Sanitary Appliances at the Fair.
The American Public Health Association has offered its services for taking to Chicago not only all facilities known for the promotion of health, but all the leading thinkers in lines of sanitation. It will probably be intrusted by the World’s Fair promoters with the details of the work. The scheme of the association covers a sanitary exhibit surpassing anything of the kind ever before made. Its membership includes the sanitary officer of the various States, of the army and navy of the United States, and of the governments of Canada and Mexico. Its classification of sanitation work is ; Dwellings, schools and education, factories and workshops, clothing and dresses, food, sanitary engineering, public health administration in cities and towns, the laboratory and the red cross section. It has been in existence since 1872. Dr. J. H. Rauch, who in 1872 was sinitary superintendent of Chicago, was one of its founders. Its officers for this year may be mentioned, as they will cut a big figure in preparing for the World’s Fair exhibit. They are : President, Dr. Fe’ix Formento, New Orleans ; first vicepresident, Dr. Domingo Orvananos, city of Mexico ; second vice-president. Dr. Walter Wyman, Washington, D. C.; secretary, Irving A. Watson, Concord; N. II.; treasurer, J. Berrien Lindsley, Nashville. Dr. J. H. Rauch of Illinois is chairman of the committee of this association to prepare for a suitable exhibit at the World’s Pair.
The next meeting of the association will be held in the city of Mexico this year, and the next annual convocation will be in Chicago during the World’s hair.
