Hugh Timm Writes to His Brother of His Experiences on a Reef An interesting letter has been received by Mrs. M.H. Timm of 404 West Locust street from her son, Hugh Timm. While the letter is directed to Charles Timm, he is out of the city with a theater organization. But the letter brings good news to Mrs. Timm and to all who know the writer, for he had been reported lost in a typhoon. The letter tells of his perils and of his relief as follows: Alor, P.I. Jan 26 I received your letter and was glad to hear that you got home safe from here. (Charles Timm had been with his bother in service.) I suppose you have heard about the U.S. transport Indiana, when it was struck by the typhoon. We were reported lost in Manila. We were gone three days when we ran on a coral reef and stayed there 12 days. I am no in Balor where Lieutenant Gilmore and his men were captured. So you do not want to expect a letter but every three months for I cannot write any sooner. We are 60 miles from nowhere and the only way we can get word is from the boats on the bay. I did not receive my Christmas package by this mail. I suppose Vince O'Day and all the rest of the boys would like to see someone back home. I have no more to say, so I will close my letter. Your brother, Hugh Timm, Co. H. Twenty-second United States regular infantry.

Lou Hennings the Victim, Who Has Been Attending School Here. The people of McCausland are considerably excited over the appearance of smallpox at that place. Yesterday Dr. Henry Matthey of the board of health received a telephone message stating that Lou Hennings, a young man who had been attending school in this city, had, it is believed a case of smallpox. The Hennings home is about one mile from McCausland and is now under quarantine but this does not rest the fears of the people thereabouts, for many have come in contact with him. The doctors of McCausland have held a consultation in regard to the matter and it is probable that other homes will be put under quarantine. It is said that Hennings contracted the disease in this city at a house where the quarantine had been recently removed, but this is a mere theory.
