FIRST PROSECUTION MADE
THE HUMOROUS SIDE OF LIFF.
Undertaker Convicted and Fined for
Breaking Vital Statistic Law.
Roxboro, July 2. The first prose
cution and conviction under the new
Vital Statistics Law was made here
today. The Vital Statistics Depart
ment of the State Board of eHalth
brought charges of violation of the
new law against a local undertaker,
Mr. C. C. Critcher, for burying bodies
without a burial permit from the lo
cal registrar and for not furnishing
death certificates properly filled out.
The case was tried before Mayor Win
sted and the undertaker was convicted
and fined $5 and costs.
In explanation the representative
from the Board pointed out the value
need and importance of the new law.
He explained that the State Board of
Health was charged with its enforce
ment, and that if unenforced the re
sults obtained would be misleading
and worse than useless and the money
appropriated for this work wasted.
Thus far the Board has tried to deal
leniently with the undertakers, mid
wives, physicians and others having
to do with the enforcement of the new
law, but it is believed that ample time
has been allowed for every one to be
come acquainted with its provisions,
should be taken with offenders,
particularly malicious offenders. In
other words, there is a limit at which
and that hereafter vigorous action
"patience ceases to be a ' virtue." In
the opinion of the board that limit has
been reached and if a number of other
persons do not comply with the law
other prosectutions will shortly follow.
Sex Asserting Itself.
The woman teacher had a mixed
class of boys and girls. "I gave them
a dictation lesson," she said, "to see
how they would manage words which
are sounded alike and spelt different
ly. Would you believe that most ci
the girls spelt 'sail 'sale', and that
most of the boys spelt 'sale' sale :

Roger W. Babson says that in look
ing up appendicitis cases he learned
that in 17 per cent of the operations
for that disease the post-mortem ex
aminations showed that the appendix
was in perfect condition.
"The whole subject, he said, "re
minds me of a true tsory I heard in
London recently. In the hospitals
there the ailment of the patient, when
he is admitted, is denoted by certain
letters, such as 'T. B.' for tuberculosis.
An American doctor was examining
these history slips when his curiosity
was aroused by the number in which
the letters G' 0. K.' appeared. He
said to the physician who was show
ing him around:
