AIND BUILDERS THE ROOKERY that his resignation had been caused by this comment. He Is now employed as a chemist under Michael J. Do herty, superintendent of streets, In nesting asphalt and other paving ma terials. Mr, Prltchard's placo at tho yards has been taken by Raymond Kotz, a recent graduate of Northwestern Unl verslty, who, It is said, Is not a civil service employe, but Is retained and paid by the packing bouses. The opponents of Commissioner Evans planned to continue their at tacks on him by showing that he countenanced tho appointment of tho younger Prltchard who had passed the civil service requirements as an analytical chemist to a position in tho payment of the stockyards, where lie approved the nitration of water token from fiubhly creek in violation of an ordinance forbidding the use of that water for stock. A statement of his employment in that capacity was published In tho Tribune, and in reply the stockyards managers asserted that the -water after It passed through tho filtration plant was purer than that taken from Hardware and Taala Nata and Caps Incubatera and Breeder Jewelry aad Silverware Neckwear Neta and Selnea Office Supplies Pipes and Smekera' Artie! hlrta, Cellars and Caff Sporting Oooda Tents and Awnings Trunk and Suit Case Umbrellas Underwear Watches NEW YORK aa Ana ef 274.3a Staare Feet Ewen Co. CHICAQO the lako for drinking purposes. Tho question of the appolntmont of a civil service eligible to a placo where his calnry was paid by prlvato Interests, however, had been raised. "J did not know how permanent my position there would bo," said Mr. Prltchard In explanation of his with drawal, "and when the civil service commission certified me to a place In the bureau of streets I accepted It. There was no reason whatever for criticism of my employment at the yardu while I was waiting for a va cancy under civil service." The worst ordinance that over passed the City Council, so far as the health and beauty of Chicago Is con cerned, Is tho ordinance cre'atlng the position of City Forester, This or dlnanco has taken the heart out of every tree owner In the city. It bold 1) proclaims, that, after a citizen has paid out his good money for trees, ho dos not own them and cannot touch them without paying for n per mit to do so from tho city. This or dinance was passed at tho request of Mr, Franklin MacVeagh and other denizens of the Lako Shore drive, who do not have to pay for tho trees In front of their homes, or care for them either, as they nro bought, planted and cared for by tho Lincoln Park Com missioners out of the taxes paid ov the poorer class of people, who must also pay for their own trees. If & Lake Shore aristocrat wants his trees trimmed they are trimmed free of charge to him, but at the expense of poorer taxpayers. The poor man who wants to cut a dead limb off of a tro must go down to the City Hall and pay for the privilege. He cannot plant a tree without taking out a per il It and paying well for It. The n suit Is that people who spent years raising fine trees will now let -em die, before they will add to their al ready heavy taxes by toadying to -i fad. We believe that an ordinance should be passed forbidding the cut ting down of trees, but this ordinance Insures the death of thousands of inem because people will refuse far ther to care for them. This "forester" ordinance is illegal because It denies to property owners tho easement, which of right they possess, to their property frontage. It should be re pealed in tuo interest of the public and of the trees. The family doctor Isn't necessarily a man of family. A man In New York ate ten pounds of beefsteak at a sitting. He' omitted potatoes, as the price was too high. Often a man will think very lltttlo of tho hereafter until his time comes to die, nnd then he can think of noth ing else. The race horse takes no pride In a race. He would much prefer to re main at home discussing the merits of his oats. Special Interest will follow the ca reers of those two Chinese youths who were In the graduating class at West Point this year, and who now go back home to play the part of leaven in the lump of the Celestial Empire's army. The weight of medical opinion has been steadily against Dr. Koch, the great German physician, In his con tention that tuberculosis in cnttlo is a different dlseaso from tuberculosis in human beings, and cannot be trans mitted from one to the other. Unex pected light has been thrown upon the matter by a sad occurrence which happened at tho government experi ment station nt Dethesda, Md. Sev eral children of employes of the sta tion died under circumstances which made an autopsy desirable It was found that doath had been caused by tuberculosis of tho glands of the neck and tho Intestines. Further Investi gation disclosed the fact that tho milk on which they had been fed came from certain cows supposed to be healthy, but found on examination to be afflicted exactly as the children were, with tuberculosis of the neck and Intostlnes. The fact, although not conclusive, Is against the opinion of Dr. Koch. Moro and more la manual labor be ing displaced by machinery. Take it on tho farms in the United States, for Instance. Seed potatoes are now cut and planted by machinery. A self feeder on the threshing machine dis places two men. Blast stackers and gasoline engines as applied in agricul ture fnvo abolished the constant an