Just coma from the pross fmm the pen
qf an Omaha author. Dr. Millard Lan-
y te6, profeaor of bacteriology and clinical
medicine, John A. Crnlghton Medical col
lege;, and foarterioloaist of the Oman
Board of llenlth. While the book (Intro
duction to Infectious and Pa rani tie Dis
eases, Includ'ng Their Caime and Manner
of Transmission) Is primarily for "people
dealing In a professional capacity with
auch disease, the language and Myle are
easily understood by the general public.
An Introductory note by I.wellys F. Baker,
professor of chemistry at Johns Hopkins'
university, strongly recommends the work
to the class of readers for which It Is In
tended and expresses the hope that It may
lead others "to undertake sufficient prac
tical work In the subject of bacteriology
to permit them to apply In their various
occupations the principles of this science
o Important In connection with medicine
and with the nursing of the sick."
The scope of the book Is Indicated by the
chapter headings, ten In number, namely,
Cause of Disease, Bacteriology, Phenomena
of Infection. Animal Parasites, Avenues of
Eiit . of Infectious Agents and Parasite
front the Body, Port a 1 9 of Entry of In-
. fectloua Agents and Parasites Into the
Body, Portals of Entry and Avenues of
Exit of Mlcro-oiganisms In the Various
Disease. Disinfectants and Disinfection,
Collection and Examination of Secretions
and Excretions.
Definition) of Health.
Defining health as "thnt condition of the
body In which all of Its -functions are
normally performed, to the end that a
, feeling of mental and bodily comfort Is
experienced;" the author regards dlaeas
sis a result of a rupture in the relation
ship of bodies to their surroundings which
leads to disturbed functions, and to ur
usual subjective sensations and objectlM
pneumonia. The causes of disease ar
declared to be mechanical, physical, chen
teal and animate. In differentiating li
fectloua 'diseases four stages are commonly
noted: An Incubation period, a period of
Invasion, a stationary period, and a period
of decline. The author says: "An In
fectious disease must be regarded as a
battle to the death between the body, 011
the one hand, and an Infectious agent on
Ihe other." The statement Is made that
Infectious disesaes are self-limiting, thnt
Is, 'end to spontaneous recovery, due to
the presence In the body of antibodies,"
which consist of antitoxins, and bacteri
cidal substances of which the latest dis
covered Is "opsonin." This "opsonin" Is

fectious agents for easier destruction by
the "phagrcytes" or certain white blood
cells which destroy these agenta.
Modern Treatment.
"The modern conception of disease takes
the position that recovery from an In
fection Is always brought about either
through the production of an Immunizing
a substance by the body or through the In
troduction of the same from without,',' and
Dr. Langfeld continued,. "The use of antl
f toaln In disease marks the highest re.
flnement of specific medication, In that an
f Immunising substance is Injected Into a
patient which can be depended upon to
counteract or neutralise a definite pois
onous (toxic) substance; the body of tha
patient thus being relieved of the burden
of producing antibodies, the Immunity
forced upon the body of the animal from
which the antibody Is taken being trane
ferred to the patient."
As to contagious or communicable !'
aeases, the declaration Is made that they
occur "when the microbe Is readily com
miinlrable from person to person by medi
ate or Immediate contact." Of all known
forms of bacteria, of which there are
hundreds according to Dr. Langfeld. only
ibout forty are known to produce disise
In human beings, the others are accounted
beneficial, as they )ve on dead orgunic
matter. The author then defines and Il
lustrates different forms of bacteria and
tells of factors necessary to their growth.
Facet of Iloeterla.
Taking up the effect of bacteria on the
system under the head, "Phenomena of In
fection," five Infectious agents In disease
au,numern;ed: Microbes must be present

dlc!njre startlleg to those not entirely
familiar with such phenomena. Parasites
which cause many diseases require two

body before fully developed; thus the para
site causing malaria and yellow fever
come to man from a mosquito; that of the
African sleeping sickness from a stinging
fly; thst of the tapeworm from a Tea.
"The aoitrce of every Infectious disease
Is always another Infectious d'sease," say
tie author; "that 1. the inf"ctlou sgert
has come directly or Indirectly from some
other person, and In this connection. In
the matter of the exit of micro-organism
from the body In disease we have the key
to the happiness of families, the prrsrerwy

Inter contlnurs: "In the dlr. ml of s-a-e

and the Indifference with which the public
views the pollution of the watr supply by
alvlne discharges Is ft shame to ourmuch

