Scarlet Fever In
Texas Shows 911
Cases This Year
Scarlet fever is one of the most
disabling and dangerous diseases
usually associated with childhood,
although actually it is confined to
no age limit, according to Dr. Geo.
W. Cox. state health officer. While
only six cases were reported in the
state during the week ending Sep-
tember 24, it brought the year's
total to 911 cases.
The doctor described scarlet fe-
ver as an acute infectious disease,
the onset of which is sudden. The
first symptoms including sore
throat, vomiting, fever, and head-
ache, may appear in three to five

buried in the Georgetown ceme-

ing his death on Monday. He had
been ill for three years.
Funeral services were conducted
at the Georgetown cemetery by
the Rev. R. L. Gardenhire. Bratch-
er-Moore, funeral directors, were
in charge of arrangements.
Mr. Brison was born in Grayson
county on September 17, 1870,
and was married in 1920 to Miss
Bendie Williams. Mrs. Brison sur-
vives him. He is survived also by
a daugther, Mrs. Emil Christmas,
lowed by the distinctive red rash
whjch gives this disease its name,
Dr. Cox stated.
Complications may cause pro-
longed disability or death. Children
suffering with scarlet fever may
develop sinusitis and middle-ear
infections which can lead to mas-
toiditis. As the germs spread
through the child’s system, the
joints, kidneys, and heart may be-
come involved, causing life-long in-
validism or crippling.
“A child with any kind of a sore
throat should be seen by the family
physician promptly,” Dr. Cox as-
serted. “If scarlet fever is pres-
ent, the treatment recommended
will do much to alleviate discom-
fort and reduce the possibility of
Dr. Cox stated that children un-
der ten years of age are most sus-
ceptible, and those persons who fail
I to contract scarlet fever until
grown stand an excellent chance
of never having the disease.
