Cleanlineia cover tha whola field
of sanitation. It la tha beginninf and
the end. TJncleanlineas is ons of the
dead licit of removable causes ef dis
ease. Filth is dangerous because it ,
may contain the germs of disease. 1
Cleanness or absence of dirt is not ,
merely an aesthetic adornment, but
is above all a sanitary safeguard of
importance which has been learned
by hard experience. Personal clean
ness fi more important than public
cleanness. Avoidance of personal
filth is far more necessary than for
example cleanness of streets, back
yards, and the like.
And yet it must be remembered
that public supplies are public dan
gers. A polluted water supply may
infect no matter how scrupulously
clean the residents of a city may be
with respect to their persons.
An adequate water supply is abso
lutely necessary for the preservation
of health. No obstacle should be plac
ed in the way of providing the com
munity with pure water supply. One
of the most important uses of water
is probably its cleansing properties.
Super-cleanliness is the first step to
ward efficient disease prevention.
Clean bodies and clean clothes are
essentials of personal hygiene. Clean
liness is promoted by perspiring
prior to bathing. The function of
the skin in removing waste -matter
is not great, but a healthy skin de
mands frequent bathing. Warm clean
sing baths followed by a cold show
er or swim stimulate a normal indiv
idual and increase his resistance to
The importance of washing the
hands before meals csnnot be too
forcibly carried home to every indiv
idual. There is an accumulation of
filth and infection in almost every
type of work and health demands that
everything that touches the food sup
ply shall be absolutely clean. The
hands, face, and finger nails should
be kept clean, especially before meals.
Internally; water it valuable in
that it promotes elimination. Water
is the great solvent and carrier of
material from place to place in the
body. Blood is nearly all water and
carries food and oxygen to the mus
cles, brain, etc., and waste matter
from the kidneys and lungs. Your
blood demands a continuous supply
of water. If sufficient water is not
provided constipation will result. The
improvement in individuals who hab
itually drink little water is often re
markable when they systematically
drink water in sufficient amount".

How much water should an average
normal person drink in a day? A
good rule Is six glasses, one on ris
ing, one at eacn meal, one in the
forenoon and one in the afternoon.
Larger amounts should of course be
taken when freely perspiring. Free
water drinking between meals and
when the stomach is empty especially
before breakfast, will do much to
prevent constipation and assist in ef
