Now, why not blow your
self off to an annual sub
scription to this paper?
The Work the State health Depart
ment is Doing.
That the State aid extended to
tnoerculous sufferers through thf
Department of Health dispensaries
is reaching the really needy is evi
denced by careful statistics that
Health Commissioner Dixou has
These statistics which are based
upon a total of 9,363 patients ex
amined at the dispensaries, of
whom 6,728 were found to have
tuberculosis, drriug a period of
seventeen months ending Decem
ber 31, 190S, show that the aver
age family income in the homes
from which these patients came
was $24 63 per mouth. The aver
age number of persons in the fami
ly was 4.3S and the average per
capita income $5.60.
"These facts are particularly
gratifying" said Dr. Dixon.
"With the thousands of tubercu
lous patients whom we asked to
help it is quite possible that occa
sionally the State's charity is im
posed upon. We are fully justi
fied, however, by. the tabulated rec
ords in drawing the conclusion
that the really needy poor among
Pennsylvania's unfortunate victims
of tuberculosis are the ones that
are being helped, just as the law
making the appropriation contem
plated". An interesting study of the pos
sible source of infection can be
made from the dispensary statis
tics. In 2,404 cases, there was
reason to believe that the disease
was contracted in the home from
another member of the family.
This shows how important is the
work which the visiting nurses of
the dispensaries are doing in teach
ing the members of the household
how to guard against being infect
ed bv one of the family who has
In 474 cases the possible source
of infection was a fellow employee.
Fully alive to the danger from this
source the State Department of
Health has communicated direct
with all the large employers of la
bor throughout the State, urging
the necessity of frequent medical
inspection and calling attention to
he State's dispensaries where sus
pected cases among the poor will
be examined at any time free.

I EVKRc.RKKN TREKS IX BAD COX-1'ITION.
Specimens of twigs and bark of
evergreen trees supposed to have
been damaged bv scale insects, were
received from Washington County.
Pennsylvania, at the Division of Zo
ology of the Department of Agri
culture, Harrisburg, with .inquest
for information as to the cause of
their impaired condition. One of
t' e specimens was from a tree that
appeared to be diseased when it
was planted some twenty years ago,
according to the correspondent,
who stated that '"it has never done
Professor II. A. Surface, the
Economic Zoologist cf the State, in
reporting upon the specimens,
wrote as fol'ows:
"I have received the twigs Mid
bark of your evergreen trees, which
you sent to me, and must confers
that I can not find my insects pres
ent, and the subject of plant dis
eases belongs to the specialist
known as a plant pathologist. For
tha" reason I would advise you to
send some of the supposed diseased
bark and twigs to Professor N. 13.
Wake, U. S. Plant Pathologist,
Department of Agriculture, Wash
ington, D. C. Also, if you wish,
vou might send some twigs to Pro
fessor Hugh Baker, Forester, State
"It appears to me that the tops
of your trees are too dense, or, per
haps they are too much shaded. I
would advise cultivating the ground
about them, and opening out the
tops by a little pruning. Some
fertilizer containing phosphoric ac
id and potash, such as would be
obtained is phosphate rock and
wood ashes, should be mixed with
the soil around the roots. If the
specialists in plant diseases, to whom
you write and submit specimens,
have different directions to give
you, I would recommend you to
follow their directions rather than
mine. However, in the absence of
any directions from them, I am
sure that what I here give yon will
not prove injurious, but, on the
other hand, will be helpful."
Will Bore Bradford for Oil.
Representative coal men in Lu
zerne county and Lackawanna, are
willing to spend all the money nec
essary to make a thorough test of
the Bradford county field for oil or
gas, and the work is to begin early
in the spring. At least, this is the
story tcld by the man who has
gathered a big bunch of leases in
Asylum township. He says he is
coming back, and will punch the
township full of hole and settle for
all time the oil question in that lo
cality. Since the South Branch dusters
were drilled last year the territory
has been frequently visited by men
in red automobiles. They are said
to have been much impressed with
the outlook. Fred W. Worthing
ton, who produced dusters in the
latter field with good Pittburg mon
ey, is also coming back to go 011
with the work necessary in order
to hold his leases, and the result
will be that if Bradford county has
any oil it will have to show it dur
ing the coming year.

There is more Catarrh in this sec
tion of the country than all other
diseases put together, and until the
last few years was supposed to be
:ncurable. For a great many years
loctors pronounced it a local dis
ease and prescribed local remedies,
and by constantly failing to cure
vith local treatment, pronounced
it incurable. Science has proven
catarrh to be a constitutional dis
ease and therefore requires consti
tutional treatment. Hall's Ca
tarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on the
narket. It is taken internally in
loses from 10 drops to a teaspoon
ful. .It acts directly on the blood
