Rheumatism depends on an acid
which flows in the blood, affecting
the»muscles and joints, producing in
flammation, stiffness and pain. Thia
acid gets into the blood through some
defect in the digestive processes, and
remains there because the liver, kid

SAFETY FIRST

Source of Guilt.
"Accidents will happen." We have
heard this so long and so often that,
sometimes, we are tempted to take the
point of view of th£ fatalists and say,
"What is the use of trying to avoid
the inevitable?" Fortunately we do
not harbor this pessimistic thought
for. any length of time, for a little
stuhy ot the accident problem will
convince any reasonable person that
accidents can be checked and con
trolled and, in a great measure, pre
vented iby the exertion of the same
degree of effort that brings success in
other undertakings of a lifetime.
This fac^ has been proven beyond
doubt ln the operation of safety de
partments on- the railroads of this
country. It was only about five years
ago that the safety idea was started
by the railroads, and it was not an
easy thing to popularize the movement
with the rank and file of employes.

of its most common weaknesses is the
tendency to court disaster through
lack or ordinary, sensible precaution.
Every day you can see the truth of
this statement in some of the yards
of the roads In this and other
states. Be it said to the credit of
those persons who have assisted the
railways, that there is quite a
noticeable Improvement. Not so many
people are taking desperate chances,
either by walking on the tracks or in
careless crossing over tracks. But
much yet remains to be done along
this line and more helpers are needed
to use their influence for safety.
Anybody who will ta.ee the trouble
to visit a railroad crossing out In the
country, will be astounded to see how
reckless are automobilists and other
drivers. The narrow railroad track,
so easy to cross ln safety, so danger
ous a pitfall to the unwary, is taking
larger toll than ev#r. Probably the
average driver of a motor car will not
have more than two trips over railroad
crossings in his daily routine. That
narrow track, lass than five'feet from
rail to rail! Doesn't it seem as if
one's life Is of enough value to make
it worth while to take the extra pre
caution needed ln that spot?
Surely tt Is worth thinking about
and isn't It likely that passing up this
subject without thought is the cause
of nineteen-twentleths of the trouble?
