PAGE THREK. FLUSH SEWERS TO RECOVERY'S BODY Nine Year Old Joseph Plenty Falls Into New York Man hole and Drowns. 9,000,000 GALLONS LET OUT BODY It CARRIED A HALF MILE BY RUSH OF WATER UNDER CITY STREETS SEARCHED ALL DAY FOR MISSING YOUTH. New York. Oct. 12 The body of nine-year-old Joseph Plenty, who on Saturday afternoon tumbled Into the "blowoff pipe" or emergency outlet of the Highbridgo aqueduct In High bridge park, near One-hundred-and-seventy-aecond street, wai found yea terady on the floor of the big water main beneath One-hundred-and-fifty-ninth street. To recover the body It was nece nary to draw off nine million gallons of water from tho old Croton aque duct by closing the upper gates and allowing the water to drain off down to the One-hundredand-and-thlrty-fifth street gate house. The boy, who lived at 604 West One hundred and fifty-ninth street, lost his life when playing Indian with some other children. He crawled Into the open shaft leading down Into the drain to hide, and then slipped Into the rushing water. His body was carried balf a mile before It caught on the rough brick bottom of t.he main. Draining, An All Day Task. It took all day to drain off the wa ter in the Hlghbrtdge section of the aqueduct. At 7 o'clock the water was measured and found to bo four feet six Inches deep. Two hours later It was measured again. It had fallen to two feet and five Inches, whereupon a gang of men in charge of division engineer Dlake, of the water depart ment, ventured In. The searchers carried torches, rakes and grappling irons, and sounded the bottom of the main every few feet as they went long. They reached the end of the aque duct without finding any trace of the boy. Then they got a twent-foot lad dar and went down Into the main aqueduct, where they found a depth of about three feet of water, running like a mill-race. It was all the men could do to keep their feet as they groped their way through the black darkness. Toy Drum First Clew. At One-hundred-and-seventy-flrst treet they found a toy drum the boy had carried when he fell 'Into the main. They knew they were on the right track then and went rapidly un til they came upon the body. They carried the body back to where they bad left the ladder and when they reached the bead of the old Croton aqueduct they were nearly exhausted, as they had to fight their way against the swift current every Inch of the going. The body was taken to the One-hundred-and-flfty-second street police station And the child's mother was notified of its re covery. ENGINEERS MEETING (Amarlcan News Service.) Erie, Pa., Oct 12.

Used Cuti cura Soap and Ointment and was Completely Cured. "My mother had a red spot on her tight hand which began to grow worse rapiuiy. t n neign bors said it was a tetter. She got some medicine from a doe tor, but it did not do any good. In about a week the tetter be gan to break out on her arm too. She uned Ave or six differ ent kinds of liniments and three different kinds of aalv. Not one of thee did her a particle of good. Her band and arm would burn and itch so much that she could harlly sleep at night. Her hand was that way for about eleven months. Finally a friend of ours recommended Cuueura Soap and Ointment to us. Sha bought some immediately and began to tue it. She washed her hand and arm with Cuticura Soap and warm water. Then she applied the Cuticura Ointment and bandaged her hand up. The neat morning w all noticed a great improvement. Before she had lined a half of a box of Ointment and a very little Soap her band was completely cured. Now her hand is as well as ever. I think Cuticura Soap and Ointment is the greatest skin remedy ever discovered. C. E. Canady, San Leandro, Cal.. Mar. 7. 1910."

