Gentlemen—I beg to submit (be
following oarative report showing
my activity as County Health Of*
ficer for the mouth of November.
First, I want to say that the
general health of the county is
good. There are eleven pbysicans
in the county, oioe white and two
colored, all of whom bave sent me
promptly their monthly reports,
showing the following reportable
diseases: Typhoid fever, one case;
malarial fever, one hundred and
twenty cases; measles, one case;
whooping cough, seven cases;
diphtheria, two cases; amoebic
dysentery, sixteen cases; pellagra,
three cases; caocer, four cases;
tuberculosis, three cases; pneu
monia, four cases.
The vital statistic report for the
five registration districts shows
births twenty one, deaths eleven.
District i.— Dr. J. V. May,
Registrar, oirtbs 4, deaths 3.
District a—Dr. N. A. Guice,

The sanitary condition of the
county is 'fair', each month show*
ing some improvement. All of
tha places in the ceunty where
foodstufia are bandied for sale are
more or less effectively screened.
The butchersbops and slaughter
houses are gradually being brought
up to the requirements of the State
Board of Health. The hotels and

ries of the county are making an

The county cour» house and jail,

ommend to your honorable body
the following changes: First, that
the cell which is now painted black
be painted white, and second, that
the quilts now in uie be replaced
by blankets (Paragraphs a and 4
for jails, Rules and Regularions of

I also recommend that you re
quest the county attorney to look
into the question of the "bone
yard" or dumping ground,
mile west of Port Gibson, where
dead animals are hauled and left
to be eaten by dogs and buzzards.
