Women In Industry Have Greater Health Hazards ' Than Men Face . * This Is the fourth of a series of articles in which Dr. Morris Fish- "bein discusses diseases and other health hazards in industry. (No. 345) The occupational hazards of women differ in several particulars from those which affect men—first because of the 'difference-in the nature of the constitution of the women worker and sec- ,ond because of the special work in -which woman may be employed. .The World War increased tremendously the total amount of employment among women. In some populations, notably those o£ .the smaller foreign countries, more than 40 per cent of women are employed. In England and Wales, in Sweden and in Belgium 25 per cent of women are employed; in Hie United States about 17 per cent of women work for a living. It Is well established that industrial 'disease-will aggravate or increase the number of conditions from which 'young women suffer, including disturbances of the blood, the nervous System and the organs associated with childbirth.; According to the statistics published by various sickness insurance groups abroad; the women suffer much more from industrial conditions than do men. The average death rate for women in industry is higher than the 'general average, and also higher than the rate for men of a comparable age. - It is found that women in industry are more susceptible to fatigue and j monotony than are men. ] In England it was found that women employed in light work for 60 hours a week had 91 per cent more accidents than men doing the same amount of work. When the hours were reduced to 40 per week, the women still had 48 per cent more accidents than the men. Altogether, however, it is the function of maternity which raises the greatest question in relationship to woman and work. Pregnancy hazards are greater for the woman in industry than they would be for the same woman under ordinary conditions. Among the chief dangers to the woman at work are positions which require that the body be held in the same position — either upright, seated or bent — for long periods of time, since CHAPTER XXVII went into the bedroon and picked up the little gadge for which she had searchei through her lower bureau drawer It was a small dressmaker's awl used years ago by her mother fo: marking out patterns. All alonj it had been a perfectly useles thing: Cilly kept it only agains the possibility that it might corm in handy sometime. This was thi time. The little gadget not onlj marked oft patterns very nicely but a long time ago Cilly hac found that it cut glass without anj effort and without any crash oi splintering. It was going to servi that purpose now, for Cilly wai And where were her underthlhgs, her house dresses? She opened the door wider, to see deeper into the closet. , . . Here was something! Another coat, it appeared. Cilly brought it out to the light. Why, it was a man's coat! A man's topcoatl Cilly felt suddenly panic- stricken. Here was the solution to the mystery. Here in Mrs, Elliot's apartment. This was wher<» a man had been hiding out , , , and Mrs. Elliot must have known him, else he would not have th* temerity to hang his topcoat ir» her closet. Mrs. Elliot knew yvho the murderer was. That was why she was remaining in Connecticut, until all the excitement had died down. , . , * * * TN the instant of that realization Cilly froze with terror. Where was the man now? How soon would it be until he returned and found here there? Perhaps any minute now, she would see him. She would be face to face with the murderer of Amy Kerr. And she would be just as helpless as Amy had been up there on the roof. . . . If she waited long enough, she. going housebreaking. She wai going to solve the mystery of Mrs would discover him.

Weekly Sunday School Lesson By WM. E. GILBOY, D. D. Editor of Advance Christian Speech and Conduct Text: James 3 James, reputed to be the brother of our Lord, is one of the most direct and practical of teachers. The counsel that he gave to early Christians in his general epistle is very good counsel for our own time. It is reenforced by very striking figures and illustrations. Here in our lesson he is dealing with Christian speech, and strikingly he emphasizes the need of restraint and adequate discipline. He draws his illustration from the bridle by which a horse is controlled, and from ships, which though they are great and driven by rough winds, are turned about by a very small rudder. "So the tongue," he says, "is a member, and boasteth great things." But the tongue needs control. "It is a fire: the world of iniquity among our members is the tongue." How true that all is! The power of words, the way lit which they can create wrong impressions, and convey injuries from which there may be no recovery! James sees the tongue as a sort of untamable beast, a restless evil full of deadly poison when it is Cobb's Radio SERVICE BEST WORK LOWEST PRICES Phone 383 not controlled. "With the tongue," he says, "we bless the Lord and Father, and with the tongue we curse men made after the likeness of Ged. Out of the same mouth cometh forth blessing and cursing." What is man to do with this dangerous weapon of the tongue, that may affect his whole body? He is to seek wisdom, and he is to find that wisdom was like walking on greased glass, * * * CHE hesitated a moment as she u finally reached the window ol Mrs. Elliot's bedroom, and tried •Merce the gloom within thi room.

Fearlessly she peered through the window only to get) a glimpse of the room's layoutf Then she took the dressmaker'^ tool out of her pocket, i Very carefully she cut a semi-< circle in the pane of glass directly above the window's catch—just enough so that she could slip her| fingers through and unlatch thq, window.

