In an Indiana city the want columns ot tile daily papers were used to ad Y.utiso for discharged soldiers seeking cuiploynienl.

In Louisville. Ky., the want columns of daily papers were also usd vertisc for soldiers seeking employ nient. In this ease, the soldiers were i C« piirod to appear in uniform. \Y. II.

My nerves wore in a bad shape; 1 was badly constipated, and even now I bate to think of the ter rible headaches 1 had.

PARKER The proprietor of a public eating | place who will not observe reasonable health rules and regulations is a dan gerous person in any community and will not be patronized by any person who is at nil mindful of his health. Every dirty caterer should be made to get right in the matter of sanitation or he forced out of the business through which he seriously endangers (the health and lives of his unwary patrons. Idaho's delightful and healthful cli mate .should appeal strongly to pros pective settlers who are leaving the less inviting east and wending their way westward. Nothing better under the Min than Ibis splendid intermoun tain region where health and happiness and prosperity abound and it is good to live. Unquestionably it is the patriotic duty of every loyal American to Keep well and fit for life's great battle. Our country needs every bit of assistance from every individual. \Ve must pro duce far more food than ever before to feed our own soldiers overseas as well as those of the allied nations. And we must eliminate waste and ineffi ciency. More lumber with which to build ships and carry on reconstruc tion work must be. forthcoming. Cotton and wool for the great needs of the world must bo made available at the earliest possible date. The mines and mineral industries must bo kept well up to tho maximum of inoduction. In order to accomplish this and even more that may be necessary the prev alence of disease must bo kept at the minimum. Sickness from preventable diseases means loss of time and money and decreased efficiency and will greatly impede this country in its re construction work. Therefore, if be comes the duty of every individual to take special pains to safeguard his health and the health of his country. It i'j just about time for the fly, one of the greatest enemies of the human rare, to make his appearance in Boise. Consequently, tho plain, simple tion arises, wlmt are we going to do about it? Are we going to permit that dangerous pest to repeat his deadly attacks on the people of this commun ity this season 'îi Now is the time to proceed to make this city less inviting than ever before and what applies to Boise applies to every city and town in this state. It may be said that tho prevention ai d the. cure of any harmful condition consists logically in eliminating th« cause. But in order to do this it is necessary, first, to ascertain the causé and find out nil wo can about its method of operation. For this reason timo and money and effort spent in investigating tin* causes of disease are certainly well spent, and they offer n% great a yield on the principal invest'd as any other form of investment that can be mentioned. Tho tiuth of this M: t* ment, is v. \ well Illustrated in the fact that practically all the leading insurance coni panics, no doubt having business reasons for desiring tho re duction of disease, very properly ex pend large sums of money on research work. Every community in this state should proceed without delay in the matter of a general clean up, for this is the time of the year for extra ef forts to he made along this line. If we want the health conditions of Idaho to be increasingly good this season, we must get busy and not stop until they are materially changed. Tho health of tho people of this state should be held above every other consideration and we can have right conditions only by working along right lines, bet's make Idaho «»nr the cleenegt ;«nd most healthful states in the west. j ANSWERED BY ALEXANDER Q.
