Olympia, - • . Wash. JOB PRINTING E^?n e o,,ice WASHINGTON STANDARD MENTAL RE-ACTION. SOME PEOPLE MAY BE LITERAL- LY SCARED TO DEATH Views of an Eminent Physician of the Retro- Active Effects of Mind Over Matter—Pain in Hack Attributed to Disarrangement of the Kidneys and a Twinge in the Chest Regarded as the Precursor of Tuberculosis—Fallacies About the Eyes and Teeth—Tobacco and Coffee are Not the Disaffectants that Many Persons Believe They Are. " Scared to death" is a bit of phrase ology almost as old as tlic language, says the Chicago Tribune. It seldom has been taken literally, in its full sense, but that its possibilities are worthy of sober consideration in the onset of diseases lias been referred to by l)r. Francis \V. McXamara, of Chi cago, as a more or less urgent truth. "No fallacy in the lay mind finds deeper root than does a medical fal lacy," said Dr. MeXamara, " and the necessity of destroying some of these fallacies is apparent. Some of these came from misdirected science years ago; others arc the product of un trained minds, which have mingled observations and superstitions. All of these false notions are obstructions to the art of healing. "Think of it! Ten years ago an up-to-date physician, having a patient covered with boils, would dose the vic tim with drugs in order to free his blood from impurities. He would even make the remark that each boil was worth $5 to the patient, as giving an outlet to impurities in the blond. " To-dsy any well-read physician laughs at the idea. He knows that the boil is of microbe origin ; that the parasite, perhaps carried by the wind, lodges in the garments or on the skin and follows a hair follicle into the skin, where irritation and pus secre tions follow. If the person's blood bp poor and his health bad he is more likely to become a victim of the boil germ. Nowadays, instead of the nau seous medicines given internally, an tiseptic lotions are applied, and often the patient suffers only from one boil, whereas, under old-time methods, he might have reinfected himself until he had a dozen. " How many lives have really been shortened by a sudden sensation of pain in the back? A man, bending over and walking as if on eggs, feels that he has kidney disease. The pain is just there. He can caii feel it be yond doubt as to its location. "Yet in kidney diseases there is no pain until, perhaps, suppuration be gins. The mail's pain is rheumatic, perhaps, or simply muscular; yet the fright he gets may have serious conse quences. "Another man feels that he is to have pneumonia, or even tuberculosis, because, after a slight cold, he feels a pain in his chest. Now, neither pneu monia nor tuberculosis starts with pain. The nagging pain in the rib re gion or behind the shoulder blade most frequently is a neuralgic or rheu matic symptom, following bad or long continued state of wet feet. " Many people have an idea that a a cut between the thumb and finger or an injury to die sole of the foot is at all times threatening of lockjaw. It is—only if the microbe of tetanus finds lodgment there and multiplies. If this vegetable growth, common to garden soil, should find lodgment in a wound in any other part of the body, lockjaw would be just as certain. If the germ docs not get in there can be no lockjaw. " Millions of people are made wretched every year, or, perhaps, have their live 3 shortened, by feeling that they have heart disease. They have a pain in that region, and their own di agnosis is sufficient to convince them of the malady. As a matter of truth, there is seldom any pain from heart disease. The trouble is indigestion only. The stomach, lying just under the heart, is distended to a painful de gree by gases, and, crowding toward the heart, perhaps, makes the pain seem to be in that organ. "Take the eye. Many people have the idea that it can be removed from the head by surgeons. The idea comes from the fact that with both eyelids turned inside out the eye seems to be on the cheek. To remove the eye, however, with its six muscles and its thick uerve passing iuto the brain, would destroy the sight of that organ forever. "Often you hear a person say his sight is failing, but that he will not put on glasses for the reason that he would have to continue wearing them. This is a mistake in modern eye sur gery, for the reason thai glasses are now made to correct abnormalities in the eye itsolf. Defective sight in so many cases comes from an alteration in the shape of the lens in the eye. In the extremely young this lens is al most round, making the child near sighted. As the person grows older the lens enlarges and flattens, until at old ago we find the person can readily "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall Where they May." see at a distance, but lias trouble to read or write. Spectacles do not de lay the flattening of the eye lenses, but they do gave strain upon the eyes, and in the long ruu arc beneficial. " There is a common belief that the ' eye tooth' is connected by a nerve with the eye, and that to remove this particular tooth would be dangerous to the sight. There is no such direct connection. The