THE EVOKING GAZETTE: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3 3'n RrlHfir Mdli'-nt Journal. DCAK Sin.—T have the (five a brief nnte upon "Epidemic Cholera/ honor to the subject of as it appeared at Fort Dodge, Kaa, in the summer nncl v autumn of 1*07. The Fort ia situated upon the upper Arkansas River neflr the present location of Dodge (ity. The garrison was composed of a bntal- lion of the 3rd U. H, Infantry, troop K of the 7th U. S. Cavalry and quite a large force of civilians employed by the quartermaster, as the post ;was under the process of building up nt the time. Sometime during the latter part of .Tuly, 18(17. a detachment of colored troops on their way to New Mexico encamped on the river bottom near the fort. The moving column, lost some of their command with,'cholera along the line of march before reaching our post, and one died while encamped for the night near us. Surgeon Chaa. DeGroff and myself appreciated the danger so near and took all the necessary precautionary •anltary measures within our power to keep it out of our command, but in that we did not succeed, for the second day after the colored troops left season. The fact of the r-svalry troop bnng exempt from disease was not attributable to the choire of location of ground, for it was on the same IPVP! with the infantry quarters and not more than a few hundred fePt distant. The next question that I wish to bring emphatically before the people and the profession is, why was the cavalry troop exempt from this, epidemic, while others so near were so terribly afflicted?.-,. I will explain, as follows: At that time trip Post was not completed, and the men slept in a stone stable with their horses; and would it not be good logic to atlirm that the Cholera- germ was neutralized or rendered inert by the action of the ammonia cal gaa arising from the decomposed urine of the horses V And to follow that tram of reasoning still farther, in order to obtain some practical benefits from such experience, would it not be judicious to recommend, in case of any future cholera epidemic, to assume the customs of the Arabs, or to spray ytur homes liberally and often with spirits of ammonia in order to destroy the propagation of this deadly cholera- germ. Youra Respectfully, ,1. B. CRANDALL. Late Asst. Surgeon U. S. A., and Health Commissioner City of Sterling. >"* one of the quartermasters' employees that bad Tlsited their encampment was taken down with cholera. This case was the opening; others followed and in less than a week we had a dozen cases on hand, and we had the genuine epidemic cholera to fight in earnest Post Commander Henry Doug- lasa and hie estimable wife were among the first prostrated. The major made a brave fight agaiust the deadly epidemic and came out victorious. Owing to an unavoidable complication, we were not able to save the life of the brave and cultured Mrs. Douglass, who left a city home of elegance and ease to link her destiny with the joys and sorrows of a soldier's life, remote from civilization and home. The rapidity and fatality of this dreaded disease had a depressing effect upon the most of the troops and caused a stampede of many of the civilians and quartermaster employees of the post Much credit is due for the prompt and decisive plan pursued by Capt. William Thompson, who was in command of troop B, 7th cav., and was at this time the senior officer on duty at the post, who ruled with a hand of iron, and saved the day by establishing order. About this time Surgeon DeGroff was prostrated with nervous fev«r, so that the whole care and responsibility of the sanitary condition of the troops, employes of the post, and the entire management of the hospital department had been placed under my immediate supervision. If there .had been time to consider the question,(I should have said that ' I was too young and inexperienced to assume' so responsible a position.) I have acquired greater knowledge of the matter which Incites this artic. e But there was no time for thought, the . situation was before us and it was necessary to act, and to act promptly. The flrsf thing was to move the sick men "from the bottom up into tents on higher ground; had them scattered as much as possible. Then it was necessary to use all the artifice and strategy we could devise to obtain reliable nurses- Some of the most proficient were taken out of the guard house: even criminals were released and were put on the volunteer force as nurses, with the understanding that if they were faithful and survived their offences would be mitigated or pardoned. The epidemic continued its mad career and was at its height during the "middle to the latter part of August and continned with slight interruption during the months of September and October. We had showers of rain during ' the warm season but they did not refresh us as the ground was so hot that as soon as the rain struck the earth it would generate a hot steam that would / jrlse and almost suffocate a person that "'wasobliged to inhale the vapor. Many thought it worse than the great subterranean smoke that visits the wicked. In describing the Individual cases; most of them were taken suddenly; with no premonitory symptoms, with cramps in the stomach and bowels; with a rice water diarrhea; with continuous vomiting of about the same character. The blood would congeal or cease to circulate in the extremities. The hands and feet would'get cold. This coldness would travel towards the •enter of circulation, and as soon as it reached the heart the patient would 'die. Many of them died in less than eight hoars from the time of first symptoms of Invasion. The only rational plan of treatment gathered from this experience was to keep up the circulation in the extremities. This was most successfully accomplished by constant and contiauous friction with the bare bauds of some strong attendant that possessed a large amount of animal magnetism, with small and frequent powders of morphia to quiet pain, with •mall bits of Ice to allay thirst No liquid medicine would be retained for the first twelve hours. If we could keep them out of a stage of collapse for twelve hours our prognosis was generally favorable, aa moat of such eases survived and were ultimately cured. One singular feature of this epidemic, developed during its rage, which la worthy the serious reflection of scientists, as it may lead to as valuable rasulta u did the discovery of vaccination: The feature of which I •peak is, that Troop "B," 7th U. 8. cav- alvry, wen* exempt from the cholera; but the infantry, tbe quarter-master employees, the civilians, as well aa the officers and those living OB ranches fur a radius of seventy-fire miles about the fort, were brought ia for treatment. Ip all ctoiasa during the cholera epidemic there were »me elghty-ttveeaaa* with twMty*«iSbK oUs&tkft, which ws* cotuid- $£94 » v«r? credit*fel« t&owlog far Uis GIVING "LITTLE PHIL" THE SHAKt.

