City Where Arteeian Well Water Is
Used, In Throe of Disease
Mut Mm1u Report.
For two months, according to City
Health Physician Dr. O. G. Craig.
Rock Island has been entirely free of
typhoid fever, a fact which not only
apeak well for the health department
hat for the city water supply as well.
The report of the health physician is
based on Interviews from every physi
cian in the city. The report of the
city bacteriologist indicates the city
water supply is nearly perfect. Both
laboratory findings and clinical evi
dence are Important. A continuation
of this showing would Justify the de
partment of health In declaring the
city water safe, a condition that ex
1st in but few cities. Dr. Craig re
ports the following from the National
Health Record Just received:
The health commissioner of Rock
ford. III., report typhoid fever pres
ent in epidemic form with 118 cases
reported during the week of Feb. 17
and 170 cases during the week end
lng Feb. 24. Rockford has the ar
tesian well system, something that
was advocated in place of the filter
system In Rock Island and some of
the opponents of our local sand fil
tration system have been pointing to
Rockford as an Ideal system.
WAJfTS COMPLETE RECORD.
Dr. Craig la advocating the value
of a full report on every contagious
disease and as soon as possible. Fur
ther, he wants to see tb county rec
ords of births and deaths. An
official birth is the best proof of
descent, of right to Inherit, and age
for schools, for work, for voting and
for marriage. He cites an instance
where failure to report a birth has
kept a man from entering upon the
duties of the judiciary. There Is
sometime laxity in death certificates
and recently two cases wherein In
surance policies were contested show
the fallacy of neglect on that score.
The tabulated record for the
month of February has been sent by
Dr. Craig to Commissioner Archie
Hart. It was held hack because of
failure of some of the physicians to
make report for the month. It fol
