Sioux City Journal, 13: Citizen
of South Sioux City have been on th
war path for the past two days, it i,
said, as the result of a visit of aj

day and reported the situation to b.
conducted in perfect accord with thi
law. An inference has circulateu
with the report that has gone ove
the neichboring city, that the mayo,
of Sioux City believed that contn
geous diseases here had originated ir.
South Sioux City and entered Sioux
City because of lax enforcement ol
the quarantine laws of the Nebraska
city, several South Sioux Citianssaid
last night. Mayor Short denied last
night having made such a request
and further declared that he had no'
said and was not in a position to sa
where the prevalent epidemic in this
city had come from. He did say,
however, that he had written both
the Nebraska and Minnesota state
boards of health for copies of then
quarantine laws. This perhaps led
to the confusion and rumors that
spread over the neighboring cit.
The examining committee reported
that the board and physicians of bo.
Sioux City were taking extra good
care of patients and were complying
to the letter of the law in statute
enforcement. There were live cases
of smallpox in South Sioux City on
Thursday and two cases were dis
missed from quarantine yesterday.
Citizens of South Sioux City claim
that their contagion was acquired
from Sioux City.

owing to poor health was unable to
attend church service in recent years.
She was a member of the W, It. C,

lieve that they had passed through
the years of suffering that most of
them linvp experienced since they, or
their parents, wero driven from their
liotnes In Central Turkey flvo years
"For the accommodation of these or
phaus there arc sixty splendid stono
buildings, erected as barracks for the
Russian nrniy. These buildings are
now given to us by tho Armenian gov
ernment for n period of ten years and
lend themselves admirably to relief

"Thirty miles from Alexandropol, nt
Knrs, there Is another group of Rus

us by the Armenian government for
relief purposes. I was going through
tho dormitories of this orphanage nt

"In the hospital at Knrs I found
1,150 beds, which, tho day I was there,
wero occupied by 1,208 patients, It
frequently being necessary to put two
or more children In a single bed. At
Alexandropol we have In one hospital,
or group of hospital buildings, 1,500
trachoma patients. At Karaklls, forty
mill's east of Alexandropol we have
an orphanage devoted exclusively to
the care and trnlnlng of tho blind
children. At Delljntvwe have nnother
orphanage, located on a mountain side,
for the caro of tubercular chllUrcn,
this segregation being as much for
the welfare of tho healthy children In
