IT IB ASCERTAINED FACT AND THERE FORE SCIENCE. CONSIDER THESE STATEMENTS OF FACTS, THINK OVER THEM AND DRAW YOUR OWN OXNCLUSIONS. HABLEQUIN - In answer to your questions: These are the experiments which have lead to the conclusion that a certain, one kind of mosquito, is the Only Transmitting agency of yellow fever. In what I say here I speak on the authority of my own personal ly conducted experiments. I know of my own knowledge the facts I state. o The experiments were made du ring two consecutive years in an original home of yellow fever- Vera Cruz. Men were' brought from places where no yellow fever ever existed. They had heeu exa mined and found to be free from any and all ailments. They were taken to Vera Cruz uader absolute and complete preo cautions against the mosquito. They were placed in rtwoms in which no mostluitwos could have a S lived or wre living then. After two wotks of couutinual ox- i emiaation, and absolute exclusion ;. at the mosquito, no sickness of any kind had developed in thL' Iu,. :;f ,;·-.· Two mosquitoes, of the fever-tran smitting kind which had been al lowed to feed on a fatal case of I yellow fever and which had tbeen kept from that time on, for from i twelve to sixteen days, in a wire- ( screened cage, were permitted to I sting the men kept under observa- t tion. These men were stricken a three days and one bour after the I mosquito bites, with typical yellow < fever. The prevention of fatality I of the disease in these instances was due to time intervention and extraordinary care. f Over two summers I extended these experiments and observa I tions. There was absolutely no I variation from* fact that this striped-legged and blue-winged I mosquito, which will be known to the world in time as the "yellow < fever mosquito," and which is now scientifically known as, "stegom- I yia fasciata," transmits yellow fe ver. Now. After A had developed I yellow fever in two non-immunes with the mosquitoes in the man just described, I kept these yellow fever sufferers in the same protec ted room with six other men who never had yellow fever and who therefore mast have been suscep tible to it. And after three weeks _ not one of them developed the dis. ease. These experiments, too, were repeated variedly so that by r no possibility could the outcome vhave been chance or the disease due to any other source of infec tion than the mosquito. Also. All mosquitoes I used for i experimentation were reared and bred fgom eggs and young larvae a or wiggle-tails in glass jars in the f laboratory. The freshly hatched mosquitoes were consequently free j from the disease for mosquitoes, - thus reared, were continually fed, v in order to keep them alive, on my [ non-immune subjects. No subject bitten by the freshly hatched mos - quitoes ever became sick. A j freshly hatched mosquito of that - kind fed on a known and undoub t ted case of yellow fever during the r third and fourth day produced the - disease in the same men in whom he had failed to produce it four teeu dlays before--that is, before G having been fed on the yellow fe ver sufferer. Other varities of mosquitoes (eighteen species) which prevail ed at the same time in Vera Cruz were reared and experimented with in the same manner as just de scribed for the fellow fever moe quite without a single case prodau ciug the fever. Another experiment was made to see whether the disease could di be produced by the introduction al of the causative agent in a non- C immune outside of the actual sting 13 of the "yellow fever mosquito." a Infected mosquitoes of from six- nt teen to nineteen day's infection, , mosquitoes which had produced ti the disease by their string, were g crushed, put in water and given u to other non-immunes to drink. No development followed. tl 1 assert unqualiliedly that if two a sets of men, one hundred or one thousand in each blHly, are taken - all non-immunes- and put in two wire-screeneed cages, and a yellow fever mosquito which has bitten a sufferer is put into oue of these cages, as many men in that cage as it bites are liable to have h the yellow fever. If one man in this cage have it and a little swarm of yellow fever mosquitoes are set free in that cage, it is desparately likely that every man in the cage will have it. If the other cage hbe kept alongside of the infected olne; if the two sets of men breathe the t same air; if they interchange foodl and water; if they touch each oth- t era' hands, not one single ,i'ian in the cage kept free from the mos quitoes will catch the disease. That has been so conclusively proven that no sensible man can acquaint himself with the facts of the most carefully conducted ex periments, and remain in the slightest doubt as to the reason of yellow fever's spread. If six do zen acute cases of yellow fever were taken into this city-into its dirtiest slums-and each carefully kept under screens so that our I striped-legged yellow mosquitoes Scould not get at them, there would be no more danger of a spread in the disease here, of the develop A Warning to Mothers.

The great problem is to wake the people, the populace, under stand and believe and know one single fact-that the "yellow-fever mosquito's" presence has beuen, is and will be (as.long as we permit it) the destruction and menace of man. It took over a hundred years for the people, the populace, to under stand, to believe, to know that vac cine is a scientific reality-and it took over a half century before the dread of small-pox was wiped away by it. Let us hope that in this day of the printing press and the utiliza tion of the lightning, it will not take as long for man seize upon the potent reality of a vastly im portant fact.

Thursday a large number of our people were very much disappoin- I teH to learn that the branch train I had made no connection with the t train on the main line, and we gut I uno mail, express or freight. We got I the information, though not from I a positive source, that the train u would be entirely discontinued. We could not ascertain whether or not it was intended to stop only the passenger and mail thain, or also the freight train. It appears - that some towns will not receive mail, freight or passengers, and will not allow the trains to stop, and it is reported that in some 3 places the people have torn up the railroad track to keep the train from running. We can well - enough dispense with the mail, though it will entirely paralyze the business of every town, and canse -great inconviuience, it is nothing to be compared to the stoppage of freight train, as we doubt that our stores have provisions to last more r thban three weeks or a mouth, and at the end of that time the people will experience great hardship if n tihe trains ate not allowed to run.
