SERVICE MEN SLOW !
Os the 4,500,000 veterans of the
world war entitled to adjusted com
pensation onlypensation only 1,450,000
have applied for the bonus. More
than a million of the claims already
have beenproved for payment. At
present the bonus department is re
ceiving about 30,000 claims a day.
These facts were made known in a
report issued by Major General Rob
ert C. Davis, in charge of the bonus
In arranging for payment of the
soldier bonus the United States gov
ernment tackled what is said to be
its biggest job. Pencils and pads
were not sufficient for the work,
and the government had special
"fool-proof" machines designed to
speed the service.
These machines automatically add
and subtract large sums, compute
the length of service in years,
months and days, and total the com
pensation due according to the
length of service. Their operation is
simple, despite the fact that there
are some 45 types of the machines,
and it is virtually impossible for op
erators to make mistakes on them.
Therefore they have been called
In addition to this work the gov
ernment is handling tons of data in
connection with the bonus work.
There are millions of finger prints,
and a service record, and other
information about each veteran of the
war. All of this information has to
be studied with great exactness, and
to do the gigantic task a great army
of men and women workers is being
employed by the government.
Despite the great scope of the
task the work is being done with
surprisng speed. For example, it is
possible to compute from (00 to 1,500
records of service in a day. The
computation proceeds 60 minutes an
hour for seven hours a day, and
there are scores of operators who
do nothing but work away oit the
"fool proof" machines.
£ Heals Pyorrhea
TEN YEAR BAD CASE COMPLETE
LY HEALED IN A SHORT TIME
Faced with the loss of her teeth,
niter 10 years’ suffering, Mrs. M. .1.
Travis, an esteemed resident of
Jacksonville, declares she finally
saved her teeth by a simple home
treatment: “worth its weight in
gold.” Using her own words: "After
having pyorrhea for 10 years my
mouth is now healed. Before I found
out differently, I was told there was
no relief and had yielded to the
loss of six fine Bolid teeth. Then l
discovered Moore's pyorrhea treat
ment. Three days after starting its
use, the soreness left my gums; my
teeth began to tighten. Now my j
teeth are clean, my breath sweet,
and my mouth completely healed.”
The experience of Mrs. Travis is
duplicated in hundreds of other
cases. If you have pyorrhea • or
threatened with pyorrhea your teeth
are in danger. Quick and effective
treatment is necessary. You can
test, without money risk, the treat

J Delay Can Cause
The world often learns that much
energy has been expended on a cer
tain thing to no advantage or profit
because the work has been done from
the wrong angle or the approach has
been wrong. This thought was prompt
ed because of the many physical de
fects found in school children. Much
time has been wasted and much harm
has already been done the child by
delay. The truth Is that the inspec
tion should be made early and the de
fects corrected early, not necessarily
An operation, but Quite often a change
of diet or habit would have prevented
the trouble entirely or corrected It If
it had not progressed too far. Early

most Important, and is far more so
than many realise.
Seaton For Smallpox
Is Now Upon Us
The season for smallpox is at hand;
th« cold weather shuts us up In un
veotilated rooms and we are In closer
contact with our fellow man, conse
quently the winter time sees certain
diseases prevailing more generally
than at other seasons. Smallpox is
one of the diseases that we see in
creasing. There is a certain remedy
against this disease —vaccination. The
baby should be vaccinated before It
walks; it should be vaccinated at
seven or eight years of age and after
that when exposed to the disease. The
new method of applying the virus does
not tend to produce large scars and
no bad arms unless the patient infects
the sore. It requires no dressing, and
above all things avoid the "vaccination
Respond To Very
The inhalation of chlorine gas as
a preventive of colds is being written
and talked about. It is now experi
mental and, in some cases, no doubt,
may do good. Vaccination for the pre
vention of oolds has been tried with
varying success. The failure of the
various proposed remedies for catarrh
al conditions is accounted for because
of the many different Invading organ
isms. They may be akin and, no
doubt, are, but they differ enough not
to be killed by the same method of
procedure, and many individuals do not
respond alike to the same remedy. All
these and more reasons account for
the failures that we have.
There Is no excuse for another
death or, in fact, case of diphtheria.
If such a case or death occurs, it can
be charged as neglect or indifference.
With the taxin - antitoxin perfected,
there is no reasonable excuse for not
using it on every child six months old
or over. Has your baby been protect

With the size of the current years
cotton crop estimated at being be
tween twelve and a quarter and
twelve and three-quarter million
bales, the big factor that will event
ually govern prices in the neixt
few months will be consumption of
the staple here and abroad, accord
ing to Atlanta cotton men.
Statistics made public in Atlanta
show that before the war the world
annually consumed more than thir
teen million bales of cotton. Last
year’s world consumption was around
“Just what amount of this low
i consumption was due to the price o?
30 to 35 cents for the staple and
what amount to the disordered con
dition of world commerce is any
body’s guessi” said an Atlanta cot
"But there is every indication,” he
continued, “that world cotton con
sumption will speedily rise far above
that figure, and in fact one can see
no reason why the worl dconsump

was before the war.

iWHY SUFFER SO?
Get Back Your Health As Other
Blakely Folks Have Done.
Too many people suffer lame, ach
ing backs, distressing kidney disor
ders and rheumatic paches and pains
Often this is due to faulty kidney
action and there’s danger of harden
ed arteries, dropsy, gravel or Bright's
disease. Don’t let weak kidneys
wear you out. Use Doan’s Pills be
fore it is too late! Doan’s are a
stimulant diuretic to the kidneys,
Doan's have helped thousands. They
should help you. Here is one of the
many Blakely cases:
J. B. Grimsley, Railroad Ave.,
says: “I had little control over the
passages of the kidney secretions.
The muscles in my back were
lame and sore and sharp pains
' caught me every time I stooped. I
j suffered with severe attacks of
■ dizziness. I used Doan's Pills and
j they rid me of the attack.” (State
ment made April 12, 1918.)
On 'February 8, 1923, Mr. Grims
ley added: ‘‘l use Doan’s Pills
whenever I need them and always
get good remits.”
