The recent epidemic of typhoid fever at the college is of interest to us and especially the methods now in vogue with reference to the examination of water for various organisms. During the recent epidemic and previously the well waters in the vicinity of Ames as well as the college water supply were examined at various times. An examination has also been made of water coming from wells of the parties who have furnished milk to the college. It should be stated here that this report is not completed owing to the fact that some of the species have not been sufficiently determined. From the nature of the case it requires a great deal of patient and careful work to run out the different species, so that the biological examination was not completed.
