Page 6 - Provinces, from the Annual Report of the Sanitary Commissioner with the Government of India for 1903 (p.
Page 46 - We recommend that in all towns and municipal boroughs in England and Wales, and in Ireland, powers be conferred on the authorities similar to those conferred on Scottish corporations and municipalities by the Burgh Police (Scotland) Act, 1892, viz. : — (a.) When the Local Authority in any town or urban district in England and Wales and Ireland have provided a public slaughter-house, power be conferred on them to declare that no other place within the town or borough shall be used for slaughtering,...
Page 54 - In the Falmouth oysters containing an excessive amount of copper, we find that much of the copper is certainly mechanically attached to the surface of the body, and is in a form insoluble in water, probably as a basic carbonate. In addition to this, however, the Falmouth oyster may contain a much larger amount of copper in its tissues than does the normal colourless oyster. In these Falmouth oysters the cause of the green colour may be the same as in the green American oysters.
Page 46 - ... all meat slaughtered elsewhere than in a public slaughterhouse, and brought into the district for sale, to be taken to a place or places where such meat may be inspected ; and that local authorities be empowered to make a charge to cover the reasonable expenses attendant on such inspection.
Page 42 - In the manufacture, sale, or storage of any such commodity does any act or thing likely to expose such commodity to infection or contamination, or omits to take any proper precaution for the due protection of such commodity from infection or contamination ; or (л) Omits on the outbreak of any infectious AD mg.
Page 54 - The colon group may be separated into two divisions — (1) those giving the typical reactions of the colon bacillus, and (2) those giving corresponding negative reactions, and so approaching the typhoid type ; but in no case was an organism giving all the reactions of the B. typhosus isolated.
Page 38 - ... of those laid down in the open water of the Bay the colonies present were especially small in number, whilst in those laid down in proximity to the drain-pipe the number was enormous (eg, 17,000, in one typical culture, as against 10 in the former case).
Page 54 - ... the cause of the green colour may be the same as in the green American oyster. 9. By treating sections of diseased American oysters under the microscope with potassium ferrocyanide and various other reagents, we find that the copper reactions correspond in distribution with the green coloration ; and we find, moreover, from these micro-chemical observations that the copper is situated in the blood-cells or leucocytes, which are greatly increased in number. This condition may be described as a...
Page 45 - ... 12. Although we did not find the Bacillus typhosus in any oysters obtained from the sea or from the markets, yet in OIL- experimental oysters inoculated with typhoid we were able to recover the organism from the body of the oyster up to the tenth day. We show that the typhoid bacillus does not increase in the body or in the tissues of the oyster, and our figures indicate that the bacilli perish in the intestine.
Page 46 - ... 3. With regard to slaughter-houses in rural districts, the case is not so easy to deal with. But the difficulty is one that must be faced, otherwise there will be a dangerous tendency to send unwholesome animals to be slaughtered and sold in small villages where they will escape inspection. We recommend, therefore, that in Great Britain the inspection of meat in rural districts be administered by the county councils. In Ireland the duty of carrying out inspection ought to devolve upon authorities...
