PREPARE FOR CLEAN-UP WEEK MEETINGS WILL PROBABLY BE school to ABBA CALLED SHORTLY TO ARRANGE CAMPAIGN AGAINST DIRT AND during he week designaed. There is great need for a clean up week in Bismarck. There are scrag gly trees to be trimmed, dirty alleys to be cleaned, yards to be raked, piles of ashes, rubbish and old tin cans to be hauled away, a winter's collection of miscellaneous debris to be carted to the dumping grounds. There are bill boards in. the city hiding vacant lots. These 1 boards in many cases have been used simply as a screen be hind which refuse has been thrown. There is need of a clean up week. A clean.up day is not enough. With a whole weeks campaign a live com mittee could accompO^h something worth while. It is imperative that cleanliness be secured. The Tribune has started this agitation for cleanup week with the honest desire to see the city made more beaulful. Other cities in the western part of the state have taken up the suggestion. It is now up to the residents of the capital to do their share to make Bismarck's clean-up week a success. Rubbish and refuse, and piles of filth are a distinct menace to public health. They breed germs, typhoid, tubercular and others. They are the breeding place of flies which carry more disease in one year than can be combatted in a score of years- It is a question of whether you want to help assure better public health. Clean-up week is coming. Every citizen should make his plans to do his individual share as a citizen, to beautify his home surroundings as much as possible. In this manner all will share in the general good which will resclt. The city will be cleaner, healthier, and vastly more beautiful to the eyes of the casual visitors, thousands of whom will spend some time in the city during the ensuing few months.

The week ending Monday, April 22, has been designated as clean-up week in the capital city. People are already commencing to make prepar. lations for their campaign against dirt and filth and unsightly refuse. It is probable that a meeting of the civic improvement league and the comercial club will be cahed to de vise a systematic campaign to be carried out. This has been done in other cities.

The English make a great ado over fox hunting. A fox chase is an event, social and otherwise. Following the hounds is sport, real sport, wild and exhillrating.

There have been a few cases of mumps reported among the school c'.iilr'ren of Bismarck. Those afflicted with this disease have been notif'ud to remain at home until they are well, in offer that none of the other schol ars might catch it.

CARD OF THANKS Friends among strangers. During my short time in Bismarck, which was only a few days, I did not have the pleasure of meeting and making acquaintance with only a few of the many good hearted people re siding in your capital city. Although we are almost strangers to the people of Bismarck at the time we barely es caped with our lives from the Main street fire, the people came to us one and all and we wish to thank the Knights of Pythias and Elks and hope to meet all these good people who have done so much and contributed so freely to us.
