Dr. F. J. Woodbury, city health officer, states that the epidemic now appears to be under control, and with the new regulation, compelling everyone to mask, he does not look for many new cases. There are now 35 cases here.
The city issued an order last Saturday compelling everyone to wear a mask in public. This order has been rigidly enforced. We congratulate the people on the readiness with which they complied with this order, for the News has not seen or heard of a single infraction of it.
The quarantine against outside points was lifted Saturday, as we had then sixteen well defined cases here.
