Au Important Paper by Charleston
This widespread and all pervading
disease is probably at this period eu-i
gaging the attention of all guardians
of public health to far greater degree
than any other malady. It is a disease
conlind to no locality. It is prevalent
in the Artie Circle and under the
Southern Cross. Wherever mankind
Can live incic luu iuc luuniuiusin
bacillus tbrive. There are a few
localities where there seems to be a
comparative immunity?certain high
hills in Mexico, as atZacatacas, and m
New Mexico, and Colorado, and the
Kngardine, but in almost every place
where teeming millions live there the
baccillus finds a congenial and everpresent
source for its propagation. So
with such an organic cause naturally
where the harvest is ever ready the
keen anxiety of guardians of the general
health of municipalities is engaged
to limit the spread of consumption.
During the past twenty years great advance
his been made in the knowledge
of consumption, and greater and greater
publicity his been giveu to scientific
methods for its limitation?popular
information signifying that the disease
is propagated by the bacillus tuberculosis
has been spread through countless
channels, and that the all-nervad
ing all-compelling necessity exiBts for
the destruction or thorough disinfection
of the sputa of the diseased subject.
Every person affected with this disease
become a burden on the breadwinners
of a long and expensive fight
is at once put in motion. Few survive
and many perish, and evrey tuberoulous
patient is a menace to every member
ofa household. So infinitely small
and minute is this bacillus that when
dried it floats in the air as the mote
floats in the sunbeam. It is taken into
the lungs as the air is inhaled and
it is absolutely imperceptible. Is it
not, therefore, natural and proper that
a ceaseless combat should be carried
out with so insidious a foe? Every
household should realize that every
member who has tuberculosis is a menace
every other member of the home
circle. The remedy is at hand. Des
troy the sputa, and do it at once.
The tubercle bacillus is one seventhousandth
of an inch in lenth : in
breath one hundred and twenty-five
thousandth of an inch. It varies somewhat,
but the above is an average statement
of the dimensions of this infinitely
Let us see what is the harvest in
Charleston for one year of the tubercle
There were deaths from consumption,
22 whites, 126 black and colored :
mirrasmus,4 whites, 54 black and colored
; tuberculosis, 18 whites, 68 black
and colored. Total, whites 44 ; black
and colored 248.
Two hundred and ninety-two deaths
due to the great white plague and its
One death in every six of the deaths
in Charleston due to one cause.
There were more deaths among the
white race from the tubercle bacillus
than there were from typhoid fever,
diphtheria and scarlet fever.
There were more deaths among the
colored race from the tubercle bacillus
than from diptheria, scarlet fever, typhoid
fever,cancer and kidney di-ease,
and this tubercle bacillus is a specific,
well known form of bacterial species.
Is it not time to push all our energies
towards, its destruction ? One of the
most important public acts should be
to forbid the entry or admission of a
tuberculous patient into the public
or private hospital. Provision should
be made by every municipal government
for a separate ward for all such
causes. Outside of the requirements of
the Christian dispensation for us to
succor the poor and the needy it is a
necessity for our own protection in
limiting the spread of a dangerous
We submit a circular issued by this
department January 1, 1895, for the
guidance of all interested in this
crusade against consumption :
Department of Health.
Charlestion, S. C. January 1, 1895.
Consumption is a disease which can
be taken from others and is not simply
caused by colds. A cold may make it
easier to take the disease. It is usually
caused by germs which enter the body
with the air breathed. The matter
which consumptives cough or spit up
contains the germs in great numbers?
frequently millions are discharged in a
single day. This matter, spit upon
the floor, wall or elsewhere, is apt to
dry, become pulverized and float in the
air as dust. The dubt contains the
germs, and thus they enter the body
with the air breathed. The breath of
a consumptive does not contain the
germs and will not produce the disease.
A well person catches the disease
from a consumptive only by in some
way taking in the matter coughed up
by the consumptive.
Consumption can often be cured if
its nature is recognized early and
proper means are taken for its treatment.
In a majority of cases it is
not a fatal disease.
It is not dangerous for other persons
to live with a consumptive if the
matter coughod up by the consumptive
is at once destroyed. This matters
should not be spit upon the floor,
carpet, stove, wall or street, or anywhere
excpt into a cup kept for that
purpose. The cup should conlain
water, so that the mater may not dry
and should be emptied into the closet
at least twice a day and carefully
washed with hot water. Great care
should be taken by a consumptive
that his handn, face and clothing do
not become soiled with the matter
coughed up. If they do become
soiled they should be at once washed
with hot soap and water. When
consumptives are away from home
the matter coughed up may be received
on cloths, which should be at once
burned on returniug home. If hand
kerchiefs are used (worthless cloths
which can be burned are far better)
they should be boiled in water by
themselves before being washed.
It is better for a consumptive to
sleep alone, and his bed clothiug and
personal clothing should be boiled and
washed separately from the clothing
belonging to other people.
Whenever a person is thought to be
suffering from consunption, the name
and address should be sent at once to
the health department, on a postal
card, with a statement of this fact.
Frequently a person suffering from
consumption may not only do his
usual work without giving the disease
to others, but may al?o get well if the
matter coughed up is properly destroyed.
Rooms that have been occupied by
consumptives should be thoroughly
A 3 ?1_ t 1
uieuLieu, auuuutu, WUlieWttSUHU,
painted or papered before they are
agained occupied. Carpets, rugs, bedding,
etc; from rooms which have
been occupied by consumptives should
be disinfected. The health department
should be notified when they
will be sent for, disinfected and returned
to the owner free of charge, or,
if he so desires they will be destroyed.
By order of the board of health.
T. R. McGahan, Chairman,
H. B. Horlbeek, M. I)., Health Officer.
