More pernicious even than the big
gambling resorts are the nickel-in-the
slot machines' which pay money
prizes. The growth of this form of
gambling has been astounding. The
wheels are whiiring in cigar stores,
saloons, hotels and restaurants.
Their buzzing sound, beard at all
hours of the day and night, recalls
the mad days -after the great fire,
"when "wheels of fortune" were spin
ning in many tents.
Hundreds of young men who
would not play at faro or roulette iu
the big gambling resorts, are be
coming fiercely addicted to the
gambling habit from playing these
The impression conveyed by the
same of the device is that it is a mild
form of gambling. That is a mis
take. A nickel seems a small matter,
but these machines have a number
of slots, the players are tempted with
the possibility of a number of prizes,
an I most of them risk from 10 cents
to 25 cents on every spin of the
wheel. As only a few seconds arc
required to drop in the nickels, press
the bar and determine the result of
the play, it is an easy matter -to part
with 50 cents within a minute.
"U&ay young men lose their entire
week's earnings within an hour, or
even less time.
These machines are particularly
pernicious because they sit in public
places whi2b young men many of
them minors may frequent and not
lose social standing or excite the
alarm of their parents or employers.
They are recruiting stations for the
big publia gambling balls. Tbey are
unlawful, and should be immediately
Answering the supposed question
of a foreigner as to how many state8
there are in the union, the Salt Lake
Tribune says: "Forty-five states and
some territories; they fill all the
.space between the two great oceans,
and at one bogle call last summer in
every one, soldiers felJ into line; the
tread of thousands was like the toll
ing of the bells of destiny, and the
flashing of their standards reflected
"back the sunlight through .one eighth
- of the sun's daily round. And they
all speak one language, all sing the
same song; all turn for inspiration to
the same flag; and though each is a
separate wave, when blended they
make but one ocean, and when in
full roar the shores of the nation are
shaken, for in majesty, in. latent
power, in unapproachable splendor,
there is no counterpart for them in
all the records of the nations that
have existed, since nations were first
organized on eartb."
Dr. O'Neil, of Philadelphia, it is
thought, has made a great discovery
in a cure for that dreaded and prev
alent disease, consumption. Con
sumption, as is showu by statistics,
destroys 102,000 American lives an.
nually. The" di.-ease - kills about
seven times as many people every
year as yellow fever ever swept out
of existence in any year. Dr. O'Neil,
at the Franklin. Institute in Phila
delphia, is showing to the medical
world that a process of light, electric
ity and ozone, applied directly and
powerfully to the patient, destroys
the germs of the disease and repairs
the waste in life. In other words,
there is produced artificially and in
intenser forms precisely those, con
ditions that in nature have been
found remedial- those that are
sought by the afflicted in mountain
resort and sanitariums in all lands
The results of the experiments at
the '.Franklin Institute 'seem clearly
to justify the hope at least that
science is presently to be armed
anew against the most deadly and
awful of all diseases.
