Mafente, a garage operator of Heais burg, Cal., as security for a pair of automobile tires, remains unredeem ed. 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.

High points in the ad dress have been published in a bulle tin just issued. believe the newspapers present the most powerful advertising med ium,” stated Mr. Rand. “Newspaper 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.

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 the point? 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. Sincerely, Tho.s. M. Bell. (Adv.) • ' COLORED SCHOOL NOTICE Jefferson City 1 School, colored, will open September 6.

God blessed the Lord’s day and hallowed it, and did not except hot, cold or stormy days. 2. I expect‘the clergyman to be there. I should be surprised if he were to stay at home on account of the weather. 3. If his hands fail through weak ness I shall have great reason to blame myself, unless I sustain him by my prayers and presence. 4. My faith is to be shown by my self-denying Christian life and not by the rise and fall of the thermometei’. ■ —F. R. Havergal. NINE MILLION MOTOR CARS CARRY 36.000,000 PEOPLE Nine million automobiles carry ing 36,000,00 CL persons are .on long distance tours in the United States, according to a survey made by the American Automobile Association, in Washington.

This would exceed by $500,000,000 the sum spent during the past year. INDIFFERENCE THE MOST DEADLY EN£M TO THE HUMAN Race (Dr. S. A. Anderson, Commissioner Health, Baldwin County.) The oil and gasoline for the a go mobile must be declared to be \ b best by trained inspectors- the c must run perfectly. The horse col dog, cat, must have the besl an, cleanest of food. The children’ ot well, it doesn’t matter about hum a beings; they will get along all right they don’t need good, clean food n , attention is or need be paid to se, that baby gets the very best of mill at a time when a human being need a good foundation for vitality. We ea any and all kinds of meat and othej foods, cooked and raw. \y e d on -( know where it comes from, how fresh it is or w-ho has handled It, and. f ur . tliermore, we don’t care. To dilute denature, substitute or improperly handle materials for our cars, machin ery or pets is a fraud, and will be so punishable by the court. Do we Invesiteate to see if there is a fraud eomiflhed in the handling, prepara tion and sale of our food? We do not! Know the quality and source of your food; know by whom it is han dled and prepared. It is your right under any and all laws to know if the food measures up to a standard of safety and justice. Are the people who handle your food, food for your baby, free from communicable and preventable dis eases? What value do you place on the proper functioning of your body, your child’s body? Co-operate with your State Board of Health. 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. DRINKING WATER 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.
