A section of the ordinances deals

poses. It gives the officer the au
thority to condemn the well and to
require the owner, agent, lessee or
occupant of the premises forthwith
to close same, and to post notice ot
warning to the public that the well
is condemned and that to drink the
water from the said well or spring

Another division of the ordinances
provides the manner in which garbage

Mayor Eaton reported to the board
that some objection had been made
to the ordinance eliminating produce

OLD NICK WILLIAMS
WHISKEY CO. CASE
STILL ON DOCKET
District Attorney V. C. Hammer
was in the city Thursday afternoon
conferring with locaf counsel inter
ested in the original litigation in the
case of the United States vs. the Old
Nick Williams Whisky Company, of
Yadkin county. It was a libel case
in which civil action was taken
against property of the company ag
gregating $17,000. The property was
attached by the Federal government
in 1!)03, but the proceedings were not
officially started until 1904. When
the property was attached a surety
company bonded the defendant cor
poration to the government, and the
case was docketed in regular order.
It has remained on the Federal court
docket since, but during the trial of
the criminal issues against the com
pany started at the same time, and
which terminated only a year or two
ago, the civil action was lost sight
Since coming Into the office of dis
trict attorney to succeed Attorney A.
E. Holton, Mr. Hammer has been
making an effort to clean up some
of the cases which have been
dormant, and he has now taken up
this case for final disposition. It
has been placed on the docket for
the next term of Federal court at
Greensboro in regular order.
Some who have discussed the caso
believe that the court will refuse to
hear a claim for judgment against the
estate ot Mr. N. Glenn Williams for
the reason that it was originally an
action against the company vjhich
was controlled by him, and that the
company is not now in existence. It
is suggested that the court will not
sign a judgment against the company
anyway undess the defendant can ap
pear in court in his own behalf, and
the non-existence of the company at
this time stays any further prosecu
tion on the part of the District Attor
ney. Just what the outcome will be
is not suggested.
Attorneys C. B. Watson and J. E.
Alexander were the counsel for the
defendant company in the original

At each appointment, on the first named date, I will make atalk to the citizens on Sanitation and Preventive Medi
cine, with special reference to Typhoid Fever and Hookworm disease. Come out and bring your family to the nearest
Dispensary and hear these important matters discussed. Anti-Typhoid immunization has eradicated Typhoid Fever
from the U. S. Army and Navy, and saved the armies of Europe from this dangerous and deadly disease. The results
are no less encouraging in civic practice, as has been fully demonstrated in our own State and County. Immunity lasts
from three to four years, perhaps longer.
As Three Treatments ArqNecessary, Do Not Fail to Meet Me
On the First Date warned For Your Dispensary.
The State furnishes the vaccine and the county the services, free of charge. All physicians are cordially invited to
attend the Dispensaries.
E. F. STRICKLAND, M. D.
Forsyth County Health Officer
. Dr. E.F. Strickland started Monday
on his summer campaign against ty
phoid fevef, and, in connection with
the dispensaries for the administration
of typhoid vaccine, he, will make an
Investigation for hookworm. lie will
have associated with him Dr. Norburn,
of Ashevjlle, who will conduct the
hookworm Investigation. This Is one
of the most important programs of
the year and will do much to improve,
health conditions in the county. While
advocating typhoid vaccination for im
munity from that disease, and admin
istering the vaccine. Dr. Strickland
will deliver addresses on sanitation in
an effort to remedy conditions through
out the county that promote disease.
Each year it is stated that about
15,1)00 North Carolinians suffer with
typhoid, and nearly ten per cent of
them die. As an economic measure it
has been figured that each person suf
fering from typhoid loses from one to
two months' time, and pays at least
1100 physicians' and drug bills. This
is the expense of the nine-tenths of
those who get well, but for the 1,000
or more that die coffins must be
bought and funeral expenses de
frayed. Typhoid can be prevented, .and this
Is what Dr. Strickland will instruct
those who attend the free dispensaries
about. Vaccination against it, proper
disposal of human excrement and
screening the house against files have
stamped it out of the U. S. army, and
by these methods it is hoped to stamp
it out of Forsyth county. On thous
eund persons have already been vac
cii.ated in Forsyth during the past year
or two, and not a case has developed
among those who took the treatment.
The treatment is free to all who
desire to take it. In another column
is a list of the dispensaries and the
dates upon which they are to be
opened, and the people of the county
are urged to attend the one most con
enient. It is essential that they at
tend the first day and the two succeed
ing days for the same dispensary, as
three treatments are necessary to ren
der a person immune. A pcrsoa tak
ing the treatment is safe for three
years. ' '
