Description Philoro/hy md Hobbies tom of cold, cough, dryness of the throat appears, by simply cutting out the starches and sweets, the incubation of the germ will be arrested. Never will I forget the astonishment I felt on hearing my father-in-law, Dr. H. J. Richards, say thirty-five years ago, that colds came from over-eating and candy. He was thirty-years ahead of his time; five years ago that began to be published in the Physicd Health Mqmine. When I meet people who talk of taking a cold through being in the draft, or getting rained on, or stepping on the wet lawn, I pity them, - they are still plodding along many years behind times.

I resolved to use the hatchet, but my wife advised me not to, as long as there was life. The day following I saw an improve- ment and was greeted with the slightest note of poultry song from her.
