Investigate. Ho searched tho wholo
houso and surroundings and found
everything perfectly sanitary. Ho was
about to give up his investigation
when he caught sight of tho dish
cloth. Upon examining It ho found
it to contain millions of microbes. So
the cause of the diphtheria was at
tributed to tho dirty dishcloth which
tho mother had thoughtlessly used.
We should always wash the dish
cloth thoroughly with hot wntor and
soap after using It, rinse it and shako
It out and then hang It up in tho sun .
to dry, never nslng it for nnything
excepting dishwashing. And do not
use it until "It Is a yard long."
