Trnsn.w, ArcrsT r., mis Paris to Spend Island uy wiixiam g. sm:rm;iu. PA HI.-". Aus?. "Go and look at It. I can't tell you how bad it is. for I've nvrr sen anybody yet who could describe tho island of Tuberculosis,'' saiJ Paul Strauss, a national .-enator of Kranc to me. "Hut I can tell you that it is to bo demolished. The l.siund of Tuborru lnsis must go, for it menaces the lin cst mansions in Paris, well as the lowliest homes. We are' goinj; to Fjit'nd 4 0 millions of dollars to destroy it." And ." I wont to see the Island of Tuberculosis, which Paris has Just d;soered in its midst and which it, with so much horror and expense In tends to demolish, and found it only an ordinary slum. These French are very excitable, n.s all the world knows. When they dis covered this slum they immediately arranged to tear down the ancient, gre.tt wall of stone that protected the city hundreds of years ago, but v.ouldn't stop an ordinary' battery with the guns of today, and on the hundreds of .acres thus pained they Intend to erect model homes where the -working people of Paris may live. Forty million dollars' worth of ex citement over slums that many Amer ican cities wouldn't even notice! Tho Island of Tuberculosis isn't far from the central market of Paris. In that slum district seven out of 12 per sona dlo of diseases growing out of Xoul air and filth. 'Everybody ?eems poor here," I said to a withered old woman sitting on a very ordinary doorstep of a very 'ordinary and American-looking slum iTrjildimr. "Very poor," fhe said. "But we i pick rags and papers and make a ; living." "Have you any children M Oh, they died long ago. They were ; Hot strong. No. Hut J was born Strong, in tho country. My husband I -was not born in the country. He died jnvith, tuberculosis." (. "Have many died?" Nearly every one I know. I know more dead people than I do live ones. I havo been here 12 years and I am 128' Sh looked, except for her scraggly. Stjlack !hair, as If she were 70. "If they Etop U3 we will starve," .he added. Be-sldo her was a filthy sack, half opened. In it were bits of tin, papers, cigar and cigaret ends, decayed fruit. For the rag pickers of Paris, who live In the slums, are the jackals of the city. They pick it clean, of every thing but the mot utmost filth, early every morning. There are places where they can sell almost every im aginable thing they can find on the pavements. I didn't see any more filth in Paris' Island of Tuberculosis nor any more misery than 1 have seen in the slums of more than one contented American city. Just as many persons die. In our flums of tuberculosis, and in them is Just as much a menace to clean homes, as in tho slums of Paris. The new law In France that deals mlth the Island of Tuberculosis is very simple. Jt takes all taxes from homes built for working men. In most American cities, builders are haled into court and forced to pay fines for building good homes for working men; that is, they are taxed for every working man's home they build. In Paris, city commissioners are to be appointed to pass on the building of working men's houses and to fix the limit of rental. Tho new homes will rent for 56 a month, and for every child that is hern into the home the rent will bo decreased 50 cents a month until five children aro born. And, by tho present plan, even home will have a llttlo garden. KISSES NURSE WHEN HIS MONEY IS FOUND )GrccIc Ivosca a Roll of $3Sr In Hos pital and Starts I-ipcr Search For Treasure. IXKHAIIT, Jnd., Auc. f. When T"red Ilionas. a jreek laborer recently injured while employed by the Lake Khore. waa about to the leave the new General hospital, where he had been "underpin?: treatment, he missed his trousers anil at the same time remembered having placed his savings 5385, in one o? the pockets before coming to the institution. Instantly there was a wild howl from the foreigner and the nurses had considerablo difficulty in quiet ing the man and learning his trouble. Miss Maloney. the matron, was cer tain that Hlonas wearing apparel ha 1 been brought along In the transfer of patients from the Clark hospital to th-e new building. Then began a search in which Ilionas and every member of the nursing corps took part. It was Hlonas himself, clad only in his nightgown and shoes, found the gar ment on a pile of tiling, where It had lain sineo last Thursday. The Greek phoved his hand into the pocket and brought forth the missing treasure, wrapped in a piece of old paper. Twix cries of joy and uttering ex clamations in a foreign tongue, llion ns grabbed the nearest nurse and smothered her with kisses. The oth er members of the corps tied. The trousers, which were old and patched. Here thought to have been those discarded lw another patient nnd for that reason had Leon thrown out upon the tiling to be gathered up by the rag man. ni'Ai: niAUi.r.s vi:iii.i:k to.

CHARGE RAILROAD WITH VIOLATIONS Action Taken Against tho P,ig Four a a Ilcsult of Crowing Acci dent Sunday, KLKHAKT. Ind.. Aug. :,. As a re sult of Sunday's accident at the Plg Four's Middlebury st. crossing in which Liveryman D. R. Powles and Undertaker C. Edwin Walley were in jured when an excursion train crash ed into a funeral procession: City Atty. Kobert K. Iroctor late Monday afternoon fi!ol an affidavit In the city court charging the Pig Four company with ten violations of the crossing ordinance. Demand is made for $100 fine in each case nno in ,..u i, i.i.vR. 1 The stipulated violation is the fail- ure of the company. to have a flagman George E. Cimmerman Democratic Candidate For Councilman FIR5fWARD AT PRIMARIES AUGUST 6. Has resided with his family at 937 W. LaSalle Ave nue for the last 19 years. Came to South Bend 29 years ago, when he was 20 years of age. He opened a drug store for himself in 1891 at the corner of Washing ton and LaPorte Avenues. Five years ago he moved from that location to the corner of Portage Ave. and Rex St., where he is in business ' at the present time. Shortly after coming to South Bend Mr. Cimmerman in 1884 became a member of the old volunteer hook and Ladder company and served until the paid fire de partment was installed by the city. Being well known to the citizens of the First Ward it is unnecessary to say .that, if nominated and elected to the City Council he will give the same thought and attention to the duties of that oflice as in the past he has given to his business, in which he has been successful. He has always been a Democrat. Of unquestioned pri vate character Mr. Cimmerman merits the considera tion and the vote of Democrats of the First Ward at the coming Primary, Wednesday. He will appreciate votes cast for him, and if elected will reciprocate by offering clean, honest, and industrious service as City Council man. Advertisement.
