They fe> joy in warm water near the shores. They like the mouths of rivers and other plnces where the shallow water is clogged with floating weeds. After all. a mother manatee; needs about 100 pounds ol green food every day. And the lazy lady prefers to loll in the water, where she. can eat with- out going to any trouble. Alf these cousins look like huge, pear shaped balloons with large, fishy shaped tails. Their arms are flippers and they have no back legs. Their faces look somewhat like piles of inner tubes, adorned with bright little buttons for eyes and moustaches made from straggly brislles. They wear muddy greys to match the murky water. Some of the cousins are cal- led "dugongs" and most of these are about ten feet long. There are dugongs along the shores of the Red Sea and more in the shallow coves around the In- dian Ocean. Others enjoy life in the mouths of East Africa rivers. Still more live along the marshy shores of Taiwan and the Solomon islands and others live far away along the eastern shores of Australia. In some places, these mana- tee cousins are hunted for their meat. This is easy, because the, dugongs are trustful charac- ters and they do not try very hard to escape. They do not multiply very fast because Mrs. Dugong has only one baby at a time. Around the shores of Africa, too many of them have been caught and eaten. So there are fewer du- gongs left. The largest of the cousins Is a real manatee, and he grows to be 15 feet long. Many ol these whoppers live in the breath of air. Mrs. Manatee has one or ihout ;ed on mother's milk for a year and a half. Then they go olf lo dine on Ihc floating weeds.

(Copyright Ciunnicle Publishing Co. 1S72) Doctor fined [or traffic violation EDMONTON doctor stopped for a traffic violation while answering an emergency call was found guilty and fined in CAirt today. Dr. Temice Traff, an obste- trician, told Judge H. C. Bussel he had informed the police of- ficer that he was on an urgent call, but he had to wait five minutes while a summons was written, chatting him with making an illegal left turn. Judge Russel said he handles many cases where people have committed traffic offences be- cause they have received bad news or have family problems. "I've always treated that as relevant to the penalty, not as an excuse for the infraction." He said he found it im- possible "to conclude the left turn was committed wholly by accident and without negli- gence." every time I am lying down to get some sleep. I have gone to the Eye, Ear and Throat Clinic, but they can't find any- Ihing wrong with my ears. Dear Header It is perfect- ly nonnal. Many people can lie on their side and liear their heart beat. I suppose that a person who is more conscious and aware of his Ixxly is more apt tiear his heart beat and, of course, if the heart beats very forcefully this is a factor. Actually, the force of Uic lieart beat is much greater than most perople realize. In the old fashioned spring beds you could watch the bed move in relationship to the liear heat. There is even one device, the hallisto cardiogram, whicl: lias been designed lo take ad vantage of the fact that the body vibrates with each hear beat. These instruments recorc the actual oscillations of thi whole body that occurs witl each beat. There are manj variations of these includinj bare that are rested on. thi shin bones and devices tha are placed on the chest. Bu tiKiy all attest lo the fact tha the mechanical force of th heart beat can cause the entir body to vibrate. I think th best ttimg I can tell you is jus top worrying about it. It hasn't to do with your ears. Dear Dr. Could you ell mo why nitrogylcerin is ireseriticd five minutes before meal? Also what is tincture >f belladonna foni Dear Header Nitroglycerin ablets are commonly used to relieve chest pain caused by .eart disease (angina riiey can also cause relaxation of the muscles in the es- ophagus. I would guess, how- ever, that the reson the nitro- glycerin is being given before meals is to prevent any pain difficulty from the heart e people wlto have chcs ?ain after eating because :he heart can be treated this way. The table before the meal prevents the chest pain. In a similar fashion nitroglycerin tablets are some- times prescribed exer c which ordinarily woul< produce chest pain. Tincture of belladonna Is a antispasmodic. It is sometime used in digestive upsets an problems such as stomac ulcers or related disorders, also has a soothing or seda tivelike effect. It, too, is fre quently used in treatment hcart disease. Thus, I woul think that both of these med cines are given for th? reason, although it is beyond the realm of possibilit that they might be used f< spasm of the esophagus.
