Plague in Lahore.

JUDGING from the daily reports of plague cases, it is scarcely possible to say that the plague shows any sign of abatement in Lahore. On the contrary, the figures show a tendency to rise as the area of infection continues to increase. There are no doubt a certain number of lanes where the infection seems to persist and the epidemic does not appear to be content with taking a stray victim as its toll, but continues to demand further victims with steady and sustained persistence. The number of cases reported on the 4th instant rose to 15 with four deaths. There is a further danger that these figures high as they are for a single day, might not be an accurate index of the real extent to which the disease is causing havoc in the city.
