The work this year is going to require lots of money, much more than the fund now has, if every poor child in the city is to be provided with Dolls and Toys. The six days left will undoubt edly bring in more contributions than any six day's gone bye, for the last days alw'ays are the best for fund. The fund now has passed the hundred dollar mark. When returns are made on the benefit given at the Evangeline last night, the fund will again shoot skyward. Are you going to do your part toward making the fund two hundred dollars when it closes a week from tonight. This is not your neighbors business, its for you, what are you going to do about it? All funds contributed to The Re view Doll and Toy Fund will be dis bursed by The King's Daughters of j this city. The Peoples State and Sav ings Bank is the place of deposit for the Fund but contributions will be accepted by the banks of Morgan City and by a number of the busi ness men.

A SPOTLESS AND HEALTHFUL TOWN There ought to be a big boom in Framingham for two reasons. One that it is to be a really truly civic center of cleanliness; the other that it is to be made absolutely tubercu losis-free. For some time the Nat ional Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis has been contemplating the selection of a city where it can demonstrate the suc cessful extermination of consump tion, the Great White Plague. After deliberations it has selected Farm ingham, Massachusetts, out of sever al hundred towns considered. About $100,000 will be expended. In ad dition to this, the City has agreed to improve the health work. As a part of a plan, it is* proposed to place un der definite control every case of tuberculosis. Farmingham will be able to boost and boast. The Louis iana Anti-Tuberculosis Campaign is endeavoring to stamp out consump tion and relegate the disease to the same oblivion which now envelops yellow fever, holera, the bubonic plague and other controllable dis Deep-seated coughs that resist or dinary remedies require .both exter nal and internal treatment.
