YELL! >W JACK AND TYPHOID
In referring to th,- relativ.- danger or
typhoid and yellow fevers, th.. Philadel?
phia Record has ibis lo say:
"Typhoid kills ten vic tims where yol -
low fever does one; but we hav. become
So accustomed to its ravage, and to the
unsanitary conditions which promote
its spread, that w.; blindlv submit as to
an una voidable evil. The fact that In
be- subd.I the scourge only needs in be
fought with the weapons which science
has pill in our bands is one that i< par.
licularly disgraceful to our government
and to our great municipalities like
Philadelphia. There is no such percent?
age of deaths from typhoid lev er in I he
armies of Germany and France as in
our army, and no such ravage in the
c ities of England, Germany and France
as ill Ibis c ity."
it is a peculiar hie I ih.it constant as?
sociation with dangers seem lo dull
one's senses to that particular form of
peril. < >f course, the engineer knows
that his lire is in jeopardy till th.- time
he is driving his immense hop horse
forward, but In- always has an abiding
faith in luck, or something else, and
firmly believes that be will come .,ut all
right. It is the- same way with disease.
Typhoid and pulmonary diseases anno
ally claim almost innumerable victims,
while yellow fever's ravages are com?
paratively small. Vet people will go
ab-ad in and out among the conditions
thai are responsible- for typhoid with
ihe utmost equlnimlty. while it
smallpox or yellow fever be hint?
ed at .is in exist ance in a certain sec
ii.-a common sens.- gives wav to insane
and unreasoning fright and a panic en
sues. This is because the latter diseases
Jaie not so well known ami arc not s..
familiar to th.- general run of people,
and have not I.u shorn ..! theh imag?
inary horrors by close association. In
this day ..f enlightened ideas concerning
sanitation there is litlU- excuse for the
prevalence .,f any of tie- fevers. Every
one of them may be traced directly ...
indirec-ilj t,, lilth. Philadelphia aim
regards the sanitary condition of the
eity at large.
When the sewerage system which Is
now being constructed in tins city i?
completed there Is no reason w hy New ?
port News should not in- on.- of tie
healthiest places in tie- United States.
Even under the unsanitary conditions
that have been in existence for the past
five years it has been remarkably free
from diseases, c.r all kinds, and especial?
ly those for which one would naturally
look in this section of tin- country.
We presume that our esteemed con?
temporary, the Philadelphia Press, hau
been too busy considering election fig?
ure* and predictions to pay any alien,
o the little affair out In Wisconsin
Monday. We would most respectfully
.ill us attention to the Hict that a mob
if brutal white men took a poor, inof?
fensive colored man (he had only as?
saulted a young lady) and hung him to
a convenient tree. We are shocked at
..'us terribly ami inexplicable conduct on
it.lit of those miners of the far away
.Vorthwest. We have been foil..w ing the
?oinmeiits of the Prow i|uite closely and
had come to the conclusion that these
little lynching bees were purely ., South?
