DANGERS TO HEALTH.
SUMMED UP IN BAD AIR, BAD WATER, AND BAD FOOD.
-ADDRESS BY PRESIDENT GREGORY OF THE STATE
BOARD OF HEALTH.-THE TEACHINGS OF SANITARY
SCIENCE IN A NUTSHELL.
Following is the substance of the remarks made by
1?r. John M. Gregory to the members of the Illinois
State Board of Health, in taking his seat as President
of that body:-
Sanitary science is teaching us that much of
the sickness which afflicts our race is the result of
causes which may be avoided, or whose baleful ef-
fects may be lessened or destroyed. Out of our
own ignorant carelessness spring, too often, the
frightful diseases which invade our homes, and fill
them with sickness/sorrow and death. No modern
science is more needful or more benificent than this,
which proposes to aid men to stay the ravages of
preventable diseases, and to lessen the death rate.
Tried even by its commercial or money values, our
work is second to no other in its large public bene-
fits. To save life is to save working, wealth pro-
duoing power. To save population is to preserve
all those values which the very presence of popula-
tion reflects on the soil itself, and on all the pro-
ductions of human skill and toil. To lessen the
amount of sickness in any community, is to relieve
the laboring power of that community, by so much
of the extra burden of caring for the sick, and to
give back the sick man to his place in the ranks of
the workers. None but those who have computed
the cost of rearing and training men from infancy
to manhood, and who have taken account of the
great expenditures and losses caused by disease and
death, can tell the immense value of the services
which sanitary science may render the country.
We may almost question whether the famous ap-
plications of science in the great manufacturing and
wealth producing arts can add more to the sum
total of wealth- and well-being than the health
sciences are already doing in some communities by
their mitigation of the pain and fear of sickness,
and the conservation of life and health.
Let me enumerate some of the common causes of
sickness, which, though quite familiar to sanita-
rians, are still unrecognized by thousands of our
fellow-citizens. The enumeration will serve a valu-
able purpose, and may help to warn the unwary.
Fresh, pure air for breathing stands in the front
ranks of the conditions of life and health. And un-
fortunately this condition is the one most frequent-
ly and most fatally violated by all classes of society.
Food, drink, and exercise are required only at in-
tervals, and may, in case of need, be dispensed
with for days together; but breathing must be con.
stant, through every minute of life, by night and
day. Loaded though it be with dust and dirt, with
foul and deadly gases, with miasma and germs of
disease, the air must be received into the lungs.
Volumes have been written to prove and enforce
the truth that pure air is life and health, and that
foul air is disease and death; but still we sin, and
suffer for our sin, against this truth.
Twice within the last few weeks I have been for
an entire evening confined to rooms where a crowd-
ed company of exceptionally intelligent people re-
mained for hours, breathing over the same air, and
suffered for days afterwards from the poison in-
haled. Only a few days since I visited an Assembly
of scientific men of National reputation, who sat
for hours in a closely packed room, where the at-
mosphere reeked with the hot breaths of the listening
crowd. Go to any social gathering, and as often
in the mansion of wealth as in the cottage of the
poor, we shall find the same blind daring of the dis-
ease-gendering atmospheric poison. Days of head-
ache and of lassitude follow, and disease is engen-
dered : but the fashion and folly go on. Social clubs
and coteries crowd small club-rooms; meetings for
business or for pleasure, for instruction or for
prayer, are held daily in insufficient and ill-venti-
lated apartments; and the failing health of those
who attend these meetings is attributed to any and'
all causes but the true one.
But worst of all, the schools provided for the
education of our children continue, in spite of all
protests and all warnings, to be housed in rooms
too small for the number of pupils, and with a ven-
tilation too often a mere mockery. Thus we plant
the seeds of disease along with the seeds of know-
ledge, and fatally weaken the physical while pro.
fessing to cultivate the intellectual powers. Fre-
quently the school-house is the central and chief
agency for the spread of epidemics and contagions.
Let it be known that no school-room occupied,
as is now the custom, by the whole school, during
all the school-hour%, can be sufficiently ventilated
to make it entirely healthful. Let any physiologist
be asked to make the computation of the air needed,
and he must confirm this statement. From the mo-
ment the children are assembled the air of the
school-room begins to deteriorate ; and, since no
system of ventilation sweeps the whole body of im-
pure air out at once, the best it can do is to keep
the mixture from becoming as bad as possible.
The first rule should be to use the minimum of
confinement for each pupil. The second should be
to keep the fewest possible seated at their studies
in the same room. Every pupil that can be trust-
ed to study his lesson elsewhere should be advised
to visit the school-room at lesson times only;
and, instead of the foolish ambition to keep every
seat filled, let it be sought to have as many vacant
seats as may be possible without remitting any of
It is not, however, ia crowded parlors, club-
rooms, lecture halls, and schools alone that impure
air is to be feared. ln all houses bad air can be '
found. Dust and moldy damp haunt the rooms re-
served for special occasions, while those in daily
use are saturated with the breath, smoke, steam and
gases from all the household life and work. And
frequently the source of corruption is found in the
very soil which the house covers. This is especially
the case with those houses built in our prairie
towns, where without removing a foot of the soil, or
opening a foot of drainage, the house is set upon a
few low posts, and then boarded around to prevent
the cold winds getting under the floor. In the win-
ter it is not uncommon to bank it with straw or even
with barn-yard litter. The half-decayed mass be-
neath, in the dark and damp, unvisited by sun or
wind, generates poisonous gases, which are sucked
up through every crevice in the floor, and fill the
house with their deathlul influence. Such houses
are death-traps. I have known more than one fa-
mily to pine, and even perish, in such a dwelling.
Half of the ill-health of women, over that ofj
men must be charged to the indoor life, which for-t
bids them the life-giving influence of heaven's free,
pure air and sunshine.
Our houses want more windows, larger chimnies,
more transoms, more grate fires in winter, and less
poisonous furnaces. It is to the stoves within our
own bodies, fed by abundance of fresh air, that we
must look for healthfulest heat, and not so mach to
the stoves whose porous iron plates offer so little
resistance to the deadly carbonic acid gas. We
make our houses comfortable at the expense of their
healthfulness when we shut out God's sunshine and
pure air. Better, in this respect, the wind-searched
hovel of the poor man than the padded homes of
luxury and wealth.
Especially should our sleeping-rooms be made
larger, and be better ventilated. Better the open
window and the night air, often so foolishly dread-
ed, than the slow poisoning which the bad air
gives, and which leaves the sleeper to awake weak
and unrefreshed by his slumbers. No more serious
mistake is made in our house-building than that of
the small bed-chambers. Sanitary science says that
these apartments should be the largest, sunniest
and airiest of all in the house. Let them never be
on the ground floor, and let the bed be rolled at
night into the middle of the room, so that the air
may move freely around the sleepers.
IMPURE DRINKING WATER.
The common drinking-water of thousands of fa-
milies is filled with foulness and the seeds of disease.
In the country places the wells are frequently so
shallow as to be supplied with the mere surface of
water, filled with organic matter washed from the
soil. As the summer heats and droughts diminish
the supply, the family continue to use the dregs
until no,more can be dipped from the muddy bot-
tom, and often till some, to them unaccountable
disease seizes upon several members of the family
in quick succession. In the villages the wells are
commonly placed near the kitchen door, for con-
venience sake, and the slops and washings from
the kitchen, are thrown on the ground close by, to
filter into the well with but little change in their
condition. In many other ways the drinking water
of the family is rendered impure, and typhoid fever,
or some other filth disease follows as naturally as
harvest comes from seed-sowing.
It ought to be urged with a tireless tongue, that
a plentiful supply of good, pure drinking water is
one of the first and most Important conditions of
health for man or beast. And whenever any mem-
ber of a family is seized by any form of zymotic or
filth disease, the water supply of that family ought
to come immediately under suspicion, and the most
thorough examination be instituted. Let them
make sure that the well or cistern is free from all
impurities, For a small sum a cheap filter may be
constructed which will remove nearly every im.-
purity, when the source of the water supply cannot
b3 readily cleansed or changed.

BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE.
DEAR SIR,-In the interests of the community,
of Sellers, Buyers, Senders, Receivers, yes, and of
the Owners of this handy little Steamer will you
kindly insert this in your well-read paper. If it
-las worth while getting the Steamer, surely it is
worth while that means be devised by which the
greatest amount of benefit derivable from her pres-
ence may be obtained. Well, when it is a common
occurrence for packages to be put on board for de-
livery, and to be carried to and fro for days before
reaching the owner, many will be deterred from
using the Boat, enduring rather the inconvenience
of waiting a fixed time to the risk and uncertainty
of the Dispatch"-so-called.
It seems to me that the remedy is simple, and
equally certain do I feel that it would not only be
effective-but profitable to the Owners, and to the
Storekeepers of Hamilton who I am persuaded are
losing much trade BECAUSE OF THE DIFFICULTY AND
TNCERTAINTY of communication between that Town
and Boa7, Ireland, &c.
I would suggest that at each place of call, an ar.
rangement be made with some one party to receive
all parcels duly addressed, and to deliver them on
being demanded and paid for.
"By this arrangement the whole community would
be benefited. And if the owners would increase
their profits, let them take a hint from that world-
wide benefactor, the founder of our Penny Postage
system. Let them charge one Penny (or even a
half-penny) instead of three pence, and they may
rely on it the Public would avail themselves of the
rcmrI thus afforded, to an extent which would
far surpass their expectations: whereas people at
present are carefully avoiding the DrFIcuLTES oc-
casioned by the lack of "Despatch."
For. the Royal Gazette.
To most men the newspaper is not only a luxury
but a necessity, and no business man should be
without it. But while all feel the necessity there
is for them to read the papers, there are too many,
who for this purpose use their neighbour s pockets
instead of their own, and on paper days, hardly is
the paper in the house, when the borrower comes
either to read or to borrow, in the one case to occu-
py valuable 'time with idle remarks, in the other to
keep, and return at his own convenience.
The Newspaper borrower is a bore at all times;
he is dishonest, for he borrows that which he never
pays; he is mean, for if it is a necessity, he should
pay for it, and not depend on his neighbour's purse
to supply his wants.
The Editor labours to supply the public with all
the news that can be gathered, sparing neither
money, nor time, to cater to their wants, depend-
ing on their patronage for support; and all who
use the news so gathered without paying for it, are
mean and contemptible. D.
The above remarks do not apply to those, whose
extreme poverty makes them dependant on their

