Gotibhob Firm's valedictory wait
one of tbe most inspiring, eloquent and
masterly addresses Uiat has ever been
delivered in tbe itate of Illinois. And it
1 otenrified the warmth of the friendship
of the governor' admirer and made him
many new ones.
Governor Alioel'8 inaugural is not
evasive or lacking in conception of the
duties and responsibilities before him and
a realisation of the needs of the state.
On all questions of vital interest to tbe
state, his position is sound and Arm. Hi?
first vfflcial document i statesmanlike
and able. He will make an able gover
ner.and his will be a wise Edministration
of state affairs.
Senator F. M. Cockksll, renominate
ed by tbe Missouri democratic cauens on
Thursday of last week, bears the reputa
tion in Washington of having a host of
friends among the senators. Be and
John A. Logan has! often been botly op
pesed in political debate, but Senater
Cockrell was at "Black Jack's" death bed
an hour before he died. Logan took the
big Missourian'a haid and called his wife:
"Mary," said tbe dying man, "Senatoi
Cockrell politically in the scaate is my
enemy, but as one whom every senator
respects and loves he is my friend."
These were almost Logan's last words.
Wise Words are These.
It has been a weary wait for the demo
crat of Illinois. A generation has come
acd g ne since the republicans came into
power into this state. Will the domo
crats continue in power so long? Thev
will if true to tbe people. More than
once has Gov. Altgeld reminded demo
cratic leaders that they are on trial; thtt
if they would hive the confidence ef the
peoplu they must deserve it.
There are on the statute books of Illi
nois some bad lws. These should be
repealed or amended. There must be a
change, wholesome and just, in
the administration of public institu
tions and boards. There should be
larger and better provision for ibe in
sane, of whom there are more than 2.00C
in county poor houses. Something
must be done to give tbe people better
Q.'V. Altgeld brines to h's position a
broad conception of law and of public
affairs. He has made a critical study
of the needs of tbe people of Illinois.
He knows tbe people have elected
him with the hope that tbeir condi
tion and the condition of the state
will bo improved by the jood ad
ministration he will give. It is the duty
of every democrat to see that no obstacle
is placed in the way of a wife, conserva
tive and beneficial administration.
Future democratic success in this state
depends much on the democratic mem--bers
of the legislature. Tbey are in
Springfield to do the work of the people,
to amend or repeal bad laws, to pass wise
laws, to act for all people. There is no
excase for Inaction or for killing time.
Tbe people expect the democralic eQce
holders to do their duty, quickly, firmly

summer evenings and coolly return in the

been quite voluntary, but one thing I have
noticed, they Invariably sat up to see if
they had time to cros before any surprise
came for instance, the movements of a
person walking along a footpath in the
distance would be watched with some anx

