Dr. G. D. Bete«, a lending physician Chicago, of tbe homoepathio school, bas published a brief treatise o a scarlet fever diptberia, erysipelas and kindred diseasts in which be advanced and sup ports with much ability some entirely new views in regard to the nature and treatment of theee diseases. As tbe re sult of a ssriae of mioroscopic observa tions, confirmed by experimental treat, ment, be baa satisfied himself that these diseases are caused by living ganiatua in the blood, infinitesimal par asitas which are generated and distribu ted accerding to fixed laws of nature. Having found their way into tbe blood, these minute organa oauae a veritable blood poison. From this startling poi be inferred that the way to ouro the dis ease was to remove tbe eaese, and ac cordingly began the edminiairatien of carbolic acid by the stomach to destroy the poison germs. The writer says : "In diphtheria the result was noth prompt and gratifying, inane cases re covering rapidly under the administra tion of this antiseptie, when other mess •raa offered bet little hope. Observing how seldom erysipelas appeared S ieal cases where I used carbolic aoid reasings, I was lad to rtgard this dis ease of septic origin; and to-day the cer tainty with whieha case of erysipelas is arrested by tbe internal administration of an effioient antiseptic is as complete demonstation of the presence of sap. tic germs in the blood, or is at least, as convinceing to my mind as though the germs could be seen through the mi croscope." The same line of treatment has satis fied him that scarlet fever is as clearly of septiu character as diphtheria and he says that during the las years he has treated hundreds of cases of scarlet fever and diphtheria on this plan, administering the sulpho-car bolaleof soda (a chemical combination of oarbolio acid with the sulphite of so da) with unvarying success. He has satisfied himself by its administration the blood and tissues of the hntnan body may be thoroughly disinfected without exciting any toxic effects of the drng. Administered to children breathing an atmosphere loaded with scarlet fever or diphtheric contagon, it acts as in abso lute preventive, with exception! so rare and with symptoms so light when any appear, that ouo is forced to believe that the fault was rather in an insufficient dose than in the agent. Given when either of the these diseases has devel oped an attack, and within a few hour-s the activity of the disease has ceased and the remaining smyptoms speedily fade cut into health. The writer cites a number of towns and neighborhoods where thiB remedy was used, and in every instance it opera ted either as a preventive or a complete cure while the disease was raging very fatally all around. In conclusion he of or nt in sur t two says: '•I earnestly commend it to the atten tion of the boards of health in all our larger cities, and of the true physician everywhere. In bringing forward this mode of treatment I gave it first to the S rofession and afterward to the public, esiring that my same should appear only in so far as it might commend the treatment to those who had confidence in me. My task is ended when the sul pho carbolate of soda shall have won its way to public confidence, as it has to my own. I cannot dismiss this subject with sut a warning: to those who pretend to make use cf this agent, but use so small a quantity as to be utterly valueless I do not know that this ugent possesses any other therapeutic properties than as an antiseptic; and, to be useful as suoh, it must be given in quantity suffi cient t? disinfect the blood ; otherwise it will be diseases as a spray of an atomizer in ex tinguishing a conflagration." The remedy is so simple and available that tbe discovery is one of great im portance, and deserving of the careful attention of the medical profession everywhere. useless in the face of theee A BARTENDER'S STORY. ROHAXCl OF KBAI, LIKB—KICHAUD VON KROKIO't CAR SB It. New York Herald. A handsome young German, with quite a military air, walked into Essex Market Court yeatsrnay morning, and stepping up to thejudgea bench, said he was Richard von Knronig, and was there to answer a charge of desertion preferred by a woman named Charlotte Koch. Von Krontg acted in a very dignified manner whuo addressing Judge Murray, he told hie boner in a few words that the compliant had no claim whatsoever upon him; that, in fact, he was not married to her, though he admitted that he had been intimately acquainted with her for some time past. Ina subsequent conversation Judge Murray the accused told the following story : He is the eon of Rich ard von Kronig, Sr., one of the wealthiest residents of Anhault Dessau, and judge of the Circuit Court of Anhault Beruberg. He entered tho Prussian army at aa early age and remained in it till he rose to the rank of first lieutenant in his regi ment, in which he served through the late Franco-Pruaisan war. After leaving tbe army he indulged in a long course of dissipation, became a deep drinker and heavy gambler, and finally embarked for this country to get rid of nie debts, trou bles and old associations. He landed in New York with very little money, and after seeking employment for some time finallv accepted a situation as bartender in Buckheister's hotel, in Fort Lee. Charlotte Koch, a fine-looking German girl, was employed in the same place,and thus the acquaintance between thim sprang up. Chorlotte claims that they lived together as man and wife till a child was born to them, when Von Kro nlg left her to her fate. She came to New York penniless and to look for her recreant lover, and being taken very sick here was sent to the Chanty hospital on Blackwell's Island, where she is now lying in a