facial nerve comes out of the brain and skull just in front of the ear, dividing into branches and sending a shoot to each tooth in the upper jaw and to each one in the lower maxillary. Other branches go to the cheeks, forehead, nose, eyelids, and even to the eye itself, but the big optic nerve comes out of the brain di rectly to the back of the eye and ends there, so that the eye teeth have no more connection with the sense of sight than have one's incisors and molars. "Thousands of people believe in the efficacy of tobacco as a disinfectant. Coffee, too, burned in a room is sup posed to be another. But both of them are valueless. Tobacco smoke may kid Ilies, but so will water, yet water is one of the great elements for the propagation of microbes l'ut damp tobacco away for a few days and you will find millions of microbes feasting upon it, as if it were nectar. As to the use of tobacco, it rather is inclined to lower one's vitality and make disease germs more menacing. "Whenever an epidemic of influen za, pneumonia, or like diseases con fronts us, you can read all kinds of advice in the newspapers. Most of it is misleading and harmful. A man burns a handful of coffee in his base ment, confident that its fumes rise up through the house, destroying the dis ease germs. The idea is preposterous. " So on, along these lines, one might point to half a hundred more or less dangerous fallacies in the minds of the people. These errors are of two extremes, but both harmful. In one case a man having little the matter with him magnifies a pain or hurt and scares himself into a state of hy pochondria. On the other hand, feel ing that pain should be the forewarn ing element in certain acute diseases, he brushes aside other symptoms as insignificant and lets the disease run on further than he should before con sulting medical advice. "In any case, popular diagnoses and popular prescriptions are extreme ly dangerous things." TO CHANGE A QUARTER You Must Have Exactly Seventy Cents at Dis- position. " How much does it take to change a quarter?" asked the bartender. " Twenty-five cents, eh? Not on your life. It takes 70 cents t« do the trick. How many ways do you suppose a quarter dollar can be changed? Just exactly 11. A fellow of limited means may like the jingle of coin in his clothes. In that event you can give him 25 pennies or 20 penuies and one nickel, supposing he wants to get a beer. He may liko to have a little sprinkling of silver in his clothes, and you can accommodate him with 15 pennies and a dime, or 10 pennies, n dime, und a nickel. If he prefers to have change handy for a beer and a car fare, why 15 pennies and two nickels will fix him up, having a little stock of cash in his jeans, give him 10 pennies and three nickels. That makes six ways. Now, then, a fellow with a quarter can trade it off for five pennies and two dimes, five pennies and four nickels, two dimes and one nickel, one dime and three nickels, or five nickels, just as he prefers. And to accommodate him in any way that fie might select you have to possess 25 pennies, two dimes and five nickels— -70 cents in all." School Supplies. " Papa, I must have some school supplies," remarked Willie at the supper table. "Gracious alive!" ejaculated Wil lie's paps. " Will I never get done buying school supplies? What do you ha*e to have now?" " Well, I got t' hare a football, a nose shield, a pair of springheel times, a belt, a flannel shirt, leg guards, a chunk o' rubber t' hold in my teeth, a book o' rules an' instructions, a puncbin' bag, a pair o' dumb bells an' a sweater. Will you get 'em for me to-morrow?" Up in a Balloon. It is one of the peculiarities of travel by balloon that you do not feel anything; all is still with you, no matter how fast you may be going. You see, you are riding with the wind; you move as fast as it moves; you are part and parcel of it, whether you wish to be or not. It takes you in its embrace so firmly, yet so softly, you do not know it is there. You may be in the teeth of a hurricane, but you never know it; all is calm and placid with you. 01YMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, OCT. 25, 1901. CAN FRANCE STAND IT 7 Naval Expenditures of That Country are Rapid ly Burying her Under Tremendous Debt. The naval expenditures of France for 1902 is officially proposed to be $(>2,420,000, which at first sight seems to he .