Grant had left the army because he
could not support his family on his

Louis, became a real estate agent
without much financial success, and
in 1860 moved his family to Galena,
UL, where he became a clerk in his
father's leather store.
At the outbreak of the Civil war he
drilled a company organized at Ga

THE development of a few cases
of Asiatic cholera in the gov
ernment's hospitals in New
York harbor, as the result of
infection brought from abroad,
resulted in calling to public attention
two intensely interesting discoveries
made in recent years in connection
with the disease.
The first is that the ailment ls not
nearly as likely to spread in centers
where it ls not actually epidemic as
has generally been believed hereto
fore; the second is the fact that
there are persons who are "cholera
carriers," accounting in many in
stances for a longer incubation period
than the formerly accepted one, which
was from "a few hours to five days.
These gains in knowledge should
have a most reassuring effect on the
public mind. It has been learned that
cholera is not carried along by the
wind; and persons who have been in
the vicinity of cholera patients do not
carry the germs of cholera away with
them in their clothing unless such
clothing has been contaminated by in
fected discharges from the sufferers.
The disease must be taken in
through the mouth, so that, although
extremely virulent and fatal, it is only
infectious in the same manner in
which typhoid and some of the other
fevers are transmissible.
The recognition of a class of per
sons known as "cholera carriers" has
resulted in a determination to extend
the detention of all persons suspected
of having been in direct contact with
the disease until its presence or ab
sence can be certified to after search
ing bacteriological tests. This ex
tended detention period goes a long
way toward eliminating the danger of
permitting the disease to gain a foot
hold within our gates.
The disease-fighting machine built
up by Dr. Alvah H. Doty, the health
officer of the port of New York, in his
long years of service has kept the city
and,, to a lcrge extent, the entire
country remarkably free from import
Asiatic cholera, a special irritant
poison, which acts upon the gastro
intestinal mucous membrane, is re
garded by some as a contagious dis
ease which progressively loses its
virulent qualities. It is a native of
Hindustan thought to consist of cer
tain microscopic germs which, on be
ing received into the system, propa
gate their kind, cause an intestinal
flux and destroy the epithelium. It
is believed by many that these minute
bodies are products of the rice plants
on the banks of the Ganges.
Rapid depression of all the mental
ard physical faculties is an early
symptom of most cases of cholera.
The senses are irritable, the head
aches and is confused, there is a dis
inclination to sleep, the limbs totter
under the weight of the body, the
pulse is frequent and feeble and the
skin ls cool and bedewed with per
spiration. As the attack advances the
patient falls into a dull, listless and
motionless state due to the exhaus
tion of all the faculties of the mind
and body. Blood accumulates and
stagnates in the veins, giving to the
hands and feet, nose and limbs a
bluish, leaden or violet tint like that
of a cyanotic child.
The cause of cholera is unknown.
A high atmospheric temperature is
everywhere associated with its preva
lence and it always attains Its great
est intensity during the hot months
of the year. It is most apt to be se
vere when excessively dry weather
follows a wet period. Some physicians
have thought cholera poison to be
of an aerial nature, but its diffusion
has no relation whatever to the ve
locity or the direction of the wind.
Its progress has never exceeded that
of a man on land or water, nor has lt
ever taken a direction different from
that of commercial or military move
ments. There is reason to believe the
poison does not enter the system
through the lungs or through any
other channel than the gastro-intesti
According to Dr. Doty, cholera is
not contracted in the same manner as
smallpox, measles, etc., but through
the mouth, by Infected food or drink
containing the specific organisms of
the disease, or by the hands or arti
cles contaminated by discharges from
the intestinal tract of those who arc
carriers of this organism.
Although lt is believed that the ord!
nary period of incubation of cholera
Is from one to five days, recent in
vestigation has conclusively shown
that an indefinite and prolonged pe
riod may Intervene between the time
when the specific organism is taken
into the system of a person and the
appearance of the symptoms of the
disease. Furthermore, persons known
as carriers, in whose intestinal tract
the organism is present, may act as
media of infection and transmit the
disease to others and still remain well.
The existence of cholera carriers has
recently been very effectively con
firmed and lt is explained that the
organism may not be stirred into ac
tivity so as to produce cholera in
some of these carriers unless excited
thereto by a debauch or some other
irregularity of conduct.
The danger of the introduction of
cholera from one port to another is
not so much by typical cases as the
mild or Irregular ones, which often
pass unrecognized. Cholera may ap
pear in the form of a simple diar
rhoea, which excitea^;ttle or no sus
picion, or it may ap^fr in a mere ob

