IF FRIEDMAN'S CURE IS TRUTH THIS IS WHAT IT WILL DO Tuberculosis kills 10.7 per cent of all the pc pie who die in the United States. That is the official figure given by the federal census of 1910. Every three minutes in the United States some one is dying of tuberculosis. That's 480 American men, women and children sent to eternity by tubercle bacilli every 24 hours. Over 175,000 persons will go down into their graves during 1913 — sent by tuberculosis—unless Friedman's discovery saves them. It is estimated that thorp are 70,000 tubercular invalids in Col orado, New Mexico and Arizona, seeking life. Out of every 100 barbers who die, 40 die of tuberculosis. Of every cigar makers who die, 30 die of tuberculosis. Over 53 per cent of the deaths among printers are due to tu berculosis; only two other trades show a higher mortality from con sumption—jewelers, gold and silver smiths —with 04 per cent, aiul cabinet makers and wood carvers, with 5G per cent. Farmers, farm laborers, bankers and brokers have the lowest consumption death rate. It has been estimated that it would take $50,000,000 spread over ten years to reduce tho consumption death rate in New York City to a quarter of what "• »ow is' Last year over $14,000,000 was spent in the United States In anti-tuberculosis work. Americans maintain 400 anti-tuberculosis associations and com mittees, 386 special tuberculosis hospitals and 26"> dispensaries. Germany has spent, during the last nine years $25,000,000 In treating Its consumptives. Consumption costs the United States A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR in money spent fighting tuber culosis, treating invalids, and losses in earning ca pacity of invalids. DR.

Labor has been trying for two years to get the eight hour law enforced on public work in Ta coma. Contractors obeyed It when they felt like it and ignored it when convenient oftentimes. The labor authorities finally ap pealed to the council to pass an ordinance in harmony with the state law. The ordinance came up for third Reading this morning. Nobody said anything. It was ready for a vote. ' Mayor Seymour finally broke the ice. "I'd liko to talk this over wit'i the city attorney," said the may or. The laboring men also asked that the ordinance provide whore a contractor worked overtime in an emergency, he must pay time and a half. "That is hardly right, that would not work on city jobs, es pecially in laying concrete where a job was not quite finished up in the evening and the men might have to work a short time over time," said Woods. Excuses began to multiply why the council did not want to pass that ordinance and finally the whole thing, which had been on the verge of passage, was re ferred to the city attorney. In the case of the Streblows it is alleged the company has been repaid the $100 which right-of- Xvay through the Sterblow farm cost in 1903, having as yet failed to construct their lino, pud asked for a return of the property to the original owners. This, the complaint says, has been refused. The Sterblows now ask that the strip through their property be tendered back to them. Upon the outcome of this suit, It is said, hinges many others of like irature.
