THE HEALTH OF
SELMA AND VICNITY
ALONG THE NEUSE
In making enquiries about the
health of Selma and this vicnity, we
find that it is one of the most
healthy section in North Carolina.
Selma is situated four miles from
Smithfield, which borders on the
Neuse River, which passes through
the southern part of Smithfield.
The entire section along the
Neuse is healthy, from the begin
ning of this river all the way down
to New Bern. Years ago those
livinsr along this river suffered from
chills and fever. This is not so of
late years, as the health department
of North Carolina as well as the
health departments of each county

years back, andNhe disease of
chills and fevers., haV"eWabated to
such an extent that ' l&tdcm one
hears of a malignant case of f?fer,
and the chills of years ago, are 'now
seldom heard of. 1 ' -.'
The eradication 'of the mosquitoes
and other small and poisonous in
sects is partly' responsible for - the
absence now of days of these dis
eases. ' '
The low places where these in
sects breed are being filled in and
made solid- instead, of the mirky
mud and water of years ago. -
The sanitary conditions of the
towns along the ; Neuse are getting
better and bettor each year, and it
is predicted that the mosquitoes will
soon be a thing of the past, all of
which is due to the attention given
by the State department of health,
as well as the Bounties and towns
through this section, which the river
traverses. The health' of our State
will soon rank with that of. the best
healthy state in the Union.
them a site Tree.' Jve them theNtax-
. es free for five "or ten years. This
'will cause them to consider the mat
ter. If the man . who . owns the land
, finds out that a concern is thinking
. . of coming here, begins to study how
. much : more , he can get for the
. property! if the plant comes here
; and buys from lum, than he can get
: at present lime, he is a hindrance
to the progress, of the town.
If a. concern comes here that
. employes 150 people, that will add
at least 400 people . to our town.
These 400 people have got to eat
and wear clothing. If they are
working here- -we can count on 80
per cent of the wages being spent
m our town. The merchants and
business men of the town will reap
the benefit. If this is true, why
should not . every - one be a mera-
ber of the organization that causes
these concerns to come this way?
The money spent by the people who
fill positions in these plants will be
distributed among all the merchants
and each merchant should be will
ing to bear his 'part, of tho burden.
If he is not willing to do this, then
he is not a true citizen. If
you want to succeed at anything,
yu must put your whole mind and
thought into it. If you do this,
tinere. is.no such, thing as failure.
; iase ior instance the newspaper
business here in Selma: We have
been told by several people since
coming here that the newspaper
proposition in Selma had always
r been a failure; and too, they have
said that "you can't make it a suc
cess." Our reply in each case has
been, that if we did not get the co
operation of the business men, it
was impossible for us to succeed.
We are here, and we are giving
our time and money to the upbuild
ing of the "Johnstonian", in such a
way that it., will be second to no
small town community paper' i.
North Carolina. We ask the co
operation of the business . men to
this. end. If we can't get it we can't
,. reach the goal we are -striving for,
, and we can t help Selma grow and
prosper as it should.
fcvery business house in this
; town' should give us an ad., large or
mall, so we can meet our expenses.
If we can't get the proper support
we cant meet our obligations, and
the result win be your paper' will
just drag along with the manager
worried each week aboat the obliga
tions he has --.to meet;- but, as a
rule you can always hear some one

An Oklahoma editor tells of an
old Indian who came into his office
to pay for his ' paper. The editor
took the money; . then the Indian
wanted a receipt Mr. : .Indian, in

the editor wanted to know why he
was so persistent about wanting
receipt. The Indian said: "Me
