La Grippe is about as old as Solomon's
Temple ia a recent claim. It was known
first in the thirteenth century. It visited
Europe in 1230, 1311, 1323. 1482, 1557
and 1675. From 1728 to 1735 it
traversed the globe. In 1775 it appeared
in a remarkable form in Europe and
America. Tbe disease appeared also in
1800 and 1830; in a less general form it
appeared in 1817, 18G0 and 1870. Tbe

5. Is there reason to believe that the
disease may be caused by germs, pto

of time, is isolation of persons nfT acted
or infected with dipbthela, regarded
essential aa a preventive metsure?
7. What substances and methods of
disinfection are regarded reliable?
8. Can disinfection be dt pended upon
either to take the pUce or shorten tbe
duration of isolation or quarantine?
0. Should hospitals and stations be
provided for isolation, disinfection, and
treatment of casea of diihtheria, and
for tbe protection of tbe fublic health?
10. What climatic limitations are

Dr. A. W. Cantwell, of Davenport,
was a delegate to the American Health
association meetiDg, and he was appoin
ted a member of a committee of five,
whose special duty was t be tbe pre
paration of a statement of tbe existing
knowledge of tbe cause and prevention
of diphtheria, the report to be submitted
to the association at its next meeting at
Charlestown. South Carolina. In
preparing these questions tbe com
mittee recognize the fact that many
of them have already been satis
factorily answered, but thtse answers
should be fully broucbt out if we are to
have a full and complete array ot all the
knowledge in the matter. O" course the
committee does not mean to confine in
vestigation simply to these tleven ques
tions, but will welcome any rew ideas or
facts whatsoever. These questions will
be disseminated among tbe piysicians of
the country and all of them will be in
vited and warmly urged to add their mites
as for instance by the course adopted by
the Iowa and Illinois society.
