Attention is called by several English jour
nals to the alarming; increase of cancer 'in
Great Britain and the countries! ' in the
central portion of the continent 'of Europe.
Wlnlo statistic show that the average dura
tion of human life is increasing, and that
many of the most dangerous maladies of
former times have been rendered compara
ively haruieles,. still thetiumber of cases of
sincer becomes greater every year. The
rjport of the register general, recently pub-
Uhed, gives the number of deaths occurring
rrom cancer during the ten years commenc
ing with 1SG0, as b0,0)9, and shows that the
annual increase was 243. During the ten
years commencing with 1870 the total number
it deaths from cancer was 111,301. and the
ninual increase was 330. Cancer is also
increasing in France, Germany, and
the Scandinavian countries. . 1)r. H.
P. Dunn has been engaged for years
in trying to ascertain the causes of the in
crease of cancer. In a recent issue of The
Pali Mall Gazette he gives some of, the con
stations he has arrived at from his numerous
observations. In the first place, he llnds that
wealth and high civilization are favosable
conditions for tho increase of cancer. Many
other diseases are much more common, and
are likely to by much more dangerous among
the poor and uncultivated, but the reverse is
true of cancer. The persons who dwelt in
mansions ar much more liable to cancer than
those who live in cottages and hovels. It is
more common in cities than in the rural dis
tricts. It is entirely unknown among un
civilised people. Wild animals are not sub
ject to it, but domesticated ones nre. Cases
of cancer are becoming frequent among
thoroughbred animals, which are protected
from exposure, tended with tho greatest care,
and supplied with the best of food.
. Another peculiarity of cancer is that it is
much more likely to occur in jtetsons who are
otherwise m apparent iicrfect health, and in
the maturity of life, than in those w ho ore
frail and sickly, or mo subject to tho weak
ness common to infancy and old age. It is
most likbly to afflict mankind at middle age,
when life is most enjoyable to its possessor
aud most useful to others. It generally ap
pears in persons of robust form, strong
limbs, and active habits. To uso a paradox,
it is tx dUenio of health. The professional
invalid uend not fear cancer. It spares tho
weak aud sickly to attack the strong and
vigorous. Constitutions that are very liable
to other diseases appear to be proof against
Dr. Dunn states that observation shows
cancer to havo a certain geographical dis
tribution. The latitude of tho Iiritish islands
marks the center of the belt in which it pre
vails to the greatest extent It does not coin
cide with the prevailing opinion that can
cer is communicable, lie says it is neither
infectious nor contagious. There is no evi
dence that it has a zymotic origin, or, in
other words, that it arises from any micro
organism or germ. Moreover, he
ays nothing cancerous is transmitted
from parent to child, oven in the
case where the disease occurs in both.
A chilil may inherit a predisposition to
cancer that is a liability to the diseao
but not the disease itself. It commences de
novo iu oacli individual whom it attack.
Ordinarily there are no preliminary sym
toms of its appearance. The first intima
tions of the terrible disease aro tho appear
ance of a tumor and tho sensation of severe
iuiu. It always commences as a local dis
ease, and generally remains such for a con
siderable tims. It finally spreads, and by
means of the blood-vessels nnd lymphatics
infects the more distant organs of the body.
Medical scionco has accomplished very lit
tle toward osccrtai uing the cause, tho pre
vention, or cure of cancer. lUcently It has
khowu that many of tho remedies formerly
in UK) ore altogether worthloss. Medicines
for tho euro of, cancer have been very gen
erally abandoned. Medication lias given
away to surgery. In the great majority of
cases tho most tho surgoou can do is to pro
tract life. Cancers are now removed from
Itarts of the system that could not bo reached
before tho invention of improved surgical
appliances. Tho removal of a cancer after it
becomes large seldom results iu any good.
It may protract life, but it is certain to pro
tract the most severe suffering.
LONDON NOT BEAUTIFUL.
The Exteriors Gloomy, but the In
terior Lovely and Cueery,
London Cor. Boston Herald.
London is not a beautiful metropolis, in the
sense in which many of the continental cities
are beautiful. The great business centers
and thoroughfares are somber and dark, and
even dismal The buildings, whether of
stone, brick or stucco, have a veneering of
soot, and a cloud of smoke hangs over the
city for. long weeks and even months at a
time. One must go into the suburbs of Lon
donfive miles out from these great
business centers and thoroughfare, where
the houses stand in their own grounds
before one gets away from these gloomy
and, to the eye, outwardly inhospit
able homes. Even in the fashionable and
cxistocratic Mayfair the houses are built in
long, monotonous rows, and for the most
part of black bricks, or of bricks that have
grown black with the smoke and fogs of a
London, on the outside, is not at first pleas
ing to the stranger, as Paris or Vienna is
pleasing. Ono must know the associations
and traditions of its many historic localities,
and must also know of its treasure in every
deiartment of art and literature, to fall in
love with this dear oldgrimy, frowning Lon
don. But the interior of the London home
is usually as lovely and cheery as the exterior
is unlovely and gloomy. Go out fWe miles
in almost any direction from Charing Cross,
and you will come upon villas and mansions,
standing iu their own exquistcly kept grounds,
and here in the surburbs you get the
loveliest homes on earth. The cutside is
lovely, aud the inside lovelier still. But in
London proper the London that the casual
traveler sees and knows is, for the most
rt, dismal and ugly. Walking through
the most fashionable quarters of llelgravia,
through miles and miles of ctroets of great,
tall, old-fashioned black, brick mansions, one
would have no notion of the beauty, and, of
course, in cases, the splendor of those homes.
