lu, ure more than is safe for the well
being of tho place, not, perhaps, from
tho danger of mob violence, but from
the very likely creation of new Infected
districts from n sanitary standpoint.
All honest, thinking people endorse
the Hoard of Health's action In burning
infected buildings; nothing purifies so
