Questions of Health and
Disease Are Discussed at
Congress of Hygiene and
Washington, Sept. 24.—Dr. Caroline
G. Hedger of Chicago, at the Fif
teenth International Congress of Hy
giene and Demography today spoke on
"the school children of the stock yards
"It is a gray neighborhood—the Chi
cago stock yards," said Dr. Hedger,
She presented the substance of an In
vestigation carried on under the direc
tion of the board of the University of
Chicago, and showing that almost 50
per cent of the children of the stock
yards district showed material retard
ation In the two schools in the dis
trict from which the 200 pupils were
"In the region in which they live,"
she said, "the smoke comes down In
clouds and w ith it comes the smell of
the fertilizer plants. This is not con
ducive to deep breathing or sound
sleep, and the children Impress one as
lacking oxygen, round-shouldered,
thin and rather pale. But the pliysl- j
cal findings, while alarming while|ing;
viewing the group as a whole, are dis- j
tributed in such a way as to make one
to suspect that all other causes have
more connection with the school re
Dr. Hedger presented statistics to
show that children were bad physical
ly in almost the direct proportion as
they received insufficient food, had
little room to live, were forced to sleep
in crowded beds, and had the reflected
r*orry from taxes and mortgages

she said. "If the child grows inactive,
discontented, becomes idle and a crim
inal. is the child to blame?" the speak
er asked, "or is the smug citizen who
lives on the fat returns of stocks,
whose money is made by the sweat and
blood and depravation « »f the industrial
neighborhoods like this?"
Danger of Fatigue.
With the assertion that "Fatigue
was a danger of occupation as truly as
any of the industrial poisons and must
be recognized as such if it is to be
combatted." Miss Josephine Goldmark
of the National Consumers* league,
New York City, addressed the congress
un "Tile Study of Fatigue and Its Ap
plication to Industrial Workers."
"The essential injury of overtime is
due to what has been graphical!)*
proved in the laboratory with the
erg »graph," said Miss
"because effort increases

more subsequent time for re

necessarily larking.
"The clerk who is kept in the gr<
department store until 11, 12 or
o'clock at night during one or t
frenzied weeks before Christmas, the
girl who works at fever heat stitching
women's waists in January for the
spring trade is not relieved of the ne
cessity of reporting for work the next
morning. She comes to w ork un rested
and with each day of overtime accu
mulated fatigue necessarily grows.
"It is precisely here that the aid of
science is so urgently needed and has
hitherto boon almost wholly lacking."
Dental Hygiene.
C. Adolphus Knopf, speaking on the
topic "Dental Hygiene for th«' Pupils
of Publie Schools." declared bad and
decayed teeth were a disease of the
mass«?s as much as tuberculosis, and as
such must be combatted particularly
in children of school age.

per cent of all the children

tuberculous, and calling atten
du to the last report of the commis
sioner of education that there were
CO,000,000 children attending public
Schools in the country. Dr. Kr.opf Ae
r la red there must be at least 600.000
tubeivulous children in urgent need
of open air Instruction. He quoted an
estimate that the average life of the
50.000 children who die annually from
tuberculosis in the United States was
about 7 1 ? years. Figuring the cost to
the parents ami community at only
1250.000 per annum, he said the finan
cial loss thus represented was $75,
000,000 and children have died before
they have been able to give any re
turn to their parents or the commu
Um of Comprossod Air.
T. Kennard Thomson, vice president
of the American Society of Mechanical
Engineers of New York, advanced the
conclusion that many cases of what
is called Caisson disease were due not
so much to work in compressed air as
they were to work in foul atmospheres.
Mr. Thomson said that foul atmos
phere, even at a very low pressure,
was often more dangerous to men than
much higher pressure where the air
was not contaminated. To support
his contention he cited a number of
cases in the work for the Lenox ave
nue bridge in the Harlem river tun
nel, New' York City. Considerable
trouble was caused by men complain
ing of the "bends" when passing
through the foul mud in the bottom of
the river.
Mr. Thomson directed attention
what he termed "The criminal folly of
depositing sewerage In the Harlem
river/* He declared that several tests
have provided that the tides did not
carry away all the sewerage emptied
into the Harlem, the Hudson and the
East rivers, because any excavation
will disclose a black putrid mud of
very offensive smell on the bottoms of
the rivers. He called attention
what he termed the "Great risk New
r»rk is run-*- -** an epidemic
through having the mud In rivers and
bays In euch condition. "It would even
be dangerous to pump the water to
put out Ores," he said, "as so much
foul mud would thus be scattered over
the city to dry and spread as dust."
Dr. Joseph Goldberger and Dr. John
F. Anderson, of the Hygiene Labora
tory, United States public health
service, told the delegates they had
traced typhus fever to the louse, as a
carrier, and that their Investigations
had disclosed. nearly SO cases of the
disease In New York as well as a
number In Chicago, Philadelphia, Bal
timore and Washington, although It
was thought that typhus had not vis
ited America for many years.
The disease, however, was found to
be In a mild form, but they said mild
forms of disease become malignant.
Typhus fever Is one of the six diseases
the United States considers so dan
gerous that special quarantine regula
tions have been Issued against it. The
malady usually visits those who live in
j ——— —
Norman Annett. Jerome; Henry
j Carpenter, Gooding; B. B. McCament,
crowded and insanitary habitations, |
and Is a poor man's disease.
Why the louse should be the only
insect that carries typhus they have
been unable to determine. One of the
insects which bites a patient during
the fever period will be able in about
four days afterwards to give the dis
ease to any unfortunate victim he may
chance to fasten upon. Experiments
have shown also that monkeys may
contract the disease through the bites
of lice.

The most important witness for the
day was Miss Edna Weaver, a sister
of the defendant. She testified that
she sent the box of candy after her
brother had fled for Oregon. That she
recalled it from the mails and exam

deadly drug. She was quite overcome
