A Home Cure Given By
One Who Had It
In the iprlng of 1893 I was at
tacked by Muscular and Inflamma
tory Rheumatism. I suffered an only
those who have It know, for over throe
years. I tried remedy after remedy,
and doctor after doctor, but such re
lief as I received was only temporary.
Finally. 1 found a remedy that cured
me completely, and it has never re
turned. I have given it to a number
who were terribly afflicted and even
bedridden with Rheumatism, and it
effected a cure in every case.
I want every sufferer from any form
of rheumatic trouble to try tliis mar
velous healing power. Don't send a
cent; simply mail your name and ad
dress and I will send it free to try.
After you have used it and It has
proven Itself to be t hat tnng-lnoked-fnr
means of curing your rheumatism, you
may send the price of it. one dollar,
but understand, I do not want your
money unless you are perfectly satis
fied to send it. Isn't that fair. Why
suffer any longer when positive relief
Is thus offered you free. Don't delay.

Proves Among Most Effective Methods
to Keep up Factory Attendance.
A profit-sharing plan, under which
every employe realizes that by being
absent or late he Is cutting down his
own income and that of his fellows,
has been found effective by a Connec
ticut machinery plant for reducing
absenteeism by the Information and
Education Service, United States De
partment of Labor.
The plan also tends to create a pub
ic opinion within the plant against
irregular attendance, for slnro oil hha
employes have a personal Interest In
full production, they are keen to keep
. . , a any worlfer who may
fail to keep up to the work and encour
age him or bring pressure to bear on
him to stick to the job.
The premium system also has been
found successful in a numlber of fac
tories in Eastern States. A Massachu
setts company pays 5 per cent of his
wages to every workman who Is
neither absent nor tardy, and 5 per
cent, additional to those who remain
tor three months. A New York firm
pays a ,10 per cent premium for a
run week's work. An Illinois house
oners a 10 per cent premium to every
employe who Is neither late nor absent
for six months, and "docks" a work
er l per cent of his six months' pay
for each tardiness, 2 per cent for each
half-day's absence and 3 per cent for
every full day's absence.
The workman does not lose his pre
mium if he is absent because of ill
ness, In general, provided he shows
a physician's certificate.
In addition, most plants paying pre
miums provide welfare workers, who
follow up absentees and encourage
them and help them to return and
stick to for it cooperates with all
branches of their jobs.

Washington, D. C, December 4 Dr
Thomas Jesse Jones, who recently
went to France under the auspices of
the Y. M. C. A., has just sent Mr
Bmmott J. Scott. Special Assistant.
War Department, the following account
of the burial of a colored soldier at
A colored soldier was buried at sen
today. The flags on all the ships
of the fleet have been at half-mast all
day. It matters not that the soldier
came from a lowly cabin. It matters
not tnat nis sWn 's Mack. He Is a
soia-er in tne army of tne united
States and he was on his wav to fight
for Democracy and Civilization.
The announcement of his death was
signalled to every commander and
every ship prepared to do honor to the
colored soldier. As the sun was set
ting In the West, the guard of honor
including all the officers from the com
mander to the private came to at
tention. The body of the Negro
trooper wrapped In the American flag,
was tenderly carried to th estern of the
ship. The chaplain read the solemn
burial service. The engines of the
fleet were checked. The troop-ship
was stopped for the only time In the
long trip from America to Europe.
The bugle sounded Taps and the body
of the American soldier was committed
to the great ocean and to God.
The comradeship of the solemn oc
casion was the comradeship of real
Democracy. There was neither black
nor white, North nor South, rich nor
poor. All united In rendering honor
to the Negro soldier who died in the
service of humanity.
92d DIVISION MAKES PROUD
RECORD IN FRANCE.
Gallant Colored Fighting Machine
Wins Plaudits for Successful Raids
Against Germans In "No Man's
Land" Capably Led by colored Com
manders. By Ralph W. Tyler, ,
Accredited Representative of the Com

