YOUNG MAN FROM PAYSON
DIES OF TYPHOID IN CEDAR
Yesterday afternoon at about 4:30 j
o'clock, Mr. Young, n man 27 years of
age, died hero of typhoid fever, after
having apparently passed the crisis
of tho disease. Apparently he was in
humble circumstances, having no mon
ey, and wns cared for at tho City
Hall from the timo of his arrival hero
eight days ago. It i3 learned that he
was taken sick nbout 10 days pre
viously, and laid out alone on tho black
ridgo in Washington county for ten
days, with only one quilt to shelter
him from the elements, nnd only such
assistance ns passers-by could give.
Then he was brought) to this city, but
having no money to pay for hospital
accommodations or medical treatment
he probably did not have the best of
care, though tho city and the city mar
shal and physician gave such assist
ance ns they could. The relntives of
the unfortunate mnn were communi
cntcd with nnd his father and wife and
two small children came hero and was
with him at the end. The immediate
cause of death was a hemorrhage of
the bowel.
The remains were shipped to Paro
wan for burial. It appears that the
deceased is a grandson of the old Mr.
Hyatt of that place.
One of the children is a baby in
arms, tho other a little boy of about
three years. Deep sympathy is ex
pressed on all sides for the unfortu
nate family. Few Cedar people knew
of the situation until after the death
of the patient.
SPLENDID NEW LIGHTENING
PROTECTION ON POWER LINE
i
President Woodhouse of the Dixie
Power states that the very finest type
of lightening arresters have been in
stalled on their lino up through the
Mcndows nnd thnt Inst Saturday they
had a splendid oportunity to witness
its effectiveness. There was a violent
electrical storm in progress, and the
sheets of flame seemed to envelop the
line clear to the ground. It seemed
inevitable that the system would be
put out of commission, but it contin
ued in working order throughout the
storm. Mr. Woodhouse states that
four miles of line are still needed to
complete the eastern side of tho cir
cuit from the, plant to. this placonnd
that the wire for his section is on the
way somewhere, but where, and when
it will be delivered, is all a matter of
conjecture.
ANOTHER CONSTRUCTION
COMPANY IS FORMED HERE
Cedar City People Launch $ 1 0,000
Company for the Construction
of Good Roads.
Another construction company,)
whoso chief aims and objects are the)
building of roads, filed articles of in-'
corporation the latter end of the week. I
It will be known as the Cedar Con-'
struction Company and the amount of
the capital stock is $10,000. i
The officers nnd directors are: Rich
ard Williams, president; Julius Rosen-
berg, vice-president; John H. Lunt
secretary, and these with G. W. M.
Hunter nnd Evelyn Parry constitute j
the board of directors.
The principal purpose of the com
pany is to constuct the road through
the lower part of the Cedur Cnnyon,
providing they nre successful in Innd i
ing the contract. If the venture will
prove remunerative, they may enter
the field as regular contactors for'
road work. (
Isn't is comforting to know thnt
prices nre nil descending now. Had
you noticed it?

part of last week he was confined to i
his bed with a severe cold nnd bron

Mr. Francis Middleton hns been very '
much under the weather tho past week ,

voluptious voice.
During the evening Mrs. Delia Ol

i the following is one:
GRANDPA MARRIED GRANDMA
JUST FIFTY YEARS TODAY
l Grandma is a grand dear lady,
With her stunning English ways.
With a heart so big nnd true,
1 Even on her busy days.
Her hands are always toiling
I At something day nnd night.
I Sho never leaves a task undone,
But does them nil quite right.
I Her enkes nre rich nnd wholesome,
And her good old apple pie,
Her pickle sauce nnd catsup
And the beef she used to fry,
Would mnko a man feel happy
To possess such a wife.
No little wonder Gradpa won
'Twas meals that knocked tho strife.
1 Grandpa wns a mnn of wisdom
I And his life hns been of toil;
Ho came to Utah in the early days
, And helped to till the soil.
His teacher was experience,
I The 'surer road to fame.
, Grandpa was so tall nnd straight
, Thnt Colonel became his name.
Grandpa married Grandma dear
Just fifty years today.
That's why wo'ro here to celebrate
In this elaborate fray.
Here's a health to Grandpa and

