"All well all happy lots
of fun". That is the regular
report from the monkey cage
of Barnum's Circus ever since
the keepers began dosing the
monkeys with Scott's Emul
sion. Consumption was carry
ing off two thirds of them
every year and the circus had
to buy new ones.
One clay a keeper accident-
broke a bottle of Scott's
Emulsion near the, monkey
cage and the monkeys orderly
lapped it up from the ilocr.
This sustcd the idea that it
might do them good. Since
then the monkeys have received
regular doses and the keepers
report very few deaths from
consumption. Of course it's
cheaper to buy Scott's Emul
sion than new monkeys and
that suits the circus men.
Consumption in monkeys
and in man is the same disease.
If you hare it or arc thrcaten-
led with it can you
take the hint?
