sls Germs Says Physician
Cleveland Ohio Dec 26 Ttnrtrcats
spread tuberculosis and are a menace
to the family was declared today by
Dr W li Ensor of Lake Wood who
within the six months has dissected
more than a hundred of the animals
Among Dr Eensors patients Tvas tho
head of a family who was affilcted
with tuberculosis From the history1
of the case the doctor was convinced
that the family cat had brought the
disease to the house As a result he
made an investigation He ottered
money for cats and a hundred or
more were killed and examined
I found in all of them germs of
tuberculosis the doctor said Of
course not all the cats were in the
last stages of the disease although at
least 30 per cent were in a serious
condition I venture to say that
enough of the germs were present to
make any of them a danger to a
household Cats prowl around in va
rious places and thus carry the germs
with them The household pets are a
menace
