St .Louis Physician 0Ws ,Q Fjml Cure For Dkease. 8L:Louii Leaving rife and child, ren, not knowing when he will be able to tee theni again, isolating himself completely from the world, iDr. Louis Knapp ol St. Louhj will devote bis life to nursing a poor Chinese leper, for whom the city of St. Louis bas.provided a home, and whom it wilUMpport and care for at long; ai he lives. The leper may live ten or even fifteen years longer. Until the China, man dies iDr. Knapp may be barred from ever teeing any member of his family. .Even then he may not be reunited with his wile and children, for he runs the risk of becoming a leper himself, and so forever .barred from intercourse with the world. Dr. Knapp has entered upon his duties ae nurse for Dong Cong, the leper. With his patient as bis only companion, Dr. Knapp wilt live in a three-reota frame bouse now being built near .Quarantine. Dr. Knapp is without fear of danger to himself and intends to improve bis time by making a thorough study of leprosy, lie takes his library with ibini. If a cure for, lqprosy it ever found." he said, it wall be by some oae who has devoted yar to the study A an actual case of the .disease, and L am not without hope abat I may at leaet contribute to eoob a discovery." In spite of the warning given by the health department to him as to the five other applicants for the position of nurse, Dr. Knapp ibelieves that be will be able to avoid any possibility of contagion. "Leprosy is only mildly contagious," be said. "It would be extracted only by living in the same moid with a pal ion t, or by the grossest carelessness in handling articles which had been in fected by him. liotb of these dangers I shall carefully avoid." Dr. Knnpp is 40 years old. With his wife and four children he lived at No 4022 Virginia avenue. The final fare wells between the physician and bis family were said before he went to the health department to report for duty. Dr. Knnpp hopes that Hie department will allow bim to make an occasional visit to bis borne. Dr. Knapp will prepare all the food used by bimselt and patient. The kitchen, from which Gong will be ex cluded, will separate the leper's room from that of his nurse. Some arrange tueois for musical diversion will prob ably be made. -Dr. Knapp is a pianist, and will endeavor to get an instrument for use in bis room. This case of leprosy was discovered two weeks ago by Dr. M. F. Eagman af the St. Louis Polyclinic. The vic tim was at once placed in confinement. The principal manifestations of the disease is in "anesthetic areas.11 On these parts of the body hot irons can be appled without causing pain, and the flesh is insensible to the prick of needless. Dong Gong's house will cost $600 and it will cost the city $1,300 a year to care lor him. liooks for Missouri Schools. The state library board, consisting of State Superintendent Carrmgton, City Superintendents Whiteford of Moberly, Buchman of Sedalhj, Hal comb of Liberty, and Young of Webb City, is preparing a list of library and supplementary books from which the school libraries are to be selected. This list can not be published and ready fur distribution until sometime in Seplempor. During the past ten years there has been spent in Missouri for library books entirely unsuited and unfit for school children, and for useless charts, maps and mathematical blocks, many hundrod thousand dollars. State Sup etintendent Carrington hopes to save much of the waste along this line by th new library law. The state li brary board, consisting of expeiienced practical school men, will recommend nothing that is not well adapted to the children; that does not really supplement school work that is not worth what it costs.

"Ex- Governor Stone is not a candidate for the democratic presidential nomina tion In 1904. Ex-Governor Stone is a candidate for the United States sen atorship, and nothing else. You can ay that regardless of all aonounce. ments to the contrary and yon can also say that he will be the next United Slates senator from Missouri. He Is tbe only man in th rac bavin . 0 w uh iu m show ot election." The foregoing was tbe declaration made by Colocel Moses C. Wetmore to a reporter for the K. C. limes at tbe Planters house last week. Colonel Wetmore Is a close business. political and personal friend of Ex- Governor Stone. He U an ardent friend of bis and a liberal campaign supporter in 1896 and also 1900, and it is well known that he eDj'oya the closet social and political intimacy with both ex-Governor Stone and William Jennings Bryan. Coloue Wetmore has never faltered eufcer iu bis zealous friendship for or hia sup port of Bryan and Stone. The abandonment of that plan and the recent announcement that the Jackson club of Kansas City, at Us annual dinner, September 1, would launch booms for ex-Goveroer Stone for the presidency and William II. Wallace of Kansas City for the Missouri eenatorship, has caused a suspicion in eotue quarters that exGoveroor Stone and Mr Wallace were working in the interest of each other's political acbievments. j)n that subject, Colonel Wetmore said. "People in Kansas City or else where using ex-Governor Stone's name n connection with tbe democratic presidental nomination booming hiui for any office other than the United States senatorship are doing so with out his authority." Aa "The Times"' Sees It. The Macon Times very truthfully sizes up the political situalijn in Mis souri as follows: "Ao democrat in Missouri will give beed to tbe republicans' attempt to oreate dissention within tbe ranks o. democracy. Neither will they pay at tention to the moutbings of a few mal contents over the state who are rush. ing into print in an endeavor to fuither tbeir personal ambitions. The rank and file of the democratic party are just now industriously engaged in fol lowing their various business pursuits and when tbe time comes every man of them may be counted upon to be at bis gun and present an unbroken line against tbe common enemy. That is necessary to insure success, and bicker ings and by plays should be cast aside if democracy is to be perpetuated in Missouri. , . m m . HEWS OF THE KAIL WATS.
