All were rejoicing be- rp nIuse our neighbors were cousi- 01 ler freo from the fever, and all " qularantine raised. Saturday, however, to our sur- et prise and sorrow, another case of ww yellow fever was reported from that to town, the patient being Charles n Martin, a young man. as The parish and town authorities th the musnio evening re-established th the quarantine against Lafayette WE and guards were again placed on I duty on the public roads of the parish and the entrances to St. w, Martiuville. on No report has been made of this th case as to positively establish its origin, it may be from some infec toed mosquito which escaped de structiou from the fumigation, cl autl which may be at large to Ims selread the fever as long as it will si, live or until it is killed, and as to either its existence or its death is th very doubtful, it will live in the ol mind of the people, this uncertain ty, which will be the cause of the o) peopl)le holding quarantine longer ex than is perhaps necessary, but all still, under these conditions of lai doubt and uncertainty, who can is blaun uuinfected communities in ple taking every precaution to guard bu against the introduction of yellow op fever within their limits. otl The result in Bunkie and Alex audria has been the same, cases of try fever have appeared there long af- va ter the first cases had died or the lar patients cured and discharged and ttl the places declared free from fe- pu ver. go With the mouqaito theory the tht experts can diagnose a case of fe- obi vet and can tell you when you are ,eel cured, but they can never tell you Tih when a comwunity is free from ry the wostuito infection. tent A towu infected with yellow fe- c ver may not suffer many deaths, e but tue introduction of the fever c in a town is costly, the expenses a that are necessary to keep it from t - spreadling is great, the anxiety of . some of the most timid people, I the alarmists, add to the trouble, t . and the destruction of the busi- t - ness of the town infected to almost lq complete. a We should continue our vigi- f slence until tle end of this month n at least, if we can keep the fever fi out of here until that time, we will c ' feel safe for this season.

Our Schools. t a We note from the tone of an edlitorial of the Valley-of-the-Teche last week that there is some ten- hi I sion among the people of that di S)town in regard to) the opening of p e the High School which will be in th operation there shortly. us We are really sorry to see the pr 3 opposition or competition which W, r exist between the public schools co L and the private onee, and particu f larly the religious schools. There we is no reason for this, there is room, th a plenty of room for all the schools, ch I but it is wrong for one school to an oppose or to compete with the an other. oi The public schools should not of try to get the pupils from the pri. vat. schools, the idea of a vety Ch large attendance does not improve the efficiency of*the schools; the m public schools should be made as He goxod as it is possible to make o them, but the best result is never nal I obtained from an overcrowded hi Sschool and overtaxed teachers. ouI The public schools, nm the contra- we ry should induce all who can to at ten ttend the private schools, in redu- is. - cing the attendance of the public s, schools the teachers, who are gen r crally limited in number, will ib se able to give more and better atten n tion to their pupils. f There is room in every commu e, nity for the religious schools, par P, ticularly, and we are of opinion i- that if the private schools will give it less of their attention to the public schools and concentrate their ef i- forts and energies to the improve b ments of their schools, make them r first class in every respect and II charge a fair price for tuition they would soon be popular and flou rishing institutions, that would be doing good work and the people would soon appreciate the efforts of such schools. We believe the private schools are wrong in trying to run oppxsi. g tion or competition to free institu e tions maintained by the state at S the expense of the State. Let the i poor children who cannot pay for I their schools attend the public schools which are doing a noble work in educating the children of a the masses, rich or poor, the pub r lic schools are here to stay, and t they will remain as long as this free government last, and this is for ever. , On the other hands the private s schools and particularly the religi Sons schools are also a necessity. and they will also find all the sup port they need if they only follow the line of progress and maintain a standard of efficiency that is re quired today of all schools. If all the schools would work in harmony, help one another in buil ding up instead of running in op position, they would soon realize that each school would have their usefulness, education would be promoted and the, result in general would be more satisfactory for all concerned. We need the public schools and we need the religious schools and the people can and will idways cheerfully support them all, they are useful and needed institutions, and they should mutually assist one another in going up the road of improvement and perfection.
