WASHINGTON, Sept. 25. The Bu
reau of Medicine and Surgery of the
Nay ii almost ready to announce that
inercmy i- a specific for tuberculoiis.
The accepted theory of the medical pro
f'?ioii is that there is no drug that
can be given a turbereulosis patient that
will act specifically upon the bacilli
th.it create the worst scourge mankind
The navy doctors believe in mercury

who was given the treatment when he
wa- s-uppo-eil to be dying. Forty ca-es
hae been uinler mercurial treatment
in the Naval Hospital at New Fort
Lon, l.a- Animas, Col.
Surgeon B.irto:i Lisle Wright made
the di-coery. He is continuing experi
ments with the new treatment under
the direction of .Medical Director C.
T. Hibbett. Iteports of their work have
jn-t been published by the Bureau of
Medicine and Surgery.
Surgeon Wright Convinced.
Surgeon-tieneral 1. M. Ilixey. the head
of the bureau, in presenting the report
of Medical Diieetor Hibbett and Sur
geon Wright, makes no expression of
opinion, but Surgeon Wright in pre
senting the results of his work says:
'I am convinced that in mercury we
hae a specific for tuberculosis and that
the only question remaining to be de
cided is: How long will it take to ef
fect a cure! During the administration
of the drug the well-established rules
for the treatment of tuberculosis cm-
biacing fresh air, rest, proper food,
proper sanitary surroundings, attention
to personal hygiene, the aoidance ot
all excesses of animal appetites, ami
the selection of climate must be carried
"Anions the -10 cases under mercurial
treatment is one with the most ad
duced pulmonary lesions entire lung

lower left lobe, posteriorly, who was
admitted January 25, 190S (temper

to lte in a "lying condition. He now
weighs 123 pounds, which is but four
pounds below his normal weight."
Surgeon Wright discovered the value
of mercury in consumption cases by ac
cident. His observations led him to be
lieve that the mercury administered as
a specific for the disease caused by
treponema pallidum created the im
provement in the pulmonary tubercular
lesions in the cases under his care.
Instead of administering the mercury
through the mouth it is injected into
the muscular tissue, so there is no de
rangement of the stomach and intes
tines. Drug is Specific.
After a tour of sea duty Dr. Wright
resumed the experiments in December.
1007, Surgeon W. II. Bucher assisting
him. So confident is Surgeon Wright
that he has found a specific for tuber
culosis that he writes:
"If the marked improvement in the
tubercular lesions which we have men
tioned is due to the clearing up of the
treponema pallidum infection, then by
all means let us inoculate our tubercu
lar patients with treponema pallidum
and treat the resulting disease, with the
knowledge that as it is being cured, the
tuliercul.ir lesions will improve also.

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 25. A new scheme
for getting votes that comes from Champ
Clark's district has set the .state candi
dates and campaign managers of lioth
parties talking. The only fact upon
which all agree is that it shows that
Clark is alaimcd.
Ever since 1S04, when a singing school
teacher beat him by niuty-onc votes,
Champ Clark has kept his cars to the
giound before each election, and when
conditions were discouraging he has been
"on the job" early and late until elec
tions. But he never went so far before
as this time.
This year's scheme i to interest the
unmarried young women in his district
in working early and late in his behalf
by offering $200 in purses for the most
The sample received here of his cards
used is for 1'ike county, and it is under
stood that the same arrangement will
apply to each of the nine counties in
Clark's district. If it doe the young
women will earn in the aggregate of
$l,S0O in that district, and there is no
telling how many candidates will adopt
the same scheme.
Five Prizes Are Offeicd.
The prices for Tike county girls are:
First premium. SI 00; second premium,
A50; third premium, $25; fourth pre
mium, $15; fifth premium. $10.
The conditions are that each young
w oman must induce as many men as pos
sible to sign a card, which reads:
I pledge my word and honor that 1
will vote for Champ Clark and the bal
ance of the Democratic ticket, Novem
ber .?, BIOS.
This must be dated, signed and must
have the postoflice address and precinct
of the signer, also the name and address
of the young woman securing the pledge.
A notable feature of this card is that
Champ Clark's name is in very large
capitals while 'the balance of the Dem
ocratic ticket" is in very ordinary type.
There is nothing to prevent the voter
from scratching out everything after
Champ Clark's name, and there is a hint
that this will not be unexpected in this
explanation on the back of the card,
which says that all regular voters,
whether Democrats or Republicans, who
sign this pledge will count.

The contest will close the day before
the election and all the cards must le
sent to Ed A. Glenn at Louisiana, Mo.
Mr. Glenn was Dave Ball's campaign
manager and it may have Ieen because
he knew the dangers ahead that this
unique scheme was adopted.
Only those who have lived in the coun
try know the full meaning of this
method of campaign schemes. A village
belle in a country neighborhood entered
into a contest where $100 is the prize
can produce wonderful results if she
plays the game, and most of them know
ho.v to do it. The young man who is vot
ing this year for the first time is in the
most serious danger. Of course, the
heads of families and the older men
are in less danger, but a man at Repub
licanjieadquarters who doesn't belong to
the first voter class said seriously

NEW YORK, Sept. 25. The beautiful
young English worker for woman suf
frage. Mrs. Philip Snowden, wife of the
member of parliament from Blackburn, is
in this city, the guest of the Rev. Dr. F.
Aked of the Fifth Avenue Baptist
Church, and his wife.
It was through Dr. Aked that she
first became interested in public ques
tions in England, and for the last three
years she has given her time entirely to
the suffrage propaganda. In England
and Scotland she has made a reputation
for eloquence. Mr. Snowden shares his
wife's interest in woman suffrage and
has made two effective speeches in favor
of it in the commons.
Speaking of her work Mrs. Snowden
"It is the fundamental question of the
times. I do not- mean that woman suf
frage will accomplish a great deal at
once that the millenium will arrive.
Things will go on much as they do at
present, but I do think it will alter the
relation of the sexes and that means an
improveiiient in women and in the way
in which their duties are regarded by
men. There is so great difference between
the American and the English point of
view in this regard that the latter can
hardly be understood here. The idea in
England that the woman is the property
of the man dies hard, and it is shown
every day that the absence of political
power in women gives men a feeling of
contempt for them."
In answer to a question regarding the
suffragists and suffragettes in Engla'nd
and their relations to each other, Mrs.
Snowden said: ''They woik into each
other's hands. One society educates, and
the other does the wicked things."
This was said with an appreciative
distance of their second goal when the
