New Yehk, Sept 17. Tlie metropolis
awoke Friday morning te a cloudless
sky and a crisp, windy atmosphere.
Theso weather conditions while cholera
is near become dally an clement in the
news Munitien.
Frest l.'i net far away. The days are
already havim' chills by night and fo
yers aj noontide. The crisp air also
braces and ' brightens the population
against fright or that nervous appre
hension thnt in its results invites
the approach of any disorder. There
has net as yet in any locality of the
city been reported uny symptoms of
hysterical panic Kvcn neighbors te
these who have been stricken are com
placent and nct'tpt the situation philo phile philo
Bephlcally, If net even carelessly. The
olement of confidence in constituted au
thority is present. Daily theso who
read the j rints arc learning hew firmly
and closely the various municipal ofll efll
;cials are .co-operating. The street
cleaning department is quick
ened in its efforts, and the
people ebserve the results daily in
the renewed and mere careful scouring
of the streets. Lewer portions of the
dty are being attended te in a manner
jse thorough as te be a novelty te the
;dwellers thereabouts. The odor of dis
infectants Is upon the air. The pun
gent cleanly smell of chlorides comes
from unexpected localities. The indi
vidual is supplementing the official ef
fort, and in homes, elllces and business
places generally precautionary measures
are evident Shoulder td shoulder with
the health beard stand the police, with
IByrncs iin the forefront. Docter and
policeman for the time being arc
brothers. They travel in pairs and
groups. The hospital authorities have
lit 'open their armor of hide-bound
apathy and are alert and co-operative.
jThe coroners, tee, tire grimly active or
ready for activity. All vacations In the
beard arc this morning declared off,
and the entire stalT will wait in con
stant readiness for prompt action If un
happily they are needed.
Tlie funds for protection are daily
piling, up, and people who rend the
morning papers are reassured. In one
fund, that of the chamber of commerce,
Is the sum of $150,000 ever 1 03, 000 of the
total having come in Thursday.
The peer who read feel their anxiety
lessened. The rich, they see, ure ulcrt
with their means and this counts for
geed te the peer mere than te the
wealthy. It is an clement of strength
In the. situation. Then behind all
local effort is the proved strength
of the state and its blunt and
homespun executive. He has said he
"don't care for votes lest or wen by any
action he may take in a case like the
present cholera trouble." The people
all have rcad'ef this, they knew what
he has dene and they feel mera than
ever reassured.
Dr. llyren visited the Bohemia at
quarantine. He reports that there
were li deaths at sea, and that four
cases were removed te Swinburne
Island Friday morning. He reports
that these who died en beard the vessel
died of gastre-intestinal trouble.

new oaueht.
Healthy persons "catch" cholera by
taking into their systems through the
mouth, as in their feed or drink, or from
their hands, knives, forks, plates, tum
blers, clothing, &c, the germs of the dis'
ease, which nre always present In the dis
charges from the stomach and bowels of
theso sick witli cholera.
Thorough cooking destroys the cholera
germs; therefore don't eat raw, uncooked
articles of any kind, net even milk.
Don't cat or drink te excess. Use plain,
wholesome, dicestlblc feed, as indiges
tien and diarrheea favor an attnek of
cholera.
Don't drink unbeiled water.
Don't cat or drink articles unless they
have been thoroughly and recently cooked
or boiled, nnd the mere recent and hotter
they are the safer.
Don't employ utensils in eating or
drinking unless they have been recently
put In boiling water; tlie mere recent
the safer.
Don't ent or handle feed or drink with
unwashed hands, or receive it from the
unwashed bunds of ethers.
Don't use the hands for any purpose
when soiled with cholera discharges;
thoroughly cleanse them nt once.
Personal cleanliness, and cleanliness
of the living and sleeping rooms and their
contents, nnd thorough ventilatien should
be ngiuly enforced, foul water-ciescis.
sinks, faucets, cellars, fcc, should be
avoided, and when present should be
referred te the Health Beard at once and
remedied.
I'ltF.CAUTIONAHY MKASUUHS OK THKAT
MF.ST. The successful treatment and the pre
ventien of the spread of this disease
demand thnt Its earliest manifestations be
promptly recognized anil treated; there
fore don't doctor yourself for bowel com
plaint, but go te bed and send for the
nearest physician ut once. Send for your
family physician.
Don't wnit. but nend at once.
If taken ill in the street, seek tlie near
est drugstore, and demand prompt medi
cal attention.
Don't permit vomit or diarrlianl dis
charges te come In contact witli feed,
drink or clothing. Tliese discharges
should be received in proper vessels ami
kept covered until removed under compe
tent directions. Pour boiling water en
them, put n strong solution of carbolic
acid in them (net less than one part of
acid te twenty of het soap suds or water.)
Don't wear, handle or use any nrticles
of clothing or furniture that ure soiled
with cholera discharges. Pour boiling
water en them or put them into it,
and scrub them with the carbolic
acid solution mentioned above, and
promptly request the Health Beard te re

