Raleigh. Aug. 20.—With the num
ber of reported pellagra cases increas
ing daily and with the recent survey
indicating between 25,000 and 40,000
cases of pellagra in North Carolina at
the present time, the State Board of
Health is becoming more and more
concerned about the situation, accord
ing to Dr. J. M. Parrott. State health
officer. Since pellagra cannot he cur
ed by drugs and is caused almost en
tirely by a defective diet. lackinK in
vegetables, milk and fresh meets, it
can be controlled and cured only by a
diversified diet that contains these
foods, Dr. Parrott points out.
The first part of this year, the
board of health was hoping that the
State would continue oi show a de-,
crease In pellagra, as it did last year.
But In June 318 new cases were re
posted and in July 188, while so far in
August 171 new cases have been re
ported, compared with a total of only
146 new cases for the • entire month
August, 1881. This Is the largest num
ber of cases to be reported In any
August since 1880, the peak pellagra

ROBBERY THEORY IN

Negro Shot Dead Identified
As Probable Slay er In
Mississippi
Natchez, Miss., Aug. 20— (AP)
The slaying of Jane Surget Merrill,
belle of the Old South, who turned
recluse was evidently attributed to
day to an attempt at robbery by a
Negro now dead, but Sheriff C. T.
Roberts said he was convinced that
others were implicated.
Maurice B. O’Neil, head of the ber
tlllon department of the New Or
leans police, informed the sheriff last
night his test disclosed tha bullets
that killed Miss Merrill were fired
by a postoi recovered from the Negro,
George Pearl, alias Lawrence Wil
liams.
Pearl was shot and killed three days
after the murder as he resisted ques
tioning by an officer at Pine Bluff.
His body was sent to a morgue at
Chicago and O'Neil and Roberts went
to Chicago- and identified him.

Raleigh, Aug. 20.—Ignorance of the

the State on the part of thousands
of drivers causes just as many ac

recklessness, according to Captain
Charles D. Farmer of the State High
way Patrol,' who believes that the
only way to combat this ignorance of
the law is to require a state drivers’
license. }f North Carolina required
a State drivers’ licence, as most other
