THE EXTRA SESSION
HAS BEEN STRENUOUS ONE ALL
THE WAY THROUGH.
LAUGHTER PLEASING TO GOO
ADJOURNMENT IS AT HAND
Memorable Struggle Over Issues of
Which Reciprocity Was the
Washington. Congress- will ad
journ before Tuesday, night, possibly
Monday, and the most strenuous ses
sion of recent years will pass into
political history. The net results of
the extra session, in comparison with
the ambitious program adopted at the
outset were not large.
Canadian reciprocity was brought
as near reality as the executive and
legislative departments could ad
vance it; statehood was assured for
New Mexico and Arizona; campaign
publicity legislation was enacted in a
form satisfactory to its most earnest
advocates; provision was made for
an enlarged house of representatives,
Lased on the latest census, and a few
other measures of minor Importance
A democratic house, the first since
1895, seized on this session as a ve
hicle to convey to the country the
views of democrats on tariff revision,
but executive disapproval rendered
futile all efforts to impress those
views on the statute books.
Two tariff bills, one materially re
ducing the existing duties on wool
and woolen goods of all classes and
the other placing on the free list ar
ticles of machinery and tools used by
farmers and amended to include
many other items, were vetoed by
President Taft He based his disap
proval on the grounds that the bills
had not been "scientifically" prepared
and that tariff revision should wait
until reports on the different sche
dules had been made by the tariff
board. A cotton revision bill awaits
a similar fate.
The house, under the leadership of
Representative Underwood of Ala
bama, chairman of the ways and
means committee, and Speaker Clark,
endeavored to pass the woolen and
free list bills over the veto, but the
necessary two-thirds vote could not
be mustered. These failures to over
throw President Taft's veto were a
strong factor in determining leaders
to close the session, and it is not like
ly that congress will be in session to
receive a veto to the cotton measure.
Trust investigations without num
ber were instituted during the ses
sion, and some of them, notably those
bearing on monopolies in steel and
sugar, were prosecuted with vigor.
They still are in progress.
Constructive legislation to bear on
federal regulation of corporations is
regarded as certain to come from
these inquires. Plans already have
been instituted to revise the anti

Tuberculosis Patients Neglected.
Out of more than 225 public hos
pitals for the insane, with a popula
tion of fully 150,000, only 70, or less
than one-third, make any provision
for their tuberculous inmates, and
this, too, in spite of the fact that the
percentage of deaths from this dis
ease is very high among this class of
people. Such is the substance of a
statement made recently by the Na
tional Association for the Study and
Prevention of Tuberculosis. Seventy
hospitals in 28 states, providing all
told about 3,350 beds for tuberculous
insane patients, sums up the provision
made for this class of sufferers, al
though the percentage of deaths from
tuberculosis among the insane ranges
from 50 to 200 per cent, higher than
among the general population.

stomach troubles," writes a lady from
a little town in Missouri.
"It seemed as if I would never be

was best for me hardly anything that
I could eat would stay on my stomach.
Every attempt gave me heartburn and
filled my stomach with gas. I got

A few months ago I was persuaded
to try Grape-Nuts food, and it had such

what I needed.

so ripe as to scatter, there is much

in good flesh, attributes his success
largely to this fact.
