TRACHOMA AND THE ARMY
While trachoma is little known j
through most of the state of Okla-
homa and the total number of
leases is small compared with the
| population, there are certain sec-
tions in which it is more or less
prevalent. Trachoma is an infec-
tious disease. Carelessness or im-
proper treatment may result in its
rapid spread. In normal times it
is important that precautions
against the spread of. this serious
afflication should be taken, It is
especially important at present
when so many of our young men
pre being taken to the army. The
State Board of Health of Oklaho-
ma, as well as health authorities in
other states, is working in co oper-
ation with the medical authorities
of the w r department to prevent
any outbreak of trachoma in the
training camps, cantonments and
other places where large numbers
of soldiers may be gathered,
The history ot European wars
shows that trachoma has been a
grave menace to the efficiency of
the fighting forces, invaliding
thousands ot men and blinding
large numbers of victims. During
the present great conflict sanitary
and medical precautions have been
observed to an unusual degree,
which has kept down the ravages
of this disease, although at one
time the Belgian armv suffered to
a considerable extent.
The diagnosis of trachoma is
still based on clinical evidence,
since the casual organism is as yet
unknown. Diagnosis is in many
casess difficult. There are many
cases which are found only by
careful examination as but few
symptous may be present at the
time of rtic examination and the
condition may be said to be latent
or dormant. Sooner or later, how-
ever, by reason of a foreign body
or other excitant there arises a
condition analogus of acute granu-
lations with the watery secretion
socharacteristic of the disease and
the other familiar symytons. In
this stage the disease is highly in-
TUBERCULOSA AND THE WAR
The study of the tuberculosis sit-
uation in the warring countries of
Europe is of especial interest to
America at this time. In England
for many years before the war
there had been intensive anti tu-
berculosis work. The effect of this
was seen in the low death rate
from this disease, lower in fact
than in other great country in the
world, only about one per cent of
In France, on the other hand,
little of this work has been done.
No great effort has been made to
instruct and educate the masses of
the people on the prevention of tu-
berculosis. There were no public
sanatoria and few private institu-
tions for the reception of cosumpt-
ives. The consequence was that
the death rate from the disease
was extremely high, more than
twice as high as the"United States
and three times that of England,
again England is mobilizing her
great armies, having very efficient
health organizations, exercised
especial care in examining recruits.
If there was any suspicion of the
disease special examination and if
advisable exclusion was the order.
The results have been that Eng-
land has only a very few thousand
of cases of tuberculosis among her
millions of soldiers. But in France
it is different. Her great army
had to be mobilized with all possi-
ble speed and many of her recruits
were tuberculous. Duringtraining
many succumbed to the disease
and more went into the trenches
where conditions were conductive
to propagatton. As a result at the
end of 1915, 85,000 French soldiers
had been returned to their home
with active tuberculot-isand no ad-
equate facilities whereby they
could be cared for. There is little
question that the number is greater
now than at any time, In addition
there are many cases arising from
infection from these original cases.
The experience of these two
countries is a most instructice ex-
hibit of what public heath activi-
ties properly directed will accom-
plish and heavy penalties which
the neglect of these precautions in-
[volves. It is a lesson exually per-
I tinent to peace or war, a lesson
which America should heed.

"I have been selling Chamber-
lain's Tablets for about two years
and heard such good reports from
my customers that I concluded to
give them a trial myself, and can
say that I do not believe there is
another preparation of the kind
equal to them.'' writes G. A. Mc-
Bride, Headford, Ont. It you are
troubled with indigestion or con-
stipation give them a trial. They
will do you good.
What is Gasoline
Gasoline was originally used for
cleaning gloves and ejecting hired
girls through the kitchen roof, but
has been taught a great variety of
interesting tricks, such as running
automobiles, aeroplanes, motor
boats, streetcars, hearses, comshel-
lers and bicycles. By the aid of
gasoline we can travel 150 miles
an hour through the air, 60 mile an
hour over the land and 6 feet in
the ground with the greatest ease.
A gallon of gasoline can do as
much work in an hour as a horse
can all day, and it don't have to be
fed at night. It can run a Ford 20
miles and while doing this cause
three runaways, a collision, $20
fine for speeding, a divorce suit
and an inquest. A gallon of whis-
key at a Saturdny night dance can
be the cause ot a great deal of
trouble, but it is tame and kitten-
ish beside a gallon of whiz water
that is conducting a joy ride. Gas-
oline is a clear, nervons liqiud,
which is composed of speed, noise
and trouble in equal parts. It is
made of kerosene reduced to a
more violent stage —Ex.

"Chamberlain's Colic and Diar-

father about a year ago when he
had diarrhoea. It relieved him
immediately and by taking three
doses he was absolutely cured. He
has great faith in this remedy.'
