This pamphlet is an account of the study of the statistics on scarlet fever and its spread in the last thirty years. Many interesting facts are brought out, particularly the relation of the spread of the disease to conditions such as to crowding; also, the failure of the control of the disease by means of isolation. Interesting comparisons are made of the mortality figures present and past. The study is complete and is of especial interest to epidemiologists.
