To the Cittlten* ol Iliy, St.me Osp The authorities are undertak? ing a campaign in the interest of a cleaner town. We are es? pecially anxious to secure the co operation of all good citizens to the end that our olTorts may bring the best possible results, making Pig Stone flap, not only more tidy and more health? ful, but a town of beauty that will be in every way pleasing to the eye. When we accom? plish this much, wo will have placid Itig Stone Gap upon a sanitary plan above criticism All Ibis can be accomplished without the necessity of invoic? ing town ordinances ami com? pulsory measures civic pride properly awakened will bring about tlie desired end. Willi proper CO-Operation between the town authorities and the citizens Hig Stone Hap can, within a few days, he made one of the cleanest and mosl invit? ing towns in the South. I >ne particular menace to the health at this season is the un? sightly woods that are allowed to llourish on vacant lots, in the rear of homes and along the alleyways. These weeds arc a constant menace to health, and the longer they are allow, ed to stand the more threaten-1 ing the danger becomes. The poisonous miasma thrown off by slowly dying vegetation breeds fevers ami threaten the good health of every Individual. The weeds should be cut down before they seed; this w ill not only kill the seed, reducing the prospect for the objectionable crop another year, but when cut they will dry up within a few hours. If left lo die on the stem, the weeds decay gradual? ly, throwing off poisons that are carried on the atmosphere into every home. The town authorities are anxious that every property owner and every resident, for that matter, shall take the initiative in this mat ter w ithout inviting the town authorities to invoke compul j BOry measures. Evory citizen I owes it to himself and to the health of the community to eo operate in this movement. Ill will be a matter of very small cost to each family to doits pari in cleaning up and there is not a citizen who will not feel ! amply repaid for his efforts when once he comes to realize what such a spirit of CO opera? tion has accomplished. in other towns this spirit of co? operation has been secured,! conditions have been made en ? tirely inviting, and instead of! proving a hardship, it has been a blessing, the full benefits Of winch can baldly be measured. It is the purpose of the author ities to assist in every way pos Bible tu bring about perfect san? itary conditions. So let the head of each family resolve at once that bis premises shall be put in proper condition. S. p. Plkknor, Mayor Commerce and Guns. The press and commercial as? sociations of the United states are making much ado over the opportunity afforded for un ex? pansion of the commerce of the United States because of the business paralysis of Kuropo. Whole pages of the metropoli? tan dailies are tilled with the wonderful opportunities ahead of us us a nation. The ascendency of the United Status to a world predominat? ing power is hailed from all sides as an accomplished fact. We are pictured by the opti? mists as a nation at peace With the world and with not a ripple in the BkieSi The possibilities are indeed great?provided we approach them with some degree of wis? dom. \Ve must not expect foreign governments to quietly submit lo our absorption of their com inerce. They will unquestion? ably seek means for regaining that which they have lost and we have gained, possibly evan to the extent of involving us in war in an endeavor to cripple us. And there lies our menace, Wo are not in position to face such a war. Wo have neither lhe gun8 nor the ammunition for equipping a large ui my such as would be required for repel? ling an invasion by a lust-class (tower. (foreign governments can place millions of troops in the Held, but we can arm and equip only a few hundred thousands Is it reasonable to suppose that these governments would submit to the loss of their com? merce without striking back: If we are to build up a liter-, chant marine we must have the means of protecting it o n e it is afloat. We do not need a large stand? ing army, but wo do need guns and ammunition for use in emergency, for without those we would be helpless. UongreBS should supply arms and equipment sufficient for at least a million men. for with a less number than this we would have no assurance whatever of safety. Our traue expansion might even prove the boomerang that WOUld eventually pluugOjUS ill to a long ami costly war. WISE COUNTY FAIR.
