Ho told the men that he "lived In Texas, was proud of the fact and was glad that the laws forbidding the playing of cards and the drinking of alcoholic bad been paeeed and had no apology to offer to any who happened not to like them."

Fryer and Rusnell, to two members of the committee present aside from Mr. Fuqua, spoke briefly, giving asKurancea that they will aa slat wiih the undertaking, being vi tally Interested In the proposition.

In a paper read before tho South Texas Medical association. Dr. J Mark O. Ferrell, of Richmond, calls attention to the inadequate provls ion for the care of the insane in Tex as. Io part Dr. O, Farrell's paper reads aa follows; Our alienists every year, In sta tlstical reports, show u Indisputable evidence of the alarming Increase of our Insane population. These reports show not only the normal increase due to a growing population, but year by year with hcvor a halt, the per ccntage of fhe insane has gone higher and higher until their care has become of grav est importance. That asylum room is not now suf ficient for their accommodation is known to every county Judge in Tex as; that it bag never, with tho excep tion of a few brief periods, been ade quate has been told to every legisla ture for years In the biennial reports of asylum superintendents. Whenever a little additional room is doled out to an institution by a grudging legislature a rush of appli cations go 'forward and ere another spasm of generous dealing overtakes our wise solons tbe jails are again crowded with these unfortunates. Now as to results: 1day there are In jail and on poor farms of tbe state several hundred Insane people. This unasylumed insane, .while, of course, varying as to Identity and numbers, is practically conslstant. A few of those couvlcted are committed to an asylum within reasonable time, depending altogether upon the lurk of the Individual in losing his sanity during a gencrouu fit of the state and a consequent spurt la asy lum room. Some nty In Jail a year or two, nd a great many dm before provision Is ever made for their proper care. In answer lo Inquiry by mo, one of th.i asylum superinten dents wrote thsi bo had admitted to his iiiHiltuHgii patients who had beer confined In' jail for ten years. What per cent of theso peoplo do you suppose pass from tho acute to the chronic and Inctirnbln forms of Insanity through thrs Improper en vironment and lack of skllle,i atten tion? It is well known that treat ment to avail in cnrsble rases, must not only be of Intelligent direction, systematic, constant and tinder suit able conditions, but must be begun early, Tho inaane. of our Jails are almost never given any attention oth er than that received by their fellow prisoners, They cat the same food, are locked In the same cells, recelvo the same cursings If the icuard hap pens lo be brutally Inclined', and get the samo consideration In all things as do their companion Jn misery. With them ar prisoners charged with various offenses against our Isws; some guilty of daunting crim inal practices, many vt the lowest human type, .filthy us" to personal habits; these are the constaut asso ciates of the Jail Insane. Some times male and female, the criminal and the crazy all bunk together. This is not a pretty picture, nor Is It pleasant to exhibit it, but If you think it overpulnted, make your own Investigation and you will find that the average Texas Jail, while often beautiful In architectural ex terior, would put to shame the so called "Mexican dungeons" soiptly expressed to our mind the kind of prison wo would expect In a seml clvllized country, but that, we have "dungeons" at home coulj not for a moment be acknowledged. There are of course exceptions, .but In gen eral. In place of soap and water tho Idea seems to prevail that onn stink deserves another, so that the aver ago 'commissioners court provides easy money for tho" agent with the patent disinfectant. ' His stuff1 us ually costs a few dimes a barrel to make ahd nets him as niany dollars, but what's the odds' whVn It is guar anteed and kills the smell. This U iiot all you' will find. Un der the law the snerirf 6f the coun ty feeds hlH prisoners' at so much per head, the contract varying some what, but the amount paid Is barely sufficient to puTchase"and have pre pared the plainest food, especially at the preseurhlgh prices, but he Is al lowed aa profit every dollar he can squeeze out of the margin between the cost of the food and the main tenance of his prisoners.' There aro very few who do not make this margin profit him, even if it sometimes Is at th expense of human stomachs. ' As phyvkians to several hundred state convicts I have tho medical care, of numbers of those received direct from Jail after conviction. Admitted ly, -long conflnqjneut will so soften a prisoner that he i unable to do hard work when first put out, ibut r V. 4 W icca numbers of these newly received convicts' weak for the lack of food, and 11 '8 w-ell understood by tbe sergeants in charge