How Much Typhoid
Does State Want?
Health Authorities Say Stim?
mer Scourge Will be in
Proportion to Care?
lessness.
Richmond, Yn.. .March 20.?
llasing its question on the
statement that Virginia will
have much or little typhoid this
summer as the people are care ,
lest or can I ions, the Si tt I e Hoard '
of Health m its lirst clean up
notice of the spring, issued to
day, makes i b o somewhat
startling inquiry, how much
typhoid does Virginia want in
I ill 6.
"This quostion," the board
continues, "may s.n hypo?
thetical hut within certain lim?
its, it is practicable for the
State lo determine its typhoid
rate. The means of preventing
this disease and the channels
by which it is spread are so
Well-known that by the expun
diture of reasouablu money and
energy, ihe typhoid appearing
in a given yoiir may bo decreas?
ed to a negligible factor.
"Seven years ago, from Octo
her, IVOS, to September, 1900,
there were 14.U96 L'Slilhbted
eases of typhoid fever in Vir
ginia, primarily because the
people oi the State were unfa?
miliar with the simple methods
by which the disease could be
controlled. In the same twelve,
mouths of I'.iI:t-!l there were
but 7,-l3o estimated cases of ty?
phoid, or but little more than
half as many as six years bo
fore. The reason was the appli?
cation by the people of proven
use moasuri s
"There is uo reason ?vhy
seven years from now",-Or ill
nvqn a shorter time, the ty?
phoid rate will not have declin?
ed as much again m proportion,
provided the people are willing
to exert themselves and tu
spend m little money in project
ing themselves against it.
"Typhoid fever Is primarily a
quostion of sewago dinposu).
The genus that cause the dis
east, in any person come in ev
cry instance from 'be body of
someone who has or has bad
typhoid.
"in this climate, the carriage
of typhoid Is rendered easy by
tbo bleeding of Hies, which
make tlu-ir appearance early
and remain until the late aut?
umn. It in necessary, therefore,
to begin precautionary meas?
ures in March.
??The Virginia farmer or resi?
dent of a small town who wish?
es to protect Iii? family from
typhoid can usually do so by
providing against the scattering
of tilth by erecting and using a
sanitary outhouse. This will
keep the tilth from. Hies, vvii!
protect the woll or spring, in
large measure at least, and will
in most instances solve the ty?
phoid problem so far as its
spread from that particular
farm or bouse is concerned."
Tbe Hoard of Health, in an?
ticipation of tbe general clean
up movement for the prevention
of typhoid is preparing its liter?
ature and making in* arrange?
ments for the investigation of
outbreaks. Detailed announce?
ments of its plans tire shortly
expected.

the ideas of every reader. Most i
of us have beeil taught to lie j

it was no more to be feared
than a bud cold- Some of us
may remember parents who
even expressed the hope thill
their children would "have
