Short Epidemic Catches
Many People in Heppner
What is said by Dr. A. H. John
ston, city health officer, to have
been an epidemic of food poisoning
was prevalent In the city Sunday.
Between seventy-five and one hun
dred people are estimated to have
fallen victims to the malady. So
far, evidence of only one attack can
be seen, says the doctor, and it has
been impossible to trace the origin.
""That the cases all came from one
source seems highly probable, due
to the simultaneous sickness, and it
may have been caused by impure
water, milk or some other article of
food that was partaken of generally,
probably at the evening meal Sat
urday, as the first symptoms com
ing to light were noticed Sunday
morning." This is the doctor s opin
ion, based on such facts as have
come to his attention. Various
symptoms have been reported, all
of which, he says, point to food
People are prone to blame such
-attacks on the water. It may have
Deen mat tne water was temporar
ily contaminated, affecting a large
number of people at the same time,
the doctor said. But, presuming It
was the water, only a . temporary
contamination occurred or the out
break would have been more gen
eral with new cases developing,
which seems not to be the case.
A peculiar feature of the epidemic
according to Dr. Johnston, Is that
more adults than .children suffered
from the attack. He believes there
is no cause for alarm over the sit
uation. Most everyone affected was
well recovered after twenty-four
hours, though a few cases have
proved more serious.

Frank Turner was in receipt of
the news on Saturday that the big

was on fire, and the result was that
the building was entirely gutted.
The structure was of stone and the
walls remain intact, and may prove
to be of sufficient strength to stand
reconstruction. The fire was re
ported to have started from the ex
plosion of a gasoline lantern which
was being used in' the basement of
the building while work of prepar
ing for the opening of school was
under way. The district was amply
protected by insurance, Mr. Turner
states, one of his companies having
the coverage. The loss will be ad
