able to a degree undreamed of a few years
ago. There yet lingers In the lap of truth
the lie that strong drink end consumption
III off the undesirable cltlsens who have
ess than the normal resisting power of the
Occasionally a medical back number Is
discovered In the act of admitting Into
general hospital for treatment a case
of this communicable disease called con
sumption. It makes mighty little differ
ence to the victim of consumption where
e is nut: so lone as he Is not given a
permanent Immunity batlt tn outside air.
Any other plun of handling hlra Is simply
nother way around to the graveyard.
The writer has lived In a family that
was decimated by this white plague of
clvtlUatlon. He has been the ' medical
adviser of other families and prescribed
bath tube of ood liver oil. No wonder the
course of consumption In such cases was
as typical as the course of true love.
Just now we have the medical eye on a
family that la making a gallant struggle
against sure death. The family consists
of father and mother, and three daugh
The parents are healthy people. One of
the daughters contracted consumption In
the publlo schools. Soms Intelligent peo
pie still doubt the possibility of such a
development coming out of the womb of
the American educational system. They
Insist It Is an Indictment against the pub
llo sohool system to whisper that kind of
charge. What oomea to pass If those
who speak so, speak by the card?
Every human unit needs a certain amount
of breathing space. Education la a com
pulsory process. And It Is deservedly so:
but the sohool house Is ths magnet which
attracts children from contaminated homes
Just as powerfully as from thoss whero
sanitation and hygiene do their perfect
work. Make a child a common carrier of
consumption and hs Is condemned to a
lifetime . of disability. In the course of
time he may graduate from the local high
sohool and pass on to one of the state
stltutfom for higher education. His case
of consumption makes him a human bot
tie of poison. The Idea that he has a
hermetically sealed stopper In the bot
tle excepting when he coughs
spits and sweats la exploded. Every In
dividual who comes Into his environment
will be exposed to contamination by breath
ng the air which has passed through his
lungs, and been charged with the first
oause of consumption. One of the daugh

year In a Montana state Institution and
then came home to die of consumption. She

Infected; and capable of reproducing the
disease In the body of the next occupant.
This Is the naked truth unless the state
attended promptly and rigidly to powerful
fumigation. The second daughter went to
sn Institution In the Mississippi valley to
finish her education. At the end of the
first year she suddenly found her mouth
full of blood after the exertion of run

If her medical adviser understands the
nature of the disease she may yet be re

Quarantine at Pender.
PENDER, Neb., June . To the editor
of The Bee: I should like to have you
publish tbe following in answer to the
one sent you from here as published In
the Saturday Bee, June 26, In regard to
smallpox In Pender:
The Bell Telephone people had smallpox
having ona of the severest cases during
this epidemic and had been under quaran
tine thirty-five days from ths time
was first Instituted. On Thursday, June
24, they called me In, asking when they
could be released. As there were some
scales still on the person of one of them
I told them that I thought they should re
main In quarantine until the last of the
week. Saturday 26, or until the first of
the following week, at which time
thought we could release them. For some
unaccountable reason ths physician, Dr.
Buls, who had been attending them,
called up the State Board of Health by
telephone, and they told him to take down
the quarantine. This was done by the
state board without consulting the local
board of health In any way. Our board
of health ordered the quarantine card
again put up. which was done by the
marshal, who is a member of the board,
whereupon Dr. Buls tore down the card,
tearing up the card and throwing It into
the street. We again put up another card,
which he again tore down, tearing it Into
pieces and throwing it into the street
Our board of health then called up the
State Board of Health and asked htm
why It was that they were Interferln
with the action of our board of health In
an epidemic of smt-llpox that we liad for
sometime been trying to stamp out. He
stated that what he had done was
Ignorance of any trouble and that th
state Inspector, Mr. Wilson, would come
snd adjust the same. He came on Frl
j day, June 26. and stated In a public meet
1 Ing well represented by cltirens of Pender
that the local board of health were Justi
fied In continuing this quarantine as they
had done, and recommended, as it was the
last of the week, that after the local board
had properly fumigated the place and dis
infected the patients the quarantine could
be raised. Friday night the place was dis
infected and Saturday the card was taken

The first of several special trains of
Elks passing through Omaha enroute to
the annual convention of the brotherhood
t Ixs Angeles arrived In Omaha over the
Milwaukee at :40 Wednesday morning.
The train was chartered by the Tonkers
(N. T.) lodge, and hsd on board members
of the Elks lodges In Buffalo, Rochester,
Albany, Syracuse, New York, Brooklyn and
other cities of New Tork state. There
were in all over 100 persons on the train,
which was composed of seven Pullmans
and a dining car.
A stop of three hours was made In
Omaha, the local order of the Elks fur
nishing entertainment for the visitors while
they were here. Some took automobile
rides about the city, but most of them
spent the three hours it. visiting the Elks'
headquarters and In seeing the downtown
district of Omaha.
Nearly all the lodges represented on the
special train were on record as favoring
Oarry Herrmann, the Cincinnati base ball
magnate, for the office of grand exalted
ruler. Only one or two of the lodgee had
D. Curtis Qano, delegate from the
Rochester lodge No. 24, said nearly all the

the delegates on this train. It la my opin

candidate for the position of exalted ruler,
Is a flno fellow. He Is a personal friend of
mine and I would like to see htm get the

strong organization and It will take a
great movement to beat him.
I believe Detroit will get the conven

small for actual experimental work. The
balloon has a capacity of 20.000 cubla feet,
but with the engine, propeller, skele'ton car

capacity to permit much successful work

action, while conducive to an enlarged as
kessment roll, is not legal.
Mr. Shriver lias been diligent In his ac
tivity to assex such property and has had
deputies out on scouting tours.

GOO new houses built since April 1, some
of them completed and some not," said
Mr. Bhrlver. "It would be unfair not to
assess these houses and let people live in
them without paying a tax on vthe prop
