FURTHER OUTBREAKS OF TYPHOID. Typhoid cases continue to occur at Maidstone, and the notifications are gradually creeping up to 1,800. The total stood on Thursday morning at 1,757, showing an increase during the preceding 24 hours of nine. The Medical Officer states that the daily increase now taking place is entirely due to secondary causes, such as want of knowledge and care in nursing of patients. There have been 115 deaths. The two nurses who became indisposed have now been notified as suffering from the disease. Typhoid has also broken out at Lynn. The total number of cases is 235, and the number of deaths four. The late medical officer of Lynn writes to the Standard on the outbreak. He says that in 1881 and often since he drew the attention of the Corporation to tha danger of ttie water supply and predicted an epidemic of typhoid. The Corpora- tion did what they could in a mild way, he says, but a comprehensive scheme was unpopular on account of the expense. Had they tried to force it on the town probably half of them would have been unseated and the work left undone. The Maid- stone people complain because their water is sup- plied by a private company. The trouble at Lynn is caused because they are supplied with water by a Corporation whoso hands are virtually tied. Typhoid exists in Belfast but of a mild type and no deaths have been reported. « â "c
