SICKNESS AT CAPE GIRARDEAU
The St. Louis Republican of the 6th inst. says that from the lst to the 3d inst. there were many cases of a strange sickness, supposed to be cholera, at Cape Girardeau, thirteen of which terminated fatally.  During the general visitation last summer this river town escaped the cholera.  Source--The Louisana Times-Picayune, Nov 14, 1849.



PATIENT, 104, GAINS AFTER OPERATION
John Abernathy
Cape Girardeau, MO--John Abernathy of Longtown, Mo., reported in good condition after an emergency bladder operation, probably will be home in time to observe his birthday December 28.  It will be his 105th.  Abernathy entered the Osteopathic Hospital here Monday night for the operation.  Attendants said he'll probably be able to walk around again today and should be able to go home later this week.
