K. L. Batch of Laxingtoa was
knocking about tho court housa for
short tirat Monday aftarnoon. W
understood he was contemplating
making his declaration to become a
eitlien, or something of that sort; It
may have been that he only desired
to change his registration end get
lined up to rota at the coming pri
maries, for all these long years Karl
has been an ardent prohibitionist and
always registered as such, and this
year his party is out of business, in
this county at least and if he does
not change his registration he will
have no vote coming until someone
else has said whom ha shall vote for.
There may be a number of others sim
ilsrly situated, and they should do as
Mr. Beach is doing and get in line
to vote at the primary.
Fheriff McDuffee was down in the
north end of the county Tuesday
where he assisted Traffic Cop IJeu-
alien in landing a few of the speeders
along the Columbia highway. Mr.
McDulfee states that the renuilt mac
adam in the north end of Morrow
county is now a beautiful piece of
work. The new filler used as a bind
er is perfect and the surface of the
highway is just like pavement. The
road ia widened to 20 feet and this
is also a great Improvement in pro
viding for the traffic. The temptation
to speed over this piece of highway
seems irresistable and the traffic cop
Is picking up a lot of violators and
will land more as the traffic increases.

There are poisons that are develop
ed within the body. The life processes
produce poison aa by-products. The
liver destroys these poisons and the
skin, lungs, kidneys, and bowels elim
inate them. These poisons csuse old
age and eventually death. Were it
possible to insure perfect elimination
we might live indefinitely. It is there
fore important that elimination be
promoted by efficient kidney, action,
regular bowel movements, and an ac
It is not alone Important to elim
inate the poison produced within the
body, but it is just as important to
keep out of the body poison from out
side. Drugs, self-administered as
medicine, and habit forming drugs
re imnortant causes of physical Im
pairment. The type of self-medica-
tinn whlen la particularly nnii-
is the taking of headache powders,
which in no instance effect a cure of
the underlying cause. The abuse of
nun-stives and laxatives is another
type of poison.
However, the most common form 01
ooiionine is infection. Infections are
due to the growth In the body of min
ute animal or vegetable ionns
monly known as germs. Infections
enter the body through the skin and
.-in, membranes. These germs are
carried from person to person and the
diseases which they cause are xnown
as "catching." Most of these germs
develop in the body and leave by way
of the discharges. Mouth sprays,
snaeting, coughing, and kissing may
convey the Infection to others. In
fected persona and carriers may
through their discharges infect wa
ter, food, and eating utensils. Infec
tion is spread by unclean hands and
promiscuous expectorating. Water
supplies are infected by aewage.
Avoid infection by keeping away
from congeated placea during epidem
ice. Keep away from persons who are
sick with acuta Infection. Know that
the persons who are handling your
food are not "disease carriers." Use
no water or milk that is not care
fully safeguarded by the health de
partment. Milk that Is not properly
pasteurised may contain dangerous
germs. There is danger of infection
from germs in swimming pools that
are not constantly filtered and chem
Although most healthy people's
germs are not disease gernaa and are
therefor harmless to v-her people,
it is hard to tell when oven healthy
people may get dissaso germs from
some on else. Try not to let other
people paaa on their germs to yon, es
pecially if they have any fever, mea
ales, etc. Persons having on them
or in them, germs of communicable
disease, must be controlled. To do
this properly means intimate atten
tion and aupervision of infected per
sons by health authorities who know
their business and do nothing else.
Do not allow poiaon or infection
to enter your body.
