Please Heed, Fellow-Citizens!
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
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

Too much care cannot be used with

Thursday a large number of our

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
