IN THREE GENERATIONS
SARANAC LAKE, N. V., Feb. 24.
--"Can consumption be cured?" Thousands
ask the question. And on the answer ex
perts differ. Some say It can. Others
declare it can be arrested 95 times out
of 100, and cured in 50 per cent of the
cases. All agree on one point:
IT CAN BE PREVENTED.
As far as the cure goes, the task is sim
ple enough with the open-air treatment in
incipient cases. ])r. Trudeau and all other
experts divide patients into three classes.
Incipients, advanced cases and far ad

been absent for at least three months.
The disease is said to be arrested when the
cough, expectoration and bacilli are pres
ent but all constitutional disturbance has
disappeared for several months. In all
cases, the experts say: ''Cure.sometimes,
relieve often, comfort always." The aver
age stay of a patient here is eight months.
So firm are the doctors in their faith in
the open air treatment that they believe
tuberculosis can be made an extinct or at
least a rare disease in three generations.
Is tuberculosis really itf prevalent and
fatal? Yes, the statistics of (he United
States government show that 101,000 people
die annually in this country from it.
Is tuberculosis communicable—<;ontag
•ious? Yes—and for that viiry reason, also
PREVENTABLE. The modes of com
munication are well known, controllable
and not mysterious. Pasteur, the famous
French doctor, said: "It is in the power
of man to cause all parasitic maladies to
disappear from the world." Dr. Trudeau
believes that in a hundred years a case
of consumption will or should be the result
of criminal carelessness. The mortality in
New York alone was reduced 18 per cent
To begin with, the old theory of heredity
has been exploded. One CANNOT IJf-
HKRIT consumption. One can inherit a
predisposition to it—a weak constitution.
The cures are effected under the segre
gated care and simple scientific treatment
and discipline, of appropriately situated,
equipped and managed sanilaria. Dr.
Trudeau believes that every state should
have these sanitaria for the care of the
working men and women. Consumption
is a condition with which only public regu
lation can deal adequately. This is not
the task of philanthropy, it is the duty
of the commonwealth, of the municipality.
AS OiEN PAVILION FOR THE USE OF PATIENT!.
"The most important step," announced
the congreHs of experts in session at Haiti
more recently, "is to prevent the spread
of the disease. To begin with, every case
should be reported by the attending phypi
eian. Next, the state or city should dis
tribute printed information, locate special
hospitals for the incurables to prevent the
spread of the germg, and enact lawn for
the protection of the public."

danger. Germany has 74 big state sanitaria
