Chairman of the City Board of Health. Opelousas. La., September 1. 1914. The Board of Health met this day with the following members present, viz: Dr. C. F. Boagni, Mr. Charles Ventre and Dr. B. A. Littell. The minutes of the meeting of May 18th, 1914, were read and on motion duly second and carried, were ap proved. The Chairman read the following report and on motion duly seconded and carried the report was received and filed: Oplousas, La., August 20, 1914. To the Members of the Board of Health of Opelousas, La. SGentlemen: I desire to submit this report for ad your considerat'on. Since my incumbency as Health Officer under your Board I have been called upon to investigate a great many cases of suspicious cases of contagious diseases. During the Li- fist. part of the summer a number of te cases of measles occurred in our d- city. The infection in nearly all re of these cases was traced to places outside of our C:ty. Each of these be cases was placarded as soon as I was 'd notified of the case. It is of some s, satisfaction to know that this dis e ease did not spread from one house y to another, but was kept in the t- houses in which it occurred. I)During the first part of the year y there occurred three cases of small s pox at different times-one case be Sing brought here from a turpentine d farm in the western part of the state r- and the other cases, which occurred e about a month after the first one was r. brought from the Eastern part of our 1. Parish. These two last cases were I- in the same house. There was no e spread of this disease from either y of these cases. The expense inci - dent to the handling of the first case was high, as a great deal had to be o expended on the pest house and pest house grounds before the case could e be removed to it the place being in a w very dilapidated condition. The ex 1 penses of the last two cases was very small. I have been called to in-' e vestigate a great many cases which I proved to be not of a contagious na K ture. I make it a rule to investigate f every rumor no matter how vague it 1 may be. of suspicious uases. Our city has been free of Typhoid Fever s'nce February 1913, and then wel had only two very mild cases. The last case of Measles occurred a month ago and since that time we have had no case of contagious or infectious disease in our City. I have kept in close touch with the plague situation in New Orleans and am fully satisfied that there is no need of apprehension of its spread to our City. l Sometime after my election by you as Chairman of the Board of Health I called on the Mayor and informed him of the fact and also told him that you had authorized me to em ploy a sanitary inspector. The May or told me the Board of Aldermen had already elected an inspector. I stated to the Mayor that the Board of Aldermen had no authority to elect the ganitary inspector, that that was a duty imposed by law on the Board of Health, but that I had no objection to using, or appointing Mr. Meginley whom they had elect ed day officer and sanitary inspec spector, provided that I could have Mr. Meginley's whole time and pro vided that he did the work satisfac tory to the Board of Health and my self. The Mayor told me that Mr. Meginley could do the work of the Board of Health when he was not busy with, the Police work, that the police work would have to come ftrst. I told him that this would not be sat'sfactory to the Board of Health or myself. that we would require he full time of an officer. The ' Mayor then told me that I would have to ap point an inspector. I then appointed Mr. A. L. Hollier and agreed to pay t him $2.00 a day for every day he wo' ked. Mr. Hollier's bill for his first month's work was approved by me and presented to the Board of Al dermen for payment. The Board of Aldermen failed to pay this account but the second month another bill approved cy me was, togeth r with the first b l., paid ly the ,:card vi Aldermen and I was no, le.l ,,y anl Mayo that the a;oard or Aldermen would not lay any mole b lls for an insp ctor. or. espondence on Lhs matter between the Mayor and. l ,y self is herewith attached to this re port. I invite your consideraton of the amn.. M!r. Hollier has been very diligent and painstak ng w th th s ,ork and ihas p oven entirely satis fact~ry. I herewith subm t a repor: from him r .iative to pa t of th done by him. 1 have made a thorough insp ctiot of the streets, gutters, gu.lies, the dumping grounds and other places .n cur c ty and find much to be done by the city towards a sanitary imt prov ment. At the .egular meeting of the Board of Aldermen in July, ? appeared before that body and call ed their attention to the insanitary conditions existing in the gulli. s streets and other places n our City and urged them to take steps to abate these nuisances. A motion by Mr. Easthem prevailed authorizing the Mayor to bor ow Two Hundred Dollars with which to clean out the gullies. Again at the regular m et ing of the Board of Aldermen in August I appeared before them, an"! again urged them to take imm.diate steps to abate these nuisances, as noth ng had been done, and nothing has been dlone by the City up to this time. I have frequent complaints made to me by citizens about the conditions of the gtllies and gutters, and residtnts have protested against being compelled to clean up their premises and p' operties when the gull es and gutt'rs are in the con dition that they are, I submit for your consideration or dinances relating to