In order to have typhoid fever you
most swallow the germs, they must
go down your throat, you cannot
catch this disease any other way.
Then how do you get them into
our mouths? We get them in onr
food, on our fingers and from flies.
Then how do they get in our food
and on our fingers and where do
the flies get them from?
When the germs are swallowed
they pass on through the stomache
into the intestines where they at¬
tack little glands which they make
sore, this is the first week of the
fever. The second w'eek these
glands swell up and get hard and
during the third and fourth weeks
of the fever these glauds slough out
leaving ulcers from which bemor

From Copper City Advance.
Frank M White, of near Gallo¬
way, Ga,, was in town Wednes¬
day. Galloway is a suberb of
McCaysville, and Mr. W 7 hite re¬
sides on his farm, which is two
miles distant from Copperhill.
Mr. White is one of the best far¬
mers in Fannin county and,
smoke or no smoke, he never
fails to raise good crops of wheat,
oats, rye and all kinds of fruits
and vegetables when the season
is good, Mr. White is of the
opinion that every farmer in
Fannin County can raise as good
crops as he produces if they will
improve their land, prepare it
well before planting and then
it properly, Mr. White distrib¬
uted samples of his wheat crop
in Copperhill Wednesday and
few heads of the smooth and
bearded varieties fell into the
hands of the editor. The
average'six inches in length and
contain three plump grains to
the mesh. If the samples are a
fair average of Mr, White’s
his yield per acre will surpass
any crop we have seen this year
in the wheat growing section be¬
