Hf 5 ^sr^T: VOLUME 46 IOWA IN GRIP OF SCARLET FEVER The Disease Rages in Denison As in Other Towns All Over the State. AMUSEMENT PLACES CLOSED Board of Health Closes Doors to Chil dren Under 18 at Picture Shows and Public Gatherings. It would appear that a wave of scar let fever is passing over Iowa. The children of many towns are affected and Denison is among the number. It is reported that there are twenty-three homes under quarantine in Denison to day. They are scattered in every por tion of the city. As usual, the ques tion arises whether it is better to suppress the news of the epidemic or the epidemic. While the business in terests of Denison are valuable, the life and health of our little ones are of infinitely more value and we be lieve such public measures should be taken as will best safeguard the chil dren without regard to any other in terests. In fact, however, we believe that strict measures for stamping out the disease will in the long run be much better for business. In regard to quarantine measures, let us concede at once that all are actuated by the highest and most un selfish motives. The question has arisen as to whether the public schools should be closed and for the present it has been decided that they should remain open, but that all other public places where children are wont to con gregate should be closed to them. We respectively beg leave to protest against this decision. In our opinion no more perfect means could be found for spreading a disease among chil dren than through the public schools. I The children go home at night into W neighborhoods where the disease al exists, ithey play about the -.1 -V' streets or with the younger children who have been at home, gather up all the disease germs in the vicinity and take them to school the next morning. There they come in contact with chil dren from all parts of the city, re main with them during the day and then go home at night to repeat the process, taking home any germs which they may have picked up during the day. It appears to us like a perfect circulating medium. It is true that the rooms are fumigated each night, but the children are not. It is also true that the teachers are as careful and watchful as possible. It is fur ther true, however that one little chap was in school until the writing teach er put his hand on that of the young ster and found that the skin was peel ing off. It is also true that one phys ician reports that he was called to a home and found that the mother was affected with a light form of the dis ease from which the two children were just recovering and that they had not missed a day of school. It is also re ported today that one of the teachers of the high school has been taken with the disease. Under our system that when a pupil is absent he must make up all his work the brave little chaps will suf fer a great deal of pain before they will acknowledge that they are sick enough to stay out of school. It is a serious matter to the youngster to fall behind his class and get out of step with his fellows. This pressure and worry adds to the sickness of those who are ill and prevents others from owning to it. In sending your orders specify what kind of post cards. Imported Post Cards at 1 Cent Each.

Beautiful Hand Touched Easter Cards 1c each High Grade Embossed Cards 1c each It is argued that it is as well to have the children in school as to have them playing at large upon the streets. With this we quite agree, but we believe the time has come to close the schools and all other public places where chil dren gather and to pass a strict health ordinance compelling parents to keep their children'on their own premises until such time as the disease is abat ed, and that parents failing to do this should be punished by a fine or in ex treme cases, if necessary, by imprison ment.

I*fc THULtKE^... jpJDN^pnA-": SERIOUS ACCIDENT TO BRIDE AND GROOM Henry Stender and Bride of One Week Thrown From Wagon on Last Saturday. MR. STENDER SERIOUSLY HURT Both Taken to Sam Fox Home in Par adise Township, Where Mr. Stender Lies Unconscious The breaking of a neckyoke to a wagon in which Mr. and Mrs. Henry Stender, of Paradise township, were coming to Denison last Saturday, caused an accident that may prove fatal to Mr. Stender. Mr. Stender and wife, whom he had married only last Tuesday, were in a lumber wagon coming to Denison to purchase house hold goods with which to furnish their new home and when near the Sam Pox farm, in going down a steep hill, the neckyoke broke, and in turning the horses, which were young ones, the wagon was overturned and both occu pants thrown to the ground. A son of Mr. Fox saw the horses and wagcn so over and called help over the phone. The unfortunate ones were carried to Mr. Fox's home and a physician phoned for. Both the vic tims were unconscious, but Mrs. Stender soon rallied, but could tell nothing about the accident. Mr. Stender in his unconscious con dition, became very violent and it was necessary that an operation be per formed. This was done and although the patient became less violent, he is at this writing in an unconscious state and liis -condition is very critical. A trained nurse is in attendance and of course everything is being done for him that is possible. J. Houlihan, of Arion, has rented the Bauman residence in north Denison and will move his family here in a week or two. Denison people will be glad to learn that Mr. Houlihan has decided to make his home here. Dresses, Coats, Suits and Skirts in Pretty Styles for Early Spring Wear per yard 69c J!

HAVE BEAUTIFUL DECORATIONS Lawyer Sims Gets Stage Fright and Mr. P. D. McMahon Inter prets "Puck." The last of the club banquets for the season was by no means the least. The Current Events club is one of the larg est in the city and with the invited guests the company numbered sixty eight, who gathered at the Carnegie club room last evening. The banquet tables and the room were beautifully decorated in green and white, the club colors. White roses and green candles added greatly to the appearance of the tables. The pillars and steam pipes were wound with white and green crepe paper, with many little white baskets hung about and filled with ferns and smilax. It leaked out that one of the many capable hus bands had had a part in planning the decorations, and the committees cer tainly carried out the color scheme to perfection. Mrs. Boylan, as chairman of the menu committee, received many com pliments on the elaborate dinner served. In this also the green and white color scheme was observed. The banquet was served by the daughters of the club members, who also sang the opening number on the program. The Misses Pearl Richardson and Marjorie Sims gave piano numbers be tween the courses. Mrs. Jensen, who was to have acted as toastmistress, was detained at home on account of illness in the fam ily, but as Mrs. Penney expressed it in taking her place, "Mrs. Jensen's thoughts could not be confined within four walls, and so slipped out over the telephone wires and were pres ent."

BONELESS CAT AND PICKEREL 10 1-2 CENTS PER POUND rs '*. v:.' ..v The first toast, which was an ad dress of welcome, entitled "The Penny Post," was responded to by the pres ident. The welcome came right from the heart and touched the hearts of all present. Mrs. Barber answered to the "Review of Reviews" in a decided ly clever manner, closing with a few mental cartoons, showing the work accomplished and proposed by the club. Mr. Sims endeavored to do justice to the "Smart Set," which he inter preted to mean the ladies. Mr. Sims was not at his best, being attacked with visible symptoms of stage fright so that "just like a little chick he trembled." However, he paid very tender homage to the fair sex and told some good stories. Miss Senseney in response to the toast, "The Etude," gave a very bright piano number. Dr. McCon naughey was called on to respond to "The American Boy," he, the toast mistress said, being doubly capable on this subject. His remarks were full of bright sayings and he conclud ed with an appeal for the Denison American boy who he inferred is be ing sadly neglected. "The Woman's Home Companion," alias "husbands," was responded to by Mrs. Ainsworth, who was well prepared with funny things to say on all kinds and descrip tions of husbands. Mr. McMahon gave the strictly humorous toast, as might be expected when it is known that his subject was "Puck." He told a series of jokes on the ever popular "Pat," and conclud ed with a few bright compliments to the Current Events club, making a play on the names of its members. He assured the ladies he was not endeav oring to curry favor by saying that the club was so independent in having its own Cook to things Boylan and its own Baker he could not see why their banquet hall should not be well furnished and equipped when they had beautiful Wood and a splendid Carpen ter he understood why the ladies all looked so complete as to head dress for why? the club has its own Barber, Continued on Page 12 Percales and Nurse Striped Ging hams—These house dresses are made over perfectly shaped forms and the styles are practical, yet the cost is no more than an or dinary calico wrapper.
