exercises that will correct some per

The distinguished educator, Mr. C.

WHY CONGRESS HATES
The New York Evening Post sum
marizes the reasons why congress
shows such intense-hatred of lloose
velt as follows:
"It Is in a word that Congress does
not believe in President Roosevelt's
moral sincerity. It thinks him hypo
critical. He has lectured it and the
country on truthfulness, yet nine out
of ten Congressmen fcelieve Mr,
Roosevelt himself to be habitually
untruthful. He has posed as a cham
pion of fair play, yet Congressmen
believe him to fight foul. The
ture him as living in and delighting
in an atmosphere of suspicion, in
trigue and calumny.
His talk of the square deal they
scoff at as sheer pretense. They say
that he protects favorites, such as
Paul Morton and the Steel Corpora
tion, while furiously prosecuting his
enemies or those whom he thinks
he can make political capital by at
tacking. hi short, Congress Is
thoroughly convinced that all the su^
perior moral exhortation Wihich it has
had from President Roosevelt has
some from a man who allows in him

DEPARTMENT ON TUBERCULOSIS
BOARD OF CONTROL OF STATE
Eradicatio'n of Tuberculosis. Trained
Health Officers Essential. Diag
nosis Must be Early/
.Moines, January 15—Though
very much him been done to educate
the people of our state with reference
to tuberculosis as a prnventable di
sease, yet but desultory and feeble
effort has been made along prevent
ive lines. .Much has been said and
written concerning the control and
final eradication of tuberculosis
which has been "inspired by but sup^
erflclal Investigation. Tuberculosis
is a disease of the masses and any
method to combat It must incorporate
a reformation of our present social
conditions. Tuberculosis is a result"
of conditions in modern life which
weaken physical resistance of the hiu
man body and prepare a fertile flek*'
fcr the cultivation of the seeds of (8
eease and death. Some of the devit
alizing influences in modern society,
which must be reckoned with ar#
overcrowding in centers of popula
tion due to increased cost of living,
overwork, and underfeeding—espec
ially in mothers and children—uneaA
itary, illventilated and uuwholesomi
sipatlou. Poverty and want induce
this disease with reckless abandon.
That the education of the masses
on the, transmlssable character ol'
tuberculosis is an exceedingly im
portant thing cannot be doubted. It
is preliminary and necessary to any
well defined action. It is, metaphor
ically speaking, the marshalling and
massing of fighting forces jn aggres
sive combat against the disease. But
it little matters what a splendid army
we may have at our command, if we
do not crush the enemy in his strong
hold. We may in a desultory way
here and there win an occasional vic
tory, but so long as society tolerates
conditions as they are today, tuber
culosis will recruit its forces indefi
nitely. Any scheme of combat there
fore which does not involve social
reformation must in the very nature
.o' things prove abortive.
As a step preliminary to the final
eradication of tuberculosis, registra
tion of all persons suffering from
this disease, is -believed to be the
most important. Such registration in
no wlsa contemplates the publicity ot
the name or residence of afflicted
persons. Indeed health officers alone
would have charge of such records
and the records would never be open
to public inspection under severe pen
alty. Both Maryland and New York
have such laws which have proven
valuable and efficient. It is not ar
gued here that laws applicable to
those eastern states would be avail
able for Iowa, but the necessity for
the control of our tuberculosis pop
ulation cannot be a subject of ser
Such a registration law would oper
ate to change the social conditions
which now perpetuate tuberculo-iis it
would establish visiting nurses "as
sociations and day camps it would
build retreats and sanatoriums and
care for the consumptive "at the
right time, in the right place and iii
the right way," thus robbing this di
sease of much of its terror.
Moreover such registration would
secure the early recognition of thi«
disease. It would bring to the task
lealth officers especially trained in
the pathological changes of early tu
berculosis men skilled In the tech
nique of diagnosis and treatment
men with a broad general understand
ing of scientific and efficient meth
ods men of culture, sympathy, honor,
and good judgment.
In the treatment of tuberculosis the
method must originate with the phy
sician, but in any event if the con
sumptive Is to get well lie must have
the knowledge and experience of a
vcl trained physician. At this time
early detection, registration, and hos

FREIGHT CAR SERVICE.
On account of the commencement
of immigration traffic to the west
and other parts of the country, rail
rrads are rushing freight cars to
their various divisions to supply«the
increased demand. While accommo
dations are frequently denied ship
pers, yet for the most part, the rail
ways are able to furnish satisfactory
service. Box cars are more scarce
than those in which "stock are hauled.
The UG-foot car is oftentimes more
desirable than the 33-foot car. The

MILITARY DRILLS IN COLLEGES
The government assigns to. each of
nearly one hundred colleges in the
United States an officer, active or re
tired, from the regular army, to con
duct the cadet corps drills and rifle
practices. It also makes appropria
tions for supplies and ammunition.
Reports indicate that military train
ing in the various colleges is making
no progress. A lack of discipline la
noticed by the inspectors, and no pro
vision is made for rifle range prac
tice. The state papers have taken
the matter up, and declares that in
stead of foot ball teams and fra
ternities, the High schools should
have their cadet corps and be in
structed in marching movements and
CHURCH TRIAL AT TAMA.
Charges have been preferred
against Rev. J. B. Wyatt of Kenwood
Park, a well known minister., in the
Upper Iowa conference of the Meth
odist Episcopal church. The hearing
was made Thursday at Tama before
Dr. W. F. Pitner, superintendent of
the Marshalltown district, and for
merly pa&tor of the Methodist church
ut Manchester. Three ministers al
lege that Rev. Mr. Wyatt did not
pay his just debts, and among these
luuking the charge was Rev. C. \V.
Rogers of Strawberry Point. Rev.
H. O. Pratt of Tama, also a former
pastor of the church in this city, was
cno of the jurors before whom the
trial tf&s heard.
BOSTON DISLIKES THE COMIC.
The decision of the Boston Herald
to abandon its comic supplement pub
lished with the'Sunday issue, renews
the discussion of this journalistic pol
icy. The paper explains editorially
that "a great newspaper no longer
needs a clown'' and states that the
comic supplements have ceased to be
comic. "They have become as vulgar
In design as they are tawdy in color.
There Is no longer any semblence of
art in them, and if there are any
ideas, they are low and descending
lower" adds the Herald.
ONE ON PAT..
The Independence Conservative is
authority for this story: Martin
Sheeley, a popular Illinois Central
brakeman, tells of the following con
versation between two Irish section
hands at a station between Manches
ter and Waterloo. They were in a
car house during the noon hour and
engaged in a friendly game of poker.
Pat drew a card. Mike said: "Yeze
drew a spade." "How the divil d'ye
nnfi know it was a spade?" asked Pat
with "Because I saw ye spit OH yer hands