Fifteen years ago the aristocratic families
of England were much more conservative
in all things than they ate nt the present
time. And in no one matter were they more
so than in tho appointments and furnishings
of their homes. When I was first a guest in
English houses, the inside was as heavy and
formal as was tho outside. Ten years ago
the furniture was usually of very dark
mahogany or of black oak. Some of
course, was very old, and all of
it was cumbrous and inartistic. Many of
the old families still cling to thi.- style of
house furnishing, and lovingly treat over
table and chair as an heirloom, and would
hnrily for their lives' sake remand these to
tho lumber-room. But even aristocratic
England is not so conservative as it used to
be. England does' change. Loudon does
move. Science, art and cunning workman
ship have all united t3 make the London
home as beautiful on the inside as it is ugly
on the outside. Household decoration has
been carried about as far in Loudon as
wealth and taste could ever well demand or
suggest So far has it been carried that I
opine a distinct miction must soon set in.
There will uev.T bo a return to ugliness and
deformity, but, let us hope, to greater sim
plicity and fltnesj, vt hich will nlsj be a re
turn to a Christian economy.
AS HUMBLE CONFESSION.
Who is that little woman there,
With laughing eyes and dark-brown hail.
And physiognomy so fairf ',
Who's not as meek as she appears,
And doesn't believe one-half she bears,
And toward me entertains no fears 1
Who wakes me np on every morning.
About the time the day is dawning.
My protestations calmly scorning 1
Who runs this house both night and day,
And over all exerts her sway;
Who's boss o this shantv, anyway
My better half.

Interior Value or a Superior Educa
tion. Chicago Times.
A gentleman long interested In relief work
in this city, states that a largo proportion of
the applicants for aid aro persons of polished
education. Their letters are models of cor
rectness. Among the tramps who were re
cently fed in New York on a Sunday morn
ing was otio who returned thanks in five
modern languages, nnd repeated the Lord's
prayer in Greek, Latin and Hebrew. Ho
was a fine mathematician and a good natur
alist. Ho was ashamed to beg and did not
know ho w to ork. A tine set of books iu
uniform nnd v ery costly landing attracted
the attention uf a gentleman who was pass
ing down Fourth avenue, Now York, somo
weeks ago. He found that they constituted
the live prizes offered by a famous English
school, nnd that thoy had all becnunarded
to the same erson. He learned that the
books had t;"cn sold by the prize-taker to ob
tain tho means of existence.
Instances of the kind mentioned above
might be multiplied. They go to show that
w hat is called a superior education is of in
ferior valuo in getting a living. It U oft-n
argued that a soerior education does not
pra vent one from working as a mechanic or
as an unskilled laborer. It may not prevent
his woi king, but it injures his chances of
success. Tw enty years spent in the jierusal
of Itooks and in listening to lectures does
nothing toward qualifying one to use tools.
Training the intellect does not train tho
hands. Tho statistics of our so-called agri
cultural colleges show- that tho graduates do
not become fanners. Observation shows
that the girls who graduate at our freo high
schools do not work. Those who can not ob
tain situations as teachers do not succeed as
well in getting a living as girls who learned
trades or becamo proficient in housework.
Uoyswho have been educated in tho samo
clius of schools nro fitted for but few occu
pations, and tliey are generally full.
Popular Temperance Ileterage.
' Cor. Chicago Tribune.
Tho Boston thirst is being all.iv ed these
days with surprising floods of temperance
beverages. ' It is only within i-eccnt years
tn o or three at tho most that temperance
drinks hare been popular in the Hub. Tradi
tions of old colonial tlni and old New Eng
land rum have been fondly cherished; and a
man who preferred "an ncid phosphate" or an
egg cocktail' jto n punch of Medford rum
was popularly lielievoJ to be n little daft. In
the busy parts of tho city signs of ''temper
ance drinks" are now displayed in goodly
numliers; and the vendors of "beef and
celery, non-alcohol cocktails of various
nomenclature, beef-tea, and "ados" without
number, do a flourishing business.
