The 3IittHtrel« Last A'isfit. ' The same yesterday, to-day and forever, yet whore breathes there a man with soul BO dead that he finds no delight in sitting- in front of that : familiar and time hoaored semi-circle of cork blacked faces glistening under the glare of the foot lights? The same old scene was presented last evening at i)olan's. Many familiar and warmly welcomed laces were seen in the semi-circle and pretty much the same faces were seen in the audience, faces that are rarely missed at a minstrel performance. With the inimitable Chas. Sully,the unchangable Billie Rice, the ponderous Thatcher, the ovet- pleasing Hall, the parodoxieal Harry Constantino, 4he sweet voiced Evans, the lightning Kissell and aa many more and more yet sweet .toned or laughter provoking exponents of modern minstrely, the entertainment was never allowed to lag or to lose interest and when the mirthful parody "Bill Trovatore" closed and with it the program the crowd departed full of good feeling and kindly words for Haveriy's Mastodon Minstrels.

Dr. S. E.' Weber, assistant state veterinarian of Pennsylvania, read before the Keystone Veterinary Medical association, at the College of Physicians, a paper entitled "The Rat as a Disease Breeder." The essayist advanced the theory that the rat is a transmitter of some of the most dangerous diseases which afflict humanity, chief of which is tuberculosis or consumption. He cited the results, of post-mortem examinations on more than one thousand of the animals in proof of the theory, and then discussed the best way of getting rid of them. Dr. Weber said that nowhere does the ubiquitous rat do more, harm as a disease transmitter than ia the farm yard and barn, where he comes in contact with the cattle and horses. The paper, in part, is as follows: "From the time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the contrary the rat has been looked upon as one of the most persistent enemies of the human race. He has destroyed the garnered treasures of millions of farmers, rendered millions of acres valueless to the husbandman,' undermined houses without number, and even depopulated .whole provinces by bringing-the labor .of men to naught. His record does not -rest upon the traditions that tell us of the wonderful doings of the Pied Piper of Hamelin, the important 'part he played in making Dick Whittington, 'twice mayor of London,' and .the just punishment he meted out to Bishop Hatch in his corn-choked castle on the Rhine. He has been a pest in every clime, and will so continue to be .until in the development of the distant future he shall either disappear or evolve into some harmless, guiltless creatcre as useless as the axoloid of Mexico or the lazy hellbender that rests liis boneless body in the muddy bed of the Miama river. "There is but one good word to say for the rat While at all times prompt to take for his own use the choicest food that man can provide for himself the rat does excellent service as a scavenger and consnmes tons of refuse material which,. if allowed to putrify, would become the certain means of pestilence and death. It is only as a scavenger that he seems to have been de- sifrned; and it is of record that the terrible plagnes which, used to turn the' towns and cities of western. Europe into charnel houses hare been but little known in those places since rats beer an -_o oe among- tne greatest lactors in economy of the animal world. "The plagues and pestilences of by-gone centuries do not decimate the population of western Europe nowadays,, it is true. But while they have given*, their own stamping grounds a wide;berth they have not been routed out by any means. It is possible that the rats?; who helped to rid England of a pestilence carried the germs of the disease;to Turkey or to Hindostan. This brings. me to the consideration of a subject, which will at once present itself to the- mind of the medical scientist as one of:' the most important ever called up for discussion. "When the reader thinks of the countless n limber of rats that infest the- regions occupied by human beings, of their wonderful reproductive power; and of their seemingly causeless but 1 , rapid immigration from one dwelling-' place to another, hundreds of milesi away, he must admit that if it-is possible for the rat to convey disease germs from point to point this power for evil is incalculable. When he left plague- stricken London and sought another- field, did he leave the plague behind or- did he keep a share of it to. distribute elsewhere? "I liave reason to believe that the? rat is a transmitter of some of the most dangerous diseases which afflict humanity—diseases that have for ages baffled the skill of the ablest scientist. in the- tho world."—N.
