Series of Great Meetings
Word was received last Mon
day horn State President Rock
wood, of Portland, that the bi
ennial State Christian Endeavor
convention which was to have
been held in Eugene next week,
could not be held there on account
of so many cases of tvphoid fever.
He ask-d if it would be possible
ior Corvallis to hae it held here.
A m-etinir of the rx( ntive com
mittee of the Federation of Chris
tian E-idrax or was called for
Mondav nitiht at which time it
was d;cided to invite the con
vention to this city. While the
time is short in which to prepare
for so great a convention, it is
long enough to make it a great
sneet-ss if Endeavors and citizens
will all work to make thi- one of
the best conventions ever held in
the stjte. Much enthusiasm is
manifest and we have no tear
that Corvallis will, as usual,
move an hospitable host.
At the meet'ne Monday night

TYPHOID CAN BE' AVOIDED.
Water Supply Is Whole Secret of Stav-
ing Off Disease Blame the
' Health Board.
Typhoid is an unnecessary evil,
it is like bad government; civil in
difference is responsible for one as
for the other. As a matter of in
dividual warning there is little to
say, says McClure's Magazine.
Find out where your water comes
from, and, unless the community
guards the general health bv fur
nishing a pure drinking supply,
guard your own by boiling the wa
ter. Don't allow open vaults or
sewage accessible to flies to exist
near where you live. There's a
board of health in your town; if
it's worthless there's a law re
garding nuisances that isn't. Go to
your doctor promptly, "on suspi
cion," if you have any reason to
suppose that you have contracted
the disease. It is no ailment to
parley with. If you know of a case
that the attending physician has
reported privately but not to tho
health department, report it your
self. He won't like that, but it will
be good for him. You pay taxes to
get good water and to have the
laws enforced; one of the best pre
ventives against typhoid ' is the
"pernicious municipal activity'
, which gets what it pays for. After
all, the question as to whether
your city chooses to haye typhoid
fever at great expense like Cleve
land and Chicago, or to avoid it at
less expense, like Lorain and Law
rence, is largely a matter of in
telligent working citizenship.
