" v Several communities in Florida are now arous ing public sentiment and enthusiasm in favor of anti-mosquito, work. Recently the state' board j of health has rendered assistance and given pre liminary aid at Grace ville, in Jackson county, Pensacola, in Escambia . county ; Chipley, f in Washington county ; Cocoa and Merritts Island, in Brevard county; Fernandina, in Nassau coun ty, and Winter Park and Mainland, in Orange county. At all these places work wiy ultimate 1 ybe under way in earnest to eliminate mosqui toes. The bureau of engineering of the state board of health is strongly urging this work and is lending every assistance possible ot its; suc cessful realization. I:1:"' WEDNESD.'.' MORNING, MAY 21. 1319. MORE THAN CREED. With that same spirit that ha3 animated every drive in which the- people of Pensacola and Escambia county are interested, the Salvation Army drive will be carried over the top, and thisH city and section will make a record of which to be proud. Already every indication is given that the campaign will be a success, but it cannot be that success which it should be unless every man and woman in this city and section lends to it that co-operation that it deserves. ' y i Whatever the faith or whatever the creed, the Salvation Army makes an appeal to every man and woman, for it stands for something more than a religious sect, it stands for something wider than a church or an institution it stands for the Christ spirit, the love of humanity, the power of the spoken word and Ihegeneres act. No one for a moment doubfts t?ut; tha ie Sal vation Army drive will be a success. But those who have the work close at, heart, who have known the power,of this army of Christian work 5rs and have seen the splendid results achieved, will feel that it is not enough to put the drive over, or even to over-subscribe the quota, but that the thing to do is to put it over with such Bsaaaeaasss g;ssaas;sa I XEGISLATORS AND LEGISLATION BBSaHBB.BSBEBSSBBSSI spirit thatrit woll be. a eatnhlpffw tSlSet instruction pJ at he work that the Salvation Army has done, not . aTv1 t.A immlat omnlnvmt: ' " Mr. Hendricks asserts that state expenditures only at the front, but since it first had its in spiration in the heart of a man who loved his fel lowman and sought to comfort and to serve. TAX BONUS PLAN -To encourage building operations immediately and on a large scale, the Manufacturer's Record recently suggested that municipalities, and even state governments, might to great advantage of fer to eliminate all taxation for five years upon all building improvements undertaken at. ' the present time. The idea has been received with much favor, and Mr. G. A. Hendricks of Grand Rapids, Mich., has issued a pamphlet carrying out the same idea, which he has entitled "Hen dricks Tax Bonus Plan." . In the plan a graded schedule of tax bonus per iod' is "outlined for the first-year, secondiyear, third year, and fourth year builders. For the first year builders he proposes that the owner who builds at once and who starts during the first year receive a tax bonus of three additional years. No loans nor guarantees from the state are. wanted other than inert taxes on improve ments for a period of four years. Builders op erating during the econd rear to receive ! the benefit of the inert four years, with a bonus of two years ; builders operating during the third year to get the inert period of four years, with a bonus of one year, and the fourth year build ers are to get the inert year tax only. Under this plan it is seen the greatest inducements are offered to immediate builders, which is the main Monk Harrison, of Tampa, can per haps devise more ways to make his friends feel grateful toward V him than any other, man In Florida. Several -people around the capital are enjoy ing good Tampa clears by fhouslit fulness of Monk. He denies that he rent the Hon. Amos 3wi3 that tele gram from Tampa," invitln? him to go 'to the cigar city and look 'em over, with a -view to hitchin. up, but then there is some thinss people won't take Monk's word for.. The legislature is now facing the problem of th session. The general appropriation bill carries vtround, . n million and a half dollars. The prob lem Is to shave this downfto fit the resources of the state or to ; build. up the resources of the state, to fit the appropriation bill. The general reve nue bill will be considered along with the appropriation bill, that Is as soon as one is finished the. other will be taken up. Until thcf two bills are t,ettled many of the : legislators will perhaps have night mares , not pro educed by inward refreshments. - Naturally it"" would b. considered a Mrtc6f out of thewa "place torvcupid to be ' monkeying around me- legisla tive halls of the state, where so mani of the grave " affairs of life have to do with the' proceeoings, but the little minx is always mixing up with th affairs of the sessions, and this o c is no exception to the general rule. It is ruifjored that an announcement cupld ha sto do with is forthcoming, perhaps," soon, that will interest the state from one end 'to the? other; The irony of the supreme court, de cision, permitting a man to. have four quarts in his possession when there is no way on earth for him to get the four quarts has done nothing to ward quenching the thirst of, tho?e about the capital. If it has opened f, way in any other section of Ve Mate, the news wouia oe .weicoroeu here. Y , , It is said that too many cooks spoil the broth, It is hoped , the rule I" susceptible of some exceptions, oth erwise there will be no good roads legislation at this session. The com plication grows as the days go by, but ' perhaps a Moses will rise up for the occasion and lead , the legis lators out of the confusion. John Beard, of Pensacola. found out just how popular antagonism to the League of Nations was at the capital. John , is a fluent speaker, a logical reasoner and weU , known here, where he was raised, but the "announcement that he was to oppoce the League o! Nations was enough to prevent him from having an audience. The house has been rather slow getting started, but when the appro priation and the general revenue and the fish bills are out of the way, just watch that body make a flying run for the goal before' the end of the ses sion.

