THE HEALTH OF THE
CITY OF ORANGEB?RG
The health of a community is its
most valuable asset. This facts be
comes better recognized, and is
more regarded as the world ?rows
in civilization. Prehistoric man
roamed the world, thinking that all
sickness was caused by some unfor
tunate anger of the gods, and
sought to appease the gods in the
hopes that the bodily disease with
which ho suffered would be cured
not knowing that disease was caused
by himself in his ignorance. Even
our own forefathers never knew that
there was such things as germs, in
habiting the human body by the mil
lions . If you had told one of them
that there were a million igerms in a
single drop of water, he would have
called you a fool.
But with the increase of know
ledge the health of a 'community has
been regarded with greater care, and
now the process is going on by which
methods of cure will be cast aside
for methods of prevention. Our fore
fathers believed in bleeding a pa
tient, and many times took away the
very strength which the sufferer
needed to go through his sickness.
Now in the modern scientific treat
ment of disease they do not bleed a
patient, but in many instances, infuse
more blood into him. The discovery
that typhoid fever was carried by a
mosquito, that flies were the car
riers o." much sickness, and that small
pox could be prevented by vaccina
tion are all forerunners of anEra
Our country, as a nation, is behind
none in the progress of medical skill.
The splendid example set the world
by our physicians at Cuba and Pana
ma, have shown that these tropical
countries can be freed from typhoid,
malaria, and other tropical diseases
when the proper care is taken. The
wonderful sanitary results at Pana
ma has made the canal a possibility.
At each station where travellers from
foreign countries seek to enter our
country there is a United States quar
antine station, where tho entire shin
i home. So, we say, if you are look
ing for that sort of a place, come to
Orangeburg is not a health resort
It is not put down In books as in that
class. It makes no claim for its
medicinal waters on the one hand,
nor does it look disdainfully from a
lofty perch to the sea. We are
plain Orangeburg, S C. but we are
healthy just the same.
Fortunately Orangeburg was built
healthy in the beginning It is about
a mile from the banks of the Edisto
and has a splendid natural drainage
ditch on the North and South sides
of the city emptying into the river
on the West. It is situated on a
high point, it is always dry, with a
top soil of sand.
The water used in the greater
part of the city is furnished by the
city from deep wells and the law re
quiring (that an analysis be made ev
ery sixty days is strictly compiled
with. The city has a sewerage sys
tem covering the business portion
and leading residential section, the
outlet being the swift flowing Edis
to, one mile away. The box system
in used in closets and removed by
the city and disposed of outside the
Orangeburg dwellings are not
congested. We keep room for fresh
air, sunshine, green trees and a
green lawn in front for the health of
the young generation. We do not sac
rifice health necessities for dollars.
We build our houses with a drive
way on the side, a garden in the rear
and away from the dust in front.
Another thing: Orangeburg, prac
tices preventive medicine. An active
board of health and health officers,
with a sympathetic city council, give
to the people free and unlimited use
of disinfectants in the Spring and
summer months, using perhaps more
than any other city of like size in the
State. Intelligent people use it glad
ly and freely around stables and clos
ets, and the ignorant and careless
are forced to use it by the health of
cer, who has police power, ofr the
health of the community.
There is a health map of the city
of Orangeburg. Every house where
there is an infectious disease is
marked and kept under supervision
and made to follow the requirements

