100 years ago: Mosquitoes ordered out of city of Redding

A session of the members of the Redding Mosquito Abatement district was held at the city hall Tuesday evening. Considerable discussion was had relative to the best means of ridding the district of the pest. It was realized by those in attendance that the present influx of mosquitoes was the worst in years and heroic measures must be taken if the health of the community is to be preserved. While no definite plans were entered into for their extermination further than oiling their breeding places and draining water filled holes, the same as in former years, new ways of getting at the mosquitoes are in contemplation. It was apparent that cooperation must be had if the campaign is to be successful and that everyone must do his part. One of the ideas brought forth was that the schools, both high and grammar, should be brought into action and that much good in the way of educating the public to locate breeding places. Perhaps some way of giving prizes to those who worked most industriously might be given and a good healthy competition be aroused. —…

The challenge is buying gifts for your betrothed friends and relatives — or their kids — that they’ll appreciate but that won’t run up your credit cards or make you look like a total tightwad. Before we get to the gifts, let’s review the etiquette. The Emily Post Institute advises that if you are invited to a bridal shower and cannot attend, only your regrets to the hostess are required. Etiquette does not require you to send a gift. And if you are invited to more than one shower for the same bride, you should not feel obligated to attend more than one shower, even if you are in the wedding party. Not so for an invitation to the wedding. Even if you are unable to attend, good manners dictate sending a gift to the home of the bride several weeks before the big day. So, how can…
