hounse, but the pri
mary cause had not been determined
up till noon.
' It is believed, however, that there
was a generator trouble In the . power
house. About. 10 o'clock some current
was available and from that time
trains in this zone moved, but as the
current was husbanded the usual speed
was not maintained by the trains. The
Stamford, division of the Connecticut
company was also out of business for
a time.
, The stalled trains bore hundreds of
prospective spectators at the Tale-
Harvard . game at Cambridge. Many
of the ticket holders will be late at the
game. The railroad company sent lo
comotives into the zone and with these
drew out the expresses so that delaya
did not exceed an hour. :
General Manager SBardo was rushed
on a special train from New Haven.
It Is expected that traffic would be nop.
mal during the afternoon. (Passenger,
traffic is reported as exceedingly heavy.

MEASLES MAKE MANY
. MOTHERS MOURN
Over 11,000 Deaths From It in 100
Disease Should Not Be Fought,
As Formerly.
Washington, Nov. 23 In the older
days nearly every mother thought It
her duty to see that her youngsters
"caught" the measles and got over It
as a sort of "Immunization."
Measles infection was often actually
sought, bo that mothers coudd know
that their children were "getting" it,
could take care of the sufferers, and,
when the child was cured, the pa
rents could feel that the youngster
was immune from further attacks.
Modem science has poinited -out the
grave danger of such a practice. Ma
lignant measles annually takes fear
ful toll of children's lives. Every pre
caution should be exercised to prevent
infection. The following article tell
ing of the dangers of iraaliigiroant
measles was specially prepared toy the
assistant surgeon general of the U. S.
Public Health Service: v
(By Dr. W. O. Rucker.) . ' '
Little Johnnie has the measles, what
a cough and reddened nose ! . . He la
cross and. mean and peevish and he's
redder than a -rose. Cooped' up in the
sunless parlor, little Johnmie w-Mnes
about. Everyone of you will catch, it,
tf you don't we.tch out ! ! !
Little Mary's mother thought it
wise to .have the measles o'er, so she
took her little daughter in to play
witft John next door. Two weeks lat
er, Mary sickened and her little life
went ouit. Everyone of you will catch
it, if you don't wiatcti. oat ! ! !
Over eleven thousand American ' chil
dren died of meiasles in the: year 1910.
This did not include a large number
who died of broncho-pneumonia, a
great number of cases of which, in
children, are caused by measles. Sixty-eight
and two-tenthi3 per cent, of
all deaths from broncho-pneumonia
occur to. children ' iMwSer fiv! years of
age, a time of life -when measles is
most apt to occur. But the story of
the ravages of this disease is not
complete without the mention of the
large numlber of cases of tuberculosis
which follow an atack of it. Less fre
quently inflammation of the ear or
the eye may toe left behind as a mark
of visitation of this common disease.
Krom a publla health standpoint,
then, measles is a disease of prims
tmiportaaxce. MiaU-gnant measles make
many mothers mourn.
Johnnie1 was invited, to a birthday
party one Saturday afternoon, and he
had a fine time playing ''post-office'
Bind similar games. He did not no
tice that two of the little girls with
whom he had played had reddened
eyes, a cough, and a "runny" nose.
Even- if too had: seen it toe would not
have known that they were in the be
ginning stages of measles. One af
ternoon two weeks later, around
about recess time, Johnnie noticed
that his head did not feel right and
he lost interest in the "Nick Carter"
which he was reading between the
pages of his geography.
When little Johnnie gets the mea
sles, his mother is not long In finding
It out. . In the first place, she -knows
It is in tine neighborhood, and sec-,
ondly she realizes that when Johnnie
comes home from school, ' and Instead
of eating his supper, hudd-les- up close
to the base burner in the sitting room
and has chill, that Johnnie is prob
ably beginning to have the measles.
That night Johnnie's little cheeks and
head are hot and dry. .He Is thirsty.
His face is red. .. There is a slight
swelling about bis eyes and nose. The
whites of the eye-balls show little red
lines upon them, and poor Johnnie
looks as though he was going to cry.
He sneezes a. good deal, and has a
tfiarp dry cough. ,
The next morning Johnnie's mother
gets him in front of the window, put
up the curtain, and bids him to 'open
hds mouth, while she holds the han
dle of a silver teaspoon on his tongue,
and with Johnnie gagging and strug
gling, proceeds to make an examina
tion of his throat. All the back of
his throat and hard palate are a dull
angry red. Perhaps there are a few
little red spots on the 'hard, palate and
If Johnnie's mother " had looked close
at the lining membrane of the cheeks,
she would have1 seen some small
white-tipped reddish spots. These are
called "Koplik's" spots, and. When seen
are sure signs of measles.