that new men havo to bo watched to prevent their overeating, the state, by the way, providing aft ' abundance of wholesome food for tbem. This is the treatment accorded our mentally sick by tne groat state of Texas, and it' Is a thame that I hope soon to see wiped out, As n mutter of present day ex pediency, il may be tiiat the confine ment of o:iv Insane lu tho jails to gether with the criminal classes, In stead f m suitable retreats for their detention and treatment, la the very best w can do; but it Is repugnant to modem civilization that disease should be classed with crime, and it Is the duty of otir profession to lend aid in so educating 'the publUMhat justice snail finally 'fte oona MBS. DIBHF.LL MAKES CALL TO ALL WOMEN", Should Buy ' the hed Cross Xmus ' Seals ahd Further a Good Cause. The following request from Mrs J. D. Dlbrell ot Seguin, president of the Texas Federation of Woman's clubs, is self-explanatory i To the Club. Presidents: Tbe elev- enth annual convention recently ad journed' at San. Angelo passed a Ti:R-lAi;jiiCAD World- The sum of $3,000 was contrib uted from various sources dining the month of November tor tho sup port of railroad men's home, at Highland Park, 111. Tim Panhandle railroad editor while, grutcful enough to appreciate and approve tho spirit prompting these contributions, does not coincide with this met hod of supporting old and disabled om raden, who through misfortune and other causes has not been able to lay aside a small competency for old age. Some of the best men of our country aro engaged in the hazard ous occupation of railroad work nnd devote their lives to tbJa important work How many aro there la any branch of skilled labor who ar un able to provide for old. age. Many thousands. Our government nnd our states provide for their old sol diers by giving them homes. Many railroad companies re providing pension systems which are excellent methods of taking care of aged em ployes. But some of their restric tions are so severe that all can not profit from the efforts of the sys tem. We think the best method for handling this question, which is one of Importance und a growing one ' as follows. Let the four great or ders, the B. of L. K.. the II. of I K. and F., th(. 0. It. ( and the H. of it. T., each contribute an equal amount, $50,000 or such an amount as neces sary, and build und equip satisfactory quarters at tome designated point and build it In such a style and man ner as befitting to the thousands of men represented. After this home Is build let it be maintained by these organizations dividing the expense pro rata among them with reference to tbe numbers belonging to each order. This would prove an easy plun and one that is entirely feasible and should meet with the approba tion and encouragement of every man In all the four orders. This would provide aplace for those w ho needed tho benefltg of such an Insti tution and there aro many, would put the "expenso whero it belonged Instead of having a homo maintained by contributions. Further, any man who had been a member of any of these orders a number of years and still In good standing and should meet with bad luck, ho would not feel so manv qualms of conscience at going to a home supported by his brothers and which he had helped build "and support as he would In going to a place supported by con tributions. Thts Is a subject that is worthy of consideration and discus sion and we hope to hear further from this matter through other pa pers and tb Panhandle railroad man would be glad to Tecelve and publish any communication relative to this matter. Hope aonie good brother will start the matter rolling so it will get before the grand lodgo as fast as the annual meetings take place, j ' Brakeman W. D.

' Mrs. M. A. Vallaway, 323 Forest avenue, Dal las, Texas, has had many thousands of these packages shipped to her and requests that tho clubs In different towns Induce their druggists or oth er dealers in holiday goods to. send to her at once orders for these seals. All clb women ar requested to seal their Christmas packages with those emblems ot a noble band of workers. Yourg respectfully, MRS. JOSEPHINE B. DIBRELL, President T. F. W. C. These little Red Cross seals arc on tale by a number of Amarillo mer chants. Atoention is called to tbe fact that the sales are of no profit to the dealers, as they handle them only for the benefit of tbe move ments sought to be aided by the Texas Federation of Women's clubs. Amarillo ladies are Interested in this movement, and a large sale and a liberal use of the stamps will bo highly. appreciated. This is one of the means of moulding sentiment in favor of the movements sought to be forwarded, and as the cost of the at tractive litUo stickers is trivial, all, may afford them for the sealing of the Christmas packages. iioiMi .utoi r tut: utv. a 4 Mif OterhuU Arrives Mit Fan nie Overhuls hu4 returned from hot studies at lhi Denton Normal school to spend tho holidays with the family of her brother, A.
