BOARD OF HEALTH WILL DEFRAY COST OF MOVING THE RUBBISH City Divided Into Three Districts; Drawing of Refuge Begins on Thursday; Get Out Your Trash and Have it Taken Away; Councilmen Assen to Expenditure Warren is to be cleaned up right Beginning Thursday morning, every home in the city will be visited the last three days of this week, and the accumulated trash of the winter season removed, free of charge. litwill not cost the citizen a cent so long as he stays within the bounds of reason. The Board of Health will defray all expenses. The Board of Health has never before taken an active part in a cleanup campaign in this city. Some of its members say the reason has been that they never have been approached. Certain it is that this year they are stepping in with financial "help at just the moment that help is needed. When the idea was first broached to Secretary C. W. Schmehl he declared it struck him favorably and recommended to the committee that it interview President Greenlund. The suggestion struck Mr. Greenlund the same way. Only one difficulty existed.. The Board waMifrald Counvil might at some time question the expenditure, even though it came out of the Department's appropriation. Yesterday afternoon a majority of the Councilmen were seen and their signatures secured on a paper approving the expenditure. President Greenlund went to New York on business last night but before doing so he placed his o. k. on the plans. The committee is busy today making the final arrangements. It is now up to the citizens to do their part. First District. The Fir.st District comprises all that section of the city lying between the Conewango Creek and Union street. This section will be cleaned up Thursday, it is believed there will be less to do in it than in any other, because of the number of business places, and the shortest period of time is therefore needed for the residents in the section to make ready for the collectors. Second District. The Second District comprises the South Side and that part of the borough west of Union street. It will be cleaned up Friday. Third District. The job of taking care of the East Side has been reserved until Saturday when possibly an additional team will be available. The East Side is by far the largest of the three divisions of the city which have been made but an effort will be made to cover it thoroughly in the on'e day. Whnt Will Be Taken. Not every article of rubbish and refuse will be removed. There will be no decaying vegetable matter of any kind taken away.
