ROBBING CHINA.
The scientific mob of Coxoy's brigade
now on the carpet of international affairs
in China has but one moaning. it i 3
useless for the people or the government
of tii,- United States to shut their eyes to
the conclusion that their old-time friend
Russia is at the bottom of the business.
Russian agents and spies are everywhere
In China. Russian battleships and'sol
diors are in all the Chinese seas and riv
formldable force. Russia has been
iring in that quarter of the world for
a protracted English war in South Africa.
Soldiers and battleships, soldiers and bat
tleships, have been constantly passing
through Suez bound for the Pacific coast.
And Germany and France have also gath
some weapons of war into that quar
ter of the world, and have begun in Ber
lin and Paris a newspaper bombardment
of the moral ramparts of the Western
world.
Since Bismarck adopted for Germany
the protective tariff policy, and subse
quently the colonial expansion scheme,
all Europe has gone wild in pursuit of
territory and populations with exclusive
privileges of trade. South America is
lost to them, so far as European control
of tariff laws is concerned, and they
can only reach the tra.de of the Southern
republics by the subtle methods of tongue
relationship, superior banking privileges
and low prices. Africa has already been
partitioned among them, and all but Eng
land enforce in African colonies the tar
iffs in force at Hamburg, Calais, Paris
and Lisbon. China is all that is left
of the barbarian world to engage the
trade instinct of Europe, and for the
trade of China the people of the United
S are now ready to compete—for the
trade of China the government of the
United States must now be prepared. If
Bsary, to fight.
These are bold words, but the words
of truth and soberness. The integrity
of the Chinese empire must be maintain
ed at all hazards. If the Philippines are
ever to be of more than minor value to
the United States now Is the time. If
we are to manufacture iron and steel, and
flour, and cotton goods for the people of
China, now is the time for the guns of
Cavite to point towards Shanghai, and
for the government at Washington to
assure Russia and Germany and Japan
and China herself that the arsenals of all
North America will send forth millions of
accoutrements to defend the great Asiatic
empire from a European rabblement.
European colonies in China mean the
continued shipments for fifty years of
American cotton to Europe. The integ
rity of the empire means cotton mills at
every Southern water power and vast
shipments of iron and steel goods from
our Pacific ports. What American will
stand up and cry "Hands off?" The
strong hand, the strong dollar, the pow
erful battleship, the best gunners and
guns, playing in front of our diplomacy,
are our fortune makers. Nothing else
can save us from hundreds of discontent
ed mobs at home and contempt and de
struction abroad.
The Kearsarge and her sister ships are
on their way to Mediterranean waters to
collect a smaM Turkish claim. Let them
go boldly past the Dardanelles to the
gates of the Black sea, and if necessary
join in another Scbastopol at Odessa.
China should not be rabbled for European
gain.
HOW THE MACHIKB MOVES.
In one of those moments of intense
frankness which occur in the lives cf
even master politicians, Senator Platt, of
New York, has stated within the past
few' days that there would be no oc
ca ;ion whatever for the holding of a Re
publican national convention were It not
for the unfortunate complication of tha
vice presidency. He was right. He
might have gene further, and have add
ed that if it were not for the conduct of
certain foolish and obstreperous persons
like Tim Woodruff even that complica
tion would have been avoided, and the
convention resolve itself beforehand into
an agreement among less than a half
dozen statesmen of the rank of h;ir.s-:-!f
and Hanna, thu.-- saving unnecessary ex
and trouble.
There are different views to be taken
of the conditions which have thus ren
dered the holding of a national conven
tion of one of the great political divisions
of the country practically unnecessary.
To the uninitiated citizen who has not
yet become reconciled to the control'of
the machine in political as well as m in
dustrial life, it will appear rather a sal
travesty on popular institutions that so
great an event should assume the ap
pearance of a cut-and-drled transaction
in which the body of the people jf the
party concerned have had nothing what
ever to say. To others, howsver, the oc
casion will present itself to view as
n: rely demonstrating how effectively
business methods a;-e made to prevail in
every relation of life, and how- com
pletely and with what simplicity the sen
cril sentiment of the party, which is
favorable to the renomination of the
ient and the leadership of Senator
Hanna, Fnds expression. To the general
Ijub!i2 the occasion will presort itself as
in every sense an extraordinary one, the
true explanation of which may be ef
fectually sought in the old iraying about
the cohesive power of public plutiuer.
