MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hygela, the Health Magazine Your body contains enough iron to make five carpet tacks. That's quite a small amount, compared with the cither elements in your system, but even this small quantity is an important ingredient of the red blood cells. anl a means for conveying oxygen through the body and supplying it to the tissues. As against the five carpet tacks of iron in the body, there is enough phosphorus to make 8000 small boxes of matches, and enough sulphur to make 9000 pencils. Most of this is in a mixture with about nine to ten gallons of water. If your body is conducting its chemical system in an ordinary manner, only a trace of iron is lost daily during the process of digestion, exercise. j tor all, changed much since Shakespeare's time. He makes full mention of England's troubles. Trade is bad, shipping is bad. mining is bad. the end of the dole is not in sight. Yet he finds his Englishmen are not discouraged. They still thank God they live in a free country, and they carry a big stick for anyone who wnnts them to live otherwise ;and their character is still a good bet. to bring survival, and revival, in a world uncommonly full of difficulties.

J. H. Hcckman, extension economist in marketing, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, who is in charge of the potato progmm for Arkansas, has advised Mr. Stanley. This means that a buyer would not violate the Act in this respect unless he purchased potatoes direct from n prcwpr, knowing that the grower had not complied with the requirements of the law, Mr. Stanley explains. Most retail sales of potatoes do not in nny manner come within the scope 01 the Potato Act. The Act says that first sale of potatoes harvested nnd sclc! on or after December 1, 1935, 5'hu be in closed containers bearing tax-exempt or tax-paid potato stamps.

Women may need more iron at certain intervals than at others, but even when they lose considerable blood they require only 9 1-10 milligrams of iron a day, which is about twice the usual amount. Ordinarily, there is little reason to take extra quantities of iron into the body. Children are born with an extra reserve of iron as a protection against blood loss. While iron in milk is not exceedingly large in amount, authorities in half in town, so I have double memories to revert to. "Maybe it was my temperament not to be gurglng with joy. but at any rate I don't seem to have any hangover of happiness about it all now. "There , t was,,.always something I seemed to. be dreading. If it was not a calling-down from my dad it was a reminder from my mother. Grandmother was always telling me to be a good boy and talking morals to me, and the aunts and uncles were forever comparing me to my cousins. Honor Thrcueh Dishonor "I never expected praise for anything and never got it. What I did that was right didn't draw any praises. I was never told what a good boy I was. I see now why Jack Horner had to pat his own back. Except once that impressed itself on my memory, perhaps, because it was so rare. I sneak- I ed the old shepherd dog into Grandma's and kept him in my room one night. He slept on my bed. The next morning some farmers came to accuse Shep of killing sheep. Said he had been seen. I produced Shep and all the family looked at me as though I were Lafayette and Houdini rolled into one. I was allowed to have all the chicken and noodles I wanted. If I had asked to set fire to the barn that day somebody would have handed me a match. And yet I had achieved the honor through dishonor. Those- things were always mixing me up.

Lean meat furnishes considerable iron, but not as much as liver and lamb's | kidneys. One- egg will yield about one-tenth of all the iron needed hy the body during the day. Dried fruits are a good source of iron; .so are the leafy vegetables, such as parsley, spinach, and leaf lettuce. On the other hand, celery, cabbage, and head lettuce are not exceedingly rich in phosphorus or iron. Once it was argued that raisins were a marvelous source of iron in the body, and therefore exceedingly healthful. Actually considering the amounts of raisins eaten, they are not an illustration of the opposite method happened at school when I went back to the city one fall. Story of a Gold "Penny" "We were asked to take pennies to buy some milk for poor babies. My mother was away, but she had left some change in the corner of a drawer. I never took money but I thought she would forgive a penny. There was only one, a big shiny piece, and I took it and dropped it in the box.
