Half a dozen judges have given up summer vacations to help clean up Ihe crowded criminal docket's. The country will hcii><> that the present exhibition of activity in Chicago is not just another Hash in the pan. Chicago's lawlessness has been a national disgrace, and a challenge to democratic government. The city has been the pivo! of crime organized on a national scale. Amfwhile there can lie nothing but applause for Chicago's brave acts and promises, it might mil be amiss lo wonder why Ihc elficacy of such methods was not discovered before a condition of veritable anarchy developed.

MOHKIS FISHBEIN Editor, Jourrul of Uie Anitrkln Medical Association, and of Hy- iclal, the IkaltH Majiilrte No one knows wlicn the first epi-' demle ol lethargy associated wlUi fever and .destruction of brain tissue first aflllcled mankind, but HiplKKratcs, the father of modern scientific, medicine, described an epidemic of this characler which appeared In the spring and continued on Into the autumn, at which time it was more fatal. There were similar epidemics in Hie IGth century in various parts of Europe. Near the end of 1890, Eudi an epidemic occurred In southern Europe and was described under the name cf "nona." However, the modern condition called epidemic encephalitis was described In Vienna In 1917 during the Woful War and was given the name "encephalitis setharglca"—or "sleeping sickness" as some commonly call it—because it Is an In- Ilammallon ol the brain associated with drowsiness and somnolence. ***' I The disease spread to England and to the United States and Ca- ada; it seems possible, however, that there were individual cases in the United States before 1015. Epidemic encephallis occurs mcsl frequently in February and March but may'occure at any time of tlw year. Special attention has been paid to it in the newspapers recently became of the ca2C of Patricia Maie 1 r\\ff Lv-/V^ lally somnolent, for several years following Infection with this disorder. The disease seem.s to have been more common In the United Stales and In Europe than on other continents. It is quite mildly conla- glous, but outbreaks have teen reported In schools, asylums and barracks In which large numbers of people are housed. The cause of this condition is not known. There lias been much research In an attempt to find a definite germ and n definite serum or vaccine based on the discovery of the germ. While much of this has been ol interest and may perhaps lead to the eventual solution of tr.e problem, the exact organism lias not yet bsen found. 4 » • . In most easjs the disease occurs in three stages: first, the beginning is sudden; second, a milder condition following the first acuie condition; and, finally, a *• sort of chroic condition In those who re- In tl:e acute stage there are the usual symptoms ol infection, such as fever, weakness, headaeh? and running of the nose, but In addition In these eases there is quite frequently double' vision and emotional disturbances indicating that the brain has been affected. Most of the patients become ieth-, argic or sleepy at the beginning of the disease and remain in this condition until the recovery from the acute stage has taken place. Courier H-'ws Want, Ads Pay.
