One of the Latest Victims of Epidemic in Spain.

MADRID, May 31.—Colonel Joseph E. Willard, the American Ambassador, is one of the latest victims of the epidemic of the disease resembling grippe which has swept over Spain, causing the illness of more than 150,000 persons in Madrid alone.

King Alfonso has recovered sufficiently to resume work. His aunt, Infanta Isabel, is ill of the disease.

The epidemic is now diminishing, both here and in the provinces.
