Scarlet fever is raging in the little village of Mace and there are now 20 cases there. Dr. Trembly had reported 12 the first of the week to health officer, Dr. Keegan. There are many cases now where there are but little hope for recovery, but the first fatal case occurred last evening, when the child of Mrs. Moran died. The child of Mrs. Peter Moran died last evening of scarlet fever and was buried this morning at ten o’clock in the Odd Fellows Cemetery.
