8 EVERYBODY i- PAGE It's A Mighty Good World After All By WINIFRED WHAT a g6od old world It Is to leave when you re coins to the hospital and may not come back. How bright the eun shines, how blue the -waters gleam, how sweet the roses blow Last night the stars were like great silver lamps set high in the velvet canopy of the sky. and the moon was silver, too. and veiled now and then "Kith gossamer and white The, sea gulls flew high above the. balcony, flying west to the beach That means a storm, they say. at sea. The great city roared below at the foot of the hill, like some giant tiger held but lightly in leash, and from the garden came the call of children play ing in the fragrant starlight. The books, too, on the table out there on the friendly porch. What good companions they have been how patient with everv mood, how full of quiet company. them so? There's to be a party next week old friends and new ones going to the woods for a few days in the green of growing things I shall not be with them; I wonder If they will miss me. and wish me well Will They Remember? That woman who came to see me yesterday she's always seemed such a gay, light-hearted llt'le thing, not much depth to her somehow she was dif ferent yesterday. She talked softly of old friends and old memories, and her eyes were full of kindness. I wonder if she suspects' Has she ever been sentenced to the hospital, and did she go smiling, with a dull pain at her heart? Perhaps that was why she was so kind We have so little Imagination, we poor mortals If we have never been through a thing ourselves. e know so little how to sympathize. "What shall I do about the children? Shall I tell them where I am going. and bid good-by? No what's the use? If it all turns out well, why shadow them with fear? i If ill but what is ill, after all? So one can live forever. It Is only an swering the call a little sooner, that is all. But. oh! there is so much to do how can I leave it all? And who will go on with it if I am gone? The little girl who loves me so, who will lead her In the gentle path that means happiness? Who will tame her wild heart and teach her patience to go along with the splendid courage that is hers? No one understands her as I do; no one will ever love her as I do. The boy is different. Life will alw-ays some easy to him. He is always contented, always happy, always Joyous. He will not go as far In the world u the girl, but what pleasant, safe and profitable paths there are he will find to walk in bless his loving, contented little heart' Will he remember, I wonder? he is so little now. Do vou remember people clearly that you knew when you were five years old? What did they mean when they kissed you and held you close to their heart? You won dered why they were so little interested in dolls and kites and things, and if you had dreamed that you would ever grow to be like them, old and quiet and a little sad, your heart would have broken then and there. Just to Sleep. What a brave thing life was going to be to you. when you were five do you remember? Either you were going to be a missionary or a circus rider. You never could make up your mind which. It would be fine to sing to the heathen in his blindness, and to live where there were palm trees and wild coeoa.nuts. and where you could wear clothes that looked like the pictur'es in the big Bible that your grandmother let you look at on Sundays. But think of the rapture of rose pink petti coats of tulle, and a snow white horse with a pink plume In his forelock, and all the girls you went to Sunday school with standing humbly on the side walk to see you pass in glory and In grandeur. And you were going to be so good alwajs, so generous, and so full of cour age, and so gay and light of heart. No failures for you. no mistakes, no hour of bitter loneliness. All roses. all sunshine the path ahead. And now well, it hasn't been so bad either There have been thorns, but, oh' there were roses, too Thre have been storms, but what is life with out them? The splendor of the thunder and the glory of the lightning how dull the long summer would be if there were no storms to stir it. Loe. friendship, faith, fidelity these things hae all walked with you. too. dear friends of faithful hearts. How many people have jou ever known who were really not kind to you' I have lived a long time, it seems to me. and I can count but three in all my life three treacherous failures poor things! poor things! I am glad I have no tragic treachery of mine to look back upon today, when I am under sen tence to the hospital. Good-Dj, old world for a little "We'll see." says the doctor, "we'll see." Well, we shall see and we will smile to see whatever it may be For after all. the future is like the past Never has there been anything that I could not bear so it is in nature When the strain becomes too hard we fall asleep.

