RIGHT TO KILL DISEASED CATTLE
Owners of cattle in applying to the courts in
Chicago for an injunction to restrain the federal
inspectors from carrying out the order of Secretary ,
Huston to kill >:>4 tine cattle infected with the
hoof and mouth disease ut the Chicago Dairy Show,
have taken a decisive step in opposing the quaran- 1
tine precautions that are being taken, not only by
the federai but also by state governments, to pre-
M-r\e the health of beef and other animals. This
wstep indicates that the owners of beef may be plan- ;
thug a widespread protest against the killing of
Doubtless t hose beef owners who are opposing 1
the necessary safeguards to the health of the ani- !
luals. which amount directly to safeguards to the '
public health, will advance arguments which on the
fa i' of them will appeal to many persons as strong
ones why the animals should not be killed. It is
likely they will appeal to the public pocketbook, j
point to tiie fact that meat prices arc very high. ,
that the European war is likely to make them j
higher and that the killing of great numbers of
cattle through quarantine precautions will reduce
by that much the available food supply and tend
to force the cost of meats even higher.
While arguments of that type may appeal with
force to the food consumer who is struggling under
the high cost of living, the methods that the federal
and state officials have been taking to suppress the
disease should meet with the approval of all fair
minded citizens and such citizens should lend their
moral support to the public officials in this work.
The killing of the diseased animals to prevent the
further spread of the disease is the only effective
means of accomplishing the very necessary end at
which the authorities aim and it must go on regard
less of opposition of onttle owners.
It is gratifying to the people- of Pennsylvania |
thi:t Hie State Veterinarian Board is taking so ag- j
gressive a stand to wipe out the cattle disease in |
this state, lhat board should be sustained in the
work it is doing. It is exceedingly unfortunate >
that the plague among cattle should have appeared '
at this time wheu scarcity or alleged scarcity of
meat is making the cost so high to consumers, but
the authorities are only to be commended for adopt
ing the measures that they are adopting in this '
and other states for suppressing a disease the rav- .
ages of which ultima a tely would reduce the supply j
jf meat to a far greater extent than the killing of
diseased animals is now doing.
It may be remarked in passing that it is just to
he beef owners in Pennsylvania that the State re
munerates them for all cattle killed.
A WAR THAT SAVES LIVES
An army of medical men of the United States
government is righting the plague in the Philip
pines. winning victories which are really glorious.
There has been no defeat in that warfare except for .
the forces of disease, desolation and death. The
battles have resulted not in the rilling of hospitals,
but in the Emptying of them; not in the loss of
human life, but in the preservation of it. A worthy j
The medical officers in Manila recently fought
an outbreak of cholera backward and backward
until they had stormed its sources and at those
sources they did their most effective work. They
might merely have taken sanitary precautions, :

investigations and begin making discoveries.

I tsnce was that many altogether healthy persons
! were spreading gerins of the dreaded disease. It
has long been known that persons who have never
had typhoid fever and are in good health in every
respect, have carried the fever to other persons,
and the medical officers have now found that the
germs of cholera can be transmitted in the same
way by persons who are in perfect health.
Great difficulty has been experienced in bringing
the carriers to light. Thorough examinations of
individuals have been made in the Philippines and
of tive thousand persons on whom tests have been
made 1(15 have been found to be carriers of cholera,
likely to communicate to others unknowingly the
germs which they had concealed. Carriers of the
disease are retained by the officers in all cases until
a serum can be injected which quickly disposes of

have not been concerned about the advance of med

accomplishments would do well to divert their at
tention occasionally from the works of destruction
in Europe to the works of preservation such as are
at present under way in the Philippines.
There is great satisfaction to be had from the
fact that lives are being saved on the one little spot
on the other half of the globe over which the Star

before the other the history of his life.

like many other young men, I fell in with bad companions
and began to gamble. I

Applause in the Tabernacle
Professor Spooner, who runs the
singing end of the Stough meetings, is
a good-looking, good natured chap, and
he certaiuly does like to get results
when ho starts after a thing. On Suu
day afternoon, when the big audience
of men was crowded into the talier
; nacle, Spooner called on the choir and
I orchestra to render a very beautiful
i hymn, which was given with a vim that
i was inspiring. Not a particle of ap
plause followed. Spooner looked out
I over the audience and said sarcastic
"Well, don't'you like that? You
don't seem to appreciate tlyit. Not a
i bit of applause, me tell you that
| appreciative applause is all that these
people get for their efforts. Now, let's
I hear what you can do in that direc

Almost Raised the Roof
About half of the audience applaud

'"What's the matter with you fel
! lows? You sit there like a lot of lum
ber-jacks with splinters in your fingers
—afraid to clap your hands. We'll
sing that third verse, and if you don't
do better, there will not be any more
Then the third verse was given and
the entire audience gave such applause
as almost raised the roof.
'"That's something like it.'' said
Spouer. his face beaming with pleasure.
Later on he asked the entire audience
to join in singing that grand old song,
"Beautiful City of Zion," and the way
they sang it made the ministers on the
platform shout "Amen!" with a vim.
"That's pretty good," said Spoon
er. "Some of you fellows haven't heard
that song since you heard your good
old mothers sing it. Your memories are
waking up. Now. 1 'm going to ask you
;o join in the chorus of another song
'He Loves Me.' It is to the tune of
'Old Black Joe,' and you all know it.
Every fellow join in."
And every fellow did join in, making
the welkin ring, for every fellow know
the tune, even if he had to supply his
Ten Thousand Mouths Whistle
"That's pretty good." said Spooner.
"1 knew you could do it. Now, lei's
all whistle the song and chorus —choir,
audience and orchestra. Those musici
ans who are piaying flutes or horns
needn't whistle." and he laughed at his
own joke: "everybody, now. whistle.
Let 'er go!"
And ten thousand mouths were puck
ered up and the beautiful Stephen 0.
Foster melody was rendered as never
before in HairUburg. Spooner enjoyed
it to the end, joining in the whistling
and waving his arms to keep the time,
and when they had fiuished, a new idea
"Kven the ladies joined in that," he;
exclaimed, and then, suddenly, "mebbej
you think these ladies can 't pucker up
and whistle. We 'll show you. Now,
ladies, let's whistle the chorus, and all
of you men keep quiet and give the la-1
dies a chance. All together now."
And there floated through tlic big
room a concord of sweet sound that was
entrancing. It was the ladies whistling
"Ol i Joe.
And the men didn't forget to ap
plaud, ioud and long.

Rehearsing in Public
"Why is it," asked the man. "that
actors are continually doing something
in public to attract attention? I can't
understand it. The other evening I
was sitting in a cafe enjoying my din
ner. and at the table adjoining were a
party of theatrical people, evidently
the star aud the staress. They were
discussing a play they were to take part
in that evening, and they were doing
it so loudly as to attract the attention
of everybody in the room. In fact we
knew the entire play before thev had
finished their public rehearsal. The star
was conveying to the staress his idea
of the stage business that should ac
company the dialogue and his gestures
were wild and emphatic, while his re
marks were such as afforded amusement
to those who beard. Here is one of the
things that happened. 'Now,' said the
star, 'when I come down the stage and
look ovah me shouldah and say 'Bah!' '
just like that, you will look surprised
and take three steps around the table,
and say in your most distressing voiee
'You greet me with Bah! How could
you?" Say it slowly, oh, so very slowly,
and I bow my head in mv hands, just
like this, and he bowed. And that was
the way it went until the imaginary
curtain went down. I tell you, it was
most edifying, but why do they do it
