For The Courier.
The tendency of the human body is
toward health. From many of the ills
that affects a man be recovers spontane
ously. This is illustrated by the re
covery of many daily from colds, indi
gestion and other minor acute and occa
sionally more eevere ailments. When a
spontaneous recovery occurs in a pa
tient on whom have been used certain
measures supposed to be useful in heal
ing the particular malady with which
he is afflicted, it is natural that the re
covery should be ascribed to the potion
or prayer which has been used. The
fact remains, however, that the recov
ery was spontaneous and would have
occurred if no such effort had been
made. In a dim way people recognize
this fact, so they occasionally rebel
against medical treatment. But because
they cannot entirely get away from the
thought that something must be done
when a person is sick, they become de
votees of faith healing in 6ome form or
other. This is a mistake it is exchang
ing one extreme for the other. None
are more apt to resort to faith healing
and totally to abjure medicine in everv
form than those who formerly sent for
the physician upon every pretext, both
when he was not needed and when he
wps. As is usual in such cases, when
this pendulum comes to rest, it will be
found not at either side, but between
the two extremes; there truth lieB.
There are men who have devoted their
lives to acquiring a knowledge of the
human body and the behavior of its
parts in health and in disease. These
men are physicians. They- recognize
certain factors at work in producing
disease and know certain other factors
that can be depended upon to assist
nature in arresting disease processes or
in promoting recovery after the disease
has been checked. Only to such a man,
who thoroughly understands the body,
can safely be entrusted the matter of
deciding how far any disease process
has perverted the normal functions or
to what extent the natural forces can be
depended upon to secure recovery.
Even then it is not strange that he
sometimes makes mistakes a man
with a finite mind dealing as he is with
a human body which only its Creator
fully comprehends. The personal equa
tion, as one of our great writers has
aid, renders "experience fallacious and
The simple fact, however, that the
average human life is being lengthened,
the suffering and the pain that attend
the beginning or the ending of a human
life havabeen reduced, and our personal
and municipal comfort have been bo
greatly increased, are enough to warrant
all the efforts that are being put forth
to convert the treatment of the sick
into an exact science. Only by scientific
men can this be dono and only by rea
sonable methods can this be accom
plished. Cure of disease by any system
which would become established must
be not merely coincident with or subse
quent to the means put forth it must
be obviously the result.
That Street Car Conversation.
Fragmentary reports of a recent con
versation to which a few neighbors and
myself were parties do me a great injus
tice, seeming to rank me among sympa
thizers with anarchy. Nothing could
be more absurd. No man alive abomi
nates anarchy in every form more heart
ily than I; perhaps few have done more
with arm b or pen to repress anarchy. I
myself have nothing to keep back, but
as parts of the conversation referred to
might be thought to compromise the
other parties I will not detail it without
permission. Suffice it to say that all
urged opposition to anarchy. I as
earnestly as the rest, only our methods
I respectfully request you to give this
statement such publicity as you can.

Chief Hennessy, what made you
suspect that some one bad recently

Detective Well, sir, in the dust on

A boarding-house trust in Ann Ar
bor, Michigan, is the latest labor union
on record. The idea, which is a really
clever -one, is that all the boarding
houses shall furnish the same kind of
food on the same days in the week.
