DEATH TO THE "SLEEPER"!

railroad traina and vessels engaged in interstete commerce.
Railroad and steamship managers are to lie prodded into
ritaming and fumigating their car and boats at frequent intervals
to prevent the carrying of dirt and disease.
Why doein't the Public HoeJth Service go a step farther and
ooiticmn once and for all that scandalous old survival of hygiouis
1)ark Ages the Pullman sleeping car? Anything more preposter
ously out of data, unaanitary, indecept and barbarous than these
human cattle conveyances wherein a couple of dozen persons of both
exes are forced to undress, aleep and struggle into their clothes
again on rows of open shelves behind frowsy curtains, with aa many
iibic feet of air as rinnlated in the Black Hole of Calcutta, can
hardly be imagined.
The ordinary sleeping car of to-day, wil'h its excessive dust-laden
upholstery, its inconvenience and its promiscuity, is one of the an
lichroniems of our well-ordered, well-plumbed, well-ventilated, much
;e-bathroonied and sanitated national life. What mrthly excuse
ia there for the stupid, antiquated berth-sleeper except the reluc
tance of the railroads to give up a diabolical device which enables
thm bo pack away the greatest number of people with the smallest

A stateroom on a Pullman sleeper of the present type i beyond
be pocketbooks of most people. A berth in the uns)eal.'able at
mosphere of the ear is ttie only alternative. It is high time that
jmbiic opinion and government regulation forced the railroads to

two, or at moot four beds, each served by its ohu toilette compart
