The text proper of this very voluminous report comprises 609 pages; but an equal amount of " bulk " is added consisting of maps and diagrams, many of which are of little or no value, and could have been left out without injury to the report. If such reports as the above are worth publishing at all, they are certainly worth preserving, and should be put up in a more durable and less clumsy style than the present pamphlet form. However, the report shows that the Board is doing much valuable work. The report of the Public Analyst is interesting, but much of his work is of value only from a commercial standpoint and not as affecting the public health.