CHICHKTERLU t HI illill 1 f SOB IT KDGttSTS EVEBWatt FOR HEALTH LIVE III HARMLESS DIRT Washington Physician Says That to Die Young Use Bath Tub Frequently. SHUNS THE DAILY BATH THINKS MEDICAL FRATERNITY WILL EVENTUALLY REALIZE INFANT PARALYSIS IS DUE TO WATER. Washington. Oct. 12. Minter P. Key, well known in this city believes physicians will find a reason for the present epidemic of infant paralysis if they seek the bath tub for it. Mr. Key believes that many an infant has been stricken by the malady be cause of too frequent application of water in efforts made by the mother in trying to keep the child clean. Dirt thinks Mr. Key, is harmless and con trary to generally accepted theories of the medical profession, water is deadly if dallied with too freely.' Adults too, have suffered In the past from too liberal applications of water in the bath tub, and many a man or woman, according to Mr. Key, con tratced a fatal malady by overween ing fondness for ablutions. Prefers Dirt to Death. Mr. Key, bo he says believes that it is much better to live long and dirty rather than to die young and clean. Mr. Key said: "About twenty-five years ago, while convalescent from a spell of pneu monia in a hospital in this city and while discussing with the matron the many ways by which cold and many other ills may occur, she told me of the low state of health that she had been in for several years and that her physician was at a loss to diagnose her malady or cure her. "He finally inquired about her per sonal habits, especially in regard to bathing. With much pride she told of her luxurious morning bath and one. too, she took before going to bed, besides other frequent dabblings in water. He at once advised her to use but little water at a time and at as long intervals as possible to keep clean, and above all, keep out of the bath tub, since which time 6he has been in good health. "Notwitstanding my frequent bad colds, I did not quit my morning bath until I left the hospital the third time on account of an attack of pneumonia and then not until I read an account of one of our good citizens having just died in the bath tub. Many Stricken in Bath Tub. "By examining newspaper files for the last twenty years you will be pro foundly astonished at the' large num ber of persons, especially of the well-to-do class who have been stricken with paralysis while bathing, to say nothing of those who have been found dead in their bath rooms. "For several years I have believed that thousands of infants have been killed by too much bathing, especially at improper times. If, therefore a mother does not use good judgment in this matter, it will be wise to let her child do like the healthy savage live long in dirt rather than die young and clean."

AWFUL PAINS FULLY DESCRIBED A Lady of Pizarro Tells Story of Awful Suffering That Cardui Finally Relieved. - i Pizarro, Va. "I suffered for several rears," writes Mrs. Dorma . A. Smith, ''with that awful backache and the bear, ingdown sensations, so fully described in your book. "I tried doctors and other medicines and found little relief, until I was induced to try Wine of Cardui. when 1 found in stant relief and today 1 can heartily recommend Cardui to all suffering women and thnk there is no other as good." In some instances, Cardui gives instant relief; in others, it may take a little time. But in all cases of female trouble Cardui can be depended on to be of benefit, as it is a specific remedy for women and acts in a curative way on the womanly organs. As a general tonic for women, to build up your strength, improve your appe tite, bring back rosy cheeks and make you look and feel young and happy, nothing you can find will do so much for you as Cardui.

NOT SINGLE DEATH IN YEAR Salem.N. J., Oct 12. Surgeon Chas. S. McDonald, stationed at Fort Mott, 6ix miles from Salem, has a vaccine which has been used on 35,000 soldiers in the United States army as a pre ventative of typhoid fever and has yet no record of a case developing after inoculation. During the past year Doctor Mac Donald has been experimenting on the soldiers at the fort. The inocula tion is entirely optional with the sol dier and the operation is attended by little pain. Before Dr. MacDonald, who Is an authority on typhoid fever, began experimenting with the new vaccine, there were fifteen deaths a year from this disease at Fort Mott. "Last year," Doctor MacDonald. "there was not a death from typhoid at the Fort. Not only many of the men in the ranks in the Forty-second and 13Sth companies, coast artillery, but also their wives and children were inoculated before going to the Philippines, and, although I subjected them to the severest test and gave them every chance to contract the di sease, not one case was reported. Nor has one case developed in the 35,000 inoculated. The vaccine is very ex pensive, but when once inoculated all the typhoid germs in the typhoid zone can have no effect or live in that per son.

Mr. Aley has stud led he question chiefly from the standpoint of the school, and will probably recommend in his report to the Governor, a law patterned after that enacted in Ohio by the last gener al assembly of that state. The Ohio law provides that no child under sixteen years of age shall be regularly employed unless he obtains a certificate showing the completion of the fifth grade In the schools of the state, while any child of fourteen years or over who has completed the eighth grade in the common schools may be employed under proper con ditions.
