The Eucalyptus, as it is more and more planted and studied, continues to prove a success. In Algeria the best results are found, malaria disappearing wherever the wonderful tree is planted. On the Campagna around Rome, at a place called the Three Churches, a place abandoned every night because of the disease prevailing, it is found sufficiently healthy and the monks sleep there with impunity. What a blessing this proves, and how sad to think that the world has been so long deprived of the benefit. With quinine and Eucalyptus, a new era in medicine, nay, in the world, begins.
