Broadly the remedy Is simple. A culture of the
germs in a patient are taken. From each a vac
cine is developed, and an anti-toxin, made by mix
ing the vaccines in the exact proportions in which
the germs are found in the body, is injected in
very large doses. Moderate doses are regarded as
ineffectual. merely serving to further entrench the
causitive germs. But, by this remedy, they are
not left standing roon. They are cleansed from
the body as with a hose.
The three germs which combine to kill pn )
monia patients are
direct cause of pneu
cus, which is respon
sible for localized
pustules and ab

returned enthusiastic. After some dimculty he
was able to persuade the San Francisco Medical
Society to invite lir. Schafer to deliver an address.
The facts of Dr. Schafer's cures were unbeliev
able, but the audience could not help being ini
pressed by the intense, dynamic aspect of the man.
They might doubt the possibility, but they could
not doubt Dr. Schafer's earnestness. Against their
will they had to take him seriously. When the
meeting closed, they arranged for a clinic at the
Southern Pacific Hospital, where Dr. Schafer, in
the presence of the chief surgeons of the biggest
hospitals, agreed to cure every case that was
brought before him. He accepted them as they
came and the worst was reported cured in eight
days. In other words, he was given a trial before
a competent jury, and proved his case.
At the Pebruary meeting of the San Francisco
.\Medical Society Dr. Schafer was to speak at length
and the hall was crowded,'but there were many
physicians present who had not had a first hand
opportunity to study Dr. Schafer's methods and,
although lie was supported by men whose medical
reputations were above reproach, they refused to
permit the society to endorse him. They held
that it was a matter for each member to work
out in his own practice. The address was never
delivered, but, meanwhile, lives were being saved
every day by the use of the anti-toxin.
During that trying month in San Francisco Dr.
Schafer was careful'not to advance a single claim.
He merely showed the results of his experiments
and let thenm speak for themselves. To medical
men he was quite open, but a mystery surrounded
him because lhe refused to talk for publication.
lie refused because he felt the delicacy of his po
sition. As lhe himself expressed it, he was "the
victim of the magnitude of actual accomplish
menit." It would have been very easy for him to
have acquiiredl the r-eputation of a charlatan. But
he is entirely saved from that by the fact that
lie has been furinishin~g his anti-toxin frce from
the beginning. Far from making money out of his
discoveries, he has sunk his small fortune of $40,
000 into his laboratory work andl at one time,
about five years ago, just befoire lie clinched his
discoveries, ho went dleeply into debt. l~ven at
this is being written, he is prep~aring three hun
dlredl samples of his serums which are to be sent to
leading physicians and surgeons in all parts of the
United States. With them Dr. Schafer has agreed
to leave the final verdict as to the value of his
Pneutmonia is not the only disease Dr. Schafer
has cured, but it has attracted most attention on
account of its seeming infallibility. Back of the
remedies lies a new theory of medicine. Its pirin
ciple is revolutionary, It disregards many cher
ished medlical ideas. But it gets results. Little as
they have been able to understand it, many of the
best physicians and surgeons in San Francisco
have recommended it.
"Regardless of all doubts and theories," said
D~r. W. B. Coffey, the Southern Pacific surgeon,
"I have seen real men who have been made well
Ojther- diseases In which D~r. Schafer has brought
permanent cures with his anti-toxins are scarlet
fever, rheumatism, diphtheria, typhoid fever, dys
entery, erysipelaa, tetanus and certain forms of
With that list let us stop and take breath. Al
