'. • - BRUMBAUGH HEADS SEAL SALE AGAIN HARRISBURG, Nov. 5.--Between the ages of 1 and 35 tuberculosis is the chief cause of death in Pennsylvania. Referring to this enbrmous 1 loss in the productive years of. life, Dr. M. G, Brumbaugh, forrner governor, in announcing to'day his acceptance of the chairmanship for the Christmas seal sale i'n Pennsylvania, calls for a continued %.nd vigorous fight against tuberculosis. Dr. Brumbaugh, who Is president of Juniata college, in writing to the Pennsylvania Tuberculosis society says: • "Tuberculosis is still too prevalent to relax one's concern for its eradication. In this state last year tuberculosis took 8,732 lives. Two-thirds of the victims were under 45 years of age, the period when a person is of the greatest value to the home and the' cbmiriuriity. ."The health of our citizenry la so vital to the commonwealth *,hat it seems to me a privilege as well as a duty to do what I can to place in the hands Of your splendid and efficient Tuberculosis society all the funds necessary to combat effectively the scourge. "For these reasons I shall heartily devote to this effort my best energies and 1 earnestly hope that the work of the Pennsylvania Tuberculosis so- •ciety and its affiliated organizations be- enlarged and that the health and happiness of our millions may bo largely promoted. The united effort to -drive out tuberculosis must go on unabated." WEEKLY HEALTH'TALK By DR. THEODORE B.

"About fifteen years ago this disease was definitely classified by scientists working on the Pacific coast. It is occasioned by a germ which invadea the body through sores or cuts on the hands/ The malady frequently manifests itself suddenly, and characteristically by headache, vomiting, chills, aching pains sweating, prostration and fever. The active stage of 'the disease lasts from two to three weeks during which weakness, loss of weight, recurring' chills, sweats and prostration are noted, as also are ulceratlons occurring at the cite of infection and the developing of 'wax kernels' \ in the affected region. "It follows that even though it ia In Hollldaysburg See and Hear The New R. C. A. RADIOLAS at ALLEN'S DRUG STORE 306 Allegheny St. GABLE'S R. C. A.

Evidence of the infection in the rabbit Is exhibited by small white spots on the liver. It may he added that cook- Ing the meat kills the organism rendering it perfectly safe for human consumption, "To be careful in handling flre-arms and rabbits Is little td ask in return for a safe and pleasant trip in the woods.
