KENTUCKY WEATHER IlKL'OIW.
ONE CENT.
New Yeiik, Sept. 10. New that Ast Ast
atle cholera has developed among the
dwellers of this city, caeh man may ask
his neighbor, Well, what of It?
ThoBplrltef the question would show
no mero than that the speaker had,
himself, mustered the elementary truths
touching this dlsease, which 1ms been
se carefully iterated and reiterated by
the responsible portion of the press
during lrt'any days past The question
tWeuU Indicate, that the speaker fully
understood that the cholera Is neither
contagious nor Infectious within tlie
common incaulngs attached te theso
words. In this sonse, It Is te use the
language of Prof. Vlrchew, less danger
ous than diphtheria.
This expreden Implies no overconfl everconfl overcenfl
dbnee," It lies within each individual's
power ve ossure his own personal safety
nlmnst bevend a nerad venture. He
has but te drink no water and milk cx cx
cept such as have been thoroughly
boiled, and te cat no feed that has net
been thoroughly and freshly cooked;
he will abstain from butter and cheese,
and he may then possess his soul In se
renity. Cholera will pass him by. Ever
since the Moravia arrived In pert, as
the harbinger of the dreaded plague,
Btate and loculefllelals have been strain
ing every nerve te prevent Its gaining a
foothold In this city, and being spread
by various channels te the country at
large.
The health officials have been strict
even te severity; but while all were
looking hcaward, and while prepara
tions wcre made te ropel an ndvnnce
fr6m across the water, It has quietly
made its presence felt in our midst, and
ilve corpses te-day mark Its advent.
" Hew did It get In? is the question en
every one's lips. The health officers'
faces were puzzled expressions when
asked te solve the problem. Disinfect
ants have been used with lnvlsh hand
both nt Quarantine and In the city;
baggage has been disinfected; passen
gers have been detained, even en
healthy ships, and In the city stringent
rules of cleanliness have been laici down
aiid acted upon.
The houses of the dead are net under
quarantine In the sense of being shut
up, or their tennnts belng prohibited te
go and come when and where they
please. Hut nene go or come without
the knowledge of the doctor en duty.
The medical 6entlnel never lees sight
for many hours at a time of his charge.
Ills instructions nre most minute, and
his duties in a tenement full of people
are. most arduous. He is te register
in the first place, under orders of
his superior, the name and age of
every person In the house, what they
work at and where. If they go out of
the house, he is te keep the sharpest
kind pf n lookout for the first symptoms
of dierrluca trouble, and upon its ap ap
pcaranue put the patient te bed, keep
him there and prescrlbe for hhn while
hurrying word nreund te the health
beard office. The closets In the house
or In the yard arote be his special care.
The disinfecting corps will be en the
go from house te heuse all day, and he
is te direct their operations. All closets
in the yard where a case of cholera has
occurred must be disinfected twice
daily. , .
The doctor must search every room in
the house every few hours te see that it
Is kept in order, and that no refuse,
garbage, slops or ether offal accumu
lates in cellars, nans or yarus, mm
that the bedrooms nre properly venti
lated. . ,
The persenal cleanliness of every
tenant Is the special care of the senti
nel doctor, under orders from headquar
ters. He must see te it that nene of
them, net even the smallest child, sits
down te his or her meal without first
washing their hands with soap and
cleaning the nails as well.
It Is through the mouth that the germ
of the contagion is always communicated.-
He Is te teach the tenants te
burn all garbage, vegetable refiibeand
old boues in the range when the fire
Is brisk, and let no offal be thrown In
the street- Ne family must move out
of the house- without a written permit.'
Te that extent they are quarantined.
Should new ceses dove-loped in the heuse
these are his Instructions. AU dis
charges from bowels or vomit of slek
persons te be received In vessels eon een
ttilnliiL' disinfecting fluid before empty
ing Inte the closet or privy., All soiled
bedding, bliects, pillow cases, blankets,
handkerchiefs or rags te be removed at
once nnd put into a pail or tub, with
disinfecting flufd boiling het, and after
ward boiled ferhalf en hour. Ne drink
ing vessels or ether vessels used by
patients be used without being thor
oughly cleansed by boiling soap suds.
