Tragedy of a Broadway car.
Truly It Is “Everybody for Himself" in New York. There were six In the seat of the Broadway surface car, which was too many. However, everybody who board ed the car seemed to take a fancy to that particular seat, so some were also standing. A very small man sat crouched on the end seat, a pretty girl next to him. The small man seemed to be very restless, and no wonder, for all the rest were pushing the pret ty girl, who necessarily pushed him In away that seemed to Infer that his room was better than his company. At length, unable to endure It any longer, he all at once shoved his shoulder under the rail and fell out, apparently. •‘Mercy!" screamed a nervous pas senger, "has ha committed suicide?" “I don't know,” answered the pretty girl, "but, anyway, I've got the end seat." —N. Y. Press. MEDICAL FAILURES An Authority Bays Three-Fourths bf Graduates Are Unfitted to Practice. That 3,000 out of the 4,000 gradu ates turned out by the Medical Col leges each year are whollly unfitted to practice medicine and are menaces to the communities In which they set tle was stated by Dr. Chester Mayer, of the State Board of Medical Exam iners of Kentucky at a meeting of the American Medical Association's Com mittee on Medical Education, held In Chicago not long ago. Dr. Mayer said nat only 25 to 28 per cent of the graduates are qualified. Fifty-eight per cent of the graduates examined In 28 states were refused licenses. With few exceptions these failures took a second examination in a few weeks and only 50 per cent of them passed. "This does not mean that deficien cies in" their training were corrected in those few weeks," Dr. Mayer said. "It probably shows that experience showed them what the test would probably be and they 'crammed' for the examination. Dr. W. T. Qott, Secretary of the Indiana Board said: "The majority of our schools now teach their students how to pass ex aminations, not how to be good phy sicians." At the session of the American Medical Association held in Atlantic City in June, Dr. M. Clayton Thrush, a professor in the Medico Chirurgical College In Philadelphia said: "Many doctors turned out of the Medical Schools are so ignorant in matters pertaining to pharmacy that they know nothing about the properties of the drugs they prescribe for their patients!” Dr. Henry Beats, Jr., Pres ident of the Pennsylvania State Board of Medical Examiners, after scrutiniz ing the papers of a class of candi dates for licensure said: "About one quarter of the papers show a degree of illiteracy that renders the candi dates for licensure incapable of un derstanding medicine.” A great many more physicians and chemists might be quoted in support If the astounding charge that 3,000 in competents are being dumped onto in unsuspecting public each year. tV hat the damage done amounts to an never be estimated for these in . npetents enjoy the privilege of di jslng, prescribing or dispensing Bp s regarding the properties of h they know nothing and then a.gning death certificates that are aot passed upon by anyone unless the eoroner is called in. Probably there Is not a grave yard from one end of the country to the other that does not Contain the burled evidences of the mistakes or criminal carelessness of Incompetent physicians. During the last year there have been perhaps, half a dozen known Cases where surgeons, after perform ing operations have sewed up the in cisions without first removing the gauze sponges used to absorb the blood, and in some cases forceps and bven surgeon’s scissors have been left in the wound. How many of .these cases there have been, where the patient died, there is no means oi knowing and comparatively few of the cases where the discovery is nade in time to save life become gen ially public. Reports from Sanita iums for the treatment of the Drug Habit show that members of the medi *al profession are more often treated n these institutions than members >f any other profession, and that a najority of the patients, excluding the ihysicians themselves, can trace heir downfall directly to a careless ihysician. r . How many criminal operations are performed by physicians is also a matter of conjecture. Operations of his class are. unfortunately, very frequent in large cities. Some gradu ited and licensed physicians, many bf them of supposed respectability, nake an exclusive practice of crim nal medical and surgical treatment. )r. Henry G. W. Rhelnhart, Coroner’s physician of Chicago, estimates the lumber of criminal operations, annu ally, in Chicago alone at 38,000. How nany resulted fatally are unknown, is when death results, the real cause s disguised in the death certificate, rhich the physician signs, and which io one but himself and a clerk sees. Probably not one case of malprac ice in 1,000 ever becomes the subject f a law suit but in the last year ap roximately 150 cases wherein the laintiff has alleged malpractice have een reported in the newspapers, and Iwing to the social prominence and he favored positions of many physi- Bfaans not more than half the new Suits stated, probably, result in any laewspaper publicity, but It would probably not be an exaggeration to jjßtate that the total cases of malprac tice, not involving criminal operations •r criminal medical practice, would wmount> to 150,000 or more than one aiase to each physician in the country. Iwhis estimate is, of course, more or jnss conjecture. Untimely deaths and Hermanent disabilities are frequent, Bnd occur within the knowledge of al- Hiost every one, when life could have saved, or health restored had |Bie physician been skillful, careful competent.

