To the Public.
At a recent meeting of the city
council the sanitary condition of
the city was discussed and it was
decided that as city health officer
I request the public through Tun
BitowNSViLUC Herald to begin at
once and put their premises in as
sanitary a condition as possible
by draining off any water which
migixt be in their yards cut down
and destroy all weeds burn trash
and disinfect privy vaults by the
use of crude carbolic acid chlorin-
ated lime or corrosive sublimate.
Aud as it has been thoroughly de-
monstrated that the mosquito is
the sole transuiittor of many dia-
stases especially malaria dengue
and yellow fever the city will wage
a war or extermination upon these
little pests by the persistent use
of coal oil to the surface of water
contained in tanks cisterns etc.
provided they are not screened or
otherwise protected from the devel-
opment of the mosquito. This oil
shall be applied once or where nec-
essary twice a Week ''during the
hot months. If we will all give this
matter our attention and work to-
gether we will soon have our city
iu as sanitary a condition as is pos-
sible under the present circums-
tances. L F. Laytoj

Letter to Joe L. Putegnat.
Dear Sir: We suspect you'd like
the tale how a woman beat two
hardware dealers in Girard Pa.
We tried our best to get those
men to sell Devoe lcad-and-zinc in
the bright town; and failed. Re-
luctantly took Mrs E R Bowman
They said they couldn't sell
paint for more than $1.25 a gallon.
Mrs Bowman can. She has sold
about all the paint that has been
sold there since.
She knew Devoe; had sold our
artists' materials. Had some sense
and force besides; she easily learn-
ed the cheap is dear iu paint and
told it to people.
Mr Burt Young bought a gal-
lon Devoe for rooms that had al-
ways taken a gallon of other paint;
had half left.
Mr E. H Hiler jeweler painted
Devoe and says it goes further
Mr John Hannn grocer thought
it expensive before he bought it;
brought back nearly half of his
paint and said it wns the cheapest
job he ever had.
Mrs Bowman reports universal
satisfaction. So much foracheap-
paint town with a bright woman
iu it. Yours truly
