Neglected Colds Threaten Life.
(From the Chicago Tribune)
"Don't trifle with a cold," is
good r.u vice for prudent men and
women. It may be vital in the
case of a child. Proper food, cood
ventilation, and dry, warm clothing
arc the proper safeguards against
colds. If they arc maintained
through the changeable weather of
autumn, winter and spring, the
chances of a surprise from ordinary
colds will be slight. But the ordi
nary light cold win become severe
if neglected, and a well established
ripe cold is to the germs of diph
theria what honey is to the bee.
The greatest menace to child life
at this season of the year is the
neglected cold." Whether it is a I
ciiiki or auuit, the coid slight or
severe, the very best treatment that
can be adopted is to give Chamber

Fine Opportunity to Invest
The best opportunity to secure quick returns on a
small investment is in Liuutou, the thriving manufacturing
town cn the Willainmctc River opposite St. Johns.
Attracted by the deep water frontage several large
manufacturing plants have located here, and more arc to fol

have unsurpassed shipping facilities. This means additional
factories and homes.
