Knox15000 Snbscribed Green County in Earnest At a meeting of the promoters of the countyrbody of the most enterprising citizens of the town and southeast end of the county were present A motion was made to organize and incorporate for a pike from Greensburg to a point near Ebenezer church in Green county and from that point run one branch of the pike to the Adair county line via Camp Knox and another branch via Miami to the Adair county line inviting and re duesting the Adair county people to meet us at the point best suited to them but an amendment was offered in view of the fact that there was but one man present from the Miami branch and as the CampKnox branch was rep resented by a full and sufficient amount to build their branch that the piker company proceed to incorporate to the Adair county line by Camp Knox giv ing the Miami branch the opportunity to join the pike as soon as they could raise their funds and inviting and re h questing them to do so at the earliest ossible date It was moved that the Capital Stock be 1500000 and the body proceeded to subscribe the stock raising the 50 per cent required by law to incorporate which amounted to 7 50000 The people of the town and those from the country went to work in earnest an all together the business men leaving their stores banks and offices and spending the day working in the interest of the enterprise together with the men from the country to help reach the necessary amount to incorporate They succeeded in hav ing 7500 00 signed up and the papers acknowledged and now are ready to be sent to

every man in the town and in the country most vitally interested had not all worked together and while the work is not done for there are several thousand dollars more to raise to com plete this branch and every man in the county must give all he can and all those who cannot give money must give their influence whether this first branch of pike will run where it ben efits them or not for when this is com pleted others will immediately be be gun and everybody will unite then in an effort for pikes in every direction after realizing the great toll they have paid to bad roads and mud And then the pike from Miami Milltown and Gradyville must be built and pikes from Greensburg to Thurlow Exie and Liletown and to Donansburg Sum mersville and Brush Creek 750000 was signed up today Some 400000

people of Columbia and Adair county The time is close at hand when it becomes necessary to look after the sanitary condition of the communit While cleanliness is necessary at all times it is particularly important during the Spring and Summer months The public health is more and more engaging the attention of the people It is much easier to prevent disease than to cure it It is much easier to prevent an epidemic than to stop it after it has commenced It is imp01 t ant that every housekeeper in the county should look after the condition of his own premises The town Council should examine into the sanitary condition of every street and alley in the town every mud hole should be filled up and all the publi property should be looked into The I jail should be given special attention to see that all the drain pipes and sew ers are performing their functions well It has been proven that house flies are carriers of disease and they should therefore be screened from ever dwelling The butchers stalls should be screened and no flies allowed to touch a piece of fresh meat intende for the market It has been demonstrated that mosquitoes are the carrier of the germs of malaria yellow fever and probably other infectious diseases therefore their breeding places should be broken up Every rain barrel shoul be covered Every old vessel abou anybodies premises containing water should be destroyed and every stagnant pool or pond should be drained fi led and disinfected During the coming summer weeds should not be permitted to accumulate in the streets alleys or gardens Al the back yards should be looked after The school trustees should look after he condition of the school grounds and privies The colleges particularly should see that every thing is kept lean The health officer should be notified of every outbreak of measles whooping cough scarlet fever dipthe ria typhoid fever or smallpox that breaks out in the schools The health officer is required to look after all these hings in any part of the county when notified that such things exist I want his year to surpass all others in the health of the people I will go any day into any part of the county to see after any of these diseases It is made bylaw the duty of every physician to notify me of every outbreak of the above- mentioned troubles When there is no physician it is made the duty of the parents to give me notice It is just as important to prevent an epidemic of leasles as it is to prevent one of small pox Whooping cough kills far more eople in this county than smallpox and why should it be allowed to spread U L TAYLOK Health Officer Col Ben Lee Hardin was in Lebanon last week making speeches for the lo cal option people The stone masons are again at work- on the foundation for the

write to the dear old News First I must tell you that we father mother and myself have been away from Kentucky for something like twelve years but we yet think of it as home1 About ten years of this time we lived in Southern Illinois but once again as often before the Texas fever struck father and so after selling our little home we started for that Sopftecji State and here we have been for 4 about two years We find the climate delightful after our stay in Illinois where the winters are so cold Our winters here are very pleasant we may have a few days of cold weather but nothing like six and seven weeks of snow and ice like we had in Illinois The summers here are not so hot as many would think for most always we have a good breeze which makes the day pleasant and insures a goodnights sleep Taking every thing into consideration I think Tarrant county is a fine old place We have all enjoyed better health since coming here than ever before and for this one thing we are so very thankful I suppose it isnt worth while Ito say that cotton is the main crop everyIFruit is fine indeed and all who love watermelons should come to Texas as we have those that are fit for a king As to our place of abode will say we are located on a ten acre truck farm five miles from Ft Worth which is quite a city also avery pretty place If my friends who read this would like to know what we are doing will say we are garden ing this year This is a fine place for such work as early veg atables are in great demand and one gets a good price for same Should any of my old time school mates see this and will write to me I would be glad to hear from them and will answer all letters received Before closing would like to ask the corres pondent of Vester to write often to the News as dearly love
