Expert Tests Indicate Few Typhoid Cases Blood Analysis of Seventy-Five Pa tienta Show Only. Eighteen Af ' fected with Typhoid Germs. .Seventy-flve per cent of the casea of Ulnass In Omaha reported as typhoid fever are not that ailment at all, but are sim ply intestinal disorder, accompanied by fever of much less severity, according to Dr. Langfeidt, tho city bacteriologist. Of seventy-five cases of Illness, reported aii typhoid , fever the physician found only eighteen showing traces of typhoid bacilli The remaining casos showed fever to ac company the Illness, but there was trace whatever of typhoid germs. ..W The report of tb city bacteriologist made following actual blood tests of pa Uents supposedly suffering from typhoid fever. No' blame, however, Is attached by the health department to physicians regarding reports: In the early stages symptoms are the same and real typhoid cases do not assume a dangerous aspect until the fourth or fifth day. i. Most of the cases where there is a marked, fever are believed to be a sort of intestinal grip, not particularly dangerous, but still needing careful attention. Although It is advisable to boil city drinking water In order to avoid Intestinal trouble and possible Infection from typhoid germs, expert tests show the water to be improved within the last few days.

This an nouncement and Invitation, as usual, goes to every high school In the state.

Last year a new plan was tried, of hav ing two different classes of declamations. One was known as. the "general jlaas," In which there was, no limitation as to subject, and the other was known as the 'oratorical class," (n Which It was recom mended that the selections be taken from the great masterpieces of oratory. This latter kind of declamation naturally ap peals mors to the young men. The new plan gave suoh ' good satisfaction last year that It will be permanently continued.

There has been always discrimination In favor of the men' members of the profession. Take another instance. It Is a well recognised principle that the supervisor should be paid a higher Salary than the person supervised by 'him. Yet In New York's remarkable schedule of salaries the maximum salary of an Assistant to princi pal, ir a woman, is 11,000, though she supervises male teachers who receive as high as f3,Iflt and even 12,000. Again, to be principal one must have had at least ten years of experience, must have passed an examination, which records prove to be very difficult, and must have waited often as long as four years for appointment from an eligible llpt. Suppos ing a most unusual case that a woman becomes a principal In her twelfth year of service, her salary of $1,7110 aa such, Is $306 less than that of a. male teacher, also In his twelfth year of service, who-may be teaching a "baby class," and Is $650 letss than that of a male teacher of a graduat ing class. Her maximum salary, of $2,500 Is only $100 more than that of a male teacher who may have a small class of girls In the graduating class, while she may have ths responsibility of a school of 8.000 pupils and the supervision of sixty teachers. A male principal of the Identical school would receive $1,000 a year more than the woman. UNIVERSITY OP MICHIGAN. Results of Physical Examlnntloa of Fresh men C lass. Dr. George A.

"It strikes me that It Is better to have a boy whipped than to let him go straight to the devil." said United States Commis sioner of Education Brown, quoted by the Chicago Inter i Ocean, In discussing the question of corporal punishment as a dis ciplinary measure In schools. Ha added, however, that'the doubt of tho accom plishment of the desired end In checking a downward career by this means In any particular case and the many evils ac companying this form of punishment seemed to he Causing Its gradual elimina tion. 7 4 When ' his attention was called to tha fact that the Baltimore school author! ties had under consideration tho question of reviving this corrective means In the schools of that city Mr. Brown expressed tha belief that It Is preferable to whip a boy it It will turn his course from evil. Continuing, he said: "There are cases undoubtedly where a loving sort of whipping has shunted a boy off the downward track, but It Is pretty hard to tall in any given case whether tt will have that effect or not, and there are so many ' evils attending that form of punishment that . It seems to be slowly dying out in this country." The ' cruelties which accompanied the whipping of children In tha schools In the past were disappearing, he said, and re sort to i that means of punishment was gradually being diminished.

Statistics of the Board of Health show that more than 33 per cent of the pupils In the- upper grades of the elementary schools suffer from ocular defects, and that this percentage Increases from ' grade to grade through the. schools. The conclusion is that auch marked increase in defects of vision is caused by the amount of close work required by the present curriculum, both In the schoolroom and at home. With a view to putting In practice the essential rules for the preservation of good eyesight, the women principals suggest that a label with the following reminders printed on.

"Always hold your head up when you read. "Hold your book fourteen Inches from your face. "Never read In a dim or flickering light, "Never read with the sun shining di rectly on your book. "Don't face the light In reading, but have It .come from behind or over your left shoulder. ' "Avoid books or papers printed Indis tinctly or in Bmall type. "Rest your eyes every few moments by looking sway from the book. "Bathe your eyes night and morning with pure water." KANSA8 - CITY, ' Mo..

"I do not remember the exact words," answered Mr. Paxton, "but Miss Anna Houlehan told ma that just before Chris man Swope hdd gone Into convulsions Dr. Hyde had given her a capsulo to admin ister to him. She gave the capsule and a few minutes later Chrlsman Swops went Into convulsions." , The. story of the stormy seen In tha Swope homestead oh December 18, that day when , the nurses threatened to leave if Dr. Hyde was not dismissed and another physician obtained, to cars for the 111 mem bers of the family, - was detailed by . Mr. Paxton. He told of the vagus susuplolonn of the nurses, which eventually led tip t the open break' between them and Mrs. Logan H. Swope.,' It appeared 'that Mien Houlehan was the leader In the Insurrec tion. Just before - leaving she turned to Mrs. ,8wope, according to Mr. Paxton, and said:,-. . . - ' ' '. "People are being murdered In this house." . ,; '. . ., The departure of Dr. Hyde and his wif.i from , the home followed ' amid a tearful scene.' . Accusation were made regarding the physician. His wife. In the house of her mother, stood firmly by him. aa he Was turned away from her parental doors. ' Letter to Flemlnst. Much time was passed early today In questioning Mr. Paxton regarding a letter he wrote to Stewart S. Fleming, on of the Swope heirs,, telling him -of tho mystery. It was upon this .letter thst, Dr. Hydo brought his suit. "Whom did you mean when you aald In that letter that the murderer of Colonel Swop should be brought to justio?" waa asked Mr. Paxton. "I 'meant Dr. Hyde," he replied. Lawyers clashed frequently during ths taking of the deposition. Mr. Paxton may be called again Monday to give additional testimony. : , .- . -, ' ..- . - 'Jury Ben-Ins Work Monday.
