"Th n I'll gradually lead up to the

THE ORIGIN OF TUMORS.
Several Theories About Cause, or the
Dreaded and Dang-eroaa Growth..
Heredity has been accused as the chief
factor in the origin of tumors. But the
evidence is very uncertain, for the disease
is so common that not many families are
without a history of tumor development
in some of their branches. Statistics give
a history of heredity in only 14 per cent, of
the superficial cancers, and in 27 per cent,
in some of the deeper forms. Similar fig
ures couid doubtless be obtained for many
of the common fatal diseases, such as
pneumonia and Bright's disease.
A previous injury is often thought to be
the cause of a tumor, and in some of the
rarer forms of cancer (sarcoma) there can
be no question that it is the cause in nu
merous cases. But when it is recalled how
many injuries are received in all parts of
the body without causing the development
of a tumor it will be perceived that there
is but little ground for the general appli
cation of the theory. There is more reason
for accepting the constant irritation of
some spot as the cause for the development
of a malignant growth, for many cancers
of the tongue and lips have been caused by
the irritation of a short tobacco pipe con
stantly smoked or the rough point of a de
One of the most fascinating of all the
theories which have been advanced is that
which supposes that al some time in the
development of the body a particle of tissue
intended for one part the skin, for exam
ple has gone astray and been buried some
where else, and that some accident has
awakened its cells to vigorous growth after
they have Iain dormant for many years. It
is almost impossible to make this theory
clear to one who has not studied biology,
but some idea of it can be formed by study
ing the development of the body of the
chick in the egg during the process of
The mass of living cells in the yolk of
the ejrg can be observed to spread out into
a flattened oval, consisting of two layers,
each destined to develop into certain or
gans. This flat mass then becomes folded
upon itself, sends out prolongations of its
cells in different directions, and gradually
assumes the shape of the body and organs
of the chick. To one who Las followed
these changes it seems not at all unlikely
that some minute portions of tissue might
be displaced and become the seeds from
which tumors might afterward take their
origin. But here again we are at a loss to
understand what accident finally starts
the seed to growing.
The recent discoveries as to the impor
tance of bacteria in the causation of disease
have Riven fresh impulse to the thought
that the tumors may be due to some micro
organism which finds its way into the sys
tem. By way of analogy, the tumors
which are found growing in some plants,
and especially the extraordinary varieties
of galls which form around the eggs of
insects when deposited in the tissues of
plants, also favor this theory, but as yet
no decisive facts have been collected, and
all is mere conjecture. For the present
we watch and wait, hoping for enlight
enment in the future, and turning the
knowledge which we have been able to
gain to the practical use of relieving the
suffering of the victims of this disease. B.

How Uoy Choir Si ng;ers Are Obtained.
Theboychoirof Trinity chapel is the best
known in the city, and this is the only
church in the United States which has a
daily choral service. The choir consists of
thirty members twelve men and eighteen
boys. Boy singers are usually obtained
from the public schools, but a church of
reputation never has any difficulty in
securing all the talent it needs. We have
boys continually applying to us for posi
tions in our choir.
When boys are obtained from the public
schools, the choir master goes to the prin
cipal of some school and asks for a number
of the best singers who would like to join
a church choir. He takes them to
the music room of the church, where he
tries their voices and makes his selection.
But Trinity chapel has a school of its own
from which it can obtain all the boys it
needs; in fact, the school was originally
founded for the purpose of supplying
Boys are taken from the ages of seven to
eleven and men not older than twenty-five.
During the day the boys occupy positions
in the offices of prominent bankers, brok
ers, commercial houses, etc., for at the
school referred to they receive a good gen
eral education in addition to being taught
music. Some of them after some years of
experience become choir masters and
many have joined opera companies where
they have met with much success. A head
boy singer was appointed organist in St.
Matthew's church after having served
seven years as a chorister. Interview in

Torturing the Poor Hog.
The pepsin sold in the drug stores is the
veritable product of an animal stomach,
and generally of the stomach of the hog.
One factory in New York has the oddest
method of preparing the article that ever
entered into the human mind. A number
of perfectly healthy hogs are fattened for
the market, and for thirty-six hours before
killing time are deprived of all food, not
even being allowed a drop of water. Then
the trough from which they are accus
tomed to eat is covered with strong wire
netting and the most appetizing slops and
bog delicacies, smoking hot, are poured
into the trough. s
The fumes ascend with grateful fra
grance to the porcine nostrils, the hogs all
run to the trough and stand over it, raveu
oub with hunger, squealing and fighting
with each other for a chance to get at the
slops. The iron netting prevents them
from tasting the food, and while they are
still thinking about the matter tbey are
killed, and their stomachs being taken out
are found perfectly full of gastric juice,
from which the pepsin is prepared. Now.
if it was not the hog's imagination that
made the gastric juice flow into his stom
ach in anticipation of feast, what was itf
tet. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Pot and Kettle.
Two old friends meet after a separation
of many years.
"Time flies," says one, "but after all you
are not so bald as I expected to find you."

perfectly absurd! Let's count 'em!" New

Suicide Among the Romans.
In the days when Romans believed it a
disgrace to be killed by a foe in battle sui

rather than live under the despotic reign
of Cresar, and when Tbemistocles was or

trymen, he took poison. Cincinnati Enquirer.
