CAMPAIGN FOR WATER SYSTEM ON FARM HOMES IN MISSISSIPPI.

Announcement has been made that November 12 to 18 are the dates set for Water Works Week in Mississippi when the campaign for the installation of water works in all farm homes will be brought to a finish. Daniels Scoates, of the Mississippi A. & M. College, who is in charge of the campaign, has announced the partially completed program which will be carried out by the organizations of the State as follows: On Sunday, November 12, all ministers in Mississippi will be asked to co-operate by preaching sermons on the subject of sanitation and a pure water supply piped into the house as a means of health and comfort. All school teachers will be asked to assist the movement by devoting that week to teaching the children rural sanitation and hygiene and the important part the water supply plays in the health of the community. All demonstration agents and home economics agents will devote that week to holding water works meetings and helping the farmers of their counties install home water works. In addition the extension specialists and the agricultural workers of the State will lecture on water works and give demonstrations in all parts of the State. Scores of the water works meetings are being scheduled. State and county fairs in session before or during Water Works Week will put on special exhibits of the systems designed by the agricultural engineers of the college.
