Tho presidential train loft Washing

ladies of their families, and proceed to
Omaha, in accordanco with tho printed
programmo, but when sho left Wash

intention of remaining at Canton.
Secretary Algor has gono to Omaha,
and ho loft Washington in an oxcollont
humor. Whatever may havo been his
expectations of tho ovidonco that would
bo Riven boforo tho Commission that is
investigating tho war, ho could not
havo oxpected anything more compli
mentary on tho wholo to tho War Do

'examined have said. There isn't tho
slightost doubt that tho general public
has boon groatly surprisod by tho ovi
donco. It was expected that somo mis
management would bo shown by tho
testimony of almost ovory wltnebs, but
such has not boon tho caso, and tho
witnesses havo included men, who cer
tainly should have known of thu oxin
tenco of anything that wm vury bud
such men as Gens. Loo, Whoolor,Iloyn

had boon adopted in timo of peace, not
boing adapted to tho exigoncies of war.
Tho difficulties in.tbo way of securing
any mutually satisfactory tariff arrang
mont reciprocity between tho U. S.nnd
Canada, havo been strikingly brought
to tho front, wbilo tho joint commis
sion, which has been sitting in Canada,
and which after a short recess, will re
assemble at Washington, Nov. 1, has
boon dealing with tho subject. First it
was tho lumbor mon who wero alarmed
at tho favors that woro being asked of
tho Commission by Canada, and now it
is tho coal mon who havo bocomo
frightened and called upon their Con
gressional friends to savo thorn from
Canadian frco coal. Chairman Dtngloy
and Roprc8cntativn Grosvenor, of Ohio
who represents a coal mining district,
havo had their beads togothor, devis
ing means to impress upon tho minds
of tho U. S. Commissioners that Cana
dian coal must not bo admitted free,
no mattor what is offered as an offset.
It is just as well to bear in mind that
tho work of tho joint Commission will
not bind this country until it has been
approved by tho president and ratiUed
by a two-thirds voto of tho Senate

been given to'Washington slnco tho as
sembling of tho trionnial gonoral Con
vention of tho P. . Church in America
last week, bocauso of tho largo number
of Bishops in attendance upon tho Convention.
That "truth is stranger than fiction"
may bo, but politics is strangor than
either. Tho talk of somo politicians
around Washington in Now York, is
tho latest proof of this assortion. For
instance, it is asserted by somo repub
licans that thoro is a largo element in
thoir party who deslro Col. Roosovoltto
bo defeated for Governor, bocauso, if
be wins, ho might bo a troublesomo
candidate for tho Presidential nomina
tion in 1000, and it is as equally as
strongly assorted by democrats that
their party in tho South and West want
Roosovolt to win, becauso, if Van Wyck
wins, tho Now York delegation to tho
next democratic National Convention
would suppose themselves to havo pres
tige enough to keep the silver issue out
of tho platform, just as it has boon kept
out of tho Now York State platform,
and to insist upon tho nomination of an
anti-silver man for President.

AntiToxin The New Remedy for
Cholera and How It is Secured.
Mr. V. O. Barber, assistant to Dr. A.
T. Peters of tho U. S. oxperlmont sta
tion of tho StHto University spent Wed
nesday and Thursday in and about Red
Cloud iiivestlgat'ug tho outbreak of hog
cholera, and making somo experiments
with tho antitoxin treatment. Tho Do
parlmeiit of Annual Dlsoascs unJortho
able directorship of Dr.Petershas boon
working along this lino for the past
three years with very gratifying results.
Thu antitoxin usod is takou from a
liorsu that has been urtlliclally inimun
l7.ed against hog cholera.
lhu various Hteps in thu nianufncturo
ot this material urn as follows:
A drop ol blood containing thu
germs ot hog cholera is Introduced
into a llask containing sterilized beef
broth. Tho llask is then placed in an
incubator at body turn peraturo, and in
a fow hours thu germs begin to propa
gate, aud become so numerous as to
give a cloudy appoarauco to thu broth.
Tho virus tints obtained is what is used
in inoculating tho horso. Tho viruses
injoctod hypodormically in small doses
at first, which aro gradually increased.
Tho effect upon tho horso is an acceler
ated pulso, high ton) peraturo and in
creased rcspiratiou, toguthor with u
gonorally deprossod feeling. Thoso
symptoms appear after oach inj to lion,
tho horso boing allowed to recover per
fect health boforo tho doso is repeated.
After a certain timo, generally about
six months, tho animal is capable of re
ceiving an indolluito amount it this vir
us without evincing any of tho above
symptoms. (Io is then pronounced
"immuno" or "proof" against hog chol
era and is ready for uso.
Four quarts of blood aro taken from
tho jugular vein ovory month. Tho
horso scorns to show no ill effects from
this latter trcatmont, but on tho con.
trary is brighter and livelier tho noxt
day. Tho blood is collected in bottlos
devised for that purpose and placed iu
a refrigerator, whero it is allowed to
clot. Tho serum or water of tho blood
containing tho whito blood corpuscles,
rises to tho top and is siphoncd.off into
flasks. This serum Is tho so called "an
titoxin," used in tho trcatmont of hog
l'bo serum, is injoctod beneath tho
skin on tho insido of tho thigh. This
placo is choson bocauso of tho softness
of tho skin ajid convenience whon the
hog is thrown. Tho doso for nn ordin
ary sized hog is ton cnblo contimetors.
This may bo varied according to tho
sizo and dovelopemont of tho animal to
On account of tho difficulty en
countered, in collecting thoroportof tho
experiments mado tho data is not all at
hand so that it is at prosont impossible
to state tho oxact porcontof tho treated
hogs that havo boon leaved; snffico to
say that tho death rato has boon reduc
ed by a very largo percent. Dr. Potors
has found in tho throo years work that
tho best results are obtained whon tho
trcatmont is usod in frosh outbreaks.
Thu antitoxin treatment has boon
used for somo fow years in dlpthoria
with undoubted success, as shown by
statistics collected both in this country
and abroad. Other diseases of tho hu
man family aro receiving like treat
ment and much may bo oxpected of it
in tho future,
Tho theory of tho treatment may bo
summod up somowhat in tho following
words: An animal'having onco had tho
hog cholera possesses what is tormod
an "acquired Immunity," that Is, tho
immunity is acqulrod from having lived
through tho diseaso. Now it is an ack
nowledged fact that hog cholora is a
blood didoaeu, and that tho dolotorlotis
effects aro produced by tho action upon
tho blood, of tho poison eliminated by
tho hog cholera gorm,
If tho animal is capabloof withstand
ing tho diseaso aftoi hoisonceattaoked
ho is "proof" against all further at
tacks. After much careful investiga
tion and many years of oloso observa
tion it has been discovered that this
proporty of immunity lies in tho whito
blood corpuscles, which In an immuno
animal have the absolute power of
counteracting tho cll'uots of the uvtux
entering tho system through thu usual
modes of infection. Slnco tho antitox
in contains tho white blood corpuscles
from nil immuno animal, it is oviduntly
probable Hint these "immuno corpus
den" when injected Into another hog
will Impart to his blood tho saino pro
porty and rondor him immuno for a
certain length of timo. Tho practical
application of tills shows tho theory to
ho correct and time alone will toll how
long an immunity can bo produced and
what percent of sick and woll hogs can
