By W. C. Cotton, M. D.
Pneumonia is one disease that
still defies medical science. No
specific for pneumonia has yet
been found. It is a germ disease
and there has Vet been found no
anti-toxin for the pneumococcus
except such as the body secretes
in its effort to kill the disease.
Sq the only thing that can be
done for the pneumonia patient is
to give him the best possible care
so that the b'bdy can do its very
best in the battle for" supremacy
over the poison. And the most
important thing that can be done
to conserve the strength of the
body for the fight is to give it air.

And Right is ruled by Might.
A shout "Out with the soldiers!"
Is thrown upon the air,
A bullet chokes the anger,
The thousands, helpless, stare,
A cordon flanks their houses,
A sentry rules by night,
A gun is ever leveled
To turn Right into Might.
The master of the factory
Looks calmly at the sight
And says, "I can do nothing"
He knows that Right is Might
The phrase "The Naked Truth"
came 'from an old-time 'fable
which represented Truth and
Falsehood as going bathing, and
how Falsehood by trickery deck
ed herself in Truth's clothing and
made off. Truth, rather than don
the garments of Falsehood, went
