YELLOW FEVER ITEMS
To PREVENT FEVER.
Coleman Newman, of 31 Smith
street, Brooklyn,, is anxious that
the people of the country shall
know of what he claims to be- a
positive preventive of yellow fever
and all contagious diseases.
Mr. Newman says that a bag
worn over the chest containing a
small lump of asafoetida, a lump
of camphor and a pod of garlic will
stave off all infectious and conta
gious diseases. He says this pre
ventive has always been used ,in
Poland, with great success, even
being efficacious in the time of'the
black plague. Mr. Newman says
it is well worth trying and that it
will be found to be the means,
should fear of an epidemic prevail,
of reassuring the people. Objec
tion might be made to the combi
nation of odors, but he says they
will not be offensively noticeable
if the ingredients are carefully in
cased in a muslin bag.
T''o CURE YELLOW FEVER.
A correspondent of one of the
London papers asserts that no fatal
results need be feared from yellow
fever If the person attacked, as
soon as the symptoms appear, takes
a tumblerful of olive oil with the
juice of a lime squeezed into it.
This dose should be repeated till
vomiting and purging ensue.
,,'his is Infallable in checking the
virulence of the complaint, says
the letter writer, , "and a speedy
convalescence Invariably follows.
I have not only pyoved its efficiency
personally, but have witnessed its
complete succeys in dozens of cases,
both in Cuba'and South America."
CREOSOTE SMOKE KILLS MOSQUITO.
Will H. Price, of Biloxi, Miss.,
says: It is a well-known fact that
creosote smoke played an import
ant part in the yellow fever of
1878.-- Walter Foster, section boss
of this place, kept a pile of rotten'
logs in his yard, sprinkled with
creosote, burning all the time,
night and day, and his family was
in the house, with yellow fever
all over the town, but Foster's
family never took the fever.
1 took my family to a!house on
Choukltabuff river, above Black
well's, my three children, just over
the fever; my wife, two young
ladies and apboy, and ten gallons
of creosote. I kept the smoke up,
as Mr. Foster did in Biloxi, and
i none took the fever.
Worms, bugs, flies, mosquitoes,
r spiders, all got the smoke and died.
rLPILne IN THE SHOE.
SA correspondent of the Ti'mes
' Democrat says: As an ounce of
preventativeies worth a poubd -of
cure, I'thouglt It worth while to
call your attention to a simple reme
7 dy for keeping the mosquito away
trom the person. My informant
obtained his intormataoh from a
doctor who practiced in ,Havana,
Cuba, for a number of years be
fore sciences discovered that Cthe
stegomyla transmitted the disease
of yellow fever.' The remedy. is
so'simple that it (may be laughed
at. It is this: Take about halt a
small teaspoonful of flower of sul
phur every morning, and put in the
beel of the stocking. The smell
arising from 'the same will keep
the mosqu:to away from the per
son. I will frankly .say that 1,
and numerous others of my ac
quaintances, have tried0it for the
past three days, and find nothing
offensive i .
Wly THE NEGRO Is IMMUNE.
Baton Rouge, La., Aug. 6.
Some of the.physicans of the city
present a novel and plausible theory
in regard to the negro anti the yel
It is a well known fact that the
negro is less apt to take ibe yellow
fever than a white person. Few
negroes ever take the fever, and
this fact, it'hs generally supposed,
is due to the peculiarities ot the
Now the theory is adval ieed that
the reason the negro. seldo m takes
the fever is due to the fac t that he
is always fighting the r losquito.
The negro has always wa-: ed war
fare on the stegom'yia and theother
numerous breeds of the mosquito.
Whether he has a but in the field
or a shanty in the city, the negro
Jis always smoking the mosquito'
out of the house. Now, the theory
is advanced by some of the physi
cians of the city that this fact is the
t cause of the negro's apparent im
1 munity from yellow fever.
SEducation For Boys.
Walter L Colhy in Good House
keeping gives some good advice to
boys and boy's parents in which he
very wisely says:
"The question frequently arises
es to the wisdom of sending to a
boarding school boys who are not
intending to prepare for college,
but who really need a more com
plete education than their surround
ings have permitted, especially
those reared in rural districts where
the educational advantages are very
limited. There are boss in towns
and manufacturing places who are
to remain with their fathers on the
farmu or in the shop (and we wish
this number might increase) and
learn to carry pnithe business which
their fathes have established. For
these the boarding school offers
many special advantages; the
change of scene and companionship,
an enlarged sphere, new ideas and
a respect for the rights of others
which iG nowhere better cultivated
than in a well regulated school of
this kind. Parents or guardians
may feel that this is a waste of time,
but we are confident that it is not;
for there is no walk in- life where a
well educated and cultured man is
not recognized as superior to those
who lack these qualities."
We have two fine boarding schools
for boys, St. Joseph's College and
Dixon Academy, with constantly
"Didn't that patient respond to
your treatment?" asked the doc
ior's wife. "Not yet," replied the
physician, "and I've sent him

CRAVE TROUBLL FOlSEEN.
It needs but litttle foresight to tell
that when your stomach and liver are
badly affected grave trouble is ahead,
unless you take the proper medicine
for your disease, as Mrs. John A.
Young, of Clay, N. Y.. did. She says:
"1 had neuralgia of the liver and stom
ach, and my heart was weakened, and
I could not eat; I was very bad for a
long time; but in Electric Bitters I
found just what I needed, for they
quickly relieved and cured me." Best
