To thQ County Commissioners of the County of Middles», Court (House,. East Cambridge, Massachusetts. Qontlemen: The Department ot (Public Health. received from you under dote of July 16. 1924, a request for |tae examination ot tho water of Walden Pond to determine its conditions, especially at the bathing beach at the easterly end of the pond, and you also request such recommendations ai the Department «nds best to make In the circumstances. In response to your request the Department has. caused the pond and its surroundings to he examined by Its engineer and haa also caused samples of the water col* lected from time to time lit different pants of the pond to' be analysed. The results ot the Analyses of the water collected along the bathing beach when large numbers of bathers were present In the water show "that the number of objectionable bacteria present Is small, being little If any greater than the numbor present at other similar resorts, while In the early morning before bathing has begun the number .of bacteria present In the water Is Insignificant. (During the progress of these toveatlgnitons there were rumors of the prevalence of diseases of .the skin, noso and throat, thought to be due to bathing at this reservation. 'In order to ascertain the experience of physicians with reference to the prevalence of such diseases, |tho department has sought information by means of lettera from all physicians In Wtaltham, Lincoln, Lexington and Concord, or upward of sixty In all. Up to the present time twenty-five readies have been received, or 45 per cent of those received, state that ithey found no association between skin, nose and throat infections and bathing In Walden Pond. Of the remaining Ave, one has had no cases at/trlbirted to bathing in Walden 'Pond, while the other four report ten cases In all, four *>t ■thorn <in one family. Even in thin case the infection Is not traced directly to bathing In Waldeu Pond. The general examinations of th.i ' pond, as already stated, show -that the condition of its water has been satisfactory throughout the past summer and the water at present suplled'from two driven -wells for drinking at the "bathing bcacn Is of good quality and saf&. for drlpfclng. It does not appear to the Department that there Is sufficient evidence that skin, nose and throat Infections noted toy physicians in this region can be reasonably attributed to bathing In Walden pond though such diseases may result Indirectly from exposure at any bathing place. Under the circumstances, the Department sees no present reason to advlso the discontinuance of bathing at the reservation a* Walden Pond. Jtespeotfiflly. (Signed) EUGENE It. KBtilJEY.

All people want It, and, once they've got It, they try to kec(i It. For vim, rightly used, leads to success, and success, also rig':itly used, leads to prosperity and happiness. The demand for vim produced the iMnkey gland Idea. Monkey glands may or may noAisstore vim to a person who has frittered It away. That It «till an unsettled question. But a settled question—4 question that has been proved a thousand thousand times—It thla: A bath a day helps anybody, old or young, to keep a tight grl|J on vim. The dally bath Is the greatest tonic ever Invented. It tones the entire body—skin, organs, nerves. And to tone is to stimulate life, vigor, ylm. When a man weakens he is out of tune—lacks tone. So, tvien, forget about monkey glands and think of your bathroom. A first class bathroom, with everything In It that should be In it, Is worth a whole treeful of monkeys- And a bath a day Is worth a dozen monkey glands, and at a fraction of the cost.AUSTIN D.
