THE DISCUSSION OF DIPHTHERIA.
The Fociety then took up the questions
propounded by the American Medical
aaiociation on "The Cause and Prevent
tion of Diphtteria" and discussed each
question separately as follows:
1. Is diphtheria dependent upon a snc-
To this, with one exception, all voted
2. If so, is hucL specific cause devel
oped or preserved in other than albumin
oid tissues and fluids?
The sentiment was unanimously in the
3. By what media and channels does
the specific euuse gain entrance to the
human organism f
Food and water, the latter chiefly. were
thought to ba the chief channels; and
less frequently through the atmosphere
was the preva.ling opinion.
4 To what extent is there, and what
especial conditions may constitute, indi
vidual predisposition to the disease T
On this there were various opinions
a.od none entirely satisfactory, though
most of the paysicians thought there was
no peculiar predisposing condition.
5. Is there reason to believe that the
dixease may caused by germs, ptoma
ines or products and conditions devel
oped within the body 8nd independent of
pecific causes received from without?
To this there was a decidedly unani
mous negative answer.
6. To whut extent, and for what
length of tine, is isolation of persons
affected or tifected with diphtheria, re
garbed essecial as a preventive measure?
Two wet ks from the establishment of
convalescence, was the lime slated.
7. What (ubstances and methods of
disinfection lire regarded as reliable
Fumes of tulphur in moist atmosphere
was conceded the best disinfectant.
8. Can disinfection be depended upon
either to take the place or shorten the
duration of isolation or of quarantine?
The prevailing opinion was that disin
fection of t.ny kind could not take the
place of isolation, but may be used lo
shorten the period of isolation.
B. Should hospitals and stations be
provided ftr isolation, disinfection and
treatment cf cases of diphtheria, for the
protection cf the public health?
If possible, was the answer that all
preseDt assented lo.
10. Whs', climatic limitations are
known as sffecting the development and
spread of diphtheria?
A cold d imp atmosphere was the ex
perience of every physician in attendance-
11. To what extent are domestic or
other animals and fowls liable to diph
theriaand to become sources of infections
to human i icings?
The doctors agreed that domestic ani
mals and fowls were very largely respon
sible for the conveyance of infectious
diseases si ch as diphtheria to human

The Union had one ot its spring at
tacks of severe colic this morning and it
devoted considerable of its empty apace
to a grunt which was directed in part at

oat of the innocent item appearing in

ribbon. Jimmie at once recalled bis ex
perience of a few nights since, tbe details
of which have appeared in tbe Argus; he
knew full well the location as well as tbe
gender of the sender, and be tenderly
laid the parcel away and siid nothing,
solemnly vowing to himself, however, to
keep the matter a profound secret and
so he did.
The coal mines of Coal Valley, inst
over the line in Rock Island county. have
been productive of several surprises. A
few years ago a cave of beautiful crystals
was found there, many of the crystals
being brought away as curiosities, some
of them to Geneseo. Prof. Stoddard,
principal of the schools there, gives an
account of the latest find as follows:
"When I was about to leave tbe mine 1
entered an old part of the bank, being
attracted by a peculiar vegetable growth,
and upon glancing at the rocks above 1 1
perceived tbe most beautiful imprint of a
tree, almost entirely covered with a
strange white substance, giving it the ap
pearance of a coral. Suspended from
this were drops of waier of various col
ors producing by the light of the miner's
lamp, crystals of many colors. I could
trace the branches down to the smallest
twigs and from thence bark to the trunk,
which was atont fourteen or fifteen
inches in diameter." Geneseo Republic

session this morning wiih President T. H
Thomas and Director C C. Carter. W.
S. Knowllon and G E Bsrth present.
The usual form of tuines wss dis
pensed with, and the following resolu
tion was unanimously adopted:
Rejoiced. That we, the members of the
boiird of education, are heartily in symna
thy with tbe movement of citizens in
supplying the American flag to the differ
ent school buildings, but that they can
not ptrmit such presentation in the name
of any political or religious order.
The above action on the part of tbe
board comes from an announcement that
the American Protective association pro
posed to present a flag to school building
No. 1 at :s o'clock this afternoon. The
board had been advised that there was a
movement on foot among the residents
and patrons of school buildings Nos.l. 2,
4, and 7, to present their respective
school buildings with flags, and Director
Carter bad been authorized to procure
flg staffs for the same in order that the
flags might be run up one week from to
day when the Northern Illinois Teachers'
association meets here. The members of
the board took very kindly to the
idea of the tUg presentation and
expressed their appreciation of tbe pa
triotic principles inculcated by the dis
play of the starry flg from the school
buildings, where the children may learn
young to associate it with their schooling
and grow up with it ever before them.
But when the members kasned indirectly
that the presentation was lo come from
a sociely, It put a new aspect to the case,
and it was determined nat to approve of
ss coming in that way. and would
have so notified the representatives of it
had they solicited an expression of the
members on the subject, as courtesy would
have prompted. But the board was
simply notified to be present this after
noon as citizens desired to make a pre
sentation, and nothing whs said about a
society until the public announcement
was made. The board's p:sition is plain
it w ill receive the flag gratefully as com
ing from citizens, but it cannot accept it
as tendered by a religious or political or
