Tbe Standardization ol Public
Method* of Health"'!!" rk.
That public leealth work should
be standardized for the greateset
efficiency of service is the new and
progressive opinion of Dr. W. S.
Rankin. He believes this principle,
that is as old as the knowledge of
weights and measures, is the .fun
dameitfal basis upon which rests
the success of nil future public
health work. As similarity of
conditions determines more or less
the feasibility of such a method,
he recommends that tbe county be
taken as a unit and iu an inltmiive
As the county is the field of
election, the first essential toward
standardization, then, is necessari
l.v an efficient health official?u
practice and skill. Dr. Rankin in

In memory of our father W. P.
Shaw, died November 27th. 1913.
Oh, Father thy gentle voice is
Thy warm true heart is still,
And on thy pale and peaceful face
Is resting deaths cold chill.
Through all pains at times he'd
A smile of heavenly birth.
And when the angels called him
He smiled farewell to earth.
Thy hands are clasped upon thy
We have kissed thy marble brow,
And in our aching hearts we know,
We have no father now.
We loved him, yes we loved him.
But the angles loved him too,
So now he's sweetly sleeping,
Beneath the sky so blue.

Dear Hertford County Her
ald, your weekly visits u> an
exile is a letter of news that we
read with pleasure. I want to re
turn thanks to you and the manv
I was born in Hertford County
and lived in it until 1 was 58 years
old. In I Went to the first
Preaching Servfte that I remember
at Union, and the first Sunday
School I ever attended was there
also, and I am going to call the
roll of my first class. Beginning,
with my teacher, George Wynn,
Bob Riddick, Bob Montgomery,
Jim Brett,* George Brown, Jule
Brown, Fale Benthall, Pleasant
Holloman, Baskem Beverley, Ben
Beverley, Kate Parker, Rend
Sewell, Dick Night. We' all sat
on a bench, so that most of our
bare feet could not touch the floor,
with a blue back selling book to
study. The most 1 remember of
that lesson was Mr. Wynn's looks.
The most of that clsss has an
swered the last roll call on earth,
and to James E. Britt I owe my
invitation to go in Church and
S. S. My father was in the Civil
War. and he begged my mother to
let me go with him, and his recent
death was mourned by me. Uncle
Tom Wright Hayes was the Super
intendent, and he preached. All I
remember was.the glass of water
he had on the pulpit, and his man
ner of taking a sip every few
minutes, and how I wanted some.
I am going to close by afcking
your correspondents to keep up
the news and tell us all of it.

decided that the club add its
sheer social purposes, something
of a literary character. To this
end, each member is requested to
uriug with him to the next meet
ing, and deposit temporarily, some
book that has interested him.
These books having been read by
the several members, may then be
discussed one at a time, at the
regular semi-monthly meetings.
This literary featura is, however,
not to the exclusion of, but mere
ly an addition to the real social
functions of the organization.
Following the business meeting
were a series of contests all ready
and skillfully arranged by the
programme committe. These con
tests proved a source of amuse
ment, if not of extreme pleasure
in all instances. It is never-the-less
sufficient to state that the early
hours of the night sped by in quick
succission and unnoticed.
Those present were: Mias Janie
Bell Baker, Miss Stephens Oarrick,
Miss Blanch Gerock, Miss Pattie
Leary, Miss Blanch McNeill and

party disbanded with all faces
turned toward the home of M*s.
