LOOK-OUT FOR CARBON MONOXIDE
We have seldom heard of a more distressing accident than
the death of nine Dartmouth students and their pet dog, as Ihey
were sleeping peacefully in their fraternity club house on the col-
lege campus. Something went wrong with the furnace, and they
were killed in their sleep, everyone who was in the building, by
the deadly carbon monoxide gas.
This is a form of poisoning which is becoming much too com-
mon. More than 50,000 persons were killed last year by carbon
monoxide. Some were overcome while in their cars, left running
in closed garages. Many died from Bleeping in closed rooms with
a gas fire going. There were comfteratively few who met their
death from the gases escaping from a furnace, as in the Dart-
mouth case, but enough to make it seem desirable to utter a warn-
ing to everybody who depends upon coal stoves or coal furnaces
to look to their heating plants.
Many people have the idea that they can always smell the pras
in time to open a door or window. And many have met their
deaths because they did not realize that the poisonous carbon
monoxide which is given off whenever coal or petroleum products
are burned, ie odorless. Its presence cannot be detected by the
nose. The unpleasant odor of coal-gas or the exhaust fumes of
an automobile misleads folk into thinking that unless they smell
something there is no danger.
Nobody can smell carbon monoxide. There is no warning but
the sudden collapse and speedy death of the victim. Most of these
deaths occur in winter, when furnaces are being forced and win-
dows are kept closed, when it seems to be easier to start up the
car before opening the garage doors. There is only one way to
prevent it, and that is never to run a car in an enclosed space un-
less there is a door or window wide open; nver to enter or sleep
in a room or a house unless certain that the furnace flues are
properly working and the sleeping room is well ventilated.
If found soon enough after collapse, many victirrs can be re-
vived by medical means, but this aid seldom comes quickly enough.

Lost 20 Lbs. of Fat
In Just 4 Weeks
Mrs. Mae West of St. Louis, Mo.,
writes: "I'm only 28 years old and
weighed 170 lbs. until taking one box
of your Kruschen Salts just 4 weeks
ago. I now weigh 160 lbs. I also
have more energy and furthermore
I've never had a hungry moment."
Fat folks should take one half tea-
spoonful of Kruschen Salts in a glass
of hot water every morning before
breakfast—an 85-cent bottle lasts 4
weeks—you can get Kruschen at any
drug store in America. If not joy-
fully satisfied after the first bottle—
money back. (Adv.)

They may find that the nagging is
in proportion to their own shirking.

For seven weeks the trio Lome
Brotherson, Frank Dwelle and Frank
Morrison were marooned on the vast
expanse of Great Bear lake before
they arrived ut shelter. Three times
airplanes passed them as they trug-
ed through the snow on a 175-mile
trek to Cameron bay, but their iron- j
tic signals were unnoticed.
"The last seven days were the
hardest," the paper quoted Brotherson
as saying. "The temperature was
around 60 below zero and we had no
food. However, we managed to get
through with only slight frost hites
to fingers and faces."
Morrison was quoted as saying:
"I think the means cf our safe ar-
rival lay in a hall of fine twine I hap-
pened to have with me. We man-
ufactured snares from this twine.
Without it we would have been un
able to catch rabbits, which kept us

miles, waiting for them to drop.
