President Augustus II. Stronff, D. D..
LL. D., has written three very able ar
ticles on "Ethical Monism" in the
Examiner, which have aroused criti
cism in many quarters, and especially
so among the Baptist denomination in
whose org-an the essays appeared. Dr.
Strong says that "tt Is not too much to
say that the monistic philosophy, in its
vurious forms, holds at present almost
undisputed sway in our American uni
versities. . Harvard and Yale, Brown
and Cornell,, Princeton and Rochester,
Toronto and Ann Harbor, Boston and
Chlcstgo, are all teaching it." Monism
has ever been regarded as pantheistic,
nnd against this Mr. Strong fences in
Ills system with remarkable ingenuity.
The crucial test of Monism are the fact
of sin and the atonement of Christ, and
to harmonize these theological doctrines
with his philosophy, taxes both the,
president's reasoning and exegesis. ' He
iiccounts for personalities by saying
that God has limited and circumscribed
Jilmself, and to the objection how can
there be innumerable personalltlus and
yet but the one substance, he falls back
on the doctrine of the Trinity, which
teaches three infinite personalities in
the one substance of God, and whoever
believes this cannot consistently deny
that in the same substance there are
multitudinous Unite personalities. Or
thodoxy will hardly accept such a state
ment as the following of the Son of
Ciod: "It is Impossible that He (Christ)
who is the natural life of humanity
should not be responsible for the sin
committed by His own members."
Dr. D. C Hughes, of the Jackson
Street Baptist church, will read a paper
on "Monism" next Monday morning be
fore the Pastors' union, when he will
discuss the philosophy of Dr. Strong in
Its relation to orthodox theology.

A recent bulletin of the state board
of health embodies some valuable in
formation about diphtheria. It says:
"Whenever a child or young person has
a sore throat, with a bad odor to its
breath, especially if It has fever. It
should immediately be separated from
all other persons, excepting necessary
attendants, until it is ascertained by a
physician whether it has diphtheria or
some other coinuulcable disease. Mild
cases may communicate malignant and
fatal forms of the disease. Diphtheriu
is believed to be caused by a special
poison (eontaglum) which may be con
veyed to persons previously unaffected,
by personal contact, by infected cloth
ing, rags, hair or paper or by any of
the discharges of the body of a person
sick of tho disease. The seeds or germs
of this terrible disease may be received
from anything which has touched the
sick person, as air, food, clothing,
sheets, blankets, furniture, toys, books,
wall paper, curtains, cats, dogs nnd
flics. The discharges from the throat,
nose and mouth are believed most fre
quently to contain the germs of the
dlseaseand to communicate it to others,
but the discharges from the kidneys
nnd from the bowels are also dnn
gerous. ' The diphtheria poison lias
great vitality, and may lie dormant
in clothing, blankets, papers and houses
for weeks, and even months. It seems
to be able to travel in the air of sowers,
and thus to pass from house to house;
also to rise in the emanations from
putrid privies and cesspools. It can
also, undoubtedly, Infect foods, milk
nnd water, and with thorn enter the
bodies of children. Tho time which may
Intervene between exposure to the
pioson of diphtheria nnd tho appear
ance of the symptoms of the disease
varies. It may be from two to six days;
the average is variously stated at from
six to ten duys, but the time may be
extended to five or six weeks.
"Adults, whose services nre not need
ed, should keep away from the disease
When necessity requires one to visit
such house, the clothing should after
wards bo changed and a bath taken be
fore going where there is a child. Be
ware of any person who has a sore
throat. Do not kiss or take the breath
of such a person. Do not drink from
the same cup, or use any article handled
by such a person until it Is disinfected.
Whenever a child complains of a sore
throat, or Is In the least hoarse, itshould
receive careful attention from Its par
ents or friends until It recovers. When
ever the disease Is prevalent In any dis
trlct, children should be removed from
the day und Sabbath schools. They
should also; at these times, not travel
In the public cars or public carriages,
the upholstered seats of which muy har
bor the poison. Parents in whose fami
lies the disease has broken out, who are
able to do so, may send their children
unaffected with the disease, to homes
in which there is no one liable to con
tract It. But whenever such removals
are made, the children should not mingle
with the public until after the lapse of
two weeks. From families in which this
disease Is prevalent, children must not
attend school, church, or any public as
sembly, und adults should likewise ab-
slain from attending church and public
assemblies us much as possible. Close
attention should be paid to the sources
of the water and the food supplies. If
lMissible, only tho purest water should
be used. If there Is any doubt about
the purity of the water, boil It thorough
ly before using it. Food and milk should
not be used which come from a house in
which there Is diphtheria (or any con
tagious disease), for these articles may
carry tho germs of the disease. Perfect
cleanliness should be enjoined in the
house and all its surroundings. Sewer
gas must not be permitted to enter the
house. All foul odors must be destroyed
in privies und cess-pools by the appro
prlate disinfectants. Let the house re
ceive all the pure air und sunlight pos
sible. Do not send your clothing to a
public! laundry to be washed during an
epidemic of diphtheria."
"It Is of vital Importance," says a
well known authority, "that an upper

We have heretofore alluded to the
excellence of the common apple as a
remedial diet. And now we havo the
American Practitioner's word for it
that the phosphorous in the apple Is
admirably adapted for renewing the es
sential nervous matter lecithin of the
brain nnd spinal cord. It is, perhaps,
for the same reason, rudely understood.
that old Scandinavian traditions ropnr
sent the apple as the food of the gods,
wild, when they felt themselves to be
growing feeble and Infirm, resorted to
this fruit, renewing their powers of
mind und body. Also the acids of the
apple are of singular use for men of
sedentary habits, whose livers are slug
gish in tiction, those acids serving to
eliminate from the body noxious mat
ters, which, If retained, would make tho
brain heavy nnd dull, or bring about
Jaundice or skin eruptions and 'other
allied troubles. Some such experience
must have led to the custom of taking
apple-saucs with roast pork, rich goose
and other like dishes. The malic acid
of ripc'npples, either raw or cooked,
will neutralize any excess of chalky
matter engendered by eating too much
meat. It is nlso the fact that such ripe
fruits as the tipple, the pear and -the
plum, when taken ripe nnd without
tiugar, diminish acidity In the stomach,
rather than provoke It. Their vegetable
Baucea nnd Juices are converted Into
alkali carbonntes, by the chemical ac
