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
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
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
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
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.

King Edward receives daily no
less than 3000 newspapers and 1000
r letters, while the Czar and the Ger
B mah Emperor receive each from 600
to 700 letters and appeals. The
I King of Italy is troubled with about
B 500 and the Queen Wilhelmina with
from 100 to 160. . All these, how.
I ever, are distanced by the Pope,
who holds first place, with from 22,

jnveutor of the pocket watch. Hen

accused him of witchcraft because
of the many hours he spent in soli

that he took refuge at the home of
a married daughter, where he quick
ly disposed of one of his persecutors
by soundly thrashing him.' Because
of this he was sent to prison, and
there be perfected his invention. .A

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.
