Tho few cess pools that nro loft were

But nUer all Ablleno camo In for a
wonderful nmoutit of praise. In tho
first placo tho now T. & P. station
received special mention. Dr. Carrlck
anld that It Is one of tho most Hnnltary
and best Jiept stations In tho United
States nml a credit to our city. The
ufllclunt work of Agent Heading In

tlst church were mentioned as the
cleanest nnd most sanitary public
buildings In tho city whllo all of the

remarks as did our white way. The

average and Dr. Carrlck was ereatlY
'pleased to find ovory grocery store In
tho city well screened and complying
with tho pure food and health laws of
