CONCORD AND CABARRUS COUNTY.
Sells Hired Baggy. Town Will try
to get rid of Mnsquitos.
Concord Times. June 11th.
An effort should be made by the
people of Concord to rid the city
of the mosquito, and this effort
should be entitled to the consid
eration and aid- of all citizens.
Indeed, there can be only meas
urable success without general co
operation. If house-holders per
mit rain barrels and pools of
standing water and open cess
pools in their lots, then mosqui
tos cannot be exterminated, and a
whole neighborhood will suffer
from the neglect or indifference
of one person. It has been shown
that mosquitos -do not travel far,
and if people will clean up their
premises and keep them clean,
the breeding places aroui.d the
houses will be made unproductive.
A trifling amount of work in keep
ing gutters free from pools, of
emptying water from vessels ,iu
the yard and the use each week of
a few cents' worth of oil are all
that is required.
A man giving his name as W.
E. West, of Spencer, came tc Con
cord last Friday and hired a horse
and buggy from Brown Bros.,
liverymen, saying he wanted to
go three or four miles in the coun
try. As he did not return by
night the Messrs. Brown became
anxious about the safety of their
animal and began making in
quiries about its whereabouts, and
Saturday morning M. L. Brown
telephoned some parties in Char
lotte Asking them to look for the
outfit. He was called up later
by Shakespeare Harris, who told
him that his horse and buggy was
in Charlotte, that the buggy had
been sold, but the horse was at
thastable. Mr. Brown asked Mr.
Harris to take charge of them
for him, which he did.
