The Herald and News failed to get
blank returns in the election boxes for
the primary which is to be held today,
before the boxes went out. "VVe hope
that the managers at the various precincts
will phone the results or send
them to us just as soon as the votes
are counted. The result in this county
should be known by 6 o'clock at latest
on Tuesday afternoon.
We notice that the United States
government has issued an order,
through the treasury department,
which has jurisdiction over the public
health service, that direct the officials

Include such vigilance as will "examine

There is no doubt that nearly all of
the passenger trains which are run
into this State at least, are in a more
tor l.ess unsanitary condition, and if
the government lias authority to supervise,
as no doubt it has, and will take
hold of the matter, that the spread of
contagious and infectious diseases may
be very much reduced. The- traveling
public has become so accustomed to
the unclean and unsanitary condition
of nearly all passenger coaches that
this condition is taken for granted and
no protest S raised. Anyone who trav
els, however, in any of the passenger
coaches on the railroads in thtg State,
even the best of them, if he will observe
just a little, will have no trouble
in reaching the conclusion that
something is needed to make these
coaches cleaner and more sanitary. If
the railroad people themselves will not
give* attention to cleanliness, they

in a well-heated, and sometimes overheated,
passenger coach, along with
all classes and conditions of people,
is "to suffer a penalty through the olfactories
as well as by the sense of
sight." As 6ome one 6ays, this innovation,
if it be an innovation, on the
part of the federal government, is a
step toward that federal recognition
of the disease devil which has so long
and inexcusably been .missing.
