We acknowledge receipt of the March
bulletin of the Asheville Health De
partir.ent. It is fu.l of useftl hints
on heatlh and sanitation. How many
city health departments in' North Caro
lina are sufficiently supported and
managed with sufficient enterprise to
publish a health bulletin each month?
As far as we knew, Asheville, is the
only one. Obser- ation of Asheville's
activity in this matter, which is of
prime importance to all cities, should
be suggestive to ot'icr cities of the
wisdom of putting on a little mor
steam in this clcraitment.
THE COSTLINESS OF VEAL.
Patrick Cudahy, one of the group
of meat :packers more or less known
to fame ,advibes the cessation of the
slaughter of calves as one cf the menas
of sclvirg the beef problem. It is
said that a single year will add sur
prisingly to the weight of a calf and that
it is therefore, so far as the quantity
of meat is concerned , waste and ex
travagante to kill young calves.
Tariff free meats under the new tariff
will go far toward bringing about cheap
erbeef, but it would be well for all of the
Stafes, as seme have already done, to
considir the feasibility of laws intended
to prevent the wholesale slaughter of
A i lv n t if u 1 supply of beef of good
quality at reasonal le prices would
be a dcsiral le thing for every com
munity in the country. It is the most
whdesome and nourishing, and to
many the mott palatable of the meats
in general use.

In all the tumult and the shouting
over the tanrt, Wilson is keeping
a clear head. Neither those who want
to wipe out the tariff on every thing
it one fell swoop nor those who would
devise a tariff that would lay the
Democratic pa ty open to the accusa
tion made famous by Clevtland the
charge of "perfidy and dishonor"
can influence him. He is standing for
a tariff that is satisfactory neither to
the free traders nor the protectionists
and what it takes to stand for his
convictions he has got it.
The Bulletin of the Stat Board of
Health for April has an article on
"Preventive Medicine", copied from
the Youth's Companion. Prevention
has never received the attention that
it deserves, says the writer of the article,
Dr. M. J. Rosenau, Professor of Pre
ventive Medicine and Hygene at
Harvard University, and the reason
why cureofdise.se gets so much mire
praise and notice than prevention is
set fcrth in this paragraph:
"The results of cure are positive
the results of prevention seem negative.
Cure is real, active, evident; prevention
seems mysterious, quiet, uncertain.
For instance, the fact that the effects
of prevention arc not plain enough for
every one to see is one of the obstacles
against which vaccination has always
had to contend. If Jennr had discov
ered a cure for smallpox instead of a
preventive, and if that cure had been
half as effective as vaccination, every
civilized nation in the world would
do him homage."
Really prevention of sickness is a
matter of energy more than anything
else. The thrifty, hustling family
will usually be found to be the family
afflicted with the least sickness, that
is if the heads of the household are
progressive people who keep informed
as to the methods of prevention. Lazy,
shiftless families are the ones in which
disease makes its greatest inroads. A
stitch in time saves nine bat it will not
do it for the fellow who won't take the
trouble to take the stitch.

was placed under arrest yesterday
afternoon on a warrant charging him
with the larceny of several gallons of
paint, from the company with which
he was employed. Being unable to
give bond for his appearanc before
Mayor McCarthy this afternoon, Mid
gettc was placed in jail for safe keeping.
WHY USE L. & M. SEMI-MIXED
Because it's economical. Because it
is pure White Lead,. Zinc and Linsetd
Oil. Because it's the highest grade
quality paint that can be made. Be
cause when the user adds 3 quarts
of Oil to each gallon of the L. & M
Semi-Mixed Real Paiut, it makes
1-34 gallons of pure paint at a cost of
about $1.40 per gallon. This saves
the user about 60 cents a gallon on
all paint used. The L. & M is and
has always been the highest grade
and most perfect paint produced..

Some peopl; say they cannot help spending their
t money because there are so many temptations at
hand. The fact is, however, that the merchant
wot. Id prefer not to sell an article than to do so and
afterwards learn that it was unnecessarily purchased.
The progressive merchant likes to sell what the peo
ple really need. Do not think that you are confer
ring a favor when you buy unnecessarily'. If you
buy prudently, you wil have a fair proportion of
your income left at the end of each week or each
month. Surplus money should at once be deposited
