SIDE GLANCES By George Clark An Editor's Advice Farm prices are about as low as they were 35 years ago, and farm tenancy and farm debts have Increased, wys Clarence Pos, publisher of the Progressive Farmer, in spite of sincere efforts to help the farmer and In spite of Improvement In farm methods. Then he adds: "I look back over 35 years of sincere and earnest effort to help the southern (arm folks trom whom I sprang, and of whose blood I n"'. And I look forward to 35 years ahead In which 1 hope to have R part, but In which a younger generation ol leaders will carry most of the heat and burden of the day. And to them and to the plain farmers and farm women all over Dixie I would |lve this message: "Agricultural lijenele* should :not .strive to do less to help th« farmer as an Individual, but^~ "We must work a thousandfold harder to enable farmers to help themselves through or' ganlzatlon. ' "If the next 35 years are lo bo more fruitful In southern agricultural progress than the last 35, I believe this result will come only through the organization of farmers and farm women—the women working always with the men. I had the privilege of a personal friendship with Sir Horace Plunkelt, Ihe great trlsh agricultural leader, and the last words I saw Irom his pen keep coming back to me: •The great mistake farmers make is that they have not learned the meaning of modern conditions of combination. They are individuals struggling against highly organized conditions."

By DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hygeia, .the Health Magazine Ordinarily scarlet fever is an acute infecllous condition which comes on suddenly with comes on suddenly with vomiting, high fever, severe sore Ihront and a brilliant red spotting or rash over tlie neck, chest and back. There is likely also to be a very intense redness of the Inside of the mouth and the tonsils, and an appearance of the tongue which Is like that of a strawberry. Usually the rash lasts from three to flve days. The fever goes on at Ihe same timic. Then the fever gradually .disapjiears and the rash fades. From a week to 10 days after tlie 'disappearance of the rash the skin begins to peel or, as is' said sclenliflcally, to desquamate. Some years ago Drs. George P find Gladys Henry Dick found tr.f cause of this disease lo be a gern of the type known as a slrepto coccus which produces a poison or toxin. This poison or toxin i found In the material In whicli th germs are growing. When such germs get into the tody they pro duce scarlet fever. ititoxin. However, if the patient very sick and if there are com- ications, it is customary to give i Injection of the anlitoxin; anti ierc Is already plenty of evidence indicate that it is effective. Because .scarlet fevev is not a •idespread disease any more, it is so apparently not worth while to Ject every child with a preventive accine. or to inoculate it wit's th? «in against scarlet fever. Such a ethod should be used only wh3n _child has been definitely exposed Jr when there is in a community severe epidemic of 'scarlet fever. There seems to bs good evidence lat the child who Is injected will evelop a resistance against scar- et fever lasting ab minimum 0112 ear, and perhaps longer. There are 10 records of any severe accidents ir injuries following the use ot hese preventive methods. New Word Is Added To Youths' Vocabulary ENID, Okla. (UP)—A new word has been added to the vocabulary of the young men around town hare —it Is "wlilskcrlng." "Whiskering" sprung into being shortly alter the, start of a campaign in anticipation of a celebration here. All males in Enid of sufficient maturity to grow boards •ere 1 urged to do so. No longer do the young men talk about "necking," or "sparking," and neither do the young women. ,The word used is "whiskeri'ig." NEXT: Do ail comets have tails? Below London there is a natural underground reservoir of water stretching about 30 miles north and couth of the city and about the same distance east and west. CHURCH EXCUSES BY GEORGE W.

It Is believed that such secondary symptoms of scarlet fever and such compllcaybns as tliu infected glands, infected ears, generalized bloc;! poisoning and similar disturbances are due to the sccDnrtnry poison. The Dicks developed a method of testing the skin of human 'wings to determine whether or not they were likely to develop •scarlet fever if exposed lo it. Moreover, they found ti:;U injection of a small amount of the toxin Or i>oison would cause the htiman being to develop resistance to tho disease. Furthermore, they fonnrt (hat the injection of a horse with this poison would cause the horse to develop in its bload an antitoxin which wns of value in overcoming scarlet fever. It should be rtalizcd, of , that the antitoxin may be given in •nn ordinary case of the disease and overcome the disease itself but at the same time the patient may have tlie complications lhat have been mentioned.

Gcm-.«onjs In Its canyon walls flash In the sunlight In a multl- hucd rainbow of color. Springs on the ranch have strange, health- giving flavors. Veins of coal, silver, gold, and copper ore have been found. A slrsngc troc on tlic ranch is shaped like a cross. Rocks in a little stream arc stained yellow by iron in the fchio i water.
