D. WE HAVE spoken this w«k mostly of tho value of sunliRht in rickets, n disease of childhood, but, of course, sunlight U valuable in many other conditions. The common cold, both *a to prevention »nd treatment, is still in the doubtful class. There Is evidi-nco from some workers \chomakc claims for the use of ultra-violet radiition that it prevents frequent colds. They advise brief exposures a few time* weekly to the entire body. The use of light as a cor.cral tonic is also employed. Sun lumps and ultra-violet lamps have become somewhat faddish methods of treatment and are used in a groat variety of diseases. For instance, in the convalescent period of grippe, influenza, pneumonia, typhoid fe- fer, rheumatism, arthritis, asthm*, etc. There is a jfood deal of evidence that lipht treatment does moch good in these miscellaneous conditions, Skin Dtseaacg In ftfcttv diseases it has considerable usefulness. In acne or pimple*, nJtra-Yiolet light ajEsta materially in cleaning up the infection. Alto in boils, carbuncles and skin inf actions, generally. Superficial skin ulcers tend to heal under it* influence. Tuberculosis of the skin has been treated by light since tiic days of Finsen. Chilblains, or f ro^t biles, RTC also benefited by exposure to ultra-violet light. The painful redness, swelling and itching are greatly alleviated. - Skin Grafting It appears that ultra-violet lipht is of aid in skJn grafting cases, the number of takes being increased when the area is exposed to nltra- Tiotet light or sunlight. The coloring: matter of plants, which develops on exposure to sunlight, is known as chlorophyll. A comparison might be made between the chlorophyll of the plant and the hemoglobin of the blood in the animal body. Hemoglobin gives most of the color to the humnn body just as chlorophyll gives most of the color to the plant. Hemoglobin seizes on the oxygen breathed into the lungs and as the blood goes through the body it delivers this oxygon to the tissues so that they may transform food into energy. The chlorophyll of the plant, energized by sunlight, rips the carbon atoms away from thr oTy£fn in (lie air and «;oou I runs forms the c.irbon into t h a ^Larches and sugars. Common Orijrin "Kcaulu of this kind seem to illustrate tbfc most icmote period in the evolutionary development of or- snnisrr.3 and point to a common origin of the plant and animaj world. Ixaif and blood pigments are shown to be related chemically bat -widely different as to function." (PalladJn, Plant Physiology.) Dr. Clendeninj; will answer question.*; of eeneral interest only, and then only through his column. The pigmentation of nature H mostly made by a few metals. The chief ones arc iron, copper and sulphur. It is not surprising to learn thnt bilirahin, which is one of the coloring matters of human bilo, can be derived either from the chlorophyll of plants or from the hemoglobin of th^ blood of animals. As a matter of fact, in tho hnman body bilirnbin is derived entirely from blood pigmrnt* because bite is the result of the destruction of blood. QUESTIONS AND AXSWBRS B. M.: "Plejwe tell me how to g*t rid of warta." Answer: One method is to expose them to tho X-ray for a short time. One exposure is enough and in A ·wwk or go the cxwner will be surprised to find that the warts have disappeared. Another method that frequently work* is to get a one- our.cft bottle of formalin and moisten tho cork with the liquid very slightly and just touch the tip of the wart with this slightly-moist cork. If this is done five or six times a day a [rreat many of these warts will eventually disappear. C. C. C-: "Is there any cure for a bunion in its first stages?" Answer--The only thing to do for a bunion in the early stages is to protect it with fl bunion plaster and to wear romfortablo shoes that do not rub the bunion. Proper protection -will usually result in disappear- ancc.

Youth, Like Corrigan, Goes Wrong Way; Misses/Florida j ^ ^Continued from PagejjSne. Until contacted by new/papermen Monday night, memberspL the family knew nothing of his whereabouts. Russell had been delivering The Courier in the Moriell district tor the past two years. Prior to that, a brother, Ralph, had been agent, beginning about 14 years ago. Russell and a younger brother, Donald, had been serving as newsboys since Ralph gave up the work. ' It was the first time Russell had ever left home and tho only clothing j he had with him was what he wore. A sister, Dorothy, said she didn't know whether he had any money or not but expressed the belief it couldn't be over a dollar. Mr. Donaldson, an employe of the Bell Telephone Company, said he wouldn't know until tonight what arrangements would be necessary to have tho boy returned home. I£ necessary, he said, he would go to Massachusetts but felt that he probably would be required only to forward money to pay his son's expenses, v Russell is one of five children. The others arc Mrs. Robert Trimbath ol Morrell and Ralph, Dorothy and Donald. His mother, who is blind, said she was anxious that her son come home at once. Latest information from Massachusetts indicated his condition is good. As soon as he is able to take normal nourishment--he must be led gradually because ol his lack of. food and water for art entire week--and gets sufficient rest, he will be as well as ever, it was said. PEABODY, Mass., Feb. 14.--When William Houlden broke the seal on a freight car consigned to a pottery firm, he was confronted by a pasty- faced apparition covered with yellow dust. '·Hoy, what are you doing heie?" demanded Houlden. "What town in Florida is this?" counteied the figure. "You're a long way from Florida," replied Houlden. "This is Peabody, Massachusetts." "My God," said the apparition. "I thought I was in Florida." With that the stowaway collapsed Three Local Pupils At Merceraburg Win Scholastic Ratings Three Connejlsville boys, ranking among the first eight of the senior class, have been awarded honor roll distinction for scholastic work during the first semester at Mercersburg Academy. High honors require average of at least 90 per cent, first group honor roll 85 per cent and second group honor roll 80 per cent. High honors were won by George Marakas, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gust J.

They drove to a restaurant and over a meal of soup, eggSj steak, bread, milk and pie, he identified himself as Russell C. Donaldson, 15, of Connellsville. Pa. On February 5 m Urichsville, Ohio, he said, he found two freight cars standing on a siding. One was billed to Florida and the other here. At midnight he returned, but got into the wrong car. The car, loaded with 15-inch sewer pipe, was sealed shortly afterward. For eight days, he rode cramped in a half-sitting, half-standing position without food or water. While young Donaldson was being treated at a hospital, police telephoned his lather, Charles, in Pennsylvania. "He's a good boy, but he got mad when I wouldn't let him go to see his girl friend every night of the week, and just left home,'' the father said. "I guess we have another Corrigan."