The Idea Is te overwhelm and stamp
out the dlsease in each house, as was
done with the typhus upon lU flrbt ap
pearance. "
That this could be done was success
fully demonstrated in 1600.
Other catbs nre expected te develop
from scattered centers ei contagion,
but nene in the snine buildings. Thut
Is the Wy the health officers
propose te drlve the cholera from
the city, new It has get in, and If the
citizens will use reason and net get Inte
o.feollsh und. needless panic, they ure
sure, tlwy will Hueeecd, though they by
no means undervalue- the danger. Ev
erything I ready for an attack. The
floating hospital is In order,, and the
proposed cholera camp, the slte of
which U yet the department's becret,
can be occupied en the briefest notice.

All of the morning papers convey the
long dreaded information that cholera has
at last gained n foothold in New Yerk
City. The news reached this city lest
niglit by dispatches received by the health
authorities. One from Hcnltli Offlcer
Prcndcrgast of' Cincinnati summoned the
authorities here te that city te confer
with that gentleman. Marshal Hcilin
ami Dr. C. C. Owens, City Physician,
went te Cincinnati this morning for that
purpose.
It is reported te be the Intention of the
Health officials of Cincinnati te mnke
Maysvllle an outpost. Te place efllcers
here who will beard every train coming
from the East te leek for suspects. By
what right Ohie elllclals can establish a
quarantine station in Kentucky remains
te be seen.
Dr. Prcndcrgast says: "1 will place olH elH
ccrs today at Maysvllle, Ky., Lovelorn!,
()., and Dayton. O. Every railroad will
he guarded and evcry pnssenger exam
ined and his baggage disinfected. Ne
immigrants will be allowed in the city
ami the railroads Hint bring them here
will have te take care or thcin after the
outposts have been reached."
If this means that all people coming
West en the C. and O. who nre liable te
have cholera nre te he dumped at this
city, then we pretest.
Would it net be a glorious tiling (for
Cincinnati) if Maysvllle would only act
the part of e Geed Samaritan, and tuke
the burden of cholera upon herself that
Cincinnati might he relieved of the
curse.
The Kentucky State Heard of Health
should tnkc the matter in hand and let
these efilcials knew that Cincinnati can't
unload her greasy and pest-ridden immi
grants into Kentucky.
If the Cincinnati people want te co
operate with us and help keep the plague
out of both places all well nnd geed.
But it should be understood that hcie In
Meysviilc, the Maysvllle efllcers will be
boss.
The Southern boundary of Ohie is the
Ohie river and there her jurisdiction
ends.
The best tiling for everybody te de is
te keep cool anil net get excited; be
careful what you cat and of your habits,
keep yourself and your premises clean
nnd abeve all don't get scared. The
cholera is no worse than many ether
evils that surround us all the time.
When Messrs. Hcilin nnd Owens
return this evening we will knew just
what is going te be done for the protection
of Mnysvllle. All may rest nssured that
the scourge will be kept out or Maysvllle
If possible.

The tpwerth League Entertalus.
The pleasant home of Mr. and Mrs. I.
M. Lane was thu scene of a very pleas
ant event last Tuesday evening.
On Hint occasion the Kpwertn ucague
of the Third Sticet M. E. Church enter
tained in honor of the League of
Augusta. Rev. D. P. Helt of Vanceburg
was present and gave a very interesting
and instructive talk which greatly en
thused the Leaguers.
Many expressions of thanks and of ap
preciatien were given te the Committee
of Entertainment for the pleasant and
social time that was had by all.
Lessened Demand fur tbe llurie.
It hns already been stated that the elec
tric meter has displaced about thirty
tiimiqiinil horses In one vcar in the street
railway service. In cities where the
electric railway is in genernl use livery
stables arc going out of the business and
private families are giving up the use of
carriages, partially because of the facili
ties of rapid transit anil particularly for
the reason that It is net pleasant te be
passd by the swiftly moving cars, especi
ally when the risk of a runaway must be
considered. If there Is a lessened demand
f..r thr. imrse. which new seems orebable,
tliere will be a less number raised, as he
is of no economic value except ns a
beast of burden. The land new devoted
te his support may be utilized Ter ether
purposes. The competition or the elec
tric with the steam railway is also significant.
A Lady's Ari-umpllnhmeutR.
