State Health Board Suggests
Take Every Precaution
Prevent Infection.
(Oregon Stnto Hoard of Health)
Peel and mouth dlnoasu Is an
neiitu and highly commuiilcnblo In
fection which occurs chlufly lu cattlo
nnd other cloven-hoofed uulmnls.
Tho vlrua of this disease Is of his
toric Interest, since It wns thu first

will pass through poros of tho finest
of fillers, mid hcIoiiUhIs nro not uhlo

the microscope. It Is ossonllnlly a
dlituase of cattle, but It also attacks
sheop and nwlno. lu cattlo It causes
small, fine blisters lu thu mouth nnd
oil the skill between tho hoofs,
There Is a characteristic "slobber
lug," a licking and smacking of tho
lips as though tho animal wero at
tempting to rid Itself of foreign
material adhering to tho sldo of tho
mouth. Lameness frequently occurs.
Tho animal suffers a loss of appetite,
emaciation and a marked diminu
tion In tho quantity of milk, Moro
rarely tho eruption appears on tho
udder, and It in this localization that
Is chiefly responslbto for tho virus
In tho milk. Tho time that tho dis
ease appears nftor Infection In from
two to nix dnys. The dtsoaso has n
very low mortality, generally from
1 to .1 per cent, but Its highly In
fectious naturo makes it of tho high
economic Importance. Tho nttack
lasts normally from ten to twenty
days, hut has boon known to con
tinue for a year. It has been known
to continue for a yoar. It has been
demonstrated in tho recent opldemlc
In California that this disease Is not
easily contorlled, anil radical meas
ures, therefore, must bo taken to
stamp It out. Tho disease Is ex
tremely prevalent lu European coun
tries and carries grent economic loss.
The vlruo Is found In the cou-

Tho recent outbreak of typhoid
fover In Portland, traced to an In
fected milk supply nnd causing two
deaths, brings sharply to public
attention tho necessities for eternal
vigilance over milk supplies. Any
community which hits n sense of
decency and or civic prldo will en
deavor to protect Its milk nupply
so that I ta cltlzons may bo assured
or wholesome nnd naultary milk,
Is your milk supply safe-guarded?
Docs your town or city have u milk
ordinance? In It Inforced? These
nro questions of thu greatest Im
portance to your health and to tho
health of your family.
The Importance or -milk both as
a food and uh ii conveyor of dltcnso
cannot bu too greatly stressed.
Milk Is tho only standard article of
diet obtained from animal sources
eousumud In Its raw state. It con
tains, furthermore, nil thi ehHentlals
oMtnontH of a wull-uuhiMmd diet
both from ehlhlrvn nnd for ndults.
Wt (tvoryouu knows bow futdV milk
spoils, how readily It (Uviiiiijiose,
and how dllUeitlt It Is- to obtain
and deliver It In a clean, froeh. and
satisfactory condition. A striking
ehuraclorlsUe or ait Infected tullk
Is thu abHonoe of any trfgu where
by Infection mm ho recognized. Tho
milk may bo porfoetly normal lu
apponrauoo mid lu taste, yot tu
full of typhoid or diphtheria germs.
Milk usually becomes Infected
tri'in hnmnii sources. Contamina
tion may recur at any point on the
n ! from tho furui to the consumer
but It most frequently takes place
nt tho dairy. This Is particularly
truo or typhoid rover. Investigation
or many mllk-boruo epidemics or
typhoid fever ban shown tho sources
of thu Infection to bo typhoid car
riers A carrier Is a person who, not
III himself, hnrborn tho dlseano germ
and may transmit tho dlsoaso to
others. Laboratory tests nlono can
dotoct carrlors, All persons, thero
foru, engaged in tho handling or
milk or milk products, should bo
tested for carriers. This test should
bo made compulsory.
