(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The spread of Burger’s disease in some Paris quarters is attributed to Russian Jews residing there, in a despatch, from Paris to the London “Daily Express.”

The charge is made that this malady, the cause of which is not known, originates among Russian Jews. Some alarm is felt in Paris over the spread of the disease.
