portion of city was being seriously

A Question of Drainage
If anybody doubts the absolute
neccessity of drainage in this city,
it is only necessary to take a look
at some of our streets after a ra.n.

making travel very unpleasant,
which is a small part of the harm
that may result. The health of
the city is endangered to a large
extent, a fact which no one can
deny, and where the people's
health is concerned proivpt action
should be taken. Of course in the
summer when evaporation is rapid
the danger is less great, but when
the iainy season- begins, and the
ground is thoroughly saturated,
the matter should be remedied as
far as possible. The Herald is
glad to learn some work will be
done at once in this line, but it
will not do to stop at a little drain
age here and there. Many people
accent whatever comes along and
never ask to nave conditions Dei
tered, never thinking, perhaps,
that the cause of sickness in their
family is directly due to stagnant
water collected in low places,
breeding disease and mosquitoes.
Our city has the making of one
of the healthiest and most beautiful
places in the south, but it can not
be done without labor, and the
expenditure of some money. This
writer has many times heard strang
ers comment upon the lack of
drainage of our streets, and these
comments are not always the most
complimentary. Now, The Her
ald hopes the good work which is
to be done in the upper portion
will extend over the entire city,
and our city council will receive
the heartiest thanks of the whole
people, and feel conscious that it
had contributed iargely to the
healthy condition of Brownsville.
Of course it is not expected the
work could all be done at once,
but "large things from small be
ginnings grow," and theAvork just
commenced could be carried on as
the circumstances would permit.
