TYPHOID CLINICS TO
BE HELD AT TWO j
PLACES IN COUNTY
(Continued from peffv o>ie)
Authorities assert that some people
are natural carriers o f typhoid
germs, while but few such unfortun
ates are ever aware of the fact, and
that any person coming in contact
with such "carriers" is almost certain
to fall victim to the disease, hence
the importance of being vaccinated
against the awful thing. It la said
that three treatments will absolutely
guarantee one against contracting the
disease for a period of at least three
ywars, " * .
Local conditions cause typhoid to
spring out, it is said by the health
department. It comes from water,
when springs, wells or water systems
are exposed to matter that creace
the germ; it comes from milk when
it is handled in certain uncleanly
manner, and it comes more often
from the "typhoid carrier," explained
above. One other condition, if im
properly maintained, creates the germ
and that is the matter of sewerage
disposal. - ???#!
The department urges every home
owner using water from springs to
ditch above and around the spring,
turning al! water on the surface away
from the spring. Then the spring
should be completely and thoroughly
covered, preferably by cement, with
a drain pipe in use carrying the wat
er from the enclosed spring to the
bucket. This protects the "water from
contamination, and prevents any ty
phoid germ from entering the water.
Premises about the house should be
kept free of all refuse that would
prove a hatching place for typhoid
But science's best method is that
of vaccination. The state is conduct
ing these clinics free of all charge,
and it is the expressed wish of the
authorities that as many citizens as
so desire will present themelves for
the treatment at the places and dates
above named. Men, women and chil
dren, from any section of the county,
are included in the state's invitation
to avail themselves of this opportun
ity to guard against typhoid.
There is no epidemic of typhoid in
any section of the county, it is point
ed out, and these precautions are be
ing taken to make Transylvania coun
ty stand at the head of the list in
the health column. The presence of
a few cases in the county is looked
upon as a challenge to the citizenship,
hence this ready action against any
disease that threatens the men, wom
en and children of Transylvania

NEWS AND VMS OF
THE TAR HEEL STATE
(By Mark Taylor Orr)
N^nathala Gorge, near Robbina
ville, became the scene of excitement
and mystery several weeks ago when
a party of hikers found parts of a
human skeleton deep in a cave there. '
A native of the section reported :
recently that the cave has been visit- 1
ed by many of the people living in .
that vicinity but they had always ?
held the opinion that it was bottom- 1
le3s. He assured authorities that thi j
skeleton was that of an Irishman
who made his appearance in Nana
thala over thirty years ago. The
Irishman mysteriously disappeared
disappeared and his identity and dis
appearance was never solved.
The terrible and destructive fires
in the forest areas in this and other ,
states should have focused the public
attention on the problem.
Thousands of acres oi' timber have
been devastated ? families left home- j
less, human and anima! lives destroy
ed ? streams polluted and beautiful
forests turned into useless wastes.
Many of the losses by fire may and j
have been laid t6 arson ? really the
most despicable of all crimes. The !
vacationist, the smoker, camper, hun- j
ter, all have become responsible for
thi serious fire tolls taken each year.
We hear big talk over forest con
servation; yet the work of many
years is often wiped away by! the
dropping of a small match or cigar- j
ette. Let's work together and actual- [
ly outlaw the forest fire problem.
Do you realize that fire prevention
begins in the individual home and
that if North Carolina is to succeed
in lowering the annual fire toll; the,
direct cooperation of its homes will !
If we guard our homes and busi
ness houses regularly and safely
against fire, then the forest fire
problem will be lowered accordingly.
Eight out of ten fires may be placed
to the carelessness of the individual.
And when citizens awake to the fact
that they themselves are directly or
indirectly responsible, then we will
be able to control preventable fires
i Pl&ns for the second annual stale- [
1 wide Industrial Safety Conference :
are being perfected and it has been '
announced that the meeting will be
held in Charlotte, November 5th and
6th, under the auspices of the North
Carolina Industrial Commission. I
The first conference was held at
High Point last year and approxi
mately 900 delegates acting as safety
officials from various firms and or
ganizations, were present.
| Problems peculiar to certain types
of industry will be discussed and
theories as to their solution, studied
A recent farm bulletin expressed
the opinion that North Carolina land
j owners are seeking sources of ad
ditional income and market plac? tor
surplus forage and other feedstulfs.
It further said that such landowners
might find it profitable to turn to
sheep on the farm flock basis.
There are very few farms on which
' there is not a small amount of waste
land, some pasture or extra forage
grounds where sheep might be raised
to an advantage.
Alert farmers of the state are ar
ready investigating in small flocks
I to start them on the new enterprise,
j when other measures have failed.
Autumn weather, beautiful in its j
(clear snapping mornings, cool re
j freshing evenings and with crisp at
j mosphere throughout the day, is lut- j
| ing large number of nature lovers to I
the Great Smoky Mountains. Excel--'
by none, the Smokies still remain a
popular rendezvous for tourists and
natives. Beautiful Indian summer is
arriving, the most wonderful season ;
of the year, and its charms lead the j
nature lover to enjoy its short ses- j
sion with us.
The U. S. Commerce department is
shortly to make an intensive economic
study of Carolina's turpentine In
dustry, as part of a nation-wide sui
vey of the entire turpentine trade.
A large volume of the national out
put of turpentine is produced in this
state. The results of this survey will
be of great value to the producers
and distributors of the state as well
as the entire south.
Have you noticed the employment
situation during the last few weeks.
Land owners from various sections,
are reporting that the unemployed
are refusing jobs. Cotton farmers
say that they cannot get men or wo
men to pick their cotton, even though
they are out of positions; the unem
ployed are refusing such jobs as
picking cotton, working corn, road
work and street jobs.
It may be pride, false pride! But
3uch a spirit will never do anything
to aid in this depression.
The man who is willing to help his
family, his community, his state and
himself will avail himself of any job
that might tide him over until better
Cooperation is the word we want.
Cooperation is the only key word to
relieve depression. Cooperation is
necessary if we are to secure better
roads, lower tax rates, lower illiter
ate ratios, realize Carolina oppor
tunities and in every way aid the
state of today. What are you going
to do about it?
Regular school attendance is one
important factor of education which
should be emphasized. Some of the
principal causes of poor attendance
are sickness, poverty, weather, work,
parental indifference and truancy.
Of course, sickness cannot be pre
vented in many instances, but in
thousands of cases it can, at least it
should and can be kept to a minimum.
Weather has long been a bad cause
of lowering attendance, but the ma