National politics is conducted pure and
simple on a commercial basis. None but
commercial considerations are now avail
able in determining the right or wisdom
of a given public policy; and it would be
really surprising it' the most approved
commercial methods were not found most
available in conducting large interests
such as are involved. The entire plan of
popular gatherings is growing antl
quatcd, and with the splendid progress
we have made, as represented by the
easy procedure of the Republican con
vention, it may reasonably be expected
that even the formality of elections may
not be found Indispensable, after we have
advanced some distance along these
linos.
Tuesday's convention will find little
embarrassment in the vice presidential
situation when the time comes for mak
ing the nomination. Few will have the
temerity to stand forward to advocate
any candidate after the administration
has decided in the person of Senator
Hanna en its candidate. Th • few jarring
Interests will be at once reconciled, and
the machine will move smoothly on to
the effective registration of its will.
_—,
THE STATE AND LABOR.
There is perhaps no feature of the pe
culiar social and political methods and
conditions prevalent in the Australasian
colonies of Great Britain which has at
tracted the same degree of attention as
that which relates to labor legislation.
For years past all the principles of the
law of contract applying to the relations
of master and servant have, especially
in New Zealand, been steadily undergo
ing complete annihilation. None of the
accepted doctrines of the books seem des
tined to survive. The New Zealand law
represents the highest development thus
far reached of the paternal idea. The
state acts as the champion and repre
sentative of one of the parties to the
contract of hiring, and places the other
more or less completely at the mercy of
its regulations.
Among the oth3r products of labor leg
islation which they possess in New Zea
land is a compulsory arbitration act.
This provides for the existence of a
board of arbitration which, in certain
contingencies, Is vested with power to
compel the parties to an industrial dis
pute to submit their difficulties to arbi
tration. In a recent case which that
body took under advisement an award
was given decreeing that unionist work
men were entitled to employment in
preferen&s to non-union workmen equally
capable and suffering under no disquali
fication in any direction.
From this decision an appeal was taken
to the highest court—the court of ap
peals of the colony—and it was affirmed.
The opinion was written by the chief Jus
tice, and embodies the following remark
able doctrine:
"It may be wronsr, that a statute should
exist which allow? unionists power to
claim privileges, when by the cons i v-
Uon of the act non-unionists have no sta-
THE ST. PAUL UlrOJß^, SUNDAY, J4JNK 17, 1900
tus before the court, and cannot appear
to show their side of the Question. How
ever, the whole intension of the arbitia
tlon act is to benefit industry by encour
aging associations or workers and em
ployers, who, being corporate bodies, w;th
property and responsibilities, can be
bound by awards and agreements which
individual workers might repudiate and
evade. Therefore, as In passing the act
it was evidently the intention of the legis
lature to prefer organized to unorganiz
ed labor, it is absurd to say that the pres
ident of the court has not power to show
similar discrimination or that it is not
Inferred in the act itself."
With us legislation of this character
would be so plainly class law-making
and, therefore, Illegal, as to be self-evi
dent. But there evidently Is no such lim
itation placed on legislative action In
New Zealand. The court indeed in this
case admits that the so-called compul
sory law is expressly intended to advance
the interests of one class over another.
There Is -but one principle involved in
which some adequate explanation of the
strange anomaly may be found. It is
that which, gives special recognition to
union labor as against non-union labor,
because the representatives of the for
mer may be held to their contract obliga
tions.
Whatever the force of such a consid
eration may be with reference to the pe
culiar conditions applying to New Z; a
land it Is worthy of note that the action
of American labor unions Is more dis
posed to run along that Une than ever
before. It i 3 this circumstance to which
we may trace the disappearance of the
sympathetic strike. Moat of the principal
trades unions are bound by express con
tracts to their employers. Their engage
ment in a strike with which their em
ployers would have no connection would
necessarily involve a violation of existing
contracts, and would constitute a seri
ous warning against any employer there
after binding himself to any conditions
whatever in his relations toward his em
ployes. Employer and employe now con
duct their transactions as to compensa
tion mostly through the means of time
contracts, which, being adhered to dur
ing their continuance, materially lessen
the possibility of trouble.
