THE CLEVER WIDOW.  CHAPTER   XIV.  EASTWOKD 110 I  /.  Mr. McAdam,   of the firm  ot McAdam  & Squire, was a highly polished man  who dwelt behind a ��������� highly poliVned  table in the tieatest , and snuggest of  ofiioes.' He was white-haired and ami.  able, ���������with a'deep-lined aquiline face, was  addioted to low bows, Mid, indeed, always  eeemed to carry himself at half-cock, as  though just descending Into one or just  recovering himself. He wore a high-buck-  ed stock, took Bnuffand adorned his conversation with little scraps from the  classics. u ���������  " My dear sir," said he when he had  lietened to their story, "any friend of Mrs.  Westmacott is a friend of .time. Try a  pinoh'? I wonder ' that you should have'  gone to this nian Metaxa., His advertisement is enough to condemn him. ,.' Habet  , foenum in o-trnu,'' They are all rogues.  " The doctor was a rog$e, too. ' I didn't  like the look of him at tho lime."     '  *' ' Arcades ambo.'    But now   wo   must  Bee what we can do for you.    Of  course,  what Metaxa said was perfectly right.  The  odneion is iu itself no security at all,unless  it   were  accompanied by o life assurance  ��������� ,   whioh would be an income in itself.    It is  no'good whatever."  His clients' faces fell.  "But there is the second alternative. You  might sell the pension outright.     Speculative  investors   occasionally   deal in   such  ,      things.    I have one client���������a sporting man  ���������who'would be very likely to take ' it up  if we oould agree upon terms.  ,0f  course,  I   must follow Metaxa's example by sending for a dootor." .  For the second time was the Admiral  punched and tapped and listened to. This  time however, there oould be no question  of the qualifications of the doctor���������a well-  known "fallow of tho College of Surgeons  ���������and bis report was as favorable as tho  other's had been adverse.  "Ho has the heart and chest of b. man of  forty'" said he. "I can recommend his  life as one of,the best of his age that I have  ever examined."  "That's well," said Mr. MoAdam making  a note of the doctor's remarks, while the  Admiral disbursed a second guinea. "Your  price, I understand, is ������5,000. 1 ucan communicate with Mr. Elberry, my client,  and let you know whether he caies to touch  the matter. Meanwhile you can leave your  pension paperB here' and I will give you a  receipt for them." '      <    <  "Very well.    I  should like the  money  '    soon." .   ,    '  "  "L'hatis why> I am retaining the papers.  If I can see Mr. Elberry to-day we may  let you, have a check to-morrow. Try  another pinch. No? J Well,'good-by. I  am very nappy to have been of service."  Mr. 'MoAdam bowed them out, for he was  a very busy man, and they found themselves in the'streetonco more with lighter  hearts than when they had entered it.  "Well, Westmacott, I am sure Inmvery  much obliged to you," said the Admiral.  ."You have stood by1 me when I was the  better for a little help, for I'm clean out of  my surroundings Among these city sharks.  But I've something to do now which is  more in my own line, and 'I need not  trouble you any more."  - "Oh, it is no trouble. I have Dothing  to do. 1 never have anything to do. I don't  suppose 1 could do it if 1 had. 1 should be  ', delighted to come with you, sir, if I can be  of any use."       ���������  .       . ,  ' "No, no,-my lad. You go home again.  It would bo kind of you; though ii you  would look in at number one when you  get back and tell my wife that all's well  with me, 'and that I'll be back' in an hour  or so.','  "All   right,   sir~,   I'll   tell   her.",   And  Westmacott   raised   his , hat   and strode  away to the westward, while the Admiral,  -   after a hurried lunch, bent his steps toward  the east.  It was a long walk, but the old seaman  swung along at a rousing pace, leaving  Btteet 'alter street behuui him. The  great business places dwindled down into  commonplace shops and dwellings, which-  decreased aud became more stunted, even  as the folk who tilled them did, until he  was deep in the evil places of the eastern  end. It was a land of huge, dark houses  and of garish gin shops���������a laud,ctoo,, where  life moves irregularly and where adventures  - are to be gained, as the Admiral was to  learu to his cost.  He was hurrying down one of the long,  nanow, "etoue-dagued lanes between the  double lines of crouching,  . women and of dirty children  the hollowed steps 'of the  basked in the Autumn sun.  wa������ a barrowman with a lo.ul of walnut,  and beside the barrow a bedr.ve^ied woman  with a black ftinge and a checkered shawl  thrown over her head. She wus eraok'tn-;  walnuts and picking thorn oud of the shell./,  throwing out a remark occasionally to a  roujh man in a rabbit skin cap, with snaps  under the knees of his corduroy troua.-ra,  who stood pulling a black cUy pipe, with  his Hack agini-n ttio wall. What the caiMn  of the rjiinrrcl Km, or uhat. slurp Narcmm  from ih������ woiiiaii'h lip* pricked 'cuduenly  through ihat thick skin, may u.'Vi-r be  known, but Mid.lenly tiiu man took hit pip<������  ln in?