cleaning up anti keeping properties in a sanitary con dition, relative to stablcs, relat ve to the establishment and maintaining of dairies within the corpo'ate limits of our City, and an ordinance regu lating the sale of milk and its pro ducts. I ask for the enactment of these ordinances. I have spent a great deal of time and care in writ ing these ordinances, especially the milk ordinance. The milk ordinance may appear drastic upon first read ing, but I do not think we can be too exact'ng in our regulations concern ing the handling and sale of this im portant article of diet. I am working on a good many ordinance which I shall present for your consideration at a subsequent meeting of your Board. I would suggest that our Board have regular stated meetings every month or every two months. I wish to state that the people are as a rule much more will ng to and much more readily observe the sanitary regulations and orders than ever before. I say, without any de sire to boast or to exaggerate that our City is in as healthy condition as any city of its size in the South. The preceding Board of Health, of which most of you were members, had for its main object the estab lishment of a sewerage system for our City and they accomplished this object. Our present Board can ac complish equally as much and more for our City by the enactment and ex ecution of proper ord'nances relat ing to the improvement of its sani tary condition. B. A. LITTELL, M. D., Chairman of the City Board of Health Moved by Dr. Boagni that the r Chairman be instructed to again call upon the Mayor and Board of Alder h men and that he again urge upon e them the necessity of immediately a cleaning out the gullies and gutters s and abating the other nuisances ex e isting in our city. Motion seconded f by Mr. Ventre and carried. r Inspector Hollier submitted the II following report, which on motion s duly seconded and carried, was ac e cepted and ordered filed: s Opelousas, August 17, 1914. e City Board of Health: I- Gentlemen: -I haie inspected the e city, throughout, have gone to every e house in the City limits with a few exceptions. I found the City in ve! y r bad condition in some parts, but the people have obeyed instructions and cleaned up well. Have served no tices on the three Railroads running through the City, the Southern Pa cific, the O. G. & N. E., and the Fris co cut weeds and briars and to r clean out all ditches and drains on their road. The Frisco has obeyed instructions and ale cutting weeds r and briars and cleaning drains and ditches on both sides of the road. The S. P. and O. G. have not done any cleaning of drains or ditches yet. On Aug. 15 I inspected the Railroads I and found only the Frisco at work, cleaning up. I find the gullies run ning through the city in bad condi tion. The Mayers and Rawls gullies and Bayou Lessin are all thru over grown with weeds and glass. The people living near the gullies com plain that they are made to cut weeds and clean up while the town does not cut its weeds. I have tried to make them understand that the t Board of Health is working to this point. Now after examining the gul lies I think they should be cleaned out, but if we cannot have them cleaned through it could be done say, Lessin from Jefferson St. to O. G. track. Rawls gulley from Grolee St. to South St. and Mayers gulley from North St. to Landry St. I am now on my second round of inspec tion. Find the weeds have been cuti but have grown high again. Some of the people say they have cut weeds once and will not cut again. I flnd some few cisterns that have not been screened. Now, gentlemen I have given this work my close attention and hope it will meet with the satisfaction of the City Board of Health. I made notices in duplicate of each place I: inspected, have made a full report of my work and turned it over to the president of the Board of Health. Dr. B. A. Littell. Respectfully your, A. L.

An ordinance to provide for and A EO NO. Admiral deRfuyter-- Greatest of Holland's Sea Captains IKE our own Paul Jones, de Ruyter knew no such word as surrender. His life from boyhood up was one constant battle against the enemies of his country. He defeated the proud English navy in two wars. One of his sea battles with the English fleet lasted four solid days, and ended with the advantage resting with de Ruyter. Later he fought several great naval duels against the combined English and French fleets, and while his victories were not decisive, he won for Holland undying glory. The great de Ruyter abhorred tyranny of every kind, just as do the Hollanders of to-day. When prohibitory enactments are proposed to those of the blood of Holland they vote to a man against it.They are wherever found unalterably opposed to any legis lation which would make the many suffer for the faults of a few. Hollanders know that there is nro evil in the barley brews and light wines of their fathers-EVIL ONLY IS IN THE MAN WHO MISUSES THEM. In America we have thousands of these splendid people, and Personal Liberty always obtains where they reside. For 57 years Anheuser-Busch have enjoyed the trade of those of Holland blood because every day of these 5 years has been devoted to the honest brewing of Barley-Malt and Hop brews. It is not to be wondered that 7,500 people are daily required to keep pace with the natural demand for Budweiser. Its sales exceed those of any other beer by millions of bottles ANI-USER-BUSCH-ST.LOUIS,US.A. Bottled only at the home plant.
