disease - typhoid Harvesters Attention!. Southwestern Washington astonishes the world by its wheat fields, yet few realize the price paid in death and sickness in harvesting this crop. For several years unusually large numbers of cases of typhoid fever in this part of the state have been of considerable concern to the State Board of Health. During the past year, at the request of the State Board of Health, the Department of Botany of the State College instituted an investigation of the amount, distribution and cause of the troublesome disease. The work was carried on by Miss Annetta Nicoll and a systematic survey was made of the couties of Walla Walla, Columbia and Whitman. While the Board fo Health reprots reveal a sufficient number of cases to cause alarm, it was found that a large number of cases had not been reported to the Board, and that the disease was very much more prevalent and serious than the reports indicated. For example, in 1913, twenty-five cases of typhoid were reported to the Board of Health of Walla Walla County, whereas, this survey revealed the fact that there actually occurred during this year in Walla Walla County, forty-nine cases of the disease.

of interest Sinning Against Your Home Town
Part 3 - A Town of a Thousand Managers. - The pair of shoes you can buy by mail cost just as much to make as shoe's bought in hour home town. The difference in price is found ONLY in difference in materials and workmanship." This is not an age of philanthropy. It's much easier to get nothing for something than something for nothing. People are recognizing the fact more and more. It can't make good unless the office of "City Managers.: has attracted much attention. It is hus duty to manage the business departments of his own - stop the leaks and put it on a paying basis. But you, in your small way, can do more for Marysville - your home town - than any city manager. You can stop more vital leaks than he can - the leaks that silently undermine the health of your home town, the leasks that are slowly forceing DOWN the real value of your property. The fasincation of the mail-order catalogue is akin to hypotism. It's a beautiful dream while you are asleep. Its multi-colored pages conceal the dreariness of shoddy goods beightened up for the time being by artist and word painter for temporary use. For which is given true coin of the realm one hundred percent efficent. Your home town needs that coin far worse than you need the alien goods. Your merchants and business men have enough confidence in the future of Marysville to invest heavily in good for your comfort. (comment from me: the rest of this article goes on in the same vain... and I enjoyed every word of it...)

Lawrenz, age 16, and Albert, age 11 are now living with their father at Seattle.
    Mr. Heider following construction work on the G. N. Ry. came to Marysville in 1902. Owing to her considerable experience in the mercantile business she conducted, in the absence of Mr. Heider, a similar business on Front street for a period of three years, after which she was at home until two years ago when Mr. Heider concluded to move to Seattle on account of his business making it more convenient there.
