Dr. Tanner, tlio faster, lins become a vegetarian And allied himself to the sect known ns Faithists.
After nbout a yenr of this ho writes
ns follows: Theso people ure now
organized on u fraternal basis, nre
living on two meats per diem, nnd
as you see by circular, ure carefully
abstaining, not only from the gross-
scr animal foods like flesh and tish,
but all animal products. I have
been identified with this community
over ono year, joining them at Pearl
Elver, Rockland county, N. Y.,
June 8, 1881, Previous to that'
time, since my fast in Now York
1880, I ate sparingly of animal
food of nil kinds but swine's flesh;
since then have rigorously excluded
all animal products from my dietary
list; and from tho unrelenting logic
of facts that have come undor my
observation since my residence in
tho community of Faithists, I am
confident that tho time is near at
hand when it cm be as conclusively
shown that "physical und mental
vigor can bo maintained for any
length of time upun a diet whicli
rigorously excludes animal products
of all kinds," as that horses, mules,
cattle, etc., can retain their normal
conditions of health and strcngtti
by strictly graminivorous habits.
Count Ferdinand de Lesseps lias
liad in his employment thousands
of Italians, Turks and Frenchmen,
working on the Suez Canal, and bus
therefore had abundant opportunities to test the relative nutritive
properties of vegetable and animal
foods. He says that the "advantngo
of cereals over meat is five to one,"
and from observations and experiments made on myself and others
T nm disposed*- to think that the
statement rests on some firmer basis
than mere assumption. You will
see by inclosed newspapor slip tliat
Count de Lesseps esteems cotton-
bcoJ   oil   vci-y 1.»k1i1j- n« n snlmHt.lltfi'
for pork, lard, butter, etc. The
Faithists, like the Frenchmen al
luded to, uso cotton-seed oil in their
salad, soup, broad, cake, pie-crust,
etc.; in short, it is thc substitute
for pork, lard or butter for till culinary purposes; and from our experience: with tho article we wonder
with Count do Lessops why the
"Southern States hnve for years
been throwing away beautiful cotton-seed oil and buying unhealthy
pork and lard in its place."

world, New Westminster will, boyond a doubt, occupy the same
position on tbo mainland, or in fact
to British Columbia, that Portland
does to the valley of the Willamette and the state of Oregon. Commerce seeks natural channels, and
creates large trade centres at points

tapped in all directions. — Blaine

Women Voters In Wyoming.
Gov. Wnrron of Wyoming Territory,
in a letter addrcBBed to a member of
tliu Legislature of Miissnoliuai-tts, gives
tho following testimony in wgnrd to
the practical working of woman's sufl-
rage iu that territory:       •' .
"I have beeu a citizen of that territory ever since its organization, and
was a resident there before its organization, whilo it was yot a part of Dakota, and from my experience and observation I nm compelled to sny, in
justico to the women of Wyoming, that
woman suffrage has not 'lowered the
grade of public ufliciats' iu thnt territory. On tho contrary, our women
consider much mure carefully than our
men thc character of the candidates,
and both political parties have found
themselves obliged to nomirinto their
beat men ia ordur to obtain the support of the women. As a business
tnnu, ns a city, county nud territorial
officer, nnd now, ns Governor of Wyoming Territory, I lmvo seen much uf
tlio workings of woman suffrage, but I
lmvo yet to hear of thc lirst case of
domestic discord growing out of it.
Our women uenrly nil vote, and since,
iu Wyoming, as elsewhere, the majority of women nro good and not bnd,
the result is gnud nml not evil. While
I had no hand in passing the act which
gnve to womon this privilege, I must
neknowledge its success now nfter fifteen yenrs trial, nnd I will add thut no
attempt tn ruponl the law has boon
made for ten yenrs, and nono, I believe, is contemplated; for the practical workings of woman suffrage commend it more nnd more to favor among
meu and womon as they understand it
better and know more of its fruits. It
has been productive of much good in
our territory. If tho women nf Massachusetts arc as intelligent and public-
spirited as those of Wyoming (and I
have no reason to doubt they are),
their political intluetico wilt he for
good goveruiueut and public order.
Certainly this is thc ense iu Wyoming."
This, in the facts recited, is certainly
a very strong statement in favor of
woman suffrage. The results of the
experiment in Wyoming Terrilory
have uot been harmful to eithor sex,
but rather beneficial to society" and
the peoplo there, according to Gov.
Wnrn-n, have uo idua of changing their
'nw oil this subject.—Initeptintvnt:,

From recent dispatches it is ascertained that Van Horno, president of the Canadian Pacific 11. K.,
has expressed it the intention of the
abovo railway to commence surveying the route for a brnncli from the
main line of the 0. P. R. to New
Westminstor. The work of survey, on this branch will undoubtedly
bo commenced before thu 1st of
September, nnd the process of construction, it is said, will immediately follow the locating engineer*}.
Tho New WestminsteriteH have
great cause to rejoice over their
brilliant outlook for unprecedented
prosperfty, wliich will iu the near
future unquestionably dawn upon
them, Some of the prominent business men and capitalists of the
nbove city are deeply interested in
tho consummation of the Fraser
River Valley Kailway, whioh will
havo an initial poiut at New Westminster and a point of destination
at Semiahmoo bay. * * * In the
premise we cannot help commending the business men of New Westminster for their tact, shrewdness,
foresightcducss and correct business
inenvures. Thoy hnvo not con-
damned the C, P. It. Co.'s course in
not selecting their city as the terminus of that road; rather, on thd
contrary, they give this road u
bonus for building thom n branch
rond front the main line. This
offer tho C, P. II. accepted, and
will shortly commoner tbo survoy,
location and construction of this
branch. Not satisfied with this,
New Westminster business men
have determined .tpon connection
with tho American system of railway at the boundary lino on Seminhmoo buy, which will, when consummated, make the above city
virtually tho terminus of two great
transcontinental systems of railway.
Now Westminster is eligibly situated for a great commercial mart—
being located iu tho midst of one
of the finest agricultural districts
of the mainland of British Columbia; it is afforded excellent navigation both with the interior and the
ocean by the Fraser Kiver; it will
be given outlet to the eastern markets through its branch which will
connect it with tho C, P. It.; it will
have connections with Pugot Sound
and in fact tho east with the completion of the Frasor River Valley
Kailway. Ry securing these means

