Since this is true, we ought to see that our health is good, for our own sake and for the sake of others. Principle* in Personal and Public Health: As we want our bodies to be the dwelling places of the Holy Spir t. we ought to see that our bodies are clean from dirt and disease, as our souls ought to De rree from sin. If the Holy Spirit Is to dwell in the community, it ought to be cleaned up. If it is cleaned up morally and spiritually, physical and hygienic* cleaning up w 11 very likely follow. We ought to do all in our power to make and keep our own bodies and lives clean and then join earnestly and heartily with others to see what we can do to clean up our community as to its physical condi tions, as to its morals and as to its spiritual life. WHISKEY FOR THE "FLU." A Chicago Congressman, in pretend ed anxiety to prevent an epidemic of influenza, has introduced a hill in the House to suspend the Volstead en forcement act for a period of ninety days, that it may become easy for those suffering from the dread disease to supply themselves with whiskey, which he avows is a cure. He does not expect the bill to puss. It was not introduced for that pur pose. He hopes to arouse sentiment against national prohibition by mak ing it appear that those who stand back of the policy are utterly heart less and would rather see people die than to be cured by the use of an alcoholic beverage. Scant attention will be paid to his bill either in or out of Congress. While there are a few doctors who will serve the evil purpose of the li quor traffic by lending the use of their names in the propagation of the the ory that whiskey is a cure for the "flu," the great majority of practi tioners would not use it, however eas ily it might be obtained. Those who are informed know that, as a medi cine, doctors are able to provide their patients with whatever amount of al coholic stimulant may be required, and this without any change what ever in the law. The answer to the Chicago Con gressman is not difficult to make. While he is struggling to make al cohol free in the United States in or der to prevent the "flu," the papers report on the very same day on which he introduced his bill that there were six thousand cases ? not of whiskey ? but of influenza i:a Havana, Cuba There were probaoly many more cases of whiskey. If that be/erage, freely imbibed, is a cure for influenza, one wonders why the epidemic has grown to such large proportions in the near est great city to the United States where drink can be had without dif ficulty. It won't work. Wet Congressmen may introduce bills ana shed crocodile tears, but it is safe to predict that the epidemic of influenza will not be as violent as was the last one under the wet regime. It is not the people who are dying which worries the wets. It is John Barleycorn. ? National Enquirer. CONYKUTED AUTOMOBILES.
