times realize. 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.
I have hoard people in other coun
try towns complain that the automo
biles were keeping people away from
church. I learned that in Garretts
ville, O., there are a half dozen men
who make several trips every Sunday
morning to take people to and from
church. ? Christian Herald.
