K. 6ii,ilei, where tbe death ot Frank Snyder oi: uned. Dr. Sliannun lirst exhibited to me the bcdtliiij.', Miiined witb m dark coloied fluid which bu Haid bud bciii vomited by bin patient u lew hours pevintia to lit nth. 1 then Hccotnpunied Dr. Shannon into the bouho to view tho (lend body. Dr. Shannon then in formed me tbut lie had not hud the leant eusticiou of yellow lever until be h.iw the black vomit a lew hours previuiia to th ai b; that his diagnosis bail been bilious teter with developing cancer of tbe Htomacb. At this tdage of the proceeding, Dr. Shannon asked uie if it Hid not look like yellow lever, an J my reply was it certain ly did look like yellow fever; as we bad no means of veiii.ving tba tact tbut it was yellow lever, and Ht this stage ot the proceeding, we I did not expect to have tiny veriti-! cation other than our mere ocular observations, Dr. Shannon now j proposed tbut wo make luudissrc , tiou oi tbe siomacb with the view of verifying bis diagnosis of (bej 'developing cancer ol the stomucb." j With scalpil in band, 1 proceeded to take out the stoinich, 1 also extended my dissection and look out the duodenum and the pan-1 creatio gland. 1 I lien examined the liver, guli, bladder aud spleen.) Tbe external .or periioneal coat of the stomach was perteutly sound iiuil free from discoloration, the! muscular coats also presented tbe! game healthy appearance, tbe inactis I coat presented tbe uppeatauce ot ! congestion and acute iuflauiutinn, there waa no sonenmg, theie was no odor toive evidence ot decotu position or (rangreen, the stomach contained about a half it pint of a dark giumous fluid, similar iu appearance to that vomited; tbe liver, I estimated nearly doubl- d tbe size of a normal liver. I did not out into the liver, externally it presented a uniform pale yellow color, the gall bladder was full of a dark greenish looking bile, all around external to tbe duodenum, 1 the pancreas and involving tbe, pancreatic duct and tbe gall duet 1 was extensive adhesions, evidence of an old chronic -intlaunitioii of tbe peritonaeum, I did uot try tbe pateusy of the gall duct but jttdg-: lug from external appearances, I concluded it must be very much contracted if not entirely obliter ated. At this stage of the pro ceed! g, I remarked to Dr. Shan non that I bad not found any evi dence ot developing, cancer, but that I bud found sufficient evidence of disease to account foi death, without calling It yellow fever, aud iu tbe absence of that peculiar odor, common to tbe black vomit of yel low fever, I should not call it yel-; low lever until a microscopical aud ' chemical examination bad beetij mada verifying that fact. Then, aay Dr. Sii.iuuini, will wnd the stomach aud it-i contents to Dr. Jones tor such rxainiiution. The reader is iow telVreti lo Dr. Jouea' reply, a part ot which is inserted in Dr. Shannon' letter, and if any sensible man can di.--c.iver anvlhill.' lo prove or conBrm Dr. Shannon's theory of ye. low fever, be must be stocked with a very largo amount of credulity. Dr. Jones did not say it us yellow fever. Dr. Suau uou bas furnished Mt t full tojiy of Dr. Jones' letter which s ays : "If we bad sent hi in portions ot the liver, heart, kidneys aud a steciiiieit of Uiiuc,' I hen he could have coiiie to some more satisUc lory conclusions, but as it was, tin could only advise tbe exercise of all plotter precautions, which tin fortunately for Dr. Shannon, be hail not dune up to ibis time, and it was lack of piec.iuiiuiis Sat k of isolation lack of every thought or care lor tbe living, which brought down upon tbe bead ot Dr.Shunuoii tbe just condemnation of the whole community. Dr. Shannon pre tends to believe that nil tha "un kind things said ot hiiu," grew out of my interview witli