$9,100,000 less than in 1001, but if it is taken into account that the cost of maintaining I lie marine in fantry and artillery, amounting to about $5,400,000, has been transferred lmm the navy to the ministries of war and the colonies, it is found that the money that France intends to *i>eml upon the navy during 1002 is in real ity $2,1100,000 in excess of the naval expenses of the current year. It is a matter of serious considera tion for the French whether they are not spending upon their navy more than their national resources warrant, says the Paris correspondent of tlio New \ ork Tribunr. France lias now piled up a debt involving an annual charge for interest of nearly $200,000,- 000, or, in other words, every man, woman and child in France has now to pay five dollars per annum for in terest on the national debt. The army costs the country $132,000,000 a year, and the total expenditure for 1' 02 is officially propostd to be 1820,000,000. Moreover, reflections upon the French census cause renewed uneasiness. Last March the population in round numbers was 38,000,000, being an in crease of only 330,<»00 since 1800, and even this meager result is mostly ac counted for by Paris and its suburbs, where tire ittcrcase has beetr 202,000, dire principally to foreign immigra tion, so that in the rest of France the population Iras been augmented by only 38,000 during the last five years. That is to say, for military and naval purposes the population is almost sta tionary, attd in this respect France stands alone among tire great nations of Europe. Under these conditions M. Jattrea, the Socialist leader and many ad vanced thinkers among tire radicals and radical Socialists, hold that it is impossible for France to have at the same time a navy attd army of the first rank, simply because she has not the resources of men attd money to maintain bollt. Letters Which Show the Parentage of Our Our Potent but Elusive " Plunks." " All coins of the same denomina tion look alike to me," says the aver age person who handles that form of Biiocie. Yet every coin of the United Slates of the 25 cent piece and over shows distinctly wlutt mint it comes from. Thery are only four places of coin age in the entire country. These are situated at Philadelphia, San Francis co, New Orleans and Carson City. The first mint was established at Phil adelphia, and, as the founding of other places of coinage was then unforeseen, there was no necessity for putting a mark on coins which came from that city. But as the country grew in ter ritory, population nnd wealth, and as the mines in the West were developed more and more each year, it became necessary to establish other mints and to adopt a method whereby the Gov ernment could keep track of the output from each place, and, if an error should occur in the coinage, could at once locate the mint from which the defec tive coin bad conic. All coins are supposed to weigh ex actly the same as others of the same denomination. While, 011 the one hand, but little attention is paid to the differences in weight that every day's wear and tear occasions 011 silver pieces, on the other hand, the slight est deviation from the fixed standard in a gold coin necessitates the trouble of recoining that piece. For these reasons small marks were put on coins which came from mints other than that located at Philadelphia. To find the mark, turn the coin so as to observe the tail side. Then look directly below either the eagle or the bunch of arrows. If there be a letter in the place designated, it will be either a small s, o or the double letters cc. Those bearing tho letter s are from the mint at San Francisco. Others having the letter o are from New Or leans, while those bearing the letters cc are from Carson City. If you do not find any letter on the coin at all, it is nn indication that the coin came from the " City of Brotherly Love." A Matrimonial Joke. Newly married people are always targets for the practical joker. Re cently a marriage was celebrated at Kewanee, 111., and the happy pair boarded a train 011 a bridal tour. They found that joking friends had gone through the train at a station earlier in the day and distributed flar ing circulars headed"sl,oooßeward!" and reading as follows: " A newly married pair will board this train at Kewanee. They have MINT MARKS. firmly resolved that thev will not bt tray the fact either by action, apparel or word. Their many friends, how- ever, offer a reward to any person over two (2) years of age, who may see them and not immediately recognize the fact that they are a newly married couple. Watch for them! CIRCUMSTANCES ALTER CASES. It Makes Much Difference Whose Ox is Gored. Lincoln Commoner The partisan prejudice of some men was fittingly illustrated by an incident which occurred in a western city dur ing the sad week of the presidential obsequies. While the campaign of 11(00 was in progress Democrats had great sport reading a speech delivered by Abraham Lincoln in 1858 and inti mating that it was a portion of a speech delivered by Mr. Bryan. Re publicans readily fell into the trap and denounced it ns " hogwa.