Cholera in Columbus.
Mrs. Domigan, an Irish lady, living in the
immediate neighborhood of the Jewett property, on
South Rich Street, where the other deaths by Cholera
occurred, was taken with the premonitory symptoms on
Monday night, died last night. The immediate
neighbors of the deceased knew nothing of the attack
until late yesterday afternoon, nor was medical
assistance called in until the patient was too far gone
to be resuscitated. This makes the ninth death by
cholera since Thursday, when the disease made its
appearance in this city, and all of which happened in
the immediate neighborhood of the dwelling where the
cholera made its first appearance.
The city continues to be filled with all sorts of
rumors, in relation to cholera cases. Every person
attacked with a diarrhoea or with vomiting is reported
as suffering with the cholera, and from this fact, it is
exceedingly difficult in making up a report to
distinguish between the real and supposed cases.
One of our physicians, familiar with the disease in
1832, and who is now in practice in this city, informed
us that he has frequently, within the last few days,
been called upon to prescribe for cases of diarrhoea,
with the rice-water discharges, attended by vomiting,
and although several of these cases, if not checked in
the very first of the disease, would have run late
cholera, yet he has not yet met with a case which he
would be willing to call the Asiatic Cholera, in this
Many cases similar to those spoken of, are no doubt
trumpeted forth as cholera, because the watery diarrhoea
and vomiting are considered, and generally with truth,
as the premonitory symptoms of cholera. Persons so
attacked should at once consult the family Physician,
there being little or no doubt that the disease, in that
stage, readily yields to prompt medical treatment.
Dr. Gard reports a case of cholera in Franklinton
(Mrs. Wheeler,) on yesterday. She was
successfully treated by him and is convalescent.

Eighteen More Succumb to Pneumonia; Spanish 'Flu'
CAMP SHERMAN, CHILLICOTHE, Oct. 2 - Spanish influenza
has broken out at Chillicothe.
The announcement tonight that 251 cases of the disease

medical officers at Camp Sherman had reported that, in
their opinion, the crest of the epidemic at the camp had
Last night and today saw the number of new cases
admitted to the camp hospital materially lower and
tonight but a small percentage of the canton- ent's
population was in need of medical attention.
The estimated number of cases at Camp Sherman today was
4,000, being 682? more than at noon yesterday.
Medical authorities __d their opinion that the epidemic

in much more slowly today than heretofore.

epidemic at Camp Sherman were brought to a total of

LINN of Springfield, were the result of pneumonia.

precautionary measure, however, is being taken and all
