Relatively Greater for Tuberculosis
New Orleans Times-Democrat..
I The census bureau's report on mortality
statistics for 15)00, made public
some days ago, while by no means
covering the entire country, presents
some interesting and significant fig.
ures on the prevalence of tuberculosis
and its alarming growth among the
negroes. The report is based upon
mortality returns from fi fit ecu Commonwealths,
which are classed as registration
States, the District of Columbia
and seventy-seven cities in
which satisfactory returns were secured
from the municipal authorities.
As no Southern State, save Maryland,
is included in the "registration"
class, the data, s<> far as this section
is concerned, is not of j.Tcal value.
But the prevalence of tuberculosis
among the negroes of other sections
and in the regis! rat ion cities outside
of (he fifteen registration States is

Bg |fmd it is reported that, while the averBBL..jige
white death rate in those munici|Et|)alities
was 17.2 per cent, the black
itj|||8|leath rate was 2S.I per cent, about
gfU'0 per cent, higher. The higher rate
(9Vaimong the latter race is attributed
jjiPpy principally to their susceptibility to
pulmonary tuberculosis and pueuSBp
monia. These two diseases in all tire
mortality reports stand at the head
of the list, the former having caused
B -lo0.4 deaths per .100,000 of population
and the latter 140.0. Of the registraffi
tion States, Maryland had the sceond

formed to combat the spread of tuberculosis
among the race. Plans for
a systematic campaign were discussed
and the assistance of the State
board of health was tendered to the
members of the association.
The movement deserves the cooperation
of all. If tuberculosis is to be
successfully fought in the south it
must, of course, be stamped out
among the negroes, for its prevalence '
among them is a constant menace to
t'heir white neighbors. Much may be
accomplished by teaching the negroes
the prime importance of sanitation
and ventilation, and the members of
the association, if they will but carry
out their avowed intentions, can do a

their people from the ravages of the

All Itching Skin Diseases Which Are
Not Hereditary Instantly Relieved
by Oil of Wintergreen.
Can Eczema be cured?
Some physicians say "Yes."
Sonu> say "No."
) The real question is, "What is
I meant by Kczema?" It' you mean
those scaly eruptions, those diseases
which make their first appearance, not
at birth, but years afterward, and
perhaps not until middle age?then
there can no longer be any question
that these forms of Kczema are curable.
Simple vegetable oil of wintergreon,
mixed with other vegetable ingredients,
will kill the germs that infest
t the skin. Apply this prescription to
the skin, and instantly that awful
itch is gone. The very moment the
liquid is applied, that agonizing, tantalizing
itch disappears, and continued
applicatoiis of this external remedy
soon cuiv the disease.
