A report just made by the National
Aasoeistlon for th Study and Pre
vention ot Tuberculosis come aa a
bright ray of light amid th general
gloom that has surrounded th eon
sensiionisu of late "While la nearly
all other hrenoes ot th effort to
are, morallx. qr fuUertally, diaap
polntment has sj far rewarded onder-
taking, those goodpeople who bare
devoted themselves to propaganda
against ths great whit plague In the
United Statea, find thsmselves pos
sessed ot such a showing as la most
encouraging. S ..v.'. '. 'v
It la suted on ths authority of tbs
association named tbat ht th decade
from 1901 to lllo th death rat
from tuberculosis - la the - United
Stats declined from, it-9 per 10V
600 persons living to 10. Z, a de
crease of 1S.7 per sent, wane tn
general death rat deollned but half
aa fast, or 1.7 per cent The figures
can b a little better understood
when expressed In alight different
terms. They mesa that the - great
total of 17,000 lives ar now---an
nually saved that formerly, fell to th
reaper who earn "fit consumption's
ghastly form.". . - ': - . .
This Is not a triumoh of faith.
but a victory for common sense. At
the time the work of overcoming the
ravages ot tuberculosis" ambtig ths
people was undertaken. It was looked
upon sa visionary, especially becsuas
scientific men wer not agreed as to
th xaet origin ot th disease and its
method of communication. While th
Bebat want on, devoted Individuals
pressed forward the apread of cer
tain rules for living that must be
beneficial, no matter what conclusion
may eventually be reached In regard
to some of th mor abstruse fac
tors la the case. Common eenss in
preparation ot food, of ears for chil
dren, and particularly babies, of
hygiene tor all, waa the keynote of
the crusade, and Its answsr to ths
world Is tbat 27,000 Uvea are now
saved that at another time were use
lessly sacrificed. This result surely
is th most encouraging that could
b hoped for, and th day will yet
com when th whit plague will
hav disappeared.

Us people,
This was said ot the Danish ruler
at bis death. It takes a bit man to
be th kind of a king that Frederick
was, a man bigger than brilliance or
grains. Th Creator hss sot en
dowed many of th king of th arth
with th glittering spark' of genius,
perhspa becsos It too often only

Is needed. "Sound, common sense"

th sturdy people over whom Fred
erick sxsrclsed powsr than brilliance
and "slmpls,.dsmocratla habits," bet
ter than austere, autocratic manners.
Possibly frederick might hav
mad a good king even It h had
been a brilliant man, but not without
hie other qualities. Democratic sim
plicity and .common, sens usually
count tor mor In king or peasant
So, this tribute to Frederick may
offer encouragement to th millions
of other men who ar not brilliant

Athletios and Citiienthip.
Cyras H. lfcCormlck's I2S.000 gift
to Princeton's champion . foot ball
team may hav been Influenced
partly by th fact that Mr. McCor
mlckaaaa S ton at that university
who plays foot ball, but it signifies
th premium big men are today
placing upon th vain and Im
portance of stblstlc In ducatloa.
A speaker la Omaha during the
week went so far as to say thst if
we ar going to have clean citlxen
shlp la th future,' we must hav
dean sports aad athletic today. That
might hav excited ridicule a decade
ago. Not so now. Our colleges and
onlvsrstUes and even graded schools
recognise., this principle la making
athletics a part ot their eurrieulums.
First, they See 'the Importance of
strong bodies to tlert minds. Ths
germs of srviMoing do not ordinarily
lodg easily ta ths boy with a whole
some, well-developed physique;' aad,
ot course, th germs of physical dis
ease do aoc l. . ' '
But this, important as It Is, Is only
a part ot ths system. Ths strenuous
rivalries aad oompeatloaa of toot
ball, has ball, boxing. ' wrestling,
running aad jumping ar calculated
to bring oat and develop the best
there Is In the ybnth. They should
first ot all develop' th mnscles, then
they shonld teach th necessary lee
son of self-restraint under difficulty,
self -to eatery against odds, cool-head-dness,
th ability to think quickly
aad accurately and think and execute
at the same time. Life' eompaU
Uous ar mors fierte oftea than thoae
encountered am c gridiron; or a dia
mond, or a met. Kicking ths ball
over the goal aad pinning aa oppo
nent's ahoarder te th floor do not
cease with fradastloa from, a school
or eolleg..! Tber are higher goals
and box skillful tackles, suyngar
grapplera and harder mate outside
than inside educational fields.
Athletics, to be successful of their
purpose, must, be clean and must
teach men to be clean. A good maxim
baa been laid down, that it la better
to lose on the square than to win
unfairly. And It take a much better
sport to lose than tt doe to win. The
young man who 1 earns how to play
fairly and squarely and bow to loss
courageously,' even though he loss
more contests than he wins, la the
young man who haa got the best
his athletic training had to give htm.
That la one point of articulation be
tween clean sports snd citlxenshlp.
Fires and Inioranct. '
Th most frultfnl. cause of spon
taneous combustion," says Fire Mar
shal Doyle ot Illlnols,"ls the friction
between a big policy of Insurance and
a small stock of good?." ' And hs
sdded thst this cause kaows no race
distinction. Moreover, he adjured ths
insurance men who heard . him that
they could not escape their due Share
of th responsibility.. In no other
business Is ordinary 'prudence so
recklessly disregarded, according to
this expert Incompetent -or- careless
men are sent sbroad with bandies of
promissory notes In their hands, to
mak over to th first lndivldusl they
meet with; the loss, which Is almost
Inevitable, la met by th community.
For th loss entailed by a fir is
total,' Th owner of building or
good destroyed ta personally reim
bursed from a fund collected from
ths general public by tha Insurance
companies, - but the wealth de
stroyed la never replaced. .
Aside .from his message . to the
general public, which la pregnant
with Unpreaslv truths, but little ap
preciated, Mr. Doyle's1 argument ap
plies most directly to the Insurance
companies. Thla paper pointed out
many years ago that th "moral has-
ard" ot a firs risk is fostered by ths
carelessness or Incompetency of the
Insurance men themselves. Stricter
Inspection ot risks, cjoser supervision
o agents, and a mor rigid regulation
In all regards by th Insurance com
panies of dealings with thalr patrons
will go very far toward tha 'awaken
ing of th public to lta responsibility
ta the matter of the present tremen
dous fir wast. Th first steps must
b taken by th companies, though,
for th sssy-golng American people
will not seriously consider th "moral
hasard" pass ot the question until
th Insurants concerns divest thsm
selves' entirely ot their shars of ths
risk that Is a menses to all. J
Antot and Religion.

Ot all the somber lessons thst
