jslrurtlve and Inspiring effect In calling
attention to the Importance of safe
guarding Hie public health, as distln
'gutuhed from the health of the indl
; vldual.
The public health. In the broad
sense, Is essentially the greatest asset
of a nation and should be one of the
nation's chlefest concern, but the rec
ord shows that this development has
come late In modern civilization. Pa
ternalism and centralization have man
ifested themselves In some degree in
every other phase of activity, while
but too little attention lias been given
to tho public health. It Is perhaps
strange that lawmakers, students of
economic conditions' and sociological
experts have devoted much time and
thought to the relations of the Individ
ual to the community or the nation In
all other matters, while giving but
scant attention to the socializing of
the health question, the broadening of
the base so as to Include whole popu
lations Instead of Individuals. ,
Selfishness and indifference are
probably at the bottom of this neglect
of a question that vitally concerns the
public. The average citizen Is prone
to feel that he has done his part when
he takes care of his own health and
that of his family and shows a reason
able Interest and concern In the health
of his neighbors. Recently there has
been an awakening of the Individual
to his responsibility toward the public
health. Science has been active in
proving that most epidemics and con
tagions are due to conditions which
could be removed. Thousands of citi
zens die annually from preventable
diseases, and this fact places a respon
sibility for the whole people upon each
Individual. In the face of such con
tagions and epidemics the individual
is helpless, regardless of his ability to
employ the best medical service, and
the duty of precaution becomes a pub
lic, not an individual, responsibility.
In a recent article in Science Prof,
William T. Sedgwick advances the
theorem that for every death prevented
by the purification of a water supply
two or three-deaths are avoided from
other contingent causes. On this
feature of public oanltatlon Prof. Sedg
wick says: '
Working under my direction, Mr. Scott
MacNutt has recently been able to confirm
this surprising theorem, and even to estab
lish It as conservative. We have also gone
further than Mazen and discovered what
the other causes are from which deaths are
thus avoided; and, although they are not
yet all published, I may say that conspicu
ous among these "other causes" are pneu
monia, pulmonary tuberculosis, bronchitis
and Infant mortality.
Prof. Sedgwick uses- the filtration
plant at Pittsburg as an illustration.
The record shows that the installation
of this plant has saved 100 deaths from
typhoid fever and at least 200 more
from other contingent causes. The
importance of a pure water supply Is
being Impressed upon the people every
where and with it the necessity of con
sidering environment and general con
ditions In their relation to the general
health. This new awakening is caus
ing special attention to be paid to san
itation In factories, the cleaning up of
pest-breed lng tenement districts and
general regulation of the systems of
sewage and garbage disposal and street
cleaning. The arousing of tre public
Interest in this public question is the
more welcome because it Is belated.
Beneath the enthusiasm and general
Inconsequential debate engendered by
the waterways convention at Chicago
lies a purpose deep . enough and
broad .' enough to concern the en
tire country. The movement for
a more general utilization of the nat
ural facilities for transportation af
forded by the navigable streams of the
United States is taking on a concrete
form. It is a demand of the steadily
Increasing commerce of the country
that some more extensive use be made
of the great rivers of the United
States. No country In the world Is so
favored naturally, but of late years no
country has made so little use of Its
natural advantages in this regard as
has the United States. The railroads
drove the steamboats out of business,
not because the railroads furnished
transportation more desirable as re
gards certainty, but because the rail
roads had all the advantage as to
celerity. The rapid development of
the country back from the rivers was
also a strong point In favor of the rail
roads, but the time has come when
he railroads cannot properly take t are
of all the business that depends upon
them, and the slower, cheaper method
of moving the bulkier commodities of
trade Is again called for.
In Chicago great stress was laid
upon the construction of a deep water
canal that will connect Lake Michigan
lth the Mississippi river and the Im
provement of the Mississippi so as to
permit cf deep-draught vessels moving
without hindrance between the Gulf of
Mexico and the lakes. This is, of
course, a very desirable feature of tlu
general program, but It would seem to
be wise to provide for the Improve
ment of existing water courses before
entering upon extensive construction
or artitU'lul ways. The difficulty that
has stood in the path of improvement
of the water courses of the United
States for a long time has been the
failure of the champions of "the cause
to agree upon a program, Whenever
the advocates of waterway transporta
tion will concentrate upon a definite
line of action, results will certainly fol
low. Tho letting of a contract for an-
other wing of the Omaha High school
must bring home to the older residents
of the city In a very forcible way the
thought of Its recent great growth.
