See the Complete Working Model of the Pan
ama Canal on Our Fourth Floor It's Free
Tl!K story of the digging of tho I'unama I'unnl is the world's greatest romance.
When our govern men t took charge of it construction the canal was a succession
of fever infected hwnmps.
Through the magnificent work of Col. (Jorgns and his corps of brave assistants it is
now comparatively a health resort.
These men risked and some gave their lives to prove that Yellow Fever was not con
tagious, but contracted from the bite of a certain mosquito.
uh h result of their work not a case of Yellow Fever has originated in the Canal Zone
ii. the past five years.
Come, to the Fourth Floor Tuesday or any day this week and see tho reproduction of
the Canal and Canal Zone, and hear the lecturer tell you how this wonderful work
was accomplished as he points out the places to you on the model.
