ABSTRACT

The work of our State Boards of Health is an index of the general intelligence of the community. Great praise is due to the manifest zeal and wisdom in action of this Board, yet we can but feel that the thousands of intelligent citizens of the great State of Pennsylvania, and especially the members of the medical profession, have failed in their duty to the State by not insisting upon an appropriation that would have a moderate relation to the needs of the community. As it is, any emergency finds the Board wellnigh helpless.

We find much of present interest and of permanent value in these pages. Every practitioner should regard himself as an assistant of the Board of Health, and nowhere so well as in these records can he read the lessons taught by loss of life due to lack of cleanliness and of care for infectious disease.
