-Tho apparent death and subsequent
recover)' of W. J. Yost, Esq., certainly
formed a most remarkable occurrence.
Vague intimations of something of the kind
were given several days ago; but by the re
turn of Mrs. Yost from Hot Springs, where
her husband is sojourning, full particulars
wereobtained. To all appearances Mr. Yost
died, andjhis body was prepared for burial.
The continued warmth of the body excited
attention, however, and a council of physic
ians was held. The majority decided that
death had done its work, and that Yost was
a dead man. But one of the minority was
very persistent in a contrary view of the
case, and it was decided to try the effect of
electricity. The roles of a battery were
applied, and in a short time the subject was
restored to consciousness. The prospects
now are that he will entirely recover, and as
a sound man, meet his friends and family

encountered' and yie dangers defied
by the boys from ten to fifteen year3 of age,
who jump on and off thetrains. Yesterday
afternoon a boy probably twelve years of
age, caught the stair railing of the second
passenger coach, and not having strength
of arm to throw himself upon the steps, was
flung head long to the ground, certainly
not more than a foot from the passing
wheels. Tuesday afternoon another, catch
ing the railing of the steps in the same way,
was hurried along nt a speed of eight or ten
miles an hour against the corner of a freight
car that was standing near the main track.
The collision loosened the boy's hold, and
flung him to the. ground, fortunately cut of
harm's way. And thus, almost every day,
is life imperilled. The escapes, in many
instances, are marvelous; but they are
turned off with a laugh, and probably the
same boy will lie tlie first to try to mount

THE HEALTH OF THE CITY.
THREE SfOOETIONS, AND AM, OF THEM
Editor Cairo Itulletln:
I am pleased to observe that the Tax-pay-ers'
association has appointed a committeo
of citizens to take intoconsideration the sub
ject of public health, and to suggest meas
ures that shall seem best calculated to pre
serve and promote it. No higher object or
one of more importauco to Cairo, could en
gage the attention of any citizen; and it is
to be hoped the committee will give the
matter the attention it demands.
I have a tew words to say and they may
cover a suggestion or two that will he of
service to the committee. Before many years
pass by Cairo must have water works. We
can never overcome, in any degree the
draw backs of bad drainage, until such
works arc established. With a vigorou3
stream of water forced through our sewers
ojee a day or twice a week, during the hot,
sickly season, the sewers cculd be kept
clean, and a great cause of sickness he com
pletely and entirely removed. Under pres
ent arrangements, the slops and tilth that
reach our sewers remain there, for weeks
and months at a time, or until carried a-ny
by the sipe w.-;ter or continued heavy rains.
Another suggestion : Stop at once and
for all time the construction of wooden
walks on the ground, and take up all the
walks that are undergoing decay. No
wooden walks should be permitted to
stand, anywhere iu the city, unless they are
sufficiently elevated to admit of a free cur
rent of air underneath. The importance of
this suggestion cannot be over-estimated.
There is. there can be, no doubt in the world
that wooden sidewaTks on the surface, be
come harbors for filth anl vermhn cowr
a deadly damp and mould, and soon, by
their own decay, give out exhalations that
are seriously detrimental to the
health of ail who breathe them.
The sorest prob'.i-m with which the com
mittee will have to deal, however, is fur
nished by the privies. To the poison lur
king in her privy vaults, more than to any
other known caus.-, Memphis owes the
presence of yellow fever among her people
to-day. This is a confessed fact, and one of
which wc, of Cairo, should not become tin
mindful. How to construct vaults, and
howtodeo.l')rixi. and disinfect the contents
of those in use, become questions, therefore,
of the gravest cosoquence. Nothing, in this
particular, should be left to the pleasure,
will or oVtii-n'of the individual citizen.
The council should declare exactly how all
vaults and ventillators should be construct
ed, and the health officer should be charged
with the duty of seeing that 'everybody
yielded exact compliance with such require
ments. During the heated portion of the
ycar,disenfecta:its should be used, freely, as
often as once s month or oftener.
under the direct supervision of that
officer or his sworn representatives.
I have thus thrown out three suggestions
cot at all remarkable for their original
ity; but such as must serve as the very
foundation stone of uny work that has in
view an effective system of sanitation. To
carry out either suggestion would involve
much labor and expense; but any system
that does n"t cover one ot all of them, will
not Le such a system us will l est promote
and preserve the public health, orsur h -will
win the confidence ami support of in
telligent people. Gcay-Hkaud.
