Idaho occupies an enviable position
among the states of the Union in the
matter of health. It has an ideal cli
mate and a healthy, sturdy citizenship,
and efficiency is one of its greatest
assets. Who could fail to love fair,
sunny Idaho?
Of all earth's living creatures, the
fly takes the greatest toll in human
lives, and it Is the duty of every citi

A man said to me today that he
feared his wife had tuberculosis, and
that he really did not know what ■ to
do in the matter, as he did not have
money enough to send her to a sani
tarium outside of tills state. The wom
an in question was attacked by this
disease some few years ago but was
cured. Now, it seems, she has It
again, no doubt not far advanced, and,
If so, she could unquestionably be
cured by proper cure and the right kind
of treatment. Unfortunately, Idaho has
no Institution equipped and prepared
to handle cases of this character, which
is keenly regretted by those who are
fighting the white plague in this state.
But at the last session of the legisla
ture provision was made for two tuber
culosis hospitals, to be erected in 1920,
and the state will then be ablo to
properly care for its tuberculous citi
zens. Through tile institutions to be
constr/cted many lives will be saved,
and tho non-tuberculous population
will be protected from tills terrible
scourge. The man being unable to
place ills wife in a sanitarium, she
will be obliged to do the best she can
under the circumstances. In Idaho,
there are thousands of cases like this
one, and certainly the legislature took
an advanced step in providing for two
Institutions for the state's ivictlms of
the white plague, and the only regret
is that they were not provided for
Do not let the typhoid fly even get
started in business in your community
this season. If you do, lie may get

That much tuberculosis will result
from the recent influenza epidemic
tile general consensus of opinion
among members of the medical profes
sion and in view of this feeling all
those who had Influenza should en
deavor to build up their systems and
, t a ge every possible precaution ijgalnst
the white plague. Boise and Idaho had
many cases of Influenza with not n
few cases of pneumonia, and those
who were victims of these diseases
should take warning.
Tho proprietor of a public eating
place who serves "come backs" or re
hashed food to subsequent patrons Is
criminal and should not be tolerated
In any community. His place of busi

health and he should be forced to dis
continue his repulsive practice.
Consumption, like diphtheria, scarlet
fever, measles and smallpox, Is con
tagious, and to keep this disease from

right way, wilt kill these germs.

Objects to Proposed Paving

Evans of Salt Lake, connected with the
Oregon Short Line railroad, was re

Line approximately $6905. The protest
was based on the grounds that the
general financial condition of the coun

make the tax burdensome, and the
Short Line requests a hearing on tho
matter at a future date. The council
decided to go ahead with the plans for

Councilman Herrington Makes Statement
in Reply to Columbia Park Question
Editor Capital New*: In rsply to
the letter of the Boise Hotel company
to the Rotary club, which was pub
lished In Tuesday's Capital News, they
certainly flatter ms by attributing the
whole matter of Columbia park to me
as if I was the whole council; but 1
am always willing to declare myself
so that the people who pay my salary
ma$ know where I stand.
The city did pay through the Ro
tary club the 1500 rental from last
June, 1918, to June, 1919 this year, and
all citizens have to pay taxes on their
property even if It Is Idle.
I have never opposed the mainten
ance of Columbia park. 1 have always
opposed paying rent for property
which Is held for speculation purposes.
I dare say there Is not another piece
of property In the city but what the
owner would be glad to hgve beauti
fied at the city's expense while It is
idle, and If elected as mayor I guaran
tee that Columbia park shall not get

ago in June.
