CLEAN UP; GET BUSY.
Excellent Watchword For a Town to
Bucyrus. O.. has started a cleaning up
campaign, and the following excellent
methods that have been suggested for
beautifrinsr the town may;. well be
adopted by other places: j
"Clean up" is the watchword.
Health demands it,, appearance re
quires it and good sense points the
way, says the Bucyrus Evening Tele
graph. : ' '
In some localities a "clean up" day is
popular. -."" ; . -
In some localities one day proves In
sufficient. Clean up everybody, everything and
every place. . t- '
There is a lot of useless stuff that ac
cumulates throughout the year. Spring
Is the time to get it all out of way and
get that sweet, clean smell "and the
appearance which means . much to
health and happiness., '
The doctors suggest a "spring tonic"
to get the blood in proper circulation
and the brain to doing Its proper work.
" Get the lnggish feeling out of your
veins and . muscles and get free,
healthy action of every organ.
That Is a good thing for the-.human
system, but It is a good thing for the
community as a municipality. s
The street force is already, at this
good work. "1
Many householders have taken it up
and will pursue it to a finish. -
Others should start, wi'ioiit delay.

Bucyrus, O., is a city of wide reputa
tion for beauty and the advanced ideas
of her citizens. ! ; '
Bucyrus has fine lawns and fine
shade trees and beautiful homes'.' We
want to strengthen that reputation.
We are told there are some men idle
in Bucyrus. They will be glad to
work, because this is the pleasant kind
of work. They say some days the busi
ness man has leisure which he could
devote to cleaning up his premises.
That sort of work will make his home
look better, make himself feel better
and do the town good.
The business men are all working
for the good of the town.
They all want the place to have the
best possible reputation.
