"You see those small masses of dirt
upon this quarter," remarked Dr. Merger
to a Light reporter this morning. “This
coin has been tno long In circulation,
and all these blaek incrustations on the
surfarce of coins in the depressions be
tween tbe images, are nothing but
micro organisms algae and bacteria. Mr.
Roinecb, of Erlangen, baa lately s tidied
this subject, and bis investigations have
embraced tbe copper, silver and gold
ooms ot all the states in Europe. If you
take a needle and scrape off thia In
crusted formation, and placing it in dis
tilled water, and then place it under the
uiicroacope you will at onoe seo that
thio is true. Here are some specimens,
remaiked the doctor, and he invited the
seribe to look through bis microscope.
The appearance was quite startling, the
minute specks revealed under the strong
magnification fragments of textile fibres
and numerous grannies, which Dr. Mea
ger said were composed of starch, w tieat
and cellular algae. Tbe power was then
increased and numerous spots appeared
which were in a state of active motion,
and hero and there could be seen elonga
ted or rod shaped specitnens.whieh had a
peculiar oscillating motion. These, the
Doctor informed the Light reporter,
were what were called vibuo Spirillum
and globular forms of micr.-coccoid
bacteria. Resuming his con vernal I >n,
the Doctor satd that Mr. Renisch de
clared that bacilli are almost al wavs
found upon copper, gold and silver coins.
The algae or water plants are met with
only on old coins, new pieces containing
bacteria only. In addition tbeincrusta
tions upon coins are found to contain
spores of lungi like those found in
mould. This incrustation is not only
observable on silver coins, but the same
has been discovered on paper money, on
notes, which to the naked eye appear
to have a clean and unaltered
surface. Ihe vegetation on paper money.
according to the researches of Mr.
Renisch, consist of the following plants,
the names of w bich are long, but I do
not know how to popularise tbe scien
tific names so as to render them intelli
gible to tbe unscientific reader: First,
Micrococcus (various forms,) Bacterium
Termo Baccilus (various forms.) Lep
tothrix (species.) Sacciiaroniyee Ore
visae, Uhrococcua Monetarum.Pleiuocoe
cus Monetaruni. l hi« subject is a very
interesting and also serious one as it es
tablishes without doubt that filthy lucre
is a fertile agent for the spread of con
tagious diseases. It is highly probable
that even the musty old tome that tbe
bookworm delights in, has spread dis
ease in a virulent forte, but books ot
course do not circulate like money, and
it is of great importance to public hy
giene that ibis fact should be known.
Mr. Renisch deems it prudent that in
times of epidemic, such as small-pox,
etc., coma that have become coated by
too long a circulation should be cleansed
by being boiled in an alkaline solution.
The reporter left the Doctor and the
subject jubilant, feeling that all newspa
per men were involuntary philanthro
pists from the fact of it being impossible
for them to spread or catch any con
tagious diseases, the idea of their re
ceiving or pa\ing away money being
ludricrous. This is indeed another in
stsnes of the apothegm that “money is
tbe root of all evil."
Chicago, January 9.—The blizzard
raging at present throughout Illinois,
lowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Dakota and
Minnesota, is declared to be of wider
extent and more fierce in character than
any known before in years. All Western
trains are behind time. Many have been
•■owed in and abandoned, and very lit
tle can be learned concerning them, or
of the eflseta of the storm, owing to tbs
blowing down of telegraph wires and
poles and ths stoppage of telegraphic
•fmmuniMtion. Tbs temperature in
Dakotn is said to bs from 20 to 40 de
grees below zero, with a wild blizzard
blowing. A telegra n from Fargo says
tbe thermometer registered 27 degrees
below at noon yesterday. It was de
scribed as the roughest experience tbst
the city has yet bad in the way of bois
terous weather. Bismarck reports a
high wind, with tbe thermometer 30 lie
low. A high wind is prevailing at Sioux
City, and tbe temperature is 20 degrees
below zero. Omaha registers 20ueg-ees
below. Telegraphic communication
with Omaha baa been cut off nearly all
day. A telegram from Des Moines, la.,
save the cold wave continues there with
high wind and drifting enow. Through
traine went of tbeie are blocked, and
branch roads are eaowed nud,r Cbi
esgn and Burlington traine are etuck
feet In tbe enow about 15 miles south of
Des Moines. The Wabash road south
from that city is badly drifted. The
Fort Dodge and tbe Narrow-Guage
roads have been abandoned. A snow
storm prevailed throughout Illinois all
day, but the bad weather has not been
very aevere so far. It is growing colder
to-night, with all tbe roads to Omaha
reported practically blockaded in cen
tral lowa.
