tional bureau of health, and It has so
Krown that It' Is now one cf the most
Important of tha government undertak
ings. The hygienic laboratory consist of sev
eral large buildings which are devoted to
Research work. It contains chemical and
other laboratories,' specially fitted up,
rooms In which germs and microbes of
all kinds are reared, rooms for the test
ing of diseases through a study of ani
mals which have been infected with them
and all the machinery for modern medi
cal investigation. It would take many

I ni le Sam's Medical Zoo.
One of tho Interesting features of the
laboratory is its study of human dis
eases through animals of one kind or
other. Indeed, In one respect the Institu
tion might be called Tncle Sam's Medi
cal Zoo," for It has colonies of animals
w;hleh tho Kovernment keeps on hand In
rdr that it may investigate through
them tho diseases with which man is
ffltctcd. These animals are Inoculated
with human Mood taken from nersona
Who have certain diseases. They thus
istrh the diseases and through them the
dlBcafes are studied and Invextlgated.
The hick animal is given drue after drug
in order that tho rl(,-lit ono fur this spe
cial ailment may be discovered. Hm-h
ariimnls are carefully wat'lied, their
symptoms w limed, and, If necessary,
they are killed and cut to pieces to ascer
tain tlio oriKlu and course of the disease
and bow it may be contiollc 1 as it affects
Amoim llm animals utod fur this pur
pose, are tfuluta pl'S, mbbits, mice and
monkeys. We are I'uld to be descended
from tlio monko and the monkey is the
nearest to-man In its muke-up. Jt Is only
lately that it has been und In such In
vestigations, but it is proving to be of
mormons Miluo. At present the govern
ment has on hand about three n.oro of

They have well ventilated .houses, heated
by steam, and the beet of food that can

feeding the monkeys. The little animals
were given pananas, bread, nuts and such
other tilings as they specially like. The
guinea pigs are kept fat on guinea pig
dainties and the rabbits rejoice- In green
lettuce and cabbage. The animals are kept
In perfect health and as far as possible
In good spirits In order that the dlsoase

Monkeys with Mraslea.
Among the special human Ills which
Uncle Sam U now investigating Is
measles. He Is doing this through mon
keys which have been given tho, measles.
Last June the llrltlsh medical bureau
stated that John Howard McKadden, the
cotton magnate, who has given iihicIi
money for tho Investigation of cancer, Is
about to turn his attention to the measles.
It stated that the research would be under
taken in London, and I am told that un
appropriation of perhaps 1000,000 Is to be
used for this Investigation. In the mean
time our government scientists, by means
of , tho monkeys, have made the dis
coveries 'which - the 'StcFadden Institute
proposed to make, uml that at no addi
tional cost to I'ncle Ham.
During '.ny visit to the hygenlc labora
tory today I had a lung chat with Dr.
John V. Atiderson, tho director, who In
connection with Dr. .Joseph Cu'dberKcr,
his assistant, has been carrying on the
lueaslea Investigations. ' IT. ' Anderson is
known for his remarkable success In re
search work. I to lias done much in
typhoid fever, pellagra and infantile
parulvb.s. He has made many discoveries
as to the effect of toxins and aiitl..toins,
and as to t,he bacteria found in milk und
the bai'lili which cause consumption.
He tclis me that It was some time be
fore they were able to give the measles to
the monkeys. The experiment had been
attempted In Kugland and elsewhere, but
had failed. At our national laboratory,
however, the. blood or serum used to in
oculate the ruonkejs was taken from the
human patient nt just the time that the
rash was coming out or was about to
come out. It curried the disease, und
from this und other experiments we now
know .1u:a when measles are Infectious.
The first monkeys were Inoculated June
S of last year. Ten days later they began
to be feverish, and an erupthn c.nne
out upon them. Just as it does on a
child. The little animals developed nil
the symptoms of liumun measles and the
dineasa acted the mime way. Now when
tlio disease Was JuJt at t lie riht point
certain of these monkeys weie killed
and their blood was used to inoculate
l'.t-h monkeys. The monkeys so inoc
ulated took thf measles und a third
set of monkeys inoculated with their
blood took ti c measles likewise.
Pander lo School ( lillilren.
Prom these i.d othpr cases Dr. Ander
son funis tl..".t the period of iijfectlvlty
from the measles, ns far as the monkey
Is concerned, begins about il.e fourtn
day after he rate-lies ti e disease, and that
it disappears as somi as the eruption j
has passed away ami the temperature i.f
the patient becomes noiiuul. It mut be ,
:! same with humans, but as it is now. i
nl.i'l a child lias the ine.is.lea it Is kept
out of school for comething like three
weiis. Thfse investigations show that
Uvche or flftien dayV tinin ! all that is
necehsaiy. and it Is probable that a less
period would be safe. 1'.." disease ii
communicated from man to man, or,
rather, fiom child to ihlid. for it Is to a
hirg" extent a child's disease, l.y means
of the secretions which rump from the
n o und mouth. Certain monkeys which

