other , might bo authorized througl
their state railroad commissions ti

Interstate commerce act so as to prc
vide for a division of the country Int
contiguous districts composed' of th
states which largely Interchange o
exchange products with each othe
and provide for the appointment of n :

THE WHOLLY SANE DULL.
A Diseaseless , Stupid Age Foreseen
i by a Scientist.
| New York , Oct. 7. The man of the
future will be a sane , dlscaseless ,
sturdy , stupid creature when science
shall have lobbed the world of both
disease and genius.
1 Such was the picture drawn today
by Dr. William G. McCallum , professor
ser of pathology in the Columbia mil-
\ersity college of physicians and sur
geons. Ho was speaking at the openIng -
Ing of the school year of the Institu
tion. Ills subject was "The Fnturn of
t Medicine. " All diseases except those
due to accidental causes , such as a
burn , poisoning , cuts , etc. , would be
entirely eliminated , he asserted.
"In the study of disease , " said he ,
"we have made the most progress up
to date , but in the cure of disease wo
have made little , with a few brilliant
exceptions , including yellow fever.
"All Insanity in time will be stamp
ed out witli the
exception of that re
sulting from Impiudenco nnd intemper
ance , which always will exist , as they
are tlio price of a man's personal lib
erty. "
Ol' the ellseaseless. insanity-proof
age , Professor McCallum said :
"Indeed , since development of gen
ius and of special individuality nnd
charm seldom seem allied with per
fect mental symmetry and balance ,
but rather with some alight defect
which permits concentration in anoth
er direction , I am not sure that It
might not be very dull to live amour
I people of invariable , unblemished san
ity. "