"You internal villain '." cried the Admiral, raising his Ptiok. " Von bnite and  blackguard '."  ,, "Gain I" grot-led the rough,   with the  deep,    rasping   intonation   of    a    savage.  "G.irn out o' this or I'll���������"     He   took a  st.jp forward with  uplifted   hand,   but in  an  instant down came cut  number   thine  upon his wrist, and out inimrtT live across  his thigh, and cut number one lull   in  the  centre of his rabbit-ekincip.     It was not. a  heavy aliok,  but it was strong  enough to  leive a good rC(j weal wherever it fell.  Tli"  rough   yelled   with   pain    and    rushed   in,  hitting with both hands and  kicking with  his lrou-Fho'l boots ; but the Admiral had  a ti II a quick foot and a true eye, ho that he  bounded    backward   and   sideways,    still  raining t shower of blow.) upon  his Huv*ge  antagonist.    .Suddenly, howevtr, a pair oi  arms clo������ed round his neck, and,  glanoing  backward,   he   caught   a   glimpse   of    t,h"  black, coarse fringe of tho  wom.-n   whom  he nail  befriended.     "I've cot  him !" she  ��������� hriekeH.      'VII   'old   him.'    Now,   Bill,  knife tho tnpe out. of   him '."     Her  grip  was as strong as a   m.in'H   lind   her   wri-t  prriy-tfci.', ii'lce an iron bar upon the. Admiral's  i throat. He made a desperate effort to disengage himself, but the most that he could  do was to swing her round, to as to place  her between his adversary a'nd himself. As  it proved,ii was the best thing jihatiie could  havedoire. Tne rough, half-blinded and maddened hy theblowswirdehhe leceived,struck  out,,wirii all his ungainly strength just as  his partner's head sm ung round iu front of  linn. There was a noice like that of a stone  hitting a wall, a deep groin, her grasp  relaxed, and she dropped, a dead weight,  upon the pavement., while the 'Admiral  sprung bask and raised/'his stick once  more, re-i.iy either for attack or defence. Neither was needed, However, for  at, that moment there was a scattering,  of the crowd, and two police constables,  burly aud iielmeled, pushed their way'  through the rabble. 'At the Bight of them  the rough took, to his heeis and was instantly acroened from view by a veil of his friends  and neighbors.  , ���������*!, have been assaulted," panted' the  Admiral. "This woman was attacked and  I had to defend her."  "This is Berniondsey Sal,"said one tiolice  officer, bending over the bedraggled heap  of tattered shawl aud dirty skirt. ".She's  got it hot this time." ' <  "He was a shortish man, thick, with a  board."  "Ah, that's Black Davie, He's been up  four ' times for beating her. He's about  done the job now. If I were you I would  lee that sort settle their own little affairs,  sir." -     , -     ,  "Do you think that,o man who holds  the Queen's commission will stand by and  see   a woman struck ?"   cried the  Admiral  indignantly.  "Well, just as you like, sir.    But you've  lost your watch, 1 see." ,  "My watch 1" He clapped his hand to his  waistcoat.,   The chain was hanging down  in front. and t,ne yvatch gone.  ���������He passed his hand over his forehead. "I  would not have lost that, watch for anything," said he. "No money, could replace  it. It was given me by, the ship's company  after our Afrioan cruise. It has an inscription." '      '  '    The policeman shrugged his  shoulders.  "It conies from meddling," said he.  "What'U you give me if I tell ..you  where ic is ?" said 'a sharp-faced boy  among the crowd. *fWill you gimme a  quid?"  "Certainly."  "Well, Where's the quid ?" '  The Admiral took a sovereign  from his  pocket,  " Here- it is."  "Then 'ere's the- ticker I" The boy  pointed co tho olinched hand of the senseless woman.- A glimer of gold shone out  from betweon the fingers, aud on opening  them up there was the , Admiral's chronometer. This interesting victim had throttled her protector with one hand while  she had robbed him with the other.  The Admiral left his address with the  policeman, satisfied that'the woman was  only stunned, not dead, and then set off  upon his way once more, the poorer perhaps in his faith m human nature, but in  very good spirits nevertheless. He walked with dilated nostrils and clinched  hands, all glowing and tingling with the  excitement of the combat, and warmed  with'the thought that he oould still, when,  there was. need, take his own part in a  street brawl in spite of,his three-score and  odd years.  His way now  led  toward the riverside  regions, and a cleansing whiff of tar was  to be detected in the stagnant Autumn air.  Men with tho blue jersey  aud pesked cap.  of the boatman or the white   ducks of the  dockers began   to   replace   the .oorduroyi  aud fustian  of the laborers.    Shops with  nautical instruments iu the windows, rope  aud'paint sellers and slop shops with long  rows of  "oilskins dangling from hooks, sil  proclaimed the ueighoorhood of the docks.  Tne    Admiral    quickened   his   pace   and  straightened his figure us his surroundings  became more nautical, until  at last, peeping between two  high,  dingy  wharfs,  he  caught   a    glimpse   of    the   mud-colored  ���������waters ,cf tiie Thames, and of the bristle of,  masts and   funnels <which   rose fron*   ita  bread    bosom.

