Magnitude of a Public Work-Ad-
dress of Mrs. John h. judge.
Million in Tenements.
At a nuv-ting of the f:x-iviv f
To-
iitic-a Study, says the New York Sun,
at Genealogical Hall, 22J West Fifty
eighth street, Mrs. T. St. John Gaffaey
presided, and introduced the speaker
of the day, Mrs. John H. .Judge, who
ivad a paper on the Health Depart
ment. j "The grandest word in our lan
j guage," said Mrs. Judge, "is our word
j health. We may gain riches, but with
out healih we have nothing; it is the
golden treasure, once lost, seldom re
covered. The health of the nation is
the health of the individual, and there
fore we have come in this country to
a. realization that each community
must have its Board of Health to reg
ulate and keep sound the body of the
individual. The definition of health
which appeals to me as most satisfac
tory is that it is soundness of the
body; a normal bodily condition. Good
health is change; bad health is mo
noionv." Thp'snkof nt i-Bt,,i
owe the foundation of the Health De
partment, and stated that in this coun
try attention was directed to the mat
ter of public health in 1S50 by a print
ed report, written by Samuel Shattuck
of .Massachusetts, a layman, in -which
was set forth details about health and
sanitary conditions and pleading for
the concerted efforts of State Boards
of Health.
She spoke at length of the Sanitary
Commission, which operated during
the civil war and which was founded
by a small body of New York women
in Cooper Union. Mrs. Judge con
tinued: "When I reflect that in Greater New
York we have 3, 200,000 persons, of
whom about 1,200,000 are native born,
900.000 Germans, 850,000 Irish, 200,000
English and Scotch, 170,000 Russians.
Poles and Austrians, mostly Hebrews,
the question of how to keep them clean
staggers me. But not so our Board of
Health, for through its perfectly or
ganized plans these people are kept in
check and their general health better
than in their native countries. The
health of New York is better than that
of any other city in the world. The
most important feature in this city's
growth affecting the Health Depart
ment is the tenement house. There,
at this time, live 1,000,000 'people" who
require and receive careful supervision.
The new conditions arising are met as
they come up. Not many years hence
the people will bless this generation
for the thoughtfulness expressed
through our Health Boards.
"The next immediate and great re
form should be in keeping our rivers
and streams free from pollution which
is constantly pouring into them. The
smallest stream in the country place is
looked upon as a natural sewer and our
country gentlemen have an elaborate
system of pipes and valves in their
homes on th hill slopes, directed into
a drain which is laid to the nearest
stream, and so on until the metropolis
is met, and there at the foot of every
few streets is a vent for delivering in
to the waters which surround our city
the sewerage of our houses. The
cities on the Hudson do as we do. Still
we consume the ice which is .harvested
in winter from this body of polluted
water. Look at New York, cur water-
encircled city. The circles should be
as pure as they were hundreds of
years ago and not the band of dirty,
dark, polluted liquid such as we see
now. Look at the Harlem river. It is
a huge sewer, and when the flats are
bare -at low tide what a sight is pre-
sented and what a warning givon us
i The turning of this river into a ship
! eanal to be deepened and maue a fast-
flowing body of water will help but not
cure. The problem of burning all must
be solved at once. The first cost
i should not prevent us from doing this
j at once.
"Our Health Department cannot ac
complish its great work alone. Every
citizen must put forth his and her in
dividual effort to obey the sanitary
laws of life and of the board. We must
keep our authorities posted on what
we know is for the general good. We
must look to it that our own household
is in a sanitary condition. The Health
Department of this city owes more to
the Woman's Health Protective Asso
ciation than to any other organization
or body, and it is proud to acknowledge
that indebtedness, and when its mem
bers appear before that body they re-
; ceive the closest attention and their
j views are acted upon."
! Mrs. Judge concluded with the fol-
j lowing tribute to Col. Waring:
j "The Health Protective Association
has had close contact with the Street
Cleaning Department, a close ally to
j the Health Department, and there we
Sir 50 j met the greatest of men, who has late
j ly laid down his life in his efforts to
i tell us how to preserve our health and
: life. We have all read Ins wonderful
j reports on the systems of the world to
j better the cleanliness of our cities and
marvelled at his keen conception of
conditions and his mastery of them.
