DEATH AND PESTILENCE IN SERVIA
A DREADFUL PICTURE (Rec. March 24, 1.310 p.m.) London, March 24. Sir Thomas Lipton, who has returned from a visit to Servia, says that a fire is needed to clear Servia of typhus fever. Houses and clothing, he urgc6, must be burned. Scarcely enough people remain to dig graves for the dead, whoso bodies are lying exposed in' cemeteries, and tho situation has got beyond control. One source,of infection is the black bread, the only ration which is supplied to hospitals. The patients place it beneath pillows. Peddlers buy the unused loaves and sell them to the Seople outside, thus spreading the isease.
