A comforting sign of the time in Chicago is the very general and respectful attention given by the public to the excellent hygienic suggestions offered weekly by the Bulletin of the Health Department of Chicago, and willingly reprinted by the newspapers. Seldom has it been the case that advice of this sort has been so respectfully received by American communities. The fact is a most encouraging omen to those medical men to whom it seems, at times, as if the public cared naught for their hard work for the good of the community. Other reward is largely denied the sanitarian. At least, it is for him a comfort to know that a community has learned to listen attentively and to give heed, to a certain extent at least, to advice and suggestions offered by medical men.
