BOARD OF HEALTH NOTES. Health Officer Heard on Gives Advice as to Cleaning Up. Right now is $he. time to get in the habit of putting a trash box or barrel right by the back steps or kitchen door and throwing your empty cans and other waste matter into the box or barrel. Don't throw your cans in the yard and then have to go out and pick them all up again, put them into the trash receptacle direct from the house, then put out the trash box or barrel a least three times a week before ten o'clock in the morning. Keep up this rule of having your trash box handy right at the back door and see how little trouble it will be to keep your back yard clean and sanitary- And see how much la? bor will be saved by avoiding the necessity of picking up tin cans and other refuse, which you ordinarly throw out in the yard, awaiting the opportunity to pick up again when there is no use and little sense in ever throwing In the yard. Get busy before mosquito breed? ing time filling up any low places, draining any places that hold water, If you cannot conveniently fill them up, examine the coverings of your cess-pools to see that there are no small cracks or holes that mosqultos or files may enter. Get In the habit of pouring kero? sene oil through your pipes at least once every ten days so that the oil will get Into the cesspools and de? stroy any mosqultos that may be hatched In the cesspool. Clean out your house gutters now. By examining the gutters you will surely find them clogged up with leaves. You will also nine out of ten times find that they are sagging and holding some water for days after every rain. Remember that a gill of rain water remaining In the gutter for five days means mosquito breed? ing therein. If you have any ditches or other drains on your premises have them cleaned often and keep a little kero? sene oil in the drains. No matter whether there Is any water in the ditches or drains, or no water. Pour in the oil. When It rains the oil will show Itself all right. Managers of manufacturing plants, ware houses, depots and platforms and at all places where barrels of water are kept for fire protection, should keep kerosene oil In the wa? ter constantly until mosquito time is over. Keep disinfectants in your cess? pools, and ashes or dry earth, or lime In your surface closets. Best of all connect your house or business establishment with the sew? erage system. Cesspools must go In time, and the time Is much uhorter than you Imagine It to be. A sweeping regulation abolishing every cess pool in Sumter may be put into effct within a short time. There is no use in standing back to "take the limit" on connecting your house, or business placf with the sewerage system. If you are not connected and the antl-cesspo d law Is suddenly launched you will be de? prived of the use of your bnth tub, toilets, wash basins, kitchen sinks, until you do connect them with the public aewers. Procrastination is the thief of time. And it may rob you of the convenlenees of your plumbing and fixtures at any tlmie unless y:>u are prepared for the lightnirg like changes In sanitary plumbing sew? erage system laws likely to be put on the b'lls In a short time, or fram time to time. Sumter spent $125,400.00 at one clip, and many thousand s nee to get the water works plant In order that Sumter might build seventeen miles of public sewers costing $93, 600.00 and these two public utilities Armour's Fertilizers Have four sources of ammonia. They feed your crop through the entire grow? ing season. They will be sold at every shipping point in this county. Next week we will tell you in this paper why they are the best goods to be had. Armour Fertilizer Works ATLANTA, GEORGIA costing $218,000.00 were put in and purchased to get rid of hundreds of cesspoools, and to enable many thousand people to have modern san? itary conveniences, to get r'd of mo? squltos, typhoid fever, malarial fever, diphtheria, and other diseases. That $218,000 is thrown away if Sumter Is to indefinitely postpone the abolition of her primitive and uji sanltary cesspools and surface clos? ets. That $218,000.00 worth of public utilities must be used in order to make it count. Increased health, less sickness, and death, less mo? squitoes, better and purer air, and other advantages to be derived by using the public system of sewers are the things we spent $218,000.00 for. Thie olden time "spring cleaning" Is a thing of the past. Clean up ev? ery day. Better still adopt the trash box at the back door, and avoid having to clean up your yard so of? ten, "The Old 'Oaken Bucket That Hung in the Well," "The Picture that Was Turned to the Wall," 'The Little Old Woman Who Lived In a Shoe" and "The Women do the Work and the Men do the Hanging Around" are beautiful and somewhat true songs. But, Oh! for the artist who could put to music and frame the verse to "The Trash Box at the Old Back Door." Let in plenty of fresh air night and day and avoid consumption. Night air is as wholesome as air In the day time. If you expect to "rate" as a gentle? man, you must not spit on the side? walks, nor floors of stores and public buildings. HOW TO CURE RHEUMATISM. It Is an Internal Disease and Re? quires an Internal Remedy. The cause of Rheumatism and kin? dred diseases is an excess of uric acid In the blood. To cure this terrible dis? ease this acid must be expelled and the system so regulated that no more acid will be formed in excessive quan? tities. Rheumatism is an internal disease and requires an Internal rem? edy. Rubbing with Oils and Lini? ments will not cure, affords only tem? porary relief at best, causes you to delay the proper treatment, and al? lows the rr.alady to get a firmer hold on you. Liniments may ease the pain, but they will no more cure Rheuma? tism than paint will change the fibre of rotten wood. Science has at last discovered a perfect and complete euro, which ?1 called "Rheumacide." Tested In hun? dreds of cases, it has effected the most marvelous cures; we believe it will cure you. Rheumacide "g*ts at the Joints from the inside," sweeps the poisons out of the system, tones up the stomach regulates the liver and kidneys and makes you well all over. Rheumacide "strikes the roots of the disease and removes its cause." This splendid remedy is sold by drug? gists and dealers generally at 50c and $1 a bottle. In tablet form at 25c and 50c a package. Trial bottle of Tablets sent by mail on receipt of price 25c. Booklet free. Write to Bobbin Chemical Co., Baltimore. Md. Sold in Sumter by Sibert's Drug Store. 11-19-W. & S. wed. WHY XOT JOIN? A fircat Many Business Men Are Not Momberg of the Chamber of Com? merce. Kdltor Item: I wish to appeal through your space to the men of Sumter in behalf of the Chamber of Commerce. I looked over the books of the treas? urer a few days ago and was sur prlrad to find that the roll did not yet number one hundred; in fact, it was Quite a distance from thai ma?k. I was surprised too not at tho names I did flr.d on It. but at the nanns that I d-d net find on it. The C--mmittee that arranged tli: l.'st s tl'tker found th i name* of n .)<?!:" thiee hundred m?n who w re considered of enough business impor? tance to belong to the Chamber, and the November smoker was attended by about 160 men. These probably consider themselves members of the Chamber, but if they do not get on the books of the treasurer, i. e., if they have not paid their dues, they are not helping much in the work of the Chamber. Sumter needs the Chamber, and the Chamber needs members; needs workers and needs friends. The Chamber does good; it may not hurrah much, but it is at work as every citizen can ascertain by keep? ing in touch with President Jennings and his committeemen. The more Impetus behind the efforts, the furth? er the results will go. The next smoker will be held soon. If you who read this are not mem? bers why not Join now? Don't put it off; you are eager today, indiffer? ent tomorrow, and have forgotten about it the third day. Let us make the Chamber a very live body: let us do It now. A MEMBER.

