Hookworm dissase has existed in
foreign oouulries for ceuturies but
it has beeu only a few years since
it was first discovered and found to
ibe so prevalent in America. Be
fore this it was thought that the
large nnmber of weak and pale
people were sJ because of inherited
physical defects aud could not be
cured. Now however this has been
proven not to be the case, that
most of these people are so owing
to the Hookworm infection aud cau
not only be cured but restored to
health in a remarkably short tiu-e
Hookworm disease is caused by
small worms from a quarter to a
half inch is length, resembling a
white thread. Thev attach them
selves to the inner lining of the
small bowel, suck blood, inject a
poison into the system, leave bleed

The symptoms of hookworm dis

stimulate many diseases. A very
mild case, probably, bas no symp
toms, complains of nothing and
shows no signs And in such a
cas-, the disease can be discovered
only by an examination of a por
tion of the stool with a microscope.
However, a severe case may show
one or more of the following symp
toms: ground itch, fever, headache,
indigestion, sarene-s in the abdo
meo and chest, hi art burn, dizzi

and ankles, tired feeling, forgetful

Only one treatment will be given
to a person at one time, but a sec

if necessary, will be give each suc

that you will have time to receive

are a source of infection to. other
people. During each bowel action,
maoy hookworm eggs are expelled
with the excreta, which, if deposit
ed in the soil, hatch into worms
which may infect anyone coming
in contact with the polluted soil.
How may hookworm disease be
prevented? First, by the sanitary
closets, aud the proper disposal of
the intestinal excretions, which
prevents toil pollution. Second,
by wearing shoes, which prevents
ground itch, and washing the
hands thoroughly after handling
Third, do not drink muddy wa
