it. and that In use In the highlands of
Scotland has become so Identified with

of the most Important discoveries of

There has been some criticism of Fro

nounced Intention of keeping the char
acter of his consumption cure a sveret
from the world at large for a year In
order that he may reap pecuniary bene

Representatives of the professor In
America say that the new cure will be

August; that it will then be cheap, so
that any physician can obtain It, and
that special rates will be made to
philanthropic Institutions and to the
poor. A wealthy citizen of New York
has offered Professor von Behring $50,
G0O If he will announce the secret of his
cure at ouce. He suggests that this be
made a part of a fund to be contribut

qualification to the offer Is that the
treatment must first be pronounced
successful by a committee of competent
medical men. There is talk Is Paris of
making up a popular sulmcriptlon to re

second in five and third In two. One
of the greatest thoroughbred sprinters
that have ever been seen in the United

Reliable, last season's star, could not
