Information Concerning The
Health of the People of Frank
lin County, Worth 1'our Atten.
By I)H. J. E .MALONE,
The Quarantine Law was not made
to especially protect tne sick person
and that household as it is to protect
the neighborhood. Some people have a
false idea along this line, they feel or
seem to feel that it is a punishment
aimed at them, when it is intended for
the greatest good to the greatest num
bers of people. If ihe first suspicion
of whoopfng cough in a; ramlly was im
ported at once and quarantined it
would end right there, see how mtich
trouble, expense, suffering and death
might be donte-away wtth. The life
of a quarantine officer is not always
a smooth and pleasant one*. I have
had a woman to hold a hatchet in my
face and tell me if I drove another
tack in that quarantine paper on her
house she would split my face open.
A man came out of his nouse with a
double barrel gun and told me if I
didn't get out of his yard, he would
blow my head off. A boss at a saw mill
with forty rough hands (men) told
me that these hands wouldn't allow
me to quarantine three men all brokt
en out with small pox. with a little pa
tience and explanation. I went ahead
and discharged my duty, we are all
good friends again. Arectent ruling
of the State Board of Health makes
it necessary for a person or household
to at once report a contagion at or on
the first suspicion, to their family phy
sician and he tbte physician, must at
once fill out the report card and give
or mail it to the Quarantine Officer.
This officer records this in his quaran
tine book and sends the card on to
Now good people and good doctors,
let us all be on guard, vratch. act
promptly and prevent tne spread of
disease. Your family pnyslcian has
on hand a supply of report cards, hei
will place a quarantine paper on your'
house, give you all the instructions
how to act in the premises and send
the card to me. Some times out of the
kindness of our hearts we hesitate aud
postpone, this won't do, tet us all do
our duty by accepting the health laws
of our State and all will t>e well.
