Society at "Washington.
Mrs. Hay, wife of the secretary of
state, has taken into her own hands
the matter of adjusting diplomatic
etiquette at Washington and has un
dertaken to settle the question of pre
cedence in on amicable manner. She
has sent out notices to wives of the
memliers of the cabinet, the senators,
representatives,, and of the justices
of the supreme court that hereafter
they will le expected to call upon the
wives of the ambassadors represent
ing foreign nations, instead of wait
ing for the foreigner's wives to call
on them as has been the case in the
past. But the wives of the foreign
ministers, who are of lower rank than
the ambassadors, have leen given a
hint that they are expected to call on
the wives of the senators in the fu
ture, a duty In which they have been
remiss. For years it has been the
custom of wives of the foreign am
bassadors upon arriving in Washing
ton to first pay their respects to the
wife of the president, then to call oil
the wires! of. the members of the cab
inet nndj-the senators. As the mat
ter was a delicate one to be left to
the wife of the clean of the diplomatic
corps, it was suggested to Mrs. Hay
that she take the matter in hand
herself and adjust it as she thought
most diplomatic unci according to the
recent decision in such matters.
After many consultations with Mrs.
I'oosevelt and others her course in
the matter was decided iiHn. As the
wives of ministers are lower in rank
they will lie required to pay their
resects. while Mayor des Planches,
wife of the new Italian ambassador,
will now proceed to pay their re
sjiccts. while Mine. Assis-I!rasil
and wives of new foreign ministers
who have not done so will now call
upon the wives of senators, though
it is rumored that they resent Mrs.
Hay's taking the matter in hand.
There has long been complaint upon
the part of women in official society
that the wives of diplomats were re
miss in acquainting themselves with
the etiquette of official life and fail
ed to return calls or acknowledge
favors. The question naturally arose
as to whether the wives of I'nited
State senators should call upon Coun
tess Cassini, Ihe is-yenr-old niece of
the I'ussiaii ambassador, and who has
been acknowledged as his hostess anil
who ranks as the daughter of an am
bassador. It was decided that the
countess would not receive this dis
tinguished attention from a senator's
wife or share the glory of the wife of
an ambassador. Another perplexing
question with the foreigners was as
to whether they should call upon
Miss Keau. sister of Senator Kean
of New .Jersey, and upon other sisters
and mothers who do the social hon
ors of a senator's household, but
who ar; not their wives. This matter
was easily decided, it being held that
women holding such positions must
make the first call upon a foreign am
bassador's wife, or meet her by
The Cure of Consumption.
New York physicians have been
gathering statistics which prove that
deaths from consumption ;n that city
have decreased in number each year.
Dr. William II. (iuilfoy says that in
I-1 the death rate from consump
tion was 4. -'7 a thousand population,
and in l'.'Ol it was onlv a thous
and. The doc-tor accordingly estimat
ed that I!. 77 lives had liven saved
from 1M to l'.'Ol in Manhattan and
The P.ronx. anil about t".4:;i lives hail
been saved in the entire greater city.
with a population of ,'5,(liUo(. For
the first quarter of this year there
were 1J fewer deaths from consump
tion in that city than for the corres
ponding quarter last year.
When in 1'-' Dr. Koch announced
that consumption is infectious and
declared the necessity for destroying
the sputa, the newspapers through
out the country spread the news
broadcast. According .Jo another
eminent physician. Dr. Tracy, in the
live years following the announce
ment, of Dr. Koch, in New York city
tin- death rate from consumption
went down from 4.11 to .'...V! a thous
and population, in the next five years
to a thousand, and from l-'.Mi to
10OO to L'..".t" a thousand. That is a
diminution of :;7 per cent from IStiO
The reason assigned for this de
crease is the growing knowledge of
the infectious nature of the disease
and the precautions taken to pre
vent its transmission. The diminu
tion in t nlierculosis is shown to have
occurred on the continent as well as
here, ever since Dr. Koch's discovery.
Previous to that time the belief that
danger lurked in the sputa did not
obtain and thousands contracted the
disease from it. Again, a person af
flicted with consumption docs not
realize it until the end. and often
the disease is in advanced stages be
fore its presence is noted by others
than physicians. The decrease in the
number of deaths and cases is evi
dence that consumption is p re vent -ible
if proper caution is exercised.

