STAIJKVILLE, MISSISSIPPI, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12. 1013. It don’t seem that such a propo sition needs much consideration assuring that the laud is worth anything. What the Red Cross Seal Fund has Accomplished. 1. It has established a system by which every tubercular patient in the state is being, or will even tually be instructed bv personal correspondence, and by literature how to care lor himself, and how to protect his relatives and the public. 2 It has paid for and distribut ed nearly 100,000 pieces of litera. ture stating facts concerning tuberculosis. 3 It is putting in every public building in the state, the anti spit regulations of the State Board of Health, 4 It has compiled facts and figures as to the number of deaths from tuberculosis by coun ties and is putting these before the people. 5. It has enlisted the interest ot the legislators of the state in the establishment of a tuberculo sis hospital or camps. Many letters from Senators and repre sentatives make it certain that such a bill will be introduced in the next legislature. 6 It has helped to better the milk supply of the state by in- sisting on the tuberculin test for their cattle. More than 1200 have been examined during the past year. 7. By reenforcing the State Board of Health’s rules and reg ulations, it has brought about cleaner markets, dairies and fruit stands; and has slopped the sweeping of passenger coaches in the state. 8. It has inaugurated a sys tern by which doctors will have to comply with the code law rel ative to reporting tubercular pa tients. When these are reported they ere communicated with at once. 9. The fund has aiso paid for a part of Doctor W. H. Rowan’s time in order that he might pay special attention to tubercular conditions and deliver lectures on tuberculosis along with his work as Chief Sanitary Inspec tor. The State Board of Health did not have sufficient funds for this purpose. An analysis for the above facts will show that the Christmas Seal Fund has inaugurated the greatest health movement ever undertaken in this state, namely: The Elimination of Tuberculosis.

Longview. Longview it seems is destined to become a most important town in several ways, two that we will particularly mention; education ally and commercially. Twenty tive houses could be rented now it they were erected for occu pancy for families who wish to locate there for the benefit of the agricultural high school. The sale of lots and small farms that will take place there on the 22nd will attract people far and near. It will be just two years ago since there was a sale of lots and many improvements have been made during that time. Some pur chasers sold their lots and made nice profits, Undoubtedly prop erty is cheaper there now than it will ever be again and the man that is looking for a home where he can educate his children, no better location presents itself to favorable consideration than tne town of Longview. Longview now has a bank and it is pretty certain that several brick buildings will be erected early in the new year. It will pay any one to attend the sale, for the parties who own the property that will be offered are going to clean out their interests, the sale will take place rain or shine. ■ ■ m• m for the news.
