Cincinnati, May 5.-Additional re ports of the' ravages of spotted fever near Franklin, Tenn., have been re ceivcd, confirming and augmenting the horrors briefly reported last week. The disease is unusually fatal, nine out of every ten persona attacked dying. The fever had a brief run in Sumner and Webster counties aboiit two months ago, but disappeared and tlio people were greatly elated at their seeming escape, bvtt last week-it reappeared and within forty-eight hours of. its coming had taken five lives. Since then a dozen more have died and the people of the stricken districts have about concluded to abandon it forever, as this is the fifth visitation of tlie fever. Farms and all kinds of stock can be bought for a song. The origin of the disease U not known.
