the Instance of Senator Cu.kun of I tti -

was to be used In washing down the walls

! Electroione was to be the great agent by
which yellow fever was to be driven from

i cost of ISO.OfiC to the government, ami the
manufacture of electroione begun There
was also a royalty of *0 much per gallon

It U evident that electroione has failed
to accomplish Ihe groat things expected

that they are having a lively time with
