Diarrhœa.
There were no deaths from this disease, although there were
four from allied diseases.
Tuberculosis.
There were 10 deaths from Tuberculosis, 7 from Phthisis
(Consumption), and 3 from other tuberculous diseases.
In each case, as formerly, that has come under my notice
infectiousness of the disease has been explained, and disinfectants
and leaflets supplied.
Disinfection after removal and fatal cases has been offered,
and has been generally readily accepted.
In the Asylum there were 17 deaths, which is an improvement.
The figures are given below for previous years.

Isolation is now carried out in the Asylum, as far as possible, for Phthisical patients.
