Sunday State Leader for December 17, 1916: Measles killing Guardsmen at Deming.
Not the only news of the day, but two Arkansas Guardsmen died from the measles at Deming, New Mexico, news that surely worried Wyomingites with family members serving in the Guard at Deming.
William F. Cody was reported very ill at his sister's house in Denver.
And death claimed the life of a former Rough Rider living in the state as well.
The State Health Officer reported, in cheerier news, on the state's healthful climate.
