3 Three Men e Cuttintl Affray at Gossport
Nulphur Donated for Fumigation.
Lake Charles, La., Aug. 19.-In an t
s affray at Stout's mill at Gossport,
n between three men, one of the partici
4 pants was badly carved. The trouble I
a grew out of the arrest of one of the
n men the day previous for striking a
h boy, and for which he was lined 1
n $5. The trouble was renewed at the
o mill the next day and Althus Smith
was severely wounded.
r The board of health has received
letters from the Union Sulphur Co.,
h in which it tenders the city all the sul
s phur needed for fumigating purposes,
s free of cost.
- Advices received here state that E.

n Company at Bon Ami, ordered six
g tons of sulphur of the Union Sulphnr
fI Company, and in opening his mail in
due course of time found a receipted
bill for the shipment. The Union Sul

re tude of this section for the material
way in which it is making its friend

GIVE TOO MANY FREE RIDES. Th
Stht
Freight Oficias Mlust ('at Down OnOnth
Passes.
Too much free transportation has the
been given to secure freight and pas- the
senger business, in the opinion of ex- fo
ecutive officers of the western railways.
At a recent meeting they agreed to ca
stop their freight officials from giving
any more passes or reduced rates to or
shippers, and decided that their pas- e
d senger officials should hold a meeting
co
- for the purpose of reaching an agree
- ment not to make any more concess
f ions in order to secure business.
w Although the act to regulate traffic of
'n specifically prohibits the issuance of
*1 free or reduced rate transportation in
order to influence traffic, it is an open
secret that in order to secure what is at
1- known as the party business, such a. B
ýn delegates to the annual meetings of the
n- Epworth League, Order of Eagles and
t. the Grand Army of the Republic, the

'd routing of parties of delegates. The b:

he not be repudiated by the passenger a
officials, no matter what orders may re
Sbe issued by the executive officers. ;

MEANING OF FOCI.
Explanation of a Term Now iut Cont
mon Use.
The Daily States thus explains the
meaning of focus and foci, as applied
to yellow fever:
Focus and Foci-Focus: Figura
tively(with a consciousness of the tal
classical Latin meaning), a central or Sel
gathering point at or about which
anything is concentrated: a center (in
referring to prevalent conditions of
yellow fever), a point at which a case
or cases of fever have been developed, me
in the connection now spoken of. for
Foci: Plural of focus.---Houston pa
Post. al
Since the prevalence of yellow fever
reports there has been much discus
sion as to the meaning of the word sh:
"foci" in the daily reports. All sorts ti
of explanations have been given and of
e some opinions have been expressed
which called for the flash of a betting sec
roll. Instead of appealing to diction
aries, curious enquirers asked of any a
r they met, thus spreading the discus
sion, and it has raged for several
days past, especially where the night- al
s hawks gather, with nothing to do but th
' indulge in such talk. as
Fqr the past few days the reports tir
have contained the expression "sub
foci.''
The sickness now prevailing in New
Orleans has spread from one common
point. That point is located near the
r French market, and it is the original
s "focus"' of the disease. With the mi
n spread of the fever new cases developed
at other points and they were sent out
as "foci," the meaning being that ev
ery case was regarded as a new focus. ni
This was changed lately for the reason
that either directly or indirectly all of 'i
n the cases were found to be traceableto
rs the original point of infection, and
s- then reports now state them as "sub- a
K_ foci,"meaning that they are all trace
able to the original focus, though the ml
cases are widely scattered.
If New Orleans be regarded as the
to original focus, should the fever de- n'
s- velop at some point not traceable to
New Orleans, then it would also be
e come a focus. and the pair of towns
would he properly termed ''foci.''
But so long as the people speak only
fie of New Orleans the term will be "sub
of foci.''

MILITIA SHAM BATTLE.
Will Take Place in Opelousas Early in El
September.
Major A. I). Stewart and ('ol. J. J.
Thompson are working hard to pu1111 ('
ofi a sham battle between six compan- in
ies of the State National Guard. to I
take place in Opelousas sometime in lv.
September. or as soon thereafter as e
the quarantine situation will permnit.
Theaffair is an assured fact the only tht
qI uestion now is the time it will be held.
While in ;Alexand(ria these gentle- pa
men foresaw that the friendly rivalry I ser
for honors between the different com- ful
panies was so intense that it threw out be4
a promise of another meeting before
the next encampment, and working on
this supposition, suggested that a
sham battle be held in Opelousas some 1(1o
time in September. To this the boys in,
of six companies at once agreed, and m(
the Baton Itouge company. which won th(
second honors, at once challenged the he
victors, the Lake Charles company, to sil
a competitive drill for the banner,
which the Lake Charles boys accepted. s
Major Stewart has since heard from sp
all of them, and they are anxious if
that the sham battle should come off
as soon as possible, and at the same
time the competitive drill.
