lr. J. N. McCbrmatk, chairman of the
organisation committee of the American
Medical association ami secretary of the
State Board of Health of Kentucky, told
a. Council Bluffs audience which filled the
auditorium of the public library building
about "Things About Doctors Which Doc
tors siid Other People Ought to Know."
There were many women In the audience
and the medical profession was largely
represented. Congressman Waiter I. Smith
presided and, Introducing the speaker of
the evening, briefly told of the work that
Dr. McCormack was accomplishing
throughout the country.
Dr. McCormark takes the position that
one-third of the sickness and deaths from
same could be prevented If there was a
better care for the public health and If
the public at large was educated to bet
ter sanitary conditions. He spoke at length
In the Interest of pure food and pure drugs
and made a vigorous sttack on patent
In opening Dr. McCormack referred to
the fact that to the lay mind medicine
has long been one of the occult sciences.
It was the object of his address, as far
as possible, he said, to lift this veil. Con
tinuing, he toldthe work of the Ameri
can Medical association and of the results
of his own Investigation of medical con
ditions In this country and abroad.
Praise for Cosntry Doctor.
Speaking more directly of the medical
profession. Dr. McCormack said:!
All orofesslons do altruistic work. The
lawyers, the ministers, the press do work
of this sort. The doctors of the country do
more Christian charity than all others put
together. The country doctors, the noblest
specimens of God's manhood, go from
hovel to hovel, healing God's poor. Thre
Is nothing like It tinder the sun. Doctors
take an oath that If they ever make a dis
covery that will be of benefit to suffering

humanity It will be given to the public
without money and without price.
After stating that It was conceded that'
the cost of living In the United States had
doubled within the last ten years. Dr. Mc
In almost every state poverty In the
medical profession constitutes one of Its
great dangers. Doctors have not shared
In the current prosperity. While the cost
of living has materially Increased their
fees have not. At the same time the coat
of Instruments and hooks has vastly In
creased. Many a doctor after finishing his
course and starting out In his profession
has leen unable to provide himself with
the necessary Instruments, medical bonks
and other equipment. Either his fatnllv
has to suffer or his equipment has to suf
fer. If It is the latter his mitients suffer.
It Is Intolerable that these men who hold
such risks should bo in such oovertv that
they rannot keep up with the times. It
constitutes a menace to the public at large.
Speaking on the better protection of the
public health and- Improved sanitary con
ditions. Dr. McCormack said In part:
A state bosrd of health, with great lab
oratories, making continual Investigation
In the cause of disease, is as Important to
the state as the state supreme court. A
state board of health with sufficient flnsn
clal support would have a number of trained
inspectors at the schools, st the dairies,
slaughter houses and food packing plants
You must realise this before you can stop
the death rste in. this or any other state.
The largest tax on the country today Is
for funerals that ought not to occur.
We should have the teachers and show
them the principles of sanitation, the venti
lation of school houses, etc. In Japan they
have 2,0m - school docto's Inspecting the
schools dnllv. looking after eyes, throat,
physical deformlt ies, malnutrition and In
ffVtinn. We ought to have the same Itf
The closing part of his address was de
voted largely to en attack on patent medi
cines. He said the press throughout the
country hnd been a valuable ally In sup
pressing this great danger, as he termed It.

TROl'BLE GETTIXO SOUTHWELL JURY
Somber Examined no Wot Believe
Arthur Southwell, placed on trial In "the
district court yesterday for attempting to
murder Charles M. Hankins, Is pleading
"emotional" or temporary Insanity, emu
lating the defense of Harry K. Thaw, the
slayer of Stanford White In New York
Southwell's defense caused considerable
trouble In securing a Jury, no less than
seventeen members of the panel being ex
cused as they admitted they were pre
judiced. Most of the Jurors excused ad
mitted they d!id not believe in "brain
storms" or "dementia Americana."
"Have you any prejudice against the de
fense of 'dementia Americana' " asked
County Attorney Hess of one of the first
Jurors called. The Juror replied that he
had and so did several others In succes
sion. E. J. Ryan, the first JurorJo be ex
cused on this account attribute" his pre
judice directly to the Thaw case. A Jury,
however, was secured by noon and when
court' adjourned for the day the state had
rested and several witnesses for the de
fense hnd been examined. As JudKe
Wheeler had other matters to attend to
today the trial was continued until Mon
On January 80 of this year Southwell and
Hankins met on the outskirts of the city
and became Involved In an altercation
which ended In a fight. Southwell followed
Hankins Into the city to Harding's barber
shop on Test Broadway, where he fired
three shots at him from a revolver. The
shots went wide of their mark. Southwell
at the time was under indictment on a
charge of assaulting another man.
Some amusement was caused by one of
the witnesses for the defense, who was
expected to testify that when Southwell
became excited he suffered from temporary
insanity. In reply to the questioning of
Southwell's counsel along this line, the
witness said, "Why, he Just got real mad.
but he always knew what he was doing,
all right." The witness was quickly ex
cused by the defense.
Counsel for Esther Hardy, the 8-year-old
daughter of Mrs. Mary Hardy, 'dismissed
the personal Injury damage ult against
the City of Council Bluffs yesterday morn
ing before Judge Wheeler had passed upon
the motion of the defense to take It from
the Jury, which was argued Thursday af
ternoon. The dismissal was without pre
judice to the plaintiff. The child, wh,.
brought suit by her mother, fell Into an
excavation on Garden street one day last
fall while watching one of the balloons
sent up by the Street Fair and Carnival
company. The defense of tho city was

the poisons and impurities which are causing the trouble. It should not be

add to the burden, by disagreeably affecting the bowels, producing indiges

absolute vegetable purity of S. S. S. has always been one of the strongest
points in its favor, and is one of the principal reasons for its being now tho
most widely known and universally used blood medicine on the market.
It is made entirely of healing, purifying roots, herbs and barks of the for
ests and fields. These are selected for their well known curative properties,
and are known at the same time to possess the qualities to build up and
strengthen every part of the system by their fine tonic effect. Not only is
S. S. S. the king of blood purifiers, but it is the one medicine that may be
taken with absolute safety by young or old. We guarantee it non-injurious

and all diseases arising from a poisoned or impure state of the blood.
It goes to the very bottom of these troubles, removes every trace of disease,
enriches and builds up the blood and permanently cures where mineral
medicines fail. If you are suffering with any form of blood disease write for

Mason Gets Pardon.
Governor Cummins today decided tha
Jasper Mason matter by issuing a condi
tional pardon. If Mason does not behave
himself he can be returned to the peni
tentiary. Mason was convicted in Dallas
county for a murder and was sentenced
to the penitentiary for life. He was com
mitted to the Fort Madison penitentiary
October 27, 1876 and was transferred to
the Anamosa penitentiary April 16, 1896.
The pardon was issued after a consultation
with the attorney general. The law pro
vides that the legislature may recommend
pardons to persons convicted of murder In
the first degree, and sentenced for life. The
legislature recommended a parole and there
was some question whether the governor
could issue a pardon as provided by law
on a recommendation for a parole. The
paper was made to conform as nearly as
possible with the law. Mason was . sent
to the penitentiary nearly St. years ago,
when a young man. He will go to Kimball,
S. P., to .make his home for tho present
at least, with a convict friend, whose ac
quaintance he made at Anamosa.'
