Twenty-Five Thousand Miles
Long From the Mississ
ippi Valley Every
Indianapolis,lnd., Sapt. 11.
A fqaeral procession 25,000 miles
long, winding its dreary way en
tirely around the earth ; an army
of 500,000 pale, emaciated sol
diers, a pyramid of coffins three
times as tall as the tallest of
'the giant piles that have made
Egypt famous. These are only a
few of the reasons for the Missis
sippi Valley Conference on Tn
bercalosis, which meets here on
Sept. 20th and 80th and Octt Ut,
They are "real" reasons too, that
anyone will understand when it
is pointed out that each year in
tho Mississippi Valley, 100,000
moo, women and children fall
viotims to tuberculosis, some
times known as consumption or
the "white plague." Could these
100,000 fanorals bo held at one
' time, the string of hearses, car
riaeos and pill bearers would
tpsk one gigantic, awe inspir
. io4 ciftego, long enough to reach
entirely around the earth and
some to sparo.
Aiui-Tubercuiosis workers es
timate that there are-cow living
in the Mississippi Valley afleasr
00,000 persons nor afll cted
with the disease and that the
coffins filled each year by the
victims of this preventable mala
dy would make a pile higher
than any known structure of an
cients of modern timer.
For the purpose of co-ordinat
ing the forces that direct -the
crusade against tuberculosis tn
the Mississippi Valley, and these
agencies include state and city
health boards, sanatorium heads,
visiting nurses, newspaper men,
club women and representatives,
of anti - tuberculosis societies,
mora than 1,000 delegates from
eighteen states will discuss the
topic "The Best Tuberculosis
Prevention" for three days at the
Mississippi Valley Conference
on Tuberculosis which meets here
Sspt. 29ch and OOtb and Oct. 1st.
There will be sub topics of
course, but the general theme of
tha Conference will hinge on the
oldjadage "An ouuee of proven'
tiou is worth pounds of cure.
Headquarters for the Conference
have been opened at 210 Public
Savings Bldg., this city, and any
person in the Mississippi Valley
interested in tho prevention of

Of course, therefore, the Sin
Francisco earthquake was a fine
thing for business. Would it not
be a goqd thing for us to burn
down all of onr cities? Just think
of the demand for labor aud raw
material which would result 1
This is fooli'h, of course, but
to support the manufacture and
sale of liquors because it con
sumes some raw material and
employs some labor is just as
foolish as to advocate the burn
ing of Cnicago because the re
building of the city would re
quire billions of dollars' worth
of material and hundreds of mill
ions of dollars' worth of labor,
The necessity of rebuilding a
burned city imposes upon the
country a tremendous drain of
resources. All the people must
be taxed to make good the worth
ot every day of labor and every
bushel of grain used in the man
ufacture of liqiors.
The laboring man cannot af
ford to ignore longer the fact
that every dollar which goes iuto
the saloon still represents an ab
solute and total oconomic loss of
labor and material. Upon the
working man is throvyn the great
part of the burden of making
this good,
We would bo fortunate if labor
and raw material constituted the
entire loss to America because
of the l.quor traffic. But we
muft not. forget the lost uitu

health, the lost efficiency which
