Abstract

The Florida State Board of Health is now, so far as the legislative act is concerned, a reality; it is thought that the Governor will soon appoint the members of the Board. We have not seen a copy of the act, and do not know its conditions and provisions. The Board is to consist of three members, who will select from the State at large a secretary and an executive or health officer, the latter to be a physician. Whether the emoluments of the officers will be sufficient to warrant them in giving the proper attention to their duties we do not know. As a general rule such is not the case. Governments cannot expect to have offices properly filled so long as private enterprise is allowed to outbid the public services. Yellow fever cost the State of Florida millions of dollars last summer; it can never recover that money,
