In the December number of the
Lackawanna Bell, the Railroad Young:
Men's Christian association gives a list
showing- the increase in membership
during the year 181U. The ligures are
the best possible commentary on the
noble work done by this branch of
Christian men. In January the mem
bership was 117, and not a slnge month
has witnessed u decrease in member
ship. In March and April there was no
advancement, but the 316 mark was not
receded from. Indeed, from March to
June, the Increase was not marked, but
from the beginning of July ithe mem
bership grows rapidly and on the end
of November th 400 mark has been
reached. Early In this month the num
ber reached 455 and today the 500 mark
lias been passed. This work Is very
complimentary to the membership com
mittee, and is very encouraging to the
secretary, F. V. Pearsall.
Hoard of I diicution.
The board of education of the Method
ist Kpiscopal church, of which I'ishop
Andrews is president, held its annual
meeting at the office of the board In
New York city, last Tuesday. The ob
ject of the society is to support deserv
ing young men to enter the ministry,
who are not able to pass through col
lege and seminary on their private re
sources. During the last year the board has
aided 1,539 students In a hundred dif
ferent Institutions scattered all through
the states. This was done at an ex
penditure of over $70,000. Its total re
ceipts the last year from ull sources
were $.X4,3."9. .'Much of this money Is col
lected by special offerings being made
In the Methodist Episcopal churches
and Sunday schools on Children's day.
The board reorganized and liishop An
drews was re-elected president, and Dr.
A. S. Hunt, recording secretary.
One of the most flourishing organlza
1 tions of recent years for the benelit of
boys Is the Boys' brigade, of which
Rev. .J It. Adams, of San Francisco, Is
president. There are similar organlza
tions among the Baptists and Method
ists, and at the recent convention of
the national movement, held In Chi
vago, attempts were made to unite the
three. The representatives present
from the above two denominations did
not find anything In the national body
that they could not Indorse, but they
thought It expedient for the present
to continue tht.'r work along denomi
national lines iMiere are ut present in
the national organization, 463 compa
nies, scattered in twenty-seven states
and territories, comprising over 16,000
members. The headquarters have been
moved from San Fransisco to Chicago,
and the name of the organ of the move
ment is changed into the Knapsack
The main Idea In the movement Is not
military, but ethical and religious
During the past year 14 per cent, of the
boys were converted and brought into
the church, which made an addition of
2,000 souls. This Is most significant,
when it is known that the most efllclent
work of the organization Is done in
the slums of lurge cities, where boys
are bred In vice and crime, and It Is an
titter Impossibility to have them enter
a church or a Sunday school. They are
reached by their Inclination to the
military spirit, and by enforcement of
discipline, they are taught obedience
and morality, and are gradually led to
the Captain of Salvation. A new
hymnal will soon be prepared for the
use of the boys, and an ambulance
porps manual will also be Issued that
will teach them how to treat wounds,
care for the sick, and help In cases of
emergency. There are several compu
Dies In our city doing very good work.

Ever and always something new! Noit
many weeks ago, In this column of The
Tribune, we narrated the peculiar rem
iniscence of how Artist H. U. Rowley,
once of Plttston, got the better of a moat
rebellious stomach by literally plaster
ing It over with table musturd. Now
comes another grotesque cure for dys
pepsia acuro which leaps incontinently
to the directly opposite extreme. The
Rowley cure was a hot one. This is
ice-cold. Last week, In London, during
a lecture before the Academy of Medi
cine, Professor Plctet outll-ned with
much care a system of frlgotlierapeu
tlcs. He began by experimenting on
dogs, und found thnt when they were
plunged Into a bath ut low temperature
and were kept there for some time they
became ravenously hungry. Being him
self a sufferer from stomach disease he
had forgotten what It was to have an
appetite. So he descended into the re
frlgeratlng tank at a temperature many
degrees below zero. He wrapped
thick pelisse and other warm clothes
about him, but after four minutes ho
began to feel hungry. At the end of
eight minutes he climbed out of the
tank with a painfully keen appetite
Many such experiments were mude
All meals taken, after a short stay In
the refrigerator, agreed with him. He
found that his dyspepsia was cured after
the tenth descent. In dog days this
wouldn't be bad. But In Decembe
with the wind roistering out of doors
and the mercury wheezing down to
ward the bulb ugh!

