From Our Rezu'.ar Correspondent.
Pahis, France, June 11, 1879.
Just one year' ago, when I saw for the
first time the race9 for the Grand Prix,
there Tas Marshal McMahon eeated in the
most prominent place on the Grand Stand
surrounded by Shah of Persia, who ap
peared to be dressed in a gentleman's gor
geous morning wrapper and smoking enp;
Aruedtus. Ex Kinz of Spain; and other
royal personages. To day President M
Grcvey has the place of honor and other
royalties surround him. Frenchmen aDd
Frenchwomen enjoy the race just the same,
no matter whether a Republican or Imperi
nliflt president occupies the purple pavilion
Gay, enthusiastic, art lovinjr. excitement
craving, sublime, selfish, grandly contempt
ible French people ! To see them and to
know them is to open an entirely new vol
ume of human nature.
It may be well to remind your readers
that the- Grand Prix dates only
from 1803. Before that time foreign
horses could not compete for prizes
iu France, or rather they could not carry orT
any prize. When the Jockey club was ap
plied to on the subject they declared that
their statues forbade them to let a six pence
bo diverted from their funds in favor of a
foreign horse. The dtSculty was turned
by M. de Moray, who contrived that the
grand prize of 100,000 Franc9 should be
given half by the city of Taris and the
other half by the five principal railway
companies. The idea was just, no less than
ingenious, both gain by the influx of visi
tors. The first grand prize was won by an
English horse Ranger and a great outcry
was made on the score that the good peo
ple of Paris were simply was making a pres
ent of several thousand pounds a year ' to
perfide albion. But the second year's prize
was carried of by M. Dolamorrc's Ver
mouth, and of the sixteen that have been
run for, up to and including to-day, nine
have been won by French animals.
To come to the event of the day, nm1 to
begin with the weather, which has so im
mense an effect on such meetings. It look
ed black and threatening all the morning
and at half pa3t one, just when the ma
jority of visitors were preparing to btart,
there came on a sudden and violent storm.
The weather then remained lulr until some
time after the grand prize had been run,
and it was only those who waited to see
the racing out who were caught
in a second down-pour as violent,
oa the first. The course was unusually
well filled to-day find I fancy there were
more dngs on the bill than are generally
to be seen. As to the grand stand it
could not have held more people. Not
only were all the tribunes densely packed,
but the entire space was occupied by a
compact throng, and half the numbers in
the weighing-ground can have seen no
more of the great race than if they had re
gained in Paris. The president's tribune
was thoroughly well filled. M. Grivy tat
'in the middle ot the front row, looking, it
must be confessed, ns if he
did not at all like his prominent position,
and as though he did not care the least in
the world about what was going on. Mad
ame and Mdlle. Griy were, of rourae.
then-, together with the ladies of several
ministers, and I rIho remarked the prs
enco of Count Benni, -Prince Orlulf uud
several other ambaxwidors. As it i cer
tain to be stated that the Prince of Wales
was there, it in well to note that, if his
royal highnes ' was conspicuous at the
. Longchamps race-course to-day, it was by
hit absence. It is known, of course, that
tho prince never attends Huuday raccK,
hut some of the French papers give such
circumstantial accounts ot the disposal of
Jiii time when he is in Paris, that, if he
. l a - 1 1
manages to bo in all the placei he is sup
posed to attend, he must, indeed, have tho
rift of ubiquity. Tho bell ran? at the ap
pointed time, and tho courso was speedily
cleared, but a long delay occurred be
fore the horses came one -by one
on tho course. After the canter tho animals
walked past tho tribunes in Indian file, and
having reached the- starting-place, to the
right of the weighing ground, the start was
at once given. All round the course, up
the hill, and down again us far as tho
straight run home tho running was made by
Jourangelle, the stable companion of Nil
bienne, followed closely by M. Fould's
A vermes, but when they reached the level
the pack was so close together that they
might, to uso the expressive phrase I heard
uttered oa all sides, have been covered
with a handkerchief. The colors of La
grange, Blanc and Fauld were then seen to
the fore, and Flavis II., Saltiador. and Nu-
bienne, came on so closely together that the
issue seemed doubtful in the extreme. The
. - , I..V1.. I 1
struggle mdeca was remarKauiy nans, uiu
Nubienne succeeded in passing Saltciador
by a neck, Flavis II following scarcely a
head behind. Seldom has a race been
more hotly contested, and, although the re
sult disappointed the expectations of the
majority of spectators, the entrance of Nu-
bienne into the weighing-ground was
greetod by warm applause. At all events,
the English horso had not carried ol!' the
prize, and this was a great consolation to
French losers. Not that Xubienne had not
been backed; M. Blanc, his owner, has
been so lucky of late that many had faith
in his star.
The other races had little comparative
interest, and immediately after the Grand
Prize had been run began the gradual re
turn homeward. To those who left the
course it seemed as though all Pans haa
come out to meet them. All through the
Bois and all the way up the Avenue de 1'
Imptratrice one was met by an unbroken
line of vehicle, private carriages, with la
dies who had been atraid of the weather,
being in the majority. As to the champs
Elvsies, the sight there was really
remarkable, each side cf the pathway being
occupied by people who sat and stood in
rows eight or ten deep. There they sat and
stood patiently for hours, and until the
storm sent all but the bravest flying to
watch the return de courses, and I um not
sure that they had not the best of it. The
Boulevards are naturally crowded to-night
by a throng of loungers, who scarcely know
where to pass the first summer night of the
season, and for whom the exceptional
gaieties of Mabille will doubtless prove a

