What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

V feu V’ & N O M O R E H A Z I N G A L L O W E D Strong1 A r r a ignm e n t o f H a z ing in all Form s Reported by Investigating Com m itte. 'The report of the special congressional committee which investigated the hazing of Cadet Booze and the general subject of hazing at West Point, was submitted to the house of Representatives by the chairmau, Representative Dick, together with a bill making stringent regulations against hazing, fighting and all brutal practices. The report is an exhaustive review of the prfctice.of hazing in all its forms, and while moderate in tone is still,never- spected at the academy. In one case a eadet was called a “damned Jew,” but this;was an isolated case. Tw® Hebrews now at the academy testified that they had never been ill-treated on account of race and religion. The diligent efforts of the academy officials to suppress hazing are set forth. But it is pointed out that while there are \ 71 army officers in the academy, 11 per­ sons are solely charged with maintaining discipline, in a reservation of more than 2,000 acres, and more than two miles long, over 450 cadets. More officers are needed during the day or night. M E MO K T A L T O (GrEN.i G R A N T . Senate Passes B ill Calling For Statue In Tlie City Of W a s h in g ton . D a n g e r o f Coltls an d L a G r ip p e . tlieleBS a stinging arraignment of many alleged brutal practices enumerated. It specifies more than 100 distinct methods of annoying and harassing fourth class men and describes them in detail. One of the “funny formations” de­ scribed is that practiced on Philip Sheri­ dan, Jr., who was compelled. to ride a broomstick, “ in mockery of bis illustrious father’s achievement at Winchester. The report states that a system of fighting has grown up which is shocking in its character. The fightB are described and the committee states that the “ West Point code is far more vicious than the <Jueen8bury.” The committee held that fighting is the worst form of hazing. The report says that such fighting as that at West Point is a felony according to the statutes in many of the states, and the time has come when congress must decide whether lights, which are high orimes elsewhere, shall continue at West Point. The committee findB that Cadets Mac- Arthur, Breth and Burton were hazed into convulsions, others were hazed until they fainted, while others were hazed until they were sick. Tho liaziag of Cadets Booze and Breth are elaborately treated but tho committee does not at­ tributs theii deaths directly to hazing. ' The report adds : “But while we can­ not fix upon hazing the responsibility for these two deaths, tho possibility is that it hastened them, and the blot it throws on the other »vise fair and glorious fame of the academy; its conflict with proper training and discipline, and unfit­ ness in this new century urges the adop­ tion of reasonable, yet we believe effect­ ive measures for its eradication and the promotion of discipline at the academy.” The bill submitted contains 11 sections against hazing and provides means for its detection and punishment. Dismissal is provided for taking part in a fight or a challenge, directly or in­ directly, or for any form of nnnoynnee, harassing or bracing of cadets. Cadets dismissed are made ineligible to appoint­ ment to tho army, navy or marine corps. Provision is made fôr courts of inquiry, courts martial, closer association between officers and cadets, and other means for effectually'stopping the practice of haz­ ing. Taking up the Booze case, the'com­ mittee states that his conduct at the academy was strictly correct, although under the offensive class despotism, it was viewed as meriting chastisement. The circumstances of his being called out liis fight and the system of annoyance practiced on him are minutely stated. The committee added: “Whether injur­ ies in'the fight, disturbance of the stom acb, irritation of feelings and other super-added ordeals added to the severe hut proper duties of the cadejt caused de pression in Booze, and without these un­ lawful exactions be could have studied and gained in strength and vigor,, are also problems beyond human knowledge tc determine. And a like commentary must be made respecting the case of John Edward Breth.” The committee;say that on a whole a man’s religious opinions are highly re- The greatest danger from colds and la grippe is their resulting in pneumonia. If reasonable care is used, however, aud Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy taken, all danger will be avoided. Among tbe tens of thousands who have used thiB remedy for these diseases we have yot to learn uf a single case having resulted in - pneu­ monia, which shows conclusively that it is a certain preventive of that dangerous malady. It will cure a cold or an attack of la grippe in less time than any other treatment. It is pleasant and sufe to tak6. For sale by C. H .' Drake, drug­ gist. Photography In The Stomach. Doctors have succeeded in taking pho­ tographs of the mucous membrane of the stomach in the living subject. A stom­ ach tube, sixty-six centimeters long, with a diameter of eleven millimeters, is intro­ duced, having at the lower end an electric lamp sad at the upper end a camera. The %tomack is first emptied and washed, and then distended with air. Then fifty pictures cau be taken in rapid succession in from ten to fifteen minutes. By turn- the aparatus on its own axis all parts of the mocoue membrane can be pictured. The photographs are about tbe size of a cherry stoue, but they can be en­ larged to any extent.—Practical Drug­ gist.
