. TUBERCULOSIS CURE.
Medical Discovery Which May Rea
der Man Immune.
Professor Leonard IVar.son, dean of
the veterinary department of the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, announced
that a sure mean had been found to
prevent tuberculosis in cattle. The
belief was expressed that the same
means would be found almost as cer
tain in the case of human beings and
that the human family could be made
Immune from the jjreat white plague.
Ir. Fearson is also assistant director
of the Henry Phipps Institute of Study.
The cure lie adopts involves vaccina
tion. Many successful tests have al
ready been made, it is said.
The chain of experiments, started
with the living tubercle in man, was
extended to cattle, is now being ap
plied to monkeys and is about to be
carried hnmk. to the starting point,
man. It is a work asserted to be more
freighted wth promise 'of life, health
and happiness to the human race than
any discovery of recent years.
Associated with Dr. Pearson in the
experiments is Dr. S. M. Tiililaml. Dr.
Pearson ays concerning bis latest ex
periments: "The results of the vaccination of
monkeys are most encouraging. They
are n link in the chain of experiments
which have the immunization of man
from tuberculosis as their object. What
tlie result or vaccination" of cattle is
Ave know absolutely. We have proved
by vaccination that we can have per
feet immunization where the cattle are
not diseased, and we have provwd the
arrest of tulerculosis iu cattle when
the disease has been contracted.
"We have reason to believe that tin
same result will be achieved through
tne vaccination or tuberculous Hum-
keys. Whiit the result will be when
we come to apply She treatment to man
I will not venture to predict."

Dramatic Life Stories Told of

OIGAEETTE PIEND EARLY IN LITE
KILLS THE GERMS
o OF SCROFULA
The laws of nature and heredity are fixed and invariable. Parents who
are related by the ties of blood, or who have a consumptive tendency, or
family blood taint, are sure to transmit it to their children in the form of
Scrofula. Swollen glands, brittle bones, weak eyes, hip disease, pale, waxy
complexions, emaciated bodies, running sores and ulcers, and general wak
constitutions are the principal ways in which the disease is manifested.
Those who have inherited this blighting trouble may succeed in holding it
in check during young, vigorous life: but after a spell of sickness, or when
the system has begun to weaken and lose its natural vitality, the ravages of
the disease will become manifest and sometimes run into Consumption.
S. S. S. goes down into the circulation and forces out the scrofulous deposits,
kills the germs and completely cures the disease. It changes the quality of
the blood by removing all impurities and poisons and supplying this vital
fluid with rich, health-sustaining qualities. S. S. S. is a purely vegetable
medicine and is especially adapted to S3'stems which have been weakened
and poorly nourished by scrofulous blood. Literature on Scrofula and med
ical advice free.