also seen snakes swim across streams in
the same way, apparently to bask on the

How Harvey Wo rked.
The discussion at the church congress on
the subject of "Exierinients Upon Living
Animals" and the correspondence which
followed it have naturally led to some re
newal of interest in the whole of the ques
tions involved, and especially in one of
them, on which, in the opinion of most
people, the deelskn concerning others
should depend. We refer to the question
of the actual benefit to the human race, or
even to the lower animals themselves,
which these expert nents have been the
means of conferring, and we propose to set
forth some of these benefits in a manner
talculated to be intelligible to nonmedical
The words "experimentation on living
animals" cover a very wide range of proce
dure, and it may therefore be desirable, in
the first place, to attempt to classify experi
mental work with reference to its nature
and objects. Experiments are performed:
As an orderly series, intended to ascer
tain the functions of organs or assemblages
of organs in the humi n or animal body.
As detached proceedings, intended to de
cide some siDcle quest ons which may arise
during the course of an illness or in the
progress of a medicolegal investigation,
such a question, for example, as the prac
ticability and applicability of a proposed
operation or the nature of a poison which
defies chemical analysis
Either singly or in se-ies, for the purpose
of ascertaining the iLitial and ultimate
action of some drug uiion the human or
ganism, with fho view ither of testiug its
value as a remedial ageat or of guarding,
by antidote or otherwise, against its inju
Inoculation and feeding experiments, in
tended to identify the specific microbe of
some disease and to ascertain whether.
ana 11 so, in what degr-e, its virulence is
capable of being destroy.nl or mitigated by
cultivation or other circumstances.
Besides the experiments which fall under
one or other of the foregoing groups there
may he others which it would be difficult
to classify, but the grouj s will serve to in
clude the greater number, and each will
furnish illustrations of valuable results
which could probably have been attained
in no other manner.
As a conspicuous exa nple of the first
group we may recall to iaind the experi
ments of Dr. William Ha -vey by which he
discovered -the circulation of the blood.
There may be thousands of educated peo
ple to whom this phrase js a phrase and
nothing more. But the work of Harvey
bears about the same relat ion to the subse
quent progress of medicine as that of Gal-
ili to the subsequent progress of astron
To the physicinn of tbe present day the
ignorance of animal fund ion which pre
vailed before Harvey, and which his dis
coveries served in time to dispel, can
scarcely be realized by at y effort of the
imagination, and it woulc be impossible
to conceive of any progress in physiology
or of any progress in medicine which could
have been made prior to the completion of
his work. Every portion of that work,
from its commencement to its close, was
accomplished Rnd estnblislied by experi
ments upon Iiviug animals, and could have
been accomplished in no other way. The
king placed the doer of the royal parks at
Harvey's disposal for this siecial purpose,
and came himself to witness tbe experi
ments as soon as the results were suf
The work which Harvey accomplished
for the benefit of nil future generations of
the human race lias been so fruitful that
it is scarcely possible to point to any subse
quent discovery in physiology or in medi
cine which h?.s not more or less directly
followed from it.
In order to discover a second example of
the kind of experimentation which we have
placed in the first group we niay puss from
the circulatory to the nervous system,
which will furnish us with a:i instance at
least as remarkable and at least as strong
as that which has been already dealt with.
To take a third example frnrn the same
group, Dr. Hope's experimci ts on living
animals cleared up much which had before
been doubtful regarding heart disease, not
withstanding bedside experietee aud post
mortem examinations, and Lave enabled
physicians ever since to detect the earliext
indications of cardiac changes and correct
ly to appreciate the sounds wliich are sig
nificant of Improvement or of deterioration.
Proceeding to the second group, an ex
cellent example of them is furnished by
the experiments preliminary to John Hun
ter's operations for the cure of t neurism, or
to Von Graefe's operations for the cure of
glaucoma. The results obtaiied by ex
periments on the ligation of arteries, from
the time of Hunter onward, have led to a
very great and constantly increasing sav
ing of human life.
Tbe third group embraces a very Large
number of experiments, the details of
which would mostly be unintelligible to
nonmedical persons, but which Lave served
to establish the action of some medica
The fourth group includes tie so called
"Inoculation" and "feeding" experiments,
which have been extensively pe -formed in
connection with modern bacteri ilogy, and
the main features of which have become
widely known. It has been established by
these that the active cause of m id y forms
of disease is a special microbe, and that in
some instances this microbe may be culti
vated or reared in Bticb a manner as to
diminish the virulence of its (fleets, so
that it will confer, when introduced into
the body of a man or an animal, immunity
from a severe disease by the prot lictiou of
a mild one. The effect of inoculation ex
periments has been to identify the several
microbes of many diseases, to prove that
they are the causes of these d it eases, to
test the degree in which their efiects may
bediminished by cultivation, and the de
gree in which these diminished efi ects will
afford protection against inoculation, acci
dental or designed, with the more ordinary
forms. London Times.

