T WAS at King's Port not its map name, of course
that Mr. Wister found Lady Baltimore and laid the
scene of his love-story of the Carolinas. Imagine the
most charming of Southern cities; old and shabby, hushed
and gray but peopled with a high-bred society more ex
clusive and self-sufficient than that of any court in Europe;
a . town where the atmosphere and the small talk of the
j forties are still preserved. In this rarified atmosphere rear
.'a native lover, and at last confront him with a fiancee who
' spends her summers with the Newport "smart set" playing
bridge, drinking high-balls and smoking cigarettes.
Alf A. bull in a china-shop would be a more welcome guest

King's Port. Was it any wonder that the old town was set
by the ears, that the young man wondered if he hadn't made
a mistake, and as many social tangles presented themselves
as a dozen chapters would scarce unravel ?

Discusses Negro Criminal.
The morning session was given over to
the physicians' department and a number
of Interesting papers were read, while this
afternoon the association met at the state
penitentiary where, after the session, War
den Beemer served a lunch and the entire
delegation Inspected the. Institution.
,In discussing , the negro, rl.mlnar Presi
dent S. H. Blltch of the physicians' de
partment of the National association pre
dicted the -extinction of , the negro raoe
through disease, principally tuberoulosla
The negro Is growing weaker every day
through the ravages of these diseases. The
time will soon come when he will be ex
tinct. He cannot mix with any other race,
and therefore I see nothing In the future
for him except death. The people of. my
state, Florida, are doing what they can
to help him, but it is Impossible to save
him. We build him a school wherever we
build a white school and he has assimilated
all the education that it Is possible for
him to assimilate. It Is the younger gen
eration of negroes that Is afflicted with
these diseases and that bespeaks the utter
ruin of the race.
Dr. Blltch then contrasted the condition
of the negro before the civil war and at
the present time, making the point that
he waa in a much worse condition now than
Before the war the negro was well fed,
well clothed and given plenty of outside
work. It was to the Interest of his mas
ter that he be healthy and that he In
crease. Since the rebellion the negro has
left the farm and flocked to the thickly
settled cities. There he lives as best he
may, living In Idleness and want, crowded
into tenement houses abounding with filth,
and he sleeps where he can. He does not
get wholesome food and the outdoor work
that Is necessary for him. His condition Is
In Florida, Dr. Blltch explained, the negro
prisoner was leased to contractors and
worked constantly out of doors. This he
said had proven the best system that the
south had ever tried because the negro waa
of an outdoor race and could not survive If
locked In the prison by day and by night.
"How many of them do the guards
shoot?" asked a delegate.
"Very few," replied Dr. Blltch, "but I
have not the statistics with me. I will say.
however, that the death rate among the
' negroes In our prisons Is less than In any
; state In the union."
In Florida there are thirty prisons and
they contain about 1,400 convicts of whom
90 per cent are negroes. It is not the white
race that Is treating the negro unfairly.
Dr. Blltch said, but the negro waa treating
himself unfairly. Other than offering the
outdoor air treatment for the negro crim
inal. Dr. Blltch made no suggestion a to
Improving his condition.
Tnbercalosla ia Prisons.
Dr. Walter M. Thayer read a paper pre
pared by Dr. Ransom of the clinic prison.
Dannemora, N. Y., on the "Necessity for a
More Rigid Entrance Examination for Con
victs With Reference to Tuberculosis
Dr. Thayer said replies to inquiries on this
subject had been received from seventy-
nine institutions and from nearly every In
stltutlon had come the Information that
tuberculosis waa prevalent. Dr. Thayer
furnished considerable statistics on the
death rate from tuberculosis which he used
to prove the necessity for quick and heroic
action at once. He prescribed the open air
treatment and Insisted that every prisoner
brought to an institution be thoroughly ex
amlned for symptoms of the disease.
Snrgery m Car for Crime.
Dr. Kolmer, with charts to Illustrate.
spoke of the good of surgery for a cure of
criminals. Dr. Kolmer cited a number of
cases where children who were addicted
to crime had been cured by an operation on
the brain. He had only been doing this
kind of work for a few years, however, he
said, and he was unwilling to say the
practice would result in permanent cures
because of the short time It had been In
Dr. H. C. Sharp of the state reformatory
of Jeffersonvllle. Ind., spoke of the needed
Improvements necessary to the physician's
department of a prison.
At noon the association adjourned to meet
at the penitentiary t I o'cock. where
Major Archibald, the patrol officer of
Canada, delivered an addreasa.
The Prisoner's Aid society of Canada,
with headquarters In . Toronto, waa the
oldest society of the kind la Canada, said
Major Archibald. They have active agents
who daily go to the Jails and police courts
and meet the discharged prisoners and ex
tend them a helping hand and secure for
them' employment. "And many of the reform
laws passed In Canada," said Mr. Archibald
"had their Inspiration In this society."
The Prisoners' Aid society of Montreal
another society that looked after dis
charged prisoners. This society has Just
decided to appoint an active agent to meet
and assist every prisoner discharged from
6t. Vincent de Paul penitentiary. In Winne
peg a local organisation is now at work and
doing great good. A. movement Is also on
foot to organise a society of the same kind
at St. John, while the Salvation Army keeps
a prison agent busy constantly.
Major Archibald expressed himself as he
Ing heartily In favor of the parole system.
'The wisdom of the parole system and tho
discretion exercised In Its administration
can be' Judged by results," he said. "From
the adoption of the system In 1899 until tho
close of the last fiscal year there were 1,082
paroles granted. Of this number 657, or
about 1 per cent have completed their
sentencea under license without violation
of the conditions imposed, while 8:5, or
about per cent ' additional have thus
far respected ' the conditions Imposed, al
though their licenses are still operative.
Those who forfeited their licenses by sub
sequent conviction and who represent the
really criminal element of those under li
cense number twenty-four, or but per
cent. The remaning 7 per cent have been
recommitted for non-compliance with the
conditions of the license but without chargj
of criminality against them during the
period fhey were at large."
In discussing the parole system and the
Indeterminate sentence law, Major Archi
"The question Is not one of substituting
for penal laws a sort of philosophical in
difference which wllp compromise public
security. It Is the question of stimulating
moral forces and developing generous in
stincts which are able to prevent the of
fense or the crime committed and after
the downfall of raising and rehabilitating
the guilty. No -one possessed of logic or
honest sense maintains the Irresponsibility
of the being who has done wrong. That
would be to affirm the inutility of correc
tion or recompense. It Is true that phys
ical constitution, education, heredity and
misery exercise a direct Influence on crimi
nality. Legislators have taken account of
these Inevitable reactions In the prepara
tion of laws and the graduation of pen
alties. "We hold the system of parole and the
Indefinite sentence systems are Just. Chas
tisement without a ..possibility of pardon
and forgetfulness discourages and de
grades; the hope of parole or of a pardon
provokes to effort and restores."
Disposition of Condemned.
In a speech to the association tonight.
Chancellor Andrews of the Nebraska uni
versity, after defending the Indeterminate
sentence law and opposing the definite sen
tence, suggested that, in cases of murder
where the condemned convict proved ob
durate that instead of being put to death
he could voluntarily give his person to
physicians for experimental purposes. Of
this he said:
A recent Issue of the Lancet reminds us
that Herophllus of Alexandria used in the
lounn century . c to dissect living crimi
nals sent him bv the state for this nurnoso.
In the middle age crlmUifUs were handed c-Tl
to physicians for experimentation with
poisons and reputed remedies. Perhaps this
was suggested by Cleopatra, who, when she
meditated suicide, would go down among
the prison vaults beneath the palace, have
slaves drag Into her presence those con
demned to die and try upon these one poi
son and another to see which seemed to
froduce death the most Instantly and the
east painfully. 8he thus found the asp's
bite the best, as It killed by quiet sleep,
like chloroform now.
A Parisian lady is said to have secured a
handsome competence by letting out her
body to physiologists for experimental pur
noses, while all remember with admiration
our soldiers who willingly occupied beds
vacated by dead victlmn-of yellow fever or
et themselves be bitten by Infected stego-
myla In order to get evidence how that
fever Is conveyed.
It Is, I suppose, fL fact that no further
knowledge of the human body Is to be
hoped for by studying the cadaver. All ad
vance in anatomy and physlo'otry for the
behoof of medicine ana surgery, helping
against disease, pain and death, must come
rrom tne examination or living specimens,
preferably human. One of the most UHeful
services to humanity which a live human
body could perform would be letting itself
be experimented with, under anestheela or
otherwise, to help solve outstanding phys
iological or biological problems. A body
used that way might easily produce benefit
to the race compared with which that of a
soldier's death In battle would seem trifling.
One would not ko so far as to wlsn hard
ened murderers under condemnation forced
against their wills to serve science in the
way named, but if sucn a suDject voluntar
ily submitted himself for such service under
the strictest and most benevolent guardian
ship, It would seem that the death penalty,
even of an Incorrigible murderer, might
Justly be commuted therefor.