.Thexe Marriages.
Huntington Herald. There is some
speculation among the expectant public
ns te who will till the vacancy created In
the matrimonial business line by the
death of 'Squire Massie Beasley of Aber
deen. It is te be hoped such an indus
try may drop from sight forever. Frem
eight te ten thousand couples have been
united in illegal marriage by 'Squire
Beasley and his predecessor, 'Squire
Shclten. A great portion of the matches
have been productive of misery. Inno
cent, trusting girls in their teens have
bcuu lured from comfortable- homes by
drunkards, gamblers and debauches,
against the will of loving parents, and
have entered upon lives of wretchedness
from which there is tee often no escape
but death. We have known the tough,
whisky-soaked, tobacco-stained old bald
headed sinner whose soul had been black
ened by a thousand foul escapades, steal
from her happy hemu the child in her
pinafore, nntl usher her into n life of mis mis mis
orable abuse, intolerable suffering and
thankless drudgery. And thore was no
recourse. Out upon such business.
Ohie should wipe this stnin from her es
cutcheon, new and forever.
AND IIK11K IS ANOTIIUlt.
" It is about time that Maysville shut
down ou the runaway marrying business.
A man named Harrison Bradford is under
the Impression that he has fallen heir te
tlie Inte 'Squire Beasley's business nnd is
marrying peeple light along. It does
net appear that he has any legal authority
te make the tie binding, and he Is likely
te be the cause of a great deal of unliap
plness and misery."
Part of the above is nil right, but would
the gentlemnn who wrote in for The Ath

Nfav YenK, Sept 17. A mysterious
box, which Is believed te contain an in
fernnl machine, has been received by -Gov.
Flower at his cholera headquar
ters In the Windser hotel. The nature
of the contents was fortunately discov
ered before any harm was done. The
box was followed up by a letter, the
contents of which indicated that it was
inspired by the same disordered brain
which planned the mysterious machine.
The manly stand taken by the gov
ernor in resisting the mebat Fire island
nnd in placing tlie unhappy passengers
of the Nermannia In the shelter pro
vided for them by the state seems te be
the only excuse for the outrage.
Dr. Asheley A. Webber, of Brooklyn,
reported te the beard of health Friday
night the death of Miss Meyer at 291
North Eighth street under circum
Btanecs that lead him te believe a case
of Asiatic cholera. Twe inspectors
were detailed te investigate and re
port. Twe additional suspicious ceses were
reported, one en Fulton and another en
McKibben streets. They are being in
vestigated. At a conference of the health beard
their attention was called te the im
portations of beet sugar, which comes
largely from Hamburg and Altena.
Although it was net thought advisable
te prohibit its importation, It was
recommended that great care be exer
cised in its reception.
After receiving reports from 'all the
city officials having the sanitary condi
tion of the city in their care, and con
ferring at length with the heads of the
various citj' departments, Mayer Grant
decided Friday night that it would be
advisable te request the president te
step immigration from infected Euro
pean ports entirely for the present
The following message was accordingly
sent te President Harrisen:
