, CUT WEEDS AND HAY FEVER
Il yo would help suffering humanity, you will cut the weeds and grass
S e and on your premises. The pollen from these weeds and grass
e eause' of Hay Fever, and it has been estimated by conservative med
0s, who are in a position to know, that there are in New Orleans about
thousand cases of well developed hay fever, and each one of these
has before them about three or four months of suffering which could
estirely be relieved by the residents of our town and city living
up to the laws regarding the cutting of weeds in front of their prem
mad vacant lots. Last year, through the efforts of Mayor Behrman, a
ble number of extra men were placed on the city's street gang to
pgt rid of the weeds, but. the cutting of only a part of the weeds and
the others stand is almost the same as not cutting any at all, except
there has been added cost of labor and material for cutting only a part,
will not bring about a proper result.
We are pleased to note that there is a bill at present pending before the
rtuv' giving municipalities the right to cut the grass upon private
and charging the same to the property holders' tax bill, if he should
t obey the order to cut grass or weeds within a certain specified time.
i. really the only remedy. Last year in Algiers it was a common
to see eight or ten residents along a square obey the law strictly by
;A - all1 the grass and weeds from in front of their premises, when one or
i the block ignored the law entirely. This new law, however, will
-' gae all these objections and when a property holder fails to cut the
is front of his premises, the city, after four or five days' notice, will
.. bhe weeds for him. The amount will be charged against the property
, and it not paid within a specified time, it will be charged against
d y or state taxes.
hse sufferers from this provoking, lingering malady will be frever
to the lawmakers and our city officials who will help put this new
into effect to such an extent that actual relief will be given to
hay fever patients.
De not wait until you are notified to cut your grass and weeds. This
gbty that you owe to your brother who is subject to this dreadful dis
~ sad when you fail to cut down your weeds, remember, you are con
to his misery. You should also remember that keeping your
clean also adds beauty to your residence and the district in which
I~ 'e It is also a matter of pride that you should take this under con.
:1 your weeds today. Tell your neighbor to do so. If you see any
l the vicinity of your residence, who has perhaps forgotten, ask them
- their weeds. Tell them about the new law and also tell them the
bum these weeds and grass is the cause of hay fever.

that appeals to everybody in his

with great earnestness, and his voice
vibrated from the deep sense of duty
and sacrifice that will be demanded
