MALARIA IX IWPIRK MATER
And Sot Ho Much in the Air a is Com
monly Supposed All Trncrt of it
Banished by Artesian Wells.
The question ns to the effects eif the
drinking water used is entering largely
into publ:c discussion aDd the jirevailing
expression of opinion among those who
have studied the subject most closely, is
that the trouble is eiue. conlrjrv to what
seems to I e the generd impres-ion, more
to impure water than to impure air.
The Charleston News and Courier re
cently ncied the great attention that is
now leing paid lo this subject in both
North and Souih Carolina and if elec'ares
that the testimony is all one way the
way we have stated.
In a letter to the Si uthem Slates Maga
zine Mr. R. K. Rockwell writes that pure
water has etadieated malarial fever Irom
the town of Vinelanel, X. C. that the
water question has been receiving atten
tion "all over the country ,'- and that
gootl water is co-v to be had 'almost any
where." He add.-:
"The theory that. bad w;:t r and not
bad air is the cause of so much ehsiase.
and especially of what we Call ma'aria.
bus Ixeu proven true in eveiy iiiSiai ee
where a t&t has been maele.
"Lniil reci ntiy the people in this sic-;
tiou used only surtace water. Malaria
was prevalent and was attributed by phy-
sici.ins and all alike to impure1 air. Quin-

came a change. "Iu our town we have

been no other change but the change in
the water, aral the consequent "marvel

IMl'ROVI. WAIL F A IT 1.1 T I EH.
Other Ail vniilauei That Wonld Accrue
Should the Proposed Change on the
W. . A X. It. K. Take IMaee.
We announceel that a change of sched
ule evas m contemplation on the W. N.
v. N. R. Ii. which if adopted would
cause the two daily trains to swap runs,
that is that the regular passenger train
would leave Wilmington in the morning
and New Berne'in the afternoon and vice
versa. We pointed out at the time ol
making the announcement some of the
advantages that would result from such a
change if it were made and the mail
changed t. the passenger Ir on under that
schedule but there are other advantages
still thatC'iuld be mentioned.
The pa-sei gi-r train would ot course
have a quicker schedule and we woulJ
aecording'y get mail from Wilmington
aed fro ji along the line of the road earlier
in the day than we now do.
More-over, a freight train crrnnot be
r.-lietl upon to make its sciicelule time.
Here in the citv a delay causes a little
v.xa.ion but in the country it quite ofen
emails positive discomfott upon the mail
ageuts who have lo meet the train and lis
there on schedule tune and wait until ii
Son e of the post-offices, as De Bruhl's,
Dixon's, S oop Point amLTopsai! Sound
are fiom two tothree miles each distant from
i he point on the ro.icl where '.hey get ihe
mail, while Swansboro, Palo Alto',' Catha
rine Lake, T.-.r Landing and Gum Branch
are at siill greater distances, being as lar
away even as sixteen miles
And yet nil those who carry mail back
and forward between t he traiu and these
post-offices have to be em hand in time
and wait until the train arrives and s .n.e
of them meet the tiain a t places w her j
theiv is not even a station and have t
wait out in the weather whatever it may
be, we are informed, until it arrives.
We rather expect that the schedule that
Nvould be ananged under the change
would give those who coine to New
Beiue for a brief trading trip, a lit tie
more time in the city and it would give
the lull proposed time, whatever it was,
reliably. This would be good both for
the pcple near New Berne and fur our
mere! i ants.
It would also work well for Wilming
ton. Il would give quick and reliab'e
eommunicat on between the city and those
along the road. The Wilmington papers
especially would feel the difference for
their subscriber would then at the va
rious post-offices, know just when they
could get them and be all the better salis
rie I thereat.
l'ut one of the greatest advantages to
New Berue would I e the close connection
that could ther. be made at Wilmington
both North and S-.uth with mail that
leaves he:e in the alternoon making us
almost a day nheid of w hat can be done
now w ith matter mailed in the after
noon This would be a great advantage es
pecially in notifying of truck or other
shipments and in other business trans
actions wht re di-p.iie h is requited.
