From several Investigations that liavo been made by the National As sociation for the Study and Preven tion of Tuberculosis , it Is estimated that on an average about fifteen per cent , of the prison population of the country Is afflicted with tuberculosis. On this basis , out of the 80,000 prisoners - ers housed In the penal institutions of the United States at any given time , not less than 12,000 are infected with this disease. If the Philippine islands and other Insular possessions were taken into consideration the number would bo much larger. Some of the prisons of Pennsylvania , Kan sas and Ohio show such shocking conditions \ ditions with reference to tuberculosis that many wardens admit that these places of detention are death traps. Similar conditions could bo found in almost every state , and in the major ity of cases the only sure remedy Is the destruction of the old buildings and the erection of new ones. Game.
