"What every one should know" are
those, practical handy way of doing,
ignorance of whioh necessitates bo
much extra labor, tioublc anxiety and
expense.
In tho oonimon daily experience of
every one thero are hundreds of occa
sions whon a knowledge of sanitary
science, would add largely to tho suc
cess, comfort or safety of life. Tho
comfort, luxury and beauty of the
household can be largely increased by
a little study of this science
For many oentunes physicians had
a practical monopoly of whht little wai
known of tho conditions effecting the
public health, and thero seems to have
been no incentive to original investi
gation and experiment, even if the
means of prosecuting au inquiry so im
portant to all classes of the people.
To tho soioncoof chemistry we owe
tho greatest part of what has already
been learned and placed upon tecord,
of the truths whioh form the basis of
sanitary success. Those to whom the,
sanitarium must look jor the practical
application of carefully elaborated
theories of sanitary reform, are the
very ones who are now beginning to
appreciate most fully tho importanco
of sanitary science In all classes of
society, oxcopt those whitoh includo
tho degraded and ignorant, we find a
growing interost in tno means or
guar 'ing against all unhcaltbful con
ditions in person, houso and environ
ments with a large wisdom and clearer
insight into tho causo of
things, whioh have come, of progress
in scientific thought, intelligent
people do not now attiibute tho con
st queuoes of their own neglect aiid
carelessness to tho "aflliotivi dispen
sations of providenoe," whioh aro
"mysterious and past rinding out."
We are bogioning to understand how
largo a proportion of tho diseases
whioh afUiot humanity, results from
preventable causes, and that it is pos
sible, by judioious measures of sani
tary reform, to bo reduce the death
rato as to materially inoroaso tho
average duration of human life, nor
is this intorest in sanitary reform
bounded and limitod by a narrow sel
fishness. There is something broadly
humanitarian in it. Tho rioh and
middle olasecs no longer feel thut
tboy have no intorest in the welfaro
and comfort of those who enduro the
misery and utter wretchedness of
squalod poverty. Diseaso is no re
specter of persons, and a "fever
nest," in some remote and ncglcoted
quarter of a populous oity may dis
patch invisablo mnssongers of death
whioh poison tho air of broad avenues
and oleanly swept streets miles dis
tant. The enlightened self-interest
whioh is leading bo main intelligent
men and women to study tho laws of
health is exaoily tho reverse of sel
fishness, sinoo every movoment for
goneral sanitary reform, beginB with
the improvement of tho houses of tho
poor and ignorant, wno can oniy no
rodeemed from untimely death, and
saved from being tho instruments of
spreading tho Eoods of diseaso and
contagion, when those who ocoupy
tho social planes abovo thein stretoh
forth a helping hand to lift them out
of tho miro into which ttioy have fal
len. When we look about us and soo
how muoh remains to be done before
tho massoB of the peoplo shall bo
emancipated from tho diro noces
siry of living under conditions
prejudical to health and consequently
to happinoss it would almost soem as
if the task of tho sanitarian is a hope
less one. Suoh is not the case, how
ever. Wo turn with a shudder of
horror from tho records of tho past to
contemplate with satisfaction the pro
gress we have already made. People
often wonder wny we uu not uo

THE TOOLS FOUND.
The Chest of Carpenter Tools Stolon
Fro n W. H. Blake la Recovered
by Deputy PreBS Standlfer,
This morning Deputy Sheriff Press
Standifor wont down tho river about
four milos to the "Bluo Hole" and ar
rested John Henry Williams oharged
with tho thoft of a ohest of tools. On
reaching tbo camp tho box was found
in another box hiddon underneath a
quanty of bed olothes. Thero is no
doubt about tho identity of tho tools
as all of thorn are plainly stamped
with tho owners name. Williams
olaims that the property was stolen by
another man, whoso name the offioors
have, and that ho purchased it from
him not knowing that it was stolen.
The tools it will bo remembered wore
stolen ono night about two months
ago from a house boing erected by
Dr. Hathaway on Provident Heights.
The tools were of very fine make and
there was ovor $100 worth in tho box
Ever sinco the thoft the officers havo
been working on the oaso and have at

The Melton-Dunlap Jury Stood Sev
en Top Conviction and Flvo for
Acquital.
The jury in the case of the State of
Texas vs. Melton and Dunlap came in
this morning and reported that they
could not agree. They stood seven
for conviction and five for acquittal.
They were being tried on a charge of
murdoring Chick McLennan on the
night of May 2, 1891. The case is
rather a peculiar one. The two de
fendants had had trouble with some
one and were expecting an assault and
in the dark they mistook the unfor
tunate McLennan for their enemy and
thought that he was following them
with the purpose of shooting them.
In reality McLennan had not noticed
the men until they fired upon him.
The case will bo brought up at the
next term of court.
