Three million of persons die Annu ally of consumption. Medical re sources seem to be baffled by this Mal Ady. Or. Talbot Jones confessed in the new York i medical to urn tit that Cli mate is Tho physician s Only dependence for the cure of his consumptive patient. The article expresses the follow ing opinions 1. Kozono enjoys entire immunity from it monary consumption. 2. The popular belief that Phthisis is common in cold climates is fallacious and the idea now so prevalent that Phthisis is rare in warm climates is an untrue As dangerous. 3. The disease causes a Large pro portion of deaths on the seashore the mortality diminishing with Elevation up to a certain Point. Altitude is inimical to the develop ment of consumption owing chiefly to Tho greater purity of the atmosphere in elevated sitnation15, its Freedom from organic matter and iia Richness i Ozone. 5. Moisture arising from a Clay soil or due to evaporation is one of the most influential factors in its production. 0. Dampness from the atmosphere from whatever cause or in any Altitude predisposes to the development of the disease and is hurtful to those already attacked. 7. Dry Ness is a renal it of the Atmos phere of decided value. 8. Tho most unfavourable climate pos sible for a consumptive is one of uni form High temperature and a High Dew Point warm and 9. The effects due to change in the atmosphere Are by no Means so pernicious As Are generally supposed and on this subject present views require modification. Or. Jones commend the climate of Minnesota and think those Predis posed to consumption or Labouring under its first stages would very Likely be benefited or cured bar a residence their. Between the pleasant rolling Prairie the wooded Lake Region and the dense Pine forests of the Northern Section of the state they can choose what seems most agreeable and Best adapted to them while the dry bracing Atmos phere will enable them to live much of their time out of doors fear of taking cold.

There Washington held his levees. There mrs. Adams and Cald Well and Kuopi and other Brilliant women of the revolution displayed their charms. There Witherspoon and Jona than Edwards and George sometimes preached. There or. Mason chided Alexander Hamilton for writing the Constitution of the United slates without any god in it. There negroes were sold in the slave Mart. There criminals were harnessed to wheelbarrows and Hue beasts of Burden compelled to draw or were lashed through the Street behind carts to which they were fastened. There fortunes have borne to Coronation or burial since the Day when reckless speculators in pow dered hair and Silver shoe buckles dodged Dugau Tho governor general of his majesty Clear Down to yesterday at 3 o clock.

He took it very quietly and merely looked up at Royd who was standing near and ill have you. Out for very possibly the new Comer did not think much of the threat but his career was virtually Over at every hour of the Day and might did he have cause to repent that Hasty action and during the autumn Maneu vers of that year the Climax came. It was in this Wise on a pouring wet Day or night rather he had to visit the pickets and for some reason he had no horse was compelled to do the i funds on foot. On coming in after a tramp of some Miles thoroughly soaked and tired out he was ordered to visit yet another outlying picket six or seven Miles away. Then was his Tormentor s Opportunity he would not permit Liim to take a troop horse though he him self was Riding.
