Hammond is experimenting with the elixir of life recently discovered by Dr. Rtown-Scquard of Paris, and thus far he says the results are fully equal to the promises given out by the great Paris physician, Or. Hammond was sitting on the veranda of the line new hospital which ne has just built outside of Washington city limits, When 'the World correspondent called on Iii rn. “It is true," said the doctor, “that when Or. Brown-Sequard’s discovery was first reported to the American people by The World—tor it was Tile World that first made it known to America I was rattier dubious and in* dined more or less to think as others [ had hinted, that either the report was [a French joke or that Dr. Hrown-Sequard was ‘another good man gone wrong.’ 'i’lie first report did not give a complete idea of the treatment, it indicated, rather, that the elixir was a compound made from various animals and on that showing I was willing to say the thing was impossible. Tint when I obtained further and more ae carate details from The World itself and from the French medical journals, I was willing to believe that the rf might Lh- something in it. I was w41 ling at all events to put it to the test and about a week ago I started to experiment. Dr. Brown-^euuard uses univ selected portions of the rabbit or Guinea pig, simply because, I suppose, these are the animals upon which ex periments are usually made in tin French laboratories, but I have adopted the lamb, which I think is better. The lamb you know is an animal that is good to eat. hut we don’t eat Guinea pigs. The preparations of the medicine and the treatment of the patient are very simple. I take the generative glands of a lamb freshly killed and pound them into a pulp in a mortar; with this I mix a teaspoonful or two of water and tile result I inter through line Swiss filtering paper. The fluid, slightly thicker than water, comes through perfectly pure and limpid. The filtering must be carefully done, for if any shred or any part of the pulp were injected under a patient’s skin it would form abscesses and do harm. The extract from a single lamb will Im* sufficient for a dozen injections. It does not matter to what part of the bialy the application is made, but the most convenient place is under the skin of the forearm where the skin is comparatively slack. It would hardly Ie* safe to inject Hie fluid derived from a body twenty-four hours after the killing of tin* animal. The injection of blixai and the juice of beef into wasted patients has been common for many years, and it is w ell known that to inject the essence of decayed beef would kill the man. As soon as the lamb is slaughtered by the butcher no time is wasted in pounding and Mitering, and within an hour of the killing of the lamb the juice is circulating through the patient’s veins and mingling with his blood. I l>egan my experiments lirst on myself to assure myself that it was not dangerous to the’ patient. Since then I have applied the elixir to several old gentlemen without their knowing what it was. One man, about sixty years of age, had had his arm so nearly paralyzed with rheumatism that for nearly a year he could not raise his hand to his head. Noon after tile elixir was injected into the arm he was able to wield it iii auy direction and almost its vigorously as he had ever done. Up to the present my experiments have been made without the patient’s knowledge, hut to-morrow I am going to begin treating a man in this way at his own request. Of course, it is too early yet to draw any sweeping conclusions from the result obtained, but as far as I have gone the results are certainly remarkable. When I have continued my experiments longer I shall be able to draw conclusions with more confidence. Dr. Hrown-Sequard’s cal ciliation is that an injection once a month will suffice to keep a man twenty or thirty years younger than he really is.” A SESSION OF THE COUNCIL. presented and disposed An Ordinance Adopted--.At (.net the Printed Charter Im Received-*-Work tor the Hoard of 1‘uhlle WorkN— The rope ora Ho line ItaiMew a Unction -The Cel Iou Permitted to OhMtruct llroadwiij Ten Itaya liOnge r. I outsell met last Monday evening Aldermen Slocum and Morin being absent. Minutes of last meeting read and approved. The city attorney submitted an ordinance prohibiting defacing city property and interfering with artesian wells. The ordinance was received and passed. On motion of Alderman Wiegand the matter of the popcorn stand was referred to the mayor to collect such license as in his judgment may be proper. The clerk reported that he had received IOO copies of city charter, ami Alderman Wiegand moved that all city officials, the members of the board of public works and the local papers relive a copy free, all others to pay 5o cents a copy. The hill for fees in case of Toilet Torgerson against city was referred to the finance committee and Alderman Knatvold. The clerk gave notice that the board of public works was organized and ready for business. Bills were as follows: M Dixon, street labor ................... >l M Martell, street labor..........