Raising the Dead,
In the current number of tho Accle-
piad Dr. Richardson recounts his "Ro*
searches in Resuscitation," nnd Bug-
gouts somo serious reflections on the
questions of what is death ? When does
death occur? May life bo restored
after actual death ?
By combining "artificial circulation"
witli artilicial respiration, a dog was
restored to life one hour aud firu minutes after being killed by au overdose
of chloroform, tho heart being perfectly
atill, nnd passing into rigidity, Animals that Imve been killed by suffocation, the heart and other viscera displayed by partial dissection, were so
far brought into n state of musculnr
irritability that the experiment wns
stopped from motives of humanity,
i.e., lest the mutilated body should return to conscious sentient life.
Frogs poisoned by nitrate of ainyl
woro restored aftor nine days of apparent death; iu one case after signs of
putrefactive change had commenced.
Various methods of effecting these
resuscitations nru described; the most
original and utl'ectivo being that of
pumping wnrm defibrinated and oxygenized blood into an artery iu euch u
manner that the stroke of the pump
shall correspond with the natural
pulsntiuns of the artery, and to the
stroke of the heart, which is thus
awakened to its customary work.
The action of peroxide of hydrogen
iu reanimating the blood and restoring
animal heat in a renlly dead body ia
quite startling.
Tliu agent upon which Dr. Richard-
aon most relies iu protracting tho poriod that may elapse between apparent
death aud restoration of lifo, is one
that by no menus suggests itself to the
uninitiated, vm., "extreme cold." Thia
reliance is based on the fact that it
suspends tlio aggregation of the blood
corpuscles iu the mimfto vessels; the
contraction of tho capillaries: the occurrence of rigor mortis', putrefactive
change iu tho blood; and, moro especially, thnt it retards or completely
prevents the coagulation of the blood.
Whnt I have read in this paper, and
have heard in conversation with ita
author, nppuars to me to justify the
conclusion that a drowned or suffocated
man is not hopelessly dead so lung aa
tho bodily organs remain uninjured by
violence or disease, nnd tho blood remains sufficiently liquid to be set in
motion artificially, and supplied with a
littlo. oxygen to start tho chemical
movement of lifo.
An ingenious Now York lady bns
invented a way to travel with much
money without anxiety. She had a
travelling-dress trimmed elaborately
with buttons. The cheaper ones contained gold pieces neatly laid between
the wooden molds and covered with
cloth in tho usual fashion. Tlio costlier buttons wero stutlod with United
States notes. As fust as she required
cash alio clipped off a button.

Some American papers nre lie-
coming suspicious of tho growing
friendship which has lately been
manifesting itself between Great
Britain and Mexico. Mexico, it is
said, wants to negotiate n big loan
in London, aiul tliere are certain
wcnltliy Englishmen who would like
to get control of the Mexican railway system. The government
seems quite willing to make large
concessions to tliese Englishmen if
the success of the public loan is
assured. But Americans ure afraid
that if Englishmen lend money to
Mexico, and Mexico becomes a defaulter, Britain mny some day occu-
py that country with an armed
forco such us hns taken possession
of Egypt. This is what alarms
(them.
The Seattle Posl says: "The
alarm shown by tho Uritish people
at the condition of their navy is
strangely in contrast with the indifference shown by the American
people, who have no navy at all.
There is no doubt that the navy of
England is easily a match for thnt
of any other nation, yet the mere
suggestion by a few fault linders
that it is not quite so strong as it
ought to be, brings a delegation of
anxious inquirers into the Admiralty Ollice, aud Lord George Hamilton is compelled to assure them
that he will order an immediate
investigation, und if the navy is not
just as strong as it should be, he
will make it so. On this side of
the Atlantic, we are more complacent. We have no navy to worry
about, und accordingly we do not
worry. The United States is a
great, overgrown China, sleeping in
fancied security, but in reality ready
to fall an easy victim to nny enemy
that may choose to come."
The Branch Line.
Ottawa, July 22.~-Base yonr calculations upon my lirst telegram. Cambic
will mnke the aurvey. I leave to-day
for British Columbia.   J. A. H. Hosier.
This telegram, which was received
by the mayor lust Wednesday, contains the latest information we
have respecting the, branch railway.
Upon receipt of it the mayor tele-
m'-ApUwl to Mr. Gambia lUtUuig if
he had received any instructions
about making the survey, to -which
Mr. Camliie replied in the negative.
Thc "lirst telegram" referred to in
the above dispatch must mean the
ono in which it was proposed to
offer tho syndicate the whole $75,-
000 bonus on completion of the
branch, if completed by tbe lirst of
January next. Wo conclude,
therefore, that thc syndicate must
havo accepted that proposition, uud
that we may expect to see this city
connected by railway with the C.
P. R. by the first of the year. This
is quite as satisfactory a prospect
as most of us could have reasonably looked for. It is during the
short poriod of severe winter weather that we Iind our position of
isolation from the railway most
embarrassing. That period does
not come usually until thc end of
January or the beginning of February, and before it arrives next
winter we shall have supplied the
missing link in the iron chain thnt
connects us with the world beyond.
Tt is expected that Mr, Cnmbie
will be here in the course of a few
days. His instructions will doubtless be sent by mail, as they will
necessarily be of considerable length.
Mr. Homer ought to bo hero before
the end of next week, and will no
doubt be able to furnish some additional particulars respecting the
understanding reached with Mr.
Van Horne.
Agricultural Exhibition.
On the 1st and '2nd of October
the annual' exhibition of the British Columbia Agricultural Association will bu held on the exhibition
grounds in this city. The pamphlets containing prize lists and other
information were issued early this
month, and all persons throughout
the country havo had ample notice
of the coming event. We hope
preparatiprts will not be neglected.
In some respects this may bo regarded us ouo of the most important exhibitions ever held by the
society. The year of confederation
will always be recorded as a notable
epoch in. the history of British Columbia, and so will the year in
which tho Canadian Pacific Railway was completed. It is quite
within tlie region of probability
that the through road may be
opened before the exhibition, and
that it may be made tho occasion
of a special excursion from the
eaat. People beyond tho mountains have of late years heard a
great many strange things about
this provinco, nnd are being consumed with a desiro to know what
it really possesses iu the way of resources and attractions. Whether
the road is fully opened or not,
thorofore, it is almost certain that
an unusual number of strangers
from the east will attend tho coming exhibition, and their ideas of
our provincial ■agricultural resources may be largely shaped by what
they see there. It is of very great
importance that the exhibits next
October be the best the country can
produce. Let our farmers, our
lumbermen, our fishers, our miners,
our manufacturers, and all who are
engaged iu developing the resources
of tlio country, do their utmost to
make such a show as may place
this province whore it ought to be
in public estimation—in the front
mirk of the provinces of the Dominion,
Ulysses 8. liraiil.
On the 4th of May, 186*1, Gen.
Grant, having lieen appointed to
the generalship of tho United
States army, began his celebrated
Virginia campaign against the confederate rebels. The nrmy of the
Potomac at this time numbered
about 140,000 men, and tho confederate army (under (.Jen. Lee)
numbered 00,000. The first battlo
under Gen. Grant ns commander-
in-chief took place on the Sth and
Oth of May, 1864, and resulted in
a loss of 20,000 federal and 10,000
confederate troops. With varying
success and considerable slaughter
Grant pushed forward until Lee's
whole army was taken (Oth April,
186D), and the national forces became complete victors. Jeff. Davis
was captured on the llth-of May,
1S65. Grant's campaign, therefore,
covered a period of nearly a year.
He accepted the chief command at
a time when the southern cause was
certainly not very hopeful; and it
may be said to have been only a
question of lime when the confederacy would be forced into submission. The resources of the north
were immensely superior to those
of the south, and the blockade of
southern ports prevented supplies
coming in from foreign countries.
But thc confederacy was united and
determined, and it had brave soldiers led by exceptionally bravo
and able commanders, and Grant
bad before him a tusk which required "all the courage and firmness
thnt so Btviktngly marked his clmr-
actof. His conduct of the campaign lias beeu often and severely
criticised. It lias been asserted by
high authority that Ins victories
were moro the result of favorable
circumstances and the energy and
judgment of his assistants thau his
owu good generalship, This is a
point wliich could not easily he determined; and whatever theories
may be advanced, we have the fact
that under Gen. Grant the campaign
was speedily and successfully brought
to a close. There is, perhaps, no
American of the century more
widely known than Gen. Grnnt.
His nation, in gratitude for his military achievements on its behalf,
twice elected him to the presidency,
nnd bestowed upon him many honors. But honors and applause and
victory are powerless against the
foe which finally conquers all men.
Last Wednesday night Gen. Grant
surrendered unconditionally, and a
nation now mourns the loss of a
hero. The disense which carried
ofl this remarkable man is cancer
in the tongue. Its ravages wero
extremely painful, and death muy
have been a happy release. The
end of Grant's life wns devoted to
the completion of a history of the
campaign in which he took so prominent a part, and the appearance of
this posthumous work will be looked
for with more than nntional interest. Gen. ({rant possessed such a
character of honesty aud firmness
that his history will doubtless be
accepted ns a correct representation
of facts, and may make public some
things not now generally known.
Canada unites with the great republic in earnest regrets at tbe
death nf (!en. Grant, whose name
will be known to posterity associated with that of Lincoln, whose
memory can never die.

