Washington authorities, was not wholly
mrpn.ine in the face of rumors that have
i turned lien for some time that tho Gov

honeycombed with Kraft. Provision for

over $10.iH,Ooo which Cuba received

t, T! f fact that the money obtained on the

The vist of Secretary Knox to Cuba in

For some lime it hns appeared that

that has thrown Moorcstown und the

terror with Its total to-day of thirty
two cases und one death.
This declaration was made this after

careful Investigation by Slate ln

Soon after their Investigation opened

has been one of the best In the county,

has developed the milk from this dairy
had been supplied to that home.
As a final effort to locate the source
of Infection the Inspectors made blood
tests of all the employees. The report
just received from the State labora

Stroud, show that the manager ut tho

whose efforts the dairy owes Its high

known among physicians as a "typhoid
"His blood shows the typhoid re

Stroud. "Yet the strange thing about

"With the milk supply from the dairy

using every precaution to protect them

Leonard and Capt. Howell to release
him or, if he must go back to New
York, to take him themselves.
"I will give you $500, Cupt. Howell,"
