OF FIRE LAWS
JOHN JOSEPH GAINES. MD,
SELDOM a week goes by that I
am not appealed to by people
with the well-known "Canker-sores"
small ulcers of stomatitis. They
occur anywhere within the buccal
cavity usually may be seen inside
the mouth, on the walls that touch
the outer surfaces of the teeth.
No description necessary but they
occur from size of a pin-head up
to large as a penny , never exactly
circular, unless when very small.
They are whitish, covered with
mucous nature doing all she can
to repair. We are asked to "touch
'em up with caustic," which is the
usual procedure. This doesn't cure
the condition causing them it just
gives us a stall for time, until the
digestive tract rights itself, I think.
The other day a young druggist
came into my office; he had a dis

I "touched 'em up" with 20 ni
trate of silver solution. I told him
as I have just told you it was
treating the symptom instead of the
simple ailment. "You've got plenty
of 'citro-carbonate' in the store,
haven't you?" I asked. "Sure," he
answered. "Then take three or
four doses a day, between meals
and at bedtime," was my direction.
The patches disappeared within
three days. The effervescing, alka
line mixture was easy to take, and,
with brief directions as to too
much greasy food; the cure was
neither difficult nor unpleasant.
Now had my patient been a farm
boy several miles away from the
drug store it would have been dif

buy a quarter's worth of Cream
Tartar and take a heaped, tea
spoonful in a glass of water, two
or three times a day.

THE HEART OF DAVID
WE KNOW that David solidi
fied his kingdom and made
it respected among the powerful
nations of that part of the world.
Let us pass by, then, the record
of his official life
and touch on two
incidents that re
veal his heart. It
was after one of
the, great battles
with the Philistines
when his little force
was surrounded, cut
off from supplies
ami even from wa
ter, that David,
worn out and thirs
ty, thought of the
clear pure water in jg
nis tamers wen
which had cooled his lips in boy
hood. His parched throat yearned
And David longed, and said,
Oh that one would give me
drink of the water of the well
of Bethlehem, which is by the
And the three mighty men
brake through the host of the
Philistines, and drew water out
of the well of Bethlehem, that
was by the gate, and took it,
and brought it to David: never
theless he would not drink
thereof, but poured it out unto
And he said, Be it far from
me, O Lord, that I should do
this: is not this the blood of
the men that went in jeopardy
of their lives? therefore he
would not drink it.
It is easy to understand why
men worshipped a leader like that.
The other incident occurred in
the campaign against his son Ab
salom, the boy whom he loved
more than all the world and who
repaid his love by organizing a re
volt and attempting to seize the

the boy was under no circumstanc
es to be killed, but the zeal of a
professional soldier was not to be
curbed by such an order, and word
was brought to the king that' Ab
salom was dead. The revolt was
broken, his throne was safe, he
could go back to the security of
the palace, but all meant nothing
The feelings of the monarch were
swallowed up in the heart-breaking
anguish of the father.

The faults of David are set forth
none the less clearly than his vir
tues; we feel the reality of him in
every line. Yet no catalogue of
his shortcomings can hide his es

in war, in administration and in
literature. He reorganized a gov

centuries as a single dynasty and

ADVERTISING DOES PAY
LENNOX, Pa. - Freddie Jones,
grade student, had read in his home
paper that it pays to advertise. He
was called upon by his teacher to
write a theme showing how we de
pend on the help of animals for
our existence, and how such ani
mals work for us. After much
labor he handed in his paper which
included the following paragraph.
"Consider the hen. She gives us
eggs. After she lays an egg she
cackles to tell the world about it.
Ducks lay eggs, too, but do not
cackle. So ducks' eggs, are not
worth near so much on the market
as hens' eggs."
