Three Deaths over Weekend- Brother follows Brother to the Grave in Lanley Family
Health Authorities Assert Worst is Over.
While the measles epidemic which has been sweeping Monroe County for several weeks is over the peak and fewer cases are now being reported each day, three children died from the epidemic over the weekend. In each of the three deaths the measles ran into pneumonia and the pneumonia was fatal. These three deaths bring the death list up to twelve and make this one of the worst epidemics which Monroe County has had in many years. The oldest local physician cannot recall when there was such a series of deaths from a supposedly mild sickness. The health authorities continue to assert that the epidemic will shortly run its course.

The Eleventh Victim
Clarence Lewis, 12 year old son of Mrs. Minnie Langley, south Fairview street, died yesterday in the Bloomington hospital after a four week illness from measles and pneumonia. Only three weeks ago a seven year old brother, Albert passed away of the same disease. The mother, two brothers, Clayborn of this city and Harmon, of LaPorte and an uncle Albert Cross, this city survive. The child's father Scott Langley, died about three years ago. Funeral tomorrow at 2 o'clock from the Day Funeral Home in charge of Rev. Joseph M. Campbell of the Southside church and burial at Richland Cemetery.
