"A call ta the 'ministry is a call to arms

DUclosarr af Medical eeret Deemed
af Great Importance ta
Publication in Philadelphia of Dr. Randle
C. Rosenberger'a discovery haa already
been made In the following description of
the technique of this new step in bacteri
ology, which is toth authentic and com
plete In every detail.
A patient auapected of having tubercu
losis germs In the blood is brought before
his physician and a tourniquet is bound
tightly about his arm in order to bring
the veins Into prominence. From any vein
of sufficient size at tha elbow the blood Is
drawn with a hyperdermic syringe, after
the skin at the spot selected has been first
sterilized chemically to insure the removal
ef every possible means or infection of
contamination from the skin itself.
About two teaapoonfuls of blood is drawn
from tha vain, pnd the needJeprick is
dressed and bandaged, there being no re
sultant pain or trouble beyond a alight
Itching for a few moments.
The fclood withdrawn Is Immediately
mixed with a sslt solution to prevent Us
clotting, and the tuba containing it is
placed on ica for twenty-four hours. Herein
lies the radical difference between the
"cuitk-atlon" or growing of the typhoid
germ fn wiiat Is known as "culture
mediums," wherein beat plays a part.
The normal salt solution In which blood
suspected of containing tuberculosis germ
is placed roost clearly conforms to the
elements of tha blood Itself and in addition
there la Introduced about 2 per cent citrate
of soda.
After twenty-four hours time the blood
has settled In the vlai. and this sediment
which has gone to the bottom of the glass
le" withdrawn, siphon-like through a hollow
tube. Being spread upon small glass slides
this blood is dried on a small atrip of metal
held firmly In place above a small, even
gaa flame. Thoroughly dry. It Is almost
indestructible except through breaking the
glass slide Itself.
This sUdes are next immersed in dis
tilled waterand llie red corpuscles are
removed by this means. The slide Is again
dried. .It Is next "stained." Immersed In
caroed fufhln. a red stain for five minutes,
the entire slide is stained red; Immersed
again for five minutes In what la known
as Pappenheim's solution, .a blue ataln.
the entire slide Is atalned blue with the
exception of the tuberculosia germ itself,
which remains red. Therein ia the entire
Rosenberger "secret."
Under the microscope these red germs
are revealed sgainst the blue field,
The scientists then knows his patient
has consumption germs in the blood.
To the medical profession the value of
this technique and the discoveries It per
mits lies in Its furnishing a means of
making n Immediate truthful diagnosis
of the presence of tuberculosis In the

ST. JOSEPH, Mo.. Feb. U-In th
hooting, which is expected to result fa
tally, of William Smith, a carpenter, here
this afternoon, there came to light one of
the strangest entanglements three per
sons ever lived under. A girl SJ year
old. who shot Smith, avers to tha police
that aha married him knowing that her
mother waa already hla legal wife. The
three have lived for years together, the
man aa the husband of both.
Tha shooting this afternoon occurred
over the Bending of a comic valentine.
The girl, who styles herself ss Mrs. Cora
Smith, while her, mother ia known by
tha name of Mrs. William Smith, sent
tha carpenter a comic valentine. Smith
grew angry when he received It and,
after packing up hla clothes, s(arted to
leave tha house. Thinking he a as going
to at sen tier, trie girl slot him.
The girls mother says aha married
Smith in 10 A year after theli mar
riage aha says she found that her hus
band had improper relatione with her
daughter. She made him marry the girl,
she says, without first securing a di
vorce. The girl and husband both besr

pany, made an excellent Impression by

Mis De Vyne makes Nellie Ramsey a

play demands that she be disappointed in
her desire for Latimer. Miss Spencer is

Peggy OMara waa made to be such a

"The Night of tha Wedding" is a vaude
ville offering somewhat out of the ordinary.
It is a one-set plsy dealing with a little
girl, her widowed father and a prospective
stepmother, and deserves commendation bc
cauae of Its successful attempt at genuine
realism, and also for being excellently
acted. Richard Duffy, who wrote It, re
fused an obvious temptation to make the
woman utterly and continuously brutal to
the little girl, although, of course, she was
far from kind and struck one blow. Miss
Dunlap and Mr. McCormack are convinc
ing in the adult roles and the child of 10
to U years rather better than tha average
of like age.
Tha headline offering of the week is Paul
Sandor's "Miniature Cirque." a novel per

Conners has come from England to this

to look over the country where he had
many a former triumph when twenty
years ago he went across the country,

