A STATE LABORATORY OF HYGIENE.

We recommend that a laboratory be established at Indianapolis under the charge and direction of the State Board of Health, to be called “The State Laboratory of Hygiene.” The laboratory would be used for making sanitary analyses necessary in the work of tracing the cause and origin of diseases, also for making examinations. of diphtheria cultures, examinations of sputum, blood, etc., for the purpose of settling diagnoses, that cure and prevention may be promptly applied. A third use of the laboratory would be to make analyses of foods and drugs, which is the first step necessary in the enforcement of the pure food and drug law. A laboratory devoted to the above purpose should be located at Indianapolis under the charge of the State Board of Health, because the enforcement of the health and food laws is placed upon said Board. The laboratory should be presided over by skilled men, who should give all of their time and energies to their work. All of the States bounding Indiana have State laboratories, and likewise, almost all of the Northern and a few of the Southern States. In this respect, therefore, Indiana is behind.

SANITARY SCHOOLHOUSES AND TEACHING HYGIENE IN THE

PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

We suggest a statute requiring that all schoolhouses hereafter built shall conform to natural sanitary laws; also that the act should contain a clause requiring that hygiene be taught in the public schools. Not less than 10 per cent. of the school moneys are now wasted on account of unsanitary schoolhouses, in which start most of our epidemics and in which are laid the foundations in many for consumption and other diseases in after life. Massachusetts, Michigan and other States have statutes of the character we propose, and better health and progress among the school children has thus been secured.

A STATE HOSPITAL FOR INDIGENT CONSUMPTIVES.

Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island have provided State Hospitals for Consumptives, and Ohio, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Michigan and other States are considering the matter. Both hymanity and economy demand such institutions in every State. At present, fully 1,000 indigent consumptives are being cared for at public expense in Indiana, but in such way as to spread the disease and not restore to health a single patient. The proposition to establish a State Hospital for Indigent Consumptives is not one to spend more money, but is clearly a measure to more wisely expend the money now devoted to caring for these unfortunates.

We believe that all of these recommendations are wise, and would, if put in force by the State, save money to the people and materially promote the public happiness. [Signed] WILLIAM N. WISHARD, President.
