Wri ?- tvarv -MS( r' Ty "V" " THE BEOAD AX, CHICAGO; MMSCH 25, 1916. PAG3 FOT Talks on HEALTH, CLEANLINESS, PROPER LIVING, SANITATION, ETC. BY Dr. W. A. DRIVER 3300 So. State Street Phode Douglas 3617 CUSANLINESS Physical aad MentaL "As a man thinketh so is he." Those "words are the product of the brain of the greatest devotee of -wisdom, according to popular opinion in the Jewish and Christian environments. As far as ocular evidence is concerned a person who presents a clean exterior is generally and popularly accepted as a clean individual physically and men tally in almost all but fortunately not in all environments. For the purpose of showing the inefficiency of mere outside cleanliness such as" the eye be holds of the person, let us call your attention to the fact that the physical man has a "feeding tube" called by some the inner man but known to the scientific world and to the physician in particular as the GASTBO-INTES-TINAL TEACT. It is not called GAS-TBO-ESTTESTINAL because gas often forms in the stomach or other parts of that tract. As a matter of fact gas does not form in the gastrointestinal tract of a wise person. Such a person keens clean internally as well as ex ternally. Such an individual is normal physically inside as well as outside; such an individual shows that priceless asset wisdom by eating the proper quantity as well as the proper quality of nourishment. Such -an individual takes the proper amount day and NIGHT by way of the ELEVATED window of the greatest demonstrable tho invisible factor FEESH AIE. Such a person takes daily that other indispensible, comparatively free tho visible chemical combination called WATEE and let it be understood that the wise person takes a plenty of water internally and externally via daily bathing the entire body by immersion in a bath tub of ample proportions and via frequently drinking UNADULTEB- ATED water several times daily. Let us pause here and now to ENJOY the greatest and freest gifts of all NA TURE'S BENEFACTIONS a drink of water and fresh air. Pause! "HEBE'S LUCK! Not even the cup that cheers can excel the two donations from PEOVIDENT NATURE'S LABOEA TOEY that like six feet of earth make us all of one size. "We are taught that the sage Solo mon also said: "Wisdom is the prin cipal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get under standing. "Wise persons are not gluttons for many reasons. They real ize that excess of food produces an un clean mind as well as an unclean gas trointestinal tract. And it does not require such wonderful psychology to understand that an unclean mind is an abnormal mind or in common language a diseased mind. Likewise an unclean gastrointestinal tract is an abnormal one, at the same time a diseased part of the body, capable of INFINITE HABM to every part of the body, pro ducing disease and its end product dis solution DEATH, just as the prover bial rotten apple will spoil a barrel. Gluttony also aids in producing wealth poverty as well as health (men tal and physical) poverty. A bad breath is not a sign of wisdom. It is an evidence of the worst type of pov erty mental poverty, foolishness that leads to physical poverty and purse poverty. Note the paradox: An unclean mind will produce by gluttony an unclean gastrointestinal tract and an unclean gastrointestinal tract will produce by the body fluids an unclean mind. The vicious cycle being established mental and physical diseases functional as well as organic follow, in accord with THE HIGHEST LAW the LAW OF NA TUBE. These diseases or rather this disease shows so many different symp toms that physicians are often bafiled as to the real cause which is obviously necessary almost always to know in order to effect a cure. And can the pa tient who has been unconsciously pro ducing the damage readily find the cause? It appears not, judging from Charles E.

Special Barney New some, Jr., a young Whito farmer from Clyattville, was a member of a White cap party on the night of February 10, attempting to run away from the neighborhood Will Clark, a Negro farm tenant. Will Clark fired a load of bird shot into Newsome's body and New- some died in a hospital here on March 3 at 11 o'clock at night. The shooting of Newsomo was not cleared up until his family made a statement concerning his connection with the white cap party. Newsome was married and the father of one child. Another member of the party was wounded by Clark, who made his escape and is still at liberty.

The MEDICAL PEOFESSION has its HANDS FULL to take care of the diseases of the people in a sensible, scientific and rational manner and the medicial profession devotes its life to the cause of HEALTH, mental and physical.

