Cases of diphtheria under quaran

many tlmca the case la ao mild that
no doctor la called and no knowledgo

la suffering from a contagloua dlaeaae.
Thla, ho aaya, la the moat prolific

health officer knowi nothing of .the

Local phyalclana are aald to bo very
conscientious In tha matter of report

a nature that no phyalclan had bean

Dr. Norrla aaya, tho local practltlonara

that their well will "come In" with a
whoop within a few daya. And there
la no doubt but tbt both oil and gaa
haa been reached by the drill, the
question ret to solve 4s as to whether
or not It Is In paying quantities, and
It Is no wonder the owners feel tn
