Petrograd again asserts that the

The United States Geological Sur
vey early recognized the great
importance of th4 groud waters
and the numerous oomplex prob

for human use. Hence for many
years it baB carried ou investiga

Muoh more work has been done
in certain States than in others
but every state has received some

reports give, for every , locality

twe-thirds of which was brought

the present time the acreage is
considerably larger. Most of the
irrigation with ground water is
done in California, but further
developments are possible in every
western State. Moreover, irri
gation with ground water is not
oonfiued to the arid regions. The
census report shows that in 1909
more than 4.400 wells were pump

acres of rice, and pumping plants
for irrigating fruit and vegetables

caused by an inffamed oondition
of the muoous lining of the Eusta

inflamed you have a rumbling

when it is entirily closed, Deaf

Pellagra seems d.be on the in
crease. This if t le not so muoh
of North Carolina, perhaps, as else
where. A very JrbbabJe answer
to the why and; wJlarefore of vthe
situation is c$e by Joseph
Gofdberger, Sergeob in charge of
PelUgra inTestigation for the Uni-
ted States PubHaBalth Service.
Dr. GbldbergerIaims that pel
lagra is . not oon tsgSQus, iufectuous
or eve q oommunicalfie, but is due
to a faulty diet Tjie trouble with
the' dists of oeonle .who .develop
pellagfa, aeeofdiu to Surgeon
Goidberger, is tha
eat enough lein meat, beans, pea,
milk and eggs, but fit despropor
t on ately large amounts of such
thiugs as grits, myiases flakes,
oorn meal, or other starchy foods.
As a general rule,y according o
Dr. Goldberger's findings, pel
lagra is particularly' a disease of
the poor, or where, it. does strike
an individval mem hereof a well-to-do
family it is one that for some
reason has not been Bating a well!
batauced diet. Accordingly the
apparent increase fu: pellagra is
due to a more restricted diet ow
lug. perhaps, to the recent slight
ly depressed financial' conditions
among our people. ,'v
The daily diet recqmmended by
Dr. Goldberger for ah adult pel
lagrian should include a pint and
a half to two pints of milkj At
laat four eggs and a &alf pound
of fresh, lean mat, together with
a liberal allowance bf;peas and
beans These art.reiff "diet
should be varied someijjhat from
time to time to suit) thV tst" of
tbs patient. Very littlf. 1 if any.
are found necessary, in this oon
neotion Dr. Goldberger cites some
oauses of more or less fraudu
lent so-oalUd pellagra cures that
are being heralded as sure cures
for pellagra at good, stiff prices,
and what's more, tbeir patrons
a e getting cured. According to
Dr. Goldberger, it matters little
whether a person is given a solu
tion of salt aud water, sugar and
water or any other ohesp concoc
tion at a dollar or two an ounoe
for so long as the patient follows
the instructions of eatii.g liberal
ly of suoh things as meat, milk,
eggs, beans and peas tbe cbanoes
of his getting well are very strong
ly in his favor, of course, he cred
its the advertised pellagra remedy
with the cure.
Despondency Due to Indigestion.
'About three months ago when
I was suffering from indigestion
which caused headache and diizy
spells and made me feel tired and
despondent, I began taking Cham
berlain's Tablets," writes Mrs.
Geo. Hon, Macedon, N. Y. "This
medioine proved to be the very
thing I needed, at One day's treat
ment relieved me greatly, I used
two bottles of Chamberlain's
Tablets and they rid me of this
trouble." Obtainable everywhere.
