apology to you for what I said and
did ui)oii that occasion that a gentle

offensive, and to assure you that I
regard you as a lady and entitled to
that consideration which every gentle
man owes to a good woman. You

did what you could to make me com
fortable, your attention being such ns
1 needed in my sick, nervous and feeble
condition from the burden and strain
of ns exceedingly arduous campaign
during a hot summer, and 1 feel grate
ful for all you did for me.

regards, 1 am,
THOMAS E. WATSON."

Health Education Is
Undertaken By Our
Public Health Nurse.
The Public Health Nurse of the Bar
row County Chapter, American Kisl
Cross, who is Mrs. Ruby Worsham has
done some excellent work along the
lines of health education during the
The class of twenty women to whom
Mrs. Worsham is teaching Home Hy
giene and Care of the Hick constitutes
one of the most valuable pieces of
health work which could be offered to
our community. In time of emergency
or epidemic, there is nothing more im
portant than accurate knowledge of
what to do for those in need; hut side
by side with emergency needs is the
need which is always with us—the
need for an understanding of health
laws and of health reyuirements, and
this is also taught in these classes in
Home Hygiene and Care o fthe sick.
If the home is sanitary and if health
laws are regarded, then our womes
are learning the great lesson of how tc
keep the well from getting sick, and
the Red Cross lias devoted much time
and attention to making such lessons
practical, easy to learn and easy to
apply to their own families and friends
This is not anew enterprise; it l>e
gan us long ago as 1914 when the war
almost drained the country of trained
nurses and when the first epidemic of
influenza was met by untrained women
who, despite all their efforts and earn
est desires did not know what to do
for the sick. Since that time 92,000
women and girls throughout the coun
try have taken these Red Cross courses
which are specially arranged for them
and have also stood the examinations
which are given at their conclusion usd
have received certificates of proficiency
in the lessons learned. Many hundred
more women took the courses and prof
ited by them even though they did not
quite complete the courses.
Mrs. Worsham is giving practical
demonstrations to her class in the best
ways to take temperatures and pulse;
how to make a bed with a helpless pa
tient in it, how to give a bed bath and
feed the sick, how to apply hot or cold
applications, and in short how to do
the many things which not only help
the sick to get well but which also
make them so much more comfortable
and happy. It is a decided contribu
tion to community health to have this
work generally extended and women
will find the time spent in such classes
of the greatest possible help to them
and to their families.

As the shades of evening began to
hover and sunlight was shedding its
brilliant rays on the western horizon,
on January 18, 1921, the spirit of Mrs.
Lessie Giles O’Kelly winged its way
back to the Father who gave it. Mrs.
O'Kelly was horn May 26, 1888, and
was reared in the Chapel church com
munity. On December 7th, 1913, she
was united In marriage to Mr. R. L.
O’Kelly, of Commerce, Ga. To this
union three sweet little children were
horn to brighten and adorn the home,
two girls and one boy. In early life
she identified herself with the church
at Chapel and from all appearance and
conversation she was true to all her
She had been in declining health for
some time, and suffered a great deal,,
but with a Christ-like spirit she bore
it patiently. She seemed to realize that
death was near and that the only way
for relief was down through the valley
and shadow of death. And In talking
with her loved ones this was her de
sire, giving instructions for her burial
She was laid to rest at Chapel ceme

years, conducted the funeral, this be

heard druggists ask a customer, who
wished to buy a cough medicine, wheth

if for a child, they almost invariably
recommended Chamberlain’s Cough
Remedy. The reason for this is that
they know’ there is no danger from it
and that it always cures. There is
