BRAZIL ITS RICHNESS
ANDJNDUSTRIES
A New Book Setting Forth Its Politi
cal and Industrial Development
Few persons are aware of the extreme
richness of the United States of Brazil,
the largest and most important of the
South American republics, and to sup
ply full historical and industrial infor
mation, the government of that country
has had prepared a voluminous work in
two volumes which is fhort'y to make
its appearance in English.
In 1905, the Brazilian Minister of
Means, Transportation, Industry and
Public. Works ordered the preparation of
this work, and it was accomplished after
three years' arduous labor under the di
rection of Dr. Vieira Souto, Professor
Df the Polytechnic School of Rio de
.Janiero, and at present Director of the
Mission of Economic Expansion with
offices in Paris, France. The work was
first published in Portuguese, then trans
lated into French, and has just been pre
pared afresh in English It is in two
volumes of 1,000 pages each, copiously
illustrated.
The work describes in detail the ex
traordinary rapidity with which the po
litical and industrial de\ :-!opment of
the country has. gone forward
in the section devoted to the conquer
of the soil, it reads like :, great ro
mance of adventure. The manner in
which Brazil has taken hold of and
lolved her question of public health
might serve as a lesson to the rations,
for she has driven out the yellow fever
scourge completely, bringing her mor
tality tables down far below those of any
European city. The Rio de Janeiro fig
ore now standing at 207, the European
iverage running to 268.
Within the space of 34 years the pop
ulation of Brazil has gone UP from some
10,000,000 to over 22,0r0,000, an increase
Df over one hundred per cent. In IQO3,
her oxports were 185 millions, and four
v-ears later had risen to 272 millions,
livery phase of industry has gone for
ward rapidly, and the great republic
with 150,000 square miles more territory
than the United States, is coming rap-
Idly to the front among the nations for
her richness of resource is almost be
rond belief. The new book *ill be ready
lor distribution within a few weeks.

WOMAN SUES BEAUTY DOCTORS;

David Steel.- and his wife, Ger

LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MOHNJNG, MARCH t. 1010.
SPEAKER CANNON
youth could be restored to the sagging
Mrs. Dv Bois said she wanted sev
eral liver spot! and a number of wrin
kles removed from her face, and she
submitted to the treatment. Her de
sire to changs her appearance was
owing to a contemplated visit to her
old home, where she wanted to surprise
her girlhood friends with the beauty
acquired in California.
The effect of the treatment was all
that could be desired—at first. This
was evident from a letter written by
Mrs. Dv Bois to the facial landscape
artists, in which she said: "I am just
In love with my chin. I have to look
at it every time I pass a mirror. It
balances my fa< c beautifully."
But, she testified, the improved np
pearance was only transient, for within
a (aw weeks the filled in flesh became
linrdened and lumps formed and still
remain. She lost her eyebrows and
suffers considerable pain, she said.
The Steeles asserted Mrs. Dv Bois
was responsible for her own appear
ance, that she hid manipulated her
cheeks and chin after the treatment
had been administered for no other
reason than to extort money.
"It Is out of the question that any
woman would deliberately disfigure
herself In this permanent way for the
chance of recovering the small amount
<.f damages asked In this case," said
Judge Hutton, as he gave judgment
lor Mrs. Dv Hols.

the opinion was unanimous Hial honors

given by the president to "Uncle Joe,"
said to be tha tiwt formal affair ever
accorded a speaker of the house by a

The dinner ended, the company went
to the cast room, which boasts an
ample and smooth .lancing lloor. An

TRUTH ABOUT YUMA IS
BEING TOLD TO THRONGS
The truth about Yuma and the pos
sibilities of the productiveness of the
lands surrounding it are being pre
sented to large crowds daily at the
Peck-Judah company lecture room, 553
i South Spring street, by a series of
1 Illustrated lectures delivered by S. E.
Epler, secretary Yuma County Com
mercial club.
The lecture deals in full with nil
lands under the Yuma Project, includ
ing the Indian reservation lands that
were thrown open to entry March 1.
and which have been th»cause of much
adverse comment as to the manner in
which the registration and filing were
made.
There are eighty-five colored trans
parencies of the Colorado river through
the Grand Canyon of Ariaona to the
arid lands of the new southwest.
The Commercial club of Yuma has
undertaken this work that the public
generally may become acquainted with
the real conditions existing in that ter
ritory; for while there is, plenty of
good country available for fanning
purposes, it must not be overlooked
lhat the cost of bringing much of it
into a rtate of fruition will be more
than many homeseekers with limited
capital can afford, and it Is to prevent
any adverse criticisms from those who
go there, without knowing the condi
tions, only to be disappointed and then
n turning to other sections will have
no good word for Yuma or the district.
In many cases it will be cheaper for
prospective settlors to purchase some
..l the new lands outright from repu
table realty dealers, for the most of
such lands have water on them al
ready developed.
These lectures begin each evening at
8 o'clock and will be continued daily
up to and Including March 7.