IMMENSE HOLLOW DAM MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF WATER TO BE BTORED AND DIVERTED INTO USE. D?nver. —The first sod was actually turned on the great Standley Lake dam which W’hen built is to give Colorado one of the biggest irrigation plants in the world, and transform thousands of acres right at Denver’s door from bar renness into a land of the rose, of wheat, corn, oats and other necessl tiea. The Knowlton-Bollen Construc tion Company of Denver has the con tract to strip the dam site of all plant substance and to complete it in thirty days for work on the dam proper. The next important step after the excavation work is the erection of a core wall six feet in width through the center of the site, from one end to the other, nearly one and a half miles. This wall will rise four feet above the sur face of the ground and go to bedrock. The Standley Lake reservoir is being built by the Denver Reservoir Irriga tion Company, backed by Milton Smith, E. A. Neresheimer and other prominent Coloradoans. It is to be a lake directly above rich gold and coal deposits, and will have the distinction of being the only irrigation body to force gold and coal mines (prospective) out of business. The owners of the land made a hard, unsuccessful fight in tho courts against the irrigation com pany. Worked All Summer. Active work has been carried on all summer in construction of water car rying canals on the Western slope. A number of Denver men interested in i tho development of Colorado were present, and, although no plans had been made for a program, the event evolved itself into quite a spectacular afTair. W. E. Goldsborough, first vice president and manager. E. A. Neres heimer, treasurer; Frederick W. Tay lor, local manager; J. A. Lewis, audi tor; Milton Smith and others were among those present. This water is to be furnished only to stockholders of the Farmers' Reser voir & Irrigation Company. The Den ver company now owns the Church ditch, formerly owned by the Golden, Ralston & Church Ditch Company; the i Community ditch, Marshall lake and a chain of eight other reservoirs, for merly owned by the Community Canal & Reservoir Company, with 15,000 [ acres of land, formerly owned by the I Denver Land Company. This land is nearly all being cultivated and fur nished with water from the Commu nity system. The entire country, from Denver to Greeley, through the dry district, which has heretofore been but slightly ! irrigated and cultivated, will during the i next year or two be brought under ir rigation and cultivation by this great enterprise backed by Denver men. Wanted—A “Poison Squad." Urbana, 111.—“Wanted —Twenty-four young men, with good digestions, for the 'saltpeter squad.' ” This ad attracted deep interest when the University of Illinois opened this week. A "poison squad,” so railed, will be maintained for a year to inves tigate the effect of saltpeter as a pre servative of meat. The American Packers’ Association is footing the bills. The state university chemistry department consented to take charge of the experiment. Two large houses have been secured for the squad. The young men will be subjected to strict routine. They will not be allowed to eat between meals, but will receive board and lodging free. The health, weight and other particulars of the men fed fresh meat will be compared with those who are given the cured meat. No results will be published until the next year is completed. All meat will be cured at the university. Democratic Women Organizing. Denver— Planning to organize the Democratic women voters of the state ir. order to give a solid party support to the next Democratic candidate for the presidency, many of the more 1 rominent members of the Jane Jeffer son club of Denver, headed by Mrs. Ruth Bryan Leavitt, president of the club, are endeavoring to form what is to be known as the Women’s United Democratic League. The new plans are broad In their scope, it being the intention of the promoters to reach cut all over the state with the Denver Lianch of the league as headquarters. For some weeks the plan has been in the formulative stage and has been informally discussed, pro and con. by the club members. As yet no official cct'.on has been taken regarding the project, but It Is expected the question will come up for disposal one way or tbe other at the next meeting of the club, which is to be called by Mrs. I tavitt. To Make Rails for Safety. New York. —Ex-Judge E. H. Gary, chairman of the board of directors of the United States Steel Corporation, who has Just returned from a two months’ vacation abroad, in speaking of the movement for the improvement of steel rails, said that the commission of lexperts appointed to consider the sub ject would probably report in two or three weeks. He said it would be found that the steel manufacturers and the railroad companies would make an ef fort to adopt a standard that would in sure the safety of the public. Big Ditch Cost $84,449,000.

