In tlio Novombar number of
Chambers' Journal o last year
thore is it, longund interesting
urticlo on leprosy in India and
China, which would certainly bo
rend with interest by tho local
Tho article treats tho subject
most exhaustively, and describes
tho lecoguised modo of finding
out whether a subject is affected
by leprosy or not by exposing
tho suspected features and mem
bers to the light ovor a cruoible
of nitre, when tho traces aro
shadowed out unmistakably, and
purchasers of female slaves' in tho
region of Canton nways subject
tho proposed purchase to the
ordeal of tho cruoible. Tho ro
niarkable thing is that lepors do
not suffer any pain. Tlio writer
of the article states that when in
Burundi he saw a fow cnBos of
leprosy near Rangoon nnd n
nativo Burmeso doctor at the timo
assured him that he possessed tho
secret of nn absolutely cortaiu
euro of leprosy, and offored to
euro in his preeonco any lopor ho
might bring to him. Ho said ho
had learned tho secret1 from nn
old bonzo in a kynung, or temple,
such (is thu poor use in Burinnh
for the purposes of an inn.
Tho article goes on to sny tho
doctor had dono the priest sorao
good turn, and tho priest, who
wii-j on tho vergo of denth, wished
to requite the favor. The euro is
as follows. As, in the caso of tho
Chinese crucible test, nitro pluya
nn important part, and it is worth
whilo investigating tho question
why nitro should possess at ouco
tho property of disclosing nnd
curing leprosy. It is also remnrk
able that, as with tho Chinese, ar
senic is used as an alterative.
Tho Burmese bonze's prescrip
tion specified equal parts of salt
potre, arsouio, camphor, vitriol,
sulphur, orpiment, common sol
der, and whito arsenic powdered
and heated ovor n chnrcoal fire.
A pieco of paper is laid ovor tho
pan to prevent tlio mixturo from
flaring up by coutnet with too
much nir. Tho thick vapor
which arises is allowed to collect
in nn nlembio in tho form of a
crust. Ono sixty-fourth ' of a
rupee in weight ot this crusty
essence is administered, mixed
with pitro honey, to tho pntiont,
who must have previously de
voured at least lllbs. of houoy by
woy of preparing his. stomach.
Notwithstanding nil this houoy
the lopor is at once soized with n
most violent fit of nausea aud
vomiting, and during the whole of
tho next day tho leprous spots
will bo bo hot that thoir,glov mny
bo folt nt n distance of 2ft. On
tho fourth day scabs aro pooled off
nll.tho affected parts', and the pro
cess is repeated if necessary until
all these ioprous spots coaso tobo
fevorish. in somo cases four or
five repetitions are necessary and
occasionally tho sevoro vomiting
'carrios off the patient.
The above euro, or allogod cure,
for leprosy was brought bytlio
Burmeso doctor before tho Euro-
Eean practitioner in Mandalay or
Rangoon, and this practitioner
advised the man to lay his Becret
before tho Indian Uovornmont;
but nothing was dono.

And in saying euoh things ho
told a great deal of truth. The
general drift and scopo of his re
marks were right una sensible.
We hayo no desira Xo find fault,
but rather .to applaud nnd rein
force But whou ho wont bo far
an to say, us he did, if correctly
roported, that if men spend their
Kvoniugs nt drinking saloons
rather than at their homes it is
their wives' fault, hu inr.do a much
too sweeping usortion. With
tho best of intensions, he ran jtho
risk of ueUtnlwiug the good

tion. It cortainly is, in many casos to
a greater or less extent, the wifo's
fault. To a greator or les3 oxlent,
wo say. For in multitudes of casos
her just sluiro of tho blame is re
latively very small. Mnuy and
many n time-a husband is unmov

ill-cooked food, slatternly dress,
the husband's scanty earnings
wasted by the wifo in foolish pur

Mr. Henry Loo, an actor who
has established nn envinblo repu-
tntion iu Amorica for his presont- j
ntiou of romnntic characters, nnd
who is wellknown in London,
whore ho leased the Avonue
Thentro nnd noted for some time,
has just arrived iu Honolulu from
Attbttnliu, nnd proposes to give
on entertainment nt tho Opera
Uouso on Montlny and Tuesday
ovonings which will bo entirely
now to patrons of the stage. Jlr.
Leo is traveling this way throueh
America to Londofi whero nn ex-
teiiBivo ongngemont awnits him
at tho Palace Theatre. On his
way ho will, at tho urgent request
of prominent managers ami on
payment of nn unusually big
salary, give his entertainment
at San Francisco, Chicago and
Now York for short seasons. Tho
title of Mr. Leo's performance is
,,Oreat! Men, Past aud Presont,"
aud it is in tho nature of personal
representations of all tho great
mon ot the world, living nnd dead.
If i not merely a facial imitation.
Thut is a small detail of Mr. Leo's
work. Ho presents every character
(ib though tho original hinisolf
woro standing before nnd addres
sing tho audience, the imitation
being exact in physical vxprcs
siou, iu dressing, iu mnuuor, iu
geBture and iu voice. This in it-
scit is uo ensy tnsl: tor au actor
to undertake, but when is added
the faot that less thuh n minute
elapses between the appearance of
each character tho performance
becomes something of an achieve
ment in wizardry, as tho greatest
critic in England, William Archer,
described it. Mr. Loo haB n gal
lery of 30 or 40 subjects, the most
popular of which aro tho Popo,
Clpvelnod, KoneoiiBfiold, Chamber
lain, Dickens, Ibsen, tho Gorman
Emporor, tho Czar, tho Frmioh
Presidont, lludyard Kipling,
President Krugor, Tennyson,
Bismarck and many others. Each
character speaks it short "pioce,"
an exuet copy of his stylo of
oratory or composition, this work
having boon dono by Mr. Mal
colm Watson, tho English drama
tist, whilst spooinl and beautiful
music has been composed for each
chnructor by tho lender of tho
Loudon Drury Lane orchestra, Mr.
John Crook. Tho whole forms a
brilliant artistic novelty nppealing
uliko to tho oyo nnd the oar, and
ontortaining as woll as instruct'
ing. Next to seeiug tho great
men of tho world in person this is
undoubtedly tho best thing. So
accurnto nre the character repre
sentations that having scon them
ono may won say thatlio lias
scon tho origimtls. Mr. Lee has
just completed a brilliantly sue
cessful tour of Africa nnd Aus
tralia, and at each placo ho ro
coived enthusiastic send-offs nnd
waB mado to promise that ho
would pay them return visits.
Tho Opora nouso should bo well
