Paris, Oct. 7. At the closiog of
the International Tuberculosis Con
vention today,jProfesBor von Beh-
riag made a statement relative to
his new enrate principle for tuber
culosis. Professor Bahring's state
ment attracted much attention.
D:stioguished medical men from
(uony countries occupied the plat
form and filled the enlon of the
Grand Palace. The professor said:
"In the course of the last two
years l recognized with certainty
the existence of a curative princi
ple completely different from the
anti-toxin principle. This new
curative principle plays an initial
role in the operation of the immun
ity derived from my bovovaccine,
which has proved effective against
animal tuberculosis during the past
four years. Ihis curative princi
ple reposes upon the impregnation
of the living cells of the organism
with a substance originating from
tubercuse virus, which substance I
designate 'T. C ".
Professor von Bahring then gave
a lengthy technical description of
how 'T. C." was introduced into
the cellular organism and said it
had already given marked, results
in the treatment of animals. He
expressed the confident belief that
his researches would permit simil
ar curative resultB in humans. He
added that he was unable to say
how soon positive results would be
obtainable,, but he felt as certain
that these results would be attained

A warrant sworn to by the girl

girl agree to marry him.
Miss Baker, when she myster
iously disappeared on the day of
her proposed marriage, September

girl's father, also rtturnad here

Brown. "No foolishness this time,'
