COLORADO SPRINGS. Colo., Aug. 30.-A
talkative crowd met Colonel Roosevelt here
a hie train stopped on the way to Pueblo.
No sooner did ha make his appearance on
the rear platform than they began calling
to him. -,
"Me can coma back,!', shluted a husky
"You bet he can come back," responded
another On the other aide of the crowd.
Colonel Roosevelt at nee proceeded with
a brief address.
"It Is a very great pleasure," he said,
"to ba back In Colorado and particularly

Loiei Nothing in Companion with
EAGLES RETURN FROM ST. LOUIS
Hard Tim for tha Ancient City to
Raise the Money for Entertain
ment Women Treated
Better In Omaha.
"St Louis Is a great big city, with a
magnificent accumulation of wealth and
extensive business," said Charles Segelke,
an old Omaha boy, now located at Colum
bus. "But In preparing for the recent
meeting of the grand aerie of the Eagles,
to which I was a delegate, St. Louts tell
far short of Omaha's record last year. In
tha Missouri town they undertook to raise
$11,000 to entertain the delegates and pay
tha expenses of the meeting. At the
wind-up, tha day before the convention
met, the committee was still tu.000 shy, and
tha report leaked out that Adolphua Busch
came to tha rescue, In a spirit of civic
pride, with a personal check for the G,000.
Of course, I don't know that he did, but
that was the generally accepted fact In 6t
"Now, I understand the Omaha committee
last year raised subscriptions to the amount
of $22,000 or over to entertain the grand
aerie, and gave back one-third in cash to
tha subscribers. So you see Omaha people
bave soma causa to boast that no other
city can surpass It when It comes to doing
things like thla In a big way."
Nels Allabaugh, of Douglas, Wyo., also
a delegate to St. Louis, bears out what
Mr. Segelke says about tha subscription
matter, and ha also asserts that the enter
tainment given the delegates in Omaha
was better than in St. Louis.
Through some fluke, even the women
were not taken care of as they should have
been In St. Louis," said Mr. Allabaugh.
"Tha women's committee was all - right,
and trleJ to do tha handsome thing, but the
general committee had apparently over
looked the need fof placing some cash at
their disposal for lunches and Incidentals
of that kind. Omaha loses nothing at all
by' 'comparison with other cities In these
matters, and emphasize that aa hard as

Bacilli of Loathsome Disease Grown
Outside Human Body by
WASHINGTON, Aug. HO.-Leprosy, the
unconquercd scourge. of the ages. Is making
what is believed to be Its last stand against
science. From Molokal, the Coral Island
prison for the plague-stricken In tha Ha
waiian group, a few words have been
flashed half way, around tha world to
Washington telling of an achievement ac
counted second .only to the discovery of tha
lepra bacillus by Hansen in. 1879.
Three surgeons of the United State Pub
llo Health and Marine hospital service,
after months of unremitting toll, have
grown lepra bacilli in pure culture outside
tha human body and . In tiny thin glass
tubes In the laboratory the loathsome germs
are now growing In their third generation.
Four times tha scientists have taken the
infection from the body of a leper and arti
ficially propagated the bacillus on beef
broth, egg, or tha amoeba of tha Intestines
of a guinea pig. The work of Dr. Mosea
T. Clegg, who declared less than. .a year
ago at Manila that ho had found that the
bacillus could be .cultivated outside the
human body, Is verified and extended.
Clegg has been rushed from the Manila
sclentlflo station to Molokal to assist in
the experiments. t
Dr.JDonald H. Currie, director of the sta
tion, Dr. Walter R. Brinkerhoff and Dr.
II. T. Hollmann are. the men who have
grown the cultures. . After four months'
careful work In which they had labored to
grow tha lepra bacillus in tha amoeba of
pond water, guinea pig intestines and other
low forms of animal life, they were about
to give up, defeated.
Some of tha tubes containing the speci
mens were about to be destroyed when one
of the men determined to make a last in
spection of the cultures in a forlorn hope.
To his astonishment he . found the germ
living. The discovery spurred tha Investi
gators to new effort, and back over the
blazed trail they had covered so often they
worked again. . , ........
Clegg had found that , by feeding tha
bacillus of cholera to the amoeba the lepra
bacillus did better. That was supplemented
by gelatine, beef extract .and eggs, and
within three weeks the searchers were re
warded agan with living germ. Currie ob
tained a pure culture, which means he has
eliminated tha amoeba and tha cholera
bacillus and now has the lepra bacillus
