Typhoid Situation Continues Serious

     The typhoid fever situation in this county, as mentioned in last week's issue, has experienced no relief in its widespread effect upon practically every section of the county.  The majority of cases is among children, although a number of critical cases exist among the adult citizenship.
     Among the late cases reported are Almon HORNER, well known lumber and mill man of Only, and his daughter Miss Berenice HORNER.  Both have been reported at the point of death the past several days and small hopes are being held for a recovery.   At Pinewood several cases are reported among the students of Pinewood High school.   Miss Wilma HARRISON, mentioned last week, is slightly improved.  Newer cases, which have become critical, are Monroe and A. J. PEMBERTON, 12 and 8 years of age and sons of Will R. PEMBERTON of near Pinewood; Raliegh S. CAPPS, former deputy sheriff and citizen of Defeated Creek; the three children of Mose TIDWELL of near Bon Aqua, and the young son of Mrs. Ida Shouse SPRINGER, teacher of the Bon Aqua school; Jesse J. PEELER, Jr., son of J. J. PEELER of the firm of Coble & Peeler; and the young son of B. B. BOOKER, also of this place.
     The county board of health met here on Monday, presided over by Dr. J. B. Webb of Goodrich and who is Hickman County health officer, for the purpose of inoculating school-children in the district and high schools thruout the county.   Miss Maude Spence, the county nurse, is assisting in this work which is now well under way and which service is free of cost.  Community physicians are giving valuable aid in the work.


     Mrs. Rosanna NALL of Dickson, is the guest of her son Sam NALL and Mrs. NALL.
     Mr. and Mrs. Arthur L. EDNEY and two children, were here Saturday from Sugar Creek.
