He may be a little slow at figures but we doubt not that by a little juggling he might be able to perform a simple problem in subtraction and the result would show just as the Press previously stated that the Stanley county resources above liabilities as shown by the above auditors statement were $236,- 778.18. Now the Press cannot agree with the Times and we do not believe that the county auditor would maue a sworn statement of something which was not true and why the Timesshould doubt his statement we do not under- stand. The Times says, ‘‘ln other words, instead of Stanley county having heaps of money stored up itis actu- ally in debt over $125,000.” The au- ditor’s statement above should settle that question. Continuing it, says, ‘‘lnstead of a nest egg to build a court house, this new Jackson county would have to bond for about $30,000 to cover its proportionate share of the Stanley county debt and then i bond again for running expenses.” , Such silly twaddle founded on non- < sense without any basis whatever for such statements. We wonder how many of the Times readers willac- i cept this statement of indebtedness ' when the facts prove the statement | false and the county auditors state- ment shows the balance just what the Press said it was. Don’t take the Press for this but go to the coun- ty records and you willfind our claims substantiated. The Times takes exception also to the fact urged by the Press that very little county money had been spent in Jackson county territory, and attempts to show that some two or three thousand dollars was spent by the county for a bridge at Interior, when as a matter of fact the bridge leyy as at present and no hardship will be worked upon her citizens not- withstanding the claims of the man from Belvidere. The Belvidereites do not need to worry about the Jackson county pe- titions as the requisite number of signatures was secured some time since. Occosionally a man comes along who wants to sign and of course ho is given tin opportunity. The question will be up to the voters this fall. They will carefully con- sider the proposition and vote for their best interests. Those interests lie in the establishment of a county of our own south of the base line w here the interests of all parts may be looked after and the greatest good to the greatest number will result. Can Health Be Bought in the Drug Store? Mrs. Martha M. Allen. Superin- tendent of the Department of Med- ical Temperance for World’s and National Woman’s Christain Tem- perance Union. Paper Prepared for the First International Congress of Mothers, Washington, D. C., March 16-20, 1908. There is no more popular subject with mothers than that of how to pre- serve the health of their children. But how’ few mothers have learned ¦ either for themselves or for their i children the secret of right living which ensues health! The great mass ;of the people seem to believe that health is sold by the bottle at the drug store, and that keep well, or to regain lost strength, it is necessary to consume more or less constantly pills, powders, tablets, or various con- coctions of alchohol and drugs sold under such names at Peruna,Neuvura, Bitters, or Vegetable Compound. Much of their erroneous and mischiev- ous belief is due to the false but al- luring advertisements of proprietary medicines which for decades past have been set before the reading pub- lic daily in the newspapers and mag- azines.- But a part of it is undoubt- « ««« REAL ESTATE!

We want 100 more quarters of Stanley County Land listed by the time the snow gees off.I «>»*»*>****» edly due to the teaching and example of a large section of medical profes- sion which found it easier to prescribe nillsand potions than to study and apply hygienic methods of treating disease. The better class of medical men are now thoroughly awake to the need of a radical change in the t?aehing and practise of medicine, and some of the leaders are active In working for a national department of health at Washington, which shall endeavor to lead the people out of the unhappy condition in which they are now in respect to the care and maintainanee of physical vigor. In the new health crusade the first action has been to speak out against the common belief in drugs as remed- ial agents. Sir Frederick Treves of London, surgeon of King Edward, re- cently said at the opening of a hospit- al that the time is rapidly approach- ing when physicians will give very littlemedicine but will instead teach proper methods of living, so that dis- ease may be avoided. The great Chi- cago surgeon, Nicholas Senn, said shortly before his death: “Preven- tive medicine is the medicine of the future, and the final triumph of scien- tific medicine will be the suppression, not the care of disease. We have learned by long experience that the most formidable weapons in fighting disease are not drugs. We must give to the siek careful nursing and hy- gienic surroundings if we wish to se- cure the highest possible percentage of cures.” Dr. Osler, an