And if In addition to this It can put

the prevention and cure of d seasi s am

reduction of the death rate Is one ol
the encouni's'iiig lucid' ills of modern
civilization. The present generation
has m-i-u tho yellow feer stamped out
In its Cuban breeding places and 8.

cities of the land. There can be im
question of the f net n ml no doubt t ' i . . 1
tho chief causes lie iu the better stand
