1910 Mar 3 – Winnipegosis
A very large audience gathered in the Methodist Church on Saturday evening, to hear Dr. Medd lecture on “Tuberculosis.” The chair was occupied by the Rev. W.R. Rowan, minister of the church, who in introducing the lecturer took the trouble of saying that it was the Doctor’s first attempt at public speaking and trusted that the audience would give him their best attention and sympathy. This the audience did and the lecture proved to be highly interesting and instructive. The lecturer laid great stress on the fact that dirt and dust were the principal carrying factor of tubercular germs and made a strong appeal for the admittance into the home-life of sunlight, fresh air and space, which he sad were the deadly enemies of tuberculosis. Other important matters were touched upon in the course of the lecture, and the information and advise given should prove to be of great benefit to the people of Winnipegosis.
On the proposition of W.E. Rowan, seconded by Mr. Shannon, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the Dr. for his interesting lecture. Cake and ice cream were afterwards served. The proceeds amounted to twenty dollars.
