The Philadelphia ferrlt present one of
the greatest problem In enforcing the quar
antine: It Is estimated thtt 6000 children
entered this city from Camden early last
evening and thai they cotilJ hare taken up
their, reatdence here before the quarantine
becntne effective. Eighteen Inspectors have
n6wbeen detailed to the work at the ferr es
under Dr. Samuel O. DUon. State Commis
sioner of Health. ...
Virtually the entire Pennsylvania border
is hoir being patrolled on the north, east
nd outh to prevent the entrance of chil
dren from other States, but the city author
ities are continuing the efforts to stamp out
the acourge which has taken it lives In
Philadelphia since July 1, and has attacked
more than 100 others.
'Only seven of the victims of the disease
re being treated In their homes, the re
mainder having been sent chiefly to the
Philadelphia Hospital for Contagious Dis
eases, which. Doctor Calrne said today. Is
in no danger of becoming overcrowded. The
home patients are; Dronl T Tleh.inlsh. 3.

Sixty medical Inspectors of the public
schools will aid the campaign against the
scourge, provided the Board of Education
gtvea Its permission. Dr. Wllmer Krusen.
Director of the Department of Health and
Charities, said he believed all of the In
spectors would volunteer their services.
These men are specially trained In this sort
of work.
Medical Inspectors began today the rigid
inspection of all the playgrounds In the
city. Every playground In Philadelphia
will be Inspected dally, the children plrfy
ing there will be examined and whenever
necessary tho grounds will be fumigated.
Medical Inspectors under Dr. A. A. Cairns,
chief medical Inspector, who hav. been
called back from their vacations, have, with
a few exceptions, reported for duty Doctor
Cairns and the Inspectors will discuss today
aomo means of Isolating spota that are
thought to be centers of contagion.
The railroads arc co-operating with tho
health authorities, and conductors have been
Instructed to demand health certificates from
children at the time their tickets are col-
The original purpose of the State Health
department was to quarantine only against
'children coming Into this State from Nen
Tork and New Jersey, but It was decided
Yesterday to add Delaware and Maryland
to the list becauso It was feared that an
attempt would be made to evade the quar
antine by making an entrance Into the
State through Delaware and Maryland. As
the border quarantine now stands It Is one
of the most stringent health measures ever
adopted In this State.
That the ravages of the plague arc not
condned to this city, is shown by reports
from other sections of the State. One death
and a new case was reported from Easton
and a new caao in Bristol and one In Scran
ton. Everywhere a horror of the disease has
been aroused and health officers are finding
ready co-operation In all quarters. Moving
picture theater managers are co-operating
by barring children under the age of 16.
That sufficient money for the paralysis
campaign will be provided by the city was
assured Doctor Krusen by Joseph P. Gaff
ney. 'chairman of Councils' Finance Com
mittee. The problem will be attacked from a med
ical point of view at meetings of the eight
branches of the County Medical Society,
which will be called by Dr. John D. McLean,
-president of that body. He and Doctor
iLAUnuen discussed this matter today.
The medical authorities will have the full
co-operation of the police. Policemen will
be assigned to watch all quarantined nomas,
thus leaving the medical Inspectors free to
do other preventive work.
Health officers along the Main Line and
in other suburban districts are aroused to
preventive work. Sand-piles in playgrounds
are being disinfected, as are all breeding
spots for flies.'
In Camden, where the disease has caused
several deaths, 'the health authorities have
asked the railroads to co-operate by the
frequent fumigation of cars, with a special
view to killing files, either by disinfection
or by "swatting." It Is believed that files
may be carriers of the disease germs.
Under the rules of the State quarantine
all persons more than 16 years of age will be
passed by Inspectors without health certifi
cates. Children under 16 years will be
passed only when they have certificates from
health authorities stating that they are
from nonlnfected districts and have not
been In contact In any way with Infantile
paralysis. Children who have lived on
premises where there was Infantile pa
ralysis will be passed only when the cer
tificate certifies that they have been under
medical supervision for 14 days and have
.been regularly discharged. Before chil
dren who come from stricken districts are
passed the medical Inspector Is Instructed
to obtain the address In the stricken dis
trict, the destination, the name of the
householder at destination, the name of the
traveling companions and, if traveling by
automobile, the license number.
Children who are not passed by the In
spectors must be escorted across the State
border andpteC free In the State from which
they came. 'Inspectors are instructed to
arrest any adults and children making re
sistance and to take them before the near
est magistrate, charging them with vio
lation or a Pennsylvania statute.
The following quotation from the order
is of special Interest:
"Persons who have been temporarily at
large hotels or apartment houses. In which
there Is or has been a case of Infantile par
alysis, will not be considered as having
lived In premises In which there Is or has
been a case of Infantile paralysis, unless. In
the opinion of the health authorities Issuing
the certificate, they may have been actually
exposed and such fact Is speedily noted on
the certificate.
"Commuters' certificates Issued by the
Pennsylvania Department of Health or local
health authorities of Pennsylvania, must be
accepted by our officers, provided they have
been countersigned or redated eery 10
days after the date of Issue.
"One or two day excursion certificates
issued by the Department of Health or local
health authorities of Pennsylvania must be
accepted by our officers at any time up to
48 hours after the same has been used.
"Both commute' certificates and one
and two day special certificates are good
for both leaving and returning to the State.
Harry Lutx. 10 years old, of 3840 Syden

from infantile paralysis, was today found
to have been a victim of meningitis. After

made by the police and other disinterested
persons place the number of strikers at

as they were orderly.
The detectives who arrested the men were
unable to prove that they were guilty of
throwing the bricks and stones. Henry

nobler to suffer the bumps and dust of a
terrible road or to glide smoothly ocr n

Promote Temperance
Officials and the 300 employes of tho
Philadelphia Quartz Company, of 121 South
Third street, declare that, temperance pays.
More than two years ago officials of the
company hit upon a plan of promoting
temperance among the employes. It was
decided to make s. 10 per cent Increase In
tho wages of those employes who would
agree to sign n pledge. At first the sign

oetter pay and greater opportunities for
their families, while for us It has meant
