1 am glad to te.ll you these things. I find
that many persons are very much afraid of hav

they are actually present.
As a matter of fart, there are t ousnr.cts upon thousands cf persons
who have them and never know it. One meat authority says 95 per

to say this disturbance is much more common than wo imagine.

Washington — Dr. G. W. McCoy, |
director of the hygienic laboratories
of the house health service said he
had ideht Ificd p.s cerebrospinal fever
"or the disease popularly known
as meningitis or spinal meningitis,”
the malady which fatally attacked
two persons at Rocky Mount, N. C.
A greater prevalence of the.dis
ease than has existed since the
war, he added, has been reported
this winter throughout the country.
Dr. McCoy referred to the cases as
spectacular and unusual, but said
he saw no reason for alarm.
He said the disease Is caused by
an infection of the brain and spi
nal cord by an organism, the min
gococcus, the germ being strictly
a parasite of the human body.
The first epidemic of the disease
was noted in Geneva in 1805. The
next year there was an outbreak of
it in Massachusetts. In New York
In 1904 and 1905, a total of 3,455
persons died, and 6,753 were at

part of one which spread over the
world in five or six years, then be
came quiescent and did not stir
again until the World war when
there was a general outbreak. Since
the vrar the disease apparently re
mained quiescent again. Dr. McCoy
said, until last fall. "There has
been a widespread increase in prev
alence." Dr. McCoy said, “we do not
view the situation with alarm now
because, in the first place. late

Carriers, he explained, are per

but who do not succumb to It.
“We must frankly admit," he
added, “that once cerebro spinal
meningitis has become epidemic, it
cannot be stamped out. It is not
clear that any of the measures tak
en to prevent the spread of the
disease have either materially In
fluenced the course of epidemics or
prevented its spread."
Predisposing factors, such as over
exertion, depressive mental and
bodily surroundings, and catarrhal
conditions increase the likelihood
of its spread. The average number
of fatalities Is 7a per cent, but in
some epidemics it has been as low
as 20 per cult. A scrum used in
