SMALLPOX VS. CONSUMPTION. J
The Washington Times comment- ['
ing upon the disease of smallpox, J
says: -hi '
No little excitement was recently;
aroused by the discovery that one of
the employes of the Public Library
had developed smallpox. The insti
tution was closed to the public, ev
erybody who had been exposed was
hastily vaccinated against it, yet it
is not the most fearful illness that I
could befall a person. In the last 12
years there have been but 22 deaths
in Washington to its record, a death
rate of never more than 2 8 in 1,000,
--000. In 1907 there was not one;
death due to smallpox, and there j
were fatal cases in only seven of
the last 12 years.
In the last 12 years there have
been 9.537 deaths due to consump
tion. There were 751 las: year. The
average has been about 795. The;
death rate of consumption in Wash- ■
inu'on has varied from 2.279 ia 1,- •
000,100 to 4.239 in l.jf».iM. The
deaths in Washington due to con-!
sumption for the last 12 years have |
averaged more than two for every
But tlu re is no excitement over 1
consump ion. No one is alarmed, i
No insanitary offices or buildings are
closed. There is no great public]
monument in Washington against
the disease. One organized effort is j
being made, but even that is handi
capped by the lack of funds. The
Committee on the Prevention of
Consumption is begging for the pal-'
try sum of $4,928 with which to
wage war against this disease which
has taken from us nearly 10,000
men, women and children in the
last 12 years, and which is this very
day taking its average of two deaths.
What would two lives be worth to
Washington a day? What would
751 lives be worth in a year? Is an
attempt to sav=> some of them worth
55.000. Would a $5,000 building be
torn down to save a babe that might
be in the claws of some monster in- '■
trenched behind its walls?

MEMBERSHIP OF THE CHURCHES
Dr. Henry King o!
church statistics for the eleventh
Census, recently made a report of
church membership of the I'nited
States at the close of the year 1907.
Partly it is estimated and partly it is ,
the result of careful statistical work.
Estimates are sometimes necessary,
however, if an idea of the compara- |
tive strength of the churches is to
be conveyed. •
The church and synagogue mem
bership of the United States at the
end of 1907 Dr. Carroll places at 32,- ,
983,156, while the membership of a ,
year previously was placed at 32,- ,
355,610. The gain was 627,546. ,
The gain in the number of ministers ,
was 2.301 and in the number of ,
houses of worship 4,214. i (
The membership of the Catholic
church is larger than that of any ,
other. The Methodist church fol
lows. Catholic membership is esti- j
mated at 11,645.495 and the gain
for a year is placed at 246,000. The

