tion. Its consequences are known to all phy

Thomas W. Lawson was once vis

Lawson needed a temporary secretary,

later in the day, the young woman

chiefly remarkable for their hideous
orthography. He called the girl's at

Cramp in the Legs.'
People who are subject to cramp
in the legs should always be provid
ed with a good strong piece of cord,
especially in their bed rooms. When
the cramp comes on take the cord.
Wind it around the leg over the place
where he is cramped, take an end in
each hand and give it a sharp pull,
one that will hurt a little, and the
cramp will cease instantly. People
much subject to cramp in bed have
found great relief from wearing on
each leg a garter of wide tape which
has several thin slices of thin cork
stitched on it.
