But what are we going to do with the boy? We cannot lock him up and the state board of health regulations as to leprosy provides for handling the case as we are doing. If he were isolated in some place pro vision would have to be made fpr taking care of him., I sent inspec tors to the house only a few days ago notifying the parent's to be more strict in isolating their son. . "There is no especial danger at this stage of the boy's disease, as I un derstand he has not yet got any abra sions, although his hands and fore head are characteristic of the dis ease. The disease is communicable from coming in contact with the se cretions of the infected persons. Al though the boy is one of a large fam ily he is the only one having the dis ease, with which I understand his As a xsatetr of fact he continued, "the case has never been fully confirmed as leprosy. When I last saw the boy, several months ago, there were no atrasions.' Dr. Shisler plans to have a slide made of postules which he will secure if possible and have an analysis made by Dr. SL S.

Florida Getting Good Deal of Unde " sirable Publicity From Political " Activity. , JACKSONVILLE, Oct 23 Before he left for Jacksonville last night Joe Earmian, president of the State Board of Health said: The people of Flor ida are against a leaper colony in their state, as evidenced by the pro tests I have received from every part of Florida, and as president .ef the state board of health I intend to use every influence at my command to keep a leprosarium out of this state. Mr. Earman was accompanied by Dr. Ralph N. Greene, state health officer. The two will join Gov. Sid ney J. Catta in Washington, the gov ernor having gone on to the capital from points in Alabama. Continuing his analysis of the sen timent through the state regarding the .leprosarium, Mr. Earoman de clared that Florida as a united whole is opposed to the colony and that the protests he has received are repre sentative of every section. "The protests against the colony are as strenuous frpm Miami as they are from Cedar Key and are unani mous in the expression that the com mercial interests of Florida would be seriously crippled." The state board of health officials had made arrangements to go to Washington to fight the proposition two weeks ago, but received wires from the Florida representatives sta ting the trip was unnecessary, as the United States public health service would not establish the colony in Florida against the will of the people. However, these assurances were off the fact that J. K. Hoskins, sociate sanitary engineer of the United States public health service, was sent to Cedar Keys to make a topographical survey of the site un der consideration. Dr. Greene also received a letter from Surgeon Gener al Blue that the Florida site was the only one yet found that was consid ered available. : "r IBefore leaving last night, Mr. Tar- man viewed the situata optimisti- cany ana stacea ne aia not oeueve uic United States public health service would force the colony on the state, when he had fully acquainted Sur geon General Blue with the vigorous character of the opposition to it.

One leper at large in the city of Miami, 11 m Key Whit and 16 at large in the' state, led members of the Womans' club yesterday to ad' vocate the gathering of these people into a colony somewhere so why not at Cedar Key on the west coast. The matter was introduced before the club by Mra. J. N. Harper who undertook to prove to the club that leprosy is not highly contagious and that a leper hospital would be the best manner of caring for afflicted persona. The discussion was imme diately taken up by other club wo men, those who spoke apparently in favor of the establishment of a hos pital for their care. Mrs. F. B. Stoneman pointed out tliat there are 16 .lepers at large "in the state and that they are eating' at public restaurants and sleeping in beds a hotels, endangering anyone who comes in contact with them. Mrs. T. C. Speyers in urging the establish ment of a hospital where these pa tients might- be segregated declared that there is no danger to others on the keys. Mrs. E. R. Tuttle report ed 11 cases of leprosy in Key West and asked: "Do you ladies know that there is one case in Miami?" Mrs. Phillip Clarkson characterized the opposition springing up in Flor ida as hysterical reminding the mem bers that the public ' tolerates com plaisantly other diseases, the so-called social diseases, which are much worse." Another speaker even de clared that Cedar Key residents aae supporting the ides of the establish ment of the colony at that place.
