A new and interesting version of an old time sport was enjoyed by a number of people at the Briggs ranch north of Protection Saturday afternoon of last week. The herd of buffalo which has been mairrtained at the Briggs ranch for many years had become wild and was interfering with ranching operations and so it was decided to reduce the number by a hunt. The animals were located from the air by Wilford Betzer in his plane, in sharp contrast to the methods used in early days, but none-the-less exciting. The hunt took place west of the ranch headquarters, starting at two o'clock p. m. The hunters rode in a car driven by Paul Briggs and found it difficult %o keep within shooting distance of the buffalo. By sundown, however, the number killed had reached four, in spite of difficulties. They were taken by truck to Coldwater where~ they were dr~'ssed and refrigerated by the Golden Valley Dairy. Those who participated in ~his novel hunting expedition were Emil Hcaly, Charles Healy and Mr. Hink. le of Wichita and Wtlford Betzer of Coldwater. They were assisted by Paul Briggs and the cowboys from the Briggs ranch. When this buffalo herd was start- ed by ~che Briggs ranch it was a novelty because of the scarcity of the animals in the state, which once I AM THE RED CROSS I am the Red Cross, born of a thousand disasters, I shed light where there was not light before.

Many mothers send children suffering with colds to School, exposing other youngsters and the teachers. Making the cold so common is not only a stupid practice, but also a dangerous one, as the common cold may result in such serious complications as bronchitis, pleu- risy, pneumonia, rheumatism, and chronic heart disease. Head colds may cause painful earache, mas- toiditis, or result in inflammation of the sinus cavities. We are all familiar witi~ the symptoms of a common cold, and we are smart enough to know when we are taking cold--but unfortun- ately, few of us are wise enough to try to check the malady im- mediately, or thoughtful enough to protect the members of our family and other associates from our germs. The only persons who are natural- ly not easily susceptible to colds are those who build up resistance to the disease, by a constant routine of healthful living. The state board of health offers the following suggestions as general .treatment for a common cold: take a hot bath and go to bed; stay in bed until the fever has gone or as long as you feel miserable; drink pletny of water and fruit jt~]ces; eat moderately of simple foods, avoiding rich or sweet foods; take a gentle laxative, avoiding so~called "cold cures", many of which are harmful, using only medicine pre- scribed by your family physician; sleep in a well ventilated room, avoiding drafts and chilling of the ,body surfaces. If you do not im- prove quickly with this simple, home treatment, call your physician and follow his instructions implicitly. Use every precaution to guard in- fants and elderly persons from colds--they are easy victims of pneumonia. ~o-o W. G.
