ULMAR, .... COLORADO. The Fight Against Consumption. Great comfort is to be derived from the census figures relative to the mor tality rates for tho last few years. It appears from these statistics that tu berculosis is causlirg a markedly smaller percentage of deaths at present than formerly. Indicating a certain de gree of success in the fight against the “great white plaugue" which is being waged in all parts of this country. The statistics unfortunately cover only ten of the states and 334 cltle3, owing to the lack of organized systems of recording and reporting In all parts of the United States. These states ari Connecticut. Indiana, Maine, Massa chusetts, Michigan. New Hampshire New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Ver mont. nnd these, together with the cities In other states which carefully preserve death records constitute n population of 34.000,000, or two-fifths of that of the United States. Accord ing to the returns from these sources the latest calculable rate of mortal ity from consumption wns 172.fi nor 100,000 of population. In 1890 the rate wns 245.4. This diminution, says tho Washington Star, is likely to progress more rapidly in the future, for most of the work of public education In comhntlng the disease has been done (luring the last decade, and is largely fundamental. The good result of the local propaganda in behalf of clean living, good, fresh air, thorough sani tation. nnd. to a certain extent, segre gation of consumptives, is Just begin ning to be felt. The warfare against consumption is proceeding along two brond lines, prevention nnd cure. Tho former Is being waged by both physi cians and laymen, nnd Is an educa tional work. The latter is strictly scientific and the results are less dis tinct, because they are observable chiefly by the members of the medlcnl profession. The real problem of to day lies in teaching the people two prime facts—that consumption Is com municable and that Its communication can he prevented by the observance of certain simple rules of hygiene and cleanliness. Dyed Food and Clothing. While the use of coal tar chemicals in our food Is being gradually sup pressed. they nre playing a more con spicuous role In the manufacture of our apparel. It was toward the end of the last decade that the Germans began to make the artificial indigo which has almost driven the natural product from the market. A more re cent discovery is that of red indigo, made by Prof. Frledlntfcler In Vienna. Chemically, this new substance Is al most identical with blue Indigo; the firm that manufactures It has given it the name of theoindigorot (thelon being the Greek name for sulphur, one of the Ingredients). The most Inter esting fact relating to It Is that It has been found to be identical with the Tyrian purple of the ancients, which, according to Pliny, the Phoenicians made out of a sea shell. This was so expensive that It cost S3OO in modern money to color one kilogram of wool. To-day. the garments once monopo lized by Roman emperors are worn by Austrian cavalrymen, and the German army Is preparing to make use of theiondigorot in order to deepen the color of certain uniforms. Women, also, nre already benefiting by the re discovery of "Tyrian purple.” The red Indigo is made in various shades, from deep pomegranate to the most delicate colors to garments of diverse material, including even calico. Proof Against Burglars. Ninety-three million years is the time given to unlock a safe which Is fastened with the wonderful new lock Invented In Jamaica. The combina tion consists of four sets of 24 let *tcrs of the alphabet which can be set to a sentence In most modern lan guages. When one letter Is used In one alphabet and another in a second set nnd so on. it becomes a most com plicated matter. Then there is the Initial problem of which language it has been keyed In. to he solved by the man that attempts to open the safe. Furthermore, instead of letters the Inventor, one Neuman Tobias, has employed four sets of numerals. As suming that the lock has been set to a figure in the number of 3.030.303.- 030.303,030. it would take anyone who undertook to unlock the safe 96,090,- 278 years, 2G9 days. 30 minutes and 10 seconds working at the rate of CO numbers a minute to arrive at the proper combination. During this time he would have no time for food or sleep. Some people are making a great to-do over the vandalism of a Penn sylvania farmer who blew up' with dynamite an ancient stone altar erect ed by the Indians before the white man came to this section of the coun try. But. exclaims the New York Observer, these same people view with comparative equanfmlty the vandal ism at Niagara* falls and along the palisades of the Hudson. The “limitation of fortunes” would not trouble most of us. According to a report issued by the census bureau there were in the Unit ed States In 1904 103.176 persons in almshouses, and of these 111,517 were males. More than three-fourths had been servants. Forty-eight per cent, had been laborers and servants. 19 per cent, engaged in manufacturing and mechanical Industries, and 24 per cent, occupied with agricultural trans portation and other outdoor pursuits. The grass crop and the mosquito crop are both flourishing this year. NEWS OF THE WEEK Most Important Happenings of tho Past Seven Days.
