ATBTIN; Texas May. ll-8tate Health
Officer Bruniby: Is evidently keenly' dis-
appointed' at. the lack of interest shown
by tbe larger towns and cities in the mat-
ter ' of aourlng more satisfactory ' oondl-
tfons in the mat supply of Texas.. .Upon
his return front the meeting ef the State
Medical association which was held In
Dallas-last week. Dr.. Brumby today
spoke In eaustle terms concerning the pres-
ent sanitary conditions of the larger eitlea
and of those .who either openly oppose
or are Indifferent to their Improvement.
For two months prior to the Dallas meet-
ing Dre. -Brumby and CFarrell of - the
But board of health had waged a per-
sonal campaign with a view to arousing
interest In the adoption of. the advisory
code by seventy-five of the largest cities
of Texas. Hundreds of letters were writ-
ten with the purpose of getting the cities
to see the reasonableness of the code and
adopt it. . It was desired that the councils
of the eitlea should adopt the health
cede for the code does not become law
until It Is so adopted.
At Dallas Dr. Brumby ascertained from
the city and county health officers pres-
ent that their people are very elow to see
the importance of having a sanitary. In-
spector to be employed jointly by city
and county Dr. Brumby had especially
urged the health officers of the seventy
five or eighty largeet cities to be pres-
ent. - Besides these there were present a
few of the county health officers. All
these were Interested In the adoption of
the advisory code but tbey declared it
almost impossible .to get anything dona
by their constituents.
: reCAT10NNOW GRAVES.
Dr.' Brumby declares that the people of
Texas are not aware of the gravity of the
situation presented by the diseased meat
supply as it now ex lata . He says that
only two citleS In Texas namely Paris
and Greenville have respectable slaugh-
ter houses. He further says not a large
city In fTexae has a clean Jocal meat
Dr. Brumby said: "The State health-
board has long been aware that a large
part of the Texas meat supply Is bad
and we ' have waged a lengthy earnest
campaign for Its Improvement. But to
date only Paris and Greenville of the
larger towns could pass any sort of In-
spection. These alone comply with the
new requirements. Several cities have
their slaughter houses Inspected but none
too thoroughly.. Other States are unfor-
tunate in the same way however and
recently Cincinnati sent a representative
down to - Paris to get pointers on the
proper management of the meat supply.
"The1 cities are simply Indifferent soma
of this Indifference being due to Ignor-
ance. Jf the 'advisory code Is not reason-
able a recommended It can be amended.
One hundred city and county health of-
ficers met here- last Septembsr and de-
clared that the code is not unreasonable.
If the code - Is reasonable It should be
adopted and thus become Isir.
. TEXAS fGET8 REFU8E.
' "We are eating refuse meat In Texaa.
The Federal Inspectors see to It ffcat ho
diseased cattle shall be used In Interstate
shipment. It" used 'to be that the Federal
Inspectors were allowed to eull out the
bad ones' but now diseased cattle or crip-
ples are not allowed to be seen by the
government . Inspectors but are - used
locally. - It has eon-ie to pass that Texas
housewives are; looking more and more
to the government for protection against
diseased meat . It results therefore that
the honest local meat dealer has his busi-
ness damaged for he has to send his
cattle to Fort .Worth.-to be marked In-
spected and passed by the Federal In-
spectors before the meat will be taken by
Texas consumers. ' -
"We sometimes hear surprise expressed
at the way the big packing houses are
gobbling up business. The reason Is that
they have proper refrigeration. Very
often the local meat man ean not afford
adequate refrigerating equipment."
Dr. Brumby manifested chagrin at the
reception the city authorities accord the
health board's request that the advisory
code be adopted. He i quotes one promi-
nent mayor as saying: "Well we've heard
your side of the case but we -Want to
hear the butchers' side before we take
any action." :
Dr. Brumby thinks that the butchers
have been presenting ' evidence long
enough. He states that the health of
the larger' cities is dally- Jeopardised by
the sale of the meat of diseased unfit
; Dr. Brumby said with great emphasis:
"If with the exception of Paris and
Greenville there Is In Texas the mayor
of a single city who thinks that the local
slaughter houses will pass inspection I
wish they Would challenge what I have
said. Quagmires slime decomposing or-
ganic matter these are to be found every-
where. The walls of the slaughter houses
are covered with filth; and usually a 16-year-old
negro boy Is In charge of all the
cleaning the slaughter house gets. In
not a few of these slaughter pens bus-

