of Disease and Remedy.
Points Out Its Dangers and Methods

Stamp It Oat, Which Can

Speaking under the auspices of the Iowa
Association lor the Study and Prevention
of Tuberculosis, which Is carrying on a
propaganda. Rev. Aretas Kepford of Des
I Moines delivered his one hundred and first
lecture on this dreaded disease last evening
... ,.. w. , r,
H the First Presbyterian church. Mr.
Kepford has been speaking on this sub
ject under the auspices of the Iowa so
ciety for just one year and during thla time,
previous to coming to Council Bluffs, had
delivered 100 lectures. He treats his sub
ject In the light of a great soclaf'evil and
In treating It discussed the social aspects,
the pathology of the disease, the Import
ance of an early diagnosis to check Its
action, the means by which the dreaded
disease is transmitted and the open-air
treatment which la said to be the only euro.
Mr. Kepford showed that he has made a
deep study of the subject and Is appar
ently versed In every detail of It. He de
livers his lecture in a manner that ap
peals to and Is easily comprehended by
the ordinary person. He makes it every
thing but the dry and obtuse medical lec
ture which the subject would indicate It
to be.
As an Introductory the speaker described
the pathology of the disease. ' He made the
statement that consumption Is not heredi
tary, although children born of tuberculous
parents Inherit a tendency because of Weak
ened constitutions. Neither Is consumption
contagious as smallpox, acarlet fever or
diptherla. The speaker said he referred to
this because of the tendency of people to
be afraid to associate with or go into the
room where a tuberculor person might be.
Tuberculosis is an Infectious disease and
the Infecting agent la the tubercale bacil
lus discovered by Prof. Robert Koch of
Germany in 1SS1

Importance of the early diagnosis, for con

sumptive must be destroyed either by

Preventlaar Its Spread.
Dealing with the prevention of the di
sease the speaker aald no incipient tubercu
lar patient should occupy the same living
apartments, to say nothing of the aame
Bleeping apartments with the non-tuberculous,
and diagnosing the disease early
will prevent the spread among the other
members of tho household.
Comlna- to tho social asDecta of the ouea-
tlon the speaker said tuberculosis Is a
social disease and that it la one of the re
wards of tho community life. The habit
of expectoration or spitting is believed to
be responsible to a very great extent in
spreading- thla dreadful scourge. Ant!
spitting ordinances should be enforced.
The hand-shake, the speaker said. Is
another means' by which the disease is
transmitted. No person should shake
hands with an advanced consumptive: This
danger, however, does not exist In an in
cipient case.
The kiss, the speaker stated, is another
dangerous source of transmission In fact
more responsible for the spreading of this
disease than anything else. In this con
nection, Rv. Mr. Kepford stated, the case
of a young woman who contracted the
disease from a kiss, waa married, her
baby dying at the age of months from
tuberculosis of the bowels, while she her
self followed It to the grove shortly after.
The young woman's father kissed her on

her death-bed, snd today Is a consumptive
In an advanced stage.
The common drinking cup, the common
communion cup, the speaker said, are both
agents In the transmission of the disease.
The disease Is also spread from tuberculous
.neat and milk, and In t'.ns connection ,th
speaker advocated that every city should
have a rigid Inspection of dairy cowa by
the tuberculin test.
Speaking on the open-air treatment Rev.
Mr. Kepford said, the open-air treatment
for tuberculosis Is the only means by
which this disease can be cured. This
treatment can be carried out In one of
three ways. In the shack, the tent, or the
screen porch. He said that It Is criminal
to send these consumptives to communi
ties In the west, who do not have suffi
cient means of support.
Regarding the disease In the state of
Iowa the speaker snld there are 2.CO
draths annually from tuberculosis and
that every one dying Infects three others,
and that 90 per cent of those affected die
between the ages of 15 and to, which, he
claimed. Is an enormous economic loss to
the state. This loss, he said, exceeds
$4,350,000 per annum

Ohio Man Tells of Benefits of Snch

Dr. Bond's address was mainly a plea for
organized charity through the formation of
societies of Associated Charities tn eaoh
city. Such organizations, he contended, did
not try to supplant existing organizations,
but rather to join them together for mutual
benefit and to prevent fraud. It prevents
professional beggars from securing aid from
different organizations and In this the Asso
ciated Charities performs a real service.
It has tha records of tha different charit
able societies and If some person is secur

fact It noted 'and an investigation results.
Dr. Bond also spoke of tha good done for
' tha children ' by the Associated Charities.
Tha object, he aald, waa to relieve suffer

