What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

[Contributed to THE AGE.] To prevent the various filth -diseases and their fatal effects, at Qiis season of the year, it seems appropriate and almost incumbent upon us tó consider the various methods of disinfection and means to be employed to ward off impending danger. Want of cleanli- ness makes disinfection a necessity. Of personal cleanliness we should not be expected to speak - but, the more cleanly the community the .less in- fection will find a foothold. Disin- fection means the prevention, or the arresting, of the formation of disease germs; whether in the body or in the condition of the community, or during an epidemic of contagious or infec- tious diseases; and, the treatment of all form of filth and uncleanliness in communities or districts where the authorities have not the power or means to prevent or remove the ac- cumulations, antiseptics, by prevent- ing or arresting the chemical processes which precede and accompany the biological processes, serve to limit and 'control the spread of infection which would occur Without them , , and thus they become true disinfectants, though in the proportions used they may not be germicide, or by preceding texerms may have none to kill.” In considering the subject of puri- fying agento, it will be my purpose to mention • some of the various articles used, and in some instances to emote from the standard authorities in this country and England in regard to the effectiveness of the different chemi- cals. The subject is rendered well nigh inexhaustible, from the fact that. as cities and towns increase in popu- lAation, the tendency to filth becomes greater, from the amount of offal, garbage, and refuge of all kinds which js allowed ,to accumulate, perhaps from Carelessness, or more likely, from the meagre means employed by the proper authorities to remove the same. l No-one will deny the fact that sub - off -hand, be made wholesome by dis- ittauce employed as a 'corrective is perfect. We know that heat will destroy certain matter. tain chemicals will do the same, thus preventing' Or annihilating the pewee of infection. So, in the 'sick room or hospital, we can imitate this, and with great skill and care so treat with heat or other disinfectants every article hailed by a patient, and thus prevent, in a great roe, at least, any spread of - dan- ger. Unless the local, authorities are active; and coöpenste with . us in the removal of the cause of infectious diseases, we, as physicians and chem- ists, can do little save smoulder the. fire which will soon break forth with increased violence, at a time when . it will be,. perchance, too late to save many a life, sacrified for the *ant of proper action at a season when all pollution could have been removed without risk, and the sanitary condi- tion Of the city so improved that ' cases of filth -diseases would be . the I I rarity, instead of the every day re;• port of the physician. The great essential is cleanliness; and the sanitary authorities, provided they act promptly, can reduce to some extent the mortality. As the animal \ body deals in its working's with the refuse of its actions, so must the city • deal with the • dross which daily ac- cumulates and spreads sickness and I death throughout its limite. To pre- vent pestilence, all effete matter should, and must, be removed inoffensively and continuously, and due care exer- cised In the selection of the locality ,4 e hat is to become, in time, the one spot in our midst, destined to \smell laud to heaven\ for we may inadver- tently start a bot -bed of noxious and 'offensive effluvia which will' strike down unsparingly all who are so un- fortunate as to be placed_within its reach. By infectious diseases, we,. mean all diseases which are , communicabfe from ne to another, 'either by actnal conta , by some agency, as water or air. Many of these we will ex- clude—such as various skin diseases, for they do not properly come within - the scope of this parier, they not af- fecting communities in an epidemic form. Therefore we will consider such preventive measures or protec- . tive means as apply tO that class of disemei tenned zymotic, as entail - pox, cholera typhus fever, enteric ; fever, scarlet fever, meaNles. and the like. First of all. wherever there is an accumulation of filth house refuse. or decaying organic matter, the nui - sauce should receive prompt attention. Foul odors mu:41)e corrected prior to any attempt at removal: and in 'trans- ferring -the offensive heaps Irr the -con- tents of vaults t* cesspools to the carts or wagons, some deodorizer is essential in preventing the contamina- tion of the atmosphere. For this pur- pose various chemicals_ joight be named; as. for example, copperas. chloride of lime, coal -tar. or dry earth might be used. The mast effective. I perhaps, is chloride of lime, which is both cheap and easily used. A pound • of this agent dissolved in water will suffice for a thousand gallons of sew- age..

The solution of chlorinated soda was first brought to notice ateis disinfectant • by Labaraque. It is powerful, and better suited for use in the sick room and for disinfection on a small scale than chlorinated lime. It is of great ad- vantage sprinkled on the floor or bed aud added to the wedeln intended to receive the excretions. Chloride of zinc, or Burnett's disinfecting fluid,' derives its virtue from the presence of chlorine; while it destroys putrid odors, it is itself odorless. Chlorine is -ene of the most valuable agents in the list of disinfectants. The only objection to it is its odor and the irritation when inhaled. It is said that Abernethy referred to the chlor- ine deodorïzieet'irbett be said: \They are sometimes very useful, very use- ful tndeed, for they make suds an abominable stink that the patient is obliged to have the windows opened.\ Any of these salts placed in districts containing decomposing remains, will do much to prevent sickness, but en- tire removal of offending substances will alone insure safety. Sulphate of iron, in proportion of a pound to a gallon of water, is efficacious in many instances, but not 80 active as the former. Charcoal is a powerful doo - dc rant, but there is no evidence to shOw that it has any effect in destroy- ing specific. disease germs. It oxidizes offensive effluvia and is therefore useful in purifying sewer gases or other filth emanations. ilirasto rasa in any .iiiantit> and On *hell „olive. rontnietor goal Solider. will wive time WA Money by making their purebasre in li.milder. • • also curry in Mork motion prepared to supply 11.nte, g Timber*, Bridge s,nd Dimension *trainers, Lath, ithingfes, And every deseription eeowatrurtion material.

It can be used in scrubbing floors, seeping in , fectel clothing, and in vessels for re- ceiving excreta.

But as the fumes are exceedingly dan- gerous and irritating, this method is only applicable to empty rooms; and it should not be manufactured or used except by adepts. Broniine'and iodine are each useful as ateadisPherit disin- fectants, but should not,he-tused in in- habited rooms'' The same May be said of sulphurous acid gas, which ia made by burning sulphur in an iron dish or on a shovel. It decomputtes suIphuretted hydrogen, combines with ammonia, deodorizes or destroys stinking alkaloids and probably dis- ease germs. The most popular disinfectant is carbolic acid, which is specially valu- able on account of its highly antieep- tie properties. In 'its crude form it is Terebene, oh.' been in - sulphate and potassic bichromate, possesses an agreeable odor and is applicable in all case; where disinfec- tion is required. Coudy's fluid, or permanganate of potassium, is em- ployed with advantage, but on account of its expense is not used on a large scale. Chloride of aluminum onchlor- alum possesses the. great advantage of being non-poisonous, inodoroua, and cheap. Prof. FrankliS says: \For removing teeter and effluvia, it is better and more available than any agent with which I am acquainted. In this respect it is incomparably superior to chloride of lime\. It is non-volatile, and therefore can not be regarded asan atmospheric disinfec- tant, but is useful in cleaning infected clothing and rooms, and invaluable as a sewage deodorant. irmetvern NEXT WEER r.\
