Conclusions Dnswn I'raut the Most He-cent
llrae.rrhes Mot Hereditary, but
Infectious It la In the Air.
Prof. Tyndnll has an article in the
current fortnightly, London, ou "Tho
Origin and Propagation nnd Prevention
of Phthisis." or pulmonary consumption,
nnd dilates upon tho latest investigations,
which nro of great interest
and possibly of the utmost importance.
Ho draws attention U tha researches
of Dr. Cornel, a pupil of Koch, who tins
coma to tho conclusion that this
disease is not hereditary, ns
has been generally supposed,
but that It Is generated by infection.
Hereditary weakness of the lung4 Prc
disposes to nny pulmonary affection,
but not specially to this form. Dr. Cornet
says that tho dried sputum secreted
by a sufferer is reduced to dust-and
mingles with tho nlr which is breathed
by healthy peoplu, who thereupon
receive Into their iungs tho germs of
tho disease. Dr. Kcch coincides with
Dr. Cornet's theory, and Prof. Tyndnll
gives his own experiences in cases
which seem to strongly support Cornet's
Dlsl for nts Family's