Leuutille Times. A knowledge
of
fancy work and the making of pretty
articles rer ornament or use is possessed
by thu majority or women, but rew of
them understand the manufacture of
little, dainty but cheap playthings for
children. Ai tides which cost nothing te
make, and yet furnish a child with se
much amusement. Severnl ladies in tins
city supply themselves with extra pin
money by the sule of rag dells of all
kinds, and these old-fashioned toys are
mero popular with the young folks than
the handsome French dells, purchased In
the toy stores. Mrs, HrecKinridge of
Covington is a perfect genius in this
respect. With a few bits of paper, silks
twl rihlimia. Hit naint. a hammer and a
rutle wooden box she manufactures the
loveliest little dell-houses which arc com
plctc in every tletuil. The liliputinn fur
niture is daintily carved ami upholstered
in silKs ami satins, aim inu uunums
glory of each room is e small baso-biirner
bteve, made of paper and covered with
stove polish. Mrs. Bieckinridgu wishes
te go te the World's Fair and make these
pretty playthings where visitors may see
her at work and order dell-houses of auy
size or price they may wish. Ne child
will be able te resist the temptation te
possess one, nnd the low price at which
they nre sold will enable nearly every
youngster te gratify his or her wish.

Washington, Sept 15. At the state
department It is stated that an impor
tant proclamation will issue from that
department seen. In ether official
quarters it is Intimated that the docu
ment will bear upon the cholera ques
tion. Inasmuch as the proclamation or
stntement will issue from the stnte and
net the treasury department, it may
emanate from President Harrison. In
timations were eflicially made that the
president had In mind a proclamation
which would rcfuse a landing te all
ships having en beard cholera Infected
immigrants, and would turn back te
their ports of embarkation the entire
cargoes of human and ether freights.
It has been a serious question In the
minds of the president, the secretory el
the treasury end ether officials, whether
it would be either lawful or just te re
fuse a landing te American citizens
simply because they sailed from ports
infected with cholera or were passen
gers with theso who wcre suffering
from or had died with cholera. And
yet there was another side te this point
at Issue. Te refuse a landing te heal
thy Immigrants simply because they
sailed from Infected ports or wcre with
infected passengers, and at the same
time admit te landing our own citizens
who were equally subjected te the dan
gers of Infection, would net only be a
violation of the spirit of harmonious
international relations, but an insult
te the countries from which the Immi
grants come.
It Is reported that President Harrison
has contended for Bome days that we
should treat our own citizens, under oil
circumstances, upon the same ground
that we treat foreigners, and that we
must turn back the entire shipload, hu
man 'freight and all, and refuse quaran
tine accommodations or landing, that it
was the only effectual" way te discipline
the steamship companies which are dally
disregarding their premises te cease im
migration traffic at infected ports till
cholera has subsided. It is here be
lieved In official circles that the presi
dent has framed his proclamation upon
this subject and that he will either Issue
it Wednesday afternoon or give the
steamship companies another warning1,
which they can net mistake.
There is no deuty that the president
has determined te put an abrupt step
te immigration from Infected ports at
all hazards, and if net by appeals te the
humanity of the steamship compan
ies, then by the enforcement of extreme
powers nt the hand of the chief execu
tive. it is net impossible that the particu
lar statement or proclamation premised
Wednesday afternoon at the depart
ment of state will relate te the Ven
ezuela trouble, and will be intended te
allay fears of serious trouble, and the
president defer his cholera ' proclama
tion for a day or two for that reason.
Te show hew the people of the west
are standing by the president in his
position towards quarantine and the
cholera, letters are coming daily te the
White Heuse from mayors and ether
officials of large cities of the west,
especially affected by the influx of im
migrants. Among these letters arc
documents from the mayors of Detroit,
Teledo, Cleveland and ether Ohie cities
praising the president for his prompt
action, and urging, if possible, mero
stringent enforcement against immi
gration. They ene and all advise a
total suspension or prohibition of immi
gration and ask him te act at once in
the matter. Letters from mayors in far
western towns especially ask for a
temporary restriction of immigration.
At tbe rcqucstef the president, Att'y
Gen. Miller has given the president an
opinion that under the general immi
gration laws the government has full
power te de whatever it pleases with
Immigration, and thus he has full pow
er te turn them back and net allow
them te land.
