SPANISH  FLU  AGAIN
EPIDEMIC  IN  COUNTY
----------
Gwynneville,  Bengal  and  Fenns
Hardest  Hit  By  Present
Epidemic  of  Flu
----------
          Spanish influenza is again epidemic in this county, according to reports received by  Dr. J. Willard Parrish,  secretary of the county board of health.  Twenty cases of the disease are reported at Fenns and vicinity.
          Other communities hit by the present epidemic are Bengal, Gwynneville and Lewis Creek.  Shelbyville has a large number of cases, but it is not considered serious here.
          The county district affected by the flu have escaped other epidemics, it is said, and the disease is just appearing in those communities.  Dr. Parrish says the cases which have been reported to him are not so severe as those last fall.  He describes them as typical cases, but in a mild form.
          The cases of flu in this city developed during the first of the week and no new ones are being reported now.

Who is Put Out of a Saloon for Boisterous
Conduct, and in the Scuffle, Receives
a Severe Cut on the Left Arm
Which Will Cripple Him
for Life.
----------
          About half past four o'clock Saturady afternoon, persons on the Square were excited by seeing two men in a buggy going through on Harrison street nearly as fast as the horse could run.  One of the men was driving with one hand and with the other was holding up the head of his companion, who was piled up in a heap in the bottom of the buggy and covered with blood.  Coming on through the Square the horse was turned down Franklinstreet past the Democrat office, while the reporter of that paper shot down the back stairs in hot pursuit.  One getting down he found that the buggy had been stopped in front of Dr. Maddox's office, and in a moment the injured man had been lifted out, carried in and laid down on the floor, while in another minute a crowd of over a hundred persons were blockading the door and window gazing in.  Among the first to arrive were Sheriff Brown,  Marshal Barger  and  Constable Thrall,  who kept back the curious crowd while the search for the cause of the blood was going on.  It was soon found to proceed from a frightful wound in the left wrist, which had severed every muscle, and presented a sickening appearance.  The man was so completely under the influence of liquor that he never stirred while the wound was being sewn up, and while that was being done the reported made some inquiries of  Mr. James E. Debaun, who brought the man around.  In answer to the inquiries of the reporter Mr. Debaun stated the name of the wounded man as  Willie Wes. Parrish,  who lived one-half mile east of Smithland, with his brother-in-law,  J. H. Harrell.  Parrish is about twenty-eight years old, and had come to town Saturday morning, as as soon as he got here commenced to fill up with whiskey.  About four o'clock he went around to the Gen Saloon and in a short time made himself so obnoxious that he was ordered out.  He refused to go and continued his boisterous conduct, when the barender took hold of him and put him out.  In the scuffle Parrish run his arm through a glass in the door, receiving the wound above mentioned, which will make him a cripple for life.

          Next Saturday, there retires from a public position in Shelby county, a gentleman, who has served the people faithfully and well, and now that he is on the eve of retiring we cannot keep from publicly bidding him farewell.  We allude to the expiration of the term of office of  Mr. James O. Parrish,  who for four years past has had charge of the treasurer's office of Shelby county.  Mr. Parrish retires with the warmest wishes of his many friends following him.  He has the proud satisfaction of knowing that he turns over to his successor in office the books and effects of his trust in a shape that will not suffer the least by careful examination.  We wish him every success in whatever he undertakes in the future.
