killed In action and 7,000 from pre
ventable disease.
If war is inevitable, and a thing
to be reckoned with, it does seem that
men should be killed legitimately,
on the field, fighting for a cause, and
not destroyed by diseases that go of
ten find birth in the Uf-K1'Kp'nc of
mankind.
And the little Japs have tAught
this lesson to the nations.
ABSURD ABUSE
Of POWER.
The small calibre physician who
constitutes the majority influence on
state; health boards, and to whom is
(riven autocratic power in quaran
tine mutters, may not be an abomi
nation to the lord but he comes
mighty near such to the Krfcat body
of people so unfortunate as to enter
the circle of his jurisdiction.
The prevalence of yellow fever in
New Orleans and Pensacola lias fur
nished many instances of the fool
use of this power, probably the most
conspicuous example of which is the
forcible subject inn of all who desire,
or are entitled to pass quarantine
stations, to a modified application of
the iiertillion system of measure
ments for identifying criminals. -
The practice is both grotesque and
utterly senseless.
Here is an example.
A Palatka gentleman with his
family had been spending several
weeks in North Carolina. When
about to return they procured certi
ficates from the health officer in the
town where they were stopping,
They then went to Atlanta, where
they spent several days. When
about to purchase tickets for home
the railway agent asked to see their
health certificates. After an exaini
natioti of these papers they were
pronounced worthless. He then in
formed the holders that they would
be obliged to see the I'nited States
Marine Hospital Surgeon stationed
in thatv ity.
This the Palatka travelers did,
flndin;' in that oflicial a most grac
cious a'!l obliging gentleman. But
lie explained that in order to enter
Florida thev would be obliged to
have identification cards which he
was there to furnish. These cards
contain the name of the traveler, his
ae, weight, height, color of eyes and
hair and an IMPRESSION OK HIS
THl'MB, which latter was secured
by the applicant's placing his thumb
in a small pool of ink and then ptess
ing on a blank space reserved for
t huinhs on the card. This done the
Palatka travelers were equipped for
the ride home.
Of course the quarantine officer
at the Florida line did not examine
these thumb marks with a micro
scope nor compare them with the
original dies in order to see if they
were genuine. He simply glanced
at the cards and let the travelers
Atlanta threw open its doors to all
yellow fever refugees and hence the
necessity for adoption of more strin
gent quarantine regulations against
that city. But if the Florida health
office is responsible for the thumb
iu-the-iiik mark it contains fakirs
for which the present administration
of Florida can scarce afford to be responsible.
The remedy is to place control of
the health department in the hands
of broad-minded physicians who can
rise above the "Simon says thumbs
tin" idea. And we have plenty
such.
THE REAL
STUFF.
the editor
A friend recently told
this story:
"A brother of mine died a few
years ago, leaving a young son. My
brother was a good fellow, but was
never able to accumulate any estate.
He frequently borrowed money jf
me. which I was glad to lend him.
He paid Has he could, but always
was in debt to me. When he died
he owed me between $;JU and
Of course, I never expected to get
back my money. But I reckoned
without the boy, my nephew. He
has grown to be a young man. The
other day Iliad a letter from him
asking me to name the precise
amount his father owed me at the
time of the latter's death. He said
he intended to pay every cent of It.
His salary was but $45 per month,
but he would be able to save enough
to pay me in the oourse of a few
years."
Said this friend: "The letter
brought tears to my eyes. I did not
care for the money. It was the
boy's high sense of honor and duty
that touched ine. I wish I could
make the sum less than be owed me,
but the boy knows approximately
the amount, and I dare not rob him
of the satisfaction of paying the
whole debt."
That boy is made of the real stuff.
He is of the stuff of which heroes
and martyrs nay, of which men are
made.
No law forces the brave young
fellow to pay the obligations of the
dead save the law of moral duty.
He is not impelled by any hope of
gain save that oi conscience ana ny
no fear of loss (save the loss of honor.
But he is a man every inch of him,
every pound of him.
One would rather be the father of
such a youth than to be the father to
a common millionaire. Because the
hoy has got soul fiber.
