This Is "Clean Up and Paint Up" . week. Take an account of stock around your place, whether you own or rent. Look over your house, outside as well as Inside; look at the fence In back as well as In front; look over the chicken-house as well as your own hOue. Mark the spots that need repair, and then go to work. Mayor Davie has called upon all good citizens to see that the laws of the health department are put Into effect While this is being done add Just a Htt!e touch of extra effort and a wonderful result will be achieved. These are SayTif extra effort The nation Is becoming used to extra effort. And a trifle of extra effort in touching up that broken fence or tacking on that missing .shingle or whitewashing the chlcken-roop will produce results of which the entire community will be proud. House-cleaning is good in the springtime, and every housewife knows what It means to thoroughly sweep and air the home after tho closeness of the winter. But cleaning up the whole place Is better and what mother does Indoors, father can do outdoors with Just as much profit When you cut the lawn and prune up the trees and vines go Just one step farther and fix up that fence and put a little paint on the house. Do for your own habitation what nature does for the whole world in the spring time. This is not alone an aesthetic move. It is a move for health, and we must do everything for health in these days. To "swat the fly" Is good enough, hut it is better t put that fly out of the way before his brood has 'gun to hatch, and there is nothing like cleaning up and painting up to do that very work. Clean up the places that breed the fly. j Paint up the spots that harbor the I larva. I There is no cure that equals prevention, and there is nothing that helps pre- j vent the arrival of the f'.y as much as a little paint, or whitewash or kalso-1 mine. . i The systematic cleaning up and point- j Ing up of a neighborhood may save the j spread of disease, and a few bits' worth j of paint and an .lour of spare time may' gave a doctor's bill and suffering. -This is the week to .begin. 'The weather is Just right, and if the householder is going to get ahead of those broods pfy flies this year he will have to begin right now. Look over your place. Get out the ngint ivit an A rwlnt tifnuK nrtA fiv nil and paint up the little spots that you ! will find. I And while you are doing It for your I own sake remember that you are per- ' forming a civic duty, for you should put your place in good shape for the effect RULES FOR "CLEAN-UP PAINT-UP WEEK" 1 Do not allow rubbish to accumulate. 2 Do not mar or deface sidewalks, fences, buildings or public property. 3 Do not allow piles of ashes or trash to remain in back yards. 4 Do not throtc anything on the sidewalks,or streets. 5 Keep garbage cans covered up closely and destroy breeding places of germs, flics, etc. 6 Clean up yards, plant grass and flower seed, encourage love of nature. 7 Paint fences, sheds and all surfaces inside and outside which are worn and shabby. 8 Clean up your home and spread the Clean-up and Paint-up spirit among your neighbors.

Since last year's ist'ue many changes have taken place and the merchants represented on these pages have realized the greatly increased business coming with postwar prosperity. Oakland has swung into new stride. Iet everybody fall in line! An establiabed paint manufacturing house of national reputation has rhosen a factory site in this city. A number of locai paint dealers have changed their agencies and are announcing new lines of goods. - An Oakland concern offers a new aid to those of the paperhanging trade a dry paste. An active campaign is on for electrical appliances and labor-saving devices, and hardware dealers are offering all the up-to-date conveniences for household use. The new spirit of Oakland is evident not only in the special instances mentioned above, but, generally speaking, in every line of business activity there is a big forward movement which a is u res to every merchant a bnmper year! that It will have upon the city at large. Oakland Is a city of homes and It nhould be made a city of well-kept homes. You will find lots of people why will advlpe you what to do and how to do it. Ttiere Is no need of employing expensive help to do the work, po it yourself. Responsible merchants will tell vou what to do and what to .use. It will cost little and It will yield much. Yon have teen called upon by Officials to do this "bit" toward heJping ttic health and the appearance of the community. Io it willlnRly. PAINTING UP. On of tho odors of spring Is that of fre.h paint. Its reek pervades Oakland. To some persons It is an odor of no appealing: fragrance, but the scent carries with it the whiff of progrens. The spring Clean Up nd I'aint Up campaign is in full swing. Anenthusiastlr dealer In paint and allied things ts ouoted in the news columns as saying that "ry"teople of Oakland seem to be on a Vflrular spree of painting and dec-craiing." A chronicle of the news says that "never bufpre has so much paint-ini? been In process at one time as at tho present, and painters as well as dealers In painting materials and.FUp-"pllea say that a more general effort Is being made rhls spring o make the national capital a spotless town than ever before." Wen have not needed to be told that a freeh dresB of paint may make an old licuee look new and that u new house with a worn and shabby coat of pnmt maylo(ili old. rt Is also true th.it the rroper application of paint may keep a new houne from getting old. All men know this, but not all men give practical Application to the knowledge. It is to be noted that when a man beccmes enough Interested In a house to treat It to a good painting his interest will probably extend to Mralghtonlng up the porch,' stopping the leaks In the roof, pointing up the chimneys, renewing worn-out shutters, doors and windows, putting In a new board where the flooring has become too old, and perhaps he may give joy to his wife by ordering in the paperhanger to help restore the house to its former state of coz'.nesa and comfort. With these germs of household bet-ferment stirring within him. he will also probably get buey with the garden. Ragged grass will be cropped and the bare places in the lawn will turn rreen. Flowers will begin to bloom and the front fence and gate wll be mended. Th home will be happier and more valuable. Neighbors will become Infected with tho suKgestlon and will go to work. The whole neighborhood will take on an aspect of thrift and prosperity. Steel Is Active in Wall Street Trading NEW YORK, March 22.
