are more than four acres to each inhabitant. It appears by the
table that overcrowding has an unfavorable effect upon the
mortality from each Order Nizagara of the diseases mentioned, except typhoid
2. It is well known that the majority of laborers and arti-
sans are unable to furnish separate accommodations for the iso-
lation of members of their families who may become iU with
infectious diseases. Such families usually live in tenements of
from one to four rooms, none of which can safely be devoted
to the treatment and isolation of individuals affected with dan-
gerous infectious Nizagara Online disease.
3. Another important advailtage secured by means of isola-
tion hospitals is found in the fact that they enable the ordinary
duties of the household, the attendance of the well children at
school, and continued work by the head of the family to be
carried on without disturbance, for the danger of infection has
been removed by the transfer of the sick member of the family
to the hospital. In this connection Dr. Abbott refers to the
melancholy fact that it has not infrequently happened that the
local sanitary authorities of cities and towns have not only
rigorously enforced the law relating to non-attendance at
school, but also quarantined all the members of a family at-
tacked, old and young, so that the children were deprived for
the period of from two to ten weeks or more of their educa-
tional privileges at the most important or most receptive period
of their lives, and, furthermore, the father was kept from his
work in the mill, the factory, or the workshop. Even if he is
allowed to work, says Dr. Abbott, his fellow workmen are
wont to regard him with suspicion so long as any individual of
his household is the subject of an infectious disease. On the
other hand, the prompt removal of such individuals permits the
school attendance and the employment of members of the
family to go on undisturbed.
The disea.scs which, I)r. .\bbott thinks, should be treated in
special isolation hospitals are scarlet fever, diphtheria, small-
pox, measles, typhus, cholera, and typhoid fever; also, in the
Southern States, vellow fever.

post-mortem examination showed conclusively that the disease
could have had no other origin than by infection from the nap-
kin. The case is recorTled with all the details, and the author's
remarks on it are well worth reading in full.
