M TH* STCTSGEOH BAT ADVOCAX*.,AUGUST 3, 1910. PAGE THKXS -s- Prevention of Infantile Parnfyrit. To control the present epidemic of in­ fantile paralysis/ according to a state-* inent issued by the United States Public Health Service today, the. chain of infec­ tion between persons harboring germs of the disease and the well members of the ^community, should be broken. In­ fantile paralysis is probably caused by a very minute organism found in the na sal, mouth and bowel discharges of those who have the disease or who are carriers of the germ without themselves suffering from the ailment. All of the steps, in the spread of the infection are notknown b u t if this germ can be prevented from passing from the infected to the well per­ son, the disease will cease, Infantile paralysis is not a disease of re c e n t' origin. Sporadic : or scattered cases have occurred throughout the . country for many years b u t it is only ' during the last decade th a t the infection has assumed epid...

Work had shut down, and while walking along near the cars, and playing, he stumbled and fell against a stick which It is said was used to prop up the side of one of the stone cars, causing, the stick to give Way, and the edge of tlie car struck him i n ‘the lower'portion of the back. His older brother Elmer, who wjuis with him, succeeded in lifting enough of the weight off so that ho was able to wiggle out, but was unable to stand up. A laborer a t the quarry helped to carry the boy home, after which /he was taken to Dr. Kreitzer for an examina­ tion. No bones were foun...
