Ma. Editor: It is the function

With yonr permission will expose

The .'writer remembers the time
when in some neighboring families
each brake off a piece of bread,
thrust a fork into it and dipped ir-o
one common dish of gravy. The
tact that the very air, our cooking
departments, etc., contain the germ,
of disease doe3 not argue for a lacfc
of precaution froui the communicn

practicable line. We would not ini
differently inhale the breath of a
difeased person. There should be
more efforts to prevent contamina

Ic is probably not so much the
well that fear or realize the danger
of communicatioi from the diseased
as it is the solicitude of the diseased
for the safety of others that makes
this a question one that may well be

Sherman K. Jennelle, aged two
months, upon his arrivirg at the age
of 21 years. The" accumulation of
this tidr sum was the carrying out
of a bright and novel idea of an
eastern lady after whom the child
was namd, and as a hint that might
be taken advantage of by many
parents in moderate circumstance?.
One day last week J A Jennelle,
ageptoflhe Red Line, and well-
know l in railroad circles and on
Change, dropped into the Mississippi
Valley Tru6fc Company and . ap
proaching Secretary Chandler, said
that he had a little business to
transact with him, at the same time
handing him a $20 bill, which he
placed upon depnsite to the credit
of his two-months old son, Sherman
K to remain at interest for 21
"This fund," explained Mr.
Jennelle, "and the novel idea are
from Mrs. George B Sherman, of
Buffalo, N. Y., whose husband is
general manager of the Vanderbilt
fast freight lines, and after whom
the little one is named."
With a smile, Mr. Chandler said
that he would fix the youngest out,
and going to the book-keeper
personally attended to the drawing
up the necessary papers. Handing
oyer the documents to Mr. Jennelle,
he said, "your son Sherman K., is
the youngest depositor we have on
our books, and I think, the youngest