It waa not until he had signed  and sent it off that the fiill significance* of  all that he had done broke upon him. He  had nothing save only what he could earn.  But tho stoufrold heart never quailed. He  wailed eagerly for a letter from the Saint  Lawrence Shipping company, and in the  meanwhile be gave his landlord a quarter's  notice. Hundred pounds, a year houses  would-in future be a luxury which he could  not aspire to. A small lodging house in  some inexpensive part of L'ondon must be  the ' substitute for his breezy Norwood  villa. So be it then. , Better that a  thousand fold than that his name should be  associated with failure and disgrace.  ��������� On that morning Harold Denver was to  meet the creditors of the firm 'and to explain the situation to them. It, was a  hateful task, a degrading task, but he set  himself to do it with quiet resolution. . At  home they waited in intense anxiety to  learn the result-of the meeting, 'It was  late before he returned, haggard,,and pale,  like a man who has done and- suffered  much. ��������� _  '    " Wh&t'E this   board, !in   front   of   the  house ?" he asked.  " We are going to try a little change of  scene," said the Admiral. ", This place is  neither town nor country. But never mind  that, boy. Tell us what happened in the  city."  "God help me ! My "wretched business ia  driving you out of house and home I"  cried Harold, broken down by this freBh  evidence of the effects'' of his misfortunes.  " It is easier for me to meet my creditors  than to see yoa two suffering bo patiently  for my soke." , :'.   ,  c'. " Tut.tut!" cried the Admiral. " There's  no Buffering iu the matter. Mother-Would  rather be near the theatres. That's at the  bottom of it, isn't it,''mother? You come  and sit down here between us and tell us  all about it."  Harold sat down with a loving   hand  in  each of hiE.c ������  " It's not so bad as we thought," said lie,  " and yet it is bad enough.    I have  about  ten days to find the  money,  but,  I don't  know which way to turn for it. - Pearson,  however, lied at usual,* when  he spoke  of  ������13,000. . The amount is not quite ������7,000."  The   admiral 'clapped   hia   hands.    " I  knew we , should   weather   it   after  all 1  Hurrah, my boy ! Hip, hip, hip, hurrah 1"  Harold gazed   at  him in  surprise  while  the  old  seaman  waved   his   hand   above  his   head   and   bellowed   out three   stentorian cheers.    " Where am I to get seven  thoucand   pounds from,   ded?"he asked.  " Never mind.    You   spin your   yarn."  " Well, they   were very good  and  very  kind, but of course they, must have either  iheir   money   or    their     money's   worth.  They     passed,  a .vote   of   sympathy for  me,  and agreed to  wait ten- days before  tney    took   any   proceedings.

