. VERY ANXIOUS
On Account of Case of In

Was Discovered Here
AFFECTS CHILDREN ONLY
Webster Building Closed and the
Children not Allowed in Any
Places of Amusement
History of Disease
The death of young Wanlta Ballen
tine after only two days Illness with
infantile paralysis, has caused great
anxietv amonsr the parents in Hllls
boro. The disease is almost always
fata! and if not fatal leaves the pa
tient a cripple for life. It only af
fects children. It is very contagious.
On account of the deadly character
of the disease and that every precau
tion may be taken, at a special meet
ing of the Board of Health Tuesday
morning the following action was
Motion made and carried that Sun
day schools, churches, 5c shows and
theatres admit no children under 18
years of age for the next two weeks.
Motion made and carried that the
Board of Education dismiss Webster
Building this week and thoroughly
fumigate the building.
Board of Health urges parents to
keep children off the public streets
and particularly the business section,
and from congregating together as
much as possible.
By order of Board of Health.
The following artlcla giving the
history and nature of the disease was
prepared by the Board of Health:
Since the summer of 1907, an epi
demic of acute pollomylltis, infantile
paralysis, has prevailed in the United
States. The disease first developed
in New 'iorkX-lty and a little later In
Massachusetts. In 1909 and. 1910 it
appeared in Wisconsin and Minnesota;
later in Iowa and Nebraska. In 1911
it developed in Texas. There have
been some few sporadic cases in this
state at various places. At Barberton
there were some 25 to 30 cases; the
mostnearly an epidemic we have had.
The disease has apparently spread
along the ordinary lines of travel.
The disease is highly contagious. It
develops during the late summer and
the fall months. Dustis supposed to
carry the contagion. It Is secured
through the nose, and throat, and
alimentary tract. The disease invol
ves the spinal cord itself and causes
paralysis of the lower extremities;
either one or both sides. It may in
volve the upper -extremities; one or
both sides, depending an the extent
of the lnflamation of the .cord and its
location. It does not involve the
membrane covering the cord. It
varies in its virulency from very .mild
cases to the most severe in which
death takes place In a very few days.
It is almost impossible to make a
positive diagnosis the first day or two,
or until the paralysis has developed.
Different epidemics vary In the
mortality. It most often effects young
children and does most damage to those
under three years. It does Infectolder
children and young adults. The
strong and robust are most- likely to
be infected. The worst feature of the
disease Is, that if it does not destroy
life, it leaves the little patients more
or less hopelessly crippled.
The symptomsof the disease are
variable from the most mild to the
most severe. "Very often the child Is
only droopy. Often the child appears
to have a mild rheumatism.
The disease begins with fever,
usually slight, sometimes diarrhoea
or vomiting, sometimes with a chill.
The patient complains of pain in
the head, back of the neck and lower
extremities. The child complains on
being handled. The syraptons are
often so mtld as not to excite the par
ents. In other cases marked cerebral
symptons develope, convulsions, and
twltchings and contractions of the
muscles. Sometimes coryzaand bron
chitis or sore throat. The child will
however lie very quietly and Is "apa
thetic and stuporous. These
toms vary from 1 to 2 days, and in
rare cases a week or two, when the
symptoms of paralysis are noticed.
The muscles of the Involved extrem
ities are very weak or flaccid, or .they
are completely paralyzed. It fre
quently happens that this is the first
thing the parent notices. If the
child lives through the initial stages,
tho danger to life is then not so great.
The question is then of overcoming
the paralysis of the affected muscles,
This takes a long time and continuous
Parents are urged that as soon as
any unusual symptoms develope in a
child, to call the family physician and
have the case closely and carefully
watched. Keep the children out of
the dust. A rairrhas been known to
check an epidemic of the disease.
Some mild antiseptic nose or throat
spray will do good In destroying the
disease germs if they have found a
lodgment in the nose or throat.
We trust the public will co operate
with the board of health In every
The disease should be reported

ease should be kept out of school for

of excluding members of the patients

iC0RN CUTTER AND CLUB
Used in Rffht Between Jo," Gs-
cpff nnil n P HniroWv...
The trial of John Gossett, charged
with assault with intent to kill on O.
P. Haggerty, was heard by Justice of
the Peace J. W. Kllse on Monday.
Tho alleged assault was made on last
Thursday morning, Gossett using a
corn cutter. The trouble occurred in
a corn field on the farm' of J. W. Hag
gerty about 3 miles east of town on
the Chllllcothe pike. Gossett was
found not guilty.
As a result of the trouble Haggerty
is carrying his left arm In a sling, the
ligaments on the back of his hand
having been sovered by a stroke of the
corn cutter. Gossett has a bad cut on
his head and his right arm is badly
bruised, the result he says of blows
inflicted by Haggerty witli a club.
The two men first had trouble about
a month ago and there has been bad
feeling ever since. They tell widely
different stories of the fight on Thurs
day. Haggerty Is the mall carrier on
Rural Route No 4. Gossett Is a small
farmer and day laborer and lives In
the Hospital building. He has lived
there about a month. Before moving
there he had lived on a small place be
longing to Haggerty just beyond the
abutments on the Chllllcothe pike.
When Gossett moved from the Hag
gerty place, he and Haggerty had a
disagreement over the ownership of
some fruit and tiie garden truck on
the place. At that time they almost
came to blows.
Gossett had In about 8 acres of corn
on the shares on the farm of James
W. Haggerty, the father of O. P. Hag
gerty. Thursday morning Gossett was
in the field cutting the corn. Hagger
ty had been down to the home of his
brother, Vernon, near Marshall, and
returning home passed the place where
Gossett was at work. He got out of
the cart, hitched his horse and went
over Into the field to see Gossett.
naggerty had a stick In his hand,
which he said that he had cut to use
as a whip for driving his horse.
Haggerty 's story of what followed is
In brief as follows:
That he went up to Gossett and
asked him if he was going to settle for
the fruit he destroyed before leaving
the place; that Gossett refused to
make any settlement and walked aw ay
from him ; that he followed urging a
settlement and telling Gossett how ho
had wronged him ; that while he was
talking to Gossett, wl bout any warn
ing or provocation Gossett turned and
slashed at him with the corn cutter
inflicting the wound on his hand;
that Go sett struck at him several
other times and that he defended him
self with the stick at the first opportu
nity turning and running away.
Gossett's version of the trouble was
about as follows :
That Haggerty came over where he
was tying a shock of fodder and said
with an oath, "Now I have you just
where I want you. Are you going to
settle with me?" That he said that
he didn't, owe him anything; that
Haggerty grabbed him by the throat
and pushed him back against the
ground. That he told Haggerty to go
away and leave him as he had heart
trouble and might drop dead In the
Held ; that he then walked away from
Haggerty and Haggerty followed him
cursing him and finally hit him in the
back of the head with the club, knock
ing him to the ground ; that Haggerty
kept striking at him with the club
and that he warded off the blows with
the corn knife, but that he never tried
to cut naggerty with it ; that he was
never the aggressor and Haggerty
brought all the trouble on himself.
There were no witnesses of the fight.
