The local option law passed by the Iglslatuie of 190; made It the duty of the license commissioners to collect and have an alyzed at the laboratory specimens of liquor from the licensees. The session of l$CA added the pure food law and all the work Implied therein, and tho last legis lature has made It obligatory for all wholesale dealers supplying Vermont re tail liquor Fellers to have their products examined nt the State laboratory. The wame IegisIattire gave to the State pathologist, tho duty of performing tho nutopsies In cases of suspicious death. Thus at the present time, the work of the laboratory comprises tho examination of cultures from suspected dlptherla cases. blood from suspected typhoid ami malaria casus, sputum nnd other excretions for evidence of tuberculosis, and In short, specimens from any suspected Infectious or contagious disease, water for Its pur ity, milk and all other foad products, liquor from license commissioners and from wholesalers desiring licenses and any sort of material from criminal cases in which a chemical, microscopical or pathological examination Is desired by the prosecuting oltlecr. In addition to this n laboratory offloinl performs thp autopsies In all the criminal cases requiring such an examination. Furthermore In any such case coming to court, tho pathologist and chemist making the examination, aro at the services of the State as witnesses. All of these lines of work are of great valuo to the people of the State and their regulation tn a central laboratory was a good business measure. It may be safely asserted that In no other Stnte In the Fnlted States Is such an economical and efficient system In operation. Certainly no other l.ilioratnry Is doing the variety of work that ours Is. All of these new departments have added very materially to the work of the Institution and these additions, wo regret tn say, have been out of proportion tn the Increase In the ap propriation for running exenses. In 19VI $12,000 was estimated as being necessary to meet the expenses of the work then being done. The legislature of that year mado an annual aimroprlatlon of $10,000, nt the same time adding the me.llco-legal work which nccccslated the employment of another chemist. Since then nn additional $.',.'iOil his been made available tn carry Into effect the pro. visions of tho pure food law. Thus the original has been Increased 6.1 per cent. ..while tho amnut of work done has been multiplied during the same time over SOT per rent, With the annual appropriation of $12,!0i the runnliu exepses of the Institution In cluding Dm salaries of the laboratory staff (seven numbers) the supplies, the expense of the quarterly bulletin, the school for health officers, tlio traveling expenses of the food Inspector and the purchase price of the foods examined must bo paid. What tho liiptltutlon needs now mora than nnythlng else Is a building. The rooms which are now occupied, while they have served our purposes In the past, are being outgrown, They novcr were PROBLEMS Ideal for the purposes of a laboratory. Such a building should be well supplied with light, should be freo from all tend ency to settle and protected nn far as possible from street Jarring. None of these particulars are satlstled by the present location. The amount pnld for rent, while reasonable would go n long way toward paying the Interest on ihe Investment for a building embodying all these qualities, It may never wm nvalt able to nsk for such an appropriation, however. This state Is small, nnd wo realize that It hn denlt generously with us In the past, yet this has been a good Investment for the State nnd It can afford to continues the IlWal treatment Whether or not It may he deemed wise to to speak for the further aid, I wish you all to know what we need nnd nt some future day when It seems proper to nk for such a building, we trust thnt you will all lc dispose,) to lend you old. This Institution Is only ft part of the great sanitary system of the State of which you are nnd always will be the most essential elment, but It Is, 1 think you will nil agree, nn Important part. Tho tremendous significance of prevent ive medicine Is being appreciated more every Uy. Intelpeat people nil over the wmld are coming to see that n state can use Its resources In no more profit able manner than In the protection of the lives and Imalth of Its citizens. In this ciuse, It should always be generous. To you, sanitary officials of the State, Is given a responsibility which there can bo nn higher. You should, and surely win, neartuy support nnythlng which can aid you nnd mnke your responsibility a little lighter and your service more em-lent. Dr. Stone's paper wns followed by two very Interesting discussions of the Inborntory topic. The first discussion wns opened by Attorney.(!pnernl C. f. Fltts of Hrattleboro. who gave somo statistics on the saving to the State of Vermont through the work done at th." laboratory In the pnst yenr. His esil- fnfes wero based on the cost of the work performed ns compared wl'h what It would have heen without the help of the laboratory, when It would have been neeessnry to go out of the Stnte to get expert chemists. Hp cited severnl rases In the last year Involving chemical analysis, which, had It ben necessary to go out of the State, would hnve cost about $,000. Then again, he said. Its value ns an aid to Justice can not lv overestlmntPd, nnd the greatest results are gained by having a labor i tory nt hand to settle suspicious cases. He referred to recent cases that have been settled In this way, the great saving to the State It had been, nnd to the value of the Institution In prevent ing charges against people who might be Innocent of crime, hut were unfor tunate In being the victims of clrrum stanceo. py