Austin, Texas.—Recent floods
may be responsible for an epidemic
of typhoid fever, declares Dr. John
W. Brown, State Health Officer.
Flood conditions have prevailed ov-
er most of the State and unless the
utmost precautions are observed to
prevent this dis ase the monetary
loss from illness may equal the
Typhoid fever is often called n
“filth-borne" disease. It can only
grow into epidemic proportions
under conditions which are insani-
tary. A typhoid epidemic means
that water, milk, or food have been
contaminated with germs from the
body discharges of a patient or
carrier. Contamination of milk or
food by flies is favored by a lack
The prevention of typhoid fever
is peculiarly a matter of community
responsibility. In cities large and
small most urgent control measures
are those providing for (1) proper
disposal of human excreta through
sewage disposal plants and toilets
of sanitary type; (2) safe public
and well water supplies; (3) exter-
mination of flies; (4) healthy food
handlers; (6) supervision of dis-
ease carirers and (6) public milk
supplies of high quality with the
added safeguard of careful pasteur-

It is evident what the average
family needs is food, clothing,
houses, automobiles, radios, and a
big income with which to pay taxes.
But instead of being able to enjoy ,
them in increasing measure, the
contrary is, in fact, the case.
The fact is that no country is
giving its own citizens sufficient
purchasing power to consume th irj
own production, which means that
each country is anxious to export1
and not import. If each country}
gave its own citizens enough pur-j
chasing power to consume the whole ,
of their own production, then no,
country would have any objection to
exporting their surplus and receiv-
ing back in exchange the production
of other countries. They would have
enough purchasing power to con-
sume both the retained portion of
their own production and the im-
ports which they received in ex-
change for their exports.
Only by a sane monetary system,
nationally and internationally, will
it be possible to solve this and the
other problems which are now ex-
ercising the minds of nil thinking
men and would eliminate the de-
struction of food, which has so
shocked the conscience of the world.

of residence are subject to varied

“Cut out the old dewberry and
blackberry vines now,” says J. F.
Rosborough, Extension horticultur-
ist. “Leave three or four of the new
canes and whin they get about
three feet or a little better, top
them,” he says. "All this makes for
increased production next year. Al-
so, picking will be easier.”
Tomatoes are suckering too much
due to recent rains, Rosborough
states. The thing to do is to pinch
back all except three or four suck
ers and when these have set a
cluster of fruit pinch their tops
off so all the strength of the plant
will go into development of quality

X. it is a Sin to Drink Intoxicat-
ing Liquor. “Look not thou upon
the wine when it is red. . . At the
last, it biteth like a serpent and
stingeth like an adder. ’- Prov.
23:31. “Wine is a mocker, strong
drink a brawler, whosoever erreth
thereby is not wise.”—Prov. 20:1,
R. V. “And be not drunken with
wine wherein is riot, but be filled
with the Spirit.”—Eph. 5:18, R. V.
2. It is a Sin to Sell or Give
Liquor to Make Drunkards, ”Woe
unto him that giveth his neighbor
drink, that puttest thy bottle to
him, or that addest thy venom
thereto, and mnkest him drunken
also.”—Hub. 2:15, R. V. “How can
a man send others to hell and be
saved himself.” “He that biddeth
him Godspeed is partaker of his
evil deeds.” II John 11.
3. No Drunkard Can Inherit the
Kingdom of God. “Be not deceived.
Neither thieves nor covetous, nor
drunkards, nor revilers, nor extor-
tioners shall inherit the kingdom of
God."—1 Cor. 6:10.
4. Tax or License? “Woe to him
that buildeth a town with blood
and estnblisheth a city by iniquity.”