Dr. Carson. There was but n'ie word iu that in terview of which any objection is made, that report makes me say, "1 found a dark yrctnit, Huid in the st nnach," 1 am incorrectly reported in this one word. 1 said a dark grumous fluid. T. W. Kllis, says, I said "emphatically It wasvellow fever." I now say emphatically that I did not iy any such a thing. I admit however that when 1 first saw the case, 1 said it looked like yellow fever hut that after I hud made the post-mortem examination I then expressed it serious doubt ol its being yellow ever mid Mr. Llhs now admits lliat 1 then made this qualification as shove. In pi oof of this I informed Mr. Kllis then that I did uot regard the case ol sullicieut importance to exercise any precautions, and uctiug upon this opinion, Mr. Kllis sent lor his sun to come to (Tssist at the burial. From that day to this I have imiiutuiiicd that Frank Sny dcr did lint die of "yellow fever. When 1 assisted Dr. Shannon in sending those specimens to Dr. Jones, tor chemical and microsco pical examination, it was under stood that we were to wait the result of that examination. It was also understood that if it was really yellow fever there would most cer tainly be more of it, therefore we were to wuit for lutute develop ments. Now 1 maintain that neither Dr. Joneb' letter, nor future devel opments otany kind, has establish ed I he fact nor produced the shadow of proof that it was yellow fever. And as a carollary to this, it it was yellow fever, then yellow lever is not contagious, uot even infectious in any degree whatever. Fortunate it is fur the credit and character of this country that truth aud history has vindicated us aud established the fact beyond controversy that we have not had a case of yellow fever iu this coun try this year, uud Ibat indigenous yellow fever is both improbable and impossible, iu this healthy piuey woods country. In conclu sion, 1 desire to say to Dr. Shan uiiu tbut tiie "criticisms and un kind thiuas" which lias been made mid said of bun did not grow out ot Dr. Carson's report ot his inter view witb hie; ou tbe contrary, it was the spoulatieous and indignant revolt of this whole community Hint he should report a suspicious case of yellow fever and then per mit that dead body in nil advanced state of decotu position to be brought down six miles through the country and into our town into the church, then tbrough the town followed by a large concourse of our people to tbe grave yard, and he at tbe same time sending tele grams to New Orleans and to tho Mi-sissippi State board ot health that Frank Snyder's death was a suspicious case of yellow fever.

"John L. S dlivau told me a good story of liia Western trip," Maid Uuflalu llill.

"'Don't mind whether I driuk or fight,' es be, 's.iy be word an I'll do either, yon.' "Ami with that bu threw his arm around my waist, as we walked toward the bar. Thinks I, 'If I nut my. paw mound hi in I'll btve lit ( sure it it comes to the worst,' and 1 slung my right arm around him. But heavens! when 1 struck that arsenal around the waist, mid felt that I didn't kituw what time be iniht shoot, mv arm went like that (shaking it) and I dropped it quicker than lightning. I set np the drinks and kept se'tin' them itt In tbe hope Ibat lied get so drunk that ho couldn't see to shoot, hut the more he drank the steadier he got. At last ses he: " 'C- me down street npfeco till I iu l io luce von to mv friends.' "'Oh, Lord I' thought I,' but I was afraid of ofteiiding him if 1 refused, so out on tiie street we went. We didn't go fir, but by the light of the gas lamps aud stores 1 could Rt e that the street was full ol cowboys. 1 " 'Come iu here,' said my .guide, when we cauiu to it tough-looking saloon crowded with tougher look- 1 g men.

