Always Wishing.
To bo always -wishing for something
wo cannot get Is tho worst possible
way to spend time. All of us have
blessings which are enough to mako
us happy if only wo aro so wiso as to
enjoy them instead of fretting for
something more. Take tho pleasures
of today with a grateful heart, and
never waste time in hoping yoa will
have something better tomorrow.

The mind that Is cheerful in its pres
ent state will bo adverse to all soli
citudes to tho future, and will meet
tho bitter occurrences of Ufa with a
placid smile. Horace.

Poverty and tuberculosis tubercu
losis and poverty! These are the
essential facts which force themselves
to the attention of every investigator
who faces the problem of that dis
ease. The tenement house district of
Cincinnati yields a tuberculosis mor
bidity just three times as great as the
areas whero better housing prevails.
In 197 families in which tuberculosis
existed the average monthly income
for a family of four was approximate
ly $57. After paying the prorata share
for food and rent, a balance of $5.13
remained for each individual to meet
all other expenses. Such a low sub
sistence level works like black magic
in the spread of tuberculosis. More
over, ana tins is a point over wnicn
the public should ponder, the home
of the average wage earner was fojund
to be far less sanitary than the aver-
m T. .
age factory anu worKsnop. in re
gard to all the factories which make
for healthful living, ventilation, suf
ficient light, proper temperature, and
freedom from over-crowding, he
score was in favor of the factory in
nearly every instance.
The city of Cincinnati realized that
icr tuberculosis ueain rate wasou
per cent, above the average and that
it had failed to manifest a tendency to
decline. Sho felt no qualms in ma
ing this admission. Rather, she de
termined that she would learn why,
with an efficient health department
and favorable climatic influences, she
was suffering from twice the mortal
ity from that disease as her neighbor,
Pittsburgh. Accordingly the United
States Public Health service was re
quested to make a thorough study of
the situation and submit a report.
To show that something more than
mere academic interest obtained, 10,
932 workers in 154 factories of the
city voluntarily submitted to a physi
cal examination.
Tho conclusions reached, point di
rectly to the close connection be
tween poverty and tuberculosis. Tho
great factor underlying tho entiro
problem was seemingly tliat of eco
nomic conditions. One sixth of all
tuberculosis cases came from cheap
lodging houses. Alcoholism was a
prominent cause, and often accele
rated the course of the disease. Oc-

cupational hazards and bad
conditions were apparently response
ble for about 20 nnr rent, nf Hia
cases, but in the majority of instances
these hazards were not necessarily
inherent in the occupation. Previ
ous tuberculosis in the family oc
curred in practically a third of all the
cases investigated. Dissipation, over
crowding, bad housing, and innate
lack of personal responsibility, were
also listed as causes.
An interesting feature of the re
port, and one which has not previ
ously been dwelt upon in studies of
this character, relates to the effect of
immigration and the rate of growth
of the population of a city upon tu
berculosis death rate. It is shown
that cities with a population composed
largely of racial stock having

that disease, while centers havincr

likewise subject to a high tubercu
losis rate. The evidence issubmitted
in a comparative table covering 'six
teen American cities. Almost with
out exception those with a high per
centage of Irish, Scandinavian and
German stock, and those in which the
negro population is relatively lame.
have a correspondingly high' mortali
ty, while those where tho Italian and
Jewish element is proportionately
great to have a low tuberculosis defth
rate. Similarly, such cities as Tin.
troit and Cleveland, with high rates
ot population increase, show a low
tuberculosis mortality, while Cincin
nati and Baltimore with a relatively
small population increaso have a high
tuberculosis rate. Doubtless the true
explanation of this discrepancy is that
advanced by tho authors, namely,
that whero tho population increase is
