plague has followed famine. The fam
ine has been almost univeisal, but the
plague has. pitched paiticulaily upon
Bombay. In all the searching for
causes of the epidemic no one has yet
distinctly accounted for this choice of
locality. Bombay has been ranked re
peatedly In olllelal statements as first
In sanitary advantages among the cities
of India. A -writer last month in an
Indian paper states that Bombay In
normal years compares favorably with
European cities in point of health. As
Asiatic cities go, Bombay is certainly
not extraordinarily dirty. All oriental
communities are dirty If not watched,
and all conceal their infectious .sick
from boards of health.
How, then, Is It possible that Bombay
should suddenly have risen to such an
epidemiological height above her sister
cities, and reduced her population and
paralyzed her Industilos like lightning,
while fouler capitals do not suffer?
CAUSES OF THE PLAGUE.
Benares Is to Bombay, for example,
as pitch is to snow. Benares, being the
holy city, tho Mecca of tho Hindus, is
packed with those unsanitary lellglon
ibts. More than 250,000 pilgrims aie
said to huddle on the bluff to "bathe"
every day in the swarming season,
Benares Is a city "given over to Idol
atry" und dirt. To that class of ldol
atiy known as Brahamluism, and tu
that class of dirt known as tilth. I read

of cleanliness: "The Hindu, no mat
ter what his pilvallons, must have his
bath every day." Hut If you could see
the bath! There Is such a. thing as
bathing in very dlity watei of the con
sistency of pea soup. Hindus often

gaibage and other pleasing Ingiedlents,

Another holy abyss In the Golden

but It is also filled with the lotting lesl

of the continuous lloial tilbutes with
which pious Biahmins pelt theli hidden
idol. Add to this the Intel estlng ad
junct of many "Hrahmli" bulls piome-
nading at will thiougli the temple, and
j on may imagine the hygienic condi
tions. The Monkey Temple, another honor,
is actually Inhabited by hallowed apes.
One may picture the cleanliness of this
sanctuary and the Inducements it offcis
to epidemics. Of course, epidemic is
piesent theie always and Inevitably in
a moie or li-s vlulent foi in. The stteets
aie baldly wide enough lor an elephant,
knee deep In mud and lefuse. And the
city Is under Biltlsh uile!
TWO KINDS OF ANIMALS.
Oithodox Hindus, besides the dally
"bath," aie often lauded lor their
kindness to animals. No Hindu will
kill a living cieatuie, not even n'l In
sect. The el feet of this entomological
philantluopy upon the persons nnd
beds of the humane may bo Imagined.
An anecdote of a not altogether fas
tidious tenor may be cited to show tho
cleanliness of the Hindus, A poor
man was auested for a debt. Tho
judge in couit asked him If he had no
meuns of support. He said he some
times earned I annas (1L cents) a day
by sleeping in the daytime on the
ehaipoys (twine beds) of Hindus. rTpon
being asked to explain, he did so. Ho
furnished lood for the bed bugs which
infested the cot, so that Its owner
could sleep at night! And this Is not
a Benaies, but a Calcutta Incident. It
shows, at any rate, the conditions un
der w hlch orientals live, and explains
the facility with which pestilence gains
access and foothold.
Newspaper statistics from Bombay,
Issued Jan. 10, showed that In the
Bombay piesldoncy altogether Mo
hammedans had suffeied most from
the plague. They are, pet haps, dirtier
than Hindus In their lower castes, for
nothing Is enjoined or forbidden these
by lellglon, and the sweeper caste cats
poisoned or decayed food with enjoy
ment. Low caste Hindus come next
to Mohnmmedans, and Wlndus of oth
er castes next. The death rate among
Brahmins was 41.07 In the thousand.
OUIGIN OF THE DISEASE.
Dr. James Cantllo, lately leturned
from Hong Kong, whole he Investigat
ed the plague fiom beginning to end,
has delivered a lectuie on the subject
befoie the Epidemiological society of
London, in which he announces the
conclusion that originally the disease
must bo imbibed Hist from the soil.
In the stomachs of rats that have
spread tho Infection and died of It
there have been found after deatli
sand nnd dirt.
Tho Inevitable deduction appears to
bo that soil, undralned for ages, lie-
comes thoroughly permeated with the
decaying vegetable und animal matter
thrown or left upon It, and Is Instant
pollution. And ncconllng to Bombay
authorities themselves tho only tiou
ble with their "perfect system" ot mu
nicipal drainage is that It Is not fin
ished! An Englishman who visited
Bombay lately for the purpose of ex
amining carefully Into the mattei
being a sanitary engineer summed up
his repot t thus to the commissioners:
1-.... . i ,, , , Mi, i i
"You have only to complete the dialn
age system accoidlng to the oilginal
plans and Bombay will have the best
diained city In the wot Id."
Consldeilng that Bombay City passed
to the Biltlsh crown when the Infanta
Catherina was mauled to Chailes II.,
and that In 1GS7 It was the brightest
star of the East India company's pos
sessions; taking Into account also the
tiivlal fact that It has been under
English municipal uile since the death
of the East India company, and the
establishment of English govetnois
under a governor geneial about 1757;
taking these mlnoi facts Into account,
It seems as if the Bombay "perlect
dialnage" system might have been fin
ished befoie the end of 200 years of
DIFFICULTIES OF SANITATION.
But it Is tine that the dlfllcultles In
the way not only of establishing sew
eiage, but of having It used aie
enoiinous and almost insupeiable. We
do not leallze at all the deeply looted
caste system which makes the gentle,
seivile Hindu a veiv demon of ob
stinacy when it comes to adopting
habits not tnesciibed In his lltual. A
water tap, a waste pipe, a system of
plumbing, a dlsiegard of natuie's pio
vlslons, the lllteilng of water or cleans
ing It for bathing pin poses all these
aie dliectly contiaij to tiadltlon, us
age and "dustiu" (custom), which
ought to bo lopresented as one of the
Inexorable gods of India, with four
legs and four aims. It Is one of the

