been trying to get our list on a
cash in advance basis ever since we
took charge of the paper and would
have adopted this method long ago
but for one thing. Personal
friends whom we knew well would
ask for a little time and it would be
a difficult matter to refuse. But
the present system, where the post-
office authorities compell us to dis-
continue the paper at specified
times, entails so much work, book-
keeping and annoyance, and is un-
satisfactory to the puplisher of the
News as well as the subscribers.
For these reasons we will discon-
tinue all subscriptions after Jan. 1,

Day in Jacksboro. March 10 is the

day. There are several national
ho! id Ays, while • locally we only
trictsly observe Thanksgiving,
Fourth of July and Christmas.
We believe we should have two
more, Clean Up Day and Arbor
Day and put Arbor Day in the fall
instead of the spring. Arbor Day
in the spring is all right for the
North, but we can set out trees to
much better advantage in th fall as
the ground is not frozen here as in
the North. If w e would all close
up our businesses and' spend a day
out in the air we would feel better.
The smallpox cases here have all
gotten well and those who were ex-
posed have passed thejimit of time
for taking it. While quarantine
is still maintained all danger of a
further spread of the disease seems
to be passed. Smallpox seems to be
a thing of almost regular occur-
rence in this country of late years
and it is time the people bestirred
themselves to stamp it out. It is
said that smallpox is unknown in
Germany from the fact that the
government forces every person to
be vaccinated twice, once at an
early age and again when grown.
Since the disease has lost much of
its virulence because so many of
the people have been vaccinated
here the people have become care-
less and there are many men and
women who have never been vacci-
nated and the greater part of the
children now growing up have not
been and the parents of many ab-
solutely refuse to have them vacci-
nated. The result of this is that we
ate gradually getting worse all the
time. The virulence of the dis-
ease may return any year and half
the people Of whole towns and com-
munities may perjlsh. If every
body were vaccinated the disease
would be stamped out.

The Dallas Daily News is run-
ning a series of articles on the sub-
ject of City Planning. It certainly
is a live subject and one that needs
considerable discussion and action.
■ There is hardly a town in Texas
that does not even now need parks
and more streets. Land owners
near cities, when they make addi-
tions, make them with the sole pur-
pose of getting as many lots s pos-
sible, with the result that in few
years the conditions are very an
noying, unsafe and unsanitary.
Every town expects to be a big city
some day, but if you approach a
man about opening a street or mak-
ing a park he either wants to wait
till the he and the rest of the citi-
zens are more able to put up the
money or wants to wait and let his
children do it. Somehow, the price
of city lands increase in value so
fast in most Texas towns that the
time for these things will never
come unless there is woring senti-

That Lame Back Means
— And to Relieve the Lame and Aching Back,
You Must First Relieve the Kidneys
There is no question about that
at all—for the lame and aching
back is caused by a diseased con-
dition of the kidneys and bladder.
It is only common sense, any way
—that you must cure a condition
by removing the cause of the con-
dition. And lame and aching back
are not by any means the only
symptoms of derangement of the
kidneys and bladder. There are a
multitude of well-known and un-
mistakable Indications of a more or
less dangerous condition. Some of
these are, for Instance: Extreme
and unnatural lassitpde and weari-
ness, nervous irritability, heart Ir-
regularity, “nerves on edge," sleep-
lessness and inability to secure
rest, scalding sensation and sedi-
ment in the urine, inflammation of
the bladder and passages, etc.
