I This is the obituary of a tree. For
100 years nnd Tnoro it stood squarely in
' the middle of the north sidewalk on
Franklin Street, between Sixth and
Seventh?tall as the hip hospital across
the street, as big around at the base
as the hoRsbeads In which tobacco is
parked.
Sinners of the Declaration of Inde

(sturdy youngster of ten. When General
Le?' took up his temporary abode al
most within its shadows it was a plant

i The Franklin Street sycamore was
i more than a tree?it was a monument.
| Writers have Riven it place in stories
of enrly Richmond. A painter has itn

span. Six generations of Riehmonders
have done it honor.
When it was voting It stood In the
purlieus of fashion. Hard by it stood
th?* Archer House, famous in Rich
mond's annals. The beaux and belles of
war days, and the statesmen of troub
lous periods trod over its roots. Hut
fashion went westward and left the old
retainer behind. In Its old age the tree
stooil sadly in a busy thoroughfare
redolent of gasoline, noisy with many
motors, banked by mighty skyscrapers.
It Is said that the Franklin Street
sycamore was 1 2<i years old. In recent
years its arms had become weak. The
leaves, once dense and plentiful, had
become few. Everywhere on its massive
trunk were the scales and furrows of
tzr.
'J'he tree doctors f*arne and applied

The heavy rnins that havP swept Vlr-'l

ably caused th*? pollution of many wells'
; and have incrensen to such an extent
h?. ,avI1RCJ ?f ,h" -sPrPA'1 of typhoid
th.it th? State Hoard of Health vps
| terdn.v issued a public warning on' th*
subject. ?
i'urinc :1k- last few days the board
.has received several reports 0f minor
; outbreaks in various rural communities !
investigation of these outbreaks bv offl
jcers of the board has shown that thai
? infection in som?i instances was evi- 1
j dentlv due to the pollution of the wells
; washing rains. The hoard points
| ou; that this constitutes a permanent
I source of danger unless proper precau- '
t on? are taken. Sometimes it happens, i
I according to the board, that the water:
j suppl\ of a family or of a community i
liteomos polluted by underground seep- '
j iK*1. but for one such case there are
usually many where the water supply
I becomes dangerous by reason of sur
1 face washing.

"To protect a well or spring from
surface washing is not," says the hul
j letln of the board, "a dlfllcult or ex -
| pensive undertaking in case of a
spring, if it is well located and fenced
off so that animals cannot reach it. only
two things are usually necessary to'
fee that the sprint branch is clear and'
will not back into the spring, and, sec- 1
ondly, to ditch around the spring on
th'; grade above it. in such a manner'
that water washing down grade will be
carried off and will not. reach the
spring.
"In the case of a well the wall should
be raised above the surf?<f- of th* sur
rounding ground and should be made
watertight. It is a mistake to leave
crevices for 'ventilation.' A good well,
does not need 'ventilation.' The open i
tops of wells are so often a source of
danger and the open buckets ho fre
quently become polluted that every well
should be supplied with a pump and
covered with watertight tongue and
grocve timber. If the?e precautions
are taken there is no danger that the
spring or the well will be polluted from
surface bathing."

States for J 1,472, as a result of havlrip
been required to carry gold by parce

does not require the transportation ol
gold in this manner. In addition, the

it demands pay for the transportation
