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 produced sickness. AILY BANNER.

He had no donbt bi filthy condition of the city manner in which the river bad turned off daring the hot weather canted much of the sickness. 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 ascertain the ‘locale’ of an author’s birth, provided he gives us a refresh ing draught from the “well ot En glish undefiled." 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- stic and Royal Panel Portraits I EXPRESSLY I OR OUR Grand Flxli fblt at WORLD'S COTTON EXPOSITION ?” IS’ PRJEMIUM GALLERY ! es For Artistic and Superior Photographs, AWAY pictures Copied and Enlarged. aordinary Attractions!

It it delightful to Mr. Harris’ friends to see how Isrgely he Is quoted by the moet advanced jour 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. ; A Warning to Silly Girls. During a recent engagement of the Mapleson Company, in Chicago, the young daughter ot a well known phy.. aitian ot that city beoame violently emilten with tho handsome baritone, and wrote bun a number of notes finally sending him her photograph. As she was very pretty, the singer neutrally requested an interview, which, she declined, fearing to die- olose tier real identity, whereupon be visited the photographer who had taken the picture, and obtaining the real name and address of the original wroto to her saying that if she did not give him g20() in exchange for her (picture and notes that lie would publish the photograph in the Police Gazette. Tin's threat had the desired effect, and the frightened girl sent him every cent of money the had and her jewelry. Columbus. G a., April 12,^878, Dr. C. J.
