A warning agailst the use of shaving brushes made from horse hair was issued today by Dr. Wil liam C. Fowler, District health of Acer, in a letter seat to department and sporting stores and wholesale and retail druggists throughout the city. DANGER FROM ANTERAX. Dr. Fowler calls attention to a re cent statement of the Surgeon General of the United States Public Health Service in which he declares there Is danger from anthrax through the use of such types of brushes. Anthrax. Dr. Fowler points out. is found, largely among c atle, is very codtaglous and Is a grave disease when it attacks a human being. His letter follows: "The Health Department Is in rt ecipt of a communication from the Surgeon General of the United State* Public Health Service, dated Octobea 1. 1120, calling attention to the dan ger from anthrax through the use of shaving brushes made from horst hair and warns persons against buy ing and using such brushes. It le understood that many of this type 01 shaving brush are in the trade chan nfs at the present time, some o which are presumably infected. EASILY COMMUNICATED. "it should be clearly understood that anthrax is a very grave disease in man and is readly communicated through the use of infected brushes, the infection generally entering the body through some abrasion of the skin. In spite of the efforts of the United States Public Health Service to prevent the spread of anthrax in the manner indicated, the cases con tinue to occur. "While no case has developed in the District of Columbia up to the present time, the Health Department, how ever, believes that it should add its word of warning to that already is sued by the Public Health Service.". Anthrax is a disease which causes skin eruptions and sometimes results in death. those who know IMOUS iBAG FEE p By Us rocery .Co. RATINTALS O * t -e~ieo Wim Rat.. for Aprtm.nts at the Hmnitage.
