Thanks to sanitation, the United" States is not only the rich

So we say "Good-by" and "Howdy do" with a feeling that
plumbing will bring even greater changes during the year 1923.
Thanks to our customers, and thanks to alt who are helping
to make oiir community abetter place in which to live.
Church Board meets on New Years
S now we're busy saying "Good-by" to an old year and
"Howdy do" to anew one. It is the time of change,,and
change is the only thing that stays with us.
Change has given us better food, better clothing, better
homes, better ways of living.
Among all the changes none is greater than the change in
sanitation, which is only a larger word for plumbing.
Better sanitation, or plumbing, if you please, has changed the
death rate that follows tuberculosis. Sanitation has cut the
yearly number of cases of typhoid fever for every one hundred
thousand peoble rrom twenty-two to seven. Sanitation has
brought health, strength and happiness to all ourmillions.
