Preventive Medicine teaches peo
ple how to keep well. Communcia
ble diseases like typhoid, diphtheria,
snvall-pox, etc., are caused by germs.
These germs have certain habits of
life, very much as a dog, cat, or rat
has certain habits. If the people
are familiar with the habits of these
disease producing germs, it is possi
ble for them, thru their knowledge
of the habits of these germs, to pre
vent the spread of these germs and
thereby prevent disease. From
time to time short articles giving
the habits of these germs will ap
pear in this paper, under the title
of Preventive Medicine. .
.The expense of. these diseases
warrants every person and every
community in practicing preventive
measures. Germ diseases alone cost
the United States annually $3,500,
000,000. At least fifty per cent of
this amount could be saved if the
people would practice Preventive

from a bed of sickness, when his
life was despaired of and it seemed
he must have been restored for a
life of usefulness, but God's ways

haps to comfort them in this dark
hour, by the mernory of those hap
py days of returning health, so fill

ture. When he realized that he
was called upon to lay down his
young life he was brave and calm,
imparting to his sorrowing loved
ones some of his own courage.
Cheering the "little brother" and
loved companions of boyhood, com
forting his mother as with his hand
in hers he repeated the old familiar
prayers of the church, and whisper
ing at the last: "I will lift up mine
eyes unto the hills Irom whence
cometh my help."
