The microbes that infest the body are different with almost every form of disease. Borne of the germs breed in the earth, in filth or offal, and do not move in the air at slL Others J in the air. Some get into the body by contact, ethers by drinking water, eating food or breathing infected air. Some of the germs attack different parts of the body. In caes of hydrophobia, for insUoce, the germs are found in the nerves only. In case of a horse that died in an eastern ci'.y with general symptoms of hydrophobia, all the veterinary surgeons said that was what he had. A scientific man said it was anthrax, or blood poisoning. He proved it in this way: He took from the blood of the horse's liver a color of the blood and put it under a microscope of great power. The anthrax germs could be distinctly nen by anyone little worm-shapeforms with dark bands on their bodies at intervals. The nerves revealed no germs. A drop of the horse's blood was injected ander the skin of the rabbit and the animal died in 9 days. Its blood was alive with anthrax germs. Hog cholera germs will multiply in yellow wax, placed in a glass tube, until the wax is alive with them. A whitish spot will first appear and this will grow until it occupies the body of the wax. Ia a teaspoon full of wax there would probably bo several hundred thousand t d grmg. Now, disease germs of various kinds, with power to produce death, breed in cesspools, offal and ttlthy water, in Ggdun as well as other plaoes. Those who desire to avoid diseai of almost any kind should clean up their premises and do it at once. The sun favors the development of disease germs. Avoid contaminated wells. Almost any well in the central parts of the city is a breeder of disease. Use city water as tar as possible. Every man should clean up his premises to defend himself and neighbors. Those who will not do so, should be required to do their duty by the health officers. Clean up the city. THE BUSINESS SITUATION. Probably no other line of business ia a better indicator of the commercial state of the country than the railroads. Both ia the return of credit in the security a irket and the activity of traffic is this true. When railroad companies can float so can other concerns.

Editor Commercial: I believe that tha majority of your readers know the true cause of my quarrel with Mr. McKee, but in case they do not I wish to state it with all coolness and candor. The cadets have organized a dancing club and give At the March party monthly dances. liquor was brought by some of the guests within the academy grounds. In consequence of this the superintendent issued an order that no gentlemen should be allowed to attend academy dances without invitations endorsed in proper form by an appointed committee of cadets. Mr. McKee had no such invitation. When he arrived at the party last Friday night he was reported to me as being intoxicated, and I called him outeido the ball and told him that in accordance with order 8 I must request him to withdraw. At this time the smell of liquor was strong upon him. lie asked permission to stay to the close of the dance, in order that he might not curtail the ThU was pleasure of his partner. granted on condition that he should not appear on the floor. Mr. McKee claims that a general invitation had been extended to him by one of the Academy ladies, but this is not true. At the close of the dance he requested a few words with me and told me that he intended to thrash me on the first opportunity as I had personally insulted him. I said nothing. On the next day (Saturday) he came to the Academy with a friend, and enquired for me, so that he I but satisfaction, might have was in Ogden. On Monday afternoon he came to the Academy again with a friend and a pistol. He sent his friend to s&y he wished to see me. I invited him to the office. He came and demanded an apology, and waa told by Mr. Howard and myself to leave the house. He invited me to come outside the grounds and give him satisfaction. This I did after first telling him my reasons for my previous conduct to him. With regard to fair play, I know that he had it until that pistol was drawn. After that action he had no right to make I wished him to have fair complaints. play, and I did all I could to see that he had it. These are plain, unvarnished facts and after a perusal of them, it is not difficult for the public to place the blame where it rightly belongs. Yours truly, Amos C. Newill.