MOSQUITO CONTROL. During the period of war. the officials of -the army and the United States Public HMth Set? vice, recognizing the value of protectioriagainst j malaria brought into prominence to public the effectiveness and significance of detailed mo squito control or "anti-malarial measure. These organizations conducted the work primarily as a war measure for the protection of soldiers in cantonments and ship builders but simultaneous ly it was also effective in adjacent civil com munities. In addition to the excellent work done by the above federal organizations the interna tional health, board inaugurated and completed a comprehensive and worthy bit of anti-malarial work in one Arkansas county. The small amount of work already done and its ultimate effect upon all communities is arousing great interest' among citizens in Florida, says George W. Simon, Jr., chief sanitary expert, in the Florida Health Notes. ' Wherever mosquito control work has t been done the malaria incidence has fallen rapidly. A 3tudy of statistics will show this point. In Ham burg, Arkansas, for instance, a total of 2,312, malaria calls during 191& was reduced to 260 calls in 1917, subsequent to - mosquito control work. The work done at Hamburg cost $1.45 per capita and resulted irfa 62.25 per cent reduc tion in malaria incidence. This work was ao complished by ditching, draining and oiling. At Sheffield, Alabama, the United States Pub lic Health Service conducted work in vicinity of the nitrate plants which, according to local phy sicians, reduced malaria incidence about 90 per cent. This work cost approximately $1,200 per square mile. ' v The number of mosquito control surveys which have been concluded clearly indicate that the problem presented' by most any community is capable, of a solution. It is quite true that the expense incident to the control work in some com munities would be exorbitant, however, an a ma jority of the cases cost of work would be greatly offset by the resulting comforts, conveniences and freedom from malaria. Mosquito contro work can be handled in sev eral ways. Metz, in a recent publication, classi fies the means of control under three headings : Drainage, Oiling and Accessory Measures. The first of these, drainage, offers the best for years haxe included the income from normal real estate improvements for the entire country, which amounted to about $3,500,000,000 annual ly, and compares this sum with the $300,000,000 estimated for building operations last year. He noints, -put; that the country has for, years depend ed on this annual increase, and the only way; bring it, back to normal quickly is to stimulate building activity now, which in a few years will double and treble the usual' income.- Moreover, he states that in addition to adding $30,000,000, 000 or $40,000,000,000 more than normal to the national wealth, which must be done to stabilize lthe?,bTllipns of bonds issued and: to c be tissued, building activity must be stimulated to the ex tent at least of the various bond issues of the last two years.' , f PRINCIPLES OF LIBERTY. A bit of advice, given a century ago and partic ularly appropriate today, is contained in a. letter owned by John Kerr, pipe fitting, department, Pensacola Shipbuilding Company, Pensacola, Fla. The letter was written by his great grandfather to his grandfather, shortly after the latter settled in America. ....... . The letter says: Brighton, England, Sept. 27, 1818. My Dear Frederick : You now feel what liberty does, you ac-. knowledge that it is the real source of hap piness ; plenty and every virtue spring from it ; without Jt man is degraded. . Sow the principles of it in the minds of your children, teach-them to defend that Government of America, - which has 'opened its bosom to their father, given him bread and even af : fluence, teach them hatred .to' tyrants who - oppress man and who lookupon the indus trious mechanic as their slave. May Provi- dence cause America always to prosper. May her fleets and armies prove victorious over those of suffering Europe. If ever America is attacked always fight her battles, and as you are ah adopted son, show the natural born sons that' you are not inferior to them. - - That man alone is a hero who falls in de fending the liberty of man. r Affectionately yours, JAMES KENNEDY. - Three large Mexican states, Yucatan, Sonora and Chihuahua, have adopted prohibition. : rrr . -. . -. - - i . . . . r : : 1 " ; r. : -r- I Get Out of W X If U An Trv rnlrf Tinttlp nf HI 11 yKt YTiU. givp the snap and zest . t lis II f jOA) you Beec to sove the busi- ' III . n I 'S ness problems reaching your , ill ) v eskdaily' ' ' S f TSS Give our Soldiers and Sailors a I .
