Spanish Influenza, Dec. 28, 1918

July 9, 2020

The report today, Dec. 28, is that there is still a great deal of influenza in Sheridan, attested by the considerable overturn in school attendance attributable to the malady. The schools have been favored, however, in that since they reopened, there has been little sickness among the teaching force. More than 20 of the teachers had the influenza during the period when the schools were closed, and others were engaged in Red Cross nursing.

Mrs. C. C. Riley is reported to be improving rapidly from a serious attack of the prevailing epidemic of flu.
