COUPLE PAWN THEIR BABY FOR
A six-Weeks-old baby left with J.
Mafente, a garage operator of Heais
burg, Cal., as security for a pair of
automobile tires, remains unredeem
It was along toward evening when
the stranger entered • Mafente’s gar
age and opened negotiations for a
pair of tires. One obstacle to the
transaction was the fact that the
stranger had no money.
“Well, if you won’t trust me,” tJie
stranger finally said, “I’ll leave the
baby here as security. I’ll be back
later and pay you for the tires.”
The middle aged garage Keeper and
his wife, without children of their
own, were struck with the idea and
allowed sentiment to interfere a lit
tle bit with business. .
“I don’t care if that fellow never
comes back,” says Mafente. “It’s a
good bargain if he doesn’t. My wife
is tickled to death.”
CAROLINA MAN PUTS ON
BEST CLOTHES THEN
CLIMBS POLE; ENDS LIFE
Clover, S. C.—Dressed in his best
clothes, James Tarlton, 25, textile
worker, killed himself here late last
night by climbing a steel electric
tower and touching a live wire.
Tarlton’s act, authorities were told,
was committed after he quarreled
with his wife, from whom he had been
estranged. When she lefused to be
reconciled, he told her he was going
to “dress up” and kill himself by
jumping from the power tower.
The short circuit which resulted
when the man touched the wire threw
Clover in darkness and stopped all
cotton mill machinery.

ADVERTISING AND NEWSPAPER
“There will be a tremendous in

the most powerful advertising med

publicity gets its story across to the
people, you want to sell, it is read,
and consequently exerts a definite
force in the making of sales.”
WHAT TO LEARN
1. Learn to laugh. A good laugh
is better than medicine.
2. Learn how to tell a hfclpful
story. A well-told story is as wel
come as a sunbeam in a sick room.
3. Learn keep yoqr trouble to
yourself. The world is too busy to
linger over your ills and sorrows.
4. Learn to stop croaking. If you
cannot see any good in this world,
keep the bad to yourself.
6. Learn to greet your friends with
a smile. They carry too many
frowns in their own hearts to be
bothered wjth any of yours.—St. 'Paul

MR. BELL MAKES REPLY
I regret to have to make a person
al reply to any article published in
any newspaper, intended as a cam
paign document, but the article in
the Maysvills Enterprise headed,
“Chickens Come Home to Roost,”
beggars description, and I am in
formed was written by an “outsider,”
and unknown to the public. It
states that in 1904 I advocated four
year terms in congress, and limited
to two terms. This is absolutely
false. My statement at that . time
was, that a man should be kept in
congress as long as he was doing
good work for his people, and that
.three or four terms was trial enough'
'for any man, and that if I did not do
jdo more for our district than had
been done in the past, I would re
.tire after a fair trial.
I have never advocated limited
tenure of office in a legislative body.
The office of congressman belongs to
the people, and they can elect whom
soever they please. If I made such
a statement as*is charged, why would
both my opponents support me con
sistently and up to the last cam
paign, and, in fact, until they both
announced against me, and then make
I have never violated a promise
made to the people; have never mis
led them, nor attempted to becloud
an issue.- The work in congress now
is important to the people, and my
experience has served me well since
the beginning of the world war. The
welfare of the ex-service man is at
stake; the French debt is to be set
tled, and I regret to know that
neither of my opponents have ex
pressed the slightest sympathy for
nor interest in either. I have hand
led more than 9.000 cases for ex
service men, and have pending now
before the bureau more than 1,700
claims, which I hope to get favorable
action on. Conditions are not norm
al since the world war, and the peo
ple, in my judgment, are not ready
to exchange experienced men for
those who have not had any such ex
perience, especially where the mem
bers have been true to every trust
and sincere in their endeavors.

THE PERFECT F,OOD
The one perfect food, that provided
by nature ready for use is the best of
all foods. This is perhaps especially
true of children and old people.
Milk contains a balanced ration for
the baby, and when taken direct from
the mother’s breast is uncontaminated,
pure and wholesome; it is the one
perfect food. It is the one food en
joyed and relished by every human be-,
ing until later some by cultivation of
their taste say they do not like it. It.
is an essential food. Clean milk, un
c*,ntaminated milk only should be used.
While milk gives the food that makes
babies grow and develope it is a
splendid food for the disease germ; it
is one of the best “mediums” as our
laboraties call it. Germs like milk and
will thrive upon it. From this fact we
know that unclean milk is a dangerous
food. The handling of milk
then is a matter of great,
concern. Unless the cow is
sick or has some disease of the udder
her milk is pure when she is milked,
but her grooming should be done with
the utmost care. The milker should
be clean, especially the hands, in
cluding the nails. The vessels that re
ceive the milk should be as nearly
sterile as possible. It should be pro
tected from insects, especially flies.
It should be kept clean through every
process and at as low a temperature
as is possible. The cow. the milker,
the containers, the handler should,
each and all be what our hospitals
call “surgically clean.” The cooler the
milk is kept the less the germs and
bacteria grow. This is the reasor thdt
all health authorities insist that milk
be Immediately cooled and kept cool.
Say 50 degrees.
Pasteurization of milk means that
the milk has been heated to the point
that most germs are killed, but unless
it is immediately cooled and kept
cold they soon grow again. Absolutely
clean milk does not need pasteuriza
tion, but if you are in doubt about
your milk boil it and quickly cool it
if you do not like it hot and it is safe.
Every child should have a quart
of mttk a day; he needs it. It is just
as good for the adult and splendid
for the aged.
Safe water for home use Is much
to be desired. Almost all municipal
supplies are safe, but the home supply
is often in the rural sections of our
state anything but pure, and water
that is not pure is always dangerous.
Water can be clear and cold, yet have
the germs of disease in it. Wells and
springs should have the proper care
given them. No surface water should
allowed to get in; no seepage
should trickle down the walls of the
well after a rain.
The State Board of Health will be
glad to advise you about your well or
spring If you will write them at the
Capitol. They have worked out a
method of purifying your well hy the
addition of chlorine. It is known, of
course, by everybody that boiling the
water will destroy the germs, but it
then has to be cooled again. Espe
cially should your water supply be
given attention if there is typhoid or
dysentery in the community. These
diseases are often contracted from
flies and drinking water.
