nois Medical society convention.
coming lu last evening. Dr. Pet
tit is chairman of the society's special
committee on the prevention of tuber
culosis, and in that capacity will make
one of the most interesting committee
reports of the entire convention. His
committee has the distinction of being
able to report that every' suggestion
made in the outline of its work, at the
ast convention at Bloomington, has
been accomplished or is now under
way. Though Dr. Pettit himself takes
little credit for these results, he has
been untiring in his work during the
year, and has given over half of his
time and proiiortionately of his ener
gies and means to the work of the
committee. In this work he has asso
ciated with him Prof. C. L. Mix, of the
Northwestern Medical school, and Dr.
J. F. Percy, of Galesburg. Both are
to give addresses on tuberculosis
treatment before the section on medi
cal practice. They have been as en
thusiastic in their work as their chair
man. I'oiiuded Trnt Colony.
Dr. Pettit is enthusiastic over the
subject of scientific treatment of tuber
culosis. He has the distinction of hav
ing founded the only successful tent
colony in the Mississippi valley, where
tuberculosis is treated on the principle
of fresh air and good food. This col
ony at Ottawa has treated successfully
about 12. patients, and there are 35
who are taking treatment there at the
present time. The results obtained at
Ottawa are equally as good as in any
similar colony in the United Htates or
in European countries.
Dr. Pettit, in speaking of the institu
tion, says: Our a;m was to prove first
that tuberculosis could be successfully
treated without the patient's leaving
Illinois, and to Influence the legisla
ture to make an appropriation for the
care of poor patients in the state. We
have been successful jn both aims, the
legislature last week making an ap
propriation of $25,000 for the establish
ment of a sanitarium for the care of
consumptives. While this amount is
but a beginning, it Is sufficient to com
mit the state to the principle of state
care of tuberculosis, patients.
' Jrjerei of )l)taol. '
"Ill'nois has done more In the last
year in the way of scientific campaign
ing against tuberculosis than any oth
er state of the union has done in all
time." said Dr. Pettit. in speaking of
the committee's work during the year.
There have been at the Ottawa tent
colony since its organization, 125 pa
tients, and at present are being car
ed for there. More can not be accom
modated. The patients, according to
Dr. Pettit, have slept In their tents
during the entire winter, of their own
accord, and his observation is that
they do even better In the extreme cold
weather than during the summer
Dr. IVttlt, in speaking of the results
of the committee's experiments, gives
great credit to the press of the state.
He said: "One reason why this state
has accomplished so much during the
year is that the medical profession and
the press of the state have been work
ing together in the interests of the
campaign against tuberculosis. Our
reports have been fully published, and
everywhere we get the best from the
newspapers in the way of publicity of
our investigations and theories. It
would bo of no value for us to know
the proper treatment of this scourge
unless the publ'c is made aware of
our knowledge of the methods of pre
vention and cure."
biiiumtlr Sclener llrlpa.
In his work at the Ottawa institute
Dr. Pettit has an able assistant In
Miss Adella Safer, a graduate and for
mer teacher at the Lewis institute in
Chicago. Before taking up the work
at Ottawa she was employed by the
state of Wisconsin as a demonstrator
for farmers' institutes. She is the first
woman to graduate from a domestic
science course and apply the work to
treatment of tuberculosis. She is a
dietitian of unquestioned ability, and
her address before the medical section-!
on the imjtortance of diet in the treat
ment of tuberculosis will be of particu
lar interest. She has entire charge of
the preparation of the diet lists at the
tent colony and her work has beeu

There is a magnificent display at
the First M. E. church in the way of
surgical instruments, books and spec
ialties. The doctors say the exhibit is
one of the best and most interesting
in the history of the society.
William Whit ford, of Chicago, the
official stenographer or the society is
orobably as well known to the profes
sion as any man in the country. He
s an expert in his line and is one of
the most genial and wholesouled fei-
fellows that one meets in connection
with a great convention.
Many of the visitors are enjoying th
courtesies of the Rock Island club.
