New Cure for Diphtheria.
'The new treatment by inoculation for
-diphtheria and croup , as practiced in
France , is the subject of a special report
to the state department by United States
, 'Consul C. W. Chancellor at Havre. He
says that by this method of treatment
only one out of four of diphtheretic patients -
tients snccumbs , whereas the figure is
double for other methods of treatment
heretofore applied. Consequently the
consul , who is a Baltimore physician of
repute , says that it would seem very ,
desirablethat the anti diphtheretic serum
should be introduced and come into
-general rise at the earliest period practicable -
cable in America , where many thousand
-children , and numerous physicians , students -
d -dents and die
nurses annuallyfrom diPhtheria -
theria and croup. The consul gives in
detail the history of the development of
the treatment by Dr. Pasteur and his
1 -assistant Dr. Boux who have been experimenting -
perimenting with it for five year , keeping -
ing it secret until they had satisfied
themselves of its effcienc y , and had
: subjected the animal ( the horse ) best
-adapted to transform diphtheretic poison
' into an anti-toxine. A trial of the new
'treatment at one of the largest children's
hospitals of Paris resulted in reducing
t : the death rate from diphtheria from
5l.yoto.24.33per cent. In addition , it
is stated that children vaccinated with
the serum were protected from the disease -
ease even while living in close contact
s with diphtheretic patients. As the
Pasteur institute cannot meet the great
demand for the serum treatment , move-
inents.are on foot in different localities
to establish auxiliary institutions. In
y slight cases one injection of the serum is
' sufcient , while the ordinary cases yields
f to two.
A f A consignment of this drug upon
_ which the attention of the medical profession -
: fession the world over is centered , has
; gran' through the New York custom
house. It is a'smal ) quantity of the new
remedy for diphtheria , the anti toxine
serum. This is the first portion to reach
thiscountryfrom the laboratory of Prof.
i3ehring of Berlin , its discoverer. The
consignment came to Dr. George E.
Shrady , the editor of the Medical Record -
ord ; and Dr. Louis Fischer , also of New
i York city. The quantity received was
_ 'very small. The serum that has been
in use here previous to this importation
was from the labratory of Prof. Aronson.
It is considered the serum from Prof.
Behring is more powerful and will retain
its power for a longer time than any
brought here previously.

On Sunday afternoon , Jacob Koch and
family were on their way from near
Grant , Nebraska , to Cedar county , Mo.
Mrs. Koch was driving one team , and
with some of the children was sitting
upon an elevated seat in the front part
of the wagon. As they were going down
a hill east of town , one of the little girls ,
about three and one-half years of age ,
fell out of the wagon and was so injured
that she lived but a few minutes. The
body was taken to Mr. George's and the
neighbors united with them in doing all
they could for the afflicted family. On
Monday at xi a. m. , Rev. L N. Clover
conducted the funeral services at Mr.
George's house and at Bartley cemetery -
tery where the body was interred.-

Mr. Hill was born in Pennsylvania ,
on the 27th of October , 1827 , from which
state he moved to Jackson county , Michigan -
igan , and in the spring of 1373 came to
Red Willow county and settled on the
Driftwood with a soldier named John
Long , and has been a citizen of Red
Willow county since that time , making
an occasional visit to his friends back in
Michigan , usually driving east and returning -
turning by rail. His partner , Mr. Long ,
was 'murdered by Indians in the sand
hills near what is now Benkelman , in
April , 1875.
Although Mr. Hill had no relatives in
this part of Nebraska , . he leaves many
friends who have been drawn to him by
his sterling worth and every-day honesty -
esty , in fact to be "as honest as Jim Hill"
is high praise for integrity.
Quick consumption was the cause of
his death , which occurred at the home
of his old friends Mr. and Mrs. W. G.
Stone with whom he was visiting. His
death came quietly and unexpectedly.
Friday morning , October 26th , he arose
and dressed himself as usual , taking a
short walk and returning to the house ;
feeling slightly chilled he decided to go
back to bed until breakfast was ready.
When Mr. Stone went to speak to him
he found him in bed , completely covered
with the clothes , his hands peacefully
folded on his breast , and he was dead.
The funeral occurred on Saturday afternoon -
ternoon , at the M. E. church in this city ,
and were conducted by Rev. Forman.
A large number of his old friends followed -
lowed the remains to their last resting
place in Longview cemetery.

The Passing of Mr. Gibbs. :
The prophecy made in THE TRIBUNE ,
two weeks since , that the bribery proceedings -
ceedings instituted by ex-Court Reporter
A. D. Gibbs against Judge D. T. Welty
would signally fail , has been even more '
fully and completely verified than we
expected. It was a miserable and humiliating -
miliating fasco , + so far as Mr. Gibbs is
concerned. The complaining witness
virtually admitting in open court that
he had no case on the two points
charged , and proving himself to be viciously -
ciously vindictive , and now more an
object of pity and contempt than of
On this point the Beaver City Tribune
has the following article :
"The case of the state against Judge
D. T. Welty , which has lately received so
much attention , came to an end in the
county court , Thursday. A. D. Gibbs ,
the prosecuting witness withdrew the
complaint and the case was dismissed.
"The case came on for hearing at ten
o'clock , and was continued until two
o'clock in the afternoon. The court room
was crowded with people who had their
ears primed for some sensational testi-
mony. Judge Anderson was presiding
upon the bench , the various lawyers
were in place , Judge Welty occupied the
place at the bar where lie had seen so
many stand before him when conditions
were reversed. When all was in.readi-
ness for trial , A. D. Gibbs arose and
withdrew the complaint. He stated
that it had been developed that the
money , which it as charged in the first
count of the complaint as paid , had
been paid before Judge Welty had been
elected to office , and consequently was
not a bribe. As to the second count , it
had been developed that the oath of
office , in which the complaint charged i
that the Judge had sworn falsely , had
been taken in Lancaster county , and
consequently prosecution or impeachment -
ment proceedings must be begun in that
county. As it was evident that no conviction -
viction could be had under the evidence ,
it was thought best to withdraw the
suit. Mr. Gibbs also stated that lie
could not say at this time whether or
not proceedings would be commenced
upon the second count in Lancaster
county. It is safe to presume that they
will not be.
"And thus endeth one of the most seit-
sational suits in the history of Furnas
county. It is fair to say that the defense
emphatically denies the acceptance of
any money either before or after the
election of Judge Welty , and it is believed -
lieved by those competent to judge that
there could have been no conviction
upon this point.
"Mr. Gibbs comes in for a full share
of censure for the course lie has pursued
in the matter. His spitefulness has
carried him beyond prudence and places
him in an unfavorable light. "
Now , as to Mr. Gibbs' article in the
Indianola Courier of last week , just a few
words. Comprehensively stated in fine
the article from the opening letter to the
closing period is a bald , impossible and
imposing tissue of lies , wholly the product -
uct of Mr. Gibbs' over-wrought and
vicious imagination , and devoid of the
semblance of foundation in fact ; conceived -
ceived in spitefulness and brought forth
in his characteristic and unthinking
vindictiveness. That this malicious falsehood -
hood was desired withdrawn from publication -
lication when it was unfortunately too
1 late , makes it a matter of sincere regret
to us that Mr. Mitchell should have
given it publicity.
i The pathetic and humiliated position
in which Mr. Gibbs has voluntarily
placed himself before the people of this
district makes him only an object of
contempt and perchance of sympathy
and charity , and such considerations
deter us from giving 1115 cuticle the
dressing lie incites by his mendacious
and uncalled-for letter.
