The town of Franklin is not yet
rid of yellow fever, there were three
or four more cases reported during
the week. It does not seem to be of
a spreading type and must be very
mild as few have caught the disease
so far. The town is reported as al
most depopulated and we may sup
pose this the plausible reason for so
few cases. We hope Franklin will
soon he without that dreaded disease

Quite a sensation was produced
yesterday in Lake Charles, says the
Daily States, when Mrs. Hedges, a
handsome well dre.sed woman at
tempted to cowhide Ex-Sheriff Kin
ney Reid. The affair was quickly
over, only one blow being struck be
fore the cowhide, whitch had been
dr awn from a parasol, was taken pos

H:.od;es claims that Mr. Reid has been
guilty of participation in the recent
action of Capt. T. R. Reynolds, the
agent of the Waif's Home of New
Orleans. in taking a child fro,'. her
at the solicitation of a divorced hus
band the ground being that she is
leading an impure life. Mr. Reid

The handsome external appearance
of Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly
for September is borne out by an ex
ceptionally attractive table of con
tents. The leading article, "A Wair
ship's Battery," by Henry Harrison
Lewis, tells how the great guns are
placed and worked, and is illustrated
with some splendid pictures of our
victorious ships in action at Manila,
and Santiago. The famous "John
son Island Conspiracy," on episode
of the Civil War, recalled by the re
cent death of Leonard B. Johnson,
of Sandusky, Ohio, is interestingly
recounted by Frederick Boyd Steven
son. Katharine Tynan contributes
some charming notes upon "The Ir
ish Pe.le at Home," accompanying
half-a-dozen characteristic pictures
by Helmick. The tenth and final
paper of the Religious Denominations
series "The Roman Catholics," by
the Rev. A. P. I)oyle. "The Sold

lyrics of modern times.