convalescent state. Judgo Murray convicted Von Kronig till Char lotte can be braught to court to testify. with Georue U, Pettibone, Superintendent of the Howe Sewing Machine Company for the State of New Jersey, is accueil of having embezzled from ten to twenty thousand dollars. WHAT THE FIGURES ILLUSTRATE The New York Herald has an article tp show that because five New England States, tbs four Pacific and eight Western States cast their electoral votes tor Hayes these different sections of the country will be quite satisfied with the result of the action of the electoral commission. It assumes also that tbe whole of the South ern States, whose votes, with the excep tion of South Carolina, were cast for Til den, will cheerfully acquiesce in the fraudulent perversion of those votes whereby Tilden was counted out, and will exercise an important influence in counseling acquiescence in that republi can administration which the returning boards of Florida and Louisiana and tbs vote of Mr. Juatioe Bradley have contin ued in power after it had been repudiated at the ballot-box. But whilst it may be conceded that there will be ''no serious resistance" anywhere, as tbe "Herald" says, "to the completion of the couat and the inauguration of Hayes," and that the democratic party "will stand by ita pledge to abide by the decision of the eommia sion "In spite of disappointment and a deep sense of Injustice," the "Herald" is wrong to infer that Mr. Hayes, beaten on tbe popular vote by more than two hun dred ahd fifty thousand majority, and beaten alao on the electoral vote if count could have been bad, will be en tirely acceptable to the opposition even in the eighteen States whose electoral votes he undoubtedly obtained. Of the thirty eight States composing the Union twenty one have at this time democratic State governments, and although three of these —California, Nevada, and Oregon—cast their electoral votes for Hayes, the ma jorities in several of the recognized repub lican States are so small that they maybe said to be almost equally divided between the two great parties. Even in Ohio, Mr. Hayes's own State, a change of3,600 votes would have given the election to the dem ocrats, while 1,500 votes in New Hamp shire, 500 in California, 100 in Oregon, 2,500 in Kbode Island and 500 in Nevada would have effected a like result in those States. Indeed, so narrow at tbe last election was the margin between the re publicans and democrats,in States claimed and held by the former that a change of 8,070 votes in a poll of 1,154,071 votes would have given forty-nine additional electoral votes to Tilden. Even in the New England States the republican ma jority in a vote of nearly 700,000 was less than 87,0000; in the Western State» in a vote of 2 , 00,000 but 182,000, and in the mountain and Pacific States but 5,785. The actual democratic majority on the popular vote, and accepting the Loui siana returning board count forthat State was 250,670, and the actual net demo cratic gain in nineteen States was 906, 456. It is well to remember there thf ngs. a fair WA.DE HAMPTON ON THE PRESI DENT'S ORDER. WASHINGTON AND GRANT CONTRASTED. On being informed of President Grant's older forbidding the white military organizations of Boutb Caro lina to parade on Washington's birth day. Gov. Wade Hampton issued the following proclamation : " 'Exkcutivb Cham bbr Columbia, B. C., Feb. 20, 1877—His Excellency the President cf tbe United States having ordered that the white militia companies of this State should not pa rada on the 22d inst. to celebrate Wash ington's birthday, in deference to the office he holds I hereby call upon these organizations to postpone to some fu ture day this manifestation of respect to the memory of thatillustrious Presi dent whose highest ambition it was, as it was his chief glory, to observe the Constitution and to obey tbe laws of this country. If the arbitrary com mand of a Chief Executive, who has not sought to emulate tbe virtues of Washington, deprive tho citizens of this mate of the priviege of joining publicly in paying reverence to that day so sacred to every American pa triot, we can at least, by our obei deuee to the constituted authority, however abruptly be the countrymen of Washington. We must, therefore, remit to some auspicious period, which I trust is not far distant, the exercise of oar right to commemorate tbe civic virtues of that unsullied char acter who wielded his sword only to found and perpetuate that American constitutional liberty which is now de nied to tbe citizens of South Carolina. Wadb Hampton, Governor. Fair Promises froi Gov. Hay». Judge Mackey, of South Carolina, was inlMacan. Ga., last week, and gave to the editor of the Telegraph and Messen ger an account of his visit to Gov. Hayes and said that the following were the ex act words used by the Governor on that occasion, they having been committed to writing at the time. Gov. Hayes said; "I regard the presidential contest, in the form that it has assumed, as most uncertain as to its result. I shall perform no act to influence that result, but do say unreservedly that the 'great need of the Booth is good government, and if I am President I shall use all legitimate agen cies to foster the establishment long disturbed section of intelligent and honest local self-government." in that In a Bankruptci Cask in Boston the United States District Court has very strongly laid down the rule that inducements must be offered to creditors to sigh a composition. In the case referred to the creditors asked leave to record a composition, but the court refused it because it appeared that the signature of one of the creditors had been obtained by another creditor, who told the signer that he would