RIO A MODEL TOWN
Sanitation Has Changed Plague
Center to Health Resort
Is Called Paris of Western World
Cost of Living Is High, but Busi
ness and Wages In All Indus
tries Are Good.
Rio Janeiro. Rio Is the Paris of the
Americas In all that the name Implies
and Is one of the loveliest, most mod
ern and progressive cities In the
world. The fire and police depart
ments are perfectly equipped and
maintain a remarkably high standard
The people of Rio, by the expendi
ture of a vast amount of determina
tion, courage, energy and money, lit
erally have accomplished marvels.
Fifteen years ago the city was a mud
hole and a cesspool of filth and dis
ease, Bcourged by yellow fever and
many forms of pestilence. An Italian
warship visited the city at that time
and every officer and every man of
the crew died of the fever. A foreign
crew had to be hired to take the ship
back to Itnly. Today Rio compares
favorably with the healthiest cities in
the world. Sixty million dollars has
been spent In the last ten years for
sewerage, water, streets, etc. No bet
ter water supply exists. It is brought
clear and cold from the mountains to
the city In covered aqueducts of
stone. There are no flies, mosquitoes
or rats In Rio. For two years the city
maintained a force of 4,000 men en
gaged in their extermination, and with
entire success. Her public markets
are gems of beauty and cleanliness;
screens are unnecessary; Indeed, they
are unknown In Rio, and the meats
and fish can be exposed with perfect
safety, because there are no files and
no dust, whether on the Avenida Cen
tral, the Champs Elysee of Rio, along
the dock g or in the back alleys. They
are all as clean as the constant use of
soap and water can keep them.. A
100-mile ride through the streets of
Rio does not discover a scrap of pa
per. The public buildings are magnifi
cent, the parks, boulevards and ave
nues unique in their beauty. The de
partment of commerce and labor of
the United States, in an official re
port, states that the beauty of Rio
Janeiro cannot be exaggerated; to
quote: "It is very much like Switzer
landfor one cannot exaggerate Its
beauty. All is here the beautiful
location, the well-planned city, the
well-paved streets, the lovely vistas,
the Avenue Central, with Its million
of dollars' worth of buildings, and the
harbor Improvements that will cost
millions and lead the world." Jtlo's
park system is one of the most
notable features of the city. The
municipality has 507,000 square me
ters laid out in parks, squares and
parkways, and in addition the federal
government maintains most extensive
The climate Is excellent It Is
never any warmer even In the center
of the city than the average summer
weather In New York or Chicago, and
In 15 minutes on the electric car the
heights overlooking the sea can be
reached where the residential dis
tricts are located and where the air
Is always cool and Invigorating. The
winters last from May to October and
an overcoat Is generally necessary.
Rlo's location, its beautiful bay, the
surrounding hills and mountains
clothed In eternal verdure, are Incom-
narable. It Is a. verv ennmnnnlltnn
lclty and her citizens have all tbe ele
gance, luxury and refinement of Paris,
Brussels or any European capital.
Everybody looks prosperous, and as
most, everybody is making money,
many are spending it fast. Rio Is one
of the most costly places In the world
to live, since everything eaten, worn
and used Is Imported. Chickens are
S3 and $4 apiece, turkeys $8 to $12,
butter $1 a pound. An ordinary quar
ter pound can of baking powder cost
$1.08 on bargain day.

8un, Exercise and Baths as
Kansas City, Mo. A new religion,
centering in the stomach Instead of
the soul, and having salvation ot this
life and not some future existence as
its aim, is being launched in Kansas
City by Mrs. Katheryn Boggs of To
peka. "All religions of the past," says Mrs.
Boggs, "have been bound with tra
ditions and unnecessary formality
and have made demands on human
credulity which were unreasonable.
Comfort, health, truth and peace,
where they have been present in the
religions ot the past, were accidental.
In my religion they are the objects."
Last Easter Mrs. Boggs opened Trin
ity Home In Topeka for the followers
of what she termB "Practical Chris
tianity." Whosoever wished to come
was welcome. To this home she ex
pects to return at some time In the
future, and admit all who desire to
live the new religion.
Some of the practices of this re
ligion are: Daily baths of sun, water

good for the body as pure air, sun

essentially one of tbe stomach. And

PUT "GHOST" ON DEFENSIVE
Irishman Was In Tight Place, but Not
Too Frightened to Ba Ready
To Illustrate the ever-ready wit of
tbe Irish tbe following story was told
at a banquet held recently:
An Irishman on bis way home st
night was in the bablt of cutting
through a cemetery in order to short
en the distance. A group of friends
evolved a scheme to have soma fun at
his expense. Accordingly they found
a sunken grave across which his path
lay, dug it out and covered It with
toards in such a manner that he must
fall Into the yawning cavity.
Tbe Irishman came along and
everything happened as per schedule
While he was still squirming about in
the bottom of the hole, striving to ex
trlcate himself, three or four of his
friends, attired in white sheets and
other ghostly accoutrements, sudden
ly made their appearance. Pat was
frightened out of his wits and almost
'ainted when one of them said:
"What are you doing in my grave?"
The tone was sepulchral. It made
tbe Irishman's hair stand almost on
end, but he could not forego a witty
"Faith, and what are you doing out
of It?" he asked.

For prompt relief, if you suffer from any of the troubles

and as its success of more than 50 years clearly shows, it
can, as a reliable remedy, be depended on, in time of need.
