FINDS A WAY TO
Dr. Flexner of Rockefeller Institute
Announces Successful Experiments.
Hefore the annual conference of the
sanitary olllcers of the state of Now
York Dr. Simon Flexner , director of the
Hockefoller Institute For Medical lie-
search , declared that ns the result of
many experiments with scrum ho was
able to say that epidemic spinal menin
gitis could now bo entirely controlled.
This , ho said , could be done by putting
the serum In the eerebro-splnnl mem
brane , thus getting at the scat of the
disease. Efforts to get the serum Into
the Mood of Infected persons has , he
said , failed.
Dr. Floxner In making his aunouncc-
.ment Hald :
"H has taken a large sum of money
and a long time to perfect this cure.
This Is the first time I have announced
It , as only very recently have I demon
strated to my own satisfaction that the
serum I have prepared will do what 1
claim for It. Influenza meningitis in
the child , which has caused so many
deaths and \vlilrli spreads so rapidly ,
will with tin ; application of this new
form of treatment that wo have dis
covered bo not one-tenth as dangerous
as it was before the discovery of this
new serum and method of treating
such n disease. "
The serum , explained Dr. Flexner ,
they had never been able to get Into
the blood of a patient Infected with
meningitis. All experiments were tried
to endeavor to get the serum Into the
blood HO that It could overcome the
bncllll of the disease. At last the In
jection of the scrum Into the cerebro-
splnal membrane was tried , and the
experiments proved wonderfully suc
EXPECT WAR TO BRING CHRIST
Adventists Think Downfall of Turkey
Would Mean His Return.
The recond coming of Christ and the
end of the world are presaged bj' the
war In which Turkey and Italy are en
gaged. This Is the view held by the
Seventh Day Adventists , according to
the Rev. Kit C. Russell of Tukonui
Park , I ) . C. , an exponent of that faith.
'The ' Adventists have maintained for
mnny years , " said Mr. Russell , "that
the refusal of the powers to help the
Turk , his final expulsion from Europe
nnd the scramble for his territory by
ho nations would be the signal for the
second appearance of Christ. The ba
als for the belief Is the prophecies In
the Bible. In the book of Daniel is
" 'And ho shall plant the tabernacles
of his palace between the seas nud the
glorious holy mountain , yet ho shall
como to his end , and none shall help
'The personage referred to is conceded
ed by commentators to bo none other
than the Turkish empire. And the
text shows that this power shall 'come
to his end , and none shall help him. '
Then Christ shall come and deliver
his people , 'every one that shall be
found written In the book. ' "
Mr. Russell construed the planting
of the tabernacle of the Turkish pal
ace "between the seas nud the glorious
holy mountains" to mean thnt the Ot
toman ruler would transfer his capital
to Jerusalem. He said that the Ad
veutlsts did not attempt to say Just
when these events would take place
but considered the present imbroglio a
toward their consummation.
WEIGHED THE ELEPHANT.
A Problem Which a Hindu Prince Was
Able to Solve.
There Is n siory often told In India
of Sbnjec , a Hindu prluce , who on n
certain occasion showed himself nl
most ns clever as Archimedes.
A high olllelat had made a vow thnt
he would distribute to the poor the
weight of his own elephant In silver
money. Bui the great dltlleulty that
at first presented Itself was the mode
of ascertaining what this weight real
ly was. All the learned and clever
men of the court seemed to Imve en
deavored In vain to construct a ma
chine of sutlieletit power to weigh the
At length Shajee came forward and
suggested a plan which was simple
and yet Ingenious In the highest de
gree. He caused the unwieldy aulma
to bu conducted along a stage special
ly made for the purpose by the water
side Into a flat bottomed boat. Then
having marked on the boat the heigh
to which the water reached after tin
elephant had weighed It down , the
latter wns taken out and stones sub
Rtituted hi sullU'lent quantity to holi
the boat to the same line. The stone *
were then taken to the scales , nnd
thus , to the amazement of the court
was ascertained the true weight o

RYAN RELINQUISHES CLAIM.
Washington , Nov. 7. Richard S.
Ryan , alleged author of the fnmous
"Dick-to-Dick" letler , which started
the Controller Bay Investigation dur
ing the exlra session of congress last
summer , yesterday relinquished all
claim to the fifty-six acre tract on
Controller Bay , Alaska , known as the
Canyon Creek Lane terminal tract.
Mr. Ryan is president of the Con
troller Railway and Navigation com
The claim which he relinquished lies
between the claims of J. J. Ryan and j
A. L. Schouer , which It Is conceded
were taken In the Interest of the rail
way and navigation company of
which Mr. Ryan is head.
The law requires that all claims adJoining -
Joining the water front eighty rods
shall be reserved from entry. Mr.
Ryan's claim occupied practically all j [
of the eighty rods between the sol l _
diers' additional homestead claims of |
J. J. Ryan and Scheuers. Ho con
tended that the law did not apply In
his case because his application was
only for right of way over the tract ,
not for absolute possession and that j
the expression in the law , "reserved' '
from entry , " need not prevent the I ' i
government from granting the use of
the land for railway or navigation
Secretary Fisher Intimated very I
strongly in a recent address that the |
government would not take Mr. Ryan's .
Interpretation of the law.
