principal roles, those of Richard Voy

Do you know that there are, today,
thousands upon thousands of poor,

are afflicted (as, possibly,
you are afflicted) with some form of

what it is. There may be other minor
derangements, too but look out for
your kidneys and bladder.
Whenever there is anything wrong
with the Kidneys and IMadder, a good
way to be sure of the fact is to give
an honest remedy, such as De Witt's

Poor Light, Bad Air, Crowded Rooms
Contribute to Spread of Disease.
At a meeting In Washington, attended by leading educators and rep
resentatives of workingmen, the sentiment was unanimous that the bad
air, poor light and crowded rooms in many schools and factories contri
buted largely to the spread of consumption. Samuel Gompers, as presi
dent of the American Federation of Labor, maintained that by causing
a reduction in the hours of labor, and securing higher wages, which made
it possible to provide better sustenance, the federation had done much
to assist in the great work of stamping out the disease.
While much has been accomplished in the fight against consumption,
it is necessary for each individual to take every precaution against con
tracting the disease. Coughs and colds are a prolific source, and must not
be neglected A simple, inexpensive and effective remedy is made by
mixing two ounces of glycerine, a half ounce of Virgin Oil of Pine com
pound pure and eight ounces of pure whisky. A teaspoonful, four times
a day, will usually break up a cold in 2 4 hours and cure any cough that
