    Excerpt from Fifth Annual Report of the State Board of Health of the State of Connecticut: For the Fiscal Year Ending November 30, 1882

    Several of the State Boards of Health have been reorganized, and new powers and privileges granted. The State Board of Health of West Virginia, like that of Illinois, has the regulation of medical practice under control, and like that Board it has done a work of inestimable value in driving quackery. In all of its forms out Of the State,lan'd protecting the lives of the people from the dangers they would be exposed from uneducated and unquali; fied practitioners. A diploma is not always evidence of proper qualifications, nor can it be as long as Medical Colleges are de pendent entirely oh the fees of students. Some feeble and weak institutions will sell diplomas after a few -mor'1ths study, or the mockery of it - l-without regard to the attainments of the purchaser, or rather in disregard of his utter lack of any. And under pressure of. Various kinds in some schools, where one would expect better things, students are graduated that have the mere'st' smat tering Of a knowledge of their profession. The reports of the Boards of 'health of Illinois and West Virginia on this subject, show the magnitude of the evil there. Fortunately it is not so great here, but it is bad enough.

    From what has been accomplished by the application of sani tary principles already, it is safe to say that one-third'_ of all the deaths from zymotic diseases can be prevented. Mueh larger claims are made, but at the estimate given, the savmg of human life would be of greater value to the State than the cost of all' the sanitary improvements, a thousand fold. This estimate takes into consideration only what would result from measures of State hygiene, and the sanitary regulations of cities and towns. If the whole field be included, it is by no means a large estimate to state that fully one-third of the deaths which occur from all causes could be prevented, were the principles of sanitary science fully understood, and its laws obeyed. This, of course, involves to a considerable extent domestic hygiene, and also individual obedi ence to sanitary regulations to a certain extent; not that to secure this all vice must be abandoned, but that men should be placed in a; sanitary environment 'as_a rul-e, instead of exceptionally, which' as all experience shows of itself, tends to check vice and crime. As all evil associations are linked-together, so vice, and crime, and unsani it'ary surroundings are usually associated.
