WEGMAN Candidate for Re-election STATE TREASURER On the Democratic Ticket ID pMfi"g your Treasurer of the State of Iowa, choose a man who has proven by past experience that he b qualified and able to conduct the duties of that office in a more economical and serviceable manner. Because a number of Infantile paralysis cases have been In Koe- auth county, we have gathered the following Information from our Algona doctors as to the disease. Dr. C. It Ctettoieyer— •The causes of the disease are unknown. It hits the victim suddenly, on* of the arms or legs are suddenly paralysed, maybe both arms, both legs, etc. There is no use of quarantine. The only time I have ever seen two members In one family with the disease is In a family at Burt at the present time (last week). Twenty-five years ago there was an epidemic at Whittemore in which there were fourteen cases of Infantile paralysis. Bach of the children stricken with the disease had eaten some peaches shipped In from the west. Not that everyone that had eaten these peaches had the dis- ense, but everyone with the disease hnd eaten the peaches. There are no two cases alike, each one is different. Infantile paralysis Is most common to children; it Is closely related to the sleeping sickness of this country. The real sleeping sickness comes from the tse-tse fly in Africa. It is a spinal Infection." Dr. M. O. Bourne: "No one knows the causes of infantile paralysis. It comes from an unseen germ. There are two cases reported in Algona. and seven cases In Burt It comes usually in the latter summer and early fall. It is contagious, although rather mildly so. There are seldom two members in the family having it at the same time. Symptoms—cold In the head, vomiting and in a variable number of days the paralysis appears." Dr. P. V. Janse: "Infantile paralysis is an infectious disease, the infection starting In the gfey matter of the spinal cord. The cause* are not known. We doubt very much If it 1* at all contagious and the» patient euffer- Ing from the disease seldom If ever transmit* the *ame to another person. Thl* la proven by the fact that rarely If ever do you see more than one case In the same family. It Is possibly transmitted by carriers, by that we mean people who have the malady In the chronic form, and the excreta from their person Is deposited on fruit and this way others become Infected. We always find more cases In the fall of the year, when a great deal of fruit Is shipped in and this goes to prove this theory. The Initial symptoms vary greatly. It may be preceded by gastro-interlc symptoms, sore throat or the paralysis may come on without any preliminary symptoms at all. Parts usually affected by paralysis are one or more of the extremities. All of the muscles, however, are not paralyzed, only certain groups, which generally clear up to a certain extent, never fully. Up to the present time there has been no treatment to have any value except rest, massage and a carefully regulated exercise. The disease is most common in children between the ages of five and ten, although all people are liable to it One other doctor who asked to be left unnamed, said: "The disease is caused by a germ entering the nose, germ unseen. Usually comes In the fall of the year, and starts with an Intestinal cold. Hits fast, usually in three or four days, but with no fixed rules. Hits the central nervous system. Infantile paralysis is contagious. The germ enters the nervous system, and shuts off the nerve control. If "the congested area can be healed, the impulses will again have control." Amos Finnestad and Mrs. C. F. Wegener. Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Fauerby drove to Grinnell last week Wednesday to attend the funeral of an aunt of Mr. Fauerby. Mrs. C. H.
