The latest news obtainable in
regard to yellow fever in New

t fifty cases to date with 17 now
under treatment and 6 deaths.
The authorities are using every
means known to science to re
strict the disease to the infected

Let Everybondy Help.
Mayor Mouton and the City
Council have begun a vigorous
campaign for a thoroungh clean
ing up of the city, realising that
every precautionary measure
- possible should be taken in view
I of the fact that yellow fever ex
ists in New Orleans, and, from
Dr. Souchon's statement of 17
oases and 6 deaths, oa asevere
type. In their efforts to put the
city in the best sanitary condi
tion possible, they should have
the prompt and. vigorous co
operation of the .citiens. And
while we do not consider the
situation alarming at., present,
yet as an act cf prudence we
should take every measure to
prepare for all contingencies.
Every * householder should at
once thoroughly clean and dis
infect his premises, drain all
stagnant water, and either
screen his cisterns or put a
small quantity of coal oil n them.
Get the town clean, get rid of
the mosquitoes and we will then
be in splendid shape to wsrd of
yellow fever. The Boa. _1 of
Health as will be seen by perusal
of proceedings in another column
have taken steps to keep out the
disease and they can be relied
on to do their best in every way
Sto protect us. But we must
help and help by cleaning up
