I am satislied that with the construction

"At the mouth of the Coqullle River
there is a south Jetty, and the work of
constructing a north jetty Is now In prog

on the bar at high ,tlde, and the channol

however, required inside the river, as It Is
impossible for ladon soa craft to navigate

MINNEAPOLIS. Oct 31. Mayor Jones
announced today that In future all the
saloons and hotel bars must be closed on
eunaay. iney have not closed for years,
and the announcement causes the great-
et consternation among the liquor trade.
The newspapers announce
that all the prominent physi
cians of New York have re
ceived a circular from the
New York Post Graduate
Hospital giving an account
of the wonderful cures of con
sumption through the use of
the juice ot raw vegetables
and fruits. It seems that the
treatment began by the use
of potatoes, onions, beets,
turnips, cabbages and celery.
Later there were added sweet
potatoes, apples, pineapples,
carrots and parsnips, and still
later rhubarb, summer squash,
tomatoes, spinach, radishes,
string beans and green peas
in the pod.
It would seem to be absurd
on its face that such treat
ment could be used to effectu
ally combat consumption, yet
so high an authority as Dr.
Russell of the above-named
hospital, who seems to have
made the discovery and de
veloped the treatment, states
that eleven cases of well-developed
losis have been absolutely
cured while fifty others are
under treatment and progress
It is to be hoped that the
long looked for cure of this
dread disease has at last been
found in this treatment, but
the medical profession will,
doubtless, be sceptical, as they
are and should be on all new
treatments until more than
eleven cases have been cured
by a combination of simple
vegetable juices that contain
little, if anv, of the nourish
ment required by the con
sumptive. As Dr. Russell
says he has been the principle
advocate of nutrition as op
posed to medicine in the
treatment of tuberculosis, he
seems to contravert his own
theory in the use of these
vegetable juices that posess
such a small percentage of
Hygiene and nutrition of
the best sort "are absolute re
quisites in the treatment of
consumption. If the laws of
health are carefully observed
and the body is sustained
with nutritious, wholesome,
easily digested food, the rav
ages of the disease may be
arrested, even when the lung
tissue is involved. There is
little question that the best
nutrition in the world in such
cases is the old and much
abused cod liver oil; not in
its raw state but in the form
best adapted for its immediate
absorption into the bodv, as
f ouncf in Scott?s Emulsion of
pure Norwegian cod liver oil
which contains, in addition,
the valuable hypophosphites
of lime and soda and glycer
ine. We hesitate to say that
it will cure consumption, but
after thirty years experience
with it, the medical profession
knows that it will arrest the
progress of the disease and in
its earlier stages generally ef
fect a permanent cure. So
certain are we of this that
we challenge a comparative
clinical test in any hospital or
sanitarium where there are pa
tients afflicted with this mal
ady. If it will not cure more
cases of consumption, if the
same rules are observed, than
the vegetable and fruit juice
treatment, we will agree to
supply the institution making
the test with bcott s Emulsion
free for a year. There is no
doubt that Scott s Emulsion
is the most concentrated form
of nutrition in existence, and
if consumption can be cured
at all it will do it.
