Herman Phillips carries numer
ous scars that might have been the
reason for giving him a military
funeral, but he survived tliem. At
Chaateau Thierry on July 28, 1918,
both his legs were broken and he
received a bayonet wound along one
forearm and a dagger thrust through
the wrist. The. scar of another
wound is on the top of his head.
The Cost of Wool in a Suit.
The cost of raw wool makes little
difference to the cost of a suit.
The New York State College of
Agriculture, in a recent statement,
points out that a man's suit contains
about three yards and a quarter of
cloth, or eight pounds of wool, cost
ing, say $5. If shoddy is used in
stead of wool, from 75c to $3 may be
saved on the first cost but there is
no real saving to the customer, as
the suit wears out so much faster.
"Shoddy" 4s the technical term
for wool that has been re-worked. If
it is made from woolen rags, or
clothing that has seen much hard
service, it probably has not much
wearing value if made into clothing.
On the other hand, shoddy made
from high class tailors' clippings
may give better service than if made
from some of the low.grade virgin
wools.,

to .produce the Clinic held the first
of June was not in vain.
The child specialist, Dr. Watts of
Creston examined 56 children, twelve
of which may be benefitted by the
Perkin's law, which provides hospital
care and treatment by the state to an
those who really do not have the
means to have a long course of
treatment otherwise. The Haskel
Klans Law* provides for adults in
the same way.
Forty-four of the 56 children were
found to be held in iU health by
tonsils, aednoids and defective teeth.
Dr. A. Fred Watts recommends
every tooth being cared for, tem
porary fillings for temporary teeth,
but clean them up.
Dr. Peck, T. B. specialist of Des
Moines diagnosed four cases out of
fifteen suspects as actually having T.

proper living will escape the disease.
These cases are invited to confer with
Miss Stallard in regard to proper liv
