The stories which specially delight Mr.
Wilson arc those that reveal the real
personality of the negro, his naivete and
disinclination to admit that he doesn't
understand "big words," as, for Instance,
the story of the nichmond cab driver. A
man got in a cab at the Richmond rail
way station and said:
'Drive mo to a haberdasher's."
'Yaas, suh," said the driver, who
whipped up his horse, and drove a block;
then, leaning over to address his pas

"Yaas, suh, yaas, suh." After another

you wanter go?"
'To a haberdasher's," was the some

People Talked About
Shrinkage In llnrrlmnn ISatnte.
An Illustration of the recent shrinkage
In the market value of many securities
is offered by the estate of the late E. II.
Harrlman. According to the otflclal in
heritance tax appraisal, lately filed by
the state controller, the gross value of
the estate which Mr. Harrlman left at
the time of his death in Beptember, 190S.
was $89,688,664. According to present mar
ket quotations, the value of the estate is
about $57,000,000. a shrinkage of over $11,
000,000. The shrinkage appears even
larger when It is shown that nearly half'
the estate consisted of unlisted securities
and that those listed have fallen from
$36,000,000 to $28,000,000. or some SI per
cent upon that portion of the estate of
which the market value Is readily ascertainable.

White l'lncne nnd Its Treatment.
arcUVAUD, Neb., March M.-To the
Kdltor of Tho Bee: It Is a mistaken Idea
that Dr. Frledmann has brought out the
first successful treatment fo" tubercu
losis, for thoso who rend tho papers about
thirty years ago remember that Dr. Koch
announced to the world that he had found
the cause of tuberculosis to bo a bacillus,
which ho named "tubercle bacilli," and
that he had found a method of preparing
cultures of the bacillus, that If Injected
Into the blood ot tho patient, In some
way cured the dlsensi. It was a fact
that many cases who were given the
treatment were cured as if by magics,
while others were riot benefited by two
or threo treatments. Hence, as the treat
ment "did not euro all cases, Its popularity
soon fell to zero, and was forgotten by
all but the few bacteriologists who were
constantly looking for the cause why Dr.
Koch's treatment did not cure all the
cases when It cured some ot them.
An English physician by tho name ot
Wright announced a few years ago that
ho hod found the cause ot the tubercu
lin failure In some cases, which condl
tlon he explained to the bacteriologists,
and many scientific physicians today are
using the tuberculin treatment success
fully in nearly all cases that are not
nearly dead with the disease when they
begin tho treatment.
Nor Is this the only new treatment for
A few years a-go the bacteriologist
looked for the germ that produces tuber
culosis only in tho nputum of the patient,
but now we have learned that they will
bo found In the blood as well aB In all
excretions of the patient.
Knowing thlB.Dr. Lisle Wright, sur
geon In the United States navy, assumed
that as tubercle bacilli are always found
In blood of tuberculous patients, it might
be possible to inject Into tho blood of the
patient somo antiseptic that would de
stroy them, romovo the cause, and
thereby cure the disease. As an experi
ment In tho case, he tried mercuric
cuCclnlmlde, which ho knew to be sure
death to most disease germs and could be
injected Into the muscles hypodermlcally
and yet produce no abscess where the
remedy was injected. He selected a few
cases, gave the treatment, awaited re
huUs and was happily surprised with the
marked improvement he saw at once,
which was manifest by good appetite and
digestion, no moro night sweats, and In
some cases complete recovery in a short
time. In ono year he treated twenty
cases of secondary ulcerative tuberculosis
of tho larynx, that were cured, several
of them having suppurative discharge
from the glands of the neck. These re-
morkablo results were witnessed by Dr,
Presley M. Rlxle, retired surgeon general
of tho United States navy, and other
physicians in Washington, and the fathers
there, who aro ever on the alert for the
good of their people, built a sanitarium
at Las Animas, Colo., for the treatment
of tuberculosis that developed In the navy,
and Dr. Wright was placed In charge.
Since the opening ot the sanitarium
many have been- sent there and returned
