Jim Evans, son of Lafayette Evans and an ex-marshal of Gillette, lies very sick at his father's home and the chances for his recovery are anything but bright. Dr. Cantril of Douglas came down Monday to consult with Dr. Magaby on the case, the former confirming the latter's diagnosis of the disease as general paresis.
