I ( .-. C T. Cook HaaRacentlj Establlrtas An Up-to-Datt Wish House. . Hie need of a good first class laundry in New Bern is met in the new con cern just established by Mr. Charles T. Cook, in one of the buildings on the old fair grounds on the macadamized road. The place is singularly good one for that kind of business, and noth- ing is left undone to nuke it the best laundry in the State. -: The equipment consists of machinery such as is found in the best laundries in the United States. It is all made by the Wilson Laundry Machinery Co., at Columbia. Pa. There are nineteen pices for the perfecting of the work. Washing machines, starchers, bosom ironers. collar and cuff ironers and shapers, hydraulic presses, steam dry ing cabinets and everything requisite for rapid and satisfactory work will be found there. Fastidious people will be pleased with the work for It will be done as well aa it is, possible to do. The work by hand has been reduced to the minimum but Mr. Cook has enough employes to turn the work off quickly when requested to do so. v ' v Mr. J. E. Scott has been engaged as solicitor and he will call for work in any part of the city, and will also de liver it, thus relieving house holders of a deal of the trouble and anxiety. Any i who desire it may see the machinery in operation any day. They will undoubt edly be interested in the plant. Mr. Bruner is Here. ' Mr. T. K. Bruner of the State Agri cultural Department, is in the city, looking for such objects, mostly views that he can take of fish, oysters or truck, which will go into an exhibit for North Carolina which is proposed by Governor Glenn to be sent in a special car, which will visit the New England Fairs next fall, so that the people in that section may know of North Caro lina resources, and be attracted to invest or move to this State. No one knows better than Mr. Bruner What to secure for this exhibit, and his visit to this section is one which is go ing to be of great value in showing what Eastern Carolina can produce in those three great resources, truck, oys ters and fish.

If any chemist finds any adultera tion in this paint we'll pay his bill and $1000 besides. It's nobody's business what we put in our paint, of course; but we want it known.

CO-OPERATION NECESSARY Information Solicited from Merchant and Others Handling Merchandise by Marina Service. In the early part of each year circu lars are sent out from the U. S. Engi neer Office at Wilmington, or from the sub-office at New Bern, requesting o. parties who have handled any com merce on any of the navigable waters of the State to report the character and quantity of such commerce. -' We are informed that a number of the parties to whom such circulars were sent this year have not yet replied and that the figures Bent in by some other parties are such as to indicate that the importance of theso figures is not fully understood. Some few parties even take the ground that the business hand led by them is their own affair and that the government has' no right to pry into their business. "' If the importance of these statistics were fully understood, these views would quickly disappear and all paities inter ested in the improvemei t of the rivers and harbors of the State would do all in their power to assist by submitting a complete and accurate statement cf their shipments. ' V These statistics are of vital impor tance, because when Congress is asked to appropriate money.for the improve ment of any stream or harbor, one of the first questions asked is "Ho much commerce would be benefited by such improvement?" y-, ' -i' : In fact the appropriation of money for the improvement of a waterway or harbor should depend on only three things. First, the cost; second, the cost of maintenance, and thL-d, the amount of commerce to be benefited. And the amount of commerce is judged by the reports submitted every year by the U. S. Engineer office. Of course, the imports and exports can be learned from the Custom House reports, but the domestic commerce can be learned only from the Engineer reports. No one should conclude from this that the thing to do is to make a good show ing regardless of accuracy. This ten dency is often displayed and, aside from the fact that it is dishonest, or really does more harm than good. . The only safe course is for every man to see that makes a complete and accurate re port of the business he handles over tha watercourse in question. ' Of course, absolute accuracy is often impractica ble, for unfortunately many shippers do not keep any record of the materials shipped or received, and many vessel owners keep no record of the (materials transported. But, even in these cases, moderately accurate estimate can be made if the matter is given enough thought and attention. A farmer often keeps no record of the number of pounds of cotton he raises, but he can generally estimate it with fair accu racy. And certainly it would be poor policy for him to report that he had produced five hundred or a thousand when everybody knows he produced less than a hundred, i Our readers are urged to take an ac- ' tive interest in this matter, so that the annual commercial statistics may be ac tual accurate and reliable statements, not merely rough guesses. , All parties who have not received blanks on which to report their statis tics can get them by writing to the U. S. Engineer Office, New Bern, N. C. Hat Stood Ihe Tea! 25 Ysara ' old, original GROVE'S Tasteles3 Chill Tonic. You know what you are taking. It is iron and quinine in a tasteless form.

