DEATH IN THE PENCIL. How Diphtheria May lie Spread In the City Schools. Chicago Record. Slate pencils have usually borne a good character. They hav modestly attended to their own affairs, and have avoided caualng trouble. Ileneath thl coy and retiring exterior Health Commissioner Kerr haa discovered ways that are dark and baleful. He haa accused th slate pencil of acting aa an agent In the spread of diphtheria. He has roundly de nounced It, and It la In disgrace. The commissioner. In his quest for the elusive bacteria, has found that In the city schools slate pencils are distributed among the pupils. They are gathered Into one box at the close of recitations and redistributed next morning. It Is by the merest chance that the same pencil will go twice to the same pupil. While the pupil Is punllng his brain over knotty points of study he puts the pencil In his mouth. This Is considered an aid to clear thinking. Now, the commissioners claims that if a pupil has any stray germs of diph theria lurking about hla system one of them will climb onto the point of the slate pencil and roost there until the pencil Is placed between the teeth of an other pupil. Then II slips gleefully down to the mucous membrane of the unsus pecting child's throat and seta about founding a diphtheria factory on Its own account. Commissioner Kerr thinks this Indis criminate Interchange of slate pencils may become a prolific source of spread ing contagion, and he has recommended that the board of education take steps to prevent Jimmy Jonea chewing Charley Smith's pencil HOW TO HANDLE A GUN. New York Times. The sad shooting accident In Astoria, In which a Utile boy of I years was acci dentally shot by his brother of II. and died soon after, should not be forgoten by boys who own and use guns. A part cf a soldier's training Is the enre with which he uses the dangerous tool he handles. He knows that It Is Impossible to be too careful. Not long ago an old officer visiting In a home where there ware several boys, was eagerly consulted by them as to the relative merits of their different rifles. It wss noticeable that this trained veteran, though he knew not one of the guna wns loaded (he took nobody's word for that, by the way. but looked himself), never let Ihe muisle of1 a gun point for a moment In any direc tion where If, by chance, It had been loaded and accidentally discharged, It could have done any Injury. It was Instinctive with him through long years of service to handle a gun for the thing It was a deadly weapon and to take no chances. DeWltt's Sarsaparllla Is prepared for cleansing the blood.