Prank M. Dallam Comments on We»
The new wagon bridge across the
Columbia river at Wenatchee is com
pleted and open for traffic. It is the
only exclusive wagon bridge that
Ispans the great water way in the
The structure is of steel, and
has been in process of construction
many months. Its completion marks
a new epoch in the history of We
natchee. and should be a powerful
fiic.or in increasing the growth of
that important and growing place.
Koto ily does it bring a large agri
cultural country in close and easy
touch with the city, but the bridge is
used for conveying pipe lines across
the river, the water from which will
reclaim many acres of waste land.
This area of present desolation wiU
in a few years be covered with bear
ing orchards, adding to the already
vast fruit output of the Wenatchee
country, and the lands will be as val
uable as those under orchard on the
west side of the stream. So far as
the water can be made to reach the
country will become prolifically pro
ductive and vastly valuable. In not
ing this important event, and con
sidering the changes that will follow
iow this consummation of a long
cherished object on the part of the
residents of Wenatchee, we are given
an opportunity to refer to the magi
cal changes that a
few years have wrought in that par
ticular section of the state, and it is
only one example of progress that
h;is its counterpart all over Washing
ton. Twenty years ago, aye, less
than that period of time, there was
I nothing apparent to the human eye
in the valley at and near the mouth
of the Wenatchee river that gave
promise of the beautiful oasis so well
I populated that exists today. With
two or three exceptions the land was
; unoccupied, and presented about as
uninviting an appearance as the des—
; crt of Sahara. Sage brush and boul
, ders covered the present townsite of
i Wenatchee. while the east side of
I the river was and still is. a shifting
xpanse of sand. The wind in sttm
' mer seems to blow perpetually, and
; a cloud of real esta~e. that will soon
Ibe valued at hundreds of dollars per
i acre, fills the atmosphere. The
s homesteader shunned the country,
i and the land was looked upon as
I valueless, with no prospect of ever
being utilized. The railroad, that
' great factor in commonwealth Bp
| building, came, people commenced
i trickling in to locate in anew place,
evidence was present in a few isolat
ed spots that water only was needed
ito feed a soil that under the stimu
ilous of that fluid produced the best
I fruit grown, capi.al was forthcoming
!to supply that water, and as a con
| sequence within a decade there
i innumerable orchards that have
! brought wealth to the individual
I and the community as a, whole,
i There are few sections in the west
I a here a few years have worked such
a wonderful transformation. And
jin passing we may add that the pro
jects of furnishing water to large
i areas of land in this county, notably
|in the Methow valley, around Brew
ster and in the Oka.iogan valley that
are now just about reaching the
point where water in abundance can
be depended upon, will in a very
short time work the same notable
changes that have taken place in and
about Wenatchee.—Frank SI. Dallam

.i T/ieless and Wctvvit.hs'anc.'irig.
In my younger days out west. said
I Senator Vest. I went to a variety tho
■ ater one night in Kansas City.
It was one of those primitive shows
: where the stage manager comes before
| the footlights without a coat and waist
' coat and with his shirt sleeves roiled
up to the elbows to announce the next
1 number of the programme.
"Miss Bertie Allendale," remarked
the stage manager, appearing in one
,of the interludes, "who has entranfc.l
1 two hemispheres with her wonderful
! vocal powers, will now render in her
1 inimitable style that exquisite vocai
selection entitled 'Down In the Val
| ley.' "
A gentleman in a red flannel shirt
i rose in the midst of the audience and
i exclaimed in an impressive bass voice:
1 "Oh, thunder! Bertie Allendale can't
' sing for green apples!"
j The manager, who had started to
leave the stage, halted and turned. An
. ugly light flashed from his eye. He
came down from the stage, walked
\ Slowly tip to the man in the red shirt
• ami said, "You'll git out of here." This
' Invitation being declined, a combat fol-
I lowed, lasting about ten minutes.
I Chairs were broken, and both Combat
j ants were bruised and battered. Final
j ly the man in the red shirt was ejected,
; iind the manager walked back to the
stage and faced I'ie audience with n 1
. bloody face and clothing torn and tat
tered. He waited a minute, pumping
for bream, and then announced im
i "Nevertheless and notwithstanding, |
Miss Bertie Allendale will now sing
ber exquisite vocal selection entitled I
'Down In the Valley.' "
And she sang it with great applause |
and an encore.
God of our fathers, known of old,
Lord of our far flung battle line.
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine-
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet.
Lest we forget—lest we forget!
The tumult and the shouting dies.
The captains and the kings depart.
Still stands thine ancient sacrifice.
An humble and a contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet.
Lest we forget—lest we forget!
Far called, our navies melt away;
On dune and headland sinks the fire.
Lo. all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
J'jdse of the nations, spare us yet.
Lest we forget—lest we forget!
If. drun'v with sight of power, we loose
Wild tongues that have not thee in
Bath boasting as th» gentiles use
Or les.ser breeds without the law-
Lord (Jod of Hosts, be with us yet.
Lest we forget—lest we forget!
For heathen heart that puts her trust
In reeking tube and iron shard-
All valiant dust that builds on dust
And, guarding, calls not thee to
For frantic boast and foolish word.
Thy mercy on thy people. Lord!
