Few recent developments In medical
science has attracted more attention
than those which have attended the
experiments of Dr. W. W. Myers, of
Philadelphia, to obtain a substance
which will inculate patients against
diphtheria. The announced results of
these experiments have been received
with some surprise and incredulity, but
the opinion of careful observers seems
to be that an important discovery has
been added to the list of modern reme
dial agencies. For the purposo of in
oculation Dr. Myers has used a sub
stance known as tox-albtimen, which,
according to his own. description, is
Erepnred as follows: "The diphtheria
ouillion-culture is first filtered, then
evaporatod to one-third its volume';
it is then treated with ten times
the quantity of alcohol and acetic acid,
and precipitated until a clear liquid is
obtained; this is dlalyzed for seveuty
two hours and again precipitated with
alcohol and dried. The residue is a
white substance, termed tho diph
theria tox-albumen." Two children,
aged 5 and 4 years respectively, and a
married woman, aged 81 years, who
were suffering with diphtheria, were
thus inoculated by Dr. Myers, the
tox-albumen being applied to the
parts affected by the disease. In each
case the patient recoved. In one of the
families where the disease appeared
Ave members, whose ages ranged from
18 to five years, were each Inoculated
in the left arm with this same tox
albumen. In three of the children
slight febrile symptoms 'were manifest
and slight uneasiness of throat. The
inoculations healed kindly and no fur
ther trouble developed. The children
were kept from school and in the
house all the time, occasionally in the
sick room, but no other cases devel
oped. Three children, members of the
household in which the second case
occurred, were inoculated, and the
husband and the sister of the married
woman were also successfully Inocu
lated. The left arm of the husband
was very sore for several weeks, but
yielded to treatment. The sister's
throat was slightly inllamed for a few
duys, but there were no appearances of
ulceration or false membrane. The
doctor's experiments have been equally
as satisfactory In cases of membraneous
croup, which have been treated in the
same way. " The experiments of Dr.
Myers were doubtless suggested by the
reportMi auppngg of Dr. Koch, the cele
brated German bacteriologist, iu the
treatment of diphtheria by the use of
his anti-toxine lymph. Dr. Koch
claims to have cured over 3,000 cases
of diphtheria in Berlin, aud he wants
30,0u0 from New York city for the
right to use his latest discovery.
Notwithstanding the generous size
of this required royalty, the Koch
lymph, It is said, Will receive a thor
ough trial In New York. Professor
Biggs, of the Uothani health dtipnrt
gent, who was Commissioned to go to
Berlin and study Its operation, has re
named, and brings back glowing no
counts of the lymph's efficiency. In
250 cases the anti-toxine treatment
produced the following results under
Professor Koch's prescriptions: Where
the treatment was applied within the
grst twenty-four hours, all cases were
cured; where patients were innocu
lated on the second day of the disease,
97 per tent, recovered; when innocu
lated on the third day, 87 per cent, recovered-oil
the fourth day, 70 per
cent.; on the fifth day, " per cent. By
the treatment any person who has
beon exposed to the disease can be
rendered immune if the symptoms
have not been developed. If cases
are treated within thirty-six hours
the mortality can be' rendered prac
tically nothing. It can be seen how
wonderful the treatment is when it is
recalled that the average mortality of
true diphtheria is 27 per cent. The
anti-toxine treatment rest on tbe fol
1. I thus been found that where h
person contracts an infectious disease,
and recovers from it, that person can
not contract the same disease again
for a greater or less length of time.
. 2. Many infectious . diseases are
known to be caused by specllloerms.
3. Death from an infectious disease
is not caused by the germ of that dis
ease, but by a poison (toxine) created
by.tlie germ. In diphtheria tho Klebs
Loelller bacilli of the discuse create a
poison, which, when absorbed from
the throat by the body, cause death.
4. The reason why a person who has
recovered from an Infectious disease
cannot "take" that disease again for a
Ceriodof time is because there lias
eeu created In the body of that per
son an anti-toxine, some substuuue
which neutralizes the poison of tho dis
ease, just as acid neutralizes an alkali.
6. Dr. Koch bas found that If large
animals, uch as horses, cows, etc., be
given small doses of dyphtherla bacilli
they will become slightly Nick, giving
them another dose after they get well,
und then another and another there
comes a time when no dose of diph
theria bacilli will make them sick.
They have then developed lu the blood

this is, which neutralizes the poison of
Professor Biggs, lu a lecture upon
this subject the other day, explained
further that the blood of these animals
then becomes an antidote to this
poison, It Is drawn oft In such quan
tities as will not Injure the animals
and may be used at once on a person
who has juBt contracted the disease.
As, however, the injection of the blood
of an animal into a man would create
a fever, the serum of the animal's
blood is separated before it is used.
This contains the anti-toxine sub
stance. If this anti-toxine serum Is
Injected into a healthy person It has
no febrine effect whatever, but it neu
tralizes the poison of diphtheria. It
takes from four to six months to get an
animal into the condition where the
anti-toxine substance exists in its
blood. During these months the ani
mal has to be watched ana treated oy
skilled' men. It is the purpose of the
New York board of health when It has
this serum ready to give It to physi
cians throughout the city for use. As
the work of making it Is costly, it
must be done by a sanitary board or
the Door could set none of it. The
board will ask for an appropriation of
130,000 to carry along tho worn,

