As Mr. Carnegie read an in
formal deed of trust announcing
at length the general purpose of
his gift, there was ' prolonged ap
plause. He then explained the
incidents which inspired the giv

declared with emphasis "' that if

One of the members of the
board of trustees said tonight
that while theje Wt& ben no de

Eocles, in tt e Dietetic Hygieu
io Gazette, says: 'Without car
riers'tho continuance of "the dis
ease would be impossible. They
firat infect water and milk in re
gions previously free, they supply
the sporadic cas by infecting
food They asd their victims
produce great epidemics. Ouly
through them is it possible fox
th9 dose of any kind of disease
germs to be multiplied up to the
point of infecting whole commu
nities. It iB easy to understand
that typhoid carriers who work in
dairies may be, and almoat cer
tainly will be, the means of
spreading typhoid fever, lor milk
is a medium in which the germs
increase with almost incredible
rapidity, and the purer the milk
the more rapidly w.ill the germ
increase. People working in
kitchens as cooks, or who handle
food to any extent, if typhoid
carriers, have peculiar facilities
for spreading the disease. In the
United States and in Canada the
significance of the mode of dis
eminatiug typhoid is impress
ing itself vividly on ihe conicious
ji'Bs of medical men, and it is
felt that many epidemics of hith
erto obscure origin may bo ex
plained in this way. . The. find
ings of an expert commission, as
the commissioner working in
Washington was, has almoat
oliucbed the view that typhoid
carriers are important factors in
the spread of the malady. How
are typhoid carriers to be dealt
with even when discovered? It
would be impossible to geregate
them, and the only remedy seems
to be unscrupulous eperional
cleanliness, and especially of
those persons who work in dairies,
or who handle food. Hands must
be frequently washed thoroughly.

The Senfrlj Bill(. -
Washington, Dec. 19 As -the
result of a ruling by Vice -PxeaiU
deut Sherman that a Seuator hav
ing a pair with another Senator
could be counted 'to make up a
quorum, the Senate today, on
motion of Senator Hale, refused
to accept the dictum, over-ruling
it 37 to 17. The refusal of the
Senate to accept the decision of
its presiding officer followed a
protest voiced earlier in the day
against a-similar ruling made by
Mr. Sherman Saturday.
The claBh today, as was the
case Saturday, came up during
continued consideration of the
omnibus claims bill. The Senate
passed a few minor bills and
adopted the House resolution
agreeing to adjourn on Wednes
day for the Christmass recess,
reconvening January 5.
The House early in the session
fell into a parliamentary wrangle
which developed when the bill to
codify the postal laws was taken
up. The measure was still under
consideration when the House
adjourned. Several bills of minor
importance were pasBed.
