I don't believe in your absentees.” “Not behave in ’em! Come to Dublin with me and I'll show ye ’em by the hundred. Why, the country just swarms with ’em.”

So highly contagious is the trouble that innocent persons may contract it by using the same table ware, toilet articles or clothing of one in whose blood the treacherous virus has taken root. Not only is it a powerful poison but a very deceptive one. Only those who have learned by bitter experience know by the little sore or ulcer, which usually makes its appearance first,...