Whatever may be the exact terms of
the enforced arbitration law of New Zea
land, it is becoming quite plain each ad
ditional Jay tfiat some such principle
must be worked into our labor legisla
tion. There is perhaps one state in the
Union—and that one, if we are not mis
talv-n, is Kansas—in which the compul
sory principle.is recognized. In all other
states, no matter how close the existing
legislation aproaehes the compulsory
idea, it Is found that there Is no power
in existence to enforce its provisions, &o
far as making it imperative on the part
of parties to industrial disputes to sub
mit to public arbitration. Until some
such principle is recognized we are cer
tain to have prolonged outbreaks of sav
agery such as have just been witnessed
in St. I.ouis and other Western cities
during the existence of strife between
street car corporations and their em
ployes.

BOTTLIXi; THE FACTS.
The public has not yet received any in
formation as to how President McKin
ley came to appoint polygamists to fed
eral offices in Utah. It is not known
whether or not the president was in
duced to appoint Mormons as postmas
ters and to other positions by means of
false representations, or whether the
president knew the appointees were po
lygamists when he apointed them. It is
not known, If false representations were
made to the president, who made them,
nor is it known why it is deemed neces
sary to screen the person or persons re
sponsible for such appointments.
The special committee charged with the
investigation of these scandals has sup
pressed its report, and all the facts are
kept from the public. Perhaps it might
make trouble for the administration dur
ing the campaign if the truth was gener
ally known.
And it now seems highly probable that
the disclosure of the fraud and corrup
tion which have been rampant in Cuba,
not only in the postoffiee department, but
in other departments as well, is to be
withheld until after election for the rea
son that full publicity would be exceed
ingly injurious to McKlnley's interests
during the campaign. It would not ba
pleasant for the public to know all the
doings of the horde of thieving carpet
baggers who have been shipped to Cuba
by the McKinley administration. Many
of the Cuban officeholders appointed by
President McKinley appear to be under
the impression that Cuba Libre means
that in Cuba they are free to grab all
they are able and hang on to all they
can get.
At the Cuban table
The carpet-baggers sit,
Grabbing all they're able,
Keeping all they "git."
PRACTICAL, ZIONISM.
Judged by the latest expressions of Max
Nordau, Zionism is in fact an effort to in
duce the poor and oppressed Jews of
Eastern Europe and Northern Africa to
go upon the land instead of flocking to
the already overcrowded cities. The in
flux of large numbers of the lower class
of Jews, no doubt, imposes a great bur
den and responsibility upon the enlight
ened Jews of the United States. They
cani.ot ignore their presence or see them
starve, and to aid them effectually means
to impoverish themselves. If the stream
of Jewish immigration could be turned
Zionwarfis to the plains and hills of Pal
estine with any prospect that the immi
grants in large numbers might become
useful and self-supporting citizens, it
would be an Immense relief to the cul
tured and enlightened Jewish communi
ties throughout the world.
Heretofore, it must be admitted, the at
tempts to induce the Jew of Eastern
Europe to adopt agricultural or pastoral
pursuits have not been a great success.
The instincts acquired during hundreds
of years of oppression lead him into other
pursuits. The Russian Jewish colonies
established on the Western prairies at
different times have not been successful,
and the colonists in most cases have wan
dered to the cities, engaging in commerce
in a small way, or thronging the tene
ments with the poorest class of laborers.
It la not improbable that similar Ill
success will attend all attempts for many
years to come to establish the poorer
clas3 of Jews upon the soil of Palestine.
True, the climate may be more congenial
than that of Dafcota or Manitoba, but
there will be other objections. To make
of the Russian Jew a successful farmer
is not an impossibility, but the experU
ment must begin with the young people
and not with the old, who are, by reason
of their habits of life, unfitted for and
unaccustomed to agricultural pursuits.
Without venturing to suggest, it -would
seem that one of the first steps v.'hieh
the Zionists should take is the establish-
ment of an agricultural college similar to
the agricultural department of the Uni
versity of Minnesota, for the education of
Jewish boys and givls on the broadest
lines cf practical agricultural knowledge.
