Bacteriologist Obtains Serum for Cure of Consumption. From Harper's Weekly. The announcement made recently to the Berlin Academy of Sciences by Prof. Emi! v?.n Behrintr of the results of his researches In consumption Is of the deepest import. Briefly, as the result of six years' Investi gation. Prof. Behrlog finds that tuberculosis in man and in cattle (and other animals) is one and the same disease?originating with one and the same germ. This, It need hardly be said. Is diametrically opposed to the vl.-ws of the famous Dr. Koch of Berlin. Prif. Behrlng has found that the disease bearing germ Is altered In passing from the blood of man to cattle, or the reverse; hence th?? confusion which has existed. But what la most important Is that Prof. Bthrlnt; has been able to Inoculate very jrour.K animals (hitherto found Impossible), and has obtained from these an antltoxine ?erum. after tbe manner that the small pox vaccine is cultivated. This is stirring news, and should It prove well grounded, another Nobel priae should be awarded this great bacterlol"gls;. The event will be awaited with the keenest interest. The hopes of a genuine cure for the "white plague" have been blighted so often that skepticism In this field has grown a habit. No known physical force, no Imagined un reality. no fad or folly known to the hu jrian ihind, has been neglected. It wqvild aeemj in the STafch To? a rerne<ty agalfist this most deadly enemy of the Tace. Every thing. from bare feet and electricity to a close semblance of the Filipino water cure, has been tried?nay. vaunted. The scourge goea on. Unto Prof. Behring. or whomso ever wresss the secret at last, every ifa'iion upon earth should erect a great memorial. such as the people of France raised to their beloved Pasteur. PARKS FOB THE PEOPLE. Turf Not So Much Hurt by Feet as Soil Exhaustion. From the ?leyelantJ Plain I>ealer. The question of removing or replacing "Keep ofT the grass" signs In public parks has become one of lively interest In many cities because of a report that the turf in Central Park. New York. Is In danger, on account of the crowds not being kept to the roads and paths. Comparison of experiences leads to the conclusion that it is not so much the feet of the people straying over the grass that has caused the mischief as the misjudgment of the park management. The turf is perishing because the soil is becoming ex hausted. Others parks have for years been free to the people, who are allowed to wan der where they please and settle themselves down on the cool turf In twos ani threes, and In larger family groups. Park parties gather ana school picnics bivouac under the shade of the trees, while th-; children romp and scamper in the open spaces with no "Keep off the grass" signs to scare them to the roads made perilous by swift auto mobiles or thronged with carriages. In spite of all this the grass in these parks flourishes, the turf seeming bo the better instead of the worse for tnts usage. The fiarks fire for the people. The only vay the masses of the people can enjoy then is by having the freedom o? the grass. The experience of other cities, as well as that cf Cleveland, Is that under reasonable regulations such use of the parks is not In jurious to the turf, provided care is taken to keep the soil In condition to supply thi grass icots with proper nourishment.

From the New York Sun. "A new industry has grown up in this country In the last few years," a down town jeweler told a Sun reporter. "It is the treatment and setting of crystals and minerals partly as Imitations of real pre cious stones and partly as art objects and ornaments which do not pretend to be any other than they are?simply pretty things. The extent of this Industry and the success of its products can hardly be realized by any one outside the jewelry trade. "Chemistry plays an important part in the Industry. It is remarkable what beau tiful effects can be secured with a bit of quartz by a chemist who has studied this phase of mineralogy. There is. for Instance, the so-called golden opal, which is not an opal at all. It is m.ide by boiling chalce dony, which is merely a species of quartz, in honey, then In a solution of chromate of lead, and finally baking it in hydrochloric acid kept at a moderate heat for k few weeks. "In the same way deep red carnellans are produced by skillfully burning the pale or dull chalcedonies. Black agate, popular for mourning jewelry, Is made by similar methods. Other colors and stripes are ob tained by boiling chalcedony in such solu tions as blood and water, sugar and water and molasses and water, and after it has absorbed these boiling it in sulphuric acid. Agates are easily converted into onyx like substances which lapidaries use for cameos and intaglios. Any colored onyx can be obtained by simple chemical pro cesses. In fact, modern chemistry has pro duced such changes In stones and minerals that It is possible to Imitate many of them and Improve upon all but a very few. "Not only can the whole stone be made to change Its