WONDERS DEVELOPED
BY WAR.
At the convention of army surgeons
held in iJetroit, Mich., two weeks
ago a Japanese surgeon told of ac
complishments in his department of
the service which shows that the
most wonderful part of Japan's won
derful military development is not a
story of battles won. It is of a fight
on disease such as the world has
never before witnessed, and experts
at, the convention declare that an ex
ample has been set that the I'nited
States will do well to follow.
Long before the opening of hostili
ties the Japs were ready.
They had discovered that in war
disease kills five where bullets kill
one, and they were certain that the
proportion was extravigant. Tney
established the most wonderful Ked
Cross system in the world and that
body soon had more than 1,200,1X10
members. They had trained nurses
in hundreds, modern supplies for use
in care of the sick and wounded in
unlimited quaiitit ies.
They studied the germ theory and
inndi! war on bacteria the first of all,
and Ho y studied serums until her
students expected to control dygeli
tery, typhoid, erysipelas and eventu
ally 'tuberculosis. They wiped out
that dread oriental disease, beri-be
ri, by scientific feeding of men. At
the same time Japan discarded the
fuss and pomp of war, and brass but
tons and gold lace and other tomfool
ery became almost unknown.
What, did it ail amount tu? At the
reserve hospital at Hiroshima, up to
the close of August iu the first year
of he war, wounded had been
received. And at that time but
thirty-four had died. In seven trips
made by the hospital ship Hakuai
Maru 2,4i wounded men were trans
ported and not a case was lost in
transit. It is asserted that in the
first, six months of the war the loss
from preventable diseases bad been
reduced to a fraction of 1 per cent. -In
our own Spanish war, in six
weeks, bullets killed 2f8 and disease

HOW TO TREAT GOSSIP,
State Superintendent of Insurance
W. D. Vandiver of Missouri lias sent
a communication to John A. McCall
of the New York Life Insurance
Company demanding that theHtf.-
7o.j campaign fund contribution be
replaced in the treasury of the com
pany, under penalty of revocation of
the company's license to transact
business in Missouri for failure to
comply with the demand. The com
munication also informs President
McCall that the Missouri depart
ment of insurance will insist on a
new president, vice president and
financial committee for the New
York Life Insurance Company, just
as soon as the directors can possibly
affect the reorganization. If all the
states would take similar action it is
more than likely we would have in-
urance reform with a vengeance and
have it quick.

Some Suggestion from Old
John Graham of the Stock
Yards.
There are two ways of treating
gossip about other people, and
they're both good ways. One is not
to listen to it, and the other is not to
repeat it. Then there' young buck
Pudden's wife's way, and that's let
ter than either when you're dealing
with some of these old heifers who
browse over the range nil day, stuf
fing themselves with gossip about
your friends, and then 'round up at
your house to chew the cud and slob
ber fake sympathy over you.
Buck wasn't a bad fellow at heart,
for he had the virtue of trying to be
goof, but occasionally he would
walk in slippery places. Wasn't
very sure-footed, so he fell down
pretty often, and when he fell from
grace it usually cracked the ice.
Still, as he used to say when he snot
at the bar mirrors during one of his
periods of temporary elevation, he
paid for what he broke cash for the
mirrors and sweat and blood for his
cussedness. ,
Then one day Buck met the only
woman in the world a mighty nice
girl from St- Jo and she was hesita
ting over falling in love with him,
till the gossips called to tell her that
be was a dear, lovely fellow, and
wasn't it too bad that he had such
horrid habits. That settled it, of
course, and she married him inside
of thirty days, so that she could g t
right down to the business of reform
ing him.
I don't as a usual thing, take much
stock in this marrying men to reform
them, because a man's always sure
of a woman when he's married to
her, while a woman's never really
afraid of losing a man till she's got
him. When you want to teach a dog
new tricks it's all right to show him
the biscuit first, but you'll usually
get better results by giving it to him
after the performance. But Buck's
wife fooled the whole town and al
most put the gossips out of business
by keeping Buck straight for a year.
