all were present; to add to her
troubles the young man who was to
play the leading part had announced
his intentions of leaving the town fox

left the hall?she lived so near sbe bad

but when the door closed after them
she burst into tears.
She would have to give it all up. she
could see that. The Red Cross needed
the money the play would raise for
it and the town needed something to

have to start something?she was
through. It was bard to give up. though
The leading part in the play Just suited
her and it would give her a chance
to shew the town folk tliat her aspirations
to go on the stage were not
' aroused Isolely by idle vanity. Ob why

up with the desire to do something
worth while In the world and give her
Just the little encouragement she needed.
She had written every play producer

LOWELL. Mass.. Jan. 10.?MaciUonettes,

Lowell, have formed the.first women's
union in the metal industry.

these women. Mrs. Shea is a machine
operator and like all lb" o'her members
of her union works at the United
States Cartridge Company's plant.
Her husband is a union man.
"We started this thing for two reasons."
Mrs. Shea explained.
"We are in direct competition with
I the men so we dc-cided that we would

Cerebrospinal meningitis Is a disease
affecting the covering of the
spinal cord.
It Is spread by germ-laden nose secretions;
by sneezing, coughing, speak
ing and even breathing. It Is very
apt to break oat when large groups
of persons are closely quartered together
for any period of time. That is
one explanation for the cases which
crop out now and then in the new
national army camps.
It is dne to a germ nadch the same as
the pneumonia germ in shape, size ^
and general mode of attack.
Many people breath? in the meningitis
germ and do not have the dis* '
ease. Some may become slightly sick
and think their ailments merely a
Although separate diseases, meningitis
and infantile paralysis are somewhat
similar. s
The former affects the membrane =severing
of the spinal cord, the latter ,
affects certain nerve cells in the cord it3elf.
The poisons of both germs,
however, affects all the cells of the >
cord in seme measure. Epidemics
of the disease have been
noted among the soldiers engaged in
trench warfare. The unsanitary conditions
under which- they of necessity
are forced to live are extremely favorable
for its spread from one to another
througa discharges from the nose.
It is spread by personal contact.
