For Consumption Is Being Tried
in a New York Public Park.
New York Cor. Washington Star.
Up in Morningside Park in
Harlem by permission of the city
there lias been a camp of about a
dozen male consumptives since Oc-
tober 15. The- are taking the new
open-air cure for the disease. Each
man has a shelter tent and there
is a big A-tent used as a kitchen.
The men take turns doing the cook-
ing for the camp and a sort of vol-
untary military discipline is main-
tained the most robust man of the
lot--and the term is rather pitiable
at that having been chosen to boss
the outfit when the camp was es-
tablished. The men are visited every day by
the physician in charge of- them is
positive that the open-air scheme
is the only way of curing pulmon-
ary diseases. The men are very
warmly clad in several suits of
heavy underwear but they are not
permitted to have any sort of a fire
in or around their shelter tents and
the' are required to keep on the
move as much as possible during
the- hours of the da'. At night thoy
sleep in their shelter tents under
heavy bedding but iheir heads are
exposed to tle cold air of course.
The. medical man having them in
charge maintains that the more
frigid air they breathe while thus
comfortablv wrapped up in their
bedding the better arc their chances
of boiiig cured. Other features of
the open-air cure arc a diet consist-
ing very hirsely t raw eggs un-
limited quantities of pure milk
and a certain emulsion of mixed
fats which ha attained a big vogue
over here even anoii: persons who
are only in :i run-down physical
condition The treatment to which
these consumptives in Morningside
Park are subjecting themselves
looks pretty heroic and it sounds
oven more so when it is doscriled
in p'int. but it should be said that
every one of ilie men has improved
and gained in weight and appetite
and ienoral condition since the
beginning of the treatment. They
are going to slick to it all through
the winter and their medical man
a ph sician of. high reputation is
willing to stake his reputation that
iikM of them will not onl- survive
but le cured ly the time the cro-
cuses leirin to pop.
PLANTED TREE FOR

Richmond Va. Dec. 27. R. D.
Whitlow the olde.-t man in Floyd
county and the oldest Mason in
Virginia died Christmas morninir.
aged '.'' years ten month- and four
days. He wa made a Master Ma-
son over fifty years ago. and never
missed a meeting of his lodge and
his last request was that he be Lur-
ie 1 w ith Masonic rite
He was a very active man up to
a short time before dealh. From a
locust tree planted many years ago
by his own hands he had the boards
prepared to make his coffin and r.-

requests were carefully followed
INTO THE EARTH
Abandoned Mine at Olyphant Pa.
Caves In and Engulfs Hotel
and Three Dwellings.
Scranton Pa. Jan. 2. Abandon-
ed workings of the Eddy Creek col-
liery of the Delaware & Hudson
Company beneath the very heart
of the town of Olyphant caved in
this afternoon and engulfed four
frame buildings covering an ag-
greato ground space of G000 square
The settling was gradual and the
people in the affected territory es-
caped without being immediately
endangered. A gang of men and
boys who were at work in the mine
beyond the fall encountered a flood
depression in a vein in making their
way out by a circuitous route and
had to swim across. No one was in-
jured. In a half hour O'Brien's three
store hotel Mrs. Ann Evans' double
store dwelling Mrs. Jane Ackerly's
double store building and a one
story barber shop wore ground to
debris in the yawning pit with the
uppermost part of the mound forty
feet below thej surface. O'Brien's
hotel which plunged first into the
opening entirely disappeared
few houses are projecting o-v
edge of the pit. Two sick quests
were rescued from the hotel.
The vein that caved in is 11: feet
below the surface. The settling start-
ed in the street just in front of the
hotel property. The brick pavement
w as seen to be working and the tele-
graph poles and trees along tl 'M i r'n
were noticed to be wobbling. The
cause was apparent and the alarm
Twenty minutes after the dis-
turbance was first noticed theopen-
ing had widened until it reached
across the street and half way
beneath thehoie! Then with a era.-h
the building pitched forward turn-
ed over and landed on its roof in
the bottom of the abyss. The other
house followed. The property dam-
age is estimated at $30000. The
surface ceased to crack ninety feet
from the river bank. Had it reached
the river the mine would have been
BUCOLIC PING PONG.
A southern Kansas farmer is the
inventor of a new game called
"improved ping pong." It is to be
p!.ie l on a farm in the fall of the
ye.:r. The player gets up at 1
o'clock in the morning milks the
cow- f'ds the hogs and horses eats
hi -:ak fast then hitches a team to a
wagon about the size of a boxcar
and starts for the corn field. Here
is wlv;.- jftij pong comes in. You
grab a bi' ear of (
rn in the left
hand with the right hand and a
contraption of some kind you yank
the chuck off tlie corn and thro-
the ear at the wagon. When tin
ear of corn strikes the throw boar '.
it co"- j.inj" and when it hit- tl
iHU'.;n of the wagon it so...e!-
"pong" making a very interesting
game at about 2$ cents a bushel.
It is safe to predict that like many
other Kansas ideas the gamewiil

LEMON JUICE FAILS.
Not Found Effective in D -tnin
New-York Jan. 2. Dr. W. R
Park bacteriologist of t lie depart-
ment of health has made several
experiments to determine tire value
of luuon juice in destroying typhoid
bacilli regarding which so much
has been published recentlj'. Sev-
eral microscopical examinations of
cultures of typhoid bacilli which
and been subjected to the action of
the lemon juice showed that
although the acid killed the micro-
organisms it required too much
acid and too much time for the
chemical actum to take place to
render lemon juice as an agent

a typhoid prophylactic was cor-
rolairated. for after the bacilli had
been acted ujon by a ." j'cr cent
solution of the acid for thirty min-
utes it w.: f' n il that all of them

"My suspicions were confirmed
by the tests. It is far safer to boil
the water or filter it properly than