CHICKEN A FAVORITE DISH. Most Appetizing Dainty When Cooked En Casserole. The charm of cooking en casserole Is in the delicious blending of flavors that it accomplishes. And one can have meat as well as vegetables, all from the same dish and with equally good flavor. Perhaps the most popu lar casserole dish is chicken. To pre pare this the chieAen should be washed and wiped very carefully and thor oughly, then buttered all over and dipped in flour. The chicken is then laid in the bottom of a good sized cas serole and two cups of soup stock are added. If vegetables are desired with it a dozen small onions are put in whole, with a couple of large potatoes cut into about two dozen small balls, one carrot cut into fancy shapes, two handfuls of string beans, two stalks of celery, a clove of garlic, whole, salt and pepper, a sprig of parsley and one turnip cut into fancy shapes. All these are laid around the chicken and the casserole is then put in the oven to stay for an hour and a quarter. If the vegetables are young and fresh then it is best to put them in after the chick en has cooked for 20 minutes. But if they are old then they can be started when the chicken Is, and both will be come tender and done at the same time. HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN MOLD. Tasty Supper Dish That Is Something of a Novelty. This Is a tasty supper dish that may be made from a fowl that is too old for cooking In the ordinary way. Aft er it is plucked and drawn wash the fowl and put it into an enameled saucepan with cold water to cover; add a small onion, two cloves and four peppercorns and one slice of lean ham; place over a moderate fire and simmer gently until the meat falls from the bone. When about half done, add a teaspoonful of salt. When done take the meat from the bone* and cut into small pieces not over one-half Inch square; put the bones and skin back into the saucepan and boll until the liquor is reduced to one and a half pints, then strain and sea son to taste. Mix with this the chick en. pour the whole into a mold and stand it in a cold place over night. When hard and cold, turn out of the mold, garnish with parsley and serve. Chow-Chow. Take a half pound of ground mus tard. gradually mix with it a little vin egar taken from two measured quarts. Heat the larger quantity of vinegar: when boiling stir in the mixed mus tard and simmer for five minutes, in the meantime peel one quart of small white onions, and boll in salted water until half done. Also half cook one quart of tiny limn beans, one quart of sweet corn scraped from the cob, tw*o quarts of small string beans. Shred one head of cabbage, slice one dozen peeled cucumbers, salt both, let stand an hour, then drain. Add with the partly cooked drained vegetables to the prepared vinegar. Stir in one quarter of a pound of white mustard seed and eight green peppers chopped fine. Boil all for five minutes. How to Make a Furniture Polish. To make a furniture polish use one junce of brown beeswax, one-half ounce of white wax. one-half ounce of castile soap, one-half pint of turpen tine and one-half pint of water. Shred the brown and white wax into a jar (a two-pound Jar will do), add the Turpentine and let it stand on the utove until dissolved. Shred the soap and let it boil In the water until quite dissolved. Allow to cool, then pour into the Jar and stir all the ingre dients together. When cold, it will be a thick cream and must be kept air tight. For old furniture this pro duces a deep, glowing polish quite dif ferent from any other, and it does not finger mark. Tomato Rounds with Dressing. Cut large, ripe tomatoes into round Alices. Dust with pepper and salt. Dredge on both sides with flour. Put a large piece of butter In a frying pan with two bay leaves and a soup bunch. When the butter is hot, put in the ♦ omatoes. being careful not to break them; turn on both sides; take out us soon as cooked and put on a hot platter. Add half a cupful of cream in the