PARIS. Oct. 7. At "the closing of the
International Tuberculosis Convention to
day. Professor von Behring made a state
ment relative to- his new curative prlnc!-
pie for tuberculosis. Professor Behring s
statement attracted much attention. Dis
tinguished medical men from many coun

salon of the Grand Palace. The professor

animal tuberculosis during tho past four
years. This curative principle reposes upon

Professor von Behring then gave a
lengthy technical description of how "T.

ganism and said it had already given
marked results in the treatmont x)t ani
mals. He expressed the confident belief
that his researched would permit similar
curative results in humans. He added
that he was unable to say how soon posi
tive results would be obtainable, but he;
felt as certain that these results would
be attained as when he llrst announced
his discovery of .a new method of treat
It was decided to hold the next con
gress In Washington In 190S.
The American delegates were interested
listeners to the statements, later they
were asked whether the present state of
medical science hole out the hope of a
permanent cure.jof tuberculosis. Dr. Law
rence Flick, of Philadelphia, said:
The present state of medical science holds
.out a good prospect of a permanent cure for
tuberculosis when this disease is taken in
Its early stages. This, however, is not
through a specific remedy, but by proper
alienation and open-air life, with exercise
duly restricted. If tne present knowledge
concerning the means of preventing tuber
culosis was generally applied, it is safe to
say that tuberculosis would be stamped put
of civilized countries within a few years.

TRAGEDY OF DIRTY KNIFE
German Husband's Practical Lesson
to Wife in Cleanliness.
BERLIN, Oct. 7. (Special.) A trag
edy growing out of an unusual cause,
which in itself teaches a lesson to
housewives not to be slovenly In car
ing for their homes unless prepared
to meet the wrath which their neglect
Of household duties is ant tn rnue n
fastidious husbands, is now attracting
Bumv attention nere. in this instance a
dirty knife was the cause of the trag
edy, as well as the implement by which
death -was dealt out to the offender as
the punishment- the angry husband.
A glassworker, named Robert Her
zog:, complained that his wife did not
keep the house clean and frequently
took the woman to task on this account.
Her reply was that, if she were not
compelled to work all day in a fac
tory, she would have time to devote to
the neglected household duties. Fre
quent quarrels on the subject of clean
liness resulted and after one alterca
tion the wife left the husband, but re
turned after a brief absence.
On the occasion of her last visit she
sat down to sunner with hir hncton.i
and his brother. Herzog discovered that
uv mux ocen given r. dirty knife and
demanded another. The wife brought a
second knife, but it too proved to be
j dirty. Herzog threw the knife at the
I woman and the point stuck in the
I breast. Herzog quickly summoned a
doctor, hut she died shortly after. The
uubutLna was arrested.

Representatives of the Portland General
Electric Company, the Oregon Water
Power & Bailwav Comnanv and the Pa
cific States Telephone & Telegraph Com
pany said that their compalnes probably
would not resist the franchise tax.
P. V. Holman, chief legal counsel for the
Portland General Electric Company, de
clared that, bo far as ho knew, there was
no disposition on the part of his company
to fight tho assessment of 5200,000 on its
franchise. They had not filed any protest
with the Board of Equalization, and he did
not think any legal steps would be taken
in the matter.
Joseph H. Thatcher, division manager of
the Pacific States Telephone Company,
when asked if the company had protested
the assessment of $200,000 on Its franchise,
replied that it had not, although It had
filed a protest with the Board of Equaliza
tion against the personal property assess
ment. He said that all the issues Involved
by the franchise tax had been referred to
the executive board of the corporaV-on, in
San Francisco, and he could not say what
action would be taken in the matter, al
though he felt quite positive that his com
pany would set up no contest In court.
''We pay anything that is presented to
us" in the way of taxes without any kick
whatever," remarked William H. Hurl
burt, president of the Oregon Water
Power & Hallway Company, when ques
tioned upon the Bubject of the assessment
of $25,000 levied by tho County Assessor
on the corporation's1 franchise, against
which no protest had qeen filed. "We are
forced to do so, like everybody else. We
cannot help ourselves, and have no Inten

Epilepsy or Fits
By the remarkable dtsoerery oi emlaeat
specialist, this awful malady is perma
nently banished from the yatm.
FREE, A FULL U-OUNCE I0TTLE
It would amaze many people when they
read ot fatal and distressing accidents, to
know how many of these are due to Epilepsy
or Fits. Only a few week ago Phlladel-
phla papers told of the case of a young man
of that city who fell from a pier at Atlantic
City and was drowned. Spectators supposed
it to be a case of suicide, but at the Inquest
the fact was brought out that tbe victim
was subject to Epileptic Fits, and it was
undoubtedly one of these attacks that had
caused him to fall to his death. Tbe suc
cess of a dramatic performance was marred
not long ago ''because the leading lady was
seized with an epileptic fit during the play.
John Chouteau, a well-known cowboy, of
Vlnlta, L T., has probably furnished the
most tbrUUng experience on record. In the
Spring of 168(1 while on his pony, he sud
denly gave a piercing yell and fell, his feet
still In the stirrups. At once his startleg
pony started to run, but another cowboy
made a magnificent throw of his lasso,
caught the pony and saved Chouteau's lit.
The latter has been warned not to ride, as
he had suffered from epileptic attacks since
infancy, sometimes having three or four a
week. Directly after the accident a friend
Induced Chouteau to take Dr. Fred E.
Grant's cure for Epllepry. Under date of
August 2S. 1303. Chouteau writes: "I have
never had an attack since. I weighed 140
pounds when I began the treatment, now I
weigh in my shirt sleeves ISO pounds, am
stout and healthy, sleep well and eat .all I
can get." Chouteau is permanently cured.
Dr. Grant is a renowned physician ot Kan
cas City. Mo., who has made a life study ot
the causes and cures of Epilepsy 'or Fits.
The result is a remedy, a purely vegetable
compound, which he emphatically states wilt
surely and permanently -cure fits In all their
forms, no matter what their cause. To con
vince everyone of this fact, he asks every
person in the United States suffering with
Epilepsy or Fits to send their name and ad
dress to Dr. Pred E. Grant, SSL New Ridge
building, Kansas City. Mo., and receive free
a large bottle of this wonderful remedy, not
a sample bottle, but a large, full 10-oz.

Nearly everybody knows that tihar

Charcoal is a remedy that the more
you take of It the better;-it is not a
drug at all, but simply absorbs the
gases and impurities always present
In the stomach and intestines and car
ries them out of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath 'after
smoking, drinking or after eating on
ions and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and im
proves the complexion; it whitens the
teeth and further acts as a natifral and
eminently safe cathartic.
It absorbs -the injurious gases which
collect in the stomach and bowels; it
disinfects tho mouth and throat from
the poison of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal in one
form or another, but probably tho best
charcoal and tho most for the mbney
is In Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges; they
are composed of the. finest powdered
willow charcoal and other - harmless
antiseptics In tablet form, or rather In
tho form of large, pleasant-tasting
lozenges, the charcoal being mixed
The daily" use of these lozenges will

A Buffalo physician, in speaking of
the benefits of 'charcoal, says: "I ad
