of animal matter. It may, therefore, Le

Investigations on this subject were made by
the learned Daninh physician who presided
so ably at the eighth international medical
congress in ISS-l Dr. l'auuni, of Copenhagen.
I'anum found that putrid blood, even after
being boiled and after being treated with
chemical reagents, which would destroy all
germs, retained its poisonous properties. He
boiled this poisonous substance for eleven
hour and found that it still retained all its
virulence. From this be rightly concluded
that tbo poisonous substance was a non-voLv
tilo chemical compound. He did not succeed
in isolating it, and it has always been referred
to as Iuiiudu putrid poison. Pan urn's work
was published in Danish, and did not attract
much attention for some years.
la ISKii liergmann obtained from putrid
yeast a highly poisonous crystalline substance
to which he gave the name Sepsine. In the
following year Zeulzer and Sonnenschein ob
tained a substance which resembles atropia iu
its physiological action, and in a medico
legal investigation Rorsch and Fassbeader
discovered an amorphous Ixxly which gave
reactions similar to those of digitaline.
Dfiico Jones uud Durpre about this time also
obtained from the liver a substance which,
when dissolved in dilute sulphurio acii, gave
luo (luoreKeiice of sulphate of quinine, and
w hich wan called by them animal chiuoidiue.
From putrid meat Professor Brieger incpurod
a sub.-.tuwe, neuridine, which acted as a
iioison as long as it was contaminated with
other products of nutrefactiou; otherwise
linrmlt-sa. It L closely related to two sub
stances that occur in tho human system in its
normal coiuliiiou, namely, ueurine, ouo of
the constituents of the brain; and choline,
which U present iu the bile. By putrefac
tion, - neuridine and the rather harmless
choline, are transformed into the highly
loUmou3 ueurine. It ik a remarkable fact
that ueurine, which is indcutical with mus
carine, tho poisonous principle of a toad
stool, ami which is a normal constituent of
tho Luiiuid lody, should prove so destructive
v hen introduced into the body from un out
tido source.
The fact that tho poisons of putrefaction
11 ro of a chemical nature accounts for the
jioisons found in corpse. These poisons bear
fcoino reseiiibluuco to the alkaloids of the
hemlock, strychnine, reratriue, etc. A gen
eral wiu sup)csed to have been poisoned by
his servant, in Ilome, and a poison was found
jn his bod3', bearing a great resemblance to
n virulent poisou fouud in tho larkspur. Dut
this evidence of murder was overcome by the
j-uceess of the lato distinguished professor f
legal medicine in the university. Professor
fcklmi, of Bologna, in obtaining tho same
poison from a corpso where every suspicion
t poisoning was excluded.
in 1S70, Selmi began a series of investiga
tions concerning ptomaines, which was only
interrupted by his death. Selmi obtained
from putrid Uesu extracts which gave re
actions similar to thoso of morphine. Etry ch
ili no and delphiniuo. Dut bo did not succeed
in isolating completely any ptomaine.
Kencki, in 1670, first succeeded la determin
ing the composition of a ptomaine. This
kjbstauce was obtained from putrid gelatine.
The poisons like those found In corpses,
called ptomaines by chemists, are created by
the putrefaction of fish, white of egg, meat,
cheese, gelatine and yeast. The presence of
moisture is an essential condition, hence- the
moist mixture of sausage filling is especially
well adapted to the formation of these
poisons. It Is a matter of observation that
a great many cases of poisoning have fol
lowed the consumption of sausage or of fish
that have been kept damp. The action of
tho ptomaines is more virulent when they are
introduced into tho circulation through
wounds, than when they are in the stomach.
Hence, it is that cuts received while di
secting corpses often end in death.
People are not equally sensitive to these
poisons. Some persons are so sensitive that
fish seemingly fresh will cause them incon
venience. Others are likely to suffer from a
iculiar .eruption of the skin after eating
crabs or lobsters. In the maize porridge, I
which is called "polenta," and which is the
chief food of a certain class of Italian work
men, there is formed by putrefaction in hot
weather a poison which causes "pellagra,"
an eruption of the skin resembling erysipelas,
which grows worse In time and finally causes
In every day life the ptomaines give evi
dence of their presence. The frequent in
flammations of the fingers of persons engaged
in washing dishes are due to this cause. The
beat remedies for the evil is washing with
soap, which acts as a mild disinfectant.
All food, whether vegetable or animal,
must be regarded with suspicion as soon as
the first signs of decomposition become
noticeable). Especially should great care be
taken in times of epidemics. The poisons of
putrefaction are odorless compounds, and it
must not always bo inferred that they do not
xlst before tbo odor of putrefaction is per-
'ved. These poisons are not destroyed by

