DURING A fire drill last week, staff and pupils at Dublin Elementary School in Harford County encountered a swarm of yellow jackets just outside the cafeteria. Because insect stings can be fatal, Principal Robin Payne immediately placed the infested area off-limits and arranged for an emergency pesticide application. On Friday, letters went home with all of Dublin's children informing parents of the spraying. Pesticides can be fatal, too, and not just to yellow jackets. Toxic chemicals in the sprays used to contain or kill pests can cause cancer, nervous system injury and lung disease.

150 years ago in The Sun June 28: MORPHINE CHOLERA PRESCRIPTION -- We yesterday copied from an exchange paper an extract of a letter from a Louisiana planter, who is also an eminent physician, recommending as a preparatory preventive of the cholera, a dose of five to ten or twelve grains of calomel, with ten or fifteen grains of morphine at night. Our attention has been called to the fact that this dose of morphine should be the tenth or fifteenth part of a grain. Newspaper prescriptions may be good but a typographical error like the above, if followed, would be more certainly fatal than the cholera itself.
