HIS VIEWS ON THE SUBJECT.
Bacilli Not in the Breath But in the
Sputum-Consumptives Should be
Taught to Avoid Infeoting Others
-The Hospital a Fine Investment.
There are annually aibout three
thousand deaths from conisumpltion ill
the state of Michiganc, and tile total
nlumbter of consumpiltives living ill tlis
state at presnt is pirobahly clot less
than eighteen thousand. Each oiie of
these is a rector froli which thie dis-
,ease clay, and will, iin all humian trote-
fdbilihy, extend, to a greater or less
extent. One of tile ohjects of iii"p10-
posed hiospital is to instruict these'
pceohple how to avoid infectinig their
rliative(s aiid frienlds with tile disease
from which they suffer.
The air exhaled from tilelucngs of at
oilsuileltive is germ-fre. 'There is
the:.refore 110 danger of acquiring the'
diseaese simply from coineing inito tile
presence of alpersonisuff ering frome it.

the iiir, and to infect anlyonlesswho Imacy
Inhale it. Nosy a great saving of hif"
would he gained if these eiglhteeni
thousaind consuniptives couled he'mae~e
to recalize these facts aiid couldl he
taught how to thoroughly disinfeet the
sputom. It meay he saied thait this
could ho done hy means of pcamphcllets
or other priiitedl instructlisis dis-
tIleuted amiong the pceople'. No edouht
