It wds alleged that the disease was carried by vAllen Stevens from Richmond, who visited his brother F. J. Stevens last weeki Two of Mr. Stevens: daughters are also stricken with the dread disease. Mr. Stevens lives in the suburbs of Irvine and it is hoped that the trouble can be confined to his own family, but as it originated in a railroad camp where many others have had the opportunity of con- i tracting the disease, it is feared ! that there may be a general spread of the same.

The celebrated case of the Muhlenburg Coal Miners, who are suing the Illinois Central Railroad in the Quarterly Court of that connty, has been ad judged by the Kentucky Court of Appeals to be without merit. These miners were thrown out of employment by reason of the fact that the Illinois Central Railroad Company failed to sup--ply a sufficient number of cars to carry on me proauci oi me mines, which thereby threw the miners out of employment. Forty-one miners brought, individual ly, suits for i-25 :mage against the railroad company. The rail road company brought an injunc tion suit to restrain the trial of these small cases, alleging that it was done for the purpose 'of depriving the railroad company it i r ii . 1 of a hearing in the Circuit Court and the Court of Appeals, and asking an injunction against the Quarterly Court, and preventing it further trying the case. The Circuit Court sustained the de murrer to the petition and the railroad company appealed to the Kentucky Court of Appeals, which latter tribunal decides that the cases afe without merit, and is sues a mandatory injunction staying the further trial ,01 the cases. - It is alleged in - the.,, petition that 1600 other miners intended to file similar suits. The Court of Appeals did not discuss the conspiracy part, but decided that the suits were without merit, and ordered their discontinu ance. 1 The Layman's Missionary Conference This conference unier the di rection of the Layman's Mission ary Movement of the United States will be held in the Lecture Room of the Christian Church the 13th and 14th of Mi month.
