'Physical Weil-Being Most Important
to Community as Well as to
There are lew things of so great im
portance to the individual as his
liealth. Upon it -depends largely nis
attitude toward life and his relation?
ship to his fellow man. Generally
-speaking, the physically well are pros
perous and efficient and the sick or
diseased unsuccessful and inefficient
The individual chronically poisoned
hy malaria or by hookworm infection
finds his dally work onerous and the
-fruits of his labor give but little pleas
ure. The consumptive would gladly
exchange his hank account for physi
cal health. Who would not give his
material wealth if by so doing he
could bring hack loved ones lost pre
maturely hy fatal disease?
The health of the community is the
combined health cf those living in it
The relation of the citizen to the
health of the community is, therefore,
his relation to the health of his neigh
bors and of those living in the same
city or state.
The health of the community should
be of interest to every individual, for
upon it depends the welfare of him
self, of his family and of his fellow
citizens. Upon the health of the peo
ple depends the happiness and pros
perity of the community. Without
heali-h there can be no real prosperity
and such material success as may be
attained is of little benefit.
To the extent that the inhabitants
of a community are sick the commu
nity itself is diseased. The community
has health only in so far as the people
are free from disease. Tc a commu
nity health ia a valuable asset: it in
sures prosperity, it attracts people. It
increases the value of the land. Many
letters are received daily at the public
.health bureau at Washington from
people who are contemplating buying
land and moving from one state to
another, asking about the health con
ditions of certain localities.
I 'GET RID OF PLAGUE SPOTS
Poorly Ventilated, Dirty and Crowded
Habitations Are a Disgrace to
the City They Disfigure.
JJouses were first designed as a
^jplace to seek cover and protection dur
ing sickness, storms and inclement
. weather, says a bulletin issued by the
Chicago health department. At other
times, when the hardy people did not
need this protection, they used houses
infrequently. From the ancient, rude
houses have developed the modern
homes, where si mmer weather may
be had in deepest winter. The ten
dency is for greater comfort and con
venience and the open-air propagan
dist is more and more meeting popular
acclaim. Sun porches, sleeping rooms
widely accessible both to air and sun
rays, are deemed necessary to the best
But homes of this kind are fewer
by far than the residences of the
humbler classes and there are many
homes filled to overcrowding that en
joy only primitive means for ventila
tion. Such houses are simply generat
ing beds for the bad-air diseases. In
many cases tenants may know of their
dangers, but the family purse deters
movement to more healthful surround
It should be brought home to the
owners of unsafe, dirty and neglected
houses that these should be made de
cent. A good modern house may al
ways be rented in any city. Profits do
not depend on poor houses, and the
tenant of an old, poorly ventilated,
dangerous firetrap, never painted nor
repaired, does not get his money's
' worth. In short, as a rule, he pays
the highest price*for the poorest ac
Plant a Tree. 1
Whether it be a fruit tree, an orna- J
mental tree or a timber tree, the time j
devoted to planting it is well and '
worthily spent. Within the last two
decades the whole country has awak
ened to the importance of the forestry
question. All states should be inter
ested in preserving the remnants of
our goodly forest heritage, and in pass
ing on to future generations a land
beautified and glorified by its wealth.
It requires years for nature to build
a perfect tree, and it requires only a
few moments for man to destroy na
ture's work. The time has come when
nature must be assisted in the benefi
cent task of reforestation.-Louisville
Sunken Garden in Old Basement
By transforming the basement of a
