WAR BETWEEN MICROBES.
A Startling: Theory Advanced Ily a Noted
The first impression of tho roador who
learns that a Russian dootor is curing
diphthcr a by inoculating tho patient
with crys'polas is that a joke is being
perpetrated. Tho story sounds like that
Eastern talo of a tyrant who put out tho
eyes of his subjects when they wont
lamo, on tho theory that tho greator
sulToring would rollevo tho lesser. Hut
in thoso days of bacteriology it is un?
safe to dorido any new theory becanso
it does not barmonizo with preconcoivod !
notions. Dr. Batchinsky says that bo- |
twoon tho microbe of diphtheria and tho
microbe of erysipelas there is an antag?
onism, a sort, of irreprossiblo conflict
Where one flourishes tho other perishes,
and as the erysipolas microbe is tho
more powerful of tho two it is tho diph?
theria microbo that goes to the wall.
Whether microbe cats microbe, or tho
higher bred insect dies of disgust at tho
appearanco on tho scene of his meaner
fcllow-crcaturo, docs not appear. All
that ho avors Is that when bo inocu?
lated a diphtheritic patient with tho
poison of tho erysipelas ? microbo tho
diphtheria gradually disappoared and
j tho artificial erysipolas yieldod readily
to the proper romodios. In this way ho
is said to have curod a numhor of pa?
tients, and ho advises his confreres to
try it whenever they have a severe caso
of diphtheria. Wo nocd hardly re?
mark that tho faculty will roquirc the
newspaper reports of Dr. 1 latchinsky's
performances to bo confirmed boforo
they adopt his practice. It is worth
looking into. Even the stoutest be?
lievers in tho bacterial theory admit
that they arc powerless to combat the
bacillus?to beard tho lion in bis den,
tho Douglas in his hall. When Dr.
Koch discovered, as ho believed, tho '
bacillus of consumption people rejoiced,
because they reckoned that now tho \
enemy was located it would bo easy to ,
exterminate him. But this proved Im?
practicable. Any gas that was power- !
' fnl enough to destroy the insect was
I pretty sure to destroy tho patient as
j well! Quito a number of interesting
' experiments were made with various
! carbureted gases, but no physician was
bold enough to introduce thoni into tho
; lungs in the face of warnings that tho
' attempt would be fatal. Thus Dr.
j Koch's discovery lefL matters pretty
much whore they were. But if this Rus
? slan medico has really discoverod a
bacillus that feeds upon other bacilli
I or exterminates tliom as tho white man
has exterminated the Indian, by tho
more force of contact, tho faculty should [
I surely test tho discovory. Perhaps the
i erysipelas bacillus may be as fatal to
I the microbe of consumption as ho is to
Ithe microbe of diphtheria. Perhaps ho
may cultivate an appotito for other dis?
ease germs. If so. even allopaths will
I not despise this new application of the
rule nimilia similibv*. As a matter of
principle thoro would bo nothing now
in tho discovery. Almost all med?
icines are poisons. That which saves
life in one doso causes death in another.
There is no more useful medicine in tho
modern pharm acoptuia than arsenic;
yot three out of five women who poison
( themselves do so with arsenic. .Strych?
nine is a terrible poison, hut mix vomlca ;
I is a most valuable drug. In Greece
criminals wero sometimes forced to take
i their own lives by drinking a cup of
hellebore: we In our day cure many dis
j eases of tho stomach with voratrum. If
j a drug which destroys lifo under given
conditions saves it in others, why may i
not a disease germ which is noxious in
ono set of circumstances prove benefic?
ial when the circumstances are changed j
and tho exhibition oT thegerm regulated
by scientific principles'.' Tho last word
has not been said in bacteriology.
' Physicians who deride it say that Its
! professors mistake the effect for the
' cause, and ascribe disease to animal or
ganlzations which procoed from the dis- [
j ease itself. It may be so. Rut the lay ?
world remembers that the progenitors
! of these same physicians denied the cir
I dilation of tho blood to tho last day of
their lives. Wo owe to Koch and his
' co-workers the knowledge of the fact of |