having the laboratory close nt hand the truth of suspicious cases can be learnerl more quickly and In most efficient manner from tho corps of expert chemists there. Chem ists' testimony In court cases Is accpt. ed as the truth without question, and this expert testimony is of the greatest value In getting at the truth of mat ters. A remarkable record made by the laboratory Is that at no tlm-i In tile past two years has a chemist's tes'l mony been questioned by either Judge or Jury, or ever found to be other than stated upon the witness stand. The establishing of the laboratory was a long step toward srlvlng people con fidence In the administration of the law. Dr. F. E. Clark of Burlington then took up the discussion of the labora tory from a physician's point of view, referring to the great value of the work as a help to physicians, ami touching on the work that Is being done now which was not thought of In tho past. It wns the center of educa- 1. he said, and physicians become better able to cope with difficulties be. cause of having come In contact with experts In the laboratory, where th'1 man who doesn't know can find out what he wants to know. In speaking pf the health officers, and their excel lent opportunity for using the latiora tory, Dr. Clark snld: "The man who has these facilities, the man who can learn, the man who ought to learn, the man who Is paid to learn and won t learn, should be put on the retired '1st " He then explained how to malto the best use of the laboratory bv getting acquainted with Its use. and learning its rules nnd regulations, and lastly to use It by sending specimens for an alysis In all cases which stood in doubt. The discussion of this topic occupied the remainder of the session, and adjourn ment was taken until 2 p. m. AFTERNOON SESSION. The nfternoon meeting was called to gether in the armory hall nt two o'clock. The most of the session wns given over to the matter of vital statistics In the fitate. The tlrst paper on the subject was by Creasy L. Wilbur, chief statistician of the bureau of the census, Washington, D. C, who confined his remarks chiefly to the Importance of a better system for re cording births and deaths. Nearly every State, he said, has laws requiring such records, but over a score of them have no perfect system of registration. It is tlmo, he continued, for a better system. The main point, he urged, was more care In making out of death notices and giving the cause of death. The subject was opened for discussion by 11. L. Stlllson of Bennington, who spoke along the same lines as those ad vanced by Mr. Wilbur, showing the Im portance of these statistics In legal mat ters, nnd that nothing should b left a chance. He called attention to sevenl recent cases wliere people hid trlel to 1 s tabllsh claims and failed because no rec ords could be found. Dr ". W. Howard of Shoreham followed Mr. Stlllson In tlv discussion nnd talked upon the same lines. after which the topic wns given over lo general discussion and questions. The last paper of the afternoon wns pre sented by R. A. Lawrence of Rutland will spoke on "The legal Side." showing Just where the health officer stand In respe.-t to tho law and wiiat his duties aro. He explained that they had the power to do anything that seemed necessary, nnd tint they should study the law and educate the community In which they lived lip to those laws. Mr. Liwreuce answcied many questions which have puzzled the officers In regard to Just what their duties were and explained several points In question In a most satisfactory way. TUBERCULOSIS PROBLEMS. I'. telling (iUeu lip to Society for Stud) of the IlNense, Tho evening session, which wn eriicluled for eight o'clock, was some what lite In starting, owing to the delav In arrival of the principal i-peakcrs of the evening, Dr. E. O. Otis of Boston nnd Dr. W. N. Bryant of Ludlow, On their nrilval, Dr. Otis opened the meet ing with the reading of a paper on "Clinical Diagnosis of Incipient Tuber culosis," dealing with the Importance of delecting the disease In Its early stages, and so bolng a-blis to help ttio patient. Years ago ho na!d tho disease wns con hldored Incumblo tiocauwi tho symptoms werti discovered too late, It has been demonstrated however In the prcjent day that 8 of the iirly casos can lie cured, If tho symptom are noticed In time Dr. Otis presented charts s-howlng the symptoms to ! looked for In the early Ftages, and the lx-st methods of detecting the disease In the patients, explaining In detail the manner of arriving at a d)rct conclusion In the diagnosis of the cise His remark wore explicit, and of a nature to be fully undrrstond by h I'stencrs, who followed the paper w 1 great Interest. Following lr. Otis, n short address was made by Dr. W. N. Bryant, president -if the Vermont Society for the Study nnl Prevention of Tuberculosis, on the great Importance of this subjret to physician? He then Introduced Dr. C. w Perk, -who read a paper on "The Importan e of an Early Diagnosis of Tuljorculos's," bring ing out points along the ynme line on which Dr. Otis had spoken. Among ti a othrr points of Dr. Pecks's paper he slit, ed that tuberculosis was n germ dlseaso, and cannot be transmitted from one gen eration to another. The Fe.sslon was then given over o iun discussion of the subject with quest 11ns from the members present, nnd a friendly argument relative to points which had been brought up. Thepe questions were answere , by Dr. Otis In closing t ic f)ls. cusslon. Owing to the lateness of the hour l wn decided to postpone the regu'ar n--)a, meeting of the Vermont Foc.tv for 1 Study and lYeventlon of Tn re dr s , until this morning, when thp reguMr ses sions of the society will be taker, up S VLRWOHT NOTES I a b iiiiiiimiiiiiiMiapiRiiiii Edward N Merrlam.
