WHAT TUBERCULOSIS COSTS >
Immense Monetary Loss Caused the Country }
bv Its Ravap.cs—How to Retain
Health and Bodily Vigor
Cost of Tuberculosis.
Dr. Harmon Biggs of New York
(American Medicine), after u careful
estimation, places the annual expense
of tuberculosis to the people of the
United States at $330,000,000.00. lie
first calculates the loss to Now AorU
city by putting a value of $1,500 upon
each life at tho average at which
deaths from tuberculosis occur. '1 his
gives a total value of the lives lost
annually of $1,500,000.00.
But this Is not all. For afleast nine
months prior to death these patients
cannot work, and tho loss of service
at one dollar a day, together w ith food,
nursing, medicines, attendance, etc.,
at one and one-half dollars a day, Je-
suits In a further loss of $8,000,000.00,
malting a yearly loss to the munici-
pality of $33,000,000.00. For tho whole
country the 150,000 deaths from tuber-
culosis represent in tho sumo way u
loss of $3:50,000,000.00.
Dr. Biggs also states that the total
expenditure In the city of New York
for the care of tuberculous patients Is
not at present over $500,000,00 a year;
that is, It does not exceed two per cent
of the actual loss by death, etc. "If
this annual expenditure were doubled
or trebled It would moan a saving of
several thousand lives annually, to Bay
nothing of the enormous saving In suf-
fering." Furthor evidence of this is
afforded by the fact that In tho last
twenty years the total numbor of
deaths from tuberculosis In New York
has decreased Instead of Increasing,
although there has been an increase
of 70 per cent in the general popula-
before laws, or property, cr arts made
entrance among nu n. The Brasilians
lived without business or labor, fur
thcr than for their necessary food, by
gathering fruits, herbs and plants;
they knew no drink hut water; were
not templed to drink or cat beyond
common thirnt cr appetite; were not
troubled with either public or domes-
tic xares, and knew no pleasures but
those simple ami natural In character.
“Many of these were said, at the
time tho 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 tho fact that
within the last quarter of a century
there was an old worn a reiving in Itto
Janeiro at the remarks! \ age of one
hundred and forty-one years.

HOW MARTHA GOT RELIGION.
Beauty of form and fare are the nat-
ural results of right living, and to try
to get them in idleness by tho aid of
massage, drugs, or physical culture, is
to undermine the foundation for all
charm. Nature Intended that we
should he of use, whether wo are
genius or common clay, and nature

Clothing expoecs us to great dan-

Wo dress too warmly, bo the akin be-
comes relaxed, and loses the power to
take care of Itself, and this Is the rea-
son oil rubbing is necessary. The
simple removal of a thin layer of oil
by a hot bath may ho sufficient to
cause a man to take cold, so this must
be replaced by a special oiling, or
some other treatment, in cold weath-
People who are very susceptible to
cold, should ho rubbed with oil after
each hath. Oil rubbing is especially
nooded in cases in which tho skin is
dry, through deficient activity of tho
oil glands of the skin. Groat care,
however, should bo taken to avoid too
vigorous rubbing in the application of
.the oil, as sweating is very easily pro-
duced, to the disadvantage of the pa-
tient In tho treatment of infants and
children, a marked and most favor-
able effect upon nutrition is produced
by oil rubbing. Application of oil
after cold baths encourages reaction.
In most cases of chronic dyspepsia
when accompanied by emaciation, in
diabetes, and in most cases in which
malnutrition with dryness of tho skin
Is a prominent feature, oil rubbing is
a valuable curative agoncy.

Frequency of Tuberculosis.
From the Massachusetts Medical
Journal we abstract the following: At
the second annual American Congress
on Tuberculosis held in New York in
1902, l)r. Pryor stated that 14,000 per-
sons die annually in the State of New
York of this disease. One-sixth of all
tho deaths in tho world are due to this
one disease. Statistics show that in
France 150,000 die every year of this
disease; in Germany, 170,000; in the
.United States, 160,000; In Paris, 11.-
000; in London, 13,000; New York
Of deaths between the ages of nf
teen and forty, tuberculosis claims one-
third; between fifteen and thirty-five,
one-half. Tho mortality from tubercu-
losis alone exceeds that of war, plague,
cholera, famine, yellow fever and

