The lack of sufficient funds to defray expenses has also greatly crip. pled this important department of the service under my supervision during the summer months when domestic animals run at large and while the dog-days prevail. Nevertheless, the above statement compares favorably with former years, especially when we consider the fact that every year reduces the grazing-ground within the city limits, and teaches the custodians of cows, goats, geese, &c., how rarely any animal gone astray escapes the relentless impounder.

Double the amount now devoted to this service would be judiciously expended during nine months of the year.

The army of miserable curs will be recruited to such formidable strength as to demand the marsbaling of a sufficient force for their extermination during the next warm season.

The above table gives a very satisfactory exhibit of the services of the physicians to the poor, and the cost of medicines furnished, for the eleven months ending August 31, at which time the honorable commissioners suspended its operations. A calculation shows that 95 cents was the average expense of treating each patient, and that 16,182 visits or consultations were had. No city in this or any otber country can show so extensive a service of that character as economically conducted. Nine earnest, competent physicians were devoting a large share of their time every day to the relief of the wretched and unfortunate sick of our District, working out a method of dealing with this question which we confidently hoped would meet the approval and adoption of all who ipterest themselves in charitable offices. No greater exhibition of the poverty of our District treasury can be published to the world than that 10 funds are available for this huinane object. Not a day passes that leveral of the very poor do not apply to me for attention and mediine required by some miserable sufferer. And, as the cold winter vears on, incalculable sickness will result from this necessity. Must his disgrace upon our fair District of Columbia continue a bye.word to be whole country? Certainly some way, public or private, will be ound out of this apparent unchristian disregard for these most disressful people living within our borders.

The following report of the medical sanitary inspector, and the conolidated table accompanying it, exhibits how important are the special laties assigned to that officer and how faithfully and efficiently he has erformed them. I commend his statements—resulting from every.day xperience among the very poor-to the careful consideration of the oard. DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA BOARD OF HEALTH,

OFFICE OF HEALTH-OFFICER,

Washington, September 30, 1876. SIR: I have the honor to submit herewith my report as medical sanary inspector, for the year ending September 30, 1876, including a po solidated tabular statement of cases referred for investigation and eport :