Ttilnsra to lie ATolded.
Dr. Langfeld disclaims against the use
of human excrement a fertilizer of soil,
saying that the practice Is common to
Chinese truck farmers and should be mad
Illegal. No diseased person should handle
vegetables or fruit which nr.- to be eaten
raw. The places In which the pickers live
should be made sanitary. The possibility
l carrying disease from distant points by
neans of rapid transit of perishable food
is touched upon and a suggestion made for
further Investigation.
One chapter gives an epitome of all In
fectious diseases, giving cause, location of
germ in body, Its manner of entry and
exit; how contracted and the disinfection.
.Another chapter Is perhaps the most Im
portant one In the book sine It deals with
disinfection and disinfectants, and another
tells physician, nurse and laymen the best
method of collecting and examining secre
tions and execretlons for submission to ex
perts for examination.
The peculiar value of Dr. Langfelds
book lie not alone In the fact that It
treats a subject and elsewhere satisfactorily
covered, but that It treats It In a manner
free from the confusing scientific mystery
thst too often bars medical writing from
the comprehension of ordinary people.

In addition to the foregoing allegation,
the motion charges three of the Jurors with
misconduct In drinking Intoxicating liquors
to excess during the progress of the trial,

At St. Paul a much-discussed question
by those who were Interested was the ad
visability of establishing a loan library
for the bureau. Many of the best library
workers felt that there was a doubt as to
the feasibility of such a course, while
others considered that no equipment of
the bureau would be In greater demand.
The decision was In favor of the loan

Memorial to Miss Abbott.
The following memorial to Miss Mary

who died March 23, appears In the May
The executive committee of the board
of directors can express only In silent sor
row the loss every member of the General
Federation must feel In the death of the
warm friend and co-worker, the chairman
of the educational committee. Through
those who knew her dally personal life,
surrounded with kindred reoulrlng loving
.care, we shall learn of the In opy, buoyant
spirit, tho broad view of life, and tho
broader tolerance of pettiness that could
not touch her upward search.
The last Intercourse of the executive
committee with Miss Abbott was held In
Chicago recently, where she gathered, at
her bidding, the officers of the National
Education association In conference, with
representatives of six organizations of
women, concerning educational Interests
of the nation. Every word she said In'
explanation of her far-reaching plans was
listened to with absorbing interest.
In her memory, nothing would, have
seemed to her so happy as the successful
result of this first meeting. Let us work
with her thought, her enthusiasm, before
us, until we make It a part of ourselves
and carry her love of this beautiful world
Into action.

One of these collections of American paint- j

towna In Nebraska, Kentucky, Iowa, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, West Virginia, North and
Bouth Carolina, Georgia and Florida, while
still another has traveled through New !
England. These collections Include work
loaned by the foremost American artists
and the cost to the club or town exhibiting

ctt Das; Ordinance.
OMAHA, May '.-Editor of The Hee:
It Is doubtless of small Importance, yet
1 always like to keep a straight record.
Yeur reporter makes me to approve the
muzzling feature of the new ordinance on
dogs. I did not. I do not. The new or-
j Is Just the same In principle as
j the old one. It is simply curative to rnt-et
I Ihe decision of Judge Kedick, who held
me oia orainance void, because It con
ferred legislative powers on the mayor. I
waa opposed to the old ordinance. I am
opposed to the new. But only because of
tha muzzling feature Implied or expressed
In each. That dogs and other animals
should not be allowed to run at large, In a
, large city, to annoy or Imperil the public
la clear as the day. That the owners of
dogs should be held to the strictest ac
countability for their animals Is equally
clear. But I do not see either the neces
sity or trre humanity of ordering the In
fliction of the cruelty of muzzling dogs as
an alternative to their being securely kept
' on owner's premises. The council might
Just as well order the hobbling of horses,
or the dehorning of cattle, as an alter
native to their being kept on the streets.
The muzzle Is a cruel restraint upon the
dog, especially In the hot months of sum
mer. It does not, it cannot prevent the
annoyance of which more people complain
than complain of danger from rabies; the
annoyance of dogs running at large at
tho cost of gardens and plants and email
shrubbery. t
But now, sir, .the law Is passed, and so
It Is no use to waste time In complaints.
As It does not compel 'people to muzzle
their dogs, may I not ask the humane peo
ple of the city who own dogs to eschew
the muzzle and keep their dogs securely
confined at borne, at all events for the
next four months, where they can be
regularly fed and watered, and have full
power to defend themselves from their
tormenting Insect enemies.
It will be no use at all to ask Irre
sponsible persons to refrain from muzzling
their dogs. It Is the easiest way to buy a
2S-cent or a 60-cent muzle for their dogs,
and let them run at large to annoy their
neighbors and exposed to attacks of stray
unlicensed, unmuzzled dogs, rabid or not
which will have Tree Oiurse through the
city, where neither policeman nor dog
catcher are to be found.' I may add here,
that If the dcg-catchlng' force Is to be In
creased, as some of the councllmen sug
gested on Monday, the capacity of the dog
pound will have to be- Iwereased two. three
or four fold, or else thfilme during which
dogs are to ba held Wfore they are killed
will have to be correspondingly shortened.
The dog-catchers are tiow taking up 260
or 300 dogs a month. That Is very near the
limit of the pound's capacity, under our
present rules. JOHN WILLIAMS.
Take In New Members and Lay Wires
for Tvent y-Flfth Anniversary
The club rooms of the local lodge of
Elks were taxed Friday night, the occa
sion being the Initiation of new members.
Ten were given the trip across the burn
ing sands on tVie back of the goat, the new
ritual being used In Omaha for the first
time, and wus pronounced by the members
as being beautiful. After the business
meeting and the Initiation ceremonies a
delightful banquet was served and the
flow of wit was Interesting.
The celebration of the twenty-first an
niversary of Omaha lodge No. 19. Bene
volent Protective Order Elka, which
was to have been celebrated Febru
arys 7, was necessarily postponed on
account of the death of two members of
tha lodge. The season of lent followed,
and It waa decided not to take the matter
up during that period. At the meeting on
Friday evening last the matter was fully
taken up and discussed.'
With the Intention of making It one of
the most pretentious social affairs ever
given b ythe local lodge It has been de
termlned to hold a stag social May 14 at
the Auditorium, to which, as Is customary,
each Elk will have the privilege of bring
ing an Invited guest, and In addition it Is
expected that one thousand business men
of Omaha and South Omaha will be In
The use ef the Auditorium for the func
tlon Is made necessary because of the Urn-
j Hed quarters available In tha Elks' bulld-
Ing, and the lodge baa made a liberal ap-

