Influenza has claimed two more victims in Sheridan. Dorothy, wife of Looney Gould, died at the family home on North Sheridan avenue this morning, Jan. 17. Her death is attributed to pneumonia following influenza. She was 55 years old.

Mabel, 18-year-old wife of William H. Vestal, died last night at the family home on North Main street, also from pneumonia following influenza.
