- The great national United War
Work Campaign is to be carried on
jointly by-the seven welfare bodies
recognized by the War Department in
Europe. This is at the suggestion of
President Wilson and the following
organizations will participate: The
Y. M. C. A., the Y. W. C. A., the
Knights of Columbus, the Jewish
Welfare Board, the American Library
Association, the War Camp Commu

As originally planned, the week
of Nov. 11th, was to be given over
to the Y. M. C. A., the Y. W, C. A.,
the War Camp Community Service
and the American Library Associa
tion to raise $130,500,000 for their
united work the coming year. The
Knights of Columbus, the Jewish
Welfare Board and the Salvation
Army were to stage a similar drive
the middle of January. At the recent
request of President Wilson all seven
agencies are now to unite in one big
drive the week of November 11th and
the goal has been set at $170,500,000,

This meeting will be attended by

DON'T CRIPPLE PRODUCTION.
(New York Commercial.)
We must conserve money and credit
for the winning of the war, but we
must not cripple production. The
cost of this war must come out of
the wealth we create as we go along.
Banks are the trustees of the people.
Their actual capital is only a drop
in the bucket. Ninety per cent, of
the money they lend consists of the
deposits they receive, and these de
posits come from the people who pro
duce real wealth. If the banks are
forced to refuse money to merchants
and manufacturers, and trade and in
dustries are crippled, the sources of
taxation and subscriptions for lib
erty bonds will be dried up. Amer
ica is threatened with interferences
with ordinary business that may
lessen the ability of the people to
supply the sinews -of' war.- For this
reason official letters of J advice to
banks to curtail the extension of
credit are creating anxiety. The bet
ter way would be to stimulate pro
duction and create new wealth upon
which' the G'oVefrfmeht could draw.

TO AILING WOMEN
A Little Sound Advice Will
Many a Sufferer in Paris.
No woman should consider herself
bealthy and well if the kidneys are
weak. Poisons that pass off in the
secretions when the kidneys are well
are retained in the body when the
kidneys are disordered. If the kid
neys and bladder become inflamed
and swollen worse troubles may
quickly follow. This is often the
cause of bearing-down pains, lame
ness, backache, etc. Uric poisoning is
also frequent cause of headaches, diz
zy spells, languor, nervousness and
When suffering so, try Doan's Kid
ney Pills, a remedy that has proven
effective in thousands of such cases.
Let a Paris woman tell of her expe
rience. Mrs. A. L. Burley, 329 Eighth St.,
says: "I have used Doan's Kidney
Pills, getting them from the Ardery
Drug Co., and from the benefit I re
ceived, I certainly think they are a
good, reliable remedy. Whenever my
kidneys have acted irreguarly or my
back has been weak and lame, I have
used a box or so of Doan's Kidney
Pills. They have always relieved me
of the complaint."
