A good rain would be appre ciated by the farmers of this community. We are about to organize a ball team, and among others whom we Intend to beat is Newport. Two days seems to be the ^ limit for vacations this summer, as L. H. Shannon and R. L. Gilliam returned the following day after they left. Mrs. John T. Brady returned Tuesday from a trip to Missouri where she was called to the bed side of her daughter, and reached it just as death took her away. She leaves two children, aged 5 and 2 years. The protracted meeting is pro gressing nicely, but with little effect. We regret to see that Rev. Frank Turner was called home Tuesday, but we hope this will not be our last opportunity to have him with us. We are expecting a nice time at the barbecue to be given by the Farmers’ Union Thursday. Everybody is invited. l-v i 1_ ~ J. ivl. JJ1 UIIJIIIUIIU nao chased a new buggy. What next? License, perhaps. Some of the boys seem to be behind with their talking, and no time to catch up except at church. You should be careful, „ boys. It is said that talk is cheap, but it costs money some times. Mr. Jess Hammett and Mrs. Robertson were married at the home of the bride last Wednes day. We wish them much hap piness. John Lindsey and family are spending a few days in. the hills at present. Yes, Midnight, I am still jam ming wind, as I feel I am not so fortunate as my worthy critic that it comes at my command. Look for me in the future if I live over the barbecue. Yours only.

Council Calls Upon City Attorney For Official Opinion Upon Power of Board of Health to Collect Fees For Services. The collection of fees for the issuance of health certificates, is disturbing a number of cities. Whether there should be a fee, if so, what size, and where it shall go, are the points of issue. The Newport Board of Health, after a discussion of these ques tions, referred the matter to the city council which met Wednes day afternoon, and called upon City Attorney S. M. Stuckey for his official opinion on the ques tion, which is published below. In many cities, doctors, who are not health officers, have is sued these certificates, but they have not been recognized by most cities or boards. In Jones boro this was done, a fee of 2oc being charged. In Little Rock, the city board has been charging a dollar, which goes into the general city ex pense fund, and this helps to pay for sanitation and quaran tine. On the other hand the state board receives the certifi cate money as pay for their ser vices, and the Pulaski county lioc -5-pt- /•lotprminpf] whether the fees shall become their own or appropriated for sanitary purposes. City Attorney’s Opinion. To the City Council, City of New port, Newport, Ark.: Gentlemen—The com munication to you from the Board of Health from the City of Newport, and which you handed to me for my advice on, will say : That, after having examined the statute (5525 Kirby’s Dig.) under which the Board of Health of this city is organized, I am of the opinion that the council could delegate, and by Ordinance No. 58 did delegate, to the Board of Health the right to make rules and regulations for its government; but that the council alone could by ordinance provide the way in which the board could be compensated for its services. The functions of the board are not legislative, and it could enact no rule or regula tion providing a fee for its ser vices. The ordinance provides that the expenses of the Board of Health shall be paid by the citv, upon proper certificate by the president of the board. The members of the board could not properly charge a lee |;or a cer tificate of health, because noth ing in the statute authorizing the organization of the board or the ordinance under which it is cre ated provides for such a fee. It is clearly, if the council see fit, its duty to provide a fee for such service, and also to provide to whom it shall go. And the council having provided in the ordinance under which the board acts no fee for this service, none could be legally charged. The council could by amend ment to the ordinance provide a fee for issuing a certificate of health, and also to whom this fee should go. But in the absence of such pro vision, the members of the Board of Health could charge no fees ; because fees can only be charged when they are authorized by statute, or in the case of city, by ordinance. Yours respectfully, S. M. Stuckey, City Att’y. Good housekeepers use the best. That’s why they buy Red Cross Ball Blue. At leading grocers 5 cents. YELLOW FEVER There Is No Occasion For Alarm Remember The Lessor.:'. i I be Epidemic of luQo. As we are now threatened with another visitation • the dreaded yellow fever it is wYl to remem ber the experiences »f the Hast occasion. In all section' where yellow fever made its appear ance it will be recalled that per sons who kept their stomach, liver and bowels strong and active were not affected by the disease; while others apparently healthy were stricken down. These latter were all more or less habitually constipated, bilious or victims of bad digestion; as a re sult the blood became impure and the vital organs were unable to resist the deadly fever germs. Now is the time to prepare for what is to follow. Get your fam ily and yourself in shape to re sist the disease. You don't know when you are exposed to it; every man you meet may be affected, and if you put your preparations off from day to day you may be too late. The sensi ble course is to begin at once taking Prickly Ash Bitters, that marvelous system regulator and blood purifier. Use it regularly every day. Half a wine-glassful each morning after breakfast will keep your bowels open and healthy; it will also strengthen the stomach and digestion, purify the blood and by stimulating the liver and kidneys all bile and uric acid impurities will be driven out of the body. In short, it puts the system in perfect j order. Remember 1898. That was a record year for Prickly Ash Bitters. In the sections where it was used the most there were fewest cases of fever. You connot do better in this hour of danger than to make use of the means which experience has proven to be the best for fight ing off this terrible scourge. 78 OR. CHAS. E.
