ELIZAHETU PAINE MILBANK.
Equally as famous and pre-eminently
popular in the list of American female
composers ranks Lizzie Paine-Milbank.
Uer songs are many and meritorious,
and her most popular effusions form a
prolific source aud text for imitators.
She was Ihe pioneer of that touching
class of ballads of the "home and moth
er order. Countless have been the
plagiarisms tiud imiialious of her style,
but her "Songs Mv Mother Sum" will
outlive them all. It is sympathetically
retrospective and overflows with senti
ment of a retiued order.
I his, like other works from her pen,
possesses a peculiar individuality of
theme. Uer talent is out confined ex.
clusiyely to Ihe eulimentnl, but added
to it is a versatility which finds vent In
the higher order of song and dance
music. Lizzie Paitie M Ibauk, who is
now the wile of the well known Boston
theatrical mauager, George Milbauk, and
daughter or the late Seth Paine, Chi
cago's pioneer Journalist and philanthro

early age. Her remarkable "ear" fol
catchiug and memorizing difficult melo

one hearing, and the gift of improvising

An Interesting Theory as to the
That Produces Ttnus.
Some iuterestlnff tiolnts rpiranllnir
lockjaw were brought out bv Dr. Hn.
ry Leffniann iu the course of his lec
ture on the chemical causation of dis
ease at the Acadeinv of Natural
Sciences recently, says the Philadel
He considered lockjaw or tetanus to
be caused by the development of an
organic poison iu the system. "The
tetanus bacilli," he observed, "are lit
tle rod-like vegetable forms of great
minuteness, looking uider the micro
scope not unlike pieces of broken-up
match-sticks. This bacilllus adhere to
various objects, such as runty nail or
a rake left laying out in the air or otb-
er similar things, and when these
pierce the skin the poison is Intro
duced into the body.
"It is incomprehensible to many
people that a puncture from a rusty
nail in the foot or a little cut or scratch
in some part of the body can oause
such terrible suffering and death, but
when the bacilli are taken into the
system and get Into the warm blood
thev multiply with wonderful rapidity
ana are soon scattered through every
part of the system in great numbers.
It is a curious fact that there is some

of the tetanus bacillus and that of
strychnine upon the system, many of
the symptoms and convulsions of teta
nus being present In case of strychnine
Dr. Leffman related a fairly well au
thenticated case to prove the germ
origin of tetanus. During an earth
quake which occurred within the last
few years a number of Deoule who had
taken refuge in a couple of ohurohes
were injured by the collapse of the
building. It was found that manr of
the wounded from oue of the churches
were stricken with tetanus, while those
from the other edifice were unaffected.
A careful examination resulted In dis
closing the fact that the walls and In
terior parts, of the former church were
swarming with tetanus germs, while
the other was free from tuera. Everv
perton in the infected church who was
wounded by flying bits of plaster or
wood ran the risk of beinir stricken
with lockjaw. f
