DID YOU GET OUR LETTER?
We sent out, this week, a letter to every subscriber whose sub
scription is overdue. In some cases this is a "socond call" or pla.
The letter recounts many of the Rood thjnga said about The Cit
izen by those who hare recently renewed. It also showa how easily
remittance can be made through the use of the coin card which was
enclosed. It shows further how every one who pajs up and keeps
paid up contributes to the success of the paper aud thus not only
benefits himself but benefits every othor subscriber.
The publishers of The Citizen are seriously considering the adop
tion of a cash basis for all subscriptions and tho prompt stopping of
every subscription at expiration. There is much to be said both for and
against this proposition. A letter on tho Editor's desk now is full of
thanks for the fact that the paper was allowed to go on after expira
tion, thus giving tho writer, who happened to be hard pressed, on
opportunity to pay when it was a. littlo easier to do so. On the other
hand, we occasionally hear from people who complain that we should
have stopped their paper at expiration. Of course, if we should do
that, we should hava to stop crediting anybody and refuse to take ad
vantage of a legal right to continue subscriptions unless notified to
We hope that every letter sent out will receive the attention that
is due it and that the returns may be such as to make our subscrip
tion list, that is now a more than half paid up list, altogether so.
WARNING AGAINST DIPHTHERIA
Reports from the State Board of Health, based upon information
in the hands of the Bureau of Vital Statistics, deciaro that Diphtheria
exsists in more than twenty counties of tho state and that the death
rato is high.
Diphtheria is a preventable disease and if recognized in time is
easily cured by the antitoxin treatment, and its spread can then be pre
vented by the isolation of tho patient and other sanitary and precau
We are publishing, on page 5 of this issue, a bulletin issued by
the Board of Health and sent to every paper in the state in an effort
to check the spread of the disease and also to acquaint the people
with methods of prevention, and improved methods of treatment.
There is no subject just now that ahould be studied with any greater
care, and, since the knowledge is definite and ready at hand, we trust
that every reader of The Citizen will take advantage of the opportu
nity to equip himself so as to be' able to help in the warfare against
one of tho hitherto most dreaded diseases of childhood.
A CLEAN FACE
Any one who can remember back twenty-five years cannot fail
to be impressed with the fact that fewer men now wear whiskers a
mustache, burn-sides or a full beard than formerly. And there are
but few who would not agree that this accounts for the fact that men
look neater than formerly, and that it is also conducive to health, in
asmuch as n man with a heavy beard or mustache finds it difficult to
eat and drink in a very decent or sanitary fashion.
A few months ago we saw a picture of one of the most important
committees of Congress iu which there were about twenty-five faces
and only two or three of those had even a mustache. A littlo later,
on a trip into tho mountains, we were impressed by the fact that in
tho promiscuous crowd, that chanced to nearly fill a railway coach
between two stations tho men being farmers, merchants, doctors,
teachers aud general business men only one had a full beard and a
half dozen or so a mustache.
Observation will perhaps verify the statement that, as the ten
dency grows to discard A beard, men are less inclined to bo filthy
with the use of tobacco and to spit promiscuously. Of course the
oue may not follow the othor necessarily, but both apriug from a
common impulse. Certainly iu the lessening of the spitting habit tho
public health is conserved.
If a man will look at a picture he had made fifteen or twenty
years ago with a mustache nearly reaching to his ears or drooping
over hia lips so that it is impossible for him to drink without drink
ing through it, theu will glauce at another mado more recently wb'eu
he was absolutely clean shaven or had his mustache clipped, "ho may
not be willing to agree that the olean shave has been conducive to
his own or the public health, but he will be able to see the improve
ment in his looks.
He Wants No Such Assistance.
