PAGE NINE DO NOT TASTE CANNED FOODS THAT SMELL BAD The attention of the public is drawn to the trenlendous danger it] tasting even the slightest bit of any canned food which has a bad odor upon open- ing. Dr. J. L. Pomezoy, County Health Officer, cites a recent case as an illus- tration of this great danger. Mrs. Leona Blaner, 65, of 416 Genoa Street, Arcadia, opened some home canned beet tops on Monday, October 2nd. She tasted a bit, but due to the fact that they did not taste exactly right or smell good, she threw them to the chickens. The next day Mrs. Bla- nor began experiencing some trouble with her eyes. She visited au occulist. Shortly her throat became so involved that she went to see her personal phy- sician, who, suspecting that it was bot- ulism, called in county health officials. Mrs. Blaner is now improving its a re- sult of serum furnished her by the County Health I)el)artme,tt on October 5th. The chickens died of food 1)oi- soning due to the beet tops fed them. "Taste no food if there is the slight- est offensive odor on opening the can or jar," stated Dr. Pomeroy. "Death may occur fronl only (;no slnall tasts. ];tn'thermore, such food shouht not bc is now using the new paved highway trom Laredo to Mexico City the year around, and improvement of a route through western Mexico to modern standards is under way. The United States has cooperated in surveys for a route through the Cen- tral American republics from Mexico to Panatna. In South America ex- tensive stretches of highway already buih will fit into the international highway project. o W~hen I would beget content and in- crease confidence in the power aim wisdont and providence of Ahnighty God, I will walk the meadows by some gliding stream, and there contemplate the lilies that take no care and those very many other little living creatures that are not only created, but fed (man knows not how) by the goodness of God of Nature, and therefore trust in Him.--Isaak Walton. After nineteen years iu one location, Martin Hall has nioved to new quar- ters on Sumner avenue. It has often been said: "You're not a real re, tire unless you wear a Martin Hall suit. There's no one too large or too small that he can't build a suit for, either in stature or positions." Peace The club members were discussing laziness. One finally told about his hiking through the South. Coming to a stream, he saw a mountaineer sitting on the bank against a tree, his hat over his face and a fishing rod stuck uttder one knee, the line in the water. "Hello," said the visitor. "Been here all day ?" "Yep," was the response from the motimless fisher. "Caught anything ?" "I)tmno."--Calgary Herald. .1 ,,, ', rim, .llllm,, m 'Ill' Jllllllltl~*fl/flllflOllflllllllllllllllll, I1 IIIIIIIIIIIIIIILIIILIU IIlllllllllltllllllllllll till I i lUll lit Jfll~tltlttBIliil:l !ttltllllllllllllllt[ll B llllt/flllllllllltldl H tlUiltm~ll}lfl*~tO ltltl~ H iiiiiiiiiIiiiitn/atph~gl/lllP. i rooks P'h mac?i -== New Merchandise Friendly Service Reasonable Prices | -, H ISrFFHitllllllllllt [mlrllqI tll II fftl Hill t~HIlIT~Tt rllllllllH~ tffTRSlfFI~*!I*IIIHH?
