Dear Miss Fairfax! A friend of mine

They were both very fond of one another,

-. There are some tender-hearted girls who sense life In every
thing that moves even if it be a breath of wind as the flower sways,
who are kind to everything, snd who would caress and love s
flower for 11s own soft sweet sake even if it came from a man
whose name makes her lip cur. A' course here wnat could an
eavesdropper do but go back with "nothing to report" from the

Fevers that Bloom in Spring
By WOODS HUTCHINSON, M
It seema painfully ironlo that the ap

heralded by the fiercest outbreak and
w id oat spread of diseases of any 'month
in the calendar year.

And, of course. It haa been a elaasle
canon of pathetlco-romantlo literature
that the wan and wasted victims of the
great white plague struggle through the
winter to fall and fade with the coming
of tha spring flowera.
For once tha findings of modern acience
and vital etattatlcs firmly and unml
takably support an ancient popular Im
pression. Not only doea tha general death
rate In almost every city and country of
the temperate sone mount steadily from
Ita lowest point In July up to Ita climax
In March or early April, but tha same

curve when we map out tha ravages of

there ahould be an Increase In tha coughs,

which are supposed to have to do with

so severely, because we could take the

The deaths and diseases snd break