Sarah Japhet Saunders had way of
winding herself up in her own flow of lan

confused. She was called Sarah Japhet
because her husband's consin, "Jeems"

the two families Lived in the same town.
One afternoon a neighbor of Sarah Japhet's
was giving an account of a recent picnic to
an elderly female who had been kept at
home by "rheumatiz."
"Scroggin's glen was well enough," she
said in reply to same question of the in
valid, "but folks need t' be pooty sure
looted b'fore they go scramblin up aa
down them peaked rocks. As fer me, 1

but they ain't nothin but i;rrin pickled

boarding over t' th' Emmons' took along
t' th picnic
"Most of us liked 'em fa'rly well; there
was an extry large supply of 'em, so we
didn't feel t' hesitate 'bout eatin 'em. But
Sarah Japhet, some way or 'nother,
couldn't seem t' relish 'em. If she'd kep'
mum 'twould 've been all right 'nough;
more'n likely folks wouldn't 've noticed
whether she eat 'em or not; but what d'
you s' pose she done?
"She stepped over t' one ' th' boarders,
a kind of a toppin young woman, an says
she, 'I feel t' say I'm real glad I don't set
much by them little fish you folks fetched,
fer if I did I sh'd feel called upon t' eat
'em, an that would be kind o' disagreeable
to me, seein I don't relish 'em.'
"An then she set down again as pleased

"After they had been nearly every
where today," Baid a Chicago man, "from
the bottom of the Washington street tun
nel to the top of the Auditorium tower, we
found ourselves about noon far down on
the South Side, and stepped into the first
restaurant we came to to get something to
eat. Any surprise my friends may have
felt at the general appearance of the in
terior of the place was nothing to what
they must have felt later when I gave my
order for one bowl of soup, one plain
steak, Frankfort sausage, mashed potatoes,
scrambled eggs and a cup of coffee, and
our waiter transferred the order to the
man who was dishing out the several
things in the following astounding lan
guage, 'One swim, one boot lug, one ride
on the cable, mashed Murphies, a ship- ,
wreck and one muddy.'
"My friend hail seen and heard many
novel things while in Chicago, but this
caused them as well as myself to hold our
breaths. I pretended that it was a very
common thing in a really swell, first class
World's fair restaurant, and quietly asked
the owners of tbe Illinois circus lots what
they would have. One of them looked at
his friend and then at me, and as my out
ward appearance evidently satisfied him
that I had a thorough knowledge of my
position, in a very uncertain tone of voice
asked for a cup of tea, cabbage without
the corued beef, a couple of turned eggs
and some wheat cakes. These faces turned
ashen white, and I thought their hearts
stopped beating when our waiter yelled:
" 'One light Chinaman, old Ireland with
out a shamrock, white wings slapped on
the back and a stack of whites.'
" 'What'll you haver' said the waiter to
my second friend, as the color commenced
to return to his face.
" 'Ivord,' said the delegate from southern
Illinois, 'give me the same, with the ex
ception cf the white wings' and we all
blinked and tried to look wise." Chicago

Good .book titles are not necessarily rem
iniscent. Mr. Black is usually fortunate
in his choice, although he seldom depends
upon the authors for a suggestion. What
could be better than "Madcap Violet" or
"A Princess of Thule" or "Macleod of
Dare" or the alluring simplicity of "Shan
don Bells" and "Sunrise?" We must admit,
however, that "Green Pastures and Picca
dilly" is what Polonius would have called
"an ill phrase a vile phrase." Mrs, Oli
phant has given us a curious mixture of
good and bad title "He That Will Hot
When He May," "Miss Marjoribanks"
(which we adjure our readers to pronounce
"Marchbanks") and "Within the Pre
cincts" being among the former, and "The
Railway Man and His Children" being
perhaps the worst example of the latter.
Dickens was curiously infelicitous in his
choice of titles unless we pardon the bad
grammar of "Our Mutual Friend" while
Thackeray, on the other hand, made a mas
ter stroke in naming his first long novel
"Vanity Fair." But far worse than a com
monplace title is a misleading one. Provi