The Large Proportion of Physically - H

' ' ''
Habits and Living. H
"a H
Physicnl examinations of men for H
the draft revealed conditions which as- X M
tonished many . H
Medical school inspection here and- H
elsewhere hns informed snnitnriumii , H
of the very general condition of phyn- H
icnl unfitness. Of 20,000,000 pupils 1
enrolled, 70 per cent mnnifest somo H
physicnl defect in other words thcro H
nre in this country 14,000,000 young XVfl
persons who urc commencing life with H
n hundienp. H
Adults and children drift, through H
lack of information or indifference H
into habits which result in condition H
adverse to health. Formerly it wiu VAVfl
the method of both tho public and H
phycisinns to consider disease us it H
occurred, all energy being bent to- PAVfl
wards securing a cure; few, if any, H
concerned themselves withlprcvontij. H
In shop work when accidents oe- H
currcd it wns a question of how quick- H
ly could tho injured be removed for PAVA
enro, whereas tho question of proven- H
tion of accidents in an idea of com- PAyA
paratively recent dnte nnd today is i aVAVJ
only its elementary stages. EjAVJ
Tho causes of diseases known to KjAVJ
scienco nre not ns yet generally ac- PPJ
ccptcd by all members of tho mcdicl ftVAVJ
profession, therefore it would not be ' J t ' "(f
expected that they would be known by j ' PPJ
tho general public. PPfl
Astonishing ns it mny seem, there t PPfl
nre today thoso who consider nil din- WflBB
caso ns a sort of divine visitation, or i pPX
as tho natural result of sin. It is PH
felt that systematic instruction in pre- PPJ
ventativo hygiene is most essential, . vAfaS
as with mnny, disease is due to lack '
of personal hygienu nnd sanitation. iPPJ
Examples pf this arc frequently ob- kaTfl
served in cases of adenoids, enlarged ll
tonsils, improper feeding, etc. H
There is no doubt thnt adenoids nro PPJ
incident to improper care of a child PPJ
iy an uninformed parent. Physicians PXH
have frequently; stated that ndenoida ., H
result from the,ise,;of ,tho dummy PPJ

ChtHymnnnd',fnsuej'TmaJ;qu'a- hyper- laTafJ
trophy (adenoids) occasions nnsal ob . ; ""'"'tPJ
traction, narrowing of the roof of tho Y" T'PPPl
mouth nnd nnsal passages, interfcr- jfl
enco with respiration, nnd insufficient "
development of the chest. The nntural k PPJ
result is u weakly, anaemic child, . PPJ
which constantly "catches cold." On rfPJ
this account the mother overdresses ftPJ
the little one, and as it plays or l-unn PPJ
nbout, often with difficulty, it be- Pfl
comes overheated and, ts physical PPJ
development is impaired. pPJ
This improper practice constant- "'SI
ly sucking on something mny be ,&
similarly ascribed to tonsilar enlarge- ' PPJ
About ten per cent of school chil- I PPJ
dren have enlnrgcd tonsils. It is prob- J PPJ
able that thu poisoning which causca IpBfl
many diseases heart and systom, 'v !
(rheumatism) is here centered. tPBBI
Children often arc' improperly fed, ' PPJ
with the result that nearly 70 per- ' pjv
cent of school children hnve dental pmV
caries. When decay sets in early, tho PPJ
teeth become septic, poisoning the ajV
breath and also the food eaten so that PPJ
infection is frequent. Decayed teeth PPJ
afford ready passnge for disease
germs into tho system. Largo num- PPJ
hers, of children have tubercular , PPJ
glands, which in the opinion of many PPJ
nre incident to such foci. kPBfl
In view of these facts, it is not pmv
surprising thnt many children and PPJ
persons in nfter life nre found phys- PPJ
icnlly in an unfit condition. If these PPJ
two groups could receive the attention pav
thnt their physical condition demands PPJ
would not industrial workers nnd PPJ
mnnkind generally be directly benefit- ajv
ted. This would require systematic .. PPJ
physical instruction, examinations, ' - PPJ
and records with follow-up work of a . PPJ
very extensive character. Much dis- ' PPJ
ease would be avoided and the sav- ., 'PPJ
ing in misery would be considerable v
The investment of the taxpayer would PPJ
be returned with heavy interest.
Personal health and public health PPJ
can bo improved by carefully repeat- pjv
ed physical examinations, properly di- PPJ
reeled. In addition provision must bo PPJ
made for bathing under sanitary con- PPJ
ditions, in children, extension of tha :
already adopted plan of open air Hf PPJ
schools and careful physical instruc- v
tion. These no doubt will solve many PPJ
of the problems of disease incident to PPJ
school life.
Preventive treatment must bo built PPJ
up slowly, cautiously but persistently. PPJ
Mother-craft should be taught to all f
girls and elementary physical in-
struction commenced as early as pos-
siblc. For teachers nnd instructors, Jpmj
the principles of prevention must bo PPj
mado plnin and comprehensible nnd "PIP
practical application mnde to give ad- jJ-PBfl
vice and aid in instruction. The' api ;, i PBj
plication must be systematic and rou? . !
tine. ' '" . '
Children with physical defects must ,
be kept under observation; the teeth y
kept sound, their bodies sustained in f
condition by suitnblc open air cxer- ',
cises. and by proper nnd ndequato 'iPfl
