The Virginia State Board of Health has just issued a timely circular on "Precautions Against Typhoid Fever." At the outset some startling statements are made. It is said that typhoid fe ver is a most prevalent disease in Virginia, and the reports show 1 hat it is especially prevalent at this season of the year, being pres ent in almost every county in the State at this time. It is further stated that a safe and proper esti mate would be that'at least 10,000 persons are sick with this disease annually in Virginia, and that about 1,000 die trom its effects. Whenever a single case of small pox is reported in any community there is more or less alarm, yet the State Board of Health says thas ty phoid fever kills its thousands where small pox kills one. This ought to be enough to arouse the people of every commu nity to the necessity of taking proper precautions against typhoid fever, and the State Board of Health is authority for the state ment that this terrible disease is due to neglect, to filth, and to the failure to observe proper hygienic conditions. It is admitted, the circular goes on, thai typhoid fever is an infect ious disease, transmitted from one person to another by an infecting agent called a germ, which is found in the blood and foecal discharges of one sick with this disease, which germ is most virulent and active when the fever is at its height. There is a popular impression that typhoid fever comes from bad air, but the State Board of Health says that it is positively asserted and proven that this disease in ninety-nine cases out ot a hundred is contracted from drinking watei. Many people believe that if the water whi:h they drink is clear and tasteless and without odor it is pure water, but the State Board of Health says that drinking water may possess all these qualities and yet be rankly poisoned with the fever germ. The people are. there fore, warded against drinking water, especially al this season of the vear. which (hev do not know ti Jo be perfectly pure. There is oi e .sale rule for people living in town, and that is not to drink well water or spring water.

Next to water, we are told that the most common carrier of the ty phoid fever germ is milk, and it is further said tint the germ is ordi narily introduced into milk by water being mixed with or by washing milk cans or vessels with water. Typhoid fever may also come from defective sewerage, un clean premises and filth generally. It would appear from this that if people will drink pure water and pure milk, or no milk at all; and keep their premises entifely clean, they will be reasonably afe from typhoid fever. At least, l.y observ ing these general precautions the danger will be reduced to the minimum Richmond 'limes. Chinese are dangerons enemies, for they are treacherous.
