Experiments on white rats designed to gather Information bearing upon the recent fatalities from lockjaw In Cnm den, X. J., nre In progress at Cooper's hospital, says the New York World. Drs. Alexander, Scanlon, Uoss nnd H. Udwaiil Frets, are endeavoring to learn If the vaccine virus Is the medi um of communleatlng tetanus germs. In explaining their work they said: "Should our Investigation show that tetanus was a probable unfortunate concomitant of vncclnntlon we will not concent the fact. Hut, on the other hnud, If our Investigation upholds vac cination, In spite of the pre valency of tetanus, wo feel that wo could , en courage tho people to bo vaccinated without fear.

' The comern was Invented by an Ital ian named Haptlsta Porta, though It was not at drat used for photograph ing. It was In reality merely a dark room, Into which the light was admit ted through n little round holo In ono side, Tho rays of light coming from objects outside of this room entered It through this aperture and made a pic ture on tho other side of the room glow ing In all the beauty and color of na ture Itself, but rather Indistinct and upside down. This dark room wan contrived by Por ta about tho middle of the sixteenth century. He Improved It later by plac ing a glass lens In the aperture and outsldo a mirror which received tho xnysof light and reflected them through tho lens so that that Imago upon the opposite wall within was mado much brighter, more distinct and In n natu ral or erect position. This was really tho first camera oi)scura, an Invention which Is enjoyed to tho present day, being situated often upon a hilltop, .where a plcturesnuo country surround- lug may bo reflected through n lens iwhlch is placed In tho center of tho conical roof. Now, our modern photographic cam era Is merely a small comera obscurn In Its simplest form, carrying a lens nt ono end and a ground glass screen nt the other. It Is, however, often much moro complicated In Its construction. j Shnpiilns In Athens. In his volume on "Modern Athens," Georgo Morton says that shopping In (the Greek capital Is n more elaborate, time consuming and minute process oven than with us. "Tho oriental .method of doing business Btlll prevnlls, The dealer sets a price, the buyer an other, aud often three or four hours of iiatlent will coutest pass before n com' promise Is reached. The patron asks, How much Is this pleco of silk?' 'Ono dollar a yard,' Is the reply. 'Thirty .cents' Is offered. The merchant Is .thrown Into something resembling an apoplectic lit. Mo swears by his fa ther's soul that It co-t 05 cents, "The lady takes a seat with a sigh nnd after twenty minutes inquires in nocently, 'Finally, 30 cents?' 'Never! Hut to keep you aud not loso your cus torn, vou may have It for what I paid, 05 cents.' 'You poor thlngl' sighs the lndv sarcastically. Thero are n dozen or more women sitting about tho store "When finally tho proprietor comes down to a prlco that ouo Is willing to Me stnrts from the assumption that Germany must ono dny be Involved In b conflict becauso the growth of her trafllc and commerce Is a sourco of danger to England. He holds the oplu- Ion that Germany might hope to secure some success nt sen shortly after hos tilities began, as tho German navy woultsturt mobilization first, but be fore long Ihiglaud would be able to set such powerful naval forces In action that Germany would bo reduced to de fensive tactics. In which success could not bo reckoned upon. Ills paper proceeds: "PJngland's weakness Is our strength. The laud forces of the English army correspond neither In strength nor In quality with her position as a great power. England Is convinced that ev ery hostile Invuslou can be prevented by her fleet, but this conviction Is not by any means well fouuded. Even If England after a tlyio could sot In mo tion great naval forces, thoso which would bo ready at tho beglunlng arc not so overwhelming that an oppouetit csseutlally weaker at sea who has ev erything ready may not have a chance of scorlus a temporary success. Ger many must throw part of her land forces on tho English coast and thus bring the con (1 let to nn Issue on laud, where German troops are much supe rlor to English." After summing up the shortcomings of England's land forces the baron de clnrcs that only her present standing nnny and regular reserve can bo count- -cd on In case of