THE object of this Re.port i., to place, before the M edical Board the
i facts concerning the pas-t aw1 pre-,-ut lihealth of the umle'hi:-rs of the
Mission, together with suggestions as to th,- means w hereby their health
may be further 'afeguarde'J and improved iii thle iLture.
In dealing with this rquetion, tihe histtoral method has been largely
employed. It wa thought that this method would render more- intel-
ligible some of tile coiciiusions and reconincndationus herein contained,
and, further, that. t .'.o-uldl .,i'pply a medical .iuni.ary \h l'li might be of
use for purposes of reference. The -tatistire li' oIlletv.d are not
readily ace'ess hle, and they hlave- not bofore blr-u coll'cte'l or tabulated.
This being the ase, it xtas th'ieught advicable- to make tht.m .t complete?
as possible even at the risk of being tediousi. Th,_ historical and statistical
parts of the Repoit caiu easily vbe 'tauitted if desired. aind attention can be
directed to the general di-cussicii,- and sl iggestious -, whereas their exclu-
sion from the Report might have-? seriouslyi inipaired it- u-efiduneL for
referenee ptirposes. Moreover .is the various stations of the Misiiou differ
much as regard- bhth their health records ind also the improvements
recommended, it has been thought best to deal with each oroe separatelv
in the first instance, and ritrv.ards to ive a general re:vir:.' of the whole.
Malaria is the bcouirge of th. whole of Central Africa,so that for Europeau
residents the health problem bie-con,-.s mnilyv a question of the avoid iano
of malaria. In view of the recent dicriveries of the relation of thr mosquito
to the propagation of malaria, the destruction ot miiosquitoe- or the pre-
vention of their bites becomes a matter oi primary importance. Henct
a considerable amount of this. report will 1.,e devoted to oleservntions on
mosquitoes at the various stations, to the coiiclusions to "which such
observations lead, and to the pie.cautions which they siigge't.
Plan of Report.-In accordance with the above principles the following
plan has been adopted Each European station is tik-n in turi and dis-
cussed under the following heids First, the general physical character-
istios of the locality. lor these have in important bearing on the general
question of health, and more particularly on the ,ulbje't of mosquitoes.
Secondly, the history of the Mission Station is given, and then the health
record of the workers who Iti ve been stationed there. Next, observations
'n the prevalence and distribution of mosquitoes in the neighbourhood are
enumerated, with a vie%\ to ascertaniniig how far these observations accord
.. with the facts of the health record. Finally, from n coijnideration of both
the health record and the mosquito observations, rules and recommenda-
tions for the future are deduced;

during recent year?,, Vill i, 'liuN.I?-. ThIe will followw a summary of the
m'n.thods v.'hilh have beien rrco'mm1n,.de.d by v'1ariou? authorities on the

On Certain Precautions against \ Mosquitoes, of
general application.
IN order to avoid repetition it will I-e '.vell t,, enumerate certain tiles
which are equally applicable all -i'ei the ilii.?ese, and which should Ibe
rigidly adhered to. Fui the most part thee are ar..ady' ,noirined in the
"Ints on Health,"' ulit they are s..iewhat amtphuied hie (N,,.2 is altered "
and No. .5 is new).
1. Mosquito u'-ts should invariably be uce-I. They .Auld Il. 1 made
according to the N'y.ir.a p[-,tern it the COiice, i.e. seven feet long, three.
feet wide, cid, ca/li:o -j, iind til. 1.'ri.t i t., qit oi tir,, i. rT is latter point
is of great iniip:rtiu'.:e as it prevents Lmc'O'luitoi:'s fiim .'iting tie hani.d or
feet if they -hould rest during 'leep against thi: ide lf the not (see Malarial
"oominssioiu RPeprts). Many not-, .ire made ridie',tioi-ly small, e.g. .ix
feet by two fect, a id no, with i:.ali:,) round the bottom.
Mosquito nLet are in general it-,e tliiou'hout the dliocee (except on the
steamers). It. must be- confe:s-ed, hiever, that sometimes they are of no
practical value, because they aret out of ri.pair. .IA i.t fid)l &o lidoc. ir v'rc
than usrl,, li,: it 'er j'afo iJll -11 it clril/t. With hard usage (travelling
about, etc.j a net will only last a vear. When it begiLns to get rotten ani ,
tear into small lolk-, it is v.-acted ailoiul to ty to mend it, as there are
always a number of hiles which pass unnoticed, 1.uit vhich ndmnit mos-
quitoes. It hloJ.hJ, theref.,te, be ,lestroyed,. and a new ,one made.
I have cildeavourecd to meet this lithculty Tby ordering out pare tios-
quito netting, and ditributing it to each station. Also the care of
the mosquito nets throughout ea(th tati-in has been made the special
business of th,: nurse. Tle-e lm'eaaure. will do something ; but what is
really wanted is an in'/lili uep.t preirai.oinu of thle object and need
of a mosquito n,.t by all members of the Miksion, and a recognition of the
fact that anopheles may be present anm may bite unnoticed at night hevn,
as is often said, there are practically no mosqiuitois here."
i Another point, of iniportance is that the lbeld hliould be sufficiently large4
not less than seven feet by thirt:-e feet Jit the least. A lig bed gives room to
move about without coming in coiltact v. ili the sides of the net, whereas
a small bed with the net tucked in round it takes away all the. advantage of
a big net.

