BOSWELL IN FRANCE 3
In regard to the article of Dr.
Nlbley'a that it lie statement in the
Courier and attributed to me was
"quite untrue and very misleading,"
It seems to require an answer to pre
vent people from gaining a wrong
impression in regard to the situation
of the Influent epidemic.
1 wus not aware that I was tres
passing on the private preserves of
any doctor. It having always been
an Idea of mine that the medical
I profession should try to protect the
people from conlaKlotis dlscno as
well a treating them after t'icv
have ftcndlrcO it.
My rorords show 137 cases report
ed In the county since the beginning
of the epidemic, 53' cases of which
have toeen reported since November
28, and the doctor will admit that
there are more rases than reported.
For Instance, in the Garrett tamtjy
only one case was reported. In the
Geo. Morris family one case was
reported and that report was a
month in getting to this offloe. Were
there any cases in the Townsend
family? If so, no report has reach
ed this office and I want the doctors
to take notice that they are liable
to prosecution for violating the law
of the state when they fall to re
port, and I propose hereafter to try
and see that the law Is enforced
Whllo the article In the Courier
was not exactly as I gave it to them
over tho telephone. It was In the
main true and it was surely not
"misleading." but leading In the
right direction In letting the people
know the condition of this epidemic.
And further. It Is unbecoming any
member of the medical profession to
attempt to commercialize an epi

WHEAT FROM GERMANS
New York, Dec. 5. More than
137.500 acres of wheat were recov
ered from German occupied territory
in France hy the British and French
armies in the great offensive that
onded the war, says the New York
food board. This is believed by the
food officials to have materially
contributed to the food crisis which
helned to bring Germany to her
knees. This wheat was harvested
chiefly by the French. The work of
nearly 17,000 men was required In
the harvesting. The binding ma
chines and threshing machines were
supplied by the French office of ag
ricultural reconstruction and when
the harvesting was completed the
machines were sold at reduced
prices to farmers or groups of farm
ers who had been victims of tho war.