i A feature of the day was an address
by Rabbi Henry Cohen of Galveston on

From the Minister's Viewpoint" -
Th aesston was opened promptly at M

PRESIDENTS ANNUAL MESSAGE. L
Th next feature of tbe program wa
the addre by th preetdent. Mr. Car-
ton briefly reviewed th history of th'
association for th past year compli-
mented them on th Mlectlon of Galves-
ton as the 1910 convention city and closed
by addressing himself to th younger
members' of th organisation especially
those who were just being admitted Into
full membership and Into the full duties
of a funeral director. In substance he
advised them as to .personal character
saying that one of the best qualifica-
tions of a successful undertaker was to
be a gentleman and at all time a good
man. He said: "At all tlmee be th
best man that you can be kind and
gentle and courteous especially so to
the family of ths bereaved."
The address of the president closed th
opening ceremonies following which the
following oommittees were announced by-
Secretary Smith on behalf of the chair:

hachte F. B. Glrard of Austin At Sag

with a lecture and demonstration by
Prof. George A. Brewer of Dallas who
demonstrated with a subject provided by
the local committee. - ..
SMITH EXHIBIT FREAK.' '
The afternoon session wa devoted first
to a demonstration and lecture "by Prof.
Hood F. Bmith of Pallas. Prof. Smith
used In hi lecture what I said to be
on of th most Interesting freak of hu-
man anatomy ever discovered In Amer-
ica. It was the preserved body of a Mex-
ican about 66 years of age at the time of
death and when the undertaker took him
In charge it was found that nature had
made a decided mlxup In th said Mex-
ican's Interior. His heart was found on
the right side the place usually occupied
by the heart being Ailed with the stom-
ach while the other Intestines had been
placed In th cavity whsr th stomach
should reet. The lecture was decidedly
Interesting and was followed closely by
Minutes of the 1sst meeting the reading
of communications and other minor mat-
ters occupied the time until the address
of Rabbi Henry Cohen. . .
Rabbi Cohen spoke of undertaker not
as neressary evils but aa serviceable ad-
juncts to thhilnister. He found -that
they often worked without compensation
and that they were lust aa ethical In
their dealings with their fellow under-
takers aa were lawyers clergymen and
physicians. An 'experience of more than
a quarter of a century proved to him that
they were seldom or never derelict St
their duty; that they handled bodies at
all stages of decay often at the risk of
personal - alcknesa and they did not. be-
f rudge time and labor even In epidemics.
Inllke some other professions or trades
they were not allowed to seek clients
but must wait till they are called. v '
ETHICS FOR "UNDERTAKERS.
To b around th dead and the living
at on and'th - same tlm called for
thoughtfulness taot sfnd consideration
upon the part of th undertaker; thought-
fulness for th survivors and considera-
tion for th body. Few are calm Imme-
diately after death In the household and
the greatest tact was necessary even to
the placing f th friends and family In
the waiting carriages.' Dr. Cohen spoke
against the gruesomensss of black and
predicts the time when white the 'em-
blem of hope and purity would obtain.
Generally artificial light was used blinds
were drawn shutters were closed and
every ray of sunlight was excluded from
the room In which tho funersl service
was held Instead of the sun being ' al-
lowed to pour In and vitalise the flower
on th coffin t
The rabbi questioned the wisdom of
wholesale floral offerings believing that
In many Instances tbe cost of such would
make a' substantial donation to a chari-
table Institution or a month's support to
the ornhsn. . .
Dr. Cohen's address was received with
enthusiastic applause and on motion a
rising vote -of thanksVwa tendered the
gentleman for the favor-of hi address.
