'IGHTING CONTAGIOUS DIS
One of the great losses of commu
ity life occurs through contagious
iseases. Not to speak of the sor
ow and suffering caused by these
icknesses, there is a large econo
nic loss. There are doctors and
urses and hospital and medicine
ills, and alas undertaker's fees.
It is wise to adopt extensive prne
'entative measures to head off these
courges before they get a hold iin
ny community. It is much cheaper
o check a few cases when they first
ppear than to let an epidemic get
tarted and work its ruin.
In a recent. campaign to secure
ra distribution of anti-toxin in the
~at, of Michigan as a menis of
ighting diphtheria, the state health
ommissioner stated that the lives
f 400 children mill be saved the
rst year the state distributes anti
oxin free. He estimates that say
rig in money cost in that state
rould be $1,000,000. With the cost
f disease and death so heavy, it
eems shortsighted for any state or
ommunity to stint on health mea
