Spears, in Banner of Gold. ALCOHOL AND PNEUMONIA. Interesting and Valuable Information Obtained by Experiments on Dogi. The action of alcohol on the differ- .ent organs of the human body has been investigated so carefully and systematically that it almost seems impossible to add anything ne,w on the subject. Looking over the literature we find abundant evidence of careful study of the question in its bearing upon heart, brain, liver, kidneys and the digestive tract; but, strange to say, the lungs have,apparently escaped attention, although a few straggling notices hinting at the true relation between alcohol aad the respiratory organs have been published at different times and • in different countries. In order to determine this question I made a series of experiments during ' the winters of 1890, 1891, 1892 and 1893, and the results are embodied in this report. ' The animals used , were dogs, male and female, mongrels of* very, mixed "origin, picked' up from the streets by the city dog-catchers. They ranged in weight from fifteen to twenty-five pounds, and were all apparently in good health, if voracious appetites and strong fighting propensities can be accepted as indications of physical well- being. Twelve.animals were used during 1890-91, "ten the following winter, and nine during the winter of 1892-93. The experiments were simple. The .animal, carefully etherized, received an injection of a quantity of commercial alcohol, varying from one dram to 1 one ounce, into the trachea just below the larynx, by means of a large ' hypodermic syringe. After the nar- " cosis had passed away the symptoms were noted, from hour to hour first, from day to day later, and post- "inortem examinations made after a Certain time, varying from 'half an hour to four weeks, gave evidence of the internal conditions of the respiratory organs. i The system in all dogs experimented that died from brt»«cfceMSn«i!t&ot&ii, ftnd although oaS Is ffotn ft hflman b^ \ftfr the other from a dotf, the for me* l-epfeseffcing a well-khowtt type of disease, thfi latter an artificial form, tho similarity betweefl th* twfl i» certainly Striking enough to pfote that the 'pathologic condition 6* the iung-tissuS IS the same in both, and that the alcohol has induced inflammatory processes very closely resembling if not absolutely like, those fdUnd in attacks of broncho-pneumonia in hutnftii be* ings. AdmUtiiig then that alcohol can produce all the grades of inflammation of the lUng-tisSUe froM the mildest to the fatal form, according to the quantity used, we can perhaps understand to some extent why drunkards if at* tacked by pneumonia will succumb more speedily than the patient of temperate habits. fiy virtue of the aldohol coursing with the blood through the lung-capillaries on the one side, and the alcohol exhaled with the breath, be it ever BO little, filling the air-vesicles and air* tubes on the other side, the lung-tissue itself, so sensitive to alcohol, stands between two fires, so to speak, and must be in a chronid state of semi-engorgement, of mild inflammation, like the highly-colored nose of the drunkard or the engorged mucous membrane of his stomach. Certainly such a state of affairs will change the normal condition of the cells of the lung-tissue and reduce their vitality, and in proportion their power of resistance to external influences; and if now a severe, acute form of inflammation, such as pneumonia, is added to the pathologic conditions already existing, the lungs find them- selves.powerless against .the. attack of the disease, and the drunkards' death rate from pneumonia illustrates the time-honored law which says that an organ or organism weakened by previous ills can not compete with normal organs in fighting the battles against acute diseases in the struggle for existence, and the man of temperate habits, with lungs free from alcoholic inflammation, has from five to seven chances for recpvery from pneumonia when the drunkard has only one.— Prof. Julius Pohlman, M.

