There was some ginger in the game yes?
terday between the Colts and the New?
port News team, and for three innings it
looked as though the vlsitors would win.
The Colts. however. scttled down in the
fourth inning and got a lead which they
inrreased as the game proceeded, until tae
visitors were left far behind.
The game was not one of brilliant plays,
but it was interesting. The vlsitors fought
bra\-ely for victory, and took defeat hard.
even going so far as to argue with ihe
umpire upon several occasions.
Hooker pitched in good shape for the
Coits. and Bigbie, another young Rich?
mond player, did good work for the vlsit?
ors. The Colts' hitting was above the
average, Hoolcer being the only man that
failed to connect safely.
There Is some good material in the New?
port News aggregation. and the individual
playcrs go at the game with vim. They
are llable to win out to-day lf they con
tinue to hold the ginger they started out
?with. Both tcams showed some enterpris
Ing base-running. reckless at times, but
still e.niertaining for the crowd.
The game as piven by the State Beague
clubs is QUite as interesting and^exciting
as that given by any league that has ever
plajvd here. It may not be as fast. but
the clubs are as close together as ln any
league, and that is rfS that is necessary
to keep up the interest of the game.
This afiernoon a close game is expected.

The address before the graduating clas.s
was delivered by Dr. Charles A. B. Reed,
of Cincinnati. O. His remarks were well
received and frequently punctured with ap
plause. Dr. Reed spoke, in part, as fol?
lows :
"One of the fhoughts that ccme to me
unbidden on such an occasion as this is.
what Would be the condition of society if
there were no such exercises as these?
What, lndeed, let me ask. wculd be the
condition of society, if there were no medi?
cal professiofi? If we do not consider the
whole state of society, still what under
such clrcumstances would be the condition
of the healing art? How may we answer
this question? It is obvious'y unfair to
take the crude notions of inferior races as
criteria; it is, howc-ver, perfectly proper
to take those primitlve notions of medicine
as they exist in the. minds of primitive
representatives of superior peoples?I now
alitide to those poeple of whatever grade?
whose intellects are not illumed with the
intelligence which constantly radiates from
the medical profession. Their crude con
ceptions, comprising what is property desig
nated as 'folk medicine.' have been collated,
By the light of that research,
I am enable to give you some
idea of what would eomprise medical teach
ing, if it were not for the medical profes?
sion. Bet us Imagine that T am your pro
fessor?your Professor of Folk Medicine?
and that you are my students. I am about
to leetiire to you and I begin thus: Re
member. now, there is no medical science
as we to-day understand it. but I have
gathered together the knowledge of the
world on diseases and their cures, and I
am giving you the first installment of that
wisdom. Well. remembering this we begin.
"You have assembled to-day to learn how
to keep away diseases and how to cure
them. But before we can do this we must
(ind out what causes them. To begin with,
as everybody knows there are spirits?and
among spirits there ls a great splrlt that
is above all other spirits. We are born and
we die by the grace of the Great Spirit,
for he not only glveth, but he takelh away.
All diseases are efforts at death. and hence
are caused by the spirits. When diseases
don't kill us ifs because the spirits want
to punish or persecute us. Now. when a
person dies. his spirit goes to the spirit
world and becomes powerful, more power
ful than it ever was in the flesh. Now,
that we understand spirits, you will see at
a giance that diseases must be caused?are
caused in one of three particular ways, viz:
"First. By the anger of an offended spir?
it that has been liberated front its earthy
"Second. By the displeasure of powerful
spirits that always have. belonged to ihe
spirit world.
"Third. By the enmity of a spirit, yet
ablding in human form, but which has
acquired superhuman power by organ
izing a trust under the presid'ency of the
devil (keep your eye on the devil, he is
an important faetor in our philosophy?
ln fact, we couldn't make it hang to
gether without him).
"Now, spirits, whether gods of high or
low degree, or those of men by death
set free. 'move in a mysterious way their
wonders to perform.*" Having all power
they can do all thlngs. They speak and
work often by entering into and assuming
the form of stones, trees, bushes; they
speak in the rustling of the wlnd and
in the babbMng of the brook: they may
take the form of chirping birds or of
lowing kine, but they much prefer to
operate through the instrurr.entality of
warloeks, wames and witches, wisacres
and wizards, sorcerers and soothsayers,
magiclans and rnagnetizers. They are
especially effectlve if they can borrow
the wrinkled visage of some old crone,
although they often work sad havoe by
assuming the -form of a lovely miss?
an axiom which,ls not restricted to the
annals of folk-medlelne.