sudden Invasion, ns tho others would tnke n considerable time to mobilize. He observes: "Wo must also take account of their slight fighting vnluo compared with well tralucd Gorman troops. The only troops ready In England for action are three divisions of the First army corps, nbout two divisions of tho Second and a combined division of tho Third, to gethor with thrco cavalry brigades The strength of un English dlvlslou on a war footing Is only 10,000 men, whllo n similar German division numbers nbout 111,000 men. Germany can trans- nort six Infantry divisions or ono cav alry brlgado and flvo Infautry division! to England In n vory sliost time. How tho operation could bo carried out must not, of course, bo explained hero, but this can bo said, that It can bo done within little moro than thirty hours In favorablo weather from German har bors In tho North sea. Largo tracts of tho English coast furnish good landing places for troops, and tho country Itself has so inauy resources that an invnu Ing nrmy could llvo on Uiem for a long time. On the other hand, tbo Island Is not large enough to allow Kugllsb troops to destroy a onco victorious hos tile army. It Is unlikely that such a war would last very long, and consld erablo re-enforcements would, thro fore, not be needed." ty-ono wblto rats were obtained be causo of their marked susceptibility to the virus tetanus. On tho morning of tho 18th the rats were Inoculated. The anlmalsVero each Isolated 'n sep arate cages especially prepared for tho purpose In order to prevent contnmlua,- tlon. The box was labeled with the name of the druggist who sold the specimen, the producer and tho time nt which tho Inoculation was per formed. After each Inoculation Instru ments nnd the hands of the expedl- mentors were again thoroughly steril ized and all apparatus mado aseptic. "The Inoculated nnlmnls nre fed at regular Intervals, visited every Uirce or four hours and watched for symp toms. Itccords will bo made, nnd the results will be given to tho board of health." Parents nre Bending unvncclnated children to the public schools. No new cases of tetanus have been reported. and the two youthful victims who alone survlvo of all those attacked with tho disease after vaccination were reported to bo slightly Improved the other day. NOVEL "MUSTACHE BINDER' Dunorlptlon of n Contrivance UMeil hy the Knlner. A few samples of scbnurrbartblndo have been received nt Washington from Merlin. Hut they nre not on sale. They nre too precious for mere barter. There may bo a big demand for them next season, especially If Kaiser Wll helm decides to build a challenger for tho America's cup, says the Pittsburg Dispatch. He has a large collection of them. He needs one several times n day or else that upward twist of his mustache would soon disappear. He needs a schnurrbartblnde as much as a lady to whom nature has not been kind In the matter of curls needs n curling Iron. This schnurrbartblnde' Is n contrnp- tton of silk gauze on n wire frame, two llttlo leather straps and two pieces of elastic web. The samples now here were brought over by young men who aro wearing the cuds of their mus taches pointing upward like church steeples. The maker of this toilet arti cle avers that tho emperor Is the in ventor. Tho schn nnd nil tho rest of It Is formed somewhat like a bat with wings extended. When Emperor Wil liam summons his hairdresser, that functionary brings n binder with him. His Imperial majesty's mustache Is tucked up as he weani It. and the schnurrbartblnde Is fastened behind his head. It stays there uutll the em peror has had his shampoo and nil parts of his face not covered by the coiitrlvanco nre shaved. Then the bind ing Is removed, and tbo result Is that Wonderful upward twist. For the benefit of those who haven't their dictionaries at hand the combina tion of sixteen letters may be translat ed as meaning "mustache binder." In Horlln It Is whispered not spoken aloud, because that would bo leze majesty that tho emperor uses a sort of paste to keep tho ends of his mus tache standing. Noyel Moose Call, A now kind of mooso call, says tbo IConnebcc Journal, Is In use down In Washington county. It Is the whistling buoy near tho entrance of Moosabec reach, and It Is said to bo tho causo of tho big bull mooso which for several weeks has been known to froquent tho shore In that section lingering In that vicinity.
