HOULD not Oregon provide
refuge for her white plague
nf ferers?-Th tcocnerrwas
recommended a few. days ago. by a
tuberculosis congress of distinguished
physicians from all parts of the coun
try, many of them specialists In this
disease. The need for' state-owned
and municipally-owned sanatoria.
where latest methods in sanitation
and treatment could be applied, they
proclaimed as most urgent
"If a consumptive patient is treated
fronv the beginning he will get well,'
was promulgated by Hypocrates, the
father, of medicinejwho . lived .from
460 4o 377 B. C The idea then ex
pressed is the vital principle behind
the recommendation for state-owned
sanatoria.' Both Massachusetts and
New York have such establishments,
and in Pennsylvania there are a num
ber municipally owned. " In all of
them, as well as in the seventy-odd
privately-owned sanatoria of the
country, the rules during the past few
years have been the object, lessons
out of which comes the cry for more
and better establishments for treat
ment and can of consumptives.
Ninety per cent of the first stage, and
45 per cent of the advanced stage pa
tients in one big' sanatorium were
cured, while in another 99 per cent of
the first stage and 40 per cent of the
advanced stage were saved. ' The

-Without some such provisions"1 as
the congress suggests, the position of
the consumptive, now painful, will be
come more and more pathetic. The
infectious character of the disease is
coming to be more widely understood,
and' the result for, the patient is
mournful It is but recently that a
rule was adopted whereby the books

an isolation in the future for the

a sufficient cup of bitterness, the pa

to nothing; would be but a drop
where an ocean is required; so what's

Major Blerce explains he was writ

could not be found. Major Blerce waa
a friend of President McKinley, and, h

in prophecy that If such crimes aa that
against Ooebel went unpunished, then
tha assassin's bullet would strike-hish-er
up. Twenty months later th proph
ecy waa fulfilled and McKinley . was
killed. '

for Today
was ih gift of a life. it was a Ufa
that left no legacy of money or lands,
no title nor honors, no books nor. im
plements; but it - left . Itself, It has
blessed th world a nq other, because "
unstintedly It gave to 'men thought,
compassion, time, love, Joy ahd confi
dence; it gave out Itself, and a men
received a larger life.. -
This kind of giving alone meets our
need and solves many of our problems. ',
Some men scatter dollars snd wonder
why discontent still asserts Itself. You
might glv your last oent and leav in
dustrial and social peace a far off as .
ever.' Money cannot bridge - these
chasms; but sympathy, thoughtfulness,
personal Intereat in-others, tb things
within, will. X,lf must meat with life
I and flow together In mutual self-giving.
Her the poor may glv aa much aa
the rich; the weak often aa much a
the strong. Her there ean b neither ,
condescension nor ostentation In ' tb
giving.. Here the giver Is enriched as
well as th receiver. H Whoever opens
his heart ' to another expands its pos-
slbllltles for himself. .He who first
learns to give his time and thought to ' .
Others will know when snd bow to glv
his possessions.
It may be those who most 'need your
time, your heart who ar most hungry
for . these things within, are not after
all, the poor and th outcast; they may
b within your very walls. How good
is Thanksgiving If but thN father will
it by tn haarthald long enough, care
free enough, to satisfy th wistful eyea
of th children, to whom, la life's press, .
(he msy hav become aa a locked door.
Open that door for at least a whil thla
day. .
In such tru giving man becomes Ilk
God. If all llf b but th emanation ot V

every benefit w hav I but th self -giving
of th Most. High, whil th best
knowledge w . hav of , him : eome

" From the St. Paul Dispatch. ' '
James J. Hill talked to the business
men of Chicago Saturday evening on
tha subject of reciprocal trad with
Canada.- He brought to the. topic all
thar fund of fact for th gathering and '
marshaling of which he haa exceptional
ability. For the many year. the Dis
patch haa protested sgainst the cold
shoulder that waa turned to- Canadi
yeafs ago when she came asking for
reciprocal trad arrangements.. It would
go farther and sea that, line of whit
posts that siretche along th border
and marka the line where trad must
atop or take on a heavy tax burden 1
th price of crossing wholly removed.
And it believes that some day. not far
distant they will come down.
Th Dispatch therefor welcome th.
aaslstanc which Mr. Hill, .with his
prominence and great influence,, can
bring to th movement whether it b
for th partial lowering of th bar or
thlr entlr taking down. - The moment
la especially timely because thls-month
