I gO.au tbut explains it Detroit Free Press THINGS OBSfRVFU AND NOTED. Tha establishment of a boird of health for this borough Is a itep in tha right direetlon and oie it la to be i.ot,d will b carried into ffet as epaedily aa possible. If there is a sam lilanca of trnth in the manv storiae that are in circulation, wa as a com mo'iity are surrounded on all aldts with contageons diseases fatal in their results The establishment of euoli boards in tbis common wealth Is of such recent origin that few of the many cities and boroughs have as yet become entirely used or reconciled to thia so called innovation. The que tion ns to tbe authority or mission of euch boardt is, it it fair to lay, ques tioned by not a few. For the benefit of these skeptics it is DOCOMftfy to state that tbe local board derives it author ity from the state by the act of aeaem bly of May II, 1698, an extract of which appeared beetofofl in these minimis. The DOWd ranks na a dt fendant only for the appointment of ita members, it being a on-ordlnate branob with the town council, ou whieb body it relies for the approval and appropriation re quired to discharge tbe duties incumbent upon it as a body. While the act of assembly on tha ono baud defines the authority of the locnl board, on the other band it sots forth tbe duties and responsibilities which may be comprised in tbe few worda: "The preservation of tbt pnblio health." The Importance of this question can not be bettor illustrated by tbe mere fact that if tbe responsibility be al ready great when the health of an in dividual only it concerned, bow Infi nitely greater must it become when tbe autboritiet hare to deal with the health condition of the whole ooin mnnlty. To fulfill this mission, in view of the prevailing prejudice arrayed againat it, is a problem of no mean order. That there will be more or less prejudice against the establishing of such board goea witnout sayinr, becauto there n-vsr was a time when a movement in angurated for the betterment of the community was advanced than tome nltra-contervative individual in the exuberance of hit economit nature oriea ont, "What' the use of a hoard of nealth: Look at the expenasl" and mny aimilar rtmtrks I: is ob vious that it will require mire than the persuasive powert of the board itself to overcome thit prejulice aud convert its opponent! into disciples To do this tbt boird will have to rely largely upon the assistance of outside source, and, to the writer a way or thinking, it would ba extremely dim onlt to think of three more powerful allies than the school, the melical pro fttsioo, and, last but not ltatt, tbe preas. The former iu importance it paramount to either of the latter, be c.inae the instruction gained on this subject will fatniliariz) the ris ing generations with the public needs in sanitary resptct to such an extent that they will grow np well prtparsd to eoraprehen 1 the im portance of tanitary tnnervition. Iu the telection of tha men who nre to be appointed preti lent of Council John Mangan sr.onld bear in mini tint the dntiet which will develop upon them will require a Urge amount of iinnur tiality, fearlsemeaa and hack bone. The dnties are mueh harder to perform in a town of Pitti ton's tiz than in larger citis?, where offieials art not to apt to la tnrown in social or personal contact with private partial , where thtantbor ity of the office covers the little ihort cotnings of its incumbent, or where, to o a common txpreeaion, tha nftiue mka the man, for by reason of his familiarity with every holy it it mum mora difficult for an official toexeruin his authority and inspire his fallow citizens with the proper reeptct for hia office, it ia a well known fact that pertonal oontiderstions, lies of friendship, social connections, hnsinei' relations, all tend to hamper blm in the enforoemsnt of the law and unitary rules governing the borough He laoks, to to tpeak, the Incnbns of antbority and offl'iial Independenoe which is to be found in tbeelty official To avoid sunh Influenoes bolng brought Into play can only lie remedied by the appointment of men who are tohserv int to no corporation, olique or class. Will thia bo done? tea It. was highly amusing at the council meeting last Monday evening to listen to OOfloifl members protesting strauu ODlly that they did not care in the least whether the gen rsl public knew how they voted on certain oflieee, to lie filled, while it tbe lame time these bhiiix iriimbars were using their hast endeav ors to luive their votes taken by a secret ballot. tea Since the question hai arlann, "Are councilman entitled to pty'f" it would be well for the present boird to asoer tain where they are at. One of the hoard made hi position tlear at the Monday night suasion by stating to tne board they eould conildtr hia resign a Hon immediately if there was no salary attached to it In view of Councilman llnunelly's position on the QUetllOQ, be being a lawyer, and the declaration of the law whinh sayt ooUnrilmnti shall serve without pay, it nunalns to be seun if the objecting member will be us good as hia word, or whether his dec luratlon il another case of "hedging, " Aro the nfllcei of borough auditor and borough tecretary IneompatibleT .1 dm K. Dempsey, who was recently elected borough auditor, and inbte quently borough secretary, ia at the present time filling both positions. As tbe auditing of theteerttary'a aeoountt it a part of tbe auditors work many peraont oontend that, legally, they are not. In support of their argument they claim Mr, Derapaey oannot audit his own accounts because to do to would ratablitb a preoedeot which would be inimical to tbeintereati ot the borough a contention that it foil of aound ttnee and good law.

Had they never had it they would never have become great. They have had education. Your boy cannot possibly be anything, become any thing, without knowing. The more he knows the bet ter he'll be. Knowledge is power, riches, fame. You want to do your duty by him? Give him a chance. Teach him or let him teach himself Give him education. "Without books God is silent, justice dormant, natural science at a stand, philosophy lame, letters dumb, and all things involved in Cimmerian darkness." If you give him books he w.ll soon chose for himself the subject in which he is most interested, which he can most easily study. This study is the one he is moBt fitted to pursue, the one in which he will make the most success. It is natural that it should be bo. You think: "Books, ah yes, how many hundreds of dol lars will I have to spendbefore he discovers what he is best fitted for?" True, but there's another way.