Thb Sock-eyes. -Tho river is literally alive with tliese delicious salmon.
Yesterday 5 bunts took 2500. In several cases boats havo been taken off
because the fish could not be handled.
In a few hours a boat can take as many
as it will carry. The canneries can

muoh to bo regrotted that the low price
of canned salmon leaves such a very
small margin for profit on the business.
Olfl'ROH Notes.—From the Church-
man's Gazette we learn that Rov. T. H.
Gilbert has resigned his mission at
Chilliwhack, and leaves at the ond of
September. Rev. Chas, Blunchard
hns obtained a year's leave of absence,
and left for England on tho 15th.
Rev. G. Ditcham will also go to England on loavo, and his Granville chargo
will bo supplied by Rev. H. G. Fieii-
ncs-Clintou, who is expected from
England shortly..
The Snao Boat.—Tho Samson returned u fow days ago from Nanaimo, nud received orders yesterday to
begin snagging the Fraser. She left
Inst night, going to the mouth, and
will work up stream. Fishermen are
complaining loudly about the snags.
In some cases valuablo nets havo
been utterly ruined, and in some
parts of tho river fishing cannot bo
carried on. We hope tho Samson
will now be allowed to operate without interruption.
Finally Completed.— The Times is
in a position to announce that at last
the final exchange of papers betwoen
the government of this province and
tho O. P. R. Co., wjlativo to the Coal
Harbor and English Bay properties,
took place to-day. Tho delay arose
out of minor details, auch as roadway
reservations and sites for logging camps
on False Creek, whicli hnd to bo adjusted. Tho development of the com-
pany's plans will now be proceeded
with, and everything put in readiness
for tlio early construction of the extension of tho terminus to Vancouver.—
Timet of Thursday,^
Mn«. and Miss.—-In reply to an iu*
quiry, the New York World says'. Tho
titlo "mistress" (abbreviated Mrs.) has
no connection with marriage. It is
tho rightful title of any woman who
governs a homo, nnd is properly applied hy courtesy to all women married
or single. Miss is the diminutive nf
mistress, and is applied properly only
to little girls under ton years old. Girls
over that ago are Mrs. by courtesy, if
not by right. Mr. means master, Mrs.
means mistress. As a young gentleman is Mr. by courtesy, even if nut
master of a houso, so the young lady is
Mrs. by courtesy, if not by right. A
wumau having beeu the mistress of a
house and being over ten years old,
cannot shed hor title uf Mrs.
Blue Hiiidon.—At the Bluo Ribbon
entertainment on Wmlneailay night it
vory excellent programme was presented. Dr. C. E, C. Bi'uwp. vice-
president, occupied tho chair, and
thore waa a good attendance. Two
choruses were given Uy the glee club;
Miss DeBeck and Prof. Francis gave
two duets on the pinno aud violin;
Messrs. Marshbauk and Nichulas sung
a duet; Miss Major, Miss Clarke,
Misses Mamie and Georgiu DeBeck,
and Messrs, DeBeck, Clute, Marsh-
bunk aud Cunningham sang a doublo
quartette; Messrs. Marshbauk and
Nicholas and Miss Grant each sang a
solo; and readings were given by Dr.
Brown and Mr. Geo. Grant, Several
now names were added to the mil.
Oun Defences.— Tho Colonist charges T.n: Columbian with being "intensely sectional" because it intimated
that something ought to be done fur
tho defence of New Wostminster,
Burrard Inlet and Nnnaimo as well
as Victoria and Esquimalt. Our sectionalism-miist surely be of a most
liboral kind whon it extends across
the gulf and takes iu part of Vancouver Island! Wu offer no opposition whatever to the defence of Victoria, but ask that in all fairness the
defence of other places uut less important should bo remembered. The
Colonist ia su "intensely sectional"
that it discourages such a reasonable
request, and tries to persuade itself
thut Victoria and Esquimalt only
need protection. Tho plea is both
sectional, selfish and almurd.
 .--»	
Railway Work.—From Mr. J, C.
Hughes who returned lately from a
trip across the mountains, we learn
thut railway work iu tho mountain gap
is being pushed forward with great
vigor. It Jb estimated that tliere ure
upwards of 10,000 men working on tho
gap. This gap is nbout 200 miles in
length, but in that distance a largo
portion nf the road is ready for the
rails. . Wherever a comparatively level
section occurs it has beeu graded,
whilo work in tho more difficult places
hus been coming up. It is thu general
opinion that tho two ends of the track-
will uut ho joined until near tho he-
ginning of October. The work on the
uncompleted part Is in such a forward
state that when tho men begin to close
up track will be laid very rapidly.
Large numbers of men keep coming
from tho oast continually to work on
thu road, aud tho company seems to bu
using every possible endeavor to hasten
the work.
Going to Khartoum.—Tho Broad
Arrow understands that Wilfred Blunt
is abuut to organize arrangements for
making a journey to Khartoum. He
will proceed iu the first place to Constantinople, to obtain front tho Sultan
a finnan authorizing htm to treat with
tho Mahdi in the interest of peace between tho now sovereign of the Soudan
and the suzerain of Egypt. Having
obtained this power Mr. Blunt will go
forwart to Eirypt trusting to his knowledge of Arabic, his friendship for Arabi
Pasha, and his reputation to secure
him a aafo journey to Khartoum and a
favorable reception from the Mahdi.
Mr. Blunt ia a brave man, with a
courageous adherence to an idea. It
has long been his idea that tho Mahdi,
who ia more of a Christian than his
Christian enemies believe, or will
credit him with being, hns only to be
seen by a competent representative of
tho Sultan to be brought to terms nnd
to make peaco with Egypt and England.

