Washington.—Further spread of the
livestock foot and mouth disease
caused the extension of the federal
quarantine to Rhole Island, Massa-
chusetts and Iowa. Reports to the
department of agriculture announce
the discovery of the epidemic at South
Attlebury. Bristol county, Mass., and
at I arnell, Iowa, the first case west
of the Mississippi. Cattle, sheep and
hogs, now cannot be moved out of

In addition to the states already
quarantined Mississippi is believed to
be threatened with a case at Como
where it is Reported a herd has con-
tracted the disease.
Hope was expressed upon the re-
ceipt of no reports of new cases in In-
diana and Michigan that the epidemic
there has been Dlaced under control.
On the other hand new cases were
found in Lancaster county, Pennsyl-
vania and in three more counties in

down the epidemic. It would not.sur
prise officials if the cost would be
nearer the $2,000,000 expended by the
German government to eradicate the
disease from among Its cattle a few
years ago, than the $300,000 spent by
the American government in fighting
the 1908 outbreak of the disease. The
expense of having inspectors trace the
various shipments from infected cen-
ters will be very large. Ten new in-
spectors were rushed to Wisconsin,
Iowa and Massachusetts. Department
officials have suggested to the pro-
moters of the Royal Cattle show to be
held at Kansas City, Mo., this fall that
the event should be postponed.
Chicago Yard Closed.
Chicago—A large part of the cattle
receiving and meat packing industry
jf the country, long centered in Chi-
cago temporarily was shifted to Kan-
sas City, Omaha, St. Joseph, Mo„ and
other western cities and the Chicago
Union Stock Yards, for the first time
since its organization in 1865, was
closed down for nine days in conse-
quence of the prevalence of hoof and
mouth disease among cattle. The
quarantine against the stock yards and
all other cattle pens within the state
went into effect at all plants. The
state's action supplements the federal
quarantine against Illinois.
No more cattle, sheep or hogs are
to be received in Chicago until No
vember 16 when business is to be re-
sumed after the wards have teen thor
oughly disinfected and pronounced
fre from the disease.
The effects of the quarantine at the
union stock yards were shown in thf
prices of poultry. Anticipating s
stronger demand for poultry by reason
of the epidemic of foot and mouth dis
ease among cattle, the price of live
fowls has advanced four cents a pound
in the last 48 hours. The price ol
dressed meats bo far has not been ef
fected and assurances given by the |
packers are to the effect that it wil
C. Y. Devry, chief animal keeper at
Lincoln Park, among whose speci
mens are a number of the cloven hool
animals, which alone are said to h«
subject to the disease, took alarm a!
the situation. He said that he woulr
make certain that the hay given hii
bison, sacred oxen, deer and the like
had not come from an Infected district
aud that he would not bring any new
animals into the zoo for six months at
The killing of cattle and swine, ill
of the disease continued at the stocl<
yards and disinfectants were scatter
ed all through the yard.
More prize winners at the recent
dairy show were taken sick and were
Isolated for observation.
J. Ogden Armour, head of Armoui
and company, issued a statement tc
the effect that there is no danger of in
fection from dressed meats and Dr. O
ffi Dyson, chief veterinarian of tht
state, gave out reassuring word that
there is no danger in milk where the

reached an acute stage. The crater,

candescent matter known as magna,

comes lava. Of this matter during
the night of October 31 alone, over

reaching a height of 320 feet. In ad.

