Experls Diner on Question and
on Value of Radium.
OVERDOSE KILLED BREMHER?
Cornell Professor of Pathology Thinks
So, but Believes In Efficacy of tho
Mlnoral--Statisticlan Declares Thoss
Reported Cured by It Never Really
Had Dread Disease.
Spenkeni who appeared before tho
American Society For tho Control of
Cancer In New York differed widely
oh to the prevalence of the disease nnd
nlso as to the olllcncy of radium treat
ment for It. Tho meeting wns called
to start a movement to ncnunlut tho
public with tho dangers of cancer and
especially With tho danger of allowing
Hmnll cancerous growths to become
malignant nnd deep seated before ap
plying for operation.
Frederick L. Hoffman, statistician,
who has made a specialty of collect
ing information about cancer, asserted
that 75,000 adult persons died from
the disease last year In the United
States alone, while 500,000 persons
died from it In civilized countries. lie
will Umt cancer wns essentially n ills
oase of civilization and wns pinctlcally
unknown among primitive people nnd
Dr. James Kwing, professor of pn
llinlogy of tho Conu-fl university inedl
al chool, disputed Mr. Hon'mwi's as
sertion. ITe said that cancer wns not
only prevalent throughout the wholo
human race, but that, far from being
a disease of civilization, It was prev
alent In practically all lower animals
Mid was oven found among trout and
.oilflsh, which died from It In great
Disputes Cures With Radium.
In discussing radium cures for can-.-or
Mr. Hoffman said that a cnreful
study of hundreds of reported cures
had convinced him that the patients
affected were really not suffering from
Mincer. He denied Hint any cure lintf
been elfected by any means other than
the surgeon's knife.
With this Dr. Ilwlng disagreed nlso.
Ho said that cancerous growths bad
been cured by nullum when they wero
local and when they hail been treated'
before the poisonous toxins from the
growth had spread through the wholo
body. The limit of radium treatment,
lie said, was confined to a depth ot an
Inch and a half or two Inches, ns that
was the extent of tho penetrating pow
er of radium rays beneath the skin,
lie said that new ways were constant
ly being discovered to apply radium so
that Its curative power would be ex
tended to even tho most malignant
forms of the disease.
, In response to iiiestlons asked him
rtfter he bad cm, eluded his address l)r
! Kwing expressed the opinion that a
eery large overdose of nullum had been
administered to Itepresentatlve S.
i Breinnor of New Jersey and that Mr.
' ISromncr's death was no doubt hasten-
ed by this too extensive application.
He pointed out that the correct dosage
for radium had not bei determined
dellnltely nnd that much uxperlment
Ing must be done In this direction.
"The deaths from this disease." said
Mr. Hoft'inan. "have practically dou
bled In the last forty years. The death
rate Increases at the rate of f per cent
every decade. Statistics which I have
gathered concerning tho disease prove
that no doctor operating for cancer
wan ever Infected by It and that no
person ever Inherited It or passed It an
an Infection to any other person.
"Cancerous cells are treacherous for
tho reason that they have no nerve
stimulation connected with them. You
do not feel an pain as a cancerous
irrowtli starts and to gain no warning.
The rich are alllicfed more than the
poor. All persons are liable to bo at
tacked after they reach maturity. Most
often the ills-ease appears after the vic
tim has reached mi ngo of forty years
"In Kngland they eat. five or sis
meals u day mid so constantly Irritate
the xtoiniu-h. If may be that this has
something to do with starting cancer
ous growths, as KiikIIsIi people suffer
Urges Study of Localities.
"In Madison county. N. Y., cancer
has attained the highest level In the
United States as a cause of deaths.
Wo do not know why this Is so, but I
wish some special study could bo tin
ilurtuken to find out. There lire other
small localities where the number of
Mincer putlpntu Is especially large.
Study of thotio localities mlglrt give tw
much moro Unlit tlmn seeking In lab

FARM WAGES STIlT HIGHER.

The wages of farm lnbor Increased
about 2.5 per cent last year and about
11 per cent In the last four years.
Since 1002 the Increase baa been about
30 per cent. The estimates aro based
upon reports of correspondents of the

Knows So Much Then He Wants to
Guide the Young Aright.
In n recent address to students nt thn
law school of the University of Min
nesota former President Tuft declared
that n man at sixty was at the very
zenith of his ability.
"When a mnn Is sixty," he said, "ho
Is able to recognize the defects which
have come to him through luck of
self restraint and self sacrltlce. We
know so much at sixty we think we
ought to rush In and ntd the young
men nnd women lo avoid the same pit
falls." JUST A BOY'S IUEA.
It Made the Invention of the Reaping
Machine a Success. '
In 1S30 Obed Hussey of Ohio wns In
venting n reaping machine, the first j
erer designed in this country. Ills ,
chief dllllculty was the cutting device,
which was three large sickles set In a
framo n."d revolviil so ns to cut Into 1

A young foii, wiitehlng (he expert
