PACTS ABOUT MALARIA.
Sow Mosqnitoes Breed the Disease
and Its .Prevention.
The Department of Agriculture Is
continually getting out bulletins for
the farmer, concerning various topics
of interest. Among the recent bulle
tins waB one prepared on the sub
ject, "Facts About Malaria." The
disease, known as malaria, is caused
by parasites that enter the blood,
and feed on the red cells. Warm
climates are peculiarly conductive to
malaria, and it is chiefly in such
climates that malaria is worse.
These paraistes multiply very rapid
ly and in a short time millions of
them are in the body. It may hap
pen that after having been treated a
person thinks he is free from the dis
ease, and has killed out 'all but one
of the parasites, but this one may
multiply and give him fever again.
The fever itself is not so dangerous
as is the fact that It weakens the
body, leaving it an easy prey should
death approach in another disease.
The way these parasites are car
ried about is chiefly by the ano
pheles mosquito. This mosquito
having fed upon a person 'already in
fected with the malarial parasite,
gives this parasite to every other
person he bites. This mosquito sel
doms bites before sundown and there
are two ways of distinguishing him;
by the way he holds himself uuou
the wall, usually the body of a mos
quito Is paralell to the wall upon
which ne is standing but this mosqui
tos* body leans away from the wall
at an angle; then the wing of this
special mosquito Is spotted.
These mosuitoes seldom travel
more than half a mile from their
breeding place, and that is why some
regions are said to be malarious.
There are three different ways to
fight this malaria. First, by me
chanically protecting yourself from
the mosquito by screens, nets etc.
In Italy, where the disease ' was
especially prevalent several years
ago, it became a rule that persons
had to wear veils and gloves in some
district. By this means of mechan
ical, protection the malaria rate was
reduced from 65 or 70 per cent down
to 14, but here it remained. The
second method Is that of extermi
nating the mosquito. Take care that
all cans of water, pools of stagnant
water, and even the backwater of a
(running stream, be watched and
guarded. There are many ways of
killing the mosquitoes, two Blmple
ways being to pour oil or throw
lime on the waters where they are
breeding. The third method of
fighting malaria is that of systemati
cally treating, the malarious Infected
district, usually with quinine. In
Italy, free quinine was distributed
by the government, usually prepared
i in some chocolate or other sweet
confectionery. By this method the
malaria rate van reduced to 4 per
cent. Dr. Ronald Ross, the dis
coverer of the relation of malaria
with the mosquito advises that an
adult patient take five grains of sul
phate of quinine every day for four
months, together with whatever de
tails of treatment the attending phy
sician should direct.
