FOR THE PUBLIC HEALTH.
POLUTION OP THE FOHTATUCK.
To the Kdltor of The Bee, Dear Sir : I
feel as It It were my duty to offer you
this short communication for publica
tion. Have the people of the beautiful
village of Sandy Hook ever stopped to
consider what partially constitutes the
picturesque, yet disease spreading Poh
tatuck, which glides so quietly and
silently on, dally carrying by and to
their very doors the offal, smelling and
death-laden germs, which have been in
the past and may be ia the future the
harbingers of intestinal, malarial, or per
haps, even worse, contagious diseases to
those worn out by the burdens of the
world, the cares of maternity, or the in
roads of their not too well spent lives?
Fortunately, Sandy Hook has been
free from epidemics, yet none but the
Omnipotent One knows what the grim
future mav some day have In store. If
the well thinking people of this scenic
village trace in their mind's eye, or seek
by practical investigation, the stream,
known as the Pohtatuck, what will they
find throughout its entire course? They
will observe the offal sewerage of nearly
a score of waterclosets and half as many
stables, besides the dregs of hundreds of
pounds of decaying garbage or other
vegetable matter emptying Into this ap
parently harmless stream, day after day,
month after month, year after year ; and
during the hot weather of June, July
and August, owing to the vast consump
tion of the supply for manufacturing
purposes they will discover the water
falling by day and rising by.night. What
Is the result? From a considerable por
tion of the bed of this stream, saturated
as it is by the ill-smelling refuse and
subjected to the incubating effects of the
hot rays of the noon-day sun, they will
find themselves by evening breathing
the multitude of germs of malarial, in
testinal and kindred disorders, with no
possibility of escape except through the
intervention of their genial health officer,
who, from lack of sufficient time, has,
perchance, been unable to investigate as
I have done during my residence, a mat
ter which concerns the welfare of a large
number of our most respected citizens. I
do not care to cast any reflection on the
activity of our efficient health official, for
the subject of this article may not have
entered into his mind. But in justice I
feel it my imperative duty to call his at
tentiod, not only to the existing condition
of affairs in the Pohtatuck but also to a
small pond, better termed cess-pool,
which more fortunately is not so central
ly located, namely that disease-spreading
mudhole situated on the road to Berk
shire and better known as the slaughter
house pond. Why it Is allowed to exist
no one pretends to know. Would it not
be better to fill it in, as it seems to have
no particular object except to add to the
number of disease germs in our immedi
ate vicinity?
The closets which empty into the
stream elsewhere referred to could be sit
uated further back and dry boxes placed
beneath them so that their refuse could
be conveved away in its entirety. The
drainage from stables could be turned
into other channels and received into
suitable vaults, from which the contents
could be utilized for fertilization in the
spring of the year. The garbage could
be put In proper recepticles and removed
once or twice a week during the hot sum
mer months to a place designated by the
health official and there interred. Thus
at a very small outlay would the dangers
arising from the present condition of af
fairs, If not entirely obliterated, be at
least reduced to a minimum before the
summer of '96.
And one more word to the citizens in
genaral : In constructing a water closet
or a pig pen or in sinking a well, always
see that the two former are situated at
least 40 to 60 feet from the latter and also
at a lower elevation. With this simple
precaution you will be less liable to find
your supply of drinking water contami
nated and yourselves and your families
less liable to contract the numerous ills
depending on an impure water supply.
As this subject Is a matter which the
lay citizen would hardly stop to consider
It is to the trained eye of the medical man
a topic which is of paramount importance
to tne neaicn 01 a community and one
that well deserves the consideration
which has been allotted to It. Very re
spectfully, James W. Gordon, A. B.
M. D., Sandy Hook, August 21.

DEATH OF MISS ETHEL BISHOP.
Mr and Mrs Theodore Bishop of Little
York have been called to mourn by the
death of their 12-year-old daughter, Miss
Ethel, on Monday. She was stricken
with inflammation of the bowe.s on Sat
urday. The funeral was attended on
Tuesday, Rev J. D. Smiley officiating
The afflicted family will have abundant
sympathy in their grievous affliction.
Many have asked about the "up to
date" music, of which the Grand Central
hotel guests are noted for this summer.
The reason is that they have with them
some of the finest talent from Bridge
port and New Haven, both vocal and in
strumental. Last Friday evening, a eel
ebrated violinist from New Haven, who
was stopping at the hotel, entertained
the guests with some very fine selections
accompanied with the piano. It is a
common remark among the townspeople,
that it is a pleasure to them, to see such
a nice class of people in town, as those
stopping at the Grand Central. There
are new arrivals every day, and more
are coming. Messrs Houlihan and Kane
have every reason to feel proud ot their
success. Perfect satisfaction is guaran
teed, as far as cleanliness attention
is concerned, together with quality
and quantity, of which the table affords.
It can truly be said that the Grand
Central stands second to none in the
Housatonic valley.
Probably one of the most beautiful
summer resorts in America is the

Co. will conduct their four days tour to

Island House, or Columbia Hotel.

The congregation at Trinity church,
Sunday, greatly enjoyed the privilege of
listening to that beautiful duet, "My
faith looks up to Thee," which was ren

Bridgeport and Mrs Jackson of New Ha

ously together. Judging by expressions
of those present it is safe to say It was
thoroughly appreciated. Many thanks
are extended to both ladies ; also to the
promoter of such an unexpected pleas

- "It Is the best patent medicine in the
world" is what E. M. Hartman, of Mar
quam, Oregon, says of Chamberlain's
colic, cholera and diarrhoea remedy.
"What leads me to make this assertion
is from the fact that dysentery in its
worst form was prevalent around here
last summer and it never took over two
or three doses of that remedy to effect a
permanent cure." For sale by E. F.
