"What's a snob?" asked Miss Jersey Cow. i "Ah, a snob my dear," said Mrs. Jer Bey, chewing her end slowly, and look Ing at Miss Jersey out of big brown eyes, "Is a person or a creature who thinks she is better than her neighbor In fact almost better than anyoua else." "Iear me," said Miss Jersey, as she moved herself a little on her bed of cork which she thought was very com fortable, "and so you think you are bet ter than I am?" "Not a bit of It," said Mrs. Jersey, chewing a little faster. "Hut you said so," persisted Miss Jersey. "I'm a neighbor of yours." "Oh, that doesa't mean us it means sometimes a creature thinks she Is bet ter than her neighbor. A snob la soine oue who thinks she Is very superior and grand. And she wou't bother to speak to those she thinks are beneath her." "Such as worms, for example," said Miss Jersey. "You are very exact, Miss Jersey, but I really think It's too much trou ble for me to tell you any more about being a snob and what it means, for It takes my time avvuy from chewing so much, and also it makes me think a little. I hate to think." "So do I," said Miss Jersey, "but you (oust t,ell me If you think you are su perior to me or to someone else." "I will do that," suld Mrs. Jersey, "and then you will understand what a suob Is." "Continue," said Miss Jersey. "You see," said Mrs. Jersey, and Miss Jersey interrupted her. "I see all right but I don't bother to think much about what I see. Do I have to think what you are going to show me?" "No," said Mrs. Jersey, In a lany, drawling voice, "I simply said, 'You see,' as one who Says, 'You know" "Oh, a great relief," said Miss Jer sey. "You know, commenced Mrs. Jersey, "that other cows aren't treated as we are. They huve happy, country homes, but we belong to a very rich man and he is doing most amazing things to his cows, lie is making us live m luxury, not mud or grass or In ordinary barns." "Just the way we're living," said Miss Jersey. "It'8 delightful. But 0 Helps Sick Women Cardui, the woman's tonic, helped Mrs. Wil liam Eversole, of Hazel Patch, Ky.

She will tell you how it helped her. Try Cardui. All Druggists It has taken the medical profession Just 2,400 years to discover that, after all, there is no such disease as rheu matism. And it follows that the weather can't cause a disease- that doesn't ex 1st. Worse still, it Is plain that if there Isn't such a disease, your rheumatism medicine can't cure It. But what Interests the vlctora of joint disease Is, What In Sam Hill Is the matter, then, it it Isn't the rheu matiz? Well, let's try to get it clear. Granted that the acute inflammatory trouble known as "rheumatic fever" or "acute articular rheumatism" is caused by germs which invade the system, usually, from the tonsils. Vic tims of this atrociously painful and dangerous malady know that an at tack often follows shortly after a sore throat or tonsilitis or quinsy. And the danger In such attacks Is that the same germs that cause the sore throat or tonsilitis and the Inflammation of the Joints will just take a perverse course !ind lodge In the lining of the heart instead of lodging in the lining of a joint. When that happens the victim has acute endocarditis; and it the germs happen to set up business on one of the heart valves, the distor tion of the valve resulting from the In flammation and scar formation there 13 likely to leave permanent valvular leakage a lifelong handicap. But all these old chronic Joint trou bles labeled "rheumatism," what are they? They are various kinds of joint in lection, with various species of germs, and the germs get in, not only from the tonsils, hut from several other Innocent-appearing sources as well. They get In from trifling infected gums, old and painless abscesses about the root3 of the teeth, old inflammatory condi tions In the pelvic organs of women and men, old running ears, chronic trouble in the air spaces in the skull accessory to the breathing passages, and In some cases even from such un suspected places as ingrowing nails This has all been worked out and scien tifically proved; the germs have been caught in the act, arrested and idea t'f1 The way to cure that old "rheuma tism," then, Is to find the depot of poison, and destroy It or clean it up.

Hot weather Is very hard on the av erage baby, particularly the teething baby. It is, therefore, necessary to take extra care of the little ones dur ing the heated term. Inasmuch ai the summer Is here, the Health De partment Is anxious to co-operate with all mothers In order to help them tlclq the babies over. Twenty-five years ago about one half the babies born died the first year. Now about 15 per cent die tho first year. Still this rate is much too high. Note first, that: Ten Bottle-Fed Babies Die to Every One that Dies when the Mother Nurses the Baby. In other words, boi-tie-fed babies have only one-tenth tho chance to live that breast fed babies have. So nurse your baby by a!) means, If posslle. It is a crime no; to do so. Feed the Baby regularly and not every time It cries. Bathe the baby two or three times a day during hot weather. Give baby pare water to drink sev eral times a day. The Fly In Baby's Milk The fly in baby's milk may mean death to the baby. Flies come into your home from the filthiest of daces and should be killed as quick y as possible.
