The news from the South is u dark cloud
withuut a silver lining.
Caiiio is all right. There is not one case
of yellow fever within our coq-arute limits,
and wo Wlieve there is no probability that
tho diseaso will get a footing in our city.

John Obcrly, father of John II. OWrly, of

Jlr. Obt-rly was u near and dear fiiind to

learned to love him lor his kindness of
licnrt and sterling qualities. He was a
good man in every sense of the word. His
memory will live with us as long as life
shall last. Peaee to his ashes."
The Lord helps those who help them
selves, and He will help Cairo to escape
tho yellow fever if Cairo helps herself by
an efficient quarantine. Strictness for ten
days is needed. If wc can keep the yellow
monster away ten days longer Cairo will he
safe from all danger. Let us therefore
guard our quarantine.
The matter ol The IJim.etin U short
this morning. Mr. T. Nally, the editor,
and a printer or two are sick but not with
yellow fever. They will, we have no dnul it,
be at their posts again in a few days; but in
the meantime, being unable to obtain per
sons to fill their places, we shall be com
pelled to run short on reading matter.
The most seductive antidote for yellow
fever is the following from the Fort Worth
(Texas) Democrat, of August 10th, 1S7S:
In 1830 an American Commodore gave a
citizen of Houston an antidote for yellow
fever. It was a tcaspoonful of white mus
tard seed in a drachm of pure whisky .taken
three times a day. The citizen says this
will prevent any one taking it, and he has
passed through half a dozen epidemics
without himself or family having it.
AVe are admonished by the Good Book to
care for the stranger within our gates; but,
under present circumstances, we ought to
be careful that fi-w strangers get within
our gates, and it might be a mercy to our
selves if we required some of those already
within to get without. South of us a most
terrible epidemic is raging, and our city
has been threatened by its fearful presence;
but we have been thus far saved from the
affliction. Not one citizen of Cairo lias yet
fallen a victim of the yellow fever, and if
we can -get over ten more days all danger
will by that time have passed away. Our
quarantine should therefore be made com
plete. It should be made iron-bound.
Such a quarantine may impose hardrhips
upon individuals and injure business. But no
matter. The future of Cairo hangs on the
events of the next ten days. If we keep
the fever from our doors, our city will be
recognized everywhere as an epidemic
proof location. It would therefore 1 a
great benefit to Cairo if an embargo of ten
days were established here. Better no bus
iness for a week or two, than a little busi
ness during that time and an uncertain fu
ture for our city. "Guard your quarantine
and you will save your people,"' says Dr.
Blackburn in his telegram from Hickman
to Dr. Dunning. AVe believe the advice
should be acted upon. Our quarantine
should be guarded.
The Howard Association of Memphis
have bad printed and distributed what is
called ttie Creole Treatment of yellow fever.
It has been indorsed by several of the best
physicians of Memphis and is practiced by
'some of them. It is as follows:
1. If the patient be taken with fever
immediately (one or two hours; after a meal,
give an emetic of mustard, salt und warm
water, one tcaspoonful each of former to
tumbler of last.
2. If the patient has eaten more than
three hours previously, give a dose of cas
tor oil. If the attack commences with ir
ritable stomach, substitute a dose of calo
mel and soda for oil, five grains for children,
ten grains each for adults.
3. If the skin is dry, give hot foot baths
repeatedly, until perspiration is induced.
4. If the skin is very hot, whether dry or
moist, sponge the arms, breast and legs un
der the covering witli whisky and water
5. Tiie first night of attack give an in
jection of tweuty drops of laudanum or
Battley's sedative 6houM there be much
0. If the stomach remain irritable, ap
ply mustard plaster; if the irritability
continues apply fly blister.
7. If the uriue is scanty give watermelon
seed tea freely half a teaeupful every
hour. It can be taken iced if preferred.
8. Keep a cool cloth on head, if hot' or
0. Nothing but warm or cold tea green
orango leaf or sagt allowed sparingly,
with small nellets of ice occasionally or a
mouthful of cool water, for tho first three
10. After the fever has entirely disap
peared, chicken broth, beef tea, milk, to be
given in small quantities, gradually increas'
ing sumo as convalescence advances.
11. Tho patient must not be allowed to
sit up for a week, (uso bed-pan) nor take
any solid food whatsoever for ten days
after tho attack.
13. No one should bo allowed to enter
tho room while sick but tho physician Bnd
The colored men of Alexander county
met in council last Friday night to adopt a
plan for "placing their claims beforo the
people." AVhat are their claims? Ono is,
that they are entitled to moro offices than
they obtain from tho liepublicmv party,
They voto the Republican ticket with great
regularity, and get nothing tor their
trouble. They don't like this, and hence
the protest of Friday night. But they must
bo patient. They must wait. After a
while the Democratic party wilj obtain
power, ami then Kihold how the
lion and the lamb will lie down together
.how the Democrats will fellowship with the
negroes who vote ! AVado Hampton has set
the example in South Carolina, and it will
become epidemic. The Democratic party
will rise up and tell Africa how comely she
is, and how pleasant are her ballots thrown
for correct political principles. And what
is more, the Democratic party will permit
Africa to put her fingers into the political
flesh pots of the Republic.
AViies We Demouai.ize the. Stomach
By excesses or imprudence in eating, we
cann.it hope to escape the consequences for
any grenj length of time. The most robust
digestion must succumb to abuses of that
important function. But supposing that
we have been foolish enough to enfeeble
the stomach, is the damage irreparable! By
no means. The dyspeptic has only to do
two things to insure his ultimate recovery.
First, he should adopt an easily digestible
diet. Second, he should use with regularity
and persistance Hostettcr's Stomach Bitters,
the leading gastric invigorant of the age.
The multiform symptoms of dyspepsia, ami
the almost invariably attendant disorders,
biliousness nud constipation, will assuredly
cease to persecute the sufferer if the aliove
advice is attended to. AVho that, has suf
fered the torments that chronic indigestion
intlicts will neglect to take advantage of a
remedy which, if the most positive evidence
of the medical profession and the public is
to le received with due credence, is an ab
solute specific for the complaint.
Several parties from Cairo arrived in the
city to-dav, having fled the town ut the
junction ot two rivers owing to fear of yel
low fever. It is stated, howevor, that there
is no possibility of fever in that locality.
Two Noted Grave Rubber. Our
readers will remember the account given in
these columns of the robbing of the grave
of the Hon. Scott Harrison, in Ohio, last
May, the lxnly being found in the dissect
ing room of the Ohio Medical College.
Public indignation justly brands any man
as a scoundrel who will nib the grave of
the dead. But there are two noted grave
robbers in the country, so far from Wing
the subjects of the peo
ple's wrath, are universally lauded
for their virtues. The reason is plain.
AVhile the farmer class steal the dead lxnlies
of our loved ones to submit them to the dis
secting knife, tiiese only rob the graves to
restore the living victims to our hearts and
homes. Their names Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery and pleasant Purgative
Pellets are household words the world
over. The Golden Medical Discovery cures
consumption, in its early stages, ami all
bronchial, throat and lung affections.
Pleasant Purgative Pellets are the most val
uable laxative and cathartic.