OVER THE TEA-CUPS.
Ulltrr Wendell Holme? on American Social
and Literary Independence.
I confess that I am not in sympathy
with some of tho movements that ac?
company tho manifestations of Amori
can social and literary independence. I
do not like tho assumption of titles of j
Lords and Knights by plain citizens of j
a country which prides itsolf on recog?
nizing situplo manhood and woman- i
hood as sufficiently entitled to respect I
without those unnecessary additions. I I
do not liko any better tho familiar and, j
as it seems to me, rudo way of speaking ?
of our fellow-citizens who are entitled
to tho common courtesies of civilized
socioty. 1 never thought it dignified or
oven proper for a President of tho .
United States to call himsolf, or to ho
called by others. "Frank" Pierce. In
tho iirst place i had to look in a
biographical dictionary to lind out
whether his baptismal namo was Frank
lin, or Francis, or simply Frank, for I
think children aro sometimes christened
with this abbreviated name. Rut it is
too much in tho stylo of Cowpor's un
Tho man Whn bails you Tom or.lack.
And proves by thumping on your buck
How lie cstooms your merit.
I should not like our past Chief Mag?
istrates spoken of as .lack Adams or dim
Madison, and it would have been only
as a political partisan that I should
havo recounciled myself to "Tom" .let- \
ferson. So, in spito of "lien" .lonson, I
"Tom" Moore, and ".lack" Shoppard, I j
prefer to speak of a fellow-citizen al- I
ready venerable by his years, entitled
to respect by useful services to his
country, and recognized by many as tho
prophet of a now poetical dispensation,
with tho customary title of adults rath?r
than by tho free and easy schoolboy ab?
breviation with which he introduced j
himsolf many years ago to the public.
As for his rhapsodies, Number Seven,
our "cracked Teacup," says they sound
to him like "fugues played upon a b:g
organ which has boon struck by light?
ning." So far as concerns literary inde?
pendence, if we understand by tbatterm
tho getting rid of our subjection to
british criticism. Buch as it was In tho
days when the question was asked,
"Who reads an American book'.'*' wo
may consider it pretty well established.
If it means dispensing with punctua?
tion, coining words at will, solf-rcvola
tion unrestrained by a sense of what, is
decorous, declamations in which every
thing is glorified without being ideal?
ized, "poetry" in which the reader must
make the rhythms which the poet, has
not made for him, then I think wo bad
better continue literary colonists. I
shrink' from a lawless Indopondonco to
which all the virile energy and tramp?
ling audacity of Mr. Whitman faiJ to
rcconcilo me. But thero Is room for
everybody and overy thing in our lingo

four hoofs in tho air; but he likes it.,
and it won't harm us. So let him roll?

FOOLISH AND CONCEITED.
The LOSS it Man Knows the Moro He Talk?
The less a man knows the more bo
talks about it. If "shadows murmur
where deeps are dumb," they are like,
human beings who have small minds
and avo great talkers. The man who
talks continuously, and who is not in
intellect, above the average man, must
say many foolish things. Tho foolish
man does not know when to keep his
month shut. If ho did bo would still bo
foolish, but be would not say foolish
things. An old Alliance man onco had
a boy w ho lacked good sense. The boy
may be a man now and In politics. Tho
old man used to take his son to town
with him whon he went with a team to
sell a load of wood, and when noon came
and the old man felt like taking a nip
he would leave the boy In the public
square, saying: "Stay right here with
the team, Ezra. Don't, you say a word,
and nobody'H ever find out you are a
fool." Ry and by people would coino
along and commence to dicker for a
trade. On one such occasion a man
said: "How much for the wood'.'" The
boy smiled stupidly and said never a
word. Tho man spoke again, and
louder: "How much do you ask for
your load of wood?" Tho boy was
still dumb, but soon burst into
tears, and Iho surprised man said:
"That boy is certainly a fool!" Tho
father catno along about that timo and
the boy sobbed; "They've found mo out,
dad, 1 never said a word, and the man
said 1 was a fool!" There is always hope
for a boy of that sort. He knows his
weakness, and that is something. Tho
man who thinks ho knows it all, and
knows much less than many others is
most dangerous, lie will tackle any
subject and make his hoarers very tired.
It would bo a great thing if men, in
their eagerness for notoriety, would re?
frain from meddling with religion. Hut
so sum as a man has brains and religion
in inverse ratio with an enormous con?
ceit, knowing ho can securo notoriety to
himsolf in no other way, ho tries to say
something "startling" in religion. A
Baptist thus afflicted recently declared
there is no devil, and nowa Presbyterian
professor in a theological seminary de?
clares .lob is a myth and the book of Job
was written by a Jewish poet during his
exile. His only reason for suoh asser?
tion is that he has examined the book

decided that a man suffering as Job was
could not have uttered such lofty poot
