L.G. Jaeger arrived here on a visit to his brother J.P. Jaeger, under unusual circumstances. He was enroute when, east of Billings, a soldier in his sleeper was found to have scarlet fever. The soldier was put off the train for treatment and the car and other occupants placed under quarantine. Health officers along the line were notified to meet the train and take charge of those getting off. Thus County Health Officer Wendle was at the N.P. depot to receive Mr. Jaeger and escort him to his brother’s home, where he will be quarantined until he has passed the period when he could become ill from the disease.
