PACE" TWETITTWO 66 THE BORDER CITIES STAR, WINDSOR, OXTARIO, TfEDSESDAT, NOVEMBER T. 134: Keep Stiff Upper Lip99 Good Advice, Says Virginia Over-Dosage Big Danger With Drugs Habituation Is Another Peril of Home Treatment IDIOSYNCRACY Many Cause Disagreeable Symptoms When Used Too Much By Logan Clendening, M.D. Besides the fact that the eelf-doser is likely to treat a serious disease with the idea that it is trivial, to which I have called attention this week, there are other dangers about drugs. One is the danger of over-dosage, another the danger of habituation, and another the danger of drug idiosyncrasy. Of course, the latter two occur even when physicians prescribe drugs, but overdosage is not likely to occur under a physician's directions. I do not refer so much to over-dosage in a single dose as to the consequences which might occur from using a drug over a long period of time until saturation occurs. CAUSE SKIN RASHES There are a great many drugs which cause disagreeable symptoms when used In this way. Mostly they produce sldn rashes. A case in point Is that of bromides. A great many people will be taking what they thlnlc is a nerve medicine, and find that they are broken out with an ugly rash on the legs or face, which Is due to the bromides in the nerve medicine. Other drugs which are frequently used and which skin eruptions are quinine and phenolph-thaleln, which Is used as a cathartic, especially In candied cathartic tablets. Habituation is. of course, likely only with a few drugs, and those which are not likely to be prescribed by the patient himself but by a phy-Vlcian. In other words, the narcotics such as opium, morphine and its derivatives, cocaine, etc. There is some difference of opinion among physicians as to whether sleep-producing drugs such as luminal, veronal, etc.. are habit-forming. My own experience is that they are not. or only very slightly, or only in those people who have a peculiarly susceptible nervous system. FOUND IN MANY Idiosyncrasy is found in many people to quite a few drugs. In this situation the people who are suscep- .tible. even if they take only a very small dosage, will become ill. A case 'in point is aspirin, to which a very small proportion of the population is extremely sensitive. I have known rases in which as little as half a grain cf aspirin would produce asthma and swelling of the tongue and a very serious general condition. This occurs, as I say. in only a small proportion of the population, and anyone who has ever taken as much as five grains of aspirin without having any disagreeable symptoms from it, la entirely safe to take quite large doses.

He turned it down, "because I thought we would win." BEAUTY CHATS With GLADYS GLAD Famous Ziegfeld Follies Beauty GLADYS CLAD nrHE charming Julie Haydon, who was recently annexed by pictures for starring purposes, has a figure any gal would envy. Julie, however, is not like the average lass. Instead of trying to keep weight down, Julie has to see to it that she does not lose weight. And for this purpose, she consumes large quantities of milk. For she firmly believes that milk is an excellent thing to consume for nutritive purposes. Dieticians claim that 'every Individual should consume at least a pint of milk every day, for the protective mineral elements that this beverage provides. And for underweight individuals, the consumption of milk is of especial Importance. For milk really does possess a great deal of nutritive value. Of course, some women claim that they find milk difficult to digest, or that it tends to have a constipating effect on them. But usually, that's because they don't know how to drink milk properly. In the first place, milk should always be sipped, and not gulped. If it is gulped down, it tends to form curds in the stomach. In the second place, milk should not be consumed when it is extremely cold. For if the milk is too cold, it tends to chill the stomach, and this also Interferes with digestion. As a matter of fact, it is a good plan to warm the milk before drinking it, for in this form it is much more easily digested. Women who are trying to gain weight should, in addition to imbibing large quantities of milk, drink the juice of four oranges each day. This amount of fruit juice is sufficient to counteract any constipating effects that the milk might have. Some girls claim that they can't drink milk because they dislike its flavor. But that's really a small matter, for it is very simple to disguise the taste of milk. There are any number of chocolate and differently flavored preparations on the market that, when combined with milk, give it a delightful taste. And in Europe, a favorite standby of underweight individuals is a drink composed of half milk and half ginger ale. The ginger ale is said to make the milk much more easily digested, and at the same time, flavors it deliclously.

Septuagenarian Aids Only Orphans Millionaire Gives to Them Rather Than To Old Folks EDMONTON. Alta., Nov. 7. Millionaire "orphans' friend" J. D. O Connell, recently visited Edmonton during his annual 50, 000-mile tour of all America. He inspected the orphans' institution here which bears his name and. as well, looked into some of his financial interests, including real estate and wheat lands. Mr. O'Connell would not give anything to Homes for the Aged, he announced. He himself is a septuagenarian. "Well, they've had their opportunities, and their lives, and apparently wasted them. Oh, I have nothing against the old folks I'm just a lot more interested in orphans: the boys and girls who, if given a chance today, will be the grown people who run this world next year. They've got to have their chance. "That's my life work that and fighting the booze traffic. You can't make that too strong; the language, I mean. That's the one thing that I'm more interested in than I am even In providing funds for orphans." $ . . rni nATPQ wanes rtu mue uxydltushUe . . . IT KEEPS MY TEETH SO WHITE !

