THE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE. NORTH PLATTE, NEBRASKA.
STATE WILL UNDERTAKE INVES
TIGATION OF SANITATION.
GOVERNOR ASKS FOR HELP
Next Legislature Will be Provided
With Data to Enact Suitable
Laws in the Matter.
Lincoln. Stute-wido Investigation
of sanitary demands Is going to be
undertaken on a thorough scale with
in the next throo months. Governor
Morehcad haB ordered the board of
secretaries of the state board of
health to initiate- the movement so
that the next set of legislators will
have nil the facts and figures before
them neco3sary to enact sultablo
lawj. in a statement Issued ho asks
the- co-operation of the people and
especially the physicians of tho state.
1113 statement follows: "While wo
have, and purpose to do more for the
brute creation, we must not overlook
the human family, and the health
and welfare of human society. With
tho increase of population, it becomes
more and more impressive that wo
establish and maintain proper sani
tary regulations. The medical frater
nity has shown a commendable spirit
of enterprise, but it requires concen
trated action in order jo arrive at
tho proper legislation. In order that
all possible data may be available for
the use of tho legislature, when It
convenes In January, and that the
members may bo apprised of the best
scientific method for preventing dis
ease, I am calling on the board of
secretaries of the state board of
health to make Investigation and pre
pare a report for the assistance of
tho legislature, and I want to call
upon all members of tho medical pro
fession and other public spirited citi
zens who have information that may
be of service, to co-operate with the
board of secretaries."
Seed Corn Selection Week. -In
view of the fact that our success
fuL farmers and experiment stations
And that early selection of seed corn
Is advisable. It seems, In a matter of
such great economic Importance, that
a time should be set aside for Its
The following reasons for early se
lection are apparent:
1. Early selected seed is less lia
ble to bo injured by freezing.
2. Seed selected in tho field en
ables the farmer to obtain ears from
plants of tho proper type and from
plants growing under normal condi
tions. 3. From various reports received,
the present crop has ripened early,
and seed may bo safely selected at the
end of tho month. It appears essen
tial, however, that such corn once se
lected should be stored Immediately
in as dry a place as possible.
A special reason why our farmers
should select their own seed will ap
pear from data of the Nebraska Ex
periment Station showing that native
seed produced G.2 bushels more per
acre than excellent seed brought In
from othnr districts.
With these facts in mind, I desig
nate the week beginning September
28 as Seed Corn Selection Week and
urge its general observance as tho
proper time for this Important task.
Given under my hand and tho
great seal of the State of Nebraska,