Sheridan and the members of his staff, on tho invitation of Judge Devins, met tbe judges of the supreme court Thursday morning. On the arrival of Don. Sheridan the full bench suspondnd business and received the general in the lobby. After leaving the court the party proceeded to the city hall, where a large crowd had collected, and as the general appeared he was loudly cheered. Mayor CXBrien and the city council received the distinguished guest, the general shaking hands warmly wilh those who were presented to him. . At 12 o'clock the party withdrew, and with Mayor O'Brien proceeded to Faneuil hall to attend the public reception tendered to the general. At the hall, while the band played "Hail to the Chief," enthusiastic cheers greeted the advent of Gen. Sheridan Jrprn the dense throng that flll«d the build- Ing. The general, accompanied by the members of his staff, Mayor O'Brien and tha city officials, took a place iu the center of the hall, bowing his acknowledgments to those in front, and then began the arduous work of handshaking, which lasted for some time, and many hundreds of citizens had the pleasure of a shake. During the afternoon the general left here for Salom. ERRATIC MISS COFFIN. She 8ay» Her Wnrdrobn !• Knongh to Drlvo a Woman Insnn*. NEW YORK, Fob. :). —Miss Coffin, the Cincinnati heirHss who is sal 1 to bo infatuated with an actor, is still in Jersny Cil.y. Fear of the little slip of paper which awaits her on this side of tho North river is what keeps her there, for this paper is an order committing Miss Cofllil to Bloomingdale asylum. Mist Coffin still refuses, in a blunt, curt fashion, all offers of assistance from strangers, and al tbe same lima persists in making unnecessary confldoncen to those whom she has met about the hotel, tine seems to 1« thoroughly posted as to her legal rights and limit 1 ) and attributes her demeanor to untoward circumstances. ..

" AilTertisInu" Milwaukee Beer. NEW YOKK, Feb. 3.—The American Federation of Tradm has issued « circular calling upon all members to light to the bitter end the Milwaukee brewers who are at outs with their union employes. The circular saysi "The action of these grasping, avaricious, and unfair employers should be met by a determination on the part of labor and labor's sympathizers to either compel them to do common justice to thoir employes or by giving our patronage to others, thus rendering their title 'employers' superflu/'.in," and closes: "Remember that Milwaukee beer Is made by non-union men."

It is said that when tbe footings are made up the order will show an increase of over 50, uOO members. In this state the report states that tha Increase has been more noticeable. In New York, Massachusetts and New Jersey tbe decrease has been marked, but the report saya it is less than was antlci pa tod. In tbe western'and southern states the knights have grown rapidly. • <v., A Ornnk Bun In.

I-MI tor <!ll7."t!.': I)nAn Sit::—In your weekly issue of the :.'Mth inst., 1 notice that your correspondent from Deer (!rovp triyd to throw a cast of oJium on the school entertainments that wore held in the Deer Grove school house on the rlh and lltli of the present month. If this injudicious scribbler, who trios to write up Deer (Jrove for the benefit of your valuable readers, had possessed the lirst principle of manhood, or Christian decency, he would never attempt to vent his contemptible spleen on school children in any of their innocent amusements. Your correspondent spoke of two stages of the entertainment which caused some little unpleasantness. If your correspondent was present at either of those entertainments, and observed more than one stage, he must certainly be laboring under B fit of insanity, or :i partial loss of the mental f acuities^ that, was brought') to bear upon this weak-minded individual through somnambulism, which was caused by the great anxiety this injudicious scribe has for the advancement of our-excellent school,—Now l-wa» present at both of these entertainments, and took particular notice of the good conduct and decorum, both of the audience ana the pupils Jwbo took part In the entertainment, and could see nothing but what was worthy of praise and commendation. It would seem to a casual reader of the GA/ETTK that this narrow minded individual from Deer Grove, would like to have it appear to the readers of the GAZETTK that Deer Grove is a little hades. There was an Irish writer, who once said that if you had any one you disliked and would like to have them out of the way, all you had to no wag to send them to II— or to Connaught. This narrow minded individual would also like to impress upon the minds of your valuable readers that if they had any one that they would wish to have out of the way, that all they have to do is to send either to H— or Deer Grove, and that they would not be troubled with them again.

