SMALLPOX AT THE COUNTY SEAT
Is Said to be Spreading up the Valley—
Numerous Cases at Monitor
One of the Cashmere Record's sub
scribers at Monitor, writing about the
smallpox situation at the county seat
indicates that the situation is anything
but reassuring. During the next four
months there is great danger that the
disease may gradually spread up the
valley and reach our city. The people
of Leavenworth are interested in know

The writer from Monitor says:
"The smallpox is raging here. It
is raging worse in Wenatchee. There
seems to be no restriction on those
who have been exposed to it. Those
who have had it visit houses and homes
It seems as if there should be some
thing done at once to stop this. There
has been little or no attention paid to
our vicinity by the health board. No

It is interesting to note how differ
ently this question of direct legislation
is regarded in the different grange
states. Michigan favors it. So does
Maine. So does Washington, and
Oregon. New York does not, and
many other states do not. Why should
there be any variance ? If direct leg-
