A little commutation will readily ahow

rapid multiplication that they may
double every fifteen minutes under
favorable conditions of temperature
and food supply. Estimate the num

hours, or nlnety-slx doublings. The
number would be more than thirty
two thousand billion billions, or suf
ficient to cover eighty thousaad

apace of more than fifteen cubic

not more than one twenty-thousandth

practically cannot occur; for while

rapidly, but accomplishes In the
course of a few hours what bright

that in order that our hous-es abould

The Influence of occupation as a
cause of consumption Is shown by Dr.
J. M. French In the Medical Exam
iner. At least tour classes of employ
ments ments have a tendency to favor
the development of tuberculoids.
1. Sedentary employments In Ill
ventilated apartments, involving con
finement in impure air, and other un
wholesome conditions. This class of
occupations is typified by the o
cailed swet-bops for the manufacture
of various articles of clothing.
2. Employments which necessitates
the Inhalation of irritating dust and
noxious vapors. Such are those of
stone-cutters, bleachers, matchmak
ers, file-cutters, grinders, engravers,'
2. Employments which Involve the
overuse or abuse of certain muscles.
These are athletes, prize fighters,
gymnasia, wrestlers, professional bi
cycle riders, ball players, etc.. a large
proportion of whom die eventually of
4. Employments which Involve un
due familiarity with Intoxlcanta.
These are those connected with man
ufacture and sale of wine, beer and
the various classes of alcoholics.
Tatham'a tables show that, taking the
average mortality from consumption
at one hundred, that of publicans is
one hundred and forty, of brewers one
hundred and fcrty-elght and of bar
tenders two hundred and fifty-seven.
Overcoming Hereditary Tuberculosis.
Much Is belug said nowadays re
specting the out-of door treatment of
tuberculoids, a disease which, while
rarely directly trananiisslble by hered
ity, la one tha predisposition to which
Is In the highest decree hereditary.
It has been clearly shown by numer
ous experiments In various parts of
the United Stale thst out-of door lite

Tuberculosis is a disease of rtvl'lra
tlon. It scarcely exists among sav
ages who live In the primitive state,
but quickly appears among such peo
ple when the habits of civilization are
adopted, especially the Indoor life.
The South American monkey and the
North American Indian alike fall vic
tims to this dlaeaae when but away
from the sunlight and active exercise
out of doors.
The time Is not far distant when
every larp: city will find It necesmry
to provide conveniences for the ap

One of the most pltltul sight In
fCugland Is to see young women act

Ing plsces, and to see women elbow

and with them partake freely of In

painful sight Is not at all rare, and It
is quite, common to see drunken wom

a sad commentary on our modern civ
ilisation. In Copenhagen It Is the custom to
dress young schoolgirls so that their
arms are almost or entirely bare, even
In weather when Americana appre

necessarily chills the blood, and tends
to produce congestion of the Internal
organs, and undoubtedly lays the
foundation for colda, pneumonia and
Tuberculosis la making sad havoc
among the urban population ot Nor
way. It is pitiful to note how this
plague Is decimating this once hardy
race. Sedentary life, indoor confine
ment and defective ventilation are
undoubtedly the most prolific causes,
for fifty per cent of the tubercular
cases make a satisfactory recovery
when they are sent to some outdoor
sanitarium; and what will cure a con
sumptive would certainly have pre
vented the onset of the disease.
The liquor curse Is undermining the
physical stamina of the Swedish race.
Liquor drinking among the working
classes is almost universal. One
third of their population die before
the age of twenty-one. and one-fourth
of those who live, are rejected from
military service on account of phys

Dr. I.orenx, of bloodless surgery
fame, cannot understand how Amer

would depopulate any other country.
"The pies, puddings, saucea and in

which are unbealthful in tbe extreme,
partaken ot by young and old alike

The secret is to be found in the
simple, hardy lives of the forefathers
of the present generation. Their vig

grandchildren wonderful constitution

simple to the luxurious Is working
havoc. The rising generation have
squandered the constitutional capital
bequeathed to them and are rapidly
becoming physical bankrupts. A halt

