OF INTEREST TO WOMEN
T WOMEN IN WAR£ By Albert Payson/Terhune J Betsy Roes, the Maker of Old Glory. A few years ago about one million loyal Americans raised fho turn of $25.00«, to buy and maintain a narrow, little, two and a half-story cottage at No. 239 Arch street, Philadelphia. The plain little house is a shrine, ror in its quaint back parlor Old Glory was born. The house, Ht. y ears ago, was the home 'of a Quaker widow, who Worked as an upholsterer and seamstress. She was Mrs. Elizabeth Ross. History re members her lovingly as "Betsy Ross." For centuries, the various flags of England had waved over our land. When we declared our independence we-had no regular flag of our own for our new-born country. • Massachusetts troops carried a white flag with a green pine tree on it. New York's armed ships flew a banner bearing the device of a beaver. South Caro lina had a rattlesnake flag, etc. Presently the Revolutionary army adopted a flag with 13 alternate red and white stripes, one for each patriot colony, and with the crosses of St. George and St. Andrew on a blue field in on«^ corner. But there was hot protest against using these two British cross designs on an American flag, so congress appointed a committee to plan a National banner. The coat of arms of the Washington family consisted of a shield bearing blue stars and red stripes. A modification of this coat of arms was decided , on bv the committee as the device for our country's AID OF MRS. ROSS new flag. A rough sketch of the design was drawn. IS REQUESTEO. Then the committee carried this sketch to Mrs. Ross' shop to have a flag made from it which should serve as a model for all others. » Mrs. Ross was a meek Quaker, but she had some very decided Ideas of her own. and she did not. hesitate to bring these ideas before the committee. After a glance at their sketch she led the delegates into her back parlor and then proceeded to point out certain errors in the design they had shown her. Chief among these was the fact that they had drawn stars with six points. These stars belonged to English heraldry, but Retsy explained they did not belong on an American flag. In their place she suggested five-pointed Stars. In a day or two Mrs. Ross proudly handed over the completed banner to the committee, unfurling to their gaze the first model of Old Glory. Even before congress formally adopted litis (on June 14, 1777), Betsey was kept busy, day and night, sewing flags ordered by enthusiastic patriots. This formal "adoption" by congress read as follows: "RESOLVED, That the Hag of the Thirteen United States, bo thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the 'union' be thirteen stars, white, in a blue field, representing a new constellation." NEW CONSTELLATION Congress also placed an order with Betsy for a OF STARS. set of flags for our country's tiny fleet. Eor this Job she received 14 pounds 12 shellings and 2 pence, and the appointment of offical flagmaken for the government. A German named Leutze later painted the familiar picture of "Washington Crossing the Delaware." In this picture the Father of his Country is depicted as standing up in the boat, while near him waves the American flag. Wash ington crossed the Delaware in December, 1776. The American flag was not even designed until the next year. This blunder of the picture has often been pointed out. It Is now claimed that "Washington Crossing the Delaware" was painted by Leutze In Germany, not In America, and that the Rhine, not the Delaware, is the river he depicted. Also, that he used German soldiers as Ills models for tho Continental patriots In Washington's boat. One of these "patriots" in the picture is said to bear a striking resemblance to pictures of Frederick the Great.

Our Boys in France : and Home Protection Tbe men on the firing line represent the pick of our American youth. One in four of our boys at home was sick, rejected because of physical deficiency. Many times the kidneys were to blame. If we wish to prevent old age coming on too soon, or if we went to increase our chances for a long life, Dr. Pierce of the Surgical Institute, Buffalo, S. Y., says that we should drink plenty of water daily between meals. Then pro cure at the nearest drug store, Anuric (doublq strength). The cost is 60 cts. This "An-uric" drives tiic uric acid out and curee backache and rheumatism. If we wish to keep our kidneys in tlie best condition a diet of milk and vegetables, with only little meat once a day, is the most suitable. Drink plenty of pure water, take Anuric three times a day for a month. Send Dr. Pieree ten cents for trial package. "Anuric"—many times more potent than lithia, eliminates urb acid as hot water melts sugar. A short trial will convince you. Dwykr. Wyomino.— "I saw the Anuric Tablet« advertised and thought I would try them. They do jus* what they are recommended to do I will keep them on band all the time hereafter. I «tas both ered quite often gettiife up through tho night. I took two package* or the Anuric Tablets and haven t been bothered with my kidneys since.'—C. M. Claus. HoqiiAM.

Certain forms which arise i n glandVi, such as the breast, are called carcinoma and this sort spreads slowly to places where there are small nodules of tissues, called lymph nodes in which the can cer collects, forming there secondary lumps or mestatases, as the physician caljs them. The true carcinoma does not often get Into the blood vessels, and therefore it remains localized for a very consid erable time, so that the surgeon has an opportunity to remove it If the diagnosis is made. Another kind of cancer, called by thé physician sarcoma, spreads to the blood vessels and consequently is much more difficult to cure, because this spread ing takes place very early in the course of tho disease and the cells arc swept all over the body, starting new little tumors where they arc deposited. While cancer grows through the very tissues which surround it, it does not have roots as the quacks say. What are called roots are more frequently blood vessels leading from life cancer, or bits of fibrous tissue. When a quack assures a patient that he takes a cancer out "by 'the roots" he is talk ing nonsense. Home cancers grow very slowly, for instance, some of those on the skin may remain for 10 or 20 years without spreading any very great distance and without forming little lumps elsewhere in the body. Other cancers grow very rapidly and are fatal within a few months. Most cancers, however, re main local for a considerable period.
