Figures prepared by the commission show that the cholera among swine is now causing a loss of approximately $60,000,000 In the United States every year and that the tendency is to increase rather than diminish owing to the fact that the several states are compelled to fight the Inroads of the bog enemy practically alone.

Herbert Moore and R. H. Bowman. CHURCHES URGED TO THROW OPEN DOORS Speakers Point Out the Value of Night Schools j. For Aliens. Immigration day was observed at the Monroe United Presbyterian church Monday right with special services. R. H. Bowman and T. Herbert Moore of the National City bank were the speakers. The question of dealing with the immigrants was taken up and dis-caused at some length. Mr. Bowman said the first step to be taken with foreigners waB to make them American citizens and, then proceed to convert them to the Christian faith. He urged that all churches throw open their doors to the immigrants of this country. ' "Immigrant Hopes," was the subject of an interesting address by Mr. Moore. He said In part: "About half the people in the United States are of foreign birth or of foreign parentage. The question that arises as we think of this vast multitude Is 'What hopes may be considered enfolded In that state- ment?' We may consider it from the foreigner's point of view and Bay that his hopes are simply to get a good roll of American money and re turn to his old country and live the balance of his life in ease. That is evidently the idea of the bulk of the foreigners that come to us. What Are The Hopes? But we want to know what are the hopes that we find in the fact of the multitudes of foreigners? "First. We may hope that for eigners may help develop natural re sources in America. There are thousands of acres of land in the West that are as barren as a desert which they are. By irrigation, these lands become fruitful. Many of our people refuse to settle In such lands until they have proved their value as money getters. But the hope may be entertained that such lands may be cultivated by foreigners. I "Second. The hopes that foreigners may become Americanized are of use. All over the land, evening schools are being organized where the English language is taught, and patriotic principles are being learned by men recently from abroad. If they learn the way of America before their foreign ways are established among us, we have gained a valuable step over a possible error In the past. We must teach them or they will teach us. Many Return Home. "Third. We may well hope that the simple truth of the Cross may land In the hearts of these friends so that as they return to their homes they may take the same truth back to their friends. During the last( panic 700,000 returned to former homes. It Is a fact that In Ireland old shacks have been removed and snug little homes put In their places by sons that have returned from America. New ideas have been planted on many a home farm and In many a city home by men and women who had a few years In our country. "But we hope that they may not only take our Industrial ways to (Continual on PaRc Twelve.) RAIDS CLI B ROOMS. Canton, O., Nov. 18.
