We understand they have had
some thrilling adventures. Next
week we hope "to have a full account

Sometimes we are criticized for
delaying the publishing of an article
There are many reasons for this
delay; Lack of spsce, no signature
and sometimes merely a camouflag_

that are nearly impossible to even

Once mare the Betterment has |
endeavored to clean wp tht 'town.
While tins association is glad to

be necessary. Tfce town .should be
kept clean, especially in .the summer
There are too many bahlss in Bre
vard to allow filth to accumulate
and flies to (breed.
' Burn everthing which can be bur
ned. All refuse must be dumped
somewhere, until w? can 2tf|ord to
have an incinerator. It isn't as
harmful when out in the o^en, far
frofh- human habitation, but it is
.still dangeroac. *
The town authorities are willing
to do their part. Phone the May?r
or the street superintendent on
Wednesday and Saturday and a
truck will call for trash and haul it
away at no expense to you. This is
not a new service and is not for
summer alone. If your neighbor
doesn't know of this service tell her.
