Case of Small Pox
In the Country
A case of t mall pox appeared in
the country not far from Indepen -dence
the past week. It is in mild
form but the premises have been
rigidly quarantined to prevent any
possible spread. A few weeks ago,
small pox broke out in the family
of Joe Brown near Airiie. A quar
antine was promptly established
and rigidly enforced and there was
D.3 spread. There is small pox in
the country and has been lor some
time but its very mild. It exists
principally in the larger towns and
cities and because the new9 of its
existence ia suppressed, it occasion

a duty one owes to the public, that

an epidemic nature to consult a

that the law applies not only to
the spraying of diseased trees aDd
to the sale of impure spraying ma
terials. The law requires dealers
in spraying materials to give the
purchaser written guarantee of the
purity of the goods. This is an im
portant provision, for there have
been instances known of growers
buying materials that were not
only worthless, but really harm
ful to the trees. The grower went
to the expense of buying materials
and putting it ou the" trees and
without any return for his labor.
One grower it is reliably declared,
purchased spray material which
killed all the foliage on his trees
and will probably result in the
death of the trees themselves.
