Smith, Connellsvilie, from further incaiccr- ation at the Muncy State' Industrial Home where she was sentenced after conviction on an abortion charge. Mrs. Sm:th was taken .into custody by State police for having performed an aboi-tion April 23, 1938, which resulted in the death o£ Mabel K. Miller, Connellsville, in the hospital at that place. Before she died, the victim signed a declaration in which she accused Mrs. Smith"ot Having performed the illegal operation. Found guilty at June criminal sessions, Mrs. Smith was sentenced by Judge H. S. Dumbauld to serve fiom two to four years at the industriEil home at Muncy. Attorney Wade K. Newell has been asked by relatives and friends to prepare the petition for pre.-,cntutioii before the State Board of Pardons, seeking to have the woman iclcascd from custody to be near her son. The boy, only 11 years of age, is in serious condition from sugar diabetesi and had been a patient in Connellsville State Hospital. The mother has not been informed of the precarious illness of her -son nor of the necessity lor hospilallzation. The boy, unable to understand his mother's continued absence, is persistent in his calJs for her and has repeatedly asked to be "taken to her, Attorney Newell said. ': It is because of this 'complication and inability to fully explain the mother's absence to the lad that hope is held out a petition to the pardon board may result in arrangements whereby Mrs. Smith can return to take care of her son in his illness'.

D. THE SINUSES of the nose arc very intricate antechambers which drain into the nose itself. BCWK lined with mucous membrane, they very easily become infected. This infection may be acute, in which case it is simply like a common cold, or it may become chronic. I get a good many lotters asking: about imua dfSeaae, about its cause and whether or not it can be cured. The answer to the latter question depends on what kind of sinus trouble is present and what sinus is involved. Nobody can answer the question dogmatically because it requires an examination by an experienced nose ar.d throat man to de- Blackwell Dies In Electric Chair By United Press. BELLEFONTE, Kr'j 28.--William McKmley Blackwell, 46-yeai-old Whitaker Negro, walked calmly to his death in the electric chair at Rockview Penitentiary Monday for the murder of his common-law wife and the man he accused of "fooling around" with her. The husky Negro slayer started the "last mile" from his cell to the white- v.-alle'd execution chamber at 12:30 A. M. Two guaids walked at his side, but the condemned man's step never faltered. He was strapped in tiie chair at 12:31 A. M., and four minutes later was pronounced dead by Dr. W. J. Schwartz, prison physician. Blackwell was executed for the I fatal shooting of Eleanor Edwards i and Richard Parker during an argu- I ment over payment for a second- UNIONTOWN, Feb. 28.--A testi- j hand icebox which Blackwell had monial dinner honoring William C.

PBOGKA3I JOE E. BROWN F L I R T I N G WITH FATE" F / tcrmme the type and location of the infection. Not only the nose itself should be examined by a pood light and by the X-ray, but the entire body should be cone over because many cases of sinus disease arc systemic in nature. Diabetes, high blood pressure and kidney trouble rnny predispose to sinus infections and keep them going once they »rc start cd. Sinuses Inrolved The sinuses which may be involved are the maxillary sinuses, just underneath the cheek bones; the frontal minuses, above the eyes; the aphenoidal and ethmoidal sinuses, which are the spongy ramifications in the back of the nose. The symptoms are discharge either of watery or a purulent secretion, the discharge of scabs, pain or headache (this occurs if there is an accumulation of pus in the sinus), ver tigo sleeplessness, coujrh and fa- tlgrue. The eyes may ha affected either by pressure pain or gradual partial blindness due to compression of the optic nerve. Disturbances in smell are frequent. In treatment, general measures to increase the immunity of the body, such as the uae of vitamins A, B and D, exercises/propcr clothing, avoidance of chill, are all valuable. Local applications of cphedrine or colloidal silver, or of electrical treatment by diathermy, will often give complete relief. The important thing is to keep the sinuses drained. "Good ventilation and free, uninterrupted continuous drainage" was the motto of treatment advocated by Dr. Herbert Tilly, of London. Home Treatment A great deal of the local treatment can be carried out by tho patient himself at home. By this is meant nasal douching. When conservative measures have failed, surgery must bo considered. Deviations of the septum of the nose should be straightened so as to promote drainage; small growths such as polyps should be removed, and other methods of promoting drainag-e are indicated. The most radical surgery aims to eliminate the mucous membrane of the sinus entirely. This, however, is an operation of last resort and should be used only after all other methods have failed. On the whole, it may be said that the treatment of sinus disease in proper hands is quite hopeful, and there is little reason for many cases dragging on indefinitely in a state of chronic invalidism. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS S. S.: "What about arthritic tuberculosis?" Answer: Tuberculosis attacks the joints second in frequency to the lungs. The joints most often affected are those of the spine and of the knee, but any joint can be affected. It most frequently occurs in childhood. The child with a tuberculosis of the spine will usually complain of pain, will walk in a peculiar stiff-backed manner, and will also assume special postures designed to relieve pressure on the affected vertebras. It is often insidious and may be overlooked for some time. Treatment for all forms of tuberculosis arthritis is satisfactory.
