The Formation of Tumors.
The oldest theory by which it was at
tempted to account for the origin of
tumors ascribed it to a peculiar state of
the system, a "cancerous diathesis,"
which rendered the tissues of the body
liable to 'cancerous degeneration. " The
great answer to this theory is the large
number of cases now on record in which
complete cure of the disease has been at
tained by early and thorough operation,
for if the tumor does not return at its
previous site or elsewhere it is manifest
that its cause must have been a local
one and must have been removed with
The coexistence of several tumors ha3
been advanced as proof that there was a
constitutional taint, but more careful
pathological work has shown that in al
most every case it can be proved that
where there are several tumors one is
considerably older than the rest, and
that tho latter are secondary and owe
their exiscence to an infection from the
first. The old theory also fails to ex
plain why the cancerous growth remains
confined to one small portion of the body
for so long a time; and why, after re
moval, it persists in returning to the
same locality; whereas both of these
facts become clear at once on the suppo
sition that cancer is a local disease.
Mis3 Jennie O'Neill Potter relates a
funny story of an experience in England
during her tour in that country. She
was invited by the Royal artillery to
give an entertainment in aid of a mili
tary charitable institution at Woolwich
garrison, near Loudon. Her readings
met with approval, and in response to an
encore ehe recited "Sheridan's Ride."
An old general of the Royal artillery,
who was chairman for the occasion,
came to Miss Potter during the interval
and said, stroking his gray mustache:
"Aw, Aliss Pottah, don't cher know,
several persons wish to know aw
where the incident of this aw Sheri
dan's ride took place. Of course I've
heard about it, but it has aw quite es
caped my memory."
"Why, general," replied Miss Potter,
who dearly loves a joke, "that Sheri
dau's ride took place at the battle of
"Certainly it did," rejoined the gen
eral, who rose, and addressing the au
dience, said, "Ladies and gentlemen In
response to numerous inquiries I have to

Sheridan was an incident of the battle

Tinnier Snm Pugh's Error.
Sara Pngh, of this city, was quite seri
ously hurt near Stillwater, O. T., a few
evenings ago. With a party of young
men he was out coon hunting. They
chased an animal several miles, think
ing they were trailing a coon, and when
the animal was treed, Pugh climbed the
tree to knock it down. In the darkness
ho could not see but what it was a coon,
and he climbed up close to it and struck
it. To his surprise ho found the animal
was a large and ferocious wildcat, which
flew at him, biting and scratching him
in a horrible manner, and causing him
to lose his hold and fall to the ground.
Iu his fall he struck a limb, fracturing
three ribs aud inflicting other severe
bruises. He will be confined to his room

