A delightful book, American Folk Medicine, written by Clarence Meyer, has just been published by Thomas Y. Crowell Co. In it Mr. Meyer points out how folk medicine survives in many parts of the United States, highly progress: He illustrates that "simple kitchen products, garden vegetables and well-known botanicals such as caraway and fennel seed, chamomile flowers, sage, rosemary, dandelions and spices" have a place among the home remedies still found active use. It is astonishing how many remedies have, after many decades, been shown to h a v e some real scientific validity.. In 1862, Dr. J. C. Gunn wrote "Th'e best thing I have ever known to scatter the swellini and subdue the inflammation o inflamed breasts is the applica tion of a mink skin -- a fresl one is best, but a dry one wil do by being softened in warm water." The basis for this is the fac that the mink skin retains mois ture and warmth, and serve as a long-acting compress. For a common cold it suggested, "Before retirin drink a . cup of hot water sweetened with brown sugar an rum." Today we would call tha a hot toddy, and not bad fo a cold. Some of the remedies scmn more amusing than meaningfu "Slice a few onions and bo .em in a pint of new milk.; tir in a sprinkle of oatmeali nd very little salt. Boil until; onions are tender. Then sup* jpidly and go to bed." It was; [ought that onions would drivs; way a cold. ; To- control fever: "Four; unces of galangal root in a* uart of gin, steeped in a warm! lace; take often." : CHEST COLDS For chest colds: "A flannel; ag, wrung out in boiling water; nd sprinkled with turpentine,; aid on the chest, gives the; greatest relief." Or, "Rub th :hest and throat with skunk's.' iil. It penetrates and relieves; congestion." . " ; For bites: "Centipede or, corpion bites, apply ammonia.; higger bites, use butter; hickened with salt.. Ant bites,; eau de cologne . F o r bee . orj vasp sting, apply honey." Â· For asthma: "The oil of. pose is a good remedy but the' 'Gathers are very hurtful tdC :hose who lie upon them." ; For corns: "Thrusting the tos; Mo a lemon, to be kept oil overnight, %yill make the removal ot a corn easy." Haven't Americans been truly ingenious in the creation of their folk remedies?

East covers dummy'? queen with the king and yoi win with the ace. . There is a strong 'emptatiot to play a club to the queen at this point - since your mosl promising suit is clubs - bu it is best to resist that tempta tion. East might win the queen with the ace and return a spade, thus putting the contrac in danger if it turned out tha he clubs were divided unfavor- bly. ! As a matter ot fact, if you 'lay a club, at trick two in the actual hand, you eventually lilt- sh down one. ., It is far better to play a diamond to the jack at trick two and then lead a low club from dummy. If East has the ace and plays it, ten tricks become certain, while if West has the ace he can do you no harm vhatever he returns. After winning the club with :he jack at trick three, you must continue to guard against he danger of East's gaining tlm ead. Abandoning cluhs. you play a diamond to the queen and return a low heart from dummy. This is sure to tie East into a knot again, if he has the ace. 'or if he plays it you have nina tricks, while if he plays the nina instead, you remain on ah- rolutely firm ground. You win the heart with the king and finally establish your ninth trick by reverting to clubs. The strategy employed herjs is called avoidance play. Declarer arranges matters sa that the dangerous defender '-- irr this case East - cannot plav his high card, if he has if, except at the cost of a vital trick. Played this way, t h ' e contract is made against any lia of the cards.
