Mr. Carey lived here many years ago.
He weut to Hofflund and took up a de
sert claim and where irrigated tbe glass
was from two to three feet high last
summer and in one little spot on his
farm which was unusually high, he
could not.get water to it. The grass
there was but a few inches high, de
monstrating the value of irrigation.

to an interesting "chalk talk" given by
Mr. F. L. Bohn, Chief Deputy of tbe or

Gentlemen of this Board: We have
met here to qualify as the Board of
Health of Williams county for the ensu
ing year,, The honorable coinpussioners
have seen fif. to appoint us tQ,ottf various
positions to took,after the health of our
citizens and the sanitary conditions of
our county. The state has so composed
the board that it is a democratic organ
ization, consisting of the law, the medi
cal profession.and the people. It Is our
duty to make our rules and regulations
so plain that the laity can understand
them, and need not err. It shall be our
burden to prevent the spread cf conta
gion and infection—to
that our water,
fopd, andall stippo*ed carriers.of. conta*
ion and infection,, are qlgan and pure,
is a bill on ppre food laws before
our present senate and house, and may
it not be curtailed and amended so that
its virtues are lost. It is our duty to see
that our dairymen bring us no milk from
cOws affected with tuberculosis or lumpy
jaw that our butchers kill us only heal
thy meat and serve it to us clean that
our bakers use no alum in their bread
or yellow ochre in their rolls that our
grocers sell us no canned embalmed
meats. These commodities of life are
essential to our well being, and we
should so guard them that they prove
not to be carriers of sickness and disease*
To do this will requite tbe support of
each member of the board, aud the co
operation of the citizens of the county.
We are taught to-day to believe that
contagion and infection are caused by
germs, and that plain dirt makes a good
field for tbem to breed and propagate.
If by keeping our habitations and sur
roundings clean, our garbage and refuse
carted off, unslaked lime, or its equiva
lent, in our outhouses, we can prevent
an endemic in our town or county, our
task has been small and our benefit
great. We have all the natural require
ments for a healthy community, if we
live up to these rules.
It ifi the duty of every parent, if a
child is sick with a sore throat and fever,
to trail in their physician, and should he
pronounce it diphtheria, to notrty the
health officer that he ma quarantine
