Rock Island baa bo occasion to com

unmber of cases so far. yet each
physician has one or more patients
suffering with the malady.

the city is as fortunate as it was last
season as far as deaths resulting
from typhoid fever, the people will
have reason to rejoice. Last year
but three cases were fatal. ""Of
course we might expect to hear from
the disease in all sections of the city
now," said the health commissioner,
"as we all are undoubtedly aware
that this is the time probably more
so in August when the disease is
most preralent. ' It is a generally
accepted theory that most of our
typhoid ferer cases hare their origin
in well water. Ton see in the cold
weather the ground, of course, is
frozen and the germs cannot spread.
But so soon as the surface softens
they begin (o spread and wash- into
the wells. , t t i
A conrincing illustration of this
theory comes from a small town
down , In New York state. There
were a few hundred habitants in the
place and all of them used water cut
of what they christened 'the town
pump. It seems there was one man
who didnt get along' with the' owner
of the well and consequently he went
elsewhere for his water. "And he -is
the only person who escaped the dis
ease. Everyone else in the village
Beaee Om Advice.
'Now August is the warmest
month to get through. There is no
better war in my opinion to guard
against the complaint than by keep
ing our systems in god condition.
People are many times alarmed too
mnoh over the contagion of typhoid
ferer. If the n-vmtnm in
dition and the eause we will say
mo wen water is aroiaea. a person
can remain in a house thoroughly
disinfected without catchinir thn dis
ease. The cause is what should be
watched for. Yet the people cannot
get too far away from this ailment."

It may be worth while to note a state
ment by Sir James Cricbton Browne
which suggests a method of avoiding tbe
difficulties experienced during tho cold
of winter. Speaking at a congress - of
plumbers, he pointed out that water
pipes would never burst if protected by
a vacuum. Why, then, be asked, could
not plumbers invent a vacuum pipe? A
space even an eighth of an inch of a high
vacuum would be sufficient. Inclose
tho pipe to be protected in an outer tube,
exhaust the air from the intervening
epaos aud hermetically seal the inclosing
lube at tbe ends. Then no changes of
teuiperaturo could affect the protected
pipe. London Globe.
