Sleeping Sickness Adds Another Victim; St. Louis Doctors Puzzled ST. LOUIS iUJR: — Spurred by the -belief that the sleeping sickness epidemic which has sent 140. persons to hospitals here is-spreading, Dr. William G. Patton, superintendent of the St. Louis County hospital Tuesday continued his vig. orous search for tho carrier of the mysterious malady. Numerous additional cases were reported and the death of a 20-year- old girl was bejjeved due to sleep- ir.g sickness, bringing the death toll to 13. Dr. Patton, who, with his staff physicians, was first to realize the nature of the epidemic. Instructed laboratory workers to concentrate on the theory that mosquitoes are the carriers of the disease. . The St. Louis County hospital superintendent said he had nothing to substantiate the theory except that the epidemic became widespread simultaneously with the greatest Influx of the Insects In recent years. Many of the victims, Dr. Patton said, were either residents of lowland mosquito-Infested sections or worked In sections badly infested with the insects. The malady, puzzling to physicians, affects the brain in much the same manner as meningitis or infantile paralysis, Dr. Patton said. Altho it resembles infantile paralysis, there Is no trace of paralysis the hospital head said. While the officials held lengthy consultations and sought means to prevent further spread "of the disease, 69 persons slept in a stupor in an isolation ward of the county hospital. A total of 137 persons have bee i treated for the mysterious disease since July 30. Of these. 13 have died, 69 are'in the hospital and 55 have .been sent to their home but still are under observation. | Mr*. WO!