AND HOW TO SIXTRE EXEMPTION THERE
As scarlet fever and diphtheria are pre
vailing to a considerable extent in some of
our neighboring towns, I thought a short
communication on the subject might be ac
ceptable reading to the majority of your
The late Dr. G. B. Beebee, of Chicago,
just before his death, communicated to
the "Tribune'' of that city, a very interest
ing article in regard to the cure by newly
discovered remedies, of those terribly de
structive infantile diseases, dipptheria and
It is only in recent years that the fact
has been established that those diseases are
very contagious; and scarcely anything has
been known as to the processes by which the

Pasteur, the learned French investigator,
who with the aid of the microscope, was
able to demonstrate that the Toruia, or
yeast plant, (upon which the fermentation
of bread and beer depends, is a vegetable
growth, from germs or seeds planted and
springing up, as in other forms
of vegetable life') appeared to have
given the first clue to these investi
gations, which seem to promise an abi.ity
to the medical faculty, for the first time, to
cope successfully with those formidable
By another series of experiments, un

that most animal tissues exposed to the

The next point was how to destby those

by magic, the germs of those OXious
parasites which induce such fatal diirders.
Although readily soluble, the nlphito
lacked energy to render it at all pies ef

its combination with Carbolic kid a
more powerful antiseptic would do the
work. Combined, tho article is caled the

So much for theory. Now for tli prac
tical results as cited in the commutation
referred to. At Montague, Michigai dur
ing the winter of 1S77, the scarlet fever
prevailed as an epidemic. In the families J
of James Daltou and three or four o his
neighbors, including nineteen chjdren,
where the sulpho-carbolato was usee as a
preventive, all escaped the disease, aid no
other family had tie like good fortun. At
Maplewood, one of the suburbs of Cncago
the scarlet fever made severe inroads upon
many families ; but four or five f amies in
the midst of the epidemic influence enjoy
ed entire immunity by using this milicine
as a preventive.
From Toledo, lnd, where in the begnning
of lust winter, diphtheria prevailed o an
alarming extent and the physicians were
powerless, a father of a family writes mder
date of January the 18th, that the to of
this remedy had fulriled all expedition
as a preventive of the dread dse:ise.
In concluding his longand carelull' pre
pared statement. Dr. Beebee says : "These
examples could be multiplied ad libtum ;
but enough has been said to indicat, at
least, that tins aireut is worth a still more
extended application, and I earnestly rcc
ommend it to the uttention of the Boa"ds of
Health in all our large cities. In brkiging
forward this mode of treatment, I g:ve it
first to the profession, and afterwards to
the public, desiring that my name should
appear only so far as it might commend
the treatment to those who micrht have
confidence in me." Respectfully, etc.,
