the old woodhouse was looked into an oldfashioned coffee boiler was found hang ing on the wall When this was taken down a large sum ofmoney met the searchers gaze We were unable to learn the exact amount found but was told that it was considera ble and that it was in pieces ranging from one cent to five dollars showing that she had put the money away just as she had collected it during the many years of her hardwork We earnestly hope that the shooting of newspaper editors is not a contagious disease and if such it be we appeal to our board of health to see that every man in this county is

Creek Mr Wm Roach had two fine cattle to die within a few hours of each other of the disease It is said that death comes as if by magic The animal shows no symptoms of the disease until with in afew minutes of its death Should this disease spread in the county now when there are several thousand head of cattle being fed at our distil leries it would mean a loss of many thousand dollars to the

VANARSDELL Manager WHO IS TO BLAME Appreciating the fact that contagious diseases are in our midst and the importance that same should be reported to the County Board of Health a member of said board discuss ed The Differential Diagno sis of the Infectious and Con tagious Diseases at the last scarIlettheria are the most dangerous of the infectious diseases which made it important that an early diagnosis be made to save life and protect the pub there are several comparatively harmless dis eases that closely counterfeit them which fact also ren ders it important that an ac curate diagnosis be made in order not to alarm the family and to avoid the expense and inconvenience of enforcing quarantine closing schools and churches and preventing public meetings- In the last issue of IT the query is made Who Is to Blame for the local violation of the State law which pro vides that every practicing physician who attends a pa tient having a contagious dis ease must report the case to the Board of Health of the town or county and anyone failing to make such report shall be fined for each of fense fifty dollars The above query is supple mented by the report of the statement of one of the leading doctors of the town that Anderson county is to day full of scarlet fever and diphtheria yet not a case has been reported and few if any of the houses quaran tined It seems that the above statement was made to convey the impression that the Board of Health is to blame andI therefore its up to the Board to place responsibility The blame may be charged up to three countsignorance negligence of the attend ing physician or his desire to protect some prominent pa tient from the horror of the pesthouse The first count is the most censurable however it is the privilege and duty of the attending physician when unable to diagnose to call on the Board of Health and he is clearly to blame if he allows the public to visit the patient or the patient to mingle with the public or suffers the tient to die before a diagnosis is made arid proper treatment instituted And but little less to blame is the physician who labels some innocent dis ease as a contagious malady frightening the family and causing the public to incur the expense of quarantine closing schools etc besides paralyz Anderson County Medical Society was reorgan ized last year this matterwas fully discussed and upon re quest Dr McCormack Secretary of the State Board of Health defined the relative duties of the attending physi cians in contagious diseases and the County Board of Health He declared that it was the duty of the attending physician to report the case to the County Board whose duty it is to establish and enforce quarantine and the Boards function ceases here unless the attending physician is un able to make a diagnosis or refuses to report the case Out of deference to the profession it has been the custom of the County Board of Health to lean to leniency rather than stringency in the performance of its duties but in the light of the above report and in the interest of the public health and business notice is hereby given to physicians attending contagious diseases to report the same subject to the penal ties of the State law for fail ure to report In conclusion the statement is made that there has never been a case of contagious dis ease reported by any attend ing physician or by the laity but that prompt attention was rendered by the Board BOARD HEALTH The Democrat is pleased to note that W P Marsh is associate editor of a very lively paper called ITat Law renceburg Ky

sometimes erroneously term ed the Thirteen Club is one of the delightful organizations among Lawrenceburgs four hundred While it does sist of thirteen members it was not premeditated on the part of the organizers to defy the old superstition nor did they wish to test the correct ness of it but it will stagger the faith of the firmest believer in the doctrine of the un lucky thirteen to know that the Magazine Club has been in existence eleven years and the members are all living hale and hearty dwelling to gether in unity and have long since settled for all time the mooted question that marriage is not a failure The members of the organization ire not ex tremists for they do not meet on the 13th of the month nor do they partake of thirteen courses as some wag has in timated but they do take thirteen periodicals and some times sit thirteen at the table Once a month a delightful en tertainment is proffered bamember and many outsiders are invited to partake of the hospitality ofa club hostess These functions are purely cial to engender friendship and promote hospitality and are not characterized by any special literary feature al though the latest stories and current events appearing in discussedperiodicals in existence are taken and these are exchang ed twice each week going tematically from one member to another The club does not enlarge its membership because it would take the books too long to make the rounds Only one meeting a year is called and that is in Decem ber to discuss the merits of the magazines vote upon their adoption into the club and renew subscriptions The club has only one officer a li brarian whose duty it is to or der the literature keep track of its circulation and collect for incidental expenses This honorable and lucrative po

WILL TAKE ACTION County Judge John S Odell was a caller at our oflicc last Thursday to refute thc chargcs or rather the complaints made to us which were printed in IT as to the condition of the coun ty roads and courthouse The Judge says that owing to the heavy rains the roads of the county have been badly wash ed and that on account of the had weather the rock crusher has not been in opera tion which greatly accounts for the bad condition of the roads at the present tine He insists that he is doing his most to put the roads in the best of repair and that as soon as the weather will permit he will see that they receive the proper attention- In regard to the courthouse he said that the Fiscal court had ordered him to have an architect come here and see what is to be done and make a report and that he was in re ceipt of a letter from one who stated that he would be here Monday to look at the build ing As soon as he conies and makes his report Judge Odell will no doubt act according to the best wishes of every cit izen of the county by calling a meeting of the court and pushing the work in such a manner as to have the improvements all made at an early date and a courthouse that will be a credit and not a disgrace to our county Lost last Thursday evening on Main or Woodford street 500 Finder will please re turn to this office and receive reward n Presence of Mind Saves Life and

over Mrs Dedmans clothing and the carpet was quickly ig nited and a large flame shot up With rare presence of mind Mrs Dedman hastily grabbed some bedding and smothered the blaze which had made such quick headway and would have soon cost her and her sleeping children their lives Under such circum stances we dare say that there arc not half a dozen women in Anderson county who would display such
