Valentine, Atty. OVER A THOUSAND PERSONS DROWNED IN CHICAGO RIVER Chicago, July 24. More than 1,000 persons, possibly 1,300, most of thera women and children, were drowned to day within a few feet of land by the capsizing of the -steel steamer East land, as it was about to leave its wharf in the Chicago river with 2,500 relatives and friends of employee of the Western Electric Company, for an excursion across Lake Michigan. The ship rolled over on its side in 25 feet of water within five minutes after it began to list. Coroner's physician Springer to night declared that thirteen hundred persons were killed, while other esti mates ran as high as 2,000, but these did not agree with the statement that not more than 2,500 passengers were on board the vessel. During the day more than 700 bodies were taken from the river and from the hull of the overturned steamer whose sides were cut open with gas fiames to admit divers. " . Several persons were taken alive from the cabins of the ship after it had lain on its side in the- river for four hours, but the 300 others said tt be in the bulk are all dead. - 7 Under the glare of searchlights to night, scores of men worked in the hull of the vessel to remove the bodies. The cause of the capsizing had not teen determined tonight. Chicago, July 25. The death ship Easland tonight had . given up 820 teddies. The estimated total of those vho went down to. death in the. Chica go river yesterday morning when th3 steel steamer, bearing 2,-tSO excur sionists, rolled over at her dock, re mained at approximately . 1,000. . Of those on -board at the time of the ca tastrophe 1,072 have reported them selves as safe. Of the 588 remaining unaccounted for it sis believed four hundred are alive and that 188 bodies still are in the river. Chicago, July 25. "A considerable portion of the blame for the Eastlan disaster rests upon the United States Inspection Bureau," said . Maclay Hoyne, state's attorney, in a state ment tonight regarding his investiga tion of the wreck. ' "If the inspectors had done their duty, the accident could not nave oc curred. We know the ship was' de clared unsafe-by them, because I have copies of letters sent to Washington which predicted yesterday's occur rence. I may introduce these letter at the inquest." F. M. Jordan Tells What he Thinks pf , " it in' VeryStrong Terms. -rr2,' - (Brevard News.) t .V. - . ' .1 see' In your issue of ''Sst -week a report of a big dance at the! Franklin last week," ' which is to be kept up every night through the summer. '-1 am truly sorry that Brevard - and vi cinity is cursed with one of the most corrupting amusements ever invented bv the devil to lead men and women into the j vortex of lust, fornicaUoa r.nd adultery. You sow the dance and the ball room and reap a crop pf brothels, You can't sow sin and reap vJrtue. . , . . " : The- dance is the moral graveyard of more girls than anything else in the world, v The dance is the dry rot cf society. I say it is immoral ; I defy anybody to. contradict what I have to say. about the matter. A so ciety woman said that in the ball roora men take liberties with her that the would not. dare to take any place" else. m under', any other - circumstances! Certainly. . Perhaps the parties , you have attended have been free from the immoral .tendencies which have char acterized others. , Do you know that three-fourths of all the girls' who are ruined owe their downfall to the dance? The dance is the hot-bed of imorality, and I un flinchingly denounce it as one of the greatest evils of the world Seven million girls go wrong in a century and three-fourths of them arc ruined bv the dance. The chief of police of New York city says three f curths of ' the abandoned creatures fell through the dance. We have "charity ball3," ane I think they are the biggest insulted God and decency that He ever looked upon. Are you so low down that you would not give a dollar to charity unless they got up a dance? ' The dance leads to immorality. Drinking, card playing and dancing are stepping stones into hell.

