A meeting of the Uiard of health of this
city, was held ou Sunday morning, at the
health olllce, to receive tho report of the
committee apKiinted on Saturday morning.
The object of tho appointment of the com
mittee was to ascertain the probable cost of
establishing a floating hospital to protect
the rity from yellow fever ami other infect
ious and contagious diseases, and to ascer
tain further what the state lxard of health,
the city of Cairo, the United States govern
ment and the Illinois Central railroad com
pany would do in a pecuniary way.
toward the the establishment and stipirt
of such an institution. All the memlH ts of
the committee were- present, but having
Leon unable to gain the information de
sired, they asked further time in which to
make a report. The meeting ndjoumed
alter granting tho rcpiest, to meet again
yesterday morning at nine o'clock.
The meeting was held, but the Umrd was
again placed in a quandary. Dr. Wardner
stated that the state lmrd could not con
tribute more than five dollars per day to the
support of an hospital, while Dr. Waldo was
unable to say what the government would
do, ft9 he had received no' information from
Washington in regard to the matter sis yet.
Mr. Johnson, in behalf of the Illinois
Central railroad, said that the corjvrtiion
was willing to contribute its s!miv. what
ever it might be, to the fund. A hospital
such as projected will Incur an expense of
not less than sere;) ty-five dollar jx-r day.
and the outlook to the 1ani is not encour
aging, though it has nul abandoned the
determination to establish it.
The following resolutions were off-red and

Til K SITUATION AT OltE.NAIU.
From Mr. C. T. Rudd, of tho Chicago,
St. Louis and New Orleans railroad, w ho
received u telegram from Grenada, Miss.,
late last night, we learn the following par
ticulars of affairs ut that place: The dis
ease first made its appearance in the town
on Thursday morning, and up to the timu
of the Bending of tho dispatch, sixty-two
cases had been rc)ited to tho authorities,
with eleven deaths on Sunday. Tho numlier
of deaths yesterday was not known. Tho
people of the town are panic stricken, ami
am fleeing to tho wihmIh and country to
escape tho disease. Tho authorities are do
ing all they cau to check its growth, and
have scut to Memphis for doctors, nurses
and disinfectants. Tho towns around Gren
ada are all quarantining! against her, and
trains on the Chicago, Bt. Louis and New
Orleans railroad run through the place at
their greatest speed. The malady is con
fined altogether Mono part of town. It is
pronounced by the physicians as being a
pure type of yellow fever, notwithstanding
retorts to the contrary being published
throughout the country.
WllEItKTO Sl'KNI) THE SlMMKU. What
man with a family having once Inrn crowded
into some small "sky parlor" in that hotest ot
all known places Saratoga or has beencon
tinually jostled and elliowed by the Metri
politau throng that rolic alternately in dust
and surf at Long Branch, but that has
vowed never again to repair to summer
resorts. And yet with each returning
season comes the query w here shall we go?
Since last season a uew, commodius and
elegant hotel has lieen completed and fur
nished by Dr. R. V. Pierce, in Buffalo, X. Y.,
at a cost of nearly half a million dollars.
No place on this continent possesses
more advantages for the tourist, pleas
ure seeker, or those iu search of rest und re
laxation from the cares of business, than
this. 1st. Its accessibility. 2d. Its cool,
bracing and salubrious climate; the ther
mometer ranging iu summer from 1.") to
degrees Fahrenheit. 'M, the attractions of
the hotel und its environs. All these com
bine to render it the most desirable resort
for those in search of relaxation and rest.
Located on a bluff overlooking the city of
Buffalo, Lake Erie, Buffalo Bay and Niag
ara River as it rapidly winds its way U
tween island and villa to the great Cataract
just lioyond, it affords one of the finest of
American seems. Address all letters r,f in
