Meningitis in Caddo
Last Friday morning Dr. Gunby was up from Sherman and pronounced the illness of the little child of Mr. and Mrs. Bennett to be meningitis; immediately there was quite a furor in town, everyone nearly, became scared. Due sanitary precautions, however, were taken and no danger is apprehended of the spread of the disease. The child is getting along nicely, and will recover, it is thought.
No other cases have developed in Caddo. Every known means of disinfecting have been used.
School was dismissed Friday afternoon, but resumed again Monday morning. The meeting at the church was not discontinued, but is running with increasing interest. The opera house also is filling every date. So, from these evidences one must judge that little danger is apprehended.
