Raleigh, Dec. 10 The November bul
letin of the State Board of Health is
devoted mainly to diphtheria, which is
said to t e more than unusually preval
ent in North Carolina just now. Of
course every cause cornea from a prev
ious one. '. Anti-toxin, in a small dose is
a sure preventive and in large doses,
promptly and properly administered,
almost a sure cure. The bulletin says
that slate and common drinking cups in
the schools shou'd be abolished. The
Raleigh public schools have drinking
fountains of the latest pattern which
dispense with cups. Membraneous
croup is diptheria of the larynx. The
bulletin reports, diptheria in 48 coun
ties. Several of these in mant cases.
Typhoid fever is reported in 53 coun
ties, malarial fever in 25, several of
these being western counties. Small
pox is only reported In four counties,
Alamance. Bladen. Randolph and
Wake.

Morehead City, Dec, 8. Yesterday
afternoon about four o'clock Captain
Pough, of the Fort Macon Life Saving
Station, was Rtartled to realize that
the embankments, large breakwaters
and large pier were settling. The large
breakwater in front of the main build
ing has completely disappeared, and
there is now over fifty feet of water,
where only prior to the giving away of
the heavy rocks there were three feet
above the high water mark. The large
wharf in front of the building settled
until the water would not let it settle
any more, uaptain rough said tnis
morning there is over fifty feet of wa
ter where generally there was about
eight or ten feet on an average high
tide.
- Captain Pough called bU men out and
they moved everything they could out
of the station, for fear they would be
swallowed up. He says the main build
ing is all intact now but in a dangerous
position. Capt Pough lost all his wood
which he had for the winter which he
had piled along the breakwater. He
said there was no shock or anything to
attract his attention but the gradual
settling of the earth, gave warning of
the trouble. There are large cracks on
the hills showing the division of the
erth now. The disturbance lasted
fully forty minutes. The foundation
around the east end of the building has
settled about five feet
The citizens here think the trouble
was caused by the gradual heavy cur
rent setting in against that point of the
beach, and cut a subteri anean channel
under the breakwater and beach.
Later At five o'clock the beach has
sunk to within two feet of the Life Sav
ing Station. The beach is now gradu
ally sinking, and the doors in the main
buiiding cannot be closed. The beach
has given away about ten feet during
the day. The Station and all buildings
are expected to be swept away at any
time.

J. E. Latham's Weekly Cotton Letter.
Special to Journal
New York, Dec 8 The ginners re
port to be issued Monday and the
Agricultural department's estimate for
Tuesday are looked forward to with the
greatest interest, and the course of the
market this week indicates that these
reports are expected to sustain big crop
views. I think a ginners report of ten
and a quarter million bales, and a crop
estimate growth of twelve and a quar
ter million bales, is about the average
expectancy of the trade, to the growth
estimate should be added the linters and
samples which w;ll approximate nearly
one-half million bales. It is also well
to remember that the government esti
mates have heretofore been under the
final out-turn, the most important ques
tion is "'What size crop is discounted in
present values"? To those who have
the pluck and the money to stand by
their positions, and buy if necessary. I
think cotton should be bought before
the report, on the possibility of esti
mates under the expectancy. Unless
the estimates point to a commercial
crop "of over thirteen million bales, I
don't expect any tremendous decline
and believe that purchases made around
this level will be very profitable to
those who have the staying quali
ties.

Greensboro, Dec 8 At yesterday
afternoon session of the Baptist State
Convention, the Committee recommend
ed Wilmington as the next place for the
State Convention. There was a very
earnest effort on the part of many to
pass a substitute designating New
Bern as the place, members from that
section, re-inforced by some from the
East advocating New Bern. The New
Bern forces were lead by Rev. W. A. .
Ayers of New Bern, who was assisted
by Rev. Baylus Cade," T. T. Speight, J.
M. Little and others, made such a fine
impression, and looked like success
would attend their efforts, Rev. Brax
ton Craig of Rocky Mount D. L Gore
and Rev. F. B. Hale of Wilmington
came to the rescue of Wilmington, warn
ing the Convention of the danger of be
ing swept off its feet, declaring itcame
near that thing twice this morning,
over the Baptist University matter and .
the fifty thousand dollar State misson
appropriation by the inspiration of the
moment. The vote being taken the
substitute was defeated and the rec
ommendation to meet at Wilmington
was adopted. Salisbury gave notice
of expecting the next convention, while
Fayetteville and New Bern both made
similar claims.

"Authors," "Natural History" and
