Puck's Magazine prints the fol
lowing: " The devoted advni ales of
ii ship subsidy are now Including
President Tuft among their number,
The president says in effect thai we
look out for our manufacturer, our
mine owners, and our farmers by
meana of a tariff, so why shouldn't
we do something for the ship ,,wners
by means of a government grant of
cash? Tims the government
enters practically Into a commercial
partnership, considerately relieving
the manufacturer and perhaps the
ship owner of all cause for worry or
fear of want. It might be called a
refined application of the socialist
idea of of socialism de luxe, The
socialists, unless we are misin
formed, would remove ns far as pos
sible the fear of want from the minds
of the poor. The Republican parly
however, knows a trick worth two
of that. It would dispel all fear of
want from the minds of the rich."

is ttie one who takes this hrolld view.
"Tbe discussion of preventive
measures in medicine leads the mind
naturally to the oomlderatlon of
small pox ami its prophylaxli, van
cination, About the middle of the
Eighteenth Century the opinion
gained ground in England that Inoc

" Looking up the history of vacci
nation we find that in parts of Eng
land a belief existed amongst the
Inhabitant! who had the care of cat
tle, that a disease of cows, which
was called cow-pox, when communi
cated to the milkers afforded them a
protection from small-pox. During
this period a majority of the people
were deeply pitted with the dread
disease. The Immunity enjoyed by
the milkmaids from unsightly sores
and scars attracted much attention
and comment. It was further no
ticed that dairy maids and farm
hands had sores on their hands
which arose from coming in i
with sores on the Uddi Ft "I
cows. The sufferers from thl
trouble, it was observed, etcai

" Later on, in 1774. Benjamin Jetty,
Ian Buglith farmer, became iti much

(ciliated his wife and children with
I cow-pox, thus performing vaccina

Into close touch and interest with
each of my hearers without regard
to ids vocation, for who of us has
not seen their sorrowful coliseiplelic
es. But here, my friend, the "curer"
as well as the "preventer" shines, a
brilliant field for treatment as well
as prophylaxis.
"Mere scrum, as it is generally
termed, is a power. Take diphtheria
with a mortalllty of HO to M per cent
before tbe introduction of antitoxin
and compart it with the preeent
mortalllty of about R per sent, ami
you readily see its virtue. The
treatment Ol diphtheria consists in
the early ami careful administration
of antitoxin. This is not a period tn
discuss its pros and cons, its effi
ciency is an established fact. Bar
ings says, with antitoxin used early,
the mortalllty will not ex d ,"i per
cent, and this statement can lie ver
ified by the reports of many compe
tent physicians throughout the old
and the new world. The physician
who thinks the ease is mild and
waits for severer symtoins, then giv
ing antitoxin, fails to grasp the sit
nut ion and tails short of bis duty to
bis patient, lint let us go further
with this antitoxin treatment. We
are taught, and experience has prov
en, the value of the immunizing
dose. Let us be practical und save
the lives of the children entrusted
to our care. Why should a young
life, or more, be sacriliced in every
Community each year? When the
indications point to an epidemic, or
when a case appears, I suggest Im

and its effects last for a period of
from three to six weeks, at which
time, if necessary, it could be re

according to t'aille of New York,
the administration of antitoxin is
safe and effective. Carrying this

in the case of small-pox.
"Scarlet Paver causes over li.lKHI
deaths, and appendicitis only about
6,080; Whoaping cough causes near
ly 10,1100 deaths each year. When
we stop to consider that theee "dis

vast Importance, and familiar to us
all, is the 'CI real White Plague,'
about which to much has heen writ

all the thousand post mortem exam

the number of actual instances of
transference of the haeilla of tuber
culosis from mother to child could

should he entirely disregarded."'
"I was much impressed recently
when visiting our own institution in
