Not merely to seil seals, but to sell health. When peop'e learn to think, then will they begin to serve. Every seal we buy to to st'ek on letters, smt packages, is a help toward the cure anti prevention of Tuberculosis. When we teach children to keep their bodies clean, to keep in the fresh air and «un nine -as much as possible; eat clean and nourishing food and to learn health habits, we are helping to stamp Tuberculosis. The greatest in fant morta ity is among the colored people. Thu majority of active Tuber culosis cases are found among young adult* between the ages of 15 and 35 years. Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by germs-without the germ there never can be infection or Tuber culosis. The germ is given by partic les trown olf when coughing, or sneez ing, or from du*t. The The National Tuberculosis Association, of which we are a part, has asked Massac County for $1500.00 this veor, as our share to wards this Se»I Sale. The association gizes us 70 per cent of the money for use in controlling the spread of this ditease in our county, fha balance of the money is to go to the Associa tion to wads research work and pre paring and sending ail the posters, stamps, or seals and bonds-also adver Using matter, all of which costs money and wiihout which we cannot work in intelligently. With the money we get. we hope to hire a nurse to io >k af ter our School children, send all who have tubercular symptoms to a physi cian—have ciinics and dispensaries. Wont you buy seals? Sell seals. Keep up the fight. DR. G. W.
