Our forest service has been telling
H the people of the west that the trees

This lesson Is being driven home with

unprecedented quantities reaches the
stricken area. The people are dying bv
the thousands and we are Just in the

grow worse as the winter progresses.

Giving of medicine in the old man

as doping and has ceased to be prac

is resorting more to serums and ant!
toxins and surgery Is performing won

stomachs repaired, the appendix elim
Inaled, the innei organs scraped But
the big progress Is In the serums and
in preventive measures.
Reviewing the achievements in ser

Ity He says
"Some lime ago a way was found to

developed, similar to vaccination
i against smallpox, to protect those who
are liable to It. The New York public
schools are planning to see that every
child belonging to the school system
lis immune from diphtheria. A few,
j drops of the prepared diphtheria toxin
! are injected into the arm of the sub
ject. If a red spot appears in two or
three days the person is not immun
from the disease. If such a spot UOSJ j
not appear, he Is immune Those who j
arc liable to diphtheria are then safe

'to be permanent, or at least to lasl B
number of years."