same pan and cook a few min utes. Put in two tablespoonfuls of chopped parsley, season with salt and pepper, and pour over the tomatoes. Remove the bay leaves and soup fiunch before serving. It is nice for luncheon or Sunday night tea. To Oil Kitchen Stove. First, remove all dirt and grease by using laundry or scouring soap and hot water. Dry thoroughly. Apply sweet oil. lard, or any clean grease containing no salt. Rub with flannel or soft cloth until no grease will tfome off on the hand. This treatment will remove rust as well as protect the stove. It requires but a few’min utes to give the stove the appearance of new, and the process need not be repeated as often as blacking. Pillow Slips. If both sides of a pillow slip are left open instead of just one they will be much easier to iron and there will be no hard corners to turn in washing. Both sides can be trimmed with lace or insertion or with embroidery. On one side of each opening sew two but tons. and on the opposite side two buttonholes to correspond. Rttfton over the pillow. They look so much prettier than the usual pillow slips that pillow shams are not needed. Favorite Pea Soup. Get two pounds of fresh spare ribs and one small veal bone. Put in a cheese cloth so as to prevent from straining. Pour just enough water to cover meat, add one quart of fresh peas and one small carrot, cut in dice. Boil slowly. As it boils down, take meat out. Add one quart of fresh milk. Let it come to a boil. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve. Banana Salad. Choose bananas that are ripe, one for each person. Take off their skins and lay each in a dainty white lettuce leaf. Put a mixture of nuts and cel ery around each and over all pour mayonnaise. HERITAGE OF CIVIL WAR. Thousands of Soldiers Contracted Chronic Kidnsy Trouble While in the Service. The experience of Capt. John L. Ely. of Co. E, 17th Ohio, now living at 500 East Second street, Newton, Kansas will Interest the thou sands of veterans whe came back from the Civil War suffering tor tures with kidney com plaint. Capt. Ely says: "I contracted kidney trouble during the Civil War, and the oc casional attacks final ly developed into a chronic case. At one time I had to use a crutch and cane to get about. My back was .lame and weak, and besides the aching, there was a distressing retention of the kidney secretions. 1 was in a bad way when I began using Doan's Kidney Pills in 1901, but the remedy cured me, and I have been well ever since.” Sold by all dealers. 50 c*-nts a box. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo. N. Y. JOKE ON THE CONGRESSMAN. Waiter Drew Wrong Inference from Guest’s Attitude. A Georgia congressman gleefully tells of an experience during his last visit to New York. The representative had put up at an American-plan hotel. When, upon sit ting down at dinner the first evening of his stay, the waiter obsequiously handed him a bill of fare, the con gressman tossed it aside, slipped the waiter a dollar bill, and said, "Bring me a good dinner." The dinner proving satisfactory, the southern member pursued this plan during his entire stay in New York. As the last tip was given he men tioned thut he was about to return to Washington. Whereupon, the waiter, with an ex pression of great earnestness, said: "Well, sir, when you or any of your friends that can't read come to New York, just ask for Dick." —Harper's Weekly. He Set a Date. A merchant In a Wisconsin town who had a Swedish clerk sent him out to do some collecting. When he re turned from an unsuccessful trip he reported: “Yim Yonson say he vlll pay ven he sells his hogs. Yim Olesen, he vill pay ven he sell him wheat, and Bill Pack say he vill pay in Yanuary.” "Well,” said the boss, "that's the first time Bill ever set a date to pay. Did he really say he would pay in January?” "Veil, aye tank so,” said the clerk. "He say dat it ban a dam cold day ven you get that money. I tank that ban in Yanuary.”