international author- ty has also voiced this view. In speak- ing of tuberculosis he said: “The timc to cure consumption is before it begins, by which I mean we insist live according to nature’s laws and thus keep well, but if we do acquire the disease through violation of the law, then return to natures law for cure, and not to medicines.” A New York physician of world- wide reputation recently told of his method of treating pneumonia. He said: ‘‘Mytreatment consists in mak- ing patients comfortable in bed, look- ing after all the functions of the body, and, above all, supplying an abund- ance of fresh air. Since I have used this treatment my deat h-rate has been reduced one half. In typhoid fever, drugs have long been cast aside and careful nursing, with hygienic sur- rounding, adopted. The same is true of scarlet fever, measles, rheumatism gnd many other maladies.” Since many successful physicians are laying aside drugs because they can save life better without such agents, wise mothers would do well to imitate their example in such sim- ple cases of illness as call only for home care. Multitudes of mothers have done their children great and lasting injury by giving them mor- phine soothing syrups and morphine cough syrups, and whisky slings and “rock and rye, and coca wines, and various other drug preparations which lead to nervous or digestive disturb- ances ami sometimes to drug habits or death. Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, chief of the Bureau of Chemistry of the United States government, has said that over a million American ba- bies have been killed by morphine soothing syrups. The Massachusetts Board of Health years ago warned mothers against morphine in cough syrups and soothing syrups, and said that these preparations sow seed tn childhood which will bear the most pernicious fruit in adult life. In many homes children have been given for simple ailments such wretch- ed nostrums as Peruna and Warner’s Safe Cure and the various sarsaparil- las, all but one of which contains quite considerable percentages of al- ! cohol, with other drugs which are dangerous to health. Most of the sarsaparillas contain iodide of potas- sium, a drug quite unfit for self-pre- scription. The action of this drug übon many persons is to bring out an eruption upon the skin. This is taken by the consumer as evidence that the “badness” in his blood is coming out. That is said to be the reason this drug is placed in the nostrum. Malt extracts are used quite extent- sively by people who would nor drink beer, yet most of these preparations are as strongly alcoholic as ordinary ale or beer. Analysis has shown that they are not aids to digestion, as rep- resented; in none of them was there found the slightest diastatic power. Cod-liver-oil preparations are much believed in by a large class of people, I Vinol being a special favorite. Yet , Vinol in its printed circulars admits that it contains no oil. The commit- tee ->n pharmacy of the American Medical Association says: “A pre- paration claiming to represent cod- i liver oil' which does not con tain fat is fraudulent.” They <x amined Waterbury’s Metabolized Cod-liver oil aud Hague’s Cordial of Cod-liver Oil. The latter is claim- ed to “represent 33 per cent of pure Norwegian cod liver oil,” yet in nei- ther of these preparations did the an- alysis find oil. They found ancohol, sugar and glycerine, none of which is of tained in cod-liver oil. It is hard to convince people that most of the proprietary medicines largely advertised are useless, and in many cases harmful. This is because they feel better for a time after tak- ng a dose. They do not understand that the improved feeling is due to the benumbing action of the alcohol, or morphine, or whatever drug is used nor do they know that if they have auy disease this beumbing action is only hiding the symptoms; it has no curative effect. It is possible to care for the health of children that no serious illness will ever invade the home. The writer of this paper reared four children, and never had anything worse than mumps and measles attack one of the four. Hot lemonade and orange juice were the strongest medicines she ever ad- ministered Cert ainly health cannot be purchas- ed at the drug store, nor does it exist in any bottle of liquor or box of pills, nor will these restore health when lost. Nature alone has power to htal. proper food, exercise, fresh air, and plenty of sleep are natures restora- tives. This is the season for planting seed, and ’tis also the the printer’s time of need. Sow radish seed; and lettuce too, and pay the printer whatever is due. Go build yourself an onion bed and remember the printer must be fed. Sow several rows of early peas and pay for last year’s paper, please. Dig up the earth ’round each straw- berry vine and if you want the Press drop us a line. Plant some potatoes to put in the hash and remember the printer is short ot cash. Fix up a hill or so of beans and with ye editor di- vide your means.
