THE observations of Prof. Goluboff, of Moscow, have convinced him that appendicitis is not only a contagious disease, but that it sometimes occurs in epidemics. It was unusually prev alent in Moscow last year. To illus trate, Prof. Goluboff mentions that in a small boarding school, where in sev eral years there had not been a single case of appendicitis, he treated seven cases in two months.

1 WOMA N AND HOME 4 NEW WOMAN IN CHINA. Chinese Lady to Practice Medi cine In Her Own Land. The higher education of women in dulgently winked at, in special in stances even upheld, by Viceroy Li Hung Chang, and through him by the vast Flowery empire! Such, surprising aa it seems, is the present status of the woman question in China, the still shadowy beginning of a vast social rev olution a result of the astute states man's occidental tour. At least a number of his recent acts and the complacency with which they are received by the public so signify. One of these, coincident with his return, "was the choice of Dr. Rachel Q. Benn, of Tien-Tsin, where is his palace, as physician to the women of his house hold another, deeply pertinent, the appointment as delegate to the wom en's congress to be held in London in 1898 of two young Chinese girls, Miss Wang and Dr. Hu King Eng.

Uf ulators can "Lull" or- "bear"' wheat all the way down to 40 cents and up to $1 a bushel for a considerable time at lea,st. The fact is that unlimited capital in the hands of the modern gambler on the board of trade is able to set aside the effect of natural laws of supply and demand on prices, and, as a con sequence, ali business hereafter is sim ply speculation. You can no more iignre on a certain price for any, even the most stable necessaries of human existence, than you can on the state of the weather. "Whether wheat shall be 40 cents or 01 a bushel (and thai means whether 20,000,000 people in this coun try shnll prosper or be bankrupt) de pends now not on the cost of produc tion of wheat, nor on the supply or de mand ol it, but on the humor or fancy of a few multi-millionaires in Chicago or New York on wbeiher they are bulls or be:ire.