The Countess Flavia Andorni was
charming, twenty-eight years of age,
40,000 lire of income as her dowry and
she did not take a husband. Every now
and then Bhe refused one. Countess
Flavia read a great deal, she invented
the fashions which the elegant women
imitated, she did not attend first repre
sentations at the theater, but preferred
second performances; she did not care
for poetry, did not use paint or powder,
never was ill, journeyed very often, al
lowed herself to be courted up to a cer
tain limit, never talked politics, liked
the conversation of men better than that
of women, had gray eyes, dark com
plexion and brown hair.
Therefore she was called rightly or
wrongly I have nothing to say about
that a woman of esprit.
The Marquis Ernesto Carafa, thirty
two years old, had a handsome head,
with a tawny blond mane, a short, aris
tocratic, tawny beard, 60,000 lire of in
come and not a sign of a wife. He paid
court to all the ladies with a certain
graceful nonchalance, danced while
others were playing cards, did not culti
vate the acquaintance of the corps de
ballet, drove his horseB himself, did not
wear a flower in his buttonhole, did not
patronize the fine arts, did not care for
music, lent money to his intimate
friends, did not aspire to be elected
deputy to Rome, loved the mountains
like a platonic member of the Alpine
club, had no literary proclivities, never
wrote love letters, was always in love
aud never in love. Rightly or wrongly,
Ernesto Carafa was called a man of
These two exceptional beings began,
naturally, like others, their acquaint
ance. Some friend of Flavia said to her,
"That Carafa is really a brilliant man;
why don't you have him presented to
you?" And Ernesto's friends: "Do you
know the Countess Andorni? A brilliant
woman, my dear fellow." And this
thrice four times, twenty times, so that
Flavia was bored and Ernesto annoyed
by it. They saw eaoh other on a prome
nade and looked at each other with ill
concealed curiosity like two rare beasts,
but the countess discovered nothing ex
traordinary and the marquis shrugged
his shoulders for the same reason.
One evening at the San Carlo, the
marquis was presented to the countess,
in her box, by a friend. Few words
were exchanged, and those of the sim
plest, of the kind that are not in the vo
cabulary of people of esprit. Ernesto
wpnt away soon, smiling ironically upon
manufactured fames, and Flavia askea
herself if she must add another nam
to the category of foolish and useless
beings already so large among her ac
quaintances. So when they met at the
theater, in society, at festivals, on the
promenade they exchanged a rather
disdainful bow, without seeking to ap
proach each other or to become better
But chance that, far from being a
person of esprit, has obstinacies which
are quite stupid made them meet and
remain near each other, perforce, at the
marriage of a cousin of Flavia -with a
friend of Ernesto. They resigned them
selves to endure each other mutually.
Each one thought how to sustain the
character attributed to her and to him,
in order not to make a poor figure; and
there ensued a conversation of para
doxes, retorts, bizarre questions, odd an
swers, stupendous absurdities, a display
of fireworks that ended by bewildering
the two pyrotechniciaus and putting
them into a state of nervousness foreign
to their habits. "What a witty and
disagreeable man! but I kept up with
him," said Flavia when she was alone.
"A witty and disagreeable woman; but
I was not left behind her," murmured
Yet the marquis went with some fre
quency to the house of the countess, and
the countess received him with polite
cordiality. Both perceived that the peo
ple around them enjoyed the relations
that united the most witty man and wo
man in the city; they perceived the
Blight smiles, the curious attention,
with which others sought to take part in
their colloquies; the care with which
was reported a witticism said by Flavia
to Ernesto, or vice versa; in short, they
perceived that they were treated by the
public as star actors. Were they con
scious of playing a part or of speaking
the truth? That is the dark point which
I shall not illuminate, but it is certain
that the little comedy continued, recited
with liveliness and much interest. Be
longing to the far from numerous class
of brilliant people, the two sought to do
precisely the opposite of whatever all
the others did.
Ernesto had at the very first declared
that he would never, never pay court to
the countess, and the countess had added
that she forbade him to fall in love with
Uer, which is quite the reverse of paying
court. Ernesto never sent flowers to
Flavia, and she never asked him for con
fidences, as is customary between friends.
The marquis never felt himself obhgl
to praise the arrangement of the h:ur,
the eyes or the arms of the countess, and
the countess avoided speaking of him
with her friends. On the subject of love
they were in accord; they spoke equally
ill and well of it, skimming the topic
lightly, of course making witticisms.
Upon matrimony it was the same. They
never became tender, never were melan
choly or pensive. They always feared
to talk sntimnt after the manner of
the crowd. They never hazarded artis
tic discussions, never discoursed of

