brief article under the caption "Possibili

Oft Dr. R. W. Connell, and though late,
I ask spaed to call' attention to the fal

(Somb years ago I studied medicine until
I found out the urisclentlflo nature or
Its theories and' consequent methods ot
healing. ' I then promptly gaVe It up.
Dr. Connell , Is represented as urging
upon Omaha pleasure seekers to ask for
"ImmtlhW'lng doses of typhoid bacterln"
before setting out for their vacation.
Atsumlng this recommendation to bo cor
rect, I. do not hesitate' to declare It a
deltislqn, and Indirectly a decided menace
tJ the public health.
Serums and vaccine therapy belong to
the superstition of r the dork ages, simply
modernized by a mpro refined. technique.
The theory of tho serum treatment Is
that there ore certain .organisms lq the
body which have the power ot, rendering
It Immune from disease germs, but that
sometimes those protective .organisms
are weak and unable to overcome tho
pathologic or disease Kcrrns, th,e .serums
are then supposed ,to aid tho feeble pro.-,

Dr. Frledmann had the very last "euro"

' It Is to be .hoped that tho Omaha vaca
tionists will display their intelligence- by
avoiding polluting their bodies with filthy
terurhs, and at tbo same time save
their money. If Dr. Connell had
really desired the health of the peo
ple, ho would have cautioned against
tho drinking of well or cistern water
except as " to tea or - coffee, but to
drink milk, and especially avoid consti
pation, living- largely on Juicy fruits. But
then, there would be no fees In that ad
vice. Should 'you take the "immunizing

very likely get typhoid all the same, as
you will be under tlie false impression
tha't you will' bo really secure frpm con