New York City owes more to the late
Col. Waring for its health and wealth,
it? brightness and comfort, than to any
other person: and this society will not
i let this day pass without its word in
his honorable memory."
Mrs. Judge's reference to Col. War
ing was greeted with applause.

Possibilities of Use of Fibre for
Tine Cloth.
In an article :i - Toijlo FlW-r In
dustries of the United Scales," in Ap
pix'iuii's Popular Scu-ru-e Monthly iNu-veaiht-r).
C. R. Dodge- tells us that the
i.'o.f of the pineapple contains a ry
line silky ii Ik r that may L utilized in
the manufacture of texiie fabrics. He
says: "A pineapple plant matures but
one apple m a season, and after the
harvest of fruit the old 1-avts are of
no further use to the plant, and may
be removed. The leaves have the
same structural system as the agaves
that is. they are composed of a cel
lular ma.-3 mrough which the fibers
extend, and when the epidermis and
pulpy matter are eliminated the resi
due is a ;oft. silk-like filament, th-e
value of which has long been recog
nized. Only fifty pounds of this fiber
can be obtained from a ton of leaves,
but .as the product would doubtless
command double the price of Sisal
hemp, its production would Ue profit
able. How to secure this fiber cheaply
is the problem. The Sisal hemp ma
chines are too rough in action for so
fine a fiber, and, at the rate of ten
leaves to the pound, working up a ton
of the material would mean the handl
ing of over twenty thousand leaves
to secure perhaps three dollars' worth
of the commercial product. Were the
fiber utilized in the arts, however, and
its place established, it would com
pete in a measure with flax as a spin
ning fiber, for its filaments are divisi
ble to the thousandth of an inch.
The substance has already been utiliz
ed to a slight extent in Eastern coun
tries (being hind-prepared) in the
manufacture of costly, filmy, cobweb
like fabrics that will almost float in
air.
It is folly to suffer from that hor
rible plague of the night, itching
piles. Doan's Ointment cures, quick
ly and permanently. At. any chemist's.

A NEWSY ITEM.
An Incident From Canton "Which "Will
Interest Headers.
When a man has lived in Canton, O.,
for nearly half a century, only leaving
that city on a business or pleasure trip,
during that time, except four years
that he followed "Old Glory" in the
late unpleasantness: when he strolled
around the city when it contained less
hundreds of population than it now
does thousands; when his reputation
for honesty and veracity are unques
tioned, it is not asking too much of
Canton people to believe what he says.
Such a man is John Rittersbaugh, of
No. 5S Lawrence Avenue, painter, dec
orator and respected citizen of Canton.
Read what he said to our representa
tive: "I enlisted in the Nineteenth
regiment, Co. A, Ohio Volunteers, and
served in it during the Civil War for
four years and three months. Since
then I have been troubled with kidney
complaint, the hardships and expos
ure endured no doubt being the cause
of it. My back has ached so severely
that I have had to give up everything
and go home, no matter how much
work I had on my hands. When
stooping over I could hardly straight
en up, with catches in the small of the
back or kidneys that were so sharp
that they caused me to sink down.
And accompanying this there was a
distressing and annoying urinary
weakness. I have taken medicines for
it of various kinds, but without any
lasting benefit. At last I tried Doan's
Backache Kidney Pills. What I had
heard and read induced me to use
them. Now I can say to myself, and
have the proof for it, all the old
symptoms have passed away, and I am
feeling first class, and gaining weight,
and my appetite is better than it has
been for years." Just such emphatic
endorsement can be had right here at
home.
Drop into the nearest drug store and
see what the druggist's customers re
port to him.
Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are
sold for 50 cents per box, or 6 boxes
for $2.50, by all dealers, or will be for
warded by mail to any address on re
ceipt of price by the Hollister Drug
Co., Ltd., Honolulu, agents for the
