Prompt action is neeued in many
of the affairs of life, but in no case
go urgently as with a disease like
tuberculosis. Every day's delay de-
creases the hope for cure. Anyone
is in danger of tuberculosis who has:
Cough that hangs on;
Too easily tired;

Consult a physician, if you have
any of these symptoms. Get a thor-
ough physical examination with bar-

that will provide assurance of safety.
An ordinary cold usually disap-
pears in a few days—if one lasts so
long as three weeks, it is suspicious.
It may be a sign of tuberculosis.

—There is an old saying that “ac-
tion is equal to reaction.” Every act
we perform reacts in some way.
There is a mutual dependency of
bur various parts. Every part is
concerned with and affected by all
the other parts.
Even though the brain presides
over all the rest of the organs, it,
too, is dependent on their successful
operation. Unless the food is prop-
erly digested and assimilated, unless
the blood carries away the poisons
and takes on the oxygen, the brain
is not nourished and stimulated to
do its kingly part.
The best brain food is the food
that best nourishes the body. When
the body is well kept the brain will
be cared for properly. Sleep, exer-
cise, good air, sunlight, rest, recrea-
tion and all the things that make
for physical health, make also for
a well-nourished brain and alertness

—The value of table salt for bath-
ing purposes is becoming widely
known and today, because of its an-
tiseptic = tonic effect, table salt is
more and more a part of the bath
jn thousands of homes.
! In country and athletic clubs, table
ult is regularly used for bathing
purposes. Athletes, before and af-
ter a contest, take salt baths under
8a shower. They wet the body and rub
the salt vigorously over the skin.
* The ancients knew the value of
suth baths, and the housewife of
today should take advantage of the
linowledge. It soothes the fatigued
mnscles that have been straining at
a tension all day in the home. Every
housewife knows that sensation. It
renews skin activity, invigorates
and refreshes, and best of all, it al-
lows the nerves to relax. The house-
wife steps from her bath feeling

Health authorities recommend
.salt bathing, using a box of salt to
a tub of water. It is equally good
‘for children, warding off many of
their little ills.
Most everyone has been bathing in
the ocean and knows the invigorat-
ing effect of salt water. That is
proof of the efficiency of a salt wa-
ter bath. Then the antiseptic qual-
ity is by no means trivial. Such
irritating but actual things as skin
gription are discouraged by salt wa-
Every bathroom should have a box
of salt at all times. You will find
many uses for it. Dentists advise
brushing the teeth daily with salt.
Salt eye washes help to clear away
eye infections and strengthens the
muscles of the eye. Nothing sur-
passes salt for a gargle.
—"People are prone to be some-
what careless regarding food pur-
chases. While it is true that the
canned products are sterilized before
sealing there yet remains by far the
bigger proportion of edibles that
lack any kind of protection,” said
Dr. Theodore B. Appel, Secretary of
“For example, in markets ready-to
-eat meats and fruits will often be
pawed over and handled. Patrons
in bake shops can frequntly be ob-
served rubbing their noses and
mouths and following it by touching
the goods offered for sale with un-
¢lean hands. Candies too are dis-
plaved in great quantities in win-
dows and on counters where they are
oft times reached by bugs, flies, dirt,
dust and even mice.
“The part played by flies and dirt
in disease spreading is too well
known to repeat. And most people
aleo realize that nearly all the com-
municable infections are disseminat-
ed bv a more or less direct contact
of individuals, by their discharges, or
hv the handling of common objects.
These facts should develon a full
stonificance of the necessitv for the
proner protection of all food that is
to be eaten in its raw state. Asa
matter of fact, common sanitary
practice dictates that foods. whether
to ha cooked or not, should not be
pramiscuously handled.

