The Chattanooga doctors believe there
will be no epidemic in that city on account
of its la'itude.
The venerable Rev. Dr. George White of
Memphis comes to town daily to look after
the needy of his parish.
Motto for those who are going to give
aid lo the fever-stricken citica of the south:
"He^ivea twice who gives quickly."
Memphis Appeal: Memphis thanks God
for the milk of human kindeess which is
(lowing for her in every city of the land.
The Louisville Courier-Journal calls for
a collection of $10 in each of the one hun
dred churches of that city for the fever relief
Memphis hacks have nearly all been in
fected with yellow fever by being used for
carrying corpses to the grave.
now seldom used.
Vicksburg Herald: There is no doubt but
that the stagnant sheet of water in front of
Vicksburg, yclept a lake, is a fruitful source
of the existing sickness.
New Orleans: In relation to the dead fish,
which literally cover the water of the new
basin from the Magnolia bridge to the head,
the mayor instructed Administrator Diamonc
to employ six men with skiffs and seine to
gather the fish and burn them with sulpbor
at a point on the banks of the basin away
from any habitation.
Memphis Appeal: Within the past six
days three persons have brought yellow
fever upon themselves by indulging in
drunkenness. After a drunk the stomach
and entire system is out of order, which
places the unfortunate inebriate in a too
favorable condition to take the fever. Above
all acts of imprudence, avoid drunkenness
Memphis Appeal: The Howard associa
tion complains that merchants are charging
them full rates for such articles as they find
it necessary to purchase for the sick or indi
gent. We suggest that cost price would be
a sufficient compensation, and ask, in behalf
of the fever patients and the poor, that that
be established as the price to the Howards
The Shreveport quarantine is the most
stringent imaginable. No strangers are al
lowed to enter the city unless they have
papers to show that they have not been in
an infected district within twelve days.
There are frequent complaints of needlessly
severe enforcement of the regulations, but
The Shreveport Times says We are play
ing for a mighty stake and an occasional
violation of strict rules of the game is ad
New Orleans Picayune: The pastors of
the various Presbyterian churches elsewhere
invite their congregation to meet on Thurs
day, the 29th inst., in their respective placei
of worship and observe the day in special
humiliation and prayer, in view of the pre
vailing sickness. It is not unlikely that
this call will unite other denominations in
the same sacred duty, and make the day
selected one of general observance through
out the city.
Mr. George Bain, president of the St.
Louis exchange, mentions one effect of the
epidemic: "The Texas trade from the north
and east will now be forced to come through
St. Louis, and this is a very considerable
fact. It is my opinion that the yellow fever
will increase our trade with Texas several
millions-of dollars, and that as soon as the
plague is ended, business on the Mississip
pi Viver will be very brisk, and make up for
all the present stagnation. The steamboats
are now suffering most, but this is their dull
season anyhow, and there will be plenty of
time for them to make up all their'loss«.s.'r
Capt. Scudder, president of the Anchor
line of Mississippi steamers, cays: "The
trade of the whole Mississippi valley is
brought to a standstill. The effect is felt
everywhere. No article of commerce is
now moving dnwn the river. It looks very
gloomy for the south. They have had so
many misfortunes that we had hoped a day
of prosperity was opening out before them.
The present condition of things will result
in a great scarcity of provisions in all the
couotty contiguous t» the river, and prices
will undoubtedly go up to a high figure. It
is said there is class of merchants having
full stocks, who will take advantage of the
circumetances and put up the prices of pro
Vicksburg Herald Dr. D. W. Booth,
physician charge of the city hospital,
finding it impossible to procure nurses,
went to the Rev. Mother Francis De Sales,
of the sisters of mercy, and asked that the
sisters take charge. With that self abnega
tion which is a distinguishing characteris
tic ot this holy order, his request was im
mediately complied with, and at the present
writing the sisters no doubt are engaged in
their labor of love. The Howard associa
tion will hold a meeting this evening to
further this good work undertaken by the
sisters. There are twen^-eight of the sis
ters h6re now. Four have been sent to
Meridian and two to Jackson.
New Orleans Democrat: It seems that
among the Italians there exists an indispo
sition to accept the services of the physi
cians provided by the Howard association.
In one case, where these services were taci
ty accepted, the friends of tbe patient de
clined to administer tbe remedies prescrib
ed and provided for gratuitously on the
score that "that was not tbe way sick peo
pie wore treated in their countrr." In an
other case, where the prescription had to be
filled at drug store, tbe messenger wanted
to know the character of the remedies
when told wbatjhty were he declined to
accept them, and ordered other drugs,
which, mayhap, acted fatally. Tbe patient
in this cue, as well as in the one first men
tioned, died. Doubtless, if theae people
were visited and advised by their intelligent
countrymen, the reaalt could only be bene
ficial. Something should be done lo pre

couraged. lie is confident that he can con
struct an apparatus that will indicate the
presence of anv considerable body of ore
containing gold and silver as is likely to be
the case-in a silver bearing region if any
ore at all is found. His theory is that in
large bodies of ores of the precious metals
there is such a mass of metals of various
kinds, aa iron and copper pyrites and other
such metals and minerals as accompany a
large vein containing much silver ana gold,
that there will be magnetic and electric
currents mnch stronger and p-ompt
and active than in a region where there is
nothing but plain granite, slate, sand or
limestone. Wlieer there is some show of
ore his apparatus will be some affected, and
where there is a large amount of ore the ap
paratus will be strongly agitated. By ob
serving the effects of the currents in the
bonanza mines in the presence of large
mases of ore he expects to get a start, or a
foundation as it were, for an apparatus that
will be of great use to miners in searching
for bonanzas of the prtcious metals. He
will probably make some additional tests of
some of the mines to the eastward. He is
sure that an instrument to do the work may
be made, though it will be probably be re
