Neglected Colds Threaten Life.
(Fromt' the ('hicgso ,Tribune.)
" 'Don't trifle with a cold.' is ,rood
advice for prudent men and women
It may be vital in Mee case of a child.
Proper food, good ventilation, and
dry, w'arnm clothing, are the proper
safeguards against colds. If they are
maintained thro thechanegable weather
of autumn, winter and spring, the
chances of a surprise from ordinary
colds will be slight. But the ordinary
light cold will become severe if neg
lected, and a well established ripe cold
is to the germs of diphtheria what
honey is to the bee. The greatest
menace to child life at this season of
the year is the neglected cold."
Whether it is a child or adult, the
cold slight or severe, the very best
treatment that can be adopted is to
give Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
It is safe and sure. The great popu
larity and immense sale of this pre
paration has been attained by its re
markable cures of this ailment. A
cold never results in pneumonia when
it is given. For sale by all druggists.

Exoressina a rnor:v.
Dr. Leopold Jaches of Cornell's ped
Ical school recently returned from
study of the use of the Rontgen rah
abroad. Pausing in an account of his
tour. Dr. Jaches said:
"Abroad. as here at home, the groat
public's knowledge of the rays con
tinues rather vague. Investigators re
ceive all manner of queer letters and
requests. Thus I heard in Berlin of a
man who wrote to a specialist:
"'Dear Sir: I have had a bullet In
my thorax for 11 years. I am too busy
to come to Berlin, but hope you will
come down here with your rays, ag my
case should be worth your while. If
you cannot come, send a packet of
rays, with instructions as to use, etc..
and I will see if I cannot manage to
work them myself.'
"The specialist replied:
''Dear Sir: I am sorry that my
engagements prevent my coming to see
you, and. that I am out of rays just
now. If you cannot come to Berlin
yourself, send me your thorax by ex
press and I will do the best I can
with it.' "
Man at His Best.
At what age is a man at his best
and most likely to achieve eis life
work? The Rev. F. B. Meyer once
put the age at 46. That seemed late
to a critic, but Dr. Leonard Guthrie
at the Royal College of Physicians
supported this statement. He quoted
Jastro's table dealing with specially
precocious people, which showed that
the average age at which great ar
tists did their first work was 13.8;
their first great work, 28; their great
est work, 46.7; and that the average
age at death was 60.1. For poets the
figures in the same order were 15.;.
27.8, 43.9 and 61.6; for philosophers.
17.6, 32.1, 47.7 and 66.3. Here is
comfort for those who think of mid
dle life as flat prose.
On a crowded street car recently
there were several stout men taking
up more room than they should. A
slip of a girl got on and the conductor
called out "move up, please." They re
luctantly moved about six inches and
the girl squeezed In. A few minutes
later a tremendously stout woman
laden with parcels entered and the
girl immediately offered her her seat,
which she accepted. The selish men
were lost to view ender 250 pounds
of stoutness and the girl chuckled to
