To road commissioners, contractors, magistrates and land owne -s. The Supreme Court has decided that the road law means exact' what it says in every section; that being true, some one had better get busy. Gwule the roads 11 inches to the foot from ditch to center of road, keep Hitches cleaned out so as to properly ds aia the road, and keep bridges repaired. ' Several contractors were indicted last year and their cases were continued to hear from the Supreme Court, and at this term they all submitted and paid. I have been going over the county and find the bridges are in bad shape, the ditches grown up in weeds, bridges un derneath full of weeds, brush, etc., which prevents the flow of water and washes away the bridges. Below I give you what money is on hand to finish your contracts'less the commutation which may be paid by the hands. None has been paid in as yet and Commissioners ought to get busy right now and collect and turn in at once. Land owners if you clean out fence corners don't throw in ditches on road because that is obstructing the public highway and subject to indict ment. So let all track the law and not be forced to the courts. ' District Amount 1 .....$1,385.12 ,2.,...i 527.33 3.... 322.48 4..

Kenney, County Judgij. o:o;o:o:a::a :o:o o::::::a::a:: Hookworm. ! A representative of the State Board of Health is now making a survey of Obion County to determine the amount of hookworm infection in the county. Some cases have been reported from the county and no doubt there is a con siderable infection in the county. This work is being done by the State Board of Health but is financed by Jno. D. Rockefeller, so it will not cost the people of the county one cent to have the examination made, and later when the dispensaries are established those who have the infection can get treat ment free of charge. Every county in the State has hook worm iufection. Some are more heav ily infected than others. There has not been enougn work done in Obion County to determine how much infection is here. You can assist a great deal in finding out how much hookworm there is in the county by having your chil dren examined. There is more infec tion in children than in grown people, because children go barefoot, and this is the way the worms are gotten. Any thing that favors soil polution favors the spread of the infection. The worms live in the bowel and lay their eggs there. These eggs never hatch in the bowel but hatch in the soil. Then when a barefoot boy or girl walks in the dirt contaminated with young worms these worms crawl through the skin, get into the blood and circulate with the blood to the lungs, then crawl through the wall of the little air cell and get into the air in the lungs, then they are coughed up and swallowed. The worms are about half an inch long when grown. They suck blood from the lining of the bowel and inject a poison into the blood. This causes paleness, loss of energy, stunts the growth, retards the mental development and makes the person more susceptible to all other diseases. - Very truly, V. P. Robinson, M.
