Nitw York, May 13. It ia with no in
tontlon of dtniraging tho testimony of
enthufllaiititi Kraduutc of tho "gold
euro," thnt 1 proixxm to toll tho result
of tny own liivcNtlKHlion. If a nmn Ims
boon in tho tcrriblo thrnlldotn of nlcohol,
and has found nny dolivornnco from it
by nny menus, It is natural and right
for him to prniso God and nny of his
instruments thnt may liavo ministorod
toward his roloaso.
But it is pertinent and really noccs
snry to look further into tho matter bo
foro docidiug on tho testimony of ono,
or ono thousand, or ten thousand per
sons who bolluvo that they have derived
buneilt from it, that any proprietary
medicine. Is really safo nud good. Be
onuso Smith's pills liavo cnrel ono man
of rhouumtism it by no menus follows
that they will cure another man of a
broken leg, or of fit.
What, then, is this remedy? Its author
is n man who has achieved great famo
by treating victims of alcoholism, tho
morphine and tho cocaine habits. Many
of his patlentn claim honestly to bo
cured. Many lmvo relapses, somo havo
gouo mad and moiiiu have died. It is
manifestly within tho province of tho
medical profession totlecldo whether tho
cures nro permanent, and whether tho
disasters are in any way traceable to tho
Doctors, however, liavo boon unablo
until recently to oven study these cases
because the gold eurlst refused to tell
what ho wax using. All they know was
that ho took thousands of pntienU widely
different in habits, constitutions, ills
eases and conditions nud subjected them
all to tho saino treatment. Ho injected
into thorn what ho called bichloride of
gold, and different results followed.
They knew only two or three things:
IThat tho treatment was not profes
sional, for no doctor would think of
treating all sorts of patients in tho samo
way. 2. That tho method wns unpro
fessional, for doctors do not conceal
their uuithodB from ono another. U.
That there was no such substunco as
bichlorido of gold.
Manifestly they could toll little about
tho whole matter until they knew what
this medicine was, and until recently
they did not know. Now, howover, they
do know. Thero aro lying on my table
aa I writo two vials, ono of which con
tains some of this mixturo put up by tho
inventor of tho gold euro, and tho other
eomo that was put up by a well known
physician. Tho two aro identical, and
the fact has been conclusively proven by
chemical analysis.
In this mixturo there is no gold.
There is not tho shadow of utracoof
gold. Neither is it a bichlorido of any
What is it? Well, it would bo a fool
ish thing for any man to publish to the
world tho exact formula of a inedl
cino that is capable of doing much
harm. Tho main iugrodicuta, howover,
may bo told properly enough. Briefly,
then, tho gold euro is composed of tho
nitrato of strychnia nnd atropine, a cer
tain proportion of caffeino, some cadeine
and a little a very llttlo cocaino.
Theso form tho bulk of tho composition.
Traces, and only traces, of other drugs
may bo found in tho mixture.
As a matter of course this statement
is likely to bo disputed. I hold myself
ready to prove it at any time.
Somo thirteen years ago Dolronrnvoff,
a Russian physician of great eminenco
and tho head of the Russian military med
ical service, was insti u;ted by his govern
ment to study the subject of drunken
ness, aa it prevailed among the officers
of tho Russian army. Dobronravoff
studied, and presently originated a treat
ment. He published it in tho medical
journals of Russia. It was republished
in Buda-Peath, Berlin, Vienna and Paris
in the leading medical journal of those
citiea These it waa copie.l into the
LoudoVLanoet, and thenco into the
M'jw York Medical Record. Since that
tiiu it'hae been included in the stand
ard xnodical books. Hero ij Dobronra

may be given at the same time.
A similar search of the book shows
that atropine given similarly (technical
detail are hardly needed just here) is
known as the standard remedy !for the
morphine habit, as the strychnine is
known as the standard remedy for alco
holism and delirium tremen. These two
drugs are the principal part of the new
secret formula. Vhnt aro their effects;
Both are deadly, or worse, unless there
exists in the patient a conditlou or a dis
ease or the traces of a drug antagonistic
to them. Atropine makes maniacs un
less there is morphine iu the system of
the patient who takes It Similar things
may be postulated about the other drugs
used in the formula.
Now the doctors unhesitatingly affirm
that theso things occur to tho people
who use these drugs. The question re
mains, What happens to the gold cure
patients? It has boeu publicly declared
that out of 70,000 patients treated, 93
per ceut., or 60,600 of them, aro perma
nently cured, while 8,600 have relapsed
owing to unusually adverse causes.
1 have, howover, lying beforo mo u
list of 125 patients who have taken this
treatment within a year and who have
been discharged from one or another of
the institutions as "cured." Of thete
196, 81 have relapsed already, and n
careful watch is being kept on the oth
ers (without their knowledge) to see how
their cases will turn out
number of metropolitan physician
are compelled to devote a large part if
their time to patients sueringMsastroai
effect from the gold cure treatment. 1
havo talked with these .toetors and with
their patients. Tho doctors declare that
tho insanity which they (lnd in some of
their patients, and which they fear in
other cases, is a direct result of tho In
troduction of ntropino into their systems
As they (tho patients) had no morphine
in them thero was nothing to counteract
tho maddening effects of the atropine
And they deploro and condemn, as do
all tho other physicians with whom I
havo talked, and they are several, the
indiscriminnto use of tho secret formula
on tationts whoso conditions aro widely
Certain patients liko Mr. Mason, of
Nebraska, extol tho treatment and Its
effects. Certain others, liko a promt
nent Now York newspaper man who
went west to bo cured of tho cigarotte
habit, and who had tho samo mixture
pumped into him, havo boon forced to
stop bocauso they feared for their rcu
son. Hull others aro now insane ami
their statements aro worthless.
If any reader shall supposo that this t
written in nny spirit of hostility to the
author of tho gold euro, or with any Idea
of belittling tho good ho may havo done
ho (tho render) is utterly- mistaken. I
havo simply sot down the facta that I
have been able to gathor from tho men
who havo been uinking a real, scientific
investigation of tho question. Thoy art
facts that must bo known to tho public
beforo an intelligent judgment can In
formed of what is unquestionably the
most astounding medical oxcltouieut of
tho age. All that I havo stated is backed
up by proof absolute, nnd it makes tin