Church Parades.- Not long ago
Rov. Gavin Lang, late of the Established Church of Scotland congregation, Montreal, preached a sermon to
a company of volunteers in Scotland,
in the course of which he said: "I
have uo manner of doubt us to tho
propriety of church parades. However, there may be those, some even
eminently pious people, who denounce
these as interfering with hoth tho sanctity uud tho rest of the Sabbath.
Christian soldiers cannot possibly be
out of place in marching, with or
without the strains of martial music,
to the Houie of God. It is their open
and avowed recognition of the Lord
Jeans Christ us the King of nations
and the Captain of their salvation,
and likewiso of tho help and strength
of common prayer for the discharge
of everyday tusk aud responsibility.
All the moro that war is a necessary
evil, it is desirable to bring the aspirations and purposes of those who are
liable to engage in it under the sanctifying influences of tho Holy Temple.
King David, because he had shed
blond abundantly, was nut permitted
to build an house unto the Lord his
God; but, when Solomon did so, according to Divine appointment, one of
tho intercessions at its dedication was,
"If Thy people go out to buttle against
their enemy, whithersoever Thou shalt
Bond them, und shnll pray, unto the
Lord toward the city which Thou hast
chosen, and toward the house that I
hnve built for thy name; then hear
Thou in heaven their prayer and their
supplication, and maintain their cause."
Could there be either exercise or petition more fitting for human hearts or
lips? Nor cau it be any longer urged,
as it has heen over and over again,
that thu likelihood of the Reserve
Force being pressed into active war
fare is either faint or remote, The
time was when it was hugely looked
upon ns a body banded together for
show rather than for use, That time
is past."
Mrs. D. Morrison, Farnham Centre, P.
Q., writing about Dr. Thomas' Kclectric
Oil, says: "George Hell used it on his
son, and it cured him of rheumatism
with only a few applications, The balance of tho bottle waa used hy an old
gentleman for asthma, with the hest results.   It acts like a charm."

