SERUM SAVES LIFE
OF NEW,-YORK GIRL
Anti-Toxin of Government Responsi.
ble, Not That of Illini Doctor
The serum which saved the life of
a New York girl, poisoned from ripe
olives several weeks ago, was not that
discovered by Dr. Robert Graham of
the University of, Illinois, but that
sent out by the bureau of animaltin-
dustry at Washington, declared Dr.
Herbert Emerson, .of the Pasteur in-
stitute of the University, yesterday af-
Dr. Graham informed the press of
this country a few days ago that he
would furnish his serum to be used
to combat the latest peril from olIVes,
which have been sent out by the
Sprague Warner company of Chicago.
'"I do not know," said Dr. Emerson,
"whether Dr. Graham has discovered
lately the type of serum necessary to
combat the prevalent olive poisoning.
There are two types' of anti-toxins,
type A and type B, and the anti-toxin
which Graham discovered a few weeks
ago was of type B, which is worth-
less in the present situation. If he
has discovered type A since then, it
will prove valuable in the peril which
has befallen this country."
"It is probable," continued Dr. Em-
erson, "that only a few containers in
the assignments sent the various
towns throughout the country ,will be
found to be contaminated, but until it
is known definitely to what extent
these have been contaminated, none
of the suspected brands should be
