THE MACON BEAtfON, MACON, MISS. A CHILD'S BOWELS iS&msas ' It is cruel to force nauseating, harsh physic into a sick child. Look back at your childhood days. Remember the "dose" mother, insisted on castor oil, calomel, cathartics. How you bated them, bow you fought against taking them. With our children It's different Mothers who cling to the old form of physic simply don't realize what they , do. The children's revolt Is well-founded. Their tender little "lnsides" are Injured by them. If your child's stomach, liver and bowels need cleansing, give only dell clous "California Syrup of Figs." Its action is positive, but gentle. Millions of mothers keep this harmless "fruit laxative" handy; they know children love to take It; that It never fails to clean the liver and bowels and sweet en the stomach, and that a teaspoonful given today saves a sick child tomor row. Ask at the store for a 60-cent bottle of "California Syrup of'Figs," which baa full directions for babies, children of all ages and for grown-ups plainly on each bottle. Adv. NOT TO BE CAUGHT NAPPING Uncle Tobe Lived Up to Hla Reputa tion and the Doctor Lost ' His Bet. There lives In a certain Vermont town a quaint old character known as "Uncle Tobe," who is so con servative of action and speech that It is almost difficult at times to get any thing definite from him. Undo Tobe, like the Father of His Country, has the reputation of never having told a He, and in addition he Is so cautious of 'statement that he has never been known to tell an Innocent untruth. On one occasion his doctor. In con versation with friends touching Uncle Tohe's characteristics, ventured to lay a bet of five dollars that he could cause Uncle Tobe to tell what wasn't so. A neighbor promptly took the bet The doctor walked into Uncle Tobe's house next morning, and while he was talking with the old man, the neighbor who had taken the bet drove up to the gate. Uncle Tobe went to see what he wanted, and then the doctor, as he had agreed to do, went out the back door and hid In the barn. "Good morning, Tobe," said the vis itor, "is the doctor in your house?" . "He was there when I came out," said Uncle Tobe.

I W JtS 3 (Conducted by the National Woman' Christian Temperance Union.) FOUND TWO BILLION DOLLARS. A sure way of solving the problem of the high cost of living is forcefully Indicated by Dan Poling In an appeal to the voters of the country. "Have you ever stopped to consider," he lays, "what two billion "dollars would lo toward solving that problem? "Do you think that It would help If ire could find two billion dollars some KhereT ; . "We have found two billion dollars! Two billion dollars worse than lost! In round numbers, the drink bill of the United States represents an in vestment In body, mind and soul de itructlon of $91.00 for each family in the country. When we remember that there, are unnumbered families that have no drink bill at all, we begin to form a hazy conception of the drink ing families of the nation. Liquor money Is generally bread money, meat money, shoe money, and money that ought to be spent for clothing. Some stomach goes hungry for bread, some feet go poorly shod, some body goes Inadequately clothed, In order that the liquor trafflo may gratify the unspeak able appetite It creates for unnecesi sary strong drink." DESTROY THE DESTROYER. In his book, "Man's Value to Soci ety," Rev. Dr. Newell Dwlght Hnils says: "Statisticians reckon the aver age man's value at $600 a year., Each worker in wood, Iron or brass stands for an engine or Industrial plant worth $10,000, producing at 6 per cent, an Income of $600. The death of the av erage workman, therefore, Is equiva lent to the destruction of a $10,000 mill or engine. The economlo loss through the non-productivity of 20,000 drunkards Is equal to one Chicago Are, Involving $200,000,000." This does not take into account the cost of the crime and pauperism which 20,000 drunkards entail npoti the public, nor the degeneracy of drunkards' offspring which adds enor mously to the economic loss through nonproductivtty and Irect criminal ity. By the license system this nation Is deliberately destroying each year Its chief assets. The liquor trafflf must go! OUT OF A JOB. . , The cry Is sometimes made that if saloons are voted out saloonkeepers will lose their .lobs and their families will suffer. Did it ever occur to you, pertinently asks an exchange, that if the saloons are not voted out, hun dreds of the patrons of the saloons will lose their Jobs and their families will suffer? When a saloonkeeper puts a man out of a Job, he disgraces the man and hiB family, and unfits him for an other Job. When prohibition puts a saloonkeeper out of a Job, be be comes a more honorable citizen, his family becomes more honorable and the community secures a wealth-producing workman Instead of a wealth' destroying workman. NEW COMMANDMENT. The voice of science speaks with greater authority than ever before; and the average man is beginning to believe that it is the voice of God speaking to his children. Science, industry, philanthropy, patriotism, re ligion and common sense are today thundering from a hundred Slnals the divine command: "Thou shalt not use alcohol In any form, neither thou nor thy president, nor thy army, nor thy navy, nor thy physician, nor thy pas tor, at the communion table, nor thy teacher, nor thy railroad engineer, nor thy chauffeur, nor anyone who dwells within thy borders." Rev. Henry Stauffer in Union Signal. SELLING PASSWORD FOR DRINK. Surgeon General Evatt, speaking in London, not long Bgo, dwelt upon the deplorableness of drink among wom en, adding "for a woman to drink Is like selling the password In the field of bottle." This is a unique and powerful way of describing the effect of drink, not only on women, but on men. Alas, how many have lost in the battle of life by selling the pass word of success and happiness for strong drink! Lillian M. N. Stevens INJURIOUS WORK OF BEER.

Something In This Name. In New York a teacher found that a little negro girl was named Fertiliz er Johnson. "Are you sure that Fertilizer is your right name?" she asked. "Yes, ma'am," replied the little girl. "Well, tell your mother to come here," said the teacher. The mother came the next day. "Yes; Fertilizer is right," she Bald, "You Bee, I named her after her father and mother both. Her father's name Is Ferdinand and my name is Liza, so we called her Fertilizer." Not a Misdemeanor. Colonel Carter had been playing golf for but three months. Therefore, when the secretary of the club saw the col onel playing his ball several feet In front of the tee disks during a touma ment he thought the veteran soldier had forgotten the rules. "Colonel! Colonel!" he exclaimed "you must play from behind the tee disks!" The colonel's face turned red, but he preserved his dignity.

All druggists sell resinol soap and resinol ointment Adv. Ammunition Used in War. How much ammunition does a mod- fern army use? We shall not know until after the war what the German and the allied forces have been ex pending; but we know what the Ger mans used in 1870-71. The total for rifles was 30,000,000 cartridges, for field artillery 3C2.000 rounds. It Is worth noting that battles are much less costly in ammunition than sieges. The siege of Strassburg alono cost, weight for weight, three times the amount of ammunition used in all the decisive battles and actions through out the whole war. Of course these figures are a mere bagatelle com pared with those of the present strug gle, with its millions of soldiers and Ita quick-firing guns and its week-long battles. Manchester Guardian. For and Against Cremation. Cremation seems to be becoming a necessity, especially around the large centers of population, declare advocates of the practice. At the rate at which cemeteries are Increas ing around such cities as New York and London, each of which requires about twenty-four acres of additional land annually to bury the dead. It has been predicted that the cities of the llvini will be veritably encompassed by "cities of the dead." Humanity Is reluctant to give up the age-long practice of inhumation, some anti cremutionists declaring that "when the body is consumed by heat the soul is at the same time destroyed." Legal-minded objectors also point out that "It destroys all evidence of crime where murder by poison has been committed." In reply the cremation ists argue "that cremation is the only hygienic, sanitary ar-d economic meth od of disposing of our dead." Its Kind. "What's call money?"
