Alma, Mich., May 17, 1898.

To the Editor:  —Some weeks ago, I saw in the Journal a communication from some one setting forth, tentatively, the theory that a second-time case of measles will not communicate measles. Six weeks ago Effie G. was taken sick with measles the second time. In the same family is a child of four years who never had measles. She remained in the room with the sick girl nearly all the time, and did not take the disease. If this is the principle in these cases it should be known.Yours,
