SAYS COLD WEATHER
BRINCS RETURN OF
P'ublic Must be Careful to Avoid a,
Second Epidemnic. -Easier to Pre

"Encouraging reports of the fewer
cases of influen'za in this vicinity
should not allow us to relax our' vigi
lance or to become careless in the be
lief that the danger is over," says a
wecll known authority. With the com
ing of cold .weather there is apt to 'be
a return of this frightful epidemic and
its seriousness will depend on the ex
tent of the precautions taken by the
public to prevent infections.
'When the altr is full of influenza
rms, you may be constantly breath

Bunt their danger may be avoided and
you may make yourselC practically im
mune to infection if 'you destroy the
germ before it actually begins swork
in your blood.
During the recent serious epidemic
wvhich hit JAurens so htard, most sue
cessful results wvero obtainedl by many
through the simple breathing into the
nose, throat and lungs of the medica
ted air of oil of Ilyomol. Probably no
better, safer' or more sensible precau
tion against influenza, Grippe, Coughs
Colds, -Bronchtitis or Catarrh of the

thtan to go ntow to the nearest drug
store and get a complete Hlyomel out
fIt consistin'g of a bottle of the pure
Oil of Hlyomel and a little vest pocket
hard rubber inhaling device into which
a few drops of the bil are poured.
Carry this Inhaler with you during
the (lay and each half- hour or so put
it in your mouth and draw deep breaths
of its pure healing germicidal air in
to the passages of your nose, throat
and lungs to destroy any gerins that
may have found lodgment therfi. This
Almnple precaution may save you a sori
ouis illness and the loss of several
wveeks wvork. It is pleasant to use and
not at all expensive as the inbaler will
last a lifetime and further supplies of
the Oil of Hiyomei cqan be had at any
di'ug store for a few cents..
.Hundreds of people in this vicinity
used Hlyomol in this way dfiring the
recent crisis and avoided danger. They
