The latest triumph of scientific re
search is the new treatment for the
cure of diphtheria, discovered by
Professor Behring, of the university
of Halle, Prussia. This discovery
was based upon another by Profes
sor Loftier, a' disciple of Koch, of the
bacillus that produces diphtheria.
The investigation that followed dis
closes the important fact that not
only the bacilli themselves were ca
pable of producing diseases, but that
the same effect could be secured by
the use of the liquid in which they
had been cultivated, even if it did
not contain a single animalcule. Pro
fessor Behring therefore decided to
leave the bacilli alone, and to para
lyze their action by adding qualities
to the blood which would render
He began his experiments on the
guinea pig. He injected small quan
tities of the virus at first, graduallj’
increasing the d 5ses, until he was
able to inject enough bacteria to kill
several uninoculated animals into a
pig that had been experimented up
on, with no injurious effect. He thus
discovered that the antidote was in
the blood of the animal which had
been inoculated. The “clot” is re
moved by careful filtration, and the
serum or thin whiteish portion of
of the blood, is injected under the
skin of the patient,
Experiments upon diphtheria pa
tients were gratifyingly successful.
In one Berlin hospital, out of seven
ty-eight patients who during the
first forty-eight hours of their illness
were inoculated with it, all recovered
except two. Treatment by the old
method had been previously applied
in seventy-two cases, twenty-five of
which ended fatally. In two other
hospitals of the same city eighty-
nine patients were treated by the
new cure, and though seven of these
were suffering from the most malig
nant diphtheria known, and beyond
all hope of cure, only twelve died.
In all the other cases the application
of the serum was followed by a no
table falling off of the temperature
and a perfectly normal pulse. When
the patient was treated without loss
of time, one day sufficed to remove
all the remaining symptoms of the
malady. The serum is found to be
perfectly innocuous, its only disa
greeable effect being a rash or efflor-
vescence of the skin, like the prick
of the needle, and which is generally
produced by a transfusion of blood.
At present the blood of horses is
used for the production of serum.
After they have been sufficiently in
oculated, their blood is drawn to the
amount of about two pounds. Serurn
taken from the blood of horses is
found to be clearer and purer than
any other. Professor Behring says
serum injections are equally effectual
for the cure of lockjaw, and he be-,
lieves that in time it will become a
successful remedy for typhus, chole
ra, and perhaps even pulmonary dis
eases. The healing art is making
tremendous strides, and many of the
diseases that have for so long been
scourges to humanity are now large
ly curable by newly-discovered meth

We have not heard of any con
tracts being signed by the beet farm
ers in this valley at $4.00 per ton,
the price proposed by Spreckles for
next year, says the Salinas Index.
At $4 50 per ton last year very few
beet growers in this valley made any
money. Hence, the proposed reduc
tion to $4.00 will deter many if not
most of them from growing beets the
coming season. We have yet to hear
a farmer say that any money can be
made, one year with another, in this
valley growing beets at $4.50 with
the 5-pound limit nominated in the
contract. The annoyance of waiting
for cars, dockage for dirt, and a
thousand and one other hard condi
tions imposed by the contract have
disgusted most of the growers of
sugar beets in the Salinas valley.—
