ILL. — iAP> — A sharp increase in the, incidence of scarlet fever in Illinois was reported by the state health department which announced • 12S new cases were discovered last week. Dr. Roland R. Cross, state health director, said last week's total represented an increase of 68 per cent over the number of cases reported for the previous week. The total number of. scarlet fever cases reported in the state to date this year was 10.195. well-under the 18.430 reported during the comparable periad~6f 1040: " However, Dr. Cross said In a message to local health officers that "It appears the summer's respite from respiratory infections may be ended." He advised local health..workers to keep school authorities advised of disease prevalence and to ac- land been ploration by use of the camera, the electric light and n physician's Ingenuity. Visual evidence of this was offered before the convention of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and OtoUryngology. Delegate* were shown motion pictures in color of the upper part of the Pharynx, the heretofore hidden region back of the nose which medical men have dubbed a no-man's land. The-natural-color films,-described as the first ever taken of the epi- pharynx, arose from the development by Dr. S. Eugene Dalton of Atlantic City. N. J., of an instrument he has named a self-retaining illuminating palate retractor. The instrument, a shaft of metal, plastic or hard rubber which extends far back into the mouth, is so devised that the palate 1* held forward and upward, permitting the filming of the once-hidden region. The pictures (tre obtained through use of an electrically illuminated tube which floods the upper pharynx Trtth Hghtr^That-reglon is reflected on mirrors and the image is photographed. Dr. Dalton. who is chief broncho- scopist of the Atlantic City hospital, told the academy "I.hope use of this instrument will act as a stimulus to erase that enigma, 'no-man's land,' and eventually lead us into a more complete knowledge of the epipharynx. especially the prevention and cure of deafnexs of children due to diseases of the Eustachian tubes." The instrument not only is an aid for observation and diagnosis, but also can be used to illuminate the area in event of surgery.

Wtten YOU secure CREDIT you really ask for a loan without interest or security except the pledge of your word that the account will be promptly paid. CREDIT RATINGS are a true picture of the way your bills have been met. The rating you have established determines whether or not further credit may be granted. True enough, hard luck may overtake the best of us, but that does not prevent meeting our creditors and making a new and definite arrangement to pay them. ,3 We appeal to every resident of Sterling-Rock Falls and its trade territory to sincerely try to keep his credit good by paying all bills promptly. In that way he shows appreciation for the faith creditors had in his honesty at a time when the accommodation was most needed. Prompt payment of bills will create a good credit rating in our files, which is of untold value to every individual. JUUUOIT OF THE CtEPfT STMUMIH OF OUR HESlERS' •OOSWTS Wil i£ MDE SOCi.
