(Lebanon News.)

Influenza has broken out again in Lebanon and the number of cases exceeds any previous record for Lebanon. Some 18 or 20 cases were reported Monday and Tuesday. As yet no one is seriously ill and the malady appears to be in a lighter form than when it swept the county a few weeks ago causing the death of possibly 150 people.

On account of the new outbreak here and the further fact that there are hundreds of cases in other parts of the county Judge Burns decided not to hold the regular December court and only the grand jury was permitted to convene.
