Austin, Texas, March 24,— In eon-
neelioa witli Hie Cleaii-Up Week to lie
iiehl Man'll 29tli, Dr. Jwiui vv. Brown,
state health officer, urges citizens of
the State to give speeiid altentioa to-
ward destroying the breeding places of
mosquitoes and Hies. i
With the usual accumulation of
winter’s debris, the necessity of its
prompt removal from the health stand-
point is apparent. Conditipns that fos-
ter tiy-breeding are definitely menac-
ing to the welfare of all citizens, a lid
Flies breed in dirt. There is noth-
ing they like better. They breed in
yards, on plots of ground, and on farms
whore decaying vegetable and animal
matter and other fly-utfracting sub-
stances have been permitted to pile up.
fu prevent epidemics later in the
season, it ix essential that Conditions
’that represent breeding places for
Hies anil mosquitoes he removed im-
Ail cesspools should be cleaned and
limed and out-houses should tie made
[ly-proof. It is not only good house-
keeping but ttie best kind of common
sense health protection to remove' all
waste material In or around the yards
of homes. ' . .
Health Week merely starts the cam-
paign ;• the .jute,cess of Clean Up meas-
ures rests .entirely on the. shoulders

She was horn in Hope, Lavaca Coun-

Not long since a traveling man, who
makes regular trips through South
Texas^ remarked in the .Herald office
that a certain town about sixty miles
yvest of Edna, was one of the deadest
towns in his territory. We asked, him
what was the trouble and he said
lie was told that too nfany of the peo-
ple in that town were going away to
purchase their supplies, and as a re-
sult the laiyne-town merchants were
not airfi- to carry up-to-date stocks of
goods. That might all be true or it
might not. However, the town in ques-
tion has one of the best und brightest
newspapers that reaches the Herald’s
exchange table. The lifst two weeks
we read the paper carefully and failed
to find in its columns an ad from u
single dry goods or grocery store. The
thought occurred to us that perhaps
the people, of the town were not to lie
blamed for trading away from home.
Merchants who refuse to advertise
their goods and let tile trailing public
know "what they' have to offer and at
what price, can not reasonably ex-
pect the trading public to support
them. This traveling man then went
on to say that there is-not a great (leal
of difference In-tween Hie town he had
mentioned and Ednu In point of jKipu-
tion, hut in a business way Edna
was head and shoulders above it. "In
Edna you‘have a bunch of energetic
wide-awake business men, whose
stores aje a real credit to your little
town and their lllieral advertising is
bringing mpre people to Edna to"trade
than the uvernge
