The Board of Health Appoints Com
mittee To Investigate the Milk
Supply of the City To Discover
Cause of Infection, Owing- to Prev
alence of Cases Supposed to be Ty
phoid Fever.
The epidemic of disease in this city,
which is popularly supposed to be the
ravaging typhoid, Is to be made the
matter of an olllclul Inquiry und in
vestigation by tin! board of health.
At a special meeting of this body last
night, a resolution was adopted ap
pointing a coiniuittde to investigate the
source of the milk supply of Carbon
dale, which Is to be found In Ihe out
lying districts, to discover If possible
the ctuiM' of Infection if there be any.
The hoar I, however, made Itself clear
that it did not believe the wide-spread
prevalence of" In Carbondale to
be an epidemic of typhoid fever; and
If further requested the public, in a res
olution piesenled by Dr. John Nlles,
ihni It suspend Judgment in the case of
the milkmen of the city until after the
committee has visited the mill; supply
source and has made public tlie results
of lis Investigations. '1,'hls was done to
offset the criticism, harsh enough, that
has mistakenly risen In some (liiarters
against a few milk dealers, who hap
pened to supply patients who were af
terwards taken ill.
Doth Dr. Nlles ami Dr. J. J. Kelly,
president of the board, said that they
did not believe the disease to be epi
demic. Doth had numerous cases which
appeared to be typhoid, but which
ugreeably surprised them by subsid
ing in a week or ten days, while ty
phoid liiMiilably runs a course of sev
eral weeks.
Dr. Nlles was of the opinion that
these casm are a type of Intliie.nzii, a
grip, with symptoms of typhoid, but not
genuine typhoid, lie suggested that no
one circumstance could be blamed for
the outbreak, hut a comblnntlon of cir
cumstances, in which the, continued
damp weather was the chief one,

Good times
means good holiday trade. We felt the pulse of business
and got our Christmas goods in early. Lucky, we did, for
the crowds are coming already as they never ca'ine before.
. Now is the best time to shop. Said an editorial in a
paper a few days ago : "The prudent holiday shopper,
will visit the stores and make his purchases before the
eager rush and 4 crush of the season fully sets in; when
salesmen are not so busy as they will be later, and when
the selection of gifts can be made with comfort and.
Mr. Editor should have further said: Shop early in
the day before 10 o'clock, if possible.
-And buy your Christmas gifts from the store that
has your confidence and that has never abused it.
