Antique brasses for sale at the Ori

evening in the Auditorium of Academic
CAMBRIDGE, Ma-s., Dec. 2. It is the
intention of those Harvard graduates
who have taken the initiative in raising
the Charles William Eliot fund, in rec
ognition of his two score years of ser
vice to the college and university, to
conduct the subscription with as little
publicity as possible. They feel that
it is essentially a matter between the
graduates, and that in order to make
the subscription general it is better
not to publish information concerning
amounts subscribed. They desire that
contributions be voluntary and include
the largest possible number of gradu
ates. For this reason F. L. Iligginson, '(53,
who is the receiver of the subscriptions,
was unwilling to make any definite
statement today at his office, 50 State
street. He said that not all the cir
culars had yet been sent out to gradu
ates. Unless the plans are changed
there will be no statement of the fund
until next spring, when at Commence
ment it is likely that the committee
which has charge of raising the fund
will make a report to the graduates.
The detailed work of the fund commit
tee is being done through the office
of the alumni association.
The plan is to raise as large a fund as
the graduates care to give and to incst
the money, paying the income to Presi
dent and Mrs. Eliot during their lives.
Afterward the fund will be disposed
of in accordance with the wishes of
Tresident Eliot. The committee in
charge is as follows: Charles Francis
Adams. 'S3, of Boston; Alexander Agas
siz, '55. of Cambridge; Joseph H.
Choate, '52. of New York; T. Jefferson
Coolidge, 50, of Boston; F. A. Delano,
S5, of Chicago; Charles S. Fairchild.

Succeeds in Twenty Out of
Forty Cases in
CHICAGO. Dec. 2. A new treatment
for tuberculosis of the bones, discovered
by Dr. Emil Beck, of this city, has
had a trial of five weeks at the Home
for Crippled Children, and the results
are said to have been remarkable.
The .treatment, which promises to
bring relief to a large percentage of
sufferers from this form of the great
white plague, is simplicity itself and
consists for the most part of filling the
cavity caused by the disease with a
metallic substance, bismuth subnitrate,
combined with a basis of vaseline.
The discovery was incidental to tak
ing an X-ray photo of a little invalid.
The solution was applied to fi the out
line of a tubercular abscess and beiii'.'
left in the cavity, proved a healing
agent. Dr. Beck told his discovery to
Drs. John Ridlon and Wallace B!jn
chard, at the Home for Destitute Crip
pled Children and, in a five-weeks' trial,
twenty out of forty crippled children
were cured by the treatment.
The formula contains thirty grams of
bismuth subnitrate. combined with sixty
grains of vaseline. The paste so formed
is solid at the temperature of the body,
but if a fever is induced, will run o:;i
of the cavity. As the healing continues
the mixture is absorbed.
Medical men estimate that fully 5o
per cent of all crippled children are suf
fering from tubercular disorders.