Connera has a clipping In his pocket from

Conners is responsible for his being

to s rouse desire for rthletlrs, and, second,
to create class spirit." said the director.
"The outdoor athletica are the finest thing
we have to arouse clasa spirit. It glvea

of schools this vesr snd altogether have
a chance to raise the athletic standard of
th school."
A plan will be followed by the Junior

Gasoline makes the world go round. It

Sixty million 'dollars would pay for the
building and equipment of fifteen battle
ships of the Indisna type or six Dread

Sixty million dollars would pay within
f,0W.0u the yearly carfare bill of J,u00,C0
New Yorkers.
Sixty million dollars would pay the com
bined electric light and gas bills of New
York for one year.
It can be said with moderation that gaso
line as a generator of motive power haa
been the chief fsctor In the development
of tiie modern automobile. Time was when
gasoline was sunk In Innocuous desuetude
as the cleaner of the family' one pair of
white gloves or prominent as the agent
anlch assisted heavenward small boys who
investigsted it with lighted matches. These
were the days when the possibilities of the
by-product were dormant, much less look
ing forward to the time when hair and hide
teeth and nails, should become, in some
form or other, articles of commerce.
In th arly days of the petroleum In
dustry, when ther were no "pipes" or Up
lines, no attention wss paid to naphtha, the
refining of which produces gasoline. Ther
waa a big and Immediate market for illumi
nating oil, and immense quantities of naph
tha were wasted, being allowed to evapo
rate or being burned In pits. A small
amount was used for fuel under boilers, but
for Uia most part the chief anxiety wa to
get rid or it.
Gasoline todsy is procurable ail over the
world, and in civilised countries one rarely
need carry larger quantity than th sup
ply tank of the machine will hold, as the
various insnufacturers and dealers have th
supply so arranged that It is always ob
tainable. When one considers the manufacture,
handling and distribution of the 1jO.000.OiM
gallons used In the United States alone, and
thst it is possible to obtain a supply of sat
isfactory quality not only In the cities, but
In tha country districts, hs appreciates what

Th correct complexion Is pearlike with
out a trace of color except save that in
th indeacrlbable pallor of the perl. Th
perl gets Its tone by reflection snd th
complexion ef th girl who Is going to be
cUed a winter beauty must et Its tint
by suggestion.
"Th fashionable skin," says she. "must
be without any decided tone. It must h
creamy like th pearl, but there must nisi
b that peculiar clarity cf the pearl which
is so deep and cler that it actuslly re

'I give my pupils practical Instructions
in the making of such cleansing applica-
tiot s as the skin needs. One of my best
lotions Is called the pearl cream, which I
make myself and which I teach them to
n ske for themselves.
"I send out to ths meat market for soma

have it chopped Into bits snd I try It out
upon the stove. I us a gas burner, but
one could use an alcohol lamp. One of my
lupUs makes her's In her. bote.: room upon
an electric siove. I
The fat whet, tried out will be liquid,
ar.d In this condition I strain it. 1 now
add a drop of perfume. Altar of rose is
my preference, though one can use Ja
mine, geranium or any scent one pleases.
A drop of oil of geranium is very good.
"Now comes the beating up of the
cream, which takes patience. 1 tell m
pupils to begin with tablespoon cf the
liquid fat and to add half a teaspoon of
glycerine to It, beating It slowly and adding
the glycerine drop by drop. In a few
minutes ther will be a lovely white creat.i
which acts like msglc upon tired skin.
"There i those who cannot me gly

can be used a little almond oil. Thia is
very healing and almost as whitening.
"We advise the automobile woman to
give her skin the chamois treatment, which
is new with this season. The skin is
warmed with hot towel ,.nd is then cov

used if more convenient, or even ccoa
butter, or any good cleansing skin food.

"To prepare a chamois for the rubbing
of th face take a strip about eight Inches
wide and eighteen Inches leng. Wet it
well with warm water. Wring it out, and
while it is still moist rub soap into it,
using th best of toilet soap. Rub tht
whole chanvol well with the soap until it
Is lathery. Then hang it up to dry. It
will be soft and fin and ready for use
upon the skin..
"Th way to polish th face with a
chamois skin closely resembles the process
of polishing the toe of one's boot. You
take the chamois by Its ends and you see
saw across th face, using as much fore 4
as possible.
"By this vigorous exercise you take cfl
the superfluous cuticle and you make the
skin fine, clean and soft. We have never
found anything to equal the luater given

cleanse the skin.
