The office of Milk Investigations of the United States Public Health Service, in a recent report, listed forty-two milk-borne outbreaks of infectious disease, reported from fifteen states for the year 1835. There were sixteen epidemics of typhoid fever, totalling 172 cases with fourteen deaths. Septic sore throat, in nine reported outbreaks, caused an estimated total of 1,000 cases, of which seven terminated fatally. In seven epidemics of gastroenteritis, traced to dairy products, cases of illness numbered 372. Six outbreaks of food poisoning, due to milk, cheese or cream were responsible for 362362 cases. There occurred in addition, two epidemics of paratyhoid fever (50 cases), one of scarlet fever (5 cases) and one of dysentary (131 cases). Typhoid carriers were regarded as the source of infection in eight instances and active cases In six of the milk-borne epidemics of typhoid fever, recorded for 1935. Improved sanitary conditions and app«:cations of the various methods known to modern science will reduce to a minimum the possibility of milk- borne disease. Milk is the best of foods. The more generous use of milk, adequately safeguarded, is strongly recommended. • • • Don't Make Sense Northwood Anchor: It has been discovered that Thomas Campbell, once known as the owner of "the largest farm in the world," received AAA benefit payments of $22,325.82 in two payments for not raising his usual-sized crop of wheat on land partially leased from the federal government at reduced rent. One can see why that would have to be in carrying out a crop reduction program but some way It Is difficult to reconcile it with common sense. • • • Don't Be Too Sure Atlantic News: The feeling is abroad on every hagd that Iowa Is going to get back into the republican column in November. Confidentially many leading democrats hold to this belief. Fred Timm, looking nt the newly plowed streets, remarked that if someone hnd sown oats down the main drag by this time Hoover's prophecy that we would see "green growing in the streets" under a democratic administration might have come true. • • • And then there is the case which caused Gene Neville so much fun. It seems one of the local mtd- morning Scotch coffee customers paid for his coffee at the counter, and then absent-mindedly again as he went by the cash register. Gene thinks there is a good case of mental disintegration there. • • • France builds the Normandle. Germany builds the Hlndenburg. England builds the Queen Mary. Italy builds an African Empire.

We appreciate having the matter brought to our attention in a pleasant manner; a check for $1.40 more of the same advertising has been returned to the company, and further advertising refused. Similar cooperation on the part of local firms, and their employees, and honest and true efforts to keep local business at home, will bring results. But don't preach one thing and do another. • • • Time Is taking tto toll among die canine family as well as the human. Don Akre's faithful old dog, "Pug", is getting very feeble. Many classes of high school students recall with real emotion the faithful marching of "Pug" with the high school band during football games, and his allegiance at all times, in a well mannered way, to the school colors and the young men and women with whom his master was associated. • • • Famous Last Una—Dancing on the new imveinent the Fourth of July. Weekly Health Message Mularia Is Mosquito-Borne Malaria occurs more frequently in Iowa than most people realize. The disease affects children and adults who have not travelled away from home or left the borders of the state. Prevalence, greatest during the summer months, is favored by damp weather. For centuries, malaria, which literally means "bad air" was regarded as air borne. This disease is now known to be caused by a living agent demonstrable by the microscope and spread by certain species of anopheline mosquitoes. Healthy, red blood cells w.ien seen under the microscope, are circular in outline, uniform in color and appear empty. In 1878, Laveran, a French army surgeon, began u careful study of the blood of malarial patients. He observed spherical bodies containing pigment In some of the red blood corpuscles. Some of the spherical bodies had whip- like projections which were active and very much alive. In 1880, Laveran announced that these microscopic bodies were living parasites and the cause of malaria. During the years which followed, other workers, notably Golgi of Italy, verified and extended the findings of Laveran. By 1891, improved methods of staining made possible accurate description and drawing to show the structure of the malarial parasite or plasmodium hi the blood cells of patients suffering from malaria. The part played by mosquitoes in the spread of malaria was suspected by the English physician, Sir Patrick Manson, in 1894. Ronald Ross working for yta-.'s in India, observed malarial parasites during 1907, in the stomach wall ot infected aiiopheline mosquitoes. The Italian, Grass!, showed that only mosquitoes of the genus anopheles spread human Utalarla. Manson and another volunteer in England allowed themselves to be bitten by infected ano- pheline mosquitoes, shipped from Italy. Some days later, both developed malaria, with typical chills and fever, thug demonstrating that this disease Is mosquito-borne. STRANGE and INTERESTING FACTS We suggest that you compare Ihe following treatment for madness with that described by the well known author William Seabrook in a recent series of magazine articles. The following prescription was given by a learned Medieval Monk known as Bartholomew Angli- cus, (Bartholomew the Englishman). "People afflicted with madness are perilously sick, but do not know they are sick. They must be helped at once or they will perish. They should be put upon a very scanty diet of bread crumbs wet in water. The patient's head should be shaved, then washed in lukewarm vinegar, then plastered with lungs of swine or sheep, and the temples bathed with juice of lettuce or poppy. A vein in the forehead should be bled about two ounces. If after this treatment the patient continues mad for three days without sleep there is no hope of recovery." Co-operalive Features Inc. "Honest John" Stuff Being Overworked Webster City journal: Some of Iht admirers are calling Landon "Honest Alf." No doubt he is honest, but this "Honest John", "Hon-' est Jim", "Honest Dave" stuff has been overworked and doesn't mean .1 thing. All men are honest, sometimes, especially when they have to be.
