E. I. Reunion Tells of Necessity of

The establishment of a county tu?
berculosis -amp, ar d the reporting of
cases of tuberculosis during their In
clplency are unquestionably very de
sirat'.d for the treatment of patients,
and ab., to a large extent to safe?
guard the public health. Treatment
of tuberculosis is important and hu?
mane, the segregation of all com?
municable diseases within reasonable
bounds is a.mo of vital importance.
But head and shoulders above the
reporting, treatment, and Isolation of
tuberculosis, and all ? other diseases,
communicable or otherwise, is the ed?
ucation of the masses of the people as
to how to avoid contracting and com?
municating diseases to others.
An ounce of prevntion is always
worth more to the individual and to
the public than many thousands
Hinds of cure.
The safeguarding of the public
health is really the main reason for
Isolation of tuberculosis, and quaran?
tine of all communicable diseases, the
individual suffering being, to a large
extent lost sight of in the desire to
protect the public health ihruu?n
spread of communicable diseases.
But narrowed down to its original
analysis am common sense view it
is the individual responsibility to take
care of your own health in order to
safeguard other people's health. The
protection of the public health begins
with the protection of the Individual's
physiclal condition necessarily.
Education of the masses of the
Ignorant as to the best me?' ds of
protecting their individual health in
order to avoid contracting of com
munnicable diseases will do away
with thousands of cases of tuber?
culosis, typhoid fever, diphtheria,
hookworm, malaria, dysentery, and
other diseases spread through ignor?
ance of the necessary precautionary
Hence the importance of a county
or unit health survey to educate the
masses how to protect individual, fam?

Education of tho masses along thin

The advocate of a tuberculods

The Progressive Farmer.
Misled by the glamor of 20 cent
cotton, there is grave danger that
many a Southern farmer will stake
his all on this ono crop?forgetting
that cotton, compared with other
commodities, is not really high priced;
forgetting the need for living at home
first of all; forgetting the great les?
son that soil fertility must come find
in successful farming.
By spring, corn will probably be
selling for $1*10 a bushel, flour at
$12 a barrel, hay at $2fi to $30 a ton.
Cottonseed meal and acid phosphate
are soaring, and potash fertilizers in
quantity can not be had at all; conse?
quently every farmer who expects to
get his soil fertility in seeks is going
to have to pay dearly for it. Shoes
and leather goods of all kinds are
higher than this generation has ever
known; Implements, wire fencing ami
nails are high and apparently going
All In all. then, cotton, relatively,
is not high, True ,it is now 50 per
cent, higher than the standard price
of recent years, but practically every
thing else we eat, wear, or otherwise
use Is also GO per cent, or more high
er. This being true?and any ma
with his eyes open knows that it If
true?where there is a particle o:
logic or common sense in rushing pell
mell Into all cotton'.'
Whether cotton Is high or low, fo.
the cotton farmer anywhere in the
South we have consistently held that j
there is one and only one sound, safe
plan, and that is to provide for food,
feed and soil fertility first, and then
raise what cotton he can on the acre?
age not devoted to this live at home
crops. This means?
1. A good garden, plenty of Irish
and uweet potatoes, cane for syrup,
fruit trees, a big bunch of producing
hens, some good cows to furnish
plenty of milk and butter, plenty of
meat hogs, and corn and wheat for
2. A first class pasture to furnish
grazing for the chickens, hogs, cattle
and horses, a good acreage in cats
followed by peas or beans to furnish
cheap fed next summer and fall, and
an abundance of corn and peas or
beans to insure us against having to
buy feed another season.
:?. A legti me crop on every acre
every year, to build up our lands and j
save fertilizer bills. It is of course too
late to put In next spring a big acre?
age of peas, soy and velvet boans, J
and peanuts. Then next fall let ik;
begin With crimson colver and use It j
hereafter as a green manure crop to
plow under next spring for our corn.
Which shall It be for you. Brother |