Then there might be some hope that a.
real, intelligent: Interest in agricultural
pursuits might be aroused, and the pupil
wouli flnd that farming is not a hopeless
undertaking, nor docs it mean exile, but
that it is a safe, profitable business.
The failures .ot Zionism in the matter
of establishing colonies are, to a large
extent, due to a lack of practical ex
perience on the part of the promoters and
a want of consideration and judgment in
the selection of the colonists. The poor
Jew of the cities with his puny physique,
low vitality and resulting predilection for
sedentary pursuits can never be convert
ed into a practical, successful farmer.
If tha Zionists will devote their rirst
attention to building up the physique of
the lower class Jew and to his manual
training they will have laid a secure
foundation for their plan. But to depend
upon enthusiasm and religious fervor
without a solid basis of educated mind
and rr.uscle is building a house upon the
sand.
PREVENTIVE PHILANTHROPY.
In tha goed work of the world w.man
is always felt, and larcly heard. For the
volumes of sound proceeding from the
men who devote any thought to social
problems there is not a single wjrd heard
from the women similarly engaged. It is
the woman's function to act; the man's,
too often, to talk, and do little but talk.
Hence woman on public undertakings of
any kind rarely has the power of making
herself understood through words alone.
An address was recently delivered by
a philanthropic woman of New York,
however,which does not sustain this view.
Ir.doed, it showed Its author to bs not only
a practical wofkpr in social undertakings,
but a deep thinker, thoroughly qualified to
give the most forcible expression to her
views. The lady is Mrs. Frederick Na
than, and the subject of her address was
"Preventive Philanthropy Rather Than
Ameliorative C'r.arity."
All who have ever been in touch with
the existing charity movement in the cit
ies understand how readily the whole
movement takes on the purely statistical
and formal character. Even the best of
those who administer our public charities
f'nd themselves engaged in a continual
round of investigation and examination,
with the necessity imposed on them of
compiling figures relating to their work,
which rarely, if ever, possess any signifi
cance whatever. The distress is present.
The purpose—the immediate and pressing
purpose—is to remedy it. Few men ever
are in position to follow out both phases
oi" the philanthropic movement, the one
which relieves and the one which pre
vents.
Mrs. Nathan sets infinitely more store
on the preventive side of philanthropic
effort than she does on the preventive.
Indeed, in her address she .seems to have
been of the settled conviction that organ
ized charity has a decided tendency to
breed poverty and mendicancy. The fol
lowing passage from the address referred
to will illustrate her drift of thought:
"It is far nob'.er to study the best
methods to prevent vice, crime, distress,
disease and poverty than to loster or per
mit conditions which lead to these evils
ftnd then squander a fortune to he p
straighten out just a little of th- crooked
ness. Such charity reminds one < f the j-o
--called 'chaiitable' manufactu.er who re
duced the wages of his employes because
he needed the money to make his annual
Rifts for hpn Ti.ont pu. poses. S >rre irrn a
I think that instead of being so proud of
our charitable institutions we ought to
hang our heads in shame of the need of
them."
The conditions which render th~ exist
ence of great organizations of charity
necessary are increasing rather than di
minishing. Social life in the big cities
tends to offer opportunities to tho improv
ident, the lazy and the dishonest to se
cure their livings without work. Thou
sands of such parasites prey on organized
charity. It has always been so, and it al
ways will be so. The best work being
done for humanity today is being done by
those who are trying to bring into exist
ence better sanitary and social surround
ings for the poor. To wipe out a single
disease-producing condition is worth more
in the domain of charity than the expendi
ture of thousands of dollars in relieving
Individual want. The work of relief is
never-ending. It goes on and will go on
as long as men and women are weak and
foolish, and are brought into the world
and maintained in it by those responsible
for their existence without any. ssrious
thought of providing them with an ade
quate mean 3 of securing a self-respect
ing livelihood.
The women who are going into the ten
ements of the cities, hunting out the
sweat shop, destroying the unsanitary
conditions which have been attendant on
the old residence buildings; who are train
ing the young girls, the children of the
poor, in the household arts, and enabling
them to make a better living than they
would did they not have a little prelim
inary training, are those who are doing
the great charitable work of the world.