The first thiug 'of note that Harry
Kendall Thaw of Pittsburg, who re
cently shot and killed Stanford White,
the famous architect, on the roof of
the Madisou Square Garden at New
York, ever did was to begin smoking
cigarettes when he was a lad iu knlck
erbockers, says the New York World,
I lis mother tried to stop him, but
could not. When he went to Wooster
university. In Ohio, in 1SS7, his addic
tion to this form of smoking was so
great that the ojher boys nickuaiued
mm ' tne cigarette neuu. narry was
lazy and indifferent to any form of
study. Full of the assurance that his
father's wealth and his mother's rich
gifts to the university protected him.
he devoted much of his time to play
lug pranks that were astounding lu
their freaklshuess, but never vicious
The ouly form of exercise for which
he -cared was lawn tenuis, and this he
pursued with great application.
President Scovel of the university
sent for the boy one day and sadly
urged him to go to work.
"It is your mother's wish," he added.
"Tell me what branches of study you
Intend to follow."
"Oh, I've chosen all right, all right,"
said the heir to millions, and he pulled
out a gold cigarette case and opened it.
"And what might your choice be.
pray?" asked the Rev. Mr. Scovel.
"r'enmanship and lawn tennis," said
the vouth as he struck a match and
blew rings of smoke into the face of
the university president.
It was only a week after this that
young Thaw decided to lay aside his
chosen branches, penmanship and lawn
tennis, for the time. lie lied to Eu
rope, wiring back that he had gone
over to get some cigarettes. He re
turned, in a mouth and was not chided
or sent from school. Harry brought
back to the university several trunks
full of cigarettes, which he distributed
lavishly among his friends.
The fledgeling millionaire became not
ed for his. attentions to girls, especially
to girls in theatrical troupes, and occa
sionally he got into scrapes on account
of them. Once he got into a fist fight
over a girl. He was always lounging
about the Wooster theater or the hotel
in which the show girls stayed. On
one occasion he persuaded all the girls
in a cornie opera company to wear
garters and bows of the college colors
tlurinsr the performance. The act made
a hit with the students.
Young Thaw was sent to Princeton
in 1S.)4, but lie did not take life seri
ously enough and he never was grad
uated. He made many friends, who
still refer to him pityingly as a good
fellow. When he left college in the early
nineties he returned to Pittsburg and
devoted himself still more seriously to
having a good time.
Long before this, of course, lie had
learned to drink. Oneight he walked
through a big plate glass window in
the Hotel Imperial In New York. He
paid well for the window, of course.
The incident was considered a great
bit of humor. No important arteries
were cut, and the young man was con
sldered to have had a very good time
His wildest escapades while drinking
hapflcned in Pittsburg. He would visit
the local Tenderloin with a party of
friends, close up the house and fairly
wallow in champagne. Ills excesses
and abuses Included all manner of vi-
ciousness. He would remain in a house
for days at a time, and wheu he had
tired of it, would pive the proprietress
a check for the amount of 'his bill. It
was these checks constantly coming
into his mother's hands which so wor
ried her. She could. not help but know
how the money had been spent.
Young Thaw often came to New
York on visits to attend to the Impor
tant business of having a good time,
but he never forced his way Into print
imtll he arrived in Paris in' May, P.MX),
and gave a dinner that cost $50,000 In
honor of Liane de Pougy, Nellie Neu
stretter, Anna Robinson, La Belle Ote
ro, Cleo de Merode and other noted
beauties. The dinner was served in a
restaurant in the Champs Elysee, the
most expensive in Europe, kept by a
man who was once chef to the czar.
All that Thaw Insisted upon was that
the dishes and the wines should be the
costliest possible. In tills project he
had the hearty co-operation of the pro
prietor. The souvenirs were trinkets
of diamonds, pearls and sapphire.
This dinner gave young Thaw a fine
status In the world of people who
spend all their energy in having a good
time. He returned to nttsburg pres
ently and further distinguished himself
by losing $40,000 one night in a game
of poker. At 7 o'clock next morning
he wrote checks for .all the other play
ers In the game. The cashier of the
bank refused at first to honor the
checks, having heard ttyat they were
for poker losses, but Harry Thaw gave
him an angry lecture about "honor,"
and the checks were paid.
Thaw's famous $50,000 feast in Paris
was duplicated In New York with
more beautiful women and a greater
disregard for the. conventionalities. It
was followed by a feast nt Sfcrry.s at
which Thaw was the host and" Miss
Nesbit, .now Mr. Thaw's wife, the
The exact cost of that entertainment
never has been revealed, but It la
known that the order was given to
spare no expense either iu the prepara
tion of the menu, tne decorations or
the favors. Miss Nesbit selected the
guests, and she took care to bring to
gether beauties to outshine the Pari
ian collection "and its replica In the
Tenderloin. She called the girls to
gether and gave them full Instructions
as to costume and makeup. There were
only six men in the party besides Har
ry Thaw. The young women were the
pick of the stage beauties then in town.
After coffee had been served there
was a vaudeville performance, in which
nu oriental dancer was a startling and
uuexjiected feature. Black face come
dians and lilliputiau dancers wound up
the entertainment. In the big bouquet
of beauty Evelyn Nesbit was the cen
tral flower. Thaw was so enraptured
that he had eyes for no other woman
and ears for no other voice. The din
ner was the talk of the town for a
week and the host the most talked of
mau in New York.
Back to Paris went young Thaw and
gained further distinction in his life
work. In March, 11)01, the Comtesse
Louise de Mortane, a charming widow,
announced in Paris that she was hav
ing a submarine yacht built. La Mys
tere, in which she would always live.
Six mouths earlier she had tried to kill
herself because Harry Thaw would not
marry her. A year later the young
man entertained Prince Komatsu, the
mikado's brother, with ten days of ex
traordinary revelling at the Moulin
Rouge, a private exhibition of the
Grand Opera ballet, a tea party at the
Cafe Madrid, with Llane de Pougy and
all the other great beauties, etc.
From Port Huron, Mich., where Har
ry Thaw's brotner, josian copiey
Thaw, two years ago married Miss
Mary Harrington Thompson, with Har
ry as best man at the wedding, came
a story recently ueserioing one oi
Thaw's typical escapades which now
are brought forward by his friends as
proof of insanity.
With a party of Pittsburg friends,
Harry Thaw was stopping at the Har
rington hotel. The young men from
nttsburg bad a lively time from the
start, but the climax came one evening
wheu Harry Thaw tonight out the Ho
tel Harrington bar for $;.j0.
The cash register was thrown out,
and the bartenders and attendants
were instructed to fill all orders, but to
accept no money for the drinks they
served. All callers -were welcomed.
The patrons were mystified nt first
wheu their money was refused, but got
used to it very sooh, and nearly all
the masculine population of Port Hu
ron called at the bar that night.
THE LOBSTER'S SHELL.
Hanging clothes in the sunshine has a renovating, sweetening, whitening tendency, but their
color and condition after washing depend upon the soap used. Yellow soap, heavily charged with
destroying chemicals and ruinous alkali, leaves them more or less discolored and unsightly. But
when Maple City Self-Washing Soap is used, the clothes are sure to be as pure and clean and
white as falling snow. It has the effect of bleaching white goods in a most wonderful way.

along with the harvest's progress from
south to north. They get from $1.

$2 and board. They are an addition to
