This, scene is said to be one of the most
sensational ever introduced into a melo

MAYOR ON WARPATH
Mayor Stoddard, has his war paint on
and states that he is going to stay with
this smallpox case to a finish. He states
that he is a victim of circumstances and
that he has acted under the " advice of
physicians at every move and yesterday
afternoon under the authority of his office
and as an interested party to the suit
which had been filed against him he de-
his physician Dr. Molitor, City physician
Dr. Biesers and the Chairman of the
committee on Health, Dr. Richardson, call
and diagnose the case to determine what
it was, who he states pronounced the
disease which his children have been
afflicted with smallpox, and this is the
first time thai he was informed that the
case was smallpox. He is anxious to
have the case come to trial but will ask
that it be postponed until such time as
the quarantine is raised and he can secure
I still believe in the doctrine of publicity.
I ordered the investigation before any
action wae brought against me for viola'
Hon of the quarantine law. 1 am glad a
complaint has been filed so that a thoro
investigation can be had. I would have
demanded consideratioupof this question
of email pox by the council, had not the
suit been filed. The proposition - of the
marshal quaranting the mayor so that he,
the marshal, could not be arrested in the
Dick Kelly case, was taken as it was in
tended, as a joke, but the statement made
by the mayor, that he, being the chief
officer of the city, would not allow the
quarantine, has been taken literaliy and in
earnest, when it was also intended as a
joke. J. B. Stoddard.
RESULTS WILL FOLLOW
This city Is somewhat worked up over
the quarantine conditions since the war
rant for the arrest of Mayor Stoddard
has been Issued, and since Mayor Stod
dard has signified hie intention to fight
the complaint, there is no question but a
great deal of good will come out of it, in
asmuch as the public will possibly learn
how the quarantine laws of the city are
being enforced and the part that physic
ians have in such matters. Whatever
the results of this case may be, the filial
results will be that in the future quaran
tine will mean something. 1
The following is the section of ordin
ance No, 21$ under wliich the complaint
Section 4 No person or persons hav
ing any contagious disease or attending
upon or otherwise coming in contact with
any person or persons afflicted with any
contagious disease in such manner or to
such an" extent as to render him or her
liable to communicate the disease to an
other, shall go upon any public street or
highway, in said city, or in any way min
gle with people not afflicted with the dis
ease, provided that the provision of this
section shall not apply to attending physi
cians who . have changed clothing tnd
thoroughly disinfected themselves.

"RERVtV AS OSTEOPATHIC SPECIALTY
That the trouble known as "nerves"
receives entirely too little attention from
its victims is beyond question. It is not
only a warning sign that there is some
thing radically wrong, but, as the nerves
are the governors of the whole being, it
is the plainest sort of indication that the
suffeier is not in the full completeness of
his or her natural competency for the
affairs of life. A condition of calm under
ordinary cond.tions is absolutely neces
sary in order that there may be a re
serve force of nervous energy for emergencies.
There are always definite reasons for
the-troube; and, even when habits of life
are largely responsible as aggraving
causes, tnere is always some anatomically
wrong condition that predisposes the suf-
teror to the trouble. If the body struc
ture is in a state of perfect adjustment,
if circulation to every part is unobstruct
ed, if every nerve is uninterfered with in
its work bv pressure, and if nourishment
and hygiene are attended to "nerves'
will speedily disappear. The Osteopath
is the only specialist in detailed body ad
iuatment and he . is the master of t he
craft. Right of Way.
