The outbreak of typhus fever, the first case of which occurred at the village of Cloosh, four miles from Kinvara, about three weeks ago, has made its appearance in other portions of the district within the last week.

Dr. Thomas J. Connolly, B.A., M.B., Medical Officer of the Kinvara Dispensary District, has discovered seven cases of the dread disease during his rounds through the district and he had the patients immediately sent on to the well-equipped Fever Hospital in Gort, where they are progressing as favourably as can be expected. Dr. Connolly is out from early morning, till late at night visiting the houses of the people, and he is leaving no stone unturned to prevent the disease assuming more dangerous proportions.
