Mr. Feurth was the caucus nominee
of his party for Speaker of the House.
He received 35 votes one more than
his party vote. The Republican who
cast this vote was a minister of the
Gospel, a rabid local optionistand a red
hot prohibitionist, who refused to sup
port the Republican nominee, Mr. Cox,
for the reason that he believed him to be
the nominee of the liquor interests.
State railroad commissioners repre
senting Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wiscon
sin and Michigan, at a recent meeting
in Chicago, took action toward lessen
ing the terrible record of fatalities to
trespassers on railroad rights of way.
Resolutions were adopted urging the
strict enforcement of laws against walk
ing on railroad tracks, and suggesting
that police powers be given to section
foremen to arrest unauthorized persons
found on rights of way. Upward of
three-fourths of the killed on the rail
roads are under the trespasser head
persons for whom the railroads are in
no wise responsible.
Local Astronomers are deeply in
terested in the striking coincidence of
the appearance of a huge spot on the
sun about the time of the disastrous
earthquake in southern Italy, but are
not prepared to claim connection be
tween the two phenomena further than
to assert that the same disturbing causes
operate simultaneously on the sun and
earth at certain irregular periods. The
spots now upon the sun disc appeared
to view on Monday of last week, and
will be vistbleaday or two longer. They
are believed to have been caused by vio
lent outbursts of gases from the interior,
making their way to the surface and
obscuring the sun's light. The new spot
has an approximate diameter of 30,000
miles, or nearly four times the diameter
of the earth. Its center is dark while
the outlying, portions are visibly lighter,
and it is making its way toward the
western edge of "the orb, where it will
disappear from view.
There is a scientific side to the good
roads question., No one will dispute
that fact. The Scientific American treats
the subject along that line, and its con
clusions are not far from the real truth.
It reasons along popular and common
sense lines when it says : "Every pound
of farm products brought from rural
sections to thickly populated centers has
placed upon it a fictitious value, because
it costs the farmer more to transport it
than it would cost him were the roads
in passable condition. The price of the
lamb chop that the city man eats for
breakfast is based, not upon the real
value of the lamb, but upon the cost of
bringing that lamb from the western
fields to the city man's breakfast table
The cost of the breakfast roll would be
trifling did it not cost the farmer who
grew the wheat from which the roll was
made 1.8 cents a bushel more to draw
that wheat from his farm nine miles to a
railroad station than it costs to carry a
bushel of wheat from New York to Liver
pool, a distance of 3,100 miles. The
cost of a soft-boiled egg, which is also
closely related to the American break
fast, is established by the cost of trans
porting the product of the hen to the
hotel, and not because the egg was at
all intrinsically worth what was charged
for it."
From time to time suggestions have
appeared in the local papers favoiing
the organization of a Wayne county
Historical Society. The idea is a good
one, and it is a matter for wonderment
that it was not favorably acted upon
long since. Twenty years ago there were
many Wayne county pioneers living
who could have furnished information
founded on experience and actual know
ledge, which if it ever passes into re
corded history, now or hereafter, must
be based upon hearsay and tradition.
Thanks to R. M. Stocker, the late P.
G. Goodrich and the compilers of local
histories, much of value has been put
in enduring form ; but much more might
be added through the agency ot a well-
conducted historical society. The oldest
residents of the county are dropping off
one by one, yet there are still a few
octogenarians and some who havo pass
ed the ninetieth milestone, whose mem
ories of early Beech Woods days are yet
vivid and reliable. In the nature of
things these too will 'soon have passed
away, and It the knowledge they possess
Is to be utilized, but little time remains
in which to make it available. Nearly
every county surrounding us has its his
torical society, and there can be no good
reason why Wayne should bo an excep
tlon in this respect. Perhaps u home
for such an organization could be found
in the new school building, where its
archives and historical relics could be
safely kept, with privilege of holding
annual meetings in the main auditorium.
Citizen ad'i bring roiults,
Chinese converts to Christianity re
cognize distinctions in the common faith,
albeit sects and schisms are contrary to
their national traditions. The descrip
tion of Quakers as No-wash Society,
Anglicans as Little-wash Society, and
Baptists as Largec-wash Society has, of
course, regard to the administration of
baptism in the three communities ; but
other salient points frequently form the
basis of title. Thus, to Celestial Christ
ians, Congregationalists are known as
the One-man-as-good-as-another Society,
Wesleyans as Hand-shakers in conse
quence of the custom of their social
gatherings while Presbyterians llgure
as Women-can't-speak-in-public Society.
