Within the corporate limI.-. its there is alsp much anxiety and uneasiness. That there have been many . exposures every one knows and no one knows how soon lie may become i" a victim of this loathsome disease. , There have been in the neighborhood of fifty cases and four or five deaths. And at this time twenty cases v are reported", but all are under quarantine and every effort possible is be. ing made to stamp out the disease. The great danger, however, is that - -It may spread to such an extent as Jo [ get entirely beyond the control of lot cal anthorities and the health boards. | All the churches were closed Sat> -TirvSav and Sunrlav.

This is the train about which there have been vague rumors that robbers were planning to wreck and loot. The wreck of this morning, however, seems to have been purely accidental.

Traffic was not seriously delayed by the accident. POTS NEWS STORE CHANGES HANDS? ARTHUR G. MARTIN BECOMES THE OWNER AND WILL CONSOLIDATE HIS TWO STORES.