tor may finally pick him up.
~The turkey has a rather large
digestive system and long intestines,
accompanied by an ever-present ap-
petite, so that if birds are compell-
ed to satisfy this appetite on highly
concentrated foods, indigestion is
almost certain to result.
If this is not immediately reliev-
ed death will follow, and usually
salts or, better still, castor oil will
effect a cure.
Plenty of green food is essential
to young turkeys, such as alfalfa (if
quite tender), clover, lettuce, chop-
ped onion tops and dandelion leaves.
All green food supplid to turkeys
should be cut a little way up from
the ground to avoid black-head con-
tamination that may chance to lurk
in the soil.
—Nature intends the egg to hatch
a chick. To get the best food results
from eggs we have to defeat na-
ture’s purpose by producing infer-
tile eggs. A fertile egg is just as
good as an infertile one if it is
used at once, but it won’t hold up
under summer market conditions.
Sell or confine the roosters as
soon as the breeding season is ov-
er. The hens will lay just as well
without the male in the flock. Us-
ing early hatched cockerels is a good
breeding practice on the farms. Sell-
ing them as soon as your hatching
season is over saves a feed bill of
from 90 cents to $1:50 each. If you
have particularly valuable males,
confine them.
—It is difficult to be absolutely
sure of the sex of young turkey
poults. The males will usually
“shoot the red” and show develop-
ment of the fleshy growth on the
head a little sooner than the fe-
males, and they are also likely to
grow more rapidly than the females.

the females show the characteristic
white tips to the breast feathers
while the males will show dark tips.
—Short courses in agriculture,
dairy manufacturing, poultrying,
horticulture, aind cooperative mar-
keting once more will be offered at
the Pennsylvania State College this
fall and winter. Thousands of men
and women, unable to spend more
time in college, have found these
short periods of study profitable.
— Marketable types of vegetables
are best for exhibition, say veget-
able gardening specialists of the
State College. The specimens select-
ed should be uniform, of the best
quality and condition, and free from
injuries and blemishes.
—Potato growers are urged to be
cautious in buying their supply of
1930 seed from unknown dealers. It
is best to obtain seed from dealers
of proven reliability. Seconds, grown
on the home farm from first-year
disease-free stock, may be used as
seed next year.
—Keep the dairy heifers growing.
They will develop into larger cows
and better milk producers if not
stunted through short rations or
naglect during the period of growth.

purposes this fall, remember that

—When saving vegetables for ex-
hibition keep three or four timesas
much as will be used. A more rigid
selection can then be made later.
—Breeding, selection, and poultry
culture are employed by alert Penn-
sylvania poultrymen to meet the
shifting market demands for poultry
and eggs. To carry on heavy produc-
tion hens must have strong bodies
and a good supply of nourishing
feeds. : J :
—Dairy cows should always have
a rest period of 6 to 8 weeks before
freshening and be given plenty of
good feed during this important
period. More milk, greater profits,
and healthier cows will result.

—Sixty sweet corn demonstrations
conducted during the past season by
vegetable gardening extension spe-
cialists of the Pennsylvania State
College have proved several varieties
of corn superior to the kinds in
common use. Golden Bantam, con-

use from one to two weeks later
than several other varieties.

