4DEADLY OCCUPATIONS! CRUSADE AGAINST CONSUMPrlOOf. IN WALES. The table given below gives us the figtrree shewing the influence of different occupa- tions upon the death rate from consumption. The Tin Worker shews the highest rate <.f mortality. Out of 1000 deaths occurring in this industry, between the ages of 25-65 yeans, as many as 838 are due to consump- tooa 1 The Tin Worker, the Gutter, the Scissor* Maker, and the File Maker are all exposed to irritating particles of dust which injure the lining of the respiratory passages, and so make them excellent eoils for the microbe of consumption to grow on. Next, come Hotel and Inn Servants shewing a mortality as high as 669 per 1000. The higjh figure in this case is due mainly to two causes. In the first place, they are prone as a class to excessive drinking, and secondly, they are exposed to infection as a result of care- lesa spitting by customers. This high death rate shews plainly the need of enforcing the regulations against spitting in public places. The spit of the consumptive patient, loaded with great numbers of microbes dries, and then becomes spread about as dust par- ticles, carrying with them the microbes. In this way people inhale them, and, so contract the disease. When it is fully realised that this is the main source of infection from man to his fellow man. it will be understood how high- ly important it is to deal effectively with the spit of the consumptive.
