This is a result of improved communication, both public and private, which enables us to ^et. nearly all the tiows we want, ri^-lit at home without otTur.t. Thus, even in ;m interesting election year, it is likely that the ,u'i'eat majority fit' Americans will ,yet their political news ami make their decisions without leaving home, except to, fi ast their ballots. And such is the natural sloth of thu human animal that undoubtedly, after a few more elections, we shall work out- some easy wtr' of registering our ballots at homo, perhaps" without leaving our arm i-imirs. It may be dune just by pressing buttons iir by moving levers, after a method already adopted in many cities, but lira yet established in the living room. Jt would lie interesting to know what all this means in terms of human evolution. Probably physical decadence, of which there are already many intima- •lions. Tlie more highly civil i/ud man grows, tho la'/.ier he becomes. He may use his mind more, but his body may deteriorate, in time, to such a degree that .he is incapable of physical locomotion. And then maybe some livelier animal will come along and calmly take his place in the evolution of planetary life. By that time-we may have grown so lazy that we won't care at till. .'Beacon Falls patter: Jane- Sxcxesinl, who is now on her vacation at the home of. her parents, on h'ai.lroad'avenue,-, -was., one of the many nurses and doctors who wi.;rc called to the scene of the u n forge t- ttil'ile circus fire' in 'Hartford' last week;' Jane is a nurse at the Newiugton -veterans' hospital Mr. and Mrs. Frank Smtih and'the children .returned from Fall L'iver, Mass., after a vacation to their .home on Railroad avenue Mr-, and.

The virus enters through. the bite or ariy break in the'- skin (there are cases where the infection occurred in a cut on the^hand when the owner petted a sick,dog and the dog licked the cut on-tho hand), It travels along the nerve paths to the brain.

The "furious" form 1 in which the dog •is excited and restless and flnaJly -becomes very agitated and goes on a,.snapping' and biting spree occurs in 80 per cent of instances. Frequently, however, the two forms •merge. • •. . '', The practical lesson ' arc that any dog that changes .dis'positioa suddenly in hot weather is potentially dangerous.
