Local and Otherwise
At the adjourned meeting of
council last Friday night the .con
irovcrsy over the width of Willis
boulevard was effectually settled
or some time to come so far as the
city council is concerned. Council

making a motion that council have
nothing more to do with it until
the property owners get together
and decide just what they want and
what they will agree to. The
motion carried without a dissenting

A Narrow Escape
Lynn Weiuier had a narrow es
cape from death last Friday. He
was about to pull himself to the
scat of a wagon that had just been
hitched to a team of horses .when
he slipped and fell underneath the
horses' feet. They became startled
and started to go, and the wheel
passed over the vouu lad's neck.
On account of' its position the
wheel lifted wim-whit from, the
floor as it passed over the boy, else
Ills neck would doubtteas have been
broken by the experience. The
wagon contained about 2300 pounds
of grain. The lad sustained some
severe bruises, but ao bones were
broken. He is a son of J. K.
Weimer. the rlravman. and the ac
cident happened la the feed stable.
Bitten by a Dog
John Murray, a Journal carrier
boy, was badly bitten by a dog
while making his rounds Sunday
morning. While delivering a paper
at the residence of Mrs. Damon ou
Charleston street, a vicious dog

lad and bit him badly upon the leg

Life's a hard battle anyway, no
matter how you take it, but those
who learn to fight it right, arc very
sure to make it. Two hundred
thousand every year, ought well to
make a fellow fear he too may fall
before the plague, which marches
on despite the Hague. If 'twere
the Japs upon, our land, slaying
with pucli a mighty Hand, we d rise
as one against the foe, and off the
map Nippon would go. Then why
so idly sit at ease white creeps upon
us foul disease, to pluck the fairest
from our land, when care can save
us from his hand. '
A tubercle bacillus is said to be
to.oooxt-too.ooo of an inch in
measurement, and compared with
an Oregon fir log, is certainly a
mere trine. But two is company,
three is a crowd, and a billion is a
whole lot more. And when these
nfinitcsimal garden thistles get .n
good lodgment in a lazy cavity of
an unused portion of the lung, they
can warm a man up with a P. M
fever and give him a sweat at
night. And the very best time to
cure the infection is before you get
Tight bauds about the waist,
which prevent a free inflation of the
tings at every u renin, were in
vented by the man who wanted to
ntrodtice the bacilli into. the human
economy just to sec how many peo
ple would die of the experiment.
No friend of mankind will aid in
the work of afflicting and constrict-
ng the lung cavity preparatory to
tubercle infection. Every son and
aughtcr of the land should be in
structed to be proud of n large full
chest,, at Its, base as 'well as its apex.
Uvcry school should have regular
drill in full, deep chest and abdomi
nal breathing. The use of the
diaphragm as an organ of inspira
tion should be made as plain as
proper mastication of food.
The mental faculties, the voice,
the blood, will be greatly benefitted,
and (he whole body will be net' in
tunc to laugh at germs. But at
the same time a quickened intelli
gence will take those precautions
agaiuit the geaerat foe which knowl
edge decrees arc essential. The
nubile drinking cud will be avoided
as a" pestiferous evil, the milk sup

kept in hand, and well, won't

by a couple of property owners on
