This is a long way after "1511a," and
though the verse is bad, it tells the
story of digestion well. The process of
maturing food for conversion into bodj
strength and energy was never well
understood until recently. We had al
together false ideas we believed that
the stomach churned the food, and in
order to bo healthy it had to be kept as
busy as the chief stoker on the Steam
boat Hades. There's nothing in that
theory. What we require from the
stomach, in order to be robust, bright
and pleasant, aud keep smiling, is to
have a plenty of digestive juice flow
into tho food and get mixed up with it.
That's what we need—and that's what

State Sanatorium for Tuberculosis.
The state sanatorium for the treat
ment of incipient cases of tuberculosis
has now been in operation si* months,
having been opened for the reception of
patients since February 1, 1908. The
rapidity with which the beds are being
filled shows olearly the need of such an
institutiou. More than this, the num
ber of applicants that have been re
fused admittance as not coming under
the classification "incipient," points to
the vital importance of establishing
hospitals for the care of advanced cases.
Up to the first of .luly 105 cases had
been received for treatment, while for
the same period of time over 200 were
The aim of tho sanatorium is three
fold- First, it takes the uninstructed
friends to whom he may unwittingly be
a menace and place him in a group of
people, afflicted in a like manner, who
are being disciplined and taught the
fundamental principles of the "open
treatment. Second, it gives the
poor tuberculosis patient the opportun
ity of receiving proper care and treat
ment. Third, it aims to cure the pa
tient, thus giving back to the state a
life restored to its working capacity
The person suffering from tuberculosis
who is unaware that tho disease hat
fastened itself upon him, may be throw
ing from his lungs, quite unsuspecting
ly, millions of "death-dealing" germs.
l*f he is fortunate enough to learn the
nature of his malady before it has be
come advanced, he has the opportunity
of retiring to the sanatorium with
reasonable hope of cure, thus sparing
himself years of suffering and invalid
ism, and better still, lessening the dan
ger of infection to those about him.
In this sojourn at the sanatorium he
learns facts concerning his disease, im
portant to him as an individual and as
one of a community. Most deeply and
persistently impressed upon his mind
are the now well known truths—that
tuberculosis is caused by a specific
germ, and that it is transmitted by the
dried sputum, carried about in the dust,
of those afflicted with the disease. He
learns that in such an institution dan
ger is reduced to a minimum by the
burning of sputum in its moist and
harmless state and sterilizing any and
everything suspected of containing
tuberculosis matter. Of almost equal
importance with a knowledge of the
disease is the personal factor "courage"
in the struggle to overcome the disease.
The desire for the comforts of life and
all outside interests must be secondary
if he would effect a cure. It requires a
"mind fixed on its set purpose" and un
faltering zeal to live out of doors night
and day with tho thermometer hovering
about zero, to take milk and eggs
abundance, especially where there is a
natural antipathy to them, and to rest,

more pleasant and convenient to take
medicine and let it do the work.
The germ thrives and multiplies in
damp, vitiated air, hence the need for

nourishing food and the rest increase

six or eight months at the sanatorium,

though the disease was discovered in
its early stage, no alternative was open
to such an one. He worked until death
with bony finger beckoned him to re
pose. Where means are lacking they
are not required, and is given every
care and attention that will help him
on the road to recovery.
The fact that this disease lays hold

great majority of cases, just when the
earning capacity is the greatest, means
an immense financial loss to the state,

The Ringing Brothers are celebrating
this season the twenty-fifth jubilee

in the past in the way of amusements.
They have searched the world for novel

acts, they have had builded in foreign
studios and shops the finest outfit ever
used by a circus, and they have so en

twelve acres of ground are now requir

The circus this year numbers 1,280
men, women and children, 650 horses, 30
camels, 40 elephants, 110 cages of ani
mals, 85 double-length railroad cars and
300 parade vehicles. The main tent is
is the largest ever built. The great
program is given in three rings, on two
stages, in a vast hippodrome track and
in the spacious dome. There are 375
performers, 800 of whom are making
their first tour of America under the
management of the Ringling Brothers.

Mr. Wellman was born in Mentor,
Ohio, in 1858. At 14 he began his news
paper experience, establishing at that
age a weekly paper in the little town
of Sutton, Neb. In 1884 he became the
Washington correspondent of the Chi
cago Herald, for which paper he visited
the West Indies in 1892 and located the
landing place of Columbus, marking the
spot with a huge stone monument.
In 1894 he made his first dash for the
pole, reaching the latitude of 81 degrees
northeast of Spitzborgen. In 1898 he
tried the same fascinating quest again,
penetrating as far as Franz Josef Land.
On both trips he had wonderrul success
in discovering new islands and secur
ing new scientific data which have been
of great value to the American Geo
graphical Society. His voluminous
writings for scientific periodicals and
popular magazines have shown the
