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

agreeable time with a saloonkeeper who
left horrid smelly beer kegs lined along
the sidewalk. Really. Peter, I do dis

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

"Oh. Peter!" walled my wife.
"For heaven's sake. Man"." I gasped
In alarm, "'what's happened?"

Is Only Cure for Cancer
A. B M. A.. M. D. (Johns Hopkins).
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.

themselves surgeons. There are many
