Field minstrels, was in the city today
looking after the advance work of his
tborr. Mr. Atkinson spoke of the ex
periences that organization had with
yellow fever during its tour of the
couth this season.
"Notwithstanding the fact that we
were handicapped by quarantine re
tt riot Ions the show played to the heav
iest business in its history. While
many companies were held up along
the line waiting for advices for future
movements and actually disbanded on
account of quarantines, the Field show
went merrily on and filled all original
dates. It was the first attraction to
venture into Mobile and New Orleans

city while the yellow fever was still in
vosue. I will admit that I was a little
apprehensive, but my fears were soon
dispelled when I got within the infect
ed districts. Street pianos were mak
ing merry children were playing in
the streets, the shops were open, and
there was no evidence of the dead
march and crepe as might have been
anticipated. I was informed t'aat build
ing was normal during the summer
months and heavy real estate transfers
were recorded. While in the infected
districts, one had no realization of the
presence of yellow fever; to realize
this fact one had to be out upon the
rail up against the ubiquitous quaran
tine official. These bobbied up at ev
