The Health of the TOWn.
Many a time has it been sai-I that
the dwellers in the Town ought to buy
the- small body of forest growth lying
-just to the west of it. % hat is every
body's busincss fs no body's business,
and if the chill and fever were as in
different about taking hold oY thd
denizens of this once notably healthy
town, as these are to take care of their
health, we need not write these lines.
Nor d we expect to do one particle of
good by writing the'm. There haq
never yet been found a citizen with
gumption enoagh to take the whole
matter in hand and by indomitable
perseverance compel the comniunity to
open their eyes to what is beieficial to
their hygiene. Here one and their
another and everywhere else soie
other one is shaking wit,h theo chills,
and nearly (if not) every one belives:
who knows the facts of the case, thai
broad marsh only a quarter of a mnih
due west, whence blow night and da3
in the summer and early fall the west,
ern winds, is the principal-cause of al
thisohill and fever. And they be.
lieve further that clearing away th<
original forest growth which inter
,venes is peculiarly disastrous to th<
health of the town, and yet the clear
ing goes on. There will soon be ni
trees to shake in that region, but w,
opine there will be lots of bones i1
this corporation to quiver to thi
strokes of the chills.
