Fifth Annual Report of the State Board of Health of the State of Kansas : From January 1, 1889, and Ending December 31, 1889 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Fifth Annual Report of the State Board of Health of the State of Kansas: From January 1, 1889, and Ending December 31, 1889 I have investigated the complaint about the use Of swamp hay in the cars of One of the passenger railway companies, and find that, during wet weather, the hay becomes saturated with water and loaded with the expectorations from scores of tobacco-chewers, the sputa from tuberculous lungs, and street filth from passengers' shoes. The moist exhalations from this mass of filth are pernicious and prejudicial to public health. If this hay is dried and used again, the dust that is given Off from the movements Of the passengers finds lodgment in many delicate mucous membranes. Such a practice is most reprehensible, and not confined to the City of Brotherly Love. Hay is still to be found in many of the street and steam motor cars, in the cities and towns Of Kansas. The city and county health Officials should attend to this matter without delay. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
