For the benefit of public health and the improvement in the appearance of our town, it is deemed advisable for Postville to join in the National Cleanup Campaign, and the period from May 1 to May 10 is hereby designated for that purpose. All ashes, manure, tin cans, brush, rubbish, garbage, etc., of every description should be removed from the lots or streets and alleys adjacent' thereto, parkways cleaned and trees trimmed if necessary. Let us get together for a cleanup, then keep it up throughout the summer. Nothing adds more to the appearance of our town than clean, well- kept homes and properties. Town Ordinance No. 209 reads as follows in regard to keeping streets and alleys clean: It shall be unlawful to commit any of the following acts: 103. Scatter waste, or place paste, painting or writing on any sidewalk, 104. Leave any paper removed or coming from billboards on any street or sidewalk. 105. Throw, place or deposit or cause or permit to be thrown, placed or deposited, any glass, nails, or other sharp substances, ashes, straw, paper, sweepings, brush, weeds, spoiled fruit or vegetables or rubbish of any kind upon any sidewalk, street, alley, highway, gutter, drain or public ground. 106. Throw, place or deposit or cause or permit to be thrown, placed or deposited upon any street, alley or highway or into any gutter or drain, or upon any lot, park or ground, any paper, hay, straw, leaves, shavings, or other inflammable substances causing the same to be burned. Please consider this a direct notice to you for action as outlined and not merely intended for your neighbors. I am counting on the co-operation of you and every resident of Postville.

Christian Science Churches "Everlasting Punishment" will be the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in all Churches ot Christ, Scientist, on Sunday, May 3. The Golden Text is from Isaiah 4S.-22, "There Is no peace, saith the Lord, unto the wicked." The Lesson-Sermon comprises quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scrip tures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Ono of the Bible citations reads: "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth. that shall he also reap. For he that sow eth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting" (Galatians 6:7, S). Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook is the fol lowing: "Christian Science command? man to master the propensities,—to hold hatred in abeyance with kindness to conquer lust with chastity, reveng! with charity, and to overcome deceii with honesty. Choke these errors in their early stages, if you would no" cherish an army of conspirators against health, happiness cess" (p. 405).