Building intended for a School-Room in Smith's

RELIABLE FOOD PRODUCTS.
Great progress has been made within a few
years in manufacturing food products, and the
standard of quality has been raised to a point far
beyond that which formerly obtained. We claim
that this has, to a considerable extent, been due
to our efforts; as the Largest Marufacturers and
Dealers in the world in this line, we consider it
our interest to manufacture only PUn z and W0LE-
SOME goods, and pack them in a tidy and attrac-
tive manner. All goods bearing our name are
guaranteed to be of superior quality, and dealers
are authorized to refund the purchase price in

Resolved, that the Receiver General by neglect-
ing to report to the Governor, as required by law,
the ability of the Treasury to reduce the Public
Debt, on the plea that the Assembly had tailed to
provide for the total Treasury Liabilities, (while in
reality the Assembly had acted in regard to these
liabilities according to usage and as suggested by
himself, and in a mode commended by the Governor
in his despatch No. 79 of 1880 Paras. 51 and 52) and
alao.by retaining in the Treasury to meet unforseen
contingenoles, the sum of 2000, (the very amount
appropriated to the reduction of the Public Debt) in
direct opposition to Law and usage; has forfeited
the confidence hitherto reposed in him by this

and opinions expressed In the four concluding

but on consulting a physician was informed that it
was caused by the medicine restoring my imperfect
orculation and acting on the diseased matter in my
stomach, caused by the droppings of the catarrah.

SiR,-SYour INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP has cured
ne entirely of the distress in my head, and relieved
very difficulty of my bowels. I must say that it
s the best medicine that any person can take for
sick headache. a
DEAR SIa,-I used your INDIAN BLOOD SY-
RUP for Dyspepsia (from which I suffered for five
rears,) with the happiest results.
A few doses placed my stomach in a condition to
digest food-theieby relieving me of those distress-
ng pains experienced by dyspeptics after eating-
ind although it at first caused occasional dizziness
t quickly disappeared on my continuing its use.
Ty digestion is now almost perfect, and I feel great-

C. Johnson, M.D.,
DEAR SIR,-I take pleasure in recommending
your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP as an invaluable
remedy for Dyspepsia. My wife has been a suffer-
er from periodical dyspeptic attacks of the most
acute nature for over 5 years. During such attacks
death would almost be a relief to her. She was
prescribed for by several doctors without effect.
Nothing gave her relief until she obtained a bottle
of your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP. Its effects
were wonderful and she is now entirely cured. It
is a medicine that no household should be without.

DEAR St,--This is to certify that I have found
more good in your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP than
any Medicine that I have ever taken for Dyspepsia

it to try DR. CLARK JOHNSON'S INDIAN
