GERM IS FOUND
Scientists Now Trying to Isolate
the Deadly Growth.
RESULTS OF NUMEROUS TESTS
Microscopic Examination of the Blood
of Monkeys and Humans Reveals an
Organism Not Found In the Blood
of Healthy Persons or Animals Dr.
Samuel Dixon, secretary of the Penn
sylvania bonrd of health, explains In
detail what Is believed to bo the dis
covery of the micro-organism which
causes Infantile paralysis. Dr. Dixon
does not definitely assert that he has
found tlie germ, but he lias found an
organism In the blood of persons and
animals which nre allllcted with the
disease and the organism does not ap
pear In the blood of normal persons or
animals and it is not described In any
of the treatises of germs.
Infantile paralysis has been epidemic
for two years. Scientists are working
hard to Isolate the germ which causes
the disi'iise and to work out a treat
ment to prevent or cure It. Thus far
no cure has been discovered and the
germ has not been entirely Isolated.
The discovery of Dr. Dixon Is a great
advance, and It may lead to the dis
covery of the cause and a treatment
for the disease. '
Found a New Organism.
Dr. Dixon says:
"In examining the blood from acute
cases of poliomyelitis (Infantile paral
ysis) in human beings and also In mon
keys, in which the disease was pro
duced experimentally, an organism was
found, different In morphologic charac
ter from any heretofore described,
which may or may not on further in
vestigation prove to be the etiological
factor In the causation of the disease.
Blood smears being fixed In methyl
alcohol for one minute and stained
with carbol-thioin, the organism ap
pears as a faintly stained blue rod,
with regular cell wall about ten mi
crons long and about eight-tenths of a
micron In width, curved at an angle of
sixty to soveuty-flvo degrees at one end,
occasionally at both ends. At times the
curved end Is bulbous. Some of the
organisms appear to have a very finely
granular protoplasm when the highest
amplification Is employed."
None Found In Healthy Blood.
Dr. Dixon describes the microscopes
which gave the best results In the ex
amination. Continuing, he says:
"The bloods examined were from
ten different cases of acute poliomye
litis in children and were taken dur
ing the epidemic of last summer and
from thirteen cases of the disease' in
the acute stage which had been pro
duced experimentally in as many
"Blood smears from three normal
human beings were carefully exam
ined, and, although the search for
these organisms was diligently made,
none was found. Smears were made
from the blood of thirteen normal
monkeys with negative results. After
inocnlntlon with the virus these same
monkeys give positive results.
"Smears from the cords and brains
of paralyzed monkeys and from one
human case were examined, but none
of the organisms wns found. Deflbrl
nnted blood three weeks to two
months olej from two paralyzed mon
keys showed the forms In increased
numbers. Cultures made from the
Wood of a paralyzed monkey hi vn
rlous forms, examined after being In
oculated three weeks, showed the pres
ence of the organism In increased
numbers. Success In isolating the or
ganisms has not nttended our efforts
CROMWELL'S HEAD SHOWN.
Rev. Mr. Wilki n6on Says It Has Been
In His Family Three Generations.
The reputed head of Oliver Crom
well was exhibited at a recent meet
ing of the Itoyal Archneloglcal society
at Burlington House, London. The
Kev. II. It. Wilkinson said that the
head had been In his family for three
generations and In that time had never
been previously exhibited In public.
The tradition wns that the skull was
blown off Westminster hall and was
picked up by a sentry, who hid it nnd
only confessed on his deathbed to his
wife (hat he had It In his keeping. It
passed Into the possession of the Cam
bridgeshire family of Russell and
came to Sam Russell, n needy nctor.
Then It wns sold to Cox, the pro
prietor of the museum In Spring Gar
dens, nnd was transferred by him to
three persons, who exhibited it In Bond
street. Next it enmo Into the hands of
the Itev. Mr. Wilkinson's grandfather.
Sir Henry Iloworth said that the
evidence seemed to make it extremely
probable that the head shown was real
ly that of tho protector.
New Way of Making Paper.
Another substance from which pa
per may be manufactured has been dis
covered by n manager of a sugar es
tate nt Trlnldnd, according to Franklin
D. Ilnle, American consul at that
place. It Is ground sugar cane, to
which Is added bamboo fiber. The
combining of these two, the discover
er says, produces a substance of which
the fiber Is the right length to make n
cheap and excellent paper.
IN THE REALM
Bodices and blouses nro appreciably
influenced by the dlrectolro styles,
which call for slcnderncss. The kimo

the underarm line to the arm's eye.
It no longer swings away from the up

The chief feature In blouse fashions
Is the continued use of the matching
of so called "costume bodice." The
great use that Is unquestionably to bo
made of the dross or costume during
the summer season again puts em
phasis on the waist, which In color

