No. 5 town of Bryan nest of smallpox Holiday season is now Over and the facts come out. It is stated upon most excellent authority that three More Bryan families have been taken Down with the smallpox and that there have Twenty cases in the town in All. The knowledge that there was smallpox in the town was buried As Long As possible to save the Holiday Trade. Now that the Holiday season is a Over the Bryan people will close their opera House Aud make some show towards stamping out the disease. A member of the state Board of health was called to Bryan sometime ago and pronounced the cases there in hand smallpox. He must have known that the authorities were not taken even Ordinary care to Stop the spread of the disease. Instead of marking the houses where they had smallpox with proper cards setting Forth the facts boards were stuck up which bore the announcement written in Chalk that there were contagious diseases in that neck of the Woods a so to speak. Such acts Are almost criminal in their nature and it is astounding that the state Board of health should close its eyes to this open disregard of the Law. The head of that wonderful Board is Active and Alert when a democratic Board of health needs Aid Comfort and Consolation. Why not Jack up things in Bryan and Force Protection for the general Public. It occurs to us that the situation would justify the officials in this City in quarantining against Bryan until such time at least As the local authorities or state Board of health concludes to do something to rid the town of Bryan of smallpox.