other affection. While certain articles

subsequently act as media of Jifec

There was some agitation in New
York last year as the result of the
presence of a few cholera cases at the
quarantine station, but the last real
cholera scare was late in the summer
In the 60 years preceding 1S92 there
were five epidemics of cholera In this
country, resulting in 15.000 deaths.
The first outbreak was in 1832, the
second in 1834, the third' in 1848, the
fourth in 1854, and the fifth in 1865.
Asiatic cholera attacked with great
virulence the 1,000 soldiers stationed
at Fort Dearborn (Chicago) in 1832,
the first year in which the East In
dian destroyer appeared in North
America, and 200 of them were ad
mitted to hospitals in eight or nine
days. The troops at this point were
young and in good physical condition,
but the poison germs had been brought
to the country in immigrant ships and
they had found victims In many Cana
dian and United States cities. Fatal
ities at the fort were large, but physi
cians by hard work got some 700 of
the men on their feet again, and in
September of that year they were or
dered to march to the Mississippi
river in the neighborhood of the pres
ent city of Dubuque. They had not
traveled 50 miles, however, before
cholera broke out in their ranks again
and before the command could reach
the river the percentage of deaths
was as great as it had been at the
France's cholera death roll in 1832
was 120,000, and of this vast number
7.000 passed away in Paris in 18 days.
The disease crossed the channel to
Great Britain in the spring and sum
mer of that year and sent thousands
to their graves in England, Wales and
Ireland. From Liverpool, Cork, Lim
erick and Dublin there sailed five
steamers filled with emigrants, many
of them having taken flight from the
epidemic. Cholera broke out on all
of them and 179 of their passengers
died on the voyage to Quebec. The
living and the dying were hurried by
the steamer Voyageur to Montreal,
where those who were able to travel
were scattered up the St Lawrence
and to a half hundred Inland Canadian
and United States towns. Almost in
the time that it takes to tell the story
cholera broke out at Kingston, To
ronto and Niagara Falls, and a com
pany of United States soldiers aboard
the steamer Henry Clay took the
death-dealing epidemic to Detroit,
whence it spread along the great
lakes to almost every place of 100
people as far as the "Soo."

By Dr. Frank Grane
Since the dawn of preaching we
preachers have been threatening rich
men with our right fist-and extend
ing to them our left palm. It is hard
ly to be wondered at that we find dif
ficulty in being taken seriously.
And our advice has been so confus
ing that we have not had much effect.
For now we exhort the youth to all
the virtues, giving as an inducement
the assurance that thus they will be
enabled to get on; and now again we
turn to those that have gotten on and
warn them of the danger of riches. It
might as well be asked, if riches be
dangerous, why acquire them; and if
virtues lead to riches, are they really
It may be well, therefore, to set
down a few common sense facts In re
riches and the relation of the same to
the morai values.
In the first place, monej is simply
the token or sign of our common hum
an wants. It means power, power
over others, power to make our per
sonality felt No wonder we want lt.
Again it means liberty. Poverty is
a curse. It ties the hands. It binds
the mind. It narrows the soul. One
who has to sweat ten hours a day for
bread has no time nor strength lert
to develop the higher part of himself.
Money means also a full life. We
can gratify our cravings, whether they
be for beer or art, for Paris gowns or
Wagner music. With money we have
a chance to grow; without it we are
Money, therefore, is simply concen
trated-we might say canned-iuman
It naturally follows that it Is gooa
or bad, never of Itself, but only as giv
ing opportunity to Its possessor. Here,
then, we have the morai gist of the
whole matter: money is simply-op
It unlocks the door and bids the
cramped and chafing passion go and
do its will. It liberates desire. Hence
it simply emphasizes a man. If he is
good he can now be better, having
more scope; if bad he can, and prob
ably will, be worse. If Idle and use*
less, he becomes a living fountain of
Idleness and uselessness, poisoning
So, money ls like any other gift; as
beauty, which adds ?ower to the per
son; or genius, which multiplies the
efficiency of the mind and hand; or
position, for kinship magnifies a com
mon man to heroic proportions, in his
influence on other men.
Now, the sole relation of morals to
power of any kind is this: that the
moral sense adds to powei*-responsi
The root of any genuine moral feel
ing is altruism. 'Given any desire, lt
becomes moral as it takes a direction
toward the welfare of other people;
it is Immoral exactly In proportion as
it disregards others and looks only to
Wicked people, therefore, are" those
who live, think, and do for self alone;
and that whether poor or rich. Who
ever says. "I would like to be rich,
for I could do so much good with my
money." should examine himself and
ask what good he is doing with the
little he has. It's all a matter of re
lation. If one is not helpful and lib
eral on $40 a month, he would not be
so on 54.000 a month.
In the ultimate realm of morals
there are no commandments; there is
only one to.st-do I live for myself or
for others; ara I altruistic or egocen
The dawdling smart set, flitting
from bridge to matinee, from theater
to bedizened restaurant, from the club
to the horse race, are wicked; but no
wickeder than the better poor whe
want to lead such a life, and who
curse their lot because their selfish
ness is bound and chained.
To the real man, therefore, riches
means nothing at all, as to his char
acter; lt simply means an opening to
give vent to his character. And a
clear-eyed soul, that spes and realiz-s
what responsibility means, ls never
eager for power and opportunity, it ls
easier to be good in moderate means
than In riches for the principal reason
that lt Is easier to bear a small than
a great load of responsibility. "It ls
hard for a rich man to enter the king
dom of heaven," just because a rich
man to be moral must be great And,
unfortunately, great souls are scarce
among great fortunes.
The greatness of Jesus was not in
his wisdom, magnetism, nor ethical
perception, but In the fact that he was
utterly altruistic; that is, he used all
his powers not to advance himself but
to help others. His tormentors un
wittingly told the truth, and stated un
knowingly his very secet, when, as he
hung on the cross, they wagged their
heads at him and cried:
"He saved others; himself he can
'There is forgiveness with thee thal
thou mayest be feared."-Paa. 130:4.

The book is full of the doctrine ol
forgiveness. As for God, "He delight

to develop in man hope and help and
health God floods the sacred book
with promises of pardon. As a man
reviews his life or any part of it he Is
filled with regret and anxiety which
sometimes and often turn into des

Word arrests his attention and shines
like a brilliant star in the midst of his
darkness: Forgiveness. Turning page
after page of the Divine revelation he
finds it-in the foregleams of ritual,
in the radiance of prophecy, in the
face and smiles of the Divine Master
-Jesus our Saviour. Even his cross
is changed into a star like the "star of
