A German physician -writing upon the geogra])liical diHtribution of disease considers that consiim])tion is emphatically a disease of all times, all countries, and all races. It dags the steps of man wherever he may be found and claims its victims among every age and class, bnis the mortality of phtMsis iH relatively large in the large centers ^ Dopulation, showing that impure air imd bad hygwtne are as potent factors as hereditary predisposition. Among nomad tribes it 2b rare, but where such tribes settle in towns, they offer the usual number of %actims. Statistics show that it is very vinilent in many warm countries, as mach so in sunny Italy or foggy Englan(i It is rarer toward the poles and the higher Alps, the Andes, and the elevt^*ed plateaux of Mexico, approximate, though probably never quite attain to conditions of absolute immunity. The protective in-; fluence of high altitude often suffices to counteract other intiuences which favcp the disease, but everywhere the main factor in its production is over-crowding and bad hy'j:ieue. Dampness conjoined with frequent oscillations of temperature predispo.ses to the disease, and humidity of the air is less unfavorable than dainj)nes8 of soil. An American physician writing upon the intiu-ence of climate in consumptive alTec-tions, remarks that every new section, of the American continent that possessed any climatic advantiiges has had a period of favor with the climate hunters, but as civilization extends and the new regions become more populated their reputation for benefit in this class of cases vanishes. This the writer attributes to the fact that it is not climate alone, but more particularly the mode of life that has to d<j with the improve-' ment in cases of lung disease than change of abode, but as the comforts and luxuries of civilization are introduced, people are more tempted to live indoors, and the advantages of climate are lost upon them. It is also believed by many writers that the sputa of consumptives in time poisons the soil where consumptive individuals congregate. De.sirable climates in general are those which admit of or are conductive to outdoor life and exercise.— Foote's Health Monthly. Tfli^lABKETS. OmoAoo, April 5.—Wheat, stronger, at 71io.

I., comes the story that Madam Diss de Barr, the medium who has created such an excitement in New Tork, had a victim of her spiritualistic sharp-shooting in that city some three years ago. She was Mrs. C. M. Seymour, whose husband died some years ago and left her a fortune of about $100,000. The bulk of this went into the coffers of Madame de Barr. In some way, known only to herself and the gossips in the vicinity, the medium found that Mrs. Seymonr had a brother who had gone to China some years before under circumstances a little shady. Madame de Barr materialized the brother to the astonishment and delight of the sister. Together with Madame de Barr as ii^terpreter, they conversed long and lovingly. Mrs. Seymonr was told that her brother had prospered in his adopted home, and had amassed an immense sum of money. This he had bequeathed to his sister. A month or two later came the revelation that the brother had died with blessiuffs^pon the head of his beloved sister upon his lips. Therefore, Mrs. Seymour was immensely rich. It is said that the first bit of information cost Mrs. Seymour $5,000 and the notice of the alleged decease of her brother twice that sum. Mrs. Seymour's son was started to China to find his fortune, which never materialized, and, indeed, her son has never yet returned, having died of a fever in the Celestial land. Altogether, the revelations and the acquaintance of Mrs. Ssymour with the phenomenal medium cost the former about $85,000. Mrs. Seymour was ruined, came to Boston a pauper and died a heart-broken woman. REJECTED HI8 SUIT. He Shot His Lady Love and Then Took His Own Life.

Mr. Newton handed the dispatch to Officer Lituecooly. Scarcely had the policeman finished reading a description of the murderers whpu his eye fell on a young fellow who tallied as close as a photograph co one of the fugitives. The officer darted toward the stranger, who with the instinct of a criminal ran to avoid detection. He was soon nailed, however, and carted to the station house in the "Lillie." The fellow had a companion answering the description of the other criminal, but on seeing the arrest of No. 1, fied up Holman street and escaped. He had been in the railroad reading room. The Chicago officer?? were wired this afternoon of the capture. We will have to await their coming, as the man under arrest will not talk.