"A PRETTY MESS"
In IStS I was detailed on court mar
tial to a'- nt Nashville; for the purpose
of trying -ascs of delinquency that had
occurred In the Army of the Cumber
land. One young fellow. Sergeant Mil
ton Troup, who was brought before us,
engaged my attention the moment I
saw him. His bearing , was soldierly,
and his countenance bore the stamp of
a strong character. lie was charged
with desertion to the enemy.
His disappearance occurred while his
regiment was Sn proximity to the Con
federates. J.:iler on the command at
tacked and surprised a small liody of
the enemy, taking a number of prison
ers, among them the accused. 1 1 is sto
ry, was that on the evening of his dis
appearance he had pointed out to his
captain that the command was liable
to bo surrounded by the enemy. The
captain had declared that there was no
enemy near. Troop offered to ride out
and recount lor. The captain gave his
consent. Troop had not gone far before
he was called upon from the rear to
surrender, lie had ridden between the
The captain, Croker. being called,
flatly denied the whole story, declared
that he had had no such warning and
Lad not given the sergeant permission
or orders to scout. The matter rested
on a question of veracity between the
two men. The scale was turned against
the accused by the producing of a
scrap of paper found iu his knapsack
on which was written, "Meet me to
night at the bridge south of the tav
ern." It was not signed, and as the
handwriting was manifestly disguised
it was Impvissibk? to tell whether the
writer was in.in or woman. At the time
the message? was written the location
described was within the enemy's linos.
When asked to explain this paper, the
prisoner at lirM refused to do so. but
afterward said that he had formed
the acquaintance of a young ountry
girl, who had appointed the meeting.
The captain's evidence was so direct
and the accused's explanation so In me
that he was found guilty and sentenced
to be shot. As he was led away he
made an exclamation which convinced
me of his innocence:
'Here's a pretty mess."
It seemed a very small and unlmpor.
tant piece of evidence on which to ad
judge a man innocent, and yet it occur
red to tne a very natural remark for an
innocent one to make under the cir
cumstances. A timid man would be
crushed by fear of the gallows; a
plucky man would naturally first con
sider what n terrible scrape he had got
I called on the general commanding
before whom the verdict must go for
approval, and told him that I feared
an innocent man was to sulTcr, giving
him my Impressions, for I had no rea
son. The general said that he would
not hurry in approving the sentence.
A month passed, when the general
sent for me and told me that they were
asking at general headquarters for the
papers in the Troop case, and he must
forward them. If ho disapproved of
them without reason. It would place
him in a bad position and would not
save the prisoner. As I had nothing on
which to base my faith in Troop's in
nocence except his remark when con
victed. I could do nothing. The gen
eral approved the papers and sent
them onward and upward. In a few
weeks they were returned, with an or
der to carry out the .sentence. Shortly
before the execution was to take place
an outpost defended by Captain Croker
was attacked, and the captain, desert
ing his command, lied to the rear.
There being only one other oflicer pres
ent with the company and he being a
weakling, the men stuck together and
without a lender beat off the enemy.
TIkmi came charges of cowardice
ag-iinst Captain Croker. I rcjiorted the
matter to the general, asking If he
could not stave off Troop's execution In
the hoie that something uiixht turn up
to threw light on his case. .Unfortu
nately there was no court in session to
try Captain Croker. and there was an
imperative order to shoot Sergeant
Troop. At the general's suggestion I
visited Croker and asked him if he
did not have sonic further informa
tion as to Troop's desertion that had
not appeared at the trial. 1 found him
dogged, though despondent, and left
him without gaining anything.
The general made up his mind to con
vene a court and try Croker at once.
The court met. Croker was brought be
fore it. convicted of cowardice and sen
tenced to be dismissed from the service.
As soon as the papers were forwarded
to the general for his approval he sent
"Go to Captain Croker." he said, "and
tell him that if he can and will clear
Sergeant Troop I will disapprove the
findings of the court and permit him to
I found the coward disposed to save
what he could of his reputation by
confessing himself a .villain. He had
overheard a conversation between two
of his men detailing a plan to depose
him. Their difficulty was.- first, that
they did not know how to go about it,
and. second, there was no officer in the
company fit to put In his place. They
finally decided upon Sergeant Troop,
who, though a noncommissioned officer,
would be acceptable to nil If they could
secure his appointment. Troop had
gone on his scout immediately after
this conversation, and when he was re
captured the temptation to get him out
of the way was too great for the cap
tain to withstand.
.Troon wis.Dardoned for an offense he
had never committed as the simplest
way out of a "pretty mess" and made
captain of his company. Croker's resig
nation was accepted, and he has since
become a prominent citizen of his
town. CYKITj F. FOLLIN.
