DANGER AFTER GRIPPE
Lies in Poor Blood, Cough and
GriDDe. Dleurisv. pneumonia are
ereatly to be feared at this Season.
To prevent grippe from being fol
lowed by either pleurisy or pneumo
nia, it is important to drive the last
traces of it out of the system.
Our advice is to take Vinol, our
delicious cod liver and iron prepara
tion without oil, and ' get your
strength and vitality back quickly.
W. W. Lake of Aberdeen, Miss.,
says: Grippe left me weak, run-down
and with a severe cough from which
I suffered for a long time. I tried
different remedies, but nothing .seem
ed to do me any good until I took
Vinol from which I received great
benefit. My cough is almost entirely
gone and I am strong and well again."
Try Vinol with the certainty that
if it does not benefit you we will give
back your money.

Clean Up &aj for Salisbury was a Great
The Civic League and other
ageucies deserve great- praise for
the enthusiasm manifested in
cleaning up the city. It is esti
mated that more than $500 worth
of work was done by. the white
and colored ohildren. Filtb of all
kinds was removed, yards cleaned
up, old e'yesore plaoea whitewash'
ed, fljwers planted, e'c. The
ohildren of both races were given
a special entertainment by Man
ager T. B. Marsh of the Grubb
theatre. The entertainment was
free, all the admission necessary
was a card signed by parent,
guardian or teacher, showing that
the ohild had helped to olean up
the city. Imagine the vast
amount of work that ccuM be
done by the children. Now, if
this work will be kept up during
She spring and summer, keeping
all old cans and various kinds of
filth from the yards and from un
der the houses, it certainly will
be oonducive to health. The
teachers of the city, as well as
the various clubs have done their
part well. Let the parents and
friends of cleanliness and good
health stimulate all the children
to keeping everything in good con
dition, and our town can be free
from sickness. The United States
government made the filthy, mias-
initio, mosquito-infected swampB
of the Panama f zone a healthy
place. Yellow fever was annihi
lated. They simply spent time
and money to drive out disease. If
every tamuy would keep tneir
own lot well cleaned and in a
sanitary condition, we would not
have any sickness. Flies, and
mosquitoss would be foreigners to
At the same time all back lots,
alleys, etc , should be carefully
looked after by the city authori
ties. The citizens m general
should be proud of the good work
done by the ohildren. Would it
not pay parents and friends to
give the children an occasional
dime to do some extra cleaning.
Try the plau and note the result.

soon as it is finished. Now
don't smile because we have stated
this matter in a way in which
there is no doubt about tue mat
ter. You see this is the way ev
erything works, nothing is done
until it is finished . This is the
same way with the addition to the
round house, promised six or eight
years ago, also with the great
blow about running the tracks
through Spenor, etc., etc Tney
will all be done when finished .
If the Southern does actually
get busy and fix up this street, it
will be greatly appreciated by
Palisburians and the traveling
There is also som talk of con
structing a tunnel at the Kerr
Street crossing as a matter of safe
ty to citiiens passing at that
point. This is a good idea and
would likely be a good investment.
