The archipelago was periodically
swept by frightful epidemics of Asiatic
cholera, which was endemic in certain
swampy regions near Manila. The su
perstitious practices formerly employ

en way to simple, inexpensive and ef
fective hygienic measures, with the
following results: In 1902 cholera caus
ed 80,.032 deaths: in 1903. 28.745: in
1908. 1..811: in 1909. 7.30(: in 1910.

the archipelago. At a cost of approxi

and equipped the great Philippine Gen

complete institutions of its kind in the
world. It treats some 8.000 patients
yearly. Two hundred and twenty of
its 300 beds are free. At its free clin
ic some 80,000 patients annually find
relief. A few years ago t was almost
unknown for a Filipino voluntarily to
go to a hospital.
We have established at Manila an
up to date contagious disease hospital
and a hospital for the insane.
Little by little hospital work is be