and other secretions are mixed with the
dust of the street and thus taken into
tho system. For this reason children
with the measles should be warned
Mndlra of Infantile Paralalia.
Among others of the recent Investiga
tion of the hygenlo laboratory Is infan
tile paralysis. This dread disease Is like
the mcijflcs in that It usually attacks
little children. It is a disease of the
spine, which paralyzes the chi either
in part or in certain of Its members,
and whlrh often causes death. In Sweden
out of C92 cases of .children under II,
seventy-one died and In Massachusetts in
628 cases the Htate Hoard of Health
found that 16 per cent of the babies ot
less than ono year failed to recover.
Among the others, who got partially well,
four had one thigh and leg paralysed,
eight. hud legs paralyzed and a number
had a leg, arm and other members made
dead, as it were.
Infantile paralysis Is not a new dlseaso.
Kvidences of U have been found in an
Egyptian mummy which Is almost C.000
years old, and It has long existed In Eu
rope. Thero have been a number of out
breaks of It In various parts of the.
I'nlted States within the last few years.
Massachusetts had ono In 1K07, 1W,
and 1010, Michigan one In i:)7 and lm
l'cuiisylvanla one in J3h, and Oregon,
South Dakota and Virginia were afflicted
with it during the same year. It was
In 11' 10 that It broke out here at Wash
ington, resulting In MS cases and about
sixteen deaths. The youngest caso was
only 4 mouths old and the oldest 6-1
In studying this disease there have been
many attempts to give it to guinea pigs,
rubbits, horses, sheep, dogs, cats, chick
ens, ducks and pigs. They have all fulled,
but it has now been discovered that It
can be given to the monkey, und also
that a monkey which has had the dis
ease onto cannot be given the disease
ugaiii. It has been found that a serum
from tho diseased monkeys will arrest
tho progress of tho disease lifter ll has
developed, und inoiiki vs huve been nc
clnutcd with this ami thus made Immune.
It may bo that this taccinatlou Mill some
iImv bo extended to children.
lufaiitilo paralysis is found lo couio
from a germ, but this germ Is so small
that It will go through a none filter.
The scientist. huo macerated the spinal
coril of a monkey having lite disease and
huvu pa.-sed tho water containing tills
through such a filter. A drop of the
water which canio from the f.lter was
then injected into another monkey, and
It got infantile paralysis.
Jl Is ulso found that the secretions from
the noses of the Infected monkeys are
Infei lions und it Is believed all the
secreltons of tin; nose and mouth aie
likewise so. Tliis Indicates that the
disease may bo transmitted from one per
son to another by direct contact and that
it Is contagious.
I'ellncra tomes from Italy,
Another terrible disease which is caus
ing much cxcltcpn nt lu certain sections
of tho 1'nit. il Staten Jusi now is pellugia.
This. In the Words of Surgeon General
Wyman, Is "a veritablo scourge In pans
of iurope." Ji is found lu Flurmicc,
Italy, und Koumania, and It occurs also
lu r-paln and Tpper Kgypt. In certain
parts of Italy as many as to per cent
of the people have the disease, and jo
per cent of these ate mentally af fecit d.
I'cllagra lias only recently come i )
Atnerb a. It first broke out in the south
ern states, but It Is now found as far
nuith as riilludelpbia. It Is estimated
that we have something like I'.hiji cases
of it. Once taught it lasts u long time
During the present eur the laboialory
has been attempting to give monkeys
peilagru. It lias taken tho blood and
spinal fluid of pellagra putlunts and in
jected them into the blood of these little
animals. Dr. Iaivinder has done the same,
but so far their experiments have not
been successful, ulthoiiKli valuable nnfor
matiou lias been obtained.
Typhoid Mary und Mrs. .
Some of the most Interesting work of
L'liclo Sam's hygienic laboratory bus iu
lated to U phold fever. Tho eorpa of d.n -tois
here are ready to re-pond lo Hoy cull
from a typhoid epidemic provided e
state or city when; the typhoid Is makes
the cull. At such times liny go to u,,..
the epidemic an I lm ... i U.lte (H
was discovered that she bad hud tM'boid
fever eighteen ycMt s pi e lunsly. Mm was
bactet liilogieitllv examined ami It was
shown that she still had typhoid bacilli
in her. She was loaded with them und
was giving tlieni out all the time. When
she wssheil the pans or handled the milk
rhe unknowingly mixed sonic of these
death-dealing bacilli with the products
nf her cows, mul In duo time they were
taken Into the stomachs of the consumer.
In short, fifty-four rases of typhoid
we-e directly traced to her. I say Dint
had tlie dairymen who boucht thin milk
pasteUrixed It before delivering It lo their
customers this treatment would have de.
stroyed the bacilli and the outbreak of
typhoid could not have occurred. .

'I'hn preai-rlpttun can he filled at any well- ato.-kiil drug atora. Any druggift ran order of
bacillus, and without tills Is present It
cannot cxiet. tine might eat bad fish or
bud meat which did not contain this
bacillus and In such euses he could not
have typhoid fever. However, this little
being exists In most forms of sewage, it
multiplies at an enormous rate, and It
goes forth on Its career of destruction
like an army with banners. II Is not true
that It Is common in oysters, although it
sometimes comes from such nhell fish as
have been taken from the salt water and
laid In brackish water to make them
swell up and look large.
The great danger of Infection from ty
phoid fever lies entirely In that which
comes from the patient when he Is in
certain stages of the disease, and as a
rule this danger disappears as soon as
the man recovers. It has been found,
however, that there are certain human
beings who are bacillus carriers. They
are loaded with typhoid and other dis
eases; but the dlseaso lias no effect upon
them and they keep In health. Hy dis
ease mean that they linve In them mul
titudes of the bacilli which cause the ills
ease. One case of this kind was that of
a cook known as "Typhoid Mary." She
went from place to place uml wherever
