This booklet, prepared by the San Francisco Department of Public Health, deals with the extermination of rodents, insects, vermin and noxious weeds. The second part deals with the care of foodstuffs in the home. The third part occupies only a little over two pages and is entitled "Home Care of the Ill" but is really only a summary of the precautions against the spread of contagion. The fourth part deals with the sterilization of dishes. By reason of its brevity, accuracy, completeness and convenient size this should be a convenient pamphlet for the housewife.