Mrs. Nathan is riprht. We ought to be
ashamed of our charity bodies, of our
jails, our police, our entire disciplinary
and relief machinery. In fact, until we
do get a good, healthful dislike and con
tempt for all these things running through
our veins we *an never b? said to be en
gaged in effective charitable undertak
ings.
America's nosl'tlon, in the China "trouble
is much like that of the new pupil who
is initiated into the mysteries of the
game of sh«ema.ker— he impersonating
the leather for the shoe. At the signal
of "pound leather" the victim discovers
what there is in the game. Now the
powers want America to open the gates
of Pekin and let them peep in and see
what is inside. If Uncle Sam escapes
alive, the others will enter the sacred
city.
If the Chinese fanatics have burned the
legations in I*ekin, th: y will find them
sciVtt like the good Indians physically
Incapacitated for burning the new lega
tions that will be erected after they have
crossed the River Styx.
After making a great hullabaloo about
the pernicious activity of Republican of
ficeholders, the Republican national com
mittee refused to adopt a resolution that
they be investigated.
West Virginia is nurturing a boom for
Senator Elkins as Republican vice presi
dential candidate. Pennsylvania shouldn't
forget her favorite son, Senator Quay.
Hon. Fred C. Schiffmann will wear two
Minnesota badges in Philadelphia to pre
vent any one from mistaking him for
the Hon. Timothy Woodruff.
Senator Hanna is having a hard time of
It. Even his own party denies him
Bliss.
That open door to China seems to be
closed for repairs.
SMART SHORT STORIES.
If history be true, Gov. Taylor of Ten
nessee is not the only man who nd'Jlocl
himself into office, says the Washington
Star. Lossing relates that in IS4S he met,
at Oswogo, N. V., Moj. Cochim, then
nearly eighty years old, a son-in-law of
Gen. Philip Bchuyler, who told the story
of his election to congress during the ad
ministration of the elder Adams. A ves
sel was to be launched on uiio of tho
lakes In interior New York, and people
came from afar to see it. The young
folks- gathered there, determined to hav.j
a oar.cc .-it night There was a fiddle, but
no fiddler. Young Cochran was an ama
teur performer and hio services wero de
maaded. He gratified the joyous com
pany, and at the supper table one of the
gentlemen remarked, in commendation of
his talents, that he was "fit for con
g-tvss." The mailer was talked up, and
lie was nominated and elected a repre
sentative in corfgress for the district then
comprising the whole of New York west
of Schenectady. lie always claimed lo
have "fiddled himself into congress.' 1 It
seems that history repeats itself, accord
ing to the proverb.

on your own heads be it," cried O'Con
nell, good humoredly, and throwing off
his coat he set to with pugilistic intent
boxing them right and left until he got
them to desist. Their amusement and
delight knew no bound.-, and when on re
gaining the carriage he doubled up his
hand and shook It at them, with a beam
ing smile and a twinkling eye, the air
was rent with enthusiastic shouting, and
he drove off even a greater hero than
when he had come.
To understand the above scene and to
thoroughly appreciate it one must have
Irish blood in one's veins. It was not so
much the daring of the act that stirred
the people up, for, of course, he knew
they would not lay a hand upon him, but
it was the originality of it. the fun of it,
in point of fact what they would them
selves have called the "divilment" of it,
that won their hearts and made him more
popular than ever before.

(Written for the Globe.)
England's sun was slowly setting, o'er
the hilltops, far awiy.
Lighting up ths war headquarters,
■where, for many ,i weary d;iy,
Anxious thousands had 1> pn waiting, for
fresh tidings from the from.
Praying for their sons and brothers, who
had b.une the battle's brunt.
All the watchers were impatient, for a
week or m;re had passed 1
Since Lord Roberts had reported to the
War Headquarters !a-t
Each man asked his anxious neighbor for
the cause of this delay
But no answer was forthcoming— why it
was, no man could say.
Suddenly a mighty cheering rose above
the city's roir.
And the audience assembled knew the
dread susrerss-e was o'er;
Word had comn from Gen. Buller, and
his gory, on the wane,
Was revived by those erlad tidngs: "I
am on 'he move again!"