The Case May be Tried in Some of The other Counties of the State. The State, Feb. 11. W. A. Clark and Wille Jones, pres? idents of the two hading hanking In? stitutions of South Carolina, are to be indicted on a charge of conspiracy to defraud. The announcement was made yesterday by Dr. E. J. Ether edge, chairman of the board of re? ceivers. The other members of the board are Huger Slnkler of Charles? ton, F. G. Tompkins of Columbia, Dr. R. H. Tlmmerman of Aiken and R. M. Kennedy of Allendale. Dr. Etheredge stated last night that the board had been in session two days and that, after considering the matter from every standpoint, it was decided to let these prosecutions bo made. The prosecutions will not come in the name of the receivers, it is said, but in the name of Individual stock? holders, and the action will be in an? other county, possibly Kershaw. Dr. Etheredge stated that every person connected with the Seminole Company would be prosecuted?with one exception, Thos. S. Bryan, one of the trustees. He would give no fur? ther information. Gen. Jones stated last night that he had been expecting something of this kind, "for any hysterical stockholder of any corporation can with shrewd lawyers cause a lot of trouble," said Gen. Jones. "However, I am inno? cent in my motives and I invite rather than defy examination of my record." W. F. Stevenson, E. L. Asbill and E. D. Blakeney, attorneys who had been here for several days, consult-1 ing with the receivers, had rturned to their several homes last night and nothing further about the case could be learned. ?A few minutes delay in treating some cases of croup, even the length Of time it takes to go for a doctor often proves dangerous.

The revolutionists, 1,200 strong, un? der Gens. Chamorro and Masis, cap? tured Matagalpa this morning. On receipt of the news thnt Ma? tagalpa had been taken by Cham? orro, the authorities have declared that the city was undefended, the Government troops have evacuted it. It is rumored, however, that the in? surgents defeated Gen. Porte Carrero, who was in command of eight hun? dred men In the vicinity of Muymuy. and that they continued on to Ma? tagalpa without opposition. The:e they requsitioned all Government moneys and supplies, as when Boaco was taken. There is no concealing the fact that the Government is apprehen? sive. The steam'>r Managua was captur? ed at her wharf here this afternoon by a group of thirty young men of the Conservative party, headed by Alex? ander Solorzano, a relative of Fer? nando Solorzano, leader of this party in Managua, who is now a political prisoner. The capture of the steamer was ef? fected after an exchange of about fifty shcts. The conspirators, some of whom were disguised in women's garb, boarded the steamer, and it Is reported that three of them were killed. The crew were overpowed in i less than five minutes, but the shrill whistle of the vessel spread the alarm. Fifty cavalrymen clattered through the street to the wharf, but arrived only to see the Mangua disappearing in the distance. The city immediate? ly filled with troops and the police arrested fifty men, among whom were the telegraph and telephone operators who failed to give the alarm. The American consul, Jose Olivar es, was barred by the police from making his way through one of the streets, but he insisted on his rights, and was permitted to proceed.

TRUTH TRIUMPHS. Suniter Citizens Testify for the Pub? lic Benefit. A truthful statement of a Sumter citizen, given in his own words, I should convince the most skeptical I about the merits of Doan's Kidney Pills. If you suffer from backache, nervousness, sleeplessness, urinary disorders or any form of kidney ills, the cure is at hand. Read this: E. W. Vogel, S. Main St., Sumter, S. Cm says: "I had severe pains in the small of my back for several years and whenever I attempted to stoop, my suffering was intensified My back became very week and on several occasions I was forced to give up my work. My family physician treated me without giving me any re? lief from the awful pains in my back and I then tried every known remedy on the market but still failed to be benefited. I at last read a testimo? nial regarding Doan's Kidney Pills and was so much impressed that I procured a box of this remedy at China's drug store. After taking the contents 1 was restored to good health and for that reason heartily recommend Doan's Kidney Pills." For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents.
