JULY, 1931 ~fe k new he FAC ED 79 Kill it, and play safe," in- stinct told him. "Let it bite; you may learn something," his scientijt's mind replied. DEATH1 . . . yet he let the mosquito bite! IT was hot and steamy, that afternoon of September 13, 1900. In the yellow fever ward at Las Animas, Cuba, a young doctor moved slowly down the dreary row of cots. He was a member of the Yellow Fever Commission, whose job it was to find the cause of the dread "yellow jack." Mosquitoes were suspected. He paused to watch a mosquito that hovered above his hand. "Kill it, and play safe," instinct told him. "Let it bite; you may learn something," his scientist's mind replied. Twelve days later, Dr. Jesse Lazear died of yellow fever. Today, this scourge is practically extinct. The real history of medical progress dates only from the discovery that sickness and infection are caused by germs. Disinfection was practically unknown sixty years ago. Today it is almost a religion with the medical profession-and whenever there is a real job of germ- killing to do, doctors turn to "Lysol" Disinfectant. "Lysol," when diluted according to directions, is non-poisonous-yet all recommended dilutions are sure germ-killers. In any situation in your own home where you have reason for doubt, play safe-use "Lysol." Use it properly diluted wherever germs are apt to lurk -on wounds, cuts and human tissue; in the household on telephones, doorknobs, woodwork, nursery furni- ture, baby's toys, and utensils. "Lysol" is the most economical disinfectant in the world, too. Every drop will kill 200,000,000 bacteria. A tablespoonful diluted makes four quarts of non-poison- ous disinfectant. Get a large bottle of "Lysol" from your druggist today. It is your surest safeguard against sickness and infection. Meanwhile, send for "The 'Lysol' Health Library" of three free booklets: "Pro- tecting the Home Against Disease," "Getting Ready for Baby," and "The Facts About Feminine Hygiene." Thousands of women have found them invaluable in the home. Just write Dept. 30B, Lehn & Fink, Inc., Bloomfield, New Jersey.
