WHAT TUBERCULOSIS COSTS
J Immense Monetary Loss Caused the Country

I>r. Harmon Biggs of New York
• American Medicine), aftrr a careful
"s ituation, places the annual expense
tuberculosis to the people of the
i nited Stales at $330,000,000.00. He
first calculates the loss to New York

••ach life at the average at which
deaths from tuberculosis occur. This
gives a total value of the lives lost
annually of $1,500,000.00.
But this Is not all. For at least nine
months prior to death these patients

lo?3 of $030,000,000.00.
Dr. Ulggs also states that the total

not at present over $500,000 Do a year;
that is. It does not exceed two per cent
ot the actual Ions by death, etc. "If
ibis annual expenditure were doubled
or trebled it would mean a saving of
several thousand lives annually, to say
nothing of the enormous saving in suf-
fering.'' Further evidence of this is
afforded by the fact that in the last
twenty years the total number of

however, should be taken to avoid too

children, a marked and most favor-

by oil rubbing. Application of oil

Horrors of the Cocaine Habit.
The following Illustration of had ad-
vice In the lecture room Is probably
not an exceptional case. A professor
of materia medica lecturing on cocaine
• ailed it one of the greatest of all
hUmutants and perfectly harmless.
He cited his own experience of its
good effects, and advised the class to
tost it personally In debility and ex-
haustion. Of a class of thirty-two who
1 stened to this advice, five became
cocaine takers within two years. Ten
years later thirteen of this class were
drug and spirit takers. In all prob
ability, the use of cocaine was the
parting point of their addictions.
Four died from the direct use of this
drug. Evidently more than half the
••lass had followed the advice of the
teacher and were wrecked. A few
years after, the professor became an
invalid and retired from the profes-
sion, a victim of his own counsel and
confidence in cocaine.

gathering fruits, herbs and plants;
tlfcy knew no drink but water; were
not templed to drink or eat beyond
common thirst or appetite; were not
troubled with either public or domes-
tic cares, and knew no pleasures bul
those simple and natural in character.
"Many of these were said, at the
timo the country was discovered by
the Europeans, to have lived as long
as two hundred years."
This was without doubt an exagger-
ation, but that they were very long
lived Is evidenced by the fact that
within the last quarter of a century
there was an old woman living in Rio
Janeiro at the remarkable age of one
hundred and forty-one years.
Beauty of form and face are the nat-
ural lesults of right living, and to try
to get them In idleness by the aid of
massage, drugs, or physical culture, is
lo undermine the foundation for all
charm. Nature intended that we
should he of use, whether we are
genius or common clay, and natura
rules. We can't cheat her.

To settle down and end tho fus3.

A blessing to the thirsty flowers
And gentle zephyrs gather up
Sweet fragrance from each brimming cu]\

There's ruin in a voice of wrath.
And they alone are litest
Who early learn to dominate
Themselves, their violence abate,
And prove by their serene estate
That quiet ways are best.
To Manage Three
Since the reorganization of the Van-
derbilt roads cast ot Chicago, a short
timf ago, several changes have been
made in the operating department.
The mcst important is the promotion
of Mr. C. F. Dalv from the position of

Tuberculosis Rightly Classed.
The Health department of the city of
Philadelphia has decided that In futurp
tuberculosis shall be classed with
other diseases that are dangerous to
the public health, such as smallpox,
■diphtheria, scarlet fever, and other
vontagious maladies. The law in
Pennsylvania and most other States of
ibt> l"nlon requires that every case of
contagious disease shall he reported
lo the Health department. Hereafter
eli cases of tuberculosis must be so
epor*ed by the attending physician
The purpose of this law Is to enable
the Health department to take neces-
n ry steps to prevent the extension of
this diieast by disinfection of tao

or any kind of berries and put into a

Brilliant Surgeons Not Wanted.
Genius is some sort of neuresis, an
uncalculated nervous disease. The
few men of genius I have met were

