Soldiers Are Treated to Excess By Civil-
ians With Result That Drunkenness
London, Nov. 20.—Every day the
demand in London for a stricter
regulation of the sale of liquor dur-
ing the war becomes*more insistent.
Military authorities are disgusted
with the drunkenness of soldien,
brought about by the disposition of
civilians to treat all men in uniform.
Lord Kitchener has issued numer-
ous protests against the treating of
his soldiers, but without the desired
results. Even the closing of public
houses at 10 o'clock at night has
not cured the evil and stricter regu-
lations seem inevitable.
leading southward from Damascus
in this move shows its strategic
value to the Ottoman Empire. Due
to this supply route, she can now
concentrate and maintain in this
desert region many times the force
that would otherwise be possible.
For the defense of the canal, the
British have 15,000 Australasians,

A typhoid epidemic of ninety-three
cases in the city of Hanford, Cal., is
reported by W. A. Sawyer, Berkley,
Cal., in a recent issue of The Jour-
nal of the American Medical Asso-
ciation. All the cases could be
traced to a church dinner, and the
infection came from a typhoid
carrier among those who prepared
and served the food, a woman who
1 y baked spaghetti turned from a
safe dish to one which was heavily
infected. The best protection against
carriers will come through thorough
investigation of the source of infec-
tion in every case óf typhoid fever.
When carriers are discovered, they
can be advised and controlled. Un-
til there are more trained epidemiol-
ogists on a full-time basis among
state and local health officials, the
danger from carriers will not be
noticeably diminished, and the in-
dividual will find in antityphoid
vaccine his best protection against
infection from carriers."
The Turkish Campaign.
The advent of Turkey into the
war has had little immediate effect
upon the situation, as both Russia
and Great Britain had taken steps
to protect their interests against this
eventuality. Russia has retained
her three Caucasian army corps in
their peace locations on the south-
ern border and Great Britain has
concentrated a large garrison to
protect the Isthmus of Suez.
Turkey has, on paper, an army of
thirteen army corps, about 500,000
men. She must, however, keep a
large force in Europe and the ad-
jacent Asiatic provinces in view of
the unsettled attitude of the Bal-
kan States. It is hardly likely that
she has more than 90,000 men to
send against the Suez Canal, 'or
more than 60,000 with which to
oppose the Russian invasion of Ar-
The British operations have so
far been directed against 'Akabe,
where the Turkish army is concen-
trating. The new Syrian railway
British contingent from Kiaochow | did not know that she had had ty-
will also soon be available.
The Russian campaign against
Turkey has consisted of an inva-
sion of Armenia by an army of
about 90,000 men from Batun, Kara
and Erivan in Caucasia. This army
has now advanced twenty-five
miles, half way to Erzerum, through
a rugged country, devoid of good
roads, that lends itself to defensive
fighting. The Russian progress will,
accordingly, be slow, but should re-
sult, in a few weeks, in the com-
plete occupation of the border
provinces of Trebizond and Erze-
rum. The Russians will hardly ad-
vance much beyond this unless
they more than double the force
now operating in this region.
Mention has been made in dis-
patches of an advance by this route
to' Constantinople. Such a move
would require 400,000 men and
phoid. The history is interesting.
The infection was conveyed in a
dish of Spanish spaghetti. Only
those partaking of it were primarily
affected and only one secondary
case was reported, but this was ap-
parently not positively traced to
this source. Sawyer sums up his
conclusions as follows: "The source
of infection in the ninety-three
cases of typhoid fever in the Han-
ford epidemic was a typhoid carrier
who prepared food served at a pub61
lie dinner. The vehicle of the in-
fection was a large pan of Spanish
spaghetti prepared by the carrier.
This dish was baked after it had
been infected, but this baking was
shown by laboratory experiments
to have developed the bacteria in-
stead of sterilizing the food. Cer-
tain customary methods of cooking
are thus shown to be inadequate as
three months time. Long .before a protection against infection. The
this period elapses the command of
the Black Sea will have been settled
and Russia will be able to transport
troops direct to the point that may
be seized as a base for operations
against the Turkish capital.—Scien-

incubation period in the majority of
the cases in this edidemic of ty-
phoid fever proved^ to be shorter
than the time usually regarded as
the minimum. The first case de-
veloped three days after infection.
More cases showed their first defi-
nite symptoms six days after the
infected food was eaten than on any
other one day. The ways in which
a carrier may transmit infection are
so varied and so numerous that at-
temps at the control of mere chan-
nels of infection will not offer suffi-
cient protection. Those who were
suspicious of the raw salad at the
dinner in Hanford and ate the fresh-1
