For a time there was a mixture of .wheel and rider, which made it difficult to tell which would come out on t^jS- but the wheel triumphed in the eitfluggle-' and .

Curlou. CMttof a Phy.lcl»" Who DeBoi tbe Lnw of Science., A remm-kabic case of special Interest to the medical world exists at .Bradford, Pa,, says the Philadelphia Ledger. • The case is .that of Dr. A. M. Williams, who, although 'he recently had .his tongue removed, is able to. ^ilk-. He is unable to tell the nature of his disease, whieh, he says, was undoubtedly malignant. It is a sort of cancerous growth, and in order to save his life he weut to Buffalo, N, Y,, and entered ft hospital, where he had his entire tongue, left tonsil, left submaxillory ond sublmgunl glands and some cervical lymphatic glands removed. '-, With .these gone, according to general belief, speech would be impossible. Yet Dr. WillKims can speak, anil speak quite well. Ho Began to study but the subject of speech and' discovered that persons' wereN'right" nnd "left" in the use of tbe organs of their mouth and tbroat,.rjust:,as they are "right" and "left" in the use of their hands. In this case he was "left" in the use of his mouth and throat muscles, a circumstance that made his condition still more desperate, because some of thc organs of the left Bide had been removed with .the..tongue. He is inclined to the' V, theory that, while the preferred use of P° the right instead of the left hand is gen- ern.lly a case/if education or choice, the involuntary 1 discrimination that leads one to u&'aBetof mouth orthroatmus- cles or refrain from using both sets Is, In most cases, the result of heredity. Examination' of the peculiarities in their.,pronunciation of certain letters, wherein Dr.'Williams and several of his descendants agreed, but.were at variance with most'other people, and which pe- culiarities'were'in no wise due to defects of .Vocal organs, led him to form the, conclusion above stated. .He.has finally succeeded in being able to talk. In conversation he never resorts to 'ihe'pencil. He has been out of the hospital five weeks, and can spenk so as to b'e'fairly well understood. The doctor is confident.that within a short lime his speech will greatly improve. 'ST. LOUIS AGAiN LOOKS UP. btorm-Strlck«n City Ii Recovering (rom '.. . „ It» Terrible Dl«a«ter.

No 11 fortune hoe befallen any of them, and they are succeeding in all they at- empt. A dispatch ill Turkey, received en minutes ago from Dr. Hubbell, at Vrabkir, states that the fevers are disappearing day by day, which means that he has succeeded in bringing to a Bucccssful close a field of contagious evers that gave 100 cases a day for treatment, and five to twenty deaths, at tlie time of his taking it up. There are no deaths now, and a few or no cases. As I have stated before, thc other rent field of sickness,, Zeitoun and Muraeh, has been successfully closed, :he physicians released and gone to their homes, and it only remains for us to feed the convalescents. 1 have never ;nown, in all my experiences with places where contagious diseases had settled in, so radical and successful n treatment and termination as these Sields have presented.

He is buying cattle, plows, farming tools of various kinds, having 6f the spinning wheels and looms manufactured, providing cotton to be spun into thread, woven into cloth, cwfc and made into garments, and, when finished, given to-the sick and needy. Mr. Wistar has been doing the same with marked success. Dr. Hubbell will leave Arabkir in a few days to return to Malatia, where, if you remember, he passed a few days on his way to Harpoot and left with the intention of returning. The need was too imperative, and the conditions too dreadful, to admit of his leaving without further help. '•I .'can imagine' something 1 6 change that will take place in the desolate city:if Dr. Hubbell aad his trained corps of assistants stay there for eight or ten days.
