OUR BLACK CLOUD
SUICIDE We family doctors "view with
alarm" even more frequently than
our crooked politicians do. How we
wish we could drive the blackest
of clouds away! Which is none
other than self-destruction.
I can think of no greater offense
to society than suicide. If we care
nothing more for ourselves, then
there are always some who care for
us we have no right to shock these
dear ones who love us. I have seen
a sorrowing mother bend over the
bier of a son who died by his own
hand! I hope I never may again.
Leaving out all technicalities, it
is plain WEAKNESS that submits
to the weapon of self-destruction.

fact, I believe no sane person will
commit suicide, though I cannot
prove it here. The inability to stand

Dissipation and wasting bodily
energy over unprofitable things pro
duces such weakness. Normal life
and living never does. Especially
does sexual extravagance, with in
dulgence of other harmful appetites
lead to collapse of everything good.
Living too fast brings one to the
end of the road sooner the wise
man is a good brakeman.
"Tired of life" is the usual excuse.
Remember, life is Just what we
make it This world and its ap
pointments are perfectly set for
the dwelling place of man; it could
not have been made better. It Is
almost a paradise. It is hunanity
that goes wrong, and "the wage of
sin is death." What sane Individual
can take his own life?
This is a case where there is no
cure; our only fight is for preven

This prevention is told In two sim
ple words: "Right living." It Is rot

house falls. Remember that, and