General Grant.
DEATH OE A GREAT SOLDIER AND LEADER.
Mount McGregor, July 21.—
Though General Grant was groatly exhausted by tho jolting ride in his chair
Monday afternoon, it was believed this
morning that the eight hours of natural
sleep obtained by him last night had
restored a portion of his lost energy.
This belief was supported by his refreshed and somewhat brighter appearance. His pulse had scarcely tho volume it had at 11 last night, and as
morning woro on thu doctor thought
he detected evidences of a feverish
condition, but tho forenoon was passing so ipiiutly as to give strength to
thu belief that tho general wna nesting
and further recuperating from thu
fatigue of thu.trip, which had been undertaken at lii» solicitation and hy his
expressed desire, after an assurance
by himself that his strength was ei|iuil
to tho accomplishment of this purpose,
Toward noon, however, thero grew
in the physician's mind a conviction .
tlmt tho (lo/ing quietude was more of j
extreme and growing lassitude than of
restful repose* At midday there was
a slight change in the sick man's condition, which was marked by increased
weakness and less interest in whnt was
going on about him. This change wns
so slightly marked, however, that no
unusual alarm was felt by the family,
though it was deemed advisable to report the same to Dr. Douglas, who at
thtt time was at the hotel. Accordingly, Jesao Grant walked up the slope to
speak to the doctor, who came down
to the cottage. The general wus less
quiet, though he desired rest. He informed tho physician that ho had do
dined alcoholic stimulants because he
believed thoy served only to heat his
system without imparting stroiigtli
He expressed himself as feeling that
ho could endure his condition of weakness but a short time longer, and then
requested the physician to administor
a hypodermic injection of morphine,
Dr. Douglas wus not much inclined to
grant this request because he believed
the sleep and rest produced by artificial moans would too rapidly drain tho
vitality of the patient. Besides, a
lethargic tendency wus developing and
Dr. Douglas preferred that tho patient
should tako food rather than opiates.
Tho sick man, however, declined, and
insisted upon the administration of tho
morphine. At length, to satisfy him,
Dr, Douglas administered what Grant
believed to contain three minims of
tho drug, although as a fact that quantity was not administered, hut a slight
portion diluted in the usual three drops
of liquid was injected into the general's
arm. Tho sick man grew more quiet
uud seemed to sleep and thou it was
that the physician left the cottage aud
reported tho patient exceedingly weak.
It has since transpired that the general was attacked this forenoon with
tbe hiccough, and this disturbing and
weakening as well ns significant fact
was present iu the afternoon with added frequency. Tho sleep which followed tho injecting of tho morphine
was followed by renewed hiccoughing.
Attempts were made as tho afternoon
was waning to give the general food.
He joined iu the endeavor, but the
quantity retained was smull. When
the current of a goblet full of liquid
wus passing thu general's throat, its
own weight distended tho throat and
the food passed down it, but when the
last few mouthfuls weru being drained
the weight and fullness nf liquid was
not sufficient to distend tlie parts and
they closed, because the muscular
power of the throat was insulh'cient to
keep open a pussiige. The result was
a paroxysm of choking aud coughing
with thn ejection of a portion at each
attempt tu administer food.
The condition of the patient may bu
appreciated when it is known that
within perhaps fifteen minutes after an
attempt has beon mndo to administer
nourishment to him, the general wmild
suddenly look up with a momentary
expression of bewilderment av.d inquire
of his attendant, when are you going to
give me that food )'* Half an hour
might then elapse and tho sick man
might dtr/.o, but would start as if hu
had forgotten something and ejaculate,
"When are ynu going to givo mo that
food you spoke of?!' And when told
that he had just received food, but
that more would bo given, if desired,
the general would again fnll into a half
unconscious doze and mutter, "Never
mind, never mind."
The afternoon was sultry and almost
breathless, with the thermometer as
high as 87. There were no reviving
elements in the atmosphere, and the
sun'went down after a day uf stifling
discomfort, oven to persons in good
Health. The geiibr»i rcimuut>d m nio
room aud was not dressed during the
day. Ho did not move except to rise
when the pillows, kept constantly bo*
neaih him to prevent bed sores, were
beaten up ami aired. Several times
he walked feebly to the cut in tho sick
room while his resting place was being
aired, and thus tho nfternoon wcire on.
Dr, Newman came up the mountain
on the train, arriving at 0:15 p.m. He
joined the general's family at the table,
and there Dr. Douglas reported thu
general's condition. He said the patient was in a critical condition, and
thnt he would hazard no prediction of
tho future, not even of the night.
Mount McGregor, July 28,—General Grant died nt seveu minutes after
eight thia morning. All the family wero
gathered about the deathbed. As tlie
supreme moment approached, Mrs. (! rant,
in great mental agony, pressed both his
hands, and leaning forward tenderly
kissed the face of the dying general.
It was seven minutes after eight ami thc
eyes of tho general were closing; his
breathing grew moro hushed: thc last
functions of the heart uud lungs were
hastened on to tho closing of the ex-
president's life, A very peaceful expression seemed to he deepening ou the linn
and strong-lined face, and it was reflected as a closing comfort in the sad hearts
that beat quietly under the stress of the
long  suspense.     A  minute  more had
Sassed and us it was closing thc general
row a deeper breath, Thoro was an
exhalation like that of one relieved of
long and anxious tension. The members
of tlie group were impelled each a step
nearer the bed; each waited to note the
next respiration, but it did uot come
then—it never came, Thero wns absolute stillness in the room and a hush of
expectancy, so that no sound broke the
supreme silence save the singing of birds
on tho pines outside the cottage and the
measured throbbing of the engine thnt
all night hnd waited by Mountain depot.
"It's all over," quietly spoko Or. Douglas, nnd then came the realization to euch
witness Mint General Grunt was dead,
Thon the doctors withdrew; thc nurse
closed tho eyelids and composed the
dead general's head, After which each
of tho family group pressed to the bedside, ono after another, and touched
their lips to tho quiet face so lately
stilled in tho sloop that knows uo waking.
A Mount McGregor bulletin just issued
announces that an einhalmer from New
York will bn summoned hither to preserve Gen. Grant's remains, but a local
undertaker will undoubtedly conduct the
immediate details and convoy the remains to Now York. When the body
shall have reanhed tlint city the question
of post-mortem will ho considered uml
determined upon by tho family.
Touching the place for burial, thc general a month ngo indicated three places
as suiting his wishes in that direction.
The choice, however, was narrowed to
two, owing to the natural wish of the
general that his wife should rest beside
him. A strong desire hai been expressed
to the family that the burial should tnku
Elacc in Washington, and efforts have
eon put forth to make New York (its
last resting place, Hefore his death,
however, ho left the choice of a burial
spot entirely to his son, Fred, imposing
ns an only condition that the snot selected should ho suoh us that Mrs. (')raiifc
might rest by his side. His remains arc
to be removed to New York by special
train nnd there will ho prepared for
burial.

pressive of the national sorrow and concluding thus: "Tenderly mindful of his
many virtues, his patriotic services, and
of thc Ions occasioned by his death, in
testimony of respect to tho memory of
Gen. Grant, it is ordered that the Executive Mansion and the several departments
iu Washington he draped in mourning
for a period of thirty days; and that the
public business shall, on the day of the
funeral, be suspended; and the secretary
of war and navy department will causo
orders to be issued to prepare appropriate military and naval service to lie rendered on that day."
London, July 23.—Tha uews of the
death of Gen, Grunt I ma created a profound impression iu this city. Flags at
thc American Exchange and at the American consulate were placed at half-mast
tho moment the news was received,
Large portraits of the dead hero, draped
in mourning, are placed over the balconies nnd doora of both buildings. The
whole front ol tho American Exchange is
also heavily- draped. Gladstone und
John Bright were both much affected on
receiving a copy of the associated press
dispatch announcing the death of Gen.
Grant.