... little rosy cheeked maiden one bright
rnoon not long ago was driving a flock
of geese before ber with a long slender
switch. Her disorderly tresses blowing in
the fresh breeze that came up from the shore
looked like a mass of golden flax, waving and
.glistening in the warm August sunlight. The
geese themselves were rather a dejected and
mournful looking lot. At least they were not
of the class tliat an artist would choose with
which to produce an effect of light and shade
on canvas; though, to be sure, they were ri-
diculouUr picturesque as they ran to and
fro, quarreling incessantly. The little girl
proved herself a most attentive guardian to
such an uninviting company. Bhe hurried
here and there among ber refractory charges
with a never tiring pace; driving reluctant
ones from occasional puddles beside the path
way, in which they were disposed to linger,
and restricting thoso who now and then
stopped to settle certain disputes that arose
between them from fighting it out. She told
me that the geese belonged to ber papa all
except one. And that one, which she proudly
pointed out, but which 1 was unablo to dis
tinguish from the rest, although I said that I
could, she declared with a lisp really be
longed to ber. I had been out for a tramp
all day and, indifferent as to where my steps
led me, as long as they were away from tho
boated flagstones and brick and mortar of
the city, 1 accompanied my little gooso girl
in the direction of ber homo, whilo I listened
to ber innocent chatter about her flock.
She held ber switch toward a dilapidated
shanty that stood almost at the top of tho
bill, and which, at least, jos.sesed some in
terest, if for no other reason than that it was
tho most woeful looking rookery that one's
imagination might picture. It was con
structed of old, roughly planed boards green
with ago and covered iu places with patches
of lichen. Its roof was an uneven mass of
black tar paper, so jwpulur with the inhabi
tants of Shantytown, while against tho sides
of the building was piled an amazing quan
tity of old iron and other refuse. A goat was
wandering about aimlessly outside, and as I
approacded, two dirty faced children, in
short frocks, who wero eating bread and but
ter, came up to where 1 stood, in order that
they might wipe their greasy bands ou my
coat sleeve.
From their mother, who was kind enough
to call them back, I learned that the geese,
which now gathered themselves together
within a fenced inclosure behind the house,
were raised altogether for the market, and
that the returns were of great assistance in
maintaining the littlo family. Many of their
neighbors kept flocks of these fowls, too, for
tho vicinity seemed to be a most favorable
breeding place. There are certainly many
ways of adding to one's income, and in tbo
suburbs goose farming does not appear to be
the least insignificant of them. John Preston

Something About the Stills Cure.
Talking about the milk cure, it has caused
a decided boom in tho dairy trado, and we
can scarcely supply our custom, as it was
already sufficiently large, 51 ilk is the de
mand of the hour, the greatest call being
among the physicians, their families ana
patients. One prominent medical man al
ways orders five gallons a day, two-fifths of
which is consumed by himself. He does not
take so much now, because be unfortunately
is a victim of the cocaine habit. The deadly
drug is slowly killing him, and be is gradu
ally abandoning bis practice, which was an
immense one. One pf bis favorite methods
of cure for bjs nervous patients is to order
them to be quiet for several months and to
take milk as their only nourishment, and in
large quantities. I know one lady who was
considered a victim of cancer, who was un
able to retain anything except milk for 6ix
months. Yet she eventually recovered.
However, in cases of dyspepsia, milk ought
to be tabooed, and such people should confine
themselves exclusively to buttermilk, which
has already gone through a process of diges
tion before it enters the stomach. Butter
milk is a cure in itself for disorders arising
from indigestion.
But the way sweet milk is used now in all
drinks, In the saloons and drug stores, in
"milk shakes, eta, is surprising. However,
its most unique demand is as an article of the
toilet, which use is constantly growing.
WTiy, I have twelve regular orders, four of
them on Lindell avenue, from ladies, for
eight gallons of milk daily. In this the mis
tress of the bouse takes ber evening bath.
She considers this equal to the champagne
bath, so celebrated among r aruuan ioqies,
only the milk baths are much less expensive,
skimmed milk being considered sufficient.
and eight gallons amounting to only 80 cents
a day. I suppose tho idea is an offspring d
the popular craze for modernizing the an
tique, and Poppro, the beautiful wife of Hero,
who daily bathed in milk for the benefit of
ber complexion, is perhaps the exajnple,