color, but sections and lines of it can be mftdu to assume a red, black, yellow or white tone, while the rest stays pure white plafJ< Rock crystal, which is simply pure quartz. Is employed to a much greater extent than ever before for imitating diamonds and other precious stones. These cap be cut and polished to almost as rich a brilliancy as the real stones, though, of course, they soon lose their luster and must be recut to regain It. "Agate is used in many different ways for ornamenting trinkets. Small but beau tiful amethysts are found in Pennsylvania, Maine and North Carolina and In Wyo ming are large masses of moss agates. In fact, chemistry applied to comparatively cheap minerals and skillful treatment of them has made It possible for pfople far from wealthy to possess excellent Imita tions of jewelry which themselves are al most priceless." THE COLLECTING HABIT. A Mania Which Attacks Men of Every Kind. From the New York Kve>nlng Post. The collecting habit is a malady that few have escaped, the evidences of it being ap parent in all ages and climes: nor are the years of a man's susceptibility limited as they range lrom infancy to honorable age. Not even poverty can insure, immunity from the contagion or spontaneous develop ment of the symptoms: on the contrary, the purest type of the collector Is the man who has not the wherewithal to acquire on sight the prize he discovers, but must un dergo picturesque privations In the byways of necessity, In order to hope for the ulti mate possession of the luxury. As to the antiquity of this absorbing pastime, the most famous collection was the most an cient?namely, the specimens selected and placed In Noah's ark, the first cabinet. One form of the craze which has turned to the lasting good of science is the. delight which the naturalist takes In hunting out specimens of various forms of life. The career of the natural scientist of an adven turous spirit Is a romantic one, as he beats his path into the heart of the jungle in quest of a suspected orchid, or digs Into the depths of the earth for a relic of former mineral or animal life. Then, too, what great pleasure is gained from the collec tions of really beautiful things, the can vases of some Inspired master ,the inimi table Japanese prints which have but re cently become accessible to the countries outside that of their origin, or the wonder ful Italian marbles cut in a graceful age. Hut from many collections resulting from less grave motives than these, a more mixed enjoyment is had by the owners of them and the general public when It is admitted to the cherished presences. Wine Opening Habit. From the New York Sun. An embezzling cashier examined In the Tombs police court had the habit of "buy ing champagne." The technical name of this ofTense is "opening wine." It Is one of the characteristics of the "chump" or "sucker," and seems to be especially dear to persons of limited or doubtful Incomes. Thousands of men and office boys have cooked accounts or tapped the till for the brief glory of a few hours of "opening wine." The uptown lobster palace or even an ordinary bar room will serve as the the ater for these Intellectual performances. Local politicians have somewhat outgrown the "wine-opening' habit, we believe. A few years ago some of them were only too happy to "open wine" on the bar. The manners of politicians have been much im proved; and eVeti' "sports" of the more conservative jsghoai have acquired a higher taste in this matter, but unchanged by time, unafraid of want and the peniten tiary, the "wine opener" or "wine buyer" survives. He has his knot of parasites and his little fling. Tl^e born "wine opener" is fated. He cbn't escape the habit or dis ease. Probably disease; and a disease that seems to prevail most among those who can least afford It: Death in Old Wall Paper. From the New York Herald. Union painters: affiliated with the Hudson County (N. Jj) Building Trades Council have sent petitions to the various health board* In the county asking them to adopt ordi nances compelling paperhangers to remove old wall paper In rooms before new paper Is placed on the walls, the painters claim ing that disease germs lurk In old wall paper. This action Is the result of the death of Mr. Atkins, a painter, who died of smallpox a few days ago. The "Bridge" Woman Pays. From the Lady's Pictorial Magazine. Many women appear to devote their whole lives to gambling. But they pay?they pay! The bridge woman, by her faded face, her early-wrinkled features, by her pitiable state of nerves, the whisky and soda that she drinks Instead of tea. the ceaseless ef fort by drug and stimulant to string her self up to the necessary gambling pitch, and you know that nothing short of a mir acle can Bave that woman, though a male gambler can, and often does, save himself. -r?ir?wir-Tr- v~v~-* If vou suffer with hot PERSPIRING FEET?TRY the "RES J LI A" ponRMEN.Shot* Unprecedented June Shoe Selling caused by unprecedented prices. * Who ever heard of end-of-season shoe prices in June?

