TUNNELING THE ALPS.
The X4t*at Move la th Commretl W
far* of Franc* and Germany.
Northern ana Western Europe, were
formerly shut off so completely front
Italy by the great mountain barrier oi
the Alps that the passage of this barrier
by a great number of men, as in the
campaigns of Hannibal and Napoleon
Bonaparte, become most memorable
events. The Romans, having finally
opened a road over the Alps, dedicated
with rejoicing to Jupiter Penninus,
and built a temple at the summit
Where the temple was built the famous
monastery of St. Bernard has since been
erected, but the Romans' road is now
practicable only for mules. The Sep
timer was another pass frequented by
the Romans, but only a footpath leads
across it now.
The magnificent carriage roads built
early in this century over the Alps
crossed at more practicable passes than
were known to the Romans, notably at
St Gotthard. Napoleon built two great
roads over the Mount Cenis and Simp
Ion passes, the first of which lies be
tween Fiance and Italy, and the second
between Switzerland and Italy. But
these international carriage roads, in
an age when Europe was covered with
railroads, were unequal to the demands
of commerce. Switzerland, to the north
of the Alps, became criss-crossed with
railways, but the country was like a
blind alley, which no one could get out
France, the country which built the
Suez Canal, saw the necessity of rail
to reach the peninsula of Italy,
where the traffic of the East might be
deposited by steamers coming througr
the canal. But the railway could only
be built by the aid of a great tunnel
beneath the Alps. The work was most
formidable, but it was at last con
structed by an enterprising Frenchman,
with public assistance, and in the year
1871 the tunnel under Mont Cenis, forty
thousand and ninety-two feet long, and
ascending at its summit to a height four
thousand three hundred and eighty feet'
above the sea level, was opened. This
was at the nearest of the great passes
to the Mediterranean Sea, and the tun
nel threw the traffic of the East and of
Italy into the lap of France, except such
as passed through Austria.
This set Germany at work to dig a
great tunnel through which her road to
Italy should lie. The Germans joined
with Italy and Switzerland in the work
of constructing a still greater tunnel
under the pass of S Gotthard, and
within eleven years of the opening oi
the Mont Cenis route, the S Gotthard
tunnel, the wonder of the world, was
opened. It is a great hole, nearly ten
miles long, through the rock of the
main chain of the Alps.
The opening of the S Gotthard had
the effect which the Germans had hoped
for. The greater poition of the traffic
through the Suez Canal, which the
Mediterranean steamers left at the
nearest port in Italy, followed the rail
way to Central Euiope by the shortest
road, which is now through the S
Gotthard. The French now find them
selves under the necessity of opening a
still shorter route for Europe, if they
hope to gain this rich trade, and they
have set about the work.
Between the St. Gotthard and the
Mont Cenis there is another pass, the
Simplon, which offers a shorter road
than either. It was the French who
first sent a locomotive through the
pierced side of the Alps, and they do
not care to give up the contest now.
Though a great tunnel can now be cut
more cheaply than ever before, on ac
count of the experience gained, the
Simplon tunnel will cost at least
eighteen million dollars to build. One
third of this sum has been subscribed
by the Italian and Swiss governments
and the provinces and cantons inter
ested, and the rest borrowed from cap
italists of Paris. The arrangements
have been completed, and the first
of the pick-axe will be soon
When the Simplon tunnel shall have
been completed, this peaceful warfare
between two great nations. Fiance and
Germany, will have penetrated the
Alps with three great railways^ through
which all the commerce of the woild
eould be carried, where, at the begin
ning of the century, there was not even
an international oarriage road.
How happy would be the world if the
rivalries of nations resulted in no other
warfare than that of commercial and

SPREAD OF EPIDEMICS.
Tha Ncceftlty of Spreading- Hygienic Prin
ciples Among All Claasra.
At the recent International Hygienic
Congress in Vienna, Prof. Pettenkofer
lectured on hygienic instruction in uni
versities and technical schools, and
dwelt on the necessity of spreading
principles among all classes of
society. He largely quoted English
authorities, and, in alluding to the En
glish proverb "Cleanliness is next to
godliness, remarked that the statistics
of the mortality of London show how
hygienic piety has been rewarded by
the heavens. In the course of his ad
dicts he dealt with the question of
quarantine arrangements. He denied
that the English are responsible for
cholera coming to Europe through the
Suez Canal. "This opinion," he said,
"Is clearly refuted by the fact that we
were frequently visited by the disease
before the Suez Canal was opened, and
that since that time the epidemic has
appeared in many European countries,
while Great Britain, which now stands
accused, and has suffered much through,
eholera in former times, remains free
from it Why do the English, in spite
of their enormous traffic with India,
where the cholera is never extinct, not
transfer the disease to their own coun
try? On looking more closely into the
matter, it must be admitted that En
gland's immunity from cholera since
1866 is not caused by quarantines and
other expensive obstructions to interna
tional traffic, and it is to be hoped that
Italy. France and Spain, as well as
Russia, Germany and Austria-Hungary
will follow England's example."N. Y.

Food for Babes.
Prof. Albert R. Leeds states that,
out of every 100 infants fed on mothers'
milk, statistics show that about eigh
die at the end of the firs
year out of 100 wet-nursed,
eighteen die at the end of the first year
and, of 100 fed on "infant foods,"
fifty-one die by the end of the first year.
On which the Medical Record remarks
that, after all, "Infants intelligently
fed have nearly as good a chance of
life with artificial as with nati ral food
Undoubtedly a large part of the 51 per
cect of first-year mortality was due to
unintelligent feeding and preparation
of food. But it has required an extra
ordinary intelligence to meet the reI
quirements of successful bottle-nursing,
though we have shown it can be done.
Prof. Leeds says he has found that
human milk differs from cows' milk
chiefly in the proportion and digestibil
ity of the casine, which is smaller in
quantity and more easily digestible in
human than in cows' milk. He believes
he has solved the problem by digesting
the caseine by a peptogenic powder,
easily obtainable and of constant
strength, which, with the aid of heat,
reduced the caseine in five minutes.
B( fore this cooking the milk had been
first diluted with water, in order to les
sen the proportion of caseine, and then
had been enriched by the addition of
cream to restore the normal proportion
of fat. The results of a very large
number of trials, followed by careful
observation, encouraged the belief that
by this process the artificial feeding of
infants had nearly reached perfection.

Golde Discovery cured me.
Golde Discovery A elderlyyour lady
relative of mine had been a great sufferer from salt-rheum for
upwards of forty years. The disease was most distressing in her
hands, causing the skin to crack open on the inside of the fingers
at the joints and between the fingers. She was obliged to protect
the raw places by means of adhesiveplasters, salves, ointments and
bandages, and during the winter months had to have her hands
dressed daily. The pain was quite severe at times and her general
health was badly affected, paving the way for other diseases to
creep in. Catarrh andrheumatism caused a great deal of suffering
in addition to the salt-rheum. She had used faithfully, and with
the most commendable perseverance, all the remedies prescribed
by her physicians, but without obtaining relief. Sho afterwards
began treating herself by drinking teas made from blood-purify
ing roots and herbs. She continued this for eeveral years but de
rived no benefit. Finally, about ten years ago, I chanced to read
one of Dr. Pierce's small pamphlets setting forth the merits of his
GoldenMedicalDiscovery' and othermedicines. Thenamestruck

that it would take time for any medicine to effect a change for the
better, and encouraged her to continue. She then purchased a