Men who are still young and active in
the local business world were Omaha
High school students In the days when
the old building on the hill was new
and was thought to be sufficient for
all demands for many years to come.
The development of the Omaha schools
has been a large part of the growth of
the city, and one of its chief sources
of local pride Is the fact that the pub
lic schools have not been permitted at
any time to lag behind in the general
progress of the community.
Alaska has been busy for several
years sending an annual gold contribu
tion several times as large as tho
original purchase price of the territory,
but now conies to the front with a
promise, made through the geological
survey, of having another resource
that Is of more value than all of tho
yellow metal washed from the frozen
creek beds in the Klondike or sifted
from the beaches at Nome. According
to the latest report of the government
officials al4 of those estimates showing
that the coal supply of the nation will
be exhausted within the next century
or so may be torn up and used for
starting the furnace fires. Alaska has
coal to burn. An expert of the geo
logical survey has just made a report,
the result of several years' Investiga
tion, In which he offers the following
cheering assurance:
The mineral coal In the ground In Alaska
has not yet been definitely estimated, and,
whatever estimates are made, for some
years to come will doubtless be subject
to wide expansion as further geological ex
plorations are carried forward, but It Is
proper to say that the coal resources of
the territory are very great, and that they
will bo figured In hundreds of millions and
even billions of tons.
"Billions of tons of coal" has a
warming sound and the geological sur
vey reports Indicate that the estimate
of the coal deposits In that country
have not been exaggerated. The ex
plored and known coal area of Alaska
already is approximately 12,000
square miles. Practically one-fourth
of the Alaska country has not been ex
plored. Should that area develop coal
fields the worry over fuel for the fu
ture, might be postponed for centuries.
The investigations that have been
made of the Alaskan coal deposits have
been confined to the coast and show
that coal exists along the entire coast.
from one end of the country to the
other. The coal ranges from low
grade lignite to the best of anthracite
and bituminous, equal to any found
in the Pennsylvania and West Vir
ginia coal fields. Enough has already
been learned of. the extent of these de
posits to warrant the government ex
perts in assuring the country that
Alaska can supply the nation's wants
for fuel for generations to come, even
if no additional coal areas are dis
The foot hall warrior is now coming
in for his little brief time upon the
stage, but nothing that he can do will
ever place him on a par with the base
ball man, who is going into winter
quarters. A nation Is largely meas
ured by tho character of Its games,
and the healthy and vigorous outdoor
pastimes that attract the attention of
Its youngsters are a certain index to
Its character. The game of base ball
is strenuous, calling for the very best
of the men who participate in It. It
requires a clear brain, steady nerves ,
and strong muscles, and that it is so
thoroughly understood and so gen
erally played by Americans Is an Indi
cation of the general nature of the na
tion. The devotion given to base ball
la. but an example of the earnestness
with which the American has taken up
all problems of life, and of the energy
that has placed this country far in ad
vance of any the world has ever
In four base ball leagues this year
National, American, Western and
Southern the last game of the
schedule was necessary to determine
the pennant, and in no league an extra
game had to be played before the
champlorshlp could be awarded the
first such Instance since the National's
organization in 1876.
The season of 1908 goes down In
history as the greatest of all years.
Something like $17,000,000 was paid
at tho gates of the hundreds of parks
over the country. Attendances of 10,
000 became common and those of 30,
000 were registered several times.
What does It all mean? One thing Is
that the American people have a great
national sport in whose fairness and
cleanness they place the most Implicit
confidence. Were there the slightest
suspicion that base ball aa played and
carried on today under the direction
of the National commission was not
"on the square" conditions would bo
very different. The patronage given
the game Is all the testimony Its gen
uineness requires. Base ball possesses
an indefinable magic that Is unique.
The charge of commercialism has been
made against this country, yet not even
the most strenuous struggles for com
mercial advantage will half compare
with the effort men ard women often
exert to see a single pame of ball. At
midnight Thursday, the day the Cubs
beat the Giants for the National league
penuant, a passing by the
main entrance to the Detroit park
found a lone man hanging arounl the
gate. When he demanded to know
what the man was there for at that
time of night he got the reply, "I am
here to get the first grandstand Beat
to the game Saturday." What other
pursuit of pleasure or business Is there
that will drag men from their beds at
midnight and hold them in lonely vigil
through hours of darkness and day?
