Doctors and Roads.
THmI Parish of Plaquemines, two hundred
miles long, or one hundred miles on each side
of the river, and the river frequently impassable
for small boats, presents somewhat difficult
road problems to the people who reside here.
We have excellent doctors and, in fact, quite a
number of them. They are men of unquestion
ed ability and large expleriece and are now
carrying on a successful practice. Year by
year, as time rolls on, we learn more and more
to appreciate the active, earnest work done in
our parish by our leading medical men. We
often think how willing the average man is to
go to his lawyer and ask advice on some le.gal
point and willingly pay $5 or more for the in
formation which may save him from . ~ rave
error, or may aid him in Inakis :ng a profitable
transactinn and at the same time an eq al pay
ment to a doctor w\ho carefuily ",.co ci...3 all the
symptoms and diagnos&s some t:mrnIaiCiryl", illness
and then tells tilhe patient that he is not serious
ly ill at all, but will be wel tom orrow, and
charges $2 to $3 for this inf"rmaion, is fre
quently grumblingly rpaid.
Happily for us all, however, we are begin
ning to learn that less rmedicine and more good
advice and frequent, and in fact constant atten
tion of our physicians to our famil ies is just
what we want. Their experience and kIowl
edge and advice become more arnd more valuable
to us all the time and it is not the medication,
but it is the teaching us how to live in order to
preserve or regain our health that we pay the
doctors for rth. services that they render to us.
We only regret that they are not ?noreprornmptly
and better paid than they now are.
There is a feature of the medical business in
the Parish of Plaqueminfes, however, that de
serves very urgent attention and that is the
betterment of the public roads of the parish.
The shell road from New Orleans to Pointe a Ia
Haclie that should be soon completed will put in
good shape the first. fifty miles below the city.
The shell road from Algiers to the Cut-off road Ti
at Belle Chasse plantation, which we understand wie
has been contracted for, will when completed bas:
prepare the way for a shell road on the West cept
bank of the river from the Cut-off road at Belle tle
Chasse down to opposite the Court House on mor
the W,est bank. That road ought to be con- not
sidered now and the people resident within that Rat
section of the natriAh .',ould think earnestly pro
about it and endeavor as soon as practicable to det
givE
organize for getting the road constructed. The to
experience with Road District No. 1 on the cier
East bank and the incidental delays in carrying are
out all the details of organization, arranging str(
for the sale of bonds, etc., shows how long it all
takes to launch these enterp ises and our ofrs
friends on the W-st bank will doubtless exper- con
ience much of the same delay and yet they need con
the good roads as badly as do the residents of anC
the East bank and the dcetors living therein TU
will :assu.re them. of dint fact.
From West Pointe a Ia i.ache down to Buras tir
and beloW, through the beautiful orange coun- the
try, really the firest section of the state of i
Louisian, a shell road cshu i b be built. It will !
attract thousands of visit.'s to that section of CL)
the state and it ouiht to and doubtless will be
made into a read district in due time but the
sooner the better.
On the East bank from Pointe a la Hache at
down the maintenance of the back levee has n:
cost so much and the people living between i
Pointe a la Hache and Fort St. Phillip having ag
been so impoverished by so many overflows the a
prospect looks perhaps the least promising of hi
improvemenatat the present time. Yet we be- 9
lieve that they could stand the cost of a shell of
road and once they g'et it they will wonder how hi
they could have done so long without it. It will
Sbuild their coun.try right up just as good roads
do everyvwhere and the doctors are quick to ap- Y'
preciate the good roads and when we want the d;
doctors we generally want them to come to us N
as quickly as they can and good roads will help 1
them as well as the other people resident in the b
parish. V
When we reflect on the enormous sums of I
money now being appropriated in the northern '
states, recently some 75 millions of dollars in h
3 New York state on the basis of an expenditure V
duaring the next ten years of some 7 1-2 millions t
} of dollars per year, i itis a stunning exhibit of
the confidence tuat the people of That state have
in the advantages that good roads will give to
} all the people, It is evident that fGodC ro; s
are as necessary as good roofs over Cr" i'r.ousm.!. .
We trust that all our peoi;le ill carefully con- I
,ider the two problems t"ait w~e prsent now,
e presenting to them the obtter appreciation of
the doctors of our parish a':d better roads for
a their immediate travelin'g and better reads for
n the common good of all concerned.
Typhus Fever.
t has been about secventy-five years
R.sitee Gerhard, an American physici.n, a
t'ro';id convinicingly, tha' -typhus and
typhoid fever were not the samec. Up 'i
to three years ago our knotwledge of
the disease stood almost exactly where h
it was at the time Gerhard first drew d
attention to its differences from ty
phoid. In the last three years greater I
advance has been made, largely through s
the work of American investigators,
than in the previous three-quarter;s cf f
a century. Formerly known as "ship
fever," "jail fever," "cemp fcver," l
"prison fever" and "famine fever,"
,typhus bis always been found where
P.large nuribers of men were massed to- E
gether, particularly under unhygenic e
coniditions. For years it h'a bcen r=:
garded as extinct in this country, b::t
this view has recently been shown i:o
be a mistake. Growth of knowkidge in
this subject has been rapid in the I:t
four years. In 1909 Nicolle pro-vc: tha~t
the infection was found in tre bl'·c, I
anid Anderson and Goldberr. ;er of the
United States Public H.a th Sr;is.e i
proved that typhus and tTabrdilo" of
!Mexico were the sams thing. Ni;o!:e,
Comte and Conseil prove\d t~-at ;~h :i2 -
-ease was transmiitted by tie i(l':.
'' Rickets by his work in Mx;i:, conlirm
'ed these facts and lost iis !i:e i: doivc
so. Eaily in 1912, Anderson -nd Gol;
berger proved that typhu' w h.a the
same a, "Brill's Niil.,,,,' and waI
prevalent in the Uitedi SL:t.:s a l: ^ i'a:
' Been for vye:ar. -We now lknvw," ays
thea jourial of t'v: Amyric  M-dixca
tsAsociation, thsi typhus is ui;ti:lnt
froim typhoid, that i till exist;, that
; !t is transmitted from :;ne person to
another by lice, and that it ceeurs
among persons of filthy habit' cr itn.
'itimes of great distress.
While the work of American investi
tors has added so much to our knowl
dge of typhus fever the cost has been
great. Of the three different groups
f American investigators, composed of
two each, two, Rickets and -Conover,
from the disease contracted m
rexico and one, Goldberger, was ser
"sly ill. This is another instance of
the devotion of men of science to their
ºaling and their willingness to expose
themselves to disease and possibly to
Sth in hope of furthering our knowl
e.

The Allies made their position clear
when they said to the friendless am- estr
bassadors of Turkey in London: "Ac- p!e
cept our terms or we will resume hos- n
tilities." Turkey is not so confident of ling
the ability of her soldiers to repel any
more invasions of the Allies. She does 
not wish to invite further conflict.
Rather would she" lille peace. She
promises to concede all of the Allies'
demands. But she would not willingly'
give up Adrianople. That city is dear1i
to the heart of the Mussulman. An
dent-memories sacred to the Turks
are closely allied with this fortified
stronghold. Therefore Turkey concedes anc
all the other terms of the Allies, But JO.
reserved the question of the possession
of Adrianople for separate and later
consideration. She hopes that other
concessions may appease the Bulgars
and their brother warriors. And every
Turk prays that Mohammed might help
the Turk and crush the Christian in
:aders. The Allies have granted more
time to the Turks. It is supposed that
the Turks will not long hold out before
yielding Adrianople. When the ques
tion of the possession of ilrianople is
once settled, then peace is almost
surely secured.
