REVIVAL IN WASHINGTON

We well rrfnnnbrr that itsring last
>«mavfr while a revival isettng was
hp-'ng held at the Wi|]ianu.M Metho
dist Church a daoce was advertised
o be held ia one of the local tifcsirn
*.i rehouses by a Washington dance
clob ard a nq«fst wa« m.i.ie by a Bum
ber of the citizens of the town to
cancel K. When the appointed ware
house lefuaed the use of its flohr.
a- other was rented and the dnnee was
.il\*rti«d for a certain hour. The
visitinf j teacher naked for a meeting
to be held at the warehouse door and
• prajrer was offend mad soags were
sung. but the dancers daactd on in tkt
usual way. The change for the better
canes this way.
The Rev. Mr. Ham is now holding
evangelistic services in Washiagton
and some of the Washington daaxn
desiring a dance were requested not to
hold it. Wheiegpon they most rever
ently aaid "*>ll, we will dump it
on WilliawiKow Thursday Right. They
appeared promptly amid the mad and
slash from all directioas, and the
earner being afar off from the Rev.
Ham they capered and • lanced in the
iiaul modern and attractive way.
This goes to show That the Ham
muting has had some good effect. It
has caused the people to respect a
revival meeting this year who did
oat last year.
The modern jazz has such a held
an the throats of the young gerteia
tioa that it appears something will
have to be dene. Probably if there
could be some understanding between
the daarerv here and those of Wash
ington so that while one revival is
being held here the local daw* lever*
could jounrey to Washington to hold
their dances and vice-versa for those
of Washington. Anything to save the
lespoct of neighbors.

50 PER CENT OF PEO
PLE INFECTED BY
TUBERCLE BAOLU
Dr. Mcßrayer*s Studies
Corroborated By
Health Bodies
Only about fifty per cent of the peo
ple ia Xerth Carolina and the Sooth
are infected with tubercle bacilli, ad
not ninety per cent as was formerly
riaiwd. say* Dr. L. R. Mcßrayer.
milting at length on this subject in
the December issue of the Bulletin of
the State Board of Health. Dr. Mc-
Brayer cane to this conclusion, the
Bulletin says, some time ago from a
number of studies made of the subject
ia several different communities of
the state by members of the ii>
torium staff. Since that time the U
(.ited States Public Health Service sad
the National Tuberculosis Association
have made bmi liar studies with more
or less similiar results. Both health
bodies agrae with Dr. Mcßrayer thai
"90 per cent is a too high rate of in
fection. The general conciliate* b
that there is lass infectious material
in the country than was fonaeny
Dr. Liaaly R. Williams of the Nat
tonal Tuberculosis Aasocintion, New
York gives it pa his opinion that this
grossly lowered rate of tabercule»i*
infection is due to the destruction of
the hnrillas at its source; ♦hat ia
while it ia ia the human body or as
soon as it leaves the body in the
sputum. Keeping down the infection
nt this point, destroying the sputum
by burning and shielding the mouth
and massive doses of the tubercle bacil
is considered by all the fighting agen
cies the most effective means of pre
venting tuberculosis.
Two other interacting conclusions
were found in the studies made by
the Sanatorium workers One was that
haw infection, that is, the house be
ing the medium of transmitting the
infection of tuberculosis from one per
son to another, is not probable. The
other was that the infection of tuber
culosis ia not transmitted by casual
exposure, but that prolonged exposure
and massive does of the tubercle bacil
li are required to produce sarious in
fection.  •

The Williamson tobacco warehouses

again on January Bth. The full corps
of bupers will be on hand and good
prices may be expected. All fanners
should brine their tobacco as early
as possible. It now pays to take care

men are paying fair prices for it.
l.ocal .Market Lead*
The Williamston market led all the
small markets in the east according
to the latest report made by the gov

paid. The price wa.? $23.66.
The Greenville report shows tHfc
price paid on that market at $26.10
or 2.46 more than the Williamstoa
averages. This difference, however,
be acounted for by the better grades
usually found on that market.
The houses here set the pace and
maintained it by hard pushing anil
the proprietors are to be commended
for the valuable services they have
rendered this section and town.
The market hie will last a few weeks
longer and every farmer having any
tobacco of any form is urged to mar

to be paid, from present indications
wil be equally as pood as those paid
before the Christmas holidays.
