With the closing of the emergency hospital February 25, the typhoid epidemic at Butler, Pa., may be fairly said to have come to an end. The total number of cases during the outbreak has been about 1,364, and the number of deaths 115. A noteworthy and deplorable feature of the epidemic has been the infection of some twenty of the nurses, amounting to nearly 10 per cent of the number employed.
