DON’T KILL PAIN WITH DRUGS.
Saareh Foe l Cass# or>d Hovo That
Of all the sentinel* that watch to
give warning that something within
our bodies has gone wrong, pain is
the most assiduous, although its im
portance is frequently overlooked
by physicians as well as laymen.
Pain is simply an expression of re
bellion against objectionable stim
uli; therefore, however desirable it
may be to get rid of, it is far more
important to find and cure its
The old time family doctor’* first
thought when called to a patient in
pain was to smother it by means
of powerful drugs. This was some
times useful in tiding a patient over
a short illness, which was bound to
right itself, but it was worse than
useless in chronic uilment because
it substituted for the malady in
question a far worse disease—name
ly, the opium habit. It was exactly
as though a railroad inspector on
finding a red lantern on the track
should throw a coat over it and go
on his way. The patient was satis
fied when the pain was lulled, but in
this an important danger signal was
disregarded and nature’s call for
permanent relief remained unan
In appendicitis, for instance, it
used to be the custom to “kill pain”
by administering large doses of
morphine. We now know that this
dulls the patient’s senses to a de
gree which makes diagnosis of peri
tonitis or other complications im
possible and that a life may be lost
because one of the most important
symptoms is masked by drugs. It
is interesting also to note how pain
in appendicitis sets up a reflex ac
tion of tho abdominal muscles. The
muscles become hard and “bonrdy,”
nature attempting to hold the ap
pendix as if in a splint so that fur
ther injury limy be impossible and
conditions favorable to repair may
obtain.—New York World.
Kaffir Swimming Feats.
Tbe Kaffirs are great swimmers.
They can do things in tho wuter
which other folk would look upon
with astonishment. For example,
a Kaffir boy can ford a stream
shoulder high, running as swiftly
as if shot from a torrent. Tbe way
they acomplish the feat is thus:
Just before entering the water they
got a huge stone, sometimes as
heavy ns themselves, and with the
help of a companion place it upon
tho head. A weight like this gives
the boy balance, and he can kocp
his footing against the heaviest
stream. If he were to drop tho
stone be would be so light that the
water would sweep him off his feet.
And this is just one of tho Kaffir
tricks against tide and flood.—Lon
There was a suburban lady whose
house one summer was quite over
run with moths. A tramp told her
that in return for a square meal he
would give her an infallible moth
cure. She set a square meal beforo
the tramp, lie devoured it, then
“All ye need to do, ma’am, is to
hang yer moth filled clothes and
carpets and things on a line and
beat ’em with a stick. Goodby to
yer moths then.”
“Will that kill them?” asked the
“Yes, if ye hit ’em,” said the
A Polished Diplomat.
“Did you see anything that par
ticularly struck your fancy when
you were looking around the furni
ture shops todwy?’’ asked u young
husband of his bride on her return
from a tour of furniture inspec
“Yes,” she replied, “1 saw some
thing exceedingly pretty in look
“1 have no doubt you did,” he
observed, “if you looked into them ”

peace rests upon that home.

What The Farmer Did
A city man recently visited his
“country cousin”. The man fiom
th' 1 city wishing to explain the
joys of metropolitan life, said:
“we have certainly been having
un the last few days. Thuisday
we autotd to the country dab,
and golled until dark, then trol
lied back to town and danced until
morning.” The country cousin
was not to be stumped in thele st,
so began telling of some of the
pleasures of the simple life: ‘We
have had pretty good times here,
too. One day we buggied out to
Uuckle Ned’s and went out to the
back lot, where we baseballed all
t.iat afternoon. In the evening
we sneaked lip into the attic and
pokered until morning.” A
sturdy old farmer who was listen
ing, not to la* outdone, took up the
convei.Nation at this point and
said: ‘I was having some fun
about this time myself. I muled
to the corutield and gee hawed un
til sundown. Then I suj pored
until datk, and piped until 9
o’clock after which 1 tiedstaded
until the clock fived, after which
I bn akfasted until it was time to
i>o rnnling again.
