The Diphtheria Revisits Colfax

We regret to say that the diphtheria has again broken out in Colfax, and it seems to be more violent than ever. One death has resulted this week, that of Katie, youngest daughter of L. T. Allen. She died on Wednesday and was buried yesterday. The second child, Abbie, a girl of thirteen, is also dangerously ill of the same disease. Eight or ten other children are also sick. Among the number are: Zillie Hayford, Mrs. Keck's third girl, Pinkie, and two or three other children in the family of Mr. Richardson.