-h," "copper headism." An ex-Congressman stood 011 a prominent corner a few days ago and denounced the Democrats, and especially Mr. Bryan, for what he termed " appeals to class prejudice." He asserted that these appeals unset tled the minds of people and made them discontented with their lot, and further declared that the language used by Democratic orators in discuss ing political questions was indirectly, if not directly, responsible for the as sassination of President McKinlcy. A young man standing by coincided with this view, and to prove the truth of the assertion made by the ex-Con grossman read the following : " Human rights and privileges must not be forgotten in the mad race for wealth. The government of the people must be by the people, and not by a few of the people. I'ower, it must be re membered, which is secured by oppres sion and usurpation, or by any form of injustice, is soon overthrown." "That," asserted the voting man, " is the kind of talk that is continual ly stirring up trouble between the dif ferent elements of our population. It is the doctrine of discontent." "That's right!" asserted the t-x- Congressman. "It is intended to make the poor bate the rich. It is intended to make people believe that our Republic is rapidly becoming an Empire. It is—" " Ob, you ought to know better than to talk that way about this speech de livered by William McKiuley only a lew years ago." The Republican ex-Congressman looked dazed, then hastily changed the subject. Burying Czolgosz The following resolutions were adopted by the students of the Ne braska Wosleyan university: W IIKKKAS, The sentence has been pronounced upon Leon Czolgosz, the assassin of our lamented national ex ecutive William McKinlcy; and WHEREAS, We believe that the re fusal to allow the assassin's remains a resting place upon American soil would be as powerful a rebuke to an archy ns oven bis execution ; therefore, be it Rrtolved, That we, the students of the Nebraska Wesleynn university, in chapel assembled, hereby indorse as most appropriate the disposal of the assassin's body suggested by Chancel lor Huntington in his memorial ad dress for the late President, namely: " I crave for the assassin one mark of distinction. He has earned it and I would it might be awarded him. His bones should never be allowed to min gle with American soil. When the death seutencc shall bo pronounced ancf executed ns it should be with the swift justice becoming such an un speakable tragedy, I would wish that the United Slates government would take the remains of the atrocious mur derer a hundred miles to sea, and then, pinioned and manacled, with his revolver in his belt and a millstone chained about bis neck, sink the corpse a thousand fathoms to the bot tom of the ocean, that thus the anar chist might be warned that he shall not have so much as a grave in a civi lized land." How He Talked. Rubinstein, after a concert tour in Spain, was asked: "Do you under stand Spanish?" " No," be said. "Then you bad to converse with the Spaniards in French, I suppose?" " Not every Spaniard speaks French." "Then how in the world did you talk to them?" " With the piano," said Rubinstein, with a smile. RUSSIA is threatened with the worst famine for many a year. The Czar has increased ttic famine fund to 14,- 000,000 rubies and may have to double this amount before he has secured food sufficient for his people, Russia has yet to learn that it will l>e safe to employ her men in the fields instead of in the army. GOVERNMENT WAR MAPS A Diagram Which Will Show at a Glance the World's Fighting Attitude The most remarkable map of the world and in the world, is shortly to be installed in that unique sanctum, the war room of the White House. It is twenty feet long by eight teet wide, and it has required foui months of haul work to make it. Upon this colossal chart the President and his successors will study all future wars and diplomatic conflicts exciting the world. Over its face, as though it were a great chess board, miniature representations of the armies and fleets of the world will be moved, while skilled geographers and carto graphs will continually alter it to represent changes of boundaries, new cable lines, interoceanic canals and whatsoever may after the political complexion of Mother Earth. The work of installing the map began as soon as the President departed on his summer vacation. Facing the great chart, the President can see every point of strategic import ance upon the entire face of the earth. North and youth America loom up in the center of the great rectangle. Thus the President can trace progress of ships all the way to Manila by either the Atlantic or Pa cific route. He can follow them by way of the Mediterranean, the lied Sea. the Indian Ocean and the China Sea, starting from New York, or em harking from San Francisco, he can indicate their progress by way of Hawaii and Guam. In neither voyage will his miniature ships run off the edge of the map. Fourteen colors arc employed to indicate the political divisions of the world. There are eleven distinct colors, each represent ing a territory of one of the eleven colony holding powers. Countries without detached possessions are designated each by one of three, other colors distributed about. Over 1,000 little llags and emblems bearing Hags are being made to repre sent the positions of our army ami navy alone. Each Hag is a square of parchment of about three-quarters of ait inch dimension, fastened with red wax to a long steel pin with a white glass head. A blue Hag stuck through a cardboard strip w ill represent each vessel of our navy, and will have tire latter's name neatly lettered thereon. Each army transport will be repre sented thus, with the addition of a blue and white Hag surcharged in black, with the number of officers and men aboard. Each regiment of iit frnntry will be designated by a white (lag, cavalry by a yellow, artillery by red, engineers by diagonal red and white, signal corps by white with red center and hospital corps by a rod cross. Each General and Admiral will be designated in the war room by a Hag bearing bis name. It will be placed upon the map with noy regiment or licet which lie may happen to command in an engage ment. Each of the foreign armies and navies will he similarly repre sented. All naval stations the world over, and ports where there are docks sufficiently large to repair our war vessels, arc shown on tho map; also coaling stations of the world's navies. Every ocean cable line iu the world is shown. The great Transiberian railway is indicated, because of its great military value. Similarly are shown the great railway lines of China. Fixing liis eye upon this interesting war-cliart the President can trace at a glance the intercontinental lines which transmit not only the acces sories, but intelligence of international struggles. The great . map will ho absolutely up to date, geographically, to the hour when it is put in place. It is believed to be the only map in the world, large or small, which to-day 6hows in exactness and completeness of detail all of the political sub-di visions of the newly rccoguized world. It teaches many interesting lessons not to be found in our school geog raphies for several years, at least. The big map is being made at the coast and geodetic survey. It was designed, compiled and finished by E. H. Fowler, chief draughtsman of that bureau, who conceived the idea of thus equipping the President with such an extensive means for following the movements of the world's mili tary evolutions.

The latest reports are to the effect that this season's oyster crop will he the largest in the world's history. The Jordan is a river that has never been navigated and Rows into a sua which contains no living creature. Glasgow, Scotland, has 315 miles of streets to keep clean and an army of 1,900 men is employed to do the work. Florida is having the largest to baceo crop ever raised in the State. The average is 1,000 pounds to the France lias twelve large automobile factories with a combined capital of 419,000,00() hihl employing 15,000 workmen. In (Ircat Britain the ratio of widows to the adult female population is 79 in 1,(X)0. The ratio of widowers to the adult male population is 155 to the 1,000. Four and one-half gallons of spirits are made from a bushel of corn. With corn at <lO cents a bushel the spirits cost a fraction over 13 cents a gallon. There are 414 lumber mills in the State of Washington, sawing 9,000,- 000 feet daily and turning out 30,000,- 000 shingles. The mills employ 24,- 000 men. Ifosewood is so-called because it emits a fragrant odor when cut, not because of its color. It is compara tively light, a cubic foot weighing 45.5 pounds. THE only lighthouse in Alaska is at Sitka. It consists of a high pole to which is fastened a red lantern. The government pays $lO a month for its maintenance. Women were employed in the Brit ish postal service for the lirst time in 1870. Now there are in the British isles nearly 35,000 postmistresses and female clerks. Cats' tails are a favorable article of adornment for female wearing apparel. A recent lot sold in New York con sisted of the tails of nearly a million defunct felines. Rhode island claims to be the birthplace of the American iron in dustry. In IG7o a forge set up in Pawlucket by Joseph Jcnks, ,Ir., was destroyed by the Indians. The first twentieth century mis sionary convention of the Christian church was held in Minneapolis October 10 to 17. About 20,000 dele gates and visitors attended. A iesident of London recently won a heavy wager by cooking a plum pudding ten feet below the surface of the Thames river, lie enclosed the pudding in a sack of lime. The water slacked the lime anil the heat cooked the pudding in two hours. A Prize Original Answer. In onswer to the question, " Who is the greatest woman in all history?" put to 200 Macon county (Mo.) teach ers, Miss Nannie Vickroy of Macon made a unique answer, which was awarded the prize for its originality. Miss Vickroy passed over Queen Vic toria, Francos Willard, Helen Gould and other women whose names were the most popular and declared : " The wife of the Missouri farmer of modern means who does her own cooking, washing and ironing, brings up a large family of girls and boys to be useful members of society, and finds time for her own intellectual and moral improvements, is the greatest woman in all history." Insulted. Lord Cardwcll was in the habit of using the church prayers at family prayers. One day his valet came to him and said: "I must leave your lordship's service at once." " Why, what have you to complain of?" " Nothing personally, but your lord ship will repeat every moruing,' We have done those things which we ought not to have done and have left undone those things which we ought to have done.' Now, 1 freely admit that I have often done things I ought not, but that 1 have left undone things that I ought to have done I ut terly deny, and I will not stay here to hear it said." tieo. S.
