to have started about altogether
another matter. Hard words
passed and a fight resulted
wherein knive3 were U3ed very
freely until Josh Hadley inter
fered. It is said that he struck
Tom, his son, and knocked him
loose from his brother Oscar.
Tom then went to ih J house for
his gun and was followed by his
father. There another difficulty
came up and Tom shot and seri
ously wounded hi3 father.

were present at the still, have

that more than a hundred stit

only one cut, and that in the

accounts from thje wounded in

One of the regretable parts of
this happening was that the still
succeeded in making its escape.
'Just how this came about we are
not informed, but it i3 said that
it was not-brought in. This
means that someone intends to
use it again. Let us hope that it
will be speedily caught.

their printing to large cities.
When they are 'laid to rest' the
bereaved ones will expect us to

if we do it". While Editor II. W.

for the fact that this disease was
considered hereditary; for it is
Iw.vn that like b3get3 li'te, and
that an unfavorable tendency in
the parent cauces a like unfavor
able condition in the child.
It is now known that this the
most dreaded of - maladus o,f
common occurence is always
"caught ' nd t at t is lot p e
ventable and curable. No person
ever had tuberculosis 6imply be
cause it "run in the family". It
was "caught'irom some mem

other where" they may have been
from a cow or any one of a h alf
dozen other domestic animals, or
even from' some person Wholly
without the family. y
JLi is better to ?tay weirtha. to
risk i cure from treatment: the
refore, all should avoid this drea
ded disease. n order .to do this
it is necessary -to - understand
something of the nature of the
germs andthe manner of transmis
sion from the sick to the well
the germs' being of a vegetable
nature, the manner of this trans
formation is not unlike pesky
weed planted in good soil. The
nature of this particular germ is
not unlike a potato in its form and
erowth: hence the mature germ
may be planted directly from the
field" where it grew into new
ground; or it" may be "stored"
for a .considerable time and then
planted wherever the soil is suit
able. This being so, it is necess
ary to avoid not only the fellow
with the "patch" but his stopage
places as well. These may pe
houses, streets, drinking cups or
But what would, be better is for
every man to care for his own
"crop". No man has a right to
go, up and down the street with
a loaded gun shooting people as
he comers to them. Neither has
he the right to frequent places
where others must go and there
scatter germ whose - growth
means death as siirely as doe3 a
shot from a gun. Neither has a
man a right to be snapping an
empty gun at his fellows; but
he ha3 as much right to do this
ed shouli be stopted, and that
external patches shobld be kept
covered to prevent carriers from
picking up the germs. It "also
means that the . afflicted should
use his own driukfng cup and
and toilet articles. In fact, it
would be well for him to keep
from" others most articles of
personal use until the same are
made sterile, and therefore,
harmless. ' " ' ; ; ' '
Then, too, it is well to look
carefully over the animals with
which one associates. Practical
ly every species of ,t domestic
animal is known to contract this
disease, and these are always a
source pf danger unless it is
known that they are free from
the germ3. Be caaeful where
your milk comes ' from and , that
your fresh meats are not a source
of infection ;
Bit after all else is said, - the
greatest danger is from the skit
ter. 'Wherever one who is giv

Color really does fight disease. Take
for example the ultraviolet ray. Hero
we have a most convincing proof of the
healing force that, resides in color.
This -famous 'ray'. exerts a very po

process Is set up by which ihe disease

There are many men and women in this town whom life
apparently has treated unkindly. Without true friends thejr
struggle against odds. .

Christianity Means Helpfulness
Meet these church people half way.. Give them an opportu
' nity to be your" friends. ''Come unto me and I will give you
jest." Thus directed the founder of Christianity. His promise
- Stands today. Test it. Crosses which arise in business, in school,
in the home are more easily borne if one has accepted the .
assurance that Jesus Christ is ever ready to help.
