the handsome young divine in "The Charity
Ball," at the Lyceum, has brought many re
cruits to the standing army of girls, who
swear by the curl of his mustache and the
classical cut of his nose.
As for Maurice Barrymore, with his musical
drawl and his magnetic eyes, which he some
how manages to make look blue over the
footlights, he stands pro-eminent as the re
cipient of more "mash" notes than any man
on the metropolitan stage. How many ar

the violets on the front row. Courtice peeped
at her behind his fan, but 60 did Ko-Ko, the

The tierui Theory of 111
Some people were discussing the germ
theory of disease a few evenings ago, and a
ioctor who was present laid down the law
emphatically upon the germ as being the
physical cauio, or rather inseparable ante
cedent, of every known form of disease.
When asked why, if he knew so much about
it, be and the members of the profession
didn't kill the germs, or at least explain to
the public how such causes of disease might
be exterminated, be just stroked his beard
and said the germ had yet to be discovered,
although it was well known to exist.
"Why," he said, "we are only at the be
ginning of medical science. There's leprosy,
which has leen well known throughout this
world since the Hebrews left Egypt in the
time of Pharaoh, and as yet we do not know
whether it is hereditary, contagious or com
municable in any way. We know absolutely
nothing about its causes or its cures. All we
seem to know is that it. is in some way con
nected with such diseases as cancer, scrofula
and rheumatism, and that like them it is in
curable." Just then a little child in the room began
to break out with whooping cough. It was
the lieginning of the third week's whooping,
and everything thut medical skill and care
ful nursing could do had been done to re
lieve tho little one. "You see there," said
the doctor; "we can't stop the time of that
disease by one day. We may put the child
to sleep and soften the cough a little, bat the
germ has put iu bis appearaneo and must
run his course. The fact is that medical
science is now employed not so much in find
ing remedies as in discovering preventives.
And, indeed, in a truer sense than Sir Isaac
Newton, we doctors are like children pick
ing pebbles on the shore, while the great
cean of truth lies unexplored before us."
The strange part of the story is that although
the lady of the house admired the doctorV
candor, she determined in future to call in a.
physician who bail more faith in his own.

That extreme tired feeling which Is so dis
