It centers around the life of Charles Lamb, the famous English v;riter. The time of the story is 1775-1834. Setting London, England.

The grc>. t kindness of Lajab is shown by his gentle Ccare of his sister who never wholly recovered from her affliction, Charles bogan writing inl796 and continu;d throughout his life. THE COXiON GOLD The common cold is the most frequent of all acute diseases. It is important for us to know that colds are contagious; thiit is, they can be transferred from one 'person to another. Colds are caused by germs. No one germ is responsible for producing them, however, th;;y are caused by any one of a great number of ^erras, or by several aiffereiit kinds or combinations. Colds of themselves are not fatal, but they pave the way by lowering body resistance for th. entry such as, those causing influenza, pneumonia, and tuberculosis. It is estimated that the average person has from three tef five colds a yea.r. Colds nay be classified under two headings: 1. Chest colds, those in which the bronchi and lungs are involved, 2. The head colds, in which the raucous memvrane of the mouth ncao.and throat are affected. Both types need careful treatment. Some ways by which colds may be prevented are the following: 1. Get plenty of sleep. 2. Sleep in a well ventilated room, 3. Eat well balanced meals. 4. Wear sufficient clothing, 5. Get plenty of fresh air, sunshine, anu exercise, 6. If you get wet or damp, change your clothing as soon as possible, 7, Don't put on half dry clothing. The best defense against colds is the building up and maintaining of body resistance. Cold germs do not orainarily thrive in healthy bodies. Most people knovj how to keep physically fit, but do not practice it. Carelessness causes us so much suffering, time, ana money. If we use our handkerchief over our mouth when we cough or sneeze, we will do our part in protecting others against the disease.