is hardly practicable in a Mi-iion Station, especially with a community of

On the other hand it .hoiild be recognized that the neighbourhood of

There is a central hilly backbone, the highe-t hill being .'.40 feet above,

there are plains half to one mile brroad betv een the Ills arind the lake shore.
These naturally have the best soil. but cassava is pl.uit.d all up the hills,

Where not cultivated., the land grows brushwood and creepers freely, arid
small trees, the leaves of which form the food of the goats and cattle
during the dry season. ThIere are no large trees except Baobabs. which
grow to a great. size. Probably other trees would also grow big were they
not constantly being iut for firewood, which is very ecarce. Fish are
plentiful in the lake, all round the island, and during the wet sea-on some
are also caught at the mouths of the streams. Together with cassava

somiie from the wetern short of thIe lake (Nkata Bay, Chizi, and Bandawe),
some ftro, the eastern. These fled fion the slave raids and sought
sanctuary at Likouna. The i-land was overcrowded, and though some still
had gardens on the eastern shoe ot the lake, it could barely produce:
enough food. '...-
Of late years. ac the country has become more settled, a number ot
families have r-tiited to th-ir original homes, and now (1904) the
population certainly does not exceed 2.sX soul<.
The island was clos:n as the site of a European station mainly on
the same ground of safety, though the excellent harbour was another
reason. It- barienniess is ai great disadvantage. All firewood, timber
grass, and bricks for building, aiid most of the food for native school
boys, have to be brought from the mainland by boat. Fruit trees growiS

very slowly, and bear little fruit, but there is one. mango, and there ire a
few lime trees. In order to maintain a proper garden bed. loam has3 to
be brought over by boat from the mainlad. and this scarrc.-l repays the
trIable ; it is a bettor plan to maintain a garden on the mainlaand and bring
over the fruit.

Bishop Hornby, who arrived in April, 1893, had poor health, and was
invalided home in February, 1894, and l.ter in the year he resigned.
But, making nil allowances, the health record was bad. Mes.rr. G. H. I.
all had a good deal of '" fever." and IMr. L was invaihded after frequent
fevers in 19S'.. Mr. M. died in May, 1..','4, after a. year in Afria froin
" remittent fever with ,xhaustion and lihyperprexia." Mr. N. had black-
water fever about June, 1S04, after fourteen monthly' resideti:e, and a
second attack from w lich lie died in January, 19''3. Miss O. had ilack-
water fever alter two year. in O.itolber, 1 .'.., and wn~ invalided home:
In August and Septemler. I.'..-, three, acci'-ntal deaths occurred ;
the Rev. U. W\. Atlay was killed by the Maguwaanvwara, and Bishop Miples
and 3i1. J: William- were drow.i'd in thli, l.ike. Thie-e losses. together
with similar ones in the Zanzibar di:.,ese, caused great uneasiness at homrn,,'.
The Medical Bo'ard was constituted, .inl intending candidate.- wei.
henceforth examined b-lfore Ieling ;o:'elit'fl. Acting on the advice of
Bishop Hornby, they further iirg-ed that stone dwellhig-liouse- -hould be
built, throughout. the Misioii.
i896-1898.-These moie reasonable ideas gradually made themselves
felt at Nyasa : stone houns V rer,! begun, the attempt to liv- ,an :etic
life, or to live like thi_ n.-tive~., wa- gra.'lduly abandoned, and there was
a more general acceptance of the laws of health, although little was. vet
known. of the 'pe:ial precaution, against malaria wlhioh should be ob-
servedil. These ideas, however, ,only won their way gradually, and a 0o-d
deal of carelessness and loolhardiune,; iemainel:
In 19i:, the Rev. P. E. Fiulkuer % aq invalided after two .-ttack- of
blackwater fever in less than a year. Nur-e P. had fair health, but wag
supposed to hav\' had a slihlit attack of blackvater f avei after onii v.ear
residence (June, I."W0). Mis. Ellershaw died from blac:kwater lever after
twenty months (dtlIing .-hich time cli,: had frequent i-evers) in July'. 1397.
Mr. A. Dutton, who worked on the C('hails ,./itoi at Likoan, Iiad
frequent attacks of fever, and aftei two and a quarter years hald blick-
water fever, and two montlih later a second attack from -lwhich he died
September, 13I.7:
In February, 1897, Nurse Q. was invjided home after four months
as constitutionally uuhtted. Nure R. a invalidl-l. after ten months on
account of prolonged pyrexia four mi:'nthis later she (intracted1 black-
water fever in England.
When this nurse was invalided, the only other lady had to go home with
her, and the station was again crsed for ladies. and it was dec-ided to build
sufficient stone dwelling-houses fr.,i th'-m before they returned.