King-worm,  The affection of the skin known as ringworm is of.three kinds; ringworm of the  scalp, ringworm of. the body, and honey,  combed ringworm. All three forms are  caused by a, vegetable parasite, and all  are of course contagious. v  Ringworm of tlie body is characterized by  the development atany point on the surface  of the body of one or more inflamed patches.  These ' may be variously sized,' but are  usually abo'utQan inch in diameter.  The disease begins as a small, reddish,  scaly cluster of spots, which in a few days  at the most assumes characteristic appeal-  ahce by the healing of.the   centre of  the  patch while the eruption spreads & the  periphery.  - In ringworm of the scalp there is present  the same characteristic inflammation of tho  skin, except that in scalp infections the  appearance of the eruption is somewhat  changed by the ends of the broken hair-  shafts which'cover its surface. The gem  invades the hair and hair roots, as well as  tho skin of the scalp,aud in a comparatively  short time the hair is destioyed ; but the  baldness thus caused is temporary.  When ringworm of the scalp occurs in  the beard, it is commonly knowu'as barber's  itch, ���������  Honeycombed ringworm is what . iB  sometimes known as favua. It may have  its seat either in the hair aud hair roots, or  upon the surface of the Bkin and nails. It  is purely a'local affection, aud is due to a  special germ. " '  Favus makesJ its appearance by the  development of one or more minute pale  yellow crusts situated around the roots of  the hairs. Iu about a fortnight these separate crusts run together, into one large  crust, which is cupped in places, giving it  the name of honeycombed. '  In all forms of ringworm we should apply  at once to the family physician for a suitable germicide1, as it is only by removing  the cause of the trouble that we may expect  a euro. Meanwhile' we should keep, the  eruption clean by frequent soppings with  soap and .warm water. Jn ringworm of  the scalp aud beard we may remove a large  amount of the germ matter by pulling out  the hairs involved in the eruption.  "Good gracious I" What do' you mean?"  "It iB only right that you should know'.

This, is   frequently   met   with  among those who work late at night.    The  sufferers complain that they feel most lively  just when the time ,for retiring has "come,  aud  that a   long   period   of     restlessness  precedes a  troubled slumber  from which  the slightest,noise awakens them.    This is  very often caused almost entirely by overindulgence   in tobacco.    They , smoke just  before going  to bed,   ignorant  of the fact  that not only may tobacco   prevent sleep  temporarily,1 but that it may render it less  .deep, and consequently Icbs refieslung.    A  -grave responsibility  attaches to those who  lightly'seek to relievo a symptom which is  really a "warning by recourse to a dangerous palliative.    Tho inability to sleep-is  often merely tho outcome of a,n unnatural  mode of life,  and if this be corrected the  disability disappears of  itself.    Men who  woik late  are commonly addicted to  tho.  tobacco habit.    To  them tobacco   is   not  a relaxation after a day's work, butanerve  stimulant which enables them lo accomplish  tasks which would  otherwise be  difficult  of   accomplishment.    When   the     mouth  becomes dry, alcohol in some form or other  is   resorted   to    as  a fillip to   enable   the  smoker to  tolerate still another cigar  or  two.    Under these circumstunces  tobacco  acts as.a cerebtal irritant,   aud  interferes  with the vaso motor-, centers   of the brain  to such an extent that  tho vessels aro uu-  able to adjust thnmselves  forthwith to the  condition   required   for  healthy  and   untroubled sleep.    Discretion iu tobacco use  would   save   many   from   this  distressing  condition  of ohronic  insomnia.    Smoking  early in the day should be discountenanced  and it is equally   undesirable   within   an  hour or  so of  totiring to rest.    The bcBl  remedy for tho tobacco habit, short of total  abstention,  is to take a short walk in   the  open air after  tho last pipe.r  Under   no,  circumstances should  drugs   bo used   for  this form of nocturnal restlessness.'  LIVING   IN   A TOMB. ���������  A   Widower   Wlione Iioinr I-  In a   Vunlf  Hilli Ills --Ife's    -'cumin*.  In a vault in the beautiful Evergreen  Cemetery at Brooklyn, N. Y., there sits'  daily by the side of the casket containing  tho remains of bis , beloved wife, and sur-"-;  rounded by a strange collection of articles  associated with her daily life, an aged man  who has become' known to the numerous  visitors to tho cemetery as ",the man who  lives iu the'tonib." Since the body of his  wife was deposited in the vault, two  weeks ago, he has sptut all his days beside  her coffin and he has declared that'he will  continue to do bo until he is summoned to  join her.  The vault, an imposing structure of  granite, is built into a gentle elope in that  pari of the cemetery known as "Whispering  Grove,^on the shore of the lake. Over  the entrance is engraved in large letters',  "Jonathan and Mary E. Reed," and on one  of the stone posts supporting a' heavy  iron railing that- incloses a small plot are  found the words "Huaband and  wife."  