Campaigning the Country
By OTTO FRANC BRADLEY.
• Kariners, more than anyone else, will
(profit by the recent unique venture
of the Wisconsin Antl-Tuberculosis
Association 'n sending out a lecturer
on a tour of the state, carryins an ex-
hibit for daylight talks, a McIntosh
Stereopticon fop illustrated evening
lecture*, and a complete camping
equipment. Practically all of his time
will be devoted to the rural sections.
* This is the first campaign of this
kind that has been made, although
anti-tuberculosis societies hi^ve been
looking for a practical way of carrying
the educational campaign into the
country. Through it is not fully real-
ized by the Keneral ipublic, there is
almost as much, if not as much, tu-
berculosis in the rural "districts, per
capita of population, as in the crowd-
vVhere there is one case of tuner-
culosis in the country, there is usually
more. Oftime.s it takes, one by one,
the entire family living at home. The
patienj, infects the others, who assume
man's tent serve for this purpose very
well. The culinary department, also,
is not encumbered with any unneces-
The importance of this campaign
in Wisconsin can be appreciated when
we remember that one half of the
population is rural. With extensive
and efficient (instruction concerning
the disease, and the extension of the
movement for sanatoria where the ad-
vanced cases can be ca*ed ror without
infecting tl o rest of= the family, we
may look for a substantial falling off
in the country, of the death rate tfom
In the Plymouth Rock3, long broad
backs, well spread tails, legs set well
apart, low, well separated fine point
combs, red eyes, yellow legs, and sur-
face color same as ma^es breast will
make good breeders. Same applies to
male. Under color should be good to

Ten Miles For A Cent
AHARLEY-DAVIDSON MOTORCYCLE can be operated at
a cost of from one-tenth to one-sixth cent per mile. It costs
nothing when idle and will last for years. It is ideal for quick trips
to town for repairs and provisions and will carry an e$tra passenger
or freight weighing up to 250 pounds. The
!i Avi n
is the only motorcycle which lias a Ful-Floteing Seat. This device
does away with the jolts, jars and vibration so unpleasant on the
The Free-Wheel Control, another patented feature, does away
with the objectionable hard pedaling or running alongside to start.
Instead the Harley-Davidson can be'stopped and started by the
mere shifting of a lever. *

In an attempt to extend their edu-
cational campaign to the country, the
Wisconsin Anti-Tuberculosis Associa-
tion, during the summer of 1911, sent
a field worker out with a team and
wagon to take an exhibit into the
country. The cost of keeping a team,
coupled with the loss of time spent on
the road, made this work very ex-
With the motorcycle, however; Mr.
Werle, the Wisconsin Lecturer, is
reaching .even more people among the
rural population than'he would on an
ordinary tour of towns by rail. Early
in the morning he is down at the
creamery with the exhibit, instructing
the farmers who bring in milk, and
arousing their interest so that they
will study the literature which lie dis-
He can usually gather a crowd for
a noon talk in some village in the
vicinity. The machine will cover the
ground so rapidly that lie can get on
to the next town in time to have a
gcod rest and cook his supper before
the illustrated evening lecture.
Compactness is a feature of this ex-
traordinary equipment. For this lect-
ure, which is given out of doors when
the weather permits, the stereopticon
is operated from the luggage carrier
of the morotcycle, the light being sup-
plied from the regular gas tank which
feeds the head and tail lamps for
night riding. A special curtain is
carried to show the pictures on, al-
