J Theodor Mommsen was born at
Garding, in Schleswig, on Nov. SO,
1817, and received his early education
from his father, who was an evangeli- j
- cal preacher. From the gymnasium:
He went to the University of Kiel,
"where he plunged into a study of five
or six languages, history and litera-
. tur^ He collaborated with Ji^s.
brother Tycho on a volume of verse,
but that was so severely criticised as
being wholly lacking in poetic grace,
beauty or rhythm that Mommsen
never repeated, the experiment.
In 1842 he received the degree of
Ph. D. The next year he published
his "De Gollegi is et Sodelitiis Ro
manorum," the first of a- long series
of works. This and another similar
book made him known as a writer of
great thoroness, lucidity and beauty
of style, his German being pronounced
as good as any ever written. As his

That blood poison existed among/the ancients has
been proven beyond question. It has been traced back
thousands of years, and is as old as the Pyramids. This
blighting curse has been handed down from nation to
nation and from individual to individual till it has
spread to all parts of the world.
| ^ Contagious blood poison, as it is called in modern
times, begins with a small sore or ulcer through which
I the virus enters the blood. This is followed by inflam
mation and swelling of the glands of the groins, a red eruption breaks out
on the body, sores appear in the mouth and the throat becomes ulcerated, and
as the disease takes a deeper hold and the blood becomes more thoroughly
infected, the hair and eyebrows drop out, the skin is spotted with copper-col-
ored splotches, the bones and muscles ache, and it seems to the victim of
this monster scourge there is not a sound spot in the whole body.

can never be told. The one who con-,

Mommsen became known alap fprf bit
terness and sometimes arrogance in
controversies. Y ' j ' /*
This spirit took him Into the jlolltl
cal field as a radical agitator fof ^con
stitutional progress. He was then
professor of Roman law at Ijeipsic,
and his activity caused the govern
ment to arrest him for inciting the
people. The courts acquitted him, but
the Saxon, government dismissed him
from his professorship. '
Mommsen was then called to a
chair in the legal faculty at Zurich.
There he wrote two monographs and
the first volume of his history of
Rome. In 1854 he became a pro
fessor of Roman law at Breslau, and
in 1858 went to the University of Ber
lin. Hardly had he been installed
there when he got into a literary
quarrel with his brother August. They
became completely estranged by the
controversy. - ^
- v . Enmity to Bismarckr:
, dted at
Berlin, Nov. 2.Prof.
' Mommsen, the , historian,,
He passed away without
consciousness after his attack of apo
plexy. The change from life to death
was observed only by his attending
, physician, who watched all night
long with the family.
Emperor William and various les
ser German sovereigns have sent their
condolences to the Mommsen fam-
From 1871 to 1882 he fought Bis
marck in speeches whose bitterness
indicated almost a mania. In 1882
he made, at his home at Charlotten
burg, a Bpeech in which he characterr
ized Bismarck's tariff policy a pure
swindle. To defy Bismarck was dan
gerous at any time to call him a
swindler meant serious trouble.
Mommsen was arrested and tried for
slander. He was acquitted at Berlin
and later at the high court of appeals
at Leipsic, where the case was taken.
It was a great victory.
At.the University of Berlin, Momm
sen was always less a teacher than a
student, and those who enrolled in his
course often found that instead of re
maining at his chair the great histo
rian had gone off to Italy for more
material. His thin, long, gray
later, whitehair, yellow face, promi
nent crooked nose and glaring, pug
nacious, penetrating eyes made, a
combination typical of his kind. Al
tho his history of Rome was the most
popular'of his works, his monumental
"Corpus Inscriptionum Latinariuni" is
regarded by scholars as his best work.
A complete list of his writings, made
fifteen years ago, took up sixty closely
printed pages, and Mommsen kept on
writing after that. In 1880 part of
his library was destroyed by fire. Con
tributions from scholars from all over
the world replenished the collection.

mgton Booth Not Present.
New York, Nov. 2.Funeral serv
ices over the remains of Emma Booth
Tucker, consul of the Salvation Army
in America, were held yesterday after
noon in Carnegie hall.
The auditorium was filled to over
flowing and hundreds of persons who
had been unable to gain entrance
streets until the cere
moniees had been concluded that they
mighit file past the catafalque and look
fac of the dead Salvationist.
The services, which were conducted
by Colonel B. J. Higgins, chief secre
tary of the Salvation Army in America,
were most impressive and consisted of
a musical program made up of the
favorite hymns of the dead woman
and by eulogies of her life and of the
good she had done for mankind. The
grief of Commander Booth-Tucker
was most poignant, * and as he knelt
by the bier, sobbing pathetically, the
greater part ci' the vast congregation
wept with him.
General Ballington Booth of the
Volunteers of America did not remain
for the memorial service. According
to his secretary, he had endeavored
to arrange for a family gathering and
short private services in Carnegie hall
before the public funeral service. Gen
eral Booth arrived at the hall three
quarters of an hour,ahead of time and
waited for the expected family gath
ering, but learning that it would not
take place, he left, saying that he did
not care to stay for the public services.
Herbert Booth, his brother, who was
formerly commander-in-chief of the
Salvationists in Australia, at the re
quest of the general, remained to rep
resent the family, and if possible to
say a few words to the audience. Her
bert Booth twice asked permission
from Commander Booth-Tucker to
speak but each time it was refused.
Commissioner Eva Booth was to have
spoken, but she was too overcome by
grief to do so. At the close of the
services, however, she rendered a
prayer. Cablegrams were read from
General William Booth and Chief
Bramwell Booth of the international
headquarters, London, at the funeral.
CASTLE STRIKES BACK
Treasury Department Auditor At
tacks Postmaster General Payne
in His Report.
"Washington, Nov. 2.H. A. Castle,
auditor for the postoffice department,
who is soon to retire, has delivered a
caustic valedictory in the form of his
annual report, which arraigns lax ad
ministrative methods employed in the
department and which, in effect, holds
the postmaster general largely ac
countable for the recent scandals.
In criticizing the methods of ac
counting thru congressional inaction
he points out wherein over $40,000,000
annually has been and is being paid
out upon mere certificates without
check or review.
He says no account is kept by the
auditor of postage stamps, stamped
paper and envelops, etc., nor is there
any between the department and man
ufacturers or contractors for furnish
ing such paper. He adds:
"The reprehensible practice has at
times prevailed in the postoffice de
partment, sartetioned by law, but op
posed to correct accountings'methods,
of paying some portions of expendi
tures from annual departmental, mis
cellaneous, incidental expense, and
even from salary appropriations by
authorizing a .postmaster, notably sit
Washington city, to make such pay
ments instead of by warrant thru the
auditor's office in the regular way."
Castle quotes the law to absolve
himself from blame in connection with
his failure to detect bribery in con
nection with the purchase of patented
articles for the department.
The report says the aggregate trans
actions of .the postal service during the
fiscal year were $1,026,731,408, as fol
lows: Revenues, $134,224,443 ex
penditures, $138,784,488 total amount
of money orders issued, $388,865,584:
money orders paid, $364,856,895.