THE "CLEAN-UP" SOCIETY. - ARY is very busy. i For days now I have seen 1 V 1 her bust,,nS prettily about. scribbling occasional notes tih a pad Automobiles call for her ire- quently. and, altogether, she seems very busy, indeed. 'Marj'." I Inquired one night, "what s up, anyway? You're by far the busiest person in the family." Mary glowed. "Peter," she. exclaimed naively, "I've Just been wondering If you'd notice, how dreadfully busy I really am. I honestly have waited. You know lots of people tell how men never notice what their wives are about, and I made up my mind I'd wait until you asked me.'' Well," I hinted mildly. "I certainly have noticed considerable activity of an er hum undomesuc nature. I Re tribute, a certain hole In my left sock and the fact that the, laundry Is late to some, of it. Mary frowned "The whole truth of the matter. Peter." she. exclaimed. Droudly. "Is that I belong to a clean-up society." "What, I ventured to inquire, is a clean-up society? Is It a pledse for all women to keep their homes In order be fore they undertake to do anything else?" Mary flushed. "Peter." she said.with dignity, "that's one of those horrid male things men say when they think tney re sarcastic xnai wasn't at all what I meant. And. be sides, most of the women In the society are not situated as I am. THEY have maids." What mere man ean reply to that economic reproach. THEY have maids. I inquired again what a clean-up so cieyt was. "It's for the purpose of cleaning vp the town in general," explained Mary, not intending. I'm sure, to be slangy. "To see that there are no stray papers lying about the streets and all that sort of thing. The high school boys pnd girls are helping us and we're having a most wonaerui time. I do enjoy it. It makes one feel so important and neces sary. Yesterday we had a most dis agreeable time with a saloonkeeper who left horrid smelly beer kegs lined along the sidewalk. Really. Peter, I do dis like to boast, but I'm by far the most important person In the thing. The men we expose most all frown at me."' I smiled at this somewhat doubUful distinction, and Mary went on cleaning up the town a commendable enoufch ambition perhaps, but one likewise fraught with disastrous consequences to my busy little wife. One morning the telephone at my office rang, and when I answered It somthing suspiciously like a sob came over the wire. "Oh. Peter!" walled my wife. "For heaven's sake. Man"." I gasped In alarm, "'what's happened?" I I've been arrested." "Arrested"' -Yes and I'm home now and and oh. Peter!" ' Tell me what has happened. Mary." I exclaimed sharply, "and don't be so hysterical. Why were ou arrested 7' "It's about the clean-up society." wailed Mary. "I I've been hurrying around making people clean-up In Mrs. Brown's auto, and and while I was gone a horrid man came sneaking and epi ing about the house and found I'd forgotten to put my ash can lid n. I carried something out and forgot and. oli. reter! he made the most horrible fuss. Just because there were a few flies and things buzzing about. He spoke of typhoid and ash-can regulations, and when I told him politely enough that I'd been so busy I had for gotten Just this once, he grew most of fensive and suggested that If one v. ere running a clean-up society the best thing was to enforce its principles at home first He's the saloon man who had the beer kegs about, and, oh. Peter! will j on come home now' I I may have to go to Jail I think he said " t i.-imrhed at the absurdity of Mary going to Jail over an ash can cover, but I went home dlstlnctlv thoughtfully.

H1RSHBERG A. B M. A.. M. D. (Johns Hopkins). i F ou are a woman over thirty, at of sixteen members of your sewing circle, or "ths dansant." tell them that two of the party will die of cancer. That Is, If they do not mark and inwardly remember the earliest tigns. two women in each "oyster shuckers" dozen will fall victims to this scourge. Moreover, one man In each dozen muBt die of It- Brief ly, of twelve laborers, financiers, editors, bookkeepers. ' merchants or others of the male division gathered to gether, one must succumb to this mysterious malady. Yet there Is hope at last even for the "one in twelve" and the "two in sixteen." Dr. Joseph C. Bloodgood. the great surgeon of the Johns Hopkin3 Hospital, has found that, incurable and ghoulish as cancer Is once it has a foothold, yet it Is absolutely preventable in 100 per cent of the Instances studied, when discovered in its earliest stages and boldly, bravely, without pride, prejudice or reluctance, cut away. The age-old and superstitious fear of the surgeon's scalpel, a tradition handed down since pre-bacterlologlcal days, is responsible for the increase, the widespread prevalence and the growing malignancy of little neglected "pim ples." "warts." "tumors" and "overgrowths. There are no medicinal cures for can cer. Even those put forth honestly and from relative ignorance have proved upon inquiry to be the very straw which broke the health-camel's back. I was taken In by one once myself. Even the most expert pathologist in the world cannot always tell a simple, seemingly unimportant bit of flesh from a cancer. Therefore, distrust all good physicians and all amateur specialists. Err quickly and at onco on the safe side and have the "cancer or the "trl fling" thing; removed by the knife. Nowadays no one dies by the knife. Even a sterilized guillotine would not kill, if it did not have thousands of pounds of weight attached to It and then cut the spinal cord and medulla oblangata in two. Herb doctors, friendly remedies, re ligion and household advce are often repLted to have cured cancer. The Su preme Being does not move thus his wonders to perform. AH such "can cers" are warts, scars, scalds, fleshy overgrowths, or other harmless tissue. As I have said, the untrained who "cure call all such .things cancers. Ex perienced surgeons and savants with their multi-millions of experience can not always tell a harmless growth from a cancer, especially as it begins: there fore, discretion Is the better part of In evitable death. You must have It cut out thoroughly and at once by the best surgean avail- able. Never by a skin-specialist, a fam- . eJugenerai interest. Be xcill not under ily doctor or In your own home. There tkL to orescribe or offer advieA tor in. are multitudes of doctors who call themselves surgeons. There are many others who perform numerouss opera tlons.