COMMENTS OX THE FLY-PROOF LAWS OF HENDERSONVILLE Commenting on the ordinances of Hendersonville with reference to health, flies and sanitation, a copyof wheh was recently carried in the Democrat, the Concord Times says in the following words that they should be adopted and enforced by other towns: "The town commissioners of Hen dersonville have passed ordinance which, if properly enforced, will safe guard the health of the citizens of that beautiful mountain town. For in stance, an ordiance was passed re cently making it unlawful, wth a pen alty of fifty dollars for each day of the violation, for any person to main tain either a privy or, a water closet that is not absolutely fly-proof . All privies accessible to sewers are to be abolished and sewer connections inade. Another . ordinance requires that all stables have dry fly-proof bins and proof bottoms for the daily storage of all manure and that once a week all manure shall be removed from the city; A further important require ment was that all market places.be kept clean, sanitary, screened from flies and open to the inspection of the city health omcer at any time, ana tnat all meats be kept covered and fly-proof while m transportation. The com missioners went a step ' further ant made it unlawful for any person or firm to enga ge in washing and ironing without first having procured a certi ficate of good health . from the city health officer, steam laundries excepted. Good. Now let these lawr. be enforced. And may they be adopt ed and enforced in every other town as. well." - DISPOSAL OF WASTE IN. RURAL DISTRICTS; BIG PROBLEM. The sanitary disposal . of human: waste is recognized as one of the most important problems confronting, the modern municipality, the successful solution of which- has required the ex ercise of much engineering skfTT and ingenuity. But for the rural commun itv. the isolated farmhouse, the smalt settlement, where sewers and unlimit ed water are as yet unattainable, what device is there that ts practicable tbat is at the same time chearpv simple, and easily constructed and operated; that is fly and germ proof, that is adapted! to the conditions of rural life, and t farmers and dwellers in small towns can be urged to provide with some chance of success? These condition? are all essential, but they, are by no means easily complied with. That existing- methods or lack of methods of vaste disposal In rural districts con stitute a real and serious danger bas been demonstrated beybnd - guestior Hookworm, typhoid, dysentery, tuber culosis, as well as many forms of in testinal parasites are all spread largt ly through defective methods of dis posing of human waste. Any real or lasting improvement In rural sanitary conditions must be preceded by a rad ical and permanent reform 'on this subject. This problem, always urgent, is becoming and will continue to be come more important as our rural dis tricts become more densely populated. Bearing on the problem is the United States Public Health Service bulletin, recently, issued, on "Safe Disposal of Human Excreta" by Lumsden, Stiles and Freeman. After a general dis cussion of the problem and its Import ance. , the various types of sanitary privies so far devised are discussed, the manner of construction, advant ages and disadvantages, cost, etc., be ing considered in each case, with illus trations 'and working plans for the h construction. Directions are also giv en for converting an ordinary insani tary privy into a safe one, as well as directions for cleaning and for final disposition- of v the contents. This pamphlet, says The Journal of. the American , Medical Association, should be widely circulated ' among rural .homes.

Her is part of his story: . "We farmers need awakening to the fact that we have unmistakably reach ed the period where we must think and plan. I am one of the slow German farmers that had to be shown, and I am now giving my experience that ethers may profit, for knowledge is-J more expensive now than ten years ago. "Twenty-nine years ago I began my farm career. I had an. old team and $50. . Our furniture was mostly home made chains, cupboard and lounge made from dry goods boxes, neatly covered with ten-cent cretonne by my girl wife. We rented eighty acres. 'Being a boy of good habits I got all needed machinery and groceries of our home merchants on credit, until fall crops were sold. The first year was a wet season and L did. not make enough to pay creditors.. I went to each on date of promise and explained condi tions, paying as much as possible, and they all carried the balance another year. They continued to accomodate me until I was- able to bay a forty acre peice of my own. "As soon as I owned these - few acres the. mail order houses began sending me catalogues, and. gradually I began sending, my loose change to them, letting my accounts, stand in my home town where I had. gotten my ac commodation when I needed, it. "We then had. one of the thrifiest ; little villages in the state good line of business in all the branches, mer ; chants who were willing to help an ! honest fellow esver a bad. year, and a town full of people 'who came twice a week to trade and visit. . Our little cduntry town supported a library, high cchool. ball team, and we had big celei brations every year. "A farm near a live town soon, doubles in value, I sold my forty acres, at a big advance and bought an eighty;, gradually adding to it until I had 200. acres of the best land in Iowa. I then felt no need of asking favors, and! found it easy to patronize the mail qj der agents that came almost, weekly to our door. I regret to say that Lwras the first in the county to make up a neighborhood bill and send it to a. mail order house. Though we got bit every once in a while, we got in the haliitof sending away for stuff. "Gradually our merchants lessened their stock of goods for lack of pa tronage. Finally we began to realize that when we ' needed a belt v-;::icU"y for machinery, or clothing fojr sickness or death, we had to wait and send away for it, which wasn't so pleasant. One by one our merchants moved to places where they were appreciated, and men of less energy movpd in. Gradually our town has gone down; ou business houses are 'tacky' in ap pearance, a number are empty; our schools, churches and walks.are gains 'down, we have no band, no library nor ball team.' There is no business done in the town, and therefore no taxes to keep thing up. Hotel is closed for lack of travel. Go down to. the depot .when the freight pulls in and you will see the sequel in mail order packages. "Nine years ago my farm was worth $195 an acre;, today I'd have a hard matter to sell it at $165 an acre. It is too far from a live to wn--so every f2rmer has said that wants to buy. He wants a place near : schools and churches where his children can have advantages. ) I have awakened ; to the fact that in helping to pull the town down it- has cost me $5.1500 In nino FRESH AIR BAKING MEANS BETTER COOKING "X'ES !
