THINGS OBSfRVFU AND NOTED.
Tha establishment of a boird of
health for this borough Is a itep in tha
right direetlon and oie it la to be
i.ot,d will b carried into ffet as
epaedily aa possible. If there is a sam
lilanca of trnth in the manv storiae
that are in circulation, wa as a com
mo'iity are surrounded on all aldts
with contageons diseases fatal in their
results The establishment of euoli
boards in tbis common wealth Is of
such recent origin that few of the
many cities and boroughs have as yet
become entirely used or reconciled to
thia so called innovation. The que
tion ns to tbe authority or mission of
euch boardt is, it it fair to lay, ques
tioned by not a few. For the benefit
of these skeptics it is DOCOMftfy to state
that tbe local board derives it author
ity from the state by the act of aeaem
bly of May II, 1698, an extract of
which appeared beetofofl in these
minimis. The DOWd ranks na a dt
fendant only for the appointment of
ita members, it being a on-ordlnate
branob with the town council,
ou whieb body it relies for
the approval and appropriation re
quired to discharge tbe duties
incumbent upon it as a body. While the
act of assembly on tha ono baud defines
the authority of the locnl board, on
the other band it sots forth tbe duties
and responsibilities which may be
comprised in tbe few worda: "The
preservation of tbt pnblio health."
The Importance of this question can
not be bettor illustrated by tbe mere
fact that if tbe responsibility be al
ready great when the health of an in
dividual only it concerned, bow Infi
nitely greater must it become when
tbe autboritiet hare to deal with the
health condition of the whole ooin
mnnlty. To fulfill this mission, in view of the
prevailing prejudice arrayed againat it,
is a problem of no mean order. That
there will be more or less prejudice
against the establishing of such board
goea witnout sayinr, becauto there
n-vsr was a time when a movement in
angurated for the betterment of the
community was advanced than tome
nltra-contervative individual in the
exuberance of hit economit nature
oriea ont, "What' the use of a hoard
of nealth: Look at the expenasl" and
mny aimilar rtmtrks I: is ob
vious that it will require mire
than the persuasive powert of the
board itself to overcome thit prejulice
aud convert its opponent! into disciples
To do this tbt boird will have to rely
largely upon the assistance of outside
source, and, to the writer a way or
thinking, it would ba extremely dim
onlt to think of three more powerful
allies than the school, the melical pro
fttsioo, and, last but not ltatt, tbe
preas. The former iu importance it
paramount to either of the latter, be
c.inae the instruction gained on this
subject will fatniliariz) the ris
ing generations with the public
needs in sanitary resptct to
such an extent that they will grow np
well prtparsd to eoraprehen 1 the im
portance of tanitary tnnervition. Iu

The dnties are mueh harder to

where offieials art not to apt to la

Since the question hai arlann, "Are
