At the time of tlieir deaths, Dunning physicians were nn-otified us to the nature of their ailments. A suspicion that Pellagra was the affliction of the women was confirmed today by Dr. C. H. Lavinder, a surgeon of the United States Public Health and Marine Hos- pital Service, who tor the past two years has been making ah exhaustive- study of the baffling disease at Col- umbia, S. C. "Pellagra is a disease of the most notorious kind known to said 'Dr. Lavinder. "'Its cause is not entirely understood, and no certain cure has been found for i it. Most authorities attribute the dis- ease to the use of food of spoiled or damaged corn, or its products. But no one is able to state that corn in a certain condition will cause a disease nor can any one guard against it. Pel- lagra eats out the body and mind, but is a chronic disease and not acute and usually when insanity is caused the i patient is depressed and moody rather than violent. The disease is not con- sidered communicable and no efforts are made anywhere, either in Europe or in the United States to quarantine the cases."