It knows that appendicitis, gastritis, pneumonia, ulcer of the stomach, dia betes, constipation and a host of other "DISEASES" have their fonsset ori gin in the BEAIN and BELLY, as designated by the terms faulty meta bolism, abnormal mode of life, derange ment of the vital forces and the plain old common sense word GLUTTONY. Baton Eouge, La. Southern Uni versity celebrated Founders' Day, March 9th. The exercises marked the Second Anniversary of the institution upon its new site. President J. S. Clark in opening the exercises reviewed the history of the reorganization of the institution. He called attention to the dilapidated con dition of things that existed two years ago. The opening of the insti tution suggested to him the history of the early settlers a great deal more than the history of an institution. "Two years ago," he said, "when we settled upon this spot, there was one temporary building 20x40 which served at that time as the main building of the university."

' "This faculty lived about in the cabins on the plantation and ate on a porch and often under trees and worked hard at whatever they were called upon to do, having no quarters, we were obliged to drink poor water out of an impure cistern or drink water from the river. "But, in the midst of all these hardships, I man aged to keep my teachers and students in good cheer." "Many of the teach ers had left their families behind, but they worked cheerfully and appeared to bo happy. Our tract of land con sisting of 540 acres was in a pretty poor condition, no ditches, practically no fences, but we went to work." Our class rooms and our shops were tem porary structures, but increased as the first year went on." "We have now, three excellent brick buildings, well equipped with modern furniture, and an excellent power plant which fur nishes light, heat and hot water to all of the buildings." "There are several temporary build ings on the campus that serve an ex cellent purpose. Southern university has a student body now of 447 persons, coming from all parts of the State, a faculty of 32 teachers, including the extension agents, a class of 20 persons to graduate from the Teachers' Train ing Course. Many of the students are well advanced in home economics, car pentry, agriculture, and blacksmithing. The school has increased 700 in at tendance over what it was two years ago. We are encouraged and feel that we have made considerable progress along the right line. We need the friendship of our White neighbors and if doing the right thing will win it, we are coinff to have it. I am pleased to announce that Southern University has a host of substantial friends among the White and Colored people. Wo stand greatly in need of a dining hall and agriculture building, and that I believe our friends in the coming legis- 1.1. Ml :o. ve. Here State Superintendent T. H. Harris was introduced and delivered a very able address. He said in part: "It seems to mo that some very sub stantial things havo been done hero. You have three good buildings, two nice dormitories, power plant and good quarters, but thero is an accomplish ment in my mind greater than these improvements, greater than any of these physical accomplishments, and that is, tho high esteem in which the school and its management are held by tho surrounding country and that is a .o- aoni mnrft than these buildings, more than class loom work, more than tho shop and field work that vmi aro doine. You havo been here for two years and I am very glad to say that tho opinion is universal in Baton Eougo and among other people who know something about this school, that you have made good and that it was a good thing to establish such an institution here, and'I hope that the conduct of your school in tho future will be such that this feeling will grow." "I am thoroughly convinced myself that the right kind of education is the best investment for ennobling a race no matter what the color is, but it is necessary for that people to sink into the good will of all the people of the State before we can make satisfactory progress for all the Colored race. You have made good up here for that senti ment. I meet men in Baton Bouge who were against locating this school here, but who are now telling me that Southern University is a fine institu tion and is making remarkable progress and that it is doing good work and that the education of the students is a sane, sensible education." "I understand you have but a little sickness up here; the reason for this is, you are observing the laws of health, you drink good water, you have proper bathing facilties, you keep the mosquitoes out, the grounds properly drained and you observe the other principles that enter into sanitary con ditions. I hope you are getting lessons in thrift. Don't throw useful things away, don't break things np, but learn to save and take care of what you have. This wastefulness can be applied to all of the people." "One kind of work is just as whole some as the other if intelligently done. It does not make any difference what kind of work people do if they live right and work profitably. Be loyal to Southern University." At the conclusion of the program, three pictures were unveiled: One of Booker T. Washington, Gov. L. E. Hall and State Superintendent T. H. Harris Mr. Harris expressed himself as being well pleased at the splendid progress Southern University has made' during these two years. "President Clark and his facultv." said he, need to be com plimented for the splendid manner in which they have carried on the work.' A. LINCOLN'S COACHMAN LIVES. Washington, D. C. Special.

There Is no doubt that tho original method of finding Are was by the fric tion of two pieces of wood No Greek or Roman army crossed a frontier without carrying an altar on which a sacred fire always burned.