When we consider the question lo
cally we find that Orangeburg has
been for the longest, entirely free
from all epidemics. Charleston has
had her. yellow fever, Spartanburg
her small-pox,' but Orangeburg has
had her peace and health. The meth
ods of prevention have had a lot lo
do inthls. For instance when the
tramp last winter was about to pass
through our town, he was met by of
ficers who haltefd him, erected a
tent, put guards over him to see that
no one approached him and that he
was kept in quarantine. A3 a re
sult our city was probably saved
from a '.-mall-pox epidemic. Mr.
Merchant, consider how much trade
you would have lost had it become
generally known that small pox was
raging in Orangeburg.
From viewing the question in the
respect of communities, we come to
that of private individuals. When
you begin looking for a home for
yourself and family, you want a
healthy place; where the little chil
dren can run and jump and play
with red blood in their veins and
plenty of fresh air and sunshine. You
want a place where you can work
without being harassed by the con
stant phantom of death, and the
presence of the trained nurse in your
I of the health laws In some negro
houses where patient has died from
consumption the owner at the re
quest of the board of health, has
had the house thoroughly white
washed and scoured. The health of
ficer makes It his special duty to lo
calize any point of infection and pre
vent Ks spread by all approved metb
ods of disinfection and isolation.
These are some of the things that
contribute to Orangeburg's remark
able health record. For the immun
ity from epidemics of infectious and
contagious diseases has been up to
the present time very fortunate con
sidering the great transient travel
ing public and daily visitors to Or
angeburg. If any disease seeds are
left in Orangeburg, the board of
health strives to germicide them out
of existence. -r Through the assis
tance of the State board of health
and the State health officer, with the
aid of the columns of newspapers,
editorially and otherwise. Orange
burg is up in the front of this era of
health movement and we ask you to
register Orangeburg as already up
and doing and awake to the needs of
the hour. We are richly endowed
in many respects but we prize our
temple of health sacredly. Orange- J turg.
burg invites companionship with all
who are healthy in mind and pur

Good Advertising Should Sustain It
self by New Business.
When you advertise in the local
paper, what's your theory of pay
ment? Do you figure that you will
pay for the ad out of the profits of
the business it brings In, or out. of
your normal, veery day cash receipts?
It's a poor advertisement that can
not pull its own weight In the boat.
The biggest advertisers in the coun
try aim to make their advertising
sustain itself. They pay for it out of
increased business. A manufacturer
ot popular candies says: "Neither the
dealers nor his customers pay for
our advertising. It is paid by the
growth of our business through ad
vertising which enables us to save
enough in cost of salesmen, superin
tendence, rents, Interest and use of
the plant to cover most, if not all of
our adevertising bills."
In other words advertising makes
it possible to get the mots oui of
your investment. It makes your
store and your fixed charges bring
in the biggest poslble results to the
square Inch. The bigger your vol
ume of advertising grows the bigger
should be your business, and the
more efficient work you should be
able to get out of every dollar you
Advertising should not merely
make enough to pay 'for itself out
of the profits, but it should Increase
the "square inch" earning capacity
of your clerks and your store front,
and your delivery wagons and your
nice and expensive fixtures, so that
the profits on the goods sold would
be all profit, and the economies in
management and efficiency would pay
for the advertising.
It takes good advertising to figure
out that way, but if you are keen to
take advantage of the help being
offered you from various sources,
you can get out the right kind of ad
WE'RE NOT KNOCKING.
But D?ing Everything for the Ad
vancement of Orangeburg.
We don't want any town to think
that because we are getting out this
special booster edition, we are trying
to knock any other town. The Times

considers the fact that it repre

We don't mea nto run down any
town; but just as a man sees his
neighbor build a better house next
door to his, he welcomes It, know
ing that in beautifying that part of

property more valuable; we know
that the people of Orangeburg coun
ty will heartily endorse what has

The merchants of Orangeburg will
be glad to see you in their city.
VIR. COUNTRY MERCHANT:
Just because you live in a town where there is no
newspaper is no reason why you should not advertise.
There is some one paper that is read in your town and
surrounding vicinity more than any other, and that paper
is THE TIMES AND DEMOCRAT. Don't take our
word for it. Investigate. Find out.
And when you have found out, write to the man
ager of The Times and Democrat and let him quote you
rates on an advertising campaign during the fall and
coming spring seasons. Remember THE TIMES AND

the number of any other two papers in Orangeburg coun
