Pour Deaths in One Family.
The family of Dlutler Cunzninghamn, a col
( ored tenant on the farm belonging to Mr.
-J. V. Jones, near Enterprise, have been
great sufferers within the last week. About
ten days ago nearly every member of the
fanmity was takeni sick with typhoid fever.
Two of the childran died Friday and their
mother died Sunday. The fever was of such a
malignant type that medical skill wats tot ally
inef'ectual. This fearful miortality m-ty be
stributed to a pile ot decaying cotton seed,
and a filthy pig penl. They were very poor
people and in consequence had beeni during
tile fall and winter unable to provide ei
ther an abundance of (lie best food or (lie
'most comfortable clothing--with systeins
insufficlently nourished, and imiiproperly
protected from thie weather, they were phy~
sically not in a good condit ion to resist (lie
attack of the fever wvhiceh resulted as a na.,
tural consequence cf thte plain violation of
the hygiene. So violent was the poison
enmltied. fromn lie seed and (lhe pen in which
a hog had been fattened last fail, thlat the
fowl. about the yard sickened and died as
soon as the warm sunshine filled (lie air
with the poisonous germs, which had lain
dormant during the cold weather.
Mr. Jones Is dolig everydhing possible
for the atfficted people. Besides secur'ng
medical attention lie has ordered the causes
of disease to be abated by a heavy covering
of earth thrown over them. To remove
them at present would be alniost certain
death to whoever undertook the job.
Last year it, was our painful d'uty to pub
