the paper read at the meeting last

It is ad follows: '
Typhoid fever is caused by the
typhoid bacillus. Water is the uriuci
pal vehicle by which this bacillus gains
admittance to the body, in Maury
County it is si most, if not altogether, the
only one. Hence, the most important
means of preventing tins lever, is to

words to ten any pnysicau or even any

each one here to-day that when the

ever so many times minted, linos its

Iv to produce typhoid fever. Further it
is contended and not without reason
that even healthy stools may become
source of infection, on account of a cer
lain bacillus, naturally benign, and
normally present, becoming malignant
outsioe tlie body and degenerating iuto
a nalhoueuic germ.

This is not an nverurawn picture of tlie
premises of many of our well to do peo
ple, and I lay special stress up u this,
simply because 1 am painfully con
vinced that tlie water supply is most
sadly neglected throughout the county,
and becomes thereby a moot proline
source of sickness ana death.
"Now, a lew simple suggestions as to
how tliedrinking water may be kept
pure, (and iu following these you are
lighting not only typhoid fever, but all
oilier water-borne uiseases).
'First, the spring or well and the
privies and other out-houses, should
not be so located, that the drainage
shall be from latter, toward the former.
If thev are already so located, then it is
I absolutely essential that such a condi
tion shollia oe renieuieu, n ii, can oe
done at any reasonable cost. If the
itround is level, tncii they should be at
least HKI yards apart, or, 'if this is not
feasible, then the ytw y should be sup
plied with a tight vault which will Hot
allow the subsoil to become saturated
with its contents and from which tr.ey
can be removed and carried to a safe

that the top of the well, cistern or

impervious curbing or a closely built
stone wall for several feet below the
ground extending a few feet above, and
by a judiciously located ditch, kept con
stantly open by being frequently and
thoroughly cleansed out.
"Where this is carried out completely
Bnd without defect, it will cover a mul
titude of other hygienic sins. One of
these dug wells, with wood or the usual
stone curbing, can not be kept in a sat-
lsiactory condition from a sanitary
point of view, and is a pro.itic source of
typhoid lever and is an all round and
sanitary nuisance. They should, every
one, be tilled up with eirth or sand and
then, if much needed, be bored out and
an iron pipe put in. Where the source
of water supply is in proximity to the
dwelling (not a fatal object. on tinder

should be kept for all slop water, so
that it will not be thrown out upon the

"Now , in conclusion, a few words in
explanation of this series of papers.
The prevention of disease is the perfec
lion of medical science, and every true
physician takes as much pride in the
prevention as in the cure of di ease.
When this idea was suggested, it le
ceived the prompt and unanimous en
dorsement of the Maury County Medi
cal Society. We realize that the aver
age liberty-loving, American citizen,
feels that he is absolute monarch of his
own premises and resents to some ex
tent any interference by the health of
ficer with what he considers his private
affairs. Hut we also know that a large
number of our Maury County farmers
are intelligent, reasoning people, and
that when they are made to see that
there are many preventable causes of
disease under their control, then hey
will take heed and protit thereby.
Hence we present these papers, confi

"Water has a tendency to purify it
self. Flverv particle of sediment as it
goes to the bottom, takes with it a clus
ter of bactina, which have attached
themselves to it, the typhoid bacillus
gradually sinking in the water anyway.
Many epidemics of typhoid fever have
been caused by dredging in streams
from which tho water was obtained.
Hesides it is a well known fact that
typhoid fever is an autumnal fever,
coining on when the water is low, and
the i-ediment necessarily stirred up in
dipping out the water. Hence, all sedi
ment should be avoided. At the sain"
time, you must not jump to the conclu
sion, that clear water is necessarily pure
water. Water may be as clear as crystal
and as cold as ice, and yet be teeming
with typhoid bacilli.
"Now, as to artificial purification,
where a naturally pure water supply is
not accessible, referring of course to
such as the individual may employ, a
simple and entirely effective plan is
boiling. Hut boiling necessitates the
use of ice and besides, spoils in a great
degree the palatability. This can be
remedied to a certain extent by pouring
from one vessel to another, thereby re
placing that small per cent, of air which
grain tney give a peck.