LOSSES THAT PAID. A Rnformed Drunkard's OHirlnat Way of Stating His Case. The following pood speech is nearly a verbal report of one heard at a temperance meeting: "I have been thinking, since I came into the meeting to-night,, about the losses I've met with since I signed the total abstinence pledge. I tell you there isn't a man in the society who has lost more by stopping drink than I have. Wait a bit till I tellyou what I mean. There was a nice job of work to be done in the shop to-day, and the boss called for me. " 'Give it to Law,' said he. 'He's the best hand in the shop.' "\Yell, I • told my . wife at supper time, and she said: ' " 'Why, Laurie, he used to call you the worst. You've lost your bad name, haven't you?' ""'That's a fact, wife," said I. 'And it ain't all I have lost in the last sixteen months either. I had poverty and wretchedness, and I lost them. I had an old ragged coat and a shockin' bad hat, and some waterproof boots that let the wet out' at the toes as fast as they toolt it in at the heel. I've lost them. I had a red face, a trembling hand, and a pair of shaky legs that gave me an awkward tumble now and then. I had a habit of cursing arid swearing; and I've got rid of that. I had an aching 'head sometimes, and a heavy heart, and, worse than all the rest, a guilty conscience. Thank God, I've lost them all!' "Then I told my wife what she had lost. " 'You've had an "old ragged gown, Mary,' said I. 'And you had trouble and sorrow and a poor, wretched home, A palace oi Bdlid eilvef, to be eon- Btructed from the silver in the vaults of the United States treasury, is what It. Flaherty, of frew York city, thinks would be a suitable method of honoring the beginning of the twentieth centtify. This palace ( costing some $400,000,000, would form the. nUcleUs of a big World's faif that would knock the inemoty of the Chicago exposition higher than a kite, Mr. Flaherty has embodied his idea in a letter, duplicates of Which he has mailed to the presidents of the principal Jbaitks of the city, It is entitled: "Bilvef Palace and Musical Exhibition and Festival for Opening the Twentieth Century." Mr. Flaherty recapitulates some facts relating to the great exhibition of the world and says: The largest and greatest of these fairs was held in Chicago in 1893, and attracted nearly 30,000,000 of visitors, greatly to the profit of all kinds of business in Chicago, it being estimated that over $500,000,000 was expended by the people 011 account of the world's fair. New York has never had a fair worth mentioning, and if this project is carried to a successful termination it will make much profit for all classes of business in New York in the year 1900 and add greatly to the instruction and pleasure of our citizens and of all the world as well, and celebrate the opening, of the twentieth century by a magnificent display of all the best musical talent of the age. This project is unique and original. These qualities will attract the attention of the world and make it more celebrated than any other exhibition heretofore held. The government of the United States has in the vaults of the treasury over 16,000 tons of silver in coin and bullion. It is possible to get authority from congress to use this metal and cast it Into plates and other desirable shapes and build of it the most magnificent hall or palace this world has ever seen, the design to be open for competition to all the architects of the world. In the hall, which would seat 60,000 to 100,000 people, the exhibition would be held. If this matter could be handled with like spirit and enthusiasm to that displayed by the men of Chicago in handling the world's fair it ought to bring an expenditure of at least $100,000,000 among the various interests of our city. f n* Gra*e« ttt Ait Ancient ltd** t6 Bfc produced for ft Net* tork Mttlentn. Probably the most expensive remain! ft! the mound builder* in this of any other state, not excepting those at Mftdisonville, O., are situated about 10 miles from Maystille, Ky., on the Fox fafm, near the intersection of the Sardis and Maysville turnpikes. On a tract of land 6ontaining about 6SO actes are iwo circular inclosures, two quadrangular forts, and about forty mounds. A well-concerted effort is now in progress to uncover the lonpf-bufied secrets of the mounds. The expedition was Sent out by the American museum of natural history, New York, in conjunction with the Peabody museum at Harvard. There are conclusive evidences of two distinct occupations of the mounds, traces of what are known as intrusive burials being numerous. The outer burials are the latest, and are probably those of Indians, while the lower interments have all the characteristics of another race of small-headed, small- fctatured people, the true mound builders. The skeletons so far found of the older race are in a fine state of preservation, better even than the intrusive burials. Those who placed them there had evidently dug away the surface of the ground and then burned it to th* Consistency of brick by intensely hot fires, long continued. The bodies were placed on the baked surface, the soil heaped over them and covered with puddled clay, and this again was burned to brick, so that the mounds were substantially as they are seen to-day. The labor needed to get the bones in good condition from the hard mass surrounding them is great. The baked covering and superincumbent earth are worked away with small trowels and dust brooms. A photograph is then taken of the skeleton as it lies, and it is then packed away. Each skeleton is usually found lying on its left side with the knees drawn up. , A fteligious, tt, irtoiou§ Mf 1896, For almost a quartet of ft century—f ot twenty-two yeats, to be exact—St. Kich- olas Magafcihe has beeft bearing its welcome messages each month to the youfag people of the land.

Just after the close of the war she figured in a street incident near the United States treasury, which caused considerable comment and congressional action. In those days there were cars known as "white" and "colored/* and no colored persons were permitted to ride in the "white" cars. Mrs. Tolliver broke the rule and the trouble she experienced was followed the next day by the revocation of the obnoxiotts law, She stood on the corner for a long,' time waiting for a car, but all those marked "colored'' were crowded, and, becoming impatient, she got on one of the "white" cars. The conductor proceeded to enforce the rules of the company by attempting to eject her. Ann Tolliver was a powerful woman and she h*ld tight to her grasp on the car, and at the same time screamed for assistance, On the car sat at least two congressmen and as many army officers, and it was due to their protests that she was permitted to ride to her destination. The next morning the newspapers took up the matter, t and, although it was during, the closing days of the session of congress, one of the congressmen introduced a bill revoking the law, which was passed. After this Ann Tolliver and all other colored persons were permitted to ride on the "white" as well as the "colored" cars, A Jilted Michigan Uarasol Throws Her Engagement King Into the River. A little more than a year ago a well- known Chicagoan of social pretensions, connected with a stationery house in that city, became engaged to the daughter of a prominent furniture dealer in southern Michigan. The engagement was afterward broken by the Chicago gentleman, as he had become enamored with a North Side belle. All presents and letters were exchanged except a beautiful $100 diamond ring. This the Michigan girl refused to return. For a month every effort to get the ring was made by the young man from Chicago. On Saturday last he received word to meet his former sweetheart at the Virginia hotel. He did so, with the expectation o'f recovering the ring. To facilitate matters, they strolled toward the Rush street bridge. Wheji they had reached the middle of the bridge she withdrew her glove, took off the sparkling jewel, and, as the young man was putting his hand out to receive it, suddenly threw it into the river. He was too angry to make comment, and without tipping his hat turned and walked away. • The Michigan girl was revenged, and now the North Side belle is wondering why the promised diamond does not come. said to be read by many royal children When the children of the Prince of Wales family were young the Prince took six copies for his household, and the present Crown Prince of Italy grew up a constant reader of St. Nich* fit r| ft The magazine is a help to those that have the care and up-bringing of children, in that it is full of brightness and interest and tends to cultivate high aspirations, without being "preachy" and prosy and lugging in too apparent moralizing.

Stamping of Packages for Export Not to Go Into Effect Cntll January 1. Secretary Morton has decided to postpone until January 1,1896, the date on which the order recently issued regarding the stamping of horse meat packages intended for export shall go into effect. Since the order was issued it has been brought to the notice of the secretary that it may interfere with the performance of contracts already entered into, and the postponement of the execution of the order is made to enable packers to close up present arrangements and dispose of any stock 'they may have on hand. In the meantime, too, congress will have an opportunity, if it desires, to modify or repeal the act • under which the secretary is acting.' Secretary Morton says that the packing of horse meat has been be- gun'at Hammond, Ind,, within the past few mpnths, making two points in the United-States at which the industry has been established, the other being in Oregon. * ^viSii^Ki^S^ESSsSXSSjS^^S^^Sf^ .
