ers has declared the old Palomas
road passing through the gap east
of Palomas mountain, public road
and free to travel. The man who
has it fenced and the gate locked
cannot charge 25 cents toll any

A case of scarlet fever has been
reported to the health office of Tu
cumcari this week. Proper guar
anteed regulations have been en
forced, and with the cooperation of
the public in all suspicious cases,
there need be little anxiety on the
part of the community. On the
other hand, any carlessness on the
part of a few people will jeopardise
all efforts of the rest. All suspic
ious cases should br reported at
once, in order that strict quaran
tine measures be adopted in all
cases. This may work individual
hardships, but it will at least pre
vent an epidemic.
