The following is taken from the re
port of the State Board of Health:
IS DIPHTHERIA CONTAGIOUS?
These facts are published for the pur
pose of correcting a misapprehension
which, to some extent, exists in tbe
public mind regarding the question of
the contagiousness of Diphtheria. Un
fortunately, every year there are found
persons or communities which arc not
yet quite sure that Diphtheria is infec
tious, and. like the person who proves
whether the pistol is loaded or not by
aiming it at bis own head or that of
some other person and pulling the trig
ger, these doubting persons often infect
themselves, their families, or their
neighbors, and keep up and provide
sources of infection which insure the
non-extinction of the disease.
The direct communication of tbe di
sease is shown in the following in
stances: A young lady came home sick with
Diphtheria in a mild form, and on her
arrival her brothers and sisters em
braced her. Tbcy were all attacked
with a malignant type ot Diphtheria,
and one died. The young lady visited
her aunt in another family where there
were four children, who took the di
sease, and one died.
At the death of a child from Diph
theria, two women helped in layiug it
out. One of them, who was fifty-three
years of age, was attacked in a few days,
and died in three more; the other took
the disease in a light form, and recov
ered. A boy who bad Diphtheria visited
some relatives. In a few days after
his arrival his aunt washed some of his
cbthing, and was taken sick with Diph
theria the next week, and it went
through the family four cases. Be
fore the aunt was taken sick, the boy
went to play with another boy, who
took the Diphtheria and gave it to two
other persons in that family.
An only child was taken sick with
Diphtheria, and died on tbe fourth day.
The young mother in her grief kissed
the child and took the disease; within
a week she was buried beside her child.
In 1881 there had been no Diphther
ia in a neihborhoi 1 for nearly four
years. The school teacher, during a
summer vacation, .st to tho city, a
notorious hot-bed of Diphtheria.
While there, he contracted what he
called a slight sore throat; he returned
with this still upon him and opened
school; in less than a week there were
six lying sick with Diphtheria and the
school was closed. As the children
spread the disease in several families,
it resulted iu five Jeaths, three of whieli

A lady went to help tare for a fami
ly sick with Diphtheria; two of the pa
tients died and one recovered. Three
weeks after the recovery of the last pa
tient, aud after disiniection of the
house and the surviving persons, the
lady returned to her horns, a section
where Diphtheria Lad not been known
for a long time; five days after her re
turn, her only daughter, a girl of thir
teen, took tbe disease and died.
A woman died of Diphtheria; her son
brought ber clothing and bedding home

Another thii.g which makes the iufec

ously another epidemic at some future
tiiac months or perhaps years after
wards: A bov visited a family vrltre tl ere
were cases of Diphtheria; he took the
diit-a-f in a liht form sua recovered.
Ur on hi3 return home his MSler, aged
sixteen, toot tiie disease ai d died in
three days. Six months afterwards an
other sister occupied the room which
bad been the sick-room, took the Diph
theria and died after five weeks' sick
ness. A little girl nine years of age was
found by the physician to have Diph
theria in a malignant form, and died
two days afterwards. The sanitary
condition of the place seemed vtsry good,
and no other cases of Diphtheria were
in the neighborhcod. It was ascer
tained that the grandfather, of whom
the child was very fond and in whose
lap she would sit much of the time, had
come from a neighboring town to spend
a few weeks with them that in his
family eight months previously there
had been several cases of Diphtheria,
one fatal. Tbe children had been sick
in a room, adjacent to which was a
clothes-press where tbe old gentleman's
c'.othts had hung. He had no occasion
to use them until the present visit to
his daughter's. That clothes press had
not been disinfected.
These cases will unmistakably show
the dangerously infectious character of
Diphtheria, and it is hoped that by call
ing attention to this subject in this
special manner, every person and every
community may be influenced to be
careful not to spread the disease, and
to demand of every person the same re
gard for the rights and the safety of
others. The assurance that a dUcasa
is contagious or infectious is an assur
ance that it is a preventable disease.
As soon as it is found that a person
has Diphtheria, he should immediately
be separated from the rest of the fam
ily and put into a sunny and well-ven
tilated room, preferably on the upper
floor and as disconnected as possibln
from other rooms, especially the living
and sleeping-rooms of children,
Before moving the patient into the
room, all needless articles, such as con
tents of wardrobes, etc., which would
catch the infection, should be removed.
No other person besides the nurse and
necessary attendants should be permit
ted in the room, and thoy should take
special precautions not to carry tho in
fection. Their communication with
the rest of the family should be as re
stricted as possible.
The secretary of the local board of
health, or health officer, should immed
iately be notified, and should oo operate
with the physician to keep the disease
from spreading. Children and parents
from other houses should be warned;
and, if they needlessly and obstinately
persist in coming, tbey should be driv
Neither the nurse nor any other per
son should eat or drink anything in the
sick-room, or anything which bas been
there. Food which the patient has left
should be burned.
Cats and dogs should be kept from
the siok chamber, or better, out ot the
house, for their far can easily carry the
infection. These animals, as well as
some others, sometimes have Diphther
ia, and communicate it to children.
The dishes which the patient usee
should not be used by others, or washed
with other dishes; they shoull be wash
ed by themselves in boiling-hot water".
The utui ist care must be taken that
the discharges from the inoulli, tiiro.t