Washington, January 9.—Senator
Van Wyck, Representative Dorsey, of
Nebraska, Judge <’arr, of Wyoming, and
Major Lie welly, lately agent for the
Mescalero Indians, called upon the
President to-day in reference to his re
ported purpose to remove General Crook
from tbe command of troops operating
against the Apaches. They represented
that much anxiety bad been created in
the west by tbe report, where General
Crook waa held in high appreciation.
The President spoke admirably of Gen
eral Crook, and assured the visitors that
no serious purpose of removing him
bad beea entertained. He said General
Crook should have all bo *■> ted, tbe
whole army if neceMary, to quell the
dleturbauces, protect tbe settlers and
punish the savages. He (tbe Pnsidenl)
waa determined that these objects should
bo accomplished. Tbe gentlemen tbea
called upon General Sheridan in refer
enoo to tne same subject, and were re
ceived by him as by tbe President and
told that General Crook's removal was
riot contemplated.

The County Judge's Views on the Road
I he C ounty Judge submitted the fol
lowing communication to tbe County
Coi»mUsion<ra this morning at the
opening of Ihe January Hesston:
To the lion. C ounty Commlm»hmer* Court:
Gentlemen—l desire to call your at
tention to the condition of several coun
ty roads, and particularly to the Somer
set. B ibcock, .>egiiu> and < slebra road*.
All of said roads, I am informed, have
been obstructed by land owners, by
fencing, and complaint* have been mado
almost daily of such obstruction*, in
some case-, the legallv laid out roads
have ti eu absolutely blocked by fencing
across them; loot era changed by land
owners without authority. Travel has
been greatly o struated to the manifest
injury ot our citizens. In most of these
cases the great dilllculty baa been tbe
large pastures, partly within tbe cor
porate limits of the city of San Antonio.
1 have instructed all road overseers to
remove all obstructions on any road
when notified of such obstructions,
but hid no authority to thus act
when within the city limits, but
referred the complaining parties
to the city authorities Tbe Babcock
road lias been obstructed within the city
limits (north,) Mayor Callaghan having
been Informed, lias taken steps, I am in
formed, to open the same The Seguin
road feast) having been changed in ISM,
no objection had heretofore been made,
and said road as changed used by the
public to within a few weeks, when Mr.
James blocked said road entirely by
fencing. 1 instructed ihe road over
seei to remove obstructions, but as it is
claimed by Mr. James that thia fence is
within the city limits. I had no author
ity lo order its removal, no streets hav
ing been laid out by tiie city as yet to
connect with said road. Tiie Somerset
road, an old and long establi-hed road,
was by a lateorder of the court changed.
After such change Messrs With, re,
Terrell and others erected fem es over
the o<l road, enclosing laige bodies of
land in and out of the city liuiiis. Thia
change has caused great disaaliataction
with a large pari ot our citizens using
Slid road and a uce aaid change
bav ■ insisle'l <m traveling tbs
old road, claiming that said change was
not legal, it being longer and over
swampy lands. The Calebra road has
been laid out at great expense to the
county, but from reports received does
not give satisfaction. 1 most respect
fully suggest that your honorable body
make a personal inspection of the aaid
road and devise ways and means to give
We must have reads, snd private !•-
terest must give way to public neces
sity. It is of vital importance to eur
citizens that our public roads be free
and unobstructed; that such roads st
may be necessary be opened to give easy
and direct communication with the
county site. I also suggest that a com
mittee be appointed to confer with tbe
city authorities in reference to the open
ing of such street as may be found nec
essary to connect with county roada.
These road questions are the meet
important question coming before
you, and at the same lime
the most troublesome and thankless
All want good roads, provided
they run over their neigbb r’a land, but
lay any one road over their own land,
then it is a great outrage and sbame.
You cannot please everybody, but do
wliat is to tbe benefit of tbe people at
large, even if private interest must suf
fer. Each Commissioner has tbe ap
pointment of road overseers of his pre
cinct. and by giving his personal attend
ance to the roads therein, much go d
can be eflecteil and complaints reme
died. C. L. WUBZBACH.
County Judge.
In pursuance ot tbe above, the County
Commissioners decided to confer with
the Mayor and City Council at tbe next
meeting of that body.
