SCIENTIST'S SERUM 1 I litTEBNtD GERMAN AND DIPLOMATIST'S I ILLNESS A REMARKABLE STORY I The recent death of an English diplo- matist hfs revealed a remarkable fact about a German scientist now interned &t Alexandra Palace. The scientist is Frederick Mehnarto, a pupil of Koch, a Harley-street covisultant who came inlo prominence three years ,go in oannection with experiments in the treatment of tuberculosis conducted in London at the Margaret-street Hospital and the .Dreadnought Hospital, Corenwich. Dr. Mehnarto claimed to have discovered a serum for cons-nmption. I On the outbreak of war he was interned t at the Alexandra. Palace. His house in Harley-street and his home and laboratory at Noting Hill were closed. A few months I ago a well-known diplomatist was suffer- t in? from the disease for which the in- terned Germa.n? eerum was considered a J po.ible co ra. Eopre??ntations were made' to the authorities, and it was agreed t.. allow Mehnarto to return to his labvri' I tory at Notting Hill, as he alone coul 1 manufacture the serum. The secret lie rf j fused to impart to an-one. I Vipers and the Serum. [ The Oerman left the palace each drv I under escort. But an initial difficult; had to be overcome. For his experiment he had kept a. number of vipers. The? w-ere no-it dead. lIe was given facilitiee ?r QhtDiIÃng what he raquirpd from tb, 1 Zoological Garden?. Thu? supplied h- j worked fox months in his laboratory, p-r j flucmg the serum under the official eye o a Scotland Yard ofifcer. Ho also con- tinued experiments for the perfecting of h serum to take the place of u 6% and claimed to have arrived at a satisfactory result while working1 as a prisoner of war. \V hile thus or 1:a red news was sent him from Germans that his mother (who had visited hira. in England just before the war) bad been stricken with tuberculosis, contracted it -was feared, through a too! venturesome visit to his laboratory. There was a reqrie«t that a phial of her son's serum should be sent her. Phial for Germany. I Br the courtesy of the British authorities a messenger was despatched with the elixir and with a letter in code to Dr. :\fehnarTf}' onlv sister giving the secret of the cure. The messenger was seized on entering Germany, the letter and phial were conflated, and the sister to whom the letter was addressed was ar- rest ed, and, as far as is known, she is still held prisoner. Meanwhile the,illness of the diplomatist for the treatment of whom Dr. Mehnarto had beesn a Jo red to retrsm to his Labora- tory did not yield to treatment. Eventually the permit to loavo Alexandra Palace was revoked, and the scientist now spend" his days behind the barbed wire at Wood C reen along with other Germans who hold places in science, art, and medicine. At the time of his internment Dr.: Mehnarto was in negotiation with the physicians of a crowned head for a supply of his serum.
