DR. ENGLISH 6H0W8 UP THE THORAX
The last two of an Instructive series of
lectures -were delivered at University Hall,
Sixth street, yesterday afternoon. The first
as by Prof. S. H. Stevens, M. D., his sub
ject being "How to Prepare Medicines."
The speaker began by saying that the lec
tures might not be popular but they cer
tainly were scientific That meant that
ihey embraeed a plan of systematic knowl
edge on the subject. He said, in substance:
"To begin with, all food Is medicine, all
medicine is poison, and all poison is medi
cine; in other words, everything is a poison
and nothing is poison. All medicines come
primarily from the vegetable kingdom,
althoughwe also use mercury and silver,
and a very peculiar fact in regard to the
vegetable medicines is that they all consist
of charcoal and water.
The lecturer then proceeded to explain
the various chemical classifications of the
primary substances, and describing the pro
cess of baking a lump ot dough and the
different chemical actions it underwent,
saying that wheaten flour was the best for
making bread, only on account of the
glucose it contains. The value of this
glucose Is found in its tenacity or ability to
hold together other elements.
In this connection the speaker narrated
an incident of the burning of a starch fac
tory in England. After the fire a workman
X FECUXIAK, YELLOWISH J5UBSTAKCE,
which he took home and found that he had
a soluble gum. The discovery of this gum
led to a complete revolution of the calico
industry, the result being that calico be
came much cheaper.
The speaker continued: ''One hundred
years ago the physicians were not able to
give medicine properly, as alkaloids were
unknown. To-day, the discovery of this
wonderful principle is the basic substance
of nearly all salts. Indeed, I don't know
but what all we eat or drink might be
traced down to this alkaloidal principle."
The professor concluded his lecture by ex
plaining a few interesting chemical points
in regara to the boiling of tea and the toast
ing of bread.
Dr. W. T. English followed, and spoke
on the "Thorax and Its Contents," saying
"The thorax is that part of the body rep
resented by the ribs, and contains two out
of the three vital organs the heart and the
lungs. At first there appears to be a lack
of protection to these important bodies on
account of the thin casement of the chest."
The speaker then went on to explain the
positions and formations of the various parts
of the thorax, enumerating the true ribs as
distinguished from the false or floating ribs;
the inter-cortal muscles and the cartilages
of the back and their connection with the
spinal column. In this connection he re
marked that one of the most serious acci
dents that could befall a person was the
OF THE FIKST BIB,
since about 40 different ligaments and
muscles are gathered about this point, thus
making an injury to it a probable injury to
some ot these surrounding ligaments. After
describing the air tube or trachea, together
with its branches, the left and right bronchii,
he pointed out the several advantages which
the thorax has to resist injuria. The chest
is so shaped that any blow of a knife, which
is not exceedingly well directed, is liable to
glance off, or at the best, only injure
an outside tissue. From this the
speaker branched off and made some very
good points in regard to the wearing of
corsets and heavy wraps and overcoats. In
regard to corsets, the doctor said that if the
wearing of them was continued for two
generations more he would not at all be sur
prised to find that they were a necessity.
The lecture was concluded by an exposi
tion of an ideal chest, which is very rare
among our population.
Beiore the meeting ended, Dr. Enelish
extended his thanks to the audience for their
attendance all through the series and (or the
interest they had shown in the success of

Geakd BAPiDb, Mich., March 30.
Marshal Waters has returned from the up
per peninsula to consult with Judge Sever
ence before proceeding to extremes with
squatters, homesteaders and pre-emptors
who have settled in the Iron rivsr re
gion on lines owned by the Lake Superior
Ship Canal and Iron Company. The com
pany in a recent suit secured judgment by
default against 23 settlers and Marshal
Waters went up to evict them. "When he
arrived the company insisted that he should
not only evict the settlers, but should also
destroy their houses and barns.
The marshal did not feel like going to
such lengths and has returned to consult
authorities. The settlers, when the case
was pending, thought they had an attorney
but he failed to appear. They are willing
to move out, and will submit'if the marshal
destrovs their houses, but if the company
dare to do it, there will be war.