Johnnie stays home from school that
day, and. that night' his fever is high
er than it was the night before. He
rolls and tosses about tine bed. and
wakes up his mother a good imany
times to ask lor a annic or water, inis
sort of thing continues for three or
four days, then one morning when
Johnnie's mother Is showing him how
to wash back: of his ears, she sees
some little dusky red spots along the
hatr line. They look a good. deal like
flea bites. WitlfLn. twenty-four hours
that rash is spread all over his body,
arid little Johnnie looks very much
bespeckled and swollen. In from five
to seven days, the rash begins to fade
and within three or four days, is en
tirely gone away, leaving behind it' a
faint, mottling of the skin. Then
Johnnie begins to scale. There is a
peeling off of the outer layers of the
skin in little bran like pieces. This
proceeds, desquamation, as - it is call
ed, lasts about a week or ten days.
In the meantime the fever has gone
away, as soon as Johnnie has com
pletely finished scaling, he Is permit
ted to go out and play with the other
boys, and before long is back at his
desk in school. Johnnie had a mild
Little Mary lived right --next door
to Johnnie: She was a pretty little
girl, but not -very robust. Her mother
considered r measles as Inevitable as
Teeming. ne xnougnc t.l wwuu xjb - a
goo time to. let Mary have , the mea
sles aad get ail over . It before the
"bridge season" began, so she took
Mary over to play with Johnnie Just
as soon as she heard ' that he had tihie
measles. - This was 'not very long af
ter Johnnie was .-first taken sick, be
cause the ..electric telegraph . is a tor-f
toise compared with . the way that
news" travels in a small community.
Just two weeks tenter Mary was taken
ill. Her case was not like Johnnie's.
Instead of moping around somewhat
out of sorts, little lary had a con
vulsion, her fever was very high, and
the eruption when it came out, instead-
of being a good healthy look
ing red, was a bluish, black discolor
ation v which looked like a recent
bruise. "
She had' such a hard time breathing
that she had to be propped up- in the
bed, and very time she coughed she
cried out with the pain that racked
her poor little chest. Little Mary's
blue eyes were no longer bright, and
one morning all the pain and suffer
ing went away only, Mary never
awoke. Mary had a severe case of
xneaslea.
The two cases which have just been
recited are in no way exaggerated.
lUnfortuinately they are far too com
mon occurrences. Johnnie received
the infection direct from the little
girls in the harmless games at the
party. Mary came to play with John
nie at a time when, according to the
researches of Anderson and Goldber
ger in the Hygeimic Laboratory of
the United States Public Health Ser
vice at Washington, D. C, the infect
ing virus is most active. Their work
seems to demonstrate that the infec
tion does not persist after the fever
has gone away. Johnnie's mother was
more fortunate than Mary's. Her
child was spared to her.
Malignant measles make many
mothers mourn.
This is one of the oldest aliments
with whioht man has been afflicted.

and . shortly after the colonization of
America . it appeared In our colonies.
liany egee "the quaint records .sf US
visitaitions, not the least interesting
of which is a letter which appeared in
the Boston Evening Post, November
12, 1759, entitled, "A Letter about
Good Management Under tne Dlstem
per of Measles at this time Spreading
in the Country, Here putollsoed loa
the Benefit and the Poor and such as
rraav want help of Able Physicians.
It is signed "Tour Hearty Friend and
Servant," and the autttoramp is at
tributed to Cotton -Mather, it is stat
ed that this letter is a reprint of one
which Dr. Mather wrote prior so his
deatfc in 1728. :
At present' the .disease is distributed
over the entire habitable globe, from
Iceland on the north. bo Terre del
Fuego on the south. It occurs most
often and more severely m the colder
months, probably because at such
: times people are more closely crowded
together under more unsanitary con
ditions. When mtrod'uced into a peo
ple who have never suffered from it
before, its ra veneres are frightful, as In
the case of the inhabitants -of certain
of the Fiji Islamdis, who upon being
exposed to the infection tell m ana
died by thousands, so hat it is esti
mated that 20.000 deaths occurred in
four -months. The epidemic ceased
only when every person on the lslanos
had been infected. 9
During ihe year- lfliO, the death
rates from this disease in the states
of Rhode Island and -North Carolina
were 32.6 and 07.1 per cent, per 100,000.
In the same year the death rate per
100,000 from measles in Pittsburgh,
Pa,, was 33.1; Providence, R. I., S1.9;
Kansas City, Mo, 28.4; Lowell, Mass.,
28.1; Albany, N. 23.9; Columbus,
Ohio, 23.6; Buffalo, N". Y., 22.1; and
Richmond, Ta., 21.1.
The death rate among those at
tacked varies from 5 to 35 per cent.
If it is estimated that the death rate
is 10 per cent and the number of
deaths from it In the United States
during the year 1910 was 11,000, then
it would follow that daring the year"
at least 110,000 children suffered from
the disease. - When it is considered
that perhaps 30 per cent, of these chil
dren were of school age, andi that-the
disease occurs most often during the
months of school attendance, " then it
will b seen that 83,000 children were
kept from school from six weeks to
two months on' account of the measles.
