:i lljt*r,. ospinal fever.-The only case of cerebrospinal fever re-
poI, tp roved to be a fatal one.
ts pa:i.-The prevalence of mumps throughout the city is still
i ke: : ed, and-for the month there were 15 cases reported.
S VACCINATIONS .
i 4" the month 1,994 vaccinations were performed, bringing
.* ..'< :.: .. .. >: ;.:. ... .S .
stho.tal since April 1 to 14,727.
SMosQuTrro,,RAT, AND FLY WORK.
ii::: <'i The antimalaria work in the vicinity.of the exposition grounds
t as further extended to include the Bella Vista property, at which
p:?'^ lac, residences-are now under construction.
,lM; ; Mosquitoes.-An examination of the street cars at terminal points
aio':utside of the city revealed that anopheles mosquitoes enter and
:;:: :attack persons waiting in the cars. In the car barn after running
h: ,;:.:: em an A. tarsimaculata was discovered hiding behind the con-
':;''iroller box, where he was tubed." This may account for a small
: ii'': umber of cases in the section of the city far removed from the
i ': anopheles districts.
:i:i lies.-During the month 302 deposits of fly larvae were destroyed,
: ':: whichh is a slight improvement over the previous months, and the
'ev:.:::: iaevalence of flies in the city is not very marked.
ats.-During the month 1,159 rats were caught and submitted
I.' to laboratoryoy examination for plague, with negative results.
It was observed in a new rat-proof building that a large rat came
romi:': m behind a counter, jumped upon the same, and from thence to
S;.e wall shelves. Continuing, he jumped several feet to a drop-
i ght wire, up which he ran, thence along a 1-inch water pipe,
: i: where 'he disappeared on his way to the second floor. This illus-
:,a.;:: tes the difficulty in preventing rats from entering a building,
;as in this case the rat had evidently come in from some stables
adj : ; ".acent, and made his hurried trip to the second floor in search
i:.., f fbod. It is believed, however, that if this rat was sick with
:pge he would not undertake such a strenuous journey, exposing
S lmselfin his feebleness to the danger of being killed. His very
:er:.ng would make him so cautious as to remain near his burrow
o harbor, even though his food was not immediately plentiful.
GARBAGE.
With the entrance of the dry season the garbage was more satis-
factorily created at Dump No. 1, where great improvement has
Seen made in the approaches. Only 120 quarts of flies were trapped
S oi the public dump during the month.
S LDINGB.
: : ,.:. .. : 'Bum n s.
,' The repairing of buildings was continued and 49 permits for such
woir.k were granted.during the month.
Detailed statistics are shown in Table XVII.
