From the mid dle of n large block owned by the Traction company, situated In the heart of the city, on one side of which Is the state house and on the other the most beautiful and lofty soldiers' and sailors monument In the United States, rises the now famous Traction building, erected three years ago at a cost exceeding one million dollars, with its ppaclous and handsome ter minal station adjoining, conceded to be the finest in the world. Nine tracks enter this station, ac commodating 12 Interurban lines and divisions which run In all directions.

In 1906 more than 5,000,000 passengers were carried to and from the terminal sta tion, and It Is estimated that In 1907 the number will reach 6,000,000. These figures do not Include passen gers carried between points outside of the city limits. The benefits resulting to the peo ple of Indiana with its 1000 miles of Interurban roads, controlled by va rious companies, are duplicated In every other Btate of the union enjoy ing a like transportation. Employ ment hus brum created for thousands. Social conditions have been wonder fully Improved. Crowded cities, thriving towns and villages, hamlets and rural districts are all happily united and share alike the advantages of Interurban lines. There Is an awakening and thrill of life in every town and village through which an Interurban line runs; never felt before. Commercial opportuni ties which lay dormant are made pos sible and become profitable realities. The reciprocal relations which de velop between city and town, and be tween the village and farm are bene ficial to all.

Oregon's death rate during 1907 was approximately nfhe In every 1000 Inhabitants, according to Dr. R. C. Yenney, secretary of the state board of health, In his annual report, which has recently been compiled, says a Portland paper. This low rate Is looked upon as a remarkable showing, and It Is believ ed thnt It Is not excelled by any other state In the union. To a certain extent the figures In his report are Incomplete, for the rea son that a number of the counties send no report of their vital statistics to the state board of health. As a basis for his figures he has taken the carefully prepared statistics of 14 of the moxt populous counties of the state from which regular monthly health reports are recolved, and In which the death rate would naturally be larger than In less densely popu lated coiftities. The state has been unusually free of Infectious diseases during tho past year. The only contagion was In Grant county, where they had 111 cases ot smallpox, due largely to the county Improperly handling the situation. Altogether there were 317 cases of this disease In the state. He said that this Is the most easily controlled con tagious disease and that through vac cination and quarantine it may be eliminated. He classes the failure of the Grant county officials In prevent ing the, disease to spread as gross negligence. One of every 10 deaths In the state was due to tuberculosis, a total of 445. Of the G58 cases of typhoid fe ver reported, 103 deaths resulted. There wee 572 cases of diphtheria, with 62 deaths; 406 cases of scarlet fever with 13 deaths, and 1313 cases of measles with 26 deaths. An inspection of the Btato Institu tions during the year by the board found all except the state Insane asy lum and the Weston normal school in good sanitary condition. In re gard to the former, he deplores the lack of good water supply and of separate wards where patients with tuberculosis may be separated from those not Infected with the disease. He makes the announcement that 20 per cent of the deaths at the asylum ate due to tuberculosis, and In many instances the disease is contracted af ter the patient arrives at the asylum. The Weston normal the board found to be so overcrowded, poorly ventilat ed and lighted and seriously In need of general renovation. Municipal ownership of water sys tems Is urged In the report, as it be lieves this to be the ultimate solution of the pure water problem. From statistics tlfe board has agreed that municipal ownership, In the great ma jority of cases, furnishes a better and more adequate supply than through private sources. In the report it was urged that spe cial care should be given to school ".dilation In order to prevent tho spread of disease unions school chil dren, better railway sanl atlfin, nnd especially In regard to disinfecting de pots and coaches, and In handling foodstuffs shipped on the cars.
