NEW THEORY-OF DIS8ANK.
The philosopher-of the New , York
Times is the best humorist connected
h the press. ' He does not write
fuijny paragraph, but he writes es
says of a hnmoroas Vein that are quite
redehing. His last is on "Musio
any uisease. ' TI a s rencn nnvsician
hal discovered that "musical i os tra
in ents can be used with excellent ef-
i in the treatment of many diseases,
jecially those, affecting the nervous
iiom. .-1 hue, for neural eic naios in
head he prescribes a' tuning-fork.
e iusiroraent .is held close to the
head of the patient and made to vi
brate; The immediate effect is that
b patient becomes drowsy, and bis
n etrows less and less, until at the
eid of Gfteen minutes it completely
disappears and he1 falls into a sweet
sliep. The same able - physician has
(fund that the sound of a drum stim-
ates persons suffering fromnervoas
haustionjj and id in many other cases
i exoolleut tonic' The time will
h : at hand soon "when the shops of
ii usical instrument' makers will su
p;rcede the drugeiats'- shops, and
hen doctors ,will write prescriptions
calling for horns and flates instead of
rugs aud lotions."
Fhe philosopher treats the matter
gravely, and refers t to the prescrip-
ioii the Court physician gave King
Saul, prescribing David's harp, to be
akeu three times a day, half an hour
before each meal. , It is well known
hat unless the ajr is set in vibration
here can be do muaioal sounds. It
8 said that during the great plague
it Loudon the streets were filled with
ingerB.'' Bad music is sure ' to pro-1
mot.- disease . as good, music cures.
Such, as we gather, is J the
general idea of the philosopher. He
is clearly of the opinion that it
was the.bacf singing at night whieh
produced the plague in London. If
tins alarming theory be correct, and
who will contradict it, what will be-
come of Wilmington ? The plagne
or some other fell disease wilt -come
inevitably in -,spite of the Board of
Health.1' The "troupes of wandering
minstrels who make night hideous are
enough to produce and disseminate
the most , fatal diseases. The tnneb
they bellow singing they call it) are
enough to cause th& black death .or
the white misery, if it be fact; that
the vibration, of tfte air is oaased by
such tnoes as In the morning by the
bright ligbi,? 'radderEpbam cangbi
a coon," and Them Golden Slrppers."
But after all, . we 'are . eomf orted
with the assurance i the i philosopher
that where there is no musio there .is
no plagne. He says: : f ; ,;.J, i'
"The plague baa never j visited countries
w here singing and playing oa musical : in
struments i unkopwo, and H Jim -proved
far more deadly id cities woete iboae prac
tices obtain than in -country places ' where
mua c 4b seldom f heard. ; What were the
nsriicalar song which produced; the grea
plagues of Bistory no one; now knows, nut
itiote woo listened to the Harvard -psrior-miincef
tbeehorusesof ? the J'0BdipusH
vta iedily aodersUodlhat the singing : of
Greek cboruserln' Athens would fully sc
c uai for the plague' so forcibly described
y Tbucydides.' ; : " 1
This information is valuable and is
to be commended to the - speoial at
tention of, oar. municipal j authorities
ami the County Board of Health.
Buf there ris. one other - point. It is
not only singing tbat causes disease,
but musical instrument? are said to
be highly productive of fearful visi
tations. .The philosopher says some
instruments are "simply pestilential.
But he ta so fall and satisfactory jnst
here we must : quote again. He , says
feelingly and -finely: ;. s i :
"Chief amonz. these is tba cornet.' It
fatal icfiuence extends to animals as wsli
aa men. xne . Americas pig, has. wilted
under the blasts ot the .cornet mea who
nave piayea in Chicago and Cincinnati, A
few years sgo our pigs were healthy, and
cornet pltjiMg waaarintost umkoowdi Now;
tnere are BCOiS4Lcoroet players in every
City, and our pigs are so unhealthy that the
uemptfcaeenrmadetO' refuse them ad
t&ittaicetaEuTopettiCountries. This can
not be a mere caiveidenee, ; The ti ue : ex
planationor it is that the. peculiar vibra
tions of tbe cornet render the air deadly to
pigs and. mates the Western pig men rec
ogaize this tsctnhey: will sooner or later
fladUbat their pigs bave perished, and that
the prospeTttv 'of XJhicago and Cincinnati
la at sb end. m s
He says when Levy introduced the
cornet mNew York., the death-rate
began to iserease. This is alarming.
Where if the remedy ? If Guy
Wright's flagiolet and the cornet are
dangerous to health Wilmington is
doomed, and the people living within
'three squares of
the City Hall will
the : undiscovered
goon pass j "to
INCNPaSVlTABXE TALK A BOOT,
r Tbe steady tnoi ease in the cotton
crop of the South is not necessarily a
sign of pecuniary health. In 1860
the greatest: crop, up to that time,
was raised. It amounted 10 4,823,770
bales. In 1880 ; the cropr exceeded
this - by . more than 1,500,000 bales.
The smallest crop, prior to 1873, after
the war, brought a great deal more
than tbe largest crop.' If the Southern
planters would grow but 4,000,000
bales, they would get more for it than
they will get for 6,000,000 bales, pro
vided they would not exceei the for
mer amount for a term of years.
They would then have time to make
something for man and beast, y There
is less intelligence shown by the plant
ers than by any mother class of men.
They strain every nerve to make all
the cotton they can, when it is cer
tain the larger the crop the less price
vill be secured. Let 8,000,000 bales
made in 1881, and cotton will fetch
7 or 8 cents. ' ;
The planters make a large crop of
cotton at the expense of all other
crops.' They keep their hay j fields
and smoke houses m the North. They
neglect their stock and have to re
plenish from Kentucky, West Vir
ginia, Ohio, &iv They think it. wise
to; raise but one, crop ajnd. to buy
everything ihey cuBsome. . V.
Is it a matter -of surprise- 'that the 1
small i- farmers have mortgages on
their; crops or . lands, or both, and tbat
the large farmers grow, poorer often?
Until the South learns two things it
will not be great, prosperous, and
rich-like the North is.
First, it must learn to manufacture
its raw material -its cotton, its wool
its iron, its woods, &c The profit is
in the manufacture. .. .. -.t-WJ v; ;
Second, it must raise all that it
consumes." . :
After TaiBing its breadstuff, stook,
&ci it may then wisely make all the
cotton and tobacco it can. We
again say, that great - cotton , crops
are not signs of: thrift. It -costs a
great ; deal to make large cotton
crops, especially if you go abroad to
buy all you consume whilst you are
making said crops, i It is Baid the crop
of 1881 will be much the largest yet
predated. Read tbia from the New
York Sun: :Hj; 11
"If the season progresses favorably the
Sonihern Stales will nave nearly twice as
many bales of cotton to sell this autnma as
they raised on the yearly average in the ten
years before the war! Emancipation has
been, in truth, a great blessing for them."
; It is no sign that emancipation is
a blessing because the eottonr cjop-, is
BQ much larger than - if was before
the war. The South' has it in its
ppwer to regulate the price of cotton
and to keep-it at from ?Q cents a
pouod andnpward It.; has: but to
reduce the crop to 4,000,000 bales or
less, and keep it there. In three years
every1 pound of Southern ! cotton.
would fetch 20 cents or ! more.1 The
Soath wcoUd then grow rich, for i; it
would get r more foe ' the 4,000,000
bales than it- gets for 6,000,000,- and
would raise all it consumes, 'thereby
saving millions. Bdt you would 1 do
a wisely to go. to Bald Head , and
sing psalms or preach sermons to the
tambUng, Vpjishjrtg a waves v, as sato'
preach this lessor , of common 8eq8e
to i ther Southern j i cotton raisers.

