THE DIFFERENCE
fHE DIFFERENCE by New York and Montreal of Dr. Fried-
The difference in treatment by New York and Montreal of Dr. Fried
ann, claimant of a cure for tuberculosis, is very noticeable.
- Hi Club -in hand, our American medical societies \ greeted, Priedmann and
compelled him to bore a hole through their red tape for his • demonstrations.
No American doctor had come 'anywhere near a cure for tuberculosis; hence,;
in their opinion, Friedmann must be a fraud. Friedmann hadn't joined any
American > Medical [association hence, he must be welcomed with a degree of
suspicion that amounted to rank insult. : t-^^B;' \w&
But the treatment accorded Friedmann by; the Canadian medics was the
reverse. The Royal Edward institute threw open its doors and enabled Fried
mann to make a half-hundred demonstrations^ first thing. Their idea was that
4^?*, there is the slightest chance; that this German doctor has a cure for/ the
dread scourge, ethics and formalities and jealousies must not for a minute de
-[lay development of that chance. .
: , )-, The Canadians have treated Dr. Friedmann as a possible benefactor of
mankind. ' : i Those New Yorkers have treated him as a lot of Congo savages
would treat a white man who offered them quinine for their fevers. It makes
no difference whether Dr. ; Friedinann has or has not discovered all that he
claims, the attitude of the New York County Medical society, especially, has
been that of a dog in the manger, a mighty small and yellow dog, at that.
SOMETHING MORE THAN THE DIRT
|R Hartford Times bewails the abandonment of New England farms and
the trend toward the west and declares that "a reinvigorated" Connecticut
£' farm may be as good as one in the west. V^'l
* ; Your editor of reactionary New England never sees any farther than the
dirt Make Connecticut dirt profitable and her youth will not abandon it for
lowa, or Oregon, or California dirt, is his notion. But for the New England
youth there are in the great west. other things than productive dirt. There
are such ■r things as freedom from mttihess, social and vocation equality, and
. abundant opportunity. If the sons of .New England farmers were just agri
cultural engines, just content to divide up the old place when father dies and
go on digging dirt until the cows come home for the last time, as did their
fathers, the sad increase in the number of: abandoned New England farms
might be stopped. But, so long as youth and enterprise protest against sod
der-ness and reaction, the cry of the great west will be heard and men who
want to grow as men will heed it, no matter how reinvigorated the soil of New
England. . .. '-.'".
IT'S IMPORTED
L V "We frequently buy what has been imported simply because it has been
imported," says a down east editor. <r. T f ':,
I '-'.. This is true, and it has something to do with the high cost of living. Take,
for instance, such things as wines, raisins, olives, prunes, fancy sausages and
fancier millinery. . No foreign country produces these things in superiority
to the American product, and yet when milady, or Mr. Man, gives a " spread "
only ; the things with the foreign label will do. This is practically true, too,
of the whole list of canned and preserved stuffs. ;•-* :i
The handsomest costumes and most lovely millinery are made right here
in America. They sell at lower prices and contain as good material, but tho
imported hat or dress willrget first choice simply because it is imported. The
idea seems to be that the thing is more stunning, more valuable because it
comes from a long distance and, hence, bears a price that your neighbor can
not afford. This sort of conceit, or pride isn't confined to our women. Our
|; men carry a load of it of their own.
TAXES .; ' v;.3g
*CES- When the people of Tacoma pay $502,912 into the county treasury in one
/day for taxes which are really not due until next June as they did Saturday,
it indicates that prosperity is coming back to this city at a regular joy ride
[;|pace.:*::v''.";'''-;•;;;;; ■■ ' ;:, '•■'/ i-'):""';',::"^":^" -'':^if
:p%All records were broken for tax collections this year, the first 15 days
showing $1,634,197 paid in by those who wished to take advantage of the dis
count for the early ones. ;, ' r;V
Jv§%- The payment of taxes is about the best index there is to the business
conditions of a city. And they show right now that this city never was so
prosperous as it is right now. ?

Absent Minded.
In a Washington club some
time since a member of the sen

became so engrossed in some oth

burnng match in his hand until
the flame reached his fingers.
Whereat Attorney General Wick
ersham smiled, relates the Phila

"A case of absent-mindedness,"
he remarked, "that reminds me of
the experience of a certain pro

was met at the door by his wife,