A Conplo of Clever Tricks.
A healthy looking mail horrified our peo-
plo a year ago by munching glass apparently
as tho average American eats peanuts. He
did not eat glass, however; bo swallowed a
skillfully prepared composition tint resem
bled glass, but bis punishment is recorded
nevertheless. Tho class eater is under the
physicians' care. The exposure of tho trick
will lessen the consumption of the diet that
has brought a trickster to grief and a gruel
diet. This imposture is not as bad as Annio
Brown's imposition. About eighteen years!
ago a woman living in Wayne county, N. Y..
named Annie Brown, puzzled the doctors.
She professed to be the victim of a snake.
Tho 6nako owned ber. It was seen in ber
mouth, but when the doctors tried to get it
it returned to ber stomach. Annie made
some money exhibiting the bead of the
snake, until she was taken to the infirmary,
and thero one day a shrewd physician sud
denly choked ber and compelled ber to dis
gorge tbo snake, which proved to bo a large
pieco of black India rubber that she slipped
down ber throat, and then, with her convul
sive movements, raised up and down. Of
the two, Annio Brown's is much the cleverest
trick. The managers of museums might

A Suggestion to Consumptives.
It is astonishing how little thought invalids
and their friends bestow on some questions
in which they are vitally interested. For
instance, it is an every day occurrence for
people who either suffer with or are threat
ened by pulmonary diseases to leave for Colo
rado, by order of physicians. But very few
of them inquire why tho climate of Colorado
is expected to benefit them. The fact is that
except in the early stages of lung disease it
is a problem which puzzles even good physi
cians, whether that climate will do good or
harm. Denver is more than 5,000 feet above
tho sea leveL That is to say, St. Louis, be
ing about 700 feet above the sea, Denver is
nearly a mile higher then we are hei, The
result is that the atmosphere is far more
rare, and the theory upon which residence
there is supposed to benefit weak lungs is
that the extra exertion necessary to inhale
the proper amount of the vitalizing element
gives fuller and freer play to all parts-of the
lungs, and preserves them from deca
But so great a change in altitude as that
from St. Louis to Denver, if made suddenly,
may be too severe a strain upon a nature
weakened by disease, and the change has
of ten proved fatal When symptoms of con
sumption appear and medical advice is
sought, if the patient has means, he is nearly
always advised either to go west, for the
reasons I bave indicated, or to go south
this on a different theory altogether. I have
often thought, however, that when the Colo
rado trip is recommended, the advice should,
bo coupled with a provision that the change
bo made by easy stages, rests being made at
least three times on the road, to enable the
lungs to become gradually accustomed to the
changed conditions. Charles J. Osbprna in

We arraign the present democratic adminis
tration for its weak and unpatriotic treatment
of the fishejios question, and its pusillanimous
suireiiderof all privileges to which our fishery
wsseNare en filled in Canadian ports under
the treaty of 18J8, the reciprocate marin
tine lei lslaitoii of 130 and comity of nations,
and which Canadian fishing vessels receive in
the ports of ihe United States. We condemn
tho i olioy of the present administration and
ine democratic majority io congress towards
our fisheries as unfriendly and eonspiciously
unpatriotic and as tending to destrov a valuable
national Industry and au ludispensible resource
of defense against foreign enemy.

civil service. We will rot fail to keep ur
