Hardly .One Bed for Every Eight or Ten Consumptives Provided Four .States Have None. Nevada, Utah, Wyoming and Mississippi are the only states in the United States -which have made no hos pital or sanatorium provision for con sumptives, says The National Associa tion for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis in a bulletin issued to-day. At the same time the Association asserts, that, while there are 33,000 beds for tuberculosis patients in other states, this number is very inadequate, hardly more than one for every eight or ten needy patients being provided. Some states have less than thirty beds, and in not a single one is there a sufficient number available. The bulletin points that, although the death rate from tuberculosis has declined steadily for the last twenty-fiv.e years, a marked increase in hospital and sanatorium beds must be made before a rate of even 4 of 5 deaths per 1,000 population can be reached. At the present time the city death rates in this country range from eight or nine per 1,000 living to as high as 35 or 40, with the average around 15 or 16, according to the latest reports of the Bureau of the Census. The National Association estimates that there are over a million consumptives in the United States, of whom probably at least one-third are unable to provide for themselves the necessary treatment at home. Most of these cases are a menace to the health of their families and associates, and should be in special hospitals. At the present time, however, even if every case were known, it would not be pos-. sible to provide accommodation for more than one in eight or ten. The removal of these foci of infection demands more and better hospital and sanatorium provision. , NEOBO YBAB BOOB; 1913. .

Colored Alabaman Finds Encourage ment in Another Decrease of Number of Mob Murders In 2nd Three Months of 1913 This Under A Democratic Administration Which Some Colored Said Would Increase Them Only One for Bape Charge. To the Editor of The Herald, Boston, Mass. At the end of the first three months of the present year I called attention to the fact that 14 lynchings had taken place. Six months have now passed and 10 additional lynchings have occurred. For the same period a year ago there were 36 lynchings, making a reduction or 13 as compared witn last year. The smaller number indicates a growing regard for law and order. In connection with two of these lynchings the conduct of the mob, according to the newspaper reports, was exceedingly barbarous and inhuman. In one case it is stated that the mob went so far as to cut off the ears, fingers, toes and lips of the individual in order to keep them for souvenirs. In still another case it is stated that the mob dragged the victim along the streets, beat the body with a crowbar, then boiled the body in oil, then set fire to it, then strung the body up to an electric light pole in the centre of the town in the glare of the electric lights and shot over 1000 bullets into the body. It is further stated that 5000 persons, -including many young women witnessed these acts. So far no person has been arrested. Booker's List. The crimes for which individuals were lynched since I last called attention to this matter were as follows: April 5, a Negro at Mondak, Mon., for shooting officers attempting to arrest him. May 5, a Negro at Appling, Ga for firing pistol and creating disturbance. May 12, a Negro at Hogansville, Ga, for killing a White man. Date unknown, a Negro at Issaque-ana, Miss, attempted murder. Date unknown, a Negro at Springfield, Miss, murderous assault. Date unknown, a Negro at Hickory, Miss., murderous "assault. June 4, a Negro at Beaumont, Tex, accused with two others of attacking a party of white men. v June 13, a Negro at Anadarko, Okla, for murder. June 19, a Negro at Hot Springs, Ark, for rape and murder. June 21, a Negro at Americus, Ga, for shooting an officer. Out of the 36 lynchings, in only one ease was the crime of rape charged against the individual that was lynched. BOOKEB T. WASHINGTON. Tuskegee, Ala, July 22, AMEEIOAN FOBESTEBS HELP PALESTINE. An agricultural colony in Palestine has just applied to the 'United States forest service for help in planting trees to bind the drifting sands of the Mediterranean. The colony is near Jaffa, or Yafa, the ancient -Joppa of the Bible; and there is being developed in connection with it a seaside resort, with hotel, villas, bath houses and gardens. The experts of the service point out that the reclamation of sand dunes is not a serious problem in the eastern United States because the prevailing winds are from, the land and the sand Is blown, into the sea. On tho west coast the situation is more serious. The most notable example of reclaimed sand areas there is furnished by Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, where grasses, acacias, and, later, trees and shrubs have converted sand wastes into pleasure grounds of great beauty. The attention 'of the 'Palestine -colony is called to the wonderful reclamation of theLandes, France, where a wealth producing forest of waritrmn pine, the sesree ef the French tarpeatiae, has been grown to take the place ef shifting d&nes.
