In general, the changes which oc

atrophy and a replacement of paren

changes in the accommodation of the
eye are the first signs of old age;
next, change in the color of the hair,

The two diagnostic tests referred
to above are the X-ray and the
tuberculin test. The tuberculin test
is an accurate and safe method of
determining whether a patient is in
fected with the tubercle bacillus, or
ever has been. Its value “for diag
nostic purposes is largely confined to
children, because after the age of 12.
on account of the widespread preva
lence of tuberculous Infection, nearly
all people react positively. The test
is harmless and is made by rubbing
a substance called "tuberculin” into
the skin of the arm. Tuberculin is
a liquid, containing no germs, living
or dead; all have been filtered out,
and it cannot cause infection. The
doctor can tell by the appearance of
the skin three to five days after the
test, whether or not the child has
been infected with tuberculosis.
The X-ray enables the physician to
see changes caused by the disease in
the lungs or the lymph nodes at the
root of the lung. Tuberculosis causes
increased density of the tissues and
enlargement of these nodes, and the
changes are made evident on the
X-ray plgte.
With these two means it Is possi
ble to examine whole schools of chil
dren and weed out the ones who
seem to be Infected. The Massachu
setts state department of health has
been doing this for the last seven
years. During the last year they
have examined 48.006 grade pupils *
and 8,700 high school pupils, . One
per cent of the grade pupils and 1.2
per cent of the high school pupils
were shown to have early childhood
It is to be hoped that these meth

United States, and that by so doing,
the menace of tuhwculosia may be
further reduced.
