i an up-to-date sanitarium, the tent
colony plan being employed. The first
colony plan was ready lor the recep
tion of patients on Jan. 1, and is
equipped to care for 60 patierts, to
which number admissions must be
limited for the present.
The tents are octagonal structures,
with shingle roofs, canvas sides, hard
wood flocrs on solid cement founda
tions.heated by a central plant, equipped
with all modern conveniences, such as
telephones, etc., and each tent will ac
commodate one patient. An admin
istration building for physicians, nurses,
dining hall, baths of all kinds, etc.,
stands in the center of tho colony.
Dr. J. E. White, formerly of the
Nordrach ranch sanitarium, the medical
director in charge, statss that only
those consumptive members who arc
curable, or whose lives may be pro
longed for a considerable length of
time, will be admitted as patients. The
wisdom of this rule is apparent. Rigid
medical examination as a condition
precedent to admission will be ipsisted
upon in every case, and special blank
form3 have been prepared for this
It is expected that another colony of
60 tents will be ready by July, 1909,
and that acceptable patients will be
ready to occupy it in full by that time.
A movement is already under way to
equip the second colony plant. Lach
tent, completely equipped, represents
an expense of $250, and a number of
local camps, or lodges, of the society
have decided to donate tents. As there
are over 13,000 local camps of Modern
Woodmen, and over 1,000,000 members,
it is anticpated that several colonies
will soon be equipped in this way.
The members of the local camps of
the society have voluntarily contributed
to f.he sanitarium fund over $70,000,
and at tho last national convention a
permanent tax of ten cents per mem
ber was voted to the support of this
The last official Woodmen reports
show that during the years 1891-1007,
inclusive, 14.5 per cent of the total
mortality, or 5, Ion deaths, were
charged to tuberculosis, and that 13.9
per cent of the total insurance losses
in those years, or $9,065,000, resulted
from this cause. As the mortality ex
perience of the Modern Woodmen
Society has been remarkably favorable,
being but 70 per cent of the expected
at all ages under the National Frattr
mil congress table, a deiuh rate of but
6.29 per 1,000 -or but 4.98 per 1,000, if
the experience of the first five mem
bership years be included -the much
heavier insurance losses inflicted upon
other societies experiencing a higher
mortality may be conservatively ap
Which prompts this question: If the
Woodnu n Society, with its exception
ally favorable mortality, finds it to be
"good business," as well as good
fraternalism, to fight consumption in
this way.why should not other fraternal
societies, life insurance companies
labor organizations, the national and
international church bodies, etc., find
it profitable, from the viewpoint of
bnsiness or benevolence, or both, to
take such action?
Each life saved to the Woodmen
Society, by means of this sanitarium
will, it is stated, represent a savin? of
$1.700-the average amount of the
Woodmen policies in force-at an ex
pense for treatment of approximately
one-twentieth of that sum. In the
broader sense, each life saved means
the preservation to the family of its
head and bread-winner, and to the
state of a useful, self-sustaining citi

"Put him off at Plattsmouth because he
will then know just where he is going to
get off and we will all know where he is
getting off. We know that he will get
