Don't Give Him Whiskey.
Don't give a man whiskey when
he is overcome by the heat. It is
one of the last things to be adminis-
tered.in a case of sunstroke. When
the skin is dry and hot, as is fre
quently the case, hold the head up
and pour cold water on it. If the
water is pouredj from a height o
seyeral feet so much the better.
Then get a physician on the spot as
quick as you can. But don't give
the patient whiskey, unless under
instructions from a physician.

ment. The car left Wallace yester
