Moreover, we may say dirt is at least suspicious if not dangerous and mainly for the reason that the dan gerous kinds of dirt and the Innocu ous kinds may be all mixed together. Usually dirty surroundings and dirty habits go together. Such facts show that filth Is, generally speaking, Inim ical to health and Is a subject for the health officer. There Is a difficulty, bowever, In that there Is In practice little, If any, discrimination among the different kinds of filth.. That Is to say, the health officer should recog nize what forms of uncleanliness are most dangerous and attack those first. He will find that a campaign for street cleaning will result In but little as a vital factor In sanitation, while a cam paign for sewers and the abolition of open privies will result In great bene fit to the public In general.
