D. H. MASON - - - - editor and Pnpletor Entered at the Covington postomie as Seeond-lar 3af6g THE HEAITHIEST SPOT IN AMERICA. ('ov:ngt n, La., has won such a wonderful reputation as a health re son t, that it has been reported to be the healthiest spot in America. Many :,p,.l hlae regained their health here whom physicians had given no hi,: for recovery. In the heart of the 'Ozone Belt," its pure air and, w;eter.- eoven into legends and Indian lore and mantled with the per ft,,toi rosy- and a world of flowers, the shadows of sickness were chased :vaay by the light of hope and confidence. Many of these people have ak.or forgotten what they owe to Covington. W\hen they return home they :ell others how they were snatched from the grave, and they repeat wh;n, they have heard about covington being the healthiest spot in Amre: ica. t '3ut whoe physician. who are professionally interested in knowing just v..hy we are entitled to this reputation for health 'begin investigations they find "iothing in sa pport of this claim beyond the generally accepted rep.ort of people who make the statement. That C-vington is a remarkably healthy place there is no doubt. IBUT i'ROVE IT. If we could say to the inquirer, government statistics are behind us in this matter, write to the bureau at Washington and you will be gi.en the figures-what an attractive advertsiement that would be. W\VE .i'MIGT l',: ABLE TO DO THIS NOW IF WE HAD FURNISHED T' iE (;OVERNMENT WITH VITAL STATISTICS The State Board of Health has tlime and again urged the importance of a complete record of births and deaths. Local Registrars have (been established in the towns of the parish and the law provides a penalty for failure of physicians and midwives to report births and deaths. Here tofore the law has not been enforced, ,but Dr. Maylie, who is registrar for Covington, says he intends to see that the law is obeyed within his juris d;ction. He intends to prosecute those who do not make returns to him. Several efforts have been made recently to establish the fact that Cov ington is the healthiest place in America. Among the investigators was the Covington Association of Commerce, the matter being placed in the hands of Dr. Maylie, who had .been informed that a map had recently (been seen in Washington which gave this distinction to Covington. Hon. J. Y. Sanders got busy at the request of Dr. Maylie ank the in vestigation was thorough. The Bureau of Public Health Service and other departments were searched for some record to sustain the claim. Of course none was found, BECAUSE WE HAD KEPT NO lRECORD OURSELVES AND THE GOVERNMENT WAS UNABLE TO MAKE ANY COMPARISON 'BETWEEN COVINGTON AND OTHER SECTIONS. Sur geon General Rupert Blue said in a postscript to his letter: "You may Ibe interested to know that a similar inquiry concern ing Covington, La., was addressed to this Bureau some mopths ago. At that time very careful investigations were made, not only in the Public Health Service but in other Government Bureaus to discover the source of the statement referred to but this was entirely fruitless." SO MUCH COULD BE ACCOMPLISHED FOR COV'I'NGTON IF THE PEOPLE WOULD ONLY TAKE ENOUGH INTEREST IN THE TOWN TO ('()-O'PERATE IN DOING THINGS THAT SHOULD BE DONE AND IN SEEING THAT LAWS THAT SHOU'LD BE ENFORCED ARE ENFORCED. It is the duty of every good citizen :o keep in touch with the administra tion of the town affairs. He should know what is 'being done and what is not being done and the why and wherefore of it all. It is the only way he can secure to himself the blessings of good government. WHY NO EXCUIRSIONS TO COVINGTON? In times of epidemic and sickness the towns of St. Tammany parish have thrown open their doors to New Orleans. They have been a haven of rest to the overworked and a sanitarium to the afflicted. The greatest city of the South has used St. Tammany ,parish as the nearest and cfneap est place for an outing for the working class and for people without the means to travel far, and no doubt has been greatly benefited thereby in its health. During war times no action of the government was questioned, and when the N. O. G. 'N. withdrew its excursions the people reasoned that the government must not be hampered by criticism. But now that ex cursions are being 'put on to other places it i4 difficult to see why the people should be deprived of excursions to the the towns of St. Tammany. Aside from the discrimination against the business interests of the par ish, it is a hardship upon people who have looked forward to a healthful rest and recuperation from the effects of the strenuous times of the past few years. Wealthy people may go and come where they please and when they please, but the poor must scan carefully the money that is in the purse and can not go far from home for rest and health. Covington, for one, will not submit to this injustice withopt expending every effort to have it corrected. The matter should be brought to the attention of the Railroad Commission immediately. SHEEP OWNERS SHOULD H+ILP. The past week ground glass was thrown into the yard of Mr. O. W. Brown, Covington, and a very valuable dog was poisoned. Mr. Brown is willing to give $100.00 to find out who did it. As his dogs never leave the yard and are shut up at night, he feels that he has :been treated very shabily, and that he has been unlawfully deprived of property. Sheep men usually get the 'blame for such occurrences, but as a matter of fact, we believe most sheep men are very fair in the handling of the dog question. Some of them have dogs themselves. If any one has a sheep-killing dog he is apt to be notified that he ifn be held responsible and if the dog is caught killing sheep he will not be given an opportunity to kill more. IBut the sheep owner is usually law a'biding and recognizes the lawful rights of others. 'But there is a class of people who do not seem tb hesitate to throw poison into the yards where dogs are, even at the risk of poisoning cattle or human beings, because some time back poisoned candy was thrown into a yard. We believe if sheep owners would help to tind those who criminally throw poison into yards some of them might be caught and punished. Such a man would not hesitate to tell a sheep man what he had done, be cause he considers he has done a friendly act. On the other hand, the sheep man would make a friend of the dog owner 'by showing he was just and fair and would encourage him to use every effort to see that his dog was not given a chance to run with sheep. It would also do away with the feeling of vindictiveness that might cause some dog owners to re taliate by keeping worthless dogs that would do nothing else but chase sheep. The sheep man and the dog owner should be friendly and help each other solve this difficult problem of sheep 'protection and dog protection. Both have rights that should not conflict with each other. (URB MARKET NOTES. Mrs. H. H. Smith, chairman of the Curb Market Committee, announces that the market will open at 9 a. m., instead of at eight, as heretofore, and close at eleven.
