114 (Medical):St. Vitus' dance,Also called Sydenham's chorea, St. Vitus' dance, is a disorder effecting children and characterized by jerky, uncontrollable movements, either of the face or of the arms and legs.
General Information about St. Vitus' dance,St. Vitus' dance, is a disorder that occurs in children and is associated with rheumatic fever. Rheumatic fever is an acute infectious disease caused by certain types of streptococci bacteria. It usually starts with strep throat or tonsillitis. These types of streptococci are able to cause disease throughout the body. The most serious damage caused by rheumatic fever is to the valves in the heart. At one time, rheumatic fever was the most common cause of damaged heart valves, and it still is in most developing countries around the world. Rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease are still present in the industrialized countries, but the incidence has dropped substantially.Rheumatic fever may appear in several different forms. St. Vitus' dance, is one of five "major criteria" for the diagnosis of rheumatic fever. There are also four "minor criteria" and two types of laboratory tests associated with the disease. The "Jones criteria" define the diagnosis. They require laboratory evidence of a streptococcal infection plus two or more of the criteria. The laboratory evidence may be identification of streptococci from a sore throat or antibodies to streptococcus in the blood. The most common criteria are arthritis and heart disease, occurring in half to three-quarters of the patients. St. Vitus' dance,, characteristic nodules under the skin, and a specific type of skin rash occur only 10% of the time

General Discussion
Henoch-Schonlein purpura is a rare inflammatory disease of the small blood vessels (capillaries) and is usually a self-limited disease. It is the most common form of childhood vascular inflammation (vasculitis) and results in inflammatory changes in the small blood vessels. The symptoms of Henoch-Schonlein purpura usually begin suddenly and may include headache, fever, loss of appetite, cramping abdominal pain, and joint pain. Red or purple spots typically appear on the skin (petechial purpura). Inflammatory changes associated with Henoch-Schonlein purpura can also develop in the joints, kidneys, digestive system, and, in rare cases, the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system).
In one form of the disorder, termed Schonlein's purpura, the skin and joints are affected but the gastrointestinal tract is not. In another form, known as Henoch's purpura, affected individuals have purplish spots on the skin and acute abdominal problems. People with Henoch's purpura are not affected by joint disease.
The exact cause of Henoh-Schonlein purpura is not fully understood, although research suggests that it may be an autoimmune disease or, in some rare cases, an extreme allergic reaction to certain offending substances (e.g., foods or drugs)

132 (Research): Obituary"Frances A. Shupe, eldest child of William and Nancy Shupe, was born near Owen Sound, Canada, March 21, 1849, and departed this life September 23, 1921.
When a young child she removed with her parents to Decorah, Iowa, thence to Fillmore County, Minnesota, and later to McIntire, where she met and married Daniel W. Kaiser, of Lime Springs. They spent the better part of their life at McIntire, later removing to Jamestown, North Dakota, where they remained about ten years. From there they removed to Puyallup, Washington, where the deceased met with a great sorrow in the loss of her husband. After returning to McIntire she made her home for a time with her brother, George A. Shupe and family, and with her sister and husband, Mr. and Mrs. F.E. Sanders, of Fayette, in whose home she remained over two years.
On the 12th day of August, 1920, she married Henry Farnam, of Forestburg, South Dakota, from which place her spirit took its flight to the God who gave it.
Early in life she felt the need of her Saviour. She was baptised in the faith and united with the Baptist church of McIntire, of which denomination she remained a faithful member. Funeral services were conducted in South Dakota and in Iowa. Funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. Bodenham, from the Baptist church at McIntire, after which the body was laid to rest beside her loved ones on the family lot in the McIntire cemetery."

RONALD HONDERICH September 30, 2007 In loving memory of a husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. In a quiet graveyard, where the gentle breezes blow; Lies the one we love so dearly, who we lost one year ago. Your resting place we visit, and put flowers there with care; But no one knows the heartache, when we turn and leave you there. Our thoughts are always with you, Your place no one can ever fill; In life we loved you dearly , In death we love you still. They say time heals all sorrows, and helps us to forget; But time has only proved, how much we miss you yet. Sadly missed by wife Melba and family