Indeed, of all desperately dangerous

Treves in the Young man.
In the naval battle between the Eng-
lish and the French off Dominica in
April, 17S2, an English gunner was
standing by bis gun when the ship
Bheered abreast of the French flag-
ship. The gun was all ready and just
going to fire when a shot came in at
the port and took his leg off at the
knee. As quick as thought the man
pulled off his neckcloth and tied his
leg above the stump. The next instant
he seized his shot-off limb and thrust
It into the muzzle of his gun, which
went off two seconds later. " My
foot,'' shouted the man, exultantly,

Log Tells of Nelson's Death.
There Is still in existence the log of
Nelson's flagship, the Victory, on the
day of Trafalgar. A clerkly hand,
clear and distinct, wrote amid the
echoes of French and Spanish guns;
"The Right Honorable Lord Viscount
Nelson, K, B., commander-in-chief,
was wounded in fhe shoulder !h.
COmin." Later, on the other page:
"Partial firing continued until 4h
30min„ when a victory having been
reported to the Right Honorable
Lord Viscount Nelson, K. B., and
commander-in-chief, he then died of
his wound." And t^l the time In the
margin the variations of the wind

Good Prices for Chippendale.
A suite of Chippendale furniture
belonging to an old Essex family has
been sold privately at Saffron, Wal
den, England, for 1.&00 pounds. It
comprises a settee on six legs, twelve
chairs and five stools, eighteen pieces
in all. The frames were of walnut,
elaborately carved, with cabriole legs
and claw feet.

The lingerie blouse bids fair to be

grades of materials, ranging from the

One beautiful model is shown in a

tucks and tiny fleur-de-lis embroidered
over it. The design is simple, but is
worked solidly with linen floss. Two

pleasing change. The rose silk slip is
especially effective when the blouse

The Bell Cuff.
The bell cuff for card parties is
pretty, and it shows the hand and
gives one a chance to wear bracelets.
This cuff is shaped precisely like a

knuckles and is stiffened and trim-

Card Party Waist.
A very lovely separate bodice which
was called a card party waist was
made of the softest of golden brown
panno velvet. Its yoke and vest were
laid in folds, while across the bust
there was draped a fichu of white lace
in which there were embroidered
brown velvet dots. At one side there
was a chou of brown velvet ribbon.
The sleeves were shirred above the
elbow, and at the wrist there was a

Velvet Street Costume.
Simple Evening Frocks.
One of the prettiest ideas that the
season shows in simple evening gowns
j is the use of silk bands edging ruf-
Jlos of mousseline de soie. or the same
idea on other thin material. A girlish
frock is of white mousseline de soie,
j mounted over pink silk. The skirt is
; trimmed with flounces of wide valen-
| ciennes, with the points falling into
a straight band of blue velvet. The
same idea with narrower lace and
bands makes a fichu arrangement,
and there is a blue sa6h.
An equally simple frock is of white
crepe, with irregular lines of silver
| running through the stuff. The cor-
i sage is cut in surplice fashion and
| crosses with a line of blue velvet
| bows. The bottom of the skirt is
■ trimmed with a flounco made of a
broad liberty ribbon, edged and
headed with a ruching of narrow vel-
| This use of liberty ribbon as trim-
ming that Is shirred and used as ruf-
fles or shirred on both edges and used
as entredeux is an idea just launched.

Black Gown Popular.
A black gown has come to be a
i necessity in every well-appointed out-
i fit. There are always occasions when
brightly tinted clothes are inappropri-
ate, and there is, besides, always a
certain elegance about a well-made
and properly fitted black gown which
recomme nds it to the fastidious dress-
er. With these desirable features
may be included the lact that black
Is almost universally becoming to
women; some of the art critics in
dress, on the contrary, declaro that It
ages a woman, brings into prominence
every line and wrinkle, deadens the
complexion and is woefully unbecom-

—a large bishop to the elbow, set into
a long, easily fitted sleeve over the
under arm; in separate blouses or
shirt waists this is buttoned close to
wrist, but in the walking suit blouse
it is sufficiently easy to admit of an-
other sleeve beneath, If the weather
or occasion makes this desirable. The
still more popular leg o' mutton sleeve
Is now rarely plain fitting; It is ful-
in its length, and, though cut to the
arm below the elbow, is quite easy,
often gathered or plaited along tin-
inner seam above and wide enough to
need no buttons. In both these pat-
terns of sleeves the cuff extends well
