A STARTLINd UEPOnT COMES HV TIIK
WAV l)F llOsrON.
The Boston U«[n\blioan says; In «
escrtud pnrt of Cumbriii^o, thorc has
en notii'ed lor llio pa»ttwo orthreo Sui -
a uumbcr of ooloriNl lucn, well
knuWD luepibeni of sovorni seorot sneiotios
Id Boston and CumbriJge, with their
headH close tojjethcr earnestly discussin}*
what weuied to bo a very serious matter.
They have been closely wntihed, but
Dothio”' could bo learned about the mys
terious meeting and ita object. The
thread which the KepubiicaD reporter
got hold of was as flno and lilaiy as ona
of the parts of a spider’s web l»ut ho fol
lowed it up closaly as best he cuuld and
this is what lie found.
It is a fact that there are in the cities
of Cambridge and Boston, colored mcD
who have been taking lessons frotu
Socialists and Kussians how to make
dynamite, bombs and other explosives.
The things has been going on for weeks
and the families of these men have
known nothing about it. They have
taken an oath whieh runs somewhat after
‘'We pledge ourselves that in case any
of iiur number should fall in the hands
of the white tyrants of the South while
cnga}:L‘din the holy cause of righting our
wrongs, wo shall never pnit'outUps as to
our number, strength, names or what wo
propose to do. That w« will willingly
die first, oven though the dc.ith be the
must horrible, rather than divulge any
thing which we hold to be sacred and
inviolable, so help me Ood."
This shows that these men mean bus-
inei!s. »nd that they are made of the
right kind of material. Tho Republican
ropieicntativo resolved to ferret out one
of these men, at least, and after traveling
about town and Cambridge for five hours
got the track of one. He was unwilling
at first to say anything, but on being as
sured that his name and identity would
be with.'jeld from the public for the time
being, he answered the questions put to
him. Among other ihings, he said:
“Vcswcnreall supremely in earnest
and will accomplish what we have in
mind. We shall retiirn to the South
where we weie born, and have made up
our miuds to do v«hat all oppressed races
and people have found it Decessary to do,
namely, to rid themselves of tyrants and
despots. We are determined that this
lynching baoging and other outrages
shall be stopped.”
“Are you going to take any colorcd
men in the South into your oot)fidenoc?”
“Yes, sir, wo are. There are colored
men Kcnttere^ alt over the South who are
interested in the movement. I should
really like to give you the names of the
places where they are, but of eouree it
would not do. You can put it down
as a settle and established fact, that' a
large number of colorcd men Jn the South
have made up their minds to give up
thtir lives iu order to secure. the tights
that belong to them,"
“Do you atid your associates purpose
to start light in and make dynamite and
bombs, and if so, take it South without
‘■Ye?, the plan is to got right at it.
We have no time to loose. So far as
taking it South, that is easly done.
There is not as much danger attached,
to it a.s is generally supposed, I thint
it is prudence to say nothing mote at
present, Tho country will hear from us
by and by."

UHIJBUOS AND DtSUASi:.
•V NKW ANM) HTARTI.INO THEORY AH TO
TllF. DKVKI.nPMENT «r TrilERCULO-
i\Vi8 Iha-i u RfyUU r.
Tho roccnt publication of a map of
Nt'W Haven shiiwing the number of deaths
frmu tuburoulosis in thi! past fourteen
years to be about 3,()0U and indicating
that thrroaro what may be called tubir-
culosis districts in the cit^, makes the
general sttl^ect of tuberculosis and its
propagation a niattet of present interest.
The theory of Dr. DcFosset, who pre
pared tho map, is, we believe, that there
aro ccrtain houses in the tenement house
districts that are favorable to tho spread
of this disease. Deaths from it have oc-
currcd there and are likely to occur
again. Infected houses are a means of
spreading the disease.
But has the doctor any knowledge as
to whether any of th(S3 houses which
he hat luarkoJ with numerous pin points
as the homes of tuberculosis are infected
with bed bugs? Tho question is not so
irrevalent as it may appear. The Medi
cal News, in a recent number, copied
from a German medical journal the re
port of tlio '.-ase of a boy eighteen years
old who had developed pulmonary tubcr-
culo.«is alter liaviog slept with a brother
who had died of the disease. The third
brother with whom the secoud had slept,
had likewise died of tuberculosis. They
presented numerous bed bug bites, and
it was learned that the bed in which he
slept contained a large number of the
parasites. Thirty of these were taken
and used in the inoculation of three guinea
pigs, all of which died of tuberculosis.
Cultures of tubercle bacili were also ob
tained from the diluted and liltercd pulp
of fifty of these bu;^. Cultures were
also obtained from bugs taken from
heulthy surroundings and brought into
contact with tuberculous sputum. The
bugs become infected directly from human
beings, or indirectly through tho medium
of the expectoration, or by transmission
from one animal to another. The trans
mission of tuberculosis from the bugs to
the human beings remains an open ques
tion; but the probabilities point very
strongly toward the possibility of infec
tion is this manner. .
This may be worth looking into. It
may be that it is loss bedbugs that New
Haveti’s tenement hou.sn ditrict wants,
not more ventilation or better drainage.
The bed bug is notorious for the way he
gets there, and he may be at the present
time inoculating hundreds of unsuspect
ing New Haveners with the deadly di.‘-
ease. The bed bug must gv>.
For it must be remembered that where
The Junebug has the wings of gold.
The lightning bug the flame,
Tho bedbug has no wings at all,
But he gets there just the same.

