When you are "juse ready to drop,"
?when you feel so weak that you can
hardly drag yourself about?and be

Miss Lea Dumas writes from Ma
lone, N. Y., saying: "I was In a badly
run-down condition for several weeks,
hut two bottles of Vinol put me on
my feet again and made nie strong
and well. Vinol has done nie moro
good - than all the other medicine I
If the careworn, haggard men and
women, tho pale, sickly children and
feeble old folks around here would
follow Miss Dumas' example, they,
too, would soon be able to say that
Vinol, our delicious cod liver/and iron
Temedy, had built them tWaud mado

The object of Mothers' Da>* Is to re
call the memories of the mothers that
are gone and through loving words
and loving care to brighten the lives
of the mothers that remain; to help
children and men and women to great
er blesslugs In honoring their fathers
and their mothers.
This day will call back mother's
prayers, mother's dying words, and
the promises made to mother by the
big boy that still mourns her. On this
day he will stop to think a little of
what she was In her life to her family.
Orthors who are blessed with their
good mother still near them, may
show then- appreciation by some deed
of gratitltde and love. If away from
home, write her a love letter, send a
telegram, use the long-distance 'phone
or special delivery ,->f the postotlice.
Mothers' Day is for every creed,
class, race and country. It is not de
nominational. Social, fraternal, civil,
military and religious organizations;
official, professional and business
classes are all asked to pay homage
to mothers on the second Sunday in
While any white flower may be
worn, the white caration is the Moth
ers' Day special Flower. Its white
ness stands for purity; its form for
beauty; its fragrance for love; Its
wide Held of growth signifies charity;
its lasting qualities, faithfulness?all
a true mother's attributes.
The day may be observed through
special sermons, exercises, or address
es in honor of "Our Mothers," and by
the wearing and distribution of the
white flower in connection with such
occasion. Generous provision should
be made for getting to special ser
vices the aged and other "shut-Ins."
Mothers' Day affords opportunity for
us as a nation to pay tribute to our
country-women who, as pioneers, col
onists, and as "best citizens" in war
and peace rendered to their country
noble and valiant service through
their sufferings, privations and hero
These "heroes of heroes" in ni'iiy
Instances not only sacrificed their
own lives through their many hard
ships, but loyally gave to their coun
try lives more precious to them than
their own?the lives of their hus
bands, sons, fathers and brothers!
ESvery race and class of our brave
patriots are, praised and tholr graves
decorated on the Memorial Days of the
North and South, but these true-heart
ed and noble women have not been
honored by us as a nation!
These heroic country women are not
buried in our national cemeteries,
but the memory of their suffering and 1
sorrow is burled In the mother-loving
and patriot hearts of our people.
So the chivalrous, the grateful, the
mother-loving of the North, South,
East and West, are asked oil the sec
ond Sunday of our National Memorial
month of May to wear next to their
hearts a simple white flower -prefer
ably the white carnation -that we as
patriots, as comrades, and as sons and
daughters, miay show gratcVuil and
If possible send a white flower to
others as a message of sympathy or
brotherhood. Remember the sick or
unfortunate in hospitals, homes or
prisons, and those who labor on this
May Sunday for your comfort.
If we all give our hearts to this
loving service, it may become one of
the most beautiful days of our lives.
