BOARD OF HEALTH NOTES.
Health Officer Heard on Gives Advice
as to Cleaning Up.
Right now is $he. time to get in
the habit of putting a trash box or
barrel right by the back steps or
kitchen door and throwing your
empty cans and other waste matter
into the box or barrel. Don't throw
your cans in the yard and then have
to go out and pick them all up again,
put them into the trash receptacle
direct from the house, then put out
the trash box or barrel a least three
times a week before ten o'clock in
Keep up this rule of having your
trash box handy right at the back
door and see how little trouble it
will be to keep your back yard clean
and sanitary- And see how much la?
bor will be saved by avoiding the
necessity of picking up tin cans and
other refuse, which you ordinarly
throw out in the yard, awaiting the
opportunity to pick up again when
there is no use and little sense in
ever throwing In the yard.
Get busy before mosquito breed?
ing time filling up any low places,
draining any places that hold water,
If you cannot conveniently fill them
up, examine the coverings of your
cess-pools to see that there are no
small cracks or holes that mosqultos
or files may enter.
Get In the habit of pouring kero?
sene oil through your pipes at least
once every ten days so that the oil
will get Into the cesspools and de?
stroy any mosqultos that may be
hatched In the cesspool.
Clean out your house gutters now.
By examining the gutters you will
surely find them clogged up with
leaves. You will also nine out of ten
times find that they are sagging and
holding some water for days after
every rain. Remember that a gill of
rain water remaining In the gutter
for five days means mosquito breed?
If you have any ditches or other
drains on your premises have them
cleaned often and keep a little kero?
sene oil in the drains. No matter
whether there Is any water in the
ditches or drains, or no water. Pour
in the oil. When It rains the oil will
show Itself all right.
Managers of manufacturing plants,
ware houses, depots and platforms
and at all places where barrels of
water are kept for fire protection,
should keep kerosene oil In the wa?
ter constantly until mosquito time is
Keep disinfectants in your cess?
pools, and ashes or dry earth, or
lime In your surface closets.
Best of all connect your house or
business establishment with the sew?
erage system. Cesspools must go In
time, and the time Is much uhorter
than you Imagine It to be.
A sweeping regulation abolishing
every cess pool in Sumter may be
put into effct within a short time.
There is no use in standing back
to "take the limit" on connecting
your house, or business placf with
the sewerage system. If you are not
connected and the antl-cesspo d law
Is suddenly launched you will be de?
prived of the use of your bnth tub,
toilets, wash basins, kitchen sinks,
until you do connect them with the

HOW TO CURE RHEUMATISM.
It Is an Internal Disease and Re?
quires an Internal Remedy.
The cause of Rheumatism and kin?
dred diseases is an excess of uric acid
In the blood. To cure this terrible dis?
ease this acid must be expelled and
the system so regulated that no more
acid will be formed in excessive quan?
tities. Rheumatism is an internal
disease and requires an Internal rem?
edy. Rubbing with Oils and Lini?
ments will not cure, affords only tem?
porary relief at best, causes you to
delay the proper treatment, and al?
lows the rr.alady to get a firmer hold
on you. Liniments may ease the pain,
but they will no more cure Rheuma?
tism than paint will change the fibre
of rotten wood.
Science has at last discovered a
perfect and complete euro, which ?1
called "Rheumacide." Tested In hun?
dreds of cases, it has effected the
most marvelous cures; we believe it
will cure you. Rheumacide "g*ts at
the Joints from the inside," sweeps
the poisons out of the system, tones
up the stomach regulates the liver
and kidneys and makes you well all
over. Rheumacide "strikes the roots
of the disease and removes its cause."

WHY XOT JOIN?
A fircat Many Business Men Are Not
Momberg of the Chamber of Com?
I wish to appeal through your
space to the men of Sumter in behalf
of the Chamber of Commerce. I
looked over the books of the treas?
urer a few days ago and was sur
prlrad to find that the roll did not
yet number one hundred; in fact, it
was Quite a distance from thai ma?k.
I was surprised too not at tho names
I did flr.d on It. but at the nanns that
I d-d net find on it.
The C--mmittee that arranged tli:
l.'st s tl'tker found th i name* of
n .)<?!:" thiee hundred m?n who w re
considered of enough business impor?
tance to belong to the Chamber, and
the November smoker was attended
by about 160 men. These probably
consider themselves members of the
Chamber, but if they do not get on
the books of the treasurer, i. e., if
they have not paid their dues, they
are not helping much in the work of
the Chamber. Sumter needs the
Chamber, and the Chamber needs
members; needs workers and needs
friends. The Chamber does good; it
may not hurrah much, but it is at work
as every citizen can ascertain by keep?
ing in touch with President Jennings
and his committeemen. The more
Impetus behind the efforts, the furth?
er the results will go.
The next smoker will be held soon.
If you who read this are not mem?
bers why not Join now? Don't put
it off; you are eager today, indiffer?
ent tomorrow, and have forgotten
about it the third day. Let us make
the Chamber a very live body: let us
do It now.

years and whenever I attempted to

My back became very week and on
several occasions I was forced to give
up my work. My family physician
treated me without giving me any re?
lief from the awful pains in my back
and I then tried every known remedy
on the market but still failed to be
benefited. I at last read a testimo?
nial regarding Doan's Kidney Pills
and was so much impressed that I
procured a box of this remedy at
