S,, Gives his Opinion on This Most Terrible Disease. THE POINT OF VIEW. Dp. Frank Harvey .kit recently Wn, asked to give 1 1 1 opinion upon tulerctH losis in cattle. The following lot tor con tains mi answer to the questions pro pounded: There are a number of diseases that art t rantmiisKiblo from animal to man. and strange, to say, tliey are almost all of a malignant nature. Some such diseases are, glanders in the horse, rallies in the dog, ina.Iign.ant car buncle in eattle, 1 ovine variola (cow lux) (to which "ve are indebted for vac cination); and tuhercu lotus (consumption) in eattle. Now, during the lat, few years, it lias become more generally accepted that tu berculosis is t r.-insniissihle to man from eattle, consequently much has been writ ten in journals, and paper-, on Ihe sit In ject, and a great amount, of interest manifested by the puiblie, and in tseveral States a great deal of good, and possi bly some harm, has been accomplished by legislation. Jt will perhaps appear to some, who have followed the matter- closely, a re markable fact that there is, and has been, sui-h a diversity of opinion among writer, and investigators on. the subject. I. ike most questions of the kind it has fallen the viictim to exckemistts. On the one hand, we rend an article, written too by one whose opinion is Avorthy of respect, that there is hardly any tuberculosis in cattle ami the same writer ridicules the idea that the dis ease is transmissible from cattle to tin human lioing; on the other hand, anoth er writer, whose opinion is of as much weight as that of the former writer, telU n that a largo proportion of all cattle are tuberculous, and that we hu man Iteings exist, to a large extent on a diet of tuberee bacilli, served to us in milk, and poorly cooko-iT beef. Now ir is orobable that each writer is thor- oughlv sincere in his statements, am thev mav even have been the result el actual observation, but if such obsorva- tinrtR had been carried further, or ' in Veterinarian, anyone having suspicious cases among his eattle or anyone who knows of such cattle, reports them to him, and he makes an examination. If he finds the cattle are tuberculous In orders the animals destroyed, ami the State (sometimes) pays the owner a sum of money more or less, (generally less) than the value of the animals as rojwu-led by the owner. Now, to diagnose a case of Tubercu losis, especially if it be an incipient case, is not so easy as many may imagine. even thought the expert Aho attempts to do it has "Tuhereulin" to assist him. A simple physical examination, that is, such a one as can be made with the aid of the siecial senses of sight touch and bearing alone, is very unsatisfactory. Oat tie may be fat, and apiwar in good condition, and yet be victims of the dis ease. Or, Ihere may present no other symp tom than an inllamed udder, or a dis eased gland, bone, or joint. Then again all the symptoms of con stitutional disease may lo present, as for instance, cough, labored breathing, poor appetite, decreased supply of milk, staring, harsh coat, with general loss of condition ami probably dysentery, and diarrhoea. Fever is often present. Now alt hough the animal may exhibit all these systems, and although a eome tent Veterinarian would be satisfied with these symptoms, and those he would lind on a physical oxamination.yet the owner, who knows his loss will lie great, wishes quite naturally, for some more convincing evidence. The animal is then tested with "Tuln-rcivlin." In 1 SIM I Dr. Koch, of (Jormnny, an nounced to the world that he had dis covered a substance which would aid much in diagnosing tuliereulosis (con sumption) in the human subject, and also would cure lupus, itself a tuberculous disease, lie did not claim it as an ab solute cure for tulercu losis, although he has received the credit, or, rather ris credif of making such a statement. lie (A STORY.) BY W. H. CHRISTIAN. other fields, each would have magnified I did. however, discover an agent wliieh k a 1 proved to be of much value in, diag- Ji is statements perhaps, ami struck happy medium in his views, and expres sions on the subject. When I was en gaged in the active practice of Veterin ary Medicine I had ample opportunity of observing just how such diversity oi (pinion is likely' to occur. I investigated Worcester, and Somer set counties for tuberculosis in cattle for the State of Maryland, and although 1 made, the most careful examination that I could, with the means at my dis posal, I ditl not find a single ease ol tuberculosis among the Cattle, or at least not one that I could diagnose as such. But again, I was called to ex amine a large herd in Virginia . a few years ago, and found that the head of the herd, ami a large proportion of the cows were tuberculous. I think there is no doubt that the disease is much more prevalent in herds in which there h:rs been much in-and-in breeding, such breeding weakening the constitution of the cattle, and rendering them less able to resist the disease germs. 1001-, "scrubh" cattle are not as lia ble to have the disease -asthe more highly bred ones, Jwcause they are brought up to "rough it," and are ex pose I to the "hardships of life' from the beginning of their existence. As to the question of "heredity," I do not believe that calves, Are born with tuberculosis, but 1 do lx-lieve that they inherit a weakened constitution, and when liorn are in a condition to' hypo nutrition so that they are unable to re sist the inroads ujion their systems made by the tubercle bacilli, and as it is a case oi "the survival of the littest," they soon become victims of the disease. The most important, and at the same time, the most difficult question, to an swer, is. Is the, disease transmissible to the human being from cat 11, e if so, by what means V Bacteriologists have proved 'beyond a doubt that the meat of eattle that have died of tulcrculosis is certainly a hab itat for tulw-rcle, and also that a large quantity of milk sold in large cities, and elsewhere, also contained the bacil li in large q turn ti tics. The amount, of disease propagated in this manner, it is impossible to ascertain, but it is gener- ; ally believed by the medical profession ! to-day that tulerculosis can undoubtedly! be contracted by consuming these arti- j cles of food, esieeialy in -an uncooked -condition. j Thoroughly cooked loef. or boiled , milk is probably devoid of the cause of . danger. - j Of course, everyone who eats poorly cooked beef, or, unboiled milk which is known to i tuberculous, is not going 1o fall a victim to the disease, but any one, e.-iMs-ially one with , a weakened, debilitated constitution would fare bet ter on food which did not contain tuber cle bacilli. Now the question as to how to prevent the spread of Tuberculosis in cattle, and so keep tulerculous meat, -and milk from .being marketed for human food has engaged the attention of health-ofiicers and all those who have the welfare, and health of the general public at heart, for a long time, and the legislatures of sev eral States have enacted laws with a view to exterminating the disease, and preventing the sale of meat, or, milk, which is known to be tuberculous. A State veterinary surgeon who is competent to do such work attends to exterminating the disease, and a public health oftieor, who must also lie a bac teriologist, examines the meat, and milk, an., prevents the sale of tliat which is in his opinion unfit for food. In those States that have prov- nosing bovine tuiercuiois. even , though the lesions were small' and quite recent. .But still it is not infallible. It is not a remedy to.ln? injected un der the skin by every tryo, but should ! lie used by scientific men, ami its after ' effects carefully watchied, in, an ideal case of .Tuberculosis with th tempera ture about normal, the temperature will rise in from Jt to lo hours several de grees. 'and then in from 4 to ti hours vill drop to below normal. In a -rfectly healthy animal no reac tion whatever should take place. Eminent investigators have foiund though, that in perfectly healthy ani mals, (or at. least such as showed ''no sign of tulxTculous, or. other disease. (Hi post-mortem examination, shortly af ter), a well marked reaction took place, and then agatin animals which were con demned as tuberculous after physical examination, and were found so at post mortem examination, were not affected in any way by the "Tuberculin" test. Altogether 1 believe Tuberculin to be i very useful test in conjunction with physical examination, 'hut 1 do not Ive lieve it to be infallible, und in. my mind it is quite a question whether anyone's cow should be condemned as "tulwrcu lous" on the "Tuberculin Test"' alone. A thorough" physical examination of the lungs ami other parts should lie made first, and that by a thoroughly com petent man, and then the "Tuberculin" test applied and its value weighed with out prejudice.. in conclusion, in making an estimate as to the numlier of 'Tuberculous cattle in this State. 1 should be inclined to !;o conservative. 1 am not inclined to Ixdiove that al most, all the "herds in the State are tu berculous, on the other hand I believe that what there is of it should1 be stamped out, as a protection to the pub lie, and at the same time a protection to the owners of such stock. I do not le Ileve that more than six or seven per cent of all the cattle of this Stater are tuberculous, and I believe that to he rather an extravagant estimate. It may, however Ih true that certain herds may contain twenty or thirty jier cent of tuberculous cattle. 1 make this remarks generally not specifically. A FFBIHTABY SOXCJ.