LONG TRIP, WITH HEALTH AND
PLEASURE THS OBJECTS.
Correspondent Write of Journey In
Teas and Mexico With a Party as
Ouesta of the Southern Paelflo Railroad,
fillson Willed, special correspond
ent of IPslle't Weekly, writes enter
tainingly of a thousand mile horseback
hunt in Texas and Mexico with a party
as guests of the Southern Taclflc rail
road. The members of tbe party rep
resented twelve different states. At
Sablnas, Mexico, be aaya:
"Over half of tlio thousand-mile Jour
ney has been completed and the fel
lows who are here for their health are
now hard as nails; those who came
along with an appetite for pleasure
are well nigh satiated; and the sports
men have brought In, day after day,
incredibly huge bags of ducks, geese,
rabbits, squirrels, and no end of small
game, not to mention big hauls ot
deer, bear, wild turkeys and fish. All
of which Is due to about tbe most
healthful region In the Union; to a
section cf country where pleasurable
diversion Is eternally at hand, and to
a territory that Is literally a sports
roan's paradise hitherto untrod and tin
shot and unftshed."
Mr. Willett bestows a deserved
eulogy on the splendid hospitality ot
the Southern Pacific and the hearty
welcome accorded the party in south
ern cities from New Orleans onward.
Visitors to southwest Texas will not
need to be told of the really marvelous
work done by the Southern Pacific in
building tip that section of tbe coun
try. Mr. Willett says:
"Then we again boarded our train
and railroaded on for the most of a
day. through a country in which the
Southern I'aclflc has caused a blade of
grass not to speak of stalk of corn,
cane or sugar, and blossom of cotton
to flourish where none grew before.
"Thirty miles farther Inland on the
San Diego river we made our first
camp In Mexico. After that our
ramps were from twenty to fifty miles
apart. And thus we have progressed
on our thousand-mile horseback hunt.
passing through strange villages and
seeing queer peon customs, visiting tbe
headquarters of mighty ranches of a
million acres, where the owners escort
ed us to the front door with alx hun
dred white horses, or six hundred
black horses, or six hundred bays, as
the case might be, and having all
sorts of diversions of big hunts, and
witnessing many kinds of unique
sights in primitive and quaint old Mex
"Our first three or four camps were
made on one ot the largest ranches in
the world the Trevlno ranch of l.ooo.
000 acres. Of this great ranch as
big as a New England atate as on all
the other great ranches we have trav
ersed, the Southern larlfic manage
ment obtained ail hunting and fishing
"It was on the great Trevlno ranch
that the heal'.hseekera ot the party
first discovered that they were get
ting in Mexico exactly what they had
come for a new constitution. The
sportsmen of the party, too, were out
late and up early on "the chase that
pleaseth." Tbe motto always wss to
kill only such game, however plentiful
It might be, as was actually needed for
consumption at our table, for the
Southern Pacific stands for the kill
ing cf game for food only."
Many Interesting stories of the dis
trict traversed are related by Mr. Wil
lett. He concludes:
"Thus on this trip every promise
made by tbe Southern Partite railroad
has been kept to the letter Just a
similar promises will be kept on the
second annual thousand mile horse
back hunting party already talked of
for next year."

"You have noticed bones lying about
on the floor of the lion's rage?"
"And you have put your hand
through the bars of the rage after oue
of them to see what tbe lion would do.
"No, I never did any torn fool thing
tike that. Any man of common sense
knows thst the lion would lite him.
So that's tbe way you lost )otir fin
gers. Is it?"
"No. not exactly."
"How not exactly?"
"Why, I got the bone out ell right,
and the lion only grinned at me, but
next day. while sawing wood on a ma
chine, I got these finger In the way
if the old saw and tbey were nipped

The Culllnan Diamond.
Speculation Is rife In mining circles
as to what might have been the fate of
the Cullman diamond had It not been
picked up on the surface.
A stone of tfiat magnitude. If carried
to the washing machine, would not

conceivably be picked out and care