speak of proverbs; they were n-oroady

amused1" themselves by citing -proverbs
upside down, at the cost of causing a
shudder to the unghtty Solomon and all
other collectors of proverbial phiioophy;
but it waa :u jest that oon became com
mon, and they let it go. The marquis
was always upon guard, fearing to sea a
&mil of scorn anuear unon the beauti-
ful month ot the countes3 for some in
voluntary offense against esprit on his
part. And on the other hand the coun
tess was wary as to her words, blushing
to be caught in a moment of weakness
in which she should resemble too much
any other woman.
But by too great subservience to their
reputation, Flavia and Ernesto began to
become rather tiresome; that is to say,
not to themselves, but to the people who
frequented them. It is natural that
brilliant people have many exactions, it
is natural that they 'live a life different
from that of the multitude. For ex
ample, when they met at a ball, Ernesto
saluted the countess and spoke with her
for one moment, then took a little turn
and came back to say something to her,
without even stopping long, but return
ing often, and people around said that
he was right to do so, because she alone
could understand him. They frequently
danced together for the same reason
and the other admirers of the witty
countess were left badly off, disap
pointed of the mazurka or quadrille
hoped for in vain. When Flavia went
away the marquis moved about tho
rooms for a little while longer with a
bored air; then put on his overcoat and
departed because he had no longer any
one to talk with.
At the theater Ernesto remained
much longer than was his duty in her
box, for it is very common to make short
visits to ladies. If some poor mortal, in
form of a dark youth in a dress coat,
marmoreally polished shirt front and
the relative crush hat, presented him
self to the Countess Flavia if this un
happy but contemptible young man
dared venture the customary compli
mentsan impertinent little laugh
stirred the lips of the marquis and a cut
ting reply came from the rosy mouth of
the countess. The result was the pre
cipitate flight of the young man There
was a rumor that the Marquis Ernesto
had paid assiduous court to the young
Duchess Cesira (jalbiati, a very beauti
ful young woman, tall, .vith statuesqe
outlines, great Junonian eyes, long gold
en hair, a flower of womanhood, but in
the way of intelligence, a goose of the
ingenious and conscientious sort; well,
it was to be supposed that the Countess
Flavia had exploded more than one epi
gram at the marquis, for he ceased to
hover around the Duchess Cesira.
Again, the countess and the marquis
had reserved to themselves the privilege
of many, very many strange ideas,
which they never failed to put in to exe
cution. When all the stream of car
riages was at the Riviera di Chiaia.
Flavia made hers turn by the corner of
Piedigotta and go by the Corso Vittoria
Emanuel Ernesto described a circle,
went by way of the Toledo and the Sal
vator Rosa and came to meet her. In
the winter season, in midst of the
amusements, festivals, balls, Flavia fled
away all alone to Sorrento, and after
three days Ernesto appeared there, bored
by the city. At first Flavia harl a recep
tion day, then annuled it, seeing that all
the other women, her friends, had one,
and also because the marquis made fun

isolation was made around them; tho
world confessed aloud that in those two
was contained the entire wit of Naples,
but added, sotto voce, that it was bet
ter to leave the two models of wit to
fight it out "between themselves. Flavia
and Ernesto did not perceive this, and
when the tardy moment came, in which
they found themselves alone, one facing
the other, it seemed to them a very sim
ple thing. The public had withdrawn
itself but not in vain was the invention
of art for art's sake.
One evening, be it known, in autumn
the conversation between those two lan
guished, exhausted. Not that they found
nothing more to say, but a certain sense
of weariness descended upon them. All
the evening their wit had sparkled bril
liantly, and the charming epigram, deli
cite ironies, courteous implications,
biting amiabilities had showered unin
termittently. Now they were silent.
The countess extended herself slightly
in her armchair; she was adorable under
the quiet lamplight; but the marquis,
while recognizing this fact, had the good
taste not to speak of it. He was playing
with a mother of pearl pen handle.
"Marriage is a very fine thing," he
murmured, with a pretended air of con
viotion. "For the unmarried, yes," the countess

scene of a foot race the other day, the
prize being the pretty daughter of a
Bailors' washerwoman. For some time
Barney Burns, a marine, and George
Lindsay, a sailor on board the receiving
ship St. Louis, which is stationed at
League island, have been enamored of
the bright eyed daughter of the woman
who does their washing. The men were
friends and the girl's affections seemed
to be about evenly divided on the two
ardent lovers. How to decide with
which of the two she should cast her lot
was a difficult problem, but the happy
thought of a foot race presented itself.
The arrangements were perfected and
at 9 o'clock the contestants appeared
upon the course, which was two miles
long, accompanied by a large crowd who
had been advised of the contest. Burns
stands 6 feet 6 inches in height and
weighs about 200 pounds, while his op
