Disease Confined to One Solitary Case and
Every Precaution Taken io Prevent
The past week has boon n busy omi
for iiii' merchants, notwithstanding
thotopoit which tuts h p tend thiough
tliu county thai thu smallpox was in
lied Cloud. Wo say scat 0 ami ihut is
just what we menu. There nru bill
few eli&oases that can create .such
n seal c art can smallpox, and at thu
saino time thu death lute fiotn smallpox
is far below tho death rate fron diph
theria, typhoid fccr, pneumonia aud
other contagious diseases from a given
number of cases. Hut as to the small
pox scaio in this city. Uu Tuesday,
December 11, a gemug man by thu
name of Kmciton who had been work
ing over iu Uhi field township, came
to Hod Cloud and was taken sick at
the homo of (J. M Uibbuy. 1 he next
day symptoms of small pox began to
develop, and in an ineieiliuly short
time all kinds of stones were alloat
about smallpox in the south end of
town At this point the city aulhoii
tics began 'in investigation, winch io
suited in the dUttict in which thu dis
ease was, bciug quuiantiuul. A fence
was built across thu bi idge road and
guards stationed around tho quni un
titled ilisli let so that no one could gut
within two blocks of thu infected
hoii-.ii, and all who weru known to have
bueu e.Niobul were put within the dis
trict Thisquaiantine has since been
maintained vciy strict. In addition
to this thu city nuthoiities stationed a
guild at thu luilroud crossing with in
structions to stop people fioni Cat Held
township who wctu known to have
been exposed to the disease over tlieic,
where it eamu fiom, and thtough some
potties being turned buck a lepott has
gained eiedunce that this city was
qu iraiitiued, aud no ouu could gel out
or in. Reports citculatcd in different
putts of the county ate to the effect
that Ihetu nui ftom ouu to tiftecn eases.
These stotiesaie all eiioiieous. The
true facts of thu caso are that theio is
one caso of what is supposed to be
very mild smallpox in thu extteiue
southeast part of the city, three-quar
ters of a mile from the business part of
town. It has been there ten or eleven
days. No uew cases have developed
among those supposed to have been
exposed. A sli id quarantine is main
tained over thu district and a person
could not gea clone enough to bo ex
posed it tbuy wai ted to. The qu.iran
linul (liit ic. tu d tho housi s therein
are fiiiui.itnl twice, daily .nid also
moslot tliu cinut houses in , lie south
en I. Kvetyi iu in thu south cud of
town has been vaccinated, and theiu is
absolutely no fear of a spionel of the
contagion. Tho disease is ptuvalent all
over the state. Dr. Towne, of Omaha,
picsidunlof tho Mate hoard of health,
ropoits homo 250 or liOO cases, mostly
in the cii-icm pint. Iu poakingof thu
disease ho Mtjs "hat "u is a very mild
form and Unit as . i uhi Hit; putiont suf.
fors no ineoiivetileuca except a slight
fever until tho xiipeatancu of the pis
tules, uud that thta is largely the cause
of thu spread of thu contagion. Wher
ever the proper quarantine and disin
fecting methods have boon observed
tho contagion is readily checked," This
is what has bueu done hero and thero
is at present no more danger of taking
the small nx in this city than thero is
iu the couutiy norm of it. In addition
to the above pn-cauitous lbomaor has
rt queued that no public gatbetlngs bo
held until ii is a ccitainty that tho
plague has been wiped out, aud thuro
will be no uhuich nui vices and thu
usual Christmas Men services will bu
dispensed with Tho Fireman's danco
aHnrti-ed for Christmas evo has also
I been called oil, In conclusion wo will
I sny thai theiu is little fear of a upload
I of the contagion in this city, and fiom
'pio.-out Indications the disease will bo
eonlitied to the ouu ensif, and no onu
I need be afiahl to conic to town on tie
'count of it.