WASHINGTON, July 21.—Colonel Foster, United States Minister to Spain,
has transmitted to tho State Department
a roport made to him hy E. Do ta Gran-
ja, a physician of Boston, who accompanied tlio medical commission recently
scut to Valencia by the Spanish government to investigate the cholera epidemic
nud to roport upon the ctliency of the
inoculation practiced by Dr, Ferran.
Tho report says: *-Tho persons treated
by Fer ran were found to have beeu inoculated iu both arms, but presented uo
marks or scars other than those made by
the hypodermic syringe, and now almost
obliterated. Some of them stated that
thoy had had a little headache and severe pains in the arms, lasting about 24
hours after inoculation. Oue of the
most remarkable things was thut none
hud cither vomit or diuirluvu, excepting
thc small children, who, according to
one of I'Vinui'jjj assistants, had both.
Tho statistics presented by Ferrau cannot lm taken ns statistics by anybody
free from prejudice. The only thing to
be said in favor of Perran's method Is
that those who hnve undergone it hnvo
lost nll fear nf the disease, Permit states
that the inoculated du not havu auy immunity until alter five days froiiithio.ut-
lation, but he docs not know for how
many daya after tint thuy are pratooted.
The inoculated, however, do not appear
to acquire much immunity hrentiso they
attacked by cholera like tlioso uot
inoculated] The L-omniission has concluded that tho inoculations are hinflcu-
sive and recitmiilt'iid*t that Ferrau he allowed to continue his experiments.    The
opposition to the present government of
Spain tins beeu making political capital
out uf the suspension of inoculation pending the investigation, thus allowing For*
rail and his associates to pose as martyrs
iu the cause of humanity, science and
progress, It is my-opinion that Permit's
tactics will bo short-lived, and will fall
into as much discredit as thc treatment
of cancer by use of cunduraiigo, discovered sonic years ngo by one of our own
physicians."

all disorders of thc system.
English Temperance Work.
Tuinporanco work in Grent Britain
was described in the course of a speech
in New York by Mr. Thomas Barker,
a noted English temperance advocate.
lie said: "Wo hnve been busy in Kngland during thu lust thirty years
extending temperance work. Our
plans havo been modeled largely after
those in the States, and we have liad
valuable aid from the leading temper
ance men in this country, such as Mr.
Gough and tho late Mr. Dodge. I do
uot suppose wo have ntndu the same
progress you havo here, but wo have
dono a good deal, Our counties have
not tho privilege of self-government
ns in tho States, or we should to-day
have local option in Scotland, Wales,
and the northorn counties of England.
Su much wo have done. Sir Wilfred
Lawson, president of tho Alliance, obtained for local option a majority in
the houso of commons, and Mr. Gladstone has pledged himself tliat a bill
shall be brought into the house dealing with the wholo question. Formerly the members paid uo attention
to us, bnt now many are with us. Sir
Wilfred Lawson contributes §5,000 a
year to temperance work and many
others contribute sums frum §500 to
$2,600. The expenditure in Great
Britain for intoxicating liquors has
averaged during the last twelve years
six hundred and eighty million dollars
a year; this is a decrease from the
poriod preceding, a reduction partly
due to the work of the United Kingdom Alliance."
Lukes of Solid Salt.
At the meeting of the Royal Geographical Society, London, thu other
evening, Sir Peter Lumsden read a
paper on the countries and tribes ho
had recently visited west of Afghanistan. He gave an interesting description of the geography of the Murghab
valley and the customs nf its people,
nnd quoted a singular account uf the
Namaksar, or salt lakes of Yar-oilan,
visited and describod thus by Capt.
Yates:—
Yar-oilan means "tho sunken
ground," and no word can better describe the general appearance of the
valley of these lakes, The total length
of the valley from tho Kangruali oil
the west of the Band-1-dotsan whieh
bounds it on the cast, is about 30
miles, and its greatest breadth about
11 miles, divided into two parts by a
connecting ridge which runs across
from norlh to south, with an nverngo
height of about 1,600 feet. To tho
weat of this ridgo lies tho lake from
which tho Tokko Turcomans from
Merv- get their salt. Tlio valley of
this lako is somo six miles Square, and
is surrounded on ail sides by a steep,
almost precipitous descent, impassable
fn* ■ buflonuo animals, nn far as I am
aware, except by the Merv road, in the
northeast corner. Tito level of the
lako I made to bo about 1,430 feet
above the sea level, which gives it a
descent of some 400 feet from the level
of the connecting ridge, nnd of some
1*50 feet below the general plateau
above. The lake Itself lies in the
centre of the basin abovo described,
and the supply of salt in it is apparently unlimited. The bed of tlio lake is
ono solid mass of hard salt, perfectly
level and covered by only nu inch or
two of water. To rido over it was tike
riding over ice or cement; tho bottom
was covered with a slight sediment,
but when that was scraped away the
pure white salt ihoue out below. How
deep this deposit muy bu it is impossible to say, for no one has yet got to
the bottom of it, To tho cast of tho
dividing ridgo is the second lako, from
which the Saryks of Penjdeh tako
their salt. The valley in which this
lake is situated is much the larger of
the two. Tho valley proper is itself
some fifteen miles in length'by about
ten miles iu breadth. The descent to
it is precipitous on the north and west
sides only, the eastern and southeastern end sloping gradually up in a
succession of undulations. Tlio level
of this lako is apparently lower lltaii
that of the other; I made it out to bo
some 800 feet above sea level. Thu
salt iu this lake is not so smooth us in
thu other, and did not look so pure.
It is dug out in (lakes or strata, generally* of some four inches iu thickness,
is loaded into bugs, and carried ofl' on
camels for sale without further preparation.
Why go limping and whining about
yoiu corns, when a 25 eent bottle of
Holloway's Corn Cure will remove them?

IUiuvavSi'eki).-—The relative speed
of English and American railway trains
has been a subject of much heated discussion between travellers representing
John Bull and Uncle Sam. A writer
iu tiiu forthcoming (August) Harper's,
in n paper on "English and American
Railways," dkeusaes the question in
some detail, und sums up thc controversy by declaring, "The truth of the
matter is that we have trains in America which are as fast ns the fastest trains
in England, and that they have trains
in England which are aa slow ns the
slowest trains in America," though tho
average speed is greater in England bo-
cause of tlm bottor road-beds* avoidance of grade crossings, a hotter system
of signals, nnd shorter stops. On the
other hand, -i>yo carry .our psssongers,
high nud low far more cheaply than
thoy do iu Englmid, The paper compares the other points of the rival systems closely and interestingly, and is
rich in illustrations by S, G. Mc-
Cutcheun, Alfred Parsons, C. S. fieiu-
lart, and others.

