I beg most ffflc'batically to contradict that state * t ■ but before going into explan atory I should like to state that 1 period of infectivity is somewhat of a debatable subject. Thecar.se 0f the disease has never been traced l0a «erm, and unlike diphtheria bacteriology gives us no help. For ffi»rlv it was taught that patients trhowere "peeling" were infectious. Tiie most recent researches tend to chow that this theory is erroneous.

In certain cases the state of infection may be brief or pro longed to severa...

Sports and Pastimes. DEATH OF. KING COMEDY The Melbourne "Punch" writes : — Sincere regret was expressed on sli s'fies when it became known that the champion and favorite grey hound, • King Comedy, was dead. The'"accident which caused< the death of this great dog was as simple as it is regrettable. King Comedy was being exercised by his owner, Mr. Geo. Muir, in a pad dock near his residence, "Cliiton," Bacchus Marsh. The dog was on the leading strap, when a hare rose against him, and the instinct to give chase immediately asserted himself. Unfortunately, the King succeeded in slipping his head out of the col lar, and iu an instant lie was hard on the line of his game. The hare ran under a tightly strained wire fence. King Comedy attempted to ; dash between the wires, as he had often done before, but they were too tight, and he was thrown viul-utly, sustaining a broken neck, and dying almost immediately. ' — A NATIONAL LOSS — From a coursing point of view. King Comedy's de...