nual labor of 150,000 men. Tho hand shearer has been sup planted by a machine on stock farms IK'laVeaBBBBBBBBBBBB iv-:ii..TTal M '''gteaaaa(aBaaaaai fpi,- 'ggggggflraBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBi 'HBaaaaaaaaaaaH 'dBBBBBBBBBaOaaBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBi ' '' .aaBBBBBBBBBBBBWBHBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB .iKdA MERRITT W. PINOKNEY, Able and Highly Respected Judge of the Circuit that makes 3,000 clips per minute. The combined header and thresher with a crew of five men can do the work that the old stylo machine re quired twenty men to do, and yet even the old style machine could do the work of COO hand scythes and flails. Shelling corn used to give many thousands a chance to earn an honest living a few dollars, at any rate; It required a good worker to shell five bushels a day, but now two men with a machine can shell 1,500 bushels a day. It required a swift worker to gin five pounds of cotton, but now two men with a machine will turn out 4,000 pounds; a day. On of the remarkable Inventions of the century Is the derrick pontoon that loads and unloads coal at sea ports, making thousands of manual laborers unnecessary. The new de vice has nine hydraulic grabs, which grab down Into the hold of a vessel, pull coal, weigh and register It and drop It through chutes on to barges and railroad cars. It can handle 6,000 tons dally. Down South a machine Is coming into general uso that plants tobacco, cotton and other products. A largo planter is authority for the statement that with the cheap iron slave a profit can be made with 5-cent cotton. The manufacturing 'of boots and shoes offers some very wonderful facts In the matter, of displacement of human labor. In one large and long established manufacturing plant In an Eastern State the proprietor testified that it would require 600 persons working by hand processes to make as many women's boots and shoes as 100 persons now make with tho aid of machinery, a displacement of manual labor of 80 per cent. In another class of the same Industry the number of men required to produce a given quan tity of boots and shoes has been re duced one-half. One operator can now stitch 1,000 pairs of shoes a day; In the old days It required a very fast worker to sew six pairs a day. "In the present era of preventive medicine and educational methods in culcating the lessons of right living there are few diseases but show a de crease In tho mortality rate," declares Dr. John A. McGllnn, assistant pro fessor of gynecology In the Medico Chlrurglcnl Hospital of Philadelphia. "Cancer Is, perhaps, of all others, the one dlseaso which shows a pro gressive Increase, and which is likely to continue to progress, inasmuch as wo know practically nothing definite of its cause and consequently cannot in any way lessen materially its fre Chicago and Oak Park Elevated Railroad Company TO AUSTIN, OAK PARK, FOREST PARK AND RIVER FOREST.

Except those who have studied Its ravages, few, perhaps, realize what a scourge this most dreadful disease Is." Cancer Is It not synonymous with the plague! Few hear of cases about them. Women who suffer from It con ceal the affliction, many, Indeed, actu ated by a false modesty, hesitating even to consult physicians. And yet, like a sore long hidden, it has eaten Its way Into the heart of humanity, carrying off thousands upon thou sands. Probably you will be surprised to learn how many people die of cancer. "In 1901, In the registration area of the United States, which represent: ed a population of 31,292,130, there died 20.171 persons of cancer," said Dr. McQllnn. "This represents a mortality rate of 64.5 per 100.000 of population. Of a population of 40,996,317 In 1906, the deaths numbered 29,020, a rate of 70.8 per 100,000 of population. In six years there was an Increase of 6.3 per 100, 000." The deaths from cancer In the Uni ted States, startling as they are, are given as follows: In 1901, 20,171; 1902, 20,847: 1903, 22,325; 1004, 23, 395; 1905, 24,330, and In 1906, 29,020. "Compared with a dlseaso like tuberculosis, those figures are not so startling," says Dr. McOlinn, "unless we realize that tuberculosis kills at all ages, but practically all deaths from cancer occur after the age of 361" A comparison of the death rate from cancer In the different countries is In teresting. The annual average death rate per 100,000 population, from 1901 to 1905, shows that Switzerland leads In the mortality, the rate being 129.1. Next the Netherlands shows the larg est mortality, the rate being 97.4. England and Wales show a rate of 86.5, and the United States, 68.3. With tho exception of Austria, New Zealand, South Australia, Tasmania and Ceylon, all countries from which figures are obtainable show an In crease In the rate. That cancer Is more largely a dis ease of women Is shown by figures compiled In England, which In 1905 showed that the rate per 100,000 was 75.6 per men and 100.6 for women. Compared with tuberculosis, the rate for men showed 134.7, and women 95.7. Dr. McQllnn, who has made a study of the statistics of cancer In the Uni ted States, declares that most deaths from the disease are due to cancer of the stomach and liver. Of 140,088 deaths which occurred from 1901 to 1906, 51.398 died or this affection. Of the number, nearly 35,000 died of can cerous affections peculiar to women. A Ml) SEME NTS.
