family, Health Officer, D. L. Owens, has quarantined the following families: Harry Black, David E. Evans, Ellsworth Davis,
Jonathan Reese, B. S. Williams, Charles Knorr, Edward W. Davis and Mrs. Sarah
Mahan. About twenty-five children are afflicted with the disease but all are

by reason of the temporary withdrawal of so many of its pupils.
