It is particularly important at this time that all cases in which any person has been bit- ten by a dog-, be immediately reported _to the Local Health Officer. This is necessary so that the proper steps might be taken for the isolation and ob- servation of the dog in ques- tion. While our community -at present date is still free from a single case of rabies, cases have been reported in all the sur- rounding communities. In re- porting a, case of dog'bite, it is necessary that the owner's name be also added. if possible, so that direct action might be instituted as soon as possible. Nfrs.
