It is pointed out that while the

necessarily be reduced ten percent

that it will be reduced half of that,

It is not definitely known just
how the leprosy bacillus enters the
body. It may be through wounds
of the skin or the lining membrane
of the nose and throat, ami possibly
it may bo taken into the body with
food. It is pretty definitely proven
that no particular article of diet,
such as fish, causes the disease. It
has been thought that some insect
may act as the agent which trans
fers the germs from sick people to
well people. This is not proven .
Whatever the exact mechanism
in the transference of the leprosy
bacillus, practical evidence shows
that the disease is spread mainly by
direct contact, and is most preva
lent where people are dirty and
overcrowded. There is no evidence
that leprosy is hereditary.
Practical experience has shown
that segregation is the only practic
able means of controlling the disease.
A bill appropriating $250,000 for
the purpose of establishing a na
tionafhomo for lepors passed the
House of Representatives on May
1, 1010, and was passed by the
Senate on January 25, 1917. This
provides a national institution for