' Feb. 1.—The marriage of Mr. Mathew Crichton and Misa Elizabeth Coats, of which mention was made in last week's GAZETTE, was a quiet and unostentatious one. They take their departure this week for Fairmont, Ne- hraskfl, where they will engage in the noblest of pursuits—farming. Mr. Crichton is in possession of those elements—honesty, truthfulness, Industry and sobriety—which constitute the true and manly man and insure success in whatever undertaking he engager. The bride is also highly estimable. A large circle of friends sincerely wish Mr. and Mrs Crichton prosperity in their western home and that the dark clouds of adversity and tribulation cast no lurking; shadows upon the pathway which leads them through the journey of life; but thatthe bright rays of cheerfulness and contentment be abundantly showered upon them. Miss Isabella Coats has been suffering from the effects of neuralgia of the head, but under the efficient treatment of Drs. Paul and McPhearson is convalescing. The grate in the Compton school house broke last week and the directors with their usual promptness purchased a new one, which is a decided improvement, appreciated by teacher and pupils. . . Mr. Hugh Miller haa been seltcteM as one of the jurors and will spend next week at the "hub". MrTC. Wolber thinks his horse which was so severely injured several weeks ago is permanently effected. Mr. Lawerence Piper has moved into the house on the Crary farm which was recently vacated by 'Bert Illggley. Mat Schwartz has rented the Cricli- ton farm and is .now busily engaged moving his personal effects to that place.._ Mr. (jraven Walker, of Fairmont, Neb., returned home last Friday after a two week's visit here. The plan to have an oyster supper und literary entertainment at the Fairvlew school did not meet with tbe approbation of the directors, so the entertainment will not be held. ' Mrs. Rickford and family, of Vermont, who have been visiting relatives here resumed their journey westward last Monday making Kossuth Co., Iowa, their objective point where Enoch Rickford, son of Mrs. Rickford resides. . ': Mr. John Williams is a candidate for tax collector. It is every voter's duty to support him at the election aa he Is qualified to discharge the duties of the office and has been unfortunate in receiving permanent Injuries which prevent bis following any active pursuit. Mr. John Morrow having sold his personal effects, will emigrate to the west soon. Mr. and Mrs, Samuel Myers, of Sterling, spent last week in Jordan. If you see a bruised or shattered nose in the vicinity it will be unnecessary to ask the owner for an explanation as a boxing club has recently been organized at Fenrose the members of which meet every Saturday night in the town ball to test their pugilistic propensities under the tutorage of Messrs. Paige and Sylvester. DON QUIXOTE nn Irish linen draper, after urging a hnn- dred obj ec- tions to the goods shown, finally said, "It's too narrow." Thereupon, the shop- mnn, in a rnye, unrolled the bolt, stretching it the full length of his store, nnd exclaimed: "Henvens! madam, look at the length of it I" And so it is with the hills of onr good friends, the doctors. Nnmerons cases are cited wherein those Buffering from protracted ailments, Hnch as rheumatism, neuralgia, Inmhago :vnd sciatica, after many yenre of unabated suffering, have spent varied small fortunes, ranging from five, ten, fifteen to twenty thousands dollars, all in vain. Then to be finally and effectually cured by St. Jacolw : Oil (price fifty cents per bottle, with full directions in eleven languages nnd to be ha<^of every druggist), is ft striking illnst- tration of long and short hauls. These cases are all ol them verified and are filed among the most valuable testimony to the virtues of this sovereign cure. One of the most remarkable copes of this, kind is the following: The New York Morning Journal publishes the following remarkable event: "Mrs. F. G. Kellogg, living at 50 East 80th st., in this city, wns partially paralyzed by being poisoned, as alleged, by a servant. She lay for seven days in convulsions, and although she employed the best medical skill, her case baffled their best endeavors. One physician after another was engaged and discharged, until seven different doctors had tried to •cure or help her and failed. She spent four weeks at a Health Lift, but her case remained ft problem which could not bn solved. She was nnnble to leave, her bed, nnd was as helpless as a child, not being able to use her hands. Her body wns in n puralyzed condition and her death wan looked for at any time. Salves, ointments, lotions, plasters, and in fact, nearly everything indorsed by the lending pharmacists, were tried until her cose was. given up ns hopeless.

Very mnny people do not keep the skin active und heiilthy as they ought; the fear of catching cold leads thorn .to neglect to maintain pcrluct cleanliness of tho body, and as the functions of tho skin ore Impaired, the work of throwing out waste material, which rightfully belongs to It, falls upon the Internal organs. , They will bear the imposition for a time, and will labor to do the work forced upon "them, but, sooner or later, they become weakened by the strain, and then the waste of the system accumulates within tho body and assists In depressing tho vital forces. Thus, by neglect to keep the skin in a healthy utate, many a person becomes dull and sluggish and disinclined to mental or bodily effort; all the organs concerned in life share in the disturbance, and become indolent and torbld. The need to maintain perfect cleanliness of the body Is, if possible, greater in winter than in summer, a fact which but few appreciate; and to tho neglect of this essential may be attributed much of the sickness prevailing In tho cold weather, which really ought to bo tho healthiest of the year.—faoston Journal (A Health.
