PREVENTION BEST DECIDES COUNCIi ONLY ONE CASE OF DIPHTHERI A BUT STRICT QUARANTINE ENFORCED. Acting on the principle that an ounce of prevention Is worth a pound of cure the city council, Mon day night, acted as a public health board, as provided by the laws of 1905, appointed Dr. C. T. Hockett public health officer and instructed him to forbid all public gatherings of any kind until January 4. This was done wholly as a precautionary measure, as there Is but one case of diphtheria In town, and It is under close quarantine together with every one who is suspected of having been exposed. O. H. Brady, a young mechanic, is ill of diphtheria reports County Phy sician E. T. Anderson. His father, Thomas Brady, dlad of the disease at Promise two weeks ago, and O. H. went to see him, the nature of the disease being then unknown. Dr. Anderson stated to council that he disinfected Brady before leaving Promise and also after arriving at Enterprise, but ths young man took down with the disease Saturday. Strict quarantine was at once estab lished and it is hoped and believed there will be no spread of the con tagion. Just, at this time of year there are so many public gatherings where children attend It was deemed wise to run no risk, so all were prohibited. Children under sixteen are also forbid being oa the streets. The schools are closed until Janu ary 4. There would have been the usual holiday vacation in the high school anyway, but none was plan ned In the public schools. The Christmas entertainments are postponed, not abandoned, and Santa Claus will make the rounds of every home on Christmas day. The enter tainment by ' Eugene Knox and the New Years Eve ball cannot be held. The council acted as above stated in response to a petition signed by 64 citizens including nearly every business man in town, who took the oroad view of public welfare before private Interests, So far there seems to have been no effect on business for the stores are thronged all day with Christmas shopper?.

Brady, is reported by Dr. Anderson as ill of the disease. The anti-diphtheria serum was admin istered Saturday morning. Mr. Brady has about recovered. There are -jno cases but these two, both in one house and closely quarantined. There is plenty serum on hand, and no serious results are expected for it has been proven a practically sure cure for the disease when adminis tered In time.
