Titus. On Tuesday last a boy named Peter Smith, aged 1.6 years, son of Mr aud Mrs A. Smith, of Hornsby Street, was admitfed to the local hospital suffering from the com plaint, where he was placed in the isolation ward under the care of a special nurse. The local heal h officer (Dr Gray) took all necessary precautions in regard to the few contacts to prevent the spread of the disease, and no further danger m this direction is anticipated. The case was regarded as a very serious one from the start, and on inquiry to-day we learned from the medical officer that, although the condition of the patient is still very grave, he passed a good night and was not so delirous as formerly, and we trust it" Is a good sign, and that he is on the way to recovery.
