?IUS THE COUGH. CITES THE LUNGS.
(?, 1921, by McClure Newspaper Syndicat?.)
Jack walked slowly homeward, with
bowed head and knitted brow. Home !
Was It home to which he was going?
Could- that bare room in the lodging
house be called home? Once he had
had a home, cozy and cheerful, with a
little wife to make him happy, but
they had quarrelled. He hardly, re
membered what It was about In bit
ter anger they had separated. He had
come to the city and had lived his
lonely life and had heard no word from
Sally since he left
It came back to him In vivid recol
lection as he walked the street obliv
ious of surroundings. Perhaps it was
because it WP s just six years today
since he left her that he was thinking
of the past He had kept the date.
Sally was a pretty girl, with laugh
ing eyes, bright and witty-saucy some
times, changeable and high-spirited;
yet loving and tender, always beggiag
for pardon after each outbreak, arms
clinging about his neck.
Jack had loved this fiery young thing
whom he had won.
To drown his sorrow Jack had
plunged into business. He had made
money, but it brought bim no happi
ness. Once he had gone back, remorse
fully, longing for, Sally. The old town
looked as it did the morning he'went
The great elm tree spread Its friend
ly branches in front of the cottage,
as of yore (Sally loved that tree).
Lilacs were In bloom. The house had
a friendly air. He almost expected to
see Sally open the door and come out
with her old bright smile.
The door did-open, but lt was not
Sally's face that met him. ? man,
young and vigorous, paused on the
step as he saw Jack confronting him.
"Good day, my friend," he accosted.
"What can I do for you?"
Jack stared. "Is - does - where's
Sally?" he jerked.
. "Sally?" laughed the man. "Who's
"Sally-she lived here," stammered
"I don't know anyone by that name,"
returned the man. "No one by that
,name lives here."
Jack stared, bewildered, but soon re
covered himself. Of course the man
would not know her by her first name :
"Mrs. Mason," he explained. "Is she
"Oh, Mrs. Mason," the stranger an
swered. "She left two years ago. We
bought the house of her. She .needed
money, I believe; was in a tight place
and had to give it up to raise funds."
Jack gasped^ "Gone I Where did she
"Sorry I can't inform' you," an
swered the man. "She left town."
Jack turned In a daze and stumbled
into tlie street. All the sunshine had
gone out of life. Sally gone!
It was a drizzling storm, but what
did It matter to the man dragging him
self to his'lodgings? He reached, the
crossing. Vehicles obstructed the pas
sage, and he waited.
Many others waited, too. Among
them was a little child, who f enred Jto
cross. She looked timidly at the heavy
teams and the slush in the street, then
carefully scanned the faces of those
about her. With a look of relief and
a smile ou her baby faee, she crowded
her way to Jack's side} placing her
tiny hand in his.
"Please, sir, take me across," she
lisped, her blue eyes looking into his
with a child's confidence. '
The touch of the little hand thrilled
him. He answered, took her In his
arms, and carried her across the street
"Thank you, slr," she beamed, as he
landed her on the sidewalk. '
"Tell me where you live and I will
take you home," he said, a new Inter
est awakening in his heart
She led him down a side street, chat
ting all the way.
"Have you a baby girl?" she asked.
"My mamma's got me, but she cries
all the time, and when I say ray pray
ers I pray for daddy to come home."
She stopped before a tenement
"Here it Is," she cried, as she sprang
Into her mother's arms.
"Roxy, It's so late!" cried the wom
an. "1 was afraid you were lost"
She torned to thank the stranger for
bringing her child home, but started
with a cry.
. Jack started, too. "Sally !" * he
"Jacki" she cried, drawing away.
"To think that -I should find you
thus. Iou have suffered."
"Let that pass. Why have you
"The baby brought me-this child
v.ho is she?"
".She's ours, Jack-our baby. She
was born six months after you went
"Our baby, and 1 never knew!"
"How could you? I came to the city
to get work-Jack, I've missed you
"Sally, Tve wanted you more than 1
can tell-1 want you now. Can't we
begin again? I love you. Can you for
give the past?"
"Forgive you?" she moaned. "It was
my fault Can you forgive me? Oh,
Jack, I've longed for you so !"
"Forgive you, dearest? 1 have noth
ing to forgive. We did not understand,
that waB all. We did not know how
to take our love. It needed these year*
of sorrow to teach us. We will begin
They vere looking into each other's
ayes, where the lovelight shone.
"Kiss me, Jack," sae murmured.

.TREATING HOGS FOR CHOLERA
Losses Are Inevitable Un Jesu Early
Action ls Taken and Proper
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Unless early action is taken to ding
nose the cases and apply proper treat
ment , when disease appears In your
swine herds, losses are inevitable. The
chances are many that'the trouble is
cholera, and under such circumstances
delay is dangerous, for when that dis
ease has spread and progressed in the
herd the loss of many hogs may be
Early attention In an outbreak of
hog cholera is essential for the suc
cessful treatment of the herd. It has
been told repeatedly that anti-ho^-chol
era serum is not a cure; Its use is
primarily Intended as a preventive
agent against cholera, and as such lt
ls universally recognized as the only
reliable treatment While the serum
seemingly bas had some favorable ef
fect when administered to sick hogs
In the very early stage of the disease,
swine owners should not depend upxra
the product to save any number of
animals after they have developed
visible symptoms of hog cholera.
In Farmers' Bulletin 834 (revised)
attention is called to the fact that the
serum Is most efficacious when admin
istered as a preventive. "While the
serum Is- regarded as most efficacious
when administered as a preventive,"
the bulletin points out, "it seems to
have some curative value, provided it
is administered when hogs are In the
very early stages of the disease. But
very little benefit can be expected
from the treatment of hogs that are
"Serum should be used with the un
derstanding that It is a preventive
rather than a curative agent" "It has
been stated that serum alone has some
value in treating sick hogs. This is
true within a certain limitation. Ordi
narily it Is efficacious only in the very
early stage of tho disease, before the
hogs show visible signs of sickness."
In a bulletin issued recently by Dr.
R. G. Reed, chief of animal industry,
Cleaning Up the Hoghouse.
Maryland state board of agriculture,
appears the following: "An analysis
of the data obtained from sick herds,
vaccinated in Maryland durlug 1919,
shows that over one-fifth of the swine
had died or were too sick to treat be
fore the herds were Immunized." In
. formation from other states where
control work has. recently been con
ducted points to a similar luck of
prompt attention in reporting out
breaks of hog cholera. Much of the
criticism and unfavorable comment
against anti-hog-cholera serum are due
to tlie fact that farmers delay the use
of the product for too long a period
after cholera has reached the herd.
When many of the animals show
symptoms of the disease and the tem?
perature reveals a high fever, it is
not reasonable to suppose that serum
will do much toward limiting losses.
Therefore, the warning Is again given
to treat the animals at the very first
sign of cholera In the herd.
Or better still, if there are reasons
to suspect that the hogs have been or
are exposed to infection, they should
be Immunized before they have fallen
victims. In sections where there are
no known outbreaks of cholera there
does not seem to be any* need for the
use of an expensive treatment, but
when the disease makes its appearance
In the vicinity no time should be lost
In having all susceptible hogs gl?en
the serum treatment.
Reports indicate that farmers and
swine owners ?re remiss in guarding
against, the introduction of infection,
and are generally inclined to expect
too much of anti-hog-cholera serum as
a curative agent.
