! ratory, but some of them can not write
: an ordinary letter or tell the general
I facts of history correctly.
The address was straight to the
j point, chaste in expression required
only ten minutes In delivery.
Dr. Woods Hutchinson.
One of the features of the morning
session was the address of Dr. Woods
Hutchinson of New York, the guest
of the association, on preventive
medicine. Dr. Hutchinson Is distin
guished for his writings and addresses
on this subject which he presents In
popular manner adapted to the lay
man's understanding. It was a par
ticularly clever little speech of ten
minutes In which the doctor, a man
of 40, of easy and flowing address,
entertained as well as instructed the
assemblage. He cited with emphasis
the record of Gen. Lord Kltehener's
campaign again the Mahdi In which
the mortality from disease was re
duced to an unprecedontedly low fi
gure dprd^rins that similar rcnulta
could be and should be attained In
civic life. "The establishment of a
national department of health, its
head to be a member of the president's
cabinet, as advocated in the magnifi
cent speech of Senator Owen of Okla
homa," said Dr. Hutchinson, "is con
summation that should he real, ed in
the United States."
Dr. L. H. Morse of 1 leudersonville.
N. CM one of the invited speakers,
followed Dr. Hutchinson with an ef
fective paper on "Earlier Diagnosis of
Pulmornary Consumption." Two of its
effective points were the deprecation
of false modesty on the part of pa
tients and caution as to the infection
of colored servants. The speaker laid
marked stress on the latter, saying
that although the danger from this
latter source of infection was fairly
well known in the South, it could not
be too constantly stressed. "In every
case where a child's nurse has a
cough of any duration or other sus
picious circumstances exist investiga
tion should follow," he said.
The Destroying Worm.
"Hookworm Disease in the Negro."
was the theme of a striking paper by
Dr. W. .1. Hurdell of Logoff, who said,
among other things, tlrnt out of 200
negroes living In an area of square
miles examined by himself. ('?.?"> per cent,
had symptoms of the disease. He en
larged on the negro as the host and
carrier of the infection, and gave as
j his conclusion that fi"> per cent, of the
negroes In the sand hill regions of this
State have the disease, and said that
the infected negroes were a menace as
creating conditions that prepared the
way for tuberculosis infection.
Opened to general discussion. Dr.
William Weston spoke briefly, endors
ing in a general way Dr. Bui'dell's
Dr. Edward T. Parker followed with
a paper on "First Aid to Injured Byes,,
I of great practical suggestiveness to
j the profession. This paper was neces
sarily more technical than most of the
papers. Dr. Jervey of Greenville
spoke pertinently on some of the
phases of cr. Parker's paper, as diu
Dr. Kollock of Charleston and Dr.
Carpenter of Greenville.
Dr. Charles W. Kollock next read a
! paper on "Trontment of Diseased
Tonsils." This paper evoked an In
teresting discussion participated in
by Drs. Parker, Carpenter and S. C.
Baker of Sumter.
Dr. Hoheit S. Cathcart read a par
ticularly interesting paper on "Un
developed Lower .law." The paper
treated especially of a case in Dr.
Drs. Dunn and Lclglb
Dr. Charles Hunter Dunn, of Dos
ton, who was on the programme lo .\d
dress the convention on the subject of
"The Serum Treatment of Epidemic
Cerebro Spinal Meningitis." arrived in
the afternoon and was the first to
: peak at the after dinner session. Dr.
Southgate Leigh, of Norfolk. Vn.
j also arrived at 2 o'clock ami follow
ed Dr. Dunn with quite an Interesting
paper, which had for Its subject, "The
Present Status of Cancer Education."
Drs. Dunn and Leigh as visitors and
Contributors to the interest of the
scientific sessions were heartily thank
for their addresses.
"A plea for Medical Inspection of
School Children in South Carolina."
was tht> title of a paper, read by Dr.
Edgar A. Ilines. of Seneca, in which
was embraced a very full report of the
work being done at Seneca along this
line. Dr. W. P. Porcher, of Charles
ton, spoke briefly to this paper.
Dr. nines' paper has stirred perhaps
greater general interests than any
other of the meeting. Ho reviewed the
history of school medical inspection
throughout the world, allowing thai ii
is a hackward movement In the South
ern States, pointed out the value and
necessity for it. and related the his
tory of the Inspection in Seneca, where
a hoard of doctors and dentists have
for a year or two carried on the work.
This later report gave striking facts
and figures, among others that of 200
Children between the sixtff and tenth
grades of the Seneca schools. 153 had
a total of 600 defective teeth. Sta
tistics of various otiior diseases wero
given. Dr. lllnes' hope is that medical
school inspection may interest the
special education board lately provid
ed by the legislature and finally re
sult in legislation on the subject.
On Dr. Weston's motion the address
was referred to the committee on log. j
Islatlon, with instrutlons to promote
legislation on the subject.
Next came Dr. Legrand Guerry, of
Columbia, who presented an excellent
paper on "Some of the Things the
Profession Should Know About Can
cer." Dr. J. Shelton Horsley., of Rich
mond, one of the prominent guests
of the convention addressing himself
to the subject presented by Dr. Guerry,
spoke of the Cancer cure from the
standpoint of a surgeon.
The association then adjourned to
the opera house to hear Dr. Kol lock's
paper on "What Has Been Done to
Prevent Blindness." and Dr. A. 11.
Knowlton on "Gastric and Duodenal
fleers." both of which were illustrated
with lantern slides.

Wednesday evening the convention
members and visitors attended a lec
ture given for their entertainment at

Jos. G. Camp, his subject being "Truth
and Shams." Mr. Camp was intro
duced by the Hon. C. C. Feathorstone.

Dr. AI leu Jervey's paper on the re
cent epidemic of beri berl among con
victs in Charleston received close at
tention After describing the symp
toms of the disease, Dr. Jervoy pre
sented evidence to prove that the dis
