Choral Union Series.
An entertaiameut, unique, a lost
ideal in artistic excellence was giv n
by Mr. and 'Mrs. Henselhel last even-
ing. The program was in itself a
masterpiece, containing the puorat
gems of vocal musi, gathered from
every source, and showed the famil-
iarity of the selector with -the entire
held of musical literature. Mr. and
Mrs. Henschel were bOth in good
voice. The selections were received

Mrs. Hensehel has a voice remark-
ably sweet :and expressive, though it
cannot be said to be strong or of wide
rnge. Buti 'in her field it would be
difficult to. find an artist who odgit
claim to be her equal. Her selections
were rendered with the rarest deli-
racy of expression. The sweet little
.song "Where Be Going," received an
icnterpretation so delicate and fanciful
that the enraptured audience demiiand-
ed an encore, which was graciously
given. "Die Lorelly" received the due
dramatie rendering and served to
bring out the powers of the sing r.

the sweet and dainty selectrons in
which the prograni abound-d.

of applause. Mrs. Henschel was cal-

The reitderings of Ohe "ttuined dill"
-and of "Heary the Fowler," were
characteized by :great strength and
expression. One of the i-oast delight-
ful selections was the duet "hib, that

Prof. Novy on Germs.
One of 'the most .interesting papers
Thursday at the 'Sanitary eonve-ntiaaa
in Detroit, is reported to have been
that by Prof. Frederick G. Novy, 1.
D., of 'Ann A ror, on "Geros, What
'hey A-re ami-How Tey Caus
Disease." Prof. Novy said that of the
vast numler of micros-opic living be-
ings called germs with' which people
came .in almost constant contact, the
gmeat majority are prfectly harmless.
Most of them are in their nature
scavengers, and butt for them the
earth would be covered withi layers
of dead animas and tlants. They are
thus i-nportant to the life of higer
animais and plants. But a small nam-
her of germs enter the tissues of liv-
ing beings and cause disease. A quit'-
ter of a mil'ion people die annually
in the tJnited States from diseases
due to these minuate bodies. The sim-
plest class of these 'are the bacteria,
which are of various shapes, or the
bacillua, ball-saped and spira. If
placed side by side, 25,000 would
comfortably ocupy the space of one
ineh. They multiply by dividing in
the middle, completing the operation
sometimes in the space of half an-
hour. This in 48 hours, one germ
may develop into 280,000,000. The
poison of the disease germs is ex-
I tremnely dangerous.
