COLD AIR AND PNEUMONIA
New York Physician Treats Disease
Successfully by Freeslnsr
Treating consumption with cold air has
been proved of great benefit, but the use
of exposure to cure pneumonia, Itself due
to cold, seems absurd. Thla vary treatment,
however, has proved not only efficacious,
but Infallible, so far as it has been tried
by Dr. Thomaa S. Dunn at the Fordham
hospital. New York City. Instead of hous
ing the patients In a closed , room with a
temperature of 80 degrees, aa has been
heretofore unlformty the ' practice,' Dr.
Dunn has kept thirty pneumonia patlenta
In an open tent since November 1, and
every ono has recovered where the trouble
was not complicated with other diseases.
The revolutionary method has created a
sensation among physicians.
Dr. Dunn, to whom the most credit 1
due for undertaking the risks of the new
treatment, has made a specialty of pneu
monia ever since attaining hts medical de
gree. For several years, in '-cases where
his patlenta were willing to undertake
these risks. Dr. Dunn has treated them
by the outdoor- method, and he says that
he 'has "hot lost "One case of pneumonia
without complication thus treated.' Ha has
lost oasas where the . patients refused to
have the windows opened ' in their sick
rooms, one or tne most remaraaDie cases
which Dr. Dunn has won against death
waa that of a prominent man of Ford-
ham who waa atrlcken with pleurisy and
It seemed that nothing oould save his life
when Dr. Dunn, was called" In. This was
Just two years ago and the mercury was
hanging around the aero mark. Dr. Dunn
asked the family If they were willing to
risk his methods. The family agreed and
every window In the sick loom wss opened
wide. The temperature went down to
about IS degrees. In two days the man
was out of danger and hts convalescence
was shorter than that following a slight
attack of pleurisy. Another time the same
winter Dr. Dunn had a case of pneumonia
and there waa another case, in the neigh
borhood being treated by one of the fa
mous specialists. The latter used the old
bottled-up methods. His patient died, white
while Dr. Dunn's Is well snd strong today.
Dr. Dunn was appointed last October as
visiting physician for Fbrdham ' hospital.
On his first visit he found thirteen pneu
monia cases, all mora or less serious, in
the hospital. He at once-. told. the house
surgeon of the success of his treatment.
The house surgeon, Dr. Dolan, waa skepti
cal. Finally he gave his consent to the
treatment of those patients who wera will
ing to try It A tent large enough to hold
fourteen cots was then' put up. The roof
of the tent waa shingled in such a manner
that the Icy winds could sweep In, causing
a keen blast of air to be In circulation
all the time in the upper part of the tent.
A wainscoting, Ave feet high, was built un
from the ground, rlslrtg above the -cots.
This protected the patients from any direct
currents of air. The rest of the tent wss

Prevent Soine Troops from
Going Without Cash
Intll Next Winter. .
WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 After a month
of hard work. Assistant Secretary Oliver of
the War department, concluded that he
had finally made. a satisfactory adjustment
of the many difficulties In apportioning the
appropriation of 2700,000 for pay for the
militia at the maneuvers in different camps
throughout the country, but It appears that
all la not satisfactory. These funds had
to be apportioned to the quartermaster's
department, the subsistence department
and the pay department of the army for
the purpose of quartering, feeding and
paying the atate aoldlera. Reports were
obtained from different stats governors as
to the number of troops that would be aent
to the encampment, the distance they
would travel, etc., and the apportionment
was made, on the basis of the report r
' Too Many Soldiers.
However, in some cases more state troops
than had been given In the schedules were
sent Into the can.ps and more expense was
thus attached. This csused a .deficiency
n ' the allotment' of funds," especQUly 1 In
Mia- matter of pay for . the state troops.
The pay department of the army -decided
to pay the troops as long as- the funds
lasted, those who came last going unpaid.
It has been suggested that another ad
justment may be made after the camps
have finished their work, which is that
some camps may not use all the money
allotted to them and the funds can be
used to make up the deficit elsewhere. No
attempt to make an adjustment at this
time will be made, aa nothing definite ta
known as to the number of stats troops
which will be at the different camp.
It Is possible thst congress .will be asked
to make an 'appropriation to cover the de
ficit and the ststa troops paid next winter.
Jefferson avnd the Star a.
This little story of Joseph Jefferson Is
said to be new: In the staging of one of
his earlier playa a friend accompanied htm
to a rehearsal, at which a lively disagree
ment arose between two of the actresses
as to the possession of the center of the
stage during a certain scene. While the
manager poured oil on the troubled wsters,
Mr. Jefferson sat calmly swinging his feet
from the rail of an adjoining box. The
friend could stand it no- longer. "Good
Lord. JefTerson," he cried, in an excited
aside, "this will ruin your play Why don't
you Interefere? You could settle matters
If you only would!" Mr. Jefferson shook
hts head with a gravity that completely
veiled the twinkle In his eye. "No, George,"
he replied, soberly; "the Lord made onjy
one man who could ever manage the aun
and moon, and you remember even he let
the stars alone."

St. Pierre, the Ill-fated city en the Is

burled. In a few years It will be so com
pletely hidden that it will be indistinguish
able from the green hill which on three
sides surround It.
Four years ago Mount Pelse, a volcano
which had been regarded as quiescent and

a terrific storm and volume of steam,

Early In May, 1901 - Mont Pelee showed
signs of trouble. There were ominous
rumblings, , minor seismic tremors. Then
the volcano suddenly hurled out its deadly
lava, stone and ashes. .. Some of the ashes
dropped In St. Pierre, and near the town
a. sugar refinery wss destroyed and the
workmen overwhelmed. Some few resi
dents withdrew from the town, and others
were vaguely apprehensive of danger, but
the governor said there was no need of
alarm, and the people remained.
On May t. Ascension day, a rain of
ashes was enveloping the town In almost
Impenetrable darkness .and about t o'clock

A Sublime Outburst.
"All at once there was a sublime outburst
from the mountain," he says. "Whether

hard to ssy, but a conflagration came right
out-of the .mountain . In one grand burst,
with a noise so twrible that beside It a

Picture of Desolation.
For months the barren hills, whose coat
bf gray volcanic dust was brought Into
contrast here and there by charred trunks
of Isolated trees; streets rendered Impassa
ble by debris and a deep layer of ash;
broken walls of stone, blackened occasion
ally by the fearful fiery blast, but generally
harmonising wtth the predominant gray,
gave a picture of desolation such as only
Dante's vision of the . Inferno awakens,
for months all wss quiet, save for the dis
tant rumbling of the volcano, ths father
of this havoc; not a living thing was In
sight. To a person visiting this depressing
scene it seemed that .''Omega" had been
written over St. Pierre In awful letters.
It was difficult at that time to conjure up
the scene of beauty which has trans
formed the lifeless (own.
But St. Pierre now Is a ' garden spot
Its ruins, breaking through ths leafy set

same time the spectacle is a strange on.
Some traces of street cast their vagus

tion is growing up, and In three year more
probably there will not be left a vestlgs
of this fine old West Indian city. As a
French writer recently "remarked. "Every

a visit to Martinique, almoat Impossible to
