American Red Cross ls leaching
Hundreds of Thousands Life
saving Methods.
The purpose of Instruction in First
Aid to the Injured offered by the Amer
ican Red Cross ls to trnln men nnd
women to administer First Aid tiout
ment promptly and Intelligently when
emergencies demund lt. First Aid
treatment IB not Intended to take the
place of a physician's service. A sur
geon should always be summonecd as
a precautionary measure where there
ls an Injury of any consequence, but
when one cannot be secured a few min
utes' delny may mean a fatality. In
such a case a person trained in First
Aid Is Invaluable not only to the in
dividual, but through him to the com
munity In which he lives.
There ls perhaps no why of ascer
taining the number of deaths or seri
ous disablements which recuit from
lack of proper safeguards or prompt
emergency treatment. It is safe to as
sert they number thousands dally.
There can be no doubt that the appli
cation of First Aid methods to each
case would Immeasurably lighten the
country's toll of suffering and death.
The dissemination of First Aid train
ing and information has already pro
duced a farreachlng and beneficial in
fluence In the prevention of accidents
on railroads, In mines and in great in
dustrial concerns. ?
The benefit of a widespread knowl
edge of First Aid In the event of a
great disaster, such as a train wreck,
an explosion, an earthqulke, etc., is
obvious. Laymen who have had First
Aid training can render efficient as
sistance. Many lives may depend upon
euch emergency care.
Red Cross First Aid work includes
(1) the formation and conduct, through
Red Cross chapters, of classes for In
struction in accident prevention and
First Aid to the Injured among men
and women in all communities and In
every Industry ; (2) the Introduction of
courses of Instruction In high schools
and colleges.
The Red Cross Is prepared to supply
First Aid books and equipment at rea
sonable prices.
Every person in this country able to
do so should, in his own interest, re
ceive Red Cross First Aid Instruction.
Information about the course and In
struction classes may be had at the
nearest chapter headquarters.
More than $6,000,000 has been spent
by the American Red Cross In aiding
tho Btrlcken people of Poland. The
organization has nursed the sick, fed
the starving, clothed the naked, shelter
ed the homeless, schooled the children
and cnrcd for the orphans there. It lins
conducted a relentless fight against
typhus, cholera and other terrible dis
eases. So today millions of men find
women In that resurrected nation
spcnk In grateful Appreciation of "The
Greatest Mother In tfre World."
Nearly 200 American Red Cross
workers are now engaged In relief ac
tivities In Poland. Four large relief
bases are In operation and eleven mo
bile units are In the field. During the
last twelve months this organization
was largely Instrumental in the re-es
tablishment of a million tefugees at a
cost for general relief of more than
$1,000.000. Last winter one-half mil
lion war orphans were aided material
ly, and since then a series of large or
phanages have been established to give
them permanent enre.
But for Amerlcon Red Cross old, of
ficials of Poland declared recently, mil
lions of people In that country would
have perished of diseuse, exposure or
stn rv? t! an the last eighteen months.
And the work there must be kept up
for another year.

Ugh! Calomel makes you sick. It's

Calomel is mercury! When it

crashes into it, breaking it up. Then
is when you feel that awful nausea
and cramping. If you nro sluggish,
if liver is torpid nnd bowels consti

Whether Or Not He Will Retain HI?
Profit Depend? Upon How Wisely
Ho Invests the Money.
The greatest corn crop in history ls
being harvested in America thisyear.
The present promise of 3,216,192,000
bushels of corn is over 90,000,000
I bushels In excess of any crop ever
'. grown and nearly 300,000,000 bushels
more than produced last year. The
condition of the crop as predicted by
the Crop Reporting Board of the De
partment of Agriculture is 24.3 points
higher than the average and the high
est since 1906. There will be about
200,000,000 bushels of oats more than
last year, the crop approximating
1,444,362,000 bushels.
Those figures, announced by the De
partment of Agriculture. Mean that
hundreds of millions of dollars will tro
Into the hands of the farmers of
America. How many of those mil
lions remain in thone bando and how
many are allowed te slip through
those hands depends upon the indi
vidual farmers themselves.
Not all, by any mean?, will be profit.
M is not now much the farmer gets foi*
btu orop but what ho is able to keep
that counts. If he ia led Into unsafe
investment, he will have no profits
even if he sold his crop for far more
than lt cost. If he waste? the money
on what he does not need or really
want he will have no profits. Even
if Hie farmer keeps the money he gets
for his crops, he may miss a good
part of his annual profits unless he in
vests it wisely.
But tho farmers of America cnn put
their crop dollars to work. They cnn
consolidate and hold their profits and
inoroaee them if thoy will. Liberty
Bonds at pr?sent prices 4*rTer an op
p/)rtimity to do both. These securi
ties not only pay a satisfactory inter
est, but they are sure to advance to
par at maturity. Tho monoy invested
in them is safe, because it ia backed
not only by the great crop itsolf but'by
tho prospect of all future crops and
the total wealth and taxing power of
the groatost government In the world.
The money so lnvestod is available
for uso almost as if it wore cash, for.
Liberty Bonds ar? a rocogntr.ed prime
security for any loan the farmer ie
likely to need.
What ls tho farmer going to do
wWh his crop monoy? Is he going to
waste lt or Invest it In speculative or
insocuro stocks, or ls he going to put
it into Wie securities of tho govern
ment In the management of which he
has an active part? Is ho going to
wind up the year without a profit In
spite of the great crops or is he go

them work for him? It 1? up to tho

What le perhaps one of the smallest
newspapers in the world, printed es
pecially for children in the primary

in Thrift and Savings Stamps. The
paper ta called "Tho School Thrifto

the tale of a dark blue camel whoso
thrifty ways induced him to save up
water in his hump.
This habit of his made him worthy
of an introduction to youngaters whose
saving ways were leading them to

stamps, and opened the way for a se
ries of tales, pink, and yellow, and
green, and brown, and gray, and
orange, all on colored Thrlftogram
paper printed for the purpose.
Besides these stories, the little paper
contains news of the doings ot school
savings clubs, and of tho interesting
.and novel ways lu which their mern
j hers are earning money. The Thlrfto

j division of the War Loan Organisa
tion for this district, and is malled
free of charge to any child who wants
it, although it is dosignod primarily
for the membors of school savings
