The Denaby Main Colliery Company, in view of the alarming outbreak of small pox amongst their tenants of the houses, intend erecting an iron isolation hospital, the more efficiently to with the disease.

This hospital is to be more accommodating than the present one, and will be removed from the habited quarter.

Small Pox.—The epidemic has spread until it is stated there are now 18 cases in Denaby, the last one occurring on Saturday. A case has broken out at Swinton, in White’s square, Station street. The patient—a boy—has been removed to the hospital in Rockingham road.
