Doctors and Roads.
THE Parish of Plaquemincs, two hundred
miles long, or one hundred miles on each side
of the river, and the river Crequently imiassable
for small boats, presents somewhat difficult
road problems to the people who reside here.
We have excellent doctors and, in fact, quite a
number of them. They are men of unquestion
ed ability and large experience and are now
carrying on a successful practice. Year by
year, as time rolls on, we learn more and more
to appreciate the active, earnest work done in
our parish by our leading medical men. We
often think how willing" the avieraiee man is to
go to his lawyer and ask advice on some legal
point and willingly pay $5 or more for the in
formation which may save him fromrim a grave
error, or may aid nim in making a profitable
transactinn and at the same time an equal may
ment to a doctor \who ca:refuly ."considers all the
symptoms and diagnosys some te:mlOrac.iry illness
and then tells the patient that h . is not serious
ly ill at all, but will be well tomorrow, and
charges $2 to $3 for this inf:rmatson, is fre
quently grumblingly raid.
Happily for us all, however, we are begin
ning to learn that less medicine and more good
advice and frequent, and in fact constant atten
tion of our physicians to our famii.es is just
what we want. Their experience and knowl
edge and advice b:ecome more and more valuable
to us all the time and it is not the medication,
but it is the teaching us how to live in order to
preserve or regain our health that we paytheli
doctors for the.: se'rvices that they render to us.
We only regreet that they are not moreopro nptly
and better paid than they now are.
There is a feature of the medical business in
the Parish of Plaquemines, however, that de
serves very urgent attention and that is the
betterment of the public roads of the parish.
The shell road from New Orleans to Pointe a la
Hacjie that should be soon completed will put in
Typhus Fever.
It has been about seventy-five years
;iite Gerhard, an American _ physicin, ac
'do aenvisicingly, thai -typhus and
"i typhoid fever were not the same. Up 'iI
to three years ago our knowledge of
the disease stood almost exactly where to
it was at the time Gerhard first drew d;
attention to its differences from ty
phoid. In the last three years greater F
advance has been made, largely through si
the work of American investigators,
than in the previous three-quarter; of S
a century. Formerly known as "ship
fever," "jail fever," "c mp f ver,"
:'prison fever" and "famine fever,"
I'typhus brs always been found where
.:large nuribers of men were massed to- S
gether, particularly under unhygenic e
conditions. For years it has bcen r::
garded as extinct in this country, bt:: I
this view has recently been shown toi
be a mistake. Growth of knowk-dge in
this subject has been rapid in the :ct
four years. In 1909 Nicolle provc:!d that j
the infection was found i: tV;e blo'c', c
nmid Anderson and Goldbh.r : er of h:e
United Stites Public He.,alth Sv;rie,'.e
proved that typhus and '"Tabardilo" o~.,tf
iMexico were the sama thing. i;cole,i
:Comte and Consail proved that t. :a -
;ase was tram; mitted by t e lot.,.
`'Rickets by his work in M.xiý,o, .onfirm
<;ed these facts and lost ihs 2i.: i: uo:it:
so. Early in 1912, Anderson -nd Gokd
"'_ ,berger proved that typhui: wa.; th,
same as "Brill's di:e"se," a'.1 was
prevalent in the UTnited StL'.:t a~.: h

While the work of American investi

great. Of the three different groups

The shell road from Algiers to the Cut-off road
at Belle Chasse plantation, which we understand ,li
has been contracted for, will when completed bas
prepare the way for a shell road on the West Ce5
bank of the river from the Cut-off road at Belle tih
Chasse down to opposite the Court House on a
the West bank. That road ought to be con-. rot
sidered now and the people resident within that Ra
section of the parish oh.oulc think earnestly pr
about it and endeavor as soon as practicable to de,
organize for getting the road constructed. The t
experience with Road District No. 1. on the ,,e
East bank and the incidental delays in carrying are
out all the details of organization, arranging Sty
for the sale of bonds, etc., shows how long it all
takes to launch these enterprises and our of
friends on the We:st bank will doubtless exper- co:
ience much of the same delay and yet they need co:
the good roads as badly as do the residents of an
the East bank and the lcetors living therein t1
will assu re theor, of Whf t fct.
iFoni West Pointe a !a i.[ache down to Burnas t
and below, through ihe beautiful orange coun- tt
try, really the finest section of the state of i
Louisiana, a shell road shouli be built. It will
attract thousands of visit:'s to thati section of
the state and it ou.rht to and doubtless will be
made into a rcad district in due time but the
sooner the better.
On the East bakl from Pointe a la Hache
down the maintenance of the back levee has
cost so much and the people living between t
Pointe a la Hache and Fort St. Phillip having a
been so impoverished by so many overflows the a
prospect looks perhaps the least promising of h
improvement at the present time. .Yet we be
lieve that they could stand the cost of a shell
road and once they get it they will wonder how
th ey c&uld have done so long without it. It will
build their country right up just as good roads
do every where and the doctors are quick to ap
preciate the good roads and when we want the
doctors we generally want them to come to us
as quickly as they can and good roads will help
them as well as the other people resident in the
When we reflect on the enormous sums of
Smoney now being appropriated in the northern
- states, recently some 75 millions of dollars in
SNew York state on the basis of an expenditure
during the next ten -ears of some 7 1-2 millions
3 of dollars per year, it is a stunning exhibit of
the confidence tuat the people of that state have. .
in the advantages that good roads will give to
y all the people,. It is evidesnt :ha1tgood ro;d
are as necessary as good roofs over cour i.ousýs.

a their immediate travelng a:nd better reads for

The Allies made their position clear Par
when they said to the friendless am- estate
bassadors of Turkey in London: "Ac- p!ease
cept our terms or we will resume hos
tilities." Turkey is not so confident of ing
the ability of her soldiers to repel any
more invasions of the Allies. She doe same.
not wish to invite further conflict.
Rather would she" lilke peace. She Ad
promises to concede all of the Allies'
demands. But she would not willingly
give up Adrianople. That city is der:r
to the heart of the Mussulman. An
cient-memories sacred to the Turks i
are closely allied with this forutified
stronghold. Therefore Turkey concedes and ii
all the other terms of the Allies. But JOH
reserved the question of the possession
of Adrianople for separate and later
consideration. She hopes that other
concessions may appease the Bulgars
and their brother warriors. And every
Turk prays that Mohammed might help
the Turk and crush the Christian in
Vaders. The Allies have granted more
time to the Turks. It is supposed that
the Turks will not long hold out before
yielding Adrianople. When the ques
tion of the possession of ,&lrianople is
once settled, then peace is almost
surely secured. -