consider the signature a personal favor, upon the strength of which his trade would in the future be given to the signer. This fact, the court held, vitiated the composition, not merely destroying the effect of the signature. It further neld that in such I a case it made no difference that tbe composition was advantageous to the [ creditoi s. From Washington Union. Inell|flt>le Electors It «u Mr. Juitioe Bradley's misfor tune that be should bs selected as the fifteenth member of the Slecteral Commission— the umpire whose flat was to decide the presidential_ _ Whichever way he decided, if bia was the casting and decisive vote, he could not hope to escape censure and' attack. The criticism, however, to which his unenviable position as um pire—an umpire with ns decided poli tical proclivities and bias as any of his' colleagues—unavoidably exposed bin, is. after all a small burden compared with that to which he has exposed himself by his conflicting votes in the Florida and Louisiana cases. That there may be no doubt abeut the con flict, we quote the several propositi vus upon which he voted,first one way add; tbea the other. In the Florida case Judge Abbott offered a resolution that— a is of a "this Commission vW receive the ev lA s wsn relative to the eligibility of F. C. Hues S hrles, one of the persons named in corn cate NO. 1 as elector." 11 T For that resolution Mr. Justice Bradley voted, and it was adopted by a vote of eight to seven. The evidence relative to the eligibility of Humphries was evidence showing that on the Ttb, of November, 1870 the date of hieap pointment, Humphries held m offlae of trust and profit under the United States, to wit: the office of shipping commis sioner at the port of Pensacola, by ap pointment of the Circuit Court of the United States for the northern dis trict of Florida. This evidence, aa we , Justice Baidley held competent, and it was admitted. In the Louisiana case. Mr. Justice Bradley signed, and by bis casting vote carried a decision— "that it is not competent to prove that any of said persons so appointed electors a* aforesaid held an office of trust or proflt un der tho United States at the time when they wore appointed." The offer in the esse of Levis.ee,one of the Louisiana electors named in certificate number one, was that 04 the 7th of November, 1876, he held an office of trust and profit under the United States, to wit: the office of commissioner of the Circuit Court of the United Slates for the district of Louisiana, This evidence Mr- Justice Bradley voted "not competent, other words, Judge Bradley voted op posite ways upon the same question, and, unfortunately for himself, voted one way when the Democratic case was weak for want of proof, the ops Dosite way when it was conclusive and the proof not disputed. The effect of Mr. Justice first decision in tbe Florida case was. as we stated at the time, if honestly meant and adhered to, "a substantial and important victory for the Demo In the first place, it stultified tbe decision of the majority, (includ ing Judge Bradley,) that it was not competent to offer evidence aliunde the paper opened by the President of the Senate upon the subject of the ap pointment of the electors. Now, the Constitution of the United States ex pressly provides that no person hold ing an office of trust and proflt under the United States "shall be appointed." The inconsistency between the decis ion that no evidence aliunde the papers should be received, and the exception that evidence touching the eligibility of an elector would be received, lay iu the fact that if it was competent for the commission to go behind tiflcaie or the returns, either or both, to inquire into the qualification of a pereon certified and returned as ap pointed, it was necessary equally com petent to inquire whether any such persou had in fact been appointed, or whether there had been any appoint ment at all. Further, if honestly ad hered to, the decision concurred la by Judge Bradley, admitting evidence of ineligibility in the case of the Florida elector, applied to the cases of the Louisiana and Oregon eloctors, invol ved the loss of at least three votes to Mr. Hayes, without which he could not possibly be elected. This wan the substantial advantage to the Demo crats in the firstruling of the Com mission upon the admissibility of evi dence, and this is the reason why that ruling has been reversed. Having voted to admit certain evidence Mr. Justice Bradley now votes to exclude it. How he is to reconcile these con flicting votes—not with each ether, for that is impossible—but with his judical character and reputation, is his affair, not ours. In Bradley'» crats. the cer A G AMBLER'S MOREY WELL USED The will of Miss Maty Danser, wh» died suddenly in New York a few weeks since, ' has been made public. Hiss Danser was tbe only child of the late Matthias Danser, the well-known sporting man, who attained such no toriety seme time ago through the rob bery of coupons belonging to him, and who died not long after his loss. By the terras of Mr. Danser's will, his property, which was very large, was divided equally between his wife aud daughter. His widow did not long survive him, and her property was also willed to the daughter. Miss Danser was well known in religious circles, and was widely esteemed as a devout member of the Methodist Church aud a benevolent woman. At the time of her death she was about thirty-five years of age. The estate amouutato 11520 , 000 , of whicn $185.000 is distri buted among relatives of the family. The remainder is bequeathed iu vary ing proportion among thirty-one re ligious, benevolent and charitable so cieties of New Y'ork. Miss Alice Miles, daughter of the I kite Dr. Richard H.