In an address made by Hon. Arthur Sauve, postmaster-general, under the auspices of the Association des Femmes Conser-vatrices. The intelligent mother, alive to her political duties and well-informed as to the history of her country and the political happenings of the day, could have a great influence, said Mr. Sauve. through the education of young people politically.

Gaillardia Is Named for Man Annual and Perennial Varieties; Blossoms Like Daisies By DEAN HALLIDAY HPHE Gaillardia is such a very bright, handsome flower, that it really should be seen in more gardens. Like so many of our plants, it is named for a man. In this case a French patron of botany. Mons. Gaillard. As with larkspurs, lupines, poppies, and many other kinds of plants, there are both annual and psrennial varie ties. The blossoms are daisy-like m form, and the colors are bright red and yellow. The annuals are general ly red and very double, similar to carnations. The perennials are single. and some varieties have tubular flowerets bordering the edges. The plants grow about two feet high and bloom from early summer until late fall, even after a quite hard frost. They produce long-stemmed flowers which are fine for cutting, and that will keep fresh for days in water. Gaillardias prefer full sunlight and a poroufi well-drained soil. Seeds should be sown early in the spring. where they are to remain, the young plants being thinned out to stand about a foot apart. They are very easily raised, the seed germinating in seven or eight cays. The perennial clumps should be divided every three years to insure good bloom.

Mrs. John Howard of Highstrest, Shoeburyness, is so proud of the fact that she and her husband, now aged 83 and 88, have been married 65 years that she wants everybody to know how it is done. "Not many folks getting wed these days will have a 65th anniversary. she said to an interviewer, "and what is more lots of them would hate to think that their marriages would last so long." Her recipe for wives desiring pes- manency is; don t gad about; give your husband good square meals, a man likes to be well fed; rely less on next-to-no-time cooking. "what girls want," Mrs. Howard concluded, " is more Home Rule. All my nine children were disciplined." Deserted by Sweetheart, Finds Another, But He Likes Someone Else By Virginia Lee In spite of everything, life really is what we make it. I heard the other day of an old lady, 82, who was limping along with a stick. 'I broke my hip a while ago," she said, when someone was trying to help her. How fortunate you are that you recovered enough to get out again," said her helper. "No, I'm not," she sadly said. "It would have been much better if I had died. No one wants a lame old woman around whom they have to help all the time." I knew another old woman who spent her last years with a devoted daughter. Every thing that daughter did to please her mother was misunderstood. And the old lady spent many hours in tears when she could have been so happy if only she had been so minded. CANT ALWAYS BE HAPPT Of course I do not believe that we can always be happy. I know better. There are many, many times in the course of a long life when sorrow and worry and care are our close companions, but we can make the best of things "keep a stiff upper lip", as a man who Is getting along in years and who, for the first time in his adult life, is facing poverty, hardly knowing where the next meal for him self and wife is coming from. fays. Such cases are pitiful, but the gal lantry with which they are met gives one a great thrul. SHOULDER was deserted by her boy friend find felt very bad about it.

Woman 94 Calls Modern Living Rather Foolish TRURO, N.S., Nov. 7. "The young people of today are living a little fool ishly." was the most censorious pro nouncement on the rising generation that Mrs. George W. Kennedy, native of Stewiacke. N. S.. would make when interviewed by the press on her ninety - lourtn birthday. The aged lady gave as her recipe for a long life, "work hard, eat and drink in moderation, early to bed and early to rise." She is opposed to excessive drinking and excessive smoking. young man. and moreover. Shoulder has grown so fond of the youth that she cannot bear the thought of giving him up. What should she do. tell him that his case with the other girl is hopeless? Continue going with him and say nothing, or give him up before she gets too fond of him? She feels that the latter course is selfish, as he needs her. Of course all your Inclinations are for a continuation of the friendship, now. Shoulder, as you hope whether you acknowledge it or not that he will grow as fond of you as you are of him. If you are sure the girl said the things about him that you say you heard she did. it might be well frankly to tell him, so that he won't cherish false hopes. Although, of course, he may not believe that she said them. STAND THE SHOCK It is Just as fair for you to leave him now. after his frank statements, as for him to desert you later on when, or if, the girl comes back to him. If you feel that you can stand the shock better than he, keep on going with him. It will show your unselfishness. But better expect him to leave you eventually and train yourself to get along without him. - If he has any sense, however but who has when they are in love? he will let himself grow to love you and forget about the one who jilted him.