—Harper’s Weekly. What the Poet Bays. After their honeymoon to Niagara Falls they came back and settled on the old farm. "Gracious, Sile!" said Cynthia. "Why are you in such a bad humor?" "Making butter is blamed hard work,” grumbled Sile, removing the beads from his brow. "Oh, cheer up, Sile. Don’t the poet say that it is ‘love that makes the world go round’?" "Yes, but, by gosh, it don’t make the churn go round.” The Truth. Gobsa Golde descended painfully from his 90-horse power limousine. “I wish to purchase," he said, "an engagement ring.” "Yes. sir," said the eager clerk. "We have just Imported a superb ring, sir— two ruby hearts surrounded —” "No,” said the aged millionaire, in a disillusioned voice; "no, that won't do. There Is only one heart concerned in this affair. The girl is marrying me for my money." Dutch at Home and Abroad. Holland has a population of only 5,- 000,000, but there are 40.000,000 of peo ple in the Dutch East and West In dies. The Dutch are not at present much addicted to emigration.

Speaking of coffee, a nurse of Wilkes Barre, Pa., writes: "I used to drink Strong coffee myself, and suffered greatly from headaches and indiges tion. While on a visit to my brothers I had a good chance to try Postum Food Coffee, for they drank it alto gether in place of ordinary coffee. In two weeks after using F’ostum I found I was much benefited and finally my headaches disappeared and also the Indigestion. “Naturally I have since used Postum among my patients, and have noticed a marked benefit where coffee has been left off and Postum used. "I observed a curious fact about Postum when used among mothers. It greatly helps the flow of milk in cases where coffee is inclined to dry it up, and where tea causes nervousness. "I find trouble in getting servants to make Postum properly. They most always serve it before it has been boiled long enough. It should be boiled 15 to 20 minutes after boiling begins and served with cream, when it is cer tainly a delicious beverage.” Read "The Road to Wellville" in pkgs. "There’s a Reason.” MR.

On Thanksgiving day she told the colored man who did chores about the place that he might go into the barn yard and help himself to a chicken. The man obeyed with alacrity and was most profuse in his thanks. In the course of a few days the lady's husband informed her that on Thanksgiving day neighbors had seen Mr. Johnson seize two choice hens from the coop. “I did tell him to take one.” con fessed the lady regretfully, "but, you know, dear, how intensely Mr. John son celebrates the holidays. Why. he simply cannot help seeing things dou ble.” THREE BOYS HAD ECZEMA. Were Treated at Dispensary—Did Not Improve—Suffered Five Months —Perfect Cure by Cuticura.

The leading lady of a road company playing in one of the smaller cities In Ohio concluded that she would press some of her lace collars one morning. She accordingly rang the bell, and when the hall boy appeared said: "Bring me up a hot Iron.” In course of time he returned empty handed, and when the lady answered his knock he said: "I couldn't get it for you. lady.” "And why not?” she asked, mysti fied.

London Inn Responsible for Origin of Common Baying. The old inns of England have been responsible for the origin of many common sayings. An instance of this Is the proverbial phrase "He has gone to the devil.” On Fleet street, London, near Temple Bar, was once a tavern which was known by the strict ly old-fashioned name, "The Devil and Saint Dunstan.” It was famouß for its good dinners and excellent wines, and received a large patronage from the lawyers of Temple Bar. It was familiarly known as "The Devil," and when a lawyer left his office to go there he usually left a no tice on his door, "Gone to the Devil.” There were some who patronized the tavern to the neglect of their business, and the notice was so regularly exhib ited on their doors that it finally came to be used to characterize the man who was losing his grip and going to destruction. —The Sunday Magazine.
