Not illustrated. 1906 edition. Excerpt: ...The three stations which suffered least were Camp Daraga, Camp Wallace, and Malate Barracks. In the Department of the Visayas the disease occurred in the following order of frequency: Camps Jossman, Connell, Warwick, Bumpus, and Downes. In the Department of Mindanao but three stations reported malarial fever as prevalent, and all showed a decided decrease as compared with previous years. SMALLPOX. There were but 4 admissions for smallpox, with 2 deaths during the year. BERIBERI. One case of beriberi was reported. ASIATIC CHOLERA. The 1 case of cholera reported is open to doubt, as it was not bacteriologically confirmed. The last undoubted case among soldiers was in October, 1903. Cholera was officially declared as having disappeared from Manila in February, 1904, and from the provinces in April. Thus was brought to an end an epidemic which began in March, 1902, and the control and termination of which reflects the greatest credit upon medical officers of the Army. Not only did they protect the troops under their charge so effectively that an exceedingly small number were affected, compared with the civilian population among whom the' lived, but they everywhere labored unceasingly and to good purpose in the fight against the disease among the natives. DIARRHEAL DISEASES. The rates for diarrhea and dysentery, 160.55 and 76.44, showed an improvement over those for 1903. The highest rates for d'sentery were found in July, August, and September, while those for diarrhea occurred one month earlier. In the Department of Luzon the stations which furnished the greatest number of cases of dysentery were Camps Daraga, Wilhelm, and Wallace; those which furnished the least, Camps Stotsenburg and McGrath. DENGUE. Dengue gave an admission rate of 60.69, more
