On the other hand, only 102 human beings were killed by tigers instead of 119. Leopards and panthers accounted for 25 deaths against 30, but only 12 deaths are ascribed to bears compared with the 26 of the previous year. Six children were carried off by wolves in the Sangor District, whereas fourteen innocents were destroyed in the same way in 1893. The mortality among wild beasts was heavier than before, owing largely to the presence of European sportsmen. 261 tigers were killed compared with 207; 533 leopards instead of 500, and 154 bears compared with 106. An additional number of wolves, hyænas, jackals and spakes were also despatched. The increase among the cattle slain by these creatures is, however, very alarming. 10,000 heads are reported to bave

A CASE OF INVETERATE APERMATORRHEA. Patient, young man of 20, when he came under observation, November 25, 1894, had been under treatment for two years, though able to work come all the while. Soon after I commenced treating his case, and when I thought him to be improving satisfactorily, he got exposed to severe cold, frost-biting his hands and

feet and nearly freezing him to death. From this time his spermatorrhea got bad as ever, and was complicated with torpid liver, constipated bowels and gastrointestinal dyspepsia. I had the complications under control when I received the Sexual Tonic Granules from the Phila. Granule Co. I gave as directed and required him to report to me when one third of his medicine had been used. He had greatly improved; the vermicular feel of the scrotum had greatly improved; he had gained self confidence and had had but one nocturnal emission, and that the second night after commencing the use of the Granules. I then directed the next third of the supply to be used on alternate days. He was to, and did, report when this second third was used. I then directed him to use at any time when he felt like relapsing; then he was to use for a day or two. Since he had used the second third I have heard no complaint and had practically lost sight of the case, when I chanced to see him yesterday. I examined him and considered him well and he so considered himself—and that you know is three-fourths of the battle. He told me that he yet had fifteen or twenty of the Granules, and did not suppose he would ever need them.

DR. A. N. Scotin, of Russia, noting that an epi. demic of small.pox was approaching the district under his charge, personally examined every child under fourteen years of age before the disease arrived. The total number of children examined was 1564, distri. buted among 665 families and in 30 villages. He found that 1055 had been vaccinated and had visible scars ; 75 children formed a second group of doubtful cases which were said to have been vaccinated, but on which no scars were visible, and 424 bave never been vaccinated.

The small pox arrived and a wide spread, although not very fatal epidemic resulted.

It was found that of the 1055 « vaccinated” chil. dren only 16, or 13%, contracted the disease; of 1 he 75 “doubtful,” 35, or 46.6%, suffered, while of the 434"unvaccinated” children, 244, or 58.6%, caught the disease.

In other words, the unvaccinated suffered to an extent forty-five times as great as the vaccinated.

Further, it was observed that in 189 families all the children were unvaccinated, and in these families if one child sickened with the small-pox, the disease spread, with only seventeen exceptions, to every other child in the house. On the other hand, in houses where some children were vaccinated and some were not, the disease without exception attacked the latter and the former escape d.-Lancet.
