8HVEK PNEUMONIA HELD BE SEASONAL DISEASE; PREVAILS IN INTER AUSTIN, Feb. 28.—(SpU— "Pneumonia Is a seasonal disease In that its Incidence and mortality are much Increased during wet, cold weather," according to Dr. George W. Cox, state health officer. Last week 234 cases of , • pneumonia were reported to the stato health department. The disease Is most prevalent and serious In urban centers where contact with people Is most frequent. Pneumonia Is always dan- V gerous but It Is especially so to persons In a run-down condition. This accounts for the number of cases following illness fr'om some other disease. The germs that cause pneumonia are spread by careless coughers, sneezers, spltters and objects they thus Infect. The first symptoms are usually a severe chill and fever, a very sick feel- Ing, loss of appetite, rapid breath- Ing and a heavy sensation In the chest. Sometimes ' coughing brings up blood from the Inflamed lungs. Any of these symptoms should be the signal for going to bed at once and sending 0- for your family doctor. The rules and prevention of other respiratory diseases apply o pneumonia. These rules should ecome personal habits and not put on, or off at times of prevalence or absence of disease. Fer- sons should avoid careless cough- ers and sneezers even If It means rudeness. Wash your hands thoroughly before each meal. Keep your hands, pencils, money and such objects away from your mouth and nose. Get plenty of fresh air day and night. Exercise and eat in moderation and wear clothing suitable for the weather. Pneumonia ranks second as a cause of death In Texas. In 1038 Jf.132 persons died of this disease. It should be remembered /that contagious and Infectious diseases cannot be decreased or eliminated without the co-operation of the people and this means the people who are sick with contagious and Infectious diseases should be Isolated and visited as little as possible by relatives and friends.

CLEMENTS ' Associated Progs Staff. Texans are not proud of their soil weevils, In fact the weevil s not even mentioned In some circles of society, but the biggest cotton farmer In the state, It cornered, will admit shyly that he has a few In his cotton patch. The weevil, you know, Is not a let. It eats the squares and bolls >f the cotton plant and since 1893 has been a thorn In the side of the cotton farmer. In some regions, the farmer has given up hope of killing the weevils off and his adopted the practice of growing enough cotton for both 'armor and weevil. Other places, the farmer just plants his cotton and trys to beat the weevil to It. Anyhow, the weevil, which came up from Central America and Mexico In 1893, Is a fixture of the cotton patch—or at least t was a fixture of the cotton patch until M. W. Dye of Seattle came along. Now Mr. Dye Is no Pled Piper of Weevlland. Mr. Dye, on the other hand, laughingly refers to himself as an amateur botanist. Standing among the daffodils, bluebonncts and orchids of the National Flower Show at Houston the other day, Mr. Dye announced he might have something —something that might rid the South of boll weevils. "What," queried a bunch of reporters, "have you that might clean out these pesky weevils?" "Flower," said Mr. Dye with- Ing blushing, "a flower that eats meat." Then he showed them a dar- llngtonla, a carnivorous plant that grows In the mountains of Oregon. The reporters gasped. They were dumfounded when the dar- ltngtonla ate a piece of hamburger meat from Mr. Dye's hand. "I do not know," went on the amazing Mr. Dye," whether my plant will cat boll weevils. They eat earwigs In Oregon and I suppose they will eat weevils." The Incredible botanist then suggested that he sic his meat eating plant on a weevil. Now the people of Texas and even the chambers of commerce admit there are weevils here but nobody carries them around In their pockets, so the reporters suggested Mr. Dye go to a cotton patch and try out his plant. He announced he would, provided the farmers will let him experiment. No reports on his experiment are available, but If his meat eating plant likes weevils and can stomach them, so to speak, Mr. Dye may go down In history of the South with General Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and others. Then, too, there Is this possibility, If the darltngtonla will eat boll weevils. The darltngtonla Is a pretty flower, Its bloom Is a brilliant crimson, lavender and purple. With the right amount of publicity and ballyhoo, the darllng- tonla may be made to rival the orchid as a thing of beauty— something milady often wears In her hair. Then Texas farmers could gel rich catching boll weevils and selling them up north as food for the darllngtonla,—the fairest flower of them all.
