Ersr'aUlobe-llemaetatln Uefense of Himself with. Kef ere nee to Ills Aiate aiorriese with JUrsj. Jin ver. From the St. Lou'8 Globe-Democrat of tbo twelfth the following explanatory letter Is taken: "I rr elved the sad Intelligence through the morning halters of tbe untimely death of my wife, r e Marga ret Mayer, late of Memphis. It Is w.Ui extreme re luctance that I am forced Into nn explanation erd -tense of my conduct In relation to iliei eceas 1. I would prefer to let the dee 1 rest were It not for tho mlsstataraents made throu-h the Assocla' d Press repoiis and special correspondonr). Now to the facts. I amrep'esented as being a not d politician and president of the lata Memphis Gayoso gas company. I Question the prop.. el y of a per son setting lot.n inelr own claims to tlie considera tion of the public, and would not unless assailed by untiuthful reports. I have Uvr d In Memphis for twenty years. 1 nave niled vai.ous positions of tiost and honor, amor? them clerk of the law and crim inal cor.s. 1 organlz'd and push: 1 through to success the Gayoso gas company, an rarrotr, 4ed stuggle of five years, unparalleled in the hlstoi pt the litigation of Tenne. x Df.-ing these years I waa president of the Memphis Jocsey club. I served two terms in the board of aldern en. My last oDIclal position, which was a little over a year ego. was that of chairman of the Democratic cornly executive committee. Reference, is me le to my abandoning my laniuyoni.ngine epiuein'c or Ji, aim tuetr toss. This Is not tije. I published my defense at the time, and wl'l not reopen that question, except as to the pai. that retards to my family, which charges that my w.fe and children tiled ot yellow fever. Two of my children fo here at school at the Visitation academy. Now, as to my lste wife, It was and is well-known to many In St Louis that when I left Memphis at the breaking out of the present epi demic I was eng?-?ed to then Margaret Mayer. After a pleasant couitshlp we were married at Kirkwood, by Esquire Jueobl, on the third day of Hep' ;n.ber, 1 87 , of our own free will and accord. Reference to the esquire will establish this fact. It Is staled that tbe lady had large means left by her former husband and that 1 was the recipient of the same. This Is nott.ue. The lady Informed me at the time of the mairlr ;e that her means were ve.y limited, and it is Immaterial In this connection what her propei.y was. 1 slate In the nioct solemn manner I never n celved one dollar of her money. The fads as to Mrs. Donovan s wcaun ana my conduct toward tier can be veutied 011 oath, lc necessav. by resi dents now of St Louis, who hud aa intimate Knowledge or our relations. 1 namo them as follows: James B. Cook ard wife; Charles Kos loskl and wife, slst ;r and brother-in-law of the d ceased, all residing at 1502 Pine street; also Mr. Thomas P. Haunhan, who resides at the corner of Twentieth and O'Kallon strc its, who knew the lady's liuanclal condition perhaps belter than any I can name. It Is charged In the Assouiuh i p ess re port of tho h' iwMicrm that nothing has lyen heard of me si nee I left Memphis. This statement Is In keeping with the garbled extract of the Memphis coi respondents. It Is well Known In St Louts and Memphis that T have lived here for nearly four months, and this fact Is well known to Memphis ryjple. It will pesstbly be asked what was the cause of the rasli act of my wire. I cannot aud would not say an utiklud word ot my late esteemed wife, but 1 deem 11 iiecessaiy to say on the eve of ber dopauure for Memphis, she begged ot me to conceal our nin .ii're, as It was her Intention to nssuiua her tormer name In carrying 011 and closing out her business In Memphis. This 1 11 fused to consent to, feating that complications would arise under such a stat3 of things. I begged of her to avow her proper name, and that I would not Interfere w.th the disposition of ber prop eity. She most tieremplorlly reiusedto do so. I then refused 10 live v.

Salt! the eminent eaulta ..m re"ully on the subject ot yellow-fever In the south: "I am oet of allpa tteucs with the ter. iblv fatal pseudo-science of men who . tiKiy disease lo cap and gown and easy rockers tn their libraries, spurted auo dt ird, aud there c itch the dut in the air' aud call it 'fever-genus;' moun tains of filth deH",.ng the streets and i.utl -rs of orr clues, while the authiiitle.", like the doeturs, are straying a. ter Inx.sible e-ia:.3 - llseuse conns. I be lieve that In many ot thos-j clue and towns south the disease orl&uiute J In local conditions. In other years yellow fever has occr-red tn localities where It was impossible to charge It to foreign origin, and similar com dlt Ions are foiuid to recur where the conditions favor them. These conditions are moisture, puttifjrlng organic matter and high twipsruture. wneu these niree combine I am com pell ' ' to believe that an outbreak of yellow-fever ts inevitable lit southern cities or poi.3. xeesshi moisture and heat are not pre ventable, but nelt'Jtr can tbey of themselves cause the lever.

Is In every case the starting of the disease the factor ab solutely uecessai, witiiout which the others are harmless." When Dr. Bell was asked what advice he would give to the p- jple of southern cities, he said: "TeUihem toliht dosperatdy for clean streets, houses and yards. I say fi-tit,' beeause my exist ence, as a phjslclan has coi..ncel me that people In general do not realize what cleanliness Is, and that, wueti Uiey am toid, they are likely lo feel odunded, anry ami ol-lin;it .

BiaiBCo FRITSCH'S PRUSSIAN Cough Spp THE LATEST VICTORY OF MEDICAL 8CIENCE. The only existing; remedy for every up, cies of Aoate or Chronic Disease of the Organ of Respiration, and an absolute SPECIFIC FOR CONSUMPTION ! T1IIS all-powerful veKetable prepara tion ezpols from the lungs and air pas stMCen, the mucus and muco-pus produced by pulmonary inflammation, heals the Irritated membranes, and renovates every organ which utilises the breath of L.ife. It contains no stupefrins; poison, nml is in all respects a healthful medi cine. The rapidity and certainty with which it ANNIHILATES A COUGH Is astonishing. Its effects go deeper thnn the mere symptoms of pulmonary dis ease and discharges the cause from the system. Free and painless expectora tion is the mode by which it relieves the lungs, chest and throat from the burdens which oppress them; thus arresting Con sumption and Bronchitis in the germ be fore they reach the more dangerous stages. The emaciated sufferer BATTLING FOR LIFE with the most terrible sconrge of our elf innte will rind Fritsch's Prussian Cough Syrup a potent ally, and will assuredly win I lie light by adhering strictly to thi greut medicine. The - CASE8 NOW ON RECORD In which it has been administered with nit ire success as a remedy for every va riety of malady which affects tho lie npiratory Functions, amount to mora tiuui FIVE THOUSAND at tlie present date, and yet the prepara tiou only in the Infancy of its useful ntM. The great defect of all Cough llruiedies hitherto introduced Is that they are simply expulxory. Hence they nrc ukcIckh; for unless the causes of the ncrrid secretions which are coughed up are removed, and the ruptured, inflamed or maturated surfaces healed and re stored to their natural tone, a cure is impossible. Fritsrh's Prussian Cough Syrup accomplishes these objects. The mucus anil muco-pus which are the con sequence of Lung Lisease, arethrown off by it, while at the same time it soothes and invigorates the weakened tissues. "LIFE FOR THE LUNGS." For conghs, colds, influenza, bronchial tlilllculties, tightnessof the chest .hoarse ness, sore throat, trachitis. inflamma tion of the lungs, difficulty of breathing, pleurisy antl all disorders of a pulmonary nature, it has never been equaled.