Traffic Manager of the Lake Shore,

“Mammy’s’’ Efforts of Great Assist
ance in the Case.
I was seated one evening in the
warehouse of a friend In the quainl
old town of Newbcrne, North Gi ro
lina. On the opposite side of the
street was an African church in which
a revival meeting was being held.
From the partly opened windows
came the sound of shouts and the
usual melodies of tho colored race.
Suddenly the door opened and three
young colored women emerged there-
from. The one In the middle was be-
ing supported by her companions on
either side and her arms were swing-
ing in the air, and as they walked
along the street she shouted in wild
emotion something that sounded like
“Got salvation! Foun’ my Savior!
Hoi’ onto my Lawd!" and was led
away by her friends. Cleaning up the
office In the corner of the warehouse
was an old colored women. Turning
to her 1 said: “Auntie, what is the
matter with that girl?”
"Why, bless your soul, chile!” Aun-
tie responded quickly, "don’t you
know what's the matter with her?
Why, she’s got 'ligion! But she ain’t
got it half as had as some people has.
Had to hoi' my Marfa down for 'n
hour and a half when she got it."
I said; “Is that so Auntie? Did
Martha kpep It?”
"Oh, yes, she’s kept it; lost it once;
but she got it again."
"How did she get It again?"
"Well, sir, I just done licked it into

An Interesting cave has just been
discovered on the allotment of Nancy
Fatubby, a fullblood Choctaw, living
near Antlers, It is about four miles
southwest of Davis on what is known
as Wild Horse creek. Those who
have visited this cave claim that it
seems to widen out Into large under-
ground river which flows rapidly.
They say it can be traversed 300
yards without difficulty, but from
there on for a quarter of a mile it is
a difficult task. Notches are cut in
the wall, and Indians living in the vi-
cinity claim that the cave was once
inhabited by robbers.
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 modica lecturing on cocaine
called it one of the greatest of all
stimulants 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
listened 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 tho
starting point of their addictions.
Four died from the direct use of this
drug. Evidently more than half the
class 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.

Short Talk About Perplexities Met
With in Life. .
Never climb a hill until you get to
it, advises a writer in Medical Talk
for the Home. We remember as child-
ren that in riding through the country
wo had a dread of high hills. How
often we saw far ahead of us, on the
road, a formidable looking hill. How
high and rough and steep it looked,
and how we feared it. How hard it
would be for the horse to carry us up
such a hill. We were sure he would
slip and fall and maybe upset the
carriage and so, with the greatest ap-
prehension. we would approach the
dreadful hill. But how surprised we
were as we came nearer to find the
hill receding, growing flatter, and real-
ly no hill at all when we reached the
point that seemed so high and craggy
So it is with many of life’s perpexi-
ties. How darkly they loom up before
us, what a black pall they spread
around us. But when we get close up
to them they have vanished entirely.
We spoil so much of life In fear and
foreboding. We let slip the beautiful
moments that are ours and spoil them
by dreading the moments of the future
with which we have nothing to do.
We ride over the nice, level country,
forgetting its beauty, unmindful of its
delight, dreading the hill that never

Tuberculosis Rightly Classed.
The Health department of the city of
Philadelphia has decided that In future
tuberculosis ahall be classed with
other diseases that arc dangerous to
tho public health, such as smallpox,
diphtheria, scarlet fever, and other
contagious maladies. The law in
Pennsylvania and most other States of j
the Union requires that every case of
contagious disease shall be reported !
to the Health department. Hereafter
all cases of tuberculosis must bo so
reported by the attending physician.
The purpose of 'his law is to enable
the Health department to take neces- j
nary steps to prevent the extension of ,
this disease by disinfection of the
apartments which have been occupied j
by the patient, and by instruction of 1
the patient and the patient's friends j
how Infection from the disease may be ;

We have received a communication

It is proposed to attempt a new de-
parture in the treatment of tubercu-
losis by sea voyage. A large sailing
vessel will leave this country about
the end of January for a long voyage
In warm latitudes and will be prepar-
ed to convey a "number of consump-
tives, limited to fifty, of inebriates and
of other Invalids.” It is intended that
the patients suffering from tuberculo-
sis shall live on deck day and night
whenever the conditions of weather
permit, so that they may have the
advantage of constantly breathing ab-
solutely pure air containing much
ozone, * During the voyage the vessel
will call at, among other places, Gib-
raltar, the Canary Islands, Rio de Ja-
neiro. River La Plata, Pernambuco
and the West Indian Islands, and op-
portunities will be given for the pa-
tients to land and see a little of the
countries thus visited. Such is the
prospect put before a limited number
of Invalids whose circumstances,
physical and social, permit them to
avail themselves of it.—The Lancet
