SEMI-WEEKLY BANDOti RECO DER, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY tk
BOTH WERE DRAMATIC.
A Story of Frederick the Great tvi
One of Hit Officers.
Frederick Uie Great bad a strong
hcnso of the dramatic. So bad a cer
tain lieutenant colonel In the Prussian
itrmy. Accordingly tbere Is plenty of
"plot" In tbe following story:
Tho oiricer, wbo bad been discharged
ot the close of tbo Seven Years' war,
Importuned the king to bo reinstated.
Weary of tho incessant solicitations of
his troublesoino visitor, Frederick at
last gavo orders that he should never

Some weeks later a most bitter libel
against his majesty appeared. Fred
erick seldom gave himself any concern
about such pasquinades, but thy pres.
cut ono exasperated him so much that
he offered a reward of 00 frledrlclis of
gold Tor the discovery of the author.
Tbo day following the disgraced
lieutenant colonel demanded and ob
tained an audience.
"Sire," he began, on being admitted,
"your majesty has Just promised 50
frledrlclis for the discovery of tbe au
thor of a recent publication. I am
tome to claim the recompense. Heboid
lir me the unfortunate llbeler My life
I forfeit freely, but remember your
royal pledge nnd, while you punish me,
send to my poor wife and children tho
rewnrd due to the Informer."
The king, although struck with the
sad extremity and self sacrifice of the
"OoTtistTinfTy Gillie fortress of Span
dau anil there await my Judgment"
"1 obey," said tbe culprit: "but the
"Within two hours your wife shall
receive It," said the king. "Take this
letter and give It to the commandant,
but bo must not open It until after din
ner." Tbe lieutenant colonel arrived at
Spandau and gave himself up ns a
prisoner. At the prescribed moment
the commandant opened the royal man
date. It ran:
To the benrer I Blvc the command of
Spnnilau. I shall lie with him In u few

the command of Herlln as a reward for

That the slovenly hablti or III health
of the cooks and waiters who serve us
In dining cars, lintels, ivstnurnnts and

with dlseaso germs from the liability
of Infecting others. In short. Or Cum
mlns declares that so long as we live
In this world of dirt and microbes out
hands can never be really clean.
To prove bis contention Or CumnilrT
dlpped the Up of his forellnger In a
liquid containing millions of typhoid
bacilli Tbe linger was next rinsed In
an antiseptic solution, then In ver.
cold water and then In water that war
almost boiling. After all this cleansing
It was washed In a small quantity ol
sterllo water, This water when ana
lyzed showed no less than HI!) colonic
t typhoid bacilli.
Not satisfied with this discouraging
proof St the futility of clean bands, the
ioctor proceeded to soak bis Infected
flngcr tip In pure alcohol Then In;
washed It again In sterile water. This
time the analysis of the water revealed
four colonies of typhoid bacilli.
Another experiment made by l'r
Cummins was to rest a typhoid laden
linger tip for Just an Instant on the
surface of a bowl of soup. The soup
was then allowed to stand for twenty
four hours. When finally nualyzed It
revealed nearly 40.000 typhoid bacilli to
every cubic luch.-New Vork Amerl