Another obstacle Is the fatalistic ele

is a firm believer In the Inevitable af

Dr. Cantlle notices the gieat mortal
ity of nits as among tho prellmlnailes
of plague epidemic. The present
plague, by the by. In Bombay, he ven
tuies to name "malignant polyadeni
tis," and consldeis the title "bubonic
fever" lnaceuiate. This plague he de
fines as "an acute febrile disease of an
Intensely fatal natuie characterized
by inflammation of the lymphatic
glands, maiked ceiebial and vesicu
lar dlstui bailees, and by the piesence
of a speclHc bacillus." The Kit seems
to be infected, Dr. Cantlle says, before
the human being, nnd the fact of dead
tats helg found about the house during
the plague epidemic Is a title warning
that the inmates of tho house will lu
all probability be affected. And In sup
port of the theory that plague Is a soil
In ed, n miasmatic disease, ho bilngs
forward the fact that rats aie Ivaihi
bly affected. The most Ignorant na
tives will vacate their villages when a
rat mortality has become distinctly no-
1 tlceable, and lu some districts the dls-
ease is Hxed In mind as the sickness
"when the lats die."
The Times of India In September,
1S0G, contained an at tide In which the
wilter said: "It was known moie than
a month ago to all the people of Maldvl
(the ilUtiict in Bombay presidency
vvheie the plague bioke out) and to all
the .municipal sweepeis In the dlstilct
that the lats weie dying In thousands
all over the dlstilct. The weie found
dead and d Ing almost everywhere,
and In places whole dead tats weie
never found befoie." ' Then the
w i Iter makes this significant leflectlon:
"The gieat lat mortality only became
known leeeivtly. nnd yet w hat a vol
ume of infoimatlon was It capable of
cairylng if It was only lightly usvd It
Is universal histoiy that iat and plague
moitallty go together."
.HATS SPREAD THE PLAGUE
How N the rat Infected? asked Di
Cantlle. He Is susceptible it Inocula
tion, expel iinent has proved; but "we
cannot assume that eveiy rat has a
tciateh oi open wound by which it Is
Infected." It Is moie natuial to sup
pose that he Imbibes It as miasma In
concentiated form or Ingests It with
his food. And we nie sine that It Is
,not a chance Inoculation, but a gen
eral Infection, when thousands of rats
die, and scoies In one house inside of
u few bonis."
In Calcutta a "Benign polyadenitis"
has spiead, dutlng which no rats have
died, and no, or few, human beln'j"
It Is olaboialely desci Hied In Dr. Cant
lte's lectuie in the Lancet, and appears
to differ fiom the malignant diseases
only In the item of non-fatality.
As for the causes of the outbieak
and continued lavages of the plague.
Dr. Cantlle consldeis the climate only
partly to blame. In China tho plague
came at tbe end ol a ill ought, and In
Bombay also. Hut whethei oi not
theie Is any actual connection between
plague and drought he consldeis
doubtful. The bacillus of plague lloui
Ishes best In a vvnun, moist ntmo
