The most disastrous day for
the Rosemary team sinee the be
ginning of the league. Several
factors contributed to the piling
up of the ten rims against lloi'.e

team, also made a better show
against Welsh than they ever
did before-Hughes for the Rap

times at bat.

with three up and three down.

singles, Hughes and Kdnioiid
sons, scored him and Mac John

Edmondson. Rosemary didn't
get to first.
In the third inning Roanoke

Everyone who ha; nut vol
received the antitoxin I real meat
for typhoid is urged to do so at
once, not only for his own good
but for the good of others. This
treatment, is simple, painless,
absolutely safe and statistics
prove that, it, is almost a perfect,
preventative of typhoid.
Dr. T. W. M. Long: states that,
last year he administered the
antitoxin t real moid, to 721! people
and not one of the per ons re
reiving the treatment afterward
developed typhoid. Estimating
the population of Roanoke Rap
ids to be 2500 people, t hat would
leave about lSllll people unlront -ed.
Of these people, tvvenlv

So far this year no cases of
typhoid have developed in t he ,
w hole community. This is won
derful, considering the record
of previous years and it can be
ilue to nothing else but tic im
proved sanitary coinlil ions of I he

The antitoxin lasts two years,
so if you received the treatment
last year, you do not need it
now. Typhoid fever is can e.l
by a specific germ. That germ
lives in water, milk ami organic
mailer of all kinds. Il i con
voyed by the ordinary hou.,e or
stable lly also through the u al
er and milk supply. These are
practically the only three ways
by which it can be contracted.
The disease is easily prevented.
