Last Sunday evening at the Chris
tian church Homer McKay spoke to
a large crowd on his trip and
observations of the condition in the
canal zone, where he and Mrs. McKay
visited during the past winter. Leav
ing New York one evening they found
themselves ju:-t off Cape Hatteras
when morning broke in a very rough
sea. The women folks were very sick
ami had to stay in t heir staterooms,
while Mr. McKay was unaffected by
the storm and rough sea. At the end
of six days they arrived at Ci istobol,
the end of their journey by boat.
Speaking of the city of Panama,
Mr. McKay said that it is a city of
110,000 population, and occupies about
one-fourth of the territory which
Plattsmouth dues. The streets are
v.'i y narrow, and while they have a
street car service, the cars are com
pelled to run -so close to the houses
that one riding in them ca-n smell the
breath of the ones in the house, and
which he remarked was far from like
otter of roses.
The rooms, while some of the build
ings were th'-ee stories in height,
were about eight feet square, and
in many cases housed a.; many as (en
persons. Every business house from
the millinery store to the implement
house, carried a stock of bottled
whisky. Whether kept for snake
bites or not he did not say.
In Panama was the end of the
whi.sky business, for he said that no
one was allowed to s ll whisky or any
thing else on the canal zone proper,
fcr tho government done that them
selves. He gave a detailed account
of the trip which they made through
the canal, which was given to the
readers of this paper some time since.
The speaker gave a very vivid de
scription of the dances which were in
dulged in by the blacks and the whites
in the zone. In the ones participated
in by the blacks, while both the gen-t!-men
and ladies dance! together,
Indi .criniinaU-Jy they never came in
contact with each other, not even to
touching one another, being free from
the hugging effect which charac
terized tho dances of the whites. No
"bunny hugs" or "grizzly bears' in
theirs. But when the whites shook
the light fantastic toe it was differ
ent they did not fail to practice all
the late variations.
Speaking of the freight charges, he
said that some of the larger vessels
cost ?1 7,000 to get through the canal,
but even at that would be a great
saving on making the trip around
The incentive of hard work was not
noticeable, on account of the fact th'nt
all the necessities of the people were
furni.shed by nature, as bread fruit
grew wild, and that clothing was
often dispensed with, and a great cut
in the cost of high living.
There were acres of tools, cars, en
gines and material which had been
used on the construction of the canal
laying out in the open rotting and
rusting until in a short time it would
be of no value, but could not be sold.
The address of Mr. McKay was one
of great interest. and given in a very
fascinating manner by the speaker

At the present, cold, damp weather
is ve:y inuueive to rheumatism, bad

crs of the Journal that Osteopathy is
the best treatment known, because it
gets at the cause of the trouble.
There's a reason for all the aches and
pains of rheumatism and Osteopathy

Lodium salicylate is recommended
to relieve the pains (Dr. Stockman,

edition), but not as a curative agent
Dr. McLaughlin. M. I)., in "Abrige-

no curative treatment."
Now, since the drug doctors have
practically all admitted their failure
to successfully treat rheumatism, why