Pneumonia la a Dangtroua Disease And Each Case Should be Carefully Guarded From Further Infection. It is an acute infecteous, contageous, systemic disease as diptheria, measles, etc , with characteristic local diseases of the lungs. It is caused by a micro organism, the pneumonia which enters the system" through the respiratory tract and blood current and produces a general disease with local manifesta tions. ' Pneumonia destroys more lives than any known disease. In the United States alone according to reliablle stat istics one person falls a victi.n to this malady every five (5) minutes and it is increasing in fatality and prevalence every yeRr, during the last decade it has increased consump i n 5 per cent while tuberculide has dt creased 40 per cent y: 'y ;V Considering the ravages this malady is working among nil classes and es pecially right now when the whole coun try is permeated with it, and in our own immediate tec tion, we are having in certain localities, almost an epidemic, I have thought, it would be of interet t as well as benefiicial to the public, to know something of the nature of this disease in as concise and clear way as space will allow. - The germ which is in the atmosphere isinhaled into the lungs, it enters' the blood, current by the bronchial arteries which alone furnish nutriment to the lungs and it follows the current until it reaches the smaller vessels, " the capillaries where it becomes lodged or clogs the capillary entirely, it then be comes an irritant and the congestion and general inflammation sets in caus ing the consolidation of the lung tif sue..,: ..,y : . ;' " As the inflammation progresses in violence according to the pneumococi (germs) these germs eliminate or manu facture a toxin or poison that is absorb ed by the general circulation producing speis denoted chills, fever and all symp toms of toxaemic poisoning. " y There are several varieties of pneu monia and they require different modes of treatment ; But the main point I wish to emphasize is prophylapsor pre vention. A patient with this disease should, as soon as suspected, be insolat ed and the room well ventilated and kept at a uniform temperature or 68 or 72 degrees and a clean cloth .should be used to expectorate in and burned as soon as used, or a cuspidor furnished prrtially filled with an antiseptic solu tion as carbolic acid, for . maldehyde tr chloride of mercury. Everything of no special use rugs, pictures, curtains, chairs should be removed from the room. The patient should be kept as comfortable as possible and not allowed to lie in one position too long, as that tends to increase the congestion of the lungs. The mouth should be frequent ly .rinsed with an anti-septic solu tion. y;-y''V;v;' . There should be no visiting of the pa tient for this disease can be carried in the clothing, as I have recently had demonstrated clearly to my mind. Only a few miles from this city a young man was taken suddenly ill with pneumonia, and, as is the custom especially in the county a good many of his friends came to sit ;up with him and from that case within a radius of one mile I had eight cases of pneumonia that could be traced directly to the first case. .. The treatment of pneumonia varies according to the variety or part Of the lung affected and the amount of toxin absorbed in the system, but I will rot go Into the details for want of space but will only mention the coal , tar de rivatives to condemn them. If the temperature does not go above 102 de grees, the patient can take care of her self but should it go above 102 or as high as 105 degrees the cold pack to the chest is decidedly the best remedy to decrease the temperature, as it also stimulates the patient and soothes the whole nervous system. ' The object of the treatment is to coun teract the toxine poisoning in the blood and the system should be well support ed with nourishment and stimulants and I would say that I have found strychnine to be a very satisfactory stimulant V '; . In the last year or two a pneumococ cus scrum has been discovered which has not been thoroughly satisfactory. But I do not think far distant v hen as in diptheria and tetanus we will have a serum treatment that will yield the same results. , Death from pneumonia is due to the direct cause of pncumococcus activity, and toxins are not to mechanical ob structions as it was thought to be under the old theory of phlogoais or inflamma tion. This is an important fact as it contradicts a theory which has been long held in regard to treatment which is dantrous and fallacious. , I would advise all persons taken sud denly ill with pain inside, with chill and cough and fever, to consult their phy sician at the curliest moment and keep in mind all the time pneumonia is -contagious nnl in many cases of the dis ease it apparently seems cured, only a slight cough remaining. It is often the beginning of tuberculosis." The object of this article is simply to in press upon the public generally the dimger of this disease and the import ance of prrphjla) s. JOSEPH W.
