If we want to we can eliminate u
greater part o£ the mosquito evil by
a voluntary effort. We can destroy
all their breeding places about our
piaces and the city can keep the drains
and ditches open and see that no stag
nant pools are allowed. If it is neces
sary to cut the weeds, why we guess
we could do that on a pinch. The only
thing is to get to wanting a mosquito
less town strong enough. Most things
are poss''ble when the will is there.
Suppose we get to thinking about this
thing seriously, and not merely as a
subject only important enough to take
up space in this column.
Nearly everybody is finding some
thing to do while waiting on the wea
ther to get right.
If thd weather lias not been suitable
for the cleanup to your satisfaction,
why just keep on the jcb until you can
: pprove it. We are forced to admit
Ciat. owing to the general dampness
(lie burning part of the program could
not bo successfully carried out. We
can't afford to let this thing go default
just on account of the uncertainty of
EASTER EGG HUNT
Winthrop, April 5.— (Special.)—Mes-I
dames J. P. Lazarus and Chas. Johns- J
ton and fifteen young people Sunday'
were entertained by Mr. and Mrs.
Marion Adams with an Easter egg
hunt in the pasture near the creek.
Mr. Adams gave an interesting talk on j
Easter, why we celebrated and what'
it meant to us all. The finding of the '
eggs was some fun as there was a j
prize of two golden eggs laid^ by the
goose of Mother Gooses' fame, to be *
given to a boy and girl finding the1
most eggs. Adelbert Ingram and Ber- •
nice Allison were the winners. After
l.'.e hunt !a<Les served a splendid din
ner on the grass out in the sunshine.1
which was enjoyed by all present, j
They then returned to the house where 1
they spent the remaining part o£ the'
day in singing. Those too small to i
sing played games. The children vot- !
ed many thanks to Mr. and Airs. Adams
for such a pleasant Easter.
