During tlu? lii ??t year of its rrorsan

"bad*' years without any apparent re?

full explanation of the case.
''Undoubtedly,*' said a well known

reduced mortality. Were this great

case, the mortality might be still fur?
ther reduced to an absolute minimum.
But the increase in the number of
caeea is probably due to a number of
factors. ? )nr people have less fear
of diphtheria and conaequently tak??
;?ss precautions. In aerdithin. th?*
habit of giving immunizing doses of
antitoxin to all expooed children cer?
tainly prevents many cases, but prob?
ably gives us a number of carriers
