It lias loen completed: He explained
that there was already such < >ng< --

I ?????! "t Health, shd compared with'
the figure* for th. preceding two'
months, show .1 decrease or 1.071 cases!
from Hie record of 131:. and indicate!
that .luring th.. past summer, typhoid
in iura! Virginia has been cut in
The result of the August tabulation
was awaited with much interest by
health officers. Figures for Juno and
for July of the present year ha.l shown
that there was far lews fever than in
I'Jll, and there was hope that if the
August figures were satisfactory, Vir?
ginia might achieve a unique record
reducing its typhoid fever. Some
Hi -rn was felt, however, as several
small outbreaks bad been reported in
August, and its the season had not
been especially favorable. The figures
arranged yesterday, however, fully
bore out th?. hopes of health workers.
In Atlg?st, 1511, or.? physicians re?
ported to the Board of Health 1.042 '
cases of typhoid. In August of the \
present year, on the same basis. 6S1 ?
' ip.s were reported. I
As there was a reduction of 302 i
cases in June. 1912 and 1.008 cases;
in July, 1912, as compared with the,
same months for the preceding year.'
Hi. aggregate reduction for these has i
been 1.071 cases from a total of 3.19S J
cases In the three months of 1911.
As these figures are from the reports'
? f less than hair the physicians in the j
State, it Is believed that the total
decrease In typhoid during the last
three months; will r?ach 3.000 eases.
Done I... Education.
At the office of the Board of Health,
the reduction in typhoid was freely
discussed yesterday. "Speaking in
round numbers. ' said an officer ..f the
?board, | it is safe to say that there Is
not In Virginia to-day more than half
as much typhoid fever as there was In
1911. Some of this decline, of course,
is due to the comparative mild sea?
son, but statistics from other States
show that in the best and mildest
seasons, the decrease is never more
than twenty per cent below the nor?
mal. The greater part of this decline
must be attributed to the education
of th.- people They have learned how
typh id is spread and how It may b?
prevented, and they are npplying. In
their homes the fundamentals of sani?
tation. One has only to traverse rural
Virginia to see the great improvement
In the crucial matters, sanitary out?
buildings and sanitary wells. It Is
a tribute to the people of Virginia that
they have accepted the truths of mod?
ern sanitation and .have achieved this
"Tile full benefits of what has been
done can only be r.-p.-nted by caro
throughout the year. Neglect of Pre?
cautions will always e followed by
outbreaks, daily regard fot the few
essentials will Insure pood health. If
the Virginia pep:.- continue to Im?
prove their methods of sewcrago dis?
posal, their water supplies and their
milk, we may expect still further de?
clines In typhoid. Preventable disease
is In direct proportion to carelessness.
The field laboratory of the Board of
Health, which has been located in
Roanoke., has about finished its In?
vestigations, but the experts of the
board are still studying the outbreaks
