ment of the discovery at Capetown by
Dr. Koch of a process by which cattle
can be rendered secure from rinder-
pest. Inoculation of a mixture of
scrum and of virulent rinderpest blood
produces immunity within a fortnight.
Dr. Koch declares that by these meth-

also can be seen the results of the in
sistence of the president that these
delegations shall do their own weed-
ing out. Delegations are meeting and

sidence of the office-seeking craze.
