The annual report of the National Association for the Study and Pre vention of Tuberculosis shows that during 111 $U.5iHi.L00 was spent in this country in combatting tubercu losis Tlie greater part of thin money v as used in diretl treating patients -.lmadv suffering with the disease. while dispensaries and open air schooia were also pro ided. It Is better to remove the -Hindi- j lions that make diseu.se than it is to attempt to combat the disease after j it has gained a firm foothold, and it ; is easier. Much has been done in the past and is being done daily to educate the public to the advantages I X pure air and light and proper food il as necessary in the prevention of i tuberculosis ar.d other diseases as in heir cure. The public is learning that the diseases that are far and away the most cosllv with which it afflicted are impure air diseases. And this la the work that counts The campaign must be one of educa tion. A larger fund that would per mit greater attention to this while at the same time- providing for the care of those afflicted with the d ease would bring- much better results although it must not be lost sight of that even the proper care of those suffering with tuberculosis is In it self a powerful educative force.

A NEW FOOD ARTICLE. Alaska, the land of the unexpected. is to give the country a new food sup ply reindeer meat. Several years ago when starvation faced tho Indians of Alaska, the gov ernment brought over from Siberia, a h rj gf reindeer and put them in charge of an expert and of assistants brought from Lapland, where the rein deer is the beast of burden and a food soiine. The experiment succeeded. and now that herd has not only prov ed a valuable food supply for the In- Hans but gives promise of becoming a national asset. There are now in Alaska over reindeer and they an- increasing at a wonderful rat". There are In that ter ritory 400,000 square mile of frozen 'nndra, utterly useless for anything but reindeer pasturage, but capable I IgsStea 10.000,000 deer and it is es- -J 1IAVF :t tvMion that those in ctisrgw or the common school in New YorWcitj and elsewhere are trying to do too much. I think wo are trying to RAGS THK CHILDREN TOO MUCH. The result is that wo do not teach them well. There nre TOO MAXY SITBJKCTS TAIV.HT TO THK CHILI Kl-N. in my be lief. When yon overload chil. Iron they get a disgust for the wholo thing, and they do not learn much. I know that was my experienco when I was in the common schools myself. I think a large percentage, if not the largest percentage, of children in our schools are just Srr.MI'KCiED. They just about hnro their noses above water struggling to breathe. They have more than they can do. We try to teach them too much, and the result is they enmo out with a SUPERFICIAL KNOWLEDGE about a lot of things, but no accurate knowledge about anything. And another view of it is that this overeducating of them makes them DIS INCLINED TO WORK WITH THK1B HANDS. That I am absolutely certain of. WE ARE NOW BRINGING BOYS AND GIRLS OUT OF THE COM MON SCHOOLS WHO ARE TAUGHT SO MUCH AND WHO THINK THEY KNOW 80 MUCH THAT THEY WON'T WORK ANY LONGER WITH THEIR HANDS. THEY 8IMPLY SAY THAT THEY WON'T; THAT THEY HAVE BEEN EDUCATED.

The most not sbli features of the Industry In 1911, according to H. D.

Not withstanding a decreased output of copper in some states, iuc in part, M In Montana, to prearranged curtail ment, the total production ot copper was greater In 1911 than in any pre vious year except itno. The output of lead and of mixed ores was also not ably heavy in 1911. Increases in output of gold are indi cated by early Bgures published by the dire, tor of tin mint as follows: Idaho.

I have hut one policy that is the same today, yesterday and tomorrow to enforce the law to the best of my ability and power In the Interest of the rnerkan people. That Is my policy lr. nutshell. In the pa d I have given tin- people the benefit of any rcasonaMe doubt. For this I have been eritlclzed. I sreiOOBSO su h criticism. (Jndef the law I am the only person " ho tands between the consumers tin- peoplo ami tin manufacturers and j rodlleers. The people cannot ap peal, and if I decide against them their ' ause is lost In mini I cdoriipt Ion. ( n the other hand, if I deeide against tin- inanuf.o turer he can lake hi ease court, where In is protected by the blind goddess. The manufacturer, i decided ,o I . a ' a v 1 v r the consuming1 public This musl not lie o ci looked ft in for this rea son that I give the public the bOOSfh I UM ibsmt. I shall continue to do In the future. It is tommyiot and folly for news- t oi of food, and I discover that they have "been usfsl, the manufacturer will hear from me. The law means Just what it says in this regard. I never hae recommended and nev er will rsrcMllinsoO prosecution in s case where in my opinion the evidence Is riot snlfh lent to warrant a convic tion. Hut it must always be a question oi fact and not of law which shall de termine whet lor a ease shall be tried. The law is plain. When the facta show that a spccm.d article is nils braadedi It is for the courts to de termine any legal points which may be Involved and not for any government ottjeei OWtslde Of the courts. This Is assuming that the facts In the case In question show or seem to show viola tion of the la w . Th-- i a, w speaas for Itself and there should be no difficulty on tho part of the manufacturer in ascertaining what 1 means. Having found out what it ooans they know how to obey It When Ii says that certain deleterious Miibstancc are not to be used It means ii If there la any doubt aa to the id leti riousness of a tfven substance Ibe people should have the benefit of It.