To each home throughout all London
quickly pped tre joyful news.
Making glad the hearts of thousands, for
they knew they cou'd not lose
When this leader of all leaders, in hi 3
oprimisfc vein.
Had composed this thrilling rre^sagi?, "I
Am on the Move Again!"
Many terse and brilliant Faying have
been voiced in a^es p^ist;
Caesar, when he cr^ss?d the R"b"con ex
claimed "The Die Is Oa=t!"
And Hannibal braced up his troop? when
far from friends and home
With the cheering information 'hat "Be
yond the Alns L;es Rome!"
But these and other phrases which were
sprung in bygone years
Are a* nothing to the noble words that
quieted England's fears:
Even Dewey's welcome t'd'ns:?. when he
smashed the power of Sna'n
Tjook 'ike thirty cents, compared with "I
Am on the Move Again!"
What though «neerins r critics.r'dirule the
path he has marke-1 out
And declare if Buller fisrhts he will be
whipped without a doub':
Even though his Christmas dinner may be
in Pretoria still
Even though each tiny kopje proved a red
hot Bunker Hill
Ho has made a name in history which
will never be erased,
Not because of his n»w treats. "What
It Feels TJke to Be Chafed."
But because he Font a nr^ssage flying 1 over
sea and p!a!n
That will live rbrcughout the ages, "I
Am on the Move Again!"

Medical Notes.
The actual amount of food necessary
varies with the person. Some people,
finding that two meals a day are suffi
cient, are ardent advocates of that plan,
and some find only one sufficient, this
limited diet apparently sustaining their
strength and maintaining their health".
On the other hand there is no doubt
that many people eat too much, if not
too often. The brain worker who dines
generously, and not always wisely, In
the evening, sleeps late and gets up with
no appetite may well breakfast on a
cool glass of water and an orange, post
poning his first real meal till lunch time,
but tho man who rises at 4 or 3 In the
morning and has completed half a days
work by breakfast time may make that
meal a hearty one. Food should never
be eaten directly after severe exercise,
nor should severe exercise follow a
hearty meal. Too much food at any
time taxes the digestive powers and in
jures the nervous system. The stomach
should be allowed to rest periodically,
and not be constantly kept at work by
little snacks between meals. Under n>
circumstances should a person under
take severe work or violent exercise be
fore he has taken food in the murning.
Experiments show that a man is at his
weakest when he ariaes in the morning,
and for this reason some slight lood
should be taken, even though it be but a
cup of coffee and a roll. Next to over
work and, on the other hand, idleness as
causes of debility may be placed too
little food, the case being similar to that
of trying to run a steam engine with but
little fuel under the boiler.

Long-distance bicycle records are usu
ally undertaken for sell-glory, but Will
iam H. Brown undertook his recent task
to demonstrate the value of long-dis
tance cycling as a cure for consump
tion. While his ride of 1,400 miles in
about 1-18 hours, under the most trying
conditions, may not have demonstrated
any medical fact, it is curious to note
that he actually gained in weight di
his ordeal. When he commenced his
he weighed 152 pounds; after riding L.COO
miles, his weight was 145 p tunds, and
at the end of the 1,400 miles his weight
was USV2 pounds. Several physi
who examined him found his temperature
normal, his pulse GO, firm and regul ir,
and his respiration tl per
ly over the normal number, lie si,
no more signs of fatigue than many rid
ers do after wheeling a single century.
His diet was noticeable, because It con
sisted chiefly of raw ■ and
ils, a diet, by the way, indorsed Dy
«'liar lie Miller and Frank Waller, who
recommend raw oatmeal, wheat and
bailey at: the proper fojd for such v lin
ing.

Dr. Haney, who has been giving a series
of medical lectures to an organization of
public school teachers, points out that the
average girl is at least two years In ad
vance of the average boy in mental as
well as physical development, alth
owing to his greater physical strength,
the boy works harder, and thus :
abreast of the g*rl. In spite of her gr<
intellectual maturity. He especially em
phasizes the need of discouraging precoc
ity by the aid of physical culture. He
caution.-, teachers against attempting a
judgment of the character or condition of
the child from the formation and config
uration of the face and skull. Speaking
of fatigue, he calls attention to the Im
portance of plenty of sleep and recreation
pointing out that the child's best hours
for work are from « to 11 o'clock In the
morning, and the worst between 1 and S
!: in the afternoon. As a test of fa
tigue the teacher should call upon the
pupils to hold out their Inn.is. and if this
Is done listlessly it is an absolute sign
that they are unduly fatigued.