Duting thi p.c-ri,.l there .S. thi. most r.m-arkable improvement in
health. There wirn: It:. deati-. No one wasi invalidedil id there were no
cas's of bl.ackwater fev,'-r among the workers at Likonia. A similar
gentiiial iumpriv.enmilt t.I:,k llaic' throughout th[ whi.]e dioc.'-e.
Th i irrovemnt i partly accounted tor by the fact that the period
of pir.ntelt v.c.k wa. fi, tihe mst pii t ,at an end. The country "as settled,
tra.nsp:ot arrangement- were hbtt:r and mi..re regular. .s' that supplies
tand 9stoi,- couhl I' mI.ze I t-ihl r.l.tained. This iindeo it ea'ior to maintain
and further inll.r,,v the gene-rai standard 4f ii ing. A somewhat similar

Protecturatit, arn.ng-t -icials and traders ail.:e, whereas tlie years 1897

But another an1 ni're- far-rrea':iing c:aine i, to be found in the fact that
the r-c:-or'inien'l.tions of I he Medic:al B,.rid were being cairied out. There
w\asa rigorous i.x;iiIalatio:n (.t tandidates before they were pasted for work

furlough should take place at lie end of the first two years of completed
.-ervic? in Africa instead ,*f at tht end of the third year, as heretofore, came
into o.peiation. Further. the recnmrniendatirun as ti housing had been, onI.
were in process rf L.eing, carried out, and speaking generally theie was ,
gleat deciea-e in foolhardilles., and a eal attempt on the part of members i
of the 3.11s',on t.( Ive in a manner suited to a tropical county.

Again, satisfactory hospital accommodation was provided and an ade-
quate nursing staff was mraintaimed, with thl, result that patients were
regularly nursed during attacks of fever, instead of being encouraged to
ignore them as had previously too often been the case
Lastly, great and far-reaching .l~ecoveiieo were made in the scieutilic
world, which demon-lute d the meani- by whichli: malarial fever was propa-
gated, and indicated the special precautions, which should be adopted in
order to guard against it.
The gain to tlie Misisei.n by this improved health record is unidoibt'edly
very great. Member hav,: lheen able to carry on theii work with little ,
interruption from rilne-s. A\l-o. wlien they hLve arrived home from
furlough, they have beeu fur the most part in good iheLth This laItter
point should enable them to be better alilo to undertake work for tih.
Misqir i) while in Englind, and also to spend l:ss time on furlough than
has hitherto been 'custom.ry ; while tlie nii'.:ouragiim,.:i't v. lhi'h it gives to
friends and relations is a matter not to be lo-t sight of.
Turning to con:irle- this period in more detail, we may di\ vide it into) tv.o
1899-1901 .-(',,mpared with nall pre' iou records the health of this period
was remarkably good. There wag a large number of n.'w leinbers who
were. quite unaccliinatized, and ill of thl-,e suffered from occasion \i attack-s
of malaria, but the cases wewe for the most part of slight .*r moderate
severity and yielded readily to proper medical treatment and uurjing.
Three members. suffered from frequent attacks, but only for portion of
their time (viz.. about six inoirths). Two old members of th: lMis-iin had
indifferent health, but they had both somewhat nver.tayed thir tume, and
were not inclined to take- precaution;.
Incidentally it may be mentioned that. two cases of iriti- oc'uored as
complications of malarii, possibly i true mjalarial iritu<. In neither cas .
did permanent damage rsoniit.
1902-1903.-The health record during these two years wa-, .uit ex.'
exceptionally good. There .'r-e no ,severe attacks of malaria. and
alhnost all uteniben had long period- of perfectly good h alth.
(Mr. T., who remained on during the lirst nine monthly, of J1902, was, the
only member hlio had bad health.) Probably this linarkably good
record is partly accidental jnd niiit likely to continttue on quite the samein
level; it is partly accounted foi by thie very small rainfall of these years,
materially reducing the number of mosquitoes ; but it is also to be hoped
thaiti. is partly due to the recognition of the recent dis'.overie.s with regard
to aldatia and their application to the Mission station; and the benefit.
resuftinf from this -latter cause should be permanent.

They are- perlistent i, their attac:ls, and oftuin bite in housPe or on the

Anopheles are uev,-r se-i.n on the station iu l.irge numbers. They appear
allither later in th., wet #-insl, at the end of February w1 the beginning
of Mart,-h, and are olb'.er\ed occaziona:lly iup till May or June. They seem
specially prone to enter houu.s at night after lights are uit, and most of
those observed have been caught remaining in houses iu the morning.

The native dwellings in, coinnie'ti,.i i .lith .uch tii etl..ilislii ent would be
best placed at K on the utietr sile ot the srtreal, as this would reduce the
number of stream-bred anopheles that would be likely to ieacli the Euro-
