counts for much more than its
initial cost That is proven by the
fact that when you buy lumber
here, you won't have to buy more
for a long time to come. Sound
and thoroughly seasoned as , it is,
once it is put up it is there to stay
without the need of repair or re
placement ,

County Roads.
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. '

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. D.,
Director in Charge.
