The state board ot health this after noon received the report of the eastern experts who ça me to Montana to ex amine and diagnose the cases of spot ted fever in Western Montana. The board also heard the usual report of Secretary Longe way upon the number of contagious diseases in the state, says the Helena Herald of Ang. 5. The governor, attorney general. Sec retary Longeway, Ihr. Treacy and Dr. Belcher of Townsend were the mem bers of the board present. Secretary Longeway laid before the board the report of the two experts who examin ed the spotted fever cases. The specialists hired by the state board to study the disease were Dr. Louis B. Wilson, first assistant bac teriologist of the Minnesota state board of health and senior demonstrator in pathology at the Minnesota state uni versity, and Dr. William Chowning, junior demonstrator in pathology at the Minnesota state university. The report of these two experts is in pam phlet form and contains eighteen pages. The substance of the report was published in the newspapers about the time it appeared in the Journal of the American Medical association last month. The conclusion of these ex perts is that the strange disease is probably given to human beings by the bite of some parasite, presumably a wood tick. "The bccurrence of 'spotted fever' in isolated cases in a region sharply limited on one side by a river," says the report, "would indicate the con veyance of the germ to man (if by any animal whatsoever) by a temporarily parasitic animal which travels slowly and not widely,and which is not carried far by the wind, etc. The tick answers this description. "All of the patiencs, eleven, coming under observation during this investi gation had been bitten by ticks. In three cases a history was given of a single severe tick bite two, three and fonr days, respectively, before the onset of the disease. "There is apparently no other in sect, arachnid or other biting creature within the infected locality, which would fulfill the conditions indicated in the above outline as does the tick. For instance, it may be noted that the mosquitoes probably do Hot appear un til a later date than that on which the earliest cases 'spotted fever' have de veloped, while they remain for several weeks after" the spotted fever ceases. They move about freely and are readi ly carried by the wind. Were they the infective agents, one mosquito would probably infect two or more persons in the same family, and the disease would not be limited by the river. Bedbugs and fleas are 'present throughout the year, and, from their persistent activity, would probably infect more than one individual in a family, were they the carriers of the disease. The extreme isolation of cases of spotted fever,' their occasional de velopment in localities removed many miles from the site of any previous case, and the long period existing be tween the death or convalescence of the last case of any one year before the development of the first case in the following year, wouljl point to the possibility of the red blood cells of some one of the lower warm-blooded animals being the normal habitat of the parasitic protozoon in that stage of its life cycle not passed within the body of some arachnid. Of the ani mals within the infected region, the common gray gopher would probably best fulfill the conditions of such a parasitism. The writers are at present attempt ing to obtain data which shall confirm or demolish the above hypotheses." Dr. Chowing, who is in the city, ap' peared before the board and enlarged upon the report. The report seemed satisfactory to board and the cost of the investigation, $1,650 was approved. Of this amount $1,400 was paid to the experts. Secretary Longeway reported to the board the number of contagious dis sease cases reported to him between Feb. 4 and Aug. 4, as follows: Small pox, 490; measles, 124; scarlet fever, 213; diptheria, 26; typhoid fever, 7, The cases of chicken pox and whoop ing cough have not been reported with any. degree of reliability. Dr. Longeway reported on the steps that were taken to fight the contagi ous diseases during' the past two months, notably smallpox. 1 1 LOSING FLESH In summer can be prevented by taking Scott's Emulsion Its as beneficial In summer aa I In winter.