A catalogue is nublio Dronertv'

Information and electioneering. . It

tice briefly the last catalogue -issued
by tbe 'University.' This1 c'atal6gU6
ts got up.on the "titled" plan. Every
$ody must be something, even if it is
bo more than ; Enquire, and that
i?ieaD8 very little you know.! Aside
from the injustice done , to several
well known gentlemen, it ,bj; not in.
simple severe taste to parade titles
so conspicuously - in a plain thing
ljke f a catalogue.- We1 ''notice that'
some gentlemen . have the prefix
Hon." who ; have not the - slightest
claim upon it according to the best
usages that have ipreYaibsd: amngnhe gionine; of ne enUrprtses
A. . , .. -t - . i .
the true,'s represdntativo-' people of
the" South in the pasCAlI men
who happen to hold State offices are
thus dubbed. ; Then there are. others
who J are v ; "Honorables," who. . are
placed without it. There is a-Confederate
' Cotonel. v who fc is named
i . . .. . . .
"Hon.," but who is not entitled to it.
Ife appears as simply , "Esq."K .Then
there are ..some ;, two or , Uiree .who
were not in the war who are paraded
as "Colonels." ' There are 'three ex
members of the Legislature who
have the prefix' "Hon.," but then
there are three or four other . mem
bers every way . equal, to them who
are simply ."Esqis." Why this nn-
fortunate discrimination ? i; :
: By running after titles confusion
aid injustice follow. Men do not.
like to be slighted. There is a Cout. L
federate - Captain or two who are
written down Squires, just as if a
gallant soldier of that grade was not
deserving of wearing his title. But
Captain was too insignificant possi
bly. If j all of j.. the: names appeared
without any affix or prefix it would be-
more simple andtallefal, we( think
and, would prevept ; confnsion andi
heart-burnings. What must a genu
ine live Colonel, who won his spurs
on! a dozen hard foughten" battle
fields tuink when he v sees himself.
trbtted ont amid a host of "Honor
ables" and "Colonels" as plain Squire,
when, next to him there are gentle
men's names with the title "Colonel"
prefixed who have been members of
the peace establishment all their days
and , never did any more . fightinc
than did Jack Falstaff at Gad?s Hill
or Parolles before Florence ? '" It is a
good time to introduce ' a reform in
College Catalogues. But, there may
be, a protest just here, for. the ordi
nary American loves a title better
than any flunkey - who ever hong
around a noble house or an European
Court begging for honors.
tThe University catalogue is well
printed. The Faculty; is well "filled
mostly by young, earnest and scho
larly men. There were 191 matricu-
laws tauring tne iass scnoiasuo year,