There is no use hoping to control the tongue if there be not a right atti- mercy in the soul, there will be little mercy in one's words, and if there be | not a peaceablt disposition, the tongue | will be a breder of strife and bitterness. Few counsels for living life well are of more practical value than these plain words of James; and it ought to be remembered that "the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace for them that make peace." Peace does not come by chance. It comes through the attitude and action of those who prepare for it. The world is full of dissension and bitterness today because men have not sought peace and prepared for it. They have lusted for wealth and power and have cared more for their own way and interest than for the common good. James enforces the truth that peace and welfare do not come that way. Blevins Mrs. D. M. Sassaman of Atlas, Oklahoma, spent last week in Blevins visit- for the broken window pane. The small semicircle of glaso fell to the floor within the roora» and splintered with a resounding! crash. But it could not have been] heard anywhere except in the apartment below, and that was her own. Cilly unlocked the window and raised it slowly. An instant later, she slid over the sill, careful not to tread on the brokea glass at her feet. She wished she had brought t flashlight, but she did not owl, one. She looked carefully at th// window shade. , . . Good! It was of this apartment and downstairs just as fast as ever she could. She did not dare go out into the other rooms to search for more clews. She would call Sergeant Dolan immediately and let him do that Somewhere a board creaked suddenly. Cilly spun around and starud outside, into the darkness that was the living room beyond. She could see nothing. She stood still, for one dreadful moment. She must go over to the doorway and switch off the light, yet she hesitated. For some reason she didn't want to be left in that dark bedroom to find her way back to the fire escape. And even as she thought this, her eyes widened in horror. Shei tried to scream, yet the very breath choked in her throat. ForV a man's hand—a large, powerful hand—reached in from the living room and turned off the light instead. The next instant, she felt that hand around her throat, and she was dimly conscious of the odor of damp tweeds. ... / (T» Be Continued) ••', With the County Agent Clifford L.

Horse Ailment It is almost impossible to secure ierum for the treatment of horses and mules that are affected with encephalomyelitis, or "sleeping sickness," according to word received from Dr. C. D. Slubbs, state veterinarian. However, Dr. Stubbs said that a supply of vaccine is available for the prevention of the disease. Dr. Stubbs estimated Thursday morning that at least 150 horses and mules in thirteen northwestern Arkansas counties are affected with the disease, and that between 60 per cent and 75 per cent of the affected animals are dying. He pointed out that in some localities as many as 60 per cent will recover. Many of the cases that recover now will be more or less permanently affected, depending on the severity of NOTICE! j To My Customers and Friends: ' I have changed from Nelson- fiuckins to Hope Steam Laundry, and Invite you to continue your business with me.

Safety on the Road By the Stntc Itljtuvny OepnMmcnt One of the strlous offenses under the Arkansas Motor Vehicle law Is that | of driving while'under the influence of Intoxicants. The court may impose a sentence of a fine up to $1,000 or by imprisonment far not less than ten day's or more than one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment; and wherever a driver is convicted of driving while under the influence of intoxicants, it is mandatory that his driver's license bo revoked for one year. Reckless driving is another offense^ which results in many casualties and is dealt with very severely. UUpon a third conviction for reckless driving in any one year, it is compulsory that the driving license of such offender be revoked. The speed of motor vehicles outside of municipalities is that which is reasonable and prudent under the conditions then existing, and where no special hazards exist a speed of 20 miles pr hour is permitted in business districts, and 25 miles per hour in resident districts, with provisions which enables local authorities to raise these speed limits to not to exceed 45 miles per hour. The usual investigations for speed ot\ through streets and boulevards dicates that a speed of about 35 miles per hour where there is a reasonable amount of traffic Is about as high as may be maintained with safety, and at the same time is not so slow as to keep traffic from moving as it should. The Stale Highway Commission inny also post zones of speed in various places as they consider it necessary after thoroughly Investigating the traffic conditions at such points. As over against speeding, slow driving is also hazardous and no one shall drive a. motor vehicle at such a slow rate of speed as to block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic. There seems to be little doubt that much nf the driving on highways to- a moving story, told with humor and great understanding.

Most of the animals are now affected with what is known as the "eastern strain" of the disease, which is not as virulent as the "western strain." He said that if the two strains of Die disease become mixed, the mortality rate might increase. Dr. Stubbs ndviscil that no attempt be made to drench affected animals with medicine because, in many cases, animals are unable to swallow, with the result that the lungs will become drenched. The veterinarian .said that the disease should not be confused with "blind staggers" or "forage poison," which occurs about this time of the year. Consequently, he said, the disease should be diagnosed by someone acquainted with it. The thirteen counties reporting the disease are Bcnton, Yell, Carroll, Boone, Newton, Pope, Johnson. Franklin, Crawford, Sebastian. Scott. Logan. Veterinarians from the state office are working in the affected area and have secured the assistance of federal veterinarians. «E>-»4BB The Africa okapi is related to the giraffe, but, according to scientific findings, the okapi is more primitive in skeletal formation than any of the fossil giraffes so far discovered.

With intelligence and comixisslon, Miss Hitrslon tells the story of Junic, a Florida Negress, and of the three men she loved and lived with. She married Logan Killicks, the prosperous farmer, because her grandmother desired it. When love did not come to her with time, as her granny had said it would, she left him for Joe Stacks. When she and Joe first met, he had nothing. But chance sent thorn to Eatonville. and there his ambition and lust for power made him mayor of the town. As his power increased, his love for Janie and his kindness to her diminished. At last, his cruelty goaded her to madness and she killed him. A long time passed, and then one day "Tea Cake," young ami debonair and swaggering, stepped into her store. What happened to Janie after that brought her the only real happiness she ever knew.