CARLISLE'S PRIVATE SECRETARY.
His Health at Once Improved

From the wilds of Maine to the land
of golden sunsets, from Canada to tbe
Florida rears, rich and poor, men and
woman in high plaaes, and those wbo
serve tbelr country equally aa wall by
being good husbands and good wives
all manner of people are being bene
fited by Paine's eelary compound.
Many in hixh positions, knowing
that their example la likely to be fol
lowed, and wishing that their experi
ence may help others, have given their
testimonials to the value of this great
llr. II. W. Van Senden. the private
secretary of John Q. Carlisle, seoretary
of the treasury aayi:
"I have used tereral bottles of
Paine's celery compound, and its bene
ficial results wer manifested in a very
much improved condition of the sys
tem. Those who arts overworked will
find it a splendid tonio and nerve in
vigorator." Mr. James A. Bryan, theeity editor
or tbe Paduuan (Ky.) Standard, one of
the most influential newspapers in that
part of tht country, writing about a
month previous, said;
"I have, used several bottles of
Paine's celery' compound for nervous
ness and general debility, and the bene
by statistics. It Is indicated every
time one scans the newspapers. A
merchant encounters trouble in busi
ness, seizes a pistol and bang! out go
his brains. A lover sees bis beloved
speaking to a hated rival, gets a lauda
num bottle and goes into everlasting
sleep. A fretful mother grows weary
of multiplying cares or crazy over re
ligion and chops her baby's head off
with au axe, afterward killing herself.
Just the other day a champion run
ner, fulsely accused of embezzling $300,
ran Into the woods, leaped into a
cherry tree, tied his neck in a noose
and jumped off, breaking his jugular.
And thus It goes, world without end,
ad infinitum. Tho sapient editor of
the Philadelphia Record thinks that a
good bit of this homicidal madness
can be traced back to a prevalent prac
tice pithily summarized by the word
"nagging." Apropos he says: "Neu
ralgias yield to proper remedial treat
ment; and teeth may be pulled. But
what remedy avails when a . wife is
yoked to a nagging husband, or a hus
band to a nugglng wife? There be
children also, petulant and peevish in
infancy, born nuggers, and adept in all
the intricacies of the game as the grow
older and beyond the spanking age.
Nagging Is thanklesxness; and Shakes
peare would have hit the mark quite
as closely if he had written: "How
sharper than a serpent's tooth it Is to
have a nagging child.1 How many
thousand households are made
really earthly purgatories by the
naggers! The fault may bo forgiven
to persons atliicted with incurable ner
vous disorders? but there are hearty
and healthy naggers, many of them
unconscious of their dreadful ability to
turn sour all the pleasure of those con
demned to associate with them. They
are the fault finders who exaggerate all
petty ills that strew life's pathway Into
serious miseries. They only see the
seamy side of things, and find their
pleasure in the disoomfort of others.
Naggers are known of all men. They
are the skeletons that stride uncloseted
about the merry world. What shall
be done with them? Should there be
instituted training schools where the
youthful nagger might be taught cor
rected paces as a untrained colt ie made
amenable to harness? Should nagging
be made legal cause for divorce?
Should there be hospitals for incorri
gible adult naggers? Must we, after
all our nineteenth century advanoe-
lment, go back to the stocks, the duck
fits have been marked. I consider it
an Invaluable remedy for nervousness
aud exhaustion, the result of confine
ment, sedentary habits, and long sus
tained mental and physical exertion. I
take pleasure in rscommeadlng it to
anybody who may be thai afflicted.
This statement is made without solici
tation and with no other objeot than to
my testimony to that of others as to
the efficacy ef what I believe is a meri
torious renovator ot the human sys
tem." And N. J. Dilday, one of tbe publish
ers of the same paper, says: "I was
troubled with nervont attacks, coupled
with sleeplessness, ann tried Paine's
oelery compound. Two or three bot
tles convinced me that it is not with
out merit. I am well pleased with it,
and consider it a valuables remedy for
nervousness caused by overwork and
sedentary haoits. I am never without
