A HUMANE WORK.
During the meeting ot the medical
association at Atlantic City, n sugges
tion was made that the women physi
cians ot New York and other towns
ot the north should co-operate In the
work of teaching the poor to avoid dis
ease, says the Florida Times-Union.
Thus and individual work has be
come one of strength and union. The
physicians of the female persuasion
have already begun at their humane
task, and the poor, infected children
of the crowded quarters will be saved
by it. The great philanthrophy ot this
movement can scarce be weighed un
til on realises the want, the igno
rance and the disease that reign over
the tenement districts of New York.
The women especially will be taught
to take hygienic care ot their little
ones as well as ot themselves. What
is the use of supplying pasteurised
milk to the infants if the mothers
dont know how to feed it to them ta
n cleanly, sanitary manner. Besides,
pasteurised milk does not disinfect
a room where baby lives, neither does
it make him Immune from the dis-
ses which attack his elders with
whom he is in too close contact.
Teaching the poor, ignorant mothers
is saving the race, and no other class
of women can be better teachers ot
the miserable masses than the woman
who holds a medics! diploma.
The state ot Oregon has n unique
game law. The last legislature passed
an act making it a misdemeanor tor a
hunter to kill a deer that was being
chased by dogs, but at the same time
put in a proviso that prevents the
ranchers from killing the dogs that
chase the deer. It is claimed that
hounds protect the deer by chasing
them. This is the way it is explained
in Oregon. Hounds will rarely run a
deer down and kill it themselves, and
unless some hunter shoots it, the deer
will escape. But while the hounds are
loose they will clear the woods of the
animals that prey upon the deer. In
the spring a wildcat will kill nine or
ten fawns to feed its kittens, and tte
number of wildcats is so great that
they destroy more deer than hunt
From Alaska comes another news
Item indicating the enormous possibili
ties ot that once greatly derided coun
try. A ditch has been completed in
the Klondike region which is expected
to supply water for the largest hy
draulic gold-mining operations in the
world. It is believed at Dawson that,
within the next decade, the companies
included in this enterprise will extract
from $1,000,000,000 to $3,000,000,000
from the gravel of the region through
the new facilities thus afforded. Yet a
tew years ago the Klondike was un
known and the whole ot Alaska was
regarded as ot little or no account.

Constantinople. While a German
officer is occupied with reorganising
the army of the Young Turks, n Brit
ish admiral. Sir Douglas Gamble, will
endeavor to turn out a new- navy. He
has been lent for the purpose by the
British government, and there are
with him the following instructors:
Lieut Tottenham, gunnery; Lieut.
G wynne, torpedoes; Lieut. Fa ugh t,
navigation, and Engineer Lieut. Crois
Thanks to the enlightenment and
seal ot Admiral Artf Pasha, minister
of marine, a great deal ot prepara
tory work was got through before the
arrival of Admiral Gamble, so that the
latter found much better material tc
work upon than he had been led tc
The vessels had all been docked
and active' young officers placed in
command, several of whom had ac
quired a certain amount of experience
by service in foreign navies. Steam
and gun trials had taken place In Mar
mora, and a squadron had made
cruise in the archipelago.
The younger naval officers are all
very keen as regards their profession,
and as many have a good knowledge
ot English, they have not failed to
acquire such information as could be
obtained from reading English naval
periodicals and books.
Much translating work has been
done since what might be termed the
"emancipation of the navy" took
place, and the Instructors will find
their task much lightened by the seal
and willingness of both officers and

were prepared for sea. made their
steam trials and then proceeded to
the rendezvous, the historical anchor
age of the Princess islands, to await
the arrival of the flagship. The Mes
sudieh, with Admiral Gamble's flag at
the masthead, arrived the other after
noon, and for the first time in many
years the echoes of the island group
were awakened with the thunder of
the guns In the salute to the commander-in-chief.
Not since the last war with Russia,
when the British fleet, under Sir Geof
frey Hornby, took up the same an
chorage for the protection of Con
stantinople, has a similar event taken
place on account of the abhorrence in
which the ex-sultan held the sound of
ann-thing like a cannonade.
Startling Warning to Blonds.
New York. A startling warning to
blue-eyed persons of light complexion
is uttered by Dr. Charles EL Wood
ruff, surgeon and major in the United
States army, who has just completed
a private tour of the prisons and asy
lums of the city and state. Jails and
other institutions, he says, are full of
blonds who are unable to stand the
struggle for existence in a climate to
which they are unfitted and have fal
len into poverty, disease and crime.
What is true of New York, he says,
is true of the country as a whole, and.
unless the blonde American finds or
adopts some better means of survival
than- he has at present, he will be
wiped out as a type in favor of the
Grinning Idol Scares Burglar.
St. Louis. The grotesque features
of an Aitec idol frightened a negro
buglar into hysterics while he was
pursuing his vocation at the resi
dence of Charles II- Tucker. The
burglar dropped his flashlight and
jimmy with a crash and awoke the
family with the noise he made in get
ting out of the house. The idol, with
other relics of a dead people, was
brought from Mexico last winter,
when Mr. Tucker made a business
trip to that country.
Ban on Park Kissing Lifted.
