Defense Against All Diseases
In dealing withv contagious di
seases, the following notes are in
defense of proper health precau
tions, and appear in the report of
the Sanitary Commission for 1912:
Section l. Tim Mouth.
Diseases which reach usthtougli
the inouth, such as typhoid, cholera,
and dysentery, can be prevented
by having pure water, clean food
and an adequate sewerage system,
and by exterminating the housefly.
lo aid and secure this defence
it is essential to study the condi-
tioirs in regard to our sewers; the
source of our water supply, its
purity and freedom from infection;
the protection of the catchment
basins and storage reservoirs; and
the advoidancc of the common
Buy no meat, fish, vegetables,
fruit, milk or ice that is not certain
to be trcsh. clean, and pure.'
Patronize only those who screen
their foodstuffs from flies.
Investigate how the vegetables
you use are cultivated, and where
they are washed.
Patronize restaurants whereboth
the kitchens and dining rooms are
screened, and where only boiled or
distilled drinking water is served.
Insist that fliesareanuuneqessary
nuisance, and remember Mat tneir
source is usually stable manure.
Section II. Contact
Diseases that we take by contact,
such as tuberculosis, leprosy,
smallpox, and measles can best be
guarded against by enforced
ventilation, better living condi
tions, avoidance of over-crowding
and school infection, with educa
tion of the masses as to the mode
of their spread.
This defense we can aid by liv
ing only where the light can
penetrate and where there is. at
least 400 cu. ft. of air space for
each person; by reporting land
lords, who offer for rent, dark,
damp, dirty rooms, and by study
ing our own living conditions, if
ill, to see how we can save others
from contagion and infection.
Section III. Insects.
In diseases spread by insects,
such as plague, cholera, yellow
fever and dengue, all depends on
the extermination o f the trans
mitting agent rats find their fleas,
and mosquitoes of all kinds.
To aid this defense each one can
help the rat campaign, to build
the rat out of existence," to de
stroy and remove his breeding
places, starve, poison and kill him.
See that refuse and swill neither
protect nor feed him, that grain
and feed are out of his reach. Rat
harbors are wooden sidewalks,
attics, piles of brush and kindling
wood, old barrels and lumber.
Boarded or closely-latticed places
under houses ofrer a fine refuge.
We should see that they are re
moved or so adjusted that under
the house the rat will not longer
feel safe from his enemies.
We should help the mosquito
campaign by destroying and re
moving all breeding places first
around and then at a distance from
habitations. Any standing water is
apt to be a breeding place, if the
mosquito can reach it. The con
tents of ponds, watertanks, flower
pots, water troughs for animals or
chickens, spots that are continual
ly damp and muddy water hold
ing plants, defective drains and
gutters, empty cans, bottles, hol
low slumps and trees or branches
that hold water are all sources of
danger in that the mosquito will
find water in them. Running wa
ter, when crowded with grasses or
water-plants, furnishes quiet places
in which mosquitoes can breed.
Streams that are intermittent i u
their flow, leaving hollows and
pools, should be paved.
Section IV. Knowledge.
Finally the surest defense i s
knowledge. When men know the
cause of disease and the reaspn for
premature death, then that know
ledge will bring with it the public
support that is essential to protect
ourselves from the environments
that cause suffering, loss and waste.
It is not sufficient for experts to
know the cause of dise'ase and the
methods of its spread, but the peo
ple at large must Le instructed so
that disease appearing anywhere
may be restricted to its place of
origin and there confined and ex

Two souls were saved as a result
of the use of $10 worth of adver
tising space in' a Chicago paper.
This is the statement of Rev.
Benjamin Mickle Brown, a Chica
go minister, who sells insurance
for a living and preaches for noth
ing. He bought the space with
his own money and considers the
saving of souls at $50 each to be
cheap. He advises other churches
to follow the example, as foreign
missionaries place the average cost
of saving a soul at $300.
In a two-column advertisement,
nine inches deep, headed in heavy
black type "GOD'S WORD,"
Rev. Brown quoted Paul's message
t o the Thessalonians. Concern
ing the success of his experiment
the minister said:
"God's word will do its own
work. All we have to do is to cir
culate it. I believe we have found
the'niost effective way in news-!
paper advertising. As soon as we.
suggest God we create a desire, It
is highly important to keep his
name before the people, although
there are some who do not believe
many forget their God,