County Has Money and
(From a Staff Correspondent).
DES MOINES, la.. July 1. (Special.)
Reports to the state auditor from the
county auditors as to the value of per
sonal property of various kinds in the vn-
rlous counties of the state disclose some f
Interesting situations. For Instance, the i
moneys and credits reported by Scott
county In 1906 were $0,927,050 and in 1007
were I7.C43.IM, while in Polk county In llrnO
tho moneys and credits reported were
$4,931,870 and in 19t7 only $.1.9'.W2. Fur
thermore the corporutlon stock turned Into
the assessor In Scott county In 19CG was
$8,854,200 and in 1907 $9.430,4fA while In
Polk county the stock turned In in li5 wns
$2,9:2.686 and In 1907 $1.2.10,fi91. Dea Moines
seems to have enjoyed as much prosperity
as Davenport and It might ordinarily soera
that Its moneys and credits ought to In
crease rather than diminish.
The figures seem to show there are more
rich people in Davenport than any other
county of the state. The reports thus far
to the atatjB auditor cover every county but
seven. The county auditors of Appanoose,
Black Hawk, Calhoun, Dubuque, Guthrie,
Lucas and Pocahontas have not reported.
On theae reports the executive council acts
as an equalizing board to equalize the
assessment, but the council does prac
tically nothing with the personal prop
erly In the line of moneys and credits and
corporation stock.
For personal property other than live
stock Davenport leads the race In Iowa
on the total footings. Its personal prop
erty other than live stock is valued at
$19,770,262 and Polk cornea next with $14,
453,270. The wealthiest counties of the state
given in their order are:
Scott $19.770,2f'J
Polk 14.453.276
Linn 8.4O4.2S0
Woodbury 8,397,084
Dea Moines 8.940.459
Clinton 6.743.2N0
Pottawattamie 6,496.142
Benton, Johnson and Lee have over four
and a half millions and Cedar, Clayton,
Jasper, Mahaska, Page and Wappello have
over four millions and leas than four and
a half millions.
Polk leads tn the amount of merchandise
reported, showing $4,990,427, but; Woodbury
Is a close second, with $4,768,208. Scott re
ports S2.4tJ7.196 and Linn $2,256,099. All others
thus far reported show less than two mil
lions. i Moneys and credits and corporation stock
are dXUflH. taken as showing the wealth
of a community.' ' It,, must therefore be
taken tnat Bcott county is-CHSiiy tpe ncn
est county In the state that has thus far
reported to the atate auditor or else there
are notorious tax dodgers in Polk county.

Sioux City residents to get a commission

Is the third largest city in the state and

Whether the "power of tongues" religion
that has attracted considerable attention
In this city is worthy the attention Is a
debatable queation with many who have
followed the newspaper accounts of the
mission's work. The religion Is not new.
It is reported to have come tp Iowa from
Ohio, though there la no authentic Informa
tion on that score. It came to Des Moines
with Mrs. Scott M. Ladd, wife of Judge
Ladd of the Iowa supreme court, who
moved here about four years ago. Mrs.
Ladd Is reported to have conducted a sim
ilar mission at their former home In Shel
don, O'Brien county.
The mission In this city was started In
the southern part of the city on the
bottoms in the section inhabited by the
poor of the city. Whether It is really the
"power of God" that moves the converts
aa Is claimed or merely the slupifying at
mosphere of the unventlluted room in
which the sect meets is for people to Judge
for themselves. The public has been led
to believe that the courts will settle the
question. This Is perhaps not likely.Resl
dents in the neighborhood of tho mlxnlon
have sworn out a warrant for Mrs. Ladd
charging her with .disturbing the peace
of the community. When she returns to
the city this will probably be served and
the court will decide whether or not she
disturbed the peace.
When the converts of this doctrine meet
they gather about an organ which is placed
In Ihe middle of the room. There is little
or no preaching. A song or two is sung
There is an evaporation from the body going on continually, day and
sight, through the pores and glands of the skin. This is nature's way of
maintaining the proper temperature of .our bodies and of preserving the
softness and flexibility of the skin, and so long as the blood is free from im
purities no trouble will result. When however, the blood, from any cause,
becomes infected with humors and impurities these, too, must be expelled,
and coming in contact with the delicate tissues and fibres with which the
skin is so abundantly supplied they produce irritation and inflammation, and
the effect is shown by Eczema, Acne, Tetter, pimples, rashes and skin
troubles of various kinds. To effect a cure the blood must be cleansed and
purified. : This cannot be done with external applications, but requires con
stitutional treatment. S. S. S. is tbe best treatment for all skin diseases.
It goes down into the circulation, neutralizes and removes the humors and
acids and thoroughly cures ekin affections of every kind. S. S. S. supplies
the blood with the proper nutritive qualities so that the 6kin instead of being
irritated and diseased by unhealthy humors, is fed and sustained by cooling,
healthy blood. Book on Skin Diseases and any medical advice desired sent

