J.A. Martin is Barred Out Because of
When J. A. Martin, a railroad employee, returned from a trip to Columbus, O., Thursday and started to enter his home at 16 Walcott street he met physicians leaving the place, who told him that he could not go in, as there was smallpox there. The patient is Claude B. Stanley, also a railroad man, who returned from a trip to Columbus, O., a few days ago, where he contracted the disease. He has been sent to the detention hospital and Mrs. Martin and her two children place under quarantine. Mr. Martin said he was compelled to leave his regular boarding house in Columbus, O., on account of smallpox breaking out among the boarders during his absence, and when he returned to his home in this city he found he could not get into his own home on account of smallpox.
