Answer to Question No. 1
Epileptics can now be greatly
helped, and some cured. With the
newer drugs certain types of
epileptics can have the period be
tween the attacks materially
lengthened, and sometimes the
attacks completely eliminated.
The epileptic child needs, besides
drugs, the sympathetic care and
understanding of parents and all
others with whom he comes in
contact. Because of the continued
advance made in treatment, in
dividuals afflicted with this dis
ease should keep in close touch
with their physicians.
Answer to Question No: 2:
Hookworm (ankylostomiasis) is
usually found in warm climates,
especially where sanitation is poor
and where people walk around
barefooted. There have been
about 15 to 16 thousand cases re
ported annually in the United
States during recent years, mostly
in our southern states. Improved
sanitation and better living con
ditions can eradicate the disease.
Answer to Question No. 3:
Severe pain, usually limited to
one side of the head, is the typical
discomfort of a migraine head
ache. This pain is often accom
panied by vomiting and general
prostration and will last any
where from a few hours to several
days. Medical treatment is now
combined with psychiatric care
of the patient’s personality. A
great deal has been done by med
ical science to relieve the dis
comforts of migraine. Complete
success in dealing with these
headaches has yet to be realized.

payroll, 1915 . . .
A payroll sheet of Camp 6, Coos
Bay I number company, month of
March, 1915, has turned up at the
bottom of the old woodbox in my
boompond shack. This box, by the
way, was built of 2x8s to hold knots
•nd chunks for a Penobscot heater
in one half, and tools and gear in the I
ether half. I thought I’d dredged it
when I switched to an oil stove. But
the other day I finally scraped to
the bottom of the woodbox, and looked
through two bottom books page by !
page, and so found the 1915 payroll !

of “Cruden's Concordance” and a 1907

So the imagination of an old story
writer goes to work on something
like the finding of this 1915 payroll
sheet. Then it comes down to sharper
focus. How did the sheet get sep
arated, torn out from the payroll
book, and why was it given long, hard
use in moving around until it came
to rest in the pages of an atlas that
eventually reeched my hands?
Would there be a clue on a map in
the 1907 atlas? The map of Wash
ington showed the most use and had
a number of notations, both in pencil
and ink, around Puget Sound. Buried
treasure? Was it murder? Come in,
