is one in which the merchant 'him

not advertise it. You are safe in
patronizing the merchants whose

The medical profession of Ha-'
waii will soon have an opportunity ,
of judging the value of the lu'ocr-!
culin cure for pulmonary lulieieu
losis from the results attained in
its use at the Leahi Ilomejn Ho
nolulu and these, as tliey are now
being prepared by Dr. A. N. Sin
clair, director of the Anti-Tuberculosis
work in the Territory, are
being awaited with the greatest
interest. As Doctor Sinclair re
cently commenced a series of
papers o n tuberculosis for Tin:
(iAKiu-x Island, his success at the
Leahi Home should be of partic
ular interest to our own reade rs,
laymen as well as those of his own
The medical profession still looks
witii considerable doubt on tuber
culin as a cure for consumption
although in many European hos
pitals it is used exclusively where
circumstances permit. The figures
of Doctor Sinclair's work shows
that out of thirty-two cases which
he was able to treat bv this me'.hod
twenty four have been cured.
That term of course is used advis
edly. Even at the home it is called
an "apparent cure" owing to the
prejudice against admitting ' that
any individual case is obsolutcly!
cured. Continual observation and
tests however show no recurrence
of the disease and with the excep
tion of only one or two patients
stronger than they normally were
before the disease mastered them.
J T is fairly certain, too, that the
Wiejit with which no success has
been had are themselves more or
less responsible as they insisted
upon absenting themselves from
treatment too often and did not
observe their doctor's instructions
and commands with the fidelity
that is required in the treatment
of an- case. Of the twenty four
whose cure means certain, tight
have already been discharged and
the others will all leave the home
within the next two months.
This report of Doctor Sinclair
is to have a vital effect on the anti
tuberculosis ci.mpaign which is
daily rowing stronger and reach
ing with a sure hand to further
corners o f the Territory. This
campaign as Doctor Sinclair has
already explained to the readers
of Tin; OAkukn' Island is attack
ing the diseases at two vulnerable
points. The first of these is the
conditions that spread the infec
tion and the second is the patients
who spread it. The fact that cure
seems certain when the case is
not too far advanced and consider
ably to the hope entertained that
this last method will lessen the
infection considerably eacn patient
is a source of infection and each
one removed from a contamina
ting influence with others or train
ed to conduct himself without
danger to his friends, is one source
Two important points will be
made by Doctor Sinclair in his
coming paper before the Hawaiian
Medical Association. Oneof these
is that the old methods of diaRno-;
sis are falling into disuse and that;
not so much importance is attach
eil 'bv the more advanced sani
tariums, to the amount of lung
tissue involved by the disease.
Consequently the records are be
coming silent as to whether con
sumption has seated itself in the
"right lower lobe," or the left
tipper lobe" of the lung and three
classifications only are being re
sorted to. The first is called the
1 "i f 1 1t-1, '1 1 ct'.rrf, tcluirji nrn its .-
dinarilv, it now appears, possible1
by a verv simple treatment. The
second is the consolidation stage
where cure becomes decidedly less
certain and the last stage is the
cavity where cure is hopeless.
For this reason the attention of
the Anti-Tuberculosis League is
being turned towards securing
control of as many patients in the
first stages of the disease as pos
sible. It is confidently expected
that if this were done seventy -five
or eighty percent of them would
be cured and the mortabty from
this disease reduced to that ex
tent. Kor instance, had the 303
caes who died last year, as re
ported in these columns bv Doctor
Sinclair, been discovered when

of tile in would have been cured.
Unfortunately the bad living con
ditions of the poor make them
first viclinio and so the work of
the League in attempting to save
the breadwinners of these families
is one of great economic im
portance as well as ot humanity.
Tin; Gakd:;n Island has been
asked by the League to assist as
much as possible in the campaign
and will be onl too glad to do so.
It can best do this by the publicity
work and is glad to announce that
articles by many of the leading
workers of the campaign, including
Doctor Sinclair have been secured.
The latter is now preparing a
simple paper on the operation of
the tuberculin cure which is based
on fascinating, romantic experi
ments in the deeper science. Yet
Doctor Sinclair has set it forth so
simply as to be easily understood
even b y the layman most un
acquainted vilh the subject.
Tin; Gakdkn Island however,
is in a position to do a great deal
more than this within its own
sphere In intimate touch, as it
is, with the head of the work it
will be able to place any patient
in direct touch with the authorities
and to answer through its columns
any questions that may be sent to
it that may possibly be left cloud
ed by our articles on the disease.
Ye sincerely trust that the public
will take advantage of this and
assist the League and Tin; Gak-
! dkn Island in placing Kauai in
, the. forefront of the "reduced
i mortality " list it is hoped will
result from the campaign.
