In 1867 a peddler by the name of
O'Reilly obtained some stones from
the children of a Boer farmer, and
becoming suspicious of them, sent
them to an English physician, Dr. W.
G. Atherton, living at Grahamstone,
j who stated that these stones were
really diamonds.
When the news of the discovery be-
came known, a great rush was made
into the diamond country which was
located in the region around the
Modder and Vaal rivers.
The most productive region at pres-
ent is the Kimberly region, but the
largest mine, "The Premier," is locat-
ed in the Transvaal.
The diamond industry owes much
to C. J. Rhodes, who in 1888 organized
the DeBeers Consolidated Mining Co..
and changed diamond mining from
a crude industry to one that is highly
systematizdd. The annual output is
valued at $500,000,000 uncut, and
twice that amount cut.

places which closely resemble the

Importance from a Popular Stand-
"Nearly all diseases of the nose and
throat are due to either nasal ob-
struction or infection, or both," con-
tinued the speaker. He then explain-
ed, with views of normal and abnormal
specimens, the intimate relationship
existing between the' three turbines
of the nose, the throat and of the
eustachian tube, the tonsils and the
soft palate.
"Nine out of ten cases that come to
the nose and throat specialist today
claim that they have catarrh. Catarrh
is a symptom of something wrong in
the nose. It in itself is not a disease,
but a sign of some sort of infection or
obstruction, or both," declared Dr.
Canfield. "In infancy," he continued,
"catarrh is rarely due to any other
cause than some hereditary disease.
The infant is born with a healthy nose
and throat. Bacteria on chairs, rugs,
and floors get into the child's mouth
and lie in the tonsils, or the posterior
cavities of the nose. The child catches
cold; inflammation and more bacteria
cause enlarged turbinates and event-
ually adenoids form, filling up the
nasal passages, and the child is soon
The speaker then told of the most
marked symptoms of adenoids such:
as, breathing through the mouth,
sucking the thumbs, and failure of
physical development of the nose,
face and chest, It was shown that
adenoids are spongey masses gener-
ally g'rowing in the proximity of the
throat end of the eustachian tube,
which leads to the inner ear. 'This,
it will be seen, seriously hampers the
hearing and often induces a diseased
condition of the tympanum, or, ear-
drum, sometimes resulting in partial,
or total deafness. The occurrence of
enlarged glands on the neck back of
the ear is an imuortasnt indisatton for
necessity of treatment. "If left unat-
tended this swollen condition fills the
mastoid processes and external opera-
tion is necessary.
"Catarrh of the adult is nearly al-
ways due to the adenoids of childhood,
the enlargement and degeneration of
the lower turbinate, the deformity of
the sceptum, or anything that brings
about an unnatural point of contact
of surfaces in the nose. Tuberculosis

In regard to treatment and detec-
tion of the diseases.Dr. Canfield con-
cluded his instructive lecture by in-
viting those teachers and others, in

by him frequently on the ear, nose

Lades; Favors Equal Suffrage
Ben Greet not only acts,-he talks,
and upon such an illuminating subject
as woman suffrage. The other day,
in Cincinnati he was asked to deliver
an address by the president of the
women's suffrage club, and in answer
said that he really did not thnik it
safe for actors to meddle in politics,
but being an Elizabethan cavalier, he
couldn't refuse a lady. So a nice, com-
promising speech was written.
All women should vote, who pay
taxesif they want to,-says Mr.
Creet; they should interest themselves
in municipal elections, in improving
sanitary conditions and in school elec-
tions, but there they should stop.
There are three occupations, he
maintains, which no woman has a
right to enter: the church; the par-
liament; the coal mine. When asked
his objection to woman in the church,
Mr. Greet replied that he was a
staunch orthodox Episcopalian, and
believed firm in the command of St.
Paul, "Let women be silent in the
churches." He would go so far as to
abolish women choirs. Mr. Greet is
"Women, as delicate, modest, sensi-
tive creatures, have no place in par-
liamentary bodies, for where can one
find a more degenerating atmosphere
than in the Senate? If women want
to vitally influence politics, let them
do it through the home through their
husbands and sons. My disapproval of
the coal mine is purely a sentimental
one." Mr. Greet regards woman in
too beautiful a way to see her thus
"Is it really votes for women?"
asked Mr. Greet. "I believe if the
fair sex had suffrage it would resolve
itself to more votes for men-for
women regard each other through
green spectacles, you know.
"There are two professions where
women have an equal chance with
men; in acting and in journalism.
Here the sexes can battle on an iden-
tical footing, and often it is the
woman who succeeds, Shakespeare

a large place for women and his high
respect and reverence for them is

150 women characters, only six are
Mr. Greet concluded his remarks
with an announcement that he had
a "healthy respect" for journalism-
especially college journalism.

No. 16,
Ben Greet Company, in "Romeo and
Juliet;" Draws Large Crowd
of First Nighters.
If size, attentiveness, and applause
on the part of an audience, can be
taken as an index, the Ben Greet
Woodland Players scored a success
in their production of "Romeo and
Juliet," yesterday evening. The play
was given in the open air, upons a
stage remarkable for scantiness of
fixtures, but at the same time strik-
ingly appropriate to the action of the
piece. Mrs. Charles Hopkins played
the role of Juliet; Mr. George Vivian,
that of Romeo; and Ben Greet himself,
that of Friar Laurence.
The Ben Greet Players have just
come from Culver Military Academy,
where they gave "The Taming of the
Shrew" and "The Tempest," in an
open-air theater built for them within
a lagoon. Just at the beginning of the
latter play, Dame Nature saw fit to
put on a real live tempest of her
own composing, much to the discom-
fiture of those whom she no doubt
looked upon as trespassers. But if
she interfered at Culver, she made
up for it at Michigan; for her chilly
breath last night was a great aid to
the players in all the shivery scenes.
The faithful old library clock took its
part, too; but got sadly mixed as to
its cues. However, it deserves com-
mendation for the doleful manner in
which it tolled out some o'clock just
as the funeral cortege of Juliet ar-
rived at the tomb of the Capulet's.
Several members of Mr, Greet's
present company have been with him
only this season. When questioned
as to what is his policy in this matter,
Mr. Greet said that he believed in the
old "fish in the sea" adage; also, that
audiences get tired of seeing the same
persons every year; and that he, too,
feels that way about it. Members of
the cast say that they are fortunate-
in having with them a very capable
wardrobe mistress, who lightens. the
work of everyone.
After leaving Ann Arbor, the Wood-
land Players will make an extensive
tour of Michigan, playing at Detroit,
Bay View, Mackinaw Island, and sev-
eral other places. Their season will
end with engagements in New York
City, in August.
A series of parties are being held
during the summer, every other Fri'
day afternoon, from 4:00 to 6:00, un-
der the auspices of the Women'o
League. The entertainments are held
in the league rooms at Barbour gym-
nasium; their purpose is to bring the
women students together, and to en-
able them to become acquainted with
one another. Special features. and
dancing make up the programs, and
light refreshments are'served at five,
The next party will be held one
week from Friday, and all are cor
dially invited to attend.
