The trials and tribulations of a milk inspector trying to force insanitary people to live according to sanitary rules are shown in the issue of the Healthologist. the official organ of the Milwaukee health ' department. The story follows: A Milwaukee milk inspector during a farm inspection, came upon a place hopelessly filthy, disorderly and run down. A motherly person with a big heart, but Arm anel weird convictions listened to the young man's sugges tiona. Then looking over her spec tades pityingly, she said: "Boy, my mother was ninety-sever ? years old when she died. She was : dirtier than I am, and lived in 1 dirtier house anei drank dirtier milk If she could nt and it I guess then ain't no reason why I and the cit; folks that get milk Hom this farn can't stand lt too." And not being able to answer tha argument, the mi'.k inspector left he ?kindly withal, but yet voicing he indignation over "them there nei fangled idees of cleanliness." Civic Center Idea la Old. The civic center idea ls not new. ] is as old as systematized building. Th forum of a Roman city was flanke with Its courts of justice and bundine: of administration.

WHY WE DETEST PARASITE Feeling of Instinctive Revulsion Juatlfied, for They Are Carriers of Disease. The feeling of instinctive* re\-*s*I*?J against parasites ot all kinds w-Tli characterizes humanity generally, a which is due to something much mc than the mere pain or annoyance lt their bites might inflict, become mc interesting as further discoveries shi the role of insects in the spread disease. Unfortunately this natural abh renee has not been enough to proti man under conditions of poverty a uncleanliness from harboring such p asites. and now those who understa i how much more than a mere perso j annoyance is in question from the I lstence of parasites must take up problem to eradicate them. The possibility of the bedbug c veytiig relapsing fever, typhoid i leprosy has been suggested and 1 parently there is no parasite of n that may not be a mode of dise conveyance. Files, fleas, mosquit and bugs not only are all under i picton, but most of them are i actually demonstrated as ordinary frequent conveyors of diseases of rious kinds. Health authorities must now t up the problem of getting rid of sect parasites In order to stamp disease. ? From the Journal of American Medical Association. He Waa Prepared.

This lesson ls a dramatic one. lights and shadow- surprise and revelation, rebuke and encouragement are rai I ly mingled. The subject of the 1 - son ls well chosen. leaving 'he multi? tude to whom he had been peaching. Jesus commands that they pass over to the other side of the lake v. 35. "Let us pass over." he says. Jet?I never nsk~ his disciples to go ai he will rot zo or has not been befot . How touchingly vivid is the sugges? tion of v. ::?;. "they took him as he was,"? be ls tired and weary, he. whose Invitation ls to all who are weary and needing rest, he who had not where to lay his head, is carr'ed by loving hands Into the boat and la soon lost in restful slumber? Lovng hands minister to the loved teacher Both master and friends, who are soon to meet a case of great sin. are before that met by a great storm. Pat be who ls Lord and Master of fe sleeps calmly on. Why not? V'ho else could be indifferent? Not so I disciples; they have yet to know him perfectly and hence it is quite natural that in their alarm they should awak? en him as they view the rapidly Till? ing boat and exclaim. "Master, cai cst thou not that we perish?" Weary us he was. and i?f-rsonally Indifferent as he may have been, yet for the sake of his chosen friends he arose and re? buked the storm, and the peace which he later gave the demoniac ls Brat shown In material things as he qt: the waves I Compare v. 39 and 15). Had Little Faith. It was a great storm, v. 37, like? wise a great calm. The psalmist says, "great peace have they who love thy law," great peace have they who truly know and love Jesus. (John 14: "Ti. His rebuke to the disciple-, v. 4''. waa so gentle as to lose its sting.-"how ls lt that ye hav,- sn ;:;;le faith?" They had some faith, lt is true, for they ap? pealed to him in their great need, but oh so little Our i roportion of faith is the measure of our fear. What wonder tv. 411 that they were amr.zsd. This man of Bash who had been sleep? ing the sleep of IntenM weariness com? manding the sea and that it should obey him with tha meekness of a child. "What ma?ner of man is this?" Nineteen hundred yean has failed to answer that unary. ?teaching the other side they entered the land of Gadara. There they met a demoniac who ls, we believe, a type or picture of great sin In that he was ial without restraint, "no man could bind him." v. 3; (bl he was Injuring himself "cutting, etc.." v. 5; (c) he was separated from his friends, "dwelt among the tombs," v. 3; (di he wai "unclean." v. 2. There is also evi? dence of the ftitlllty of human resolu? tions and the ...unless of allen .rts at control or reformation, see verse 4.? "no man had the strength to tr ir I him." Then note the torment of h's life, v 7. uki. tn out the idn't Sins to Account For. Church men:hers have no right to condemn the liquor traffic and then to rent stores in which to carry on the same. Naturally therefore. I people when they saw their ilic;.al gains interfered with should request Jesus to depart, v. 17, and this eve . in the face of what had been done for stricken man. Luke tells us (Luke 8:37) that they were holden with a great fear. Fear of what? Surely act any fear of this Galilean teacher, but rather were they fearful of the effect of his life upon their material pros lave i Parity. Big business will have some the ' tint *?<> account for when in the face eing rat." ight of known facts they still press for the'r gains ignorir.:; i".u> cry of the af? flicted and careless of unreason ".I house and unsanitary living condi? tions. \On the other hand why did Jesus re? fuse such a logical and seemingly rea? sonable and proper a request as Ikat recorded in verse IS? Was it not a very natural request and an evidence of gratitude as well? Jesus, however. .._?> j knew a better place, for he saw a ff~.. greater joy In store for this man. ?**** Hence he commanded the man to "go home."
