ated in holly and mistletoe, seven
tables being arranged for bridge. Af-

was served.

Delightful Affair.

One of the most enjoyable enter-

given the members of Christ church

4 o'clock in the Sunday school chapel
when the members of the school and

The Letter "E."

Some one has advanced the opin-
ion that the letter "E" is the most
unfortunate character in the English
alphabet because it is always out of
Cash, forever in Debt, never out of
Danger and in Hell at all times.

But we call his attention to the fact
that "E" is never in War and always
in Peace. It is the beginning of Ex-
istence, the commencement of Ease
and the end of Trouble. Without it
there would be no Heaven, no Heat,
no Life. It is the center of Hones-
ty, makes Love perfect and without it
there would be no Editors or News.

Disease May Be Contracted by Eating
the Flesh of Hogs, in Any Form,
Not Thoroughly Cooked.

Washington, Dec. 29.—There is al-
ways athe possibility that illness may
follow the eating of pork that is raw
or not thoroughly cooked. The dan-
ger is greatest at the season of the
year when many people prepare for
home consumption various food prod-
ucts that are customarily eaten with-
out cooking. More of these home-
made products are prepared at hog-
killing time on the farm than at any
other time.

American people, as a rule, prefer
cooked pork, but there are many who,
perhaps unknowingly, consume pork
in an uncooked condition either in the
form of raw ham or undercooked saus-
ages. In many localities consider-
able amounts of these products are
made up and consumed at home or
distributed throughout the neighbor-
hood. Large quantities of pork prod-

[article continues on column 4, middle section]

ucts intended to be eaten raw are
also prepared commercially.

Why Raw Pork Causes Illness.

The disease known as trichinosis,
which may result from eating raw
pork, is caused by certain round-
worms called trichina. These are
microscopic in size and infest the
flesh of hogs. The prevelence of
trichinae in hogs is indicated by the
fact that during nine years, 1898-
1906, when the carcasses of hogs
were inspected microscopically by
federal inspectors, of 8,000,000 car-
casses so inspected 1.41 per cent con-
tained living trichinellike bodies or
disintigrating trichinae. In other
words, and in round numbers, trichi-
nea were present in 1 out of 71 hogs
and, if the presence of dead trichinea
is included, in 1 out of every 30 hogs.

Unlike many other infectious dis-
eases, the severity of an attack of
trichinosis, depends upon the number
of parasites swallowed. Large quan-
tities of slighly infested pork must
be eaten in [illegible] produce appre-
ciable effects. If severe illness fol-
lows the eating of a small amount of
the meat, the pork must have been
heavily infected.

Souces of trichinosis.

How different our New Year's
Eves of today are from those of yes-
terday! Today we ring in the new
year with joy and gladness in our
hearts, but I can remember when we
were children traveling alone on the
road, Lottie and I were terrified by
the din and confusion of it. Lottie
was nine and I was ten when we were
doing one-night stands with a second-
rate company, our vehicle being "The
Child Bride"—one of those rare and
rank old melodramas constructed to
give one alternatively chills and fever,
but winding up as prescribed by all
optimists—"happily ever after."

Two or three of the actresses had
faithfully promised our mother when
she put Lottie and me on the train to
look after us, care for us and see that
we stood in no iminent danger. But
they cared nothing about us, and we
two little tads were given neither at-
tention nor kindness, but left to wan-
der around and shift for ourselves.

Our greatest terror was the land-
ing in small towns and going to ho-
tels, where invariably we were given
the poorest room in the house. Thus
going back and forth to the theater,
through strange, dark streets, we
would shrink from every shadow and
run from lighted lamppost to lamp-
post like scared rabbits. I was al-
ways the guardian of our resources,
which seldom amounted to more than
twenty dollars, but I stored it in a
secure leather purse and hung it
around my neck. This was guarded
as if it contained the capital of the
Bank of England.

Left to Shift for Themselves.

One night, reaching a town we had
never visited before, the company
slipped away from us while we were
busy trying to locate our suitcases.
We hurried in the direction they had
taken and found they had gone in a
machine and had completely forgot-
ten us.

Lottie and I could hardly keep the
tears from our eyes when I asked the
station agent if the know to which ho-
tel they were going. His abrupt
"Nope—I ain't no mind reader.
There's a dozen hotels in this here
town," sounded as violent as if he
had ordered us to prison.

The buses were gone, so we took
the street car. As we rounded a cor-
ner many blocks from the station, we
saw the first electric sign that said
"Hotel." Lottie and I both jumped
off the car and hurried into a strange
little inn, old and dilapidated and al-
most deserted. But a cheerful fire
was burning in the grate and we
warmed our cold hands while waiting
for some one to come down stairs.
Finally the door opened and a big,
fat, jolly-looking German waddled in-
to the room.

"Vell, vot ist?"

"We ae two theatrical children," I
began timidly. "We would like to
stay here tonight, if you don't mind."

He twisted his head on one side
and looked at us with his little,
twinkling eyes.

"Ach, Himmel! Two babies, pon
my soul! Just two little vuns."

"Have you a room for us?" I asked
him eagerly.

"Ja, ja, ja!" And he beamed upon
us, patting our heads with his large,
plump hands. "Vere is your mutter
this New Years Eve? Two babies,
dot's all you are—two leetle babies."

"My mother is with another com-
pany," I explained. "We're traveling
alone. This is my sister Lottie."

Still muttering, "Ach, Gott! Two
leetle babies, traveling all by dem-
selves," to himself, he waddled out of
the room "like a great, fat duck,"
whispered Lottie to me. And as we
watched him we giggled and held our
hands to our mouths for fear he
might overhear us and come back
without that broad, welcoming smile
of his.

A Fearful Suggestion.

"You don't suppose"—and Lottie's
eyes grew suddenly serious—"we
have got into a robber's den and he
might steal all our money, do you,

I felt the leather purse which hung
around my neck excitedly, confident
that my twelve dollars in one dollar
bills was still there. "I don't think
so, Lottie, dear," I said, trying to
calm her. "He seemed to be a very
nice gentleman."

"You can never tell with robbers,"
warned Lottie. "They're awful sly
people, Mary."

When he returned, he brought with
him a tray and on it were two large
glasses of warm milk and some of
the best buns and German cakes I
have ever tasted. Oh, how we chil-
dren gobbled that New Year's Eve
spread! And how warm and cozy
we were in this little roadhouse, for

[article continues on column 6,]

such it was, with our kind German
host. There was no ringing of bells
or blowing of horns or throwing of
confetti on this, our New Year's Eve.
But it was one of the happiest nights
we had spent since we had to leave
our home and travel on the road.