Leaving out of consideration the death
and suffering which, was produced in
this way, 'tails is a . serious . economic
lOSS.' - - . . -r
. Measles is a frequent accompani
ment of war, or any other occasion.
which, brings large numbers or per
sons together under - unhygienic ooor
ditions. In 186b there were 38,000 oases
with 1,900 deaths from measles In the
Confederate army. It is reported that
during 'the Brazil-Paraguayan war an
epidemic of measles swept off nearly
a fifth of the Paraguayan army., in
three -months.
It is thus seen' that measles is many
times a very severe disease, one which
cannot be dealt with lightly, one to
which ,we should not expose our chil
dren. A child with measles should
toe put to bed and! kept there as long
as it has any fever or cough. The
room should toe airy, but it should be
darkened, because children with mea
sles are very sensitive to light. The
bed clothes should toe light . because
the child is apt to get too warm, kick
off the covers and suffer from the
cold. A chilling in this way may pre
dispose to pneumonia. Food should be
light and should consist chiefly of nu
tritious broths, pasteurized milk, soft
boiled eggs and the like. Ice-lemonade
will 'bring comfort to the inflamed
throat. The child's eyes should be
kept clean, and should the fever get
high, the comfort of . the little suf
ferer may be increased by sponging
with tepid water and alcohol. Some
times it is necessary to put an ice bag
to the head, but if the child is sick
enough to require this, skilled- assist
ance should be summoned.
Wiien the fever and cough have
gone, the child may be allowed to be
up and about the room, but for a
time should not indulge In violent ex
ercise, because there is often some
weakening of the heart muscles by
the disease. The aim is to allow the
heart muscle to regain its normal con
dition before putting to much of a
whole state of Cinaloa. They bays
secured a large troop of Taqui In
dians, who are celebrated fighters
and horsemen. These aborigines have
been of great service against the fed
erals, most of them being mounted
men. In the accompanying picture
Generals Ob-re go n and Itrube are
shown sitting, with the three leaders
of the Taqui Indian division standing
behind them, ,
strain upon it. The diet should! be In
creased when the fever is gone away,
and should include good, plain, strong
foods. If there is a tendency to re
gain weight and strength slowlyv the
child may be given an incrdafed
amount of pasteurized 'cream or good
butter. If the child prefers cod liver
oil this may toe substituted.
The Important point about the pre
vention of the disease is the fact that,
Judging from, the experiments of An
derson ' and . Goldtoerger above referred
to, measles Is not transmitted after
the fever- has gone down. . Experi
menting with- monkeys, they - found
that they were unatoie to transmit
measles from monkey to monkey af
ter the stage of fever had ceased. It
used to toe thought that the germs of
measles were In the scales of skin
which were shed at the close of the
disease.
It is thought by some that there
might be -ohronio carriers of mea
sles, tout this is not at all proven. It
ia also believed that a discharging ear
following measles may be the means
of continuing the transmission of the
disease. This is not proven. - There
are on record large numbers of in
stances whloh seem to point to the
fact that under . certain conditions a
third person may carry the infection
from the sick to the well. Transmis
sion of measles to human beings by
the lower animals is still unproven.
" It is not known what the cause of
measles is. A great many scientists
have described germs which, they be
lieved to toe the casual agents, but up
to date these have not been posi
tively proven as the cause of mea
sles. We do, however, know 'that the
infection of measles"' Is found in the
secretions from the nose and. throat
during the first stages of the disease,
therefore, person's suffering with mea
sles should not be allowed to come In
contact with well persons until the
period of fever is well passed.
Since the disease is known to be
spread . by the i sputum, the prime
measure in the prevention of this dls- I
ease is to prevent the sputum- of the
sick toeing taken into the system on
well persons. Children with" measles
should bo provided with a quantity of
sort paper na-pmns, anq as soon as the
napkins become soiled they should be
burned. Children should be . taught
tbcut they must always hold a hand
kerchief in front of the mouth while
coughing. This Is a measure which
tends- to control the spread: of a good
many diseases besides measles, be
cause during coughing, and sneesinar.
sputum may be thrown several feet.
Everything which tne come in contact
with measles patients should be ster
ilized before It is allowed to come In
conact with other people or other
things Which may be handled or used
by other people. Bedclothes, napkins,
table linen, toweds and the like may
be sterilized by boiling.
When it is known that measles exist
In a community, no shild having a toad
cough should- be allowed to come in
contact with other children dinning the
nrst three or aays or tne cough.
It Is little less than criminal to -per
mit children known to have measles
to come in contact with well children.
In this connection it may be remarked
that while It Is generally considered
that one attack of measles confers Im
munity, there are many oases on rec
ord of second and third attacks. It
is true that the second attacks are
generally very trvildj, tout too great re
liance should not be placed on this
immunity. Children should be discour
aged as far as possible from playing
games which will permit of an in
terchange of nasal or mouth secre
tions. It is the duty of every parent
having measles In the home to see to
it that it is reported to the public
health authoritien. It Is equally the
duty of parents to see to it that their
children do not come in contact with
spread of this disease.
Y oii can't kill a child any deader with
smailpox than you can with measles.
Is is the duty of private citizens and
municipalities to take every known
measure for the prevention- of the
well children during the time when
the infection may be , transmitted.
