Exhibit Includes Charts and Speci mens Showing How Disease Js Spread, Prevention and the Troper Method of Treating Tuberculosis. The tuberculosis exhibit that is to be given here the balance of this week by Dr. L. H. Peck, under the auspicies of .the state board of health opened this, morning and the first lecture was delivered my Dr; Peck at 2 o'clock tliis afternoon. The doctor was unable to give an exhibit last night owing to his outfit arriving so late in the day and for the further reason that at the last moment it was decided to hold the exhibit at the city hall instead of at the Sail Roman building as announced yesterday. From 3 to 4 p. m. the doctor lec tured to the school children. At 8 this evening he will deliver another lecture, and . this will be the pro gram each day during his stay here. The exhibit'is a very comprehen sive one consisting of charts that give figures on consumption, more especially in New York where the ex hibit was secured. The charts also illustrate the cause of the spread of the disease, the proper measures to prevent its spread, explain the means necessary in the treatment and cure of the disease, the kind of food for a consumptive and illustrate the sanita tion of the room of a tuberculosis patient. Iff addition to his lecture, the doctor and his assistant explain the exhibit and are at all times ready and willing to answer questions. Dr. Peck has been in Texas since last September, giving exhibits and lecturing on tuberculosis. In over six months time he has covered barely one-tenth of the state. He says it is the intention of the health depart ment to make these exhibis periiian ent arid that another exhibit similar to the one he has here is being pre pared and will be put on he oad in this state in a few weeks. The exhibitions and lectures aie free and are not only interesting J.nd instructive, but should be of the greatest value in educating the peo ple as to the dangers of tuberculosis, and the methods of preenMnu; jnd curing the disease.

Dentist Recently Arrived Here Driven Mad By Cocaine Habit. In the county court yesterday Dr. T. T. Cater was adjudged-insane and ordered confined in the Southwestern Insane Asylum at San Antonio.- Dr. Cater arrived in this city several weeks ago from Southwest City, Mo., for the purpose of engaging in the practice of dentistry. From the tes timony brought out yesterday, it ap pears that the cocaine habit is res ponsible for the dethronement of his reason. Since coming here, he has become a raving and dangerous man iac. About ten days ago, the doctor became more violent than usual, and the neighbors were called in by Mrs. Cater,, who had become very much alarmed and feared for her life! They in turn were forced to secure thehelp of several Mexicans and it required the combined efforts of all before they succeeded in subduing the un fortunate man, whom they were com pelled to tie w.ith ropes. While it was proved that Dr. Cater-had been subject to violent attacks of insanity before now, he had not been consid ered dangerous until recently, when the violent attacks became more fre quent. He will be confined in the county jail until such a time as he can be taken to an insane asylum. Mrs. Cater left this morning for her former, home in Southwest City, Mo.
