OLD HUH RESORT
TEMPLE WHERE HIPPOCRATES
PRACTICED IN 500 B. C.
Greek Patients Treated 2,400 Years
Ago Much as They Would Be in
a Modern Hospital — Ruins
New York.—The most famous of the
ancient Greek health temples and th
last whose ruins have been brought
into view Is on the Island of Cos In the
-dCgean sea, not far from the south'
west corner of Asia Minor.
There were larger health temples
than that of Cos, but the newly discov-
ered temple Is the most celebrated of
them all, because it was there that
Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine,
Btudled and practiced the art of heal-
ing and wrote some of the books that
have come down to us. It was therf
that he freed medicine from some of
the ancient superstitions and that his
powers of observation and scientific
insight led blm to discoveries of new
truth that were a blessing to the
Greeks for centuries after his death.
This forerunner of the modern hos-
pital was built about 2,400 years ago.
The place where it stood had been so
changed by earthquakes and the rav-
ages of time and men that it was not
identified as the sito of the health
temple of Hippocrates till three years
Then two Uritish architects began
digging and found inscriptions proving
that on this spot the long-lost temple
stood. Excavations were rapidly
pushed and the foundations and ruined
buildings, now revealed, were found
to cover an area ot 590 feet from north
to south and 423 feet from east to
So much has been found that it is
not difficult to make a mental picture
of the ensemble of the beautiful build-
ings (hat stood here over 2,000 years

is yearly becoming more plain to rais-

we must realize that pests of various

that if we are to be in any degree
a fruit-raising state, we must keep

tice of modern methods.
What then, are the pests which the
fruit raiser or the berry raiser must
fight here in the northwest? Among
plant diseases the apple scab (which
distorts the apples and impairs the
working capacity of the leaves), fire

It Is interesting to note that in
the instance of many of the above
(as in the case with many other
crop pests), man has beeii directly
the cause of his own suffering, for
by clearing the land and destroying
the trees and fruits which these in-
sects fed upon in the natural state,
he has made them only too ready to
attack the edible material which he
plants in the place of Nature's prod-
ucts. This state of things Is, of
course, Inevitable; man is bound
to make UBe of the soil for his own
material interests, and he has dis-
covered that he has to take active
measures against these innccts and
diseases which he has, as it were,

The practical fruit raiser or farm-

inexpensive compound which, if
faithfully used, will keep in check
both fungus and insect attack. Such
a spraying compound is found in
liquid Bordeaux mixture, to which
Paris green or arsenate of lead has
been added. We have found the
best recipe for Bordeaux to be the
3.3.50 formula. This is made by

tive in spraying for a year or two,
and his orchard and its immediate

It must be borne in mind that
Bordeaux is a means of prevention
rather than a cure, and leaf and
fruit, when coated with it, resist the
activity of spores of fungous dis-
eases, but if the thread-like growth
of the fungus (scab for instance),
has got below the surface of the
fruit or leaf, Bordeaux mixture does
not kill it. Should a heavy rain

A party of American tourists who
were comfortably established in a ho-

tribution to "English as she is spoke,"
only this time they found it in the
written word. The building had been
recently wired for electricity and un-
der the bulbs in each room directions
were posted in French, German and
English. The French was irreproach-
able, the German nearly so. The Eng-
lish read as follows: "To open and
shut the lightening electrical on, is- re-
quested to turn to the right hand. On
going to bed it must be closed. Other-
wise the lightening must be paid."
