We Have every reason to hope
that the annual crop of tetanus
cases will not be so large after
this Fourth-ofJJuly celebration as
in previous years, for the "sane
Fourth" movement seems to
show a healthy growth, and te-
tanus occurs only in those plaees
that still tolerate an insane
Fourth. In 1909 there were re-
ported 1,225 blank cartridge
wounds [with 150 cases of tetanus,
while in 1910, largely as a result
medical press, there should be
no reasonable excuse for such ne-
glect. It should be remembered
that the percentage of deaths
from blank cartridge wounds re-
ceived in last year's celebration
was greater than from bullet
wounds, only 10.2 per cent of the
latter causing death, while 12.7
per cent of the blank cartridge
Wounds were fatal. The experi-
ence oi' each year, as to both

standing of tetanus antitoxin as

The big things in progress are
easily appreciated. It is easy to
emphasize the telegraph and tel-
ephone, the auotmobife and air-
ship, the neumatic tube and the
incandescent lamp. Smaller con
veniences are^ frequently over-
looked. Take, for instance, the
methods of affixing one piece of
paper to another. Mucilage and
flour-and-water paste date back
some time, but the ingenious de-
vices for containing and Applying
them are new. The tube for mu-
cilage or paste has touched dir-
ectly the lives of more persons

loved much, who has <?ained the
respect of intelligent men and the
love of little children, who has

his task, who has left the world

material and every detail in the
hands of the board of affairs.
In connection with their appoint-
ment it is interesting to note
that the three members of the
board are of very nearly the
same age. Lon M. Frame, chair-
man of both the board of affairs
and the capitol commission, is
39 years old, and both E. B.H^w-
ard. the secretary, and Eugene
E. Morris, the republican member,
are 37 years old, each. It is
also a passing note that each is
married, and each has one child,
all of - about the same ager.—k~

Mr. E. M. Green,
Dear Sir and Bro:—
I thought that some of the
boys would like to hear from old

and doing business at the same

stealing going on in this section
of the country, but we are hold-
ing it down pretty well. We
have only 22 members, but they
are all 'oval to the A. H. T. A.
