Y V M J JS J 1 m,, H M Chappell Hill refused to take 'what was coming to them in the shape of U. S. mail yesterday, and the pouch was dumped at this place. The mildness of the yellow fe ver now prevailing east of the Hississippi river may be judged from the official report from Ed wards up to Saturday night: "Dotal number of cases to date 140; deaths to date, 6, about 4 per cent.

A man who truly loves a maid la always more or less afraid to tell her so ; But here old Nature comes in play Aud make him moaninsuch a way That she may know. If you want care and attention when you are sick, announce the Ziext time you don't feel well that .you are just from the yellow fever district. You will figure more 2onspicuously in the telegraph than the woman who gets off to Klondike. The fact that there is no yellow Sever in Texas cannot be too strongly impressed upon the out side world.

There is no top cotton in sight, and no one is now talking of any. s33us will increase prices. A small aggregate of cases and an. exceedingly light mortality. This is about the truth concern ing the yellow fever business to iate. It would be insignificant save for what it costs in the way at business and fuss. It will soon eun its course and then business -without fuss. "What the Shakers of Mount Labenon cco-w more about than anybody else, is the cse of herbs and how to be healthy.
