Pt tem aplya A PASING TERROR. The source of the yellow feve that has appeared in New Orleans has been traced abroad, thus show ing what many experts have alwayi contended, namely, that the dlseaM does not originate in this contry The Surgeon-General of the Unitei States a few years ago had a pap.i in one of the magazines, inwhlcl he held that during the century thi yellow fever had appeared in thi! country nearly every year, and wherever the origin was tracable, it could be traced to Cuba or Bra zil or other places to tife soutu of us. If the fever is alien to the United States, as we may safely assume, the thing to do is to keep it out of this country, end to establish such sanitary safeguards that, itf it does get in, it will have no opportunity to spread. Yellow fet er has ap peared in Philadelphia and New York in years gone by, and we be lieve it has even broken out in,Eu. rope. It effected a lodgmebt in Philadelphia because the sanitary conditions there were favorable to it. The South has learned two valua hble lessons in recent years. The first is the value of sanitation, and the second is not to get panic stricken when the words "'ellow fever" are mentioned. There was a time when these words were as carefully elimipated from a Hem phis newspaper as the mention yf any kind of intoxicating drink is forbidaen in the pages of the Ladies Home Journal. An ent)lusiastic jag, erroneously Iabled "a ~aspi ciou, case" once sent several thou sand people out of Memphis, and must have cost the town al least $100,000. The were mention of the disease was once as disastrous to the .buainess of the city as the rifle shot in'the Alps that may jar loose the avalanche. But we of ,the South have out lived all that. Of course there are some people who thrive on "scares," but the, public can no longer be stampeded. Sanitation has made epidemics a thing of the past in this country. " hew Orleans has been criticised in some quarters for not having published to the, wormd under bcare heads the fact that there were several cases of yellow fever in the confines. 'There are a number of good rea sonaswhy she shouud do nothuing of the kind. When 'tyhoid fever ap pears in a city, it is never "fea tured" in such a way as to alarm the entire country; yet typhoid is a much more deadly disease thai. 3elloW+ fever. Philadelphia ant other northern cities have thuousauds of cases of typhoid every year; at most enough to make it epidemic; but it is not mnane the news sensa tion of the day. Why should the press ana the authorities of new Orleans make any more of yellow fever than Philadelphia makes of typhoid, or some uther city does of small pox. T'here is hardly any more danger of yellow fever beuoting epidemic anywhere in the outhi than there is of typhoid becoming epidemic i the North; indeed there is halirdly a. much. We hale learned thor oughly the lesson of sanitation, and we no longer fear the once dreaded visitant. We should therefore treat yellow fever just as we would any other undesirable disease. Whenever it appears we should be ready to battle with the best weap ons .lat sanitation cait provide. Least of all should we fear it. There is no need to court it, of course; but no man should let the mere name of the thing inspire him-with terror. as far as Memphis is concerned, the alert Dr. Joned is on deck, and it it should ever become necessary, ne may be relied on to do every thing to keep the disease out. Tihe mosl, troublesome thing about the apparances of the disease in New ·Orleans seems to be the quarantines. --lempais Appeal. William, K.

Theodore H. P.rice, the cotton broker and speculator, who, fought Mr. Sully so streniously two years ago when the price of the staple was forced above 15 cents a pound, is now predicting 15-cent cotton, based on his asserted belief that the 1905 crop will not much exceed 3,000,000 bales. He says not only is the acreage much reduced from last year, but the yield is much poorer per acre, and the season is a mohtb 3ehind last year. It his promises ate sound, cotton will go to a higher price this year than it did in 1903.
