SEYMOUR, IND., March 3. – The County Council was called in special session yesterday to act on a number of bills for maintaining a quarantine between this and Washington counties during the recent epidemic of smallpox. The total amount of bills presented was for $3,600, but the Council allowed only $2,500. The quarantine between the two counties was raised last Tuesday.