A massive iron-barred door gives 'a full  view of tho interior of the vault, the plan  of which is unique. A little vestibule, '8  or 10 feet square,-occupies the front of tho ,  tomb*"giviug access to the iuner chamber,  which consists merely of a narrow passageway about S feet long, wilh a shelf, or  recess, on either side., In one oi these  recesses rests the body of, Mrs.' Reed, the  other' being reserved for that of her  husband. At the further end of the  little passage is , a .quaint, old-fashioned  dressing-table nnd -mirror, , covered with  various small articles of feminine iihf, and  in front of this a chair, on, which the ,'  watcher could sit beside the casket. The '  casket itself reated on the right-hand shelf,  inclosed in a double case over which was  thrown a piece of cheap Japanese matting-  gaudily painted with flowers, which had '  evidontly once served for a window"siia'de.  The opposite shelf was littered with an  extraordinary collection,of objects, including' articlesot clothing,china vases,withered  bunches of flowers, boxes, old gloves, balls  of yarn and pieces of unfinished knitliog '  The walls of "the iuner 'vault are covered  with photographs in cheap and taruished  frames. - ��������� ,  ,    On the left-hand wall of the vestibule is  o, large portrait of an  elderly   man,   with  long white'aide whiskers, and below this a  battered   camp  stool, hold   together with  pieces of twine,  On a shelf near the pioturo,  was piled a woman's reticule, an old card  rack, spoons and more pieces of unfinished  ,knitting work.    In a corner, was piled an  old   broom aud _sovera! "feather   dusters.  Like the   inner' vault, .the   walls of the'  vestibules are covered with  photographs, "  some being even suspended from   the ceil-  inp. . ,,���������',  ��������� Probably the most singular object in the  collection was a pack of oards which had  evidontly never been used, hanging by a-  string from the upper part,of the grated  door.' , ' ���������' ���������  Mr.'Reed is a'wealthy retired merchant,  living in Brooklyn.    His   wife   died* two    '  years ago, aud her body was placed in' the  vault  by her   father, Mr.   Gould in   tho  cemetery.

There is not that,virtue in eating slowly  that has long supposed lo exist, because  this function can be done so incompletely  that tho end supposed to bo subservedi is  entirely overlooked. Nor is rapid swallowing of food to be commended for practically  a like reason. What is. necessary is that  the food be judiciously masticated���������reduced  to such hashy consistency that the stomach  may the more easily digett it and so pass  onto the formation of blood-with least  delay.

Baggagemen's Bicycle Troubles.  Railway men have uome to the conclusion  that   so great is tho   number   of   wheels  consigned to   railways by   passengers that  special outs   will   have   to   be   provided,  separate and distinct from baggage  cars,  for the transportation of the machines. An  idea of tho number of wheels that are now  cait'ied   is conveyed   in the repoit of the^  buggiigo   department of the   Hio  Grand.:  Ra'ilway, which shows thai in tlie month of  July,    lti'5'   wheels were  cheeked by   tho  company over their lino���������an average ot over  ,".;{ da>ly for the mouth.    In many  baggage  cur.) racks have already been fitted up for tlie  reception of wheele, but the accommodation  is daily becoming   more iuadcquaio.    This  rush of wheels has given  a great deal   of  anxiety to the Daggagi'.meu, wiio often find  tliomeelvcs without   the   proper nie.ius of  providing   for    their   custody.    The   con-  Huqlxiiice is  that a compromise is efieeted,  and if the bagg-igenmn keeps a careful eye  on a,wheel a fee t<*   in order.

This would involve  risks and sure  losses by freezing, rotting, shrinkage, etc.,  and I find it more profitable to Bell what I  have to ioil us soon aH 1 cau .find  sale  for  it than to try to hold it for a rise in prices.  But we have to store ceiery,  cabbage and  potatoes, and roots of all sorts, and por-  haps apples and pears, even if mostly   for  home uao only. Usually it is not advisable  to till the cellar under the living rooms ful  of vegetables and fruits.    There is more or  Jess decay and a consequent  poisoning of  the atmosphere.  But when a portion of the cellar is used  as a furnace room, and entirely unsuitable  for a storage room, and even the other part  of the collar is too dry and warm to keep  vegetables and fruits in good condition, we  have very little chpnee to store what stuff  we. wish to have on hand durinc tho winter  and spring in the cellar. This is our situation. The possession of a conveniently  located regular root house will help us out  of all these difficulties. For ordinary use it  need not be large, either. But a serviceable  structure of this kind can be easily and  cheaply put up on any place. Pits or root  houses aro largely employed by professional  celery growers in various parts of the  country for winter storago of celery, and  they are indeed admirably adapted for this  purpose.  Tho pit is sunk only two or two and a  halt' feet into tho'grounii. Tho ridge pole  ib seven foot fromltho bottom,more or less,  and is held b-f stout posts.

