How the Dreadful lllacnin U Allowed to

Alfred A. Green, of 327 East Seventeenth
street, who has written to tho Board of
Health, in Philadelphia, saying that ho could
euro cases of leprosy, nnd wished to go thoro
nnd oporato upon Mrs. Mirando and her
daughter, says thnt ho is not n physician, but
simply a humblo Christian who knows a
thing or two and has scon many lepers. Mr.
Greon was not nt homo to-day when a
Would roportcr called upon him.
A gentleman nowf in this city, who has livod
twenty years off and on in tho Holy Land,
whore leprosy first originated, says that ho
must doubt vory muoh whotbor Mr. Green
or anybody olso can euro a real caso of lep.

English physician said that he could euro
this loathsome disease, nnd ho went out to
Jerusalem, whoro it is so prevalent, to put
his theory into practice For six months ho
camo iuto closo contact with tho lepers, tak
ing no precautions while trying to euro them.
Ho caught tho disease nnd wns reportod to
)iao committed suioido, preferring inunodi
nto death to dying by inches. Sinco then it
has been conceded by all physicians that lep
rosy is iuourablo.
In Jaffa, Jerusalem, Itamlch and othor
citios in Palestine tho travcllor has to pass
lepers daily, begging in tho streets, and they
will often pluck people by tho Bleove or cont
tail with their stubby lingers to obtain a
" siihtont" (fifth part of n rout).
Leprosy is not as catching now as it used to
bo. A person is only liublo to cntch it if ho
touches or comes into closo contact with u

Turkish Government would prudent lepers

Twcnty-two boots started to-day for Groy
town, Nicaragua. Ono was n stool steamship
of 1,012 tons burden, painted a Quakerish
brown, tho Hondo, bound on her regular
trip, but carrying on unusual passenger list.
Anothor was tho Sam Sloan, whioh slipped
her moorings atTwonty.sooond stroot, North

big boat as far as tho Narrows nnd then camo

a part of tho equipment of tho Nicaragua
Canal expedition. Thoy nro tho cruising

about ton miles from Groytowu.
Tho canal is a big thing. Nations havo
talked nbout It, nnd wagged thoir heads in
approval, nnd tho world at lnrge, nud tho
stockholders in particular, hopo to gather
abundant shokols from this surgical opera
tion on tho nock of tho Atnorlons.
On tho Hondo wero thirtv-elght englneors,

woro taking a flvo-mlle fnrowell of tho festlvo

They have no weather bureau in Nicnrogua
to arrange tho temperature and regtilato wind

plavful disregard of tho population. Tho
cngincors will hnvo to stand tho eccentrici

thoy may havo an unpleasant assortment of

lioth tho Hondo and tho Bam Sloan had n
