cbor modestly , "as yet , hovever , wo nro far
from our ultimate ( joal-so much so In fact ,
that \vo should not have made our experi

The German profcs .orlt will bo remembered ,

Mr ICoeh stated 1 chad been experimenting
fora year past. Wo began our expcrlmcuts

"Two hundred days in the life of a rabbit
would represent years in thaesistcnroof a

with analogies ; wo n ant facts , scientifically
demonstrated bejond all possibility of con-

the precaution of injecting the max

Into the veins of the cuwhen it is certain teat

the value of ouv treatment in so far ill rab
bits are concerned. Wo shall shoxtly experi
ment with monkeys , and If this test succeeds
vo shall bo Justliledln experimenting upon
human beings.
"Our experiments have jet another object ,
that of determining whether vaccination can
boused ixa a preventive apainst tuberculosis ,
In other words , by vaccination wo can render
an object refractory to disease ; that this can
be done vo have also proved itiicspectto
rabbits. Thus , you see , wo have at least ad-
xanccct a htago towards both the prevention
and cuio of tuberculosis. With reference to
Prof. ICoch's experiments , " continual Dr ,

although quitoa young man , speaks with tlio
restx-alnt and niodciatioa of a gray-headed
savant "I inaj say thatlt is my opinion that
his experiments hnvo not been undo en the
same lines ns ours. In fact , his test , having
been ni.xdo with guinea pigs , prove this pretty
conclusively ; and so much the better , for
there Is never too much of n good thiiif , and
two cures for consumption are bettci than
one. "
