SANITATION-PANAMA.

COMMUNICABLE DISEASES.

The prevalence of measles and mumps continues, scattered over
the entire ciy. Many cases were isolated at Santo Tomas Hospital.

MOSQUITO, RAT, AND FLY WORK.

S-. Mosquitoes.-In anticipation of the wet season work was 'under-
taken to placein excellent condition all of the present earth drains.
A concrete ditch was established at the expense of the lot owners
in the San Miguel district, which will eliminate the maintenance of
several hundred feet of ordinary earth ditches.
Work was begun by the Bella Vista Co. toward establishing a cul-
vert for discharging a large body of collected storm water now stand-
ing near their bathing pavilion. This will relieve a large anopheles
breeding area, and marks the*boundary limit of antimalarial work
supervised by this office.
Rats.-Nine hundred and fifty-one rats were caught and sub-
mitted for plague examination, all negative. At an old stable,
Central Avenue and J Street, demolished by the owner, our men
S removed a small concrete platform which constituted the floor of
the feed room, and under this floor were discovered 98 rats, which
:i: were killed. This concrete floor did not extend into the earth, and
