The path traversed by a heavy cur
rent of electricity in passing through
the body Is n' matter of great impor
tance. The most dangerous is from

the current passes near the heart
Hence It is a good rule In handling live
conductors to nse but one hand. An
important ruleto observe in rescuing a
person in contact with a live wire and
when It is impossible to cut off the cur
rent is to push the victim off with one
foot. Even should the current pass
from one foot to the other through the
resetter the resistance of the path is
considerable, and as the Current "does
not pass near the heart serious injury
Is not likely to result.

to a hay fever patient was to go away

T. 11. Thomas, who has the local
agency for llyomei. advises all xxho
are subject to hay fever to begin its
use txvo or three weeks before the
time of the annual appearance of this
disease and thus prevent- the attack.
If. however. Hvoinei is not used until
the sneezing and other disagreeable
symptoms have shoxvn themselves, it
is necessary to use the treatment
more frctpieiitly, at least half a doen