is embodied in separate blouse models
is the use of the broad collars and

FOR SPRING GOWNS.
A Wide Range ot Designs and
The lace butterfly bows are much
liked by women to whom an elaborate
neck fixing Is not becoming, and a
smart example in these, with a match
ing stock, will cost no more than ?1.
A cravat, necklace of satin piping or
velvet ribbon, with a dangle of tas
sels or tinted satin rosebuds, is a now
neck kink which Is most convenient
for smarting up a plain street waist.
These little accessories of the neck
piece may match tho color of the waist
or be in black.
Inexpensive things that give a plain
waist an air at small cost are certain
round and sailor shaped collars of
black satin, edged with a hem of col
ored chiffon and finished with smart
Jabots. Any oddity, in fact, in a neck
finish Is permissible, for only one thing
Is required it must bo becoming.
A novelty in collars for coats Is to
edge some heavy lace affair on the
sailor order with a band of velvet or
an edge of chiffon, and if the wrap is
a fine evening garmeut there may be a
little -wreath of colored satin flowers
going at the top of tho trimming.
Some of tho liner white stocks arc
frequently decked with modish little
posies, a border of them topping the
finish of the jabot and perhaps a lit
tle knot showing like a brooch at the
center of the butterfly above the Jabot.
Never have wash neck fixings been
so elaborate as now. Ruby Irish, com
bined with simple lawn or embroidered
linen, sounds simple as mere words go,
but take a look at the latesj jabots in
these materials. They are like fretted
ornaments, bits of fine carving, so in
crusted are they witli their exquisite
laces, so perfectly are they made.
The newest Jabot of Irish and lawn
or Irish and embroidered linen is a
very long affair. It falls In one, two
or three drops, square at tho bottom,
almost to the waist. At tho front It is
nttached to a stock of tho same by a
tailored velvet bow or u hnndsome
brooch of some sort. The more elabo
rate of these fine fixings range from
$15 up, and It is no uncommon thing to
find one priced $30. But. of course,
there nro pretty Imitations in nil the
styles, and some of these nre as low as
Hair Puffs No More.
Most of the small hats for summer
do not require puffs und false hair to
set them off. The spring maid has
taken her hair and put it away for

Since, however, sho can't be qulto
consistent, she still clings to two hair
pins, from each one of which Is secur
ed a little bunch of curls. Theso she

Old Johnny to Circus !
I Wnyne county will be well repre
sented In Scranton on Wednesday,
May 3, on circus day. Indications
are that tho town will turn otit by
tho thousands, attracted by tho won
derful new circus which tho Bar
num nnd Bailey people are putting
forth this senson. The show hns an
entire new equipment, costing the
management $3,200,000. ' One-third
of this was spent on the parade
which is reported as the most elabor
ate street spectacle ever devised. It
is three miles In length.
The great menagerie of this circus
Is creating nothing short of a sensa
tion in towns It visits. It contains
tho most remarkable collection of
rare beasts of any zoological display
In the world, nnd many specimens
which are not duplicated In any oth
er zoo, In America or Europe. The
chief attraction hero is a yenr-old
giraffe, t'he only one ever born In
this country. In fact It Is the only
giraffe, not full grown, ever seen
outside the depths of tho African
jungle. Matured giraffes are scarce
enough but this youngster is worth
Its weight in gold.
The performance In the main tent
is presented by 400 of tho world's
greatest artists, gathered from no
less than thirty-two nations. The
acts they are offering nre novel and
notj at all like the acts that have
been seen in America in the past.
Fifty clowns furnish the comedy and
In this respect the show is the laugh
ing success of the age. Barnum and
Bailey carry 1.28G people, 700
horses, 40 elephants, 30 camels, 1,
000 other wild animals, dynamo
plants, barber shops, tailoring es
tablishments, bath parlors, laun
dries, blacksmith shops, harness
shops, carpenter shops, dentists,
doctors, a lawyer and a private po
lire force. The many tents cover
fourteen acres of ground.

KICK THE EDITOR!!!
Have you a kick coming ?
Is there anything that displeases you ?
Are you unhappy and need cheering up ?
Has any little thing gone wrong ?
Tell us your troubles. Let us help you ?
For each of the three best kicks each week, The Citizen
will give a brand new crisp one dollar bill. Don't kick too
long. 50 words to a kick. No limit, however, to the num
ber of your kicks. You don't have to be a subscriber to be a
Open to everyone alike, men, women and children, subscribers and non-sub-threobest
kicks yu,1. rlcn and poor. Remember two cents a word for the
There must be something you don't like.
Kick about it. What good is an editor any
way except to fix up the kicks of his read
ers? Relieve your mind and get a prize!
KICK! KICK ! KICK I
A few suggested subjects at which to kick! The weather, of course.
Tight fitting shoes. The high cost of living. Tho hobble skirt and the
Harem trousers. High hats on week days. Suffraglsra, etc., etc., etc. Tlie
funnier tho better.
Several people have asked us If the fifty-word letters containing kicks
have to be signed. How else will we know to whom to award tho prizes?
Whether in the event of the letter winning a prize and being published,
tho narao of the kicker would appear is another question. Undoubtedly
the writer's wishes would be followed on that score. Our idea of the
"Kick Kontest" Includes everything except direct and offensive personali
ties. Sit right down now and dash off fifty words about anything you don't
like and want to register a kick against. It won't take you five minutes
and you may win a prize. The more original the subject the better chance
for a prize. One dollar for less than five minutes work is pretty good pay.
Of course you can make your kick as short as you wish. A clever flfteem
word kick may win a prize over a full-length fifty-word one. The shorter
For the best kick of ten words or less The Citizen will pay an additional
prize of one dollar. Now then, lace up your shoes and let drive!
