Wood and Circuit Court Judge Silas Woodson, of St Joseph, which resulted in tho Attornoy General ruling that only boys who havo been regularly convicted of a folony nnd mis demeanor can bo admitted to tho State Roform School at Boonvlllo. Judga Woodson hold this, and tho ruling ot Tho first point mado is that tho public health Interests ot tho State aro at a disadvantage bocauso neither branch of tho Stato Legislature has a commlttoo on sanitary affairs. It Is doomed doslr ablo to havo such committees for tho re ception and consideration of sanitary measures. Tho neglect of physicians to supply complete records of births and deaths Is sorlously felt Tho law directs that this bo dono, under penalty of S10 for each caso neglected. This neglect is especial ly to bo regretted this year, on account of tho compilation of tho Federal vensus reports. Nevertheless Uio Stato Board protests against tho present lack of pro vision for compensation of physicians for such returns. Tho board rocom momls also, in this connection, tho en actment of a law to pay county clerks for collecting and tabulating statistics sent them by physicians under tho ex isting law. Tho board points out that every un certified death is a direct temptation to tho commission of murder. Co-operative efforts between this and other States havo met with some suc cess, tho quarantine conference held last March at Montgomery, Ala., hav ing been productlvo of good rosults. Tho board commends tbo action ot tho National Association of Baggage Agents, taken last summor, to govern tho trans portation of corpses by rail, and regrets that it is not within tho legal power of tho Missouri hoard to adopt and enforce tho requirements of railroad companies in this respect With tho rigid enforcement of modern quarantlno regulations, it is deemed al most Impossible for Asiatic cholera to obtain foothold In America, and scarcely in Europe. Small-pox is very limited in its rav ogos, and the practico of vaccination Is recommended as an almost infalliblo preventive. Diphtheria and scarlet fover aro now regarded as being far moro destructive than small-pox, but tho board believe.", that both diseases aro undor bettor control now than they wero a year ago.

Tho death ot tho dowager Empress Augusta, although from tho nature of her Illness and con sidering hor advanced ago not unex pected, has caused a profound feeling In Berlin. Tho attack of influenza with which sho was seized with tho utmost i violence of tho malady gavo early in dications of developing into pnoumonla and culminated in that dlsonso desplto tbo strenuous efforts of hor physicians to avert it. Tho scenes in tho streets after tho announcement of hor death vividly recalled thoso follow ing thn demiso of her husband, tho lato Kmperor William I., and tho reverential demeanor of tho crowd which throng tho vicinity of tho palaco strongly suggests a renewal of tho ven eration in which tho old monarch's memory Is hold by all Germans, rather than tho ono just dead, Irrespective of her association with him. In conse quence of tho death of tho dowagor Em press, all of tho preparations which wero making for a brilliant celebration of tho birthday of Emperor William II. on January 23 havo been abandoned, and tho occasion will bo allowed to pass ! without special recognition.

Tho board commends the medical prac tico laws of Missouri, along with those of soveral other Western States, and quotes with admitted satisfaction legal decisions upholding Stato boards ol health in tho enforcement of such laws. Tho decisions referred to affirmed the right of such State boards to pass on the sufficiency of medical diplomas, and tc revoke licenses of registered practition ers for promulgation of Immoral lltcra tnro and other unprofossional acts.