The  country is undulating, with high hills and  mountains both east and west. It,is very  ferule; producing, in addition, to the usual  cereals, maize, buckwheat, roots, grapes,  and'firstclass qualities of fruit. There "is  all that'intensity of cultivation which is  characteristic of French agriculture, and in  driving about the couutry one ie Btruck by  the tact that scarcely an inch''of room is  wasted.

The   length of body, or  keel,  combined    witn    tlesh-torming" qualities,  explains why it is that they   prove such  magnificent table  fowls.  ���������  .Hints and Helps. ' ,  ��������� '        " , ' ^ (. ���������  A housekeeper declares against screens,  and in favor of lavender, to ,mitigate the  fly nuisance. She throws her windows wide  open to the air, and relies; as her mother  and grandmother did before her, according  to her. testimony, solely on lavender for  protection. Five cents' worth 'of oil of  lavender, mixed with au equal amount of  water, and uised in a common atomizer,  about the table and wherever flies are annoying, will banish these small tormentors,  and shed beside a delightful aroma of cleanliness. ..'    ^   i-=        '        -    ;  Apply sweet spirits of nitre to mosquito  bites, and it wili draw out all soreness and  itching,if the skin is not broken by scratching it. i " ,.  , If the seams of a new tin pail or pan are  well'greased with fresh lard or sweet oil,  and the pail tet on a'stove shelf or other  warm place for twenty.four hours before it  is washed, it will not rust afterward,  A simple way to remove grease spots  from wall paper.caused by the head resting  against the wall is to hold a piece of clean  blotting paper over the spot and press a  moderately warm flat iron over it. Repeat  the operation until all the grease is out.  When a ham or a large piece of moat is  boiled for slicing cold," use plenty of water  and let the meat siand.-io it until cold, tor  by so doing the meat will reabsorb much of  the nutriment which has been drawn out  during the boiling process.  A cleaning fluid tot men's clothes that  the housewife will find .valuable consists of  one pint of deodorized benzine, one-half  drachm sulphuiic ether, one-half drachm  chloroform, one drachm alcohol, and a very  little good cologne. If it is used for cleansing coat collars aud outside ' gat meats,  apply with an old piece of soit black silk.  For neckties���������and it can he used on those  of light colors as vveil as black���������apply with  a piece of white silk. In wushinc soiled  black goods put a tublespoon'ful in a gallon  of warm water. Twenty or twenty-five  cents will pay the druggi������t for a quart  bottle of the mixture.

An  IIiiIIiiii'h .Ulea.'.;   IM^r-overj-��������� llnvngc*  ,���������or Ihe  IllM'iiM' iu France.  A new euro for consumption has been reported by Consul Chancellor, at Havre,  Ho s.iys the cute was firtt brought lo tho  iit'cnlion of the world at a congress of  physicians and scientists at Bordeaux to  consider tho question of combatting oou-  su-nption by vaccination. Prof. Mangli-  alio, an Iiahan, lead a paper which attracted much attention, claiming to have  discovered an cliicacious ptoccss for the  U'ealtneut of consumption by the injection  of luberoular seium, which he frays renderi  the subjects of disease immune. The  Consul recalU the comparative failure of  other attempts to treat consumption sue-  cea-jfuily, ana "ays this particular process is  still in cheexperimental etage. The paper  is open to veveial suggestions, for Prof.  Marigliunn gives no precise information as  to his process for obtaiumg iho serum,  which can be had only,from himself; his  statistics are incomplete and lacking confirmation, and his lntal.iblc remedy cannot  be yet regarded ad an accomplished fact.  Incidentally the Consul gives some  starthnc; figures of the ravages of connirnp-  tion in Pans. He shows that it ca-ises  thirty-eigiit limes more death than tmnll-  pox and scailet fever combined, sixn-er.  times more than typhoid fever and eiwht  times more than diphtheria, and is tivt  times more fatal than those maladhc  combined. In fivn year" (3 all France  there were 409 deaths from consumption  per 100,000 people, a greater mortality  than that caused 'by the most maliKuaul  epidemic of ohoicra.  -i <7,*.-ni���������,m>--  8iv������..jrj  "  -"*".T" ������  ,-V-rfi. -ufCu*,' A���������J���������  PAGE I  THE KOOTEXAY'MAIL.
