the address of Prof Stalker before our Institute PBOF STALKEBS REBOOT The work has gotten quite jbsyond thb experimental stage The only question that remains for settlement is how rapidly and how thoroughly tha work of exterminating the disease can be carried on The uniform certainty of the tuberculin test has had abiihdant confirmation in my experience with its use since bur last meeting I need not reiterate the facts set forth in my re port at this time If I ever had a doubt as to the reliability and inesti mable importance of test for the detectionof tuberculosis my experience with some 1V2QO cases has dispelled all my misgivings I have neveVfpund else in the whole range of medical science from which so nearly can be expected In but one singleinstance of all the casBScoming under uiy ob seivatibn has itibeeri necessary to use the microscope to confirm thefinding of the tuberculin test Its demonstraV tions have convinced the most skepti cal and the nibst obstinate disbelievers Those started out to opppsev the test have abandoned thia line of at tack and have fallen back on the ad vice to thepiiblic to close their eyes and swallow the contaminated food products from thesediseased brutes or rather to dispose of the rotten stuff and allow the other fellow to eat it without knowing what it is The very least that sanitary precautionand ordi nary decency could demand would be to requirethat all such products should be distinctly labeled setting forth the fact that the animal from which they were obtained was affected Tvith tuber culosis This would place the pur chaser in a position to decide for him self just as he now can depide whether he wishes to purchase and use oleo margarine on tho table No fair What A WomanCan Bo I want my lady friends to know of

LESS THAN WHOLESALE COST quarter of the world where scientific research is carried on as I have been able to follow the development of the disease among the cattle of our country it obtainecl its first extensive imported stock placed breeding herds From these herds individuals went out to other ofthe same breed and to the yards of the common farmer These early centers of infec tionItecame distributing points for the disease and iu the course of time through such means and over avenues other communications be came widespread a ust how general the infection has become in our own state would require a good deal ofwork to determine in addition to what has already been done Iam of the opinion that it has not yet become general among tbe herdsof the common farmer Usually their modes of caring ior their stock are not favorable to the dissemination of contagious disease The conditions prevailing among breeding herds and dairy stock tend in a much stronger way to spread infection of any nature when once introduced And it is from these two sources that we antic HEBE A FEW OF THE BABCrAINS Mens SUITS that cost at wholesale 81150 to we will close out at Kens OVERCOATS that cost at

As to the manner in which the work is received I believe that boards of health have uniformly regarded the in vestigations with high favor Many have been most emphatic in their ex pressions of

of tuberculous meat But the mortuary statistics of Copenhagenshows that bej tween 40 and 45 per cent of all deaths oeeuring among males between the ages of 25 and 85 and all of the males between the ages of 15 and 25i must be referred to tuberculosis Vienna a still more alarmiug state of affairs But we need not go outside of our own country for statis tics equally startling where little or no precaution is taken to prevent in fection from tuberculous food products An interesting case came under my observation a few days agowhile mak ing a postmortem examination of some cows that had been slaughtered as tuberculous One of these had been selected for the purpose of supplying milk to an iufaut The child died The cow was placed under test and re acted Showing the presence of the dis ease She was slaughtered and the carcass subjected to careful tion A large portion of the udder proved to be a granular mass of tuber culous deposit though not a itrace of disease could be detected from the ex ternal appearanceof that organ This proved a good illustraiion of the fact that ths danger line is not to be drawn at the constitutional collapse of the animal If the animal is diseased in ever so slight a degree it is a menace to public health On this point the ex periments of Ernst and Peters of Har vard forthe Massachusetts board of agriculture are conclusive One hun dred nud fourteen samples of milk from tuberculous cows with apparently per fectly healthy udders wore tested and u liitle over 81 percent of these sam ples proved capable of producing tuber culosis The Ottawa health board have made a most exhaustive series of experiments to determine the infec tious nature of rhilK from tuberculous cowswitli6ut regards tothe region of the body affected They arc nnoqiilvo cal and

owners of cpndemnedstock have cheerfully acquiesced1 in the re sults The loss has been considerable in some instances but the feeling has prevailed that the owner was better off for having made the discovery in limetoavert a greater disaster There are a few instanceswhere the owner under the influence of urrvvise counsel vould have preferred to unload the iliseaSed animalson the unsuspecting purchaser and permit him topocket the loss where a hearty Jcooperatiori was not indulged in From this source and from others similarly sit uated who are anxious lo make sales before dctectienthe work
