T. McCormack, State Health o nicer. The bulletin was issued at this time, according to Dr. McCormack, because the first epidemic of the year already has commenced its ravage in Mene fee county. "There are certain facts," Dr. McCormack said, "which parents Fhould recall now that diphtheria has appeared for the first time this season in epidemic form in Kentucky. One half of the deaths from the disease, to which chil dren particularly are subject, o cur every yoar within three months after schools reopen. "These deaths are absolutely needless. If, after the disease has been acquired, enough anti toxin is administered to the child suffering within the first three days of the disease's course, the sufferer's life will be saved every time. The thin? for parents to do is to send each child which has a sore throat to a doctor im mediately and, where he has had the disease, not to permit him to return to school until he is shown by a laboratory analysis to be completely cured. "Last yep.r for the first time since vital statistics in Kentucky have been kept the death rate from diphtheria increased. This did not alarm us especially as the increase in this State conformed to an increase all over the United States, but the State Hoard of Health is anxious to keep the dit ease well in baud this year." Dr. O. II. Voorhiesfof Lexing ton, has been sent by the State board of Menefec county to fight diphtheria there. Three deaths already have been reported and there are approximately thirty cases of the disease in the county. 8P0UT EPRINO Mr. and Mrs. Oreen Walters, of Iron Mound, visited Mr. and Mrs. A. C.