Address IIARI'KR A BRtW.. New TorIT ire Intoxicating Drinks Detrimental to the Well-being ol' tlie
People,  with   Kespcct to
their Morals, Happiness
and  Unity?
A  CONDENSED ANSWER FOR TKE STUDY OF
THE PEOPLE.
Every intelligent, moral and observing mind is well awaro that intoxicating drinks are perfectly hostile to the
morals, happiness, and unity of society. All experience proves lhat there
is a regular^ systematic, insidious, and
often unconscious process of drunkard-
making goin« on nbout every liquor
saloon. Day after dny the tendency
in tho fated victim to seek for drink
becomes stronger, nnd dny nfter day
the individual force of the will to re
siat that tendency becomes weaker,
until the habit becomes so confirmed,
and llie cravings su intense, tliat the
will becomes completely enslaved, if
not entirely destroyed. Conscience
upbraids, hut self-cmilrol is lust. A
deep senso of degradation pervades the
soul, but there is no determination to
flue from impending ruin. To urutify
the tyrant—burning passion for drink
• —motley, food, raiment, position, credit, honor, a happy hmnu, Bolf-roftpoot,
and even natural affection, ave determinedly sacrificed. Onusooii becomes
a total wreck in principle, character,
body and mind. Another is a mere
vagabond, unprincipled, shameless, a
companion of harlots, a nuisance to
society and a curse to his kindred. Another is disrobed of all the nobler virtues and finer feelings of husband and
father; lib becomes so brutalized that
in a fren/<y of drunken rage he dashes
out the brains uf a loving and confiding
wife, and deluges the flour of his room
with the blood of bis own little ones.
Another, as in Scotland, iu a lit of
alcoholic insanity hurls his beautiful
and affectionate children into the bo'il-
ing cm-rent, and then leaps in after
them and struggles tu make the destruction of all complete! Oan tho
ingenuity tif Satan invent anything
more destructive to the bodies and
souls of men than intoxicating drinks?
Sin very was bud, but not to lie compared with strong drink, Wnr is bud,
but not to be mentioned in comparison
with intoinperanee in its terribly destructive ravages. Wliere wnr slays
its thousands, alcohol slays its millions!
(iougli suid, in relating Ilia owu experience, "I would give my right hand tonight if 1 could tear out from my memory the remembrance of the dark,
black, damning days of degradation."
Charles Orine said, after receiving the
sentence of denth for murdering a
hotel-keeper: "Would to God I could
banish homo from my mind! I see
htiino as plainly 113 ever- a kind father,
a dear mother, brother and Sisters, all
risu up before nio; not only once, thoy
are always with uio now. Even in
sleep I see thein. Oh! if I could only
got rid of them, I think T could dwell
on any other subject with some degree
of comfort, to what I now feel; yes,
even on the shameful death I am condemned to die; anything but what I
have lost -lost through drink. \ close,
giving yon the advice n good mother
gave me, 'Keep out nf bud company—
and don't drink.' Slum tlio (iup—tho
fatal cup." The good I-Y-nolau asserted
that wino causes disoaseu, quarrels,
seditions, idleness and fumily disorders. And Dr. Jttly declare* lhat as
litiuor drinking increases, so do pan-
pors, vagabonds, beggars, dwarfs, suicides, madmen, and he might have
added, murderers too.   Iu
(■•RANOB
The consumption of intoxicating liquors averages 40 gallons to each individual from infancy up. {3ho consumes
more brandy in proportion to her
population than any other nation.
The consumption of wine in Paris was,
in 1800, estimated at 77 millions of
gallons, being an average to each individual of 42 gallons from tlio earliest
infancy up, or (JO gallons to each individual over 15 years of age. M. Jules
Simon describes the drunken scenes in
the cabaretd among men as disgusting,
and says that thero are towns where
women rival men in habits of intoxication. The Duke of Orleans nflirmcd
that in those districts where most wine
was made there also was the greatest
wretchedness. An American traveller
stated that he saw 13 drunken men in
Paris within a walk of an hour, and
once he saw threo men wallowing in
the gutter bofore his window. Hon,
J. M. Usher, scut to Paris liy tho
U. S. government, said: ''I, tliis day,
counted within the space of one mile
10 persons very much intoxicated." A
French magazine, called "Tho Work-
a-Day World of Franco," snys drunkenness is thc beginning and end tif
life in the great French industrial centres. There uru manufacturing towns
whoro the women have followed tho
example of tlie mon, and havo added
drunkenness to their othor vices. It
is estimated that at Lille 2n out of
overy 100 men, and 12 out of every
100 women aro confirmed drunkards,
and that on Sundays the air in tho
churches is literally Infected with the
smell of intoxicating liquor made from
potatoes. Cases or idiocy and imbecility aro numerous. Ronort Tames,
Amorican consul at Uheims saya; "The
common people, brutalized by ignorance, aro rudo in manners, and given
to sensual indulgence. They nre deep
drinkers. I have never beheld a
coarser scone of debauch thnn wns
openly exhibited at Rhelms night after
night, during tbe carnival, at the theatre, iu the cafes, and in the streets,
where hoth sexes, whether disguised
or not, put no restraint upon their
tongues, gestures or conduct.'• Itov.
Dr. Kirk of Dodon, IV, b. A., says: "1
never saw such systematic druuken-
ncss—so many women drunk—as I
saw in Franco." John Plummet- says:
"During tho few weeks preceding
Lent, Paris presents a picture of drunk*
onness almost unparalleled. Tho infamous frantic revels of wliich mnny
of tho cafes and cabarets aro then the
scene are of an almost incredible character. It is lust and drunkenness in
thoir foulest mittiro." Can wo wonder
at the degradation, misery and godless*
ness of unhappy France 1
UERMANV
Is feeling the poison of Iho adder, and
tho terrible nnd widespread ruin it is
causing. In 1880 the consumption of
alcohol had increased to about 70
quarts per head of the population.
Through tho influonce of intoxicating
drinks thousands upon thousands steep
themselves in domestic misery, and
many in the frenzy of despair rush to
sniotdf and murder. Prof, W. F,
Warrtn says that one-third of Hk students of Berlin and Hallo are once a
week what you call drunk. As regards
the people, "I can only sny that during (he last five years drunken peoplo
have gone past my house, T suppose,
evvy evening, sometimes boisterously
drunk,   . and     sometimes    reelingly
drunk. Forty-one per cent, of the
prisoners committed crimes under the
influence of intoxication, Otic-eighth
of all tho suicides in Prussia were perpetrated under the influence of alcohol.
There are yearly at least 5,212 fatal
casos of alcoholism, and 2,000 persons
treated fur delirium tremens, and
mostly in tho prime of life."
ITALY
Shards very largely in tho common
curse. Prof. Butler says: "It is a
