CaTefully prepared statistics put
the number of deaths at 30,000 an.
fually resulting from cholera, dysen
tery, and typhoid fever, allured chief
ly by open privies [open sewers and
water closets are worse.] The Jour
nl of Applied Chemestry says of
"It is asking too much of an intel
ligent community that it should toler.
ate such nuisances much longer, and
we reiterate what we have said be
fure, that nothing but ignor'anoo
btuads in thQ way of the universal in
troduction of the dry-earth system.
We last year gave the result of our
experience with the earth closet., and
this year can add the accumulation
of another summer's trial. Wo pre.
pared three barrels of sifted and semi
dried earth for our supply for a fami
ly of eight persons, and this material,
with a barrel of hard-coal ashes, mak.
ing four barrels in all, was found to
be suffiient for four months. The
greater part of it passod through the
closet five times, and when stored
away in the barn this autumn was
not so disagreeable in odor as many
sam ples of guano."
The same paper argues that as soon
as earth closets become generally
known and introduced, and the value
of the material becomes known, it
stands to reason that companies will
be organized who will furnish all the
dry earth and empty the scuttles
without any charge to the family,and
eventually they will pay for the privi
lege. This is certainly an important