They had not met for ten years or more indetd they had almost lost track of one another. Their ways had parted as class mates on graduation day at the Naval Acad emy. Drouillard had been forced out of the service on account of failing sight, had plunged into the Chicago wheat pit, and had made money. In fact, he was a mong the. rising and aggressive opera tors, his name having recently apiear ed prominently in connection with one of the most daring and successful "cor ners" that had heen made for some years in the numlier two lied Winter Berry. Frskine had kept to the navy and had advanced in his- profession, having re ceived special mention for gallantry at least once win m his loat went down almost in sight of Yokohama. They both had much with which to interest one another, Drouillard in his directness, being stimulating to Krskine, and Fr skine, in his polish, lieing entirely al leviating to Drouillard. These wore the two men, not either of them over thirty, who were strolling through the long pine grove lordering the St. Johns liiver, a few hours from Jacksonville. The lane through the grove was not so much frequented as not to be silent and restful by the river-like a. sheet of leaten -silver through the nar row strip on their right. The boards of the- pines, in Florida's winter-spring were gratefully yielding to the tread, and these two seemed to welcome the spot as if they were drawn close to the shelter ing bosom of Deep Quiet, where the noises and clatter and gabble of their outer-Avorld were as unheard as if they did not exist. If Drouillard had leen puzzled as to tlsiv1 almost, startling coincidence! that had brought him and his old chum to get her at this odd place, he was not. long to bo in doubt. True each had in a glimmering liurried way known through chance common-friends of the well-doing of the other hut that was all. From where they soate'tlieniseives on the rustic bench dn the sifted light "of the late afternoon, they could just catch a glimpse between the spaces of the thick foresters of the immense hostelry that had sprung up as if in a night at the touch of Fashion's craving. It was New York put down in the midst of soothing and picturesque and romantic solitude. . . "The best of us, old chap, will get an a '," said Erskine as they sat to gc titer, "when the right woman comes along. Then it's about time, don't you think? 1 have lieen trifling long enough to become serious. Whether 1 have or not, she made me serious, in some unaccountable way that seems to me as ridiculous as it is true.