The oldest living postmaster is out of a
job. The only wahe could be pried loose
was to discontinue the postollice. That
is what happened to George H. Cham
berlain, postmaster of Rock Falls, Wis.,
a village located a few miles west of Kau
Claire. Rural free delivery made a sep
arate oflice at that point no longer de
sirable, and the position held by Cham
berlain since 185" has been abolished.
Chamberlain isn't much of a sufferer,
financially, by the operation. The per
quisites of the place weren't more than
a few dollars a year. The postoflice was
established in 1857, and Mr. Chamber
Iain, who isnow eighty-two years of age,
had served continuously since then.
President James Buchanan appointed
him to the post, and succeeding a'dmin-
istrations never interfered with him. Al
though appointed by a Democratic Presi
dent, Mr. Chamberlain has always been
a Republican, and has voted lor every
Republican nominee, froml850 aown to
the Roosevelt-Taft era.
A Protest Against Bad Advice An
Old Practitioner Takes Issue With
the Independent.
Regarding the subject of winter cloth
ing in accord witn climatic conditions
between Mason and Dixon's line and
the Arctic Circle, the publisher of the
Wayne Independent puts forth from time
to time in articles of considerable length,
such advice as the following, which is
decidedly contrary to the teachings of
our profesnion.
'Old and young should wear open
woven linen next to skin, if they wish
to feel well and keep well. Wool is not
an absorbent and therefore does not keep
the surface of the body dry. Besides
the majority of people live in a summer
temperature in winter in their homes,
shops and stores, and thus being made
tender by heavy and very warm under
clothing, frequently take cold because
their skin is made sole and ltabuy and is
not capable of resisting the changes that
come from exposure."
"For underclothing, open wpven linen
is decidedly .the most comfortable, sani
tary and tieaitniui."
I do not hesitate to assert that such
publications as the above are both per
nicious and dangerous ; pernicious, be
cause unphilosophical and contrary to
the science of the subject, and thereby
calculated to do harm ; dangerous, be
cause the wearer of such clothing next
the skin, in the winter, season, whether
an invalid or healthy person, is not well
clad for personal comfort, nor for the
protection of the body from tho severity
of the winter weather ; and he is con
tinually losing his animal heat, which is
the prime cause of winter maladies.
What can our would-be-instructor mean,
when he says, "Wool is not an absorbent,
and therefore does not keep the surface
of the body dry." Such an idea is ab
surd ; in health, the skin is never dry
Who wishes to keep the skin dry ? Does
the wearer of linen in winter weather
keep the skin dry? If so it is deleterious
to the wearer. Physicians know the
importance of skin functions, and the
danger of its being arrested, for they are
physiologists, and know what the drying
up of the cuticle means, with its twenty
eight miles of perspiratory tubing, and
its seven millions of pores opening
through the epidermis, and discharg
ing daily two ounces of excrement!
tious matter, and not less than thirty
ounces of watery vapor. The physician
well knows, and can appreciate the re
suits from the interruption of the ex
cretion produced from the drying up of
the cuticle, through which those pores
are transmitted.
In discussing tho philosophy of the
subject it may be said, that of all4)ie
. . .... .... .
materials of winch our clothing is iHtctt
wool is the .worst conductor ot heat, an'
it being a bad conductor, makes it the
very best material for our winter under
clothing, tobe worn next the skin, from
head to foot, thereby retaining the ani
mal heat of the person, preventing its
escape into the colder atmosphere and
promoting the natural insensible per
spiration. We are thus protected from
tho winter maladies, and it is quite the
reverse of this when cotton and linen
fabrics are depended upon, The latter
are for hot weather, or for those not far
from the radiator, where the animal heat
can be spared advantageously.
Nature does the saino for the animals
of our climate, by giving them longer,
thicker, non-conducting coats in winter,
which they very appropriately cast off in
the spring to their advontogo ; but as
the human animal cast off his hairy cov
ering in his primeval state, he is obliged
to imitate the other animals, by substi
tuting wool and fur in winter, and cot
ton and linen in summer ; and the latter
for hot weather, and tho former for cold
weather, which simple statement is sus
tained by philosophy and common
sense, Octogenarian, M, D.
