ceived yesterday afternoon saying: "Wo

The following-communication from the
board of health of Roanoke city is very
much to the point :
"Roanoke, Va., Nov. 10th, 1S07.
"The Board of Health reports no re?
cent developed cases of scarlet fever and
diphtheria and as far as can be ascer?
tained very few case9, as'a whole, have
been in the city during this season.
"We therefore see no causo for the
great alarm manifested anrl a just reason
for parents keeping their childreu from
the public schools, as has been reported
to bo the case by the superintendent of
public schools.
"It is much to be regretted that many
fnlso and injurious rumors hava been
ignorantly circulated, but which would
never have been the case had all such
diseases been promptly reported by the
attending physicians aud the police jus?
tice not have failed to execute the law
as entrusted to his keeping and adminis?
tered it with a fearless, impartial aud
honest hand.
"Trusting that with the co operation
of the city council and mayor that those
evils, as far as tho law Is involved, will
iu time be remedied,"we. iu the mean?
time, assure the public that tho alarm
now manifested is without foundation,
as there are only three cases of diph?
theria and two cases of scarlet fever of
recent date. Respectfully,
