Cotton Exceptionally High.
Cotton has taken the leading position of
the great staples, both as to extent of
advance and volume of speculative fans

Several grade of cotton goods have ad

divisions of tne market during preceding
weeks, makes th level of quotations much
higher. A large attendance of buyer Is
reported, stimulating activity with Jobbers
and at first hands. Cash aalea are restricted
by low supplies. Domestic consumption
supplies most of the business, as export
Inquiries are light.
Export business has Increased In New

ft) ADOPT FINSEN METHOD
Health Commissioner to Equip Emergency
Hospital with Red Shade.
THIS TO PREVENT PITTING IN SMALLPOX
Dr. Ralph Thlaka Omaha I First City
la the tnlted States to Take
Advantage of Flnsen
Patients in the Omaba emergency hospi
tal soon are to be protected absolutely
from pitting or scarring by smallpox by th
uae of one of the recent discoveries In
photography the use of light In medical
practice. Health Commissioner Ralph baa
deelded to adopt the simple method made
known to the world lo 1893 by Dr. Nlela
Flnsen of Copenhagen, wNlch constat sim
ply of barring from the alck room any
light but red light, the ahade to be regu
lated according to the virulence ot the rel
ease. 8o far aa the health commissioner kaowa,
Omaha will be the first city In the United
8tates to equip It peathouse In thla msu
ner. Aside from preventing disfigurement
the Flnsen method 1 said to have a power
ful remedial effect upon the disease, pre
venting auppuratlon, checking the course
of the ailment and lessening the duration
of sickness. If the pustule are already
well defined and discharging pus, the dark
red light toon heals them with the trace
on the face and hand which now consti
tute the chief reason to dread smallpox,
sine under modern condition It seldom
Expense Will Be Small.
The expense will be light, all that Is
necessary being a quantity of red cloth to
be hung over the doors and window and
over the lamps. Twenty-flvo dollars will
be more than enough to equip the hospital
for all the patlenta It now contains six or
even. Dr. Ralph plana to have the ar
rangements completed next week.
An article In the current number of Mr
Clure's Magaxlne, called "The Surgery of
Light" and written by Cleveland Moffett,
set Dr. Ralph to wondering why the Fln
sen method could not be Introduced Into
the local emergency hospital. It dl1 not
take him very long to conclude tbat (he
treatment could be Installed at very alight
cost, at least In a crude but generally suffi
Dr. Nells Finsotl is the individual who ha
become famous through his discovery of
the wonderful curative effect of blue or
ultra-violet rays when applied to such dis
eases as lupus, cancer, etc. The discovery
of the value ot darkness and red ray In
smallpox cases wa made In the early
atagea ot his Investigations.
Dr. Plcton'a Experience.
He stumbled across the truth one day
while reading a pamphlet published in 1832
by Dr. Plctou in New Orleans. Incidentally
it was mentioned that a number ot'soldlers
imprlaoned in a dungeon had taken cmall
pox and. had recovered quickly without
scarring or suppuration of the pustules.
Cleveland Moffett describes the progress
of the experiments: '
"No attempt was made at explanation,
but the mere fact waa sufficient for Fln
sen, who In a flash of Insight seised upon
a truth that had lain here for years, under
stood by no one. The soldiers bad recov
ered without scarring simply because, be
ing in the (dark cells, they were protected
against the irritating actinic raya, the same
bine rays that disturbed the earthworms so.
No one knew better than Flnsen how much
barm these rays can do, even to a normal
and healthy kln by eun burning,, , Ho w
much greater harm, - ha reasoned, must
these raya work If allowed to tall on an In
flamed sensitive cuticle Ilk that ot a small
pox patient. It waa, therefore, tlear to him
that such patients should be kept either
in darkness, like Dr. Ptotou's prisoners,
or, better still, for purposes ot convenience
and comfort, in red light, which Is physio
logically th ssme as darkness. Would
not patlenta thus protected from the chem
ical raya enjoy Immunity from pockmark
Ing? b asked himself."
Result of an Experiment.
The result of an experiment was a tri
umph for Flnsen and was summedup like
thla by Dr. Svendsen: "The period of sup
puration, the most dangerous and most
painful stage of smallpox, did not appear;
there waa no elevation of temperature and
no edema. The patients entered the stage
of convaleacence immediately after the
period of vaccination, which seemed a lit
tle prolonged. The hldeou scsrs were
avoided." A very little daylight was found
to work harm. In ordinary cases a clear,
red light, strong enough for the patient to
read, la all that is necessary. In bad cases
the light must- be dark red.
All this Is what It is proposed to do for
persons unfortunate enough to be taken
sick with smallpox and confined In ths
emergency hospital at Omaha.