Then tho tea-and-coffee rooms nre well
patronized by thousands who ued to take a
regular "nip" at the bar; and, taken all in
all, the temperance-drink men do more good
missionary work than dot lie prohibitionists
turning a pretty penny nt tho same time. If
you tell the Boston man that he must not
drink rum, because, if ho does, he will djo a
terrible death, only to enter a second life of
greater suffering, be will philosophically go
out and get "fuller than a tick"; if you tell
him that be will 1m nabbed by the police if
b get 'elevated," he will have a blue-coated
officer tipsy before mlduight: but if you tell
him that you know n bore there is a good
leverage which satisfies better than rum in
the long run. and is not so exiwnxive by a
long shot, he will straightway give it a trial
and stick to it if it suits his taste.
How I lie Clilnedc Uut.
Son Krancisco Chronicle.
As every Chinaman is able to cook his own
meals in first-clats stylo when occasion re
quires, bo stares amazed at the lameiitab'o
ignorance of the fcr;igmr who does not bap
Ien to bo a walking cookery-book. It is tt
meal-time that John Chinaman displays his
extraordinary ixiwurs and capacities. It
would bo strange indeed if his place were va
cant on that occasion. When n Chinamuu
has lost h.s aptite his case is pronounced
de-jicrute. The great mas of the eopIo have
only two meals a day, though laboring men
while hanl nt work insist upon three square
Considering the variety nnd quality of the
food supplied, I must say thoy ore incompar
ably better fed than the average farm laborer
I have seen in tho Unitl Kingdom. Tho
employer invariably finds his men ill food, no
matter whether h bi mandarin, trades
man, artisan or fat mar, mid his men cat at
ono common table. Bowls nnd chop, ticks
are nr ranged on the but e board. In tho cen
ter of the table are placed dishos containing
pickled llsli, boiled pork, soma salt vegeta
bles and perhaps n curd mode of lentils. The
smell of garlic and oil is enough to knock one
down. Tho men sit on stools around the
table, aud if tho weather is hot, divest them
selves of every stitch of clothing save the
tucked up pants.
When they are ready for tho fray, in
comes a servant-man, bearing a huge bucket
of rice steaming hot, tho contents of which
ho commences to shovel iu the bowls on the
table. Each man takes his chopsticks,
digs into the central dishes and fishes out
several lumjc of meat into his bowl. Raising
the bowl to his face, he pokes the rice and
meat into his gaping mouth. Tho chopsticks
are plied so rapidly and continuously, aud
mastication occupies so little part of the
process, that the whole liasiuful of rico soon
disappears as if by magic. Once, twice,
three times, perhaps, is that bowl replenished
and as quickly emptied as before. Having
reached the limits of his capacity, he takes
half a dozen whdfj from a brass hubblo-
bubblo pipe, drinks n cup or two of tea and
resumes his task, or makes tho ulgbt hideous
by unearthly snoring.

"This is a nation of gluttons."
Tho speaker was the famous Dr. Tanner.
UM people would cat and drink less there
would be no more use for the doctors. They
could all shut tip and go oil on a prolonged
"Of what practical benefit do o-j consider
your great fast has beenT
"It has been of benefit in various ways. It
has turned the attention of the people, as
well as the physicians, to tho eflicacy of fast
ing as a cure for diseases of all kinds; which
I contend it is. In my own cose, for instance
I formerly had heart disease so bad that
competent physicians who examined me pro
nounced it incurable. Since my fast I have
had no trace of it whatever. The fast was
published and talked about all over the
country, and set people to thinking. Now
many, instead of taking nauseous medicine
for sickness, simply go without food for four
or live days and find themselves cured. I
meet men frequently who say to mo that,
after reading of the results of my fast and
what I said, they adopted that plan for the
cure of sickness and now hav e no use for
physicians. I not tho theory reasonable!
Nature takes away a man's appetite when fce
is sick, evidently intending that he shall not
cat, and thus give his digestive organs a
chunce to recuperate.
"But was your only object to show the ad
vantage of fasting as a cure for disease"
"Not at all. My main idea was to disprove
tho materialistic theory of the mind or brain
upo-i the body. I held and hold that the
body and brain are dual, and that the latter
can act independently of the former. They
said that tho brain, in order to bo uctlve,
nvist Le fed upon food rich in phosphates;
that when the supply stopped it would cease
to act Tho old school of physicians who
believed this, claimed also that man could not
exist mare than twelve or fifteen days without
food. Dr. William A. Hammond said, when I
propos.-d to fast for thirty days, that 'the
man will either go crazy or dio at tho end of
miecn nays.' uut 1 proved tliat ho was
wrong. My mind was as clear at tho end as
at tho beginning of the fast, as was attested
by all the physicians who watched in?
"You say that befoto your fast fifteen dayj
was believe 1 to bo the limit to human exu
toneu without food?''
"It was, and was stated iu Carpenter's and
other physiologies. 1 do not know whether
any new physiology has been issued "since
that time, but when ono is it will probably
contain a different statement Of course,
tho old-school men had a ground for their be
lief in thecasos of nun who had diedin mines
and other places nheio thoy wero cut otr
from a supply of food. None of them lived
mopi than fifteen davs."
