"Is it true that we must remain in this house until the mystery is solved?" Mac returned her smile with in- j tcrest: "I'm afraid that it is," he said regretfully. "I daresay It is hard for you but," he looked her square In the eye, "but murder Is murder, a fact I'm afraid some of you are overlooking." "Oh!" Beneath her carefully applied makeup she turned pale.

Fatigue of the Aged Fought Wrth Tonics Condition Manifests Itself in Loss of Appetite, Sleeplessness, But Yields fo Treatment, Dr. Ctendening Says By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. PHYSICIANS and nurses who are not used to treating elderly pec- sons often arc puzzled by a peculiar Etatc of Hstlessncss, and mental confusion, and fatigue. There is n slight temperature and a soreness of the tongue nnd a general digestive upset. This condition is-well known to Epcciolists in diseases o- old age, geriatrics, and is called senile toxemia. The first symptoms usually complained of are weakness, loss of sleep, loss of appetite and lack of strength. Treatment usually is satisfactory. The diet-should be maintained whether there is appetite present or not. Bitter tonics containing small amounts of nux rom- ica in gentian compound bring about a rapid restoration. Con trsdietJos In the general care of the agcc we meet with very contradictory advice, especially from old people themselves, who aro very liable to ascribe their advanced years to some Dr. Clcndoning will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. particular thing that they have been doing all their lives. For instance William Cullcn Bryaut said: "I have reached a pretty advance! period of life -- 78 years and · months--without the usual infirm ity of old age. How far this is th effect of my -way of life is perhap uncertain. 1 arise early, at thi time of year about half past five, immediately, with very little er.cum brancc of clothing, begin a series o exercises for the most part designcc to expand the chest. These arc per f onncd with dumbbells and polo ani a horizontal bar. After a fall hou of this, I batho from head to fool My food is simple--hominy and mitt and apples for breakfast After breakfast I walk to the office of th 'Evening Post', nearly three mile distant, and after three hours wal home. In the country I am engage in my literary task until a f eelang o weariness drives mo out into th open air and I go into my garde and prune the trees or perform other work." This may have been all right fo William Cullen Bryant, but it woul certainly kill roost of tie old pcop! I know. The only conclusion we ca reach is that William Gallon Bryan must have been pretty husky to be gin with. This From Franklin We also have some advice from Benjamin Franklin: "It Is recorded of Mcthusolcm who, being the longest liver, may b supposed to have best preserved h health, that he slept always -in tl open air; fdr, when ho had live 600 years an angel said to hii 'Arise, Methusalem, and build tht an house, for tlioa shalt live yet 51 years longer,' but Mcthosalem x »wercd and said, 'Ifl am to iivc b BOO years longer, it is not wort wbflc to build mo an house--I m cep In the air? as I have been used' do.'" Certainly Mothusalcm should t» e.bcst authority on the care of old gc, but one wonders whether Bennun Franklin spoke for him or ot. This advice IB certainly coa- rary to what we said earlier in th« cek, that the elderly should be rotcctcd against draughts and haagcsof tcmporatarc.. Perhaps one conclusion to the ucstion of the care of the aged is to t them do what they want to do, ecause they are probably going to o it anyway. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS P. Y.: "Is it troe that you can get anccr from tomatoes that were ·ookcd in a galvanized kettle?" Answer--No. Neither tomatoes or galvanized kettles cause cancjer. Cancer ocean in animals and sav- ges who have never been near tomatoes or galvanized kettles. H. M,: "Docs mineral oil (Rns- ian oil) have any bad effects on he bowels or the stomach, such as ruination of the bowel muscles?" Answer--No. Mineral oU hat no oad effect on,any part of tho digestive tract. It is soothing rather than rritating and no matter how long it s taken, it docs not leave this effect. E. S.: "Is the continuous use of isyllium seeds likely to cause any mm? I take three tcaspoonfuls three times daily." Answer -- There are man? instances of psyllinm seed becoming mpactcd in the bowel and causing obstruction. In my opinion psyUium seed is one of the worst of the mild cathartics. 0. T.

Would yon kindly give mo * menu for a day--breakfast, Itmcb- eon and dinner?" Answer--In general the azsoat f food eaten is more important in ligh blood pressure than the kind f food. It is the consensus of opinion that meats should be reduced and emphasis placed on vegetables and fruits. I snggest as a mcnn: BREAKFAST: Grapefruit, 01 orange, or bananas, or prunes, or pear, or an apple (in fact, any fruit); buttered toast or shredded wheat with cream and sugsx; neither coffee nor tea affect blood pressure. LUNCHEON: Cottage cheese; f roit salad; any kind of cake as a dessert; glass of milk.-DINNER': Vegetable soap or any cream, soap; small helping of meat--fish, fowl, game or red meat; bread and butter; any two vegetables; io» cream and cake; coffee.
