TRIBUTE TO MYLES STANDISH
Monument to Noted Soldier Will Be
:... Dedicated at Duxbury, Mass.;
-Plymouth may claim imperishable
fame in the aggregate from the Ley
den pilgrims, but Duxbury, Mass., ap
propriates the individual Myles Stand
Isn, "the first soldier of New Eng
land," as all its own. For In Duxbury
the doughty; commander of the mili
tary forces of Plymouth colony made
his home, and there, it "is alleged, Is
his grave. .: -.. ' . -.--.
The glory of the town today is the.
Standish monument, some time com
pleted and yet to be dedicated to the
memory of the man . whose goodly
deeds It so grandly preserves. ,
Duxbury, or "Duxborrow," as Cap
tain Myles himself was wont to refer
to the place, intends -to dedicate the
monument on July Sit. It will be an
other Duxbury day. Distinguished or
ators will declaim the virtues of the
country's first "great white chief" In
the -Unitarian church building, a ban
quet will be served to the celebrators
at the town hall, and, of course, Cap?
tain's hill, with its imposing granite
shaft, surmounted by Kelly's statue of
Standish, will be the Mecca for all at
tendants. Trips to the top of the .col
umn will be In order and that "conse
cration day" of Aug. 17, 1871, will
be vividly recalled by the present day
"It was the late Stephen M. Allen,"
says Levi H. Cushing, a Duxbury oc
togenarian, "who was the real moving
spirit in the construction of the Stand
ish monument. He raised a large part
of the money to defray the cost, and
a goodly portion" of the latter day life
of Mr. Allen was devoted to this one
And when on : that Aug.-17, 1871,
Mr. Allen had so far progressed in his
plans that he could "consecrate" the
ground on which the proposed shaft
was to stand he had a notable gath
ering of the state's best men at the
summit of Captain's hill.. Horace
Binney Sargent was the orator of the
occasion, Justin Winsor was the poet,
and General B. F. Butler, Dr. A. A:
Miner and Dr. N. B. Shurtleff were
among the speakers.

Quacks and Con
A pathetic illustration of the way in
which the public is being decieved .by
quack cures -for consumption is found
in a letter received recently by the Na
tional Association for the Study and
Prevention of Tuberculosis.
The . letter came from a woman in
the mountains of Western Maryland,
ani v as addres el as f .Hows:
. "Will you please give this letter - to
the man. who called out trains in Jer
sey City 2 years ago last February 9th
in. the afternoon." ';
. The letter was referred by the Post
master, of Jersey City to the National
Association for the Study and Preven
tion of Tuberculosis. It reads:
"Dear Sir: "'-'.'.''' ' ' - ,, ,
"I want to find the man who cured'
himself of consumption by using Oil of
. Do you remember of a very
sick man his . wife, two children and
mother who missed connections and
had to wait all afternoon for a - train?
You told my son and myself of your
cure. ' I remember part of the direc-'
tions which -. were,take one drop - the
first day, two the second day, and so
on until it went up to thirty "drops.
Now I. want to know what to do when
the thirty drops . have, been' reached.
Does the directions say to continue the
thirty drops each day or to go back, to
one , drop? This , is what I want to
know. I will be very grateful if you
will write me the full directions, and
send me as soon as possible. Mv son
lived only six weeks after we got home.
lie am not try the . I felt he
was too near gone. . Now I have . a
daughter who is in iieed of help, and
wants to try it. - Hope you will get
this letter. But if you should not, and
it falls into the hands of anyone' who
knows of the treatment will answer
this. " I will enclose stamps for an ans
wer.- Hope i may get it soon.
Very gratefully yours," -
j. The National Association calls ' at
tention to the fact that, according to
this :. letter, one life at least has been
lost already on account of ignorance of
the .proper methods of treatment . and
prevention of tuberculosis, and another,
member of the family has been infect
ed by the carelessness of the former
consumptive. - : --'- -. ' '. ..' -..
' With the: present growth of the anti
tuberculosis movement the number of
so-called ' 'cures' for consumption is
being increased almost daily. Hundreds
of quack -'"doctors", "professors," and
"institutes" are advertising that they
can cure consumption for small amounts
with the result that thousands of dupes
are yearly cheated out of their lives as
well as their money. Besides these,
"cures"- and. medicines : of all sorts,
numbering, now several hundred, are
sold for the deception of tlfe public. -:
.. The National Association brands all
of these institutes, doctors, professors
and cures as . f rauds . and deceptions.
The only-eure for -consumption - is fresh
air, rest and wholesome food.
Kirksville (Mo.) Agronomist Trying
: r Make a Cross With Alfalfa.
: Professor Harry Laughlin of the de
partment of agriculture of the normal
school at Kirksville, Mo., is conduct
ing an ' interesting - experiment this
summer in. crossing alfalfa clover with
the old and worthless Wild clover that
grows so bountifully in some of tne
wild fields and corners -of Adair coun
ty, Mo. .-- . '
The cross is being made by grafting
some of the alfalfa buds on the wild
clover stems, and it is said by Profess
or Laughlin and the students who are
making the., experiment that a. newer
and finer species of clover is being
produced. ; They believe that the new
hybrid may become very valuable to
feeders. - v. -'-
- "It is widely known," said Professor
Laughlin. "that the wild clover has a
very, bitter leaf and Will not be eaten
by cows, or horses. We believe that
we can breed this bitterness out of
the wild clover and ' produce a new
variety that will be much hardier than
the ordinary clover and will be pecul
iarly adapted to Missouri soil and Mis
souri climate." '. ! "

. The French of the Riviera have in
vented a new game for the Coney
Islanders. - It i& the game of human
tenpins. The game is having a' great
voftue at the resorts along the Medi

summer gardens. ,
- In playing " the game the players
themselves take the place of balls aiid
knock down the pins, which are huge
wicker affairs made in the, shape of
the regulation bowling pins.
- The balls' are big wicker baskets,
capable of holding two persons, which
are sent along th(5 alley catapult fash

clined" plane and the baskets slide
down into the grouped pins and upset
them. The game , is, counted in the

dens has applied to the Inventor for
the privilege of operating , a human

who have played the game with bare

that the naked foot has a far better
grip on the turf than the foot that
