Abstract

To the Editor:  —In prescribing tincture of digitalis, a simple way of getting around the drop difficulty is to order a 30-minim vial so that each dose, if large, may be measured, or a day's dosage may be bottled in the vial by the patient, and divided as directed.

State Boards of Health.  —New Orleans having lost 8,000 victims by cholera in 1832 and in 1849-1850, out of a population of about 55,000, and anxious to maintain a quarantine, secured the enactment of a law in 1855 for the establishment of a state board of health. In 1869 a more comprehensive board was established in Massachusetts, followed in 1870 by California. Now nearly all the states have followed the example.—Kober: Pub. Health Rep.38:725 (April 6) 1923.
