o’clock.
The Anal decline in McLeod’s
condition began 94 hours prior

difficulty in reepiration, due to
the abeoese in the lungs and
fluid in ttie pericardion cavity.
It wros only In the last few hours
of bis life that be loet conscious
ness. For two weeks tbs superb
young frame hod battled with
the ravages of tbs disease, and,
though tlic temperature wus al
wsrwhigbjsnd sometimes reach

m wined strangely unclouded.

The death of McLeod mi not
unexpected. On January 15th,
while dissecting the body of a
colored woman in the medical
eotlege at.Davidson, he absorbed
in hie system a poison so dan
gerous in its Initial symptoms as
to almost preclude any hope of
•woovery. Without knowing it
he bad on the hack of hie right
band a alight, nneeoable abra.

through which the poison enter,

know hie danger and suffered no
111 effects until the following
night when he bad a chill And
noticed that there was a small
blister on his hand. This wound
was cauterised, but the remedy
came too lata He developed a
high temperature, wiilch conld
pot be kept down. DP. Munroe,
uo« o| bis physicians, wired Torfor
aaUn, the new remedy for blood
poisoning, and this was used-for
several days, but to no advau
t tge. The physician stated
that the death of the student
wee only a matter of a very few
days, but still McLeod, a boy 9
years old, held his nerve, and.
cootoww, and with a perfectly
dear brain watched clossly every
symptom* in his own cas>; even
