OLD MAN "HAY FEVER"
MAKES ANNUAL VISIT
Thousands of persons in Mich
igan are stocking up with an ex
tra supply of handkerchiefs, pre
paring for many sleepless nights
and looking forward with no
pleasant thoughts to the annual
attack of hay fever. Pollen from
blooming grass and ragweed the
heaviest source will soon find its
way into the noses and throats of
many victims. "Hay fever, the
unmistakable disease which seems
to have announced in medical lit
erature in 1919 and which sends
thousands every year to hay fever
camps in northern Michigan can
often be prevented," says Dr. R.
M.Olin state health commissioner.
"Innoculation of hay fever suf
ferers is accomplished by giving
small amounts of the pollen to
which the person is sensitized.
This method has been worked out
effectively by a number of physi
cians. Another preventative meas
ure consists in thorough examina
tion of the nose and throat and
treatment of any disease found.
Eradication of the- ragweed, the
pollen of which causes the great
est number of hay fever cases,
will aid materially in curbing tho
disease, authorities declare. An
nual attacks come in August and
generally continue for six or eight
weeks. The illness commences
with a slight tickling in the eyes
and nose which comes and goes
for about a week and is accompan
ied by occasional fits of sneezing.
The symptoms may be headache,
weakness, exhaustion, depression
or ill-humor. Loss of sleep and
asthma are serious effects of the
disease. The results make its vic
tims more susceptible to diseases
of the respiratory tract. Poor
physical and mental condition
may provoke an attack. "Keep
yourself fit and inspect any symp
toms of hay fever thereby avoid
ing a great inconvenience and
saving money and time for the
state," Dr. Olin advises.
Mrs. Eliza I. Biddlecomb, age
49, wife of William G. Biddlecomb
died early Monday morning at
the Port Huron hospital, follow
ing a prolonged illness.
Mrs. Biddlecomb was born in
Pierson, Mich., and came to Port
Huron immediately after her
marriage, 30 years ago. Since
that time' this city has been her
home, and her acquaintanceship
in the city was extensive.
She is survived by her husband,
one daughter, Mrs. Berton Post,
of Detroit; three sisters and one
brother: Mrs. Ethel Pardy, Los
Angeles, Calif; Mrs. Emory Jaqua
Mrs. Emma McNaughton, and
Edward Hopkins, Battle Creek.

YOUR LOCAL PAPER
What's in a paper ? This: It
is as clearly representative Of a
community as a mirror is of an
object. If the paper is a livd,
thrifty one, the community it
represents ia a busy mart with
wide-awake merchants, ready to
avail themselves of an opportun
ity to advertise their various
lines of merchandise. If the pa
per is listless, with little or no
financial support, you can depend
upon it, it's a poor community to
tie to. In other words, you need
not go to the trouble of personally
visiting a town to find out about
it. Procure a paper published