That's the same confounded thing which- brought me here." Their voices both rang out over the great whisper of the great wood, in a laughter, that for once recalled days that would not come again. '"Tall? yes," continued Krskine, "hut that's not it exact ly-- it was probably what shall I call it? the reserved pow er, rather the reserved grace in her car riage and walk the fullness- of a force in her step and movement forwa.ro that was yet under tantalizing eonlrol to the tips of her feet there's much of the princess in the woman. "I am with you on the tallness," said Drouillard, "but why worry your mind with such painfully acute analyses of jv woman's -step and walk.

Her voice, too. conn s sustained and soft and steady without too much of that light-ray that, in some women's voices, dazzle often in luminous laughter without conquering. She is to me more for what -she does not express than for -what sh-e expresses a seemingly feelingless suggestion of feeling until I sometimes find myself taking the feeling on faith with an in clination nut to be unwilling that she should turn out to lie simply as she looks instead of the more thait she may suggest. "Your Chicago life," answered Krs kine, "has made you- satisfied, to le frank, with a more 'cruel' shall I say? -type than would satisfy the dreams that take shape during the idle miemienfs of -a navy life. Can I go hack to the Academy and tell you in confidence. Wyndham that you are a materialist in the pork-packing sense. "And you. m sentimentalist in the Bunt home sense." avtortod Drouillard.

The sky at its edges had passed through its afternoon gradations and variations of tint, it had come to tiie violet-breath and slate and deademsl silver and threat of gloom hues of the growing twilight. The two had risen from their seat and were al most up to the great hotel breaking out 1.4 u-e and there in ivo-ints of light. The terraces frctscood with palms and dark reds, with the murmur of piazza-voices niingh-d with the sound of the falling spray of fountains caused them to pause on the broad concrete walk leading np to the grand entrance. "That, we shall s4.-e!'' exclaimed Kr skine (in a subdued voice again. Listen I drouillard. Miss West land was at the piano at the dim end of the long drawing-room. "Do you hear, Drouillard?

Drouillard stood strangely silent. Had the lay not been so far spent, one might have detected a pallor which even th most acute crises of the wheat-pit had never put upon his face. "Let us go where you may see her un oliserved." suggested Krskine. Drouillard 'stood motionless. looking out toward the stretch of long, broad winding river. "A just remorse.

The two had passed through the electric splendor of the great onyx columned lobby and stooi looking d'o-w-n toward the figure in the subdued light. "And that is why you are here? asked Drouillard. with hardly concealed emo tion. "Truly." replied Krskine, "and do you make apology for your 'sentimentalist' round-up of me?

Modesty is a gnat irtue. but it i a complex one. There are many absolutely m.-dc-t won. en and many -uh are so iiniinxhst that one fc-ls as-haim-d to even belong to the same sex. I don't think it is ipiito right to hear women talk of their miseries, and the ma liner in w hieh they are U i-ig treated to the world at large, and yet women do it. I don't think it i tiie modest to gu-di i woman who wore nine pieces of un- ierwoar at one time. Starting with the over or.es friends in public.

With your heavy cloth skirt you need a stiff moreen petticoat, that it may be properly held out, but there is mi use burdening oneself with a Jot o-f - unnecessary underw ear to oblige t he stupid shopkeepers. A woman walks well and easily when she has not got on a lot of starchy underwear, and the line of beauty shows to much lw-ttcr ad rantage than when she is overruffled ind has strings and Iwdts cutting her. because she has no stays on, and is al together flurried and flat looking. The human form divine, e'pecially the female edition of it, does come in f-r an awful lot of discussion. The line of a woman's figure is talked ulioiit with the unction of Dumas, while any or every where1 -one is liable to face a p!( tare of Venus, and it is quite possible to stumble over Ikt in plaster on the side walk.
