American News and Notes [excerpt]

     A Temporary Smallpox Hospital.—The committee in charge of arrangements for the Meschianza, which is to be held at the Academy of Music November 11 to 16, for the benefit of the McKinley Memorial Hospital, has taken an important step toward fulfilling the object of their mission. A large plot of ground has been secured near Fort Mifflin, in the lower section of the city, upon which a temporary hospital will be erected for the treatment of smallpox and other contagious diseases.


     Czolgosz’s Body.—The fact that Czolgosz’s body was buried in sulphuric acid and quicklime has roused the ire of the chemists, for an equal quantity of these substances will exactly neutralize one another. Yet any excess of either material will rapidly destroy the body.
