Kiiropcan Hospitals Practicing a Method of
liiooii Iitoctilntlon,
So ninny thousands of children arc
annually carried off by diphtheria, the
Bufferings caused by tho disease are so
agonizing and the remedies hitherto nt
the disposal of tho medical profession so
Inadequate that the news of tho intro?
duction into tho Berlin and London hos?
pitals of a new and efficacious enro for
this fell malady cannot bo regarded
otherwise than as a matter of public in?
Very little has been heard about this
remedy, owing to the fact that tho dis?
tinguished bacteriologists ongnged in
its discovery have been unwilling to
subject themselves to tho same disad?
vantage as Dr. Koch, whose cure for
consumption has been unjustly pro?
claimed a failure merely because it
was published to tho world prematurely
and before it was ready for medical ap?
plication. The new cure, briefly speak?
ing, is one of inoculation, with this
dilToreucc?that, instead of injecting
the poison into the system of the pa?
tient, one injects the blood id' an ani?
mal which has been iuocnhited witli a
weak culture of the diphtheria bacte?
ria, the virus of the latter hcing, how
ever, of so weak a characti r that it dot -;
not nffect the animal with the malady,
but merely renders it immune thereto.
Repeated experiments made of late I
have shown that a few drops of blind
from a horse or any other animal thus j
reudorcd immune injected into a hu?
man bciug suffering from diphtheria
are sufficient to arrest and cure the dis?
ease. Of course it is too soon as yet to
quote the statistics of the few hundtt ds
of cures which have been effected in
Berlin and London by this treatment,
which is to be fully discussed in all its
complicated scientific aspects at the
forthcoming international congress of
hygiene in September nt Budapest. But,
whatever tho ultimate result of its ap?
plication, it has at least one advantage
over all other forms of inoculation hith?
erto discovered?namely, that the matter
injected into the system of the patient
is free from poison and consequently
harmless.?New York Tribune.
A Unique 1'resrriptloii For tin- L.iv?-r.
A young clerk whose sedentary life
and lack of exercise have left him with a
sluggish liver and all the evil conse?
quences thereof visited a well known
physician recently ami was advised tri ,
regulato his diet to the utmost plain?
ness and to take horseback exercise daily.
The young man frankly told the doctor
that lie could not afford to keep or to j
hire a horse. The doctor asked him !
where ho was employed and was told
that he was a clerk in a certain corpora?
tion which is housed in an enormous
building on Broadway, and that his
office was <m tho tenth floor.
Quoth tho doctor: "That's just the
thing. Von don't need to hire a liorso.
Walk briskly down the 10 flights of
stairs three times a day, and it will do
your liver just as much gixid as if you
were jolted on horseback during an
hour's ride.''
The gentleman's friends will proba?
bly appreciate after tiny have read this
why lie persists in walking down stairs
at a good gait instead of taking the olo
vator. Tin- doctor added that no excor
eise was innre gently stimulating than
walking down stairs ami nothing more
severe than walking up stairs.?New

A Shower of Feathers.
The eminent surgeon, Sir Astley
Cooper) was fond of a practical joke.
()ii one occasion he ascended tin- church
tower of a village in Norfolk, taking
with him one of his mother's pillows,
ami flndiug tho wind blow directly to
tht! next town ho let off hondfuls of
feathers until he had emptied the pil?
low. Tho local papers reported this
"remarkable shower" of feathers and
offered various conjectures to account
for it, mid the account was copied into
other papers and was probably receiv?
ed as a perfectly natural occurrence.?
Notes ami Queries.
Right Doing.
Bight doing is a very simple thing,
but right tloing is not always an easy
thing. A straight lino is tho shortest
lino possible between any two given
points, yet as a practical matter it would
be easier to draw a dozen crooked lines
than one straight one in offhand draw?
ing. All of us can see the way tif right
living, hut who of us can walk in that
Way without wavering?

"You've heard of that fooling railed re?

Tho oflicoi' looked up and gnvo him a
brief survey, but didn't say anything.
"I have carried it in my bosom for 15
years now," whispered tho Btmiigor, "and
must get rid of it at any cost. Remorse! It
Is a wolf gnawing at tho vitals; it is a
Hume burning into the soul! I thought I
could curry the secret to my grove, but tho
torture is too great."
The sergeant raised Iiis eyebrows in ni
Inquiring way, but made no inquiries.
'?Halfan hour ago I was on the point of
leaving for Canada, but remorse held mo
in its chains. As I walked about a voice
whispered to me: 'Why endure this tor?
ment longer? They can only hang you at
tho worst. Vou had hotter bo dead than
suffering in this way. (Jo to tho police
station ami give yourself up and take your
punishment like a man.' That's what tho
voice said, and I mil here."
The sergeant ought to havo been star?
tled, but he didn't even look surprised.
"You know whero Dubuque is, of
course," resumed the stranger. "Lock mo
up and telegraph to the police of Dulmquo
that the bloody mystery has at last beeu
Tho sergeant looked nt him, or over his
head, and drummed on tho desk.
"Yes, I killed him. Ho had wronged
me. and I thirsted for bis blood. I was
reckless, and yet no one saw mo strike
him down. They found the body, but not
tho murderer. Even a reward of $1,000
could produce no clew. I shall plead guilty
and relate tho full particulars. I suppose
you'll - give me a good meal before locking
nu> up?"
The sergeant looked all around for his
blotting pud and Anally found it on tho
floor. He growled out something, hut it
was not for the murderer.
"I hope, you'll telegraph at once and
have it over with," said the stranger as ho
leaned forward and put on a look of en?
treaty. ''Suspenso is almost as bad as re?
morse. I feel 60 per cent bettor already,
but I want the whole thing off"
"Hey, Tom!" called the sergeant to the
doorman, who wasat work in the corridor.
" Yes, sir."
"Throw this old bum outdoors, and
throw him hard."
And the old hum was cast out Into the
shadowy night and given a boot to help