It was carried, M iegand and Lowe voting against it. Mr. Knatvold moved that the parties keeping tile structure on the street be required to move it. Mr. Hanson seconded it. Knatvold and Mr. President voted aye and Messrs. Richards, Wiegand and Lowe voted against it. Mr. Richards moved that tin* structure be ordered moved in 15 days. Mr. Lowe moved to amend to make it lo days, and the motion was carried, Messrs. Wiegand and Richards voting against it. i he question caused considerable discussion, and at times it was decidedly hot. Mr. Wiegand was the principal champion of the popcorn stand, and seemed willing to go on record as favoring the erection or small houses and stands on Broadway, provided only a license could he obtained. President Hanson and Mr. Knatvold earnestly favored immediate prohibition of such stands. Messrs. Lowe and Richards compromised the matter by giving the existing stand permission to stay a certain time only. A matter which could have been ended in two minutes if all the aldermen had been free to carry out the law and enfore the rights of the public, consumed an hour, and then the council adjourned.

This week the assoc! ation has decided to put up purses amounting to $10,Oui for ten trotting and eleven running races, with hurdle and cowboy dashes added. This sum of money will ensure the attendance of the best horses in the country. The railroads have made a reduced rate of one fare for the round trip, good from Sept. nth to Sept. 10th. The national guard of the state will give the thrilling riot drill showing troops in action against a mob. Grand Army day will be devoted solely to the entertainment of old soldiers of the state. The horseshoeing contest has aroused a great degree of enthusiasm among the horse shoers of the state, everyone feeling that he has a grand chance to win the magnificent prizes offered. On Wednesday Sept. lith the great producers’ parade representing all the products of the state will take place before the grand stand. Probably one of the most novel features of the fair will he the presence of a band of genuine vaqueros or cowboys from the banks of the Rio Grande. Dressed in their picturesque costumes and mounted on their wild horses they will give thrilling exhibitions of their life on the American and Mexican plans. In all of its features and especially those relating to agriculture the State Fair of 188(J will surpass the efforts of past years, In no one particular will the fair be so markedly a success as in its live stock display, covering as it will the finest and largest herds of the Central and Western states and the famous breeding horses from France and England.

Bixby, editor of the Columbus (Neb.) Sentinel, is responsible for the following rare gem of poetic truth; Hi there you merchants who pretend to be engaged in trade, who spend two-thirds of all your time just lounging in the shade; wake up and let the people know that you are still on earth, prepared to transact business here for every cent you’re worth. A great philosopher who died some thousand years ago, and left a mighty fortune for his relatives below, declared as death approached his door, “My son Assanias. judicious advertising is the keystone to success.” These were the old man’s parting words -he died without a groan, and left his heir and only son in sadness there alone. His funeral was attended by a multitude next day, for he was liberal and just and no one went away who asked for alms and contributions for a village fair—for this man loved all men and treated everybody square. At least two thousand people shed their tears upon his tomb, and visited the place each year when roses were in bloom. They reared above his resting place a granite monument, which cost ten thousand dollars if it cost a single cent. Upon its polished surface was engraved (no more or less) “judicious advertising is the keystone to success.” His son survived him many years and nourished in his trade, and said he was indebted for every cent he made to the great principle observed by his lamented dad, lo always advertised the same if trade was good or bad; and iii the busy season his store was swarming full, because he advertised his goods when everything was dull. Since history repeats itself the business man of sense, who knows success is not attained devoid of all expense, will publish to the sinful world by every means at hand that he is here transacting business at the same old stand; and by that means will show that he is liberal and wise the thoughtful man will always trade with those who advertise—and when the winter time of life bedecks his head with snow and warns him that his stay is short in this cold world below, he, too, can say, “Indeed I’ve found it true’ you’d better guess—judicious advertising is the keystone to success.” sriNcV burrel The latest and most practical Instrument for the purpose of TESTING THE EYES.
