was among the passengers on the

Panama today. Mr. Matlock said:
"Things are very bad at the
Isthmus' The diseases prevalent
are measles, smallpox, yellow fever
and malaria, and there was one case
of birtjo.iic plague. The dead trains
run from Colon to Monkey Hill, a
mile and a half south of Colon, always

were waiting for their mouej in or

six got it in time to sail."
Miss A? A. Robinson of New York,
who had been a hospital nurse foi"
year on the Isthmus, also returned

"The supply of nurses," she said,
"is beginning to fall off, and soon the
hospital at Panama will be very

Why Curzon Resigned.
LONDON, Aug. 15. The struggle
for supremacy between Lord Curzon,
the Viceroy of India, and Lord Kit
chener, the commander-in-chief of
the military forces, continues. When
Lord Curzon threatened to resign
if he d!d not have his way, fjord
Kitchener ' hurried to follow his
example, and General Elles actually
did resign. So far Lord Kitchener
has been successful. lie set Jut to

grounds that it wi s useless for war
conditions. These reforms " wore
handicapped by the military mem
ber of the Viceroy's council, General
Elles, who had the right to refuse
laying them before the Viceroy.
As the commander-in-chief 'is not
the man to be balked in the work lie
has set out to do, he laid the case
before the home government and
threatened to resign unless-he was
freod from the do,,- upon his
actions. The clog was removed.
In other words, General Elles re

William and the Diplomats.

WILLIAM AND THE DIPLOMATS.
When the European statesmen rub
their weary eyes and yawn
Do they start the day by putting
their official trousers on,?
Nay, each scans the far horizon, and

When a whistle toots in London, or
it thunders over Greece,
Or a rooster crows in Paris, or a
donkey brays at Niee(
Or it rains at Copenhagen, or a
bomb bursts at Moscow,
Europe rises to inquire: "What Is
William up to now?"
When a cloud floats over Holland, or
a Polish baby cries;
When a match is struck in Belgium,
or a Swedish maiden sighs;
When in Rome the startled people
her the mooing of a cow,
Europe's trembling statesmen won

When the evening shadows lengthen
and the western sky is rod;
When the lights glow in the castles
and the children go to bed;
When the statesmen don their nigh
ties and in reverent silence bow,
Each down in his heart keeps ask

Glaciers Give Up Dead Bodies.
The recovery of a guide's body
after twenty-eight years' entomb
ment in a glacier of Monte Rosa is
the third restoration of tho kind in
Alpine history. In 1S77, his tourists
saw hi tu disappear in the crevasse,
and tho body could not then bo re
covered. But during the interval
tho slow movement of the glacier has
been continually bringing It down,
until it lias been disgorged at last
his ice axe still in the dead man's
hand, his pipe iu his pocket. The two
previous instances occurred at the
Glacier des Bossons, beneath Mt.
Blanc, where the remains of the vic
tims of the Hamcl catastrophe in
1820 appeared after forty-one years,
and those of Captain Ark wright (lost
in 18CG), after thirty-one. Perhaps
this third case may strengthen the
hope that, as some have been pre
dicting, the body of Lord Francis
Douglas, lost in the historic first
ascent of tho Malterliorn, may be
given up near Zermatt this summer.

Pearls Caused By Paris! tea.
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19.
Familiar as may be the fact that
pearls are fr.rmed around instrnsive
foreign bodies within the shell of the
oyster, tho notion that such mstru
sive bodies nre apt to bn inorganic
particles, such us grains of sand,
must, asserts the quarterly Review,
bo given up. Recent investigation
has shown that the "nucleus" which
must be present if a pearl is to be
formed, is the larva of some "highly
organized liarasite," having a com
plicated and as yet inaccurately,
known life history. The parasite
would seem to form a pit in the out
er surface of the mantle or fleshy
flap that lines the shell of the oyster,
and this mantle, "in order to protect
itself, secretins a pearly coat around
the parasite. ''Microscopic, exami
nation of thin sections made through
decalcified pearls showed that they
ate almost in all cases deposited
around a minuto larva, which spciiis
almost certain to be the larva of the
cestoue or tapeworm." These larvae
apparently make their way into the
oyster, and the irritation they set
up induces the form. il ion of the

A temperance lecturer, w ho wished
to prove to his audience the deadly
power of whisky, caused a drop of
water to be magnified and thrown
upon a magic-lantern screen. The
picture was a terrible one. Worms
bigger than pythons, crabs bigger
thM elephants, spiders the size of a
ship, fought together in t'-e drop of
water like liends in the infernal
regions. The lecture- now caused
a drop of whisky V be added to the
water. The effect was marvelous.
The liquor killed all those ferocious
horrors instantly. Theii vast claws
and tentacles and fei lers .stiffened.
All became peaceful and Mill. An
old ladv in the front row whi-pei ed
hoarsely in her husband's ear: "Wat.
Jabez, that settels me. I'll never
drink water again 't hunt pntlin'
some whisky in it."

It is really curious how certain
songs seem to take hold of audiences
and please them more tfian anything
else they may hear hi a long pro
gram of music. This is just the case
with "Ma," the clever darkey love
song by Jean Lenox and Harry O.
Sutton. It is being madu a special
feature by the Primrose Minttrels,
and makes itelf easily the greatest
hit in the entire production.
. Horwitz & Bowers, authors of the
"Ni One But You," and "Eveiday
s Sunshine When"the Heart Beats
True," have a new song feature wih
the Primrose Miustrels, which looks
like a big winner. It is entitled
"Plain Lif.le Soldier Man," and
possesses an individuality about both
the music and lyrics which give it
special claims to consideration.' These
gentlemen have been in the field of
song writing some years and every
thing they turn out is known to
possess musical worth.
