Paul Beam

No Change in the Sickness at Hageman, Three More Deaths.

The state of affairs at Hageman remain practically unchanged. Several new cases are reported. Among these are Mr. Cheatam who was taken suddenly ill this week, and lies in a precarious condition. The deaths since last Thursday are, Carl Trowe, aged 65 years; the three year old child of Seneca Bigelow, and the two year old child of Peter Westrand. Mr. Trowe's wife died of the same disease a few weeks ago, and Bigelow has now lost his second child. Another child of Mr. Westrand's is very sick, but may recover. The attending physicians think little Paul Beam will die. There are two or three others who are lying in a dangerous condition. The recent cold weather has probably been beneficial to the health of this community, but still the week has been bad enough. Some are very much afraid of a sudden hot spell, predicting that many deaths will follow. The sanitary condition of the town is wonderfully improved, and the good work of cleaning up still going on. But now that the disease has obtained a foothold it will be very difficult to shake it off until cold weather. September is the worst month and it is possible that twenty more lives will be lost before October. All are doing their best to check the disease, and can only wait and see the end.


Just as we go to press the news was brought that Paul Beam was dead. He died this afternoon. The time for the funeral has not yet been set.
