Yerv respectfully, -B: tt INMAN. ONE CASE OF YELLOW FEVER. SIX MILES SOUTH OF WOODVILLE. Elsewhere the false publication m the Times-Democrat that there was a ease of yellow fever in Woodville is contradicted. Reports have circulated here during the week that there was a case Of yelh)w fever in Centre- ville. We have not believd the report and it has not been verifi- ed. We hope sincerely that Cen- treviile will escape, though all the stations on the lille of the Y. & M. V. road have been more or less liable to the infection. There is one case of yellow fever, Mrs. P. S. Johnson, 6 miles south of Woodville at the resilience" of Mrs. M. S. John- SOn. The history othe eases is as fo110ws : During last week both ladies had attended the funeral of young Stewart, a relative, who (lied near Jackson, La., of what after- wards Was declared to be yellow fever. On last Saturday night Mrs. M. S. Johnson beinu taken with fever and fearing that slid had been exposed to contagion notified Dr. Magruder of the fact, and on Sunday morning Dr. Therrell, "the only ilnmune physi- cian we have, attended the case and'after several dtivs decided it not to be yellow fever. In fact Mrs. Johnson had had yellow fever tn 184. ' Mrs, P. S. Johnson was taken sik Saturday night but Dr. Ther- r011's attention fvas not called to her until Monday. Dr. Therrell considers Mrs. P. S. Johnsol's a typical ease of yellow fever, and the patient Is doing as well as eoulii Bit expected,  There are thre adults and three , ' . ,    J Intli'eh (whiles)and two adults al:On IJoy (col.) in the house and liable to infection. This in- cludes lrs. P.Johnsou's inother, Mrs. C. W. Davis, who went down an Wednesdity to nurse her daugh- ter." ' :'* Immune guards were placed at the htouae and other guards a- round the place onSunday. We are'indebted to Dr. Ther- tell for the forgoing particulars, who further states, that, so far as he can Judge the guards are effective. It will be seen from this state- mett of the facts that the people of town and county need not fear hafection from the sickness at Mrs. M.S. Johnson's. The most diligent inquiry does not sclose aSl " of sickness in the trot certainly there is none in this town. Besides tbe guards referred to around the residence of Mrs. John- son tllerear guards on the road leding Into tile towa and inspectors looking out for strangers tho may come into the town. Under thee circumstances there Is no reasonable or rational grounds for fear of yellow fevtr in this town. Irrational Icar, ot course, cannot be controlled. Extreme and nnneees- ! sarv measures, of precaution osteu-. sit)/$', itlt false reports, are the! chief causes of extrente fear amongsl I the people. Woodville is one of tile healthiest towns in tile Noulh mght now, and the health of the county is better nowtitanlt was in Atgust, though we fear the eastern and tenth-eastern portions of the COilnty may be liable to sporadic cases of 3ellow fever from previous or con- linued contact withlnfected places. llowever, this town is strictly guard- ed against visitors from such h)eah lies and there .a notlting to fear fr,,m that source, l-lrace up and atteud to business if you have any, or if you must loaf, do not occttpy the time in helping to spread sensational reports. Q[TARANr'N'E LINES. West Feliciana Parish is quar- antined against Wilkinson eotiut y. Natchez is quarantined against I his county. Wilkinson county is quarantin- ed qgainst East Feliciana Parish. Woodville is quarantined against goods coming from any- where. And against all persons living in or visiting the section traversed by the Y. & M. V. R. R., from Harriston" south, which includes Rosetta, Dayton, Glos- ter, Centreville, and the towns south of Centreville. The town also has quarantined that portion of the county bounded on the west by the Woodville branch of the Y.&M. V.R.R., and east by the Main L,neoftheY.&M. V.R. R., and north hy a line drawn from the Main Line of theY.& M. V. R. R. to the branch road running past the Burnhamwood house dno e.lst and west. There are no quarantine re- strictions passed as yet against the people of thg county lying north, west and south-west-0f the town Amite county has quarantined against Wilkinson because this county does not effectively guard the Louisiana line, presumably East Feliciana and the Y. & M. V. roa:l. The residence and people at Frank McGraw's on the Schaefer place are quarantined. The health board on Thursday called upon the county health officer to niake charges against Frank McGraw for visiting the neighborhood of Wilson, La.

But when a committee is appointed by the health board "lal make arrangements with Cap!. Lewis" as the order read, "to pub- lish their proceedings" and this [act is partially made knows fly being "stuck up on the door," and there has been no sueh publications in this paper we desire to state that tht, "arrangement" the committee wish- ed to make was fpr a free publics lion of their ltealth regulalions, "as a matter of news."

With Col. Roosevelt leadin the opposition the Democrats will have a hard fight though they seem in no wise discouraged. The Republicans pr,bal)ly have dissentions as the Roosevelt nora:- nation was a set back for the ma- chine Republicaus. It is not be- lieved that tbe bolt of the ex- treme free-silver men, if there is one, will seriously injure the De- mocratic ticket.