An echo of the late war in South Africa is to be found in New York in the form of ornaments made from the sakabula plumes. They are very beautiful. They are made by a widow of a Boer officer, who is now trying to support herself In this way. The sakabula is as rare a bird In South Africa as the impeyan is in the Himalayas. It be longs to the pheasant family, and bears some resemblance to the banklva In the Philippines. The tail feathers are curv?d, slender and of a wonderful chestnut color, v^hich shades from the lightest hne into a red brown, almost maroon. At the tip of each feather is a white eye, which throws the surrounding tint into very high relief. The other feathers are small and brilliant, some of them having a semi-metallic luster on the edge. They were used by the Zulu and Mata bele warriors-as an ornament of the high est value, and are said to have many su perstitions attaching to them. They are a part of the head dressing of the chiefs and of the professional uniform of the witch finders. These medicine men manufac tured a head-dressing of the plumage, com bined with small, dried bladders, skewers pnd ornaments, fashioned out of tusks and lions' teeth. The tail feathers stood up and produced an effect that was both pictur esque and ghastly. Kaiser's Childless "Ancestor." From the Ixjndon Chronicle. In his telegram to President Roosevelt offering a statue of Frederick the Great to the American people the German em peror refers to his "ancestor's" well-known friendly attitude toward the young Ameri can republic during the course of her for mation; but his majesty might have been more explicit by saying that Frederick was the first European sovereign to recognize the independence of our rebellious colo nists. It is also notorious, though it was not to be expected of the kaiser that he should have alluded to the fact, that in recognizing this independence the hero of Rossbach was not so much animated by a love of the Americans, least of all their republic?which was a form of government abhorrent to him?as by a hatred of Great Britain. The present action of the emperor may be paralleled with that of his grand father, William I, who presented to the town of Peterhead, in Aberdeenshire, a re plica of the statue of Field Mar shal Keith. which stands. with other similar monuments to the mem ory of the seven years' war, on the Wil helmsplatz, Berlin, over against Bismarck's old palace. For the rest, it is strictly speak ing not correct of the emperor to refer to Frederick as his "ancestor." seeing that his majesty is only descended from a brother of the great king, who nev;r had any children. Syrian Asphalt. From the American Asphalt Journal. Asphalt is found in the provinces of Syria on the banks of the Dead sea. floating on the surface of Its waters. Through the ac tion of earthquakes the asphalt has been torn from the bottom of the sea and driven toward the shores, especially to the east. The narratives of the Greek and Roman historian to the effect that asphalt as small Islands was upheld by the salt water and driven over the surface of the sea are without doubt true. This asphalt, and gen erally the oriental or Egyptian, is pure and expensive, and used principally In the man ufacture of a certain kind of varnlah, but for general purposes, owing to its brlttle ness as well, is useless In the asphalt in dustry. Mrs. Ernestine Schaffner, the original "Tombs Angel," is dead, at her home, 70 West 50th street New York, at the age of seventy. Baltimore, Md. Atlanta, (Ja. EISEMAN BROS., Cor.

From the Dayton Herald. % There has been no one agent so far-reach ing In Its effect in beautifying cities as the street paving material, whether It be block, brick or asphalt. When gravel or cobbles or boulders were done away with and brick or asphalt was substituted for the Im provement and building of streets the first foundation of clean and handsome cities was laid. These materials have not only enabled the making of clean and noiseless streets, but they have forced other Im provements?better sidewalks, graceful curbing and a general fixing up of resi dence fronting#, no matter in what part of the city they have been put. Asphalt and cement have worked wonders, have become substitutes for stone and at a much less cost. There never has been auch a aentl ment for beautifying c'ties as there is now. and in many places persons are devoting ail their energies to the work, not for profit, but for the general good. Future generations will rise up and call them blessed. Parliamentary Frontiers. From the WMtDlMUr G?xette. On either side of the commons chamber of our parliament house there Is a distinct line along the floor, and any member who. when speaking, steps outalde the line on his side Is liable to be called to order. Thesu lines are supposed to be aclentlflc frontiers, and the neutral ?one between Is beyond tfc* length of a sword thrust, and although members no longer wear swords, except those who are selected to move and second addresses to the throne en certain occa sions. the old precaution still lingers on.
