the Citizens Make it A town or city is just what Its exchanges peopleu formed into a garden that will bloom like a rose and a straggling settle ment into a thriving city Give it the wrong sort of citizens and all the advantages of soil climate and geographical position and wealth will go for naught The stockyards and elevators did not make Chicago pork packing did not make Cincinnati railroads and the Mississippi didnt make St Louis In each of these the citizens are the cause and the effect The cities had public spirited men and they attracted the kind of business man whioh are located in

exchange in speaking of the nixnoer of drowning recently throughout the country says in part Every boy and girl should be taught to swim and how to take care of themselves in the water As a good swimmers are less reckless than others as they know the dangers of the water A boy who know how hard it is to get to the with his clothes on IsI not the one to rock the boat Swimming ought to be part of the training ot every youth and they should also be taught how to resuscitate people who have taken much water Into their lungs These things should be a part of the course in the public school system We think it would be an excellent thing to have some swimming pools Hickman where youths as well as others could learn to swim without having logo into the awful current I the river Bath houses could be I erected and a small fee charged forII the purpose of keeping them upII I The negro troops that have been stationed at Brownsville Texas have been removed upon the request- of the citizens
