which attacks all ages and conditions of people is likely to be more serious in the case of children than in that of adultsIn people an attack of acute laryngitis is rarely fatal al though its symptoms which include breathlessness and sometimes com plate loss of voice often give rise to much alarm In children the passages arc narrower and they are less able tp throw oft the secretions with the result that an attack of e laryngitis may become croupous in character and consequently danger ous to life When a child develops a tendency to attacks of laryngitis a thorough examination of the air passages should be made by a specialist in throat disorders and in most cases some contraction or chronic inflam mation will be found which calls for correction The importance of this will be recognized when it is understood by parents that one at tack predisposes to others until unfortunate child becomes the vie tim of socalled the least exposure or indiscretion and all the time the trouble may be caused by the mouth breathing which keeps the throat and all the air passages in a state of irritation and delicacy An attack of acute laryngitis in predisposed to it may be brought in various ways Sitting with feet will often do the mischief or gas or gct ting too cold or going too long food or in short doing any thing or permitting anything tint serves to depress the general vitality for no organ of the body resents any insult offered to the general system more thoroughly than does an irrit voice This form is seen in the o case of what is known as clergy mans sore throat but it is not necessary to be a clergyman to have it and the average college student the day after a boat race may be trusted to have acquired a fair case of laryngitis Sometimes the voice is only hoarse or husky but in se vere cases it may be completely gone owing to the local thickening of the parts The treatment of this disease is both general and local Local ap plications are first for the thorough cleansing of the affected parts that has been accomplished and astringent icmctlics arc applied This treatment should be given by the physician Singularities China has j ut received from

of our electric light service compares with the very best plant in the country and is much superior to that of many towns in this section of this size And shows that we have about the cheapest rate to be found Elk ton has for about two months been enjoying the advantages of electric lights and has excellent service the people immensely The rates there are almost treble ours on the whole The flat rate is 65 cents per month per light while the meter rate has a minium of 3 per month which is generally exceeded by most users The people there however are enthusiastic beyond expression and arc taking the fast as they can be installed and there is not a grumbler This should allay the idea that some of our people have as they think they are being held up for a when they pay 125 per month for their residences the minimum on the scale and rarely use the amount to which they are entitled In this as in many things a close comparison will show this to be one of the best towns in this sec tion Our people do not claim that this is the best town on earth or any like foolishness but it is a fact recognized by most of our people that we have advantages over most towns and these people rather

Light and Water Co held after the annual meeting of the Stockhold ers on Sept 5 1910 the following motion was made and carried unanimously by the eight Directors present That the price charged per thousand gallons for water in the city of Greenville be raised from 25c per thousand gallons to 40c per thousand gallons and that the manufacturing rate be raised from 15c per thousand gallons to 20c per thousand gallons the minimum charge of 100 per month to remain the same but to cover only two thousand five hundred gallons of water This change to go into effect on Oct 1 1910 The board of Directors wish to set forth to the citizens of Greenville the reason for this action The Company has in vested at the present time in the Water Works the sum of 2160088 from which it derived an income during the last year of 224414 this being less than one half of the annual income from the Light plant or the Ice plant each of which represent a smaller investment than the Water plant There is a considerable portion of the city which does not have the water service and the citizens residing there are justly calling for water mains Considering this fact together with the fact that the income from the Water plant does not pay the expenses the Board of Directors decided that the only action they could take which would be fair to the citizens and the Stockholders would be to raise the rate charged for water The Board trusts that the consumers effected by this raise will understand the reason for this action Board of Directors G L W Co J A GILMAN Secty 1 111 A 8 operating z toe J At 600D