AN OLO TOPEU’S BUAIX.
HOW IT nURNED BI.UE ANI« SIZZLED
AND SMELT OF ALCOHOL.
St. Ijouis Globe- Democrat; I was
present at the autopsy of a noted old
rojnder of my town a few weeks ago,"
said John A. Holliday, of Troy, N. Y.
at the Lindell, “and I was startled and
shocked at what I saw. The dead mao
was about tiixty years and had been tho
town drunkard for forty years. Tho
doctors had surmised that when they cut
his hrad open a pronounced smell of
alcohol wonid issue from the skull. I
thought it only one of that grim sort of
jokes that tho vKsculapians indulge in
sometimes when they are carving a
follow-man to minceiucat in the interest
of their science. But I soon learned that
it was no joke for when the surgeon’s
saw had cut off the man's skull the odor
of alcohol that filled the room was strong
enough to almost sicken one. Then one
of the surgeons struck u match and held
it close to the brain. Immediately a
blue flame enveloped the entire portion
of the cerebral organ exposed, and the
quivering flesh sizzled as if on a grid
iron. That experiment and disclosure
set mo to very seriously thinking about
tho error of my way. I am not a tem
perance lecturer nor a prohibition poli
tician, but I must most respectfully and
firmly decline your invitation to have
something. I don’t want my braiu to
float around in a sea of alcohol, as did
that of the poor old town drunkard of
Troy. There is no tolling how many
other men's brains will reveal the same
condition if an autopsy is held upon
Speaking of changing one’s name the
Chattanooga Tt/ms says: It is alleged
that Mr. Whitclaw Reid, who was bap
tized Jacob Whitelaw, dropped the fir^t
name—Jacob—because it had a plebeian
sound, or becauso it was a Jewish name.
Both ideas arc probably nonsensical, as
the Jewish Standard asserts them to be.
Mr. Reid shortened his name, and in that
was wise. He is by no means the first
mao whose name bad been changcd or
modified before it appeared on a Presi
dential ticket. Henry Wilson, so-called.
Vice Presidential candidate with Grant,,
in 18G8, was baptized Jeremiah Jones
Colbath; he changed it at the aj^ of sev
enteen, by authority of the Massachusetts
Legislature. His chief on the ticketwas
christened Hiram Ulysses, and it was
changcd by the Congressman who secured
him a cadetship at West Point to Ulysses
Simpson, he having forgotten the lad's
name; but knowing it was double, and
that his mother was a Simpson, ventured
on writing it Ulysses Simpson in the
letter of appointment. The young man
adopted the new cognomen, and wore it
through life. The matter of a name isn’t
of much consequence. Character, not

We hate very much indeed to chroni

We learn that bilious fever was the cause

Politics, baseball and picnics seem to be
the topics of the day. Our people seem
to be very divided as to politics. Some
favor the old patriotic Democratic party;
some are for the Alliance, etc. Wo heard
a man of the Third party say that if the
Democrats remained in power ten years
the poor man would not be allowed to
vote. This was a good argument for the
colored people many years ago, but we
think it out of date now to talk that way
to an enlightened people.

Democratic party, they can make a good