DEFENDS POPULAR REMEDIES
Speaker Says Newspapers Should In-
vestigate Merits of Medicines Be-
fore Barring Advertisements.
That an organized attempt has been
made to blacken the reputation of the
popular family remedies of this coun-
try. and to mislead the newspaper
publishers Into rejecting the adver-
tising of such medicines, was the
charge made by Carl J. Balllett, of
Buffalo. N. Y„ at the convention qf the
Advertising Affiliation at Detroit.
Mr. Balliett is a director of the Pro-
prietary Association of America, which
Includes in Its membership two hun-
dred firms which make the popular
prepared medicines of America.
Mr. Balllett pointed out that It Is
the duty of the newspaper publisher
to refuse the advertising of any fake
or fraudulent medicine, just as It is
his duty to refuse any fake or fraudu-
lent advertising, but It is not right to
shut down on all medical advertising
because there have been some fakers,
any more than It would be right to
refuse to publish all department store
advertising because certain stores
have made a practice of lying about
Disease and death are mysteries.
People who are perfectly well are
skeptical. They laugh at the time-
worn patent medicine Joke, Just as
they laugh again and again over the
many variations of the operation Joke
—"The operation was a success but
the patient died." This so-called hu-
mor has perhaps hurt the medicine
business with well people, but when
the hitherto healthy man feels a se-
vere pain or illness, he Immediately
wants medicine, and will bless the
cure whether It be at the hands of a
regular doctor, a homeopath, an osteo-
path. a Christian Scientist or patent
medicine. There is nothing more
deadly than disease; nothing more
honorable than to cure It.
Mr. Balllett refuted the idea sought
to be spread about that patent medi-
cines are unpopular by showing that
from 1900 to 1912 the amount of pre-
pared medicines consumed In America
Increased from $100,000,000 to $160,-
000,000 annually. He showed that, al-
though the American Medical Associ-
ation is trying as an organization to
exterminate socailed patent medi-
cines, the family doctor, Individually,
Is not fighting them but prescribing
them. He estimated that 40% of the
prescriptions written by doctors today
Include proprietary medicines.
The writings of Dr. Harvey W. Wi-
ley, he said, have also aimed to de-
stroy confidence in proprietary medi-
cines; but that Dr. Wiley's ideas are
not infallible is shown by cases where
his analyses were entirely wrong. Mr.
Ralliett mentioned a case where, with
all the power of the Government, he
fought a preparation as being danger-
ous to health, and was ingloriously
There has been spread the idea that
a clever faker can mix a few useless
Ingredients and, by smart advertising,
sell tons of It and win sudden wealth;
whereas, as a matter of fact, the medi-
cine business Is notoriously difficult,
and. where there has been one success
at It, there have been a hundred fail-
ures Any medicine which has no
merit cannot live, because persons
who are duped Into buying it once will
not buy it again, and the profit from
advertising a medicine can only come
from repeat sales to the same, satis-
fled people. Therefore, any medicine
wbleh has been on the market for a
number or years, and is *tlll adver-
tised, must have merit behind It to ac-
count for Its success.
In conclusion Mr. Balllett declared
that no newspaper is doing justice to
its readers in the matter of medical
or other advertising, unless it Investi
gates, not only the wording of the ad-
vertisement offered for publication,
but the merits of the article adver-
tised. He pointed out that the few
newspapers who have been deluded
Into the policy of barring out medical
advertising have adopted this general
policy, rather than to form an inves-
tigation bureau of this kind which
could. In a constructive and useful ef
fort, investigate and decide what Is
a good product and what is a fraud.
In not only the medicine business, but
In every other business which adver-
tises its wares to the public.
The audience seemed to agree with
Mr. Balllett's ideas on the subject and
the chairman decided the question at
Issue in his favor.
Put That Pain to Use
The network of nerves in your body,
like the network of wires in a burglar
alarm system, gives quick warning
when anything is going wrong Inside.
Looking at It in this way a pain is
a useful alarm. Now, kidney weak-
ness iB a dangerous tiling—a condition
not to be neglected—and it is wise
to know and pay attention to the early
alarm signals of sick kidneys.
Backache Is a common warning of
congestion or Inflammation in the kid-
neys. It may be dull, nagging pain, or
a sharp twinge when stooping or lift-
ing. There are likely to be disorders
of urination, dizziness, headaches, and
drowsy, despondent, tired feellngB.
It Is very hard to strengthen weak
kidneys at first, but neglect Invites
rheumatic or neuralgic attacks, gravel,
dropsy, and fatal Bright's disease.
Ab a special medicine for weak kid-
neys Doan's Kidney Vllls have been
used for years all over the civilized
world, and surely are considered reli-
able. The patient can always help the
medicine immensely, however, by diet
Ing lightly, using little or no liquor,
tea or coffee, keeping regular hours
and drinking lots of pure water.

SOME TERRIBLE WAR BILLS

ment Heads the List in
Point of Size.
The wars of Napoleon in 13 years
cobt France $1,000,000,000, writes Wen-
dell Phillips Dodge in I.«die's. Our
Civil war expenditure of the federal
^government was $3,400,000,000, near-
ly thirteen times as much a year
as Napoleon's. The Franco-German
war cost France $1,580,000,000, be-
sides an added war indemnity of $1,-
000,000,000. This same great war,
which lasted only 190 days, cost Ger-
many $450,000,000 for an average
fighting force of 1,250,000 men. The
other big European war of the past
half century, the Russo-Turklsh war,
cost Russia $786,100,000, but she had
two years' fighting for her money.
The war in the far East cost Japan
$650,000,000 and Russia $723,000,000,
not counting lost ships. Only toward
the end had either side anything like
a million men In the field. Italy's
little war with Turkey cost $400,000 a
day, allowing for a mere 60,000 fight-
ing men; and the Boer war. In which
England's army averaged 200,000, cost
$1,056,000,000 In two and a half years.
A Fine Night.
Maude Marie was a sentimental
miss of twenty summers, who seemed
to look on the world with a gentle
sigh, relates the Kansas City Star.
John Henry, who though her some
sweetness was almost crudely prac-
tical. One evening they were leisure-
ly rambling along the country road
when John Henry noticed that Ma,ude
Marie's thoughts seemed far off.
"You look like somnambulism, Ma-
rie," remarked the young man.
"Where are your thoughts?"
"I was thinking of the night, John,
dear," tenderly replied the fair one.
"Isn't It Bubllme? Isn't it glorious?
Isn't it the most wonderful night you
"Yes." was the startling rejoinder
of the practical John. "It is just the
kind of a night to shoot cats."
