" Four years ago I was very lick and my life was nearly spent. 1 he doctors stated that I would never get well with out an operation and that without it 1 would not live one year. My husband objected to any operation and got me some of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegeta ble Compound. 1 took It and commenced to get better and am now well, am stout and able to do my own housework. I can recommend the Vegetable Com pound to any woman who is sick and run down as a wonderful strength and health restorer. My husband says I would have been in my grave ere this if it had not been for your Vegetable Compound. " -Mrs. Blanche Jeffer son, 703 Lyon St, Des Moines, Iowa.

In order to raise the necessary funds for the purchase of site, construction of build ings, equipment, etc., it has been pro posed to impose on each county an assessment of six per centum of the annual tax levy, wblch would create in the Seventh District about $32,000.00 The levy for each couffiy would be as follows: Boone ' $2,149.58 Bracken i 1,147.66 Campbell 7.689.19 Carroll 993.64 Gallatin 426.38 Grant . . .

Wi find that 6000 men, women and chil dren die every year in Kentucky from tuberculosis, while 40,000 others are affected with the disease, many of ; whom will pass away In a few years unless some radical steps are taken for their care and treatment Although a large amount of edu cational and publicity work has been done by the State Tuberculosis Com mission during the past few years, lit tle has been accomplished toward the construction of suitable sanatoria, es aerially for the tuberculosis poor, who are to be fi u:id In ! ir (a unbefl throughout the state. Many of tliesr unfortunates, who are suffering from the disease in the advanced stage, are living with their families, live or six in number, in huts or hovels of one or two rooms. Since the disease is very Contagiosa In this stage the entire family ultimately becomes infected. Tlie criminal plan for the construc tion of county tuberculosis sanatoria has been practically abandoned as im practical in a large number of the counties for -financial reasons. As a substitute, the Commissioners have re cently authorized the division of the state into nine tuberculosis santorium districts, each district to contain from twelve to fifteen counties. From prac tical experience it has been found that the smallest sanatorium district should have the support of a population of L'OO.OOO or 300,000 people in order to make it a financial succcbs. The nine districts have been ar ranged with reference to their popula tion, size, wealth geographical posl- 'tion and facilities for water and rail road transportation. The following table will show the population, assess ed property valuation, annual county tax levy, deaths and remaining cases from tuberculosis for 1915 of the twelve counties comprising the Sev enth Tuberculosis Sanatorium Dis trict: County Tax law) S 35.826 43 19,126.14 128.163.27 16,560.75 7.106.44 19.429.38 42.875.27 164,897.30 54,543.52 16,831.47 21,479.47 6,631.11 Deaths 17 34 146 19 11 . 23 49 186 68 19 26 16 Cases 119 22C 1022 133 161 341 1302 40C m 182 111 Robertson 331.86 The cost of annual maintenance to each couuty will depend upon the lumber of cases each county sends te the sanatorium, aud Its economics management. It Is more than proba ble (hat the smaller counties of the district will not be required to send more than twenty or twenty-five cases each year, which should not entail an annual expenditure of more than two or three thousand dollars The management of the sanatorium, selection of superintendent aud em ployees will be left to the Board of Trustees, which will be composed of representatives from each county. The people of Kentucky will watch with great lutereat the results of the Covington Convttutlou, since it is the most important movement of its kind ever minuted ill the State Besides the county delegates, the Governor of the Statu, members of the Hoard of Com missioners and other distinguished cltlsens of Kentucky interested in the fight against the Great White Plague will be present. lUII iMLL bUUUd At the New York Store dust arrived, the most complete slock of Lad tea1 VnV Hals (lint we ever carried.