There is a popular opinion, and one thai
has even prevailed among physician! .
typhoid fever is not and cannoi
mnnicated to the healthy from the sick
except by eating food, or, mon especially,
drinking fluids which have been contam
inated by discharges from a typhoid pa
Went. Dr. Goodall believes thai typhoid
fever is directly communicated from the
sick to the healthy more commonly than
has been supposed, find proves thia by
many .striking instances in which nurses,
domestic servants and ward maids In hos
pitals have contracted the disci--,, while
caring for typhoid fever patients. There
has been a reaction In medical op
which will no doubt lead to the same pre
cautionary sanitary measures as In
known contagious or infections dig
in which disease-bearing material passes
from the sick to thp healthy.

Dr. Hudson, In a recent paper before th.>
Medico Legal society, referred to ti.e psy
chologic phase of police confession. M
believes n■•>• rhpre is danger that Innocent
persons may be made to confess d la
which they have never committed -i ly
through the psychologic process of sug

torn of allowing confessions of g'lilt by

As a result of Investigation of thi
suits of using coloring matlei and pre
servatives in food. Dr. Starling, of Eng
land, concludes that formalin should be
absolutely prohibited as .1 food
tive, but he considers salicyMc add le3a
harmful, although In acid fluid it a.
an antiseptic and prevents Ihe action of
the gastric juice, being in addition a po
tent drug of variable action which should
be only given under medical advice and
control. The most nearly harmless of
preservatives is br;ric acid, but he be
lieves that the milk supply can be
ried on without the use of this, and
would prohibit the use of boric acid in
milk.

Many people who call themselves vege
tarians are not such, for the term vege
table diet, if accurately used, exclude-;
butter, lard, eggs arid milk and every
animal product, even in the process of
cooking. If this Is done it is almost im
possible to construct an exclusive vege
table diet in wh!ch tho necessary ele
ments are properly proportioned.
if it were possible, such an amount of
waste and irritating material would be
necessary that It would seriously a
the health. The excessive use of vege
table compounds and fruits sooner or
later excites intestinal disorders

The question of food in relation to
strength and power of endurance has
always been a vexed one and trainers
have differed widely. Dr. "Haig, in his
recent work entitled. "Diet and Food,"
recommends a diet free from mfat and
eggs, as well as tea, coffee and alcohol
He recommends milk and milk products;
breadstuffs, cereals and gluten; nuts and
nut foods; garden vegetables, as pota
toes; garden fruits, as apples, and dried
fruits. In this, however, as in all
schemes of dieting, it is well to remem
ber that there are marked individual
idinsyncracies. and no hard and fast
rules can be laid down which shall cover
all cases.
Dr. Chmelicek-Luhan. who has had
much experience in observing the early
stages of consumption, calls attention to
a new symptom. Long before the tu
bercle bacilli could be found in tho spu
tum he has noticed a dilation of both
pupils Invariably associated with a pe
culiarly bright and glistening eye, with
great susceptibility to light. Another
early symptom Is an irregular and ca
pricious appetite, which is in direct pro
portion with the eye phenomena. H e
believes that treatment should be direct
ed to improving digestion and assimila
tion of food, proper car* being given to
hygienic surroundings.
• • •
In the treatment of rickets Dr. Morse
recommend* that the food should be
especially fat, milk containing the best
form of fat to be found. If the digestion
will 3tand it cod-liver oil should be giv
en, but no more than can be assimilated.
The greatest possible amount of fresh
air and sunshine Is essential, and if a
change of climate is possible the sea
shore should be selected in preference
to the country. The best treatment of
deformities Is to prevent them from de
veloping. Mechanical treatment Is of
little use after the child Is two and a
half years old, but many slight deformi
ties may disappear with growth In tha
course of years.
