THE WORLD'S CALL FOR
"And in every work that began
he did it with all his heart and
prospered." 2nd Chronicles, Chap.. 31,
.Verse 21. . ,
For nearly five years the world
was busy destroying the accum
ulations of centuries, and during that
tnne it had to leave undone the things
which ordinarily would have, been
done. Now every - man on earth
must 4n one way or another bear
some of the burden of Germany's
war upon civilization and hasten to do
the things which need to be done.
For five vears dwellmcs were lef 1 1

and unrepaired; food was consumed
and destroyed more Rapidly than it
was produced 40,000,0000 to 50,-
000,000 men battled for existence or
prepared for J.he great struggle;
railroads building ceased, highway
construction stopped, streets were
unrepaired, hotels were not con-
structed to meet the world's mcreas-
ing travel. The result as there 1S
now an enormous vacuum of empty

There is only, one way to overcome
the situation. All the combined pow
er of all the Governments of earth
cannot change the inescapable, unal-
terable facts. But men, individually,
and collectively, can meet the prob-
lems we face by work, hard driving
work; by work of brain and brawn
and machine power.

work elps to create wealth and will
help the world to carry and eventual-

to feed and clothe the world and will
lessen the cry of hunger which has
fed the fires of Bolshevism in Eu

brain, are but plants for the produc
tion of things which will add to the
world's wealth and help to fill up
the world's vacuums.
The work must be done by every

THE NEW SANITATION LAW.
Only a short time remains for the
people of Tryon to comply with the
sanitation law enacted by the last
legislature and avoid the . penalties
provided under the law. Every
home that is not connected with a
water sewerage system is affected.
' Discussing the new law and its en
forcement Mayor Bacon says:
"It is the duty of every good citi
zen" to heartily join in the efforts
being made to rid the community of
typhoid fever and similar diseases.
The health authorities have pointed
out the source of these diseases,
and have shown the method of con
troling them. With such knowedge
available there is no excuse for the
presence of a case of typhoid fever,
and it is the plain duty of every res
ident to see that he and his family
are protected by having his own
"The health authorities have dem
onstrated that typhoid fever and sim
ilar diseases are excrement , bourne
diseases There is no guess work
about this; it has been conclusively
proven. It therefore follows, as
health authorities point out, that the
proper disposal of human excrement
means the removal of the source of
these diseases. In the face of these
admitted facts I do not. believe that
there is a man in this town who will
deliberately endanger the lives of
his own loved ones the H of
his neighbors by failing to take the
means provided and advised for

The man suddenly became animated.
"I made that," he said. "Hammered

those figures on the outside. Nothing
but somp playing of mine," he added.
