and a u Geo. next week a k i n g Andrew i g h t lot- n e r a l of J o h n Snyder u n t a i n s on a , lie. boon home. o u t e y . has been sick. RliCBilJF MS EPlbEMlC e , ol ii'-'n S u n d a x Besides the special work conducted by hundreds of Bed Cross Chapters throughout the country In checking the recent epidemic of Spanish Influenza, Influenza, the organization through Its headquarters at Washington Is preparing preparing to flght a repetition of the experience experience that wns so disastrous this fall, educating the public thoroughly regarding regarding the symptoms and the proper care at the beginning of an attack. addition to this, the American Red Cross is righting tuberculosis. The recent recent appropriation to the National Tuberculosis Association will be used educational as well as relief work throughout the country. So much has been said about the aftermath of the epidemic that especial especial attention Is being given to the work along this line. The weakness which follows influenza leaves the patient In a condition which makes a good field for the germs of tuberculosis. A thorough physical examination, examination, proper food and clothing, the of mild preventives, will check the progress of the disease at once. Tuberculosis, or consumption, as Is frequently called, Is both preventa-. ble and curable, provided the treatment treatment of the disease is begun before Is too far advanced. Medicine plays comparatively small part. The frequently frequently advertised "consumption cures" should be looked upon as poison. The only medicine which should be taken Is a good tonic which will stimulate the appetite nnd build up the system generally. The main cure lies In proper food, sufficient rest,', fresh air and sunlight and living, If, possible, according to the plan pre-; scribed by a good physician. This news the patient's vitality and soon! kills the disease entirely. |