Article VII. ,
SOMEWHERE IN FRANCE The
colored people back In America can
well fqel proud of the record made by
the 92nd Division over here, which has
i about 600 colored 1 ne officers and
whose rank and file is ompoRed ex
clusively of colo.-ed soldiers. Hare is
the record of the 92nd as & combatant
regiment up to November 8th, 1913:
When the Marbache sector was taken
over by the 92nd Division ot "Black
Devils, " as the Germans call them,
"No Man's Land" was owned by the
Germans and here they were aggres
sively on the offensive. They, the
Germans, held Belie Farm Bois De
tote D'Or, Bois De Frehaut, Voivrotte
Farm Voivrotte Woods. Bois De
Chemiuot, and Moulon Brook. The
constantly aggressive action of par
trols, day and night, from the 92nd
has resulted in many causalties to the
Germans and the capture ot many pris
Each of the places named above
has been raided as has also Epley, and
patrols from the Division have pene-
trated north nearly to the east and I
west line through Pany. The Ger-1
mans have been driven north beyond
Frohaut and Voirvotte to Chemlnot
bridge and in his desperation the Hun
is attempting to dostroy the Seilie
Bridge, after having Hooded the Seilie,
proving conclusively that he regards
the black troops that compose the 92d
Division as one he cannot successful
ly withstand. West of the Seilie
river excellent results have followed
the energetic offensive action of this
doughty wing of the Allied Army, the
Germans losing heavily in killed and
wounded and prisoners. In nearly
every Instance, these raids made by
troopers of this Division have been
made under the command ot colored
This record made by these colored
soldiers must ,of necessity, arouse the
greatest enthusiasm back In "The
States" and merit the plaudits of the
race for the gallant fighting machine.
So wonderful have bee nthe achieve
ments of the 92nd that the Division
Commander was impelled to send out
a bulletin of congratulation, to be read
before each unit of the Division. This
proud record must forever set at rest
the question of colored soldiers fol
lowing and fighting under their own
officers, and it must forever establish
the efficiency of colored officers, who
have done splendidly under the most
END AUTOCRACY OF COLOR
Asks Colored American Editor in Ap
peal Wired to President Wilson
on the Eve of His Departure
for Peace Table.
Calls Color Line Greater Menace to
Permanent World Peace Than Hun
Militarism Just Overthrown.
Asks President to Aid the Oppressed
of All Nations, Races, Colors, Creed
and Sex in Realizing Liberty, Fra
ternity and Equality.
Saint Paul, Minn. Dec. 2, 1918.
To the President,
Washington, D. C.
Now that the world war is over and
military autocracy has been doomed,
I appeal to you as the representative
of the United States at the Peace
Table to demand the abolition of that
greater menace to the peace of the
world, THE AUTOCRACY OF COLOR.
Through the centuries the colored
races of the globe have been subjected
to the most unjust and inhuman treat
ment by the Bo-called white peoples.
Every atrooity which the Huns have
inflicted on the helpless white peoples
of the world during the four years of
war now ending, has been suffered by
the colored peoples of the world for
more than four hundred years.
In the recent war the colored races
have furnished as many men as the
white races have supplied, if the labor
and fighting units are both counted,
and now that victory has been won,
it is bu tjust that the color line which
has hampered the progress of the col
ored people, should be abolished at
once. Not only that, but the op
pressed of the white race should be
delivered from oppression.
Mr. President, I shall endeavor to
outline a program which should meet
the approval of every believer in world
1. Home rule for Ireland.
2. Home rule for India.
3. Home rule for all colonies which
4. Self-determination for the people
of all countries, in which the people
are practically all of one race or na
tionality and yet dominated and op
pressed by a few of a different race or
r The former German colonies to
become republics under the protection
of the League of Nations. These peo
ple are as capable of self-governmeiv
as the people of Russia, Germany, Tur
key, or the Balkan States.
G. The abrogation of the "White
Australia" legislation and the ac
knowledgement of the right of all peo
pies to acquire citizenship, fl
7. The repeal by the United States
of all anti-oriental immigration laws

and the acknowledgement of the riglit
of Japanese and Chinese and Malays
to become citizens.
8. The repeal ot all United States
laws classing certain Indians as non
citizens, all people of American Indian
blood to be immediately recognized as
9. The repeal of all laws of the
United States, or of any state, In which
the words colored, African, Afro-American,
Negro, Mulatto, Indian, Japanese
or Chinese are used for the purpose to
making discriminations against the
people of any race, nationality, class
or creed, and the iiiimemliate abroga
tion of any color line restrictions en
forced without warrant of law.
lu. The nations comprising the
League of Nations to be forbidden to
enact any legislation which in any way
discriminates against the people of the
Caucasian, Mongolian, African, Indian,
an(l Malay races, or against any na-
tionaiity, religious creed or sex
11. The free immigration of the peo
ple of any one country to any other
country having membership in the
League to be neither denied nor
abridged on account ot race, national
ity, class, color creed or sex.
The adoption of the foregoing rules
in the Constitution of the League of
Nations would not only mean freedom,
equality and democracy for all man
kind but would be an actual earthly
realization of the Fatherhood of God
and the Brotherhood of Man.
Trusting Mr. President, that you
will as the representative of our great
republic, advocate the principles I
have enumerated, I am.
Very truly yours,
JOHN Q. ADAMS,
Editor The Appeal.
