Even, more tragically, a large percentage of deaths were children, elderly persons and invalids who had been left alone for just a few minutes. The chief causes of fires, in order of the toll taken, were: (1) Smoldng (2) Electrical liquids (7) Suspicion of arson (8) Chimneys and flues. (9) Lightning (10) - Spontaneous ignition. . . • • TOTAL LOSS The total fire loss in .1970 was an estimated $2,800,000,000. (No misprint—that's two billion, eight hundred million dollars.) :Now for some tips that could save-your .life: —Be sure your cigaret is out. Matches 'too. And never leave matches or lighters .-within the electrical outlets with too many appliances. Don't run cords under rugs or over radiators where they may get damaged. And replace a cord if it is frayed. —Never leave small children alone in the house.

It can happen suddenly, while using a dust mop or bending over for something, and can be uncomfortable for a week or more. Then perhaps several months later with no warning it .happens again. My trouble always comes in the same place, just below the waist line. ' Why should this be and . what treatment do you recom- mend?—K.E.N. If you ever • studded an anatomical chart of the muscles of the back, that would explain some of it. The muscles are criss-crossed, and at angles, with one set of muscles balanced against another, so that movement, though it seems simple to us, is really a matter of tightening one set of muscles while relaxing another. j MUSCLE STRAIN Back pain usually is the result of muscle strain. While there are many causes of back pain, about 80 per cent ajre muscular. When we're young and lim- iber, and all our muscles are in use quite frequently (you've seen the outlandish, contortions that kids get into!) it takes a.lot of strain on a muscle before it goes into spasm. When we're older, we fall into patterns of movement, and some muscles don't get much use. Put a strain on such a muscle, and it doesn't take much to make it rebel, tighten up and give us a backache. Add' to that the changes that come as we grow older. Some degree of arthritis, or thinning of the discs in the spine, or a curvature or other faulty alignment of the spine can put extra strain on a muscle, or make us habitually "favor" certain muscles until an unusual movement or position causes spasm. Obesity is a very common factor in such back pains. Less' i.Cll,L\J^ All LIUOH Mfc*wifc j»—„. —— • common but worth considering and' often overlooked is a shortening of one leg. A half inch can throw the back out of kilter with certain bending motions. But a heel lift can correct it. A strain while dust-mopping can be because twisting of the back exerts a particular type of strain, just as bending forward and reaching (as when making a bed) is a greater strain than bending. In picking up I movements. things, squatting and using the leg muscles causes less strain than bending at the waist. Tricks like that can prevent a lot of recurrent back troubles. REST IMPORTANT For an acutely stretched muscle, rest is important—I don't mean bed rest, but avoidance of further strain. Some support (girdle or corset) helps. So may a bed board between mattress and spring, to prevent sagging. Heat (hot packs, infra-red lamp, etc.) can help relax a muscle. Sometimes ice packs relieve pain. Aspirin is enough for most strains; in severe ones, muscle relaxants or stronger pain-relievers may be needed. There are many types of exercises for back muscles, because there are so many muscles and so many possible Bee's WAX EYE BROW ARCH $2.00 Perm.
