The latest news obtainable in regard to yellow fever in New Orleans is that there have been t fifty cases to date with 17 now under treatment and 6 deaths. The authorities are using every means known to science to re strict the disease to the infected a section and stamp it out. Let Everybondy Help. Mayor Mouton and the City Council have begun a vigorous campaign for a thoroungh clean ing up of the city, realising that every precautionary measure - possible should be taken in view I of the fact that yellow fever ex ists in New Orleans, and, from Dr. Souchon's statement of 17 oases and 6 deaths, oa asevere type. In their efforts to put the city in the best sanitary condi tion possible, they should have the prompt and. vigorous co operation of the .citiens. And while we do not consider the situation alarming at., present, yet as an act cf prudence we should take every measure to prepare for all contingencies. Every * householder should at once thoroughly clean and dis infect his premises, drain all stagnant water, and either screen his cisterns or put a small quantity of coal oil n them. Get the town clean, get rid of the mosquitoes and we will then be in splendid shape to wsrd of yellow fever. The Boa. _1 of Health as will be seen by perusal of proceedings in another column have taken steps to keep out the disease and they can be relied on to do their best in every way Sto protect us. But we must help and help by cleaning up thoroughly. lIM13, The best diua~fgctaat, at A.