Science Is still casting Its chilly eye
on that agreuble pastime of fair maid
ens nnd love-sick swains kissing. Sci
ence Is evidently determined, in Its cold
materialistic fashion, that kissing must
go. Says a malter-of-fact scientific
"Kissing may be conventionally divided
Into two classes those which belong to
and are intimately associated with the
warmer passions of the heart nnd thoo
which are purely conventional. In view
of the exacting demands of modern sani
tary principles, in neither case Is the hab
it desirable or even permissible. Never
theless, It is only waste of labor for medi
cal mentors to protest against the habit
so far us the first 'order' of kisses Is con
cerned. With respect, however, to the sec
ond variety of kisses, the matter Is differ
ent. For the most part , the habit Is prac
tised upon children both girls and boys.
Among ourselves, too, kissing to a Inrg
extent prevails. But the lucillty with
which diphtheria, measles, whoopin
cough und scarlet fever lire transmitted
in early life renders the habit one which
common sense will show to be open to
grave objection. However essential con
volitional Kisses may lie regarded as a
means of demonstrating friendship and
politeness, parents should, nevertheless.
we think, consider In this matter the wet
fare of their children first. Our condem
nation of kisses may, lor practical pur
poses, be restricted to the objectionable
hut common practice of kissing on the
mouth. Among grown-up people It Is un
becoming, to say tho least, while toward
and between chldren the practice is open
to the gravest suspicion. Children can bo
trained with the greutest euse to offer tlia
cheek or the forehead for the proffered
caress, and to elude the uttempt to con
taminnte the lips. The Incubation period
of all the diseases mentioned may, or may
not, be Infective in tho ordinary accepta
tion of the term. I. poll this matter our
knowledge, so far, is by no means certain,
while, on the other hand, recent lnvestlg.i
tions would seem to Indicate that the In
fectlon of zymotic diseases In patients Is
of very much longer duration than used
formerly to be supposed, enduring, In
deed, long after convalescence has be;-n
Hence, down with klssng! Slightly
Illogical, you Bay? Well, yes. But
there's this consolation. It won't make
any difference. People will kiss and
other people will be kissed, microbes or
no microbes. Infection or no infection,
to the end of time.

A well-known medical writer thus de
scribes the physiology of a cold: "Phys
lologlsts hnve said that If a few drops
of tho blandest fluid In nature lire In
jected Into n blood vessel against the
current death Is an Instantaneous re
suit. Millions of canals or tubes from
the Inner portion of the body open thel
little mouths at the surface, and through
channels, as ceaseless as the flow of
time, a fluid containing the wastes und
Impurities of the system is passing out
ward, and Is emptied out on the skin
This fluid must hnve exit or we die In ti
few hours. If it does not have vent at
the surface of the body It must have
some Internal outlet. Nature abhon
shocks as she does a vacuum. Heat dls
tends the mouths of these ducts and
promotes a larger and more rapid flow
of the contained lluid; on the othe
hand, cold contracts them, und the fluid
is nt first arrested, dams up and re
bounds. If the purest warm milk, In
jectea against tne current, Kills in n
moment, not from any chemical quality
but from the force against the natural
current, there need be no surprise n
the 111 effects of suddenly closing the
mouths of millions of tubes nt the sam
Instant, causing a violence at every pin
head surface of the body. If these
mouths are gradually closed nature hn
time to adapt herself to the clrcumstan
ces by opening her channels Into th
great internal waterways of the body
and no harm follows. Hence the safety
of cooling off slowly after exercise or
being In a hented apartment, and th
danger of pooling off rapidly, under the
same circumstances, familiarly know-
by tiie expression 'checking persplrn
lion.' The result of closing the pores o
the skin is various, according to the di
rection the shock takes, nnd this Is nl
ways to the weakest part; In the llttl
child It is to the throat, and there is
croup or diphtheria; in the adult It is to
the head, giving catarrh In the head or
running of the nose; to the lungs, glv
Ing a bad cold, or If very violent, raus
Ing pneumonia or inflammation of the
lungs themselves; or pleurisy, inllnmma
tlon of the covering of the lungs; to the
bowels, causing profuse and sudden dl
orrhea; or to the covering of the bowels,
Inducing that rapid und often fatal mnl
ady known as peritoneal Inflammation
If the current is determined to the liver,
there is obstinate constipation, or bil
lous fever, or Blck headache,

NEW (TRKKMY PLAN.
How to Have .Money Without Interest for
Public Purposes. Ipon u City, County
and State llond Ilusls.
Editor of The Tribune.
Sir. I well know that any lnnova
tlon, having in view the reform or ex
pansion of our present currency circula
tion no mat-tor how solid the basis for
this Innovation may be, or how just its
claims Is Instinctively frowned upon
by the banking and moneyed classes,
who fear for privileges acquired; as
well as by the thoughtless and Ignnr
ant, who either will not or cannot
understand reforms In favor of the
great masses of the people. But the
financial reform is the Ilrst and greatest
of all reforms, because capital controls
labor, inasmuch as capital is the only
medium of exchange through which
wages, or the price of labor, Is de
termined. And consequently the flnan
ciul question must control the labor
question and lives at the basis and foun
dution of the solution of the so-called
social question of the day.
We see throughout the financial
movement of the whole world that prices
rise whenever the currency circulation
Is Increased; and, on the other hand
thnt prices fall whenever the circula
tion Is contracted. And, furthermore
that with rising prices the condition o
the laboring classes is Improved, be'
cause the price of labor rises also,
whereas, when money Is scarce, labor
Is Ill-paid. This law Is universal and
well established. It must consequently
furnish the true key for improving the
condition of the working population
which Is to Increase the volume of
money In actual circulation. This,
deed, Is the first nnd most "Important
step toward the people's financial
emancipation nnd without which all
thought of radical and permanent re
forms Is an Illusion. Therefore, the
question is, How can we Increase the
money circulation on a sound basis for
the direct and evident benefit of the
people at large?
One Plan Outlined.
It seems to me that this might he done
In the following manner: We all know
that. United States bonds nre accepted
in the United States treasury on deposit
us lawful security for an Issue of bank
notes full legal tender to the umount
of 00 per cent, of the face value of the
bonds. And, moreover, that these bank
notes, printed by the government, nn
Issued to our national banks absolutely
free of interest and with a tax of only
1 per cent. Nevertheless, there are mil
Hons of dollars worth of state and city
bonds In our country which nre in every
respect of as good intrinsic value a
any United States bond, nnd which
moreover, are considered us such by
private capital for Investment.
Then why not permit these bonds as
good us our federal bonds to be re
ceived In the United States treasury as
lawful security for an issue of bank
notes on the same terms us the Unite
States bonds? which Is that thl
money would bo full legul tender an
without interest. Thus the bonds on
deposit would be non-lntcyest bearing
and constitute n lonn of money without
Interest for public purposes, nnd for the
side benefit of the taxpayers and the
people In general.
The bonds In question could be re
deemed by annuities paid yearly I
gold coin If need be, say at the rate
of f or 6 per cent, of the capital loaned
and these bank notes could be with
drawn from the circulation and can
celled as the above payments were
made. Furthermore, it could be re
quired thnt life first money collected
each year through tuxes in center:
where these bonds had been. Issued
must be sent to the United States treas
ury for their redemption as stipulated,
And In cubo of non-payment the federal
government could be authorized to co
lect the taxes directly in these centers,
Besides a small tax, say 4 of 1 per cent
Beecham's pills are for bili
ousness, bilious headache

could be levied on the whole Issue as a '
reserve fund In case of emergency.
This Plan's Advantages.
The advantages- of a national cur
rency Issue of the above nature are
evident. Calculating at a t per cent,
rate the money saved every twenty
years to the taxpayers would equal the
whole race value of the entire Issue.
And private capital otherwise Invested
In these bonds would be. free to seek
new investments and our stock of cir
culating money would be increased In
the same ratio. Furthermore, the re-
eptlon of the bonds in the United
States treasury could be conditioned on
the approval of such by a special com
mission. I will also add that our present Issues
of bank notes'dependlng on and main
tained as parity with gold by the $100,
000,000 gold reserve fund Is about one
thousand million dollars. These Issues
could be gradually withdrawn and the
currency Issues I propose take their
place. And this new Issue would then
have the same $100,000,000 gold reserve
fund to keep it at par, while the ad
vantage of such a measure would be In
saving millions of dollars to the tnx
payers and Increasing at the same time
our circulation which would prevent
the need of such great sums borrowed
abroad and which are a great drain on
our national prosperity.
I give' the above plan In outline only
and on general principles. Many cur
ency schemes are being proposed at
the present hour, and as this one would
save enormous sums to the taxpayers
undf would have as good a basis and
the same reserve fund qb our present
paper issues, I thought it might be
worthy of the attention of the people
for whose sole benefit it ought to bo
Inaugurated. And I cannot see. on the
ither hand, where It could Injure any
other class of respectable- Interests,
and so far as its fundamental princi
ples, are concerned I consider them as
sound as they would be beneficial to the
