Mrs. Ida Lock wold was arrested Tues day night charged with murdering two of her children. According to the j police the woman has not only con fessed to killing the two of which she is accused, but four Others a,s well. Her husband. Ole Leekwold, also was arrested, but later released, the otllcerK being convinced that he was Ignorant of the manner in which his children met their deaths. The offi cers say the woman acknowledged ad ministering quantities of a liquid fly poison, but how she succeeded in pet ting the children to .swallow it she would not tll. The first victim died In 1905 and the last in Jul v. 1013. Leekwold declares that all six of the children died under almost identical c i re u ms t a nee s. The family physician who treated the last two children, says that he was surprised when he found them dead, but believed that death had come from natural causes and made : the death certificates accordingly. o ascribed cholera morbus as the cause of df ath in each Instance. Mr Leek wold is r.2 years old. Says Physicians Should Be Broad Minded Men, Willing to Investigate New Theories, With Unprejudiced Minds. Investigation and Progress the Key to Success. The man who rides a hobby Is usually a tiresome man to encounter. Ho is generally a narrow minded hikrot, who has based his opinions on a limited amount of investigation, his channel of thought being so con stricted as to admit very few ideas aside from those laid down in the code of ethics which govern his pet cult or ism. .-'ueh men are a menace to the advance of scientific progress and research, and they become (spe cially dangerous- when engaged in tho practice of medicine. They generally limp through life on t-io mental crutches of .some great tbii.ker who has passed away, leaving behind him only such literature as m-.-t the requirement or his time, and totally unfit to be applied to present ilav conditions. The time was when the practice of medicine consisted of a mass of super stition, the man of medicine being, in the minds of the laity, vested with t-ome great supernatural power which enabled him to cure all manner of diseases. While the sc ience of medicine has made rapid strides in the last few decades, we still find those engaged In the practice who date their ethics back to the time of Hypoerafes, and whose system of practice is scarcely advanc ed beyond that period, when blood letting and the application of leeches was considered the acme of medical science. The scientific ar.d successful man of medicine to-day is be who has shaken off the shackles of creeds and dogmas, whose opinions arc founded on clear common sense and reason, deducted by careful study and. research into the medical literature of all school:; of practice. Su,!i investigation, if un prejudiced, will enaMe him to cull from each system that which sterns most logical, and give to him that sum of knowledge which should form a concrete bas's for an intelligent line of medical practice. Investigation of this character has a tendency to widen ones scope of thought, temper iheir attitude toward their fellowmen with Justi and char ity, and places the mmd in that highlv receptive mood in which new- thoughts1 are iziadly received. This- for many years has been the! standard of medical requirement which Ir. Bartlctt. the specialist in. charge of the United Doctors South Bend Institute has set for himself. He ha:? striven conscientiously to ke.p to the front of the ever advanc ing rank of his profession. How well; be lias succeeded the manv letters of his grateful patents as they app. ar in the daiiv papers most amplv tes tify.

TAKES LOCAL SPECIALIST MAKES STATEMENT FEDERAL CONTROL IS ICESSARK TO TF S Engineers Who Went Over Ohio Districts Find Much of the Loss Was Due to Arti ficial Contraction. WASHINGTON, Oct. 1. Immedi ate legislation to place under federal control the construction of all bridges and their approaches and to prevent encroachments upon channels In trib utaries on navigable rivers was rec ommended in a report submitted to See.v. Garrison Tuesday by the board of army engineers appointed t in vestigate the floods wnich devastated the Ohio valley last spring. Artificial contraction of liver chan nels and their adjacent flood plans, v.hich caused the disaster, the board declared can be prevented only by systematic, comprehensive control by the central government without inter ference .from the state authorities. The report written by Lieut. Col. Francis R. Shunk. and transmitted through Rrigidier Gen. Rosscll. chief of the arm engineers, was given gen eral approval by both Secy. Garrison and Gen. Rosseil. "The board has ben much im pressed in its examination." said the report, "by the evils of divided con trol of the water courses. The ob structions which have been placed along the various streams ought never to have been put there, but since the control of rivers is In the twilight zone between the spectres of federal and state authority. It was developed that what was anybody'. business was no body's business, and no effective au thoritv has been exercised by any body." "These rivers (Ohio tributaries) are feeders of a navigable stream and have an important effect on the regime of the Ohio river and it is the opinion of the board that the authority of the United States should be exercised to prevent encroachments upon them exactly as in the case of navigable streams. The board further urges that immediate steps be taken to ex ercise such authority, since bridges and other structures are to be rebuilt at once and there is evident danger in several places that they may be re built in an obstructive manner." Describing the conditions in the flood territory, the report said: "Building lines have been pushed forward into the streams, bridge abut ments have been carried out beyond proper limits, piers so placed as to further choke the channels, and deck bridges ith insufficient vertical clear ance h ve been used instead of throug': hedges at proper elevations. On the rtood plains, cities and towns have been located as to act as dams and railroad embankments have been carried from bluff to bluff. All these by banking up the water above them caused differences of level which de veloped currents of high velocity, which caused the unusual damages of the floods, such as destruction of houses and bridges, tearing up streets and loss of life." Board Approves Plans. The board approved flood preven tion plans tentatively worked out from Columbus. O.. but pointed out that unless a means of escape for water delivered to the lower reaches were provided the flood would merely be transferred from one point to an other. "This indicates," the report con tinued, "the necessity of .adopting a comprehensive plan for the Scioto valley, to which plan the special pro jects for the various towns must be accommodated. Columbus. Dayton and Hamilton have provided for such surveys as are necessary for their own particular purposes, but so far as the board knows, no comprehensive sur vey is being made that includes all of the information necessary for solving the problem of flood control of any stream in the Ohio river basin." Tho board reported that It was not present prepared to recommend means of preventing the occurrence of high stages in the rivers due to excessive rainfall. A site for a reservoir near Kenton, O., was examined, but the engineers believe prospects for sites in other parts of the Ohio basin, notably Pennsylvania. West Virginia and Ken tucky are better and recommends fur ther investigation. They also recom mend that the work of formulating a plan of ;lood control be entrusted to the army engineers at Pittsburgh who already have taken up the problem.

FRATERNITY WILL HELP THE SGRIBES President Says Question is One Between Men and Papers Will Back Member if He is Unable to Fill Contract. NEW YORK, Oct. 1. Baseball players who write articles for news papers of the coming world's series will have the support of the Base ball Players' fraternity, it was an nounced Tuesday by David L. Fultz, president of the organization. Fultz made a statement regarding the rule laid down by the NaMona! commission prohibiting players of the competing team from writing on the. champion ship games or allowing their names to be signed to articles written by others. "We do not pass upon the status of the player-author, as in our opinion that matter rests entirely with the players and the paper Itself." said Pres. Fultz. referring to the fra ternity's attitude toward the National commission's rule. "But if our sup port should become necessary to en able one of our members to carry out a contract which he has had a perfect right to enter into and which another has entered into with him in good faith, we would hack ,him up to the limit." Fultz characterized as "absurd" all talk that the series would be called off If players refused to heed the ban against their efforts as writers. The attitude of the players toward the rule will be taken up Monday when the National commission meets here to complete arrangements for the world's series. Officials of the New York club an nounce that they have returned $50, 000 to the persons who sent the money to buy tickets to the championship games. Under the rules, no mail or ders for tickets are to be honored and would be purchasers must await their turn at the gates. The applications came from all parts of the country. John B.
