Prevent Typhoid by Safe
Guarding Water Supplies
(From State Board of Health.)
Prior to 1903 there were no health
regulations in this state. It was
the usual thing in most of the cities
of Oregon to have two epidemics of
typhoid fever annually. In the
spring and in the fall. Physicians
in general practice drew a goodly
proportion of their income from
the care of typhoid patients. There
were no reliable records previous
to 1908 but in that year the record
was over 14 deaths for 100,000 pop
ulation or over 140 cases of typhoid
to the 100,000 population. The
economic loss from typhoid fever
ran annually into more than a mil
As a contrast read the reports for
1927 which record only four deaths
for 100,000 population or about 40
cases. This was accomplished by
an improvement of the water sup
plies under the supervision of the
State Board of Health. Every year
the inspection has been more thor
ough and the result is that there is
very little water-bourne typhoid fe

contamination of the ground and
surface water by human waste.
Rarely can water by proven abso

for the reason that the germ caus

sist In the water long enough to be
found after the epidemic has devel

which are considered very good cir
cumstantial evidence are often
found, however. Colon bacilli, for
instance, will not cause typhoid, but
when they are found in water It
really means that probably bowel
contents have reached the water
and such water is very liable to
have typhoid germs In It
Sometimes the contamination la
not continuous but intermittent, and
in such a case It may be Impossible
to prove actually by laboratory ex
periment that the water is at fault
In case the water is suspected, it Is
wrong to conclude that it Is safe
because of one or two or even more
negative laboratory reports.
Owing to the need of highly
technical supervision the water sup

A new American record for sales was established last
fall when we introduced this new Thor combination
washer and iron. Hundreds of people purchased. They
told their friends how this complete home laundry
washes clothes faster, and better, and safely, then cuts
down ironing time from hours to minutes. "Won't
you have another special sale?" these friends have
bombarded us. So here it is for the month of February
only. The lowest priced quality washer in the world
and a rotary iron that the washer motor operates-
both for the price of the average washer alone 1
