In the monthly report for July by

deaths to 52 births; Rutherford, with
45 deaths to 44 births, and Shelby

more births than deaths, save in Van
.. Buren county, where a tie game result-
ed between the Stork and the Grim
Reaper, the score being 3 each.

births almost doubled the deaths, there

YEAR8 OF EXPERIENCE.
Cambridge, Mass., has been a tem
perance city for 26 consecutive years.
In October, 1913, Its mayor gave out
the following facts:
Population 59,000 110,000
Valuation . . . .$59,445,670 $117,186,400
deposits $6,560,934 $26,243,736
Depositors .... 21,215 63,645
This, the mayor believes, Is more
than the natural or ordinary increase
and undoubtedly due to the no-license
The number of children attending
public schools in 1886 was 9,631, of
whom 516 were in the1 high school.
In 1913 there were 16,000 public
school children, of whom more than
2,000 were In the high schools. "This,"
points out Mayor Bary, "shows a
marked increase in the number ot
children who by reason of better: con
ditions are privileged to continue their
education in the higher grades."
Concerning the , effects of temper
ance upon the business Interests o,f
the city, he says: "During the years
there have located in this city over
twenty new concerns representing
'various industries. It appears that
these new concerns employ absu two
thousand persons, with annual pay
rolls ot over $1,000,000, and have ex
pended for suitable buildings to carry
on their industries in this city over
"We have it from some of the busi
ness men who have recently come to
Cambridge that one of the principal
things that attracted them to locate
here with a large number of employes
was the fact' that Cambridge is well
established as a no-license city."
Writing on "What Science Sayt
About Alcohol" in a recent number ot
Munsey's Magazine, Mr. Burton J. Hen
drick alludes to the differing methods
employed by physicians and laboratory
workers. "The latter," he says "care
nothing for theories and 'inherited
knowledge;' they submit everything
to experimentation to the test tube
and microscope. The remarkable fact
Is," he continues, "that, though the
doctors may disagree about alcohol,
as about many, other things, the scien
tists apparently never do. Practically
all who have really experimented have
rendered the verdict strongly against
it. Alcohol in their view is not a stim
ulant, it Is not an 'appetizer,' or an
aid to digestion, It ie not a food in any
real meaning of the word, it is not an
inspiration and help to mental work
and it does not increase muscular ac
tivity. In other words, cold-blooded
modern science brands as untrue prac
tically all the claims for alcohol which
poets, philosophers, convivialists and
even physicians have made since thf
beginning of civilization."
A LIVE TOPIC.
The subject most universally dis
cussed, aside from the weather, is that
of " temperance. , In the '. newspaper
world it is no longer the country week
ly and the small city dally, but the
great metropolitan papers, as well. In
the smoking compartments of Pullman
cars, at week-end parties, on the porch,
in the family circle,, among business
men at their desks, everywhere, sup
pression of the liquor trafflo is the llv
est question up for general discussion
before the American, public. , The
magazines, too, are devoting much
space to the discussion. Story writers
are teaching the lesson of the value
of abstinence and the worthlessness of
the man who drinks. It is no longer
the lonesome fight ot the preachers
and . the extremists; conservative com
mon sense and consecrated patriotism
have also taken up the cudgel against
the business of legalizing the selling nf

At midnight, June SO. Secretary Dan

John Barleycorn walked the plank of

was one of interest, say the press dis

Mexican waters. On board the New

FREE FROM MISSTATEMENTS.
The Associated Advertising Clubs ot
America at its annual convention in
Toronto discussed the question of
newspapers accepting liquor adver
tising. While some of the delegates
were of the opinion that such was
"clean advertising" provided it was
free from misstatements, the general
sentiment was against this practice.
The heartiest applause was given
when Mr. E. C. Clifford of the Minne
apolis Journal In a strong, incisive
speech condemned "booze advertle

to have sustained a cracH about
twenty-two inches long and one-third

GOODYEAR TIRES AT
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.
announce "No war prices on Goodyear
Tires," Mr. F. A. Sleberllng, president
of the Company, thus explains their
"We advanced Goodyear prices, as
others did theirs, when the rubber
panic came. Almost in a day crude
rubber rose in New York from 65 cents
per pound to much over a dollar. .
"The New York supply was too
small to consider. We cabled our
London people to buy up the pick of
the rubber there. By acting quickly
and paying cash they obtained 1,500,
000 pounds of the finest rubber.
"That big supply of rubber is now
nearly all on the way to the Goodyear
factory In Akron. It constitutes the
best of the London supply. '
"We 'are using the same grade of
rubber and the same amount of it as
we always have used in these tires.
"We are running our factory with
three shifts of men, twenty-four hours
a day, So long as we remain in this
fortunate position on rubber, we shall
supply tire users at before-war prices
to the limit of our capacity."
Too Little "Puritan Restraint."
The Puritan restraint which rested
so marvelously long upon American
customs and manners has lifted, un
til, some of our critics believe, self
control, discipline, conscience, are
seriously threatened. The pendulum
is swinging far. Only one thing can
help us, Prof. Hugo Munsterberg says,
and that is to plant in the heart of
every boy and girl a belief in self
control. "The pursuit of happiness" is an
ideal which ranks in the American
mind with the pursuit of life and lib
erty. We're not going back to Puri
tanism. But the "pursuit of happi
ness" can be overdone. From the Delineator.
' RASH ON CHILD'S HEAD
2127 Division St., Baltimore, Md.
"The trouble on my child's face and
head appeared as a rash and then it
got so that the skin looked drawn and
water and blood would run out. That
would cause a scab and her head and
face were a mass of sores. They
would crack and bleed and then her
head began to get scaly and I thought
it was dandruff. I started to take the
scab off and found her head was a
mass of them. When she would cry
it seemed worse because the water
would stream down her face and itch
and she would dig and scratch. Her
little head was bald as it was so sore
that all the hair came out. My baby
used to cry at night and I could not
sleep. , ,
"Then I decided to get Cutlcura Soap
and Ointment. I would make a latner
of the Cutlcura Soap but her face and
head were so sore I hated to touch
them so I would take a soft cloth and
wash her head. After I dried it with
a soft towel I would gently apply the
Cutlcura Ointment With the first
treatment I could see a change in my
baby and before I used the whole
treatment she was completely healed
and her skin is beautiful." (Signed)
