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.
