I Anti-Tuberculosis Organization to Carry on General Health Campaign. i On the eve of the opening of the Christmas Seal Campaign an epoch making announcement has just been made by the Wisconsin Anti-Tubercu losis association to the effect that from now on the fight against other con tagious diseases, as well as tuberculo sis, will be carried on by that organiza tion. This step is an advance move in doing general health work and while it will do away with needless duplication there will be no let up in the fight against tuberculosis. The workers in the tuberculosis organization have the plans and the effective means of opera tion so mapped out that they are able to do twice as much now as formerly. In this they are being aided by the counties in establishing the county san itariums to relieve the congestion in the state institution at Wales and to handle the cases that are not allowed at the state institution. Dane county has appointed a commit tee that has been at work during the summer seeking a desirable site and looking up the plans for a county sani tarium. Rock county will consider the matter at the meeting of the county board this month and it is to be hoped that the members of the board will see the. earnest need of such an institution in this county and provide a means for obtaining one. During the past eighteen months there have been eighty-nine deaths in Rock county from tuberculosis, with seventeen applications to the Wales in stitution, and one now on the waiting list there. There are four hundred and ninety-six sufferers from the disease in Rock county. Walworth county had twenty-seven deaths in the same time and Dane county had ninety-one, with thirty-nine on the list seeking admis sion to Wales. The question of handl ing the cases best in the county insti tutions, rather than in the one state sanitarium, should need no great de bating The greater care possible and the smaller cost of travel and general expense all stand in favor of the county sanitarium. To show the scope of the work car ried on by the Anti-Tuberculosis Asso ciation and the use of which the funds raised by the Christmas Seal sale are put we append herewith a report of the work of the Edgerton branch of the society during the past year. A visit ing nurse was hired to examine the scholars of the public and parochial schools and the following figures tell of the conditions that were f^jandi Number of scholars examined 429 Scholars having no defects. 140 Cases cured by nurse. • • 47 Home treatment made. ° House Calls made by nurse 43 Scalp defects found 22 Eye defects > * 94 Ear defects 4i Defective teeth 166 Enlarged tonsils 4® Pharynx J* Adenoids a} Nasal deflection ~ Skin afflictions 3 Anemic children 28 The total money raised by the stamp sale and given the society through gen erous individuals was $132.95. Of this sum $65.00 went for nurse hire, $12.00 for supplies for her work, and $18.97 was expended for aid to a patient now at Wales. The total expenditures for the year were $95.97, leaving a balance in the treasury of $36.98. It is hoped to raise sufficient funds this year through the seal sale to continue the visiting nurse work and even go farth er in the task before the organization. So when the little Christmas seals go on sale December Ist, remember the work the fund thus received does and you will buy readily. Obituary. MRS. JAMES MURPHY.
