THE DREAD DISEASE.

A writer in the Cedar Rapids Ga-

urged bv several mends to give his

experience may be in some sort use

He says: Mv tirst serious trouble
With diphtheria was in St. Charles,
Minn. The disease was known to
tbe local physicians as black diph

greatest trouble was in getting rid
of the false membrane. After trving
the several agents ccnerallv Pre

experience in my boyhood days the
results ot trying to eat a pineapple
without sugar, and in after lite made
several experiments with the juice of
a ripe pineapple. 1 bad some ex

tbe pineapple into small pieces with
out paring the fruit, I pressed out

until there was no further need of it.
As a preventative I generally gave
one to ounces of the fruit to be eaten
without sugar four or five times a
dav. Sugar destroys the valuable
acid, and renders the juice useless.
