WARNING TO
ROUNDUP CITIZENS
Tvphniil Fever Prevalent in Hound«
up««llulea to he Followed to Pre
vent Wholesale Kpideinir
Typhoid fever has gained a foot
hold in Roundup and is already as
suming alarming propensities, in
fact so many eases have been re
ported that vigorous steps will have
to be pursued to prevent a whole
sale epidemic of that dread dis
ease. It is believed that the cause
of the present epidemic lies in the
factj thatTa huge number of the
crews of railroad laborers along the
Musselshell river have been using the
water of that stream, which has
been unusually low the past season,
for drinking purposes and in the
preparation of their food. Tin* dis
ease once rooted among these la
borers, who are mostly foreigners
and unsanitary in their living, lias
had a chance to have full sway,
and finally resulted in the spread of
the disease.
In order to prevent the spread of
the epidemic as much as possible
and which will effectively aid in
suppressing it, the following pre
cautionary measures should he in
stituted and vigorously prosecuted
by all citizens of Roundup.
1. All water, regardless of its
source or apparent purity, should
he boiled before being used for
drinking purposes or for use about
cooking or eating utensils.
2. All food should be effectually
screened against flies. An epide
mic of typhoid is frequently «lue to
the contamination of flies, infec
tion being carried from typhoid pa
tients, their excreta and from privy
vaults contaminated by convales
cent patients or by mild cases who
manage to wander about town,
thus leaving new nests of infection
in their wake.
3. Dishes should he kept screen
ed against flies as closely as the
food.
4. The use of lime in privy
vaults and on seats that have been
soiled is urged. Chlorinated lime
is the best for the purpose. Allow
ing lime to slack in contact with
the contents of vaults and seats
answers the purpose well when the
other is not available. The open
ing in the seats in all privies should
be provided with covers to
prevent a free interchange of flies
when not in use.

The co-operation of all citizens
is essential to success and the at
tention of merchants dealing in
food supplies of all kinds, ami hotel
and restaurant keepers is especially
called to these measures, as a large
part of the population of Roundup
is dependent upon the latter for the
necessaries of life.
The indiscriminate scattering of
refuse or human excretions are
practices that cannot be too vigor
ously condemned.
WILL ORGANIZE
Aerie of Eagles to be Organized in
Roundup—Nearly 100 Signify
Intention to Join.
Arrangements are about comple
ted for the organization of a local
aerie of Eagles, about a hundred
having signified their intention to
join the order. Finlay McRae of
Helena, Grand Treasurer of the
Eagles, is expected here in the near
future,. probably some time next
week, to organize the local aerie,
and indications point that t hey will
start out with a large membership
here.
Tiic Fraternal Order of Eagles is
a relatively new order having been
started about five years ago, and
has grown from a "jest" to one
of the foremost orders in the
world in that short space of time.
It now boasts of fifteen hundred
aeries and a membership of more
than 260,000.
The Fraternal Order of Eagles
teaches a philosophy which is di
vine truth, and wherever its doc
trine has promulgated, it has found
a responsive echo in the hearts of
men. Its creed is simple ami in it
there arc no patricians nor ple
beians. Each Eagle, wherever lo
cated. is the equal of every other.
There is embraced within the circle
of its fraternity, humanity in all its
phases, and no man in whose soul
there is yet remaining one spark of
manhood is denied its benign in
fluence. It recognizes that in every
man there is some good, and it
seeks to develop that good until it
shall bear good fruit in the better
ment and uplifting of mankind in
general.

homesteaders north of Roundup,

Mr. Dado, who is a North Dakotan,