success. Competent committees have been
placed in charge of the social features and
a representative body of Elks will act as
a reception committee at the Auditorium.
The Auditorium committee. In apprecia
tion of this Social, will furnish the full
and magnificent setting of the "Streets of
Paris" as a stage background for the occa
sion. The entertainment oommlttee have a
number of surprises under consideration
for the amusement program, and the acts
and "stunts" presented will eclipse former
efforts along similar lines.

to end with the atmosphere of the bowery,

with a variety of opinion from the theater I
going public. That there are weak spots t
m tne play will hardly be denied and even ,
the superb Interprets U n of Moll O Hara
by Blanche Walsh can hardly cover up
some of the shortcomings of the play It
self. It must also be conceded that there
Is strength and virility In some of the
cnaracters drawn by Mr. Fitch and the
local color and atmosphere are true to life.
The picture of bowery life Is drawn so
true that It Is almost startling especially
In the first act. '
Story of the Plar.
The story told by the play concerns the
redemption of Moll O'Hara. a woman of
the slums, worse than many of her neigh
bors because she has character and her
badness Is not the result of weakness, but
of perverted strength. She haa gone al
moBt the limit through her cynicism when
her heart Is touched by Miss Thompson, a
w-ealthy slum worker, who appeals to the
mother Instinct that, asserts Itself even In
this drunken and abandoned creature. The
result Is Moll leaves her old life and revels
In the glory of her redemption and the
love of Bill Hubell, a barkeeper. The crisis
In her life comes when she finds the man
Miss Thompson Is about to marry Is a
faithless roue and unworthy In every way.
She resolves to save her friend from what
must be an unhappy marriage. Her de
nouncement of th wretch Is not believed
by Mlsa Thompson, and finding It the only
way to open her eyes she makes an ap
pointment with him In her room and ar
ranges to have Miss Thompson break In
upon them unexpectedly. The plan works,
but she is 'first discovered by her own
lover, who renounces her as faithless. Mies
Thompson also refuses to believe her guilt
less, and abandoned by nil her newly made
friends she Is on the verge of returning to
debauchery when she Is recalled to her
good resolves by the picture of the virgin
hanging on the Wall. The play ends hap
pily, however. In the good old-fashioned
It Is In the third act that the power
of the play la developed. This la the act
In which the revelation Is made to Miss
Thompson at so great cost to the reformed
girl. It Is also Just here that th weakness
In the development of the plot Is seen.
The element of suspense Is almost lacking
In th. scene because of the rapidity with
which the situation Is developed. Moll
O'Hara, after being renounced bv hVr
lover. ' plunges headlong Into ber resolve
to go back to her old life, and then no less
precipitately changes her mind when her
eyes tail on the picture of the madonna.
The audience Is hardly given time to get
Itself Into full sympathy with either situa
tion before the change comes. Besides
soul crises are hardly passed even by per
sons of strong character In such a precipi
tate manner.

Aside from this defect the play has much

given an interpretation nine snore 01

talents Is proven. If proof were required,
by the contrast between the first and tin

act her fidelity to truth makes hr por