She allowed that what he'd been
craving all the time was a home and
family and that his rare-ups came
from not having 'em. Then, like
most reformers, she overdid it: went
and had twins. Buck thought he
owned the town, of course, and that
would have been all right if he
hadn't included the saloons among
his real estate Had to take his
drinks in pairs, too, and naturally
when he went home that night and
had another look at the new arrivals
he thought, they were quadruplets
Buck straightened right out the
next dav, went to his wife and told
her all about it, and that was the
last time he ever had to hang his
head when he talked to her, for he
never took another drink. You see.
she didn't reproach him, or nag him
simply said stie was mighty proud
of the way he'd held ou for a year,
and that she knew she could trust
him now for another ten. Man was
made a little lower than the angels
the Good Book says, and I reckon
that's right, but he was made a good
while ago, and he hasn't kept very
well ; but there are a heap of wometi
iu this world who are still right in
the seraphim class
.Naturally, tbe story of Buck s tinal
celebration came to the gossips like
a thousand-barrel gusher to a drill
ing outfit that s been finding dusters,
and they went one at a time to see
Mrs. Buck and to tell her all the
dreadful details and how sorry they
were for her. Mrs. Buck would just
sit arid listen till they d runoff the
story, and hemstitched it. and em
broidered it, and stuck fancy rosettes
all over it. Then she'd smile one of
those sweet baby smiles that women
give just before the hair-pulling be
gins, and say:
i,aw, Mrs. bhackleloru trie
deacon's wife was the one who was
condoling with her at the moment
"people will talk about the best of
us. Seems as if no one was safe
nowadays. Why, they lie about the
deacon even. I know it ain't true
and you know it aiu'ttrue, but only
yesterday soirrehody was trying to
tell me that it was right strange how
a professor and a deacon got that
color in his beak, and while it might
be inflamatory veins or whatever he
claimed it was, she reckoned that, if
he'd let some one else tend the alco
hol barrel he wouldn't have to charge
up so much of his stock to leakage
and evaporation."
Of course, Mrs. Buck had made up
the story about the deacon, because
every one knew that he was too mean
to drink anything that he could sell,
hut by the time Buck's wife had fin
ished Mrs. Shackleford was so busy
explaining and defending him that
she hadn't any further interest in
Buck's case. And each one that
called was sent away with a special
piece of home scandal which Mrs.
Buck had invented to keep her mind
from dwelling on her neighbor's
troubles.
She followed up her system, too
and in the end it? got so that women
would waste good gossip before
they'd go to her with it. For if the
pastor's wife would tell her "as a
true friend that the report that she
had gone to the theatre in St. Louis
was causing a scandal she'd thank
her for being so sweetly thoughtful,
and ask if nothing was sacred enough
to be spared by the tongue of slan
der, though she, for one, didn't be
lieve that there was anything in the
malicious talk that the Doc. was
cribbing those powerful Sunday eve
ning discourses from a volume of
Beecher's sermons. And when
they'd press her for the name of her
informant she a say: ".No, it was a
lie;. siie Knew It was a lie; ana no
one who sat under the dear pastor
would believe It; and they mustn't
dignify it by noticing it." As a mat
ter of fact, no one who sat under
Doc. Pottle would have believed it,
for his sermons weren't good enough
to have been cribbed; and if Beccher
could have heard one of them he
would bave excommunicated him.
. Buck's wife knew how to
show goods. When Buck himself
had used up all the cuss words In
Missouri on his conduct she had
sense enough to know that his stock
of trouble was full, and that if she
wanted to get a hold on him she
mustn't show him stripes, but some
thing in cheerful checks, Yet when
the trouble-hunters looked her up
she had a full line of samples of their
favorite commodity to show them.
I simply mention these things in a
general way. Seeing would natural
ly be believing If cross-eyed people
were the only ones who saw crooked ;
and hearing will be believing when
deaf people are the only ones who
don't hear straight. It's a pretty
safe rule., when you hear a heavy
yarn about any one, to allow a fair
amount for tare, and then to verify
your weights.