And what Is that charm In base ball
that so enslaves men's passions! No
matter what; nobody can explain It,
but everybody who knows the game
Is heartily glad It Is there and hopes
its magic will never wane. Long live
the greatest of all games..
New York and Chicago theatrical
managers are announcing a , near-famine
in chorus girls and shrewd man
agers and their press agents are keep
ing the public Informed as to the sup
ply and demand of available front row
beauty with as much accuracy as sta
ple stocks are quoted each day by the
ticker and in the published market re
ports. We doubt If the general pub
lic becomes very much perturbed over
the reported shortage, while a goodly
portion of the theater-going populace,
particularly In the west, will bo dis
posed to wish that chorus girls, at
least of the kind usually sent on tour
ing trips, were even scarcer.
Theatrical managers have only
themselves to blame for the shortage
of the chorus girl crop, or rather for a
demand that has increased out of all
proportion with the supply. Year by
year the producing managers have
been turning their attention and en
ergies to musical comedies, burlesque
and spectacular affairs, ousting the
legitimate drama from its place, and
thus creating an unusual and abnormal
demand for chorus girls. Even an or
dinary or garden variety of musical
comedy these days has to be backed
up with a bevy of pretty girls and the
supply Is far short of the demand.
"Show girls" are needed by the hun
dreds and by the thousands. They may
not be able to sing well enough to war
rant the use of the word "chorus" In
referring to them, but youth and
beauty and figure make up for vocal
The famine in the chorus Is not due
to any lack of pretty American girls.
That is one crop that never fails In
this country. It Is due, doubtless, to
the larger growth of common Bense
among American girls and the knowl
edge that the Illusions, which form the
chief charm of the stage to the audi
ence, does not linger after the curtain
has fallen. The American girls are
learning that the chorus girl has no
life of unalloyed pleasure, but that, If
she does her work conscientiously and
well, the long hours, the broken rest
and other hardships are not compen
sated by the weekly wage she receives.
There will always be plenty of hand
some girls, ready to try their luck on
the stage, but the famine In competent
chorus girls is easily explained.
There's a famine In competent help In
every line of activity, In the real as
well as the mimic affairs of life.
Experts at the Department of Agri
culture have been at work again and
the result Is an Interesting, if some
what technical, dissertation on cheeses,
how they are made, what they are
made of and all the details connected
with the business.- The experts an
nounce, in an introductory note, that
there are 229 known varieties of cheese
and that no two of these are at all
alike except that they have milk in
some form as the basis. Milk Is the
foundation of all cheeses, but the su
perstructure may be made of anything
from sage to soapstone, depending
upon the whim of the cheese builder
and the taste of the consumer.
Cheese making Is one of the oldest
arts, or trades, or habits, under which
ever classification. It was an article
of diet back in the hazy times of his
tory and has never lost out with chan
ging fashions. It is found In the plains
of South America, on the shores of the
Mediterranean, In the passes of the
Alps, on the banks of the Rhine and
the Rhone, on the Bteppes of Siberia,
In the cottages of the peasants, in the
palaces of princes and on lunch coun
ters of the civilized and seml-clvillzed
world. Age does not wither nor cus
tom stale the infinite variety of cheese.
There are cheeses in existence and
growing stronger every day that are
older, than any existing government.
One particular cheese Is mentioned as
being over 200 years old and reflecting
great credit on the family that pos
sesses it. Over in Switzerland they
have a pleasant custom of making a
cheese at the birth of a child and eat
ing it at his funeral feast, or at the
funeral of his son or grandson.
According to the government bulle
tin cheese can be made from milk and
anything else that Is handy around the
house. Rennet, extract of thistle
blooms, wlthanla berries, acetic acid
and other agencies are used for cur
dling purposes. It Is made of skimmed
milk, cream, buttermilk, reindeer milk,
goat milk and any old combination
with a milk basis. It is made hard or
soft; it is made In cakes as small aa
your thumb and it comes in packages
as big as a grindstone. It is sun
cured, smoke cured, cured In garrets,
cellars, stone quarries, In trees or in
caves; It Is wrapped in bark, in fine
linen, In oiled sklnB; It is made with
whisky flavor, with sage filling, with
eggs, butter, sugar, sail, cinnamon,
nuts or anything else that may please
the palate.
The reports of the experts raises an
interesting question as to what actios
the inspectors of the pure food w will
take when it conies to examining
cheese? From the formulas set forth
in the pamphlet under discussion it Is
difficult to Imagine how they would go
about to adulterate a cheese.
