All deaths from smallpox occurred in the eruptive hospital.

There were sixteen deaths during the fiscal year ending August 31, 1904, and only two deaths during the year ending August 31, 1905.

We have a model eruptive hospital, located outside of the city. It has improved water supply, modern baths and water closets, and is lighted with electricity. The location is good and the buildings are well isolated from other habitations.

The total cost of managing smallpox in the city and county, includ. ing hospital, physician, nurses, guards, food and vaccinations, for the two years covered in this report was $20,000.

The health department early became alert in the yellow fever conditions in the South, and I immediately made preparations to keep the disease out of this city, and a strict watch was kept up during the entire period of danger, and arrangements were made to take care of any cases that might come into the city or develop here. I am happy to say, however, that not a single case developed, nor was any brought here.

This department is continuing its vigorous warfare against the adulteration of food products, and great improvement is observed along this line.

While this department has accomplished a great deal of good by its activity and persistent efforts, I must admit that considerable work yet remains to be done in order to protect the health and lives of the people of this great city.

Very respectfully,

M. K. ALLEN, M. D., Health Officer.

Newport, Ky., August 31, 1905. To the State Board of Health:

Since our last published report two year ago there has been one outbreak of smallpox in this city, in the northwestern district, with a total of three cases and no deaths.

The first case came from Cincinnati, and about ten persons had been exposed to the disease before its character was recognized and reported so that we could take steps to bring it under control. Of those exposed, sive had been properly vaccinated; of these, none contracted the disease. Of the ten exposed who had not been vaccinated, two took the disease and none died.

We have no eruptive hospital. Our method of managing the disease was by placing guards and quarantining houses, the city having disposed of the hospital at Cold Springs.

The total cost of managing the disease for the two years, including hospital, physicians, vaccination, guards, nurses, food and medicine, has been $100. The cost in loss of trade and interference with business is not known.

We have experienced no difficulty in stamping out the disease, having had no cases since May, 1904.

As nearly as can be ascertained, other cases of preventable discases have occurred during the two years as follows: Consumption, 152 deaths; typhoid fever, twenty-nine deaths; diphtheria, 127 cases and twenty-eight deaths; scarlet fever, seventy-six cases and five deaths; cholera infantum, six deaths; dysentery, nine deaths. The city health cfficer is paid a salary of $720 per year, and all of the other members serve gratuitously.

The following additional facts will be of interest in connection with this report: Doctors are not required to report cases of consumption, typhoid fever, cholera infantum and dysentery, so I can not give number of cases for past two years. Impossible to give an estimate as to cost to county for these cases.

Very respectfully,
CHAS. J. KEHM, M. D., City Health Officer.

Owensboro, Ky., August 31, 1905. To the State Board of Health:

Since our last published report two years ago there have been two outbreaks of smallpox in this city, with a total of thirty-two cases and no deaths.

The first case came from Indiana, and forty persons had been exposed in the disease before its character was recognized and reported so that we could take steps to bring it under control. Of those exposed, eighteen had been properly vaccinated; of these, none contracted the disease. Of the twenty-two exposed who had not been vaccinated ail took the disease and none died.

The population of this city is 20,000. At the time of our last report 80 per cent, had been vaccinated. Since that time it is estimated that 10 per cent, have procured vaccination, leaving 10 per cent. still unprotected, after nearly eight years of smallpox almost constantly in some section of the State.

We have one eruptive hospital, located two miles from the city, with a capacity for forty patients. Our method of managing the disease was to send patient and members of his family living in same
