Mrs. Middleton's Report of P<
of the Convention.
On Wednesday evening a vf
pleasing program was carried o
which began with a stereoptic
lecture by John W. Wadraan, U. ]
of the Methodist church, on p
turesque Hawaii. He gave ns bei
tiful views of the most enchanti
flower-decked homes; views of t
pineapple groves, where our ce
Drated canned Hawaiian pjneapj
comes from; views of Queen Lil
home, church and burial spot; th
views of the natives feasting wi
a bottle sitting every few paces
the table. Ile said, as a sign
America's contribution to forei;
missionary fields, since the nativ
never knew of whiskey, until o
civilization was sent to them.
After this lecture, Mrs. El
Hoover Thacher, who has the c
partment of sailors and 6oldiei
was to tell of her work. When t
curtain on which the pictures f
the lecture had been thrown w
roiled up, there was revealed to t
audience a demonstration of wh
this department is doing, for on t
stage was a W. C. T. U. rest roc
reproduced, with sailors and 8(
diers-the real ones, too, not actii
ones-sittiug at tables writing, pla
ing games, laughing, talking
beautiful girls and women of I
District's W. C. T. U., and sor
were congregated about the pian
where they sang just as in ti
recreation roora9 for them on Pen
As a final touch, coffee was serv(
to a few (they could have served a
but hadn't time), though they sen
something "to eat" every night
the meal rooms, so Mrs. Thacb
told us, and when she said it, 01
of the boys said, "Yes, that's righ
and it's good." Then the bo;
lined up and sang for us. Wh(
they'd finished the audience arose ;
one man, waved tiny silk flag:
which every woman seemed to hav
and gave a cheer for the boy
Quick as a flash, a bright, handsorc
khaki-clad young athlete jumped i
front of the line, said a few word
and when the last words of women
cheer for them died away, the?
boys began a regular college yell fi

Then followed the presentation c
comfort bags, and their curiosity t
see all in them, reminded one c

antics some of the boys performed

JVIrs. Eila Hoover Thacher coul
not have pleased or edified her aud
ence any more, if she had talked a
hour or written a ream. Of course
there were some knitters in thi
scene, as, indeed, they seemed to b
every where in Washington. Beau
tiful girls dropped khaki colorei
wool, which they knitted into sweat
ers, to go to balls, and aged womel
carried gay cretou bags to and frc
knitting, knitting every time the;
sat for a minute. All over Poli'

work in Alaska, Canada or our owi
This scene of knitters served t<

Hon. Jeannette Rankin, congress
woman from Montana, was to speal:
to us at oue of the early meetings ol
the convention, but through a mis
understanding of date failed to be
present, though we were assured
she'd come some time.
Each session, we watched the wo
men on the stage to see if we could
pick her out, and were as much
amused at our own failure to do so,
as we wen* surprised when at
last she appeared. A little sweet
voiced modest, rather shy woman,
very pretty and youtlfful was led to
the front and introduced by Miss
Gordon, as Miss Kaukin. She was so
different looking and so different
acting from my imagina
tion that I believe I must have
gasped. She commended the W.
C. T. L'. for its work along edu
cational lines. She said she be
lieved the victories for prohibition
we are experiencing to-day are the
out-come ot the teachings to the
uh i ld r en of scientific temperance,
truths, a thing Miss Willard appre
ated very much, long ago, arid
further she added, if to-day, we
had facis concerning alcoholic .li
quors dissiminated among the peo
ple,it would'nt bu necessary for us to
ask for war prohibition, for we
know that tbe nation needs prohi
bition from the standpoint of food
and for the efficiency of the army,
but also tor the sake of social prob
lems to be dealt with at home
while the war is being waged.

indelible impression on the conven
tion, yet with very few words. She

"I suffered for years with various
troubles. 1 seemed al), run down
and failing fast. I imagine it was
stomach trouble and liver princi
pally that brought on all the com
plications that came later. I tried
several doctors and sent away to
-Buffalo, N. Y., but
their medicine did me no good. In
digestion, sour, bitter eruptions
from my stomach. Flatnlance, bil
liousness, torpid liver, weak and
nervous feeling, headaches, poor
blood and catarrh of long standing,
head noises and aches and pains un
til honestly when I look back at
those months and months of suffer

Trying to keep store and look cheer
ful with such ailments tugging and
pulling you down is awfully hard.
I owe my relief to a saleman who
walked in one day when I was suf
fering particularly bad, and he told
rae about Acid Iron Mineral. He
had been troubled the same way I
i was until he took Acid Iron Min?
j eral, and so on his recommendation
I started taking this great remedy.
I took three bottles and it did me a
world of good. ? felt better than I
have in years. I am blessed with
wonderful health and strength.

Acid Iron Minerai,"enthusiastically
states Mrs. E. Short of Van Dyke,
Any one, by taking a few drops
of Acid Iron Miterai mixed in wa
ter two or three times a day, can
be bent fitted wonderfully. It is
just plain, highly concentrated nat
urally iron. It is more powerful
and cheaper than weaker prepared
pills or preparations containing iron
as the chief medicihal element.
Every one knows iron is goud for
the blood and whole system, build
ing people up almost like magic.
The reason is plain. To make rich
blood you must have iron. With
out rich, red blood your strength
leaves you, blood gets clogged very
often with uric acid, causing rheu
matism troubles and the whole sys-J
tem becomes weakened and ran
Being very powerful a few drops
in a gla^s of water makes a dose.
It is sold only in original bottles
under "'A-I-M" trademark on the
bottle and carton. This is your
guarantee of full strength and
quality. Most druggists have it
and a "twelve ounce bottle costs but
a dollar and is a splendid invest
ment if the reader is in search of
something to clease, build up and
strengthen the system. Pallid, yel
low complexions soon disappear if
the thousands of users of the past
thirty years agree to be believed.

ilow did every one enjoy Christ
mas? I think mo6t every one had a
very pleasant time in this commu
nity, but oh! what awful bad weath
er we are now having, we feel like
we are near the "North Pole" for
a while. The grain has a tight pull
these cold winters, something un
usual for us to have so much snow.
Mr. Will DeLaughter motored to
Greenville last week to the camp,
and think he enjoyed himself un
til the snow began to fall so fast
and got so deep, that he began to
think he was visiting the north
pole, so he decided that "home
sweet home," was the best place af
ter all, and made bis way back,
but he got to s??e all the home boys,
and also run up on Mr. Monroe
Mathis and Mr. Ernest Quarles
while there. He was delighted toste
Mr. and Mrs. Ellis Peeler and
Mr. Jim Burnett were welcome vis
itors at the home of their mother,
Mrs. Carrie Burnett. They motored

We all had our mouths fixed
up on a turkey dinner at Mr. Will

bas postponed it until next Christ