They mado way for us ut the bar, uud 1 shook hands all round, and they (.untied as it they'd like the tun of shooting ptccca out of me, "Says I, Met me order those driiiWs,' 'Ah, you ,' says he, 'my credit's good here, Barkeeper, give us sonic the and he quick about it. Yer John L. Sullivan, eht Well, d'yer know w ho I am "No, sir,' said I. "Well, I'm Comanche Jim, the killer, from Killer's Town. 'Oh, I'm a wolf, yow; aud it's my day to howl yow, yow.' "Aud with that he drew two sliooteis ami dauce I ou the flitor and blazed away at the lights aud buttles, and the barkeeper dodging around to get out of the way. "1 bad been getting more ami more scared all the time, and this finished me. I was just sure he was getting wound up to go tor nit'. Aud 1 determined to slope wni!e tbe walking was good. So said I : "Excuse me, I want to speak to the landlord;' nud hacked to ward the rear door. "'Now I waul you back iu a of a hurry.' said be, 'Mr. John L. Sullivan, champion ot the East.' "1 put out, and ho sent two balls after me as a reminder. One cut through the tail of my coat and another put a hole iu my hat. 'llur- ly up John L. Sullivan,' I Could hear him shouting. ' "I got out in die back yard, in a region ot seven-toot fences, but a seven-foot fence was nowhere. 1 don't believe I touched that lencc for tho next three fences, us 1 strnek across lots for my hotel. Some mail at an upper wiudow ot one of the bouses 1 passed took a flying shot ut me with a rifle, but that only made me go the faster. I climbed in the back window at my hotel, made a break up stairs, bolted my .window ml door aud tried to go to sleep. I could hear an awful row begin dow n stairs in a tew minutes, mid knew my iiieud h d come tor uie. A perfect bat tle raged below for a lime, but after awhile it ceased, and 1 could hear tbein carrying out the dead, I thought.

"Tnat don't aitiounl to much," replied tbe boy. "There's always something turn up when the sociable season first staris iu. You see, ma was MpHtiuted a committee to fix up a grab bag. Me and my chum were digging bait that uioru iug to go fiMiiug. When we got done I come in and found ma bad finished tbe grab-hag, aud had it all loaded, with the top fastened with a puckering string, and bun ! on the back of a chair. Mawasnu- stairs getting her Sunday clothes un to go to the fociaole, o it didn't take uie und my cbutu long to empty tbo bag and get first cl.oice. Then I got our mouse trap and took it to the barn, uud caught two nice big fat mice and put 'em iu a collar- box with holes in it, to give em air, a id dn.pt that in the bag. Then my chum remembered a big sn.ije ping I utile ho had in the swill bar rel, ami me and him got that and wiied it as dry us we could, and tied it irll up but its bead, and put that iu just as tba deacon's hired man cumu to take the bag over to the sociable. Me und mv chum went dowu to hi house tin I waited till the people got over to the sociulile, and then be went over ami got up in a tree, where we C iuld see through i lie open window mid hear all 'hat was going ou. li, he stood over by the bag ami rhoutett : 'Ten cents a grab; don't let anybody be backward iu a good case.' Three or four h id put op their teu cents aud made a grab, when an old maid from Oslikosh, who had been to the springs tin' hysterics, got in her work on the collar-box. When she got the cover off. one of the mice that knew his business jumped on her shoul der and crawled down her neck, and the Other dropped down on I he floor und slatted moil ml to meet tbe other one. You'd a died to seen In r flop and show her stock ing and scream. The deacon's folks thought it, was another attack of hysterics and pa mi l the deacon got her on the sofa und held her while they poured paregoric and ca.venne pepper down her. When she got loose she screamed all the ha'dei. Tlin one of the other women see the mouse uud got up in a chair and shook her skirts uud asked the new young minister tn help her catch the mouse. The poor fe'low looked as though be would like to, but he failed. Just then the boitom of the chair broke and let her t ill over ou m.i and tore her bangs all down. Ma c di ed her a 'hateful thing' uud told her she ought to be ashamed ot herself. Finully they got things in order, but-no one wanted to tackle tbe bag, and as here was where the profits come iu, pa braced up and said he'd like to know why every body acted so 'spimous, he'd like lo see a grab bag that would give him the hysterics and said 'women ate always gettiu' scared at not bin'.' He then put down 10 cents and jammed his band nay down in the bottom of the bag, but he didn't keep it there luug. lie give a jump nud anked his baud out, yelling 'thunder !' Then he swung it over his head to shake it oil, and .brought it down on the dea con's head and smashed his secs. Then he swung it. tlitt other way and struck the Ao nau president of ihe sewing society iu the stomach and knocked her down iu th-c dea con's tip. Alter pa had; hollered himself hoarse mid thumped half tho people in the room, the turtle let go and pa said he 'could lick the man that put tliHt steel trap in the grab-bag.'
