Mexican Herald: The. city of
Mazatlan is paying dearly for its
long neglect of. the only means of
preserving the health of communi
ties. The hasty resolve to clean tlie
drains and disinfect the noorer
quarters is tantamount to a confes
sion that these duties have been
slighted. The houses of the poor,
where infection has made them
perilous to the public health, are to
be burned, and the owners com
Mazatlan has its poorer quarters
or "barrios," where the slum popu
lation, consisting of Chinoe coolies,
Lfishermen, and thc.waifs and strays
of a modern town, has congregated
and where disease has always been
iuick to break out. The authorities
have not attended to the poor peo
pie as they lould have done. It is
the old storjT, and the same may be
said of most cities, even in this
boasted twentieth century. Wher
cver those are slums, foul and
jl dirty tenements, swarming popuia- j
jtion unfurnished with water in
-proper quantities, and sanitary con
veniences 'unknown, tiiero will di

A MEXICAN PLANT.
The canagria is a plant that grows
wild and' abundantly on the sandy
plains of the northern states of
Mexico, and contains a powerful
tannin, and a coloring principle
which gives the hides a peculiar
color. This plant has not been ex
ported in quantity, hut in view o
its valuable qualities, the depart
ment of foment having a consider
able quantity of the roots prepared
for shipment to the Mexican consuls
in Europe and the Mexican com
mission for the St. Louis exposition
has been specially charged by Secre
tary Fernandez to collect extensive
samples for the Mexico exhibit.
This canagria plant will probably
