Use end Abuse of Medicines
Prejudice Warps Intelligence
Judgment Often Passed Through Ignorance
The Philadelphia Evening Ledger on 3d September had
a striking article on the PERIL OF DRUGS, as follows:
"Senator Frelinighuysen has asked
the Senate to appoint a commission to
in uire into the extent of the drug
ha it and recommend the best method
of regulating the sale of habit-forming
drugs. It is estimated that at least a
-. \million persons are habitual dru users.
Y'Ji -Many of them are in the pro ibition
- ' * districts of the South, where soda foun
--- - '.. - tain drinks containing caffein are sold
, -in large quantities. Now that there is
a possibility that the whole nation may
become "dry," it is important that the
" Government be prepared to deal with
an evil greater than alcohol. Alcohol
Tr aeTark is bad enough but it does not destroy
1s1 men and women so quickly as the
habit-forming drugs, nor does it ever
-; get so firm a hold on its victims."
If you are ill, send for a physician,
tell him your troubles. After diag
nosing your case he writes a prescription, which you take or send to your drug
gist, who com pounds the same, giving you the directions when and how to take
it. You woul not think of taking the prescription otherwise than directed.
Should you use it up in larger quantities your mind cannot be normal. Why,
then, when you burchase a proprieta.iy medicine, which in many instances saves
a doctor's and druggists bill, do you not follow the directions plainly printed on
the bottle? There is no excuse for those who take larger quautities than di
rected. Nux-Iron-Paw-Paw Compound is the result of a quarter of a century
research and oxperience of over twenty skilled physicians and from unquestion
able indorsements of people residing in most of the civilized world will be found
the best and safest Tonic ever put on the market.
All we ask is, take it accor ing to directions. If you are run down, nervous,
debilitated or constipated you will find quick relief and ultimate recovery of
The formula is on every bottle and you are taking an honest Tonic on the
wine basis without addition of any alcohol or bad whiskey compounded with the
best known drugs for the special object of restoring your strength and stomach
to what they should be to enjoy perfect health.
In your anxiety to get better quickly, don't overdo it, as many suffers do,
and take larger doses of this standard remedy. It will not act any faster and
you will not receive the same benefits from. its use you otherwise would.

Great Organizations Which Are
Helping to Keep Up the Morale
of Fighting Millions Unite in
Campaign for $170,500,000.
With millions of American men on
war fronts, in training camps and on
the seas and with thousands of Ameri
can women on foreign soil, all engaged
in the stupendous task of making the
world safe for democracy, a great duty
devolves upon those who remain in
the, United States,-the duty of send
ing Home to those who have pitt Iome
behind them for the period of the war.
The agencies through which this can
be accomplished are joined in the
United War Work Campaign.
From being given the cigarette or
chocolate bar, with which he stays his
hunger in the fury of battle, to the
theatrical ehtertainment or the ath
letle games, which relax him into nor
mal comfort after weeks of terrific
combat, the American fighter Is de
pendent upon the continued efYorts of
the Y. M. C. A., the Y. W. C. A., the
National Catholic War Council and K.
of C., the War Camp Community Serv
ice, the Jewish Welfare Board, the
American Library Association and the
Salvation Army. To carry on this
work the combined welfare organiza
tions are seeking a fund of $170,500,
The Y. Al. C. A. provides 538 huts in
American training camops and more
than 800 in the war zone as centres
whihl the fighters can use as clubs,
schools, theatres, stores, churches, li
braries and writing rooms. More than
7,000 mhen and women had been sent
overseas or approved for overseas
work by early autuum and 3,822 were
serving in American camps at home.
Y. M. C. A. huts are the canteens of
the Amerlean Expeditionary Force and
are the theatres where the American
entertainers, sent over by the "Y," ap
pear. Noted American public men and
clergymen speak in the huts. Classes
are conducted there. Millions of letters
are written there on paper provided
free by the "1." Physical directors of
the "Y" teach and spread mass ath
leties, using material furnished free
by the organization.
The Y. W. C. A. loes similar work
for the thousands of American womenI
in war work overseas-signlal corps
telephone operators, nurses and
French munition workers. It provides
cafeterias, rest and recreation centres,
entertainment and reading for these
women and girls.

58 JEWISH WORKERS
GOING "OVER THERE"
Col. Barker Bids Godspced to
the Graduates of Train
The whole-souled co-operation be
tween the seven great organizations
working for the happiness and welfare
of our soldiers and sailors was re
cently illustrated at the graduation
exercises of the tenth class of the
Jewish Welfare Board's Training
School in New 'ork. Col. William S.
Barker, who we h to France repwesent
ing the Salvation Army with the first
contingent of our troops and has been
"over there" fifteen months, was the
princip~ai speaker and wlihed thie flfty
eight Jewish wyorkers of the class God
speed, while Louis Marshall, the proml- -
nent Jewish attorney and phnilanthro
p)1st of New York, lauded the wvork of
the Salvation Army among the boys
at the front.
"What our fighting boys need Ia In
spirat ion andl heart and~ charneter in
those who are there to help them,''
dieciaredl C2o. Barker. "You will rep
resent in the camps and overseas the
ideals and standlards of tihe Jewvish
faith, and it is up to you above all
things to be0 consistent in your re
ligious practices. Practice what you
pireachm. That, I am sure, has been
the secret of our owvn success. If you
live up to the pr'inciples of your faith
and give ithat you have to give from a
heart big with love, the boys willilre
spect you, wheth~er they be P'rotestant,
Caitho~lle or Jew."
T1he newly gradluatedl field workers
will maike a total of 200 men dloing

of tihe Jew~sh Welfare Board. T1he
Board has about fifty "huts" in the
various camps andt maintains centers
in all large cities where soldiers and
sailors of all faiths are welcomed. A
headquarters has recently been estabI

T1here are now nearly 125,000 Jews

sommander Evangeline Booth
Says War Relief Work
Must Be Extended.
Commander Evangeline Booth, lead
r of the Salvation Army in the Unit
,d States, has been suddenly called
ipon to furnish 800 additional war
vork women for France. The request
s contained in a report just received
.y her from Col. William A. Barker
f the Salvationist forces, whom she
sent to France over a year ago to es
lablish hutment and general war reliet
work with the American troops.
"We will do all we can to fill this
'natd," said Commander Booth when
:liscussing the approaching United
War Work Campaign, "and the need
Itself should impress the American
public all the more with the absolute
necessity for sustaining and enlarging
the war relief work of the seven or
ganizations, besides the noble Red
Cross, now merged for a drive for
funds. Each Is a vital cog in a vast
machine for human relief, and each is
indispensible, 'serving its particular
elements in its own waly.
"The Salvation Army was born in
hardship, reared in privation and
trained to every phase of human nia
ery and how to cope with it. Perhaps
that accounts in some degree for the
success our work has attained and for
which we are thankful.
"We are of the common people, and
we toil on a practical basis. We learn
ced the lesson of how to do it in the
Bloer war, when we stood at the sidie
of Britain's troops and weathered it
out to the end. Wec have been triedl
by fire, and the mothers and( fathers
of Amerlea, as in other countries, trust
the Salvation Army to do tihe thinig
they would likec to do for their men if
they but had the chance.
