NEW YORK CITY IN
WAR UPON CHOLERA City Thrown Into Scare by Dan ger of Plague. Fifteen Cases of the Disease Now Con fined at Swinburne Island Hos pital—Governor Dix May Take Charge. As New York city was thrown into a scare by Health Officer Alva H. Doty’s admission that the city is in danger of a cholera plague, it was said that Governor Dix may be called upon to take carge at qua:antine. Charles Puskind, attorney for im migrants, held at quarantine, who has made charges against Dr. Doty, has written to Judge Bulger of the immi gration commission, suggesting that Judge Bulger request Governor to take charge of the situation. The fight to !ar tholeia from New York continued, with a federal expert helping the local department of health. The 248 persons who arrived here two weeks ago on the steamer Moltke and aie still under observation will undergo bacteriological examinations, and a more ligid quarantine will be enforced at Swinburne island, wheie fifteen cases of the disease are con fined, with four others under suspi cion. These cases, with the fatalities that have occurred since the Moltke brought the germs here, from Naples, show the reality of the danger thv city faces f;om the epidemic now raging in southern Europe. Another death occurred at the Swin burne island hospital during the night, making the total six. The latest vic tim is Francis Farander, aged four teen. The quarantine officers said that conditions at. Hoffman island were satisfactory. The steamer Perugia, from the Med iterranean, is still at anchor in quar antine, while her passengers are un der observation. Although no cholera has been found among the 261 pas sengers and ninety-one members of the crew, the ship is being disinfected. While nothing even approaching a panic exists here now, the situation is receiving greater attention, and Dr. Alvah H. Doty, health officer of the port, has felt called upon to issue a re assuring statement: Dr. Doty says that the cholera germ can be received in one way only, through the mouth, and that there is no danger in ordinary contact with per sons who have the disease. However, Charles Puskind, counsel for the complainants at the investiga tion of Dr. Doty’s official conduct now in progress, declares his belief that the cholera patients now in the hos pital caught the disease not on the steamer hut at the immigration sta tion, where all the passengers were detained after landing. The danger, or rather the under standing of it, is further increased by the comparatively recent medical knowledge of “cholera carriers.” These persons, Dr. Doty says, may transmit the germs although themselves ab solutely free from their ill effects, and he as great a menace to others as a man dying from the disease. “OLEO” MEN INDICTED Federal Grand Jury Returns True bids at Chicago. At Chicago Thursday three revenue officers and twenty-three persons con nected with the oleomargarine indus try were indicted by the federal grand jury. Indictments were against offi cials of the John F. Jelke company, George P. Braun company, and Will iam J. Moxley, Inc. The charges against the revenue of ficials are based on specific receipts of money. The charges against the men identified with the “oleo” business is conspiracy to defraud the govern ment of the tax on artificially colored oleomargarine. WOMAN DIES OF CHOLERA Dreaded Disease Proves Fata! to Pa- j tient in New York. One Cholera patient at Swinburne Island died in hospital there and four steerage passengers of the steamship Moltke have been removed from Hoff man Island, the observation station, where there are now more than 400 suspects, with “symptoms suspicious of cholera,” as quarantine officials ex press it. If these suspects have the disease. ! which is more than probable, the total j of cholera sufferers at Swinburne is j eighteen. i EIGHT KILLED WRECk j Basel-Frankfort Express, Loaded with Tourists, Leaves the Rails.

Shooting Stars. Astronomers estimate that about 150,000,000,000 of shooting stars reach this earth In the form of meteorites or dust every year. Of course shooting stars in reality are not stars at all; they are little cosmic particles, often weighing much less than one ounce and composed mostly of iron and car- I bon. Most of them travel around the sun in the same fashion that comets do, following very flattened elliptical trajectories. Sometimes it happens that the trajectory of some of these bodies cross the trajectory of our own earth, if the little meteorite and the earth get to that point at the same time they naturally collide. These planetoids are not luminous in them selves. So long as they fly through ether (which is utter nothingness) there is no friction; therefore no heat and no light. But as soon as they enter the atmosphere with which our globe is surrounded their speed is so great that the friction against the air immediate ly lights and volatilizes them.—New York World. Train Your Breathing. “If one learns to breathe properly when young be finds tbe benefit of it in middle and old age,” said a physi cian. “You will notice that when a middle aged man gets into a train be holds bis breath and then grunts loudly as he sits down. This is a stupid practice. It throws a terrific strain on the heart and may even burst a blood vessel in the lungs or tbe brain. Many of those sudden deaths we hear of are due to holding the breath while making a vio lent effort. Only tbe trained athlete is usually free from this fault. Athlete or not. every one should practice easy and regular breathing. If it cannot be managed with closed mouth then tbe mouth should be opened when per forming such operations as lifting a weight, running upstairs, stepping into a railway carriage, and the like. You may add years to your life by this lit tle precaution.—Loudon Globe. A Heartless Father. “I need some help with my house hold duties.” announced a Malden wo man when her husband came borne the other night. “What’s the matter with our daugh ter?” the husband wanted to know. “Our daughter? The idea! Why, Jim, you know she’s awfully delicate, and she would die if she had to do any household work. She has her school, and”— “And what? Her teacher’s report shows that she isn’t doing a bit of school work.” “But she is the star member of her basketball team, and you know she is eager to take the prize at the gym nasium contest. But that’s just like a man—wanting a delicate girl to en gage in rough, hard labor. Be asham ed of yourself, Jim Jenkins! You have no feeling.”—Boston Traveler. Modern “Dew Ponds.” Tbe ancient “dew pends” of Eng land have their modern counterparts on tbe rock of Gibraltar, where drink ing water is obtained by the conden sation of the abundant dew in espe cially prepared basins. The primitive process consists in making a hollow in the ground and filling the bottom with dry straw, over which Is placed a lay er of clay. On a clear night the clay cools very rapidly, and the dew is con densed Into water In tbe basin. The pond is improved by putting a layer of asphalt or Portland cement under the straw. At Gibraltar the present prac tice is to use wood instead of straw and sheet Iron Instead of clay. CASTOR l A For Infants and Children.
