In What Amrrcun Should Save e
th« Free LUt*
AmericuR should save $10,000 a year
ou account of sugar being placed on the
free list, as this ought to mean a reduc
tion of two cents a pound in the retail
It is questionable, however, whether
the consumers will really get the benefit
of this piece of governmental considera
tion. The sugar refiners are all in a big
combine—Sprcckles included, and it is
for them to determine what the poor
pulic shall pay for its sweetening.
The consumption of sugar per capita
in the United States is about fifty
pounds a year. In Amerieus the con
sumption would then be about .*100,000
pounds, and the saving at 2 cents a
pound, which the consumer in justice
should have, would make the $10,000.
The Louisiana sugar crop is about
42/>,000,000 pounds, and has to meet
the reduction, but the government com
pensates for that by paying the domes
tic producers of sugar a bounty of 2
cents a pound.

PKOFKSSOR KOCH'S LYMPH.
A Berlin despatch on Wednesday stat
ed that at the opening of the German
Surgical Congress in that city Professor
Bergmann read a report on the Kocli
treatment, maintaining that tiie remedy
is a specific for tuberculosis. The de

other speakers expressed less favorable
views. Nevertheless, it should be un
derstood that very few even of German
physicians have hail such large oppor
tunities for ascertaining tho value of tiie
lymph as Professor Bergmann
That tho lymph is not a specific, but a
dangerous resort, in advanced cases of
pulmonary tuberculosis seems to have
been settled by the clinical tests already
made. Professor Koch never claimed
that it was available in the last stages

of Dr. Bergmann, who certainly
lias hod exceptional facilities for deter
mining tho value of the new remedy, de
serves tho most careful consideration.
His view agrees with that of other physi

nities of testing tuberculin, and whoso
conclusion is entitled to more respect
and weight than that of tlk.usauds < f
other physicians, however eminent, who
have had no large practical experience
with tiie lymph in their own practice.
