The first fifty pages of the volume present the general report. This consists of a discussion of the practical benefits of sanitary enactments, a review of the diseases generally regarded as infectious or contagious, followed by a consideration of the various special subjects coming under the department of State Hygiene. Among the various papers that make up the body of the work is one on the sanitary drainage of tenement houses. This paper is clear and explicit in its style and illustrated by numerous cuts. The concluding pages are occupied by the registration report of the Bureau of Vital Statistics.