causation of diseases, it only remains
for me on this introductory lecture to j
speak of the general prlnciples of cure.
Remember. 'ris but plain logic tnau to j
cure a disease we must have power to j
inffuence or circumvent the spirtt uiat f
causes it. Now. one of the easiest ways j
out of the dilemma is to fool Mr bpmt
bv giving the disease away, transtcrnn0
it to some'object ahimate or lnammate. i
Let me illustrate: -.A Scotchman goes to (
the cross roads. lifts up.a stone. .rubs
his warts upon it and replaces it, saymg.
*''A'm ane, the. warts twa, j
The first ane it came bv
Tacks the warts awa." |
"Ar.d the first poorchap that happens .
to pick up that "stone gets the warts.
A goutv old Gcrman goes on thrcc suc
cessive days to a fir-tree and says:
?Tannenbaum ich klage dir ? die glcht |
plagh mich schier,' after which the tree j
Withers and the gbiit Is cured. So emi- |
nent an authority as Pierius advises that
a patient mav transfer his disease to an
ass by sitting on the animal with his
face to the tail (of course, this is cruel
worse than viviscction. and I commend lt
to the solemn attention of the Hiunane
"As we progress in the treatment of
particular diseases. we shall discover
many pewerful agencies for overcaming
our spiritual tormentcrs. We may es
eape them by goin'g through the form
of a new birth. We may placate them
by offering sacrifiees. or we may invoke
the power and protection of our Lord,
to say nothing of the saiivts. both male
and female. We may frighten away the
evil spirits by the terror of the grave,
by the charm of color, by the magic of
numbers.' We have at our disposal the
powerful agency of the sun, moon and
other planets. Herbs and roots and
salves and teas will cure if but properly
prepared by charmed hands. Animals
have strange powers to cure. as is well
known to every Scotch lassie who has
cured her stye by rubbing it with the
tom cat's tail. Then. too, there are
among men those of peculiar power.
"Now, let me drop my character as
prbfessor of folk-medicine and resume
that of your orator. at least long_enbugh
to assure you that what I have just
said' must in the light of careful and
schblarly research by members of the"
Folk Lore Society, ftotably, Mr. William
George Balck.- be a*ccepted as a reason
ab-e syllabus of what an introductory
lecture on meiricine would be, were the
medical science' of to-day unknown. I
fear, however. that I hav^ not made
myself sufficiently clear. What I have
said has been too much in the nature
of glittering genoraiities. Permit me to
pass from the absti-act to the concrete.
The -class will again corae to order while
T resume my ?ins'ructions by taking
up some diseases in the treatment of

"It was my intention to discuss the treat?
ment of a few other diseases, ,but I dis?
cover t'hat to do so takes more time than
is at my disposal. I had accupamulated
careful notes on the treatment of, for ex
ample, whooping cough. This is a disease
which calls for dlverse remedies: Wrap a
spider in a plece of muslin, pin it to the
mantelpiece; when the spider dies the dis?
ease wlll be well. Dig a hole in the mead
ow, cutting away the sod in a single piece;
into this hole place the afflicted child In a
stooping posture and cover it up for a few
minutes with the.piece of sod; as soon as
the child is heard to cough it is removed,
when the cough is surely cured. Pass the
child over and under a donkey three times,
or In a bad case, thrice, three times; or,
nine stones shall be taken from a stream
of running water, heat.them red hot, drop
them into a quart of water from the same
stream, bottle it up and give some of it to
the patient for each of nine mornings. Or
tie nine knots In a string and hang it
around the patlent's neck: or follow any
advice that may be given by a man riding
a piebald horse. Or have the child eat
some currant cake from the hands of a
woman who has married without changing
her name; or better still, from a woman.
who, after having been a widow, has re
gained her maiden name by a second mar
riage. If currant cake is thought unwhole.
some, or if you can't find a person of the
above descrlption from whom to receive it,
just let it go, but give the little victim
a diet of fried mice prepared by just 'any
old body.' Theje are numerous other val
uable. remedies, but these are chiefly to be
relied upon.
"I can't let this audience?I bsg pardon?
I mean my class, separate without jjiving
some timely advice as to how to cure
rheumatism: Take frog's spawn. put it in
a crock. cover it with slate, bury the
crock for three months in the garden, then
take it up and rub t'he pains. or I should
say the parts in which the pains are lo
cated, with what you find in the crock (I
am informed thac in consequence of the
abundance of frogs, this cure is in general
use and ls highly esteemed in Tonawanda).
Beg or steal a chestnut. but don't buy or
permit anybody to give you one?and this ls
no chestnut. Keep a pet sr.ake?from
which, as a rule. no dahger need be appre
hended, as rheumatic patients are liab'e to
have taken abundant liquld precautions
against snake bites. If, however, there is
any delicacy on the subject?particulariy
01 the part o? the ladies?the same object
may be attained by wearlng a snake skin
around the neck, or, as is done ia New
Bngland, take the old cat to bed with
them! |

law Is most likely to prevail.
He oalled attention to the fact that with
the passage or" time. since the abolition of
slavery, the crime seems to grow in Im?
portanee. He said that for fair decislon
on the question of lynching, lt was neces

Mr. King gave two reasons why extra
judlclal means are resorted to. namely:
"The delay of legal punlshment and fhe
protection of the victlm of the assault
from the ordeal of the wltness chair."
Mr. King sugg'sted two remedies for
mob violence. He thought that when a

member should be sworn in as a deputy
sheriff by the sheriff of the county and a
memorandum of his name taken. In case
