Following is the complete discuts-
lion of the disease as given by:Dr.
l=adgley:
"Every summer, but especially dur-
ing the months of August and Septem:n-
ber, epidemics of infantile piaralysis
occur in some section Or setions of
the country. Generally, only a few
caises develop in each locality,, but
a o t e e y ffh y a ,a m c moeextesive epidemic occurs, producing a
far greater number of cases locall$'
and appearing in many more centers.
Such an epidemic has been active
throughout the country this summer.,
Fortunately there are now indications
that the epidemic is on the wane.
"Since 1I40, infantile paralysis has
been closely studied by the medical
profession. A great many facts have
been ascertained concerning the na-
ture of the disease, itsu epidemic char-
a cteristics, and. the av enues through
which it is transported.
"It has been definitely proved to be
caused by an infecting agent, but the
organism, or virus as it is called, does
not lend itself to study by present day
methods. So far the virus has only
been found in man or monkey, and
does niot respond to laboratory meth-
cds of culture. The virus is found in
the throat of the affected individual
or of healthy individuals who though
not affected by it may still carry it to
other individuals who' are suspectible.
A very careful study of the various
epidemics, points' to the. huihan car-
rier as tre means of spreadting the
Sdisease, and rarely" insects or animals.
Recently contaminated milk has
seemed .to play a part in the spread.

paralysis is a common disease, likened

?mortality rate froin intutmnie paralysis
in the larger epideIinhi:s is abot10
per cent. The perecentage;c of paralytic

Stages of Treatment.
"Thle treatment of the disease is di-
vided into three stages. The acute
stage, the stage of muscle tenderness,
requires isolation, absolute rest with
proper support (If the affected parts.
Massage, exercises, electrical stimu-
lation are harmful during this stage.
