A "poison «afe" home is one where ail medicines are enclosed out of reach of children and all dangerous household cleaners are also stored, whert the latch is so high, busy little fingers cannot open it. But, there are other dangers. HEBE ARE A FEW LIFE SAVING HINTS: Do not permit visiting ladies to place their pocketbook on the floor or on chairs. Lilt e children like to open them and play with their contents. A purse is a trap, for it usually contains diet, Wood pressure, diabetes or tranquil- iier tablets, all of which are a great danger. BEWARE SWALLOWING CAMPHORATED OIL. Too often adults wrongly take it internally for coughs and colds. It affects the central nervous system. It causes convulsions and a surprisingly small dosage can be lethal to both children and adults. WATCH OUT WHEN TAKING IRON MIXTURES. Ferrous sulphate or other Iron compounds, In medicines for anemia, are so dangeroui If the dosage is too high that they usually require hospitalization almost as often proportionately as lye. : ', • • . .
