Tuberculosis is a chronic disease caused by germs. It is the most common and fatal of all l . ' -. uiseases. it may ettect any organ or part of the body. It is a house disease and breeds in tilth and dirt. Consumption is tuberculosis of the lungs. It is not inherited, but prin cipally spread by the consumptives habit of spitting. The largest number of deaths occur in the crowded parts of the large cities. Anyone may get consumption or tu berculosis. Adults generally suffer from consumption while- children are crippled by tuberculosis of the Umes, hump-back and spine disease, etc. Every death from tuberculosis is un necessary for tuberculosis is prevent able, communicable and curable. Co-operation in this campaign is sought from clergymen, advertisers, school teachers, fraternal organizations, legislators and officeholders, merchants, physicians and health o.'ticers, labor un ions, editors. Results hoped for separation of the tuberculosis in prisons, hospitals for in sane and almshouses. That the sick may bo made well and the well may keep well. Fresh air leagues in every county as as part of a State organization, having for its motto, "No Tuberculosis in Ten nessee in 1915." All visitors to the State Fair should study the tuberculosis exhibit in Health Department. The advanced step of the Chairman of Health for Woman's Department in eo-operating-ftith the City Health Board and Anti-Tuberculosis League of Ten nessee shows that the work has been undertaken in a broad', sympathetic and public-spirited manner that prom ises important educational and prevent ive results. . Tuberculosis, however, is not the only subject of the health campaign this year. Fevers, their causes and preven Hon, will be discussed by prominent physicians of Nashville. Dr. R. L. Jones, City Bacteriologist, will givo tests for pure milk, water and foodstuffs. Protection for children will be made a strong feature of the lectures, and ev ery means suggested to reduce prevent able disease among the school children to a minimum. Proper care and feeding of infants will be subjects discussed in day nur sery of Woman's Building. Different health topics will bo given each day and for the benefit of visitors a programme is being prepared of all work in the tent the hours, subjects, and names of lecturers, and it will be freely distributed. Nashville Banner. Call 150 for coal of any kind. Arrested for Forgery. Hickman, Ky., Sept. f. O. L. Wiggs, a resident of this city, and a well known shoe salesman, was arrested in St. Louis a few days ago by Detec tives Kenna and Ferie on a charge of embezzlement and forgery, made by a business man of this city. Sheriff Goalder Johnson went to St. Louis after Wiggs and returned here with him Monday. - In 'lefauit ot bond lie was placed in the county jail to await trial, which will bo had at the Fulton County Circuit Court here the third Monday of this month. Mr. Wiggs returned with out requisition papers, anu claims that lie will be able to explain everything. There seems to be considerable worth less paper along his trail of the past few days. It is alleged that among other things he drew a check on the Washing ton Bank of St. Louis payable to him self for 1,0'Jo.lO and signed the name lfatnbcrgcr Bros., to it a shoe linn which he has been representing. Being unable to cash the check, he got f."0 from a Hickman man and advanced the heck as security. T. N. Threlkeld, of Cairo, III., is one of the last and least complainants. He writes that Mr. Wiggs got $5 from him, giving him a check on Farmers' ik Mer chants' Bank of Hickman. The check was returned to him marked' "No Funds." Other rumors would indicate that the Haniberger Shoe Company will come up aliotit f GOO or f 800 short a St. Louis firm, and it would seem that Wiggs is wanted worse in Missouri than Ken tucky. Other charges are coming in, and to what extent he is involved will not be known until the matter is given a legal sifting. Have You a Baby? Then watch it closely.