common practico among the laborers
to carouse from abuut nightfall until
midnight—whon money spent or credit exhausted, drunk with wine, they
reel home, and tho cries and groans uf
wives and children soon tell of the
fury and brutality which mark the
drunkard the world over." Iu southern Italy cases of stabbing are very
frequent under the influence of wine.
Cardinal Acton of Rome, supremo
judge, affirmed that nearly all crime
in the city originated in the uso of
wine. In tho worst wine-drinking
districts of the city life is no more safe
amid the tow dens than it formerly
was in the five points in New York.
"To-morrow," said thu samo judge, "I
shall lie obliged to condemn to denth a
man who went direct from onu of those
duns to his home, where under the influence of wine he butchered his mother and his wife."
SWITZERLAND
Is not exempt from the fearful ravages
and ruin produced by alcohol. Mr.
Lucy snys: "Here more intoxication
was obvious than iu nny other placo it
was ever my lot lo live in. On holidays and festal occasions you might
supposo all the male population drunk',
so great ate the numbers in Ihis beastly
condition."
It will require my next to epitomize
the answer to our present question,
Wm, Kent, JL D,
Dcaflt on (lie Isiiitmis.
The Ciinnl Compnny have mnde a
faithful attempt lo house their men
well, and try and keep them in health.
Quod barracks and, houses nre furnished them free of cost, They feed themselves. To provide against tho sickness and very heavy death rato n magnificent system of hospitals has been
erected on and around the base of
Mount Ancon, on the Panama side.
In the vast hospital city thero erected
nearly seventy buildings can bo counted, all of tho highest class, and woll
adapted to tropical conditions. In
short, it is a city in itself, with gas,
water residences and chapels. The
distance from the porter's lodge to tho
upper wards is ovor half a mile. Extensive stables permit carriages for the
staff surgeons. Physicians aud Sisters
of Charity, aided by a regiment of
blacks, take the very best care of the
sick. In erecting this vast system of
hospitals M. de Lesseps lias given tbo
world a proof of his knowledge of thu
"deadly tropics." So far, it is said,
over §3,000,000 has been expended on
thia site alone, and when lhe writer
left Panama new buildings wero going
up. For tliis forethought and solicitude for the welfare of his employees
AI. de Lesseps deserves lhe warmest
praise. He may build the canal with
timo and money; liu cannot alter tho
deadly climate of n country called in
England the grave of thu European.
Tho death rate on tho Panama side
of the Isthmus before tho arrival of
now fuel tor oii-easo war. oo *-er 1.000
in some years tn 80 in others, fho
reid denth rate among canal men is not
generally known to tho world. Without
having the exact figures—government
nud consular—in my possession, I may
say that it was 100 to 110 per 1,000
Inst year.—Wolfred Nelson, in Harpers
lYeddy. ______
The queen and Beatrice.
It is very evident that tho Queen of
England nnd her family have no love
of purple and fine linen when they nre
•Sill' duty." "Our royal family has
always beon dowdy," snid a loyal English woman nt Aixlus-IJaius, us sho returned from presenting somu flowers
to the Princess Beatrice on her birth-
day.
"Well," said an outsider, "what did
thc Princess wear'/ I desire to know
what princesses wear when they aro
at home in thu morning."
"An old checked black-and-white
silk dress, which I should have given
to iny maid," answered the loyal English woman: ''but sho was very lovely
aud courteous nud Mushed, and stammered, and wns frightened when we
offered her tho flowers, just liko any
oilier girl. I could not help loving
her for it."
On another occasion the Queen sent
for the doctors of Aix and thoir wives,
who, being French women, wero of
course beautifully dressed. On being
asked what the Queen wore, one of
these Indies said, "A very plain, short
black cash mo re dress, rather the worse
fur wunr, with no urnniiiont excepting
the picture of Prince Albert at her
nock."
"And how wero her mannors !" asked her interlocutor,
"Very simple, unostentatious, kindly, aud dignified,"
Sho spunks French perfectly," without an accent, and talked to tho doctor
of tho scenery, the history of Savoy,
the treatment, hatha, etc. I did not
feel that she was the Cjueon until she
rose, which wns hev signal lo us that
the interview was at an end, Then a
certain dignity, a certain habit of command, clothed her short, stout figure
as with a royal mantle, aud she looked
ihe Queen.
A Tonsil Yarn.
The Detroit Free Prea tolls how
father and sou compromised thoir differences on the circus question:
"No, my son," ho replied, as he put
on his hat, "you can't yo to tho circus." "But why, father?" "Well, iii
the first place, I cnu't fool awny my
money on such things." "Yes, but I
have enough of my own." "And in
lhe next plnco, it is a rough crowd,
tho sentiment is unhealthy, and
no respectable person can countenance such things." "But, fatli— "
"That's enough) sir! You can't
go. I wnnt you to enj.iy yourself,
but ymi niiiit seek some more respectable amusement." An hour later
n curious thing liflppeut»d iu the circus
tent. A boy climbed tn the top (light
of scats and sat down beside a man
who liad jiiRt finished n glnss of lemon-
ado aud was lighting a cigar. Ho had
Ids plug hat on the buck of his head,
and seumod to bu enjoying him- -If.
It was fathor and sou. The ful belli nd gono straight to the grounds from
dinner, und tho boy had run away.
Thuy looked at each othor for half a
minute- aud then the boy got in thu
first by whispering: "Hay, dad, if you
won't lick me 1 won't tell inn you was
here!" Tho father nodded his hoad
to the agreement, and the great spectacular parade in the ring began,

Tlio Hospital hns undergone a good deal
of repairing during tlio yoar. Tlio wntor
pipes havo beon ilxod; outhouses hnve
boon moved, and ono built for thc reception of thodenduntil burial. Whitewashing and papering has lieen done, maldug
the placo look bright and cheerful.
I havo to thank a numbor of friends of
the Institution for contributions of pictures, toxts, nnd vending matter of every
deseripttou nnd In Iftrgo ouantltle«. Also
for Ilie supply of old washed linen wlilcli
is pnrtloulnrly useful. Also, I have to
tliuiik the steward, Mr, Charles Dlgliy, for
the pains ho lum taken iu keeping the
wants clean uud comfortable: and, also,
for his kindness nnd attention to the sick.
Before closing my report I wish to suggest Hint if a fever ward, I, o„ to admit typhoid fover, could bo oponod, II, would add
very miitcrhillyto the usefulness iri Ihe
Institution, I think tlint this might be
done without much expense by attaching
tlirec or four rooms to the building ror tho
use or the steward and his family and using tho wards up stairs for fever ensos,
fulsowlsh to bring boforo your notice
the ueoessllyor more drains being .hiilll,
