While sitting in *i station waiting
for a train a day or two ago 1 over-
heard a conversation between two
citizens, one of them evidently be-
ing a doctor. They were discussing
the difference of the attitude of the
government relative, to animals and
humanity as applied to appropria-
tions for the conservation of health
and life. 1 (>an not recall the figures
the doctor used, but he spoke of the
large sum of money appropriated for
the prevention of hog cholera and
other animal diseases, while in Texas
there are a large number of cases
of pellagra, and not a single dollar
is appropriated to find the cause and
the euro of this awful disease. If
we had tlie time to look tip facts
and figures on these matters, and
could give the into you, there would
be astonishment, I am sure, Why the
difference? Do our legislators be-
lieve animal life is more important
than human life? Certainly they do
not. Then what is the trouble? We
are not able to answer this question,
but it should be the duty of every
voter to try to find out, and, while
nfit asking the legislature to lessen
their vigilance in tlieir effort to con-
serve animal life, urge them to put
more effort and strength into laws
to conserve human life, which is tlie
most valuable of all assets.—Cle-

Hoes Thufldcr Sour Your Milk?
It is no trick at all to keep milk
sweet in cold weather. It may stay
in the sun for half a day in Decem-
ber without any great damage, but
in June and July it must bo handled
carefully. Whether the milk or
cream is intended for the table, the
creamery, or the milk market, it
must be sweet if it is to bring the
i best price.
To keep milk sweet just two simple
I things must be very carefully looked
[after. It must be cooled completely,
iand as quickly after milking as pos-
jsible; and absolute cleanliness of
I pails, cans and cows must be ob-
j served. If this is done, thunder
storms no longer will sour the milk.
The warm, damp weather which we
have just before thunder storms really
I does not cause milk to sour if it has
|not been cared for properly.
| This souring takes place because
little invisible plants called bacteria
get into it in dirt, or by lurkiug in
I the corners and seams of poorly
cleaned pails and cans. The remedy
J is plain. Keep the bacteria out by
[ABIES In dogs is confined to no month or reason of the year. Every
dog called mad Is by no means always rabic. Sometime ago a
little house dog ran out 6f a department store frothing at the
I mouth. This spectacle occasioned a small sized riot, Until the
lady who owned the dog Issued forth, tucked him under her arm, ex-
plained to the terrified crowd that Fido had been eating a cream puff
and scornfully motored away. Dogs will have convulsions in hot weather
from the heat only, and many a good natured dog will be worried into
depravity. A homeltss starved, mongrel, by reason of the heat, the dust,
the files, the devil's wagon he has to dodge, and the kicks he must
endure, may in natural self-defense bite some one. Then, beaten off and
(currying through the streets, he leads a yelling mob of boys and men;
and that is the way a "mad dog scare" gets started. Yet auch a dog may
not be hydrophobic, though the chances are he is likely to be. For the
multitudes of curs In great cities are constantly mingling and snarling
among themselves; and thus many dogs may get the disease rabies, from
the bite of one really rabid dog. Even a flne breeS of dog may be In
danger. For instance; a stray dog one day bit on the nose a high bred
setter that had poked out its nose between the pickets of the run of the
kennel where he was confined. This wounded setter was then guarded,
solated and watched; and in due course It developed true rabies; and
when near Its end was killed to stop Its sufferings. However, for some
days this dog was to every appearance perfectly healthy; and under
ordinary circumstances the bite on Its nose might easily have been over-
looked or forgotten. Suppose nobody had seen how It bad been bitten,
nor had «my knowledge of such a bite; then precautions would not have
een aken, and human life might have been cruelly endangered In the
circumstances. The best thing to do Is never to take any chances with a
dog bite, especially in the face.

THE WEIR MITCHELL REST
C. A. Ij. writes: You recommend
tho Weir Mltchcll Rest Cure for a
Shoddy Nervous System. I would
like to know about It and where It
Is to bo found?
Answer: I must have given a
w.ong impression, as to most cases
anyway, I think that tho best treat-
ment for most cases of the shoddy
nervous system is what X should call
the Get Up and Hustle Cure. In
some cases of men and women whose
nervous systems are very much run
down indeed the Weir Mitchell Rest
Cure Is very appropriate. This treat-
ment requires a masterful physician,
and a nurse who knows her business
and means to be in control of her
case. It Is best carried on in an in-
stitution for nervous people, because
the interference of sympathetic rel-
atives and friends would nullify In
the home all the good the rest could
afford. There are many details to
this treatment Its principal fea-
tures are the restoration of the vital-
ity of the feeble or overworked or
nervously overwrought by a com-
bination of Isolation from friends,
absolute and enforced rest In bed
from four tc sis weeks, and exces-
sive or forced feeding, together with
the thorough use of massage and
clcntrlcity. The cases best suited for
this treatment are those In which an
enfeebled condition has resulted
from an Infectious disease (such an
pneumonia), cases of chronic dys-
pepsia, of malarial poisoning, spinal
Irritation, neurasthenia and the like.

The Bangs Enterprise editor Is in
line for trouble; or If not trouble,
then certainly some expense. In a
recent issue of the Temple Telegram
appeared an editorial announcing the
receipt of a great biff box of fancy
Elberta peaches with the compli-
ments of Editor Aiton. Now Mr.
Alton can't afford to discriminate
between the editor of the Telegram
and the editor of the Bulletin,
and unless we receive shortly a box
identical with that one sent the Tel-
egram editor, then we shall—well the
punishment will be equal with the
offense. The esteemed Bangs editor's
troubles will be then just beginning,
for other editors will see what he has
or has not done for the Bulletin
editor in the way of sending peaches,
and they will demand similar recog-
nition. It looks to us very much like
the Bangs newspaper man has made
a mistake—but we are open to con-
viction on the subject.—Brownwood
No discrimination at all, Bro. Bul-
letin. You live close enough to
Bangs that you can at least get a
whiff of the splendid aroma given
t»ff by our magnificent Elbertas, and
if you are too mean or too lazy to

ought to have to do without. On
the other hand, our friends of the
Telegram force, and especially the
Texas staff poet, we felt sure needed
something extra nice to revive them
after the strenuous efforts in tho
great fly and other campaigns they
have just passed through. Anyway,
we are willing to fill up every editor

ask is time to get around.—Hangs