and someone speaks warning the unsaved
to repent and seek salvation and telling of
the punishment to come if they do not
heed. , There is more singing. They kneel
and pray. It Is during this prayer that
the alleged "manifestations of the spirit"
come. The petitioners at the throne of
grace are loud and emotional. Some can
not contain their feelings and they shout
and shriek. They become nervous and
tremble. The excitement works on all.
Then aomeone falls to the floor unconscious
and his or her limbs twitch and Jerk. He
ia sold to be "under tho power" and It Is
while in thla state that they have the
"power of tongues." They Jabber and no
one la able to understand what they say.
They are not able to understand them
selves. They have been known to He In thla
state for forty-eight hours. They always
come out ot It Intensely weak and must
be assisted from tbe place. People who
have gone to the mission aa curiosity seek
ers have noticed that the rooms are never
ventilated even in warm weather.
None of the followers of Mrs. Ladd and
the strange religion ever claim any other
power than this "power of tongues." There
is no claim te healing and no one has
ever claimed to have been healed. There
are no miracles. They simply get "under
the spell." Those who hav been under
the "spell" once seem anxious to go again
and always return to the mission.
The critics of the religion would not be
so severe if the religion did not seem to
have auch bad effects on the physical con
dition' of the persons who get this "power
of tongues." They say too, that it is
wrong to take children to the mission and
allow them to Imitate thetr elders in get
ting excited over the prayers and then, in
a poorly ventilated room alnk In a faint
and remain, there for hours without med
ical treatment. "' ' .,
Then again, they frankly confea ' that
they would ba much more reedy to' believe
that God was liavhig some Influence In the
matter of their unconaclous or semi-conscious
condition If this condition would
come over them In a well ventilated room,
and If the converts did not faint Juat fol
lowing a somewhat prolonged state of
high excitement of shouting and dancing
and shrieking and moaning In connection
with their prayers. In other words. It Is
too easy to explain the unconscious condi
tion of the converts by tha uhventllated
rooma and the excitement; too easy to ex
plain it by natural every day matters to
Justify attributing it to the Almighty.
The further criticism against the re
ligion la that at these meetings girls and
women are allowed to fall In the fatnts
and lay about on the floor in the aisles
and on the platform while the public meet
ing Is in progress, and that, too, at a
public meeting attended by many men of
not overly strict morale or refinement and
who are not above passing comments that
cannot be repeated here.
The ministers of Des Moines, however,
and the church people generally, will have
nothing to do with the matter. Thay are
following the advice of a certain wls Jew
In Christ's time, that If the religion ba
from God it cannot be hindered and If
not from God it will come to naught

A. M. Bteldley has appealed from the
Lee county district oourt to the supreme
court the case In which he was convicted
of stealing a bowl and crock of butter and
three cans of fruit from the cellar of
Christina Nelson of Melrose. The ques
tion put to the supreme court in the appeal
is whether or not Steldley's attorneys did
right In arguing to the Jury that because
big offenders frequently escape the law
Steidley, a little offender, ought to be ac
quitted. The district court sustained the
objection to that Una of argument by his
attorneys. The attorneys presisted In the
argument and the court ordered It stricken
out of the record. Steidley appealed.
Honor for aecurlng the Joint freight rates

the Iowa State Manufacturers' association.
In thousands of petitions presented to the
railroad commission the members of the
association asked for practically Juat what
the commission ordered, viz., 80 per cent
of the sum of the locals, through billing,
a minimum shipment for 26 cents and the
railroads to absorb the transfer charges.
Evldenoe la .not lacking that the associa

the bill passed by the legislature last win

officers of the association got together
and as the result of Investigations, decided
tn for the 80 per cent schedule. The
railroads sent a committee to the associa
tion and It was agreed that tin railroads
would consent to that schedule, but they
later backed out. The association, however,
held steadily to that till the end.
