"There can be no question of the worthwhileness of life if one gets at it thoroughly and plays it true, but one must bear such thoughts as these among others in mind: "To work for the love of work, and to finish what you start while others idle around you and leave the day's job unfinic.hed. To do the thing at hand that is waiting to be done, in- stead of looking around for something else to do. To put more into the world than you take out of it, and to give everyone more than you get. To believe that you ~ere put into the worht to take part in its activities for the l)urpose of sharing in its accom- 1)lishments. To have tile conviction, and let no one shake it, that there is one real factor in life, and that is Truth."--Edward Bok. -O AVOID POISONING At the Americau Medical Associa- tion, it was pointed out that over five hundred children, under the age of five, had died in the United States in one year as a result of accidental poi- soning. Accidental taking of insect powders, rat powders, poisons, paints, cosnletics and drugs being common causes. While awaiting the arrival of a phy- sician, if you are familiar with the an- tidote for the poison taken, says a prominent physician, take it immedi- ately. If you do not know the anti- dote, give the white of egg, milk or strong tea. Encourage vonfiting. This can often be accomplished by giving lukewarm water mixed with a tea- spoon of nmstard or salt. Repeat the dose every ten minutes until vomiting occurs. Laxative pills and all medicines that contain strychnine should be kept be- yond the reach of tiny bands.Lock your medicine cabinet!
