Dr. Gerdine says that there was
probably as much sickness here last
fall, bnt it was of a mild character
and bad nolhiog of the malignity that
the fevers have now. Ae to the
causes for these fevers he thinks that
the condition of the city has much to
do with it. It has been fearfully u»g.
Iccted and was never filthier, perhaps
than it is right now. No one looks
after it and thero is enough filth and
decomposing matter on the streets,
in roar of tho stores, on the lots of
citizens and about the sewers to gen
erate all kinds of fatal diseases. The
dirty condition of the city there can
be no mistake about, and all can un
derstand how disease is produced
more readily than it it was kept in a
clean condition. He tkought too
that the river has mnoh to do with
the sickness. The dam at the factory
has been let off several times this
summer and eaofi time malaria was
generated which filled the city and

Dr. Pope has had more cases of
intermittent ferer than at any time
! We have lo patience with people
who talk about ‘encouraging South
ern literature.’ Whenever literary
work deserves encouragement and ap
proval it is very sure to get it, aud
it matters not whether its author was
cradled under the elms of Concord,
or roared amid the roses and jessas
mines of Dixie. A literature distinct
ively .Southern would be abnormal
and unhealthy in this great re
public of English speaking, book-
loving people. There may bo and
are great difference), among the pub
licists of nations which differ in
tongue, ancestry, traditions, purposes
and interests, but no such conditions
exist here, and we shall not stop to

Having premised this much, it ie
with great pleasure that we ice that
contemporary opinion is becoming
quite favorable, and indeed commend
atory of the literary work of several
young men of tins State. We pre
sume that many of our readers will
know at onoe that our reference ia to
Sidney Lanier, Joel C. Harris and
Henry W. Grady. Ot the first of
these, most unfortunately, a brilliant
and moat propitious career has been
[ arrested by,his untimoly death. Mr.
Lanier lived long enough to deserve
and receive the qpqualiflpd admira
tion of many ot tho finost and most
cultured intellects In America. The
others are familiar fiiends.
Mr. Harris is most widely known,
perhtpe, as the author of 'Folk Lore
of the old Plantation,’ and is the cre-

nalists of tho great Northern papers.
It is. however, in the inimitable
charm of hit Uncle Remus stories and
lyrics that Mr. Harris is so dear to
all lovers of humor, and to all who
can appreciate the simple pathos in
the life ot the old plantation darkey.
Henry W. Grady is an Athena
bor. He took to journalism because
be couldn’t help it. He is in our
opinion the most brilliant descriptive
writer on the newspapers of the day.
No man has done more to advertise
our goodly Southland than he. His
rcoent article in the October Harper
is a moat able and vigorous resume of
our cotton production—its profits, its
future. Embellished by tne grace
ful and anisiio skill, of Miss Frank
lin, another Athenian, this article
should be read and enjoyed by all, at
any rate, who livt in the sound ot the
Univenfly belle. Athena ia proud of
Grady, and most of her people love
in him a gentle, kindly'nature that
never resent) an injury, and has no
word ol ankindnM* even forthoto
who criticise, detract or malign. In
the hands of men of this sort' South
ern Literature 1 beoomee distinctively
American, and people North and
South will not be slow to appreciate
and reward it. ;
