Dr. J. C. Peters writes in Harper's
Weekly of April 25th, a succinct
history of the cholera scourge;
showing the conditions and causes
of its origin and propagation, and
pointing out how, by very ordinary
processes, the. ravages of the dis
ease may be stayed. Cholera, the
terror of mankind for centuries,
has now, by the investigations of
science, been discovered to be, if
not a curable, at least a prevcntiblc
disease. It has travelled over con
tinent and ocean, from time to time,
carrying death and lamentation
wherever it rested. Every succes
sive swell of this tidal wave of death
seems to have had India for its start
ing point. It has been known to
exist there since 1503. At seven
different periods, its terrible waves
. have been dashed upon the shores of
Europe, Africa and America, besides
striking eastward and northward
over the great centres of population
in Asia. It has had, like a caravan,
distinct routes of travel. These
routes have been carefully traced,
and arc, (1) Through North Per
sia and Central Asia; (2) by way
of the Persian Gulf; and (3) by
way of the Red Sea. At every suc
cessive outbreak, it spread towards
the west. It has in several instances
been arrested in its progress through
the temperate zone by the frosts of
the winter season. That the scourge
starts from India need not be re
garded as a phenomenal fact. It is
an instance of the inexorable char
acter of the laws of nature. The
elementary principles of cause and
effect applied lo certain well
known and established scientific
facts are quite sullicient lo ac
count for the periodical germina
tion of the cholera plague in. India.
And it is invariably in those cities
where similar conditions exist and
precisely in proportion lo the extent
to which they do exists that the
scourge falls with a greater or less
terrific force. Dr. Peters enumer
ates, in his article referred to, the
conditions on which India has be
come the mother of pestilence for
herself ami the rest of the world.
The first reason assigned is the im
mense population of 280,000,000.
Reason the second is in the habits
and modes of living of the people.
The people arc generally poor. The
water is bad, and is made worse by
the filthy habits of the natives, who
wash themselves, their clothing and
utensils in tank water, and then use
water out of the same tanks for
cooking and drinking. Their food
consists mostly of rice, and that
not always half cooked. Fuel
is scarce, hence cooking is reduced
to a minimum, and nearly everything
is eaten cold. They have very little
salt, scarcely any milk or butter,
meat and fish are wanting, and ten,
coffee and spirits are not in common
use, as in other countries. "Where
the germs of cholera exist in the
water supply, they have a chauco of
being killed in the boiling process,
but when little or no tea, coffco, or
cooked food is used, the germs arc
taken into the stomach, where they
soon develop themselves. Houses
in towns and villages arc closely
packed together, Hie spaces between
being used for convcnicncy and nil
manner of filth. Tho huts have, for
openings, only small doors, but no
windows. And when disease breaks
out in one hut, or in a group of them,
the people all crowd into their neigh-
bors' huts. Add to nil this, n innln
rlnl soil, nnd the crowding together
of vnst multitudes in the numerous
pilgrimages that must be mndo every
yenr to holy shrines nnd holy cities,
the march of cnruvnua, nnd nrmics,
nud nu extensive shipping Initio with
nil purls of the world ; nnd no one
need wonder Hint India Is the world's
great nursery and disseminator of
the "Wrick death" pestilence.

A medical paper accounts for the
longevity and continued power of
brain-work of some European states
men by the habits they are made to
acquire from childhood of avoiding
worry, excitement and haste.
Collegiate education and book
learning are not capable of confer
ring common-sense. If a person
doesn't get some common-sense from
his mother, no amount of reading
and study will .supply the deficiency.
When you see a man stroking his
moustache downward, present no
bills, for he is out of sorts; but
when you find him giving it an up
ward inclination, you have him in a
good-natured mood, when he will
probably pay up with a smile.
The revised Bible was to have
been issued in England on the l'Jth
May. It may reach our shores
about a month hence. This will
give those of our people who haven't
quite got through reading the old
one, a chance to finish before the
new book arrives.
An Eastern town was, for several
years, under the alllictivc rule of an
inefficient school committee. Argu
ment and agitation had been ex
pended fruitlessly on the grievance.
A few of the leading spirits among
the women went to work and can
vassed quietly among those of their
own sex who were entitled to vote.
The result, of course, was a brilli
ant success. The next school com
mittee was composed of men quali
fied, rather by worth and education
than by political antecedents, for
the administration of school affairs.
