The unfortunates are of all ages from

represent all stages of the disease. In
the case of Abraham Ferneudw, who
has been affected nine years, the oaly

are gone, He is stone deaf. Wagers

"It was truly a sad sight to see tie
formed, mutilated trunks, with scarcely
vestiges of ejtromlties, seated beforo
tbe camera; and there was something
pathetic In the almost universal re
nueet to be supplied with pictures of
themselves, which could only be con
stant reminders of their hopeless atlllc
tions. In addition to tho Individual
photographs, various lariro groups were
taken, with an effect both sad and gro
tesque. There is one bright spot, how
ever, in tbe dark picture of misery, this
being tbe devotion and self-abnegation
displayed by tbe near relatives of many
of the sufferers, who, although enjoy
ing themselves the blessings of
health and strength, cheerfully sub
mit to perpetual imprisonment in
order to minister to tbe wants of
their husbands, mothers and other
relatives, thus alleviating their wees by
their companionship and care. Many
examples of this are seen to-day on the
lazaretto Island, and it speaks well for
human affection that, even when the
loved one has become a loathesome
mam, conjugal ties and tbe claims of
blood rise superior to tbe fear of ooa
taglon and the repulsive surrouodiBKe."

bas always beon well understood that r
union between a sound and a diseased
person would be liable to result In the
propagation of diseased offspring, but,
until the occurrence of tbe births re
ferred to, It was believed that two un
doubted lepers could not procreate,
and, In these two exceptional cases,
"I would be inclined to ask whether
a mistake may not have been mado In
the diagnosis of one or tho other of tho
parents, confounding with true leprosy
some other physical taint, which,
though similar In appearance, may be
different In kind, lie that as it may,
neither one of the two children has as
yet shown symptoms of tbe disease,
and in March of last year one of them,
who had reached the age of 14 years,
having passed bis whole life on the
Island with his leprous parents, was
allowed lo return to society, after hav
ing been formally pronounced clean by
a board of competent experts. This is
but one Instance of IhojiUMling char
acter of the disease. The general ef
fect of thesq mariisges has, no doubt,
been to induce more cheerfulness and
resignation and to sdd greatly to the
good discipline of the establishment."
Mr. I'lumacber explains that, al
though marriages would not be allowed
between a sound and a diseased person,
yet, in the ease of the development of
leprosy In one of a couple after mar
liage, tbe sound consort is permitted to
seeompany tho other to tbe lazaretto,
and tbis baa occurred la many Instance.
With Ibe system of separate cottages for
ttose who desire tbeiu, the islaad is be
ginning to assume the aspect of a rural
municipality. Its extent is little more
tkaa a mile square, with good soil, of
which adv eutage has been takes by tbe
Vi ell to do patients for the culU vailon of
various products aad the breeding of

the weight of medical opinion, at least
In this country, Is opposed to that
theory. Tho present superintending
physician, Dr. Alclbladcs I'lores, is
however, a firm believer In tho doctrine
of contagion, even going so far at to
state that our recent expedition to the
Island was a dangerous oxperlment,
which mlcht result In the contraction
of the disease and tbe subsequent
blighting of tbe life prospects of the
members of our party. It is true that
on that day our rntercourse with tbe

easily understood that, should matter

Inevitable infection would result aad
leprosy be engendered, in tbe same
manner that tbe surgeon at times meets
bis death through blood-poisoning con
tracted in the dissection of a cadaver.
Bo far and no farther am I an advocate
of tbe theory of contagion, and it Is

"The experience of many years in

ouad wives hae been living with
diseased husbands, some of whom have
arrived at the last and most loathsome
stages of tbe malady. Daughters have
ministered to their arUieted mothers
for years, ami at tbe death of tbe later
have returned to the world, where they
are to day healthy mothers of healiby
fsmilles, and the entire history of the
lazaretto for more than fifty years is a
refutation of the coatsgiousaess of the
disease. Tbe reason, I fancy, why
pbyeklaas here sometimes differ oa this
point is that there are two theories re
specting tbe origin of leprosy, one of
which tke parasitical or mlciohian
