Tne Press In its issuo of Sept.
fltli culled iittcntion lo the fact
that tlioro were AW clnltlron In
Sun Angelo entitled to school
privileges with no room In our
ovor-crowdod school und in the
issuo of Sept. 20 suggested that
tlioro should bo at least two now
school houses built one across
the nvor and one in the western
part of the city. When repre-
sentative men lileo County At-
torney Allen are willing to per
sunnily contribute $50 toward
building school houses and in an
inierviow ho again signified his
willingness to contribute the $50
as in Soptombor it simply shows
that something should be done
and like the man who said about
his wife "Sal ihas foil into the
well and something must be
done and durnod quick too."
San Angclo can novor do too
iauch for bur children! aud in
affording an opportunity for ov-
ary child within its precincts an
opportunity of obtaining u good
common school education. Sun
Anyolo lias always beou noted
for its interest In all mat tors of
ftducutiou its churches and its
happy homes and it is nothing
more than an ovorsight and
growth more rapid and greater
than was anliciputcd by our rop
resentativo citizens when our
present sysUitn'was established
in other words wo have outgrown
our school building and must
have more house for tho childron
Tho School Untitling Vlaltori.
Tho Press lias realized that
our school buildings aro entirely
inadequate to accommodate the
children of San Angolo und it is
no credit to our peoplo that this
ovor-crowdoc' condition is allow
ed to continue to exist. Thoro
should bo something done in this
matter to raiso tho necessary
funds to furnish sufficient room
for litllo childron to breathe
wholesome air und givo thorn
comfortable seats and right
hero it doos not look right for
Tom Green County which is tho
mother of so many adjoining
counties to be eo poor that she
cannot furnish all of her childron
ii comfortable seat in u school
After being appointed on tho
committoo from tho San Angelo
District Medical Socioty in com-
pany with Kobert L. Greone. the
secrotary wo concluded to visit

.courtesy of Prof. Abbott wo

Now right here it will bo well
to state that it is poor economy
to start our childron in tho edu-
cational line since it is becom-
ing a recognized fact now days
that tho moroyou know tho more
it will benolit you in any calling
or occupation in life. Tho agri

of Dr. Koch tho eminent Berlin
specialist that hnman tubercu

tant and thorough experiment

Dr- Goorgo D. Barney is con
ducting tho tests.
Dr. Barnoy the prime mover
in the matter like many other
physicians rofusod to accept us
woll founded . Dr. Koch's state
ment made bofore the Interna
tional Tuberculosis Congress in
London last August. Dr. Koch
claimed that tubercular bacilli
of the cow could not inocculute
a human boing contrary to the
accepted medical viow of such
conditions. Dr. Barney said.
"If Dr. Koch's statement be
truo just considor how much
money has beon wasted overy
day. I understuud that New
York has already spent two mil
lion dollars in the destruction of
cattlo afflicted with tuberculosis.
Immediately after I heard Dr.
Koch's theory I determined to
test its soundness as I am con-
vinced it is wrong.
"Solecting a cow and taking
groat care that sho should be in
tbo bost condition of health we
liavo concluded to inoculate the

bacilli. This oxperimont will

The October meeting of the
San Angelo Distiict Medicul

house on Tuesday evening Oct.

and A. J. Marberry C.T Cooper
S C Parsons Boyd Cornick.

T W Connorly. W. W Wooaaid
and J O. Tolhver of Eldorado
In .spite of its being a very
disuggroublo night overy mom
ber scorned greatly interested
and all were etithusiusUo over
the future of the society. Let

all of whom desired to uflilliuto
with the San Angelo District
Medical Society and be elected
to full membership and dosired
the necessary information to
fulfil the same. Dr. C. II. Mur
phy of Christoval who applied
for membership was upon vole
unanimously elected and Dr. J.
O Tollivor. of Eldorado who
was present stated he would ap
ply prior to tho noxt meeting.
Consequently it is plainly evi-
dent that the society will be one
of influence and its opinions
will carry considerable weight.
Dr. T. W. Connorly read a
very interesting a? well as va)
uable paper on the physician's
duty in contugious diseases aud
among other things said "While
we are on the threshold of our
fall und winter sickness with
perhaps many cases of conla
gious diseases to be treated wo
might consider these questions
with a hope of being bettor pro
pared to meet Scarlet Fever
Diphtheria Measles or Small
Pox and see that all such cases
are isolated until all danger of
communicating the disease has
passed and children should not
be permitted to attend school or
other public places or mix pro
tnist'uously with other people
while the danger of contagion
exists. Too mauy child rou are
disposed to allow their conva-
lescing children to go whore
they please just as soon as the
child feels woll. And if both
parents and physician will do
their duty we will bo able to a
great extent to curtail tho
spread of epidemics und conta
gious discuses. At the termina-
tion of overy case all clothing
bedding towels napkins and
tho house should be thoroughly

expect a widespread epidemic

with Louisiana for a center
show for the present year up to
Sept. 1. 10087 reported cases
against 71385 cases for the same

mercial relations extend. It is

ble was said on the importance
of vaccination and tho necessity
of having all school childron suc-
cessfully vaccinated; also tho
over-crowded condition of out
school buildings which finally
resulted in tho society taking
a stand upon the present unsani-
tary '""idition duo to over-crowding.
Tho present school build-
iugs wore considered by tho so-
ciety as a menace to health and
especially favoring dissem urina-
tion of all contagious diseases.

wonderful medicine 'Favorite Prescrip-

(tlox 33) "Durlnp the first month of
pregnancy I could not keep anything
on my stomach Was so sick that I
had to go to bed and star for weeks. I
tried different doctors but with little
benefit. I read about many being- helped
by using your medicine so I thought I
would give It a trial. I began to take
your ' Pavorite Prescription ' in Novem-
ber and I htd a nice little baby girl in
February following. My baby weighed
over eight pounds. I was only in hard
labor about one hour and got along
nicely during confinement ; was up and
dressed on the eighth day. I never had
the doctor with tne at all. My friends
thought that I was nick a very short
time. I think Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription U indeed a true mother's