Nkw Vohk, May 12. Tho beauty ol
woman's dress depends upon its tlaintt
ncsH and those deft little touches of rib
bon and lace, of feather and flower, ol
embroidery nnd ornament, nnd It is on
thoso trilies trifles in themselves, but
Important factors taken as u whole
that women must tloiend for their great
est attractiveness. Not ono woman or
girl over added to her attractions by
wearing a derby hat or a man's vest and
shirt. Ono may gain something of a
dashing stylo by wearing such garments,
but that can novor rcplnco tho charm of
a distinctively fcmiulno toilet
What baby would look so sweet and
altogether lovely if its delicato laco and
filmy dresses wcro replaced by a man a
dress coat? And it is nearly tho same
with a young girl, who, believing in the
perfection of her beauty, thinks slit
can dnro everything. But seo how
sweet and lovely sho looks in her filmy
ball dress of soft crepo, with tho gath
ered neck, tho looso, short sleeves with
tho bowknot at tho shoulders, and the
whito satin corselet, nud tho light, flow
ing skirt
And thero she is with her wrap on ns
she is when sho slips out with Jack or
Fred or somo ono elso to look at the stars
and hear tho dear old story that cacli
girl somehow believes has never been
told beforo. This wrap is generally put
on by tho watchful chaperon, and it is
variously mado of white or cream cash
mere, soft faillo in whito, cream or pale
blue, old rose or biscuit color, and lined
with surah or Florentine silk. Tho edges
aro finished as pleases tho wearer's f incy
best with a narrow band of feathors,
chenille fnngo, moss trimmings, or
somotimes beaded gold galloon. There
is, anyhow, a little gold galloon along
tho shoulders and heading the funnel
shaped plait in the back and down the
This wrap calls to mind one that was
made very recently for Mrs. Willie K.
Vanderbilt Hers was of cream white
Sicellienne silk, lined with gold colored
satin. There was a rich and most elab
orate gold embroidery on the yoke and
down the fronts, and tho collar was
stiff with gold embroidery. A thick,
gold cord and tassel on each side tied at
the neck in a long looped knot, and still
the heavy tassels reachod 'nearly to the
foot of the dress. The shapo was al
most exactly the samo as tho il lustra
tlon here, only the Watteau plait was
flat instead of funnel shaped. Cream
ladies' cloth, braided In gilt braid,
makes a rich wrap suitablo for opera
balls and swell receptions, and nearly
every lady cau braid ono for herself
even if sho cannot finish without the
help of a dressmaker.
Another dainty and feminine garment
ia tho tea gown, which has displaced the
wrapper entirely, it is said; but some
peoplo have a shrowd idea that whou a
tea gown has lost its first freshness it is
no longer worn to bo admired as my
lady pours her toa for her friends, but is
made to do duty in tho morning for
many days thereafter,
One just finished by a lending up town
house is of oriental striped silk with a
changeable sheen, tho prevailing colon
brown nnd green, with a golden glow
and glean, hidden away in it somowliere
which show in fitful flashes. Tho sleeve
aro "angel sleeves" nnd nro edged with
a jabot rufllo of silk gauzo with chenille
dots and scallops. Full jabots of the
same fall from neck to feet, nnd rich
goldon brown ribbou bows ami loug
ends lend tholr grace and elegance.
This tea gown Is also adapted to all the
requirements of an ordinary wrapper,
and cau be made in washable goods.

In one of the loveliest counties of old Vir

that was In days gone by the show place of
all that section. The imposing park of
mighty oaks, Kraeettil lindens ami gener
ous, low spending beeches was a fit setting
for the big house, with its whito columns
reared from basement to roof. Tho quaint
furniture and the rare crystal and princely
plate were spoken of near and far. Every
floor, every window seat and every table of
this liousu was waxed.
Kvery morning an army of nimble kneed
young fell upon these floors and
rubbed and polished until each board fair
