morning, Nov. 20, at 12:30, at the
home of her daughter, Mrs. C.

five months and three days. Hers was
a beautiful Christian character, and
she was truly a "Mother of Israel"
whose life was an inspiration to child

Johanna (Lundell) Hoglund was
born in Forsmarks parish, Stockholms

ceded her. She spent much of her
time at the home of her son August,
who is a widower, caring for her moth
erless grandchildren. In later years
she has visited at intervals with all
her children and during the last three
years has made her home with her
son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs
G. Sandberg. She is survived by a
brother and sister in Sweden seven
children—Johan Erik Hoglund and
Mrs. Sofia Matson, of Sweden Mrs
Kristine Sandberg, August Hoglund,
Charles Hoglund, and Peter Hoglund
of this city and Mrs. Marie Hakanson

The Head ofState Association
Talks to Good Willmar
A representative audience of Will
mar people gathered at the Commer
cial Club rooms last night to hear Dr.
H. W. Hill, secretary of the Minne
sota Public Association, lecture on
"Germs and Disease," or as he also
expressed it on "The New Public
Dr. Hill was introduced by the local
Health Officer, Dr. J. M. Rains, who
stated that the speaker was here on
invitation of the County Public Health
Association of which Mrs. H. C. Han
sen is president.
Dr. Hill spoke nearly an hour in a
general way giving the results of the
latest researches regarding disease
germs and their propagation in the hu
man body. Many of his statements
were somewhat startling, and at var
iance with the usually accepted the
ories on the subject.
Dr. Hill first gave a general descrip
tion of the disease germs, and used
several striking illustrations to con
vey an idea of their minuteness. Next
he dwelt on the fact that the human
body was the most favorable incubat
or for the propagation of these germs,
its warmth, moisture and other qual
ities making it a place where these
disease germs would grow and multi
ply at a terrific rate when left un
checked The only source of infec
tion is those human beings in which
these disease germs have secured a
foothold. The germs do not live long
after being ejected from the human
body, except in very exceptional con
ditions, therefore most infection comes
from taking in at the mouth immedi
ately the saliva and germs from the
bodies of other persons. Dr. Hill cit
ed many instances how these transfers
are made, mainly by means of the
hands, and concluded that the only
manner in which such transfer can be
avoided is to isolate the person af
fected with dangerous germs. That
is the manner in which Europe eradi
cated leprosy which was generally
prevalent a few hundred years ago.
Dr. Hill believed that if every person
afflicted with tuberculosis of the lungs
were properly isolated and taken care
of the disease could be practically
stamped out in fifteen years. People
are very alarmed about small-pox and
other such contagious diseases, but
the deathrate from small-pox in Min
nesota is only 6 to 7 per year, while
two thousand lives are lost annually
in the state from tuberculosis. The
estimated number of prevalent cases
is two to each thousand, which would
mean about forty cases in Kandiyohi
county. Dr. Hill outlined the provis
ions of law under which county san
atoria are built and maintained.
After his main address Dr. Hill con
tinued to speak for some time on ques
tions asked or suggested. Having
stated that tuberculosis germs requir
ed oxygen to live and that was the
reason they preferably developed in
the lungs, the speaker was asked how
fresh air could benefit a patient
The answer was that the idea that
fresh air breathed into the lungs would
kill the germs was a mistaken one,
but that such treatment was good for
the patient generally and especially to
create appetite for nourishing food
which is one of the essentials in com
batting the disease. The doctor ex
pressed the opinion that open windows
and window tents were not as good for
this purpose by any means as being
out in the open air.
In reply to another question as to
the proper food for tuberculosis pa
tients the speaker said that any nour
ishing food which the patient preferr
ed which could be digested and assim
ilated would answer. It was a mis
take to insist on the patient taking
foods which were distasteful to them.
In regard to the effect of alcohol
on germs Dr. Hill said alcohol was a
positive detriment to anyone suffering
from any germ disease, diminishing
the resistive powers of the patient.
He even exploded the old snake bite
theory that whiskey is good for rat
tle snake bites.
Dr. Hill has the faculty of making
this scientific subject very interesting
to the lay mind, and all those attend
ing were glad that they came out.
Those present included eight of the
medical fraternity of the city, three
county commissioners and many pro
fessional and business men and farm
ers and their wives of Willmar and vic
inity. Dr. Hill was entertained while
here by Supt. Dr. G. H. Freeman of
the State Hospital.

Best Train On Great Northern
Connects Willmar Direct
With Chicago.
The crack train of the Great North
ern system, Train No. 1, The Oriental
Limited, made its first run thru Will
mar last Sunday. This gives Willmar
a through train from Chicago. It runs
over the Burlington road beyond the
Twin Cities. It comes to Willmar
while the middle day trains are all
assembled in the Willmar passenger
yard, and stops here five minutes. It
comes in on the first track. This
train coming at this time has made
different arrangements necessary for
the other outgoing trains. The train
from St. Paul now runs in on the third
track and the one from St. Cloud on
the fourth track. The train from the
west comes in on the second track
and the one from the south on the
first track. A fifth track would now
be a convenience in the handling of
the trains. The following is the new
corrected time table of passenger
trains at the Willmar station:
