      Preston News:

      Two more cases of smallpox have been discovered in Preston. Mr. Bock, of Wilmot Township, uncle of Miss Rosenberger, who had been visiting at the home of John Rosenberger prior to the discovery of the Kate Rosenberger case, has developed the disease. He had left and gone to the home of Jacob Rosenberger, Queen Street, a brother of Miss Katie Rosenberger.

      They were quarantined and the case appeared on Saturday. Mr. Bock was taken to John Rosenberger's house, where the first case is. This morning we were informed that Miss Rosenberger's father, John Rosenberger, had become a victim of the disease.

      In connection with these cases of the disease, a strange thing occurred on Saturday afternoon, when Mr. John Rosenberger's son, Joseph, who resides near the hop yards, and who has been quarantined for some time, developed a sort of dementic, and got away from the house. Not returning in the evening, his wife became concerned and revealed her fears to some friends. The fire alarm was rung and a search was instituted, which lasted til midnight. Just as the friends were about despairing of finding the missing man, he was discovered sitting down at the edge of the river, apparently unconscious of the bitter cold. When found, his hands and feet were frozen. He is, however, quite well today.