YORK, Neb., Oct. 25. (Special.) In the
death of Daniel George, one of York
county' earliest settlers will be missed.
Daniel George was the first settler on the
Blue in the south part of York county,
locating there at a time when there were
no white men within 100 mile, and his only
companions were Indians,, who were not al
together as good : as they might be. They
barricaded their home to protect them
selves from Indian attaeks and a all was
prairie they plowed furrows around their
buildings to save them from prairie fires.
For years they operated a ranch, raising
cattle on the buffalo grass, and for a time
they did not realise the wonderful fertility
and productiveness of York county soil.

A QUESTION OF COST.
In any number of stores
youH see various prepara
tions of cod liver oil at as
many different prices. You'll
wonder, perhaps, why Scott's
Emulsion costs more than
some other kind in as large
a bottle. Hearing only one
side of the question you may
be led into buying the "just
as good as Scott's" at the
lower price. That's false
economy. Scott's Emulsion
costs more because its more
expensive to make. Every
ingredient is tested and guar
anteed of the purest quality.
No adulteration, no shaving
of quality. There's no econ
omy in bargain medicine. If
you can afford to experiment
with your health, substitutes
may satisfy you. We take it,
however, that you want a
pure preparation, a reliable
remedy and something that's
going to help you. That's
what you get in Scott's