There is too much high pressure
salesmanship in modern hospitals
Dr. W. J. Mayo, noted surgeon, told
the convention of the American Col-
lege of Surgeons in Chicago.
“Hospitals are the victims of their
own super-salesmanship,” said Dr.
Mayo, head of the famous Roches-
ter, Minn., clinic. “Half the popula-
tion of the United States stands the
cost of hospitalization and nursing
which it can afford, if at all, only by
a great sacrifice.”
When the sensational nature of
Dr. Mayo’s speech became known,
every delegate to the convention
crowded into the room after he had
spoken a few minutes.
“Hospital super-salesmanship of-
ten places the patient in surround-
ings which are above his means and
have no value in the relief of con-
ditions from which he is suffering,”
Dr. Mayo said.
“My own experience has been that
a patient in a well-planned ward,
given a moderate degree of privacy,
will make a quicker recovery than
in a private room with two nurses.
“Many hospitals show too much
salesmanship and too little human-
“Hospitals must adopt better bus-
iness methods, whine less, and think
more. When the hospital is built it
should be with the common man in
mind and have fewer thrills and
show rooms.”
Hospital nurses, who have been
the chief target of criticism, said
Dr. Mayo, really are the ones tobe
sympathized with.
“If the sacrifice of the nurse insur-
ed her a competence, it would at
least be an amelioration,” he said.
“But as I have seen nurses at the
end of 20 years or more of hard and
conscientious service, tired and old
before their time, with small sav-
ings, . I have much sympathy for
Fellow surgeons lined up in accord
with the stand taken by Dr. Mayo
in interviews today. .
They reiterated his contention
that in some hospitals the patient
facing death worries less than the
one facing bills and condemned
false pride as a fault of the patient
and “super-salesmanship” as a fault
of the hospitals.
Dr. Stewart R. Roberts, of At-'
lanta, Ga., whose paper was read
before the gathering, declared the
hospital usually beats the physician
or surgeon to the patient’s pocket-
“If the patient in moderate cir-
cumstances, having: an income of
$5000 a year, has no thrift fund and
if his illness be long, the hospital
gets first chance at what funds there
are and the physician gets nothing,
or waits indefinitely,” Dr. Roberts
“Pride even in sickness,” he said,
“goes before a medical fall.
tional anxiety and love for the sick
person overwhelms every other con-
sideration and the family does not
come practical until the sickness is
over and the bills come in.”
Rev. A. M. Schwitalla, dean of the
medical college of the University of
St. Louis, also decried false pride in
“In well conducted hospitals,” he
said, “the average ward patient re-
ceives decidedly better care than the
average private patient, no matter
how rich the latter may be.”
Cancer, appendicitis and hernia,
three common causes for surgical
operations, engaged the attention to-
day of 3,000 delegates attending the
surgeons’ convention.
With the aid of talking motion
pictures and reports from famous
physicians, the delegates performed
figurative operations on many of
their own surgical problems in an at-
tempt to find better methods for
prolonging life and removing the
causes of pain.
Cancer drew the most attention,
partly because of its baffling nature
and partly because of the presence
at the meeting of Dr. James Hey-
man of the Royal Caroline Institute
in Stockholm.
Dr. Heyman suggested that can-
cer patients be centralized. Much
delay in solving the cancer enigma,
Dr. Heyman believes, is a result of
having patients scattered instead of
in one place where symptoms could
be studied comparatively.
Although he promised no cure for
cancer, Dr. Heyman and physicians
had obtained some success in arrest-
ing its development, sometimes for
as long as 15 years.
Talking motion pictures were ex-
hibited to trace the development of
hernia. from its first suggestion in
a child before it is born to its re-
pair on the adult by the surgeon's
knife. Movies were hailed asa boon
to carrying newer methods of sur-
gery to doctors who are out of touch
with big clinics and universities.
Another film showed a close-up of
an operation for the removal of the
Prof. D. P. D. Wilkie, of Edin-
burgh, Scotland, described the high
death rate in appendicitis operations
to the fact that too many patients
wait until pain from an infected ap-
pendix drives them to a physician.

—Afternoon tea for the nation’s
workers has become good business.
Scores of manufacturers and mer-
chants throughout the country have
begun the practice of speeding up
flagging production by recourse to
the tea cup, according to a report of
the Tea Association of the United
“America borrowed
mixing tea and business from the
English,” the report says. “In com-
mercial and manufacturing circles in
England, afternoon tea time comes
as regularly as the sun rises. Tea
drinking during office hours is a part
of the daily routine among all classes
of workers and business people.
“In this country the idea is grad-
ually acquiring popularity. Some of
the larger manufacturing plants
have experimented with the effect of
tea drinking on their employes. Tea,
they found, not only refreshes their
workers, but relieves fatigue.
