Coleman Newman, of 31 Smith street, Brooklyn,, is anxious that the people of the country shall know of what he claims to be- a positive preventive of yellow fever and all contagious diseases. Mr. Newman says that a bag worn over the chest containing a small lump of asafoetida, a lump of camphor and a pod of garlic will stave off all infectious and conta gious diseases. He says this pre ventive has always been used ,in Poland, with great success, even being efficacious in the time of'the black plague. Mr. Newman says it is well worth trying and that it will be found to be the means, should fear of an epidemic prevail, of reassuring the people. Objec tion might be made to the combi nation of odors, but he says they will not be offensively noticeable if the ingredients are carefully in cased in a muslin bag. T''o CURE YELLOW FEVER. A correspondent of one of the London papers asserts that no fatal results need be feared from yellow fever If the person attacked, as soon as the symptoms appear, takes a tumblerful of olive oil with the juice of a lime squeezed into it. This dose should be repeated till vomiting and purging ensue. ,,'his is Infallable in checking the virulence of the complaint, says the letter writer, , "and a speedy convalescence Invariably follows. I have not only pyoved its efficiency personally, but have witnessed its complete succeys in dozens of cases, both in Cuba'and South America." CREOSOTE SMOKE KILLS MOSQUITO. Will H. Price, of Biloxi, Miss., says: It is a well-known fact that creosote smoke played an import ant part in the yellow fever of 1878.-- Walter Foster, section boss of this place, kept a pile of rotten' logs in his yard, sprinkled with creosote, burning all the time, night and day, and his family was in the house, with yellow fever all over the town, but Foster's family never took the fever. 1 took my family to a!house on Choukltabuff river, above Black well's, my three children, just over the fever; my wife, two young ladies and apboy, and ten gallons of creosote. I kept the smoke up, as Mr. Foster did in Biloxi, and i none took the fever. Worms, bugs, flies, mosquitoes, r spiders, all got the smoke and died. rLPILne IN THE SHOE. SA correspondent of the Ti'mes ' Democrat says: As an ounce of preventativeies worth a poubd -of cure, I'thouglt It worth while to call your attention to a simple reme 7 dy for keeping the mosquito away trom the person. My informant obtained his intormataoh from a doctor who practiced in ,Havana, Cuba, for a number of years be fore sciences discovered that Cthe stegomyla transmitted the disease of yellow fever.' The remedy. is so'simple that it (may be laughed at. It is this: Take about halt a small teaspoonful of flower of sul phur every morning, and put in the beel of the stocking. The smell arising from 'the same will keep the mosqu:to away from the per son. I will frankly .say that 1, and numerous others of my ac quaintances, have tried0it for the past three days, and find nothing offensive i . Wly THE NEGRO Is IMMUNE. Baton Rouge, La., Aug. 6. Some of the.physicans of the city present a novel and plausible theory in regard to the negro anti the yel low fever. It is a well known fact that the negro is less apt to take ibe yellow fever than a white person. Few negroes ever take the fever, and this fact, it'hs generally supposed, is due to the peculiarities ot the race. Now the theory is adval ieed that the reason the negro. seldo m takes the fever is due to the fac t that he is always fighting the r losquito. The negro has always wa-: ed war fare on the stegom'yia and theother numerous breeds of the mosquito. Whether he has a but in the field or a shanty in the city, the negro Jis always smoking the mosquito' out of the house. Now, the theory is advanced by some of the physi cians of the city that this fact is the t cause of the negro's apparent im 1 munity from yellow fever. a ---- SEducation For Boys. Walter L Colhy in Good House keeping gives some good advice to boys and boy's parents in which he very wisely says: "The question frequently arises es to the wisdom of sending to a boarding school boys who are not intending to prepare for college, but who really need a more com plete education than their surround ings have permitted, especially those reared in rural districts where the educational advantages are very limited. There are boss in towns and manufacturing places who are to remain with their fathers on the farmu or in the shop (and we wish this number might increase) and learn to carry pnithe business which their fathes have established. For these the boarding school offers many special advantages; the change of scene and companionship, an enlarged sphere, new ideas and a respect for the rights of others which iG nowhere better cultivated than in a well regulated school of this kind. Parents or guardians may feel that this is a waste of time, but we are confident that it is not; for there is no walk in- life where a well educated and cultured man is not recognized as superior to those who lack these qualities." We have two fine boarding schools for boys, St. Joseph's College and Dixon Academy, with constantly increasing attendance. "Didn't that patient respond to your treatment?" asked the doc ior's wife. "Not yet," replied the physician, "and I've sent him three bills!"-Yokers Statesman. CRAVE TROUBLL FOlSEEN. It needs but litttle foresight to tell that when your stomach and liver are badly affected grave trouble is ahead, unless you take the proper medicine for your disease, as Mrs. John A. Young, of Clay, N. Y.. did. She says: "1 had neuralgia of the liver and stom ach, and my heart was weakened, and I could not eat; I was very bad for a long time; but in Electric Bitters I found just what I needed, for they quickly relieved and cured me."
