There was a distinctly Joyful feeling HiroiiRhiHit the day. People moved about with the utmost freedom and In stead of anxious Inquiries on every hand, there were Jeota Innumerable. The fact Is that (InlveMon treats tho situation aa a Joke. The people, many of thorn at least, think that In what haa beon pronounced the disease thoy lmvo had tho yellow fever.
