Common Colds Highly Catching—Im portance of Suitable Clothing —Could Sa vo UKMWS Uvea. Washington. D. C.—With the subsid ence of the epidemic of influenza the attention of health officers Is directed to pneumonia, bronchitis and other diseases of the respiratory system which regularly cause a large number of deaths, .especially during the whiter season. According to Rupert Blue, Surgeon General of the United States Public Health Service, these diseases will be especially prevalent this win ter unless the people are particularly careful to obey health Instructions. "The present epidemic," Anld Sur geon General Blue, "baa taught by bit ter experlénce bow readily a condition beginning apparently as s slight cold may go on to pneumonia and death. Although the worst of the epidemic Is over, there will continue to be a large number of scattered cases, many of them mild and unrecognized, which will be danger spots to be guarded against." The Surgeon General Hkeped the present situation to that after a great fire, saying, "No fire chief who understands his business stops playing the hose on the charred debris as soon aa the flames and visible fire have dis appeared. On the contrary, he con tinues the water for hours and ^even days, for he knows that there Is dan ger of the fire rekindling from smol dering embers." "Then you fear another, outbreak of Influenza?" he was asked. "Not neces sarily another large epidemic," said the Surgeon General, "but unless the people learn to realize the seriousness of the danger they win be compelled to pay a heavy death toll from pneumo nia and other respiratory diseases. Common Colds Highly Catching. "It Is encouraging to observe that people are beginning to learn that or dinary coughs and colds are highly catching and are spread from person to person by means of droplets of germ laden mucus. Such droplets are sprayeg Into the air when careless or Ignorant people cough or sneeze with out covering their mouth and nose: It is also good to know that people have learned something about the value of fresh air. In summer, when people are largely out of doors, the respira tory diseases (coughs, colds, pneumo nia, etc.) are infrequent; In the fall, as |>eople begin to remain Indoors, the respiratory diseases Increase; In the winter, when people are prone to stay in badly ventilated, overheated rooms, the. respiratory diseases become very prevalent Suitable Clothing Important . "Still another factor in the produc tion of colds,- pneumonia and other re spiratory diseases Is carelessness or Ig norance of the people regarding suit able clothing during the seasons when the weather suddenly changes, sitting In warm rooms too heavily dressed or, what la even more common, especially among women, dressing so lightly that Windows are kept closed In order to be comfortably warm. This la a very ta lons practice. J»qio Could 8ave 100,000 Lives. T believe we could easily save one hundred thousand lives annually In the United States If all the people would adopt the system of fresh air living followed, for example. In tuber culosis sanatoria. There Is nothing mysterious about It—no specific medi cine, no vaccine. The Important thing Is right living,^ good food and plenty of fresh air. Droplet Infection Explained In Pictures.

Cara Should Be Exercised In Order to Destroy Root»—Dynamite Is Often and Successfully Used—Puller la Favored. (Prepared .by the United State* Depart ment'of Agriculture.) Timber land that Is not producing a profit and which is to be cleared Is usually utilized as pasture for several years before stumps are removed. Dur ing this time the underbrush Is clear ed up and many small stumps will en tirely decay. If the weeds anà sprouts In n pasture are kept under control, native grasses will gradually estab lish themselves even If no seeding has ever been done. Destroying stumps by means of burn ing Is an economical method and Is widely practiced, but care should be -cap Hoisting Large 8tump With Tripod. exercised if this method is used In or der to destroy the roots, so that they will not Interfere with cultivation. A common method of preparing a stump for burning is to dig two holes on opposite sides of the stump to a depth of about 80 Inches. Generally connection is made at the bottom of these holes by digging away the wall of earth between them. Any adhering earth Is scraped from the tap root and a fire started in one of the holes. If the fire is kept up It will burn most of the objectionable underground parts of the stump. Another method suc cessfully used In the long-leaf pine area Cjf the South Is to dig a hole on one side of the stump, and with a 1H tnch or 2-tnch anger bore a hole di agonally through the stump from the opposite side to the bottom of the hole. A fire Is then started in the excava tion and the auger hole serves as a flue., A method largely used in the northwest is to bore a hole horizontal ly Into the base of the stamp to point a little beyond the center. An other hole Is started aa high up on the side of thé stump aa possible And bored downward at an angle until It meets the first boring. A fire is started at the interception by the use of oil, pitch, coals or by dropping a hot Iron attached to a wire Into the hole. Af ter the fire Is started brush la piled about the stump. Dynamite is frequently and sucess fnliy used in removing stumps. Small charges are found useful In splitting stumps which can then be burned more readily. Larger charges are used to break the stump In pieces, so that they may be pulled easily, or sometimes to remove them from the ground entirely. The best time to blast stumps is when the ground Is saturated with water, aud the Electrical method of firing blasts Is recommended. Where a large number of stumps are to be removed the use of a stump puller Is advisable. There are two general types; those that pull the stamp from the side,.such as a capstan type, and those that lift the stump ver tically out of the ground by the use of a tripod. • Strict Confidence Most people want their financial affairs held strictly private.
