Unsanitary 'Conditions Greatly Assist
in Spread of Scourge and It May
Be Hard to Suppress.
St. Petersburg. St Petersburg is in
the grasp of the Asiatic cholera, which
already has exceeded in severity and
'numbers the visitation of 1893. The
disease is increasing daily to an alarm
ing rate and unless the authorities
show in the future a greater degree
of ability to cope with the situation
) than they have in the past, there is
every reason to fear that it will get out
of hand.
j The government's threat to apply
provisions of martial law has driven
the municipality. officials to bend all
their energies to clearing the city of
the scourge. The aldermanic council
j voted $250,000 to enlarge the hospital
space, to purchase and distribute dis
infectants, the supply of which in St.
Petersburg is well nigh exhausted, and
to expedite the interment of bodies,
which has been notoriously slow. The
dead houses are overcrowded and
many corpses are unburied.
Under his authority as prefect of St.
Petersburg, General Dracheffshy pro
hibited the sale fit liquor throughout
the city, including the government
vodka shops, until September 22, and
he has further ordered that after that
the sale of liquor shall be suspended
at 2 p. m., on Saturday until 10 a. m.,
on Monday. This action has been tak
en in order to diminish alcoholic ex
cesses, which very materially increases
the liability of cholera infection and
the general spread of the disease.
A beginning was made when public
schools were transformed) into hospital
wards. A number of the grammar
schools were closed and 4,000 students
sent to their homes. The department
of war has opened stores to supply
immediate needs and army field kitch
ens have been dispatched to the poor
er quarters to dispense free food.
The situation assumes a graver
aspect from the appearance of a very
virulent type of the disease in two
cases in which death followed within
fifteen minutes of the first symptoms.
As announced by the official bulletin
the cases numbered 349 and the deaths
148 during the twenty-four hours be
tween Friday noon and Saturday noon.
This was a considerable decrease from
the preceding day, but there is doubt
of the accuracy of the official state
ment. The record for the same twenty-four
hours, ascertained from unof
ficial but reliable sources, shows the
actual number to have been far in ex
cess of that.
Points Out Necessity of Electing the
Republican Nominee.
Oyster Bay President Rocsevelt in
a letter to William B. McKinley, chair
man of the republican congressional
committee, appeals to disinterested
citizens to join with the national re
publican commitee and the congres
sional committee, in a movement to
elect William H. Taft, as president
and a republican congress to support
him. After reviewing some of the im
portant legislation of the last seven
years, the president declares that Mr.
Taft and the republican candidates
for congress seek election on a plat
form which specifically pledges the
party to continue and develop the
policies which have been acted upon
for seven years past.
All the aid that can be givsn to per
petuate the policy of the government
as now carried on, the president says,
should be given by every good citizen

Only Then Are You Appreciated for
Your True Worth.
Upton Sinclair, the novelist was
talking about wealth at Lake Pla
cid. "It is pleasant to be rich." he said.
"Nobody can deny that. Many of the
pleasures of wealth, though, are false
and mistaken ones.
"When I was making my living by
the composition ofb!ood and thun
der tales for boys and I could turn
out my S.C00 words a day I knew a
pale, bent, ink-stained old chap who
wrote love stories.
"His stories did not pay; he was
very poor; but an aunt died, and sud

" 'Yes. it is." he answered, as he
lighted a Vuelto Abajos and handed
me another. 'And do you know what
is the pleasantest thing about it? You

you. You get at last to know "people
capable of esteeming you for your own
qualities alone. You find, sir, that
you are at last appreciated." "

Microscopic Writing.
A remarkable mcnine made by a
lately deceased member of the Royal
Microscopical society for writing with
a diamond seems to have been broken
up by its invenfor. A specimen of its
works is the Lord's prayer of 227 let
ters, written in the 1.237,000 of a
square inch, which is at the rate of
53.S80.000 letters or 15 complete
Bibles, to a single square inch. Ta
decipher the writing it is necessary to
use a 1-12-inch objective, which is the
high power lens physicians employ for
studying the most minute bacteria.
Wanted to Go the Same Way.
We were taking a little trip into the
country. The only vacant seats in the
train were turned so as to face each
other. I told my little girl, four
years old. to take the seat in front of
me, as riding backward would not
make her sick. She hesitated, and
"I know it won't make me sick, but
if I ride backward will I go to the
same place you are going to?"

"It is clear, Potson," said Herlock
Shonies, "that the farmer who raised
this spring chicken was very tender

that?'' asked the astonished Potson.

hesitated so long before striking the
fatal blow." Bostou Transcript.

Girl Starving on Ill-Selected Food.
"Several years ago I was actually
starving." writes a Me. girl, "yet dared
not eat for fear of the consequences.
"I had suffered from indigestion
from overwork, irregular meals and
improper food, until at last my stom
ach became so weak I could eat
scarcely any food without great dis
tress. "Many kinds of food were tried, all
with the same discouraging effects. I
steadily lost health and strength until
I was but a wreck of my former self.
"Having heard of Grape-Nuts and
its great merits, I purchased a pack
age, but with little hope that it would
help me I was so discouraged.
"I found it not only appetizing but
that I could eat it as I liked and that
it satisfied the craving for food with
out causing distress, and if I may
use the expression, 'it filled the bill.'
"For months Grape-Nuts was my
principal article of diet. 1 felt from
the very first that I had found the
right way to health and happiness,
and my anticipations were fully re
alized. "With its continned use I regained
my usual health and strength. To-day
I am well and can eat anything I like,
yet Grape-Nuts food forms a part of
my bill of fare." "There's a Reason."
