WHAT IS PELLAGRA.
'Is the Strange Disease Contagious or
Is It Not?
The disease pellagra which is be
idoming more and more prevalent
baffles the skill of physicians and
"In a recent review given this
disease, South Carolina is reported
to have nearly twice as many casps
any of the other States. This may,
or may not be true; at any rate it is
certainly on the increase and is a
much dreaded disease.
"Some of the physicians of the
country are treating pellagra with
the arsenical compound discovered
by the German Scientist, Dr. Erlich,
which has aroused such interest In
the medical world?the so^alled C06.
The result so far has not demonstra
ted conclusively the efficacy of his re
medy but wihen prescribed in the ear
ly stages of the disease an Improve
ment is noted In the patient.
"Neither has there been any satis
factory explanation as to the cause of
pellagra. A recent theory is that
corn whiskey distilled from spoiled
corn is a prolific source of the dis
ease, another, and one which is most
generally accepted Is that It is comr
municated by flies. This calls for
more carefullness in keeping clear of
"The majority of physical are un
certain as to whether or not pellagra
is a contagious or infectious disease.
Johns Hopkins believes that it Is cer
tainly infectious if not contagious.
However, undertakers have made up
their minds that it is communicable,
and they are now taking care to
handle the bodies of those dying from
pellagra with rubber gloves.
"One of the principal reasons for
believel-ig pellagra to be contagious
is that several cases have been known
to break out in the same family; in
deed it is seldom that it confines it
self to one person in the family or
"We have recontly read a letter
from Johns Hopkins In which the
statement is made that they believe
that Dr. Babcock. of Columbia knows
as much about pellagra as any one
Good for More Than Twenty Years.
In reply to the question of the
Columbus Enquirer-Sun. "Will Bry
an retire?" The Houston Post ans
wers: "Oh, yes: every night, but is
up bright and early soon after the
Pullman porter calls him in the
' morning." That is really one of the
cleverest things Bailey has said for
a long time, and when subjected to
careful analysis shows, among other
things, in the first place that Mr.
r?ryan docs "roJre," tr.at is -"o say
goes to bed, and in the second place
that, he is so abundant and constant
In his efforts to spread -himself all
over the country that he frequently
soes to bed in a sleeping car, which
means, of course, that he" is ever
mindful of the interests of the peo
ple, and ever ready at night to serve
them whenever he is called in the
morning, having a clear conscience,
'?oid of offense except towards a few
of his most sincere admirers, whom
he does not understand, and not un
derstanding will not forgive. We
have no doubt that he sleeps . He is
fifteen years older now than he was
when he began his great crusade
against the established order, and
yet he is as bright and fresh as a
claisy with every new day that, comes;
good, we 6hould say, for at least
twenty years more of strenuous pur
suit.?Richmond Times-Dispatch. |
TRAILED BY BLOOD-HOUNDS
I Went Straight From Scene to the
House of Suspect.
The bloodhounds from the County
chaingang reached St George three
hours after the dastard attempt was
made by some one a little after ten
o'clock on Tuesday night to assault a
lady in her bed room in that town
and was carried immediately near the
window from which the suspect leap
ed after having been freightened by
the screams of the woman. Little
difficulty was had In getting the trail,
led by a circuitous route to the home
of the negro, who had been previous
ly apprehended and lodged in jail_
After 'havng reached the home of the
negro the dogs then trailed to the jail
where the negro had been previously
taken. The Sheriff would not open
the doors of the jail for the dogs
to enter because of the possibility
that the negro would fall into unoffi
cial hands and be roughly dealt with.
CURE FOR PELLAGRA.
Clinton Physician Claims to Cure
Everybody ought to feel an inter
est in Mr. Dedmond's pellagra cure,
ns there are several eases !n and neai
Clinton which have :>een cured, we
learn. Hearing of the case of a lady
friend near this city who was said to
have been cured of this dread dis
ease, we called 'her up over the phone
and ased ;her if such v/ere the case.
She replied that it was true; that her
disease was pronounced pellagra by
two physicians who treated her for it,
but she finally went to Mr. Dedmond
and procured some of the medicine
and in .'our days' time she felt as well
as she ever felt in her life, and that
she considers herself entirely cured.
Now, for the sake of suffering hu
manity, Mr. Dedmond ought to be
encouraged; and the doctors ought
to give his remedy a trial.

That. William Jennings Bryan is
the world's greatest platform orator
is an acknowledged faot. While men
may differ with his political views
they are unanimous in according to
his eloquence the palm of preemi

circle of the great masters of hu
man speech. He possesses every fac

iginal, his scope of vision complete
and all-absorbing, his analysis pene
trating, microscopic and logical, his
oiction strong and graceful, his ut
terance full of the charm of the ex

above all he possesses that magnet
