The town authorities are trying thelir
Sbest to get our town in as good sanitary
Sconditionll as I)ossible and we call on
all residents of the town to give us
their hearty co-operation. We have
but yery little sickness of any kind in
our midst atpresent, and we hope that
no contagious or infectious disease of
any kind will visit us, but in the event
that it does, the cleaner our town is,
the easier it will be tocombat it. You
are therefore requested to thoroughly
c.ean and disinfect all outbuildings.
Clean up and burn all weeds and rub- 2 I
bibh of any kind. If you have no
mosquito tight screens over your cis- ste
Itrns, it would be well to put them on.
Also oil all cesspools and stagnant
water of every kind. Many of these su
suggestions can be enforced by law,
but we hope none of our citizens will biM
be so inditfferent to the public welfare St
as to force us to apply the law There
