DISCOVER SERUM V CURE TYPHOID ANNOUNCEMENT JUST MADE In PARIS CAUSES MUCH INTEREST. Paris, June ,10. The announcement of another wonderful "serum" cuie it causing considerable interest in medical circles. Professor Vicente, of the Valdgerace Military Hospital, is credited with having discovered a serum which both prevents and cures typhoid fever. It is said that more than 50,000 persons have received treatment with Dr. Vicente's cure. Wonderfully sucessful tests are an nounced. For instance, one day a patient who had been treated with the serum drank a glass of pure cul tures of bacilli. It was expected that the man was beyond hope and the doctors all said he would die. As a matter of fact, the bacilli apparently bad no immediate effect upon him. There was no increased indication of fever, however, and after several weeks of observation the physicians declared that he completely escaped contagion. Dr. Theroloix, of the Pitie Hospital of this city, who had watched the case, secured anoth r patient who had been treated with the serum three weeks before and subjected him to a sub cutanous injection of pure virulent typhoid bacilli. The first injection was three cubic centimeters of germs. There was not the slightest sign of reaction. Eight days later a second injection was made and when three weeks more had passed the patient was injected for the third time. The patient's con dition remained unchanged through out the treatment. Dr. Theroloix declares that he has effected cures at the hospital in sev enteen days. "There's a Difference ASK YOUR DOCTOR Pepsi-Cola .For Thirst Thinkers. SAVE THE CROWNS they are valuable.

MANY DELEGATES DETAINED Day Brought To A Close Most Brilliant Reception. By A The thirty-fourth annual convention of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association convened in this city yes terday morning. Owing to the fact that a number of the druggists were detained at home on account of bus iness only about seventy-five members were in attendance at yesterday's sessions but a number of others, among whom will be President, J. G. M. Cordon of Clayton, will arrive this morning. The business sessions were held in the High School building and the first meeting, in the absence of President Cordon, was called to order by Vice President C. P. Harper of Selma. Following a very impressive invocation by Rev. li. !'. Iluske, recto- of Christ Episcopal church, an excelk it a' Ire s of welcome was deleiered in bchau of thecity of New Bern by E. H. Meadows. Mr. Meadows was among the first organizers ot the iNorin Carolina rnar- maceutical Association and his remarks were both interesting and instructive. After bidding the visiting druggists to enjoy their visit to the "Athens of North Carolina" Mr. Meadows spoke for a few minutes on matters which were of vital importance. He urged them to take no backward step but to progress with the times. He suggested that all applicants to prac tice pharmacy become proficient in microspocial examinations. Mr. Meadows also suggested to the Association that they encourage the education of females to practice phar macy. "There is none so well adapted to pharmacy as ladies," said Mr. Meadows, "Their care, reliability, neatness and intelligence recommend them. "They have but one disqualifying quality, from a bachelors view-point, their inability to keep a secret, the fals ity of which is known by all men save and except our bachelor brothers Why are they so wise of your warm hearted citizens. We know that in the past your toww has charmed its visitors by the manner of its entertainment. When conven tions have assembled here and the del egates have enjoyed the pleasures which it affords, they go away feeling that New Bern would be a delightful place to live." ' Dr. R. DuVal Jones of this city wel comed the visitors on behalf of the local physicians. His address was Vicf bi:t was thoroughly enjoyed. He was followed by Dr. F. W. Hancock of Oxford. Dr. Hancock is a native of New Bern and has a host of friends all over this section. His tribute to the city of his birth was fitting and be tutif ul and during the time that he held the floor there was intense interest manifested. Owing to the fact that the president and a number of members were absent, it was decided to delay the majority of the business until today and this was done. Secretary J. G. Baird of Clayton read a number of communica tions from other associatons sending fraternal greetings and best wishes after which the session came to a close. Last night the druggists were ten dered a reception at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. D Bradham on Union street. This event, which proved one of the most brilliant of the season, was largely attended and pioved greatly enjoyable.

"So open wide your doors to the ladies and bid them to your member ship." In concluding his address, Mr. Meadows said: "Again I tender you in behalf of the local Pharmacists a whole-hearted wel come, a welcome to the smiles of New Bern's fair daughters, a welcome to our parks, a welcome to our beauti ful rivers, but I pray you to take none of them Irom us, if such appeal to you abide with us and they are all yours, and if you are not so impressed, come again, and remember that the latch string hangs on the outside." Dr. C. P. Harper of Selma, Vice president of the Association, responded to the address of welcome on behalf of the visiting physicians. Dr. Harper is an orator of ability and his remarks were thoroughly enjoyed. In part he said: ' The hearty welcome which has been accorded us has surpassed, my expectations. To those of us who are visitors in your city, it is avery grati lying, it is very satisfying. I knew the gentleman's greeting would be kind and cordial, but I did not know that be would turn the whole town over to us.

The deceased was thirty-two years of age. He is survived by his wife, formerly Miss Mary Holton of Olympia; one brother, Carl Dixon of Olympia, and three sisters, Mrs. W. K.

Fifty farmer bays on horseback faced from Lee's wharf on Nansemond river, to Driver yesterday afternoon with William J. Bryan, Secretary of State, who, at 2:30 o'clock, made a speech at the Nanse mbnd villiage n which he told an aud iejice of 2,000 people his idea of the proper education lor larmer boys d all boys. The most improtant tlbject of education in the human being, according to the secretary, is the heart, neglect of which he believes is the source of nost of the troubles that wreck men and nations. "This country and mankind at large," said Secretary Bryan, "are governed by educated men, but the pity of it is that educated men, so many of them, have sold their brain to the cause of injustice to mankind. My message to you is that you improve your bodies and make them strong, improve your farms and make them productive, in prove your schools and colleges to the end that your minds may have every facility for improvement; but, unless, at the same time, you develop in your heart the spirit of justice to mankind, of service to your fellows rather than means to material profit through time, then it is all wasted and life has been a failure. I believe that the cure for the dif ficulties and sins about which individ uals and nations degrade themselves by conflict and bloodshed lies in harmon izing the heart with the Creator, and to attain that end must be the ideal of all properly directed education." The occasion was the closing exer cises of the Second Congressional Dis trict Agricultural High School here, Representative E. E. Holland having for the secretary peak.
